A coule of questions, please help!, Cookies will be rewarded ^^
Hi all, i'm new here. I've never used a MAC or made my own Hackintosh be4, so plz forgive my noobness. I have read all the FAQs and basics and done a fair bit of research, I'm just about to get started but have a couple of questions that I couldn't find any answers/solutions for, so please bare with me here. Ok, so here're my questions:
1. My main purpose of installing a Hackintosh is so I can use the iOS SDK to develope iOS apps/games, as the SDK only works on a MAC. Will I be able to use that (assuming I got Hackintosh working), because from what I know so far, there're a few files that can't be run on a Hackintosh, even they're made for the MAC.
2. Where do I download KEXT files?? There're many different builds for Hackintosh, people use different motherboards, ethernet cards, graphics cards etc. I've been searching around and couldn't find KEXT files for the hardwares that I use, is there a site to download them? The only one I could find is this:
Downloads - Kexts.com
however, it doesn't contain any of the KEXT files that match my hardwares....
3. After each upgrade, we must replace the KEXT files right? So if i'm not wrong, they're kinda like drivers, which means there'll be different versions of course. So this kinda relates to my 2nd question, where do we get KEXT updates, and are they version specific? If YES, does that mean whenever we update OSX, e.g. from 10.6.4 to 10.6.5, then we have to replace the KEXT files with a newer version?*
4. This is the guide I'll be using, I've already finished reading it and it seems very easy and well explained, and it's pretty up to date as well as it was posted on 25th October 2010, which is only 3 weeks ago:
anyway, in that guide it was shown how to install up to OS X v10.6.4, but right now the current version available is v10.6.5. So basically, do i just update to v10.6.4, and then update to v10.6.5 and then apply the KEXT files and then I can restart?? Or do i have to restart after updating to v10.6.4, and then update to v10.6.5? I ask this because for Windows, sometimes you have to restart for the upgrade to complete or take effect, before you can install a newer upgrade over the old one, but since i've never used a MAC, I don't know if this is the same or not.
So that's all my questions, I'm still a little confused about some terms like DSDT, I did read them but haven't seen any guides mentioning anything about it, I just wanna follow simple instructions to get this done, just like jailbreaking an iDevice with one touch of a button.....
anyway i'm planning to use these hardwares for my Hackintosh:
Pentium 4 3.4Ghz (Prescott SL7KM)
ASRock G41M-S3 motherboard
Corsair 2GB DDR3 ram
I know the Pentium 4 will work since it supports SSE3 & SSE2, but for the motherboard i'm not so sure, and I couldn't find any KEXT files for my 8800GT either.......anyway please help with those questions, I will reward you a giant cookie if you do, and will be very much appreciated.
just wanted to correct my self i just realised that i miss understood the kext quest. Once you have everything stable u don't have to keep looking for kext but to update the Os x you do need it kext. for instance, right now we are at 10.6.5 but the kext update isn't out yet (that im aware of) and 10.6.4 update with a kext update is available (10.4.0). And u would install the kernel first then the update. see link:Hazard Leopard • View topic - How-To: Update SL 10.6.x to 10.6.5
