This is amazing. Just used it on a 1.2GHz, 14" G4 iBook. It seems to 'unlock' the dual monitor features that are present in the Powerbook line. Apple seems to disable this feature, so as to keep Powerbook sales up with professionals. Very impressed. The only problem is that the applescript is in german -- so you need to know that 'ja' means 'yes'.

Very very useful, works well on my ibook G4 12". It does not recognize the ext display max resolution, so when I plug the ibook to different monitors, sometimes the video becomes unreadable. It would be gret if would be added a hotkey to set the correct resolution even when the video is unreadable.

I'm trying hard to make it work on my iBook G4, 933Mhz. I can't boost the screensize at all after install. Sugestions?

Does it works with the iBook 500 (dual USB and Firewire)- RageM3?, I've read it will kill your iBook for ever!! Is this script any different?

Warning, this applescript can ultimately damage your logic board.

While the video card (ATI RageM7) can easily handle the dual monitors, the ibook & it's logic board itself may not.

After I used the original hand key method of this hack, my lap top functioned as normal for about 3 months, until it ultimately fried the logic board.

Don't do it, it's not worth the risk.

it's an -- lately intensive discussed -- applescript released by c't ("computertechnik", germany's no 1 computer magazine) which caused in an earlier version serious problems for owners of the ibook 600. the problem seems to be fixed right now ... and u may use it now in an appropriate way. but never forget: haxies like this are processed on your own risk, never ever forget.
