Has anyone tested if this works on the metal simple?

This is to be used with the Maker's Kit (1405). The printer's screws are long enough so you don't need any additional fixation points and since on the metal simple the holes aren't in the same place as the kit it probably won't work.

What modification was necessary for the cable?

They claim it's compatible with the RPi camera but the camera needs a type-B cable with connections on either side of the cable, the one they sell has them on the same side (type-A). I removed the blue part and bent the cable over before inserting it in the camera. I left a review on the product page that explains the problem with images: http://club.dx.com/reviews/278772/593555.
