-Yes of course, go for it.
2. Can I upgrade my Intel Macintosh using software update?
-Yes. There have been a few minor problem reports, but you own a real Mac. If you have a problem call tech support.
3. Can I upgrade my Intel Hackintosh using software update?
-Kind of....Kernalzero (and others) have been able to upgrade with software update but then there are several additional steps you need to take. Several package installers are being created, but right now this is all bleeding edge stuff. Don't attempt anything unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing. This is definitely not meant for newbies. See the bottom of this post for several different methods.
4. Can I upgrade my AMD Hackintosh?
-Possibly. Tubgirl has just posted her AMD Test 1 update on TPB. Remember that this is still bleeding edge and that this is a TEST release. I would suggest anyone who tries this be very comfortable with working in Terminal in case it messes something up on your system.
All that being said, let the developers and guru's here work out the kinks. Newb's and casual users should wait until custom installer packages are produced by the usual kernel god's. Above all else, BACKUP YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE YOU UPGRADE!!!
I hope this helps answer a few questions so people are not slamming the developers while they try to create packages for the rest of us.
Now that all that is clear...Here are some current installation methods:
2. Update hackintosh 10.4.8 to 10.4.9 (Intel SSE2/3) - Retains 8.8.1 kernel
3. Using the Loki updater (Intel only - See IRC channel for full details - Torrent on the Green Demon)
4. Installing 10.4.9 on a Thinkpad T43 (thanks to rathalos)
5. Updating to 10.4.9 on an AMD System (thanks to Tubgirl)
I will continue to update this with links to installation guides. Kernel and Developer guru's. If you discover a new method or build a new package and would like it included in this list, please just PM me with a link to the thread discussing your work.*- Regarding the Kernalzero method, please see the below note from Kernalzero regarding credit for his method:
I was actually using paulicat's combo update method that he devised when the 10.4.8 combo was released. I simply used that method for 10.4.9 using prasys kernel script (the kernel was actually hacked by semthex) to update. I hope that clears it up, I just want those who did the work to get the credit ;-) take care pm me with questions
