Thanks for this info. i hadn't noticed this little piece so I've now taken it all apart again and transfered it over.

Yeah, I almost missed that as well. Thankfully (really, thankfully?) I am so OCD that I checked and double-checked before calling my work done.

Looks great everyone!

Curious for those of you who ordered from cnn.cn that are from Canada, how long did it take for you're shipment to arrive?

I have also heard but not seen any pictures of people using coloured cellophane but that sounds like its a bigger pain in the ass.
Thanks for the tip, I will try latter but a bit scarry to open it

Scary, a bit. Fun, though, if you are into this sort of thing.

Finally got my bezel replaced today. I still haven't received the one I ordered via snail mail on 10/02. I ended up overnighting the buttons and bezel.

The whole process took me about 10 min and that was with my coffee shakes! lol

One awesome thing I've noticed...the standby button is raised on the black bezel and MUCH easier to press. On the silver bezel, it was recessed and I stopped using it cause it was to hard to depress.

Overall, very happy with this black bezel

Ordered a black bezel about a week ago from cnn and it arrived today, used snail mail to Canada. It's really not that difficult, took me 10 min and it looks great.

Maybe if you start a new thread instead of posting your request in this one? Just a thought.

I don't know how much difference it makes, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to move it, you know?

Do you have to take it completely apart like the video shows or only to a certain point?
