Sadly, meklort is MIA and has been for almost 4 months. He is gone for good and we have seen our last NBI.

is that true? it would be a pity if we couldn't close this chapter with out a working resolution to the last step up date to SL.. 0SX.7 precludes mini 9 and 10 artictecturhe...

i'll have to wait until the official release of OSX.6.8 to know for sure.. 8 seems to be primarily concerned with 'thunderbolt' data compliance protocols for SL so shouldn't effect what we do primarily anyway..(mac rumours gossip)

but any way it was one hell of a ride ... and my mini will run SL for ages to come, I'd like to say hi to all the good people on here.. see you all in the next life

I am sad if meklort is indeed gone for good. Hopefully he or she is involved in a great project and will be back in the future. My thanks for all the great work meklort has done. I have had many hours of enjoyable and sometimes frustrating effort with my 10v but the end result is a useful and really cool little Mac machine.

Meklort really has helped many of us - I'm happy with what I have. Don't need Lion :-)

Lion is not possible. If you want it you'll need to spend more $$ on a real Mac. There is another thread re this...

Dell Mini 10v - Bios A05 - 1.6 ghz Intel Atom - 160 GB HD - 1 GB RAM - wifi + bluetooth - OSX Leopard 10.5.8
Mac Pro - 2x2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel - 8GB RAM - 2x320 GB HD - 1x500GB HD - NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT - OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.5

Mac OS X Lion (Developer Preview) Released - InsanelyMac Forum Seems you need a 32 bit kernel, reworked kernelcache, and appropriate chameleon.

Looks like meklort is working on Lion along with nawcom. It's a human being's nature to go further to the new world. The Lion is not hardware-compatible with 10v and NBI will (or have) come to its final destination soon.

Anyway thank meklort and all of you here for my SN 10v. I first installed SN onto my 10v in Dec 2009 and have been using it as one of my primary machine. I remember I brought it to the TED conference and processed administration work for my TEDxRyukyu event online. Some people at TED put curious eyes onto my 10v and it was fun. Recently it has never left my office desktop since I began to use an iPad for my portable use. My 10v will be a 10.6.7 machine or a Linux machine until the end of its lifetime.

According to AppleInsider the major 10.6.8 purpose is to "Enhance the AppStore to get your Mac ready to upgrade to Mac OS X Lion". All the other changes are minor. No need to run 10.6.8 on mini then.
