Virtualbox Mountain Lion sluggish graphics (low VRAM) #iATKOS #ML2

Hello, Everyone! Today I installed iAtkos ML2 into a Virtualbox. Everything runs great, except graphics are slow and choppy. System Information shows only 4MB of VRAM, even though I have allocated 120MB in virtualbox.

Any ideas on how I could fix this?

How to Block All Incoming Network Connections in Mac OS X

The OS X Firewall provides an optional ability to block all incoming network connections, offering a significant security boost to Macs that are located in untrusted networks or hostile network environments.

Block incoming network connections in Mac OS X

Because this is the strictest level of preventative network access possible in OS X through the built-in Mac firewall, the ideal usage is for situations where the default assumption would be to not trust any incoming network connection attempts. Accordingly, this is simply too strict to be practical for average users in most environments, but it is at least worthwhile knowing how to enable the feature should it become necessary at some point.

Blocking All Inbound Network Connections in OS X

This feature is available in all versions of Mac OS X:

  • Open System Preferences from the  Apple menu and choose the “Security & Privacy” panel

  • Select the “Firewall” tab and then click the lock icon in the corner to login and allow changes

  • Choose “Turn On Firewall” if it hasn’t been enabled yet, then choose “Firewall Options”

  • Firewall options allow you to control connection blocking

  • Select the topmost “Block all incoming connections” option

Block all incoming connections in Mac OS X with this firewall option

As noted by the preference panel, when enabled this blocks all network connections to the Mac, including all sharing services, all file sharing through networks, screen sharing, remote access, remote login, and remote connectivity through SSH and SFTP, iChat Bonjour, AirDrop file transfers, iTunes music sharing, ICMP requests and responses – literally everything that is inbound which is not required for basic internet connectivity and servicing.

Blocks Inbound Connections, Not Broadcasts

It’s important to note this setting will not prevent the Mac from broadcasting it’s presence on a network if certain networking features are enabled (like File Sharing, AirDrop, Samba for Windows sharing, etc) and it does nothing to prevent outgoing connections, it will only impact inbound connection attempts from all nonessential internet services. For a specific example; if a user left File Sharing turned ON but blocked all incoming connections with the firewall, the Mac would still show up on network scans, but nobody would be able to connect to it. If blocking the Mac from broadcasting it’s presence on a network is desired as well, simply go to the “Sharing” preference panel and turn off the services that are revealing it’s presence.

No DSDT patch for Asus M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard #DSDT

After failing to find any DSDTs for my motherboard (Asus M4A785TD-V EVO) on this site, Google or any other sites with DSDT databases, I looked at how to create your own DSDT.

I have looked at a list of DSDT patches here and could not find one for my motherboard. I also cannot find any online.

How do you go about creating your own DSDT patch? Is there an automatic way of doing it, or do you have to do it by hand?


Wrong CPU given. How can i fix this? #iATKOS


I am running a Hackintosh at 10.6.8, i wanted to upgrade to 10.7 lion, without losing my files. But whenever i open the installer it tells me it needs atlease a core 2 duo, i3, i5 or i7.

I am absolutely sure i have an i3 inside my pc, But in "about this mac" it shows me that i have an 2.93ghz dual-core intel xeon, it also shows wrong ram speed.

The problem is that the installer won't run.

How can i make Mac OS X Realise that i AM running with an i3 and not with an dual-core intel xeon to make the installer work?

Lightblue Screen for a few seconds #iATKOS #ML2


my problem is that every now and then my screen turns into light blue for a few seconds and then returns to normal. Sometimes this issue happens often and in other cases i can use my pc mostly without this issue.

While i was on 10.7 this never happened, but i don't have a clue if this is software or hardware related.

my setup:

Gigabyte G41MT-S2P

Q6600 - stock at the moment


Quadro fx3700

I would really appreciate if someone could help me to fix this up!




Wrong graphic memory size #GPU

Hi, when I boot on Mountain Lion using chameleon with GraphicsEnabler=Yes, I get the name of the graphic card in System profile, but without the VRAM property.

During the chameleon log, when it detect the graphic card, It show 4096MB of memory instead 1GB. =/

Note: The kext, ATI5000, GraphicsAccelerator and AMDSupport are loaded.

How to get the correct graphic memory size?



Maximus Extreme Build #iATKOS #ML2

Hey there...

It's been a while since I last posted on here. Since then I bought a new Rig, and temporarily retired my old one. I say temporarily because at the moment it's pending the right drivers to Hackintosh it. Which brings me to my question.

First off let me list the components inside this machine :


- ASUS ROG Maximus Extreme LGA775 Mobo (2008)

- Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @2.8Ghz CPU

- 8Gb 4x2gb Kingston DDR3 1333Mhz RAM

- XFX Geforce GT620 2GB DDR3 GPU

- Sound Blaster Fatal1ty Professional Sound Card

- Thermaltake Smart SE SPS-630M 630W PSU

Second off, I would like to point out that I am no stranger to Hackintoshing, since at this very moment I already got Mountain Lion 10.8.4 running on a very old and decrepit Core 2 Duo machine. So guide won't be necessary. Also I am not asking for Mavericks, just Mountain Lion. I need it for professional reasons. Beta is unstable.

Now, I ask my question. Will I be able to Hackintosh this machine ? If so, please be so kind as to point me to the right drivers/kexts I need to get it up and running ? Latest versions and with Hardware QE/CI enabled if possible.

Thanks to all who will help in advance. Your input is very much appreciated.

Cheers !

How to Remove Attachments from Mail in Mac OS X

Mail icon Removing attachments from an email or everything in Mail app can be useful for a variety of reasons, from ditching a file that is no longer relevant to an email thread, to lowering the file transfer size when sending/replying to a message, or for more extreme cases for individuals with smaller hard drives, for reducing the overall disk space consumed by the Mail attachments directory.

Whatever the case, use some caution when removing attachments this way, as there is no way to retrieve the mail attachment locally after they have been removed from Mail app. For this reason, if you intend on deleting many attachments from many emails you may want to make a manual backup of the attachment directory beforehand, which we will also cover below by showing you where the attachment files are stored in OS X.

Remove Attachments from a Single Email in OS X Mail

To ditch attachments for a single mail message:

  • From the Mail inbox, either select the email message to remove the attachment from, or open the email directly

  • Go to the Messages window and choose “Remove Attachments”

Remove attachments from email in Mac OS X

Any email with the attachment removed this way will now show the following message in place of the attachment itself:

[The attachment filename.jpeg has been manually removed]

If you have Mail image previews turned off, a tiny 1kb text file called “Mail Attachment” will be bundled with the message instead, which contains the same message.

Bulk Removing Attachments from Multiple Email Messages in Mail App

This is not necessarily recommended unless you take the time to backup all of the attachments first, otherwise you may permanently lose access to the attached files.

  • From the primary Mail app inbox, hit Command+A to select all

  • Pull down the Messages menu and choose “Remove Attachments”

You can repeat the process for drafts, sent folder, and Trash if necessary.

Based on repeated experience, it can be a good idea to rebuild the mailbox after mass deleting attachments to prevent any peculiarities with Mail app.

Mail Attachments Location in Mac OS X for Manual Backups

Mail data and attachments are backed up automatically by Time Machine, but if you’re going to delete them all from the Mail app you may want to manually back them up first. Typically, all Mail attachments are stored in the following directory:


You can manually back up this entire directory if necessary by copying it over to an external drive or elsewhere on the Mac.

Backing up the entire directory will grab everything for your Mail app inboxes and all mail accounts. If you’d prefer to be more specific, you’ll find that opening the V2 directory will reveal the name(s) of email accounts setup to use with Mail app, and buried within those directories in a somewhat confusing maze of files is the attachment data, typically in a subdirectory like this:


Within that Attachments subdirectory will be even more subdirectories, labeled randomly as numbers, containing additional subdirectories with the attachment files themselves. Yes, the directory structure seems unnecessarily complicated.

Here’s an example Finder window with an attachments folder opened in hierarchy view:

Mail attachments location in Mac OS X

Because of the complex directory structure, it’s often easiest to just copy or backup the entire ~/Library/Mail/V2/ directory rather than looking around for individual files. Going that route also makes it easier to restore the attachments to Mail app, because all that is required is dragging/copying the entire V2 directory back into the ~/Library/Mail/ directory.

Whether or not it’s necessary to backup and delete the Mail attachments folder is ultimately up to you, but if you find that it’s taking up a lot of disk space by scanning a drive with an app like OmniDiskSweeper, it may be a worthwhile endeavor for those with very limited disk space.


iOS 7 GM Released for Developer Download #Mac

iOS 7 GM has been released to those registered with the Apple Developer Program. The GM (Golden Master) build is the final release version, which will become available to the general public at a wider release next week.

iOS 7 GM available for download

Devices supported by the final iOS 7 build include the iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and iPod touch 5th gen.

Downloading iOS 7 GM must be done through the iOS Dev Center, where IPSW can be found and installed directly through iTunes. There is currently no OTA (over-the-air) update available to update from iOS 7 beta 6 to the GM build, and due to the nature of GM builds it is unlikely an OTA will become available. Thus, users will have to update directly to the GM manually with IPSW firmware, wait for the wider release, or downgrade back to iOS 6 while it remains possible.

Along with the GM build, Apple is also soliciting developers to submit their apps for iOS 7.

For iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users who are not developers, iOS 7 will be released on September 18 as a free download. Users who are purchasing the new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c will find iOS 7 preinstalled on those models.
