Installing Front Row on OSX Lion

. July 21, 2011 . 0 Comments

Ralph Perdomo reports that he has ported OS X Front Row to Lion by moving several frameworks and the application itself from his Snow Leopard install and has provided an optional installer for anyone who didn’t keep a Snow Leopard install around.

“Since its introduction in OS X Tiger, I have been using Front Row (along with the Perian plugin) as a media center solutions for my Macs. Once I discovered that Front Row was removed from the betas in Lion I took this as an ominous sign that it would not be making the final cut. Mucking around however, I discovered that there are only a few core files necessary to get Front Row to work in Lion. Those files are:

/System/Library/CoreServices/Front Row.app
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/BackRow.framework
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iPhotoAccess.framework
/System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.RemoteUI.plist
/Applications/Front Row.app”
