I have to say I was amazed to see them already there, the other day they weren't and I was directing people to the teardown. Good job on the quick work!

Just be careful, I was kind of understanding that it is a display issue with the glass seperating, but I could be wrong. Why else did they stop using the one display and go to another as reported today on several sites like http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/New-EVO-...

Goog luck, I am returning and getting another one before my 30 days is up at Best Buy.

sorry you must not have understood me. I have 002, and I do not want 003. I want to know what glue is the best to use to glue down the screen on the phone I have. I cant get nor do I want an exchange. I am not scared to open the phone by any means. thanks for your response though. To answer your question htc stopped using the more expensive display to go with the cheaper one. The display has nothing to do with the screen separating from the phone its the faulty glue which for me is an easy fix if I know what kind to use.

Actually, I recently had to replace my evo with a newer one. I much prefer the newer screen. I believe the more "expensive" display you are referring to was the novatek screens, where as the "cheaper" screens are the epsons. In my opinion, while not quite as bright as the nova screens, the epson screens produce a much better color quality. For me, that is preferable in a screen. Others prefer the brighter nova which also seem to have a SLIGHT purply hue to the coloring.

Oh and just an FYI, your hardware info number eg. 002 and 003, does NOT automatically tell you which screen you have. There have been both nova and epson screens since launch with both screens being found on 002 and 003 revisions. Just check the android forums or xda. I won't go into how to tell which you have here, but there are plenty of ways to tell at the other sites.

Use Jet glue slow jell. It isn't super slow but gives you a little time before it sets. That is, 15 seconds or so. As far as removing the old adhesive, a hair dryer should suffice.
