LCD Upgrade
#11
I don't think it is that particular about the model number either. Last night I took a random 14in 30pin LCD I had bought for a Pi-Top CEED and plugged in and it fired up just fine. Just need to make sure teh 30pin connector is in a similar location since the cable doesn't leave a lot of room for adjustment.

Well, I ordered the exact model you referred to. I did that, because I hate hardware inconsistencies. My Pinebooks run different screens, so I have to have two different Kernels. If I have them both on 1080p, I can keep them in sync.
I have slight OCD - I know. All of my ESXi hosts run on the same CPU, Motherboard, RAM, Controllers (AMD on Gigabyte), all my Desktops run on the same i7 config ... makes life easier.

... and I ran into severe problems.
It seems, the two half shells that contain the display are glued together at the bottom. Don't know why they are clipped together on the other three edges, but the bottom/hinge edge seems to be glued.
WTF?
How can I now change the LCD panel?

There is a bottom piece between the hinges that sticks out and can be popped off. Under that you will find all the screws that make you think it’s glued together.

PM Nierika he had one with a broken screen I was going to take but it sounds like you need it more.
