    @bibilit I've seen on another thread that you've been able to boot your iBook from a USB key to reinstall OS X. Been trying that with Panther and Tiger but mine can't detect the USB key either in the startup manager or Open Firmware. Can you PM me about what you did to succeed ? Thanks

    Thanks for the advice, Well I’m currently trying to repair the yoyo plug. I’ve cut the cord where it seemed a little bit burnt and guess what, the adapter doesn’t make a clicking sound anymore so I guess there was a short circuit. After inspection some of the wires inside the plastic cable were burnt I’ll have to find a 2.5mm jack to solder the wires to.

    I will check this out as soon as I get home, thanks I can see that you own a white iBook G3, does your yoyo adapter make a click noise when plugged to the wall outlet?

    iBook G3 2001

    Hi, Just scored a 2001 iBook G3 for 40 € in great condition It is a Dual USB (M6497) with a DVD drive and 640 MB of RAM, battery is completely dead after 17 years as you could have guessed However, everything was working fine until yesterday.. I wanted to upgrade the iBook to Panther, plugged it and turned it on. After a little while I noticed that little sparks were appearing inside the power cord that goes to the iBook near the plug (it has a yoyo power adapter). After a while the iBook suddenly stopped and now I just can't turn it on anymore. My guess is that the adapter might be broken because if I bring it near my ear I can hear a little click-click sound, even when not plugged to the iBook (short circuit ?) Is this a normal behaviour ? I hope that it has not fried the motherboard or anything like that. Do you have any advice for a cheap adapter replacement ? Thanks! Edit: Another weird thing, of all the pictures I see on the Internet I can clearly see that the plug that goes into the iBook has a pin that goes a little bit out of the shield. Mine doesn't and it has never been the case since I bought it Maybe the little tip just broke into the iBook port, got to check this out later

    Apple IIc blinking power light

    Okay guys, sorry for the late response. I’ve been very busy for the last few months but finally got a my hands on a multimeter Well everything seems to be okay concerning the 15V power pins. I guess there must be something wrong with the internal power converter Interestingly enough it sometimes seems to be starting up, floppy drive led is solid red and I can hear the speaker cracking a little bit but nothing more.. Maybe dead condos ? Cheers

    Apple IIc blinking power light

    This is the one that I bought http://www.ebay.com/itm/221294478704 Maybe I'm not using the right cable for the other hand, I'll buy a new one and try again
  10. Hey guys, Had an Apple IIc for almost 3 years but it did not came with a power brick. So I decided to buy a Toshiba charger transformed into a IIc power brick off eBay, the problem is when I'm turning on the computer the green power light is blinking and I'm not getting any startup beep. The disk drive is not running as well. Any ideas ? Best regards

    Hehe, It's actually iOS 6.1.6 with an iOS 3 theme that you can find on Cydia. I felt nostalgic so.. My first iDevice was an iPod Touch 2G with iPhone OS 2, which was amazing at the time. You lucky, would love to own an original iPhone !

    Well, once you disable multitasking it is still a pretty decent phone and as CC said there are many tweaks still available for iOS 6 so yeah why not.I'm surprised of what it can do in 2016 ????

    Well guys, I have some news for you. I changed the LCD and the battery and guess what, the device is working perfectly ! iOS 6.1.6, it is unlocked and now jailbroken

    Sadly, tried that a few times and the screen won't turn on now. Might change the LCD if the dock connector happens to be working. Concerning my avatar, Thanks! I learned a lot about him and I'm interested in politics I have tried to reseat it many times and it doesn't want to turn on anymore. Maybe I was lucky last time. As for DFU, good to know, I'll try that as soon as I have the new battery but you seem to be right, I think it only powers on when I connect it to the AC adapter, no luck with my MBP. edit: the LCD connector seems to be damaged, maybe I did but as the screen was already solid white I guess it was toasted anyway.
