The only yo-yo I had for my Blueberry clamshell died and my failed attempt to repair it resulted in a fried mobo. My spare/backup mobo was known to be working but the problem is getting power to it. I was thinking of making a simple dock with two pins to go into the bottom of my iBook. I already know that the left pin (side near ports) is the +24V pin, but the right side (CD side) does not show continuity to ground - did I miss something?
I remember some time back a vague side discussion that touched on the pin holes on the bottom of these machines but I cannot find the thread. Does anyone know about (or had any success) running a clamshell off these pins?
