NetbookInstaller 0.8.4pre

Title: NetbookInstaller 0.8.4pre
Version: 0.8.4 prerelease
Compatible with:
10.5.x No
10.6.x (64-bit) Yes
The latest version on NetbookInstaller has been released. There are a couple of new features but mostly just updated kexts from the previous version.

  • Updated Chameleon. I've also included numerous patches which are detailed in the previous post.
  • (Partial) Support for 64bit cpus. For best results boot in 32bit mode (arch=i386). I'll try to update the 64bit kexts shortly and post an update.
  • Updated the bootloader code so that when chameleon is installed, it no longer messes up windows installations.
  • Added code so that in the event of a system update, NetbookInstaller is automatically run on reboot.
  • NetbookBootMaker no longer patches the install dvd, instead it installs a kext to patch the dvd at runtime (like NetbookCD). This means you'll probably want to restore the install dvd (this won't be required in the future since the dvd isn't modified anymore).
  • Added a recovery option for chameleon. Just type "recover" and a known good set of kext will be loaded, while /Extra/Extensions.mkext will be ignored.
  • How to update to 10.6.3: The only requirement is that you have NetbookInstaller 0.8.4pre (or later) installed. Once you update the system, NBI will be run automatically.

NOTE: If when booting, you see the NBI logo, do *not* restart. This is indicating that NBI is running and updating files (/Extra) due to a system change. There currently is an issue where restarts take a while after NBI is running, just wait it out, eventually it'll reboot again and start up to your desktop.

NOTE2: There is no Asus 1201n support in this build, I'll try to get one out shortly (this weekend) for it.
