  • K.O. Gadget Glowing Apple Logo Mod On Sale for Thirty More Hours



    K.O. Gadget’s incredibly cool glowing Apple logo mod for the iPhone 4 and 4S is currently available for $42.90 (originally $79.90) and will only be available for 30 more hours.

    The mod doesn’t increase the thickness of the phone, and only requires a little bit of sticky tape and the cojones to open up your iPhone and void the warranty. Buyers even have the choice of using the traditional Apple logo or the Steve Job’s tribute logo by Jonathan Mak that replaces the Apple Bite with a silhouette of Jobs head. The hit your iPhone’s battery life will take is reportedly minimal too. Not a bad price to pay for a simple and unique mod.

    The light will illuminate independent of the front screen, and turns on whenever the screen turns on as well. Also, the mod isn't only cosmetic as it turns on when a call or text is received, when the alarm rings, and when data is being sent or received by background applications during standby mode. Definitely a nice addition silent alert addition to the iPhone, something Apple refuses to add. How hard is it to add a blinking LED somewhere Apple?

    However, Apple’s lawyers have caught wind of the mod and have circled the wagons with a cease and desist order that will start in thirty hours at the time of this article. My recommendation, if this interests you at all, purchase immediately. Worst case scenario, you resell the mod for a lot more than you paid for it after the cease and desist order makes them a rare commodity.

      it did in mine so I just moved to screw that was grounded to the outside frame and everything works fine.they don't tell you that part I guess most of the other screws are connected to the logic board causing issues with the phone. Good luck and enjoy.

      I've managed to sheer off the phillips head screw on the tiny screw next to the camera on the emi shield. so when i try and unscrew it it just turns and i can't get it off... i really wanted to install this mod and i now can't get past the second step of installation! if anyone has any ideas on a fix for this it would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

      u should be able to remove the rest of the screws and just pull the shield off. use a magnet to get the broken screw head off.

      DONE! Thanks for the tip! It was a bit of a botch job... I used a splurger and prized the screw free! Thank god nothing broke! It's installed and I love it! Hope I never need to take it back to apple cos the inside of this thing is now a MESS! It was a struggle getting it all together, but 45 mins wrestling with it got it working well! I have noticed as I'm typing this that my wifi isn't working... That's probably because of where I atatched the brown wire to the top left of the frame. Hopefully easily fixed!

      And... I know it's been said but this back is really thin... And cheep, it's plastic not glass! On install I was super carefully not to snap it but because it bows over where the led is installed the top of the "glass" has popped out of the white bezzle. I've used a bumper for a quick cheep fix which is working well for the moment... Tomorrow I'll be out with the super glue to fix the issue! Overall I'm happy even tho it was a massive botch operation!
