anyways, people have been asking me why i havent changed the front part of the housing yet. well thats cuz im missing a screw driver that is FUCKING HARD TO FIND!! T1, its so small that most of the shops/stores dont carry them. but whatever, i make do what i have, for now.
below is a walk thru of what i JUST did tonite! i obviously have a thing for white housings, AND red housing. but since the first change was already red, i decided to just splash on a little white on it. another reason is due to the matte housing color didnt seem to last for me. =( sigh, so hope this pearl white metallic color will last longer.
i was also very curious as to HOW to change the keypad, and key frame, and whether or not it can do RAINBOW on this blackberry..... because the initial assessment of it when i first opened it was pretty daunting.... but anyways, enough talking!! SCROLL DOWWNNNN =D
well this is what its all about!! soo excited hahaha
the keypad itself is the thinnest i've ever seen it on a blackberry. at first, i thought, hey is this safe/sturdy? but actually, this design eliminates the keys from falling off like all the previous keypads. as well as being so thin, u can actually feel the press of the dome a lot better. its like wearing a thin condom vs thick condom -.-
from the very beginning, they've always used this kind of technology for keypad input. the dome (that silver circle thing on the white sticker) actually has 3 small dots on it for some reason i dont know yet. and as u can see, i accidently ripped the white sticker =( good thing it wasnt connected to a wire or something... phew =\
u cant see how i did that. hahaha and no, i am not teaching anyone.
TADAAAA!!! oh yes, i made the 2 buttons blue as well for the light. haha
i quite like the combination =D
from this photo, u can actually see the minor gaps from the keyframe and bezel on both side. unfortunately, nothing i can do about this. but my guess is that this is coming from the bezel.
i guess this post just to showcase what i can do. after all, you would want someone who's done it before to work on ur phone. oh and let me tell you, this is HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED to do it on ur own if u are not experienced with blackberries tear down.
annndddddd, final question. HOW MUCH?! hahaha well, i have yet to figure out how to charge this, but a replica of my housing would be around RM300 range or a little less.
OH, PERFORMING ANY OF THESE THINGS ON HERE WILL VOID UR WARRANTY.
