Hackintosh Software Updates

April 15, 2010 Leave a comment

It’s been a busy week for Snow Leopard updates, with the 10.6.3 V1.1 Combo Update closely followed by Security Update 2010-003. Both have been tested on three of my hackintosh machines, the original P35-DS3R hack, the Acer Aspire One hackbook and the as yet undocumented hackinfireplace. The only update that caused any issue was the last, requiring the AppleHDA.kext from 10.6.2 to be re-installed to get audio back. I had to do the same after the original 10.6.3 update so it wasn’t anything unexpected.

As usual backups of all three systems were made before installing updates. Where only one hard drive was available Disk Utility was used to resize the existing partition and add a new partition to the empty space, which then became the backup partition. It’s not as good as a separate hard drive but for a quick ‘just incase the update causes a problem’ backup it’s fine.
