  1. Any idea why my hackintosh freezes when I plug in my iphone 4. Anyone else have this kind behavior? No kernel panic, at least mouse and keyboard stopped working, haven't look does the clock stopped also. Nothing on logs, so i don't have any clue what causing this.
  2. Gigabyte GA-EX58-DS4

    First you need to download ideneb/iatkos or such bootable dvd, and install leopard from it. You can find howto install ideneb to other EX58 motherboards, you can follow those, because everything dont need to work (sound etc) it's enough if it boots to leopard. Try following this guide http://www.osx86install.com/install-osx86.html Then you need retail snowleopard dvd or iso-image, and install snowleopard to another disk from leopard. Then you need to install chameleon RC3, and then you need to put those kext's what I mentioned above post to the snowleopard install. Follow this guide. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=181903 Not going to write whole guides, because I thing everyone can get system to boot up with those guides what it's allready written to forum. And my english is not so good, so nobody will not understand my guides. So just helping you to get choose right kext's to your system. Hope this will help, and you get your system up and running..
  3. I have club3d hd4870, i quess they are same chip as both them have flickering problem at windows side. i use the evoenabler.kext, and it works fine. i have ga-ex58-ds4 motherboard, and it have same problems as you have. haven't got any audio work what ever i have try. not dsdt patch or applehda patch or anything helped. one got it showing some the builtin audio on systeminfo, but it didin't show anything at system preferences. So needed to use voodoohda.kext and use front audio jack, and only stereo. i haven't got realtekr1000.kext working on 64bit mode, it show's it active, but don't get ip from dhcp. Sometimes when it got stuck, you need to take power cord of you machine, and wait 20-30 seconds. And startup again, that should fix it. And it works fine at 32bit mode. voodoohda and realtekr1000 kext is at /S/L/E folder, and other kexts are in EFI folder. didin't get those work from EFI folder. My computer also goes sleep very well, but it don't wakeup. i quess it's the display card problem.
  4. Yes. I did have backup of working EFI-partition contains at desktop folder called EFI, and somehow the script didn't unmount the /Volumes/EFI, even there is check to force unmount, if the normal unmount failed. It worked after I put the -f parameter at the first umount command on script (before the script checks did the first unmount command worked, or does it need to force). if [[ -d /Volumes/EFI ]];then chflags nohidden /volumes/"EFI" umount -f /Volumes/EFI >> "$LOG" 2>&1 RTRN_ERR=$? fi if [[ $RTRN_ERR = 1 && $DISK_ID != $WRKING_DISK_ID ]]; then echo "Not unmounting normally - forcing unmount." >> "$LOG" umount -f /Volumes/EFI >> "$LOG" 2>&1 rm -rf /Volumes/EFI >> "$TEST_LOG" 2>&1 fsck_hfs /dev/disk${DISK_ID}s1 >> "$LOG" 2>&1 Yes and the systems somehow wants to mount the EFI partition on everyboot, even there is that no_log file. I needed to put the following line to my /etc/fstab to prevent it for mounting: UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx none hfs rw,noauto Where xxx...xxx is the partition uuid from EFI partition, and now it don't mount it on everyboot.
  5. Make sure that you don't have folder called EFI at ~/Desktop, it's kinda broke this script. I upgraded the new chameleon rc3 and new kext, and It now fixed the harddrive icons, and that those sata drives are not anymore eject drives. But it now mount's the EFI partition, even there is /Volumes/EFI/.fseventsd/no_log Is there any fix for that?
  6. Got it working with SL, so if someone need's help. You can ask here, and i try to help if i can (i'm totaly noob with mac's). boot parameters: -x32 -v (-v not need, but i like to see what's happening.) Not working: - sleep is not working - sound working only with VoodooHDA, and only stereo from front jacks. - can't use com.apple.boot.plist at EFI partition (waiting for root device, if you put boot-uuid= there) EFI partition: / -rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root wheel 305280 boot /Extra -rw-r--r-- 1 root admin 17288 DSDT.aml -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 316834 Extensions.mkext drwxrwxrwx 11 root admin 374 Stored_Kexts -rw-r--r-- 1 root admin 469 com.apple.boot.plist_old -rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root admin 1008 smbios.plist /Extra/Stored_Kexts drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 EVOenabler.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 JMicronATA.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 NullCPUPowerManagement.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 OpenHaltRestart.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 PlatformUUID.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 SleepEnabler.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 fakesmc.kext - EVOenabler is for Club3d Radeon HD 4870 1GB memory, and works fine. /System/Library/Extensions drwxr-xr-x@ 3 root wheel 102 RealtekR1000.kext drwxr-xr-x@ 3 root wheel 102 VoodooHDA.kext
