Illuminate Your iPhone 4’s Apple Logo With This Awesome Mod, But Be Quick!



We’ve seen this magnificent mod for the iPhone 4 before, from a U.K.-based iPhone repair specialist, but the best thing about this one from K.O. Store is that it’s available to purchase right now! The kit allows you to easily replace the rear panel of your iPhone 4 with one that features an illuminating Apple logo.

But you’ll have to be quick — it’s only on sale for two days, and could be pulled sooner if Apple steps in.

The mod takes just five minutes to install, and is incredibly simple to do. You simply have to remove two screws at the base of your device and slide off its rear panel, then remove another five screws inside and hook up the glowing panel to your iPhone’s display connector. It sounds a lot more complicated that it is, but it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted.

To demonstrate just how easy it is, K.O. Store has provided the video below, which shows them installing the mod in under five minutes:


The kit is available to purchase now for $42, and you can choose to have the traditional Apple logo or a Steve Jobs tribute logo. But K.O. Store knows it will attract attention from Apple’s legal team, so you’ve got just two days to purchase it before it’s taken down. It could end even sooner if Apple’s lawyers act quickly.

K.O. Store estimates that it will take two days for the kit to ship and promises that it doesn’t alter the dimensions of your device whatsoever. So, what are you waiting for?
