    Default iPhone 3G backing
    Hey guys, I have filed the backing of my iPhone 3G black to get rid of the major scratches. Looks good matte and most scratches are gone. But I do wanna put the gloss back on so I can sell it in a couple months. I was just wondering, do you guys think it would work if I got some clear gloss spray paint and put it on the back of my phone?

    Should I avoid getting that paint on the camera, would that make things blurry? Ill probably tape the lens so I wont get paint all over it.

    Thanks in advance

    If you're gonna paint it I'd recommend taking the phone apart and painting the back by itself.
    Have they released the jailbreak in the app store yet?

    :P if I had nerves of steel to take my phone apart I would have just bought a new OEM housing. I was just gonna seal the crevices on the devices and spray a clear coat to get the gloss back.

    Took mine apart, painted that back. Turns out better than if you buy it from ebay as those look crap and flake easy...
