Authored by: fritztoch on Mar 04, '08 09:56:08AM
I simply used FrontRow Enabler: http://andrewescobar.com/frontrow/
Worked on my G4 Mac mini and iBook G4 800MHz.

10.4: Another way to run Front Row on any Mac

I have also done this many times by downloading Front Row (version 1.3.1) directly from Apple. and then using Pacifist to install it.
hope this helps.

10.4: Another way to run Front Row on any Mac
Authored by: RobK on Mar 11, '08 06:55:39AM

Front Row Enabler was the first widely distributed program that enabled front row on Macs without an IR sensor. But it appears that Front Row Enabler is no longer being developed. Pity!

As a result, Front Row Enabler does NOT run on 10.4.11. If you were using Front Row Enabler and you upgraded your old Powerbook to 10.4.11, you will find that Front Row will no longer work.

Front Row Enabler also does not support the latest version of Front Row for Tiger, version 1.3.1 - unless you do a hack.

I would also be nervous with the approach used by Front Row Enabler. It patches system binaries.

Personally, I prefer the approach outlined in this hint which just adds a new OPEN SOURCE Kernel extension. It is much safer and more reliable in my view.
