Galaxy Nexus Torn Down in Quest to Fix Power Button

When most users tear down their devices, it’s to fix something. That is, unless you’re XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler, who just does it for fun. When tearing down a device, users usually need a guide of some sort and, of course, the replacement parts necessary to make the fix. Now, Samsung Galaxy Nexus users have a tear down and fix tutorial that’ll help them get into the device, fix what they need to fix, and back out without damaging anything.

The video and tutorial was created by XDA Forum Member armanatz, who originally wrote it up to help those who need to fix their power button. However, since that involves taking the device mostly apart, this method could also be used for the replacement of other basic parts. However, it’s probably not the best option if you need to use it to replace the mobo or other core components.

With the appropriate tools, you can get it taken apart and put back together in about 20 minutes as shown in the video provided. Also, don’t forget that messing around with the phone’s hardware is potentially risky if you don’t know what you’re doing. So if you decide to do it, you do so at your own risk. To learn more, hit up the teardown thread.

Microsoft Reaches Pre-Install Agreement With New OEMs

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta.
