Yeah wow, looks pretty shoddy, but considering I don't see repair parts for the special edition anywhere, I don't think we'd have a choice. I guess with a case on it afterwards you probably wouldn't be able to tell anyway. Quick question - have you compared the connectors of the backlight for the Kenzo and Kate? Is there any difference? Wonder if it might be software related?

Has anybody tried replacing both the screen and the backplate? If we're lucky we only have to change both and then have no 2mm gap between display and housing.

Another update... I talked to the people at Cellspare.com and they say that they should have stock again within two months. A long time to wait for parts :/

I have just ordered it, it was available for the gold one at least. Previous to the payment I calculated shipping cost to Finland with my address and it was 0€, it said also the delivery time was 7-10 days. After they´ve received the payment (39,42€), they sent an e-mail with the real delivery time: 11/05. So from 7-10 days to 23 days...

I will have time to check some youtube videos about LCD replacement and decide if I will do it by myself, meanwhile I´m already asking for budget is some shops... I´m not quite slick about assemblings/ replacements.

Do you have a complete video of assembling screen?
A good solution to rescue cell phone!
I have seen many videos, and for me the best one is one from Hon..buy mobile shop (hope you know the youtube channel I mean as I can´t post links yet!)

It´s quite clear and you can perfectly see every single action.
