OSx86 10.4.3 build 8F1111 leaked!

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

Patience

I didn’t go to the drag race because there was much to do at the new factory. I guess a little sacrifice will go a long way. Was expecting more exotic cars there but I heard there were only a few Skylines.

Went to eat vegetarian food just now. Ordered “mock” butter prawns. They taste like prawns, feel like prawns and even look like prawns! They have this red stripy pattern on them!! Just like a real cooked prawn! How cool is that? And it also makes me wonder how they make prawn taste like prawn if they have never eaten prawn before. So I conclude that the cook is a non-vegetarian, which makes the food not 100% vegetarian because the person who cooks it is not a vegetarian. Or is it?

I think my site is becoming like a porn hub already because I get so many referrals from different porn sites. I’m not sure if this is a form of advertisement. I mean it’s a good way to make their site known to others. It shouldn’t be hard to write a script to do that. Just instruct the script to do a Google search on “last referers” “powered by php-nuke” and then send a crafted http header over and it should appear on the last referers list. Come to think about it, that’s a great idea!

I found some old photos from the fieldtrip to the Rainforest Music Festival. I will post them up as soon as I have time.

Playing futsal tomorrow! It’s been ages since my last game. There wasn’t any time at INTI.


Go figure out what’s wrong with this x-ray all you doctors-to-be haha Continue reading
