"In fact it can be done!

But! You do need to either replace the LVDS cable as the 2011 is slightly larger than the 2012 version.

Or which is better and cheaper answer is just file the cable connectors fiberglass tang ever so slightly!

I’ve done a few of these and the system I’m typing on right now is a converted 2011"
