    MiniVmac is an oldschool mac system emulator.

    I didnt make this app!

    The displayed program is not included in my standard package.


    How to download

    Ok first i want to say that this is 100 % legal because Apple puts all old software for free download at http://support.apple.com/kb/TA48312?viewlocale=en_US

    So i have made a .rar-archive with a few free mac programs and Mac OS 7.
    Here is the link:
    www.gimtimes.de/IphoneVmac.rar


    The following install progress is the same on both disks:

    After downloading, extract it using Winrar.

    Add this Cydia Source over Manage -> Sources -> Add
    http://apt.namedfork.net/iphone/

    Download minivmac. (Category: Emulators)

    SSH into your ipod.

    Open /Applications/minivmac.app/ and now upload the extracted stuff.

    When ready:

    Open the Minivmac app. Swipe left with two finger. Select the disk called 24M...

    Now Mac os 7 starts!

    To use the apps just click on the harddrive symbol

    important information:

    means suspending could slow down your ipod



    Other commands in the app:

    Tap with two fingers to toggle screen size.

    Swipe up with two fingers to show the keyboard, down to hide it.

    Swipe left with two fingers to insert disks.

    Swipe right with two fingers for settings.



    How to add your own mac os apps and where to get free ones:

    Here is another dsk file with more Games:

    www.gimtimes.de/games-disk.DSK

    1. Download this Tool
    ftp://ftp.uni-freiburg.de/pub/pc/msdos/diskutil/mac/hfvexplorer131.zip

    Extract the one(s) you want to use.

    3.Extract the tool you downloaded

    Slide Vmaclink.exe onto HFVExplorer

    5. Now open a disk

    6. In the HFVExplorer, search the programs you want, mark them and drop them on the untitled Harddrive on the left side.

    7. After youre done, save the disk

    8.Copy the disk into /Applications/minivmac.app/

    How to use those new Apps now on your Ipod

    First start your Minivmac normally with the standard 24M disk you choose every time.
    After Mac Os started, swipe again left with two fingers and select the disk you made.
