    Hey guys, so yep i took apart my Droid 2, preety similar to the Droid 1, however minor stuff here and there. I also noticed the flip assembly now has star screws instead of the cross ones on the Droid 1.

    And here is my Droid Family

    And if you notice in this picture, i circled in red where on the main board seems to me like an additional memory slot? or something. If anything i have a feeling the R2D2 edition will have that slot filled up with something, maybe hardware wise the R2D2 will be different as well who knows. Any ideas though guys?

    True. It could be that, but i dont remember the Droid 1 having that open slot there, for the milestone to incorporate the sim in that area. I guess time will tell lol

    I like the Original Droid with the "Confidential Motorola Restricted Property: Not For Resale" tag on it....Dare I ask where that came from

    hmm thats a possibility, but there might be other factors like the connector might be a little different plus there is some different keys on the keypad like alt lock which probably would need to be programmed in the phone id think, so it would understand it when its being pressed? no idea.

    Hey, watch this tutorial, its better than me telling you since you have a visual. Just be more gentle than how the guy does it in the video, especially how he opens the phone from bottom after he removes the screws, avoid starting from bottom and at the bottom area be very careful, if your not you might break off the chip underneath the speaker area, trust me ive done it and had to re-solder my old droid's back on. Good luck.

    That's cool. Thanks for the picks. You have bigger balls than me because I couldn't open up my new phone the first day I bought it. I've had mine for six months now, and I still don't have enough to open it yet! Lol

    (thought bubble) Hey, maybe I'll do it, and then this will be my excuse with the wife to have to get the new Droid 2.......;)

    Now, the question of the day....Once you put it all back together, does it still work?

    Thanks again for all the detailed pics!
