Is there a way to find old setup guide for 10.8.5 in this thread. I need to install the last ML due to software stability issues in Mavericks (Protools 10). Or do I just follow Mavericks guide ?

thanx
The steps should be the same. You want to use the version of unibeast that is appropriate for 10.8.5 and maybe multibeast too. You won't be able to get OS controlled speedstep but you can get the CPU to step down to 1.2ghz at idle by using the bios settings I posted a while back.

I am curently on 10.8.3 ...can I use this guide to upgrade. In appstore there is 10.9.4, this guide is using 10.9.2 .... do I have to get hold on original 10.9 Maverics? And then combo update to 10.9.2 Or can I just download directly from appstore and follow this guide.

thanx

To go from Mountain Lion to Mavericks, you'll have to create a Mavericks UniBeast USB stick then install Mavericks over you Mountain Lion installation or do a fresh install. (Back up the MtLion first!) You can't just use the Combo Update installer to go from Mountain Lion to Mavericks. The Combo Updater assumes you have a Mavericks version installed already.

If you were on a Mac, you'd have to download the Mavericks Installation application and run it on top of your Mountain Lion, too. With the Hack, you'll need to create the UniBeast installer USB stick, then install Mavericks.

10.9.4 Mavericks is the latest version on the Mac App Store. The procedure for installing 10.9.4 using UniBeast 4 and MultiBeast 6.3.1 is the same, except the interface is slightly different.

Thanx for your answer, however I am still bit confused. Obviously I am using HACK, but I want to do a clean install + extract my DSDT. Do I create unibeast install USB from Maverics that is currently in Appstore (10.9.4)? Or do I have to get the initial Maverics (the very first build 10.9)
thanx

I have been holding off on doing any updates, since I have been in the middle of a big project, but has anyone had issues with 10.9.4 on the RIVE? I noticed that Multibeast also has not been updated yet, so I wanted to wait for that as well. Furthermore, I don't think I ever made a save of my original MB settings.

Thanks.

Hello there, I am contemplating getting something similar to the July2014 build. If you get a chance could you see my post with some questions I have before I take the plunge? Nobody has responded to my post so I thought I would ask you since it sounds like your already flying with your hack. Thanks a mil. Terminetor
