I would sorely like to vote for the new(ish) JaS release. It's fast and it works. The lack of definition with the patches (and there are a LOT of them optional for you) can make installing it a nightmare for a new user. Heck, it made ME have to stop and think a few times.


Zephyroth works remarkably well, also has a decently fast boot and install time and, as a general sort of thing, seems to work versatilely just about everywhere I've tried it so far (always refering to HW that was supported, of course).

Leo4Allv2 won out, however. It's about as fast as Zephyroth, and requires less post installation patching.

iAtkos, as of yet, I haven't tried. Kalyway was significantly slower for me, both in booting and in installation times.

So I voted for Leo4Allv2. Though I maintain that with a bit of spit and polish, I'd be voting for JaS hands down, no questions asked.

To honor eddie11c's new release (v3), I have updated the existing option of v2 to v3. Those that have already tried it, how do you like the new release?

i have both Zephy's 10.5.2 Rev. 2 and the first Leo4All. My network card worked out of the box with Leo4All, so prefer this one, but Zephy's 10.5.2 Rev.2 seems to intall faster than Leo4All V.1, currently downlaoding Leo4All V.3, seems like my system will work out of the box with this relase. I will install Leo4All V.3 in two days and i'll post my comments on that.

I only tried Leo4All v2 and v3 for my first Hackintosh so can't tell much about other releases. But Leo4All v3 is awesome! My vote goes for it.

I've voted for Leo4all v3 - because it works like a charme. before I've used zephyroth leo X 5.2, it was a bit unstable sometimes and then I borked it the same day when v3 was released.

with v3 all previous problems are away - a very stable amd64 single core hackmac with full qe/ci used for music with logic studio - evaluating the mac platform ;) and it's great!

thanks to all mac-hackers and this wonderful community, you made a dream come true for me!

I've been running Kalyway for the past 3 days non stop and it runs smoother than Leo4all v3. I don't know what it was but Leo4all had problems with my HDD.

I use Kalyway becuase I've never had a problem with it since I'd installed it few months ago.
I was having too many problems with iATKOS before I even installed it so i tried Kalyway and it installed without a problem
