There is no way you can get OSX running at an acceptable speed on an ARM architecture. Emulation is really slow and OSX is quite a demanding OS. Just the bootloader and maybe a Darwin shell, sure, but actual OSX, hell no.

Yeah. I'm trying to get that to work. And I know that it's nearly impossible to install mac osx on non apple pc. And here we're talking about different cpu architecture etc. So only someone really bored would do that :P Well here you have me . At this moment I'm having lots of kernel panics. Maybe in 20-60years I'll make a perfect bootloader that translates code too . LOL. For now it's more like having fun than thinking seriously about this.
