Default Changing lid backs on a 10 - 10-28-2009, 04:55 AM


I've found pockets of good information here for my issue, but I'm thinking there might be something easy I haven't thought of yet.

I just received a brand new 10 with the edge-to-edge display. The problem is it has one of those terrible new designs on the back (not by my choice and returning isn't an option), and I just want a standard black back if I can find it. From the service manuals, it looks like you're not meant to disassemble the edge-to-edge displays making it harder to replace the back panel.

What I'm hoping to find out is:

1) Is there way to order a new black panel?

2) If so, does anyone have experience replacing it on the newer displays?

3) I thought about the obvious skin solution, however that still leaves the edges exposed...and this thing is ugly enough to need it all covered. Skin recommendations would be helpful though

Thanks for your help
