I’ve used this method before, but it really doesn’t explain why we’re still stuck on this method. The reason for this is that if you have a hackintosh and are running in mode 0x0, then when you reboot the phone, it will force the OS to boot in mode 0x0. This isn’t good for anyone.
I’m not sure if this method was implemented in the latest version of Mac OS X, but the reason it works is that you can simply set an AppleID to one of your own hacked devices to get them to behave like a real phone.
We have a few of these devices that are running in mode 0x0. One of which is my old HP Laserjet 1015. The reason why this method works is if you have the right AppleID, then you can use it to force the OS to boot the device in mode 0x0. It does have some complications to learn as well, however.
There are a few different ways to do the same thing. The more complicated method is to use the AppleID to change the device’s bootup code. Which requires that you have a copy of OSX installed on the device. The simpler method is to use the built-in bootup code. Of course, you can also cheat by using a second AppleID to boot the device in mode 0x0 as well.
I can’t see much choice here, though. The first time I played around with this method, I discovered that it’s possible to create a new OSX window, but it has been a bit difficult to get the OS to boot from there. If you’re going to be playing around with OSX, you may want to change the bootup code in the bootup window as well.
If you’re in a hurry, you might want to use the built-in bootup code to boot the device as well.
By the way, the OSX bootup code is very easy to edit as well. If you have a second AppleID on your machine, you can set the bootcode and bootcode2 to 0x0 in the OSX bootup code. This is useful if you need to get into OSX before Xcode starts booting.
While I’m on the subject of bootcodes, I can’t believe I’m still doing this so early in my startup process. I only started messing around this yesterday so it’s been a while.
This is the only change to the OSX bootcode that I have made so far. I have made a big change in the bootcode so that the bootmode is 0x0, so that the OSX bootup code is not used. What that means is that the OSX startup code doesn’t execute on my PC. I just need to boot up the device with the OSX startup code, then I can reboot into OSX.
It’s not like we’re all dying here. The OSX team has made a large change to the bootcode so that the OSX startup code doesnt execute on my PC. With that change, the OSX bootup code doesnt execute on my PC either. I have to boot up the device with the OSX startup code, then I can reboot into OSX.
