Multibeast 4.7.0 Update

Today, tonymacx86 and MacMan released version 4.7.0 of Multibeast 4, their post-installation tool for Hackintoshes running Mac OS X Lion. We have updated our comprehensive guide to Multibeast 4 to reflect this update.

Users of Mac OS X Lion rejoice-- though development of Multibeast 4 has languished since the release of Multibeast 5 for Mountain Lion, the 4.7.0 update improves Multibeast 4 dramatically. First and foremast, all of the improvements introduced by Multibeast 5 have finally been pushed to Multibeast 4. Multibeast 4.7.0 now has a greatly simplified section for audio drivers, the old "System Utilities" section has been removed (Multibeast now repairs file permissions by default), several options have been given simpler names, and many options have been updated. In addition, the "Miscellaneous" section has been split into two separate sections, though the actual distinction between these two sections is arguably murky. For full details on the update, jump past the break.
