  1. Works like a champ! Thanks, Mate! 😎

  2. Have tried these hacks with both 2.0 and 2.0.1 and it worked fine on my 12 inch 867 mhz powerbook ( 1.12gb ram 10.5.2 ), but after applying to 2.1 I get ‘Error The installed graphics card does not meet the minimum requirements for Aperture.” . I have gone back to the older hacked version that still works fine, any idea why the graphics check has started tripping.

    Hi, thanks to Ian et al. I’ve been able to install and run 2.1 on a MDD G4 Dual 1.25 with 2Gb and Radeon 9000 Pro, 10.4.11. After changing the RAM and clock requirements I got the bad graphics card message during installation. This post helped with it. After that I did the above hex edit following the EXACT directions key by key.

    Nice work, thanks.

    What have you found for version 2.1.1?

  5. Roy – nothing so far as I’ve been away for a few days so haven’t had a machine to play on. I’ll try to get a post for 2.1.1 out RSN.

  6. Just for the search engines out there, I did manage to find the new offset for 2.1.1 yesterday, and this now has its own post.
