You beat me to it, was just about to post saying 10.8.2 final installs with no issues other than the usual need to reinstall the AppleHDA.kext :)

Are there any issues with patched AppleIntelCPUPM.kext?

No idea, I've never had to patch that kext.

Andy, are you using NullCPUPM or modified BIOS?

Andy,

 

Massive thanks as usual for your work. However you should be aware that your latest package is not patched for MBR partitions, and I had to manually patch the OSInstall framework and replace OSInstall.mpkg to make the installer work on my hybrid MBR/GUI partition.

 

Cheers

Yup, I figured it's easy enough for people to lookup if they want to install to mbr. Including that patch limits the usefullness of the usb installer for future versions so I decided not to include it.

Fair enough. Everything is working fine on my install except one thing: Safari iCloud tabs aren't working, and there isn't any info on google besides Apple's very basic troubleshooting steps (which don't work).

 

It's working between my macbook pro and my iphone tough, so maybe it's a hackintosh issue.

 

edited: I meant Safari iCloud tabs

If sleep doesnt work, try deleting CalDigitFastIO.kext and CalDigitUSBxHCI.kext after installing the P8P67 package installer and adding sleepenabler.kext 10.7x - 10.8x

Just upgraded to 10.8.2. No problems except audio stopped working, easily fixed by replacing AppleHDA.kext.

 

I installed 10.8.2 on my today because 10.8 was to buggy. After installation i was not able to make my sound work ( being detected) anymore.

 

What did you replace the AppleHDA.kext with? I tried to use the one of my 10.8 installation but it did not have any effect. (everything else works fine.)

 

Thanks for your help

Just run the package again - sometimes the sound wont stick on the the first run.

How do you find the motherboard revision? All Asus can tell me is that it's Rev B3, which I already know. On the site it says Rev 3.0 boards have NEC USB 3.0 controller, and Rev 3.1 has ASMedia, but mine is Renasas. I bought my board before they discovered the SATA issue and sent it in for repair/replacement (hopefully the latter). It says Rev 1.01 on the board itself.

 

Thanks Andy for all your help.

 

Apparently, the only difference between Rev 3.0 and 3.1 is the USB 3.0 controller, as indicated above. Renasas merged with NEC, so apparently I have Rev 3.0? I don't know any other way of telling...

 

Update: I flashed the BIOS with the modified 3.0, no problems. After deleting NullCPUPowerManagement and clearing cache (~/Caches/), sleep and speedstep still don't work...

 

Tried patching AppleCPUPowerManagement via Uni.beast ML and installing SleepEnabler, which just results in a KP.

Try installing it with Uni.beast. Audio > Realtek > Without DSDT > ALC892

 

Thank you.

 

But it did't work. Am i the only one with this problem?

Thank you.

I also had this same problem, several months ago I ended up breaking my system with a bogus driver, now I get the grey screen when I start up. I gave up after that :(

 

 

My boot loader also sometimes doesn't allow the USB to work, so I have to reset my computer 3-4 times before I can change the boot selection to boot to my windows drive. I'm kinda lost now because I haven't thought about this is such a long time. If you get it working, I'll be watching so I can try the same thing.

Anyone know if the 1tb partition limit still exists with chameleon? Haven't found anything written recently saying so either way.

 

Either way the limit only applies to the boot partition correct? I could have a second 3 tab drive all one partition if I wanted to?

As far as I know the limit was only on the boot partition so you 'should' be fine.

Are you using a 3,000 series bios? As far as I know the latest bios versions will break audio and last i checked there was no fix - yet another reason NOT to use those bios versions!!!

Thanks for making my system happens, Andy. Also, many thanks to contributors for creating hackintosh kexts and bootloader.

I'm currently running ML 10.8.2 with Andy's BIOS and audio from MB (No DSDT). Everything seems to be working in order, I have not had time to test DVD player because most people say it would crash.

Also, I am looking forward to upgrade my graphic card where it supports dual 1080p screen; where I do not see lag in Diablo 3.
