Vanilla and patched Yosemite kernels + patched AICPUPM kexts

Recommended Posts

For those who need an extracted copy of the Yosemite kernel to build their manual Chameleon/Enoch-based USB installers, here are copies of the various kernels that have come out so far (pre-release/DP kernels excluded):


Vanilla kernels for Core2Duo/Core2Quad, Arrandale and Sandy/Ivy Bridge CPUs:


Patched kernels for Haswell, Broadwell and Skylake CPUs:


Good working AMD kernels:


Patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement kexts for Sandy/Ivy Bridge CPUs:


Patched IOGraphicsFamily kexts for Intel HD GPUs:



NB: kernels go to /System/Library/Kernels as "kernel"; patched kexts go to /System/Library/Extensions
