I am trying to download Front Row ENABLER 1.5 from the URL: andrewescobar.com as suggested by MacUpdate but his page cannot be had.
How do I go about downloading this FRONT ROW ENABLER 1.5 for my Mac laptop 10.4X?
Anyone out there who can help me?? Does anyone have a copy available to me?
Wait for the spinning wheel to stop (believe it or not it WILL boot, takes about 10 minutes). Go do something else and come back. Once booted, everything will be INCREDIBLY slow. Go download 'Applejack' from here no matter what. Install and run. After that try Apple's Disk Utility' or 'DiskWarrior'. Problem should be fixed.
Ok, I installed and enabled, and it appeared to work. However, on restarting, I can't find Front Row ANYWHERE. I followed the instructions to the letter. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? BTW, I have a 1.42 Ghz eMac.
i just don't get it. i have a MacBook with v10.4.6 Mac OS X and i'm sure i have Front Row enabled in it. any good reason why i need this app?
This is for machines that did not ship with Front Row...
Includes Front Row????
Wow, I'm not sure who's more gutsy: you, for packaging and redistributing Apple software, or MU, for letting you post it here.
From his website it looks like you still have to download Front Row from Apple. From what I can determine, Enabler now has the option to *install* Front Row from within Enabler instead of running Enabler and having it patch the Front Row installer so you can install etc.
got it to install on my G5, but no matter what I do can't get it to install on my G4. Re-did the 10.4.8 update, intall F.R., go to enable. and it says "can't enable..."
Shame, the G4 is the one I really need it on.
The Disk Image is not corrupt. The developer has added another extension on the the download that will make you're computer see it as an archive. Just remove the extra extension (so .dmg is the only extension) and then try opening it.
What I ended up doing was reinstalling, but "preserve users" under the "options" when you go to intall.
This worked fine (Front Row and the enabler) with 10.4.5 and before, but not after.
The "preserve/intstall" at least sort of got things working in a somewhat painless way...I had a couple of hours getting things perfect after the reinstall, however.
This program has messed up my Mac Mini G4 someone please help me get my computer running again. It is stuck starting up and all i see is a blue screen and a spinning wheel. This has ruined my day.
Before Mac OS 10.4.5 this hack works fine for me on my mac mini G4. But today i want to use Front Row after a long time and it didn't work under 10.4.8. I downloaded this hack again, installed it and after a restart i can see only a blue screen, nothing more. I was happy that i have made a seperatly install of OS X on an external FireWire HD. I must boot from them and made a restore of the changed items. The manual for this you can find on the website of the publisher. But it was not so funny on the first moment
