    I have 6C115 and it seems to be about the same as 6C106. If anyone has any questions I will try to answer them.

    What? im not telling anyone where or how to get this... I will buy the retail version when it comes out because I in no way condone piracy. However its a beta so I'm checking it out.

    I downloaded Jag 6C115 yesterday, works great on my Ti800, but will not boot my B+W 300 upgraded to 500 G4 with XLR8 Zif. I get he new boot screen with the grey apple instead of the happy mac, but then I get a stop sign and it won't boot any further.

    A lot of people will be unhappy unless apple iron this bug out before GM!!

    my main question was WHY...meaning why would you pirate the OS? i highly oppose people using pirated apple software...if it's microsoft i'm ok with it.

    besides...i'm eagerly waiting for my 10.2 to come by fed ex :D

    I can't imagine who would actually WANT to pirate the new OS (or keep a beta version) and not purchase the final version, except for the price of the final version and because some of us still suffer from dial-up.

    As for your problems with grey screens and failure to boot up, at least realize that you are installing a BETA. So Apple cannot be held responsable for any errors that ƒ up your computer.

    And I'm pretty sure that the very final version of Jaguar will fix these problems.

    Why is this pirating software when I am allowed to download it from apple? If you have an ADC account, you are a beta tester rather than a software pirate! This is not some dodgy version of Jaguar I downloaded from Hotline... and I do not distribute my downloads to anyone else.

    I think the reason it won't install on my B+W is that the XLR8 zif modifies the firmware to allow the G4 to boot. I have had no problems installing on my Ti550, Ti800 or my PBG3 300 lombard. Either that or my CD-Rom is screwed...


    Anyway Jaguar is too close to GM now for a bug like that to still exist, so if it is a bug, i don't think it will be fixed in time, nevertheless I have reported the bug to Apple.

    So is it GM

    Seems to be a lot of conflicting rumors just now.

    Anyone know for sure?

    There's nothing wrong with being an ADC Beta tester so fu<k off.

    I was wondering, how's the support for external CD-RW drives. X.1.5 supports CD Burning through the finder on my TDK veloCD but iTunes 3 still won't burn me an Audio CD, which is why i just use Toast Titanium (which came with it, w00t!).

    Also, how is system responsiveness in menus/window resizing, any better?

    6C115 is supposed to be Release Candidate 1...meaning not quite GM, but pretty darn close.

    I haven't got 6C115, but on 6C98 my 500MHz iBook feels much faster. The only issue would be browser resizing which, although faster then in 10.1.5, is still slow as molasses. Still, my iBook has gained much speed from nothing more than a software upgrade.

    Oh good grief. Apple reads these forums. Apparently a lot closer than you Carracho punks do. Do you want Apple to add some stupid and annoying anti-piracy mechanism to OS X? They're saying they're going to have to. If you really feel like you must download pirated software (and really, must you?), for Pete's sake, don't openly blab about it in the forums!

    I mean, really, would you walk into a K-Mart and talk loudly with your friends about things you had shoplifted?

    Wow, does Apple really pay someone to sit around and go through all these posts on MacRumors (and Spymac, MacOSRumors, AppleInsider, AstheAppleTurns, Thinksecret, RailheadDesign, MacNN, MacOSXRumors, etc.)???

    I sure wouldn't mind getting that job. If I had a nickel for every dumb post I've read on this forum...

    And a quarter for every closed thread. :rolleyes:

    Apple hasn't implemented support yet on iTunes for those drives, I guess. That's why I recommend getting a LaCie. :p

    Hey! steady on there... I don't work for Apple, I'm just a Beta Tester. I just thought I'd tell you all how cool Jaguar is, and how close to GM it must be now.

    Be warned about installing 10.2 on machines with patched firmware, I reckon the new BootX will only recognise clean roms.

    Then again it could be my CD-ROM, I'll stick a new one in tomorrow and test it. I'll report back then. (funny thing is it mounts the jag disk in 10.1.5 and reads it ok just wont boot)

    No, those windows aren't in the frontmost application, so the titlebars go transparent...just like 10.1.

    Don't worry. It happens to the best of us. And of course you to, kungfu. :p

    I wonder if the final build of 10.2 changed the spinning [whatever] waiting cursor to something more "aqua". What does the cursor looks like in 6C115?

    I'm sure many people "pirating" the pre-releases will go out and buy the final...who wants to reformat every time they get a new pirated upgrade? sounds like a waste of time to me...

    I'd have to say that there was a much nicer blue spinning ball around for a while (take a look at the one used in the speedownload application icon).

    The current one in 10.2 though beats the hell out of the pixelated rainbow one in 10.1.

    iSub volume control

    I'm not sure if everyone knows this, but you can now control your iSub volume from the Sound Preferences. I know tons of people have been waiting for this :)
