I like the idea! However I burned an DVD for a PowerBook G4 and I only see the regular disc icon.
What's your device model? (based on other sources your patch looks correct. Maybe my firmware is too old for this feature)

I have tested this on a Mac Mini from 2005 (don't know the exact model). I was booting off a USB stick and later installed this file onto the harddisk.
