Intel Atom's Snow Leopard Compatibility Re-Hacked

The 10.6.2 update for Snow Leopard didn't include Atom chipset support, so it wouldn't work on hackintoshes—but didn't keep enterprising hackers from finding a workaround. They promised it last week, and now they've delivered: Atom support is back, although apparently implementing the fix isn't the easiest project. Still, the ball's in Apple's court now. Is this going to turn into a Palm Pre-iTunes thing, or will Apple just let it lie? [Yahoo]

Actually, it was fixed last week, and it's even easier than replacing the kernel. Just have your processor report itself and a Core Solo. They're pretty much the same processor. Meklort already fixed this in the latest version of NetBookMaker/NetBookInstaller. I've been running 10.6.2 on my Dell Mini 10v for almost a week now.
