preperations:

1. download tubgirl amd 10.4.9 update package
2. download amd 10.4.9 kernel from #1049
3. download r3d3.kext from #1049
4. download official 10.4.9 osx update and extract system.kext


right click package -> show contents->contents->copy archive.pax.gz to a directory or ur desktop and extract it

make directory -> /1048bk
make directory -> /1048bk/kexts

extract r3d3.kext to desktop and place it in /1048bk/kexts

place system.kext from 10.4.9 intel update in /1048bk/jkexts

backup 10.4.8 extensions and kernel

terminal:
cd /1048bk
sudo cp -R * /System/Library/Extensions /System/Library/Extensions.1048

copy the following kexts to /1048bk/kexts

AppleACPIPlatform.kext
AppleAPIC.kext
r3d3.kext
AppleSMBIOS.kext
System.kext (10.4.9)

sudo cp -R * /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext /1048bk/kexts
sudo cp -R * /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAPIC.kext /1048bk/kexts
sudo cp -R * /System/Library/Extensions/AppleSMBIOS.kext /1048bk/kexts
sudo chown -R root:wheel /1048bk/kexts
sudo chmod -R 755  /1048bk/kexts
sudo cp /mach_kernel ./mach_kernel.48

install amd tubgirl package

DONT RESTART

extract 10.4.9 amd kernel to desktop and restore critical kexts

sudo cp ~/desktop/mach_kernel.x2 /
sudo chown root:wheel /mach_kernel.x2
sudo chmod 644 /mach_kernel.x2
sudo mv /mach_kernel /mach_kernel.old
sudo cp /mach_kernel.x2 /mach_kernel
copy /1048bk/kexts to /System/Library/Extensions
sudo cp -R /1048/bk/kexts/* /System/Library/Extensions

extract amd loginwindow to desktop

terminal:
cd /System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/MacOS/
sudo cp ~/desktop/loginwindow.amd ./
sudo chown 0:0 loginwindow.amd
sudo chmod 644 loginwindow.amd
cp loginwindow loginwindow.48
cp loginwindow.amd loginwindow

fix permissions

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions
sudo diskutil repairpermissions /

RESTART!!!

if you get an diskarb error on boot:

reboot with -s
mount -uw /
rm /etc/rc.installer_cleanup

restart

if everything works delete /1048bk directory

this is how i got 10.4.9 on my system

asus A8N-SLI-DELUXE
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
2x1gb DDR400 ram
wd 120gb ide 7200rpm hd
ATI x1900xt 512mb

anyways thats how i got my system up and running with 10.4.9

edit:

after trying some of the different kernels, i noticed that the AMD/SSE3/x2/1CoreUse 10.4.9 kernel is in fact dual core.

Hey xevean, thanks for keeping us AMD users updated with this info. I really hope we get an official release package sometime soon, but this looks like a good option for now. My system is pretty similar to yours - I have the A8N-SLI Premium with a 3800+ cpu. My video card is an entirely different story, but hopefully that wont make a difference [*crosses fingers*]. Anyway, I just ordered a new hard drive to do a complete system backup (in case something goes horribly wrong - can't be too safe!)...so I wont be able to test out this method for myself until next week. Who knows, maybe we'll have an official release package by then so that I wont even have to do this [*crosses fingers again*] ...eh, but probably not :censored2: Anyway, thanks again!

-Agra
