  1. FYI there is a performance improvement with gt525m on laptops that purposely don't have optimus (meaning HD3000 like in my case is permanently disabled) like on mine (Toshiba Satellite L755). The device id obviously needs to be updated from the gt520 device id. I'm probably going to try tweaking this a little more, but I do have to say that things seem to run smoother compared to just disabling AGPM. I also noticed a fix in regards to waking from sleep with the display. Sort of surprising. Whatever - it fixed that issue so that's all I care about. And yeah like I said before, this won't help with most people with gt525m because most laptops with Intel core CPU + NVIDIA have optimus, though there are a few exceptions out there (like mine). You just need to know which model to get

    Nawcom Mod CD v0.3

    HAHAHA man, you guys still using my CD? I just noticed it listed on the top downloads of the week. I made this what, 2 years ago? Well hey as long as it works. Also, as an FYI this is the last build I made; it may me more updated than this one available here. I didn't look at what this version on this site contains. http://nawcom.com/osx86/ModCD/OSX86_ModCD-091512-143758.iso.zip Also for ModUSB Linux and OS X versions: http://nawcom.com/osx86/ModUSB/ Remember kids, this was made so it modifies and injects new pkgs into the retail DVD install, including chameleon, etc. SO do not use it to boot up the installed OS unless there's an issue. Also remember that if your hardware didn't exist (especially CPU) when this was made, you will have to use some boot flags to get it going, and for AMD processors that didn't exist (Bulldozer, etc) - well you're out of luck. One of these days I should just update this so the kernel supports the modern CPUs, if people are going to keep using it. Have fun. http://blog.nawcom.com just be back up within the next week. Redesigned, more info on projects I've been working on and will work on, etc. -nawcom
  3. Version 1.0

    For Mountain Lion DP2 - OSInstall framework and OSInstall.mpkg patched so you can install on hard drives with DOS MBR-style partition tables, instead of GUID. board-id check is also removed, so no requirement is needed in an smbios.plist. Tested and works just fine. Just unpack to the root of the Install media?s volume with sudo. Example: sudo tar xzvf ~/Downloads/MountainLion_DP2_MBR_Patch.tar.gz -C /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Base\ System Or graphically unpack with Archive Utility and drag and drop. I just always show the command line method because it reserves the original root:wheel ownership. bleh. Have fun.

    Just posting the patched OSInstall framework and OSInstall.mpkg for the OS X 10.7.3 installer from the App Store who also need to install Lion to their disks that have non-GUID partition tables. I also took off the board-id check just for those who might find it useful. Tested and works just fine. Just unpack to the root of the Install media?s volume with sudo. Example: sudo tar xzvf ~/Downloads/10.7.3_Installer_MBR_Patch.tar.gz -C /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Base\ System
  6. hey I saw your blog and tried to use your M11X Lion installer, I saw the directions from

    InsanelyMac Forum > m11x R1 Lion Install Guide

    I had dual boot Win7 and Sno Leo, I already had a running 10.6.4 on my m11x and I erased the whole partition so I can have a clean Lion install, My setup boots first with OSX with chameleon but when i try to boot using the usb I get boot0 error, do you know of a solution so I can remedy this ?

    thanks in advance

  7. Version 1.0

    SleepEnabler for 10.6.x / 10.7.x updated for 10.7.1 and 10.7.2 Beta For source code, go to http://code.google.com/p/xnu-sleep-enabler/ as it's been updated. The only thing added is a case to default to the latest, so you shouldn't have to worry about updating it if the next kernel version has the same PM_DISPATCH_VERSION as the last, in which this this the case for 10.7.0 -> 10.7.1 as well as the latest 10.7.2 Beta (xnu-1699.24.8). Have fun.
  8. Version 1.0

    4,655 downloads

    Binpatched OSInstall framework and OSInstall.mpkg to let you install to non-GUID partition tables for the Lion GM release. I made it for the Alienware M11x Installer I released but I might as well provide this separately. How to install it: simply unpack the archive to your Lion GM Install media with sudo. Example: sudo tar xjvf ~/Downloads/Lion_OSInstall_GM.tar.bz2 -C /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Base\ System

    I 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. http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=640
  11. Version 1.0

    7,466 downloads

    Those who just need SleepEnabler for 10.6.7, here you go ? it has been tested on i386 and x86_64 architectures and works without any special boot flags. This has been updated to work with the Darwin 10.7.1 kernel that Sandy Bridge people are using, as well as the Darwin 10.7.0 kernel which OS X 10.6.7 uses by default. http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=640
