How to replace Finder

Find on the OSBoot partition. Its in System/Library/CoreServices.

cd /Volumes/OSBoot/System/Library/CoreServices

Rename to Copy in your replacement app and rename it to

cp /<some-path>/

Now, navigate into its Contents/MacOS folder and copy its bin to Finder.

cd Contents/MacOS
cp CenterStage Finder

For me, CenterStage worked with the remote, but failed to play a movie that I placed /Volumes/Media/Scratch/Users/frontrow/Movies

  • Note: The watchdog issue is not yet resolved, so the system will reboot after a bit.

UPDATE: CenterStage will play mp4. The trick is to press and hold select when on the movie of choice.
