hp 6820s celeron 550 processor, 2 gig ram, raedon x1350 graphics chip, native screen resolution 1440X900.

iDeneb 10.5.6 install using a voodoo kernel, upgraded to 10.5.7 using software update.

Are there other specs you need that I didn't post?

You can't use juanerson's dsdt cause he has got a x3100.

RIGHT! Thanks Yushir. And for very important information: my last dsdt is only for C2D T5470 cpu. If you want to use my previous dsdt w/o SSDT tables, use the 24Nov DSDT.aml. Thanks.

For those that use chameleon this is the new: Chameleon 2 RC4 is released: http://chameleon.osx86.hu/.

This is the nonofficial package by Dr. Hurt (Post 32).

Bye.

P.D. With the RC4 we dont need anymore the platformUUID.kext. Editing the "com.apple.Boot.plist" from /Extra.

Well I am pretty sure I installed your latest one and it worked for me, though maybe it isn't being loaded at the start like I thought. How do I go about changing your latest dsdt to work with my laptop? Do I even need to do this?

Now, version 1.3.1 of voodoobattery by Superhai, works much better. It should be installed in S/L/E. Bye.

EDIT: No Luck Again, back to 1.2.1 (half working) Universal version, because I have this problems with version 1.3.1

OK guys, attached my last DSDT (Please NOT use it, its only for reference, because have SSDT tables). I want you take a look to the native shutdown fix (hack code) courtesy of mm67.

Just, you simply use DSDTSE to open my .dsl and search "Method (\_PTS" (w/o quotes), the hack code is added: one part just above the METHOD, and the other part just under the METHOD, like you can see its very easy, thanks to mm67.

For restart, Im using OSXRestart.kext (V1.5) from /Extra/Extensions courtesy of Master Chief. You need to delete Openhaltrestart or Evoreboot before use the .kext above.

Also, added Method PNOT for better power management accord to p-states and c-states, by Master Chief. Thanks M.C.

The only thing that I can say is that all this options works very well in my laptop, and I am a happy man for that reason. Please comments yours experiences here, and thanks for read to me. Bye

Hi juanerson!
I'm glad you are continuing hacking with same enthusiasm.
I think that it is time to put Final Ultimate thread about HP 6720 s (550) and OSX and you are the right and only person can do that. Just make a combination of several threed from blackch, mardurhack, me and finally your great experience because this notebook comp deserve it.
P.S.
Can you upload your final dsdt without SSDT table specific for your comp.

Here is, my friend. Please compare all the code (SSDT) that I erased. Good luck to everyone.

P.S.
I am agree with you about the "Ultimate thread", and you can count with my help.

Update 12-11-2009
New dsdt:


-PATA fix; no more kernel panic with vanilla IOATAFamily.kext when Native SATA is enabled in BIOS
-Some unused devices removed

Update 25-09-2009
Hi everyone. I wanted to share my last DSDT file.
(compiled)
(uncompiled,in case you want to change something)
The most important thing is that fixes the IRQ conflicts between HPET and USB. Now you can load AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext without loosing USB, therefore you can start using native SpeedStep (yes, it works). For this you need to remove any disabler.kext, nullCPUPM.kext, etc so the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext actually loads. Go to: http://www.osx86.es/?p=563 for more details on how to get SpeedStep working. Nevertheless I found CoolBook2 much better than native speedstep; more cpu speeds (all B/2 half bus speeds), on-the-fly undervolting, temperature/speed monitor....all in one. Probably the performance isnt as good as with native speedstep, but the temperatures are a lot lower.
The file includes all old fixes and some new like SATA, PATA devices, ADP1 fix (now you see AppleACPIACadapter attached to it)... This file DOES NOT contain Cstate or Pstates injection. This is only necessary if you want to add more steps to the ones on the SSDT tables.

The 6720s is very similar to the MacBook 3,1. My 6720 has a T7250 CPU, and some of the SSDT tables are almost the same. It might be possible to even load the macbook DSDT (with some modifications).

I really recommend to switch to Snow Leopard; is way much faster. Leopard was a drag on this computer, but with SL everything is faster, theres less CPU load, GUI is snappier. Only downside is sleep support isnt working anymore, and we can run 32 bit kernel mode only (mainly because the GMAx3100 drivers are 32 bit only; we can still run 64 bit applications anyway)

Here is the compete pack of kexts and files Im using (SNOW LEOPARD ONLY!!):
http://www.mediafire.com/?zqyzneaozl2

These kext will give you:
-Sound (VoodooHDA.kext, prefPane and helper files. Mic, headphones, speakers). You need to add the 'helper' file to your startup items in order to restore headphones and mic levels at boot. Also NEED to REMOVE AppleHDA.kext!
EDIT: with this package: you dont need to worry about start items no more. Follow the instructions inside
-Keyboard & trackpad support (VoodooPS2.kext and prefPane, two finger scrolling, etc)
-AHCI SATA support (patched IOATAFamily.kext, otherwise you get a kernel panic if you have AHCI enabled in the BIOS)
-Ethernet (Intel82566MM.kext)
-Battery meter (AppleACPIBatteryManager)
-Fan thermal control (AppleACPIThermal.kext inside provided AppleACPIPlatform.kext)
-Native speedstep (Legacy ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin)
-Mac-like device names on the IO-reg (DSDT.aml file)

Model is set to Macbook3,1 (thats the most similar Mac)

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)....

Having seen your work I'm sure u r the only one who can help. I attach both my original dsdt and my attempt to modify it from my 6710b lappy. I draw your attention to Devices C098 (my GFX), C294 (HPET) and C291 (TIMR) on both my original and modified dsdt. my pnp0b00 (RTC) is ok for the moment. The problem I'm facing is that I cannot fix my C294 (hpet) so that I can load AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. If you find the time pls have a look and give me some guidelines on fixing my dsdt since mine and your r quite similar. Could you comment on the changes required? Thanks in advance for your help

First of all you should check if your laptop specification match the ones of 6720s, on second way you should try Juanerson last DSDT (the post on top of your's) without the SSDT tables. Once you've made your way and you get to boot at least without kernel panics (well maybe a pair in an hour but that's not too much) you should get your way into speedstep and copy your SSDT tables in your DSDT (see posts for this, evosx86 also).

Testing New version 1.3.2 of voodoobattery by Superhai. It should be installed in S/L/E with kextutility 2.4.2 (cVaD). Bye.

EDIT: No luck again with 1.3.2 (including Quirck true). Im back to VoodooBattery_121_prev130_Universal_Superhai.kext (sep 6 2009). I think I (we) have a very, very, very bad ACPI guys, what you think about? Because none V1.3 (0,1 and 2) worked for me.

Attached my last dsdt, with some changes. In the .dsl you can see all you need to know about it.

Information:
No more sata and usb hack code, all the old code has been commented for reference, the lines commented starting with "/*" w/o quotes, and ending with "*/" w/o quotes. These commented method has the same effect than to erase code, as resulted in the DSDT.aml. If you want, you can to erase all the commented code in the .dsl.

Changes:
- Our own sata restructured code works (at least in my case I dont need any hack).
- I ported all usb code for usb devices (uhc1,2,3,4,5 ehc1,2) from macbook 3,1 and works excellent too, at least for me. Please search for all ported and restructured usb native code around the .dsl file (is not too much). Note: Obviously the uhc5 device is not available.
- Unnecessary devices are commented too.
- SSDT Tables with custom p-sates are commented for reference.
- Usual Devices has been reorganized accord to MB3,1 code.

Please comment your experiences here. I hope you like it.

Important Note: You can use the DSDT.aml, but is at your own risk.

UPDATE 17/01/2010: DSDT.aml is now with to much less code, the unnecessary device C2B1 has been commented completely. Enjoy.

UPDATE 23/01/2010: Please sorry for the previous DSDT (with SSDT), the new attached now have less code because the unnecessary device ACEL is commented and all his references. Also, the device ADP1 has been corrected for better compatibility with voodoobattery, was my mistake sorry again. Some unused code removed or commented. And of course, all the SSDT code has been removed for everyone that want to use it.

UPDATE 31/01/2010: To much less code DSDT. And I prefer AppleACPIBatteryManager (32 bits) attached from E/E/, instead Voodoobattery.

Continue in post 156...

Hey Juanerson! Thanks for your constant news updating. I'll be back to this as soon i get some work done - around 20 january, more than less -. I'll upload my DSDT with tables for 6720s and T7250. BTW: How do you configure your own p-state voltage and cpu speed? For T7250 only needs to be changed to 2000/1600/1200/800, instead of 1600/1400/1200/800 ou're using (i think so).

Hi Juanerson!
I have the HP 6720s Celeron version(my sign). I tried in weeks make my x3100 works with QE/CI without success. It works perfect in LEOPARD with attached framebuffer. But in SL I can get native resolution but no QE/CI. You can take a look at my dsdt.aml and see if it possible to enable it or any suggestion I will be grateful.

Hi calmesal, I have NO Graphics acceleration (Quartz Extreme (QE) and Core Image (CI)) too in S.L., but dont worry because Prasys did posted and discussed about this point, and seems to be only a "cosmetic" thing. Which is your score in geekbench? Mine is 2435. Bye.

Thanks for the reply!
I new about this PRASYS check to se if it work or not. but I am almost desperate to enable the acceleration in SL cause it works very good in LEO.

Bad News guys, from 10.6.3 beta: "There is no longer any 64-bit support for Intel Graphics driver , it seems that Apple has removed support for 64-bit Intel graphics driver. For those who are using Intel onboard graphics and 64-bit Snow Leopard , you’ll have to revert to 32-bit kernel or place the old kexts in your EFI partition". Courtesy: Prasys.

Hello,

I am having trouble getting my DSDT file compiled for my Compaq 610 laptop. I am using the latest F.0C bios and have extracted the dsdt.aml & dsdt.dsl file while in Ubuntu.

I have read pages of info about fixing errors when compiling and am still confused.

All I am after is a dsdt.dsl that will compile.

Thanks, Phillip
