—”If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”…
June 9, 2012
You know the saying… When I upgraded to the latest version of OS X (10.7.4) I brilliantly forgot to rollback Toleda’s audio kexts which made HDMI audio possible. I have copies so I could replace them, but in addition to HDMI audio I also want to enable all the other port & jacks ie: headphones, microphone, line out. You know, make this thing more functional. Pshh, can’t be that hard right? Welp, halfway through the process of editing new kexts, I did a restart (to allow OS X to register the changes) and now I can’t boot into Lion. Some errors having to do with “sound assertions” and that infamous “kernel panic” screen of death hackintosh-ers know and hate. I think this is now a more widespread problem than a few files. It also seems as though I can’t even do a simple Time Machine restore. UniBeast isn’t booting either, so much for sneaking in the back door. I’m not going to wipe the hard drive and start fresh. That just seems silly, there has to be way to get in and make repairs. Windows & Linux are still there so Trinity isn’t totally useless, it just doesn’t feel like much of a hackintosh right now without OS X. Now I’m sad. Why couldn’t I have just left it alone?
(because knowledge is power that’s why…)
