The basic version of the fourth CS release, usable as 30-day trial or with a valid serial.

Though the Adobe Creative Suite is no longer supported by Adobe, and Adobe has informed all previous customers that their licenses have been withdrawn, activation servers for CS4 should still be online at the time in which this was uploaded (Aug 2019).

Creative Suite 4 Design Standard Serial Number: 1327-0463-1476-9094-2757-6555

Architecture: PPC (Carbonized) x86 (Intel:Mac)

Officially supports PowerPC G5 and Intel Macs.

Unofficially works great on the later PowerPC 7450 G4s, such as the aluminum PowerBook, G4 Mac Mini and iBook G4.

Not bad, that gets Leopard PPC covered. So combined with the publicly-available Little Snitch 1.2.4 for Tiger and lower, that gets OS X PPC covered. (Or Little Snitch 2.5.4 for both for those with a license.)

TCPBlock is another option for PPC. I used it back in the day.

I discovered LuLu yesterday, and while awesome, it's in dire need of Mac PPC binaries! Thankfully both Hands off! and Little Snitch are there (the latter having a free PPC-only version, whose working serial can be found in the official website).

Also, thanks for the great work, 24bit and Duality! More abandonware preserved now. Smile

Edit: Just discovered Hands Off! is Intel-only, even as far back as version 1.x, if not even the earlier releases. Ugh. Well, that settles which of the two (Little Snitch & Hands Off!) is the clear winner. Smile

Thanks for the brushing up Duality!
Given that the activation servers are still online, it should be addressed that disconnecting your Mac from the net is a MUST, if you plan to put in the serial above.
A firewall blocking outgoing connections should do too, for those here knowing what they are doing. Smile
Little Snitch, Hands Off! and Lulu for the Intel rigs come to mind.
If the activation server gets hold of the serial, it will become blacklisted in an instant.

Lulu is open source and donation ware:
