The full package included, as usual.
I've also added support for VIA (Nano) cpu's (the cpuid of those can be modified by a few rdmsr/wrmsr instructions).
Furthermore I included the new SSE3 emulator as default (thanks for the person who supplied it, I forgot his name, credits go to him).
It also includes the custom dyld.
BTW: Sorry for the late entry but at work my workstation wouldn't allow rapidshare so I had to bring along my netbook (to link it to the corporate WLAN network, then it worked).

Download including sources:

is the FSB Detection corrected for K10 on this kernel related to this issue http://forge.voodoop...ssues/92/#ic826

Comment 14 by AkimoA, Jul 20, 2011

In Addition asoon the FSB gets detected Correct sound is messed up !
(like lags)

Comment 15 by meklort, Jul 20, 2011

Andy, that's because the legacy kernel multiplies the FSB by two for
K10s. It was a hack added to work around the bug in chameleon. Now
that it's fixed, it should be removed from xnu.


let me know and Thanks for you efforts

thx andy....i've updated my old box...found an old Prescott P4.with the sse3 instruction set...stuck that in... and grabbed a radeon 4670 agp gfx card on the cheap...keep up the good works! :(

PS: i think the sse3 emulator was from slice...not sure of origin...

use a different bootloader, e.g. Meklorts. The one that worked for me against restart issues is attached.

Andy, what's the improvement(s) from your APICFix teateam Atom kernel to this Atom one here?

AnV please create pkg file in future for easy install.

No one needs this installer tony-{censored}-like :).

Just rename the Kernel to whatever you want, copy it to your HD & add its name to your com.apple.Boot.plist + use latest SleepEnabler by nawcom that doesn't depend on correct pm_Version & you'll be fine. :angel:

When using installer you won't be able to solve any problem by yourself as you can't handle the changes.

and what the diference Between Nawcom legacy kernel and this?

Read the first post. :)
This Kernel features a fully working SSE3 Emulation layer & auto CPUID-patching dyld including support for VIA Nano CPUs.

@AnV - Any news about Lion Kernel Patch? ;)

Instant reboot.

- try different boot loader
- remove CPUPower kext form S/L/E (rather than disabler)

Feel free to use this (AnV's kernel) instead - you actually should due to all of the improvements in the code.
