    Hey guys, ive taken my droid apart and put it back together 3 times now, took it apart the first day it came out, but this time i decided to take some pics. Here you guys go you can see what inside the LCD area looks as well.

    Interesting, but the pictures are too low resolution to be of much use.

    What we really need is some nice clear macro shots of the various boards and chips.

    I am curious about what's attached to the top left of the screen opposite the led.

    I have a 5MP shot of it, its just imageshack makes it smaller. Ill try to upload full resolution. As for the left, i think the left side is just like the iphone from what i can tell, thats where the sensors are for light to see if the phone is up to your face or not. But then if thats that, then the right side has it too so im not sure.

    The light sensor is on the right next to the notification LED; I'm trying to figure out what's to the left of the speaker, too hard to tell from those pictures but it could be IrDA.

    ill get you a better pic in a few minutes, as for ralph, lol after you take the screws off, on top left there is some sticky tape u need to take off, then unplug one of the connectors there so you can then stick a flathead on top left corner there is a insert, you lift up from there the lcd comes up :)

    Proximity sensor, used to automatically turn off the screen while in a call -- try holding the phone away from you and moving your finger near that corner.

    nice, whats that proximity sensor do? As for the LCD, yea you can take it off without removing the glass. It comes out fairly easy no tugging needed.

    lol more like you need to remove 10 screws :) theres 5 on each side, your going to have to move the slider around. Once you get all 10 out, you will need to lift up but be careful ribbon is still attached. Then you will need to slide the slider completly off the metal tray which was screwed onto the lcd housing, but you need to make sure while your sliding it off, it will get stuck cuz of the ribbon tugging, you will need to turn the ribbon and pull it through and out the metal frame before you completly slide it out or you will tear it. Then after that eveyrthing else is simple.
