How To Disassemble Your BlackBerry Guide
After reading numerous threads asking about how to disassemble a BlackBerry, for various different reasons, I decided to compile a few useful videos.
Please Note : This is only meant as a reference tool and a quick way to point to disassembly videos. I will not go into detail about the disassembly process within this thread.

Changed Housing - Now No Signal
I changed the housing on my 8310 using these instructions as a guide and now I get no signal and network info is no longer listed on the phone settings. I cannot identify any damage, but replaced the midboard on the off chance that I damaged the antenna. Still no luck. Any ideas or fixes? Thanks.
