Now that we’re deep into our new round of development on the latest Ribcage Mod, we thought we’d share our experience so far starting with the Hero4 Silver. We’ve pulled it apart so you can see what’s new. It appears to be very similar to the Hero3+ Black with the same sensor and almost identical shooting features. It does of course have some great new additions, in particular the built in screen that’s brighter and clearer than the Hero3 BacPac. If you’re wondering: Yes you can attach the Hero3 LCD BacPac on top of the built in screen and it does work. It even gives the older screen the swiping menu actions that the new one has. Now lets see what’s inside!
What follows should not be considered instructions. New modification instructions will be available once the new Ribcage Mod Kit for Hero4 is released.
