How to update to 10.6.8 ?

Recommended Posts

Hello ! I've finally installed Snow Leopard 10.6.6i by Hazard, even my graphics card (ATI Radeon X1600) works :P


Anyway, I have tried to install XCode 4.2, but I can't do that because I need 10.6.7 ... So I guess I need to update my installation to 10.6.8. The problem is, I'm pretty new to this hackintosh stuff, so I don't know how to do that :) Any tips ?


I've tried running Software Update from apple menu, but now I can't boot :(

It's not a problem, I have made a backup, so I just need to restore it ;)


So any suggestions/tips on how to install the update ?



Thanks :)


My hardware:

MBO: GA-P31-DS3L motherboard

CPU: C2D E8400

GFX: ATI Radeon X1600 PCI-E

Usually Apple´s ComboUpdate is recommended for upgrading to 10.6.8.

You should re-install your bootloader after upgrading and you have to copy all kexts added manually to the upgraded OS.

In case you are using a Legacy Kernel, you will have to re-install that one too.


Maybe it would help posting a picture of the Hackintosh screen at system stall.

One of the experts may already know the reason.

thank you guys for helping :) It was kernel problem - it got upgraded and sleephelper.kext didn't work. I've just deleted that .kext and now everything works (except sleep, but I don't need that :P)
