Upgrade Your Hackintosh To Mac OS X 10.5.5!

September 15th, 2008

Apple / Mac, Leopard, OS X Updates

Get ready to unleash the fury of your inner Leopard with one of Apple’s biggest updates, Mac OS X 10.5.5. Weighing in at 321MB (Cool, huh?), there are dozens of bug fixes and additions to make this a real “worth while” update for your fully licensed official Mac or your Hack. You may start the drooling process now.

It took me a day to get all of my stuff together and pull this update off. I use my HackBook Pro in a production environment, which means I cannot be too far away from my Time Machine drive. As the excitement mounted, viewers of this blog had already dove into it — head first, and pulled it off with mixed results (Read the comments below for more information). A lot of what you did getting to 10.5.4 will save you some time because from what I’ve gathered by updating from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5, it’s mainly just copying over a few key kexts that get replaced with the update, repairing permissions, etc. etc.

Let’s begin!

1) First, download the update directly from Apple’s website. I’m not sure if it matters where you get it but this is how I did it. I’m sure Software Update is safe but don’t take my word for it. You can grab 10.5.5 at http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/macosx_updates/macosx1055update.html

2) Before you run the downloaded file, open up Terminal and type “sudo su -” without the quotes. Enter your user password and then type “while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done” without the quotes. Keep this window open while you run the downloaded update and install it. It should complete in a few minutes and ask you to reboot. Before you reboot, exit the Terminal script by holding down Ctrl and pressing X (Ctrl + X). Close Terminal and hit the button on the Update to reboot your computer.

3) Once you reboot your screen may go blank or your system might auto reboot. Don’t panic yet. Reboot the system again, this time booting with “-v -f -x” and let it do it’s thing. Your screen will probably still be blank. Let it run until there’s no more CPU or HDD activity. Reboot again with normal flags (-v -f) and let it go to sleep. Wake it up and you should be seeing the login window. If you auto login you can swipe your mouse over your hot corner (You kept that hot corner, right?) and you should see your desktop although it may appear unstable. Log out and back in. Boom!

4) Your wireless is dead, your battery doesn’t display and your sound isn’t as groovy as it used to be. Time to step back in time. Dig through your Extensions.bkup on your desktop and locate a few key kexts. Grab the latest version of Kext Helper b7 and prepare to do battle with permissions. Rather than re-patching, re-applying, etc. the steps we did in 10.5.4, we’re just going to copy over the good stuff we know worked before.

5) Fire up Kext Helper b7 and start dragging kexts into the window. Enter your password and click Advanced. You’ll want to make sure the following are displaying in Kext Helper b7: AppleHDA.kext, AppleACPIPlatform.kext, AppleAHCIPort.kext. Hit the install button and then hit Kext Permissions and Tag Cache Rebuild. Hell, hit them a couple times! Now close out of Kext Helper b7 and do the Disk Utility dance by repairing disk permissions a couple times. I ran it 3 times just to make sure. Your milage may vary.

6) Reboot. You should have everything but the battery meter. Download PowerManagement.bundle again and do your thing. Make sure you completely remove the old one (“rm -fr PowerManagement.bundle” in Terminal). Repair and reboot again. Alternatively you can back up your original PowerManagement.bundle from /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/PowerManagement.bundle.

This should work for everyone who is running 10.5.4 and possibly those running earlier versions of Kalyway’s DVD. These are as clear of instructions I can give and I must admit, they’re a little less user friendly than my original tutorial. Hopefully you’ve been following me on this blog and know a few things by now. Be sure to run Time Machine, Super Duper or Carbon Copy before you dive into this if you care about your files. After you upgrade to 10.5.5, there are some minor software updates awaiting you. Nothing major, all risk- and error-free.

While your milage may vary, the chances of you “hosing” your system is very slim. Even with a kernel panic, blank screen or spinning beach ball, not all is lost. Remember, this isn’t Windows Vista. You aren’t required to re-install for every little hiccup. Play with it, have fun, and post your success/failures here with screenshots.

NOTE: 10.5.5 doesn’t wake from sleep for some reason. Even after trying the usual methods. We may have to wait for a kernel patch or additional kext to restore it. I’ll start looking into the issue this weekend if nobody posts something here first.

    Hey guys!
    After updating from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5, my hackbook works beautifully! hehe
    I have only one question… Is there a way of enhancing the cam quality?

    Thanks for the great tutorial!

  2. Paul

    I kind of went from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5 without installing any of the fixes and stuff. Now I can’t seem to install them. Is there anyway of getting them to work without having already installed them in 10.5.4? I’m using a dell inspiron 1525, by the way.

  3. Vusi Twala

    I am at version 10.4.11. I just bought Pro Tools 8 LE and it requires version 10.5.5. Where do I start/ From version 10.5.4 or where?

  4. Thomas

    Now that you did this, check out our other guides on upgrading to 10.5.6, 10.5.7, and then 10.5.8.

  5. limdara

    Well, updating was a difficult issues. But I realised that the settings, System Preferences, Energy Saver. If you happen to update and screen hangs that is due to the Energy Saver, make sure it slides is on NEVER for both. It will solve some of the problem, I found that my computer hangs most of the time because of that, but now it runs perfectly. I hope this help some of you.

  6. Thomas

    Neal- Gparted Live is a linux-based Live CD that is probably one of the best partition editors on the market and on top of it all, its free. It supports HFS, NTFS, FAT, and about 20 other formats. If you want to split the HFS partition on your External Drive, just make sure to turn off Journaling before doing so. To do this, open Disk Utility, click on the partition on the left, hold down the Windows Key and click either File or Edit (I forget which one it is). Then click “Disable Journaling” and you should be good to go. After you have booted into Gparted, made the changes, and booted back into windows, its probably smart to reenable Journaling by once again launching Disk Utility, clicking on the partition on the left, and clicking the big green Hard Drive icon at the top of the window.

    Gparted can be found at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

  7. Neal

    Thanks, I may well try this….am probably going to have to partition my external drive into two small partitions…do you know of any good programs for this that way I can have one partition as a test, one as a 10.5.4 backup (which is fully stable and working).

    If not I’ll pop out at the weekend and pick up a second small external harddrive.

    Thanks for all your help
    Neal

  8. Thomas

    Neal- That is pretty strange. If you are confident that 10.5.5 works 100% on your External Drive then you can boot from the External Drive and use either Carbon Copy Cloner or Super Duper to clone your External Drive to your Internal Drive. That would bypass the issue you get when installing 10.5.5 on the Internal Drive.

  9. Neal

    Right…..

    I can get this to work on my external hard-drive (my test disc), however when I come to do it on the Harddrive inside the laptop…..the you must restart your computer error screen – but this is only when I do it on my internal drive!

    I have now tried it four times on my internal drive and no joy, but can do it over and over again on my external drive – does anyone have any ideas

    Cheers
    Neal

  10. Thomas

    No Problem! Thats why were here :-)

  11. Stupid.Cool.Nerds

    @Thomas: Thanks alot

  12. Stupid.Cool.Nerds

    yes. Now I have to figure out how to install 10.5.6 without panic

  13. Thomas

    So that fixed your problem?

  14. Stupid.Cool.Nerds

    Sorry Guys! I forgot to “sudo su” while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done

  15. Thomas

    If you are going to reinstall then you might as well install a new build of Leopard such as iPC 10.5.6 PPF5.

  16. Stupid.Cool.Nerds

    Thanks for all the hard work and research, but I’m having problems updating to 10.5.5.
    Theres 2 versions on the apple site
    -Mac OS X 10.5.5 Update – 316MB
    -Mac OS X 10.5.5 Combo – 601MB

    which I downloaded Mac OS X 10.5.5 Update – 316MB but it doesn’t finish installing, panics and after that
    a screen comes up saying I should hold down my power button.
    any help or suggestion would be great.

    From there I have to start all over I know how to backup, but I just have to reinstall 10.5.2 Kalyway Installation, over and over again.

  17. Oleg

    Anybody tried on intel DX58SO MB with i7 9400 CPU and Radeon HD 4870 ?
    I try to build system similar to Mac Pro. Apple is accepting most of intel HW I heard.
    Would appreciate help.
    Thank you.

  18. Trey Thomas

    SwampFoetus: Your method of fixing the battery meter worked for me on Kalyway 10.5.2, thank you very much!

  19. Thomas Piccirello

    The ethernet driver does work. Everyone can download it and get it

  20. Thomas Piccirello

    IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT USING THE IONETWORKING KEXT FROM THE BETA RELEASE OF 10.5.7, THE ETHERNET NOW WORKS. THE LINK TO THE KEXT IS http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=155935&st=0#entry1097329 AND ALL CREDIT GOES OUT TO mwgdrwg IF IT WORKS. SORRY FOR CAPS BUT FIGURED I WOULD GET MORE PEOPLE’S ATTENTION ON SUCH AN IMPORTANT ISSUE.
    ****EVERYONE TRY IT OUT AND REPORT HOW IT WORKS FOR YOU. I WILL REPORT BACK WITH MY OWN FINDINGS SHORTLY***

  21. SwampFoetus

    Huge leap forwards yesterday as I FINALLY got the battery meter working! Not sure what I did wrong when trying all the various methods that are floating around, but I finally worked out the necessary versions of the necessary kexts/bundles from various forums and got it working!

    So, if you want to have a go at this, here’s a step-by-step of what I did. Now, I must point out that this may not work for you and could possibly screw your installation, so BACKUP with TimeMachine (or whatever) before you try it. My laptop is a Dell 1525, bought in the UK in January 2009. I got this working on XxX 10.5.6, so I don’t know if it will work on anything other than XxX 10.5.6, but I imagine it will (well, you’re going to backup anyway, right?).

    I’ve uploaded the necessary files to a website, as, after all the various forums I visited, I can’t actually remember where I got them. In fact, they may well be the same ones as Richard’s, but I don’t have time to compare them.

    1. Download PowerManagement.bundle.tar (version 136.0.0) from here: http://www.swampfoetus.net/downloads/PowerManagement.bundle.tar
    2. Download AppleACPIPlatform.kext.tar (version 1.1.0) from here: http://www.swampfoetus.net/downloads/AppleACPIPlatform.kext.tar.
    3. Extract both of the above files (double-click them in finder).
    4. Start a Terminal session.
    5. Type “sudo su –“ and enter your root password to become the root user.
    6. Type “cd /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/”
    7. Type “mv PowerManagement.bundle PowerManagement.bundle_backup” i.e. take a backup.
    8. Copy in the one you downloaded at step 1, so, depending on what user you downloaded the file as, type “cp –R ~/Downloads/PowerManagement.bundle ./” Here, should be replaced with the username you download the file as.
    9. Type “cd /System/Library/Extensions/”
    10. Type “mv AppleACPIPlatform.kext AppleACPIPlatform.kext_backup” i.e. take a backup
    11. Open KextHelper and drag-and-drop the downloaded AppleACPIPlatform.kext into it.
    12. Open Disk Utility and click “Repair Disk Permissions”. (I got a load of “…permissions differ…” messages and ignored them.)
    13. Reboot with –v –f
    14. Open System Preferences and go to Energy Saver. Fingers crossed, you should have a load of new stuff in this window. Click the Options tab and tick Show battery status in the menu bar.

    Well, I really hope this works for you. Let me know your successes.

    I’m posting this to all the blogs, as Batter Meter problems are mentioned in all of them.

    P.S. It’s my birthday tomorrow so, as a gift, could someone get my hibernation working? It’s the only thing left that I need working!

  22. Sami

    It haven’t worked since I’m on 10.5.5 it happened to work 1-2 times but that’s it no more moving mouse and screen turn on I have to type my password blindly and use hot corner after updating 10.5.5.

  23. Thomas Piccirello

    SamiThank You Very Much Tom!!!! It works, now when the CPU reaches 50C the fan is turning on like before when I was using Windows, but the last few days I’ve noticed that the alternative sleep trick doesn’t work. I’ve put it in rc.local and rc.common but still nothing sometimes when reboot the screen turn black but in a few seconds its turning on and I can see login screen but that’s happening randomly. Any tips for this?

    I too use the alternative sleep trick and I receive the exact same problem as you although I was also receiving it before I removed the kext. Did it ever not work before you removed the kext?

  25. Thomas Piccirello

    SamiOk Thank you very much Tom but before doing this I want to be sure how to return it to its previous state, so how can copy backuped extension from desktop to extensions folder in system when I use single user mode or what is called when you boot with -s? Could you type the exact command to do this? Thank you for all help.

    You would not need to boot in to single user mode to copy the kext backup because AppleCPUPowermanagement.kext cannot break your install so if it does not work, just boot with -v -f and then copy the kext from your desktop backup to extensions, repair permissions, and reboot.

  27. Thomas Piccirello

    SamiSo you have no clue why the temperature is that high? I’ve read that some have removed AppleCPUPowermanagement.kext but they are on 10.5.6 and I don’t want to risk my current installation until I have an external HD to make a back up and thy this neither to remove it while I’m running 10.5.5.

    At first my computer would overheat too but then I deleted that kext and now the computer itself manages the fans (when my computer gets hot the fans come on). In other words, you might want to backup that kext by copying it to your desktop but then delete, repair permissions, and reboot and see what happens.

  28. Sami

  29. Thomas Piccirello

    SamiIts called temperature monitor and I installed the speedstep.kext and i haven’t tried the battery uptime.

    I was previously using MSR_tools but thank you for the suggestion of the program because it works even better, telling me the hard drive temperature as well. I have found it to be accurate on my machine so it is quite possible that your system is actually running at that temperature.

  30. Sami

    Its called temperature monitor and I installed the speedstep.kext and i haven’t tried the battery uptime.

  31. Thomas Piccirello

    What program are you using to monitor your temperature. But if you are getting proper readings then 67 is much too hot. My computer runs at much less than that that, usually at around 40 although sometimes when the airvents are blocked it will jump to around 56… but never 67.

  32. Sami

    Thomas Piccirello

    You can follow Ray’s suggestions on auto throttling that he posted over in Dell Inspiron 1525 Hackintosh. I use it and it works great and gives you much improved battery life

    I’ll give it a hot but I want to know is it normal to have CPU temerature around 67-68 C cuz I think that isn’t normal.My CPU is Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 2.00 Ghz and what should be normal temperature?

  33. Thomas Piccirello

    SamiIs there someway to make my battery last longer cuz I went down for like an 1:30 hours on the lowest display brightness or is caused because I watched a mkv file because when I was on windows it lasted for at least 2:30 hours on lowest LCD brightness?

    And one more thing to ask is how to fix the CPU heating problem and is it connected somehow with battery uptime?

    Thank you in advance!

    Do you mind posting the link to the forums that you were referring to in your previous post? Thanks

    I’d like to but a few days ago i tried to put some video kext as I saw somewhere but that gave me a opportunity to reinstall leopard again and my history is gone I’ll post them if i can find them cause it took me lots of time to find that topic.

  37. Thomas Piccirello

    SamiIs there someway to fix resolution change on x3100 on 10.5.5? I found someways in InsanelyMac forums but they were for 10.5.6 and I don’t want to update to it because I don’t want to mess something.

    Im sure that you can just follow the steps for 10.5.6 even if you are running 10.5.5.

    Does anyone have a nice clean tutorial with steps on exactly what options to check when installing. It seems a big mish mash of information everyone, that I wish was consolidated. I have a dell 1525 t5500 2ghz 3gb ram. I want to dual boot vista osx 10.5.6 (if it works well)

  41. Kyle

    RichardJust a small warning when using the Dell Post Installer. Maybe it’s just me or I had a bad download but ever since I recovered from that failed 10.5.6, I used the Dell Post Installer instead of my own files to save me some time and my machine has issues booting, and also freezes at random. It’s very annoying and I’m about to upgrade to 10.5.6 once I back everything up.

    Beware.

    Let us know how your upgrade goes to 10.5.6. I’m still reluctant because bluetooth doesn’t work and the other numerous issues. I’ve read through all the posts a few times, but I still don’t get a fuzzy feeling that my machine will ever run as clean as it does right now on 10.5.5. Thanks!

  43. Rick Q

    Hey all wanted to say thanks. I’m typing this from my 1525 which is dual booting IPC 10.5.6 PPF1 thru 4 and Vista. One nice thing about it is that the Broadcom wireless patch works as soon as you’re at the post install. Bluetooth and the webcam worked as well. There’s plenty of stuff in the customize so it saves you having to play around after the install. This was my first attempt at a Hackintosh so I highly recommend it!

  44. Thomas Piccirello

    gbonillaThomas, with so many things wrong with your hackintosh why not just fresh install at 10.5.6 with iPC? Because I have media keys working as well as my dvd drive and just about everything except my ethernet port which is being worked on now.

    It’s just a thought.

    Thank you for the suggestion gbonilla and I am probably going to do that if I cannot get it working in another couple of weeks, but I love doing this stuff and so I would actually much rather have it not working and me trying to fix it then it already working…. if that makes any sense lol.

    Thomas PiccirelloWhere can I obtain the Butler configuration file without installing the media key fix through dell post installer

    here u go

    -download and install Bulter http://butler.en.softonic.com/mac
    -download the media key config for 1525 here
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZHDKKNZR
    -double click the Configuration.En.butleritems you just download and it should work

    check to see if it works for you!

    I downladed Butler, loaded the Config file, overwrote my old configuration, then opened itunes but it didnt work. I dont think OS X is even reading the key because you know how if you click in box where you can set your own hot fix and how if you hit a key, it will change the hot key to run for that key, well if i hit any of those keys nothing shows up in the box but if i hit, lets say F2, F2 will show up in that box and the hotfix will be set for that key.

    don’t use the dell post install to install media key, jus go to the Bulter website, install Bulter and use the config file.

  51. Thomas Piccirello

    Chrisbutler and the config files are all you need to get the media keys running.

    I installed the config files and then rebooted but then on the login screen my keyboard is doesn’t work. I am using the alternative to sleep trick which make you login first (before butler starts running), so could that be the issue?

  52. Chris

    butler and the config files are all you need to get the media keys running.

  53. Thomas Piccirello

    I have tried using dell post installer to install media keys on 10.5.5 about 3 different times but the keyboard is always broken when I restart. Does the keyboard only work when you are already logged in when butler is running because I use the alternative to sleep trick so I must put in my password and login, but i cannot when my keyboard doesn’t work. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. You can also email me at tompic823 [@] aol.com

  54. Robert

    nevermind, i figured it out, once you did the install, you will see a folder name DellLaptops, open the folder and double click the file Configuration.En.butleritems, it should work after that.

    Thanks for the info… it’s working now, but it installs some program called “Butler”. It appears that program has to be running to make the media keys work.

  55. Chris

    Genaro Bonillahmmm sad to hear but, fortunately for you play/stop/skip/forward works with the dell post installer under Other choose media keys and install it then repair and all that jazz and you should be in business. At first I thought stop didn’t work but the use of stop with the installer is to full screen things in VLC and such. Try and give it a go.

    I installed the Media Keys using the Sonotone Post Installer package, but only my forward button works with iTunes. Is there anything else I need to do to enable the media keys? VLC player isn’t recognizing the media keys.

    Hey, Sorry if I’m a little late but I have upgraded from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5 on Dell Inspiron 1525 thanks to Richard. :) Thanks again. One problem my Battery icon isn’t showing, Can I use the PowerManagmetBundle from 10.5.3 if not can someone give me a link for a new one. Thanks.

  61. Richard

    Thanks, Dave.

    I updated the 10.5.6 article with your comment to kick things off!

    IntelEnhancedSpeedStep.kext rocks! It’s a fairly solid project at this point. Grab the latest binary from the Google Code project they started for it. It determines the clock factors for the specific CPU and will auto-clock all over factor spectrum depending on what you’re doing.

    My 1525 has a 1.6GHz Pentium Dual Core and this kext allows it to clock anywhere from 800, 1066, 1333, up to 1600MHz. They have a *test* app (SpeedStep) that shows the clocking change as you do things (it presents MHz in the menu bar), but it’s not something I’d run all the time. Just run it to test that the clock changes as you do non-intensive stuff and then intensive stuff (i.e. encode video). The clock should properly accommodate what you’re requesting the OS to do.

    It’s a great addition to the OS and will give you some more time when running on battery since most of the time I’m running at half-clock. Prior to loading the kext, the CPU was full bore @ 1.6GHz all the time!

    Oh yea, build number is 9G55.. Finder version is 10.5.8 :O

    Anyways does anyone know how to activate the new Trackpad preference pane? I can only change trackpad speed in the FFScroll preference pane :( The Keyboard & Mouse pane doesn’t have Trackpad page anymore, only Mouse/Keyboard/Bluetooth/Keyboard Shortcuts..

    BTAnyone try upgrading to 10.5.6 that just came out?

    Yup! Updated both iAtkos 4.0i (10.5.4 updated to 10.5.5) and iAtkos 5.0i (10.5.5) to 10.5.6 succesfully. Had to use fassl’s DSDT patcher (that failed) available at http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=133683 . Just run the script, if it fails (like it did for me) you might already patched RTC. If you have patched RTC you’re good to go (at least for me…)

    Maybe someone will put up a clearer instruction… I’m lousy at tutorials :P

  67. mbebop

    has anyone tried using the IntelEnhancedSpeedStep.kext on the 1525? From what I gather it’s supposed to improve CPU speed and efficiency a great deal. I’m running Intel Core2Duo T7250 2.00Ghz, just assuming that’s relevant information.

  68. Cristian

    Dear Richard and all,
    I decided today to upgrade my Dell 1525 to 10.5.5 although I had enough fear that everything would go wrong. So, I didn’t use the update from Automatic Software Update but download manualy the package from apple website. I followed all the steps including first boot -v -f -x and then second -v -f. Surprisingly I didn’t have to reboot once again as my Dell hadn’t gone to sleep but simply loaded 10.5.5 :)
    Regarding sound, wireless and batery metter, because I have poor info about hopw to use of kext or find them, I didn’t know how to use KEXT HELPER B7 (although launched I didn’t managed to find those kext to drag them into the window) and repeated the steps I made for 10.5.4.
    Once again all have started to work just as before. I dare to believe that such old instal of wireless and other stuff will not put me into trouble later on :).
    Thanks Richard for this tutorial.
    I’ll keep you posted if something goes wrong.
    regards
    Cristian

    media keys are working, you are the master.

    thanks for the tip :)

  70. Genaro Bonilla

    I have the same media keys right below the speaker right? hmm it didnt break my keyboard at all, and if you’re scared of that you could just install it and set it to auto-login and use the on-screen keyboard located in System Preferences>International>Input Menu>Keyboard Viewer with that you could just replace the backup kext of your keyboard.

  71. mbebop

    To anyone who still can’t get a battery meter to display; your problem might just be that you’re doin it wrong.

    PowerManagement.bundle does not go into the regular kext folder; it needs to be installed to /Leopard/System/Library/SystemConfiguration. Installing it with kext helper, OSX86 Tools, or the like puts it in the wrong place. I think dell post installer sticks it in the right spot, but don’t quote me on that. In any case, it’s super easy to drag and drop it into a folder and type your password, so who needs a tool.

    Hope this helps.

  72. mbebop

    I may have tried the media keys repair from the post installer once, I think it broke my keyboard. I might try it again to see if it works for full screen control, but not until I have access to an external keyboard so I can fix it if it doesn’t work out. It might also be my media keys though. I’ve heard a lot about success with media keys on the front; mine aren’t on the front of the computer. They’re a set of sort of touch keys near the speakers/power button, at the back of the computer; sort of like what you see on a lot of HP machines. Are your keys similar, or do you think I’m up the creek with this one as well?

  73. Genaro Bonilla

    hmmm sad to hear but, fortunately for you play/stop/skip/forward works with the dell post installer under Other choose media keys and install it then repair and all that jazz and you should be in business. At first I thought stop didn’t work but the use of stop with the installer is to full screen things in VLC and such. Try and give it a go.

  74. Jag12345

    I’ve got all the front media keys working with Sonotone’s Dell Post Installer.

    Can someone please tell me what the heck is the two finger scrolling and how do you get it to work. I enabled it but I don’t know how to use it.

  75. mbebop

    also, since I’m here and haven’t been for a long time, figured I’d ask about progress on a few trivial things. Has anyone managed to get the SD card reader or play/stop/skip back+forward media keys working?

    Would also love to hear from someone with a working internal mic/right headphone jack/mic jack (no luck with your method Genaro Bonilla, but thanks for the effort), but I’m starting to lose hope on that as well.

  76. mbebop

    nobody has working ethernet at the moment, at least on the 1525. it uses a Marvell Yukon 88E8040 card, for which there is no working kext, patch, support from apple, or anything. some coders have tried to work on it from time to time, but they usually get frustrated and quit because they aren’t making progress/nobody is helping them.

    if a fix for it is found, you’ll probably see about 20 posts about it here and on insanelymac, world hunger will come to an end, and jesus will come back.

    my advice would be to buy a USB to ethernet adapter if you really need wired ethernet (they make one for the macbook air that I here works well), or stick to the airwaves for your internets.

    cheers

  77. Jag12345

    It WORKED!!! IT WORKED!!!! I am soooooo thankful mbebop!

    Now I’ve got a fully working hackintosh! I’ve got my wireless, bluetooth, sound, and everything working!! YAY!!!

    Well, actually I have one thing that doesn’t work, my gigabit ethernet. Do you guys have any clue about that? Again, I am using a XPS M1710 laptop.

  78. Jag12345

    mbebopAnyone still having trouble with sleep should try the superhai EHCISleepEnabler solution. Fixed sleep for me; only downside is it disconnects USB for a few seconds on wake-up.

    Go here to download (and the clamshell kext, if you want it):

    The Post Installer didn’t help with sleep issue. It does go to sleep but it instantly wakes right back up. I just don’t get it.

    I’ve read it elsewhere that USB emulation causes sleep to not work but if you turn off USB emulation, you have no USB.

  81. Jag12345

    Genaro BonillaJag, I just followed the tutorial and used the dell post installer by sonotone for clamshell.

    Thanks a lot GB!

    That post installer has a lot of useful things which I would otherwise have to do manually.

    Do you know about the Safe Update? Have you used it? Has anyone here used it? Does it work with major updates such as when we have to update to 10.5.6?

  82. Genaro Bonilla

    I have the left headphone working, internal mic, and mute working. I also got it recognized in the bios. I did it through a combination of kext’s though. I’m also in 10.5.5. If you’d like I could provide you with some info on how I did it. gbonilla[at]mandomhood.com feel free to drop me a line.

  84. mbebop

    Hey guys, I’m on a quest to perfect the audio driver for the 1525. I got a hold of some different patched AppleHDA.kexts, one with mute working (from the MacGirl thread) and one with the left headphone jack working; made some tweaks in the plist file and now I’ve got one with working mute AND headphones (woo!!). Can upload on request.

    What I’d like to do is get the internal microphone working and the right headphone jack if possible. If someone has either of these things working, your AppleHDA.kext would be appreciated. Maybe some more toying will have it working 100%. :)

  85. Jag12345

    Genaro Bonillaxtraa, I actually currently have sleep working both through clamshell and pressing the power button and selecting sleep.

    Did you do anything extra? I have a XPS M1710 and I can’t get sleep to work. It goes into sleep and wakes up instantly. I can’t even get the screen to turn off becuase it won’t come back…it’ll stay black.

    Anyone have any pointers. I’ve successfully updated to 10.5.5 with this awesome tutorial.

    Hi guys,

    I tried some things on getting sleep to work, here is what I did so far:

    Started with Chameleon 10x. After that I tried Netkasts PC EFI v9.0 what does some minor changes in sleep support for some devices. I also tried various kexts and combinations so far that I don’t want to list here in detail to keep it short.

    The new Voodoo Kernel gives us 64bit support. You can check it if you look in the Informations of the Chess game. There will be an option that says ‘Enable 32bit mode’, that indicates the program is running in 64bit mode by standard.

    Anyway, I am able to put 10.5.5. to sleep. I also get a screen when I wake it up. But: At wakeup, the Vanilla Kernel freezes, and the Voodoo Kernel gets me a panic.

    So ATM, it seems that there is not a way to get the sleep to work. The sleepimage that will be created when going to hibernate has junk in it. This is the bootmessage you get, when you boot verbose mode (-v flag) and if you are down with the latest PC Efi from Netkas.

  88. Genaro Bonilla

    I’ve updated my Dell Inspiron 1525 to 10.5.5 below is my screenshot. Oh and I got it to recognize my ram to be ddr2 and my soundcard.

    Mac OS X 10.5.6 is seeding as almost ready to be released. These betas are flawless. Expect a 10.5.6 upgrade guide coming your way a day or two after its release. Rumor has it that it might come out this weekend or next week. I’ll have a tutorial up a few days after it is released.

    You’ll need to upgrade to 10.5.5. before you can go to 10.5.6 with my tutorial so get to it! :-)

  90. Alejandro

    Hi there, folks.

    I managed to make my 1525 run Leopard 10.5.3

    After 5 or 6 failed attempts, and very obtuse mistakes, I decided to keep it at 10.5.3 considering that, thanks to Richard, I’m able to use USB, Firewire, Airport and Sound.

    I hosed the system trying to fix the battery meter, so, until a better solution, I’ll keep it as is. Also, I’ve been reading some not to nice experiences about Software Update, hence, I stop here. Thanks Richard for the patience, and let me tell you that thanks to you, I have Audio, Wireless and Trackpad with double tap enabled. I had to use the USB Fix Package that’s available at OSX86 forum, and it worked just fine.

    Yesterday, I gave Final Cut a try, and I was able to capture from a Firewire camera. This is good enough for me. I also installed Toast and it works fine, same with Office and such. In case of doubt, all software I’m talking about has a legal licence ;) and will be deleted if anyone has an issue with this.

    Once again, Richard, I wish I could send you some cash via paypal, but I’m Venezuelan and internet money wiring is not possible thanks to politics and regulations.

    I’ll be tuned waiting for a LAN and Card Reader patch. Once again, THANK you for all the effort. You rock.

    RichardJust re-run the Broadcom-Script.

    Everything installs, then I reboot it works. BUT, I shutdown and the next time I boot nothing!!!

    Are you booting with -v -f flags, if not try that and see if it is working for you. And if you have not already I suggest to just make that the default boot function anyways, just scroll up there is a mini tutorial on how to do that.

    I always use “-v -f” flags after installing drivers or patches. I didn’t realize that people make this their default boot setup. Are a lot of people using this? I haven’t played with my laptop in over a week after having all the aircard issues, but hopefully I can resolve the issue soon.

    Then it can all start over once 10.5.6 is released! Hahaha.

    mbebopI’ve got everything working (audio, WiFi, TimeMachine, keyboard/trackpad, battery meter, about this mac) in 10.5.5 except for sleep. sucks cuz last time I got up to 10.5.5 sleep was working without me having to do anything, so I have no idea how to fix it. pmset values from last tutorial doesn’t work.

    Anyone know how to cure my hackbook’s insomnia?

    In exchange, some informations:
    you can update to 10.5.5 directly from 10.5.3, just run the script in this tutorial as root in terminal (while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done). You have to use the 601 MB 10.5.5 combo update DMG file from apple’s site for this to work. After install, my reboot was screwy, booted with “update -v” and it was fine after that.

    so, if you hit a roadblock going from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5, you can try reinstalling Kalyway 10.5.2>>>Kalyway 10.5.3 combo update>>>601 MB 10.5.5 combo update from apple, and see how that works

    sorry, no cure for your insomnia, but thanks for the confirmation on going from 10.5.3 to 10.5.5 via the Combo Update.

    I actually had my OS X freeze using the combo updates for 10.5.4 and 10.5.5 I’m not sure why that is but I suggest just using the incremental updates. And I do have a Dell Inspiron 1525, just a lil higher specs than Richard.

    RichardFor anyone who noticed Apple put the Airport update back online, it works great and is easy to do.

    Download from Software Update and reboot. When your laptop comes back up your wireless will be dead. No big deal! Re-run the Broadcom-Script, fix permissions and reboot again. Ta da! Seems to be stable than ever. You’ll want to repeat these steps for every Airport update you download so keep the Broadcom-Script handy in the future.

    I had a fully working 1525, installed the software update and noticed my aircard was gone. No problem, re-installed the Broadcom Drivers, fixed permissions, rebooted using “-v -f” options and aircard was working again. BUT, every time I reboot now my aircard is gone and I have re-apply the drivers. This was never an issue before the software update… any ideas?

    Anyone else having issues with the new Airport Apple update? Is there a newer version of the Broadcom-Script I should be using? I just want my wifi to work on boot-up like before… HELP!!!

    I had the same issue but like Richard said re-run the script and everything should work fine. Actually if you read the script it clearly says you have to re-run it every time you update the Airport Utility.

    kiastaHello, thanks for the wonderful tutorial! I am finally able to get OS X 10.5.5 working. There is only one thing that I cannot figure out…How do I get the power meter on the taskbar? I installed the kext (well at least I hope it is the correct way). This is the way I installed, I just followed this guy’s advice:

    “copy to /System/Library/Extensions, delete /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache nd Extensions.mcache
    Run sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions
    Reboot”

    Well I did all that with no errors but it is still not showing up, any ideas or advice? I’m at a loss here as I have no idea how to use OS X very well (I have never used a mac before). Thanks in advance.

    Actually, I figured out the problem:

    You need to put the PowerManagement.bundle in /System/Library/SystemConfiguration not Extensions, than repair permissions like always and reboot, go to Energy Saver in System Preferences and you now have a couple more options as well as the option to add the power meter to the taskbar.

    Thanks again for the great tutorial I am now running OS X 10.5.5 fully (with the exception of ethernet and SD card port, but I don’t use either so I am not worried about it).

    After posting last night and getting frustrated with my dell, was searching online and found that iDeneb had released a 10.5.5 so downloaded it overnight. After playing with different options during the install, just finally got it working fully working… Installed it with the 9.4 kernel and selecting the intel ICH7/8/9 chipset, did not select any video drivers and all seems to be working very well. I used the Dell Laptop post install package found off of Insanelymac to get my wireless working. I used Richard’s sound script to audio back on and that’s it… battery meter works great as well as my external monitor. I also installed MacFuse and NTFS 3G so I could write to my Vista partition..Great thing about the iDeneb v 1.3 10.5.5 build is that they defaulted screen sleep to like 2 minutes… no more having to wait 15+ minutes after the initial install to get into the set-up… you’ll still need to set up the sleep trick. Also, for those who dual boot into Vista using EasyBCD, every time you reinstall iDeneb, you don’t have to pop the vista disc back in to make the partition active again like you did after installing Kalyway… So those of you that are running into trouble with getting to 10.5.5 with the Kalyway build on your Dell 1525 may want to check out the iDeneb v1.3.

  109. BT

    I’d abandoned MacOS after my last update to 10.5.5 rendered my built in keyboard useless and installed vista again…. Now I’m back… got it running fine with 10.5.2 and tried to update to 10.5.3 but it freezes after the booting back up for the first time. I get the error on the Firewire unable to determine security mode; defaulting to full -secure. I then reloaded 10.5.2 and tried to upgrade to 10.5.5 using the while sleep trick… seemed that it installed fine but when I reboot, the system freezes at the exact same point as before at the Firewire error. I’ve tried -v -f -x and -v -f but still freezes at the exact same place.

    I’ve tried the “update -v” as well but not sure if it’s my EasyBCD for dual booting but all it does is flicker and go back to the boot option prompt again. Anyone have a clue on what may be causing the freeze and a potential work around?

You have to use the 601 MB 10.5.5 combo update DMG file from apple’s site for this to work. After install, my reboot was screwy, booted with “update -v” and it was fine after that.

    so, if you hit a roadblock going from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5, you can try reinstalling Kalyway 10.5.2>>>Kalyway 10.5.3 combo update>>>601 MB 10.5.5 combo update from apple, and see how that works

    well, i tried the 10.5.5 update using more or less the same process on my inspiron 1525… sleep works just fine :D the only prob im having is with shutdown… i can shut down properly when connected to charger, but cant when just on battery :S i tried the HDA fix from the Dell Post Installer, that fixes it, but gets rid of my sound as well… when i get sound back up, im back to square one :S

    a bit of help please :S

    Hello,

    Anyone who first updated your machine using the update tool instead of the instructions above and ended up with the screen to shut down their computers when the update was almost finished, and then continued to be unable to get back in the the back shade screen (or the HPET error message), use seplw’s method for getting rid of the power management kext.

    It might take a few tries for everything to work fine again, but once you start back up, there’s a chance that finder will go into a loop of crashing over and over again. You’ll know this because the top toolbar will be missing until an application besides finder is opened. (if you don’t have the dock either, then pray that the following directions will work for you too.)

    First, you will need to figure out how to get a browser running. Hopefully you can see the dock, and you can then click on safari or firefox. Go to http://boxstr.com/download/3550397_erzx1/?token=f1f7bafad865b9b06bb1ebf4301fc029 and download a new DAVKit.framework. This has become broken during the install. If you see error messages regarding other frameworks or files (from the console, which you can access thru spotlight), post here and see if someone will be nice enough to share a repaired version of the framework.

    When this downloads, you might be wondering how in the world you are supposed to go about putting it where it needs to be. Assuming you have StuffIt Expander set as the default handler for zip files, let firefox or safari pass it off to stuffit to expand in your Downloads folder.

    Next, open up terminal (I did this in the graphical mode using spotlight once again, instead of single user mode for convenience and to know if the changes worked) and enter the following command to copy the file over:

    sudo cp -R /Users/USERNAME/Downloads/DAVKit.framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/

    Enter your password, and let it do its magic. Now, wait and see if your desktop icons reappear and the finder app stays on in your dock. THis might require you to manually right click the finder app on your dock and selecting relaunch. Heck, it might even work better by running in single user mode. I’m not entirely sure. If it doesn’t work once, try the command again until it works. It might be about timing it so that the finder app isn’t trying to access the framework while your copying it.

    Post your results and any other tips here to see if others can help too!

    Hope this helps!

    RichardActually, I had edited AboutThisMac.strings to report the correct CPU type. Without it, you’re correct, it would be reported as Core2 Duo which is what the Pentium Dual Core is based on (Or vice verse, I’m not a CPU expert…). Memory isn’t reporting anything for me, just shows the error. I’m very much a perfectionist as you can tell by the correct CPU report in About This Mac and would love to know how to get memory to report correctly.

    Yeah, I’m into the “perfection” as well as if you couldn’t tell (sorry about the double post there above — you can kill one of those). The only solution I’ve found to correct and get things straight up reporting without having to dive into property lists and edit is this:

    http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=108606&hl=AppleSMBIOSEFI.kext

    Download AppleSMBIOSEFI_28.zip, drop it (it works in conjunction with the already present AppleSMBIOS.kext), delete cache, repair permissions, blah, blah. . . Reboot. Reporting should be correct after that in ‘About’ (without mods, so you can remove what you added) and in ‘Memory’ under Sys. Profiler. This works and works perfect from all I can tell — and I modded nothing. Tested EVERYTHING and there’s been no negative impact from its addition. So, I’ve done that part for us already.

    Do me a favor though. . . I didn’t bother to benchmark in your (and what was my) current state vs. after loading this new kext. So, if you could run a GeekBench or whatever before and after I’d appreciate it. It’d save me having to run the mark, regress, and roll back to current. I just wonder if it did anything to performance at all.

    ‘Presh. Let me know what you end up with. . .

    BTW, our machines are based on Core2Duo processors, so that’s what should be reported.

    I’ve updated a bit. . . In your 10.5.5 update “proof” picture your CPU(s) are identified as ‘Pentium Dual Core’, should report ‘Intel Core2Duo’ — I guess, since that’s what’s in it. ;) My updates have this reporting correctly now and also corrected my ‘Memory’ reporting in Sys Profiler, which was broken prior to me updating.

    Is ‘Memory’ reporting in Sys Profiler working for you? I just want to know if I was somewhere out in left field after my “build” (that I needed to since correct) or if a Kalyway 10.5.2 updated via his combo to 10.5.3 and then up to 10.5.5 the way we did it left some things in a weird state?

    DaveRichard,

    In System Profiler what shows up for your ‘Hardware Overview’?

    I get:

    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: Mac Pro
    Model Identifier: MacPro3,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 1.6 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 1 MB
    Memory: 3 GB
    Bus Speed: 533 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MP31.006C.B05
    Serial Number: W1234567890

    … which is correct for the most part. I was not able to query my ‘Memory’, however, I got an ‘Error returned getting this information.’ or something like that. I have since messed around with my SMBIOS kexts and have better reporting and have corrected the ‘Memory’ reporting. I’m presently using AppleSMBIOS.kext, 1.0.13, Mar. 18, 2008, 48KB.

    Question is, which kexts are you using for SMBIOS and any that might relate to it? I’ve tried playing around with a few, one, SMBIOSEnabler.kext that allows using versions straight from Apple, and another AppleSMBIOSEFI.kext, 1.0.14, 220KB along with the other AppleSMBIOS.kext which the developer of AppleSMBIOSEFI said was okay. Supposedly, this provides better EFI/BIOS support. This DID correct my ‘Memory’ reporting.

    I’m no longer using the SMBIOSEnabler.kext since I haven’t yet gone to a full Chameleon install using IntelCPUPowerManagementDisabler.kext and SMBIOSEnabler.kext, which from what I understand would allow you to bypass all bad things Apple might do on an update/upgrade – but I am using and did keep dsmos.kext (Don’t Steal Mac OS.kext) replacment/disabler as it didn’t appear to interfere with anything.

    Anyhow, any more details as to what kexts you’re using here, including those that the Kalyway distros might have installed would be appreciated.

    Note, I’m up to 10.5.5, totally Vanilla with Darwin 9.5 kernel.

    Thanks!

    Security Update 2008-007 has been confirmed as working flawlessly.

    No permissions repair, no special scripts. Just gtab it from Software Update, let it install, reboot and BOOM. You’re done.

    As Steve Jobs would say, “Pretty cool, huh?”

  121. Dave

    Well. . .

    Updated to Chameleon using their DMG (1.0.11), followed the update path for 10.5.5 posted here.

    Uneventful. Everything back up and running smooth. Can’t tell what Chameleon did or did not do for me since I still followed the instructions posted here, reloaded necessary kexts, repaired permissions, etc. Again, can’t find any driver/app/hardware that is failing or not working as it was under 10.5.4. So, Dave’s happy.

    I’ve got some queries out to the Chameleon crew to help me understand what differences I can expect from PC_EFIv8 (other than the obvious) and how it being present might have changed my upgrade path. I’ll report back when I hear from them. . .

  122. Richard

    Nothing amazing. I really couldn’t tell you that I notice ANY graphic enhancements other than my benchmarking scores bumping up a bit. Other than those magic numbers, I see nothing different. I do know that the internal GMAX3100 is not built for gaming so we’re always going to be stuck with the MacBook and MacBook Air users on the same argument that games just plain suck on these portables. If you want mobile Mac gaming power, prepare to pay the price or do some more patching.

    DaveWhat’s the -f switch do when booting? Not familiar with that one. . . and, having a perfect 10.5.4 Kalyway install kicking for a while, never had to use it.

    Appreciate the knowledge. . .

    -f forces your kexts to load and in some cases makes certain things load that normally wouldn’t during boot even though they’re in your system. For example, my Wi-Fi would disappear if I didn’t boot with -f.

    Thanks! Yeah, here’s the gamut: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=99891

    Also, Richard, I assume you’re using the PC_EFIv8 that came with Kalyway still, yeah? And, you used the delta update not the combo, correct (when upgrading to 10.5.5 using your method)? You notice any of these ‘extensive graphics enhancements’ this update was supposed to provide?

    Also, glad to hear that your sleep came back with stock 9.5 kernel and system.kext! (which I assume you are using, huh?)

    YamilRichard if you update your installation to use DFE-BOOT 132 and Chamaleon/EFI with extra folder you CAN upgrade without problems. Im writing this on my Inspiron fully vanilla upgraded to 10.5.5

    How about a walk through? Let’s get this baby rolling for everyone and I’ll update the article above with your method + credits, etc.

    Yeah. . . I’m WAY interested in this process. Is it possible to take Kalyway’s DarwinX86, update it to Chamaleon/EFI using OSX86Tools and then use the Software Update straight from the OS without issue — on the 1525?!

    Like Richard, I’d love to hear the process to take a Kalyway 10.5.2->10.5.4 install to Boot132, Chamaleon/EFI and be able to install everything straight from the OS without all the hoop jumping. Yeah, hacking around is fun and all, but time’s hard to come by anymore for me!

    Sleep magically started to work on 10.5.5 with the vanilla 9.5.0 kernel after about 10-15 reboots and running all software updates.

    Strange stuff, but hey, it’s working again!

  130. BlurKing

    You don’t need a -v -x -f reboot

    I managed to update mine with -v on both double reboots. The -v -x -f might be the cause of the problem of the PS2 things not working and com.google.filesystem blah blah thing missing.

    I am no expert.. But cool! Without putting -v -x -f and -v -f I managed to update mine! It’s working now. :)

    Problem now… Safari crashes when 2 tabs are loading at the same time.

  131. Richard

    Works every time. And if you end up with a toasted installation by not removing AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext, you can boot into single user mode, mount the drive, and delete it that way although it’s recommended to follow the steps or bad things can happen.

    Just Follow the instruction on http://3rr0rists.com/macintosh/kalyway-1055-and-iatkos-1055-update-succeeded.html

    1. First, download the update directly from Apple√¢ÔøΩÔøΩs website. You can grab 10.5.5 at http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/macosx_updates/macosx1055update.html
    2. Before you run the downloaded file, open up Terminal and type √¢ÔøΩÔøΩsudo su -√¢ÔøΩÔøΩ without the quotes. Enter your user password and then type √¢ÔøΩÔøΩwhile sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done√¢ÔøΩÔøΩ without the quotes.
    3. Keep this window open while you run the downloaded update and install it
    4. Before you reboot, exit the Terminal script by holding down Ctrl and pressing X (Ctrl + X). Close Terminal and hit the button on the Update to reboot your computer.
    5 Done

    That’s exactly what I did…
    After restart I got past the -v -x -f reboot (I never been able to), then after that then the com.google.filesystem blah blah thing came up. I left it there for about 1.5hrs to solve its problem, but the message kept coming up.

    The message came up after the loginwindow.app was started message, but no bluescreen and login screen and desktop. :(

    I will try again after cloning this working partition again onto a test partition.

    Hi Richard,

    I posted the following request at your Leopard 10.5.3 Now Hacked thread on 03.09.08. However,there is no reply from anyone so far. Can you please help me? I used Kalyway 10.5.3 Combo update to update from 10.5.2 and the software update to 10.5.4.

    I am trying to install kalyway 10.5.2 on my Sony Vaio VGN-CR35G (T8100 processor, 2 GB Ram, ATI Radeon Mobility X2300, Intel 4965, Bluetooth, Realtek Sound, Sony built-in webcam, Texas Instruments PCIxx12 card reader, connexant modem) on USB Flash disk. Had to install many times due to some goof ups by me. The problem faced are:
    1. No wifi support at all.
    2. Graphics only 1024 X 768
    3. Sometimes sound card is detected and sometimes not. When sound card is detected, no mike
    4. TI PC Card reader not detected at all
    5. HP PCMCIA Bluetooth mouse is detected, but not connected sometimes.
    6. Web cam not detected at all.
    7. Only one core is detected.
    Another problem is Timemachine does not show, though it backs up. When I tried to restore from Timemachine back up through Kalyway 10.5.2 install DVD, there is no option. Is there anything that I did wrong?

    Any Help will be highly appreciated.

  136. BlurKing

    jayhuacat how did you do that?

    I got some funny com.google.blahblah file missing after update now cannot startup :(

    I am on a iAtkos v4.0i 10.5.4 install.

    Luckily the one that couldnt startup was a clone of the existing iAtkos v4.0i install… so not that bad, but i really would like 10.5.5 here :)

    Hmm, THX,

    I found this solution too in my faforite forum meanwhile too, and givet it a try. :-) (I renamed it, and didn’t remouve it, but I think it was the same effekt.)

    Then I reboot, and the system rebootet infuly, but in a black screen with a mouse. I hear in beground my TV software running, so I think the boot was completly finished, but no screen. OK, I thinked, maybe the nvinject kekst was maybe broken, so I replaced it with a new one, and rebooted again.

    It looked like I am on the right way, Now I got even a screen, Everything was there, but the Finder didn’t run. No finder in background, and in the Dock, the Finder Logo sayd (mouse over it) that it seems to be crashed, but evry restart try have no result…)

    So I was thinking, maybe the infuly update destryed meybe more, and I desidet to run again over it a universal update, that the broken elements will be replaced. I could to start safari and Diskutilities and pacifist, so I could to download the (600 MB) Update, and to install it. Nearly at the end of the installation even the Finder comes back. Everything looked good. I installed my NVinject also again with “Kext Helper b7”, and rebooted. (-f -v)

    But the reboot stops now with starnge error:

    Extensions “com.apple.driver .AppleACPIPlatform” has immediate dependencies on both com.apple.kernel and com.apple.kpi components ; use only one style

    Here one Image:

    MrLightHi everyone.

    I found the solution to late :-( I installed directly from apple, which was broken during install, and now the system doesn’t boot.

    How to safe the situation, if it is already to late? I have no timeMashine Backup, and my System is the known Asus p5w-DH Deluxe, with intel core2duo and vanilla Kernel.

    I have a second system (10.4.11) from where I can reach the disk.

    Some hints woulod be nice.

    THX a lot

    Mr Light :-(

    go to that failed update disk through your 10.4.1, change to the directory System/Library/Extensions/ on that failed update disk and delete the file AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext located there. reboot your failed update system and everything should be fine now.

    You can rebuild the kext cache from Kext Helper b7 if you click Advance you’ll see a few more buttons for tag/cache. Don’t forget to repair permissions in Disk Utility, too.

    Great! Thanks for the help! I will always remember to repair permissions because I think that’s what got me into so much trouble last night when the kernel failed. One time lapse of memory caused me a lot of unnecessary panic!

    Be sure to double- and triple-check your permissions, clear the kext cache, etc. if it still doesn’t show up. I had to play around with mine for a little while before it would display.

    Alright I’ll give it a go tonight… thanks for the help. I’ll try manually copying the PowerManagement.bundle AND the AppleACPIPlatform.kext. Hopefully this does the trick!

    HELP!!! I installed the AppleACPIPlatform.kext file to the /System/Library/Extensions folder as stated above and after I rebooted the machine, I get “Mac OS Version: Not yet set” and the machine stops booting. I’ve tried “-v -f” and “-x”, it allows stops booting. Need help big time!!!

    Crisis avoided after a lot of crazy unix commands. Anyways, the power meter still doesn’t work. I’m a little confused about the file locations. Please confirm the following:

    1. AppleACPIPlatform.kext — This file should come from the 1525 Tutorial and be installed into /System/Library/Extensions directory?

    2. PowerManagement.bundle — This file should be version 1.37 from your site and be installed into /System/Library/SystemConfiguration directory?

    Is this all correct or what am I missing? Are other people having problems with the battery meter for 10.5.5?

    Yes, and yes. Be sure to install the kext using Kext Helper b7, repair permissions and rebuild kext cache. If you don’t do this it won’t show up. I had to play around with the battery meter for a little while to get it to show up after 10.5.4 -> 10.5.5. I ended up making a backup of my existing Extensions from 10.5.4 (Read above for Extensions.bkup command) and using those files, although they should be the same ones I included in my Extensions archive since both times I was running 10.5.4.

    If you deleted your old PowerManagement.bundle and added the new one, double- and triple-check your permissions. Also try booting into single user mode (-v -f -x) and then rebooting back into normal (-v -f) if you’re still having issues with the battery meter displaying over that blank spot where it used to be before the 10.5.5 update.

    Even “real” MacBook users are reporting issues with their 10.5.5 installation either not going to sleep, or failing to wake up. This may be more than just a “Hackintosh thing.” I’ll keep you posted as I learn more. Please note that sleep isn’t a big issue for me, especially if you’ve read some of my other comments elsewhere but I’ll see what I can do.

  148. Sammy

    For me the updating to 10.5.5 from 10.5.3 doesn’t so reinstalled everything back to 10.5.4. Gonna wait for Kalaway to release a 10.5.5 Update.

  149. Musket

    seplwAnd to those who are getting the package 0 didn√¢ÔøΩÔøΩt get an HPET error, you can recover your system without a reinstall:
    – insert your kalyway dvd and boot from it
    – at the install screen do not select to install. instead bring up the terminal window from the menu bar
    – delete the file AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from the folder /Volumes/{your installation disk}/System/Library/Extensions/

    e.g. if your system disk is labeled MachintoshHD (you can get this by typing “df -h” at the terminal command prompt), at the terminal you would type
    rm -r /Volumes/MachintoshHD/System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

    reboot and everything should be fine now.

    Confirmed, this does work.

    Ok so i am trying to install to install 10.5.5 from 10.5.3. What happens when you run the command in terminal just before you run the update? Thanks in advance.

    RichardFor battery meter issues, you need to use your old ACPI-related kexts from your backed up Extensions directory to get it working. Also, I didn’t have any luck with the Audio patcher functioning under 10.5.5 — Again, use your old kexts for all of that. Once I copied over a few key kexts using Kext Helper b7, and double-checked my kext cache, permissions, etc. after a reboot it was all functional. If you forgot to back up your Extensions before upgrading to 10.5.5, grab my Extensions from my previous article on 10.5.4 and go from there.

    I repeat, BACK UP YOUR EXTENSIONS BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

    “sudo cp -fr /System/Library/Extensions /Users//Desktop/Extensions.bkup”

    I used your AppleACPIPlatform.kext from the 10.5.4 tutorial using Kext Helper and it didn’t work. Is there a different set of AppleACPIPlatform files needed in the Extensions folder?

  158. BlurKing

    BTMacGuess I posted too soon, looks like I have another issue… laptop keyboard and mouse pad doesn’t work… didn’t realize this since I’ve been using an external wireless keyboard/mouse. maybe I should do a fresh install after I back up my personal files from my mac directory. Any ideas on how to get the built in keyboard and mouse working again?

    You need ApplePS2Controller.kext to get it to work. You should do this before you restart for the first time after installing 10.5.5 update. Otherwise you cannot use built-in keyboard and mouse…

  159. jay

    anyway to fix a broken install?
    i updated without backing up and i really don’t want to re-install everything :(

    Previously I had hosed my system on my initial upgrade to 10.5.5 so I used the kalyway 10.5.2 disk to reinstall…oly selected the power management kext… it reverted me back to 10.5.2 from my 10.5.4 but at least I was able to get back onto the os while all of my files and apps (sling, office, ilife, etc.) were still intact. I downloaded the 10.5.5 Combo update (600+MB) and was able to install it.. wouldn’t boot all the way until I did a “update -v”. Everything seems to almost be running fine now… in fact, I got my battery meter working now while it didn’t work in 10.5.4. It seems like I have 2 new issues now though – 1) Safari won’t launch saying may be missing important resources so I went out to apple’s site to download the latest version but it won’t install and puts an X over my macos partition saying it needs at least 10.3.9 to install… the 2nd issue is that everytime I try to launch the Disk Utility, it looks like it’s about to launch but then disappears. I’m thinking it may be a possible permissions issue with the Disk Utility but open to suggestions… anyone else out there running into the same issue with Safari and Disk Utility?

  163. Kyle

    Everything worked except the battery meter. I followed your instructions using Kext Helper on the PowerManagement.bundle file. Also I removed the bundle file from /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/PowerManagement.bundle.

    Rebooted and there’s a space in the menu bar for the power meter and you can select it, but the battery percentage doesn’t appear. Worked perfect on 10.5.4 before the upgrade.

    Odd… any thoughts?

  164. Richard

    Audio is back after using my original 10.5.4 AppleHDA.kext. Still working on battery meter and sleep.

  166. Richard

    I’m on 10.5.5 with the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext trick after downloading the update directly from Apple’s website. Power Management and Audio isn’t working right now but I’m on the case. Will update again soon.

  167. Marcelo

    I have two hackintoshes: an Inspiron 1525 and a ASUS P5K-E Wifi

    I updated my P5K-E hackintosh to 10.5.5 with the “while sleep 1” trick (to remove the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext).

    Searching Google I found a kext named IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext, witch disables AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext.

    So, why use this kext instead? Will it works?

  168. Sammy

    Sorry guys but i am getting frustrated. Now when i reinstall leopard i get a error when i try to install combo update 10.5.3. I will post back tomorrow if i can get this to work.

  169. Sammy

    Bad news here. Tried running command in terminal and then update like mentioned and crapped out. Re-installing right now. be back in a few.

    Here’s an image of my desktop with some info about the installation

    The only thing I haven’t managed to get back to working order is the battery icon in the top menu. It appears for a split second after logging in and then disappears. When I click on the area where it had been, the menu appears, indicating “No batteries available”. I didn’t have any trouble getting the battery icon to work correctly with 10.5.4.

    Also, in case anyone’s curious, my installation is from the original Hackbook tutorial on this site (Kalyway 10.5.2 to 10.5.3 to 10.5.4).

    Keep up the good work!

  172. mikey mike

    RichardI think I figured it out and need some people on 10.5.4 Kalyway to give it a spin.

    1) Download http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/macosx_updates/macosx1055update.html

    2) Open Terminal and type “sudo su -” without the quotes. Enter your user password and then type “while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done” again, without the quotes.

    3) Start the installer you downloaded in Step 1 and let it do it’s thing. Once it’s done, stop the script (X) and reboot your system twice. Make sure you’re (re)booting with “-v -f” flags.

    Works to PERFECTION!!!!!!! 10.5.4 TO 10.5.5. ORIGINAL VERSION KALYWAY 10.5.1

  173. Richard

    Upload some screenshots of 10.5.5 on your Inspiron!

  174. Derek

    Thanks Richard. It all worked like a charm. I’ve just reinstalled my network drivers and I’m back in business.

    Richard!!!!!! You’re a star, mate! I got my hackboob pro fully updated to 10.5.5
    The bad points are wireless not working and battery meter wiped out from the bar.. so what? Just spend a couple of minutes reinstalling it…

    Cheers and Beers!!!!!!!

    Re-install your kexts from 10.5.4 and you should be back up and running. Post some screenshots when you get it online. I forgot to bring my Time Machine drive with me and the office here is on a single T1 — needless to say a 321MB download wouldn’t be possible. I’m diving into it once i get home and there will be a lot of new information updated here in the next 24-48 hours as I get it all working.

    Keep ’em coming!

      Richard if you update your installation to use DFE-BOOT 132 and Chamaleon/EFI with extra folder you CAN upgrade without problems. Im writing this on my Inspiron fully vanilla upgraded to 10.5.5

      How about a walk through? Let’s get this baby rolling for everyone and I’ll update the article above with your method + credits, etc.

  178. Max

    Damn, i’m gonna wait for kalyway’s combo update, then. Thanks for the advice, just when I knew about 10.5.5 update I came here to read if there’s something new xD.

  179. Jeremy

    Well I did the update last night and it cause a kernel panic and it listed my Motherboard model number weird Huh…. I’m now reloading :( Ohh well …. I’ll have to wait for kalaway before I get this update. I had a Leo4all install of 10.5.2, then Kalaway combo update to 10.5.3, then I was able to do the Apple update 10.5.4. But this 10.5.5 Crashed my system :(

  180. Richard

    Rumor has it Kalyway is hard at work on releasing his own 10.5.5 Combo Update. It appears the update directly from Apple (Software Update) replaces a bunch of key kexts including Power Management which results in the system going haywire even when using the older 9.4.0 kernel from 10.5.4. I’m getting reported success with deleting AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext before running the update and DURING the update to delete the old one as well by opening Finder and waiting for the file to re-appear, deleting it, and rebooting twice after the upgrade (With -v -f as usual).

    I’m still going to play around with some other options but unless you want to be a test bed and keep hacking away at it — wait for Kalyway to release his 10.5.5 Combo Update. Feel free to leave any screenshots, error messages, success and failures here. Still working on it!

  181. Richard

    No luck here either. I’m investigating the issue and hopefully will have something working by this weekend (or sooner). To help me out, take a photograph or screenshot of the error messages you’re receiving. I am assuming everyone having the issues are trying to go from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5. if not, please let me know what version you’re running. Stay tuned for more information later this week.

  182. cell

    I tried to install this upgrade on my kalyway hackintosh. Unfortunately it does not work. So don’t try it!!! I did a timemachine backup, but on my fresh kalyway 10.5.2 installation, there is no possibility to recover the whole disc. Does anyone know how to recover the whole disc incl. users etc.?

    thanks in advance

  183. Travis

    Does package 0 didn’t get an HPET mean something to someone ? that’s the error that pops up after the error fails.

    It looks like a CPU power management error.

    Installing 10.5.5 causes a kernel panic and makes the dell unbootable

  185. BTMac

    Just tried upgrading to 10.5.5 and it stopped installing at 61% and gave me the “Hold down power button…” error to force shut down my pc….Not sure if it just plain out failed or if it was a coincidence that I turned on my external monitor (had left it plugged into the HDMI port from booting into windows earlier) that caused it to flake out…… I tried booting into safe mode with -x but looks like I gotta do another fresh install tomorrow. I never got time machine to run a back up properly….

    Anyone have any other suggestions on backing out of a botched upgrade? any other boot parameter I should try?

  186. Sammy

    Just when i got my hackbook to work right. Well i am going to wait awhile before i do anything with this. wait to see what Richard has to say about it.

  187. high

    Well, I did the update and it was a disaster…I would advise against upgrading at this point. Wait for someone to figure out how to make it work.
