Hello fellow insaners,
I'm calling a task force to gather as much information as we can about Mavericks so we can hit the ground running.
On the XNU Front: I am not holding my breadth anytime soon for a source release, but I would be surprised to see none at all get released eventually. People still need to build kexts for this shiny "new" OS, so there's actually a legitimate reason for needing XNU sources. Once we get that, it's on!
Failing this, binary patching will be the way to go. Nawcom already provided us with proof that this is viable. I'm sort of expecting us to need a lot more binary patching in the 10.9 days to come.
There's been a trend i've been noticing, and the kernel itself is going the way of the Dodo. Everything nowadays is done in proprietary kexts, with no source code given whatsoever. This can only get worse now :-(
--- Investigate KEXT signature enforcement, protections. Find a way to caveman beat this down in sources. Binary patch if needed for now, our Intel friends here on the forum will need that, as well as a lot of other folks on the net.
--- Bootloader work needed?
-- Check the following: dyld, libsystem dylibs. Do they have SSE3 routines for memcpy, bcopy and friends? IF NOT, dust off the opemu!!!
-- check this thread, update etc
Sinetek, who wishes you a good summer from Hot Sunny Budapest!!
