I'll keep watching and waiting.... I don't need the update *right* now, and I'm sure someone will figure it out for my laptop pretty soon...


What happen if everyone is doing the same thing ...... keep watching and waiting.... :hysterical:
This thread is getting hysterically interesting ...

Maybe this will help someone: I updated to 10.8.2 via combo updater, but couldn't boot past the gray startup screen, because of OemSMBIOS.kext. After replacing AppleACPIPlatform.kext with the old one from a previous post in this (or an other) thread, my system booted without any problems.

Now, as I really don't like having legacy kexts on my system, I tried out various methods to allow me to keep the vanilla 10.8.2 AppleACPIPlatform.kext. The solution was quite easy and had a nice benefit to it. I installed Kozleks branch of FakeSMC + optional Kexts for sensors:


Not only can I now boot with the original 10.8.2 AppleACPIPlatform.kext, without having OemSMBIOS.kext throwing an error, but I also get much more information from my hardware sensors opposed to the original FlakeSMC-Plugins I had been using. Furthermore a serial number is generated for my machine (so no problems with iCloud and Appstore) and VT-d can stay enabled in BIOS!

Using the kexts from Kozlek was a win-win for me - thanks Kozlek!!!

This is great but sadly it did not work out for me :(

Hey i have 2 systems (ga z77x-up5 th) with the same cfg except the cpu. when update to 10.8.2

i3770 = ACPIPlatform.kext roll back required. ( if i disable vt-d in the bios then rollback not necessary)

i3770k = ACPIPlatform.kext rollback not necessary, why ? becos there is no option to enable vt-d in the bios

read somewhere apple only enable vt-d on certain macpro series ....

I can boot in safe boot without problems only with -x, but I can't boot normally. :(

Did you try rolling back AppleACPIPlatform.kext.? Tell me about your system, like cpu, board etc ... see if i can help
BTW boot flag -x -v -f also rebuild extensions cache

For my case with ga-z77x-up5 th
- Need to roll back AppleACPIPlatform.kext (else my vmware fusion will not work if i disable Intel Vt-d in bios).
- If Intel Vt-d is disable then roll back of AppleACPIPlatform.kext is not necessary.(Better fix, anyone ?)
- re-enabler trim support for ssd

- I have "IOUSBFamily did not receive enough extra current for the SuperSpeed device (4-Port USB 3.0 Hub) at 0x14c00000, asked for 400mA but got 0 mA" error message from console. The USB port not charging iPad.

Temporary fixed - roll back to 10.8.1 IOUSBFamily.kext (Better fix, anyone ?)
