Asus 1005hab (works for 1005ha) Snow Leopard Install Guide

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I just created a BRAND NEW SNOW LEOPARD INSTALL GUIDE for Snow Leopard, installing on version 10.6.0 and upgrading to 10.6.5. Please head over to:

 

http://technotalkblog.wordpress.com

 

you will find parts 1-5 on there about how to get everything working, including stock wifi!

 

Thanks,

Marugby123

 

 

 

Part 1 (Preparing USB/Computer) http://bit.ly/fauo4F

 

Part 2 (Installing Snow Leopard) http://bit.ly/fInHHU

 

Part 3 (First Boot/Installing Kexts) http://bit.ly/ekfT47

 

Part 4 (Updating to 10.6.4/10.6.5 with updated Kernel) http://bit.ly/ewxqmt

 

Part 5 (Tips and Tricks/Sound & Brightness shortcuts) http://bit.ly/gwfLW1

 

Those are the direct links to the different pages to make your lives easier. The real URL links are extremely long, so I shortened them with bit.ly

 

UPDATE: NOW UPDATE TO 10.6.7! http://bit.ly/dX5ZPy

Hi, thanks for the guide. I got up to the updating from 10.6.0 to 10.6.4

 

4) Now open terminal and type the following commands

 

*sudo -s (and then enter password)

*cd /

*mv mach_kernel mach_kernel_1062

*cp ~/Desktop/mach_kernel_atom /

*mv /mach_kernel_atom mach_kernel

*chown 0:0 mach_kernel

 

Followed it exactly (excluding the *) but I got a kernel panic saying I have to restart the computer. Whats up with that? Is it meant to say something after each command, like success or something? I entered the commands and then it just kept repeating with bash 3.4#: over and over...

 

Is there a manual way of doing this instead of using terminal? Like literally moving it through folders etc.

 

I went into verbose mode and it says that sk.triaxis.ext.SleepEnabler(1.0.0) and "version mis-match between kernel and CPU".

 

EDIT: Spent an hour reading on the forums and it says I have to remove the 10.6.0 SleepEnabler before restarting and updating to 10.6.4 SleepEnabler otherwise I would get a kernel panic. All these 1005ha guides never mentioned anything about removing SleepEnabler. :)

When you are typing in the Terminal coding, you are not supposed to include the "*" in the code, thus your kernel panic. The sleepenabler kext didn't effect me in any way, I never had to back it up or remove it or anything. Unfortunately, you are probably going to have to reinstall 10.6.0 and redo that. There is no way for you to manually move the kernel /properly/ because of the way it is hidden in the hard drive. Make sure you put the the mach_kernel_atom file on your desktop first before doing any of that scripting. Report back with any details/problems

"The “*” above are not what you type into terminal, they are just bullet points."

just do not include those in your coding

That guy does a very risky way of updating to 10.6.5. Plus if you read the comments, some of them are having problems with their wifi. I havent had any problems with my wifi

Yeah I know, I did it without the *, but I still got a kernel panic. The kernel panic said something about sleepenabler and that my cpu was mismatched with the kernel. I moved the mach_kernel_atom to my desktop and then opened applications > utilities > terminal and then punched in those commands. I didn't close terminal after punching in chown 0:0 mach_kernel and then restarted. After that I got a kernel panic.

 

Also, how do I get the ethernet to work?

The ethernet should have been installed via the "AttansicL1eEthernet.kext" in the System/library/extensions folder on the downloaded package. I have attached the kext to this post as well.

 

You also should close down Terminal when you are done doing all the coding, then return to the Combo Update Installer and use the "Restart" button from there.

Okay, I understand why I get kernel panic. I re-read your guide and it says to use my_hackinstaller_1.1 during 1st boot. Then I read the myhack website (it says 1.1 allows you to run sleepenabler 10.6.0-10.6.4).

 

I then realised I accidentally used the old my_hackinstaller 1.0 RC5 from maceee.blogspot.com and this is probably why I am getting kernel panics.

Yeah, you have to use myhackinstaller 1.1. I did it the backwards way. I had myhackinstaller 1.0 on my SD card and then i used myhackinstaller 1.1 on the system but the fact is that you still have to use myhackinstaller 1.1 for the entire system install.

That means I have to remake my usb installer because I used maceee's guide's 1.05 RC. Man...

 

Do I have to? Can't I just use my current 1.05 RC on the USB, then on the system install I use your 1.1 myhack?

 

Getting the usb boot was a real pain, took me 4 hours since I didn't have a mac, I had to put snow leopard on a slow pentium 4 and restore the image to my usb.

I mean, I still have myhack_installer_1.0 RC5 on my SD card, but I think as long as you use the 1.1 installer on your hard drive afterward, it should be ok. Thats what I did. Report back your results and I will put in a section of your findings in my guide :)

Success. 10.6.4 works, used the myhack 1.1 installer instead of 1.05RC from maceee.blogspot.com installing to hard drive. Everything works :)

 

Not going to update to 10.6.5. I don't want to go through the trouble. Its finally working ;)

Glad everything is working. The 10.6.5 update isn't that much more effort though. Just download it, backup the 2 graphics kexts and the wifi kext, install it, put the new kernel on your desktop, run the terminal coding, restart, copy the kexts back in, pfix, restart. Done. I recommend it because 10.6.4 on my macbook pro caused some video problems and 10.6.5 updates were focused on graphics quality so its better.

I'll try sometime later, when I get settled into Mac after like 14 years of Windows.

 

Btw, how do I get battery to work? I'm on 1gb 1005ha

 

Also, for the spark program. Is it spark version 3.0b9? or it doesn't really matter? And do I need to do any pfix after installing Spark or is just install and then finished?

The spark program you want to use 3.09b. And you only run pfix to get the kexts working, its basically a codeline way of using the program Kext Helper b7. So, no, you don't have to run pfix after installing spark. Pfix should only be run after restoring backed up kexts after an update (so if they released a 10.6.6 and you updated to that, etc).

 

As far as the battery meter, thank you for bringing that up, I forgot to add that in my tutorial, since I'm on 2gb of ram (which i recommend upgrading, because its worth it). I will post this tonight, but heres what you do:

 

edit your DSDT file and change the following...

 

 

CODE

OperationRegion (BIOS, SystemMemory, 0x7F7AE064, 0xFF)

***THIS is what it is for 2gb systems, don't use this code***

 

to

 

CODE

OperationRegion (BIOS, SystemMemory, 0x3F7AE064, 0xFF)

***This is what you want to change it to. This is for 1gb systems***

 

for information on how to edit your DSDT file, visit http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/DSDT

I personally have no had to edit this file, so I really don't know a lot about it. Still post problems and such that you have and I will try to resolve it

I've read that some people experience a buggy battery meter with it only displaying up to 93% maximum, do you also suffer from this?

Nope. I don't have anything like that. My battery meter works fine

I don't remember installing a brightness kext. I can't change my brightness.

 

Please advise me of your netbook model, as well as the hardware in it. When you install the myhack_installer_1.1 as well as the AppleIntelGMA950.kext that should give the brightness the ability to change. Are you sure you're using the FN-F# keys to change the brightness?

Plain simple 1005ha. No letters after it.

 

Comes with 250gb hdd, 1gb 667 ram, windows 7 starter and atom n270

 

Then the brightness should work after you run pfix and restore the graphics kexts. are you using the FN+F# keys to adjust the brightness?

It doesn't work at all. It's running about medium brightness, I'm not too bothered about it, but it would be nice if it worked. Almost everything else with fn key works.

 

Should I replace my current graphics kext? Would I get a kernel panic? I don't want to go through the trouble of reinstalling, unless you know how I can back it up. I've already installed pretty much everything, iwork, firefox, vlc, utorrent etc. I'm going to buy a 2gb ram stick tomorrow and hopefully my battery will be 100% functional.

 

Maybe I can try downloading a program called Shades for mac, which changes brightness? Do I need to do any pfix for .prefpane files? I'm just trying to avoid any kernel panics because reinstalling is so time consuming.

I wouldn't recommend reinstalling graphics kexts unless you're updating or not concerned about a kernel panic/reinstall. Shades i've used on my real mac, but it relies on the main brightness of the screen to begin with, and just puts like a colored film over everything to dim it. It doesn't really help if you screen is too dim. If you screen is too bright.

 

You can also always do it manually by going to System Preferences>Display and theres a slider there to adjust it

Hello. I followed your guide, but my install always freezes at "Time Remaining: About 18 minutes". I followed your guide perfectly and formatted everything correctly. I am using a SanDisk 8gb FD. Any suggestions?

 

One more thing. I used a Snow Leopard 10.6 ISO file that I downloaded instead of using a retail cd. I put the iso right onto the flash drive using the rescue (or restore, can't remember) feature from disc utility.
