Hi,
I am trying to create a hackintosh USB. These are the steps that I followed :
created 2 partitions : 200mb and rest of the pendrive (15GB)
marked 200mb partition as bootable
formated both as hfs+
dd if=boot0 of=/dev/disk1 bs=440 count=1
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk1s1
mounted 200mb partition and copied boot
mounted 15GB partition
mounted BaseSystem.dmg anc copied its contents into 15GB partition using rsync -Pah
removed System/Installation/Packages
copied Packages from mounted InstallESD.dmg to System/Installation (again using rsync -Pah)
copied mach_kernel from InstallESD.dmg to 15gb partition

The chameleon/chimera starts successfully, but would kernel panic (hfs_lock : locking against myself) just after the installer boot process creates RAM Disks. please see the attached image

EDIT : Forgot to mention that I am trying with 10.8.3 and 10.8.0

Why not just use UniBeast to create the USB installer? It is much easier than doing it manually.
 
Trying to understand how programs like UniBeast work
