    Default Swap DAC internals to a Q10 housing

    Since we all now know that we will keep the DAC and they won't be remotely blocked or killed by BBRY, how many of you are looking forward to swap the DAC internals to a Q10 housing?

    I know I'm doing it and probably Ben, not sure who else would do it.

    Also let's post links where We find Q10 parts.

    EDIT:

    So far the websites to get the Q10 parts:

    1) eTradeSupply
    http://www.etradesupply.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=q10

    2) CNN.CN
    http://cnn.cn/shop/q10-c-1425_200_1451.html

    3) UK Shop
    http://www.uk-mobilestore.co.uk/prod...tery-Door.html

    They will have the battery cover in stock around the 20th of June, better priced than etradesupply.

    EDIT #2:

    TOOLS NEEDED
    1) Torx T4
    2) Torx T3
    3) Y shaped screwdriver 1.5

    I think I would also do it too because I was thinking about accessories they wouldn't fit our devices so that's one reason why I would change the housing. The other is that it looks sexy!!

    We need to ask BB for OEM housing. I am sure they could provide it for cheap cause it costs almost nothing to produce them. It is too expensive to buy it from retailers and they do not have all the parts.

    The DAC has a better design than the Q10, so I just want a rubberised version of the DAC. This hard plastic is too slippery.

    This^

    I don't see why people are wanting to switch the DAC housing to a Q10 housing. Meh, anyone with a couple hundred bucks can go get a Q10, but there are only 1500 DACs. I don't understand why anyone would spend hundreds of dollars to make the unique and rare DAC look like the mass produced Q10. I certainly wouldn't.

    I agree with Saiga, I will keep my DAC.. The main reason is there are only 1500 in the world. It is priceless.

    I think the Dev Alpha A cases may have existed because they were originally supposed to be BlackBerry Colt cases. Lol

    Maybe not though, I agree, I'd love a case for the DAC. Especially since the hard plastic is very easily scratched on this phone.

    Here it is with some of the parts off. Couldn't get any further as it has those odd 3 prong screws and I don't have one of those.

    May I please have your old DAC housing parts if you successfully transplant the internals? I'd like to have spares in case I ever need to replace a damaged part.
