myHack 3.3

This version is now deprecated, consult the myHack guide for a link to the latest version.

This version was downloaded 33971 times.

I meant to get this out before the official Mavericks release but I kept it in beta testing a bit longer to ensure it was completely stable. File transfer progress is vastly superior to previous versions and also faster (2-5x faster in all of our tests). It was my original intention to release this as version 3.2 but I bumped the version number to ensure there is no confusion.

Note: Several users have reported a “Selection does not appear to be a valid OS X installation source error”. Ensure you are pointing to the Install OS X or InstallESD.dmg if you are pointing myHack to a .dmg which *contains* the Install OS X that will cause the error.

Also please note that you should not run from the .dmg it is distributed on. You should copy it to your local disk first.

I will add checks to warn users who accidentally make these mistakes to myHack in the next release to provide additional error prevention to users, but I did not want to wait to release this version any longer so for now these warnings should be enough.

The download is available on the guide page.

About the myHack forum.

It is no secret that the myHack forum has been ruined by spammers over the past few months. I had taken steps to resolve the problem but it was inadequate. The larger issue is that I do not have the time required to single handedly manage the forum properly but it is of importance to me to provide adequate support to myHack users. To that end I have decided to merge the myHack forum with my good friends at OSXLatitude. We have been working closely together for the last year to deliver solutions which benefit both myHack users and their own users and it is a logical progression of our cooperative efforts to bring simplified hackintosh methods to the masses.

The merge will happen over the next 24 hours, during which period both the myHack forums and the OSXLatitude forums will be offline temporarily. Stay tuned.


Merge complete! I’d like to thank the rest of the OSXLatitude crew for the work they did during the merge, that was a lot of spam to handle… Sheesh.

All of you with an account should have gotten an email from them, your existing accounts should still work, if not, create a new one. We look forward to seeing you there! :)
