    You'll need:

    My SL 10.6.1 Package [http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/83940/NB205_SL_Package.zip]
    myHack 1.0 RC3 installer [myHack Blog Archive myHack Installer 1.0 RC3 Released]
    CamTwist driver [http://allocinit.com/images/b/b6/CamTwist-2.1.dmg]
    Another mac to build the USB installer drive

    Procedure:

    1) From a working OSX installation, restore Snow Leopard (10A432) iso to your USB device that is formatted with an MBR partition table.
    Disk Utility > Partition > Change to MBR under options > Format

    2) Use the myHack Installer 1.0 RC3 to prep USB installer device for booting, taking care to:
    - *FIRST* click "Change Install Location" & point it to your USB device
    - Click Customize & leave everything as it is EXCEPT ALSO select PS2Controller
    - On USB device, browse to and delete IOATAFamily.kext from /system/library/extensions (this will keep us from a kernel panic when booting from this USB device)

    To delete the IOATAFamily.kext you must first show hidden files in OS X. You can use this terminal command to do so.

    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    killall Finder

    Then to turn hidden files back off, use the same command but change TRUE to FALSE.

    4) Make sure your NB205 BIOS has AHCI and Legacy USB enabled. Boot, hitting F12 & booting from SL USB installation media. This may take a few minutes to boot up & then graphics will have low resolution. This is OK for now.

    6) Run Disk Utility from the menu & format destination disk as GUID / Mac OS Extended Journaled. Then Install -- taking care to Customize and remove printers and languages first. Add quicktime 7, because it's better than the funky new one.

    7) Installation will eventually stop around 7 minutes left and then say that it failed. This is OK! Keep on going:

    8) Now, here's the trick. We need to delete /System/Library/Extensions/IOATAFamily.kext again -- but this time from our new install. I booted back into the SL installer from USB, ran Terminal from the menu, browsed to the freshly installed drive under /Volumes, and deleted the kext. (Yes, we lose ATA support, but it's no big deal for us on the NB205 and MUCH better than the kernel panic you'll get otherwise. Your internal SATA and external USB will still work flawlessly.)

    To delete the IOATAFamily.kext from your new install use this terminal command.

    rm -r "/Volumes/(Name of your hard drive)/System/Library/Extensions/IOATAFamily.kext"

    in my case the name of my hard drive was "Hackintosh HD" but you get the general idea. Be sure to put the rm -r and not just rm because a IOATAFamily.kext is not a file, it is qualified as a directory. Also, the quotes " " around the file path are needed, don't forget them!

    8) Now reboot, but use the bootloader from your USB media again (hitting F12 and picking the USB device). Then at the bootloader's graphical menu, select your freshly installed drive to startup.

    9) Booting will be very slow due to lack of a proper kextcache. Graphics will be low-res. Run through the SL setup wizard.

    10) Run myHack 1.0 RC3 again, and install it to your new SL drive
    - customizing w/ PS2Controller, and DISABLING FrameBufferDisabler.kext
    - Then, without rebooting:
    - Add GREY and YELLOW kexts from my package to /Extra/CustomExtensions
    - Add the RED smbios.plist and com.apple.boot.plist into /Extra, overwriting the ones that are there. This makes the machine masquerade as a MacBookAir & therefore enables remote disc, and it supposedly emulates the GMA950 better.
    - Open Terminal & run 'sudo /pfix'. It was dropped into the root of your drive by the myHack installer. Follow the directions to fix your permissions & rebuild your kextcaches.

    12) Reboot, enter BIOS and disable Legacy USB support (not sure if this is required). Then boot to your new working 10.6 installation!

    13) Install VoodooHDA prefpane from package by double-clicking it.

    14) Run Software Update and install 10.6.1. (if desired)

    15) System will come back up with low-res graphics. Use the included PURPLE 10.6.1 AppleIntelGMA950.kext and AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kexts.

    To install the .kexts correctly you cannot just drop them in the folder, use these terminal commands so that you don't get a kernel panic.
    Go to the file at /System/Library/Extensions and delete the two kexts with the same name first, than I put the purple .kexts on my desktop to make things easier. Do the same and then these commands should work.

    Open Terminal and type:

    sudo -s
    sudo mv /Users/(Your Username)/Desktop/AppleIntelGMA950.kext /System/Library/Extensions
    sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA950.kext
    sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA950.kext

    sudo mv /Users/(Your Username)/Desktop/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext /System/Library/Extensions
    sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
    sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext

    (I couldn't get it to work by putting them in /Extra/CustomExtensions). Then, REMOVE all the GRAY graphics kexts we originally placed into /Extra/CustomExtensions.

    16) Start Terminal & run 'sudo /pfix'. Run it TWICE. Repair disk permissions with Disk Utility. Reboot to fixed graphics.

    17) Drop the GREEN patched dsdt.aml file into /Extra. This should enable proper sleep, lid closing detection, HPET for CPU power mgmt. Reboot.

    18) Installing 10.6.2
    Open Terminal and type: defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE and press enter
    then type: killall Finder and enter

    this will show hidden files in OS X

    19) Go to the disk where you installed snow leopard and copy the hidden
    mach_kernel to a usb stick

    20) Run the 10.6.2 Update BUT DO NOT REBOOT

    21) After its done leave the installer open where it says "Installation Complete"

    22) Go to your Disk and delete the mach_kernel (NOT THE ONE IN THE USB STICK!)

    23) Then COPY the one from your usb stick to the disk

    24) Open Terminal and type:
    Open Terminal and type: defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE and press enter
    then type: killall Finder and enter
    Then: sudo /pfix

    25) reboot

    26) Again use the included PURPLE 10.6.1 AppleIntelGMA950.kext and AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kexts.

    To install the .kexts correctly you cannot just drop them in the folder, use these terminal commands so that you don't get a kernel panic.
    Go to the file at /System/Library/Extensions and delete the two kexts first, than I put the purple .kexts on my desktop to make things easier. Do the same and then these commands should work.

    Open Terminal and type:

    sudo -s
    sudo mv /Users/(Your Username)/Desktop/AppleIntelGMA950.kext /System/Library/Extensions
    sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA950.kext
    sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA950.kext

    sudo mv /Users/(Your Username)/Desktop/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext /System/Library/Extensions
    sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
    sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext

    27) Start Terminal & run 'sudo /pfix'. Run it TWICE.
    Repair disk permissions with Disk Utility.
    Reboot to fixed graphics.

    Done, Enjoy.
    WORKING 10.6.2 INSTALLATION WITH FIXED GRAPHICS

    After installing all the software updates ethernet and sound might not work
    To fix this reinstall the YELLOW files into Extra/Extensions
    Than in terminal run sudo /pfix
    reboot.

    Optional:

    - Disable hibernate w/ 'sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0' and 'sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage'
    - Re-enable legacy USB support in BIOS -- it's no longer an issue for sleep like it was in Leopard
    - Install CamTwist driver for Skype video (note: CamTwist app must be running at the same time as Skype)
    - Enable enhanced speedstepping CPU power management with CoolBook [http://www.coolbook.se/]
    - Change or remove select graphics from /Extra/Themes/Default to customize or ditch myHack's defaults


    More info and caveats:

    - SoundSource is very useful to easily switch between audio outputs [Rogue Amoeba | Freebies: Free software for Mac OS X/]
    - The dsdt.aml was made for BIOS v1.20, not sure if it will work for newer BIOS [Update: BIOS v1.60 works just fine]
    - USB7 will probably remain OFF after sleep. This is due to a DSDT setting that allows sleep to work. I'm sure sure what USB7 is though, maybe bluetooth?
    - Sound has static noise in it after waking from sleep
    - The 27ae.sh script is used to patch the GMA950 graphics kexts when Apple upgrades them again (For 10.6.2, etc…)

    help me please
    where is the point number 3 of this guide?
    how can I use My SL 10.6.1 Package and CamTwist driver ?
    thanks

    Never noticed it, but there is no No. 3

    Its in the guide where to put the .kexts. They mainly go in Extras/Extehsions but some go elsewhere, such as in the Extras folder.

    What doesn't work:
    - WiFi.
    - Sound.
    - Webcam (tried on Photo Booth and iChat)
    - Ethernet.
    - Trackpad clicking: you can only move the pointer with the trackpad, you need to use the "buttons" below it to click.
    - Microphone.
    - Sleep (keep sleeping and coming back in a loop until you open the lid).

    Requirements:
    1. Snow Leopard disc or image
    2. 8GB Flash drive (or external HD)
    3. NetBookMaker (link)

    Steps:
    1. Format and partition your flash drive as Mac OS X (Journaled), and do not forget to set it as MBR, not GUID.
    2. Restore your Snow Leopard .dmg file to the flash drive, this process may take a few minutes.
    3. After finishing the restore, run your NetBookMaker application, select your Flash drive you just had formatted and apply.
    -- Done! Your flash drive is ready to boot.
    4. Boot your Toshiba, enter the BIOS menu by hitting F2, make sure your Legacy USB is enabled and Sata Controller is set to Compatibility, and not AHCI.
    Actually I don't think this last change affect the installation in any way, but I my installation was not running before I made a few changes, and that was one of them.
    5. Restart your computer with the Flash drive on USB, hit F12 to choose the drive to boot, select your flash drive and wait, there is a 9 in 10 chances that it's going to enter the Installation menu, if it doesn't, try again.
    6. Format and partition your HD using Disk Utility to install Snow Leopard. I've partitioned it as 20GB for Windows and 140GB for Snow Leopard. Partition as GUID this time.
    7. Before start the installation, be sure to customize it and REMOVE the printer support and other languages, you can keep the fonts and X11 only.
    8. Start the installation (your installation crashed? read error01 below).
    9. Installation ok, it'll restart and bring you the welcome screen.
    10. Do the basic setup and that's it, you have Snow Leopard on your Toshiba.

    PS: It's important to remember that this will only install Snow Leopard on your netbook, there's a lot of things which aren't working, as soon as I get them working, I'll add more steps.

    PS: I've formatted it again today, got my installation crashed two times, one with Kernel Panic and other with the "evil restart" screen, but then I setup the BIOS and customized correctly as told above and I'm with the Snow Leopard again. What I do need now is a bunch of kexts where I don't even know where to look for and make everything work.

    Known errors:
    error01:
    If you've followed the steps correctly, the installation should run ok, then it'll do the automatic restart and bring you up to the welcome video. BUT there is a fair chance that your install crashes, either by a Kernel Panic or the "evil restart" screen. If it crashes, you'll find that your flash drive is not recognized as a bootable device again. The thing I did to make it recognizable was removing the flash drive, adding any other flash drive on USB, hitting F12 to show the boot options (your new flash drive may appear), remove the flash drive, put in your Snow Leopard flash drive again and it should be recognized after a reboot.
    And also, every time the installation crashes, it switches back to AHCI mode on Sata Controller, and I've always switched back to Compatibility.

    error02:
    I tried restarting the netbook a few times and noticed that it crashed during the boot once, I waited for the spinning wheel of death for 3 minutes and restarted it.

    And that's it:

    Thanks for the details explanation.Keep up the good guide!

    Default dsom

    hi there,

    for start: THANK YOU! to all of you, it's a very great work what you've doing here!

    i've set up my Toshiba nb200 with 10.6.2, almost everythings work just fine, except the webcam that work just with with camtwist and low brightness and keyboard has no proper keyb settings (alt is on windows key and vice-versa), my only problem is enabling the "Two Finger Scrolling" with my ALPS touchpad.

    i found this link to a customized kext ( http://www.hackint0sh.org/f200/77504-33.htm#post432943 ) by wingzero619 but link is dead.. do you have a fresh link..?

    i have tried the kext of the pakage listed at page 8 of this thread (that way is the installation i follow), then i suceeded in enabling the touchpad pref panel (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lof...p/t142466.html), "tap to click" now works, but 2 finger scrolling is checked as enabled but won't work

    i'v also tried some ALPS kext for dell netbook but no luck for 2 finger scrolling..

    thank you

    You can remove the keys very easily and they snap back on just as easily too.
    I physically swapped my windows and alt keys because I'm used to a mac keyboard, and it comes much more naturally to me this way around. Not that I look at the keyboard much but it looks better

    Default Recap!

    Little Recap, with the installation listed here at page 8 and update till 10.6.2 those things still dont work (at least for me!):

    - VGA Output don't work
    - Nice Loud Sound Output (is worse that on win)
    - 2 Finger scrolling for ALPS version of touchpad
    - Sometimes Reboot fail and get stuck
    - Camera with Camtwist sucks (is dark..) and sometimes just don't work..
    - Still have to try Bluetooth
    - Wifi work if card only if replaced

    anything else?

    Just wondering.. do you think can i try install bootcamp to have a dual boot pc?
