Couldn't wait..so I downloaded and I'm so glad that I waited for this versus paying for Sidetrack. Sidetrack is great and all but this is free and works much better, especially the right click feature (never really liked using the trackpad for clicking). Thank You!!! cwager and if you ever need a sig made, lemme know and I'll make you one as some sort of compensation for this. This rocks!!!!!
NOW YOU SEE ME! 2.4 MBP and 2.0 MBP (running ubuntu)

I don't know if anyone knows this, but the developer updated the drivers with an Installer and a pref. pane to make this hack easier to use/install.

1st: Go to the website where you downloaded the drivers and they tell you how to uninstall. (Using terminal to remove files)
2nd: Search iScroll2 and delete all files that remain

Thats what I did when I wanted to install

I've archived and installed Tiger on my powerbook and - naturally - the hack is no longer there. Has anyone successfully used it with Tiger?
