I'd like to change my back housing as is all scratched, well i checked amazon ebay etc but some reviews really put you off like the case doesnt fit... The camera keeps falling out.... Is not as good as the original etc etc is there a trusted place where to get replacements parts?

    You should not risk with that. Send it for repair to the authorized service centers only.

    Order from ifixit.com their iPhone parts are Genuine. Changing the back glass of the iPhone 4 is the most easy part of the repair.I know you can do it, watch the video from their site for the instruction

    All you have to do is remove two screws and the backplate slides off. If you want to be cool, you can even get the clear back for your phone. They do charge a bit more than other sites, but I would trust their parts over most other sites.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Authorized service centres would be a safe bet.
