Hi fellows,


Welcome to our website. This is the one and only website that belongs to us.


Please click here for simple and basic knowledge about OSX86 and iATKOS Project.




>> Latest release is iATKOS M which is our Mavericks release. You can get it by this link.


>> Upcoming release is iATKOS Y and it will be released soon. Scroll down for ETA!

You can book your iATKOS Y and get it just before the release time. 



>> Why you need to donate to get iATKOS M / iATKOS Y ?

Here is why you need to support us to get iATKOS M / iATKOS Y releases:


OSX86 is a collaborative project, so there are many developers working on this project to make it work. We of course give credits, we give support, we do not own any bits of software we did not create.


A simple explanation of what we do is trying to make it easier and comfortable for more range of computer models.

It is not just an installation method, it is the configuration software package that makes it possible which you might not achive by a retail installation easily. For some computers, retail installation even has no chance for success by its nature.

The word "retail" is used to refer original installation. We use original/untouched main systems on our releases and on top of this, our software shapes the installer for the target computer's basic hardware.


It is not only for newbies, it is also comfortable for advanced computer users. Firstly, we made it for ourselves and liked it, then it has gone far.


After some clowns around took the primitive stage of our software and added it to their lunch menu without giving credits, we have decided to close it up (after iATKOS ML2).

There are many people interested in the front-end part of this project resulting with shitty websites including any kind of so called "articles" with no valuable/usable knowledge by using our name just to increase the pageviews of their circus sites. So we keep on closing our software, no more public releases.

We do it, we like it, we spend time on it, we work on it, we have our server running 7/24 for your personal releases, we do help individually for years to over a few 100K people and intend to keep on doing. So we move on with your support. That is simply it.


It is only free for our previous donators whom donated for our public releases (before the date 9th of Feb. 2014).




We are happy to announce the ETA!

iATKOS Y will be released in 7 days..

The booked ones will be ready just before the release time.




Test results are fine, so we are getting close to release time friends..


I will be able to announce an ETA soon. Our ETAs are not weeks as you know, it is days, so I'll announce when it is close enough..




 A little information about our upcoming Yosemite release:


- It is a 7.5GB hybrid multi-partition dmg image file. It is made for restoring to USB flash sticks/drives (minimum 8GB).


- You will be able to boot your iATKOS Y Installer USB media with Clover UEFI, Clover Legacy and Chameleon Legacy bootloaders of your choice and install them to your target computer.


- Main system and bootloader versions are being updated. You can see here for details.


- Advanced auto-detection and configuration system like our Mavericks release iATKOS M.


- RAID installation is fully supported and automated.


- Simply, iATKOS Y includes all of the features of iATKOS M, plus > Y has wider range of hardware support naturally, new system newer chipsets. Older hardware support is just like iATKOS M as we tested so far.



Details will be posted on iATKOS Y page. I'm sorry no ETA yet but we are close.


Hey all,


As most of you already know, I do not like shitty ads, spammy links and popup windows including the words "download", "free" etc. or some popup window asking you to "Clean your Mac" (!) or a special shitty offer only for you (!) etc.


These are all trash as you can guess and I don't think anyone likes them. Besides, I also do not like real ads on a page. From 2007 till now, never had any on my website/forum.

When I need something, I search for it and that's more than enough with the database on the internet that our species has already built.


Anyway, this post came out after I remember the quote as I saw it on some page.


Here it is:


Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.

Do not forget to check your Junk folder of your e-mail account as well as your Inbox folder.


Some e-mail service providers might deliver our e-mail messages into your Junk/Spam folder instead of your Inbox folder.


This may happen due to our torrent file attachments or for some other reason.



As usual, we will not release the initial .0 version.

10.10.1 runs good so far. No more wifi/bt and some other annoying issues.


iATKOS Y will be 10.10.1 (for now)


About OS X Yosemite,


I do not recommend main system upgrades even for Apple Mac computers. They are so not like system updates which we directly apply on our iATKOS systems.


If you want to try Yosemite, whatever method you use, install clean.

BTW we are working on it. As you can guess no ETA yet..


This is a 3rd gen. Core i7 Mobile CPU (Ivy Bridge) + Intel HD 4000 Graphics example updated to 10.9.5.


This also applies to Intel HD 5000 Series Graphics (Haswell) which are HD 4200/4400/4600/5000/5100/5200.


After finding out the proper ig-platform-id for your hardware inside iATKOS M installation, it will work.


You may need to select Intel Activator and VBIOS patch during iATKOS M installation.


For Desktop rigs, make sure to try all of the onboard display output ports including the thunderbolt ones.


Mavericks software updates will not be problem for such systems.


For Desktop Intel HD 4000 systems, if the motherboard is a 6 series chipset model (H61, H67, P67 etc.), then software updates will cause problems.


To apply Mavericks software updates on such systems, follow the steps below:

- Rename AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext to AppleIntelFramebufferCapri2.kext
- Rename AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext
to AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB2.kext
- Run Kext Utility and reboot.
- Apply the update (by using AppStore or dmg installer)
- Boot into single user mode (-s), delete AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext and AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext
(which came with the update) and reboot.

Single user mode commands for the operation above:
mount -uw /
rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext
rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext
rm -R /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches
