  1. Drag the file icon (looks like a blank page) onto the desktop and then edit the file you dragged to the desktop. You do not edit the file using the flat package editor. You then replace the original file in the package with the one you edited by dragging the edited file back. Get it?
  2. If you have the developer tools installed, right click the .mpkg file (probably install.mpkg) and choose the open the file with the flat package editor. Drag the Distribution file onto your desktop and edit it with your favorite text editor. Mess around with the version checks flags. When you are finished with those edits, delete the old Distribution file in the .mpkg and drag your new one in. Save the .mpkg file and voila! Of course, don't forget to backup the old Distribution file just in case you messed up.

    Kalyway 10.5.7 issues

    USB worked on my Leopard install until I updated to 10.5.7. I used a slightly modified way of updating based on the netkas update guide. I ran the usual "AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext" deletion script before running the 10.5.7 combo update. After the update, I ran the kalyway 10.5.3 combo update kernel installer to install the modbin kernel. Then I replaced ALL the existing kext files with my backed up ones from 10.5.3. Now here is where things are different. When I went to edit the installatstartup script file with textedit, Textedit will show up on the dock and disappear instantly. I did a hard reboot and loaded up a backup Leopard install to edit that script file and then rebooted back to the updated system. Everything worked as usual except for usb devices. The thing is that the attached usb devices show up in the System Profiler under USB, but the devices are NOT mounted. I did not use the DSDT patcher or anything like that as everything went fine in 10.5.6. My computer uses a Pentium D processor with an ASUS p5wd2e premium mobo. I am not sure if there is any other info needed to resolve this problem of reinstalling the old USB driver. If anyone is also facing this problem and has a solution (other than downgrading to 10.5.6, please reply. Thanks!

    Volume Bezel

    After fiddling with some shortcut keys, I discovered that the key combo "command+left arrow+right arrow" makes the volume bezel appear. However, I have two problems with this. How do I adjust the volume using the bezel? As soon as I release the key combo, the bezel fades away. Can I change the key combo? Apparently Safari uses the key combo "command+left arrow" and "command+right arrow" for its Forward and Back function. With that said, whenever I try to activate the volume bezel, I either go forward a page or back a page. Anyone have any clues to resolve this problem? Editing the MainMenu.nib does not do anything to remove the shortcut key. All it does is change the key combo shown in the menu and it ADDS another key combo that I chose.

    Problems patching Leopard .iso file

    Bump. I would really appreciate it if someone has a answer to these patching problems I am facing.
  7. Alright, although I still did not get networking to work in Tiger, I did manage to transfer the patch files from xp to Tiger running in VMware. I am currently following this guide below to patch my Leopard install disc but since it is prepatched for SSE3, I need to swap a hacked SSE2 kernel in its place. The link to the guide is: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...=68077&st=0 Now since I was told that I need to enter the whole path to files, it raises some questions as to what to type into terminal. This is how the desktop looks like at the moment: In "hdiutil attach -readwrite $path_to_patch_dvd -owners on", the path to the patch dvd according to the screenshot should be "$Administrator's Computer/Mac OS X Install Disc x86.iso" is it not? In the next step, I had to navigate to the .iso file but the folder "Volume" does not exist. If I type "cd Administrator's Computer/Mac OS X Install Disc x86.iso", the terminal will tell me that I already did that. However, if the folder "Volume" does not exist on my computer, it would not make any sense to include it in the path. The next step requires me to move and rename the original mac kernel I am guessing but I do not see the renamed kernel anywhere. The last step in patching the .iso file is to copy the hacked SSE2 kernel in the original kernel's place but I am not sure if that actually happened. Also, is there supposed to be a space followed by a period behind "mach_kernel"? Then when I eject the virtual cd in Tiger and think I am done, Daemon Tools still has the .iso image mounted so I am wondering if the patching actually had any effect at all. When I attempt to boot up the Leopard installer using the patched .iso with Daemon Tools, I get a kernel stack error at the grey apple boot screen. I am guessing that means that the kernel patching did not work? If anyone could resolve this problem that would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  8. I was just wondering how I can convert my VMware emulated drive to a fixed HD as the guide that came with my Mac-OS-X-10.4.7-AMD.Intel-(JaS)-ISO-Repack.iso image, although it mentions it, it does not give any instructions as to how to do it. I had tried to install Hackintosh onto a physical partition with Daemon Tools mounting the .iso image but VMware had problems as it popped up dialogue box saying that the OS is confused about the state of the CD drive or something along those lines when I tried to pause the virtual machine or I had to forcefully shut down VMware after it took forever to shut down. Then if I tried to start the virtual machine again, it said it cannot open the .vmdk file or one of the snapshot disks it depends on as the partition table on the physical disk had changed since the disk was created. Then I will have to reformat the partition again and start over as the computer said Drive D is corrupt and to run chkdsk. Following the advice from a member from another forum, I reformatted the drive partition and got VMware to set up a virtual drive in that partition. I then reinstalled Mac OS X using Daemon Tools again to mount the .iso image but I selected to install Mac OS X on the emulated drive instead. The installation worked and I no longer have those pause/shutdown problems anymore. However, now I want Hackintosh to run natively now as it is faster but the problem is my computer does not have a dvd burner/reader. Therefore I am wondering about how to convert my VMware emulated drive to a fixed HD as since it was mentioned in the guide I read, it must be possible. If anyone could link me to a guide that you followed and found it worked for you please post it or at least please offer some assistance regarding this matter. Thanks!

    Will this 7 year old comp work with Tiger?

    Which iso files did you use as the problem is that I found this torrent called "Mac OS X 1047 AMD Intel (Jas) ISO Repack but the problem is that isn't Radeon an ATI graphics card not an AMD one? If anyone can clarify that or can recommend another ISO torrent that will work, it will be much appreciated. The torrent I downloaded is from here.
  10. I am just wondering if my 7 year old comp with a Radeon 2900 series graphics card will work. I had seen posts on this forum of people who had successfully installed Tiger with a Radeon 9000 mobility and a Radeon 9200 mobility but that is not the same as a Radeon 9200. If anyone can tell me if Tiger would work based on the system info picture below that will be great! Thanks. P.S. Which iso files should I use? I heard some people used the Jas repacked iso files but I couldn't seem to find working links for all of the file parts.
