Hello everybody, i managed switching to original kernel my leopard by ToH with this guide http://www.digitmemo.com/articles/734/howt...-in-hackintosh/

 

THe only exception is that i had not AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext !

 

Everything works fine but i dont know how to activate speedstep, and i cant use any program to monitor cpu temperature. (I tried coreduo temp and Istat menu)

 

Any suggestion?

So there is no way to have speedstep with vanilla kernel?

How does speedstep works in real intel macs?

 

Good question. I really don't know how it works. I've been meaning to poke around the kernel code and see if I can make heads or tails of it, but I'm still a pretty novice coder and probably wouldn't know where to start.

Herrr... just another two questions :D

 

I followed this guide http://forum.osx86scene.com/viewtopic.php?...5d403bfb#p20492 and speedstep is working, but I have to use the patched kernel in the zip file. This is what uname gives to me Darwin Kernel Version 9.1.0: Fri Nov 16 14:50:43 SCT 2007; made by ToH:xnu-1228.0.2~1/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386 so it seems to be the toh kernel (or at least a patched version).

 

Why does it boot? Does every kernel boot with efi or toh kernel si "special" somehow?

 

If i want to do a future apple upgrade can I "simply" replace actual kexts and kernel with vanillas ones, update and then use a new Ss supporting kernel (Eventually)?

Is this correct?

 

Thank you again :D

 

ps: from the very first guide i posted there is a pack with vanilla kexts and kernel, could i use those?
