Some photos of my 'black' Tones, after dyeing OEM Tones with RIT dye for about 45 minutes (in not simmering, but scalding hot RIT dye). Basically in a pot, on 'low' on my stove. I compare it to the Slim Armor and a blue Tones. My dyed Tones now is a dark charcoal on the TPU section. It really looks GREAT! If you are interested in details, let me know. Hats off to the OP above who first did this. Also, the process did not remove the black ring either. Buttons are a bit softer, which his good. Although I like the OEM light grey, this dark charcoal is much nicer, and the Tones has a better lip than the Slim Armor...so a perfect and easy fix!!! Plus the Tones is a thinner and less wide case than the SA. Additionally, the Tones does not scratch like the SA (you can see the scratches on the SA in the photo below). My RIT's Tones on the left, black Slim Armor on the right. OEM blue Tones in the middle, untouched. Front and rear shots of the RIT SwitchEasy Tones. Front lip is now dark charcoal since it is TPU and absorbed the black dye.
