    Drop my Atrix this morning.

    My Atrix's glass is shattered now. Gorilla Glass definitely will break regardless of what the advertisements and reviews said.
    I'm looking to replace the glass myself but I wanted to know if anyone has done business with these two part suppliers:

    http://www.oemcellphoneparts.com/pro...ns-Gasket.html


    http://www.globaldirectparts.com/Mot...mot1039622.htm

    Is there any other suppliers that would be better and what tools do I need to have to begin this adventure?

    Can't say that I have but I know BGR has a nice tutorial on how to do it.

    Gorilla Glass is scratch resistant not drop proof.

    Its not scratch resistant either... its pretty useless if you ask me :s
    But for the record its supposed to be more resistant to direct blows where it won't shatter... tho scratches it does get...

    I think you have some facts mixed up friend. Gorilla glass is not blow-resistant at all, at least not from dropping and landing on corners or odd angles, which almost always result in cracking/shattering. The main purpose is to be scratch *proof* and unless you carry your atrix in a bag of nails - it does this job remarkably well. Here are some of the most Common FAQs regarding Gorilla Glass.

    Can you explain the ion-exchange process?

    Ion exchange is a chemical strengthening process where large ions are “stuffed” into the glass surface, creating a state of compression. Gorilla Glass is specially designed to maximize this behavior.

    The glass is placed in a hot bath of molten salt at a temperature of approximately 400C. Smaller sodium ions leave the glass, and larger potassium ions from the salt bath replace them. These larger ions take up more room and are pressed together when the glass cools, producing a layer of compressive stress on the surface of the glass. Gorilla Glass’s special composition enables the potassium ions to diffuse far into the surface, creating high compressive stress deep into the glass. This layer of compression creates a surface that is more resistant to damage from everyday use.

    Can I break Gorilla Glass?

    If subjected to enough abuse, Gorilla Glass can break. However, Gorilla Glass is better able to survive the real-world events that most commonly cause glass to scratch, chip, or break.

    What are the advantages of Corning’s fusion draw process?


    Corning’s proprietary fusion process creates an unparalleled surface quality. This extraordinarily precise, highly automated process produces glass with exceptionally clean, smooth, flat surfaces; outstanding optical clarity; and inherent dimensional stability. With the right process design, the glass can be used “as drawn,” eliminating grinding and polishing processes that add cost and may introduce surface flaws. This same fusion draw process is at the heart of Corning’s industry-leading LCD glass.

    What’s the difference between Gorilla Glass and Corning’s LCD glass substrates?


    They serve different purposes: Gorilla Glass is a cover glass for the exterior of display devices, while EAGLE XG is a glass substrate used within liquid crystal display panels. Therefore, many electronic devices feature both Corning Gorilla Glass and EAGLE XG. While they are formed with the same manufacturing process, the chemical compositions of the glass are also different. EAGLE XG LCD glass is an aluminosilicate composition, while Gorilla Glass is an alkali-aluminosilicate glass.

    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    I'd like to check that out, but have no idea what BGR stands for. (I realize as soon as you tell me, I'm gonna d'OH!)

    It looks like the global direct one has a minimum order of three. Don't know if you saw that or not.

    Here's a thread with a guide you can watch but it looks like he only used some sort of green tool, tweezers, and a razor blade. The video only shows how to take the phone apart though

    Does anyone know if Motorola sells replacement parts or if the parts at these places online are OEM?
