By JohnStandard 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

This archive contain "mach_kernel" and "system.kext"
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.
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

from the TeaTeam tea blog site:
Kernel mach_kernel 10.2.0 for netbooks based on Intel Atom.
Everyone knows what happened update 10.6.2. As well all know that Intel Atom is not supported by the new kernel. Well, let's wait when http://opensource.apple.com will source xnu. While there is no source, I made a patch for mach_kernel 10.2.0. This "dirty bithack", so claims are not accepted. The patch is designed exclusively for Atom-based netbook!
I do not update the working system to version 10.6.2, all the field tests carried out on what was at hand, namely, the unfolded stick to Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server. The installer is loaded with a patched kernel.
If someone uses the kernel and updated from previous versions of Mac OS, test the given kernel and otpi***es in the comments, I'll be very grateful.
Yes, patches are only 32-bit piece.
Shows atom as Core 2 Solo.

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 !)

To Show the kernel, named Mach_kernel.
You replace this with the one on the partition.
