johnboysdeals replied to markashburner's question in Hackintosh Yosemitehi i'm having the same issue, i followed the instructions from the link above to extract the kernel, but thats all the instructions tell you, what I still don't know is how to replace the kernel once it's extracted and with what? I assume you replace with Yosemite kernel yes? But how do you do that? I've been trying to replace it with pacifist and just drag and drop which lets you replace the extracted kernel alright, but I still cannot replace the kernel inside el capitan installer as the el capitan kernel is still there after you extract it with pacifist. Am I missing something here? I know I can just go and download macpawn version of el capitan to save me all this hassle, but I would like to know how to do this for future reference. Thanks in advance for any help.
