  1. So you installed Mountain Lion in your AMD machine. You did it despite all you heard about heavy graphics corruption rendering the system unusable, at least in a hardware accelerated environment. But you also read some ATI cards would work with full QE/Ci, with enough stability to make your big cat purr, so you researched and asked, read and compared, and then bought an ATI card that could give you reasonable expectations and, voilà, it did work like a joy! Or perhaps you already had an ATI card and found out that it was in the joy list, or even wasn't there and you decided to give a go anywhay: if you don't play the game, how can you win - and you really did it. So you installed Mountain Lion and, after found all or almost all drivers you needed for your machine to fully work, you could realy brag about having a top notch, modern and innovative OS, roaring like an alpha cat on your not-so-pricey machine. Mission control? Improves yor productivity. Full screen apps? Really smooth? Cloud services? Well, that was hard but you found a workaround and perhaps have it working? Safari 6 and its iCloud integrated browsing? Huh? Well, if you like letter soup games, or solving word puzzles, or even admiring abstract pictures, you might as well have enjoyed it. Otherwise, you swtched to another browser, like Firefox or Chrome: they have some fine-tuning options, and you found out that, by disabling hardware accelerated compositing, they worked just they should. It really bothered you: besides missing the iCloud tab, which is a cool feature in itself and could be very helpful if you are a happy owner of an iDevice, not being able to use a core app like Safari felt like being able to watch the movie, but sitting behind a man with a big hairy head, or being served delicious pancakes, but with no syrup, or visiting Paris, only to find out the Louvre was closed for maintenance. Having the OSX experience, but not all that experience you could. Up to now, you had to live with it, because the fine-tuning options that saved the game for the other browsers are simply not available in Safari. Up to now, because in fact they are available. And i'll teach you how to make them naughty tools to show up, and how they can grant you the Safari experience you were craving for. First, open our good old friend the terminal. Copy this to the window and type enter: defaults write com.apple.safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1 Then open Safari. You'll see the messed graphics it usually have shown, but at the top, there's the menu bar, and you'll find a new guest there, the debug option: Clicking on it, this window will show: You will select Drawing/Compositing Flags and another window will show up: Then you'll check Disable Canvas Accelerated Drawing and Disable Full Page Accelerated Drawing in New Windows, just like in the last picture. That done, restart Safari and you will be able to try the Mountain Lion version of this wonderful browser on your AMD hackintosh. Live with that, Intel users! Enjoy your Safari. Be kind with the wildlife! All the best!
  2. Hi! As some of you may know, the AMD hackintosh scene isn't dead! Thanks to our genius developers (AnV, Sinetek, Nawcom, R:A:W:X86 and others... ), we now have ability to boot SL on AMD machine, WITH ARCH=x86_64! This involves some patching and tricks, and doesn't YET work on all AMD boxes. UPDATE: Sinetek just released a new kernel for Athlons and other Pre-Phenom CPUs! NOTE: After successful 64-bit boot (System Profiler -> Software -> 64-bit Kernel and Extensions: Yes), please post your processor in this topic. Confirmed processors: Phenom II x6 1090T Phenom II x4 965 Athlon II X4 645 Athlon II x4 640 Athlon II x3 435 Athlon X2 250 Athlon 64 x2 4000+ Requirements Working 10.6.8 installation, with either AnV or Nawcom legacy kernel Phenom II or maybe some other processor with L3 cache. Doesn't work with Athlons yet. Amd_insn_patcher to get patched dyld and other files. Backups, if you don't want to start everything from the start again. A little bit of brains, I think about 10 grams is enough. Installation Make sure you have backup of your HDD etc. I'm not responsible if you lose any of your data or if anything happens to your hard- / software. This may, or may not work. Don't do this if you have a working i386 -force64 system and you're happy with it. This kernel and other stuff is purely experimental, not stable release. Continue only if you have understood this. Let's start the process. Boot your hackintosh with AnV or Nawcom kernel, with arch=i386 and -force64! The patcher will screw your installation if you don't boot with -force64. Download the right kernel for your CPU, don't replace your existing kernel with it, just put it to the root of your HDD Patch your dyld and other stuff. Only works if you booted with -force64! Google more instructions for patching. This version of patcher works for me. Edit your boot.plist, change kernel to "sinetek" and arch=x86_64. No need for -force64 anymore. (or try with manual bootflags first) MAKE SURE ALL YOUR KEXTS ARE 64-BIT! This could work (not on Mac atm, can't test), x86_64 means 64-bit. Try to reboot. If it fails, reboot and type your bootflags in the Chameleon screen like: legacy_kernel arch=i386 -force64 Post problems / successes here and I'll try to help you.

  3. Hello all, I've recently installed retail Snow Leopard 10.6.3 in VirtualBox using nawcom mod CD and it's booting without an iso image. I have VB set to Mac OS X 64-bit, and my host computer is 64-bit Windows 7. But when I boot into my virtual OS X, it is 32-bit. I can't seem to figure out a way to boot into 64-bit OS X. I have tried -force64, holding down the 6+4 keys, and the command line approach found here: http://macperformanceguide.com/SnowLeopard-64bit.html Would anyone be able to lend a hand? Thanks!
