Has any one done this yet? The parts are available here:

The back cover, since the phone will be slightly thicker:

After looking at the DNA's motherboard piece and the ribbon cables, it looks to be a direct swap. I'm assuming the issue will be the drivers. I wonder if anyone is willing to work on a port from the Butterfly J.

I thinking about pulling the trigger on this, but without drivers I may stuck dead in the water, unless this actually catches interest.

Opinions?

What drivers would be needed and just because it would fit doesn't mean it would work. I think the only driver that would be needed would be one for external sd support. Everything else is exactly the same

Since the cover is thicker, wouldn't that cause the camera and flash to not make contact with the lense and housing? Wouldn't this also break contact with all antennas on the back housing due to it no longer being fit to the rear of the phone? Just my curiosities here.
