I modified a dead tower to hold an iPhone running my Dark Tower replacement iOS app. It was quite easy to do. All you need is a phillips screw driver and a 2x2x4 block of wood.

1. Remove the four screws holding the bottom on and remove the bottom.
2. Disconnect the leads coming from the battery box to the circuit board.
3. Disconnect the keyboard ribbon cable from the circuit board.
4. Remove all screws you see (except for the one hold the gear).
5. Now you should be able to pull the top of the tower from the base. You will see a plastic post perfect for leaning an iPhone against!
6. Place the block of wood on top of the battery box.
7. Place the base of the tower on top of the battery box. You will need to position it so that the screw holes line up (it only fits one way) and the block of wood is close to the keyboard. There is a plastic tab inside the base. The block of wood needs to go between that and the keyboard. Essentially you are building a platform for the iPhone.
8. Flip the base over and put the screws back in. The bottom will budge out slightly because of the wood but that's okay.
9. Flip the base back over and now you can place your iPhone on top of the block of wood leaning against the plastic post.

If anyone has any questions about how to do this, let me know. I think once you get into it you'll see how easy it is.
