OSx86 Project sold-out - InsanelyMac sale, my 2 ct

Why do I and the other developer work on OSx86? Because we like the exploration of new things, possibilitys and finding solutions, because of the spirit of somthing called hacking. This is what we do. We all do it for free, for gaining wisdom and defeat challanges and lately to bring people to the ultiamte way in computing, OSX. I always refused to professional enviorments in any scene, to much profession make it business and worst if things aimed to make money come into play. But with the news item on insanelymac, which said it was for sale, I really got my belives I had prooven, named that ths scene has gone partly to beeing business a long time ago.

The auction text said 140$ a day (!) were made from the Ads on this site, this is like 50k $ a year. How many new projects, servers, opensource projects, incredible ideas and latly progress for the community could have been financed with this? How many things for the people could have been done? Insteed the connected projects even needed to bag for server donations. This whole sale has shown me up one thing, InsanelyMac long time lost it's spirit of hacking, it became a commecial business.

75k$ have been spent on this forum, why? Because a good income has been predicted from this site. This is what we became, a simple way for investment, for making money. I refuse this from the deepest corner fo my heart. I get sick than thinking of this. This whole project is based upon the work of many people, Maxxuss, Vitaly, Netkas, mine and yes, also on the work of Apple. You cannot sell this work, you cannot sell this project nor the community. To long big money has been made on the back of our work. I feel abused now, there is no other word for this. I want to erase this palce from my memorys, it has not more spirit than any random cracks site on the net.

The last point which makes me really angry is that userdata of +80.000 members like the auction stated are sold to someone unknown for pure profit, even worse this is a hacking project still. I am just sad, sad for me and my friends from the developers and well yes, also sad for Apple (on those back this all exist but who ever tolerate our work). I even wish sometimes never ever got to this project.

From this day I will no longer post anything on insanelymac anymore. I will go back to the place all began for me, the With me will go the core of developers. Currently it's even possible for me and some others to leave this scene in general because all ideas we had have been dragged through dirt with all the things shown up, the spirit has been blown away. I really need to go deep inside me now and think about all the things happened and if I still can continue knowing the idea behind all this was abused in such a way for pure commecial intrest.

Fixing some problems, Q&A.

1) if you have problems with dmg mounting than check you have System.kext version - 8.9.1(from 10.4.9) , if you have 8.9.1 kernel installed
2) if you have in log something like: bad system call or mdnsresponser cycling then check you have installed r3d3.kext and permissions is ok.
to check r3d3 boot to single user mode (-s) then run
kextload -t /System/Library/Extension/r3d3.kext
see output to solve you problems, if it's permissions problems so try step 9 from guide
3) if you have kernel panic with acpi kext in it, so check you have 10.4.9 System.kext (see step 1)
and try different AppleACPIPlatform.kext

10.4.9 with 8.9.1 update guide.

you need to have sse3 system for it
1) download kernel, got to irc channel #1049 at
read topic, choose sse3 or sse2 kernel, depends on your cpu. 2) download apple update (for intels) or tubgirl update form thepiratebay (for amds)
3) no more need this step
4) backup you /System/Library/Extensions folder(cp -r /System/Library/Extensions /1048/) , backup your current kernel - cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel_old , install update, do NOT PRESS RESTART button after it
5) replace kernel with one dloaded before (cp /where/you/unpack/kernel /mach_kernel)
6) recover applesmbios.kext - cp -R /1048/Extensions/AppleSMBios.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ and remove /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagment.kext . Warning amd users if you have such errors - "using 5242 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers", so you need to use 10.4.8 ACPIPlatform.kext.
7) no more need this step
8) delete kext - rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext - if you will ask that question on irc, i'll kick you.
9) repair kexts permissions -
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions
chown -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions
10) reboot and pray
11) if you have diskarb errors, than boot with -s , mount -uw /, rm /etc/rc.installer_cleanup
12) pray a lot
13) no more need this step for newest kernels, but maybe sometime usable(vmware e.g.) General
