If you have problems with your used methods , please ask on the developers platform or the delevelopers themselves. This methods are not supported here.

 

Please read this: http://www.insanelym...ort-tonymacx86/ and this: http://www.insanelym...out-tonymacx86/

 

You can follow this guide: http://www.insanelym...-for-mavericks/ and try to use this tool: http://www.insanelym.../11-pandoraapp/ Try to find with the platform search  a working laptop with similar hardware.

 

Please put your hardware in your signature, like many others have done it here.

 

Have fun.
