Hello all !

I'm a french newbie on hackintosh steps and I want to share my first experience.




First time follow this tutorial : http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/


--> For the SMBios I have selected MacPro 4.1


Once you have your hack installed with your dsdt extracted and the

NullCPUPowerManagement.kext deleted ...


You need Network works first : Install my legacy --> Intel82574LZ8naD6.kext with kext utility

(it add the 0x10D38086 String to IOPCIMatch)


Now you need sound for the Asus MIO card : Install AppleHDA.kext with kext utility


If you have a bug with your ATI like a GHOST screen (two display but you have just 1 monitor connected) ... : Install ATI5000Controller.kext with kext utility

(if doesn't work ... do yourself :

http://www.tonymacx8...html#post512322 ).


The IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext is in order to have the good HD icon .. not like an external disk.


Here is my org.chameleon.Boot.plist :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<key>Graphics Mode</key>


PS : No modification on my DSDT extracted ...


Personnal tips :

On updates your kexts maybe erased like AppleHDA etc ...

My simple things is to do that on terminal :

(tild) $ sudo crontab -e

in this window put that :

#m h dom mon dow command
0 2 * * * cp -rf /patched-z8na/AppleHDA.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext
1 2 * * * chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext
0 3 * * * cp -rf /patched-z8na/ATI5000Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ATI5000Controller.kext
1 3 * * * chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ATI5000Controller.kext


You need a folder on root named : /patched-z8na

and both kext AppleHDA.kext and ATI5000Controller.kext inside...


What this lines do ? This is a simple task daily :

at 2:00 copy AppleHDA

at 2:01 change the owner of AppleHDA

at 3:00 copy ATI5000Controller

at 3:01 change the owner of ATI5000Controller


Have fun.

Thanks to real3x ;) poney poney++
