Hello fellow BB'ers iam very new to having a BBp and i am a problem solver not sure if this has been done or not but hey why not post it
i got to thinking about how sweet it would be to have a color ball and heard about people coloring there led and thought to my self hmmmmm so here it goes total cost under ten bucks
You can remove the trackball really easily, just use a fingernail under the chrome plastic ring at 12 o'clock and prise it away, then carefully run finger nail around in a circular motion until it is fully released.
The trackball itself just pulls out, it only fits in one way so no worries about replacing this and the chrome ring fits back in the way it came out.
You should note that the ring has no securing tabs at the 12 o'clock position, this guarantees alignment.
Lol this is way cool. I have done the sharpie and scotch tape before, but it ended badly. Unfortunately, I broke the chrome ring's little attachers. Luckily tho, we were able to take it in and have it replaced under warranty. So I have a nice new Blackberry Pearl with a BRIGHT white trackball, and I'm proud to have it. Lol Maybe I will try this when I can actually be more careful with the chrome ring. GREAT Idea tho!
