  1. Unlock volume for the new iPod 5.5G and Nano 2G

    Anyone know if there is a way to unlock the new iPod classic in the same way..?? Thanks in advance.
  2. Dell Dimension 8400 kernel panic problem with SSE3

    Which kernel did you use...?? I also have an 8400, and had problems with the kernel. Was using one of semthex's ones and it worked.
  3. Hi, Tired this on a new disk before trying it out on my main system disk. It worked like a charm. only did the steps outlined in the beginning of the thread and did not have to reinstall any other kext. Even natit works straight away and I did not loose my dual screen setup.
  4. 10.4.9 Updater Results (Loki.10.4.9)

    Unfortunatley does not work for me. I think it's to do with the fact that I have a dell 8400, and although it's SSE3, NX, nohept, even with the nohept kernel I just get a panic on boot. Hopefully if th esources are release emthex might be able to do his magic on it.
  5. I had a similar problem. But I installed the ATI PCIe drivers from the DVD. My original sapphire x1600xt (PCIe) died and I bought a new one. This just gave me garbage on the screen. After some investigation I discovered that the new card had a newer bios on it. I then re-flashed it with the older bios and it started to work. The new bios is p/n 11x5c8801SA-009 What you need on the x1600xt PCIe is this one p/n 11x5c8801SA-008 P.S. You may have to flash in dos mode as I found it would not use the windows utility, plus you need to force it to flash the card, cannot remmeber the exact commands but I remember -amtel as one of the parameters. Hope this helps.
  6. Dell GX620: Jas 10.4.5 DVD hangs

    When you get eth first prompt on the DVD, press any key to install, press F8 and then -v enter. See what errors you get. I ahve a Dell 8400 with a NEC 2100 dvd drive and that gives me the same problem. In -v mode I see loads of errors with the DVD. I had to disable it in BIOS and let it install from an NEC 3500, which worked for me on all Build dvd's.
  7. Want 10.4.8? Think you 'have' 10.4.8? It's out!

    New 10.4.8 is a Success!. It will be released after a small ppf is applied. In the mean time, be calm and patient. No AMD. No SSE2. (yet). original seed's MD5= bddb7c52947ce74381d70c9d82c9fa5d / SHA1=ad38365fcc3239d9758d8b7d633678fa3068a927/ Patched iso's P.S. I think they have to apply one more ppf before it's ready.
  8. 10.4.8 without HPET/NX and SSE2

    Dell D600 Pentium M 1500MHz CPUID (eax=0x01) EAX....: 0x695 EBX....: 0x816 ECX....: 0x180 EDX....: 0xa7e9fbbf
  9. JaS.10.4.8.SSE3.Intel.Only.ReSeed

    I thought the Semthex kernel was also SSE3, but without NX, and HPET, or am I completely wrong.
  10. It seems to work for me. The initial boot process had an error of no root device, then it start to install. Finished ok and it all seems to be working. Have no apps on it at the mo, but everthing seems to be there. I have a sapphire x1600xt and QE/CI is enabled but have mouse tearing and cannot increase the display size with in system preferences. Seems pretty fast. Used the Semtex kernel
  11. nothing interesting here

    I am in the same boat. My dell 8400 is SSE3, but it will only run the SSE2 kernel. I tried to build the new kernel, but it jsut panics on boot. Is there a way to force the build to be SSE2, wondering if that would fix the problem..??
  12. That was the point I was trying to make. Even thought my CPU says it is SSE3, I cannot run the SSE3 kernel, hence have always installed the SSE2 version of things. Maybe it's something to do with the origianl Maxxus kernel. I will have a play with my laptop with is definately SSE2 and see what I come up with. The apple8201 framework was from that. Will let you know if anything breaks.
  13. Thanks Quixos. My CPU is SSE3 but the SSE3 kernel won't run on it. Maybe this is why things seem to work for me, like Quicktime 7.13 and ITunes 7.0.1. I'm going to have a play with the frameworks. to see what happens. Thanks for all your help.
  14. Hi Quixos, I've been having a bit of a play with some of the frameworks. From what I can tell this really seems to depend on what machine you have. So far I have the following not installed: AppKit.framework DirectoryServices.framework Foundation.framework IOKit.framework Message.framework WebKit.framework GraphKit.framework DiskManagement.framework /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor.app And everything is working for me. Quick Question, Is there a good place to find what the other frameworks do, as I might ptu back the following but have no idea what they do: AppKit.framework DirectoryServices.framework Foundation.framework IOKit.framework Thanks in advance
  15. Hi quixos, Not sure if this applies to other people, but I was having a problem with my netgear wireless card. It would not automatically login to my network. Had to do it manually every time. A bit annoying. So I rebuild my machine, tried the JaS SSE2 combo update, and that trashed it. So rebuilt it again, using your method, and again had the the same problem with the wireless. So to cut a long story short I replace the following framework with my origianl one from 10.4.7, and it fixed my problem. The framework is: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple82011.framework Not sure if this helps anyone or was just a problem with my machine.
