Okay, I know this is old news, but it’s worth a post here. This was taken directly from osx86project.org:
We’ve received unconfirmed reports concerning a few interesting new toys under the hood of OSx86 10.4.3, including a vastly improved Rosetta and brand new ATI drivers – each far more complete than in previous builds.
First, the Rosetta emulation platform in 10.4.3 build 8F1111A has been upgraded to feature full G4 support, including Altivec. This not only adds a new layer of compatibility to Rosetta, but also improved speed for Altivec-equipped applications. This upgrade is reportedly available as a small downloadable update to build 8F1111.
Also, new ATI drivers available in 10.4.3 seem to offer much greater support for PC ATI graphics chipsets. Preliminary reports indicate that they may support most of the 9000 line, and parts of the X series, including mobile chipsets. Apparently NVIDIA systems have not been given this treatment. Is this discrepancy simply due to the pace of driver porting at Apple, or will ATI graphics hold a special place in the Mactel world?
On a side note, the weekend brought a newly leaked copy of OSx86 10.4.3 build 8F1111, the most recent seed from Apple. This seed, with its universal binary of iTunes, is a newer version than the build which was recently cracked.
What this article is trying to say is that Apple is moving closer and closer towards releasing their MacOSX for the Intel based machines. And by the way it looks, Apple has given more support to ATI based graphic cards (yay!! I’m using ATI by the way, on my laptop).
If you want to give this a try, you can try downloading it using this torrent: http://www31.websamba.com/randompossibilities/osx86/MacOSXx8610438F1111Uncracked1090792.Demonoid.com.torrent There has been word saying that it’s going to be damn slow because no one is seeding. I’m downloading it now and if I’m done I’ll try to host the 2.8GB file myself.
It is likely that I will be replacing my existing OSX installation with this version because my previous installation doesn’t allow me to use widescreen. So I’m stuck with 1024×768. Hopefully this version will solve my problem. On the other hand, I’m reluctant to do so because I just might screw it up. Don’t fix something that is not broken. We’ll see.
Go here for MacOSX installation guides. I’ll be happy to help you install it personally too if you don’t mind me screwing up your computer hehe because it doesn’t necessarily work on every type of computer. Continue reading
