  1. Now with the launch of a 45% faster VMware 11 and better support for graphics, has anyone had time to test it yet? Does the unlocker work? Thnx!
  2. Good morning, Was trying to get vmware 10 to display "Mac OS X 10.9" but no go. Was taking a lot of care to install the unlocker correctly. Any chance someone could share the vmware files, before install? ( That should be a small set of files, including config vmx files and empty hard drive files) PRITTY PLEASE I am a OSX developer and Have a Legal GM, and would like to grab a VM to run on my Windows Machine at work... THNX!
  3. Anyone running VMware 9 and 10.9 DP1 Yet? I have 10.8.4 running super well, but trying to upgrade... I get gray screen and Beach Ball ;( Any help?

    The VMWare Workstation 9 Delemma

    Upgrade Hardware to 9.0? Will have a look now... How did you go about it ( Might help other people too?) * Found it, Under the Power on VM Machine settings there is a new option to Update Hardware Compatability to version 9... Running it now ( And cloning VM just in case)
  5. As you all might or might not have seen VMware Workstation 9 and Fusion 5 is out... More than likely to server the Windows 8 and Server 2012 crowd, and hopefully give a little love to Ubuntu 12.04 ( Much needed) But my Shiny new 10.8 ML VM has slowed down to a crawl, and graphics is gone.... What a sad day..... Any one have an idea, or how can I update the unlocker?
  6. Heya, Did it Guide to follow! Was a Team Effort with SLI-Man What you need - Working Snow Leopard - VMware Fusion for Mac - Guide from http://www.obviouslogic.com:8080/solutions/lion-vmware/ (Well Done!) - Files from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=220750 (Unlocker - for Windows) - Some Time Sli-Man Guide will follow ps... just an update. Running 64Bit All Done! Just wanted to show final result

    Sound and SSE3

    Morning or Evening All.... I have a quick question, and please point me to a topic if I missed it... When I use the 10.4.4 or 10.4.8 SSE3 Kern, than my sound stops working when I try and play a movie file, 30 seconds or so in to watching a movie, and the sound is just gone... With the old 10.4.4 SSE2 Kern... no problems. I am using an 865G motherboard. Gigabyte 865GME-775 with a Pentium D805 CPU.... Any one with any ideas? ArcticRift
  9. To add to the guide I posted before, I have now done it with an install of Jas old kern 10.4.8 I had, Download the newest Beta 7 semthex kern Follow the steps, Update with 10.4.8Combo Updater then replace the IOATAFamily, SMBios and Kern, Fix Permissions, and restart, First restart will go to : Now fixing diskarb sessions or something similar... it will fail... restart... and then on restart add -v -legacy to your boot sequince.... you can add it to your plist.boot later.... and then it will just work.... I lost my ATI 9800XT CI/QE, but prasys has a fix. Hope you guys have more luck.... I have it down to a fine art now
  10. Heya Sevo, If you get to the point where is shows you the kern version and name, start up with -v -legacy, it means you are there and it should be working. It is something I see a lot with the Neb kern by Semthex, Let me know how it goes. Thing is, I did this on a 915 board... and everything worked 100% using -v -legacy, when I moved it to my 865 with radeon 9800XT ... it stoped working though... so I am still at the drawing board.... here is a more complete step by step you can try....... 1: Install 10.4.4 (4.5,4.6,4.7) as a normal bootable install. 2: Boot into newly installed system. Lets begin backing up files that you will need to replace back after 10.4.8 combo update. 3A: sudo -s 3B: mkdir /backup 3C: cp -R /System/Library/Extensions/* /backup Step 3D only needs to be done if you have a 915 based mobo 3D: cp -R /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework /backup Leave Terminal open as you will need it again shortly. 4: Run Apple 10.4.8 Combo update - DO NOT REBOOT WHEN IT COMPLETES Wait until combo update completes - DO NOT REBOOT WHEN IT COMPLETES Now comes kernel choice and restoring important files that we just backed up 5: Now that combo update is finished, I suggest using a kernel with r2 support built in at least to help with first bootup post combo update. After you're up and running you can use decrypts if you want, and use a kernel without r2 support. 5A: Back to Terminal type mv /mach_kernel /mach_kernel.unpatched 5B: cp /location/to/your/patched/mach_kernel /mach_kernel Steps 6,7,8 only need to be done if you use GMA (900 or 950) based video. 6: Run this in Terminal: cp -R /backup/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext /System/Library/Extensions 7: Steps 7A to 7C to be done only if you have a 915 based mobo 7A: rm -fr /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA950.kext 7B: rm -fr /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework 7C: cp -R /backup/OpenGL.framework /System/Library/Frameworks 8: Step 8A only to be done if you have a 950 based mobo 8A: rm -fr /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntel915.kext 9: Copy this AppleSMBIOS.kext to /System/Library/Extensions. 10: Copy this IOATAFamily.kext to /System/Library/Extensions. You might be able to skip this step if you have and ICH7 or ICH8 based motherboard chipset. Trial and error 11: Repair permissions with Disk Utility. 12: Reboot now (and pray). 13: Upon first bootup, osx will initiate one reboot on its own, don't be alarmed. 14: Enjoy! Good luck on it working for you!

    How would you build a 10.4.8 Kern Patch for ALL?

    Ramjet, I know that, the fact that it isn't simple "is" the problem here... that we will be addressing. I want to make it easier, I want to include the patches, kext files etc, needed. You have a working 10.4.7 install, your run the Package, you have a 10.4.8 with the new Kern... presto.... I will test all the Package or install makers, Are you not understanding the basic principals of the project here? How is important yes... but knowing what you want to achive at first is even more important. I will start work this evening, and see if I can get something working.

    How would you build a 10.4.8 Kern Patch for ALL?

    Heya Ramjet, I am talking about making an installer for those of us who do now have the JaS DVD or a Gigs of Bandwidth. And once the installer is made, if I post the pre-built one, then one can just add the new kern in, build with packagemaker and there you go... or once you have a new kern install, you can then just add a new kern in. It is just to help those of us that already have a wokring system, and just want to new kern, and Nvidia support. Maybe I will add in the new Nvidia drivers too.. What do you guys think?
  13. I have been reading about people building their own Kern update installers with packagemaker...... If there are already DVD's out there, patching the new Kern in to the install, couldn't one just make a Package that will install, repair the permissions, and there you go? Who would be the fastest and best to ask to do this? Semthex, JaS, Mfiki, Vitaly? I will start looking in to building an installer package this weekend, and if I succeed, I will drop it somewhere to find next week.... Any one else want to try? We can aim for the Neb Kern.... seems to be the most popular at the moment...
