I take my iPoding seriously lol. I got a new drill attached buffing wheel kit yesterday, and went to town. I wouldn't say they look like new, but maybe like within the first week to month of being new. I also did an iBook G3 and white MacBook. They're not perfect, but in happy with the results.

Rick replied to James's discussion Episode 430: Hey Puter!
"Awesome. If you get any odd boot up or access issues, let me know. I'll send you an image of some jumpers I had to bridge. I only had to do this on a KingSpec SSD, not the mSATA, but it was on my G4. I don't think you'll need it…"

"For emulating older OS X on computers today, you can use PearPPC for Windows. I've run Jaguar and maybe Tiger on it (on a Windows VM on a Mac no less). There's also Mac-on-Mac, which is a port of Mac-on-Linux. Both of these haven't…"

"This is definitely legit, I'm the guy who preformed the modification :) (I'm not the guy selling it though) The way this modification works is pretty simple, you remove the PPC750 from the iBook and solder a PPC7410 in. As the two are pin…"
