    "Simple and effective!"

    November 30, 2010  |   By zunipus

    Version: AirPrint Hacktivator 1.7.1

    Pros

    Easy to install and use. Restores ALL original AirPrint beta capability.

    Cons

    Uncertain legal ramifications.

    Summary

    Why Apple disabled LAN print sharing aspects of AirPrint is uncertain. Somewhat verified is that another developer is contesting Apple right to provide this technology. While we wait and see, we have this terrific little hacking tool.

    AirPrint Hacktivator is simple to install and is entirely effective at restoring ALL the capabilities of AirPrint that were found in the final candidate beta of Mac OS X 10.6.5 Snow Leopard. I have it working via Wi-Fi from my iPod Touch 4, with iOS 4.2.1 with my Mac running Mac OS X 10.6.5 to printers connected to my AirPort Extreme N Base Station.

    It is required that one LAN Mac have each specific printer set up for Printer Sharing and that each printer have a Bonjour capable printer driver. Because AirPrint uses an active Mac as the intermediary, any Bonjour printer USB connected to an AirPort Extreme N Base Station can be accessed. (Presumably same would be true for the AirPort Express Base Station, the Time Capsule as well as printers directly connected to a running Mac). I am able to print to a USB connected Lexmark Z715 using driver version 1.0.5 (found on the Leopard install DVD, not on the Snow Leopard DVD). I am also able to print to a USB connected Epson Stylewriter C84 using the Gutenprint driver version 5.2.3. Epson's own driver is not working due to a Bonjour compatibility problem.

    The printing interface on iOS devices is minimal with only the choice of how many copies to print. The printed results cannot be otherwise optimized; Therefore, what you get is a basic printout. But this is fine for most purposes.

    If you have any setup problems, be doubly sure that you have Printer Sharing set up in the Network Preference Pane AND Print Sharing set up for each printer in the Print & Fax Preference Pane. If one driver fails, try another. Remember that there are Bonjour compatible Gutenprint drivers available on your Mac or installation DVD for most printers.

    A nice feature of AirPrint Hacktivator is the ability to easily turn it off if you wish, restoring your system to its original condition.
