how do you upgrade to new kernel?

 

1. go to vitaly post about 10.4.8 kernel working, in there its his web page link, in his website theres a link to the download of the kernel , download it...

inside the zip file there are a file called AppleSMBbios.kext and a bin folder wich content the mach_kernel which is the new 10.4.8 kernel ready for core duos 2.

 

********UPDATED *******

HERE yopu can download VITALY KERNEL and SMBIOS for intel nx and sse3 processors

 

http://www.filefactory.com/file/cd939a/

 

here is for intel sse3 and NON NX procesors (requieres SMBIOS kext fromn the other link)

http://www.filefactory.com/file/f3c2a8/

 

(here is vitaly post, remeber putting FSB=your fsb speed in the boot parameters)

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=31456

 

IN A BREACKTROUGHT FOR ALL AMD FANS, THANKS TO DaemonES, this is his kernel based on Vitaly one but with some seriopus mods it can be used on intel and AMD, havent tried it yet but it shopuld work and the installation method is the same exactly. I RECOMMEND THIS KEXT FOR INTEL USERS TOO, ITS A MUST FOR THE ONES WICHA RE OVERCLOCKING THEIR MACHINES AND OLDER P4s

 

http://applelife.ru/developer/

 

This kernel info:

- Added high accuracy fsb detection on Intel ICH, nForce4 through PM-Timer.

- Added HPET emulation through TSC, if you have non-Intel ICH south bridge. Or you can enable hpet emulation manually, boot parameter nohpet=1

- Fixed bug with reboot during cpu initialization on some AMD systems. So you can try to boot in single mode (GUI must works on AMD + VMWare).

 

************************

 

 

2. go to http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/mac...pdateintel.html and download the combo installer (official one) DONT RUN IT YET

 

3. download onyx http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/OnyX.shtml

 

4. install onyx (onyx will let you unhide the old mach kernel)

 

5. fire onyx and in the appearance section enable show hidden files

 

6. fire the osx10.4.8 offical installer over your actual 10.4.7 install and install DONT RESET

 

7. after installing the combo update (the offical update) replace the applesmbios.kext in the system/library/extensions (first trash teh old one in that folder) it will require you to authenticate

 

8. go to system/library and remove the files extensions.kextcache and extensions.mkext, trash them, will ask for autheticate

 

9 goto the root of your HD and trash the mach_kernel, will ask for autheticate

 

10 copy the mach kernel you downloaded to the root of your hd (where the old_mach kernel was)

 

11 fire disk utilities in the utilities directory (under applications) and repair permision of your mac partition

 

12 u are ready to go restart the system

 

after it reboots

 

If you have ATI X1600 or superior install neopheus video installer for 10.4.8 new kernel and if you need so his RXXX80 lan installer

 

 

After that yopu will have a 99.9% mac system, fully upgraded with new kexts and frameworks and everything working flawlesly, so you can test Titan in your system...

 

i have done that and everything is screaming fast

 

Hurra VITALY AND DAEMONES

 

AND ALL THE GODD PPL OF THIS COMMUNITY

Can anybody confirm if this method is working on a Intel 965 chipset with Core 2 Duo ?

Jas crippled DVD works with my mainboard but it´s far from stable.

 

If this method works, can it also be applied to a 10.4.8 JaS Combo update installation with the old kernel, or has it to be 10.4.7 ?

would this work on a p4 sse2?

 

would the kernel from vitaliy need modifications before usable?

NO, this pair of kernles (Vitaly and DaemonES-Vitaly modifieed kernel) dont requiere any modifications.

 

No, they can't be used in sse2 procesors.

 

For 965 i would try DaeomES-Vitaly kernel, but really 965 is far from supported OSX platform.

i havent tried with semthex kernel, it should work exactly, BUT i have read sse2 kernel from smthex is really buggy, his sse3 kernel is as wonderfull as the one from vitaly, so i think they are replaceable, BUT semthex posted source code and that has to be compiled thats why im not using it.

OnyX crashed my computer... It was on a MacBook that it crashed, but nevertheless I got a kernel panic as soon as I told it to enable hidden files... If you don't want to use OnyX, just enter this into the terminal:

 

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

 

press enter

 

killall Finder

 

press enter

 

Once the Finder restarts, you'll see the kernel file!

 

To put it back, use:

 

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE

 

press enter

 

killall Finder

 

press enter
