So nice updates, but as Hackintosh users we do have to tap dance a little some updates require more dexterity than others, Luckily enough this is not one of them almost completely Seamless.
So on with the how to.
If you saw the update because Apple’s software update app just appeared out of nowhere and having had already downloaded (download updates automatically but notify to install option in the pref pane) then you don’t really need to spend the time or bandwidth downloading the Combo or delta update pkg, Don’t click install yet because you’d be better off running the updates standalone installer. If not Here are links to the insatllers:
- http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1458 (Client)
- http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1458 (Combo)
In preparation we are first going to back up extensions and other essentials and most importantly if you have sleepenabler.kext installed DELETE IT NOW better safe than sorry.
So open a finder window and use the Go to folder shortcut “Command G” and type “/System/Library/” and copy the extensions folder to the desktop after deleting sleepenabler.kext from said folder. if necessary backup other essentials such as the proprietary replacements for system installed files like a modded trackpad.prefpane etc.
Since ##### does not have a 10.7.2 version of it’s post installer pkg we will be working with the ones backed up from the extensions folder and if it would help from a easy access point of view also copy the kexts that will definitely be reinstalled to a separate folder on the desktop (I did this),
I copied the update installer from “/Library/Updates/” and the pkg will be in one of those folders.

Now run the installer and once it is installed DO NOT RESTART, instead use force quit to exit the installer if you don’t want it in the way. So installers done what now? well now we open either the copied extensions and/or needed extensions folders, for those who have that battery problem and having already fixed it, you will definitely want to reinstall the appleacpiplatform.kext that was used in the solution and VoodooHDA users will want to remove the Apple audio drivers or for those using modified copies of apple audio kexts reinstall using the backups any kexts that were used to fix a problem which will be replaced by the installers.
So we have installed the update and put back that which was overwritten, you may now reboot (but for stability and other reason you may either want to read on or print out this post).
Ok you rebooted but there were problems? such as instant kernel panic or voodoohda based kernel panic, Easy Just boot with these boot flags “-v -f” that will fix that. Infact you may want to add it to your chameleon boot configuration using either:
- Lizard: http://darwinx86.net...6_software.html
- Chameleon Preference Pane: http://forge.voodoop...Pane/bin/OSX106
(any other boot up or other problems considering installation process comment)
Happy so far? won’t be very soon. You will inevitably attempt to use iCloud this is where depending on your temper and patience capability you may become pissed, but there is a simple solution
A boot loader update
And a Network configuration reset
The boot loader is the new Chameleon Revision 2.1 from Kexts.com with the iCloud and Facetime fix over here: http://www.kexts.com...on_2.1_r1627vs_[icloud__facetime_fix].html
so one you have downloaded that mount the image and run the installer Don’t reboot. Now using the go to keyboard shortcut I mentioned earlier (Command+G) type “/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/”
And delete the following files
