Updating from 10.9 to 10.9.4, how to proceed?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a working Hackintosh on 10.9 right now using Niresh's distro, and I wonder what are the steps that I need to take in order to update to 10.9.4 without any issues. I have a fairly compatible build which you can see here http://valid.x86.fr/66qut7


Thanks in advance!

Just do an update via Software Update, after the update you need to reinstall your Audio and Video kext. If you have wifi you need to reinstall that kext too. Good Luck

Its a straight forward update.

Just check for updates and App Store will update Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 to 10.9.4.


You may or may not have to install few kext after the update.

Hi, I just updated and I have an issue. After I updated it rebooted and it was fine. Everything was working except my video, so I installed it again from the same installation as I did before ( using this http://www.hackintoshosx.com/file/3711-amd-radeon-r9-270-series/ ) and now when I rebooted to finish the installation of the driver this happened:



Can someone help me with that error? I tried using slide=0, but nothing happened. :(

How can I update Kext? How does that work? I'm looking for one update for it. There's nothing on the app... I'm lost :(

Try booting with -f & -x and if it went through then remove the kext you installed for video.

Rebuild the cache and try booting with -v and see if there are any further errors.

You can also boot to single user mode to remove the kext.

Also not all kext are compatible with all version of OS X and hence you may need to find the kext which is compatible with your version of OS X.

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
