- No one is selling them yet, but iFixit has pledged to sell them when they are available. https://twitter.com/iFixit/status/153501...
- As far as I know if the backlight is not working, either the screen or the logic board is hosed.
- There are is a lot of suggestions for possible solutions to this, but the most common one is to open it up and put the pieces in a bag of rice for a few days. That will help soak up the moisture. Often though washing machines shake devices up too much and make it a lost cause. So if you can't get it to work after drying it out, sell the broken one on ebay (people buy them even though they are broken) or recycle it properly, then go pick up a new one.
- As long as you mean the cable and power brick, then yes. I've use a first gen iPod charger to charge an iPhone 3GS with no problems. If the charger doesn't work with your phone, the phone will tell you, which is what happens when you plug an iPhone into my iPod car dock.
- As of a few weeks ago you can now buy a Nexus one that works on AT&T straight from Google.
- Hi Victor, As far as I know iFixit does not ship to Zimbabwe. You can try ordering though the iFixit (http://www.ifixit.com/Parts-Store), but if that does not work you can always try eBay.
- I'm not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure that models A1010 and A1104 are the same machine with just different chips. iFixit's device page (http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Device/Power...-1.5_GHz) gives instructions on how to replace most parts, and uses the same info for both devices, which in my mind would imply that they have the same body. Hope that helps.
- On the right hand side of this page, you can see links to 16 step-by-step guides, and 36 parts for sale. This probably won't upgrade every part in your laptop, but it is a start.
- It sounds like there is a bug in the firmware you have on your iPod. I've had something similar happen to me, and to fix it I've just restarted the iPod (turn on hold, count to five, turn off hold, press and hold the center button and the menu button till it reboots). If you reboot both your computer and your iPod and it still doesn't come out of the do not disconnect state, then you should make sure all of your music is backed up off of your iPod onto your computer and use the factory reset button in itunes to reinstall the software to your iPod. I hope that helps.
- There are a few questions on this, but I couldn't quickly find any, so I don't blame you for asking ;). iFixit though, has a guide for fixing this switch. The part you need to replace is the headphone jack assembly.

Ooh pretty. Although I do miss your old hand model ;)
Very cool teardown. The white balance on your photos looks a little off, but that's not a big deal. Good work!
I may have some problems with Apple's software as of late, but %@@&, their hardware is still very sexy.
It's so nice to see such a broad spectrum of color in a teardown.
This is such a long step, but well detailed. Nice job.
As for the board, without de-soldering it there is sadly nothing you can do, as far as I know.
Quote from Solipsism:
There is no battery indicator on this new MacBook
No there isn't. Which is quite sad, that is such an awesome feature normally.
Wow, this is so cool. Seeing this makes me feel really young.
Ha! Very clever guys. Thanks for tearing this apart, I was very curious as to what was inside.
Why don't we sell these?
