Introduction: BlackBerry Torch 9810 Reverse Oreo Stormtrooper Screen Hack
My BlackBerry Torch 9810 suffered a cracked screen which I needed to replace. Luckily I had my friend's water-damaged White Torch that stopped booting a year ago, so I gave the screen a shot. Surprisingly, the screen replacement worked although a few buttons didn't. Because of the mix of colors, I ended up with a "Reverse Oreo" appearance that looks like a Star Wars Stormtrooper. With the missing buttons showing gold, I even have a C3PO effect!
Now I can use the phone again with a clear uncracked screen. Even though some buttons don't work, I can still use the on-screen soft-menu if I need those functions. The purpose of the video is mainly to show the steps involved in opening up and closing back a BlackBerry Torch device for the purpose of accessing the various boards and screens, and even the track-pad (which can also be replaced).
