I removed the link as it didn't pertain to what you are looking for. I will keep my eye open for any new information that will help you.

I think hes talking about how he has a Power PC mac and not an Intel Mac. I've noticed all the Mac tutorials mention "for INTEL macs only". Although this information may be on the link you directed him to. If it is, sorry. :)
You're right. I searched through several different sites and they all had instructions for Intel Macs.:(

Ironic, isn't it?!

It really sucks that the new phone from Apple, is only hackable using an Apple with an Intel chip (and of course the less-fortunate using an Intel Windows machine). All the Intel users are having all the fun and us lowly PPC folks are suffering. Forget "Global Warming", forget starving children in China, there are people that can't mod their iPhone, and that's just sad.

So nobody has come up with a mod useable by PPC users? Anyone want to offer a million dollars to the first person that can mod their iPhone using a PPC?! Please!?

no kidding. us mac users who have been obviously using macs a while (hence having PPC macs...) can't do a dang thing with our iPhones yet. yeah, i wish i could afford an intel right now, but i can't. i just wish some programmars would hook us PPC users up. even if it's just ringtones!

ok guys there is some hope =D.... let me go into details

there is this thing out there called iPHUC (iPHoneUtilityClient) which lets you run jailbreak from your PPC mac.... sounds great and dandy, cept one tihng, everything needs to be done through the terminal....

here is the link http://iPhone.fiveforty.net/wiki/index.php/IPHUC.

So i tried it, it didn't work.... so i went on irc, and talked to one of the guys there on the Iphuc channel, he helped me out lots, we got pretty far, until we got stuck... so basically i am going to redownload eveyrthing to see if that works... If it does me n the guys working on it will post a tutorial on how to do this for us PPC users....

Weve waited long enough.... Time to do something about it...
