Kaveri APUs + OSX

Hello Hackintoshers, 

 

long time lurker + hacker here.  I am curious if anyone has tried getting 10.8 (or 10.9) to run on an APU.  I have read threads on other sites claiming successful installations.  

 

I think a nice a8/a10 Kaveri machine would make a very nice affordable hackintosh if possible.  I know OSX much prefers Intel and last I checked you needed to do certain hacks to get it to run on AMD, or you needed to use Legacy software.  Just checking in to see if this has changed,  I am trying to ditch Intel as much as possible after some recent "back door" revelations brought forward by the Linux community.  Would be awesome to get the APU power in an OSX laptop for ~$400

 

Assuming it hasn't been done succesfully, but let me know!

As far as Intel CPUs go, it's more a bit more than a "preference", don't you think?

 

AMD CPUs can only supported by modified kernels so the same naturally applies to these new AMD APUs. OS X on these has never been mentioned here...
