    my main concerns about converting a black iphone 4 to a white one, with a DIY kit are: how legit did it look, overall? how much is total cost?

    any information on this would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

    is converting your black iPhone 4 to white worth losing your warranty over?

    It looks nearly legit but I'm pretty certain that it would void the warranty.

    I've seen a few people post pictures of the ones they did here. I don't think it's worth it, but if you really want a white iPhone 4 it's the only way.

    I did the DIY swap and even though I had some challenges (that were easily fixes) Id say it was totally worth it.

    It looks great and by doing it yourself you have the parts and tools to swap it back if there is a warranty issue.

    ive seen some good swaps...but as others have said, not worth voiding the warranty.
