  1. Hi! Here you go - it's in portuguese, but the layout is the same. This case is for the iPad, maybe for the iPhone you can change the title Cheers
  2. Yes, the "about Mac" menu makes a kernel panic - I think there's a solution for that but I really haven't looked it up. The quicktime video part I dunno, haven't tried it yet (but I think it works)
  3. I had to write that code in two different both com.apple.Boot.plist files, found in /Extra and /Library/Preferences/System Configuration Did you do this? PS: I finally have USB access! dunno why really, but that works!
  4. Hope it helped you! Does anyone have any input on my USB issue?
  5. Hi!, I have successfully installed Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.6) on my computer, and right now have a couple of issues, nothing too critical. Just wanted to leave my installation steps, should anyone use it, and ask for some pointers on the stuff I don't have running yet (if possible) So, first off, my computer main specs: Processor: Intel Core Duo E5500 2.4Ghz Motherboard: Abit FP-in9 SLi RAM: 6 Gb RAM Graphics: nVidia GTS250 (2x SLi) Monitor: 1680x1050x32 (Samsung LCD) OS: Windows 7 64 bit + Virtualbox 4.0 I used a guide I found on sysprobs.com, and that served it's purpose fairly well. I basically installed 10.6.0 and downloaded the combo update to 10.6.6. Issues found during installation, that may be useful for others: Hardware Virtualization: the first tries Virtualbox was reporting that I hadn't hardware VT enabled/present. This is some kind of bug with my abit MB (I think), because it is detected if you go to the BIOS, disable it and re-enable it. Virtual drive space: I started off with a 10Gb drive. That's a big no-no, considering I started with a Snow Leopard 10.6.0 disk and went on with the combo install and after that I installed iOS SDK 4.2 + Xcode (9Gb+). For this I had to reinstall SL on a 20Gb disk - and I currently have only 2Gb free space. You can delete lots of stuff, but it doesn't give you more than 1-2Gb (google for Monolingual). Mouse: I needed to use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to make this to work after the 10.6.6 combo update. Basically I did not have any mouse, and I had to apply the IOUSB kext patch to make it work. But beware: Mac OS X without a mouse is hell to use - one tip CTRL+F7 makes the TAB key cycle normal, through every window option, Windows key+O accepts an option (yeah, like the Enter key in Windows/every command line terminal and doesn't work on OS X!) and Windows key+space bar pops up Spotlight search - took me ages to find this and lots of raging. Keyboard: After I got the mouse working then I didn't have keyboard. Nice. I reapplied the IO USB kext again (this time a file I found on the web), and it started working again. I'm not sure if it was the VoodooPS2 fix that did it - I saw the Profiler logs and this apparently wasn't starting up - hence IO USB was the most likely solution Screen resolution: well, as snow leopard is not officially supported, there's no seamless integration. That would be excellent! Anyway, in order to fix my screen resolution to the full size of my LCD screen I had to add the Graphics Mode fix in both com.apple.Boot.plist files (found in /Extra and /Library/Preferences/System Configuration), after kernel flags <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1680x1050x32</string> Also, virtualbox scale mode works fine, so that's great As for stuff that isn't working - I don't know to make it work, or simply it doesn't work: Quartz Extreme: this doesn't work in Virtualbox. The nVidia card isnt't recognized in any way. I don't know if there's a solution for this, but I'm thinking this would make a lot of difference in the VM performance. Audio: it's not working, but I think I had it working on the first install. Don't need it for now, so I left at that; USB devices: I want to connect my iPhone to export the Xcode apps, but I am not getting how to do this. It is really the one thing that I need for now, and any input would be great . I also can't connect a simple thing as a pendrive, all devices always show as busy in Virtualbox. (Updated: it works!! I created an USB filter where I kept only the Apple vendor ID - dunno if this is the fix, but I won't touch it any further!) Shutdown/reboot: this is a nag, because it never works. The OS always crashes on reboot/shutdown, and after that it sometimes only boots the second time after. Don't know what's happening here, I tried a lot of kexts, none worked. Last thing tried was adding "-f arch=i386 pmVersion=20" on the com.apple.Boot.plist files, but still the same. And of course, a lot of assistance came from the insanelyMac forums search! Thanks!
  6. Problemas pós-instalação

  7. O kalyway 10.5.2 num ta abrindo pen drives

    Também tive o mesmo problema ( http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=124274 ) e resolvi através deste link: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=124274
  8. Hi, I have successfully installed Kalyway 10.5.2 MacOS x86 on my laptop (specs below). I am new in the Mac world, and I was interested to learn a bit. So... After the installation I have encountered some issues, and I have been searching around for solutions. So far I stumbled upon some, but I really don't know if they are applicable, and that's where I needed some expert comment: Display: My 1400x1050x32 display is working at 1024x768, and that's the only option available at display settings... How (if possible) can I add my optimal resolution to the selection options? I read about the Callisto drivers (http://omni.110mb.com/callisto/), is this what I am looking for or is there a easier option (I also read something about changing a plist file...) Changed to 1280x1024 using this key (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=5513): <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1400x1050x32</string> Apparently there are no drivers for this chipset (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...=12207&st=0)... So problem not solved. And Callisto is for ATI cards only...? [*]USB devices: This one is driving me nuts... If I connect a pen drive it shows in the System Profiler, under USB, but the drive doesn't appear anywhere! If I connect my iPhone, the pen drive disappears from System Profiler and the iPhone appears instead. Same again, Itunes does not find the device! Solved by reading this guide: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...amp;mode=linear [*]Wireless support: Intel 2100b device drivers are in the making, by what I have read. I didn't fully understand if there was any beta or not... Will check., but apparently no support: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry878905 There are probably more issues with my installation, but it is great to see it running! Cheers, acseven ps: On the up-n-up... My Bluetooth dongle, that takes about 2 hours to install in Windows and is a pain to configure works instantly in Leopard! Cool! Not very useful, but cool!
