Used my insurance and now have a good old fashioned unrooted D710. I may keep it unrooted for now until i need it.
As for the old one, does anyone need some parts? i'll be posting some up on e-bay soon if you need it sooner than later i can put a rush on it.
everything seems to be in good condition except for the motherboard which coincidentally now has a bad ESN from what i have assumed.
it was always kept in a case and the only physical blemishes seem to be a small chip in the front glass on the left side, slightly noticeable and not a crack just a scuf, as well as an average amount of very fine scratches on the surface that are only noticable if you are looking for them with reflected light.
the frame has considerable wear on the charging port hole from repeated usage.
LCD works flawlessly
