Theconnactic, DSMOS wouldn't arrive, so I added in-kernel decryption.. Now though, nothing

There once was was a user that whined
his existing OS was so blind,
he'd do better to pirate
an OS that ran great
but found his hardware declined.
Please don't steal Mac OS!
Really, that's way uncool.

I have code for custom decryption...
I'll mod my previous patch (which directly loads dsmos)
Yeah... we're getting somewhere...

XPCHelper crashes, and I see launchd is looping on two things: com.apple.system.notification_center, as well as the kextcache daemon which fails (not sure it it matters?)

XPCHelper crashes are an old issue with Lion running on AMD.

The optimal solution would be to get rid of this issue for good, but as long as that isn't happening, there's a terminal workaround which appears to prevent the crashes from ever happening once you get the system to boot. I'll post it later.

How about single user (-s) now...
You could type the fix commands in there...
Just a thought...

Here it is (all credits to jeaton):

1) Wait for xpchelper to crash
2) Open terminal and type these in:
"sudo su"
"cd /private/var/folders"
"find /private/var/folders/ -type f | grep -i com.apple.xpchelper.cache"
3) cd to the first one that shows up on the list (it will be in a separate folder from the other xpchelper caches)
"rm -r com.apple.xpchelper.cache"
"pico com.apple.xpchelper.cache" ---> hit ctrl+o to save and ctrl+x to exit
"chflags uchg com.apple.xpchelper.cache"
4) Reboot and you're done!

Obviously this could be made from Single User mode, but it's important to wait for XPCHelper to crash.

Should do the trick

I am very happy to see that there is even more progress being made. This page and the ML page are my daily "crack". I have faith that history will be made very soon. Please keep up all the hard work!
I am in the process of setting up my partitions to try to help out. I gave up on my poor old sdcard, think it or the reader is wore out.

UPDATE on what's happening

Mountain Lion is booting up on this Phenom II X4 965. The GUI launches and it gets to a gray screen. The mouse is moveable.
Then there is disc activity, and the computer shuts down completely.

The opcode emulator seems to be working, but bugs are not out of the question yet.
