Hello,

I'm new to Hackintosh and want to update it to 10.5.4. I need a Combo Update for AMD all that I have seen are for Intel only. And I also have only seen them for 10.5.3. Is there one for 10.5.4? I use the Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd.iso

search for the amd 10.5.3 update package, then theres a 10.5.4 for amd which is around 80mb's, sadly theres no amd 10.5.4 combo package

if there was one it should include modbin kernel :blink:

i'd gladly make one but ...i dont know how to package, to make .pkg's

You can use Zephyroth's ASU (AMD Software Update) v0.5. Works just like the Apple Software Update only if checks and patches the updates for AMD CPU's before it installs them. Should work for you. Worked fine for me... I've used it to install both the 10.5.3 update and the 10.5.4 update. (but, as always, you should make sure you have a backup or make an image of your OS partition before you do any updates...)

 

find it at infinitemac.com

it only works if you install 10.5.3 first and 10.5.4 second, do not do combo update with this. If you do it, it will work but, your system will be as slow as a turtle. I know this from first hand experience :whistle:. now i'm downloading each update seperately from the bay:P

This might be a bit off-topic, but I have a similar question.

 

I managed to get a TOH 10.5.1 working, after trying a lot of releases.

With Kalyway, leo4all, I'd get an efi message that would reboot the dvd continuously. therefore I managed to get this toh one.

 

Wich method should I use to uptade my osx?

 

Should I dl combo updates in this sequence:

 

10.5.1 to 10.5.2 / 10.5.2 to 10.5.3 / 10.5.3 to 10.5.4 ?

 

Or should I try the ASU method?

 

I read that most of them have the EFI thing. Should I worry about any specific update method?

 

 

Thanks in advance,

Make a disk image of your current working install and try ASU 0.5.

 

I installed Zephyroth 10.5.1 on my 780G motherboard - then Chameleon EFI for Phenom (since it uses a Phenom 9550) - then I ran ASU. 10.5.3 was the current system update available from Apple at the time. (ASU downloads the Apple Updates (just like the Apple "Software Update" program) and checks and patches the files for AMD CPU's before it installs the updates...) After the update to 10.5.3, I also installed the 9.3 modbin kernel. (Chameleon EFI may work for you also where EFI_v8 may not...)

 

Updating from 10.5.1 to 10.5.3 worked just FINE on my 780G machine. When the 10.5.4 update was released by Apple, I used ASU again to successfully apply that update. After the 10.5.4 update I installed the 9.4 modbin kernel...

 

(ASU is a "replacement" or substitute for Apple's automatic software updater. It'll try to install ANY available update - itunes, quicktime, garageband, ilife, frontrow, blah, blah, blah... SO, you don't need any "combo updates" - you don't need to download any torrent. It IS still in development so it doesn't work perfectly in every situation but, it's always worked for me (I have 3 working OSx86 computers)

I noticed a weird thing after running the ASU.

 

Everything installed perfectly (It took a lot of time in deed) until I rebooted (I managed to get two extra ide HD's).

 

I ran the disk utility, formated them, and then just for precaution, I ran the disk verification on the Leopard HD and it outputed a ton of errors.

 

Tried to repair the HD and It said It wouldn't be possible.

 

 

I'm installing leopard again on a bigger HD and as soon as I get all the kexts I need I will create a backup image.

 

Will post updates to my installation process here!

 

 

Thanks for the help!
