  1. First, you need a working bluetooth dongle. As I said, the bluetooth worked perfectly normal on 10.8.4. I found that on Mavericks, when I booted the machine with UseKernelCache=Yes, my bluetooth just didn't work. This is caused by the AppleKextExcludeList.kext. My howTo is to tell people that a little patch on the AppleKextExcludeList.kext and rebuild the kext cache is LIKELY to solve the problems. One more thing, I need to define the word "problem" here. Problem: Hardware that worked with any hackintosh version prior 10.8.4 stopped working on Mavericks. So if you have hardware that does not work at all with any hackintosh versions, this howTo just doesn't help.
  2. I had a fully working hackintosh until 10.8.4. In 10.8.5, sound doesn't work. In 10.9, not only sound, but also bluetooth stopped working from time to time -- sometimes I had to repair my wireless keyboard, sometimes my bluetooth even failed to connect to anything. In 10.8.5 and 10.9, sound needs a new DSDT. Let me focus on the bluetooth here. At first, I solved the bluetooth problem by setting UseKernelCache to No. But soon I found if I booted with kernel cache once, I shall never get bluetooth back to work again. I reinstalled the whole 10.9, and did the least patch: 1. Install Chimera-v2.2.1.pkg 2. Put DSDT.aml, org.chameleon.Boot.plist (IMPORTANT: set UseKernelCache to No) and smbios.plist to /Extra 3. Use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to install (All extracted from [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 6.0) : (1) AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext (2) AppleHDA.kext (3) AppleRTC.kext (4) FakeSMC.kext (5) RealtekRTL81xx.kext After these 3 steps I got a fully working 10.9 hackintosh build. And this time, I will not use kernel cache. I googled and found that I need to edit AppleKextExcludeList.kext ( copy to desktop, edit with vi, and then install it back with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]) I opened the Info.plist (terminal.app and then vi), delete almost everything in the <dict>, leaving only one entry. And then reboot my system (Still UseKernelCache=No), open terminal.app, execute the commands: 1. cd /System/Library/Cache 2. sudo rm -r com.apple.kext.caches 3. cd ~ 4. sudo kextcache -update-volume / (a huge list will appear along with an alert window, just press OK) 5. set UseKernelCache=Yes 6. Reboot Now everything worked. Please download the zip, and you will see my: org.chameleon.Boot.plist AppleKextExcludeList.kext kernelcache-fix.zip
  3. Congratulations. Your GPU works just right both on Windows and Mac. I think it might be the problem that GT240 is not compatible enough with OS X.
  4. Okay, don't forget to post results
  5. I re-flashed the bios of GT240, nothing changed. I removed AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext in order to keep the gpu running at full speed, but it kept half of the speed it should be. I edited the plist file in AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext, the problem still exists. I am thinking that Apple is doing something special to make the graphic performance of hackintosh staying half. I don't have many cards to prove this. If you guys are interested, please post CUDA-Z screenshot compared to CUDA-Z in Windows. CUDA-Z can be found here: http://cuda-z.sourceforge.net/

CUDA-Z can be found here: http://cuda-z.sourceforge.net/ [Old Post] I thought I had built a perfect mackintosh, but I was wrong. The GPU kept running at half speed I changed smbios from MacPro 3,1 to iMac 12,2, and I noticed that AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext was loaded, but the GPU was still running half speed no matter I kept AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext or had it removed. Please see the pictures. Performance in Windows 7 is much higher than that in OS X. === Software === OS X: Mountain Lion 10.8.3 Method:Un1beast + Mu1tibeast + DSDT CPU Speedstep: Perfect Sleep, Wakeup, Restart, Shutdown: Perfect LAN, Audio: Perfect (Yes, even recording from mic) === Hardware === Gigabyte GA-EP43-US3L Pentium Dual Core E6300 Nanya 2GB DDR2-1066 *2 Gigabyte GeForce GT240 with 512MB GDDR5 WD 320G SATA HDD
  7. The real Mac - iMac or Mac mini do not have any batteries, what would happen when there is a power loss? I am considering building a hackintosh with Fusion Drive, but before I do, I'd like to know whether it is stable. Currently I have the OS X and Applications on the SSD, and a 2TB HDD divided into 2 partitions, one for Time Machine, which backs up all my content on the SSD, one for Data like movies and downloads. I am considering moving to the Fusion Drive.
  8. Is there anyone who can help test the opencl capablity on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, the one with Ivy Bridge processor. I know the HD 4000 is good enough to beat nVidia 320M at some points. But is it good at OpenCL? Many pro applications like Aperture, Final Cut Pro uses OpenCL to enhance the computing power. If you own an Ivy Bridge MacBook Pro 13-inch, and you are willing to be the tester, please download the opencl benchmark tool here( http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/32396/opencl-displacement-benchmark---ati-+-nvidia ) and run the program, capture a screen shot, and post it here. Here is mine. MacBook Pro 13-inch Mid-2010, C2D 2.4GHz/8G RAM/128G SSD/nVidia 320M Result: around 37fps
  9. A SSDT.aml solved my problem. It's caused by the 10.7.4 update.
  10. This is my geekbench sore, which is as low as little more than 4000. http://browse.geekbe...ekbench2/682252 And I was expecting the result is more than 7000. http://browse.geekbe...ekbench2/664223 Please help. My hackintosh is: Core i5 2320, 4 cores, running at 2933MHz Dual-Channel 8GB DDR3 RAM running at 1333MHz Gigabyte H61M-S3P, with dsdt.aml I made for myself, which you can find in the attachment Gigabyte Geforce GT520, which is compatible with Lion Normal 500GB 7200RPM HDD, AHCI mode I installed the Mac OS X Lion from scratch, then upgrade to 10.7.3, and then 10.7.4, ####### is the key. Please help me to boost its performance where it should be. All 4 cores are enabled, because I can see 4 cores in the Activity Monitor. dsdt.aml.zip

    Rename Bluetooth PAN to Ethernet. That's the simplest solution.

    the first one is blocked too. the second one works for me.

    Hi, will you please post the driver here right in this forum because blogspot.com is blocked in mainland China.
