    Question Dedicated OS X discussion for Macintosh / Hackintosh Users would be great

    I think it would be cool to have a dedicated OS X discussion. I was able to follow through a few guides, mod 3 wii consoles and get WBFS Manager working all on my Mac Book Pro and it would be cool for new users to the forum that happen to use OS X to have a friendly place get answers directly from other OS X users and Moderators.

    Would probably be helpful, at least have a section for wii apps that are available to mac users, since I never know what to tell them.

    so far the only tool i haven't been able to find for OS X was the one for converting themes to some other format. Don't understand themes well enough yet to want to risk it so i didn't really care.

    Raidrunner you say you've found all the tools you needed. Can you offer up a suggestion for a good wbfs manager for transferring and viewing games on my hard drive. I'm soooooo tired of boot-camping just to transfer a file onto a disk.

    oh ya and I wouldn't mind having a utility native in OsX that I can pull alt .dol files out of iso's with as well. Is there anything like wiiscrubber native in OsX?

    Your help would be appreciated

    not many apps available for macs No wii scrubber,
    The only 2 I have are wii patcher and wbfs manager.

    Boot Camp is the only way at the moment

    I'm soooooo tired of boot-camping just to transfer a file onto a disk.
    are you referring to burning an iso?

    i'm using WBFS for Mac OS X you can get it Here.

    I don't know what pulling Alt.dol files out of ISOs is yet but i assume i just haven't gotten that far in to this wii stuff yet. As far as burning my ISOs i just right click on them, open with Disk Utility and highlight the iso i want to burn and click burn. So far i have been burning on Sony DVD-R media at 4x i've burned about 10 discs now with no coasters. I did burn 1 disc with imgburn in bootcamp just to see and i got a coaster but i suspect a defective blank disc.
    If i helped you please click thanks.

    Trust me there are a small amount of apps available for mac ie 2 as I can see at the moment and Wii patcher is a stinky java based program but does the job of region change and update removal.

    It sounds like the tools you use to manipulate ISO files are not currently available. Maybe through the OS X discussion we could get some of the application creators to release universal binaries to us so we can compile OSX Versions. YAY!

    @Acoustic Sam- if the link provided doesn't work, go to the USB HDD guide HERE and that link works for WBFS Mgr for Mac OS X. I don't know for certain that the link provided by raaidrunner does not work, but I think that link goes back to a site that is closed (tehskeen).

    I don't disagree it would be nice to have a forum dedicated to Mac discussion. I mean we have one for iphones and ipads and all that junk, so why not lol. But at the same time regarding specific apps being the purpose of such a forum, there just isn't a market right now because the apps don't exist, not nearly enough of them anyway. If that were the sole reason by itself I can't support the idea. But as far as the discussion aspect, I wouldn't mind having a place to chat with other mac users or give advice on how best to utilize a mac when the wii is concerned.
