Looks a little too much like a real Mac. What Mini uses a Core2 Duo and identifies as a Macbook 3.1?


White Mini 9 | 2GB Transcend RAM | 16GB RunCore | 16GB Patriot Class 6 SDHC | Internal BT | 1505 802.11n | BIOS A05 | OS X 10.5.8
Thinking of trying Dropbox? Use this referal link and we'll both get an extra 250MB of storage.

Yup, that one is a fake mini (e.g., real; or some other Hackintosh).

For change the identifier to something as "Chocolate2,1" or MacBookAir1,1, etc, i use chameleon 2.0 with smbios.plist customized in /extra, plus a Customized AppleSMBIOS.kext with exactly same data and of course that Geekbench and/or others indentify my Acer 4720 as "authentic" mac.

And for example in Hardware Monitor the system information is correct (Serial Number, UUID take it from everest, etc) because i customized the AppleSMBIOS.kext for mach with my information.

I┬┤m sorry for my poor english, is not my native languaje.
