Just ordered mine, I opted for the MMI Blue !!!!! Also went ahead and purchased a 16GB logic board. Figured since I'll have to open it, might as well make it truly worth the effort!

^Biggest thing is not getting in a hurry. Treat everything as glass.
There's not as many parts to take apart as it sounds. Main pieces like the screen assembly, mainboard, battery and dock connector.
Then you've got several smaller items like headphone jack/flex cable assembly, buttons, vibration motor, etc.
But thats basically it.

I just ordered a set of three back covers from Ebay and a Tool Kit. All for less than 15 dollars.
What do you guys think of my purchase?

Yeah, a 16gigger would have been a cool purchase, but financially I am still ahead. I bought my 2g 8gb for 75.00 from a Baylor University new grad who couldn't get used to it (manicured nails). Too bad princess !!!!! And got the 16gb logic board for 115.00 !!!!!!

oh man. I'm an idiot. I bought the wrong ones. Well I'm off to ebay again to buy the correct one. This sucks.Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.
