About This File

This is the offical vanilla kernel from Mavericks 10.9.2

It has been patched to allow it to boot on haswell motherboards without kernel panics

As its the offical kernel you will have no problems signing into apple services like facetime

Tested on Acer V3 772G

The following pearl patches have been used

# for xpcm related panic/reboot 10.9.x kernelperl -pi -e 's|\x74\x6c(\x48\x83\xc7\x28\x90\x8b\x05..\x5e\x00\x85\x47\xdc)\x74\x54(\x8b\x4f\xd8\x45\x85\xc0\x74\x08\x44\x39\xc1\x44\x89\xc1)\x75\x44(\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x57\xf8\x48\x8b\x47\xe8\x48\x85\xc0\x74\x06\x48\xf7\xd0\x48\x21\xc2\x48\x0b\x57\xf0\x49\x89\xd1\x49\xc1\xe9\x20\x89\xd0\x8b\x4f\xd8\x4c\x89\xca)(\x0f\x30\x8b\x4f\xd8\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x17\x48\x83\xc7\x30\xff\xce)\x75\x99(\x5d\xc3)\x90{7}|\x74\x73${1}\x74\x5b${2}\x75\x4b${3}\x66\x81\xf9\xe2\x00\x74\x02${4}\x75\x92${5}|g' mach_kernel

copy mac_kernel (found in the zip) to your mac hard drive replacing the one that is already there

note this is for computers that use the haswell chipset with intel cpus like the i7 running 10.9.2 only

if your mac boots then you do not need this unless you cant log into imessage facetime and so on then you can try this kernel instead

If you experience the mac auto rebooting at startup (not actually booting) or kernel panics at startup this may solve it

?

theres two ways of doing this

?

1- via windows

install macdrive so you can view mac hard drives in windows

enable show hidden files in the folder options in your windows control panel

open your mac hard drive and backup your old mac_kernel then delete mac_kernel (its in the root of the hard drive not in any folder)

copy the modified one and paste it where the old one was

?

?

2 - via mac terminal

copy your mac_kernal to a usb stick - if doing via windows make sure usb stick is fat32

boot your mac with your usb installer like you were going to install mac again

when you are then install screen open the terminal

navigate to your usb stick

type the following replacing Macintosh HD with the name of your mac hard drive

cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/mach_kernel"

It will only work with mavericks 10.9.2 - if you are using any other version you will have patch that mac_kernel
