I'm betting that it is not the same camera and is just a cheap low megapixel camera, but I'll report back when it arrives from china.
    Yeah, I haven't found a link for anything claiming an OEM camera.

    Yes, please do! It'll be very interesting to hear your experience.

    Figured I'd give a little update. I ordered the part from china, so I'll probably get it in 2 or 3 weeks. The company that sells it is now at xphoneparts.com. $15 with free shipping.

    Has anyone found out if xphoneparts.com and ecrater.com are legitimate websites?? I'm trying to order a touch screen digitizer glass for Motorola Cliq 2 mb611.

    Thanks for the update if there is any!

    Everything I've found points to it being legit. I also payed with paypal, so I can dispute it if I don't get anything. I know they took my money and gave me a tracking number with china post, but I couldn't tell you whether it's a real tracking number or not. I'll post up when I get the part.

    I can now confirm that the company is legit. I just received my part. It only took 1.5 weeks instead of the 30 days they quoted. As for the quality, I'm on the fence. It's slighty different (very slightly!) from the picture on ifixit.com. For all I know it's just a revised part or an older version. No idea. It's also covered with a reddish orange overspray. Not that this matters since the camera has a protective film, but when comparing it to the one from the tear down, there's an obvious difference in cleanliness. I'm planning on doing the swap on Saturday, so I'll let you guys know how it goes and post a couple pictures for comparison between my atrix and my wife's with the new camera.

    Here's the ifixit one for reference.


    And here's the part I received.

    Anyone know of a good place to get a plastic case opener? Or maybe a good substitute for one?

    Local brick and mortar type place? No. Not besides asking a local phone repair shop. I know we have a few around here that advertise on craigslist.

    If you're looking online, these are the guys I would trust for tools: Plastic Opening Tools - iFixit

    But, that's probably not going to help for Saturday. =|

    Amazon! They sell phone tear down tools for $5. With that, you will get all of the drivers and pry tools needed.

    I don't know why I didn't think of that. I usually get things in 2 days with amazon. Maybe I'll do it next week instead. I'd rather not scratch everything up with a screw driver.

    Bump - how did this work out for you seabass? Did you successfully replace the camera? Working ok? How's the quality if you did?

    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!!
