S10 Snow Leopard Enabler 1.1.19

The S10 Snow Leopard Enabler lets you easily install your vanilla retail Snow Leopard on your S10, including full graphics acceleration, sound, AirPort, Trackpad preference panel for two-finger scrolling, volume and brightness controls, and sleep.

Please do NOT install 10.6.2 or 10.6.3 before you have installed the latest version of the Enabler

Installation boils down to:
  • Update your firmware to 14CN94WW or later (if your model is supported by it). Firmware 14CN94WW or later required for fan control and brightness to work.
  • Format destination hard drive
  • Restore Snow Leopard DVD to USB installation medium. Please buy it, don't steal Mac OS X!
  • Install the Enabler package to USB installation medium. The installer will not work on Tiger or earlier systems!
  • Install Snow Leopard using the enabled USB installation medium
  • Boot the newly installed system
  • Be free to run Software Update
The Enabler is free, but you can make me happy with a donation. You decide what it's worth to you. :-)

Download with instructions

It is possible to install newer versions of the Enabler "over" older ones without reinstalling the OS.
Updating the OS should normally not require you to re-install the Enabler, though.

This is built on the shoulders of giants, combining the various pieces, adding a bit here and there and giving it some polishing touches. Thanks go to all the people who contributed to make this happen.

Known issues:
If you get an "0xdeadbeef" error, disable quick start in BIOS (Quick Start=No). If you get flaky mouse behavior or random "0000" appear on screen during wake-up from sleep, then you need to press the Shift key.

Changelog:

Great news!
It looks very easy to install and promising.
The one really useful but missing thing is sleep mode. But i think it's a matter of time for such guru like you ;)
Will try this at home.

before I try it.
Does the integrated 3G module work? If not, can I just try the instructions posted elsewhere here to install it?

BTW what are the requirements to firmware version?
Did you really experienced any problems with old versions?

Deep Sleep should work right out of the box (remember to disable secure virtual memory and to reboot). I also have normal sleep working but since that requires changing an apple-provided file (which I feel is not a clean solution and can easily break) I did not include it in the enabler.

It shows up in the Network preference panel, but you have to configure it. Since this is different depending on your provider, the Enabler doesn't do that for you. You'll need to use a modem script and instructions found elsewhere.

I used the latest available one, 14CN94WW. Earlier versions had the following issues: kernel panic when used without "cpus=1", brightness and volume controls did not work, fan control did not work properly.
