I realize the posts on this topic are a little old. I'm just wondering if someone has succesfully done this? Hopefully this project hasn't been abandoned.

It seems like the biggest hurdle is to retrofit the pin-out from the Macmini to the original iMac G4 monitor. With the schematic, this can't be too bad, can it? - although, it looks like disassembly of the monitor arm is an issue

I agree with those in agreement with this mod concept. I don't think that the computer will ever looks as good as it did when Mac came out with the G4 iLamp. I'd love to keep this idea alive and give it a shot myself. I'm pretty handy with electronics and am willing to give this a shot.

Has anyone had success with the pin-out mapping, or is there some unforseen issue?
