I would try out XxX too, but my system can't run any kernel higher than 8.8.1 even though its SSE3 because newer kernels are unstable.

My first was Hotiso 10.4.6 and it worked brilliantly - but when trying to upgrade it I utterly killed the installation
Swapped motherboards and installed Jas 10.4.8 and was successfull in updating it to 10.4.10
Recently changed out motherboards again - now on the MSI board and using Kalyway - for me its perfect.
Uphuck could never find my drives, and xxx refused to boot after a full installation.

Kalyway - All the way!

I am using Kalyway and love it. I tried all the other ones but for some reason Kalyway was accepted by my system :P

worked out everything out of the box accept video but that's because its FireGL 7100

I can run updates
Plextor DVD/CD works great burning etc
Ram shows correctly
CPU show slightly faster from 3.4 to 4Ghz ;)
video PNY 7300GT with Titan driver works out of the box no hackcing

I get 134 w/o hd on xbench and 107 with hd

anyway kalyway was the way to go for me

My favourites are JaS and Uphuck and they will continue to be.

JaS is universally compatible, bug free and it works on almost any computer

Uphuck it takes longer to set up and configure but it works very fast once installed.

I used Uphuck 10.4.9, but then used the KoolKal update to 10.4.10. The cool think about the KoolKal update, is it let me install the Apple Security updates. Either way, the installs went smoothly.

My first ISO was JaS 10.4.8 AMD Intel and it worked flawlessly. I've since moved on to the XxX 10.4.10 disc, which has worked quite well and I'm currently aquiring the Kalyway disc to give it a shot this weekend.

We are such geeks. We treat ISOs as girlfriends. "I first started with Jas. We didn't work out, so I moved on to Uphuck. We learned a lot from each other, but didn't have anything in common. Now I'm with Tub Girl, and I think this is THE ONE."

The XxX 10.4.10 XxX breaks OpenGL on my notebook 9700 Radeon Mobility AGP 64Mb (reported as 128Mb) - note this is a fresh install.
OpenGL works great on JaS 10.4.8, 10.4.9 on the SSE2 machine right out of the box.

On XxX 10.4.10 XxX I can get CE and QI supported after using the 10.4.8/10.4.9 files from the extensions folder (including kexts and frameworks). All seems to be working and smooth except for OpenGL, it is broken and emulators and games using hardware acceleration won't work (Power64, Zuma).
Replacing the OpenGL.framework that was installed by 10.4.10 by the 10.4.8/10.4.9 one doesn't change things. This is a shame as the XxX install is about as compatible as JaS: I replaced the AC'97 kext to have sound and I needed to use the 8.9.1 kernel because of the SSE2 cpu. Perhaps the fact that it is an 10.4.9 kernel and a patched system.kext that is causing OpenGL to break. I have yet to find out how it is integrated into the OSX system in order to remedy this.

Have other people with similar Graphics cards experienced broken OpenGL support? Mind you QE and CI seem to be supported in the System Properties and the widgets screen loads smooth with like it actually is.

I use XxX 10.4.10 with PPF1 patch. I install it using no drivers whatsoever and it loads no problem and i then put the sound, net and graphics drivers on after. its a superb system as long as you dont try to do too much with the included software as it just wont work.

JaS 10.4.8 + 10.4.9 update with PPF1+2 was my first and (so far) only image. It works great and everything was detected out of box (from GMA950 to Wireless).. but reading this post, I can't help wonder.. ;)

What if I try another ISO like Uphuck or XxX? Can I go even faster? Or will I just be risking to waste my time on downloading and installing something that couldn't been much better than what I got right now?

My specs:
Core 2 Duo 4400
Intel MoBo with 945GZ chipset (plus GMA950)
1 ghz kingston ram
Belkin wireless

Q: Which version is best for LaptopsAnyway, i'm using Mac OS X 10.4.9 UpHuck v1.4 r2which is running like a #'{!! it's amazing apart from no driver for my realtek ac97 audio! :(Uphuck is good, what about HOTiso & goatsecx or tubgirl

hmm... but uphuck doesn't have rosetta?

Actually it does, i just installed Uphuck 10.4.9 1.4 r2 which says no rossetta but yet i got MS office 2004 running like a charm!

Personally I like macdotnub_OSx86_10.4.10_Install_Disk-v1-r5.iso the best :D

10.4.10 works even on my nForce board thanks to my modded 8.10.1 kernel :pirate2:

i haven't had to reinstall for a long time. but if i had to, i'd use 10.4.4 for partitioning, JaS 10.4.8 for install, then update to 10.4.11 beta from the service packs. not as time consuming as it sounds, as i have a couple installation partitions on my hard drives.

ridiculous as it might me seem, i would never download anything called Uphuck, Goatsecx, or Tubgirl. the names make me want to hurl! ;)
