When the HTC One S was first released, it came in a sleek gray and blue color scheme. A black variant also appeared. And while the gray and blue variant is pretty sleek, some users prefer the black version. However, not all wish to buy a new phone just to update their aesthetics. There is now a way to acquire the looks of the other.
XDA Recognized Developer and Contributor Zarboz released a hardware mod tutorial that helps users deconstruct the One S and put it back together. That’s with shiny new black hardware. The process is, as one would expect, pretty complicated, and requires a good number of tools. However, Zarboz is quite helpful with that. Aside from a complete tools list, another list was also provided that details the parts that need to be replaced.
Essentially, it’s a disassemble guide except when you reassemble the One S, you’ll put the black One S parts back on it. For those who enjoy disassembling things, this will be delightful. However, it is a dangerous process that could irreparably damage the One S. Proceed at your own risk.
