What do you need?

1. Installed Front Row (version from Restore DVD). Use the instruction at http://forum.osx86pr...showtopic=10470 ([HowTo] Native FrontRow without any illegal hacks? It is easy :().
2. iTunes 6.0.4, iPhoto 6.0.2
3. Mac OS X 10.4.4 or 10.4.5

How to...?

1. Download Front Row 1.2.1 Update ( http://www.apple.com...rontrow121.html ).
2. Go to FrontRowUpdate.mpkg > Contents > Resources.
3. Install FrontRowUpdate1.2.1.pkg with Pacifist ( it is free http://www.charlessoft.com/ )

And here you are... no reboot needed :(. Hooah!

I installed the FrontRow and AppleVA update. Now I'm getting a white screen instead of frontrow. :) I backed up AppleVA.framework before and restored it, but still only white screen.

I lost coreimage support. As you said, the AppleVAUpdate installed a new AppleIntelGMA950.kext. I deleted this kext and now I have coreimage back and the new frontrow of course! Thank you!

I lost movie trailers when updating to 1.2.1, so I'm back to 1.1 till I find a fix.
