  • 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.

      haha looks like it but i think it's just the way the camera took the picture. the white one looks like iPhane and the black one looks like iPhone.

      I ended up getting one of each to see which I like better and then i'll sell the other on ebay.

      is this a serious question? The company doesn't know what color you're iPhone is. Whatever color you order, you will get.

      has anyone been able to get through to their email support? This is going to be a sketchy problem if there is no email support for a website that sells, now only one product.

      Does anyone have one of these or something similar (actually in hand)?
      The video they show of the assembly made me wonder about the true quality of these.
      I really want to see one, the concept is Awesome, I just worry about it looking cheap, hopefully not.
      Please post as soon as someone gets something or if anyone already does.

      Mine is on the way should be here in less than a week.friend of mine hot his pretty easy to install. Seems apple left areas on the board to install these kits. Wonder if the real IPhone 5 will already have it. Dang thing is pretty bright and hardly and battery drain.

      If you really wish to order it . Google KO gadgets . Com takes you right to there store.it has gotten popular so now the price is 79.90.instead of the 42.50. But it comes with new backing plate same as your old one I light kit one Philips screw driver and another odd tool .all these together and 5 minutes latter your done .

      It comes with full instructions on how to install it.

      Did you get a shipping notice that it shipped, or did it just arrive? Waiting for mine, but have not received a notice yet.

      Nevermind. Checked their facebook page and they have links to all the dates they sent out the orders. It takes some time to check every date and find your order number, but looks like mine will be here today or tomorrow.
