Discorocker has compared selected files from three different Dev Kits, and after doing some fancy work with hashes and hex editors, discovered that the files in each dev kit are marked with unique "signatures" (6 bytes long).
At this point, we have no idea what these markers in only a few of the files means. These could be actual signatures that are a function of the TPM. Or it could be something random done at installation. At this point we don't know much more than that, but I thought I'd update everyone! If I've missed any info, feel free to add on.


Rosetta Kernel uses TCPA

By Brickster, in OSx86,

We found out that the Rosetta kernel uses TCPA/TPM DRM.
Currently their are no ways known to get the GUI working on non-Apple hardware, with this protected kernel.
Even with a SSE3 enabled cpu you will never get the GUI.

I am going to purchase a Developers Transition Kit from Apple; however, I don't have the money to do it on my own. Therefore I am asking this wonderful community for some help. Every month I get about $200 from my paychecks that I get to spend on whatever I want. Most of this $200 a month will go toward the Dev kit. I am only asking for even a few cents.
Thanks, and everyone that donates, will get an email from me as soon as I get the Dev Kit.

Signing up 7 people will get me $550 cash, and the Dev Kit. Thanks DeathChill
