PPC Workaround For 10.4 Dashcode Beta

/ 16 July 2007

Earlier today Eric found what to change to make Dashcode on PPC-based macs still work. Follow my instructions for the i386 workaround, but instead replace “A0 07 D7” with “A0 0B BF”. To test this I set Dashcode to run under Rossetta (in the “Get Info…” window), and learned just how slow the app is when run on a PPC mac (or under Rossetta on an Intel mac). That can seem quite scary as it was just a few months ago (like maybe 1.5 to 2.5 months) that I was using one of those (slow) PPC-based macs and today I have a very different view of the OS since the Intel macs are so much faster.
