Why does it say it is not supported on my system?? Is this only for Intel Macs?? If so- why isn’t there one made for power pc?

iPhoneHeat June 11, 2010, 1:35 am

Running Mac OS X?

Zouloum June 13, 2010, 9:52 am

Since when you can install windows on a power-pc mac?

JonnyB June 11, 2010, 12:44 pm

Please Release a powerpc or universal binary for this. A lot of us can’t afford to replace our good old powerbooks with a new macbook pro just yet… :-\

Have you downloaded the firmware? Download from here: http://www.iphoneheat.com/2010/06/download-ios-4/
If already downloaded then locate it where you saved it..
