There is a mod/tweek zip that really helps the wifi connections out now..

before i went to android i recall a whole slew of webOS mods and tweaks where out that you applied to overclock and fix issues such as wifi connections.. worth looking around for.

It's back. Looks brand new. The backup/restore that the tablet does automatically seems to have restored it 100%. Pretty quick service and excellent result.

Great ! Glad to hear it worked out for you. I've had mine on for a couple of months and it's held up really well. Using the hair dryer on the corners really ensures a good and lasting fit.

I haven't yet installed the screen protector. Any issues in applying that?

That slid on like butter. You spray it wet and your fingers and slide it into position and squeegy away..

I had ZAGGS before for my phone it was way over priced the install solution they sent was leaking and even it it did not leak they dont give much..

the skinomi has free shipping and it was pretty fast about a week, everything came in nice boxes with every thing you need for installation. Prices are pretty good for what you get.

that said i cant say i would ever install a skin on a phone with rounded corners like my htc.. Its all in the details and i could not deal with the way the corners look on my hand held. On the iphone its square and they dont attempt to wrap around corners they only cover the flat front and back parts...For an old phone that looks like crap now sure give it a fresh look. For the touchpad i wanted to cover the scratches on the back and some cracks. It looks great now...
