10.9.2 Mach_Kernel Patched For Intel Haswell Motherboards

By Frank Nitty ( Find their other files )

About This File

This is a patched version of an official vanilla mach_kernel from Mavericks 10.9.2, allowing Haswell motherboards capable of booting without reboot loops or kernel panics.

 

The following perl scripts have been applied to the vanilla mach_kernel for 10.9.2:

#1

perl -pi -e 's|\x74\x6c(\x48\x83\xc7\x28\x90\x8b\x05..\x5e\x00\x85\x47\xdc)\x74\x54(\x8b\x4f\xd8\x45\x85\xc0\x74\x08\x44\x39\xc1\x44\x89\xc1)\x75\x44(\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x57\xf8\x48\x8b\x47\xe8\x48\x85\xc0\x74\x06\x48\xf7\xd0\x48\x21\xc2\x48\x0b\x57\xf0\x49\x89\xd1\x49\xc1\xe9\x20\x89\xd0\x8b\x4f\xd8\x4c\x89\xca)(\x0f\x30\x8b\x4f\xd8\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x17\x48\x83\xc7\x30\xff\xce)\x75\x99(\x5d\xc3)\x90{7}|\x74\x73${1}\x74\x5b${2}\x75\x4b${3}\x66\x81\xf9\xe2\x00\x74\x02${4}\x75\x92${5}|g' mach_kernel

#2

perl -pi -e 's|(\x25\x1c\x00\x00\x00\x48\x8d\x0d..\x5e\x00\x3b\x01)\x74(\x11\x48\x8d\x3d...\x00\x44)|${1}\xeb${2}|g' mach_kernel

#3

perl -pi -e ‘s|\x0f\x30(\x8b\x4f\xd8\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x17\x48\x83\xc7\x30\xff\xce\x75)|\x90\x90${1}|g’ mach_kernel

I take no credit for the creation of the perl scripts used.

 

Patches #1 & #2 have been documented on this blog by the original owner here.

Tested on EVGA Z87 FTW

 

Please let me know if it works well for you so I can confirm the amount of success users are having. Thanks

Are you at least able to boot into 10.9.1? Check out my following guide here for the EVGA Z87 FTW motherboard. Follow along where it starts off "Updating to 10.9.2 on Z87" to ensure you're doing everything right.

The operating system I'm using now and osx maveric niresh, but to start it I have to use clover nn like it at all. 

The clean version of maverick that I have and the first exit, now I put it in download the latest release from the store. 

then the 10.9.2 fixes the issues for this hardware?

I don't support distros omamalent. Like I said earlier follow my guide. It gives you step-by-step instruction for what to do. Good luck.

Do you know that there is a way to compile mach_kernel from opensource apple source? 

I'm not sure what you're asking but I did include a copy of the vanilla version of mach_kernel which is installed under 10.9.2. You have to use ShowHiddenFiles to view it to make any edits

Did you use this mach_kernel to boot into OS X after installing Security Update 2014-002?

Ok, since you said you are using the patched mach_kernel and that you're only able to boot in safe mode, try booting w/ flag: -f npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No

That worked for me when I had this problem, which also means you have a graphics issue. I don't know of any AMD Mac drivers that work w/ 10.9.2 since I only use a NVIDIA GPU. I'd suggest getting a NVIDIA card in order to use the current Web drivers.
