Trackball Transplant on HTC Droid Eris

Trackball Transplant on HTC Droid Eris

Are you jealous of the multicolor LEDs and trackball color mods of the Nexus One? Want a colored trackball for your Droid Eris? Well you can do-it-yourself like XDA forum member Elementix.

Elementix has gone that one step further and performed the hardware mod on his Droid Eris. Elementix has successfully replaced the Eris trackball with a blue BlackBerry replacement.

Step by step directions are detailed, and it looks like one of the easier hardware mods to be done.  Elementix has also provided links from where to source the replacement trackball.

Note that doing this will void any kind of warranty or insurance on the device.

For detailed instructions and more pictures, check out the forum thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
