Hello There and i am going to develop Guest Additions for OS X 10.5 , 10.6 , 10.7 and 10.8 also for OSx86

Also i am going to put eveything and something else

 

README:

 

This is unofficial version of Guest Additions for Mac OS X Guest (10.5 and above)

In order to avoid kernel panic or some random errors like "still waiting for root device" or something else , Try to close all applications or something else.

 

By Paolo Landayan

 

Requirements

 

Here are the requirements to install Guest Additions on OS X Guests

 

  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 128 MB of Video RAM and Enable 3D Acceleration is required
  • Sound Card must be AC97 Audio or HDA 
  • For Native Networking support , Try enabling Shared NAT or Bridged Network
  • Intel ICH9 are not supported , Try changing to PIIX chipset
  • To enable Core Image and Quartz Extreme Support , Your VBox Graphics Chip , Enable 3D Acceleration to support both APIs
  • OpenGL Support will be enabled automatically if you install Guest Additions
  •  To enable AGP , tick Enable 3D Acceleration to enable it

NOTE (IMPORTANT TO READ IT):

  • Quartz Extreme and Core Image are Experimental at the moment 
  •  Due to the bugs of this version , It's still in development
  • AGP works , But there' some minor bugs like Graphic Artifacts and Flickering
  • To avoid kernel panic before and after shutdown or restart , Close all open applications and Save your work

Installation:

  1. Download the iso here : [Under Construction]

  5. Click Next to Continue
  6. Accept the EULA
  7. Select components here and Click Next
  8. Wait until the installation is finished
  9. After Installing Reboot your guest VM
  10. Ta-da , Now you can do anything as you want , Enjoy!

                    ICHx.kext

                    PIIX.kext

                    Boot.kext

 

If you are confuse here is something to do

The Kext files are in the KEXTS folder

The App files are in the Bin Folder

And The Documentation files are in the Docs

 

Just Remember: 

  • This is not an official version of VBox Guest Additions
  •   It is not affliated by Oracle or Apple because of the EULA which it becames illegal
  • This is nothing but has many bugs and limitations      

Enjoy

This will break the Apple SLA on non-Apple hardware :(

 

That being said, I have my 10.8.4 boot running directly off existing HDD, only issue is panic after CPU halted on shutdown.

 

You can use "Graphics Mode"="1920x1080x32" to set custom resolutions (add your own SUPPORTED resolution. I run in fullscreen most of the time, so this is perfect for me. Place this info in org.chameleon.boot.plist to make it permanent.

I'm very interested in running OS X on VirtualBox and the last attempt was almost ideal. I've run Mavericks on VirtualBox 4.3.0 without any single one modification in the OS X :)

Two problems are that there was no audio support and very restricted video. The audio support can be achieved using VoodooHDA, but how to fix video...

 

So, I think an extended video support is the most important feature for OSX@VBOX!

 

P.S. Maybe there is some solution already?

Any news? Or at least some feedback that development is dropped/suspended?

Really hope I can use/test this soon - on legit Apple MacBook Pro. (Rosetta Support "on top of" ML/Mav while still having Graphic Acceleration without needing to purchase VMware to use the unofficial open source graphics driver.)

I'm interested in the Guest Additions for Mac OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard in virtual box

 This running in Windows 7 - AMD processor on a Gigabyte 970A-UD3 motherboard....

 

 I've tried the one that comes with the recent version of VirtualBox and it will not install....

  It keeps complaining about finding the correct library path...

 

 where is your version or copy of Guest Additions located ?

 Is it available for download ?

 

any help would be appreciated....
