XPostFacto brings Tiger to original iBook

The minimum system requirements for OSX 10.4 Tiger: G3 with at least 256MB RAM and a FireWire port. The first clamshell editions in Blueberry and Tangerine as well as the first Special Edition in Graphite without FireWire therefore accept only OSX 10.3 Panther as maximum OS. The newer Clamshell iBooks models with FireWire can use Tiger without any problem. With the help of the software XPostFacto you can override the limitations of the Tiger installation routine.
