Anybody have a tricked out device? I'm talking hardware modifications? Custom colors or backplates? Let's see what you've done.

Both are covered by a LifeProof case though, so you don't see the backplate any longer.

I have a black 4S with a white OEM backplate, but I'm pretty sure that won't qualify it as tricked-out. :D

we're these hard to apply?
Like Roofmonkey said, it's really easy. It literally takes two minutes. iFixit.com has a tutorial for switching the backplate. Just make sure you get a Pentalobe screwdriver along with it.

I don't think folks do a lot of physical modding. There is such an incredible selection of cases and covers available that self-expression is simply a matter of slapping a new skin on your phone. The SJ memorial back plate is the most radical mod I've seen.

I don't think those SJ commemorative backs are still being sold. The site linked in the review gives an error message that says no products available.
