Getting Fascinate open/teardown?

    Anyone had any luck getting their Fascinate open? I've posted in the FFC thread as well, and I'm trying to open her up to take a look and see what kind of room I've got to work with inside the phone. It seems like there are clips holding the body together, and I just can't get them to unclip.

    Anyone have any luck?

    Check in the XDA thread where they are discussing the front facing camera hack that was done on the Captivate, I know some of the guys there tore it down to see if it was possible on the Fascinate.

    i am interested in mounting a low profile heatsink to the CPU/GPU, etc.....even if it's only a mm or two thick, even if it means doing a little cutting on the case/cover under the microscope with a razor blade....i have the stuff to fix a lot of things....anything is better than an uncovered suffocated chip encased in plastic, assuming it doesn't already have a heatspreader like a modern CPU....probably just a bare IC

    how rad would that be, to turn your phone over and have a heatsink flush with the back cover of the phone next to the camera.....eh? :)

    I've checked the XDA thread to not much avail. I'm going to go back over and thumb through all of the pages now. I'll report back if I find anything.

    The heatsink is a good idea... let us know if you try it!
