So far I'm making a decent bit of progress with leopardizing my tiger installation. I havent actually made the leopard applications work on tiger, but basically I'm giving the tiger installation the leopard look. Once I have completed the majority of it I will attempt to build a script or installer. Hopefully JSN will make some progress in getting the leo apps to work correctly in tiger.

The biggest step I can think of is getting the dock to work as much like the dock in leopard as possible. This means the 3d look, as well as the expanded view of any folders on it.

permissions: fixed, dock now loading up in Tiger, but not showing.

update: dock refuses to show, but it is loading itself... Seems to make Finder crash...

update2: Tiger dock works in Leopard... but Leopard dock does not work in Tiger...

update3: got Leopard Finder to load up in Tiger... half working. I can see the volume, battery, bluetooth and time icons and click on them, there is no Apple nor file menu to click right now. Will work with the console tomorrow.

Also: The new system version fix is almost ready, some new options coming... also an Apple logo fix.

UPDATE: NEW VERSION 2.0

I was trying to install iWork and iLife, but Mac won't install on 10.4.8, basically, the system is the same, we just needed to change a few strings to make the computer think it has 10.4.10 or so.

I created this utility that will allow you to easily change the version number to:

- 10.4.7
- 10.4.8
- 10.4.9
- 10.4.10
- 10.4.11
- 10.5
- 10.5.1
- 10.5.2
- etc...

Also, I made an utility to fix your Apple logo if you have another one from the distro you installed.

Have Fun!

Its not going to happen. There are too many dependencies within the leopard Finder and Dock for it to run under Tiger. I just installed Liger by spiderlama and shapeshifter and its pretty nice looking, albeit not completely like leopard.

HEY GUYS!
So... this is a little question I have.
I have Leopard 10.5.2 installed on my System and there's a nice little program I want to run that requires 10.5.3.
So, I remembered this program and thought that it should do the trick.
Has there been a newer version released to do such a thing that would work on leopard? Or, could I just make my own little version package of my own in there?
I guess what I'm asking is, does this work on Leopard at all? :D

Hi guys

I used this to install ilife 09 in Tiger 10.4.8.

Now I found a way to update to 10.4.11 but I am not sure if it says 10.4.11 because the update worked or because I had hacked it before.

How can I be sure?

Note: I updated it withouth changing kernel so I am still using the kernel from 10.4.8 (intel sse2).

Thanks

Perhaps anyone else is looking for it.

Didn't found 2.0 version JSN1 System Version Fix.mpkg.zip anywhere.

Only found (older) version here:
https://rs307tg.rapidshare.com/#!downlo...mpkg.rar|28|R~0

I think it only changes
/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
