    iMac G4 17" Mod - The RochaMOD

    And here´s another video that shows clearly the difference between brightness of Laptop computer screen and iMac screen. UPDATE: Problem solved. By mistake I employed 10 Kohm resistors (both in red inverter wire pin14 to pin 16 and green inverter wire). That was the reason why hooking the...

    Updates on the Rochamod. I continued working on the wiring of the LCD. Some pictures with the advance: Detail of the Vedid wire and red inverter wire with the 1Kohm resistor. I have to say that I was afaid about getting extra wires and its "tinny" connectors. What I don't understand is...

    [Guide] El Capitan on the Intel Broadwell NUC

    I'm trying to install El Capitan in a NUC5i3RYK. However, the only MAC I've got access to is an old iMac G4 with 10.4.11. Then I've got a couple of windows based laptops. Isn't there a way I could possibly run Unibeast with my current tools? I already managed to get a version of ElCapitan (in a...

    iMac G4 17" Mod - The RochaMOD

    Hello! After a couple of weeks fighting to survive an old friend's iMac G4 15", I discovered this forum and the the mods you guys have been doing years ago. So I started searching for 17" units (locating a single unit of the 20" has been an impossible task, not sure if it was sold here in...

    Ersterhernd's NUCiMac G4

    Thanks for the tip ersterhernd. I'm almost ready to start working on my 17" imac mod. However, I've got a couple of questions, I hope you still read this message: + Why you all speak about having a second imac G4 unit to employ its neck wires? Couldn't it be used normal wires? Moreover...

    Antonis' NUC iMac G4 Second build

    Thank you so much Antoni. There is no much support with this mod anymore, so it seems you're the only one I can ask for help! I'll be waiting you to get on with your mod. Spcially regarding the HDMI breakout plug - as I told you, I thought the only solution was using the DVI Molex adaptor...

    Antonis' NUC iMac G4 Second build

    Thanks for the advice Antoni! And then I guess you cut the original connector at the cable coming from the filter and weld it to this female euro plug, right? Let's hope we find enough space for this new element in the imac interiors... On the other hand, I saw in this post that you used an...

    Antonis' NUC iMac G4 Second build

    Some updates: - I finally managed to get the Intel NUC 5i3RYK for 140€ as it is a refurbished unit by amazon. - I have also bought a PicoPSU from Aliexpress. It has been difficult to find a "wide Voltage input" model considering that all the units sold in Amazon or eBay seem to work only at 12V...

    Hello. I'm planning to make a mod using my old iMac G4 employing the Intel NUC 6I3SYK. Can you please verify that graphics in this NUC are supported as well? (Intel HD Graphics 520). I ask this 'cause everytime I read the list of boards supported are refered to i5 models. Thanks!

    Intel Nuc 2.0 (Broadwell)

    Guys, I'm also trying to start my imac g4 mod project but I still don't know which NUC to choose. D54250WYKH seems to be discontinued (at least in Spain). Then, the model I choose for specs/price relationship and low profile, does not seem to be confirmed about working with Hackintosh (Intel...
