Mark Hoekstra, the dude who brought us the ever so clever iNoPhone, finally got his hands on an actual iPhone, well, with a cracked face...only to mod it, of course.
Maybe it's something in the air, but black finishes seem to be part of the new "Think Different" consensus. But black paint was only one element in Hoekstra's mission to resolve the crack, which ended up being covered up by a piece of Mac-plastic taken from a 1989 Apple Extended Keyboard II, complete with an original rainbow Apple "home" button that functions. For more info you can check out this detailed play-by-play of his iPhone mod.
We're loving that retro table cloth pattern that matches oh-so-harmoniously with the new/old home button. If iPhones existed in the 70's...

Have you even clicked the link?
There's a hole in the plastic underneath the apple-logo. In that hole I put a small metal rod which pushes the home button. There's a youtube-video to show just that.
And if the device doesn't operate, I don't think it's a mod, so much as using parts to make something decorative.
