    Default Several NEW Glowing Apple Mods found. Better kits and Cheaper.
    G'day all,
    This is actually my first post as a member of the wonderful MMi. I have done a lot of reading of other posts to get a feel for what is Cool and what is Crap. And I thought I would start off with a discovery I made last night Australian time or during your day in the U.S. By the way I love to MOD.
    While in a daze after a long few days building 7 new custom coloured iPhone 4 handsets. Total ground up builds including custom middle frames and screens, all new parts inside and even new Logic Boards. I'm mentally upside down, but considering I live Down Under I should now feel normal. Lol...
    I originally purchased the K.O.Gadget Apple Glow Mod Kit and was a little peeved with the poor quality of the rear cover, like many others were as well. But also the fiddly nature of installing the wiring to the board. There had to be an easier way, so I and many others thought.
    I have also read of a few members from here who are working on their own Kits. I applaud not only their skills, but their Balls aswell for attempting such a task. It is a bit of trial and error and a lot of skill for you guys. My hat goes off to you guys, you know who you are.
    Before I go on here I will make 1 thing clear. I have editied these images to remove Watermarks. I hate them for starters, they cheapen any image in my opinion, but I also want to take focus away from where can I get one now and put it into the Mod alone this includes the kits overall build quality. And if this is wrong please say so and I will replace these images with the Originals.
    I do not own a website, yet anyway. Or am I on Fakebook or any Social network. So I will not be posting these images anywhere but here.
    Ok lets showcase them now one at a time. I personally like two of these kits for their design and quality plus the ingenuity of the designers. It looks like either the clever Chinese Engineers have been either been reading a lot of Forum chatter or are members themselves of this or other Forums. In all but one I found new rear glass designs, using the actual same product as Apple uses. Some even have coloured rear covers including the Mod, some even use coloured LED's. In Australia we spell COLOR with a U, so please forgive me if it seems odd to you.
    will post text directly from the webpage, I will not name any Companies yet. And include modified images.

    This is new design, there is a new beautiful lighted logo in your back cover.
    You just need to replace the back cover,it is convenience.

    I like the look of this kit but very little available.

    Minimum Order Quantity is 5.

    I really like this kit. They have done a great job, especially the coloured ones.
    Price is below $20 each for a Minimum of 20. Company is Verified as reputable.
    I left a hint of where to look, its bloody obvious.
    More to come later.

    Just an add on. I just got my custom rear glass from unYOUsual.com
    I like it lots. Already working on a better version.

    Check the pupil, and read where or who it was assembled by.
    The finished product has silver text. Though slightly smaller than in appears in this image.
    But a very nice finish, and identical to image posted here.

    I have dealt with the colored ones before. They are poor quality. The glass backs are nice but I have 4 sitting at my office and none of the LED panels work. The other set I am clueless as to how they would work. They seem to have a huge bulge in the back and I just cant see how they wouldn't affect the back plate from sliding in correctly. Thanks for the heads up though. I look forward to seeing where they are all from.

    Just to update. I ordered 3 of the light kit with the big bulge. They shipped yesterday, but the seller told me there were wires involved. I asked her to send a picture and they are just the k.o. Mod with colored backs. I asked about the other pics and she said they had none like that. So it looks like I have 3 more crappy kits heading my way. BUT I guess I have extra backs for anyone who breaks theirs lol.

    @itslivo have you receive the light kit with the big bulge? I just wonder the same as you, can they fit into the phone?
    As what I can understand from the picture, they are using a watch battery to hook up the red wire to the "+" sign and you still need to connect the copper color wire to the metal frame.
    Please update me if I am right and if have picture then it will be great.

    As what I can see from the picture, I can assume that they are using the k.o mod to hook up the red cable to the watch battery "+" sign and you still need to connect the "copper" wire to the metal frame.
    Please let me know if I am wrong, if have picture then it will be great.

    Yeah I received what was supposed to be the bulged version, but was just the K.O. Gadget type. Much better quality backs, but the same thing in terms of install. Big disappointment.

    @itslivo, so does it mean you still need to connect the wire to the capacitor on the logic board? If yes then they make the "bulged" version????

    As far as I know the bulged version is a fake picture/prototype that isn't available. I ordered those and the ones I received connect just like the K.O. Gadget kits. Positive wire to the capacitor, ground to the long vibrating motor screw. they work just fine but the glass pops off of the plastic bezel after a short while which makes it feel awkward. the nice thing is they make cases that you can still see the apple logo with so that would "solve" the issue for some.

    You can find them sporadically around the internet. I have a pink one and a white one for the 4S if you need one of those colors for that phone. If not do a search for iPhone 4 Light Mod.

    I have seen and tested majority of the reception prototypes that are supported by a battery patch. Just a heads up, they only work for GSM models iPhone 4. In other words it will not work with the 4S. To be honest with you, i ordered a set of 10 just to test in batches and only 2 of them worked so to say the least i didn't bother wasting my time. The way they work is when ever your iPhone antenna sends a signal, it will light up for a small period of time, in fact you can take any GSM band phone and call somebody, near the back cover to the phones antenna and you will see that it will glow. The battery that supports this light is extremely thin and i honestly cannot imagine it lasting for more then 3-6 months if even that.

    The large pad displayed here is ironically your LCD backlight from the Retina, it is a very amateur design and essentially is made from scraps of front plates that have cracked liquid displays (you can still salvage the backlight). These LEDs are very powerful and it will reflect on your LCD, you will most likely begin noticing the brightness of your original display to diminish. Imagine running two Retina displays at the same time. Although i must say with LEDs that consume less power and a smaller pad, you got your self a pretty solid concept.

    Chinese manufactures are really interested in selling these cheap alternatives after KO Gadget but all of them will have a downside. If you want my opinion you can DIY your self a light pad with 2 or 3 LEDs and add two line copper connector on a flexible circuit. I might write a small list of necessary things to buy to produce something like this but id only recommend this for people who have used a soldering iron before.

    Is this worth buying? I contacted the seller if it is possible to buy 1x of these and he gave me a price of $5.8 and said the shipping would be expensive and told me it is better to buy them in quantity. Im not sure what to do. I only need one of these for my personal iPhone. Does anyone know anywhere else i could get it from? I would like a baby blue colour
