Hey guys, has anyone seen white housing OEM parts floating around the web for purchase? Its extremely easy to pop the titanium housing off, and I, personally would love to have the ability to change the two out whenever I'd like. The titanium housing is easy to find which is a plus, but I'd still like white just for kicks.

Thanks guys.

I've only seen the white OEM battery backdoor but I'd imagine the casing will start to go around soon. The best part about this, after all, is the face-plate of the white phone is left as black.

I've been looking for this too. Hopefully it won't be too long from now. I'm sure they know that some of the users may need the white housing,

We're just looking to swap the housing over, so we will still have the titanium one, just in a fancy new suit ;)

I'm torn between the two colours, and really just want some variation!

Ugh I want a white one too. And with only the white door available for sale on Ebay its like the people are taunting and teasing us about not being able to have it.

I'm from Singapore and we're the first country to get the white galaxy nexus. I still went with the titanium one as imo the white is horrendous looking.

Yeah, it would be different if the glass was white too. But it's not. Oh well. It would be nice to change its clothes every now and then.

You would still get the updates directly from google, noting is changed on it except the housing, all hardware and software are the same.

The seller who sold the item above sells them in multiple colors.

THAT BACKING ONLY SOLD FOR $10.83... Omg.

The things he sells in other colors are normal cases :p

If he's selling the titanium ones though it's a question of time the white housing arrives to eBay.

Just saying :D

    kms108 - Was it REALLY necessary to quote and re-post all of the giant pictures that petsasj originally posted directly above you?

    Wow that looks pretty good, I am almost tempted to give it a shot with the one that I have....almost. :p

    Seeing as you just did yours, I have a question; what tool(s) did you use to pop off the housing from the phone? I was watching this one earlier and the guy was using guitar picks to get it done and he needed a few wedged in there to get it off. All I got is the blue thing (in the pic I posted) that came with the housing that has that thin of a edge to get it wedged in there.

    Yea, sorry I didn't remove the pics from my post. I used that blue tool they sent with the housing. You just have to take your time with it as the tool is a little weak, but it worked. Once you take the screws out it is very easy to get that tool between the housing and the screen. The top right corner was the easiest to come off and you just have to carefully work it around the edge of the phone. I went around the phone about two or three times carefully lifting the housing away from the screen. That is the main reason why it took about 10 mins to replace. Once the housing comes off everything else is simple and snaps back into place. One thing though... I watched the same vid. When he removed the sticker from the pogo pins I noticed that the sticker was there in the original housing and I left it there in the white housing.
    Let me know if you would like me to explain anything in more detail. I will be checking this thread for more questions.

    It's like I have a new phone!
