Opening the back and screen cracks
#1
Hi all,

I've joined the ranks of those with a cracked digitizer/screen from opening and closing the back panel. This was after I installed a tempered glass screen protector, so I wonder if that's maybe part of the cause (possibly not letting the screen flex ever so slightly when snapping the back on?). With my first pinetab I opened and closed the back 4+ times for testing cables and such (bad touchscreen) with zero issues. With this one, I opened it only once to swap in a higher capacity eMMC, when snapping it back together it didn't feel like there was any extra tension/stress but it wound up with a corner crack. Easy enough to move the tray to the other side so losing touch there isn't a big deal, still going to be one of the first in line to buy a replacement screen if/when they're available. 

So I pose a question/poll. Just wondering how many have popped it open and reassembled without issue or have had a screen crack. Furthermore, if the screen cracked was there a screen protector involved? Wondering if this might be a common mode of failure or not.
