Hack to run iMovie 7.1 on G4s
Authored by: Transient on Dec 09, '08 12:44:08PM

You're in the right spot. The reason it doesn't make sense to you is because you probably don't understand hex.

It works like this... At line 0012B630, the first column/digit is 0012B630. The next would be 0012B631, and the one after that 0012B632, etc. So the numbers are counting up as you go.

Hex decimal is a bit different than the regular numbers you're used to. Instead of digits from 0 to 9, they go from 0 to F. Just like this:

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F which is equivalent to
0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15

So to find 0012B63C you scroll down to 0012B630 and then count across from 0 to 12.

Hopefully that makes sense. I know it can be a bit confusing at first when dealing with numbers other than base 10 (our normal counting system).
