I own an eMac, and i am interested in a dual monitor setup (there is a community wide garage sale this weekend... i figure i might be able to get a cheep CRT). I was wondering if anyone has tried the firmware hack on an eMac/iBook.

It works on the newer eMac. Before you buy a monitor, make sure the hack will work. Here's the list:

There are TONS of people on this forum that use this patch including myself and it works great!

Do note it voids the warranty. But to take it off if you have a problem zap the PRAM. :)


And it work almost seamlessly on my iMac G5.

my eMac is about two years old... the warranty is long gone

thanks for the replys by the way... i might have to look for a cheep monitor this weekend. i read about the pram too to get rid of it. seems like the "hack" can't really cause that many problems.
