Current Donation Goals
Standard fixes are included, plus a few extra stuff:
Built-in kernel blacklister automatically blacklists bad kexts from loading. Therefore you don't need to use a disabler to disable it manually
bigger dmesg Which translates to a larger log file so that you can troubleshoot easily
uuid patching/fix Eliminates the need of UUID kext or specifying manually
cpu cache detection
reboot fix- Eliminates the need of OpenHaltRestart and fixes shutdown/reboot issue
sse3emu -SSE3 emulator for SSE2 processors . Bear in mind that most of the applications in Snow Leopard run fine with this emulator.?
Some things added:
some support for the new 6 core i7
For people wanting to use XCode apps, I decided to add all the CHUD kexts to the kext blacklist. This means no more kp hell when installing and dealing with the development tools. If anyone thinks this is something that shouldn't be added, let me know.
Features in this specific package:
If you have SleepEnabler installed, your SleepEnabler kext will get updated. If you don't use it, don't worry about it - it won't get installed.
All of the CPUIDs in the new versions of programs from the 10.6.3 update will get patched. this means you don't need to deal with the hell regarding iTunes, etc.?
(The actual patcher program also gets installed (/usr/local/bin/patcher, you can run from anyware via Terminal) as well as the CPUID text file (/Library/CPUIDs/*) Though this is only important to people who love control and want to be able to run it themselves :-P - this is all automated in the installer regardless. Unfortunately we still havent gotten on the fly patching working, so this is a reasonable fix for it for now.)
I do make cpuid files for updates and keep them online http://nawcom.com/osx86/cpuids/ for AMD people to use regarding updates as well as a nice frontend to Maxxuss' patcher app, drag and drop a cpuid.txt file onto the app to launch it - just like Taruga's HDA Patcher.
Anyways, good luck to all. Source diffs are always available. -> http://nawcom.com/osx86/files/10.6/Kernels...-1504.3.12.diff

By wakwakVery thnx for Dmitrik aka Bronzovka from Applelife.ru
all IDs code from anv and try not ask stupid questions
mach_kernel V5 fix for old 1 core AMD cpus
NEW KERNEL mach_kernel V4 Bronzovka supported all old Intel AMD core but without emulator Sse3
mach_kernel for AM2 socket AMD cores Athlon 64 X2 3XXX-6000+
mach_kernel 10.7.3 AMD for another AMD kernels with AM3 socket cores
For AMD family 15-16 Model 6
32 bit its -legacy
64 bit Sse-3 just boot
always boot with flags kernel cannot use KernelCache
-legacy UserKernelCache=No -v -f
Here is the kernel for 10.6.8. After installing it,Apple menu -> Update to 10.6.8 will works perfectly. (For me worked..)
Its an installer package by nawcom.
By ArobasefrA new kernel, made from sources of Voodoo XNU and from qoopz is available by Nawcom.
This kernel includes emulation SEE2/SEE3 for old processors like Pentium 4's.
It is also compatible with AMD processors, and after Nawcom, atoms should work well. (verify)
Everything is integrated with an installer that you must start after the update (and before rebooting !)
By nawcomI took some time today to apply the old 10.6.6 diff to the new OS X 10.6.7 /Darwin 10.7.0 xnu source code, Here you go ? I will post the diff later. I will see if AnV has anything new added to this ? as of now it?s the same fixes that the previous kernel had.

You replace this with the one on the partition.
By TheConnacticThis is the result of months of development in this topic: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/281450-mountain-lion-kernel-testing-on-amd/.
The latest kernel, which i'm posting here as amd_kernel, was built by Andy Vandjick, but that wouldn't be possible without the amazing work by Sinetek (who made the first ssse3 emulator ever, enabling non FX-series CPUs to run OSX in 64-bit kernel mode), R:A:W:x86, Bronzovka (who made Lion on AMD possible) and the Voodoo team. Many thanks to them all!
The correct boot flags to run the kernel are amd_kernel arch=x86_64. FX-series users must also add the correct busratio. The kernel is not working properly with nVidia graphics (and some ATI ones), so their users must also either add -x (safe mode) boot flag or disable GeforceGA.plugin and GLDriver.bundle in System/Library/Extensions.
FX users may also try the 12.0 AMD kernel by sinetek, which is confirmed to be working nicely with newer AMD CPUs (Bulldozer and Piledriver chips). Bad news are that, since it's a 12.0 (10.8.0) kernel, it won't work with 10.8.2 without mods; specifically, it's necessary replacing the 10.8.2 AppleFileSystemDriver.kext, IOACPIFamily.kext and perhaps AppleACPIPlatform.kext by the 10.8.0 versions of each one.
Good luck to all and please post feedback. The sources are also included for anyone wanting to build the kernel from the sources, or help improve it - there's still a lot of work to do.
By RayFlowerAll credits goes to AnV, I just though I'd upload them here so they will be accessible after the rapidshare links dies of old age or cancer.
This is the first AMD capable kernel that allows you to use 32bit software along with 64bit so it basically has the same functionality as a mac booted in 32 bit, you're still stuck with 32bit kexts but its a hell of a improvement and its getting close to be as usable on AMD systems as Leopard.
Be careful to RTFM, in order to boot you'll have to at least add to your ?/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist Kernel Flags:
patcher_opts=2 , also consider to add?arch=i386 -force64?

The full package included, as usual.
I've also added support for VIA (Nano) cpu's (the cpuid of those can be modified by a few rdmsr/wrmsr instructions).
Furthermore I included the new SSE3 emulator as default (thanks for the person who supplied it, I forgot his name, credits go to him).
It also includes the custom dyld.
BTW: Sorry for the late entry but at work my workstation wouldn't allow rapidshare so I had to bring along my netbook (to link it to the corporate WLAN network, then it worked).
Installed and run
if you meet "dyld: shared cached file was build against a different libSystem.dylib, ignoring cache"
By regsReboot = working
Shutdown = working
No icon bugs
No pink icons on launchpad
works on OS X 10.9/10.9.1
works on old AMD CPU's
works on FX CPU's
By regaehere is the new kernel from snow leopard os x 10.6.8 developers.
its working on my sandy bridge build,
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe B3
use at ur own risk.
By PROTOCOLX10.6.5 legacy kernel for INTEL/AMD (32+64bit)
This is the latest xnu release:
- Supports everything the previous legacy kernel support
+ 64bit working kernel (Intel/AMD) thanks to Azimutz
By maya77No full AMD on-the-fly cpuid patcher yet, and not all of Andy's patches have been implemented yet, but it's fixed for generic 32/64-bit support...
More to come...
- Made by Andy (AnV)
- Based on Qoopz kernel
This project is a fork of the XNU kernel utilized by Darwin and Mac OS X whose goal is to provide additional support for hardware and functionality to users which use XNU kernel driven operating systems.
To use this kernel, you must install the corresponding "system.kext". Also, you won't be able to mount DMG without a "Seatbelt" fix.

The first and to my knowledge the only kernel for Ivy Bridge processors and Snow Leopard.
For the moment it is only for test. If it works I think to do a CD to install snow leopard. I know that already Mountain Lion went out but as I there are persons who have programs that alone work in Snow Leopard for this reason I did this kernel.
For the moment you need a hard disk that has the version 10.6.8 pre-installed and only change the kernel and say to me if it works.
All this work is based on work nawcom, qoopz and kaitek.
10.6.8 new patch.zip is the source code
sorry for my english
Update: The wait finally end, I bring out the boot cd to install snow leopard on Ivy Bridge processor. Please try it and let me know, I can not try because I do not have ivy bridge anymore.
