    My Droid 1 is still hanging on but the power button doesn't work and now the Volume Down rocker stopped working.

    Let's say I found a clean D1 with a broken screen. Would it be very hard to cannibalize those parts? Not hard, but a serious pain? Not hard at all, go for it?

    My technical prowess: I'm fearless with a screwdriver, and I don't really know anything.

    I looked at some videos and it seems AWFULLY complex to get to the switches.

    Is there anyone who has assembled and disassembled OG Droids that can offer up their experience in this area?

    Thanks

    honestly, probably the easiest thing would be to buy another one. They're pretty cheap on craigslist.
