Turn Your iPhone 4 Transparent With A Torx Screwdriver And Some Paint Thinner



As it turns out, turning your iPhone 4 transparent is as easy as grabbing yourself a pentalobe Torx screwdriver, opening up your iPhone 4’s chassis and applying paint thinner to the inside of the Gorilla Glass to strip off the black undercoat.

What a great looking mod! Too bad it’s going to wreak havok with your iPhone’s photographs. As you might remember, the white iPhone 4 was delayed because the white inner coating underneath the Gorilla Glass caused light to leak onto the camera sensor, washing out your snapshots… and that all happened with a layer of paint. Imagine how unusable your iPhone 4’s camera will be if the case is totally transparent.
