Hi folks! well, I'm in the same situation as everyone there. Spent some money to upgrade my Late 2008 MBP ( 8Gigs of RAM, Samsung SSD), and one day this huge trench on the hinge. Did the glue trick. Worked 2 months. Did it again. Worked only 2 weeks. So kept it trenched, moving / opening / closing the screen very carefully. Decided also to clean the fans ... and now I've got a nasty dust between the LCD and the glass (I know, my fault, I should have thought twice)!!! So now it's time to replace the display assembly. I have the opportunity to get a "fried NVidia" MBP 2010. Would it be possible to use its display assembly? Found a topic on using a MBP 2009 display assembly, but not the 2010 one. Or maybe I should try something on the MBP2010. Any advice will be welcome. I love my Late 2008 MBP. Still a beast.
