So you did it. You've had your iPhone 3G for less than a month and you went and busted your iPhone's screen. As though that weren't enough, the people at the Apple Store are refusing to fix it for you for free. Well, not to fear. Brando has released a "replacement LCD Display for your iPhone 3G," complete with touch panel. With this kit and a little DIY ingenuity, you can now replace your screen unit yourself.
Wish you had a dock for that iPhone 3G but not willing to dish out the $29 for a piece of white plastic? Flickr user mdrengl decided he didn't want to either. Instead, he modified his old iPhone dock to work with the 3G. If you don't mind carving into your dock with a knife, then check out the instructions after the break.
As you know, the original iPhone's battery was extremely difficult to replace, but now it appears that Apple may have thrown us a bone on this one. It's still not easily replaceable, but iFixit's teardown revealed that the battery is now no longer soldered in place on the board. This means that while it's not officially user-replaceable yet, the process of replacing the battery will be significantly simpler. This is especially good news for those of you that enjoy DIY hardware-hackery.
One of the more annoying problems with having an iPhone is the buzzing noise that comes out of computer speakers when it gets too close to them. This can be especially problematic given that the most logical place to charge the device for most people is in the same location as the computer so it can be synced quickly, etc. Fortunately someone has found a solution by creating a shield made from some double-sided tape and an empty Red Bull can.
