I think Lion is more slower workflow. Snow Leopard works mutch faster! Is it just me or some one else have this problem to?


There has to be something wrong with your Lion installation as Lion is actually faster than Snow Leopard when comparing brand new clean installations of both. :P The post Chameleon boot up speed of Lion is quite similar to that of Snow Leopard, about 30 seconds to reach desktop, loading from caches of course. In retrospect, Snow Leopard was far more problematic in my system, I could never even dream of installing and much less actually running the Snow Leopard in its beta (DP) stages, months before its official release. In fact, adjusting for the timeline, the Lion appears to be far more viable and stable than the Snow Leopard in its infancy, at least for me. All of that, at least partly, is due to the implementation of DSDT.aml, which wasn't present before Snow Leopard, along with far superior boot loaders, namely Chameleon.

I've noticed that too.... for example drag a window around the desktop seems much smoother in SL that in lion... i don't know if it is only an appearance because benchs are the same or better than in Snow.... only time will tell us... cheers

From my experience LionDev2 not start without the USB stick, and most importantly without DSDT.aml also no longer need to put OSInstall.mpkg edit or delete the platformsupport.plist
Restore only basesystem 8 GB USB stick for installing chameleon and Extra folder (cabp; smbios.plist; Extensions folder: Fakesmc.kext, AD2000B.kext)

the block is posted by buoo above, and you can only avoid booting from USB stick

I would add that even you can upgrade to the next release of software update installed it because it stops at 1 minute from the end.

A SMBIOS model need to change anything, nothing to put in NullCPUPow.kext S / L / E

All this using RC5752 but also by the latest release of the fix PCI... nothing changes.

I am sure it depends also on MacModell usage!
I use iMac11,1 vanilla speedstep (via DSDT) keeps running.
MacPro Modell usage sometimes problematic - also the /System/Library/Extensions/AppleTyMCEDriver.kext is very problematic (KPs, SL+Lion) and is dependend only to MacPro Modells, not iMac modells.
I can so no benefit using MacPro Modell insted of iMac Modell for hackintoshs!

This provides sound on Lion and Snow Leopard for Sigmatel STAC 9228. :P



Got some spare time, so i´ll test, just can´t imagine it will work on AD1988B, yet :)

Btw.: Sleep is NOT working on sys. It SEEMS to go to sleep just normal, kind of wakes up on keypress, but there is no signal on my Display, after cold boot, BIOS is resetted to defaults ... also, all fans run at full speed, so this section of FakeSMC/dsdt doesn´t seem to work yet, need to dig a bit more ...

Replacing both IntelCPUPowerManagement.kext along with IntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext version 156.0.0 from DP2 Update 2 11e444d with the corresponding kexts version 155.0.0 from the preceding DP2 (11a430e) allowed me to successfully boot and run the DP2 11A444d post the 11a430e update.

It is also worth noting that I updated the 11a430e to 11a444d from the Snow Leopard partition via the LionSWUpdate.pkg rather than the automatic Software Update.


still unable to use 11A444d. i did exact steps stated here, but after it comes to desktop it just freezes(only cursor moves, keyboard and clicks are all dead). i'll stay on update 1 until i can figure out what causes this problem.

Anyone with a GTX 460 managed to start the installer?
Can get upto where the gui should start (language select) but it stands on the verbose screen. Still seems to be going in the background, when i press enter hard drive spins up again, but just cant get the gui to come up.

I think the iopci is important for you
maybe boo and giginopechegno you can try to replace the iopci with DP1 or DP3 because in DP3 (open with pacifist) in S/L/E there are 5 newer kext.. one of them is IOPCI.. but I thind it pairs with newer IOGraphicsfamily.. then I think you have to replace both.

in my acer 5930 I cant upgrade with DP3.. tried a lot of replacing.. but it's not only a kext problem.. in fact 1gb compressed PKG.. only 5 kext!
so the DP3 is a macro upgrade .. it also updates Kernel and System.kext!!

another news!!! _> MOUSE AND TRACKPAD
I was frustrated not to see my trackpad running.. and not to have the possibility to use central mouse button to activate spaces!
because Spaces now has not the menu that let assign the mid mouse button to launc it!!!!

THE SOLUTION: I have an older mighty mouse.. attach it. now you can go in the mouse preferences and there's a newer menu (in mouse pref not in space pref) to assign mid button with spaces

THE SOLUTION2: casuality for me.. I put voodooSDHC and Voodoobattery.. magically in Dmesg I saw that Alps synaptic trackpad was loaded.. but.. how is it?!?!?!? really strange.. but .. it is!

so now I can tap with my trackpad.. better than snow!

The IOPCIFamily.kext is dependent upon the Attached File  AppleACPIPlatform.kext.zip   406.84KB   297 downloads

Substituting your existing Lion AppleACPIPlatform.kext in the /System/Library/Extensions directory with the same from your existing Snow Leopard installation should eliminate this particular Kernel Panic. I've gone ahead and included said kext for your convenience. :D

Remove the com.apple.kext.caches located in the System/Library/Caches directory, repair permissions. Also, try booting via the Safe Mode (-x).

sudo rm -rf System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches
