      If you've installed 10.9.2 and updated with MultiBeast 6.1, then simply choose the new choices in this version and install over the existing setup.

      Repair Permissions using the Disk Utility on the drive to be updated;*
      Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
      Run MultiBeast just selecting the changed audio, FakeSMC, FakeSMC plugins (optional) and appropriated Ethernet driver;
      Reboot; and
      Repair permissions* again.


      * You can use the Terminal instead of Disk Utility if you feel comfortable with a UNIX command:
      Code:
      sudo diskutil repairPermissions /

      If you don't have an X79/C60x motherboard and a Sandy/Ivy-E CPU why would you even attempt it ?
      It wouldn't be of any benefit. Could mess your system up as well.

      Those 10.9.2 audio drivers, are they backward compatible with 10.9.1 or 10.9.0 ?

      If you are on 10.9.0 or 10.9.1, update to 10.9.2. If you can't for some reason, stick with MultiBeast 6.1 drivers.

      Thank you! Lots of good updates.

      I have an issue though. On Z77-DS3H rev 1.0 the new AppleHDA doesn't work. I had to reinstall it from MultiBeast 6.1.

      The audio drivers are broken with 10.9.2 in MB 6.2. I reverted to those from 6.1. (Gigabyte Z77-DS3H, Realtek ALC887)

      When I updated to OS X 10.9.2 my system would crash, every single time, within a minute or two of initiating audio playback (and only when initiating audio playback, as far as I could tell). I suspected that there was an issue with the Realtek ALC898 Audio Driver, and I noticed that this driver had been updated for 10.9.2, but only the DSDT version, which I'm not using on my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H.

      I ended up restoring to 10.9.1 with Time Machine because my Hackintosh was essentially unusable on 10.9.2

      Should this new Multibeast update rectify the stability issues I have been having?

      I found that after updating to 10.9.2, my system would crash within a minute of starting audio playback, every single time.

      I suspected it was an issue with the ALC898 driver that my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H requires, so I'm surprised that an update to that driver isn't part of this package.

      Should this update rectify the stability issues I had on 10.9.2 with my configuration?

      Thank you for the report- we have confirmed the bug with ALC 887 (current) only and will fix it shortly.

      Nice! It is even smart enough to remove competing drivers. Installed AtherosL1cEthernet and it automatically removed ALXEthernet.kext. Unfortunately, L1c doesn't support the AR8161, so back to ALX.

      I know this is may be outside the purpose of Multibeast, but maybe it would help others if when launched it scanned available drives and warned about bootable drives without the chimera patch could cause a kernel panic on boot... even if they are not the boot drive. At least that has been my experience.

      I've encountered the audio breakup and eventual crash. One time after using fan control in FakeSMC, another after using the nVidia web drivers. Both could have just been coincidence, but might be things to think about.
