    Anyone smart enough to remove the cover should be able to find a glue that works. Do you pull the wings off of flies too?:eek:

    I can't wait till someone offers the black oem back installation. It will be the HOTNESS! I'm too chicken to do it myself.

    rather than start a new post, i figured i'd just re-ask this question...

    any idea what type of glue this is? or more importantly how you remove it? it's a hard cement-like adhesive and the metal portions along the sides of the phone are extremely brittle.

    dude rather then risk it just get these guys to do a compete custom job on yo piece. and im pretty sure they warranty it anyways. for a year.

    do it do it!:apple:

    i had colorware paint an old 4g ipod a few years ago. while i was pleased with the results it was too expensive then, and the iphone is more than double what they charged for ipods. so no, i'm not going that route. two, i already have the black housing and everything transferred from the silver with the exception of the metal side slats.
    warranty's are nice and all, but if something breaks, i just buy a new one, i typically don't mess with warranties.

    The only blue glue I've ever seen is blue locktite, but that's definetly not locktite. I wouldn't worry to much about the glue, either use a c.a., or tiny dabs of silicon, as it's much less brittle.

    i was more looking for a good way to remove the glue. i planned on using superglue to reinstall everything, but the problem is getting the stuff OFF the original backing. apple used friggin cement on this thing!
