Turn your iPhone 4/4S into the next-gen iPhone with this $30 back plate mod kit

While we certainly cannot vouch for the quality of this “iPhone 5 conversion mod kit” for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, it appears to be a back-plate mod kit based on leaked next-generation iPhone designs.

The mod kit is currently shipping worldwide within seven days for $30.
