How did you do that..? How did the 5s flash fit into the 5c housing..?!

Believe it or not the housings for both these devices are laid out the exact same when it comes to screw positions. Then you swap out the headphone/lightning port cable as well, and the camera sensor, and the get a custom plastic frame for the display assembly to put on a 5S screen and it should work! The frame for these devices is exactly the same when it comes to screw lay out too... It's weird how some of these parts were designed the same. Even the battery is backwards compatible. I want to do it myself and have a 5CS... LMFAO It'll be an iPhone 5C in the S housing...

So can I just buy a 5s housing and put my 5c into the 5s housing

You can, but you will also need to buy the plastic frame that surrounds the display and helps it clip into place. I'm not so sure how the flash module would work since the 5S uses Ture-tone, and the 5C has a regular flash. But be sure to swap out the lightning/headphone port as well since that's what connects Touch ID to the 5S and it has the home button prongs on the 5C

nope, but while i am on, if you want your iPhone to look like an iPhone SE model then just buy the iPhone 6 mini housing from ebay for whatever variant you have 5C/5S/5. i changed an iPhone 5 to the pink colour SE and it looked very well
