    Any Success Removing the Matte Film from Apple Cinema HD Displays?

    I have an A1082 23" Apple Cinema HD Display. It is my understanding that there are no such thing as 'matte screens', just glossy screens that either have or have not had a matte film adhered onto them. There are numerous success stories of people using listerine (and similar) to break down the...

    iMac removable screen - 2012-2020 hardware mod

    I miss the iMacs of 2009-2011. Despite their high GPU failure rates they were easy to get in to and upgrade. Specifically upgrading hard drives with SSDs. It is not an impossible task with 2012-2020 iMacs, but its sort of a one-and-done thing. You can really only remove and replace the adhesive...

    iMac G4 20'' back to life!

    Hi everyone! I'm from Switzerland and I'm 27 years old. My main workstation is a good working MacBook Pro late 2013 with 2 30'' Cinema Displays. Back in the days I used to collect old iPods so now my collection is over 30 iPods from several generations (iPod classic, mini, nano, shuffle). My...

    Any definitive method to vrm modding the old 16" i9? bad results for old timers?

    Bought a 2.3ghz i9 2019 mbp for legacy purposes like old x86 plugins for logic that will probably never be updated, maybe it was a dumb idea, but it's done. Anyway, since this forum seems to be the birthplace of that mod, I've read many 2019-2020ish ideas about the mod, where to place, how...

    iPod iPod 1st gen flash mod

    Flash Modding a 1st gen iPod Limitations: At first I have to admit that there is one limitation: syncing the flashed iPod with iTunes/Finder is not possible because of the missing USB support of the controller chip. FireWire doesn’t support the connection to flash storage. Solution: To get...

    MP 7,1 Zotac Trinity RTX 3090 Mod

    TL;DR: Remove the main outer plastic shell of the Zotac Trinity RTX 3090 and it will fit in the 2019 Mac Pro 7,1 My Mac Pro recently came in and sure enough, it seems like almost every RTX 3090 out there is too big. I'm really more of a data science type, so I got 2x Zotac Trinity RTX 3090's...

    macSO Music application "Filter Field" feature

    I was so happy to discover the Command-F "Show Filter Field" option works in the same way the old Find/Search box did in iTunes. This is the main way I look for music in my library, and it really annoyed me how the behaviour of the main Find/Search box has been changed in Music. Has anyone come...

    Hot Macbook Pro : this is not a drill

    Hi, I run a MacBook Pro (15-inch Unibody, Mid 2012, 2.6GHz Core i7, 16GB, SSD, GT 650M 1GB) on an external 1080p display. The computer runs quite hot while doing light tasks like watching 1080p 60fps youtube video. I like it silent and the fans' noise bother me. I have always taken great care...

    MP51.0084.B00 Rom Dump Request

    Heya! I saw gilles_polysoft made a miracle and gave our dusty machines to native NVMe abilities. I look at his twitter and he can edit Apple Efi with UEFITool. I am familiar with this kind of editing. I just ask myself to why didn't Apple release efi/bootrom files to public for corruption or...

    Mac G5 as home server 2018

    Hey all, I've found various ancient threads on this topic, but I'm wondering if anyone has a more updated take on this. I have an old Mac G5 lying around , that only sorta works. It will boot up properly like 30% of the time. It's the 2003 model (the processor is not as accessible as later...

    Dual Nvidia GPU Mac Pro Mod

    With no other viable options at the time, I made the following upgrades to a 2010 Mac Pro (5,1) about two years ago - primarily for rendering with VRay. VRay uses CUDA, so the AMD GPUs of the trashcan Mac were of little use and adding Thunderbolt chassis for external GPUs would have just added...

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S Case Modded to Fit iPad Pro 10.5

    I've been a long time user of a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. I just purchased an IPP 10.5 and couldn't find a case I liked. The standard book cover case for the Tab S 10.5 is a great design with two buttons that snap into the back of the tablet. The case has three viewing positions and is stable...

    Hello, I used to have 2010 white macbook unibody long ago and sold it a few years before. However it was so fun to use it. While surfing on the internet I just saw a guy modding old ibook g3 clamshells, putting an i5 (probably an intel NUC or macbook air logic board). You can find his website...

    Microphone Recommendations for Siri? Apple Plaintalk Mic perhaps?

    I have a 2010 cMP and I just installed sierra. I'd like to try Siri out, but I need a microphone to do it. I am not sure how good of a mic I need. Part of me would like to use the old PlainTalk mic that apple used to ship with their computers decades ago, but that would take some...

    G5 Late 2005 LED lighting power problem

    Hi, I'd love to mod my PM G5 by adding LED strips inside, but I've ran into a problem I don't know how to solve. As I have upgraded the GPU, the 6 pin pci-e power socket on the motherboard is already occupied, along with the two of four pci-e expansion lanes. I have both HDD bays occupied as...
