    Maxuss 8F1111 Speed Update

    The link you kindly provide is not working. Also, I have an sse3 machine, will this file simply run at sse3 (ignoring the sse2 patch)? Thanks

    Maxuss 8F1111 Speed Update

    I have about 132 gigs free space on the drive. It's all useable.
  5. When tryingto install the maxuss speed update on my working 8F1111A build i get the following error during 'Select A Destination': You cannot install Mac OS X Update on this volume. this volume does not meet the requirements for this update. Can anyone shed any light on this. I've tried all the versions listed on the maxuss site, each generating the same error. Install was achieved via the Jas ppf patcher method / install dvd. ?
  6. It all sounds great. Would you be willing to post the layered photoshop document to assist the learning process? If it helps you could use the note feature (or just additional lsyers) to anotate your psd file. Either way, looking forward to the tutorial.
  7. here's a noob update for the above and truely excellent patch. 1. Download the Jas patch. hit his link, choose free option on the download page / scroll to base of page and see the 'wait for 25seconds' message. Time may be different but if it's in the minutes just re-open the link. 2. Extract downloaded file with stuffit (Mac) or add .zip extension (PC) 3. Install PPF patcher software and then double click the ppf file (downloaded file not application icon). This will open the application and ask for the mounted/converted iso file. Choose file and hit patch. 4. If you see an error message - 'check privileges' then you need to right click (mac) the iso file and choose 'Get Info' followed by expanding 'ownership' + 'details'. In details check that owner is set to you and 'Group' is set you. Hit patch and your up and running. 5. Once patched, use disk utility to burn the iso file to cd. Once burned, re-boot hit Del on your keyboard and set the bios to boot from CD. On install choose custom and remove all the extra 2.1gig print drivers you won't be needing. Notes on concerting DMG to iso files: http://win2osx.net/wiki/index.php/10-4-3-8...d_8F1111_Status Convert DMG to ISO and mount as read/write in OS X 1. Open the terminal and type sudo -s, then login. 2. Convert the dmg to an iso by typing: hdiutil convert /location/of/file.dmg -format UDTO -o /location/of/file.iso 3. Now we will mount the ISO file as a writeable DVD, so that we can copy over the patches. Do this by typing: hdiutil attach -readwrite /location/of/file.iso 4. Apply the patches and instructions that you find here in the WIKI.
  8. Thanks jfman. Using a mac I opened the file with stuffit and it worked fine from there.
  9. Hi Jas I'm unable to open your file with ppf. After download + install of ppf o matic, i get this message: PPF-O-Matic supports only PFP v1.0, v2.0 and v3.0 patch files. If i rename the file extension with .ppf i get the same thing. I'm running this option on a real mac too. Can you give me any pointers please? Anyone else had this problem?
  10. Hi all, Is it possible to convert little snitch to run? Has anyone managed to do this, or source an alternative program that can run?
  11. Hello all, I'm late in posting this solution, so my detail is not as hot as would otherwise be, here goes: It requires 3 hard disks (i used 2 sata drives and one ide) and a usb hard disk caddy. (i used a sata usb2 caddy). The prior sucessfull install of deadmoo (via what ever method you made it work. I've linked to my fave non techy way here). 1. load deadmoo on a small hard drive, as per the excellent instructions posted on: http://www.osx86.theplaceforitall.com/howto/ However be aware that there is an error located in the code. I can't recall exactly where (sorry) but all it entails is removing a space from the code provided. When I can remember i will post the exact code. If you follow the above guide word for word, watch out for the space issue (it simply won't get past the terminal bit if you don't fix that part) then you will have a 6 gig partioned functioning drive. Here's where my plan takes effect: 2. Now do the same thing again to another hard disk. Follow the prior guide, only this time do not mount the new drive. 3. Get yourself the final (3rd) hard disk that you want the full capacity os install to live on (most likely your biggest / fastest drive). Attach the 2 additional drives to your macbox. Boot into the already configured os x disk (see step 1) then use disk utility to transfer / back up the (step 2'd) second os disk to the final destination disk. (This only works on non active / running) os disks. Repair disk permissions on the 3'rd drive then power down the computer. Remove the other 2 disks, so that alll you have connected as your master disk. is the final - 'transfered to' hard disk. 4. Boot from your new drive to see that it has installed to the full hard disk. (You can partiion to any size above 6 gigis during step 3 if required.) Now follow the http://www.osx86.theplaceforitall.com/howto/ speed up tips on your new system. Note: this method will erase all data on all drives used, but you will have 1 full capacity drive + a back up drive to restore from if you have issues with installing new software (like itunes / quicktime updates). You can also clone out as many 'backups' as required. Hope this helps, it's been a few weeks since i did this, so my memory is a little vague. System spec: asus p5g board (same spec as described in the how to guide) p4 64bit 3.2gig cpu 1 gig ram HP add2 card 200 gig sata drive usb2 sata external hard drive case (check www.microdirect.com - only place i found that sold these). pioneer 110 dvd drive full supports all the gubbins, runs quick with a sub 8 second boot time.
  12. Ok here's an easy way that's not techy, but it's not cheap either. It requires 3 hard disks (i used 2 sata drives and one ide) and a usb hard disk caddy. (i used an sata usb2 caddy). 1. load deadmoo on a small hard drive, as per the excellent instructions posted on: http://www.osx86.theplaceforitall.com/howto/ However be aware that there is an error located in the code.

    Have you made any progress with litttle snitch?

    Universal Requests?

    Any progress with Little Snitch? I'd also be interested in Netbarrier or any applications you may know of that prevent unwanted 'outgoing' connections. Little snitch does a great job of this. Cheers
