Well, yes, obviously there is this "brute force" method but I found the great advantage with Mobility Modder being that it "OEMs" the official ATI drivers so that they install normally and you can also install the Catalyst Control Center, etc. It is the closest thing to ATI issuing official drivers.

It's also a lot easier.

How? The GPU in the iMac is a mobility card and as such is crippled to prevent OEMs from messing with it. There is no driver update support for this particular mobility GPU. Mobility Modder removes that limitation, so the driver thinks the iMac GPU is the desktop version. How can you install Catalyst Control and the Driver without first hacking the driver?
