    Default The Apple Logo Glow Mod - How it's Done


    So I noticed this Apple logo glow mod on multiple sites over the weekend. Basically some folks over at iPhones.ru replaced the Apple logo in the rear casing of the iPhone to glow while the screen is active. Every site so far that has covered it has been filled with ZOMGZ FAKE!! Hoew waz it donez? OMG. Well it really isn't all that difficult. It also is a lot cheaper to do than the $300 claimed by iPhones.ru.

    If we remember back to April or so this has already been done. Better yet the original case modder Croiman who pulled it off left some instructions and photos of the process.

    To sum it up he first created an Apple logo out of plexiglass to replace the metal one in the stock iphone case. This was done with a dremel tool and lots of polishing.



    To light up the Apple logo some white LEDs from a broken iPhone screen were used although one could probably some comparable LEDs out there that would function just fine for the purpose.



    Lastly soldering Croiman soldered the LEDs to the iPhone screen power function so that the Apple Logo lights up when the iPhone's screen is lit.



    The end result looks very nice and is something any super geek Apple fanboy would probably want. Check out more pictures and a video below. For more detailed instuctions on how this project was complete back in April please refer to the original posting.

    That's definitely one of the most impressive mods for the iPhone that I have seen thus far. Any chance we will be seeing 3rd party vendors selling a prefabricated kit in the future?

    Low power LED's will drain so little power, you will most certainly not notice it.
    It's the whole point of LED's.

    While I prefer the original look myself, I have to give props to all mechanically inclined individuals using their skill to personalize their device.

    This is so retarded. Why do this to your iPhone? And the brightness of that light is like carrying a flash light with you.

    Dumbest sh1t I ever seen.

    PHAIL!

    If that's as bright as a previous poster said, couldn't this be used as a flash? Or somehow modded into a flash?

    My battery lasts 2 days with constant use.

    Here is a tip on how to recondition your battery:
    (lithium ion batteries do not have a memory except the first time it was charged!)

    1. let your phone go uncharged until it shuts down.
    2. Plug in the phone and charge at least 8 hours.
    3. repeat steps 1 & 2 2 more times.
    4. the last time try to charge 12 hours.

    I know this sound stupid but i promise you WILL increase your battery life if you follow these steps.

    hope this helps
