That'd be appreciated. I'll probably get the cyan (maybe I'll look
for a white ;-)) as, like you, the thought of a lesser spotted 64GB cyan
appeals to the geek in me for whom an N9 isn't already niche enough ;-)

I'll have to get past the next couple of weeks at work, but then I'll have
time to think - and any time you can spare to assist would be appreciated.
Beer/Amazon voucher/donation to charity of your choice will, of course, be
available :-)

Hey guys, I'm trying to change to cyan from black but the screen won't just come off. I'm pressing hard and have even dent the side but no avail. I think any harder I'll end up breaking something. I'm pressing on the white thing that's visible as suggested in the video but it's not working for me, any suggestion? Thanks.

EDIT: By the way, has anyone replaced the USB flap? If so can you please advise how it can be taken off without breaking it that is

i tried both colors, first changed my black 16 gb to cyan, went for some days, then back to black for some days and then finally white, which I will keep, because it looks awesome!!

i got pretty good at it, and finally mastered the technique, i can disassembly and reassembly in less than 20 minutes. It shouldnt be hard, you just need the right tools, so you dont strip the screws. The russian video is well explained, the tricky part is unclipping the screen. Everything else was just plain easy.

Everything is working fine, antennas, camera, flash, jack and buttons, im glad i changed my case, because the black one was wearing off. If you have any specific question go ahead
Hi few questions if you don't mind

1. Was it hard to take the screen off the first time? I just couldn't take mine off so gave up
2. Can you advise how to safely remove the USB flap coz its not shown in the videos I've seen so far?

Thanks..

The left notch (screen facing up) was a little hard to pop open first time. Just make sure your screwdriver/whatever is far in enough to touch the white bit and shove up really hard. It may help to pop the other side out first and loosen up the screen a bit by running a flat plastic thing in between the screen (top edge) and chassis.

Thanks for the info... btw, how would I pop the other side of the screen? Also, regarding flap you mean open around 45 degree and pull away in the same 45 degree angle? How about putting a new one, push in in the same direction? Thanks again...

Well, the right edge is easy because you can put a screwdriver in and twist it to get the leverage. The left edge doesn't have the bottom interior surface, so you end up denting the polycarbonate if you push it.
Flap - yes - pull and push at a ~60 deg angle. It's just a bit of plastic that clips onto a metal rod internally - there's nothing to break unless you twist it or do something wacky with it.

I am hoping to have a Cyan 64GB N9 as well soon or just wait for a White 808 PV, not sure yet.

If I should manage to damage my N9 during the replacement from black to cyan, my replacement will be exactly a White 808 PV. (And meanwhile I would have to go with that shitty Lumia 800 that's in my drawer...)
