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.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
