12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What do you need?


1. Installed Front Row (version from Restore DVD). Use the instruction at http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?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/support/downloads/frontrow121.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.

restore the old gma kexts


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!
