    Hello guys,
    Was wondering if it's possible to change the iPad 1 glass from black to white, is it possible? And if it is, where can I buy a white glass for iPad 1?

    Thank you,
    Yours, MrOmer. :)

    Why would you want to do such a thing?

    The white is distracting and the best/black one pwns for realz!

    Try this and this. :) Seriously doesn't the iPad 1 use clips and the 2 use glue to attach the screen ?

    Thats actually a good idea!

    If you dont like the result, you could always use paint thinner to remove the spray paint.

    Get a white front bezel skin from somewhere like Gelaskin, that way you can change it back to black with no hassles and you won't do any damage.

    I did that for my white iPad 2 to make the bezel black :rolleyes: (hey it was either get the white iPad or wait three weeks for a black :p)

    Paint thinner ? Nooooo. Just repaint it black. And while he's at it, buy a can of matte clear coat and spray paint the screen to get rid of the glossiness.

    And distracting in 93% of usage situations, the main reason I ebay'ed my wht verizon 64 for a blk at&t 64, the white bezel was not working for me =p

    You mean distracting during 93% of those situations where it could be distracting, right? Because I have yet to find ANY situation where the white bezel is distracting. I guess it's a matter of subjectivity. Or one being anal about minor things.

    Spray paint it, it's the only way.
