Moving right along… A bug was reported a few times that I was sure I had resolved in beta testing, but with all the focus on Lion installation I seem to have overlooked some of the code for Snow Leopard installation in the release candidates (RC1/RC2).
So after releasing RC2 which was to address a number of issues, I went over this forum post again and decided to attempt to reproduce the error. Which I did. I have fixed this problem. myHack 2.0 RC3 will now prepare working installers from OS X 10.6 and 10.6.3 sources without any problems.
Also I have tweaked a few other things – I made a couple of small cosmetic adjustments to the output log and I have removed SleepEnabler.kext from the generic extra. I have also replaced ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext with a Patched_10.7_AppleRTC.kext that I made. I have tested it and confirmed it is backwards compatible with Snow Leopard. Which is great because the ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext was based on source code from OS X 10.5 and causes kernel panics on some newer hardware.
I triple checked to verify everything works properly with an OS X 10.6 installation by creating and booting to a freshly made installer several times. It works perfectly.
Summary of changes from myHack 2.0 Release Candidate 2:
- Bugfix: OS X 10.6/10.6.3 Installers will now function correctly.
- Removed SleepEnabler.kext and ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext
- Added Patched_10.7_AppleRTC.kext
- Some minor cosmetic refinements to output log.
- Added tr to included utilities.
