  1. [How to] Install 10.5.2 Update [TUTORIAL]

    Wow. Lots of posts! Yeah, I have moved on to real Macs. I am selling my Hackintosh now. I love the real mac experience. For a few questions I saw: - I Use vanilla. - PS/2 can be fixed by using USB KB and Mouse. They're nicer anyway. XD - This works for 10.5.3. 10.5.4 is safe to just install via Software Update for INTEL, not AMD.
  2. Ethernet

    Ok, I have this card, the WUSB54G v4. Its seen as Ethernet. I have a 945GCT-M v3. It says Ethernet works OOTB. Now, because the USB card is seen as Ethernet, i don't think my real port works. Is there a way to enable both? I want to share an internet connection with another Mac. (iMac G3 that cannot use AirPort) Thanks!
  3. Apple Time Capsules on sale at Best Buy!

    Maybe he is confused that the're on sale.... Either that o he just bought one and now they are on sale..
  4. Should I buy an iPhone and Crack or not?

    "Cracking" AKA Jailbreaking just adds the ability to add applications to the iPhone, or to make it useable with non AT&T plans. say wait for the App Store to debut to get apps without jailbreaking and voiding warranties and all that stuff. Besides, after I Jailbroke my iPod Touch, it led to problems, so I say stay away from it, In my opinion.
  5. Xbox Live Cam

    Ok guys, I think he gets the point. Back to the thread please? Anyways, yes, that cam will work OOTB. I might borrow one from my friend to se Photo Booth. PS: Sorry Think Mark, I was a little heated up. I know I shouldn't have said all that. This is a bad place to release anger, isn't it?
  6. Xbox Live Cam

    Dude, I don't want to start fights, but seriously? I have seen some of your posts, and they are pretty ignorant. Maybe people want something cheap, something they can buy that is at a store nearby, and that will work. Who CARES it it has Microsoft on it. Heck, The MacBooks in my Apple Store have XP dual-booting on them. Apple Stores are not the only good stores. I hate huge Apple Fanboys. I am not a Microsoft fan either, I actually dont lik them one bit, but I'll buy their cam. Why? It WORKS! I don't wanna pay $100+ to get an APPLE LABELED iSight. NO! I buy that little cam thats in the bargin bin up at Game Stop, and use it. I don't care I like Apple, but if it means I cannot use products that DON'T have an Apple on them, then who wants that? Guess I gotta wait for that Apple Camera. Or the Apple Speakers. I think you need to keep your personal ways of not using Microsoft stuff and using ONLY Apple products or products sold at an Apple Store, to yourself. My 2 cents right there.

  8. [How to] Install 10.5.2 Update [TUTORIAL]

    Hmmm, I think most people here are using Kalyway.I'm honestly not sure if you can do it on iATKOS.Are you using PC_EFI and Vanilla Kernel? You have to in order to get it working. You will need to use a USB keyboard and mouse to restore your AppleACPIPlatform.kext and AppleSMBIOS.kext.Then you will have it back. ** REMEMBER TO REPAIR PERMISSIONS AFTERWARD! ** Or you can use KextHelper. Try the install again, but this time don't copy them back, yet. Re-install them after you reboot, and see if it will work again. Good luck!

  10. [How to] Install 10.5.2 Update [TUTORIAL]

    Thats why I recommend you use this method. Kalys' way is REALLY buggy. Look around the forum, and see if you can find a solution. If not, you might have to backup what you can and re-install.
  11. Want Hackintosh! [Buy] [Hire}

    Can't you just upgrade the processor on Mini? You can. I don't know about a quad core, cut maybe you could.
  12. [How to] Install 10.5.2 Update [TUTORIAL]

    -f or no -f, its a panic either way. Strange, its on google, and there is a lot to do with linux for that. I'm honestly not sure what that means, or how to fix it. Look around the forums.
  13. [How to] Install 10.5.2 Update [TUTORIAL]

    BAD BAD BAD! lol Reinstall, and next time, only copy over needed ones, such as some you had to add to get sound, etc. If you didn't have to add any to get stuff working, don't worry about replacing any kexts.
  14. [How to] Install 10.5.2 Update [TUTORIAL]

    Sorry man Make sure this time to backup all kexts, and to also replace any ABSOLUTELY NEEDED. Say, like me, you added one for graphics and sound, just replace those. You don't need to replace all of them to have the update work. I'll be here if you need any more help. I can also be contacted at my hackintosh email: hackintosh.devin@gmail DOT com - Just make DOT a period. (Prevents bots for getting my email)
