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
