    Does anybody know more info about this Mod you can do to your iPhone4 and 4(s)? It looks pretty cool but is worth it or is even possible? ImageUploadedByiCafe1319577457.563712.jpg ImageUploadedByiCafe1319577473.665250.jpg

    Looks cool, but also like a battery killer.

    The little info I have found about it is that it uses the same light from your screen. So in another words whatever your screen is doing the logo does like on/off, bright, dim etc etc..

    Is this simply a glow in the dark sticker?

    Considering it takes a couple hours to do, that price doesn't seem too bad.

    I'm guessing they have some kind of acid wash to remove the chrome... not sure how they do the light, though. It's definitely not light from the screen, that's for sure. There's all kinds of stuff between the screen and the back plate... chassis, logic board, battery, etc.

    well, "rip-off" implies the price is unjustified. And £100 was the high estimate, 50 being the low estimate. It may not be worth it to you, but that's about what a couple hours is worth to a repair tech.

    Glow looks like its coming from the center. So just add an LED, but first they have to figure out how to get that LED do what the screen does. That is the hard part (other than removing the chrome).

    With all the bumpers.cases and brushed aluminum backings I have, already spent over a hundred bucks. But to have that glow. To me worth the money but if you wait a while after it comes out I'll bet every one will be selling them cheaper.

    Still that is cool to me. I WANT WANT WANT!

    I don't think there's enough room to just stick in an LED. Unless there are super low-profile LEDs I'm not aware of, which is entirely possible.

    Yes there are super thin ones that r as thick as a piece of cardboard almost. They are flat too so that would work perfectly.

    I have a whole bunch of .5 mm and 1 mm led modules. So yes, they make them thin.

    I would love to have the logo glow. Except I would like to pick the color. I changed my MacBook Pro Apple to blue.

    According to the story, you can select the color you want. But imagine if you needed to have the phone replaced?

    I guess but you could probably just put a stock back cover back on and it won't be seen.

    also

    I'm not even sure if a .5mm will fit in there. When I said super-low-profile, I was thinking paper thin.
