Hackintosh netbooks working with Intel's new Atom n450 codename Pine Trail?

Recommended Posts

I am doing an iPhone application for my senior project, and I obviously need some form of OS X. Due to my broke college student-ness, I was going to buy a Dell mini 10v and put OS X since I don't have the money for a mac. I recently read on cnet that Intel is releasing their newer Pine Trail Atom processors within the next few weeks and was wondering if you guys think that someone will try to get OS X to work on those. The n450 is faster and has better power consumption, so I would rather wait if I could, but I only need it for OS X. The Pine Trail has the CPU and graphical functionality on the same chip, so I didn't know if it was possible. I did notice, however, that the Dell mini 10 is not compatible to be a hackintosh computer due to the graphics chipset it has in it, which is why I was forced to look at the mini 10v's. Tell me what you guys think, should I just stick with the 10v? Or will someone definitely create support for this new family of processors?

Thanks guys! :(

 

Note: The n450 is going to be released on netbooks in December for the holiday season and no later than early January. Check it out http://news.cnet.com/8301-1001_3-10403768-92.html

There is a kernel (snow legacy or legacy snow) that the creator claims will boot a toaster. Not sure if it will work for that processor, but you coul contact him and ask

the problem will be the graphic card. Pretty sure it wont work. sorry

 

There is no OS X support for Intel integrated graphics better than an X3100.

So it looks like graphics card will be a GMA 3150. Is that a deal-breaker?

The 3150 is an adaptation of the 3100 that worked, so I'd love to know for sure if it can work. These new machines are quite a bit better number-wise (yeah they're still very slow!) than the Atom+GMA950 combo, and I like my Eee PC a lot...

 

If anyone tries it (and tries to work on it because the integrated graphic core will be quite different), I'd love to know.

Maybe hex-edit the X3100 compatible drivers to accept the X3150 graphics adapter? Take a look at NighTalon's very short script (27ae something, I believe) that does this for the Intel 950 drivers so the 945 chipset so common on netbooks is accepted.
