lucky you! mine was not so easy to move from the bottom and on top was stuck completely! sounds good idea that you tried some vodka:))

also saw on youtube people using hair dryer does job for separating digitizers as 50-60 celcius temperature does melt glue.

Bought the white body replacement for my gray SF. Changing it was super easy - only harder part is the digitizer, but when you start from the bottom, the danger of breaking it is fairly minimal. I had to remove some glue from the digitizer afterwards - I think that alcohol (I used some russian vodka I had around at the time) is the best way to go - it removes the glue but didn't hurt the black paint on the glass. Overall I am very happy with my new OLED white SF. And the battery cover has much better fit now!!! Best money spent.

Tried to record what I did it was a crap video so i deleted it however I uploaded a video of me removing the digitizer with a hair dryer. Loving the new case :P but I have 2 problems, I think I did not remove the residue off the digitizer properly and i think that it is getting in the way of the proximity sensor as the purple circles had some residue on it, I didn't think it would effect it but it did so now my proximity sensor is not working which isnt that bad it just means the screen doesnt go off when making a call, My second nag is is that the menu, home and back key isnt fluch with the case its slightly more inwards, this isnt a big problem it just feels weird. I know have a sexy blade
