Snow Leopard 10.6.2 : Atom Support Breaks


software-update Apple today released Mac OS X 10.6.2 update to address various security, stability and compatibility issues. Netbook Hackint0sh users are advised to stay away from this update, it’s confirmed Snow Leopard 10.6.2 update breaks the Atom support in hackintosh. Wait for the modded kernel and detailed guide. The vanilla hackintoshers are all free from any workaround for updating there rig, though it’s highly suggested to backup your /Extra (just in case), you may need to install Audio/Video/Lan drivers after the reboot.

Hackint0sh User : Take a note of following [VIA]

  1. Remove SleepEnabler.kext because old sleepenabler + new kernel = panic
  2. Use any disabler for AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, for example – NullCPUPM.kext, install it to Extra mkext and reboot, of course if you made AppleIntelCPUPM to speedstep your cpu, you can skip this step.

    Ahh, I messed it up! 🙁

    I probably did something wrong ’cause it’s not booting now. It stops at “APCI_SMC… something something timed out”.

    I tried booting in safe mode, verbose, and with acpi=off, but it still stops at the same location.

    Any ideas as to how to fix this without reinstalling?

      @Nico first of all no thanks, we have a no thanks deal in past 😉 Now you need another Mac/Hack and attach the corrupted hard disk and then do the process again.

    Thanks, Vinay!

    I checked, and I don’t have such folder. I have an “/Extra” folder, but there’s no “Extensions” folder inside it. Should I just create it myself?

    Thanks again!

    How do I install NullCPUPM.kext to “Extra mkext”?

    • Vinay December 9, 2009 Reply

      @nico Place the “NullCPUPowerManagement.kext” into /Snow/Extra/Extensions, and copy the Extensions folder in Extra to the desktop, and drag it over “Kext Utility”. Kext utility will repair your permission and generate a new Extension.mkext. Move that Extensions folder and the extension.mkext back to /Snow/Extra
