sorry guys, right now i have exams so im not going to be able to spend lots of time on esato, but after i finish exams i'll try to make a video of how to swap the colors of the keypad soon =]


@7luke.com
thanks!

@leonmagnus
I do not think all of them have a flash menu, and square was one of them.
just a quick reply to ur question:
on the bottom of the s500i, there is a black tab, (refer to first picture)
you just need some fingernails, put your fingernails into the little slit and gently pry it out, dont worry it wont break that easily

there are 3 clips, and after you pull the black tab out, the process is pretty simple, you can just lift off the keypad (its a really thin metal) and replace it with the color of your choice


OH BTW! i have had the silver keypad for quite a while now, and it has not cracked!!! joy!!! (brought form cnn.cn)

have fun modding!

anyone know where i can get the full w580i housing? looked all over and all i can find is the keypad... now i'm thinking i can use this

http://cnn.cn/shop/sonyericss[....]pad-boulevard-black-p-798.html

just replace the centre navigation key of ys500i with the w850i one? and the orange/black keypad... hopefully it will look good! and the dam keys won't crack!


also can you point me towards flash tutorials? i really want to get these on my phone... its going to be flashed/unlocked first like!
