[REQ] Mac OS X Betas

Post by XDude »

I'm not quite sure of i can request this, if not please close it.
Recently, I'm looking for some mac Betas, especially tiger and leopard.
Any tiger betas would be nice and for leopard, i want a build called 9A377a.
I hope someone could help.

Edit: If anyone have build 9A283, please upload it

They may kind of count as betas but Ive got the WWDC builds of tiger home and server(as far as I can remember) but I cant find them. The home version had and interesting menu bar becuz when you used it it had an aqua experience but it wasnt very stable. The server version was more stable but wasnt much different from the final(it has a key but its useless as a server as its expired).
Once i find them Ill see if I can get them uploaded somewhere but only as long as its alright. IIRC they can recognize normal updates but it refuses to install them it may work if you were to replace all the darwin files with the final versions darwin files. Not sure id recomend it.

Yeah, Its the hardest one to find or did it even leak.

The is a build of leopard on the server, since it's there I think it's alright to ask.

On the topic of Mac Betas, anyone got OS X DP3? I've been almost everywhere and I can't find that specific Developer Preview.

Thanks, Rixel! Your upload is appreciated (especially after it's moved, although it isn't a rar so I hope Andy still moves it...).

Just set your Mac's clock back to a date before the expiration date (May 15th 2001) and it should work, as far as I know there's no crack for it.

What platform are you running? at the RARLab download page, you can download RAR for Windows, Pocket PC, Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD and MS-DOS. The only disadvantage is that only the Windows and Pocket PC versions have a GUI. The rest are command line.
