    Hi! I need help!!! I have a PowerBook G4 (which is pretty old) and i just got iPhone G4. I cant sync those two together as my OS is old. Is there any way to upgrade my OS to Mac OS X 10.5.8 which is required??? Thank you in advance!!!

    It's just iPhone 4, and yes, you can. Purchase Mac OS X Leopard (I think it's available on Amazon) to upgrade to 10.5.8

    Not too sure about this. I would contact Apple's support website for this matter, and I only say that because I'm not sure if the later versions of Mac OS X include firmware support for the hardware that's in your Powerbook.

    Agreed, I don't think PPC chips are supported under SL.

    SL = Snow Leopard, Intel only.

    Leopard is still supported on PPC and I have an iBook running 10.5.8, so I would expect the powerbook G4 would work on Leopard too.

    Leopard is Universal. I have it running on a 2005 PowerBook G4.
