Welcome to the official installation tutorial for version 2 of the illuminated logo kit for iPhone 4S / 4. This guide is universal between all iPhone 4S / 4 including the GSM model.

The new illumination kit for iPhone from LightMyiPhone.com is better than ever! This kit is much easier to install and will make your iPhone stand out in the crowd.

The installation is super simple so long as you stay patient and follow the instructions. The only difference in the GSM model is the number of screws. The connection points remain the same. Feel free to comment below with any questions you may have.

Use this video as a guide through the installation process but also do your homework a bit and familiarize yourself with the inside of your iPhone, the Light Mod kit, and how the two interact together.

    Looks like there is a little bit of a light leak at the camera led hole. Wonder if it causes any problems with the camera.

      Micheal, just installed mine and no camera issues. There must’ve been a glare that looks like light on the flash lens. Also once I got the light pad in place I put a piece of double sided tape on the back to hold in place. Careful though because its hard to get up if you need to realign. So I learned that, put the EMI shield on, align and then put the tape on.

      Yeah I can confirm, no camera issues at all.

      that’s odd I’d give support a shout. They are really cool guys. I think my back is glass.

      May 18, 2012 at 9:42 am

      All panels are glass. We are sorry you cracked your phone. As cautioned on the inspection tag in the package you can’t apply force in the center, i.e. its glass and it will break.

    Everybody has their own experiences but is mine: This product is weak sauce. I was able to get all of the installation done except for the back cover which did not fit because of its poor design. Also, the LED they sent was stained and showed through the diffuser film. Again, I was not able to install the back cover and the company, lightmyiphone would not refund my purchase. Also, the back cover is cheap looking and the piece meant to protect the camera lens fell out repeatedly during the attempted install. Final word: don’t waste your money.

    looks like i’m not alone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzA8oLDLg6g.

      hey there I forwarded you concern to the lightmyiphone guys. Sorry you had some trouble with the kit. I know for a fact it’s not the same story across the board but hate to see you in this position. I sent your email along with the comment. hope it helps

      Hey Yusef, as we told you last night, you ordered a GSM 4 kit for your GSM 4S the panel will not fit and is the root of your issue.

      We have made every attempt to help you!

    Ok so I’m trying to install mine and it won’t turn on, I’ve removed that little film where the connecting points are, I’ve moved the light mod in every position and it still won’t come on


    • Dom

      May 24, 2012 at 9:57 pm

      I know this is silly but did you reconnect your battery? If so, I’d contact their support


  5. Patrick

    May 25, 2012 at 9:10 am

    Ya I did, I tried about everything possible and it still didn’t work…I’m sending it in today but I’m just worried that I’ll send mine in and they’ll test it out and say nothing’s wrong with it and send me the same exact light panel

    Im interested in getting one which of the two versions is best to get?


    • Dom

      May 29, 2012 at 12:15 pm

      I’d go with version 2. I like it much better.

    June 1, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Just installed it and it works great…word of advice though, the 1st time I installed it I couldn’t get it to work. I then put more tape to apply more pressure and then it finally worked so that’s a thing to consider.

    i just got my kit and i am having problems. the light wont turn on if my screen is on but if i move it a littl then the light will turn on but the screen will turn off…i need help , thank you


    • Herzl

      June 2, 2012 at 10:05 am

      and i cant put the back cover on either


  9. Patrick

    June 3, 2012 at 4:26 am

    make sure you position it just right and have everything connected down properly. mine had the same problem but i needed to make sure i had all the connections under the emi shield on nice and snug. and like i said position it to where it wont do that, thats what i did.


    • Herzl

      June 3, 2012 at 6:46 am

      thanks i will try that, but what about the cover?


  10. Patrick

    June 4, 2012 at 12:10 am

    my back plate wouldnt really go on either, i had to position it just right to get it mostly on. i found out that an iphone bumper case helps a lot! it looks good and protects your iphone and keeps the back plate on, you can get them at an apple store or target for around 15 bucks. also look at the clips on the new back plate you have and the old one that was on the phone, they need to match up exactly or it wont go on. thats what i would do

    I live in Australia an would really like one of these iPhone Lightmod Kit V2 but can’t seem to find one on ebay. all i seem to get is the V1. Please could you send me a link from where you got yours from.. Also because i live in Australia how do i know what modal my iPhone 4s is. i.e.:GSM or CDMA

    many thanks

      Well you can get the lightmod kits from lightmyiphone.com that’s the only place those ones are sold. But honestly if you’re not sure which model you have it may not be wise to dissemble your iPhone to install this. On an iPhone 4, CDMA and GSM depend on your carrier but the iPhone 4S is both CDMA and GSM.

    I’m having some SErIOUS issues with this mod. I followed all directions perfectly and couldn’t get the light to stay on. I had to take the second piece of adhesive off, because the two top connectors wouldn’t close. now, my iphone screen is staying black, it shows an apple logo for a half a second and goes black when i try to restart it. What the hell happened????? i cant find advice or these symptoms anywhere!!!


    • Dom

      June 15, 2012 at 6:41 am

      I’m not exactly sure what happened, but that’s definitely not normal. You could have shorted something out, or you could not have the connections down all the way or connected them wrong when reassembling the iPhone. There are so many different things that could have happened. Installing these takes some serious confidence and technical know-how. It’s important you understand the inside of your iPhone and which components you are moving or unplugging before installing. I would make sure everything is securely connected.

    I cant get my back plate on completely? Any tips! How much force should i apply it just wont slide back in completely!!!! Help please!


    • Dom

      June 21, 2012 at 5:22 pm

      If you have to apply a lot of force you’re doing something wrong. It should just slide on if you have everything down and in place correctly 🙂

    I have installed the mod, and everything works, but my light only stays on for a few seconds then fades off. i can turn my screen off and back on and the light comes on but then does the same thing. any ideas.


  16. brad

    August 2, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    also if i keep the screen on and use the phone as normal the light goes on and then back off, intermittently..

    Hey so I installed it but when I try to use my camera I can’t have both the led mod and my camera working at the same time, I bought the 4 version and don’t know why both won’t work, the screen works fine with the light on

    Hey i installed one of these i got it to work however i noticed that whn ever i attach the mod it drains the screen power!! If its on full brightness n i attach it it reduces the screen brightness which also means whn the screen brightness is on minimum it totally blacks it out and you cant see nuthing!! Anyone no why this is happening ?

      I would assume it’s because they’re sharing the same power, kind of like a bottleneck.

    I gotta say its probably a huge risk your taking when choosing to install this mod but the end result is amazing!! I am pretty much a noob at it but some how got it to work with no problems. Took me about two hours to perfect it and get it finished. If you take your time and dont panic you should be able to do it without breaking anything. My screen was blank several times but i figured out if you dont snap the connectors back in right the screen wont work properly. I actually did not use the diffuser though. Not sure if you need to but its brighter without it and on the white iphone it stands out more. The video was really helpful. Hope this review helped.

    If you experience the light mod turns on and your screen turns off, turn the brightness all the way up. You will also need to turn off the auto brightness feature.

      January 5, 2013 at 4:58 am

      I would try and make sure all of your connections are secure. I’m not a complete expert in iPhone electronics, but that sounds like it could be a source of the problem. There shouldn’t be any dimming.


      • Jaime Reyes

        I’ve tried to move it around but as soon as the apple logo lights up the front screen turns off
