SILVER SPEAKER MOD

WARNING: VERY DANGEROUS

The story of the silver speaker mod: I was getting ready to go out one cold winter day in December, it was 6:30 in the evening. It was just starting to get dark. It was very quiet, aside from the furious wind whipping against the side of my house. Considering surfing with Mr. T was definitely out with these wind conditions, I sat down to reflash my phone to a new kernel. Holding a knife in one hand, as I am known to be quite the multi-tasker (Yeah, i can flash and eat, what now?) and my Captivate in the other, I accidentally knifed my phone. At first, I started to panic and soon began developing a sweat. Looking down; on the verge of a mental breakdown, I was expecting to see a possibly maimed Samsung Captivate, and little to my surprise, I immediately noticed a battle-wound. Hyperventilating, I quickly pondered on how I could handle this situation without diminishing the aesthetic appeal of the phone, and then the silver speaker mod was born.


Requirements:
1. A fingernail

HOW-TO:
Step 1: Scratch at it until it's silver. [Might take awhile, I had to scratch at it pretty vigorously.]


I don't know how nerdy the rest of the XDA community is, but I almost came to my knees in fear when I was performing this operation. I would recommend wearing goggles, gloves,(except for one finger, we need at LEAST one finger nail..) and possibly a bio suit. However, should you find the courage to stand strong and repetitively move your finger up and down, you will be rewarded..with....




Reminder: No steak is worth your phone being hurt over, no eating and flashing.

You must have a badass fingernail because mine isn't turning it silver. Been scratching for 5 minutes and no black has came off

I stabbed it first though, with a bloody steak knife. Some of the black was already removed, I worked on it from there. I had to press kind of hard, honestly I think it took more effort to scratch the paint, than it did to cut the steak. I didn't finish the steak either, to be honest after all of this trauma, I just wasn't hungry.

*Known issues: logo is located under Gorilla Glass. Might take awhile to figure out a fix.

Does this work with only Captivate ROMs, or can I use an I9000 ROM?
