OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, after less than 6 months my OpenPandora LCD cable broke so I ordered two new cables and while doing the replacement I used the opportunity to modify the case to lock the LCD at an angle similar to how the DS and 3DS does (a common complaint about the OpenPandora).

I can now watch movies with my OpenPandora sitting on a desk.

NOTE: this modification uses the stock hinge.

 

WARNING: EXPERIENCED HARDWARE MODDERS ONLY.

IF YOU ATTEMPT THIS AND MESS UP YOUR  OPEN PANDORA, TOO BAD.

The hinge socket before, and the notches you need to grind (circled in red) with a rotary tool to fit the hinge mechanism at an angle:

 

After grinding:
