MyTouch 4G Tear Down Guide

There are many instances where it would be preferable to fix one’s own device rather than sending it away to be fixed by the pros. One reason is that you wish to maintain your root access. Another is that perhaps you simply like your specific devices because it overclocks well. In any case, fixing a device yourself can be challenging when you don’t know what you’re doing. Thankfully, there is now a tear down guide for the HTC MyTouch 4G similar to the recently undressed HTC Titan.

XDA Senior Member repairsuniverse has produced a step by step teardown and rebuild method that will help users, tear down their phones without fear of screwing things up. Says repairsuniverse:

This guide aimed the LCD and touchscreen digitizer replacement, but other internal parts may be repaired and replaced too. This guide is a step by step format and can be followed for a quick and safe repair.

Repairsuniverse was kind enough to assemble a list of the required tools to do it in the safest possible way. Additionally, there are step by step text instructions along with pics for the more complicated steps. Using the guide, users can fix or replace virtually any part of their phone.

For additional details, the full instructions and more, check out the original thread. As usual, be extremely careful when taking apart your device as a wrong move can cause irreparable damage.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
