OS X 10.4 on a Clamshell iBook

Just to update anyone who reads this that doesn’t know me.






















Yes you can indeed run Tiger on a 366mHz clamshell iBook with no firewire. It’s extremely easy to do too. Leave a comment if you want to know how.













Yeah it’s kinda slow on some stuff but I don’t edit high def video on it or anything. It dose really well for a seven year old machine that I picked up for $100
But for fear of getting flamed by Gizmodo readers I’d love to do a repeat of the “buy me a Mac Book" thing that Leah Culver chick did. I wouldn’t even charge half what she did and I’d still have to find some way to get the laser etching done since I don’t have a laser etcher where I work like she dose. I’d even go for just a “regular” MacBook if need be although a Pro would have more advertising real estate. Now just how to spread the word…

Hey man! So how did you get 10.4 installed? I just picked up a Blueberry IBook that I am putting more memory and a bigger hard drive in.

I'm just thinking in upgrading my ibook clamshell (exactly like yours SE Graphite). So as I got 576 of ram, I think that it must work.

So I let you my email kiwy.theproject@gmail.com

Thanks for your time.
