As tanv28 warns in the video, this is not an easy project and it will void your warranty. Such is the price of convenience.

Tanv28 didn’t mention if his iPhone can’t be charged via a cable anymore, but judging from his thorough guide I’m betting that it the dock connector still works, otherwise he would’ve mentioned it. Now all he needs to do is make his iPhone float.
