10.6.5 upgrade on my hackintosh – no problems

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

For those who sometimes follow the hackintosh scene, I thought I’d post an update that the upgrade to 10.6.5 via “Software Updates” went fine for me, without issue.  (My hackintosh build is described in this post).  There were some horror stories yesterday over at insanelymac.  These sort of underscore the increased risk associated with all these non-vanilla build methods that have been around for a while.  If you’re using a bunch of nonstandard kexts or (especially video) hardware that requires special tricks to get it to work, reliability seems really, really spotty.  I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the reliability of my build so far – let’s hope it keeps up.
