Leo4all release date...

We all waited for the newest release of leo4all. There are many reasons why leo4all developers didn't managed to release it on time. Appart from bhast2 personal reasons there are other problems which make the release of version 6 impractical.

The new XNU voodoo 9.6 kernel - so that everything stays compatible, we need a new kernel for 10.5.6. XNU dev's are currently busy with other projects like new Chameleon bootloader, which delays the next 9.6 kernel.

Chameleon bootloader - new features like GUI, simplified dual boot methods, supposedly more compatible.

10.5.6 - this update should fix some security issues and the overall stability of OSX. Many users reported the opposite. Without the new kernel, the whole system can be unstable. People will have to replace .kexts to older 10.5.5 versions, to get their hardware to work. Not mounting drives, lost of sleep/hibernation functionality, USB not working are the most common problems. Many users decided to downgrade.


You are probably looking for a working copy of Tiger or Leopard, ready to install on a "white box" pc. I can't give you a link to download it, so please don't even ask for it. This blog will inform you about working versions of OSX86. You have to find a copy yourself. (try some popular torrent sites)
