    Oh man, that's such an awesome mod. I would personally love an iPhone like that because it would be rare, since most people I know don't even know how to jailbreak their devices.

    Thanks man. Got my LCD this weekend and put it in in no time. Piece of cake compared to the glass and digitizer replacement. When I fixed the glass earlier I ended up scraping off the rubber gasket because I thought I had to to get the glass separated. Anyway, I figured I would try to replace it with something so that dust didn't keep falling in there. I was wondering if anyone else has tried this. I bought some rubber electric tape from Lowes and it did the trick. I first tried to cut a thin strip and tape it to the outside of the frame. That didn't work out so well because the rubber tape was just a little too thick. I almost broke the thing again trying to shut it. And then again trying to open it when the home button got stuck and the thing wouldn't turn on. Anyway, I took the tape off and put the phone back together. then cut a thing piece of tape and put it on top of the phone where the screen and bezel meet. Then took a case opener tool and pushed it into the crack. I think I could have taken my time and made the seal look like it was never opened, but I actually felt like using my phone after the screen had been broken for so long so the seal is a little bumpy in some spots. I don't mind though because it does what I intended it to do (get rid of the light leak and keep out debris.) Anyone else fixed this in another way?

    Is the swap harder on a 2g or about the same difficulty?

    Yeah, it is harder. LCD and glass are glued to each other. You need to order the whole assembly which is around $150. Others will say that they have done it by carefully prying off the old glass from the lcd and gluing a new glass piece on. I suspect that those people are ebay sellers trying to rip people off by making them believe it is possible.

    ^Yup, screen swap is easier on a 3g....for few reasons...as stated the parts are separated, and the screen assembly itself is a separate piece on a 3g, unlike the 2g where everything is built into the screen.

    I've only just seen this thread - the red iPhone looks really good.

    I reckon I could get my phone apart, no problem.

    I also reckon Hell would freeze over before I got it back together though.

    I just got one of those exact same cases, and it looks great. But the quality is EFFING HORRIBLE!!!! The case doesn't fit right after mulitple times taking it apart and test fitting and trying to make it fit. I have an extremely annoying gap all the way around the edge of the bezel. The paint on it is flaking badly and there are really fine hairline cracks around the volume rocker, and the silent switch, and the volume buttons do NOT click. I have to mash them real hard. The bottom where the connector is has a very big gap as well.I'm confident in my skills of reassembling electronics, and this is not very well made. I wouldn't recommend buying one of these from ecaseshop from my own experience. If CPJR got a good one and everything fits, he's lucky. Mine is horrible.

    ^I use oem buttons and bezel. Also, yes....the housing and bezel alignment is VERY hard. I have done a couple now and the one im currently using is PERFECT, but it took me prolly 1 hour just messing with the bezel, working with only 1 side at a time...you cant try to glue all sides at once, cause it'll be impossible to align. I have no cracks. And the buttons being hard to press is directly related the how things are aligned on the inside. Again, it just takes some practice.

    But....yeah, those aftermarket housings are just like anything else aftermarket.......not as good as OEM
