Hackintosh Updated From 10.7.2 To 10.7.3 No Audio

So Lion 10.7.3 has been released for a while now and I thought I wouldn’t care to update until June (when I move into my new place). I even locked up my hackintosh hard drives into storage thinking I wouldn’t need them. Well, tonight I got the itch, I went for the 10.7.3 update.

It SORT of went well. I got my graphics and App Store working, however, I didn’t get my audio working. I MAY have missed a step, or the audio just stopped working with 10.7.3.

If you’re using the same mother broad as I am; Giga GA-G41M-ES2L, the instructions below helped me get my audio restored on my hackintosh. Good luck!

Method to get sound (not mine )

  1. Remove any alc8xx or voodoo from extraextension and system library extension
  2. Run given alc887HDA.kext using kext utility
  3. Run multi beast check system utilities apple hda rollback Non dsdt HDA enabler alc887888b run reboot
