Re: HTC Arrive.. disassembly

Also wanted to mention that if you find that sliding out your phone is too hard or easy, you can adjust that by tightening or loosening the screws in the guts layer (not the small screws). They essentially bind the slide out rack to the phone, so if they are too tight then it will mean it's hard to slide out he keyboard, vise versa if too loose.

Re: HTC Arrive.. disassembly

If you decide to change the sd card, I used a Sandisk 32GBoem card and works great! Haven't had any problems. Glad I splurged for it.

Re: HTC Arrive.. disassembly

So I take it the SD card is extra storage and the actual OS doesn't reside there? That's cool, it just reloads and re-sets it up from ROM?

When I bought my Arrive I asked the Sprint rep about sdcard (Sprint said NO sd card?) I was told it was all internal memory like the Iphone (probably to prevent me from messing w/it since they said they couldn't transfer my contacts due to the custom shark ROM, "sharkies" from my TP2). Followed this post to change sdcard Memory Upgrade Sprint HTC Arrive (HD7 Pro) - xda-developers and some extra help from DR.8820 for the correct sdcard, reset, think I had to press vol and power button for hard reset and evreything has been golden since.

Did you happen to find a way to stop the "auto-tilt" on the screen by removing a spring, screws, etc...???

Re: HTC Arrive.. disassembly

Sweet hell. I saw the OP and wondered for a second if I blacked out and created a new thread or something.

The exact same thing happened to me - I goofed on the protector application, moisture got under the screen, attempted a disassembly. I got you beat though, because I'm the idiot who went in from the wrong side.

I didn't go the route of installing a new screen either - I was hoping to separate some film somewhere and dry out visible moisture spots. I got it separated from the body, but I never got the screen itself disassembled. Anyway, I have permanent drying spots on my brand new HTC Arrive screen, and I think generally it's not as bright as when I first got it. My gf tells me I'm an @$$, but what else is new?

Thanks for taking the pics. I just have a simple text file with the order/location of the screws. Nice work. Misery loves company.

Re: HTC Arrive.. disassembly

Thanks a million OP for creating this with lots of detailed pictures. I used the one of XDA a while ago and it got me by to change my SD with a 32gb I had from my TP2. Not anywhere as good as yours though=D>

I bought an Arrive for my brother and he didn't want to change his 16gb out with his 32gb in his TP2 for some reason. If he changes his mind I'll know where to return to

As far as screen protectors, I always use Zagg full body and I always pay for them to install it. It's worth the $10 or so they charge to install it to me because I'm afraid of &#&!^'n up the phone and spending my time to do it.

Anyways, glad to hear everything is back to normal!

Re: HTC Arrive.. disassembly

Great tutorial, I just used it to switch out the screen. I was planning on taking pics for anyone else who wanted to do the same thing, but I just got too involved in the process and forgot all about taking pictures. However, if anyone needs any help doing the same thing, just ask an i'll answer the best i can.
