Update Your Netbook Hackintosh From 10.6.1 to 10.6.2


Like you know Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.2 update breaks the support for Intel atom processor based net books. And we was waiting for a proper modded kernel for running the Snow Leopard 10.6.2 on net books. Russian programmer teateam has managed to create a kernel patch for Mac OS X 10.6.2 based on kernel 10.2.0, that allow the OS to be installed on netbook PCs running on Intel Atom CPU. Here we published the workaround to get 10.6.2 on your mini hackintoshes, before attempting the process read the whole article 2-3 times.

Remove SleepEnabler.kext in existing Mac OS X if it’s been used, as new kernel version 10.6.2 will cause kernel panic when install over old version of SleepEnabler.kext. You can also install a 10.6.2 modified SleepEnabler here. SE kext allows sleep functionality while AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement is disabled.

How to install Modified Kernel

  1. Download the patched kernel [x32] mach_kernel_10.2.0_patched.zip
  2. Open Terminal.app.
  3. Enter the following command, then type in the root password when prompted:

    sudo -s

  4. Run the following commands one by one:

    cd /
    mv mach_kernel mach_kernel_1062
    cp ~/Desktop/mach_kernel /
    chown 0:0 mach_kernel

  5. Reboot the system.

For those of you who have already updated, and don’t have a working system do the following

  • Boot from the medium you used to install the OS (USB Stick).
  • Open up a terminal

cp /Volumes/InternalDrive/mach_kernel /Volumes/InternalDrive/mach_kernel_10_6_2
cp /mach_kernel /Volumes/InternalDrive/

    One question: my atom is SL 10.6.1. For this upgrade, it seems me that i should do this procedure (1-5) before installing the update to 10.6.2, right? Thanks.

    Will this work to install 10.6.2 on a netbook from scratch, or must it already be running 10.6.1?
