Are there any "special" instructions or advice that you would give? I've blacked out my Bold already and am moving on to a Curve. The only thing is that I'm not sure if the video on cnn.cn is leaving anything out like they did with the Bold video.

I know that they leave out the part with the mute and unlock buttons up top, are there anything else that I may need to look at? What pieces did you need to transfer from your original bezel to the new black bezel?

Also, do you have black buttons? Cnn.cn doesnt have any...

well its not that hard either lol.
a nail file did the trick for me. but i agree, take your time and know what you are doing

and not to steal your thread. but here is my phone with the black bezel and the g1 ball. it removes the silver lining around the scroll ball for a even more stealth look

I tossed on a black bezel the other week and it was a lot easier than I was expecting. Just take your time and it's all good. As for transferring stuff it's the button contacts and also there are two foam pieces that are recomended to transfer due to some people having sound issues (echoes I think) if you don't. I just peeled them up with a razor and went nice and slow. It makes it look so good. I'm going to have to get a G1 trackball too after seeing the photo!

Yes, just in black.... Unfortunately it's back-ordered... I'm waiting for it to come into stock so I can place my order....

I did order a yellow trackball which has arrived but I'm waiting for the door to come into stock because I'm also going to order that little plastic tool that they show people using in the instructional videos.... Got my T5 screwdriver with the yellow trackball.

Wolfgaze - T6 is the correct size.

I ordered the black Door from ebay it came way faster then the black bezel.
