Hey I plan on color converting my iPhone 4s, both front and back. I don't have any experience in this kind of hardware modding. I've never opened up my phone before nor do I know how everything works inside. I'm careful and have common sense, and I have taken electronics apart before, but do you guys think I would be able to convert both the front and back of my iPhone with messing anything up? If so, are there any tutorials specifically for the iPhone 4s? Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate it.
I also plan on purchasing the conversions from a site I found in another thread that everyone recommends. The front screen is specifically for the 4s, as well as the back cover, though I'm not sure if the back cover is the same as the iPhone 4 back cover.

No they are different.
As for your abilities to perform the procedure. Well it isn't hard but its not easy just go slow and take your time. i believe ifixit has a good youtube vid on how to do the take apart. i find the put back to be the harder part so just take your time go slow and pm me if you run into a problem or complications.

Alright thanks guys. I'll let you know how it goes. One last thing -I wanna change the middle plate to black as well, and I checked some sites out. FS sells its for $70 (on sale from $80), but this website has em at $44 plus shipping: Black Metal Middle Plate Housing Cover with Small Parts for iPhone 4S - iPhone 4S Parts - Trait Tech - Wholesale Electronics - China Wholesale - Dropship From China

@Cowboy - my buddy told me they are actually the same screens.. just different placement with the anchor points. I havn't looked close enough.. but to me it's not worth it at all.. I'd rather use the 100% correct screen. I guess he ran out of screens and used one. I dunno, maybe he's full of crap loliRepair Indy
