    G5 Front Panel to ATX I/O Cables

    BlackCH, I have a cable for my G5 hack very similar to yours, but have upgraded to a new mb that doesnt have firewire. I think this means my power cable will no longer work. Could you explain how the ground jumper cable works that you mention in you original post? Is it easy to make one myself or could i buy one on its own from you please? Thanks John

    anyone know whether it's possible to jailbreak iPad 2?

    There is not one yet. You can keep an eye on this website for when it is released... http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

    mkv to m4v/mp4

    I have found mkvtools awesome for this... for a 720p mkv that has 5.1 ac3 audio, it can quickly remux it into an m4v, passing thru both the H264 vid and the ac3 audio, (and optionally adding an additional 2 channel AAC audio track for viewing on iphone/ipad). Would definitely recommend..
  4. Make sure you unplug your OSX hard drive while you install Windows, just to be safe. then plug it back in after windows is all sorted.

    G5 to ATX Front I/O Cables

    Paypal sent! Thanks
  6. Yep, Webcam and mic worked natively for me on my hack in 10.6.3, using a Dell SX2210. Tested it in Skype and Photo Booth Hope that helps.
  7. I have this gfx card, so thought you might want to also bare in mind that using it with an HDMI converter may not work in SL 10.6.2 or 10.6.3 at the moment. It is still unclear if/when there will be a fix for this. DVI and VGA are fine tho from my experiences.
  8. Hi there, I had the blank screen when using HDMI issue with my 9800GT in 10.6.2 and 10.6.3. I found two relatively cheap cards that i have tested and work fully for me in the mean time until this is fixed. Both can be installed simply by using graphics enabler in charmelion under 10.6.3. Asus EN9400GT silent 512MB and Sparkle GeForce GT 220 1024MB Both have three ports, one of each a VGA, DVI and HDMI. (Although I havnt tested this, im assume you can only use two at any given time.) I tested both with dual monitors in the DVI and HDMI ports. Hope that helps
  9. I don't know for certain if this will help, but you could try changing the network type of the VM. Experiment with all the three options (NAT, Bridged....). One of them worked for me. Can't remember which.

    I have an 8Gig 2G iPhone that has been customised by ColorWare in the US and is totally white. It has been used for about a year. I might be willing to trade for the 3G but what is your offer? Are you asking for a 2G and 290 quid in exchange for the 3G? PM me if you would like to discus a deal. Thanks
  11. I am trying to get all the files i need to use this method on my pc, but i am having trouble downloading the Software Package for this tutorial, the 19MB zip file (From section III part 4.), from the rapidshare website. It keeps coming up with an error saying either my IP address is already in use, which as far as i know it isnt, or that my session has expired and to try again. I have tried a number of times on seperate occassions and cant get it to work. Does anyone know how i can get rapidshare to work? if not is there anywhere else i could get hold of this package? Thanks very much
  12. I was just wondering what people would say is the easiest HD graphics card to intall in Kalyway 10.5.3/4? I know there are probably quite a few but if I am just looking for a good value card that can play hd quality media in both vista32 and osx and doesnt require too much hacking to install, what should i be lokoing for? I dont do much, if any, gaming and i only have PCI express slots available. Thanks
