    I seem to be inexplicably drawn to procedures on how to take apart your iPhone. I don't know why since I have no personal interest in taking apart my iPhone. So hopefully this will be the last one, and fortunately, it appears to be the most complete set of instructions.

    iFixit posts nice step-by-step guides on how to install/replace the following parts on your iPhone:

    - SIM Card
    - Antenna Cover
    - Headphone Jack
    - Rear Panel
    - Camera
    - Front Bezel
    - Logic Board
    - Communications Board
    - Battery
    - Display Assembly

    In particular the Rear Panel disassembly instructions appear to involve less Adhesive Remover than previous instructions. Conveniently, iFixit also sells these iPhone parts individually.

    So, you want to take apart someone else's? Maybe KT will let you. At worst, the conversation would make a good blog entry. :D

    Whoa! There's no way I'd take a chance on voiding my iPhone warranty or even worse unintenionally damaging it while trying to do a repair myself :eek:

    This is because the instructions they provide are only for removing the easy parts! If you wanted to use the CNN.cn black back, you have substantially more work to do since it does not come with any of the metal attachments. I couldn't find anywhere on iFixit that deals with disassembly of all the tiny structural pieces on the backplate.

    Somehow, I was hoping for a hidden, "top secret" 3G chip :eek:

    Haha, I wouldn't even attempt to take my phone apart. I would either lose something or break something guaranteed.
