iBook tealight-fix: the aftermath ^_^

Right, in the comments-thread itself there are people reporting successes in repairing old iBooks with my tealight-fix. I already was a happy man when I managed to fix my own iBook (which now is sold btw), but I couldn’t have foreseen the spin-off this would get. Now of course, projects of me get blogged more often ( ^_^ ), but a lot of people looking at the stuff I do or people actually trying it out for themselves is quite a difference. Any way, I love it (even though I told everyone to not try this *^_^*) and I’d like to hear about every one succeeding in this tealight-fix.

If anyone knows more attempts which’ve been put online, please drop them in the comments, I’ll change the links in hyperlinks afterwards.

    I’m actually having intermittent issues with the iBook now though. What did you do to keep it cool after you fixed yours? Mine works if I don’t move it… but is a little flacky.

    I’m not sure if I understand this. The videochip hardly gets hot normally so I’ve done nothing to keep it cool or such. I’ve putten a shim in between the chip and the casing, out of precaution, that’s all actually (and mine still works!) :-)
