Came with 1 pry tool and 2 screw drivers (only need one), $22.70 shipped to US, almost 2 weeks from China but it was the holidays.

EDIT: no sharp edges at all. The battery cover does feel a little slicker than the gray one, but not slippery.
Volume and power buttons?

As rptw above said, yes. I compared the white from forceviewer_uk and the gray OEM side-by-side. They are identical down to the tiniest details. There are a lot of notches, grooves and what-not on the hidden side and everything is there on the white one. Even the Google logo on the batt. door is raised and detailed. The level of details point to it being an OEM as it's not worth cloning and then produce only white color. A clone would have come in many different colors by now.

The only difference is the color and texture.

If anyone is concerned about the slicker texture, put some eGrips stickers on the back. They sell clear ones.

can someone post an original white and a "modified" one aside?

maybe don't tell which of them is the original at first, like it's a game. Then after X posts, give the right answer lol

Ugh, I nicked my original white Gnex the other day. Kind of annoyed by it, ocd for the win. Looking to get a new white housing, but Forceviewe_uk doesn't seem to sell them anymore. What to do...

Hello guys,

Does anyone have any more working links? I can't find one on eBay, and I really want to buy this. My friend gave me his GN, but the titanium cover is kinda broke... like, full of marks and stuffs, so I wanted to switch to the white housing.

So, does anyone have working links? Need something that can ship to Brazil

Thanks!

Thanks! I'm trying to find something here at Brazil or Paraguay, because while the items are cheap and the shipping is free, I have to pay a LOT of taxes to actually have the item in my hands.

I got a $ 20.00 item from eBay sometime ago and paid about $ 50.00 on taxes. Silly me, thinking I was getting a great deal...
