JaS permanent fix for new Rosetta

October 26th, 2006 No comments

This is for people who have rosetta crashing, mine is workin well, just tried Photoshop, Word, Powerpoint, etc…

No crash at ALL!

Seen my previous post about first boot in 10.4.8 with new kernel? Well, it seems you have to do this command at each boot (update_prebinding),
otherwise Rosetta will crash on the second PPC app you run after boot.

So guess what, JaS just got a fix for that, so it will work after every reboot
and you don’t have to worry about it anymore.

GMA950 full resolution fix – 10.4.8 kexts/kernel

October 25th, 2006 4 comments

My GMA 950 integrated graphic card was supported out-of-the-box!
Just a glitch, I was not able to choose a resolution bigger than 1024×768…

Here is a quick fix for that:

Just replace the 10.4.8 AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext
with the one from 10.4.4 (also on JaS 10.4.6/7 DVD).

In Terminal:

sudo -s
cd /System/Library/Extensions
mv AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext.original
cp -r /Users/skr3dii/tmp/AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext
chown -R root:wheel AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext
chmod -R 755 AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext

cd ..
rm Extensions.*

Now I want the 10.4.8 IONetworkingFamily.kext, stay tuned…

Semthex – 10.4.8 kernel sources released

October 25th, 2006 3 comments

My friend semthex just finished his Kernel! Congratulations!
I know you did some late nights to achieve this, bro! Has I did for testing it :)

This kernel does NOT need HPET nor NX !!!

Get sources here: http://semthex.freeflux.net/download/
Change log: semthex.freeflux.net/changelog/

Instructions to setup your test partition: link
Instructions to compile the kernel: link


Semthex has not included the TPM key in the sources,
so if you want to run the GUI, you need to replace commpage.c.

This kernel doesn’t decrypt apple encrypted binaries.
You need the 10.4.8 decrypts to run the GUI.

Please don’t ask decrypts here.
It’s not legit while modding the open source code is.

Mifki kernel – Just tested myself!

October 24th, 2006 3 comments

Just tested this new kernel on my own hack! Works like a charm! Congrats mifki!
You need a box with HPET / SSE3 / NX to run this kernel
You need to replace the AppleSMBIOS.kext with the one from JaS 10.4.7 DVD.

If you want an alternative compatible with Non NX, SSE2 and non HPET,
wait for semthex kern.
