Happy Songkran everybody. Today I’m releasing OS X Mavericks updates as for Thai’s new year gift. It’s quite a big update especially for Windows 8/8.1 users. Since this is major update with improvements in everywhere, I’ll explain in details below.
From feedback I received from first stable build, I made some small changes in optimizations according to users’ report like re-enabling SuperFetch to make ReadyBoost working, fix startup process always holding itself without doing anything, add livetuner.log so that I can analysis what prevents LiveTuner from completing the optimizations and revised file caching a little for better stability and scalability.
I also added some new features like ‘Computer Audiophile Server’ application optimizations, lowering Windows Defender service priority to for old machines and readme section to provide information about software itself. You can update to version 2.0 directly without uninstalling previous version first and make sure to verify selected options before updating.
Although I never experienced this myself since I didn’t use UEFI or secure boot until just now. I investigated about black screen problems and found some solutions related to setting permissions again to fix it. I already fixed it in upcoming OS X Mavericks Transformation Pack 3.0 so you shouldn’t need to worry about this issue after installing it but for some people who are experiencing black screen problems, this article will provide you step-by-step solution to fix it.
Most reported problems are taken care off such as annoying corner screen activation and iOS font issues with some websites. Windows 8/8.1 fans should be happy with this new sleek UI without cluttered Ribbon panel. Some requested original OS X icons back but I’m still reluctant to do so if there’s anything you want to suggest, do it now!
Audio stuttering bug is finally resolved so I can optimize fidelity driver again for optimal sound quality. I also added Linaro optimizations for ROM along with 4.8 toolchain.
-Added full Linaro optimizations in other files like mips/x86
-Fixed bluetooth audio not working with Fidelity optimizations
-Fixed USB audio instability issue
-Improved proper strict-aliasing fix in Alsa Audio
-Kernel will be compiled with 4.7 toolchain and ROM with 4.8 ones
-Re-optimized CM11 Fidelity optimizations again from scratch after audio stuttering being fixed
-Updated NDK and Linaro toolchains to most recent version
Most audio bugs are gone and is working quite well now. Those who missed BT headset and USB audio can now enjoy the music with extreme quality delivered.
