  1. ASUS N61VG success (retail SL)

    You need to google on it. On Netkas's page there is a driver pack called QE CI Exotic cards 10.6.3.pkg.zip.. I can report you that ethernet works well for me too. Anyone with working sleep mode? I would like to fix it ASAP.

    no, ethernet and wifi are not supported, but system runs fully 64bit mode i have no disk unrepairable file permissions, like before.
  3. ASUS N61VG success (retail SL)

    HOW TO INSTALL SL WITHOUT EMPIRE-EFI Finally I found a better way to install and run Snow Leopard fully working in 64bit mode. I hope this update will helpful for some of you. Requirements: - working osx system on notebook - 2nd hdd, sd card or pendrive (min. 8GB) - 3rd hdd for the new system - carbon copy cloner - retail osx dvd - ASUS n61vg dsdt.aml (attached) - Chameleon RC4 (attached) - some kexts (attached) - kext utils (attached) Preparing your install disk a.) Partition and format your installation volume. Set 1 partition and GUID table for it in Disk Utility. b.) Name it to OSX86. c.) Uncheck "ignore ownership for this volume" checkbox on this volume. d.) install chameleon rc4 to OSX86 e.) Copy kexts (AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext, ApplePS2Controller.kext, fakesmc.kext, NullCPUPowermanagement.kext, PlatformUUID.kext) to /Volumes/OSX86/Extra/Extensions f.) Go to Disk Utlility, select OSX86 on the left and "restore" g.) Insert your retail SL dvd and set it to source h.) Set OSX86 as destination i.) Be sure that "Erase destination" checkbox is unchecked. j.) Click on restore button. k.) Wait l.) copy dsdt.aml to OSX86's root directory m.) copy dsdt.aml to your future installations root directory. After retail dvd is copied to volume OSX86 quit Disk Utility and open Terminal. Run the following commands: [color="#555555"]sudo chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/OSX86/System/Library/Extensions sudo chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OSX86/System/Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/OSX86/Extra/Extensions sudo chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OSX86/Extra/Extensions sudo kextcache -v 1 -m /Volumes/OSX86/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/OSX86/System/Library/Extensions (Note : This has to be in one line , not two separate lines) kextcache -v 1 -t -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext /Extra/AdditionalExtensions sudo kextcache -v 1 -m /Volumes/OSX86/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/OSX86/Extra/Extensions/[/color] Now your install disk is ready. Install SL a.) Boot OSX86 and install SL. b.) When the installation is done reboot. c.) Use OSX86's Chameleon but select the installed partition to load system. d.) Go though SL welcome screen and fill the forms. e.) Install Chameleon RC on it. f.) install kexts. g.) run QE CI Exotic cards 10.6.3.pkg h.) set com.apple.boot.plist (/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.boot.plist): add this lines to it: <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> g.) Run Kext utility. h.) Repair permissions i.) Reboot j.) That's all. If everything is ok, you can boot now and start using it in 64bit mode. Thanks to Prasys!!!!

  6. ASUS N61VG success (retail SL)

    I need to look after that but i think this version was that. I have the image on my external hdd and will try to tell you exactly witch EFI was it. (i tried 2 or 3)
  7. ASUS N61VG success (retail SL)

    Hello, Sorry, but i did not have time to write. So, here is the step-bystep guide: 0.) Attach an usb keyboard and a mouse to your pc. 1.) Download Empire EFI from here. 2.) Burn the iso 3.) Get a retail SL 10.6 DVD (I used the original one) 4.) Boot with Empire EFI 5.) Replace the boot cd 6.) Insert the install DVD and hit F5 7.) Press TAB and type the following: cpus=1 -x 8.) Press enter Be sure that you are using GUID partition table. If not, you can modify it with DiskUtlilty. The install procedure should be start and you only need to complete it in the regular mode. 9.) Replace SL install disk 10.) Reboot with Empire EFI disk again, but choice the installed system to boot. (i dont remember exactly if cpus=1 was needed at this point) 11.) On the EFI disk you will find a folder called 'postinstall', run myhack.dmg witch is in this directory. 12.) Repair permissions in DiskUtility 13.) Remove Empire EFI disk and try to reboot without any flags. If everything goes the right way, you need to reboot your system from hdd successfully. 14.) Now go to www.kexts.com and download the following drivers: a.) Voodoo Trackpad PS2 b.) VoodooHDA 32&64bit with CrackleFix c.) Voodoo Battery d.) GT240M (OK) (? GT210mGT220M)Snowleo 10,6,2 You will need this tools: Kext Helper B7 and Kext Utility x64 for SnowLeopard (update) 15.) Install the downloaded kexts using Kext Helper. 16.) Reboot. Now you need to have your kb, trackpad, audio and vga (QE/CI enabled, 1366x768) correctly. 17.) Remove SleepEnabler from Extra/Extensions and run Kext Utiliy 18.) Reboot and update to 10.6.3 from Software Update 19.) Download 10.6.3 compatible SleepEnabler 20.) Reboot and repair permissions. Hopefully you're done now. ------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------- The following components are working for me now: - vga (patched) - hdmi port, dual screen (patched) - audio in and out (patched) - SD card reader (OOB) - keyboard and touchpad (patched) - 2 cores (OOB) - WIFI (replaced with BCM94311MCG Wireless 802.11BG MINI PCI-E Card) works OOB as AirPort Card - LAN (atheros ar8131) Partially working: - webcam (upside down), some apps can use it with iGlasses. The components witch are not working at this time: - 2nd Card Reader (unknown chipset) - VGA out (NVCap or dsdt needs to be modified?) Write me if you have tipps how to fix this components or I can help you. Best regards and thanks for everyone who are working with hackintosh project.

  12. iTunes Error (-50) when trying up authorize

    WORKED FOR ME TOO!!! Thanks a lot, i'm tried to fix since weeks.
  13. Hello, Does anyone have idea what can this error means? Error: Coldn't create RGB colorspace Testpage comes out without error, but if i try to print from any app I get this error and nothing happens. I tried google and apple support forums, but no luck. Can this be some malfunction of my printer, incompatibility or something else? I calibrated my monitors with X-Rite EyeOne calibrator but don't think that can be side effect of this. Any idea where to seek about the root problem? Thanks
