Where to contribute this tip?
Hey all. I'm not sure where to contribute this tip. I accidentally stumbled upon a handy way to pry apart a mobile device without chopping up the edges... therapy putty. Specifically, it was Green Theraputty.
I'm a software/hardware developer. I was using it to hold a Nexus5 in place while I conducted some screen tests. When I went to remove it, the putty held on a little too well and uniformly pulled the back cover off of the device without damaging it. Once I got the putty off of the table, it peeled right off of the cover without leaving a residue.
I should also add that the putty had time to cool and harden a bit. The warmer it gets, the more malleable it becomes. It's basically silly putty.
I hope this helps someone!
Is this a good question?
