I believe that it's been done, yes. I don't know much about this though... Other members here know more...

I have swapped screens between wifi and 3G K3 units. It works fine. I noticed that the K3 and K4 kindles had the same eink connector, but I did not try swapping screens between different models (yet).

You post lacks context. What do you mean by "it"?

Do you mean that you swapped screens between a K3 and K4? If so, then that is great news!
