Latest on upgrading clamshell LCD to XGA
Maybe the party is ending just as I got here, but I bought a 466 MHz Graphite iBook for my daughter to use as a first computer. I've been trying to get it as close to functioning as a usable computer as I can. I have located the correct LG cable and compatible XGA screen so now I am at the stage of wondering what to type in to allow the iBook to use 1024 x 768 res.
I see that in a more recent post this appears to be possible without going into open firmware to do it.
As my daughter is only 7, it seems a pity that she wouldn't be able to watch DVDs on the iBook after making the modification as I'm sure she would want to. Has any progress been made to make this possible using boot-command?
Re. "I'm sure there's a way to turn this into a clickable apple script so you can just double-click on an icon to change what's entered into the boot-command variable, including automatic rebooting."
Has anyone found "the way"?
I'm not particularly tech. savvy, so if one of you more gifted people out there could post the latest step-by-step instructions for me to follow, I would be very grateful.
Long live the clamshell and the Apple ethos of old, when there was more to it than just being expensive and pretty!
