    can you show us a picture?
    getting the silver case off costs me a lot of guitar picks and pints of my precious blood.

    I know, it took me awhile to get it open too. I think thats the most difficult part of the whole process. Now, im not sure how to get the black cover back on, lol!

    anyone know any tricks? it doesnt seem to wanna go back on!

    Yeah, I have bloody fingers too! All I can say is take your time, I messed up a couple of the iPhones and had to get replacement backs for them.

    Some iPhones are harder than others too, I had one with a series 5 screen and literally got everything off with a bobby pin in under 10 mins without a single scratch! It was done so well that later I replaced it at an apple store when I shorted it! eek!
