Hi. I have had an iBook g4 for a few months now, but am getting annoyed by the qwerty keyboard, and I want to change the layout to Dvorak. Has anyone done this with an iBook? How can I get the keys off without smashing them. They seem to have this weird mechanism on the bottom of it that looks really fragile. Thanks for helping.
Okay, Since nobody posted, I just went ahead and tried it. I used a screwdriver to pop all the keys off. I went to put them back in place, and realized that the hooks on the backs of a few of the keys were broken. I had to use epoxy to glue them back in place. After that, I decided, well, I might as well continue, so I put them back on in Dvorak layout. The only bother is that I lost my numpad, and the numbers are all in random places, but eventually I will sand them off. If anyone else wants to do this, be sure to pry the keys from the top, not bottom or sides. here's a picture. http://s465.photobucket.com/albums/rr19/f00thead/?action=view¤t=PC020031.jpg What do you think?
