I'm going to be running this tonight on my CustoMac Pro 2012 with the GA-Z77X-UD5H, Intel 3570K, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX670. As my build is pretty typical around here and I've had little in the way of problems in the past I expect a relatively easy upgrade. (Knock on wood.)

I'll post back here with any updates or problems in encounter. Good luck to everyone trying the upgrade tonight!

Thanks for all your hard work.

I normally pay a friend to do my upgrades and installs for major releases of OSX. I decided to try installing Mavericks on my own.

Followed all the steps above.....all went well until booting after restart. Epic fail. My system kernel panics during boot process. Not sure why or how to even begin to figure it out.

I'm now restoring my system back to Mtn Lion. Thank God for back ups. I'll report back in 9 hours if restore worked.......

I have a bad ass system......i7 3.4 GHZ....Gigabyte....with Geforce Ti 660.....16 GB ram etc. Also have a Fusion Drive set up. My system is rockn'. Love it....but Mavericks will have to wait!

Cheers....

I'm having issues with the new Unibeast 3.0.0 Update and OSX Mavericks. I partitioned and formatted the 8gb flash drive following all instructions, to 1 MBR partition in OSX Extended Journaled, and then Unibeast hangs on "Running Package Scripts". Mavericks is in my Applications folder as always, but Unibeast seems unable to create the drive. It's been running for over 20 minutes now on my i7 3770K and it still says "About a minute" left.

Awesome!! Can anyone direct me to an update guide plz? I'd love to try Mavericks out!

=======
Managed to read the guide properly and found out I could upgrade :)
When I was executing in safe mode trying to install multibeast, my system kept freezing during the way.
I plugged out two of my 3 monitors and then it worked like a charm.
For any of you that also have multi monitors and multibeast freezes your machine.
I'm on nvidia GTX 650. Not sure why but the graphics do seem a bit laggy......

I can't even get Unibeast to open. Every time I download it, when I go to open it, I'm told “UniBeast - 3.0.0” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash." I've tried both from outside the OS and inside.

Unibeast fails for me while writing to my USB stick, and it seems the cause is that my root filesystem (ie. the one containing the Install OS X Mavericks.app) is case sensitive - is this something that can be solved? (Other than reformatting my disk - I use case sensitive filesystems on all my Macs .)

OK. I'm typing this message right from my new Mavericks and Safari 7.0 OS X and browser. Tony, Stork and Team: I am taking my hat off in front of you! You guys ROCK! To release Unibeast AND Multibeast on the same day (heck, the same hour) the Apple Event has finished, is more than a miracle! I still have a few adjustments to make to the system but those are insignificant. You guys are worth to be on the pedestal! And I am not saying that lightly. All my respect and admiration for your fantastic work! Awesome job!

I just pray that you guys live 1,000 years! (a Romanian saying :) )

Regards, CacaMaca
