About: I'm a seasoned, Nintendo-playing pro, who has been bitten by the electronic bug. You know, the one that carries the virus that forces you to love electronics? Not a thing you say?! My entire life is a lie...

Hello everyone!

Today I'll be teaching you how to make your old, dusty iPhone 4/4s, physically, look almost identical to the iPhone 5!

With this trick, you'll be able to dupe your friends into believing you own a 5, and, truly, the only reason one would ever upgrade an iPhone is to impress others. And without further ado, what you came here for...

What You Will Need:

- iPhone 4/4s

- Something similar to this cover: http://preview.tinyurl.com/LinkWay2Long

- A Screwdriver to remove either the star-shaped Phillip screws, or the "t"-shaped Pentalobe screw (Before purchasing, check which screws your phone was made put together with. These minuscule screws are found next to the charger port.)

Now, once you've received your case in the mail, you can begin this short and easy project!

WARNING: By doing what is written in this tutorial, your warranty will go void. If you injure yourself , your property, or your phone by preforming this tutorial, you are at fault. Not me. That is all.

Step 1: Removing the Screws and Outer Shell

With your screwdriver, remove the screws found next to the charger port on your iPhone device. Put these screws in a safe place --- they're easy to lose, and hard to find. Once they're removed, slowly slide the outer shell upwards, and remove it.

Step 2: Applying the New Case

Your iPhone should now look similar to what's depicted above. Now, snap your new iPhone 5 cover to your 4, and carefully slide it downwards. Congratulations! You're done!

Step 3: Vote for Me in the Contests!

****Not actually required , but greatly appreciated****

Thanks, and enjoy your "iPhone 5"! :D

    I'm sorry, but I don't see why anyone would do this.
