    Hmmmmm for 100 bucks I'd be down for that. Hell it can't be any worse to do than a 3g screen replacement. Which might I ad sucked cause I got the cheapo glass and had to mess with all that friggin 2 sided tape.

    I'm considering doing a white back but keeping the front black. Has anyone seen only the back panel for sale anywhere?

    I thought about doing the same (if I ever get the courage to take apart a new iPhone 4)

    i'd probably give it a few more weeks until all the parts are actually attached to the plates, especially having the camera not covered, touching the lens can damage it :-/

    but I agree the black front + white back + black bumper = WIN :)

    I wonder how long it will be before ColorWare and companies like it start releasing multi-colored backs, since they're so easy to replace. Or even plastic ones, for that matter.

    The rear glass is 800rmb which equals approx $120usd.

    The front glass is 385rmb which is approx $55usd.

    Plus the home button which is 85rmb which is approx $12usd.

    Seems like the prices are grossly inflated due to the white iPhone still awaiting release.

    Personally I think the white iPhones look a bit odd!

    steps for success:

    1. buy black iPhone 4
    2. buy white back piece, front piece and home button
    3. sell on eBay claiming it's a prototype (since it says XXGB and other info is all XXXXX'd out)
