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.

This does look pretty bad ***, but I doubt I have the gall to open my phone up.
Lame they're stopping them from selling this.

Pretty cool actually....really hope Apple make the home button/notification light on the next iphone.

Just FYI, Apple does allow your LED to flash when you get notifications on ios 5.
General > accessibility > LED flash for alerts
Nevertheless, that is an awesome mod. I would do it but can't live without my iPhone 4.

Just bought one. Thanks for the heads up!
Always wanted this since iPatch announced they had created them and would sell them for over $150 and only be available in the UK.
So i bit the bullet and bought this before they sold out.
I'm just going to return my shiny blue color conversion to zeetron and go back to back with this LED apple logo.
Thanks again. Very excited.
JUST A HEADS UP!
It takes about a month to receive the product.
Total cost for 1 kit is $56.40 after shipping

Since the APIs for the led has been opened up, I'm sure anyone could make an alarm app that uses the led. But my coding skills is minimal at best.

Nice mod!! Just bought one. I wasn't going to pay full price but since it was 50% off I grabbed one. Didn't have any problems purchasing it and used paypay for the smooth transaction. Shipping from hong kong will take a little time but worth the wait. Since I use the otter box commuter it will look pretty wicked.

I've never tried, but how difficult is opening the back of the phone? With what and how do you do it?
12-17-2011, 08:16 PM #14
I placed an order. Or at least I think I did. I got an email confirmation from paypal showing that I approved a payment. But when I sign in on the K.O. website, it says I've never placed an order. Anyone else having a similar issue?

Question: Does the back plate say "iPhane"?

So how exactly does this void your warranty? If your phone needs service, why not spend a few mins and remove the mod?
