Dude, I never thought of this. I would love to try this project too. Currently I'm working on gutting an eMac but this is definitely on the list!

I meant to say that I'll offer whatever I can find on this.

Really interested. Just picked up 2 more G5 cases and cannot wait to get into them.

Wish you would respond to my PMs Aloha.

Anyway, so a few posts up I mentioned that I wasn't getting any audio out of my front jack. I did multiple kext things but still came up empty handed. What this told me was that it could not be software based. I followed this thread from tonymac http://www.tonymacx8...hp?f=16&t=26486 and when I installed that kext I was able to see "Headphones" in my system prefs>sound.

I also found a G5 mod on a blog by celso martinho http://arrifana.org/...osh-2/#comments who made his own front panel cable. He experienced audio issues as well and when I noticed his plug, it looked different than Aloha's.

Try and stay with me, I'm describing this in layman's terms. The plug that fits into the motherboard for audio has cables at holes 2,5,9 and 10. Celso's cable has 2,5,9 but a cable running from 7 TO 10.

I ordered some wires/connectors from polulu and was able to make this connection myself. I removed the #10 female cable and replaced it with 2 females ( 7 to 10), installed it and then did the kext modification and BOOM! I now have audio.

I have a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 mobo, if that means anything.

This is the photo that I used for reference. I also did much checking in my gigabyte manual. Hope this helps.
