Default Disassembly: Blackberry Javelin 8900; Pictures.

Please Login to Remove!

Put together a little tutorial on taking the Javelin apart, hope it helps.
Feedback is much appreciated.

Remember: Take your phone apart in a clean area, and keep everything organized. Also keep in mind how you took the phone apart seeing how you are most likely going to put it back together. Remember to have the necessary tools to take you phone apart before trying.

Best uses for this: Bezel replacement, cleaning trackball/keyboard.

Note: taking your phone apart voids any warranties you may have on it. Do so at your own risk.




























Hope this helped out some, any feedback on what you'd like edited and/or put in would be great.

I've disassembled my 8900 about 11 times and I've found the easiest way to separate the bottom cover is with your fingernail... Just pull down on the side of the cover with your finger nail and it pops right off...

Yeah anything you could slip in there and pry is your best bet.
I've noticed the first time is the hardest, with the glue being fresh.

This is very interesting. I hope I never have to do this - but if I do . . .

Thanks.
