Front Row Enabler – Run Front Row on Unsupported Macs

Nov 29, 2006 - 4 Comments

Does your Mac not support Front Row? Have you been drooling green in envy as your friends flip through their media collections? Drool no more, there is a solution to get Front Row running on your Mac! Front Row Enabler is a simple app that patches Mac OS X and allows the installation of Front Row on technically unsupported Macs.

The process is a little bit involved, but follow the instructions and you should have no problem getting Front Row up and running.. Before you get started, be sure to have Mac OS X 10.4.8 installed, iTunes 6 and iPhoto 6 (or later), and you need to download a few things.

Download Front Row Enabler 1.3.5
Download Front Row 1.3

For the installation instructions, visit the creator of Front Row Enabler’s tutorial:

Andrew Escobar’s How-To.

PS: For another (supposedly easier) way, there is a ‘cracked’ version of available for download via Torrent. This version apparently runs on versions of Mac OS X prior to 10.4.8 – it is untested and unsupported, use at your own risk!

    What you downloaded was a bz2 file. bz2 is a form of compression utility. If for some reason you can not open the file again, next time try opening the terminal and running “bunzip2 filename”

    Excellent! For some reason the file kept downloading as a .b2z (or whatever) earlier, but this time it worked fine. Thanks.

    The .dmg file was probably corrupted, try downloading it again maybe with a different browser. Worked fine for me in Safari.

    I tried this out, but when I downloaded Enabler and tried to open the disk image, I got a message telling me that the image failed to mount. Any suggestions?
