Replacing the back (but not with more glass).
Does anyone know of a way to safely remove the glass from the back of the phone? Mine was dropped onto carpet from about two feet withing six hours of me getting it, and now the back is cracked. It doesn't look as bad as a lot of others, but I still would love to have something other than glass back there (a nice, dark, hardwood, or even just some plexiglass/plastic). I've looked into the chemical side of things a little, and it doesn't appear that the type of adhesive used on the glass can be removed with a solvent that won't harm the phone. This leaves three choices: A, use a heat gun (risky because of the NFC and antennae back there. B, find a chemical reaction that will remove the adhesive (potentially harmful to the phone, materials may be hard to come by, lots of work to figure out). C, pry the glass off (not as clean, could get cut on it).
