    It was really simple. I just popped off the back, put the stickers on and was done. The flash works, wireless charging works I just haven't checked out if the nfc works because I can't find where I put the blackberry z10 which is the only other thing I have in my house with nfc. But it looks amazing and it all just snapped right into place.

    Well NFC works too so my phone is green now super simple to do almost as easy as switching an iPhone 4/4s back

    Looks great, and I like the lack of branding.

    Are your pictures true to the color. It looks way brighter in other pictures.

    Given the reddish tint on the white body and work surface, I wouldn't use these pictures to judge the exact color.

    FYI. Just ordered all the parts directly from the sellers website (see the link on post #60 under LED). The reason I went this route is because Ebay was charging individual shipping charges for each item, while the website charged me one flat fee. Ended up paying $60 instead of $85.

    Yeah I was thinking that would be the best way too. But i had already picked up most things from eBay before realizing the site had everything

    Why can we not just buy the green back and use the stickers from the white? Do they break that easily?

    I'm sure you could I just didn't want to mess with it. Because in a few months I'm going to trade it in for whatever new flagship phone comes to Verizon. I'm on the edge program and i didn't want to mess up the phone and wanted an easy switch when the time comes to trade it in. The NFC antenna and wireless charging coil feel just like stickers and I'm sure with some heat you could pry them up but I just didn't want to risk messing them up. I'll probably sell the green back once I'm done with it. And yeah I'll give the people here first shot at it rather than going eBay.

    I have changed the housing on my 920 several times and the wireless card is just stuck down. Likewise the other components you need to swap over to the new housing - the headphone port and the usb assembly. Applying heat with a hairdryer softens the adhesive and the parts peel off the old housing very easily. I'm sure it would be the same with the 930 back.

    Yeah I think i will stick to my white back (sounds racist?) and if i get brave enough just buy the green back. Nokia says to throw them away in the tear down as they are no longer usable, but who knows if that is not just their way of not wanting to be held accountable if they don't work. Anyway, 16k views that article did you wonders! hahaha
