Update 10.9.2
1 1

Question

Is it safe to update to 10.9.2? Seems like an important security patch. 

 

Thanks!

Hi gabrielk.

 

Yesterday I have updated my hackintosh to 10.9.2 (I downloaded update 10.9.2 not ComboUpdate 10.9.2), but after the update I could not boot again, my PC was continuosly restarting without booting.

Now, I have restored my time machine backup and I'm on 10.9.1 again.

Hi gabrielk.

 

Yesterday I have updated my hackintosh to 10.9.2 (I downloaded update 10.9.2 not ComboUpdate 10.9.2), but after the update I could not boot again, my PC was continuosly restarting without booting.

Now, I have restored my time machine backup and I'm on 10.9.1 again.

 

Hello guys,

 

I am using my hackintosh/Niresh 10.9.1 Mavericks and I have managed to upgrade yesterday to 10.9.2 - but BEWARE!

 

The update was ~700 mb - and it seems it`s replaced the kernel and a lot of other stuff - after the update I got Kernel Panic and I was only able to boot in -v -x (verbose & safe mode). I have downloaded the update straight from the App Store - in fact I almost forgot I am using a hackintosh... :)

 

BUT

 

Once I have booted in Safe Mode I opened the Chameleon Wizard and I have enabled Graphics Enabler=yes

 

After this I was able to boot in 10.9.2

But again - please BEWARE and use this ONLY AT YOUR RISK as Niresh did not submit yet a patched 10.9.2 or official Instructions.

 

And I am using a rather old setup Intel G41 chipset MoBo with a Core 2Duo E7500 process (so no fancy bios DDTS/etc playing).

Just an update for yall, I did manage to update without any issues. No bootflags or Chameleon wizardry required besides my audio drivers.

After testing different alternatives, finally I have updated to Mavericks 10.9.2.

I have renamed my mach_kernel as mach_kernel_ok

I have made a backup of /System/Library/Extensions as Extensions.ok

I have updated with OSXUpdCombo10.9.2.dmg

After applying the update I have rebooted with the Niresh Mavericks USB Installer.

Then enter in Terminal and renamed the mach_kernel as mach_kernel_bad.

Renamed mach_kernel_ok as mach_kernel

Moved /System/Library/Extensions as  /System/Library/Extensions.bad

Moved /System/Library/Extensions.ok as  /System/Library/Extensions

 

Boot again with -v -x -f flags

After that repaired permissions with Kexts Wizard and Rebuilded System Caches.

Reboot again and that's all.

 

Regards ;)

mount -u -w /dev/disksX /mnt/point (X being whatever the number of your hfs partition is)

mv mach_kernel mach_kernel_bad

cp mach_kernel_ok mach_kernel

(now that we have the kernel taken care of)

mv /System/Library/Extensions /System/Library/Extensions.bad

cp -r /System/Library/Extensions.ok /System/Library/Extensions

Is there a way to use the updated 10.9.2 drivers and stuff?
