I wish I could afford one.Here is something I've found."Section 1: Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) users read this first, Mac OS 10.6 users skip to section 2NOTE: I am pretty sure that if you are on a PPC Mac this will not work, because PPC Macs cannot install Java 1.6 only Java 1.5.0_26First make sure that you have Java 6 installed, you can see your java versions in the “Java Preferences” app found in the Utilities folder.If you don’t have it installed, run software update to bring to up to speed in the latest updates.While you have the ”Java Preferences” app open make sure that Java 6 is at the top in the two lists. If not, drag it to the top.Find your Minecraft application (Also called the Minecraft Launcher). Right click it and choose show package contents.Navigate into the contents folder and open the Info.plist with TextEdit.Find these lines and change the 1.5+ to 1.6+, save it and close TextEdit.JVMVersion1.5+After doing that, go to the Finder and press command+shift+g and past in this path /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/A/Resources/MacOSOnce you’re in the folder you should see a file named “JavaApplicationStub”, copy that to the Mac OS folder in the Minecraft app ( Minecraft.app>”Right click and Show Package Contents”>Contents>MacOS )Yay! Your mods should now be able to work! Next step is to install them!Section 2 is a rewritten version of a post in the MC Forums. via Mac 10.5 and modding – Minecraft Forums.Section 2: Installing the mods into the minecraft.jar file.Find the minecraft.jar file. It is located at /Users/####/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/Open the minecraft.jar using the Archive Utility (Right click>Open With>Archive Utility).A folder should now appear in the bin folder called “minecraft”, it will have lots of .class files in it.Drop the .class files that came with the mod into this folder, then find and delete the META_INF folder.Select all the files in the “minecraft” folder, right click and choose “Compress XXX items”. (If you select the “minecraft” folder instead of it’s contents when compressing, minecraft will not work!)It will make a .zip file called “Archive.zip”, move it into the bin folder. Rename the mincraft.jar file to mincraft.old.jar, and rename the “Archive.zip” to minecraft.jar. Finder will ask you if you really want to change the extension to .jar, choose change.Now your mods should be installed and working, and you can delete the “minecraft” folder that contains the .class files since it isn’t needed anymore.Some mods also require that you put their support files in the /Users/####/Library/Application Support/minecraft/mods folder, check your downloaded mod for a “mods” folder and move it’s contents to the /Users/####/Library/Application Support/minecraft/mods folder.Section 3: Alternate method of installing modsFind the minecraft.jar file. It is located at /Users/####/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/Open the minecraft.jar using the Archive Utility (Right click>Open With>Archive Utility).A folder should now appear in the bin folder called “minecraft”, it will have lots of .class files in it.Drop the .class files that came with the mod into this folder, then find and delete the META_INF folder.Now instead of compressing the folders contents as is done above, simply rename the “minecraft” folder with the .class files to minecraft.jarDownside to this method is that minecraft balks when a trying to install a update, it is looking for a real .jar file and only finds a folder. Strangely the game itself works fine, just updating doesn’t.So for updates, you just need to deleted the whole bin folder and start up the launcher which will then download the updated files when using this method.Section 4: FinishYour mods should now be installed and working, if not it is very likely that you made an error when re-compressing the mincraft folder contents.If the mods don’t work or Minecraft doesn’t even get to the game menu, delete the minecraft.jar file, rename the minecraft.old.jar to minecraft.jar and try again. First time I did this, it took me several tries before I got it right.Another Way of Doing It.Commenter Peter points out that you can also do this through the command line.There is a third method for opening the minecraft.jar file and in my opinion it is the easiest by far.Open terminal and copy/past this code section, cd ~ mkdir mctmp cd mctmp jar xf ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jarnow in users there is a folder called MCTMP (this is the minecraft.jar file) pass (move) your .class files from the downloaded mod into that folder, then copy/paste this code section into terminal: NOTE: do NOT delete the the META_INF folder. the code will do it for you.rm META-INF/MOJANG_C.* jar uf ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar ./ cd .. rm -rf mctmpNow boot up minecraft and have fun playing!"Source: http://mcyukon.wordpress.com/2011/01/19/modding-minecraft-in-...Understood that all perfectly.
