Yes I did have it working with the github macos9 branch and the Cormac's
github upstream branch earlier in the week. Note that sometimes you can
get a hang before the grey screen appears...
If you have a specific problem, reply to the thread on the mailing list

MacOS: unable to find a usable NVRAM partititon - using offset 0x1400.
I am building on Mac OS X, so that could be the problem.
That message is itself not an error, just informational -- OS 9 will
reserve some memory to function as the missing NVRAM. It takes a
varying amount of time to continue from there but it should be less
