Good News to Mobile Core i5/i7 and Intel HD Users

As we all do know that recently Apple has updated their MacBook Pro lines once again – this time with Core i5-M , Core i7-M and as well as Intel HD Graphics. What means for laptop users (those who bought Core i5/Core i7 laptops with Intel HD Graphics).
It means that your laptop is capable of running OSX 10.6 , but wait – just not yet. Currently we don’t have (well I) the requirded stuff from these new MacBook Pros yet. So basically in order for me to make an Empire EFI disc for these new laptops , we’ll be needing the new kernel , new kexts and new framework from this new laptop. Bear in mind , Apple is using a special build of OSX 10.6.3 for these new laptops – which means that OSX 10.6.4 upgrade should GIVE Mobile Core i5 /i7 and Intel  GMA HD Users a near vanilla system – provided that your laptop uses the same chipset as these MacBook Pros
More to come , I’ll be getting my hands dirty once again to look out for the source and to come up with a new EmpireEFI disc for Core i5/Core i7 users. This is it people , embrace yourself !

  4. I can’t install this update for some reason, soon as it nears the end of the update, my machine kernel panics with an error about AppleSMCPDRC…this is just after i do anything, whether it be vanilla 10.6 to 10.6.3 or 10.6.1/10.6.2 to 10.6.3…my machine is core i3 330m, 4gb ram, HP G62-134CA

  5. i thought that apple already released the macbook pro new kernel and new kexts in this update 🙂 http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1026
    so what are we waiting for please we don’t want to wait till 10.6.4 upgrade
    my laptop is core i7 720QM which is quad core and i hope to work with the new kext also my GPU is GT 230M the same core as the GT 330M

  6. So far none of the versions I’ve tried will let me load Snow Leopard (Real Apple retail disc) on a Dell Studio XPS 9000 with the X58 chipset and an nVidia GTX 275.
    Has anyone accomplished this? If so, how???

  9. Forgive me commenting here for this, but I’m really dying to get ATI x550 driver to my Snow Leopard, and I noticed you(?) have posted the solution here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=34409 with the file which is not available any longer. I could make even a donation if I get solution for this. Please help me, I really would appreciate! Send me email or something, my mail is roni.laukkarinen at gmail.com. Sincerely yours, Roni “Rolle” Laukkarinen from Finland

  10. traxx :Hi guys,I have the same question as Bryan Keller because my iDELL is using a 4500M HD

    It only benefits i3/i5/i7 Intel gma HD. It is new intel gma which is presented in core i3/i5/i7.
