In Topic: Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 is Available!

14 October 2011 - 03:36 PM

Thanx for tipps iOSX86 first post but very informative, for my case unfortunately deadly eternal bootscreen still hangs as nightmare from yesterday after I updated to 10.7.2 fro 7.1, could you explane in more details : could you be more specific on smbios.plist role in my Hackintosh mess ?
Thanx in advance

as I look inside that file it contains that:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...yList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>Apple Inc.</string>

I actually meant SMproductname. Your seems like it is already set to MacPro3,1. Then it could be something else on your smbios.plist. Have you tried download the Chameleon Wizard to generate the smbios.list?

I followed this instruction as on the youtube video to get the recovery partition.

This is my first post on insanelymac.com though I have receiving lots of tips and instructions for the last two years with my beloved hackintosh.

I have been meddling with 10.7.2 for the last two days and happy to say that everything is functional now (as far as I know). I am sharing some of my methods with you all, hoping that you might help with your problems. Note that your mileage may vary (as I myself still trying to figure out why it is working again).

1. AppleControlPolicy.kext
I started with KP during the installation at 10.7.2. To fix this, I removed AppleControlPolicy.kext inside AppleGraphicsControl.kext and reboot with -v -f.

However, I realized that it may probably due to smbios.plist settings. I'm guessing that AppleControlPolicy.kext is checking against my serial and bios version which is randomly assigned by Kakewalk (my original setup).

What I did is to download Chameleon Wizard and generate a "valid" smbios.plist and put back the AppleControlPolicy.kext and it seems working now :)

2. AppleTyMCEDriver.kext
Those seeing KP on the above-mentioned. I got it too when I had changed the SMproductname on smbios.plist to "MacPro5,1" from "MacPro3,1". When I switched it back, it seems working again.

3. "This Apple ID is valid but is not an iCloud account."
This is a PITA, which now I still can't figure out how I get it to work. My luck :).

I read from the forum that I will need the latest Chameleon or Chimera. So I installed the latest Chameleon (with iCloud/FaceTime fix) I think the version is r16xx. Rebooted but still cannot sign in. :(

Then I tried installed Chimera 1.5.4 and it made it worse.. Now I got a "Waiting for root device" error in verbose.

Fortunately, I made a backup of Chameleon boot loader and restore it. And Wala, this time after I reboot, I am automatically log into iCloud. No idea why but I am happy person. Probably it is due to some caching of old boot loader.

Here's my set up:

Kakewalk 4.1 + ComboUpdate 10.7.2
Chameleon r16xx (just search kexts.com for the latest iCloud/FaceTime fix)

A good news: the sound which is broken in 10.7.1 is now fixed without having to do the audio rollback using #####.

Forgot to mention that I also change the Network Settings to fix the iCloud error (as from what I read from tonymacosx forum). It doesn't fix the problem right away, but it may a combination of chameleon boot loader and this to make it work. No harm trying.

First go to Library > Preferences > SystemConfiguration
Delete the networkinterfaces.plist (don't worry, it auto replaces itself when you reboot). Add this line to your boot.plist:


that would be /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist (at least if you're running Chimera 1.5.4)


- Remove all network devices from System Preferences/Network.
- Delete deleting library>preferences>system configuration> NetworkInterfaces.plist file.

* Finally, Reboot.

After reboot, go to System Preferences/Network add add devices. Click (Ethernet) FIRST!! Then add the other adapters you use to connect to the internet.
