Can't believe it's been almost two years since I did my first I-Opener mod... I modded a V1 with a IMOD kit, 10GB HD, and put an audio jack on the thing.. I installed Win98 on it and it seemed to work great.
However, I had a problem I could never get to be fixed - USB perhipherals (like the Linksys USB Network adaptor) always ended up crashing in Windows 98. Since I needed this on a network, I put Win95 and one of those parallel port Ethernet adaptors on it and it worked fine. I then sold it to a company.
Now, two years later, I'm wanting one of these to put on my kitchen counter. I found that BadFlash had some for $49.99, so I ordered one and an IMOD kit (bracket, cable, keyboard adaptor). I also ordered an i-Op fan from Tennmax. (I forgot to order a new bios since it's a V5, but I will soon). I also have a 20GB 2.5" HD, so I have just about everything I need to get this working.
Is the above everything I need to get to get a V5 working? I've been contemplating getting a Microsoft 802.11b USB adaptor (BB has them for $49 after rebate), but am wary because of the USB problem I had with my V1. Is this the case with the V5 or has this been solved (if it has been solved, where is the solution)?
Thanks in advance - my wife's going to love this on the kitchen counter to look up recipies. :)
