    I work with a lot of electronics on take apart a lot of different devices, so the question is has anyone explored the insides yet and successfully put it back together? It looks pretty easy other than the front glass thats glued down. Please no flaming or sarcastic comments. I have no problems and I'm just curious. I'm thinking about getting an eBay one to take apart.

    Yeah I've seen that but they never tell you on how to install the glass, that's what I would like to know.

    since you're on like your 18th replacement EVO, i don't think you should tinker.

    just try to enjoy your device.

    best wishes.

    Or you could just stay out of my threads, you have no useful info and nothing but sarcastic rude comments.

    Guys settle down. Try to stay on topic instead of arguing with each other.

    Not trying to be rude or whatever but why do you want to take it apart?

    I imagine there's some sort of clips and adhesives holding the glass.

    If the glass is glued down, more than likely you will need to hit it with a hair dryer for a minute or so. I opened up a refurbished unit a few weeks ago just check out the internals but never got down to the glass.

    I generally only take things apart when they are broken. Exploration surgery isn't the best idea with a phone like this ( I can understand the curiosity though). That Ifixit guide is a good place to start though.

    Well for starters I love electronics, and I love seeing what's in them. I'm not planning on taking mine apart at all. I plan on getting a broken one and fixing it and reselling it. There's nothing wrong with my current one. I have fixed a few psp's and resold them. That's all.

    There are a few on eBay with broken glass and would like to fix them and sell them. This device is still in high demand and I thought I could make a little extra cash.

    It's the front glass/digitizer that seems to be the tricky part, I don't know what I could use to glue the new part down.

    The digitizer and the glass can be seperated with a hair dryer and the replacement glass already has the adhesive on it.

    Maybe you'll do a better job than the factory

    Really, good to know. I don't know if I will get some extra cash to get one but if I do I'll post a tut on how here. I'm not taking my current one apart unless I have a problem. It looks like a piece of cake to take apart compared to the palm pre. I got so sick of the loose slider that I took it apart and fixed it myself.
