Not yet! We AMD users are stuck in Lion (or Snow Leopard, if not having a FX series CPU and not having patience to tame a 32-bit buggy Lion; FX users have 64-bit support though).


Since you both have FX series AMD CPUs, maybe Lion satisfy your hackintosh needs for a while. Be sure to check this link: http://osx86.co/f100...d-kernel-t7687/ and stay tuned for news and tips.


I started here at insanelymac.com two topics, one for Atom and Mountain Lion (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=281072&st=0) and other for AMD and Mountain Lion (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=281450). The first one generated good results, thanks to the efforts of meklort who, by his experience and expertise in kernel binary patching, gave a working kernel to all us atom users (many thanks to him). Maybe the second one can attract the attention of a skillful kernel developer too, perhaps a pro-AMD developer, of the likes of Nawcom (the creator of the Mod CD) and AnV. Till there, we cross fingers and hope.
