I just installed the latest Maverick version using the initial guide even though it was geared towards 10.8 and it went surprisingly well. I used Pandora to create a 10.9 install USB, added the patches and kext from the USB.zip, etc
I assume that in step 4 the green kexts are mandatory, orange optional, and red no longer necessary (as they were part of the USB.zip)
However there are few things that didn't work out for me:
- can't install the Realtek kext from the Realtek website, so I have no networking at all (I didn't replace the WiFi yet)
- the Clover bootloader only shows a black screen, also when a second monitor is attached
- Maverick nags about IOUSB....kext not being correct
Anybody any suggestions of getting the Realtek card working? I'm sort of a newby with this, used iATKOS couple of years ago on a prev Mac, but that is it.
