    That looks amazing. Apple should take some hints if they ever want to make a Project Red iPhone!

    They do certain ipods in an array of colors....why not with the iphone. But then again, if they did that I wouldnt have people drooling over mine

    Its not my "daily driver" but I took it with me 1 day to use...and had several people salivating over it

    Hey, how does opening up a 3G compare to a 2G? I've opened up my 8GB 2g iphone, and it was pretty easy... Are there any complications for opening up a white 3G? If it ends up looking too difficult, I might just save some money and o the colorware route.

    ^^Well, the colorware route will be alot more expensive....but you wont have to do it yourself.

    IMO the 3g is easier to disassemble than a 2g. But its also more "stubborn" and not very giving, everything has to be right.

    To do the swap the entire phone has to be broken down, since everything but the screen assembly is built into the housing. Unlike a 2g where the housing comes off basically by itself, minus the "little" pieces (buttons, headphone jack, flex cable, etc, etc.). Anyhow, check post 1 for an idea.


    On a side note - Me and one1 are actually trying to track down a short in Project Red right now....as the phone was basically trashed when I bought it (bought real cheap) and Im basically bringing it back from the dead.

    I think I'm going to do it how you did it. Sometime in the future just buy a decently trashed phone for cheap and make it nice.

    ^Its more fun sometimes when you "dont really care" or your not worried about having a cellphone you need to use the next day

    I've got 7 different iphones sittin around right now, from my "daily driver" to a couple projects to just plain broken.

    hahahah, I know what you mean. Thats why I'm goin to plan and save a bit for to buy another. It's fun to work on something that doesn't really matter if you mess up, no worries when you doing it. However, when you got it up and running like a champ you feel really satisfied and great. That is the really reason why I want to take up a project like this. Know what I'm trying to say?

    That's looking pretty sweet! Red definitely stands out real nice.

    So you can swap out an 8gb board for a 16gb board? Like plug and play?

    ^Not really. I keep check on ebay, if you know the insides/outs of the phone you can determine what is actually wrong with it by the dumb descriptions people give and Im not scared to ask em questions, I only look at stuff from "good" sellers. Its a gamble of course, luckily I havent lost yet.

    Craigslist sometimes, but not really. Had a friend break one, bought it from him...

    Pretty much the same places you would buy a working iphone from.

    On a 3g....the comm board and mobo are together.....so yeah you can swap the whole mainboard, just like plug/play.

    The only ones ive seen on ebay are really, really screwed up; yet they still try to sell them for like $150-$200

    ^Yeah....there's alot of that. I bought this (red) 3g for $165. Basically could have fixed it with a new LCD ($85)...but I wanted to play.

    Also, I have found several that diagnosing (from the pics/descriptions) I knew it would be a warrantied repair...so, covered by Apple.....

    I have bought 4 iphones (3 2g's and 1 3g) all for between $125 - $200.....and Apple gave me New one's for all of them .....the 3 2g's I sold for $400 each within hours on ebay. The 3g I kept.

    That black 2g I posted pics of a few posts back is a 16gigger, bought it for $240 with a busted screen, took a good screen off a 8gigger I had and swapped em (actually, one1 did cause I had no time) and then sold the 8gigger for $30 MORE than I had in it ....so do the math I had a perfectly working 2g 16gigger for $210...well, + the $30 for the new black housing.
