So it'll sell 12 copies instead of 11? Well worth it, I'd say.

Yes but osx is not my preference, if someday we can install os4.0 in ppc macs may be more usefull for me.

This is only my opinion.

No other use for it? Maybe as a flowerpot or an ashtray?

Well, that's true. Get a decent PC for your work/gaming and a Amiga 1200/4000 for your nostalgic feelings.

Also he wonders if this wannabe loader.iso could be a christmas joke to raise again the interest of the community to new hardware, outside new Amigas or Classic Amigas, but sure it definitely not comes from ACube.
Funny. Especially how your comment is directly the opposite of this one (ssolie):

Post #47 already gives full info on how to make it work! Other than that you need a ppc mini, it will work if it reads PowerMac 10,2,4 4.9.4f1, date 07/12/05

My guess is a remaster of OS4 iso with these "new" files, boot the mac mini with the options mentioned, cross fingers and bang head 'cause the firmware from your ebay mac mini doesn't match the one required by this "hack". Nice try though.

Complains about missing configuration files, and thats it...
I have the same result on a macmini ppc powermac10, 1 4.8.9f1 bootrom built on 12/10/04

This means that need a firmware update?

I dont buy my macmini ppc from ebay.

This isn't fair!

I ordered a copy of OS4 only to discover there wasn't any hardware available on which to run it.
I canceled the the order because of this, and now it it seems with AmigaMac's help it would have worked on my MacMini after all!!!

Should I order another copy? I don't know now.

I don't get this. All this 'it's real, it's not real. It works, it doesn't work' doesn't fill me with confidence!
It makes me begin to think the whole Amiga thing is just smoke and mirrors! Surely Amiga.inc, Hyperion, etc have a coherent strategy for maintaining and developing the Amiga platform..?

What next? Will all this turn out to be a hoax?

Beat me to it Does Apple provides open firmware updates for g4 mac minis? Never heard of it (only for intel that I know of). The mentioning of ebay was just a joke, as it seems to be the only place to get them these days (g4).

@Toe Toe

welcome to the unmerry merry-go-round....

the only future for amiga, is the one YOU make... theres little point in investing in re-hased 10 year old technology. its best kept save your cash invest in a real investment... even belly-button lint would be more profitable.

The Amiga is ONLY ALIVE in the souls that use it.... dont expect any company to lead the way... only to obfuscate and mislead...

meh... i have wast too much time on this OS4 non-sense.. more beer methinks...
