Let's get started...

I use the myhack method for this build, so follow instructions to build your USB installer, set BIOS settings and run the OSX Installation from here http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/

  1. After creating your USB installer, run myHack again
  2. Select Install Extra and point to the Extra folder attached (extract it first) Extra.zip
  3. Boot up system with USB installer disk (you'll see a white, then a gray screen with cursor only, just wait)
  4. Eventually you get to the screen to select Language
  5. Format the HDD per instruction from myHack site
  6. Select "Use my Own" when prompt and point to the Extra folder in the root of the USB installer drive
  7. Delete the (3) files when prompt
  8. A few minutes later, it will automatically reboot. Remove the USB installer drive
  9. Complete the post install

Update:

Successfully upgraded to 10.9.1 without any apparent issue. Replace AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB in E/E if needed.

New patched AppleHDA version 2.5.3 AppleHDA.kext.zip
