Does not work for me ... after some minutes the DVD spins down and then nothing happens. Before the DVD spins down, there are only SAM Multimedia Errors.
Need to get an USB<->SATA Adapter ....


It's somewhat offtopic but I made an iso of the boot-132 disk i used. You can dl it here: http://rapidshare.co...track1.zip.html
If it does boot with this, you'll need an USB-mouse during install. ps2 kext and nub don't seem to get loaded properly from the CD. The trackpad does work after I setup to boot from EFI partition.

To get back on-topic.
Maybe my brightness control works correctly because I use the X3100 drivers from the last Macbook update?

What is your X3100 device id? 2a12?

Will try your boot-132 disk now ...

I don't have the problem that only half the screen dims. For me it works now just like under Windows and Linux.
Maybe it depends on the "distro" you installed. I installed retail with boot-132 method, and I boot from EFI partition to the installled OS.


I think it depends on the display panel model.... the key might be tweaking the values in the applebacklight.kext; I've tryed but no results so far

I will try the macbook update's drivers to see if change anything

edit:
Nevermind, those kexts dont make any difference

Hi,
I'm just checkin' If I can get brightness control as you and I am going to reinstall with the boot-132 method.

One question: why the original boot-132 doens't work and yours work? the only difference I see is that you inserted dsmos.kext....is it right?

Yes, if you don't have dsmos.kext the DVD can't load.

Ok I have made a clean install with boot-132, but I get the same issue only half display dimmed.


Can you check which LCD panel do you have? (use pcwizard in windows)
Also How do you get DSDT.aml? cause on my 6720s I can't get it... I've tried with -f switch but I get something that don't work and don't boot...

Also... with the dsdt of this thread I've got sleep workin'!!!!!!!!!


I ask you another thing I've a D945GCLF motherboard with ATOM 230 and I use the boot-132 method to make a clean install but is not like the 6720s If I launch an installer(also cahmeleon DFE for hd) it answer to me "You cannot open the application installer because it is not supported by the architecture".... I've tried with different SMBIOS but I really don't know... with Kalyway 10.5 this has never happened.

I'm unable to check what display I have in Windows, I only have OSX installed on my laptop. If you know a way to check this on OSX, I'll gladly help.
I wasn't able to patch my own DSDT as well as BlackCH. I got a good DSDT from another forum user who has an older BIOS on his 6720s. That's the DSDT were using now, after BlackCH made some fixes to it.
For me the DSDT didn't fix sleep, it already worked for me on vanilla install. It did fix my lid, my laptop goes to sleep when i close it!
I wouldn't know how to fix your installer problem on the Atom board, guess you could open a new topic about it.

To get the audio kext loaded from EFI partition, you need to give it a higher version in the plist, or give it a higher ioprobescore. If you don't the OS tries to load the original kext as they are a higher version.

Here's my dsdt help to fix this so I can see if I can change the brightness like in Windows or Linux.

It is from a 6720s with Celeron M530 and BIOS version F0.B

I found out also iasl for Windows if someone want to try... http://www.acpica.or...inary_tools.php

and you can get dsdt and aml directly in windows.

Update 29-12-2008

I've manage to add quite a lot of fixes on the DSDT.aml file: UHCI, EHCI (proper sleep), backlight control, Ethernet fix (for timemachine, filesharing, etc), GFX (proper x3100 DSDT entry), PWRB (powerbutton device entry)....


BlackCH,

I'm currently trying to get both cores to work on my HP530 notebook. I've been trying for a while now.
I think I've found that on this particular notebook (and probably many more) the SSDT tables are messed up. I've modified the GetDSDT.sh script so that it can extract the SSDT tables. I've also modified the chameleon DSDT bootloader so that it can replace and load SSDT tables from the root folder. The only problem is that I've not got working SSDT tables to compare with.

I would be gratefull if you could share your working SSDT tables with me so I can hopefully fix the dual core problem with the HP530 notebook.

I've attached a zip file with a folder containing the iasl tool and the script to extract the SSDT tables.

To run just uncompress the attachment, with Terminal cd into the folder and run:

./getSSDT5.sh

There should be multiple tables, I've attached the 5 tables from my notebook. This can also help people to understand P-States, T-States and C-States.

Thanks, if you can help!!

I have a HP530 Laptop (only one core working on my T2400 processor (CPUS=1)), with OS X installed. I've not got Boot-132. I'm using chameleon as the bootloader with DSDT and SSDT override.

Hi,
First of all, thank you Blackch for the dsdt file so I got my brightness working. (I have a HP550, X3100 2A12)

With all the last kext (1.5.36), my display got dimmed half part darker as the others.

So I installed the FB.kext version 1.5.18 as I read it didn't give the invalid display error, but I was stucked at a blue screen, and with the Natit.kex gma 950 (laptop) efi string from osx86tools t my laptop succed to boot, but the display wakes totally unlight.
But my brightness control is ok, without the half part darker and works totally, well I have to use the function flip prefpane.

The only thing is that my card is now seen as a gma950 but it's not important.

Am I doing something wrong? I have a 6820s and I open this zip and place both files in the root. When I restart in -v I get part way then the laptop freezes. I don't remember what it siad and I have now removed it.

Download:




I have an HP 6720s and Im trying to fix the DSDT to be able to run the next 10.5.6 apple update (it seems without this fix will be difficult to do it). This fix enable the possibility of loading AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleRTC.kext (10.5.6 version) without kernel panics and without any disabler kexts. Beside that with a bit of experimenting you can edit thermal zones (when the fan goes on and off), backlight control, etc....

You can read about here:

http://forum.insanel...howtopic=133683

The problem is that Im running the lastest BIOS and it has something very wrong with its DSDT tables. You can dump the data but you can not compile it back; It seems is incomplete (FxxK HP!). I also got a F.01 BIOS dsdt dump (google) but although it seems complete it doesnt compile neither (different errors).

If any of you having OSX running on one of this machines could help me will be great. It will take just 5 minutes

Go to the first post on the link above and download the DSDT patcher (last version). unzip it on the desktop and navigate to the folder
/desktop/DSDT Patcher1.0.1d/Tools/

open Terminal.app type
cd /Users/yourname/desktop/ [enter]

and then drag the
getDSDT.sh file into the terminal and press enter again.
This should generate a dsdt.dat file on your desktop. Zip it and post it here (please also include the BIOS version). Hopefully in older BIOSes this dsdt error wont be present (Im pretty sure about F.05 and F.07 versions; someone at ubuntu's forum mod his- Tryed to contact him, no replay yet). Then we will be able to generate a custom dsdt file to use with the coming upgraded chamelon version (dsdt override version) compatible with all tree models disregarding which bios is running....
You can also try to patch it yourseves with fassl patcher; please attach the results

Thanks everyone

You're using 10.5.7. This DSDT DOESN'T work in 10.5.7, only in 10.5.6
