And yes, this is that post that has something to do with my random hackintosh thought post.
I'm testing if we could possibly have VoodooHDA fully migrated to EFI's /Extra/Extensions/ moving forward with 10.6.4 update.
If you're willing to test, here's what to do: BACK UP YOUR SYSTEM FIRST AND CREATE A BOOTER!
What You Need:
- Download Mac OS X v10.6.4 Combo Update
- Download HPM311DP_061810HF6RC3.pkg.
- Download Kext Utility v2.3
- Booter (10.6.4 compatible): Burn MowgliBook's BootCD-altPS2.iso or put it in a MultiBootISO USB flashdrive.
What To Do:
1) Go to /System/Library/Extensions/ and delete VoodooHDA.kext. Also make sure that you don't have any of the ff. kexts in there:
- VoodooHDA (which you should've already deleted)
2) Download and run Kext Utility to fix permissions in /System/Library/Extensions. Just double click the app and provide your user password.
3) In Terminal; issue these commands:
- $ sudo -s
- $ pmset -a hibernatemode 0
- $ rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage
4) Use Disk Utility to repair permissions on your installation volume; i.e. Macintosh HD.
5) Install Mac OS X v10.6.4 Combo Update; DO NOT RESTART YET.
6) Install HPM311DP_061810HF6RC3.pkg.
7) Restart your Mini 311.
Tips: I recommend using verbose mode on during the initial restart (after installing HF6RC3 above). The proceeding boots can be left as is; graphical/non-verbose mode.
What to look out for:
- Kernel Panics
- blank screen on wake from sleep
- overall stability
*To help you get out of sticky situations, i.e. system won't boot, use the Booter you created to boot up your Mini.
