Polish your HTC Titan's back cover to chrome

Polish your HTC Titan's back cover to chromeThe HTC Titan Windows Phone with its gigantic (or should we say titanic) 4.7 inch screen is an exceptionally well-built device, especially its sturdy aluminum unibody design that feels high-quality in the hand. For you modders out there, however, Windows Phone 7 does not offer many customization options – but fret not, as the hardware itself is plenty customizable.

The back cover made of anodized aluminum, which is normally a very dark brown or grey, can be easily polished to make it shiny and look like chrome, as you can see in the photo. It definitely provides a nice contrast with the rest of the device.

So how do you do this, you're asking? Well, you'll need sandpaper with different grit sizes, depending on whether you want a rough or mirror-like finish, and at least two hours of time. Of course, all plastic pieces on the Titan must be covered up to prevent them from getting scratches.

If this sounds interesting to you, visit the thread on xda-developers to see more details and photos. Also of note is that the same can be done with many other HTC devices with aluminum backs – like the HTC Desire HD or HTC Sensation. This thread also contains some more instructions and pictures.

Ah, I remember the 2010 XDA tutorial for the "chromification" of the HTC HD2 - suited the HD2 relly well http://www.xda-developers.com/windows-mobile/how-to-chrome-your-htc-hd2-battery-cover/
