HTC Titan Tastefully Undressed, Touchscreen Blushes

By now, we’ve all become familiar with the term XDA Unboxing. Thanks to fantastic work from XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler, we have been made privy to deepest internals of various modern devices.

After an unfortunate affair involving your standard, everyday washing machine and the lovely HTC Titan, XDA Member Advocate Admin egzthunder1 found himself with a water damaged device. Turning pain into pleasure, egzthunder1 then created a guide on how to dismantle the device.

Well, due to an unfortunate incident between my Titan and a washing machine, I decided to take it apart to try and clean it (and to remove a constantly on vibrating motor). Since there is no guide for this device anywhere (quick google search yielded nothing), I decided to create one myself. So, if you are ready to roll, lets take this sucker apart…

While certainly not for the faint of heart, the guide walks users through the steps of opening the device and reaching its core components. Additionally, the guide highlights many of the dangers and pitfalls faced in the process, such as watching out for small and easy-to-tear ribbon cables. Tools for the job are a Torx T6 screwdriver and a pair of tweezers. However, a heat gun and case opening tool are also required if you intend on separating the screen from the plastic frame.

If you’re looking to dismantle your devices or simply have a morbid curiosity regarding the internals of a modern flagship device, you’ll find what you need in the original thread.

Microsoft is preparing a monumental release with Windows 10, and it could easily be one of the biggest developments in operating system history.
