In Topic: OS X Yosemite DP's builds!

thank you iaihc.. is that the new Name ? nor more mach_kernel or ?

can not extract with pacifist this "kernel" from the Essentials.pkg... have you a idea ?


Can someone please send me the unpacked file kernel? 
I can not unpack the kernel folder with pacifist, not know why the now 
no longer goes in Yosemite 10.10. 
Thanks in advance for it.


The same problem here. I cannot find mach_kernel in the Yosemite install app. kernel from the other suggested place cannot be extracted. Tried to create install USB without it but the installation would stop complaining that can't find mash_kernel. At the same time I noticed that Yosemite on a genuine iMac does not have mash_kernel nor any hidden file called "kernel" in the root directory. Mavericks has mach_kernel in the root directory!? has something more fundamental changed except from signing kexts?

In Topic: Mavericks 10.9.2 Released to Dev

I cannot boot Hackintosh after installing 10.9.2. Stops somewhere after the message :"VM Swap Subsystem is ON" or after completed IOBluetoothController startup.

Never had a major booting problem on this machine since I put it together more than two years ago.

What I did:

1. Tried upgrade - didn't boot.

2. Restored kexts that appeared to be new in 10.9.2 with the ones from 10.9.1


Repaired the disk and reinstalled Chameleon.
The problem persisted.

3. Formated system drive, did fresh install 10.9.1, and then did upgrade to 10.9.2
No change - doesn't boot.

UPDATE: Problem Solved!

Simple "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" solved all the problems.

Up until this version both GraphicsEnabler Yes or No would work!?

Installed DP 4 - had to apply RTC and TRIM fixes again as they disappeared.

Everything seems to be working fine.


It appears that it is significantly faster startup in DP4 than in any other previous DP version and faster than in ML. By this I mean the time from the moment the Apple sign appears to the moment you are presented with login screen is significantly shorter.


Installed GenericUSBXHCI in DP3 and USB3 is working fine. Sleep is not affected - functional.


p.s. After trying all sorts of tricks I could possibly find regarding enabling Face Time and iMessages, iMessages not working. I managed to get them working in DP1 then it stopped when I installed DP2. I got it working again after I signed off iMessages from my genuine MBP. Later, when I changed network configuration it stopped working again. Since then no success! I reinstalled from scratch and changed serial number using the Champlist application - rejected! Then installed DP3 on MBP using an external USB SSD, moved to Hackintosh installed Chameleon, FakeSMC. Got recovery partition, and all the bells and whistles, including FaceTime working but iMessage rejects every option on this MB  (GA-X58-UD7)!?


Independently tried to install 10.9 on RAID 0 (two SATA 3 SSDs) by copying an existing working disk image to RAID 0, then installing Chameleon on both drives, and pointing Chameleon to RAID ID. No success to pass even boot - OSX "panic attack".

Which bluetooth module are you using? I'm using a soldered macbook bluetooth module and it works instantly.

Where can I find that "soldered macbook bluetooth module" or how can I make it?

I do have MacBook Pro.

Updated DP1 installation using DP2 from the Software Update on Gigabyte GA-X58-UD7 - everything seems to be working fine.

Minor fixes needed: had to reapply AppleRTC fix to solve the BIOS corruption issue and also had to reapply Trim enabling. 


An issue I had with DP1 remains the same: very slow Bluetooth awakening after sleep. Sometimes I have to take out Bluetooth stick and put it back after a sleep to get it working. Otherwise "rotating ball" stays for a long time - blocking any activity. Any help appreciated!
