k sweet that makes things alot easier.

**edit

hey by the way, reading through the new post shouldnt step #5 be like the first one to let people who have origional DVD to know to do that before they install, im just sayin, you make them boot up and then tell them "oh yeah if you have origional you have to patch" shouldnt you say that at the start so they dont have to stop, go do it, then come back?

also with the link you gave me, i need to patch that too right?

Something went wrong when I did the reinstall on my other partition, so I decided to figure out whats wrong with the 10.6.2 install. Apparently, the problem was the boot loader Chameleon, are you sure thats the version that worked for you?

I installed the chameleon hack from the empire efi disc (in the post installation folder), the one with the Storm Trooper icon, and I was able to fix radeon with that but no keyboard and touchpad. I had to reboot using empire efi disc again (which btw can only recognize up to 1GB of RAM) just to get the kexts for those and install those using the storm trooper boot (which can recognize the whole 4GB RAM), which I noticed was a lower version of chameleon than the one posted in your link.

Bottomline, I got everything to work under 10.6.2, except for the choppy graphics and audio. The photobooth trick didnt work by the way. And any movie you try to watch is like having 5 FPS, very choppy.

I hope there'd be a newer kext for the radeon. That is the problem right?

Oh yeah, it works! So photo booth is just running in one of my spaces. Thats weird. Is there no other kext for conexant audio?

I've been looking around for a better kext for ati radeonhd 4200. Is the one from dong really the only one out there?

yeah!! kinda weird huh? ahahah but still...our cards are not supported by the Snow Leo OSX, there are no 100% working kext for the conexant audio, and no ATI Radeon 4200 HD kext exist..... Netkas has kexts for other ATI Radeon HD cards, but im not sure those work....jesmic1, if u want to try them out, just google netkas and they should com up!!!

Well Jemisec1 had success with the installation, jasonf said he was 90% done, he had succesfully booted, so that means it works, by the way IM 3LITE, i just modified the guide once again, so read through it!!! sorry, im just trying to make it fail-proof.

You're the best elalan5!

I guess you can still patch with the combo update but yeah, I've had some problems with that.

I also noticed, there is no battery icon?

And when you close the lid, it goes to sleep, but when you open it, the screen is just blank.

Just some observations.

Other than these, and the constantly open photo booth, everything's savvy. This thread rocks

yeah, theres some problems, its not perfect...but the battery icon..... that happens because u installed snow leo while it was connected to the charger...if u install it while it runs on the battery, the icon will show up!!
