After many days of tinkering with this I've got a 10.8.2 ML installation that:
- Doesn't require a Boot Stick to boot.
And I got the chameleon countdown timer working so it doesn't just sit there by adding the following lines to org.chameleon.boot.plist:
- Internal audio working. Although it does tend to pop a bit. I'll probably buy an USB DAC. Any recommendations?
- Most of the monitoring kexts are working with istats, except CPU temp. At one point I had working CPU temp but I can't figure out what broke it. Once I manage to break something it's a jungle trying to revert the changes with all these different paths for kexts: /E/E, /S/L/E, inside FakeSMC, etc. Especially when a couple of clicks in multi.b can mess everything up so swiftly! Any hints regarding the intel thermal kext? Maybe a method for finding offending kexts?
- I'm running on a 512GB Samsung 830 SSD. Initially I only got around 110/130 MB/s out of it in the Black Magic disk speed test. After tinkering with TRIM and getting the disks to show up as internal instead of external I'm seeing speeds around 200/250. I guess this is more or less the limit of SATA2? Any recommendations for a fast compatible PCIe SATA3 card?
