Hi,
I am trying to create a mountain lion (10.8.3 or 10.8.0) hackintosh USB. These are the steps that I followed :
created 2 partitions : 200mb and rest of the pendrive (15GB)
marked 200mb partition as bootable
formated both as hfs+
dd if=boot0 of=/dev/disk1 bs=440 count=1
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk1s1
mounted 200mb partition and copied boot
mounted 15GB partition
mounted BaseSystem.dmg anc copied its contents into 15GB partition using rsync -Pah
removed System/Installation/Packages
copied Packages from mounted InstallESD.dmg to System/Installation (again using rsync -Pah)
copied mach_kernel from InstallESD.dmg to 15gb partition

I tried using cp -a instead of rsync, but no success.

The chameleon/chimera starts successfully, but would kernel panic just after the installer boot process creates RAM Disks. please see the attached image

I would like to learn to do it manually. I have used utilities like #####, myHack, etc, but want to know how these applications do it. Can you tell me what is wrong and how I can correct it?

PS : Where can I get the source code for Pandora.app ?

Thanks...
After reading http://www.insanelym...ort-tonymacx86/ , I thought OSx86 supported Pandora app because it was OSS. Sorry for the misunderstanding
The major difference I can see from the Olarila post method and the one I used seems to be copying the contents of BaseSystem.dmg. While I was copying the contents after mounting, they recomend restoring the DMG to the destination partition. I will check it out

Thank you for the answers, I was able to create the USB manually. As described in the linked posts, the USB boots properly when BaseSystem.dmg is restored to the drive, instead of rsync ing it like I was doing. Does this mean that BaseSystem.dmg has some non-file data (like boot sector data, etc) that won't get copied to USB when using rsync?
When I tried to extract the BaseSystem.dmg using pk7zip (in Linux), I got a few files in a directory named '[]' with the filenames containing Inode-<somenumber> these files and the directory '[]' are not exactly files that are seen when BaseSystem.dmg is mounted.
