Update Hackintosh (OSX86) from 10.5.6 to 10.5.7


Updating the Hack-i-ntosh is a very panic process for newbies so it is advised to make the backup of existing system before updating.If this is the first time you are updating your hackintosh then read this guide twice before get started. This guide is for Non vanila or hacked kernel & INTEL based system only. Vanilla users just update and restart. You can also use this guide for updating 10.5.X to 10.5.7 with Combo Update remember you must have patched your DSDT. If you are upgrading from 10.5.6 then download Delta Update. Updating Process is same as usual like you updated from previous one. You can download Delta update (442MB) and Combo update (729MB). Before starting the process download & install osx86tools from PCWIZ.

Update : Single Click Upgrade KIT for 10.5.7 

As Netkas stated : To update, you can you old manual given below or use a quick one make sure you have dsmos/appledecrypt and appleintelcpupm disabler kexts installed to /Extra These Kext are generally available in /Extra  if not then download from here.

  • Download AppleDecrypt.kext  Click HERE.
  • Download IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext  Click HERE.
  • Edit : AppleIntelCPUPM Disabler.kexts will be in /Extra


                              We recommend to use this procedure it’s a bit long but trustworthy :


              First of All follow this guide:  How to Back up & Restore Your Kexts Before OSX86 Upgrades.


First Phase : 

Open the terminal & perform following command’s without quotes.

”sudo –s”

*type password*

”while sleep 1;”

”do rm –rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext;done”

Open 10.5.7 Update Installer.


Go back to your terminal and press Control C to end the script.

In terminal type:

”nano /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1”

Replace the line Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext with dsmos.kext if any exists.

Don’t restart.

Second Phase :

Open osx86tools  >>> Check repair permissions >>> Set kext permissions >>> Clear extensions cache >>> Restart.

Boot using -v to see if any errors.

    Installed on a Dell Inspiron 1300 (B130) with a few probs.
    Originally had 10.5.6 iPC PPF5 for the GMA915 card in it, that worked perfectly. I installed the update, got a blue screen on the boot. Had to start it on the OSx86 DVD to access the terminal and replace the kernel with Voodoo 9.5.0.
    Everything is working on this lappy, thankfully. (Audio, Wifi, VGA, Sleep)

    Thanks guys!

    I installed the 10.5.7 combo upgrade, and it seemed to go off without a hitch. However, I can no longer scroll or drag windows without it messing up the window contents. If I drag, it appears that the window itself moves, but the contents do not move with it. If I scroll a window (Safari, for example), the contents don’t scroll. If I resize or minimize/restore the window, the contents show correctly. However, those are the only two methods that I have found that fix the contents.

    This happens with ALL windows – Finder file lists, websites in Safari, etc.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

    Ran this and am getting the infinite reboot. CRAP! I knew this would happen…

    Dealing with iPC 10.5.6 using the Voodoo kernel. Tried everything possible. Can’t boot using -x -s -v anything! Started up with the iPC disk and repaired permissions (again) but to no avail. Tried booting with kernel=Voodoo to no avail.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    My experience with following this guide…

    Dell XPS 410
    Chameleon 2.0 RC4
    User experience: n00b

    – Downloaded the first 2 kexts (with links)
    – Installed those kexts using OSx86 Tools
    – Restarted
    – Backed up Extensions using OSx86 Tools
    – Ran the Terminal commands
    – Installed 10.5.7 Update (delta update, I believe)
    – Once complete, CTRL+C on the “rm” command
    – Looked in the …./scripts/1 folder, no “Do Not Steal” entry
    – Tried to run OSx86 Tools to repair before reboot, but it would not start
    – Rebooted
    – System rebooted itself in the middle of the reboot (it took little longer to boot)
    – On the 2nd reboot the system came up ok (still took longer)

    Now I’m going to repair stuff via OSx86, back up my Extensions again and reboot again to make sure everything works.

    Don’t know how to run osx86tools. but restarted without running osx86tools.(but did every step mentioned above)
    booted fine after update but my mouse is not working (ps2). may be something to do with osx86tools. (don’t know whether keybord is working or not pressed every key in the keybord but no response)

    WHen I get to this step:

    It says file not found and keeps running it over and over. I checked for the file and I do see the file.

    Hi all! I need help with a “graphic and hang” problem after updating from 10.5.6 to 10.5.7.

    My system is an amd64 4000+ (sse3 capable), 2gb ram, geforce 6600gt 128mb and sataII seagate 500gb.

    I have three OS X partitions on my pc. One was updated from 10.5.4 (Leo4all v4.1) to 10.5.7 using the updates directly from apple software update and replacing the kernel with a voodoo version.

    The second partition was updated from 10.5.6 (ipc universal ppf5 final) to 10.5.7 using ideneb combo upgrade.

    The last partition was updated from 10.5.6 (ipc universal ppf5 final) to 10.5.7 using the original apple update (via apple software update without modifications) and replacing the kernel with a voodoo version.

    The 3 partitions are using an efi graphic string and all worked perfect at 10.5.6. When I updated the three to 10.5.7 using the methods mentioned above, the graphics problem began. I mean, when I open preview, (the best way to reproduce the error fast in my tests) and make some window movements with images or pdf files, the mouse cursor freezes with all the screen and after 5 seconds, the mouse begins to move again but the screen remains freezed until I make a restart. The interesting part, is that only happens with video because I continue having sound and activity on my system. Is the video the only part being affected.

    Hi all,

    here’s my kombat recipe to get the 10.5.7 update working properly on an AMD Turion ML 32 (HP Pavilion DV8000).

    – Got the Ideneb 10.5.7 Update Pkg somewhere google will reveal
    – Launched the Install and restarted at final. Had to hard reset, anyway, cause the restart freezed.
    – At boot I typed “voodoo” before Darwin loading (pressed F8 if no boot config file is set).
    – To avoid Kernel Panic while mounting DMGs, I replaced the new seatbelt.kext with one compatible with voodoo 9.5.0. I took advantage of Lanceomni kindness (Supermod at Infinite Mac) that provided the seatbelt.kext here http://www.infinitemac.com/f5/updated-dmg-mounting-issues-seatbelt-kext-new-versions-t1992/.

    That’s it.

    I’m happily installing the Safari 4.0 beta, now.

    If some other Pavilion owners ended up with a working trackpad (tap-to-click function) or there’s a 0-day news on the ATI x200 (200M) Quartz Extreme issue on osx86, a dropped line here is warmly welcome.

    hi there,

    updated my vostro 1510 and lost sound and wifi, Plasmaburn, can you tell me about how to fix the Dell 1395 issue?


  17. ebuychance May 26, 2009 Reply

    ok for someone else that has a optiplex 280 here are the required kexts (If you open up one of the hacked install discs you will find the custom kexts.) for your machine:

    • chameleon 1.0.12 – 2.0RC1 doesn’t dual boot easily yet…
    • a disabler kext
    • openHaltRestart.kext – to fix restart/shutdown issues.
    • AC97 codecs – for sound (does not show up in profiler, but works)
    • LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA.kext – PATA drivers
    • AppleSMBIOSEFI.kext – to fix the system profiler (chameleon EFI required)
    • 9.4.0 (10.5.4) patched Modbin kernel (SSE3 support)
    • seatbelt.kext 10.5.5 – fix mounting of DMG’s

    (your seatbelt version needs to match the kernel version and this works for the modbin kernel fine)

    I use UIinstaller to add chameleon and EFI string for the video card.
    I use OSX86tools to autoset CPU info and set ram to defaults and enable the Quartz GL.

    I use the preview => tools => adjust color to change the color of the about this mac logo and the login logo too.

    The login logo can be found here:

    Look inside the system folder for the OSX86 kexts folder of your favorite distro for these kexts. Or download them elsewhere.

    Cheers and good luck.

    I finally did it, but with at least one gotcha. Trying to open up .dmg files causes a kernel panic, so I believe the thing that stops the kernel panic for that is the seatbelt fix. I’m not sure how to re-install the seatbelt fix, so if anyone is able to share some insight, I would be very appreciative!

    Anyway, as far as getting the upgrade to work, I used the iDeneb 10.5.7 upgrade kit. I tried it once before and then just restarted when it said it was done. This time I opened the other installer in the package, I’m forgetting what it’s called right now, and seeing as I can’t open dmg files anymore, I can’t get back into it to tell you. What I can tell you is that it’s an mkpg file that allows you to re-install your kernel and a few other things. The instructions say to install it after you do the upgrade and reboot, but that was my problem the first time I tried the kit. So this time I ran that file and applied a bunch of things and rebooted. I wasn’t able to get in at first. It would just go into a reboot cycle until I used -x -v.
    I was able to get into safe mode. Now, before I did all of this, I made sure I backed up all of my extension in /System/Library/Extensions. I just copied them all back and when I restarted, I was able to get into OS X normally. But I need to re-apply that seatbelt fix so I can open dmg files again! Email me if you have questions, if I can answer them I will do so! (I am still a newb though)

    Hope this helps!

    Hi guys,
    I have the successfully installed the Retail Mac OS X using the boot 132 hack.

    Now i am trying to update using the software update utility.
    Can someone tell me how long does it take for the update.

    Once the start the install for the update it takes forever and i don’t even get any update progress. That rainbow wheel keeps spinning and nothing changes.

    I had to kill the update process from the terminal. I tried updating the Quicktime, iTunes and Java resulting in the same endless spinning wheel with no progress for hours.

    Am i missing something here. I am able to connect to the internet. In fact writing this post from the retail installed Mac OS. Also does the 10.5.7 has kexts for the ATI HD 4350?

    please advice.. help. My system is

    Mobo: Asus P5W DH Deluxe
    CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600
    RAM: 8GB 800MHz
    Video: Gigabyte HD 4350

    I had a fresh install of iPC 10.5.6 with DSDT patch on 945GC Chipset, Intel Pentium and Nvidia 9400. I followed the exact steps but couldn’t run the second phase – OSX86 tools gave security exception. BTW, I found that sudo -s didn’t work after 10.5.7 was done.

    -v reboot scrolls text for few seconds and then I see ‘Starting Darwin’ and then it goes blank.

    Success! I had to re-install the modbin kernel….
    I didn’t realize the update replaced my kernel, so makes sense now.

    For those of you with non 64EMT prescott P4’s (use cpuid in windows or match physical numbers on CPU. note: a prescott has a 1MB L2 cache where as a northwood is 512kb – not conclusive but good indicator.) this worked for me:


    Download the delta update (starting from 10.5.6) and remove package from .dmg wrapper (in case you have seatbelt issues mounting the dmg on another machine..) save the package to your media of choice so you don’t have to download it again. Round up all your custom kexts for audio, graphics, LAN – whatever you had to fix originally.

    1. follow above guide, but then re-install modbin kernel after the install but before OSXtools (or just use the tools to re-install kernel). I used the modbin package to re-install…

    2. Thats it simple. fix all custom hardware with kexts and all should be good.

    Optiplex 280GX w/ 2.8 P4 Prescott 1MB/800
    915 chipset…

    Ok I have no problems updating a vanilla kernel.

    But I have an old optiplex 280gx with a Prescott P4 (1MB L2 / 800 FSB) running the modbin 10.5.4 kernel. I get a reboot after a quick flash of the apple loading page. I get the same thing with verbose mode, I have tried -v -f and -x – same thing. I am thinking this is a video failure maybe. I do not have any injectors with a fresh install of 10.5.6 and same thing.

    I am not aware of any kernel dependencies that could be causing this, so if anyone knows… I noticed a lot of USB driver changes, that might be it too.

    some semi – noob questions:

    Also the way I understand it, I have to use the modbin kernel because the vanilla will not work with p4’s? Is this correct, does Leopard require a core solo / duo for a vanilla install? The Prescott P4 has SSE3 extensions but is just 32bit, so I think Leopard expects the 64bit instruction set? Does this sound right as I am guessing?

    Well, got it back up and running again, and did some more research and found that the iDeneb guys created an upgrade kit to move to 10.5.7.

    It’s supposed to make the transition super easy. Just open the dmg file and double click on the install, soooo, I downloaded the alomst 800MB file and prepared for another borking of my system. And yes it did just that. Other people have been getting good results, but I’m not one of them! I’m wondering if it’s because I have a Pentium 4 CPU and not a Core 2 Duo.

    Anyway, the upgrade kit can be found here: http://ihackintosh.org/

    You’ll have to sign up for an account to be able to download from them, and the main site is in Italian, so break out a good language translator if you don’t know what info they are asking for.
    Or just do a search for it on demonoid.com, they have it.

    NOTE: Still hoping more people will give us ALOT more help with he above upgrade method!

    Thanks everyone!

    Agreed!, where is this AppleIntelCPUPM Disabler.kext ??

    Would anyone have a link to that kext? I just have the two linked from the article.

    I also don’t have dmsos.kext, is that needed? (that “Don’t Steal” line was also not in my /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1 file)

    I’m going from iPC 10.5.6, upgrading with delta. Like Krasimir, my OSx86Tools would not start until I rebooted, but only to a blank screen, can’t get in with -x or -s, won’t even boot partition from CD.. 🙁

    off to reinstall (sigh) again, so close… any help is appreciated!

    Well, I tried it again using the above tutorial and again I have borked my hackintosh install! I still couldn’t find the AppleIntelCPUPM Disabler.kext, so I’m pretty sure that is a must now.

    Please, can someone provide that file for me, cause it’s not just IN /Extra like the author of this tutorial says.

    Another strange thing is that when I type “nano /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1” (without quotes of course) and look for “Don’t Steal Mac OS X.kext”, it doesn’t exist in that file, so I have nothing to change.

    Krasimir, could you give us all alot more info from your successful install? And when I say alot, I mean EVERY detail!!!
    Was AppleIntelCPUPM Disabler.kext where the author says it is supposed be? (If so can you please package it up and send it to me at hackosx86@gmail.com)
    Was “Don’t Steal Mac OS X.kext” in the /1 file?

    I installed iDeneb 10.5.6, tried upgrading but I messed up my install.
    The AppleIntelCPUPM Disabler.kext was not located in the \Extra folder or anywhere for that matter. In fact, before I installed chameleon 2.0RC1, I didn’t even have a \Extra folder.
    I copied the other two files into the \Extra folder, so I’m not sure if that’s the proper way to do things or not.

    So I guess I need to know where I can find the AppleIntelCPUPM Disabler.kext, because it sounds like it’s a rather important file to have. Can anyone tell me where to find or download said file?

    Thanks Guys!

    I installed iDeneb 1.4 on my system, but the /Extra folder does not exist. I installed Chameleon 2.0 RC1 just a few minutes ago and all of a sudden that folder is now there, but AppleIntelCPUPM Disabler.kext is nowhere to be found. Where can I get this file?
    The last time I tried the update, it borked my system real good! Had to to reinstall. Now I’m ready for another go, but I’m guessing that file is rather important to the success of the update. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hey, just like to say I updated my MacBook Pro (aka Acer Extensa 4620Z :D) without any trouble by following this guide. After reboot, I only had to deal with two of my perennial install/update issues (Airport and sound). I solved those issues by spending 2 minutes with the OSx86Tools, reinstalling a couple kexts.

    Great guide!

    Oh, I’d also like to confirm these “rumours” of the mythical 30% battery life increase as true. (At least on my machine!)

    @Minyie Diaz: I followed the current how-to. Nothing more. I installed the two kexts, restarted (maybe this was not mentioned?), updated exactly as written above, then could not run osx86 to repair permissions (after install but before reboot, was not willing to start), but that turns out to be no issue at all. Anyway, after reboot I fixed all mentioned permissions, just in case.

Even though there is a blue screen it seems as though i can still log on which i tried and it did let me log on but i blindly typed in my password and it works but the blue screen is still there and i dont see the desktop at all. are there any steps that i can take to fix this.
