What is Classic Environment for Leopard (9A241)?

With the beta (9A241) OSX 10.5 Leopard build, it seemingly is possible to use the Classic Environment (Mac OS 9), a feature that Apple had removed in official OSX 10.5 Leopard builds.

To make this hack work, you will need to install Mac OS X 10.5 Beta (9A241) and then replace your OSX 10.5 (9A241) Classic Startup app located in /System/Library/CoreServices/ as well as replace your OSX 10.5 (9A241) located in /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Classic.prefPane with the ones included in this download.

After copying the System Folder included in this download to your hard drive, open Terminal and run these commands:

sudo chown root /System/Library/CoreServices/Classic

sudo chmod u+s /System/Library/CoreServices/Classic
