10.5.3 is out, updating is same as to 10.5.2

jsut use this guide for 10.5.3.

ToH kernel source patch released.

We diceded to release patch for kernel source of macosx.

It misses apple’s key for encrypted apps, but u can easily find it over network and add to code(remove #error line after it)

Please respect hard work of guys made it (List in readme) and don’t violate license for patches.

we open the source hoping someone who has the time and is willing to code would code the following:  amd64, speedstep&sleep, etc.

PC_efi brings leopard to atom(R).

One of our anonymous sources managed to run Leopard on atom based system he got.

Atom cpu has ssse3 and 64-bit, so it runs unmodified osx leopard kernel with efi emulator.

Detailed specs is:

northbridge: 945gc
CPU : Atom 1.6 Ghz
sound chip: ALC662
network RTL8102EL

512 MB RAM

osx missdetects cpu cache size, but it’s only cosmetic, not performance hits because of it

Here is some screenshots of tests which shows atom performance with osx.

xbench

geekbench 1.0 32-bit - 84.7 points

geekbench 1.0 64-bit - 90.8 points

“The machine could perform better with more RAM memory”

So you can see what performance will have atom based apple portable macs.

oh, and btw, this thing could run of a solar panel

UPDATE 

here some techincal info from system:

hw.ncpu = 2
hw.cpufrequency = 1600000000
hw.cpu64bit_capable: 1
hw.cpusubtype: 4
hw.cputype: 7
hw.logicalcpu: 2
hw.physicalcpu: 1
machdep.cpu.features: FPU VME DE PSE TSC MSR PAE MCE CX8 APIC SEP MTRR PGE MCA CMOV PAT CLFSH DS ACPI MMX FXSR SSE SSE2 SS HTT TM SSE3 MON DSCPL TM2 SSSE3 CX16 TPR PDCM
machdep.cpu.brand_string: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU 230 @ 1.60GHz

so it looks like Atom uses hyperthreading.
