I am also in this situation. It would be nice for someone to rewrite his tut, it look like its rock solid but i can seem to understand alot of it.
I will extrapolate here on some of were my problems are in the guide. I have highlighted in Red And Bold where my misunderstanding is.
Open Terminal/Finder/etc, go to System/Library/Extensions. start installing update.
What goes where etc is?
Monitor System/Library/Extensions folder, once AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext appears there - remove it immideatly.
u can use this little script for it, run as root, before starting upgrade
while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done
While in sleep 1? What does this mean?
Do i run this script before, after, or as soon as i see the file appear?
once update finished, press ctrl-c in terminal window, to stop script, don’t press restart !
after it, open this file in textedit - /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1
find there string /System/Library/Extensions/Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext
and replace with this string /System/Library/Extensions/dsmos.kext or r3d3 if u use r3d3.
then save it.
This just means replace a file path, right?. how do i know if i use r3d3?
now u can recover ur applesmbios/applehda/etc (didn;’t u forget to make backups b4 running update ?)
and finaly press restart.
How do i recover it?
on first start it will do smth, without booting to gui, then it will reboot, it can take about 3-4 mins, then it shuld boot normaly, if u didn;t forget smth.
smth? Huh? Whats that?
of course it’s all for intel core 2 based cpus and intel mobos. and pc_efi.
other users can use 10.5.1 kernel/system.kext with 10.5.2 system (like amd users or pentium-d)
I have a pentium 4 processor, 2.66 Ghz, Will it work? What do i have to do special?
I know for a fact that I would like a more descriptive tutorial. Other than that the tutorial is great, and the feedback on it looks good too.
