    I recently just order parts for a white conversion and I keep reading about people using duct tape, or electrical tape, to prevent light leakage.

    I was wondering if anyone could please expand on where I should place the tape.

    I attached a few photos if it would make things easier.

    Thanks in advance.

    My guess would be to carefully apply the duct tape inside the back plate so that it "nestles" the camera and blocks light...

    I wouldn't recommend it, however, It will void your warranty, and plus duct tape becomes gooey and gummy over time. May not be the best idea.

    Keep in mind that the light leakage only affects fake parts, not genuine Apple parts. Engadget wrote a good article on this a few weeks back. They got a genuine white front and back and the light leakage didn't occur. When they went and bought those "OEM" parts from online, they noticed it wasn't the same quality as the rejected Apple parts. Basically, the OEM parts from online stores are not really genuine.

    There is a guy here in San Antonio that is going to be doing my conversion. I have seen his work and there is no light leakage what-so-ever.
