Main System Updates:
Using software updater to apply main system updates is easier with iATKOS ML2 for most computers.
Some drivers and patches will be overwritten and some will be non-functional, so computers that need these drivers and patches will need to take some actions after updating. These packages are:
- SSD Trim support: You will have to reinstall /Library/Temp/IOAHCIFamilyTrim.kext after updating.
- Sound: Delete /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext after updating before first reboot, otherwise you may face kernel panic.
- nVidia's 10.8.2 drivers: They will be overwritten after the update. If you need nVidia's drivers then download them from nvidia.com (if exists for your new updated system) and install after update before reboot, or do not update your system until nvidia releases drivers for the new 10.8 update.
- OpenCL RAM 2GB+ patch: This patch may be non-functional after update. You will have to wait/follow OSX86 world for the patch for the new OS X version.
- Disable nVidia drivers: You will need to erase new nvidia drivers coming with the update.
- Disable ATI drivers: You will need to erase new ATI drivers coming with the update.
- HD 3000/4000: Intel 7 chipset motherboards (77/75) with HD 3000 and Intel 6 chipset motherboards (61/65/67/68) with HD 4000 will need to install IntelHD3000_4000_update.pkg after update before restart, otherwise their system will freeze. IntelHD3000_4000_update.pkg can be found on our forum.
- Disable Intel drivers: You will need to erase new Intel drivers coming with the update.
Every main system update that had some issues with our PC hardwares mostly covered after the release of the update. Therefore, updating like real Macs is not a thing that you can always count on. We can never know what Apple will do for the next update. Until now it had no major problems with X86 PC hardwares.
