Download Haswell & Ivy Bridge kernel for Snow Leopard 10.6 1.0

* * * * * 1 Votes

The first and to my knowledge the only kernel for Ivy Bridge processors and Snow Leopard.

For the moment it is only for test. If it works I think to do a CD to install snow leopard. I know that already Mountain Lion went out but as I there are persons who have programs that alone work in Snow Leopard for this reason I did this kernel.

For the moment you need a hard disk that has the version 10.6.8 pre-installed and only change the kernel and say to me if it works.

All this work is based on work nawcom, qoopz and kaitek.

10.6.8 new patch.zip is the source code

sorry for my english

Update: The wait finally end, I bring out the boot cd to install snow leopard on Ivy Bridge processor. Please try it and let me know, I can not try because I do not have ivy bridge anymore.

so, for what cpu is exactly?
tested on P4 - stoped on boot at:
BDS root: desk0s1, major 14, minor 1
Kernel is LP64

on arch=i386 same
I'am use intel core 2 duo e7500. This Ivy bridge or Sandy bridge?
I'am newbie..

Sorry for my english :)
intel core 2 duo e7500 - dont need mod kernel
blackmail, This kernel is only for Ivy Bridge processor, but might run on Atom processors.

It will not work on Pentium 4 processors.
It works ok GA-Z77-DS3H and i7-3770k with Snow Leopard 10.6.8 preinstalled from another hackintosh. Great Job.
mikonmac, Thanks for the information. I needed to hear good news
stinga11Nice work man..Can you also please include the script on how you made/compiled thisThanks!
here's the thing I have a cedarview intel atom processor the "N2100" -it's off-road- and this kernel seems like the only one working for me, BUT it stuks at "ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::Start - waitforservice(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) Timed Out DSMOS has arrived." , wen I try to install snow leopard on it. I've never got this this far with other kernels; it was just rebooting after reading some hfs+ files over and over again. Can someone please help????!!!!! Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.
Author Thanks!! for this Kernel. this kernel allowed me to install OSX 10.6.3 from a custom Usb Install on a New Xeon Ivy Bridge. I have updated to 10.6.8 and still working good.

Hi stinga11,

Could this kernel be used on genuine Mac that are "Lion only"? Let say newest MacBook Pro with Retina or 2012 MacBook Air/Pro lineup.

I know that I would certainly need kext for the GPU and other component, but the kernel is the most important thing, kext are easier to find, an even if they don't exist you can at least use the computer with limited capablities in the worst case scenario.

Lion is such a piece of crap. Apple is leading OS X straight into a wall. It's like Vista.
