Article: OS X 10.8.5 Update

Updated
I recommend the Combo update instead of the store incremental update. My procedure is to
  1. Repair Permissions using the Disk Utility on the drive to be updated;*
  2. Backup your current system with Time Machine or Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
  3. If you're using the "USB 3 - Universal" (Zenith432's GenericUSBXHCI.kext), remove it from S/L/E folder**;
  4. Run the Combo Update - don't reboot yet;
  5. Run MultiBeast to reload only the audio driver;
  6. Download the GenericUSBXHCI.kext and install using Kext Utility;
  7. Reboot; and
  8. Repair Permissions again.*

NOTICE: Hawell owners are not having success with this update. Before trying to update, backup your 10.8.4 Haswell Helper system. If the update doesn't work, try a fresh install by
  • restoring your 10.8.4 Haswell Helper installation;
  • go to the MAS and download the Install Mountain Lion app (it's now 10.8.5), using Option-Click on the Purchase menu item;
  • prepare a UniBeast USB thumb drive with the updated UniBeast v2.1; and
  • making sure your backup is current, do a fresh install.
If this doesn't work, restore your 10.8.4 Haswell Helper installation and wait for updating news. Being an early adapter is hell sometimes. One user had success with a fresh install.


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

** Zenith432's GenericUSBXHCI.kext has been reported to cause Kernel Panels on some motherboards after the update.

I update with your guide it work!!

OSX: 10.8.4 to 10.8.5 (Combo Update)
MB: B75M-D3V
VGA: HD4000

Thank you.

X79-UD5 (combo update 10.8.5)

I get this error:

USBMSC Identifier (non-unique): 200604130922100000 0xbda 0x151 0x5195 .....
Still waiting for root device

Anybody with some solution ???

The Marvell Sata ports no longer worked after the update on my X79 UP4, put all drives on the intel ports and got 8.5 to boot but
no Audio and Network,

Tried removing the ncpi=3000 flag but I just get black screens

Hi everyone!
Update went well, but stuck with with "waiting for root device" error.

My system is:
Inspiron 1720, Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB Ram, 2 HDDs - one with ML

Tried everything, also checked this thread, nothing is working.
Would appreciate any help.

PS: All other updates until 10.8.4 went well, always replacing a few kexts in S/L/E, which was working great until now.

For both my hackintoshes with GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 the following worked:
1. Made a copy of the AppleHDA.kext from S/L/E
2. Removed npci=0x3000 from kernel flags in org.chameleon.Boot.plist
3. Installed the 10.8.5 combo update
4. Rebooted - at this point no audio
5. Deleted AppleHDA.kext from S/L/E - the one updated by the 10.8.5 combo
6. Installed AppleHDA.kext from step 1 using Kext Beast
7. Rebooted
8. Enjoy!
Why did you do #2?

BTW, are both your Z68X systems identically configured? If not, please put the two system's mobo/processor/graphics in your signature block. By doing that, you help us help you better. :thumbup:

timmillea,
Use the latest UniBeast (v2.1) which incorporates the latest versions:

Updated GenericUSBXHCI to v1.2.5
Updated AppleIntelE1000e to v2.5.4c
Updated AHCI_3rdParty_SATA to v0.4​
I tried to update my Haswell system again yesterday and today following the above by the book. Having made a new USB install drive for 10.8.5 and removed the GenericUSBXHCI.kext from it, the only way I could boot from the USB drive was using -x. Then I lost use of the mouse, and had limited keyboard functionality (both are wired USB) but enough to proceed with the install which reported as successful.

Rebooting from USB then selecting the drive I had just installed to, there was simply no option that would get me past the Apple boot screen with the whirling dial. If I attempted safe mode, it would say "ignoring mach_kernel .... can't find mach_kernel" and stop. In verbose mode I saw dozens of errors - many SMC - flash by but none to give any meaningful clues. I tried every work-around I could find recommended elsewhere all without avail. I did no better trying to boot directly from the main drive.

Aborted yet again. The Haswell Helper 10.8.4 install was a breeze in comparison. Restore to 10.8.4 now underway, again.

This has definitely broken the USB 3.0 expresscard hack on Apple Macbooks.

I did #2 to enable the audio. Keeping npci=0x3000 results in no audio despite replacing the AppleHDA.kext
Yes, both systems are identical. The only difference is F10 bios for one vs F12 for the other and the freq of the RAM - 1333MHz vs 1600MHz.

Hope the above helps.
