    Hey guys,
    just wanted to run this by the people here in case someone else has tried it.

    I'm using a Glas TR with the standard Spigen black button installed. I want to switch to the Aluminum button but the jelly button seems to be stuck on pretty hard. Any tips or tricks for removing it? I wouldn't wanna remove the Glas to get it off.

    i took an exacto knife and stuck it into the jelly button, they i slowly pried it off. Make sure you don't stick it too far in, or else you'll scratch the button. You might be able to do the same thing with a toothpick without the worry of scratching the button itself.

    I used a very thin eyeglass screwdriver and gently lifted off the jelly part that got my girl to take the rest off with her nails..........

    Don't use a knife. You'll likely scratch the home button under the spigen.

    Take a thin piece of plastic, like the one that they came on, bend it, and then work it under the button. I managed to get mine off that way so I could reposition it.

    Same thing I did. Had to be extra careful.

    Thanks everyone. In the end I chickened out of using a knife and just used nails... with some perseverance, it came off.

    this may be a stupid question, but was the iphone home button sticky after you got the sticker off?

    It was and was a pain to clean up the residue especially with the glas around the button. But all good now.

    Thanks for the answer. I think the buttons look cool but I couldn't take the sticky residue clean up afterwards. It would drive me insane, lol.

    Weird. I didn't have any residue when I removed mine. The button came off the adhesive but the adhesive came off as a single sheet.
