Is there a particular way they should be taken off to prevent damage?

Thanks for your help.
Has anyone tried that really thin teflon plumber's tape they use on threaded pipe ends? That stuff works in the tight confines of a threaded fixture - maybe you could use that to remedy the squeaky sides.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it

I have been making wallpapers and avatars for a while now when I get bored or get a new phone. Usually my application of choice is Macromedia Fireworks..it's fairly easy to learn.

How did you separate the front and back? It's connected at the top of the unit, but I'm having a tough time getting them apart (I've got the side rails off).

some dissassembly stuff

there are 6 screws, 4 for the bottom housing and 2 under that holding the top housing. remove stuff in the following order:
sidegrips, bottom housing screws, bottom housing, top housing screws, top housing. the keypad is fitted into the top housing during assembly. be extremely careful not to touch the lcd because you will contaminate it exxxxtremely easily. the lens is a lot more durable so if you are trying to remove lint or something be super careful with the LCD.

to remove the sidegrips easily:
actually its not easy to remove them perfectly, you have to be extremely careful, pull them out from the bottom so that the first clip is out and then jiggle it off to loosen up the adhesive. be extremely careful because they are prone to bending.

to remove the bottom housing easily:
unclip them on the sides (can be done with tweezers) and then hold it with two fingers in the sd slot, there are 4 clips there. jiggle that a bit and then pull the housing towards you and it'll come out.

How do you change the actual color of the trackball?

If he did it like other people I've heard, he'd use a colored Sharpie. I believe on the LED itself instead of the trackball.
