  2. Hi there I successfully update OS X 10.9.0 to 10.9.2 (Niresh Distro) PC Config Specifications CPU: Intel Core i3 3,41 GHz Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX Ram: 4GB Kingston 1333 MHz GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GT 610 2GB Hard Disk: Seagate 2TB Click on the link to see the proof http://s2.postimg.org/l5lye3mmx/Schermata_2014_04_09_alle_14_08_58.png Step by Step Guide: 1) Remove any trace of GPUSensors.kext from /System/Library/Extensions and repair permissions 2) Backup NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and remove it from /System/Library/Extensions 3) Download the patched mach_kernel for 10.9.2 4) Backup your graphics kexts by using the terminal because the combo update replace the patched kext with the native one: a. Create 'backup' folder mkdir /Volumes/ NameOfOSXDisk /backup e.g.: mkdir /Volumes/MAVS/backup b. Select "Extensions" folder directory cd /Volumes/MAVS/System/Library/Extensions c. Transfer kexts to 'backup' folder cp AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* "/Volumes/MAVS/backup" e. Verify all kexts transferred: cd /Volumes/MAVS/backup ls 5) Copy the patched mach kernel, the graphics kext backup folder (which you find it in your OS X partition) and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in a usb stick 6) Download OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 Update (Combo) and install it Now there are two way to continue the upgrading process, you can use Windows or the terminal of the Niresh distro usb installation 7.1) If you have a Windows partition in your pc: a) First download Paragon for Windows, install it and reboot your pc Now you should see the OS X partition in My Computer c) Plug the usb stick where you have the copied files d) Now replace the mach_kernel in the Mac partition, then copy/replace NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and graphics kext in OS X Drive/System/Library/Extensions e) Now reboot to your OS X partition and Mavericks should be working 7.2) If you want use the terminal: a) Boot to the usb installer After the boot completed open the terminal plug and the usb where you copied the previous files c) Then follow the instructions: a. Verify secondary USB stick location: diskutil list b. Mount it: diskutil mount /dev/diskXsY e.g.: diskutil mount /dev/disk2s1 Terminal will confirm the name of the disk mounted c. Select directory of USB stick's root: cd /Volumes/USBStick/ e.g.: cd /Volumes/CRUZER/ d. Copy over patched mach_kernel [and NullCPUPowerManagement] cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/NameOfOSXDisk/mach_kernel" e.g.: cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/MAVS/mach_kernel" cp -R /Volumes/CRUZER/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext "/Volumes/MAVS/System/Library/Extensions" e. Copy the graphics kext cd /Volumes/USBStick/backup cp -R AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* "/Volumes/MAVS/System/Library/Extensions" f. Quit terminal and reboot to your OS X Partition 8) Now you should have Mavericks fully updated to 10.9.2. If you have some graphical issue or Audio issue or something else, use Multibeast or search on google the suitable kext for your requirements.
