Pre Orange Boston som to vyriesil tak, aby som nemusel kupovat kryt na Motorolu. Staci kupit digitizer a potom ho obrusit. Na brusenie som pouzil brusny papier, najskor P160 (spotreba asi 4 kusy), potom P360 (2 kusy) a finis P600 (1 kus). Je to potrebne obrusit tesne po hranu ako je umiestnene cervene a zelene tlacidlo. A hlavne brusit pomaly, jemne, neponahlat sa.

is anyone still alive on here??
i got a problem, i have a moto xt502 and was running phantom evolution rom.. last night i slept only to wake up to know that my phone is not starting. i tried charging the battery, it shows the red led while connected to charger, but nothing on screen.
i tried to switch it on my many modes, recovery, download mode, fast boot, but it is not starting.
i am not sure if its a charging problem, coz it shows only the red light and never the green one, so i guess the battery is not charging.

bt is that possible is that my phone is already dead and i should stop chasing the ghost.
please anyone who can help me.. ANYONE.. it is my only phon so it is emergency..
please respond..
respond on my mail or wherever..
but please do..
