Dealextreme just added both white and black (grey) housing sets for the V880, which is physically identical to the blade :lol:

I've just ordered a black one, I'll finally be rid of that orange logo and I can keep the other bits for spare parts :). I remember seeing others wanting replacement back covers for a while and only finding extortionate prices on ebay, this is better :lol:

I agree, this is the reason i haven't order one yet.

Wouldn't be there a sticker on both sides of the front face?

I have changed a screen/digitizer before. You have to carefully push the screen/digitizer out the front from behind.

quite a tense moment but it worked OK.

The glue remains tacky after seperation from the case but since this seal needs to repel water I added a little bit of silcon

brand new Glass and digitzer are sold as one unit, a guy on ebay sells them from hong kong. But the're pricy (IMO)

(although you can ask for different logo on the glass, ZTE, San Francisco, or blank)

I bought a blank one.

For those who ordered the covers, are they good quality or do them seem like 3rd party fakes?

Was it easy to perform the cover switch?

Quality is good, not much difference from original . Separating digitizer from original fascia is very risky, the strenght of being glued to surface could be stronger than digitizer itself, so i broke mine very easily, even trying it with care and soft push from the corners.. However front is good for new digitizer, cause glue is there.

Battery cover have lense, power swith keeps in place, easy to add :)but no soft material protecting camera from dust and camera lense letters shine too.. :D

Quality is almost the same as original ones, these are not so "soft".

Switching these covers is not the easiest thing to do, and it requires patience not to break everything with too much force.. :D Switching the housing also avoids your warranty!

I've ordered one case, one protective back case and one pack of disassembly tools from DX. Damn, things there are so cheap!!

The status of my order is: backorder. Does anyone know how much time can it take?

And i would appreciate a tutorial to :)

No its not.

Then, does anyone know where I could buy/order a replacement housing for the Libra? I read somewhere that ZTE is not planning to sell those to the public...

I knew I should have bought the Blade instead...

If you're in England then typically it'll take anywhere between 14 and 21 days.

I have a sneaky suspicion that the Blade housing will fit the libra perfectly.
