    Hey guys, does anyone have any idea about the Yosemite zone distro? Is it any good & safe to use? Can it be used for daily tasks?

    And finally, can someone provide the MD5 & SHA1 Hash of the iso please?

    You really ought to install clean genuine copy & none of the distros.

    Hashes for 10.10.2 can be verified in the thread below, you can get it from wherever (as long as hashes as same)

    Ready Tonymacx86 & Insanelymac forums for how tos

    The only REAL need for "distros"

    There are legit usages for "distros" of OS X (such as running on AMD CPUs or APUs). However, if your would-be "Hack" is Intel CPU driven (and especially if it's LATER than Core 2), you can go clean except for a "loader" (such as Clover). The reason I prefer Clover as a loader is because it acts the most like Apple's EFI implementation without stomping over either OS X itself or other OSes you may be running; in addition, Clover (unlike any other OS loader I have experience with) can be used with not just other OSes, but either BIOS or UEFI-based motherboards (and migrated with few issues from one to the other), which can't be said for a lot of other loaders for other OSes.
