DROID 2 Torn Apart, We Cover Our Eyes

These teardowns make me cringe every damn time!  The thought of someone purchasing a brand new phone, likely at full price, and then chopping it to pieces should be illegal, slap-worthy or involve something else completely painful.  OK, I’ll admit that it’s still pretty cool and I’m glad someone does it so that we have posts like this!

The Droid 2 is the latest victim and has few surprises under the hood, but really just  provides some entertaining shots of its guts including the one below of the newly enhanced keyboard.

Check out the rest of the teardown over at iFixit.

Cheers Jose!

    the i*hone burning gave me the idea of an Apple holocaust.

    I think we should have an Apple holocaust where we take all the Apple products and ship them off to big industrial ovens where they all get burned and melted down to make the prison cell where our oppressors like steve jobs will be kept and forced to use PCs and Google products.

    HA HA it broke his blender. I had been wondering what would happen ever since i saw the videos of other phones getting blended.

    the video of the bullet hitting it would be awesome for an Android commercial. “Tired of being a mindless slave?”(bullet hitting *phone video) “The time to rise up and be free is now” ( *phone burning video) Then we see an army of Android phones coming over the hill to set the slaves free. :)

    Does it stay “stuck” on the sapphire logo or does it actually revert back into a loop??

  • Chris Nimon

    Nice, but im gonna have to go with The Day After.

    It was painful to watch, but look at how much the Droid can take. And it broke the blender. Pretty impressive.

    So, what are the odds that if you find a broken one on ebay that a person could switch keyboards on their Droid? P.S. why does this remind me of deer hunting season?

    If you are coming from a non froyo rom, you are supposed to delete your cache. I don't know if that would cause the rom to not load tho.

    If you still are having trouble getting that ROM to work, I would recommend trying Jrummy's Lithium Mod Rom.

    We should be able to use different parts. They are practically making these phones mini PC.

    Remember the scene in the Empire Strikes Back when Lando asks Han and Leia, “Are you having problem with your droid?” while Chewbacca was putting C3P0 together? Haha, lets see ifix it put this droid together!
