What’s new?

Hey everyone,

I know that if you’ve posted comments recently that I’ve only just gotten back to you. I apologize, I am currently in finals mode at school and have a lot of work to do before the end of the semester. However, I would like to update you guys on some things.

The OS X Lion guide still hasn’t resumed production. I have received a lot of hate emails about it not being done before the school year started for me. It was a personal choice to not continue the guide, and I continue to hold to that stance. This upcoming semester (in the Spring) is going to be harder than this one, so I don’t anticipate me resuming my progress. At the earliest, the guide MIGHT resume production in the summer. For my loyal followers, I appreciate your patience and understanding.

Secondly, if you guys didn’t know, I was formerly the moderator for the Asus Netbook section of the InsanelyMac forums. However, after consulting with some of the admins that I know very well, I was able to be promoted in the forums. I now moderate ALL the netbook sections of forums. Thank you all for your continuous support, because without you, I wouldn’t be in this position.

Finally, I wanted to let you know that I am currently building a new gaming desktop for myself. For those early followers, you’ll remember my first interaction with Hackintosh was with my old gaming desktop, which had an AMD processor and an ATI graphics card (making it hard to get OS X running on). The desktop is about 1/2 built right now, with only the processor and graphics cards waiting to be installed. Specs are as follows:
-Core  i7-2600k
-16gb DDR3-1600
-60GB SSD w/ 1TB 7200rpm Seagate, both SATA III
-Asus Maximus IV Extreme (rev 3) motherboard
-Three EVGA GTX 460 graphics cards (each with 1GB GDDR5 memory)

Once I get this desktop, I will donate a 250gb SATA I drive to see if I can run hackintosh on it, in my very little free time.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for benchmarks on the new desktop coming soon!

Hackintosh 10.6.7 Update (Info on how to if you NEED to update)

Hey Guys,

I know a lot of you are looking for this site to provide info on how to update your hackintosh to 10.6.7. As of right now, there are ways to upgrade to 10.6.7. However, I am waiting for the release of the 10.6.7 legacy kernel, which will provide the best performance for your hackintosh. If you are in DIRE need of upgrading to this software update, you can follow the way you upgraded to 10.6.6 (by using the original 10.6.5 kernel) and backing up your kexts, etc. I would advise you to wait, though, because you will get better performance once the Legacy Kernel is released.

 

Thanks,
TechnoTalk
