    Very nice progress... Let's see how far to go before we can equip this thing with Aqua and all the other stuff

    Thumbs up

    here's a thought:

    you can use the com.apple.loginwindow.plist file to specify the path to the Finder that is to be launched when a user logs in like by running this as the target user:

    defaults write com.apple.loginwindow Finder /Path/to/Finder.app

    in which case the path would point to the aTV'd Finder.

    This way, you might be able to have a standard OS X user, and an aTV user, and switch back and forth.

    I'd love to give this a shot...

    I provided details on the patch way only to a few people so far, appletvhacks.net got it to working as it seems they put a story up on it. For myself I will only provide infos on the hack, but I won't privide any files which are not conform to copyrigth laws.

    Here is the patch way in summary:

    - The finder needs to be decrypthed from Apple's AES256 file protection build in OSX
    (infos on the process are not available, please don't ask for infos on it!)
    General Infos can be found here
    - After this two hardware checks have to be disabled.

    Later on I will post a short summerize on the "AppleTV OS" stay tunned.
    For support and more infos go to irc.osx86.hu

    Lightbulb AppleTV Finder.app is Front Row.app v2.0

    I've got nearly as far as semthex (just got here and realised he had done it already) in patching Apple TV Finder.app to run on my Mac.

    Luckily I'm trying on a real Mac Book Pro, so no decryption to worry about yet.

    I've found if you copy over the Finder.app and have a look at the contents there are a few odd things.

    In the .plist, Finder.app version is 2.0 and is identified as com.apple.frontrow - It's Front Row

    also, the PkgInfo file says it is of type APPLfnrw - finder is of type FNDRMACS

    I tried renaming it to Front\ Row.app instead of Finder.app and renaming Contents/MacOS/Finder to Contents/MacOS/Front\ Row - now finder runs it instead of Front Row, but it fails the hardware check (I can see it doing it in the system log)...

    So - replace Front Row not Finder and it will co-exist! Looks like a leopard feature!
