Video: ATI48xxInjector.kext

Networking: IONetworkingFamily, RealtekR1000SL

Other: FakeSMC.kext, IOACHIBlockStorageInjector, Ispcidrv.kext (Ispcidrv.kext installed via myHack).

DSDT: See below. Needs it for USB support.


Note on DSDT: I used a patcher that had things for this board. Yes, poo on me. Find one on your own. It should work, mine does. Needed for easy USB support, sleep, etc.


Note on Audio: I do not think the audio works OOB. I have not tried to get it working. I do not care for Realtek audio on Windows or OS X, so I use a USB dongle that came with my headphones. They work natively with OS X and the sound is superior to the onboard Realtek (in my opinion).


Logitech USB To 3.5mm Jack Stereo Headset Audio Adapter. They cost around two dollars.


Source: App Store Lion App/DMG


Installer: 16gig USB Flash Drive, myHack 2.0 RC1




Note: This guide expects the user to have basic knowledge of OS X in general and knowing the base install process of OS X is better.


1. Pay for and download Lion App.

2. Extract InstallESD.dmg.

3. Run myHack.

4. Choose Lion Boot Disk and 16 gig USB Flash drive.

5. Choose to install my own custom Extra Folder.

5.25: Create new folder on the desktop.

5.50: Put myHack, Lion install App, InstallESD.dmg and the Extra folder into this folder.

5.75: Copy loaded folder to USB Drive.

6. Reboot.

7. Boot from USB.

8. GUID Partition the drive with two partitions, Extended (Journaled).

9. Install OS.

10. Reboot.

11. Boot from USB Drive, choose newly installed OS X partition at Cham Screen.

12. Setup User Account.

13. Go to USB Drive, run myHack-Install Cham/Extra Only

14. Choose newly installed OS X partition.

15. Reboot.

16. Test to make sure things work.

17. Reboot.

18. Boot from USB Drive to the Installer App.

19. Load Disk Utilities.

20. Create New Image of the working partition. Save to second partition.

21. Reboot to normal OS X install.

22. Copy the Created Image to the USB Flash Drive.


Now you have a freshly installed OS X with a USB Bootable Flash Drive holding the Lion Install App, a copy of your Extra folder and myHack. The Image is more for easy backup, but with an install time of less than 10 min on this setup, that step can be skipped.


Attached: All kexts needed. REMINDER! Get your own DSDT. If I ever quit failing, I'll edit my own and upload it.
