• OS X 10.8.2 Update

    Published on 09-19-2012 02:40 PM by
    Today Apple released 10.8.2, the second major update to OS X Mountain Lion. To eliminate any potential issues, we generally recommend to update any supported systems using the standalone combo installer available from Apple.com, and not the built-in Software Update.


    Be sure to back up any important data, and if possible clone your hard drive before applying the update. If you have any issues post-update, boot using UniBeast.


    What we know about 10.8.2 so far...

    • 12.2.0 Darwin kernel
    • Facebook integration
    • Improved battery life for Mac laptops
    • Updated AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA graphics drivers
    • If you use customized or edited graphics kexts, it will be necessary to make the edits again using the new drivers as a base.
    • If you OpenCL Enabler, reapply it before reboot
    • If you've used the official 10.8.1 Nvidia drivers to fix glitchy Fermi cards, reapply the drivers before reboot
    • Updated audio drivers
    • You will have to reinstall the Patched AppleHDA using MultiBeast before rebooting.
    • If you use VoodooHDA, you will not need to make any modifications


    10.8.2 Troubleshooting

    • If you use FakeSMC plugins, and get a kernel panic after reboot. Boot into safe mode by typing -x at the Chimera boot screen. Then navigate to /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext/Contents/Plugins/ and delete OEMsmbios.kext. Then reboot.


    Testing is now underway- this post will be updated. Good luck, and let us know how it goes! Report your results here.

      From the 10.8.2 release notes, other improvements include:

      - Messages and FaceTime receiving messages/calls sent to your iPhone's phone number (if your iPhone is running iOS 6) in addition to the way it already worked with email address.

      - Reminders lists can now be shared.

      - Dictation now supports Mandarin/Cantonese, Spanish, Korean, Italian, and Canadian English/French.

      - SMB (Windows file sharing) improvements.

      - Safari's smart search field now has support for SSL-enabled Google searching.

      - Safari also now has the option to re-open previously open pages on re-launch.

      - New option to discard changes in the original document when choosing "Save As" (so your changes only get saved to the new copy).

      Plus a bunch of other stuff

      LOST audio on Z77-DS3H and Ivy CPU. Everything else appears to be ok. Booted fine, and geek bench at 10,000 after update. (32 bit)

      UPDATE: To get audio back on Z77-DS3H simply run multibeast and ONLY select ALC887/888B **CURRENT! Restart and then go into sound settings. Double click "Internal Speakers - Built In" under the output tab. Bingo AUDIO!

      Thanks for audio, but I don't remember, for the drivers : with or without DSDT ?

      I don't understand this part : "If you use customized or edited graphics kexts, it will be necessary to make the edits again using the new drivers as a base." Someone can tell me how to do that ? Because I've got some problems with my video card since the update.

      The link seems to be to the delta update, not the combo.

      The combo update link is http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1581

      P67X-UD3-B3 Bios version F9. Lost audio and Trim support. Used MultiBeast to reinstall patched AppleHDA and had to reinstall realtek889 again. Also used Trim Enabler for Trim support. No problems with slow booting or drives loading external as of 10.8.1 Everything working great as before. Thanks guys

      UPDATE: Also had to use the DVDFramework playback patch for Dvd player
