  1. Hello Hackintosh Community, after a Weekend full of searching and trying, i got my ASUS UL30VT fully work as a Snow Leopard Hackintosh! I never had expected that so many components would work! Because of the smilier Hardware, i think the Asus UL30xx, UL50xx and UL80xx should work with my Guide! It would be great if u could give feedback after trying! Whats Working: - Wireless (+ n Support) - Ethernet - USB - Sound - Microphone - Webcam (Use Webcam-Twist to fix Upside Down http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=2825) - Graphics (nativ) with QE/CI (GeForce G210M) - HDMI (Video, didnt test Audio) - Trackpad (including two-finger-scrolling, didn't tested gesture-enabling yet) - Power Management - Card Reader - FN+F5 / F6 for Display-Brightness - FN+F7 for turn off Display Not working: - Sleep (maybe it works with the right Kext, didn't tested) You will need a USB Mouse + Keyboard for Installation and set-up your Hackintosh! (While Installation, Keyboard works, Trackpad doesn't. After Installing Combo-Update, Keyboard stops working too, everything until the kexts are installed!) If you have the Asus UL30xx u need an external DVD Drive. Installing from USB didn't worked for me. Download my Kext-Collectiom from Attachment and copy to a USB-Stick! Lets go: 1) Go to Bios: F2 at Boot -> Advanced -> IDE Configuration -> SATA Operation Mode ENHANCED -> F10 to Save 2) Boot with i boot: Press ESC at Boot and choose External DVD to Boot. When u are in Chimera Boot Menü, insert Snow Leopard Disc and press F5 until "Mac OS X Install DVD" comes. Choose it and type "PCIRootUID=1 GraphicsEnabler=No -x", then press Enter. REMEMBER: Its US-Keyboard layout! 3) Wait until Mac OS X Installation Screen. Go to Utilities -> Disk Utility to format your HDD like you want to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Remember: The bootloader can only boot from a disk or partition of 1 TB or less. 4) Continue Installation and choose your Partition/HDD you want to install Mac OS X. You can fasten installation by clicking on "customize" and uncheck "Printer Drivers". Click ok, Install and wait until finishing. 5) Reboot after finishing and boot from i boot CD. Your Partition with Mac OS X should be displayed now. Choose it, type "PCIRootUID=1 GraphicsEnabler=No -x" and press Enter. After Boot-Up, u may will see the Mac-Intro-Video (if not, its ok too). Now Set-Up the Mac. Don't ask me why, but Sound and Keyboard worked for me at this moment. After Combo-Update, it wont work anymore and we have to install Kext to get it work again. (Maybe someone can explain this?) The Graphic u are running now is the integrated Intel Graphics without Q/E, we will enable the Nvidia-Card after the Combo Update! 6) Now Open [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] - don't run it yet, just leave it open. Mount MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.7.dmg and install MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.7.pkg. Upon completion, the installer will ask you to reboot. DO NOT REBOOT. Switch to the already open [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. (If it closes, just re-open it!) Continue until "Custom Install on Snow Leopard" and select [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], System Utilities and IOSUSBFamily Rollback (Its in Drivers & Bootloaders > Kexts & Enablers > Miscellaneous). Continue and install. Reboot. You don't need i boot CD for booting in your OS anymore. Chimera Bootloader is installed! 7) After Reboot, install "Kext Wizard" (just move it into Applications Folder)! Don't ask why, but Keyboard and Sound stops working now! U will need your USB Keyboard! Open Kext Wizard and goto "Installation". Move all Kexts from Kexts folder of my Attachement in and press Install. When finished, go to Maintenance and Select "System/Library/Extensions" and press "Execute". This takes a while. 8) When finished, run the "VooDooHDA.prefpane" File and press YES to install it as a Preferences-Panel. Then copy VooDooHDASettingsSaver to "/Extras" and set it as a Login Icon at Systemoptions -> User! 9) When its done, reboot and press F2 to get into BIOS. Go to Advanced -> IDE Configuration and change SATA Operation Mode to COMPATIBLE. Press F10 to Save and exit. 10) Boot up and enjoy your full supported HACKINTOSH! Details: If your Sound-Symbol isnt displayed, go to Systempreferences -> audio and enable "Display Volume in Menu"! You will need to edit your Soundoptions in VooDooHDA Prefpane. Goto Microphone and Mute the "Input Gain". If u don't do this, u will hear the sounds of Mic on Boxes. Set my VooDooHDA Settings, seen on Screenshots! To Save the VooDoo Option, use VooDooSaver from Attachement: Copy it to /Extras and set it as a Login item (in Systempreferences -> Users) voodoohda.tiff Battery Life is AWESOME! I had a really good performance for hours with middle-display-brightness and WiFi! Don't forget that only the NVIDIA GeForce 210M is running (UL30VT has Hybrid Graphics with Integrated Intel). Even in Ubuntu i hadn't such as good performance! The Battery-Icon tells me up to 7 hours @ 100% (wlan on, …). DONT UPDATE! After a 10.6.8 Update WiFi and more stopped working. I think some KEXTs aren't compatible to 10.6.8. For me, its not a real problem: Just block "Update" with LittleSnitch Firewall! Maybe some smart friends can help us Use the 10.6-supporting version of InsomniaX to disable sleep when lid closing. Download my KEXT-Collection! asus_ul_kexts.zip Please give me feedback and write down improvements! I will update my post then! Thanks to the hackintosh community!!! MrProps!

    Asus ul30vt, ul50vt, ul80vt collective knowledge

    Are there any improvements? Im thinking to install SL on my ul30vt .. i would like to use the intel card only to get more battery life. What about the integrated wireless lan? Would be cool if someone is up2date and could tell me!
  5. @cmitch33: type "chmod 755 test" in terminal, then it will work! @dlambert: your script reduces stuttering, but its not completly fixed maybe a "harder" script? Thank you alot!
  6. Hi Community! I installed the 10.6.3 of Hazard and updated it to 10.6.5. Now i wanted to install the Graphics Update 1.0 to enable QE, but always when i try to run the update, the installer tells me that it couldnt be installed on that disc because its for 10.6.4 or later ... but i have 10.6.5! Any ideas?
  7. Hi! Thank you for the help! I could boot after the update by deleting the two kexts before. Like David23 said, i installed all the kexts of this Guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=241064 Then i installed Chameleon RC5 and tried to reboot with -f, but i get panics at the grey apple logo. Maybe i shouldnt install all the kexts of this guide? Wich kexts du you mean with "the right kexts for 10.6.5"? Thank you!
  8. No one has an idea? Its really important .. have to use my computer again :S cant work with a ubuntu live cd all the time ...
  9. With -v i get this: If i try to boot normal, i can see a new loading bar wich is going away after the half! Maybe the problem is this "getCPUID unknow ID"? Thank you really so much for your help! BTW: Happy new year
  10. Ive got another Problem now: After the Update to 10.6.5 i cant boot anymore. It stops at the apple and the turning cyrcle. I can boot as single user or with a live CD, but i dont know how i can fix it. I deleted the sleepenabler.kext and the cache kext in startup folder. Before i restart after update, i installed the legacy kernel for 10.6.5! I had the ANV 10.2.0 before. Anyone has an idea how to fix this? BTW i used the combined update of hazard.
  11. Ok i will try that now .. but: wich kext files from the guide u mean? This one: 1. ATY_Init.kext 2. ATI5000Controller.kext 3. ATIFramebuffer.kext 4. ATISupport.kext or this one: 1. ATIRadeonX3000.kext 2. ATIRadeonX3000GA.plugin 3. ATIRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle 4. ATIRadeonX3000VADriver.bundle or both? And what do you mean with change the boot file with this one? Wich boot file i have to overwrite with the boot.gz of the topic? Sorry but im not sure .. how can i boot with -f, and how can i do that automaticly always? Thank you!

    Sound volume not changing

    Hi! I need a solution too! Im using the AzaliaAudio.pkg and it works fine, but i cant change the Volume! Thank you!
  13. Hi Community! I installed Snow Leopard with this Tutorial: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=213366 I've got a MSI 770-C45 and a Pheneom CPU too, so everything worked fine. My problem is my Graphiccard: Saphire ATI HD 5670 During the installation, i had a higher Resolution as 1024x768, i think it was smth like 1280x800. When my OS X started, it had gone down to 1024x768 Resolution. The good thing was, that my Graphiccard was installed without any Kext: Display: Type: GPU Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 256 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x68d8 Revision ID: 0x0000 Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded Displays: Display: Resolution: 1024 x 768 Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes But as you can see, it detects my Display as a 1024x768 Resolution Display, but its a 1440x900 one. In options, i cant select another Resolution. I tried to edit the apple.boot.plist (or smth) and added the Boot Graphic thing with the right resolution, but that didnt work for me. I dont know, maybe i did something wrong with the syntax. Can anyon post me the right plist setting (completly)? Also I tried to add the Drivers by following this Tutorial: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=241064 I dont wanted to try that, because my OSX detected and installed the driver already, but after i couldnt change the resolution, i hoped to fix it by trying it. After i made a Software Update to 10.6.4 (it was required), i couldnt start my OSX anymore. So it couldnt helped me .. i installed my OSX again. I hope someone can help me! It really would be great!
