    First of all, there's no need to type in Caps....

    Second, you can just type 'Blackberry Bold disassembly' on Youtube search box and there're a few videos out there....

    Ok - first take your keyboard off Caps Lock - kinda makes it hard to read your post. Second, use the "search" feature and you will find several threads dedicated to modding your Bold. Otherwise, welcome!

    I was nervous as all get out, but I just watched the video cnn.cn put on YouTube, bought the tools when I ordered the parts, and went really slow! lol. The only other thing I stumbled on before hand that helped a lot was someone made a post much like this and someone let him know the branded bottom piece has some two sided tape type stuff on it so you have to keep prying on it for a while before it will come off.

    "First" I don't think the OP wanted a typing lesson.

    "Second" How does it make it hard to read when its in all Caps?

    Thanks for trying to call me out. I actually wasn't the only one to request he take it off all caps. When typing in all caps you might as well add an exclamation point at the end of every sentence. Is this the first forum on the internet you've used?

    If you didn't know.. Typing in CAPS in a forum is the same as screaming at someone in real life. You just don't do it. When you type in caps, people reading it think you are screaming at them..

    Yes it looks scary but don't be scared, the bold can handle it
