@ovof

You can use my LegacyHDA.kext when you're running SL @64 & 32bit.



Or,now :
- with dsdt basic patch (thx to thorias), i've got sound ALC889A GA EP45C DS3R, stereo out on black port.
- if i add any of legacyhda (from the package "Series of LegacyHDA"), the volume icon becomes gray, no sound, no sys pref.

I need to patch legacyhda too ?

Sorry, i'm bit lost between dsdt and legacyhda ; ; Thx for your help :D

I think you have to use one or the other not both at same time....anyway why using legacyhda?

BTW,

i try to fix another mobo too : 945GCM-S2L, ALC662

i used your device(HDEF) posted on another thread

so i used :
Device (HDEF)

							}
						}, Local0)
					DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))

it gives me :

so that ive no sound

thats the layout id too ?



You have to get proper codec id, layout id by using hdaenabler or looking at the beginning of this post for doc, also use acpi patcher by kolala to generate proper dsdt file and modify it in consequence as per the doc at the begining. Remember the code I put here is ONLY for real ALC889A.

With the DSDT patching, i've got sound with black output, stereo, and crack when output.

I thought adding legacy will correct this, as tmongol said ;à) But that dont work


I don't have any cracking on my output check your jack and connect it in and out several time to check and clean the connector....

Thank you for helping.
.
.
.
Conclusion:
1. any changes to Codec Verbs cause sound assertion error.
2. both MuteGPIO and Codec Verbs has something to do with input issue.
3. "Use ambient noise reduction" option needs fixing. (signal proccessing)
4. I'm doing 3) in wrong way. Can you tell me exactly what part of Info.plist I should fix?



@Nucleus

Please try this Attached File  4outs2ins_regular_test.zip   9.6KB   118 downloads (not for Gigabyte)

I don't know it gonna work for you or not. You can see what I did. It is just a legacy kext, it needs to work with AppleHDA.kext.

tmongkol, thank you very much. It's so kind of you to helping non-Gigabyte mobo user like me. :D

Consulting your example, I edited info.plist of 43HD since your example is 43Regular.
I didn't touch MuteGPIO, SignalProccessing, and Volume boost, though. but except those I did just as you had done.Attached File  LegacyHDA.kext.zip   9.41KB   46 downloads

Now I get full sound output with automatic switchover between Front/Rear green port and one input (Rear pink port) without sound assertion error or something.

I think this is a lot advancement. :D now I need to manage Linein(blue port), Front pink port, and "ambient noise reduction" option.

I guess blue port can be solved thru some changes to Codec Verbs. but for Front pink and noise reduction, I'm so confused.

If you can, I hope to hear from you something about MuteGPIO and SignalProccessing.
About SignalProccessing, when I opened info.plist with textedit and Searched noise reduction part, I found fifth "parameter info" being shown in Base64 Code while Property List Editor shows it as a string similar to "Codec Verbs".

Sound Solution for 889a for SL

needs DSDT patch

decompile your DSDT.aml to DSDT.dsl (you can use iaslme program. just drag your DSDT.aml on icon of iaslme)

Edit your DSDT.dsl file with textedit

a. search and replace all AZAL entires with HDEF

b. replace the whole section Device (HDEF) above the line : "Name (BUFA, ResourceTemplate ()" with the following:

Device (HDEF)
{
Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000)
Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (Package (0x02)
{
0x0D,
0x05
})
}

Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Package (0x0A)
{
"built-in",
Buffer (One)
{
0x00
},

"codec-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x89, 0x08, 0xEC, 0x10
},

"layout-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
},

"device-type",
Buffer (0x11)
{
"ALC889a"
},

"PinConfigurations",
Buffer (One)
{
0x00
}
}, Local0)
DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
Return (Local0)
}

Method (DTGP, 5, NotSerialized)
{
If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10)
{
/* 0000 */ 0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44,
/* 0008 */ 0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B
}))
{
If (LEqual (Arg1, One))
{
If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
{
Store (Buffer (One)
{
0x03
}, Arg4)
Return (One)
}

If (LEqual (Arg2, One))
{
Return (One)
}
}
}

Store (Buffer (One)
{
0x00
}, Arg4)
Return (Zero)
}
}



Save your DSDT.dsl and compile it to DSDT.aml (just drag it on icon of iaslme again)


put your patched DSDT.aml file in /Extra

put the attached 889a.kext (this is a combined plist) in /Extra/Extensions

Tip: remove Voodoohda

remove your Caches:

sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches

rebuild kextcache:

sudo kextcache -v 1 -t -l -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions

reboot and you´re done

You will have all inputs and outputs working (personally not tested digital) headphones no autoswitching
(has 2 sound assertions at boot)

Credit goes to Proengin for the DSDT part and ffosilva for the combined plist

@Nucleus

I really don't know about SignalProccessing but I think it must be related to each Apple's device (model).

About ambient noise reduction: I just copied from one of layout of AppleHDA.kext. It might be just for a specific device. I have no idea how to find it exactly.

About MuteGPIO: When I made Internal Speaker, I need to put MuteGPIO. If not, it will act as Line In. No power.

About Line In: Did you try any CD/MP3 player connect to Line In port? I think it should be working. You can't just use a microphone to test. You need a program called LineIn for getting sound pass thru from Line In to Speakers.

You can get more detail by studying THe KiNG's guide, get link on the first post. I still need to learn more.

sorry i've a question .. if I want a front mic I've always a
"Sound assertion "0 == fMikeyDriver" failed in "/SourceCache/AppleHDA/AppleHDA-162.1.37/AppleHDA/AppleHDADriver.cpp" at line 1063 goto handler."


??

is there a way to bypass that? to use a recent applehda driver and a correct plist?

@ugokind

Q: is there a way to bypass that?
A: I have no idea. However, I think MikeyDriver must be related to MacBook's External Mic and it may be about energy saving. If using External Mic (ExtMic in layout) might be linked to Mikey.kext. It is poosible to make front mic acting like Line In and you need to use a microphone that has power. I am thinking.

Q: to use a recent applehda driver and a correct plist?
A: I could not get Front mic work as External Mic since 1.6.8a3 AppleHDA.kext came out. It showed me "None." Got sound assertion of MikeyDriver. I have no idea why it couldn't work anymore.


I will try to find out if I can get front mic working as external mic again.

Update info. for HDEF Enabler via DSDT

You may use the following code.

[codebox]

Device (HDEF)
{
Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000)
Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (Package (0x02)
{
0x0D,
0x05
})
}

Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Package (0x08)
{
"codec-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x85, 0x08, 0xEC, 0x10
},

"layout-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x75, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00
},

"device-type",
Buffer (0x10)
{
"Realtek ALC889A"
},

"PinConfigurations",
Buffer (0x01)
{
0x00
}
}, Local0)
DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
Return (Local0)
}
}


[/codebox]

You can use only "layout-id" but there are a few of Audio (Built In) in System Profiler, no list of available devices. So, You need one more is "PinConfigurations" in order to show "Available Devices." As you see above "PinConfigurations" has only 0x00, the important thing of PinConfigurations relies on ConfigData in info.plist. "codec-id" and "device-type" will be used for showing information in IORegistryExplorer. So, you may have "layout-id" and "PinConficgurations" in DSDT.

Also, you need to know what layout-id you use, CodecID in AppleHDA.kext (or any legacy kext) must be matched your audio device. For example, Gigabyte ALC889a's Hex is 0x10EC0885 so CodecID is 283904133. Gigabyte ALC888's Hex is 0x10EC0888 so CodecID is 283904136.

tmongkol:

I have tested about forty different layout ids with my 889a, including all those found in Leopard's AppleHDAs from 10.5.6 to 10.5.8 and Snow 10.6. Many layout ids produce sound through the green jack, but just one, layout 66, (Hex 42 - 0x42 0x00 0x00 0x00), gives me five options and sound through the green line out jack, yielding 2 ins, 2 out and digital in and out. This is with a completely vanilla installation. I know it's not a perfect solution, and a half dozen sound assertion errors display on boot, but it is easy and works across OS iterations.

I tried your "0x75 0x03..." layout and it doesn't produce sound on my board, which is an EP45-UD3P (rev. 1.0) with the 889a.

Just offering this information. I appreciate your efforts. Before I started getting sound through DSDT methods I used your kexts to mend my sound. In fact, I use the pin configuration from the working HDA (of yours, reflected in IOreg) in an older 10.5.7 installation in my current DSDT. From what I've read it doesn't make a difference, but there you have it, for what it's worth. I kept record of each layout id I tried along with results. If you need the data I'll be happy to supply it to you.

tmongkol:

I have tested about forty different layout ids with my 889a, including all those found in Leopard's AppleHDAs from 10.5.6 to 10.5.8 and Snow 10.6. Many layout ids produce sound through the green jack, but just one, layout 66, (Hex 42 - 0x42 0x00 0x00 0x00), gives me five options and sound through the green line out jack, yielding 2 ins, 2 out and digital in and out. This is with a completely vanilla installation. I know it's not a perfect solution, and a half dozen sound assertion errors display on boot, but it is easy and works across OS iterations.

I tried your "0x75 0x03..." layout and it doesn't produce sound on my board, which is an EP45-UD3P (rev. 1.0) with the 889a.

Just offering this information. I appreciate your efforts. Before I started getting sound through DSDT methods I used your kexts to mend my sound. In fact, I use the pin configuration from the working HDA (of yours, reflected in IOreg) in an older 10.5.7 installation in my current DSDT. From what I've read it doesn't make a difference, but there you have it, for what it's worth. I kept record of each layout id I tried along with results. If you need the data I'll be happy to supply it to you.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Other members can try their efforts and I will look at layout-id 66 for studying.

Thank you man!! this was my missing part, now I have sound output on the green connector instead of the black one and looks like my outputs are properly enumerated in my syspref. Here is the code I'm using in my dsdt.aml file:

Device (HDEF)
			{
				Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000)
				Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized)
				{
					Return (Package (0x02)
					{
						0x0D, 
						0x05
					})
				}

				Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
				{
					Store (Package (0x08)
						{
							"codec-id", 
							Buffer (0x04)
							{
								0x89, 0x08, 0xEC, 0x10
							}, 

							"layout-id", 
							/**** Is ResourceTemplate, but EndTag not at buffer end ****/ Buffer (0x04)
							{
								0x42, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
							}, 

							"device-type", 
							Buffer (0x10)
							{
								"Realtek ALC889a"
							}, 

							"PinConfigurations", 
							Buffer (0x01)
							{
								0x00
							}
						}, Local0)

Thanks again for your investigation!! :)

Thank you for sharing your experience. Other members can try their efforts and I will look at layout-id 66 for studying.


tmongkol:

Just tried out another "solution", using layout-id "12" (Hex = "0C") and the 889a kext found at the French language Darwin site: darwinx86.org/applications/utilitaires-osx86/152-hda-1058. That combination yields 3 outs, 2 ins, and digital in and out for a total of seven. Sound does issue from the green jack. One assertion error manifests on boot.

Using layout-id "66" with the kext (and changing the plist layout value of the French kext to layout-id "66" still produces four outs and three ins, but with the additional "mikey" errors at boot.

It's an alternative, though I think it only works with 10.5.8. Just using layout-id "66" works for all Leopard/SL iterations.

Just thought you might want to know.

Best to you in Bangkok.

Sorry but tried already 0x0C 0x00 0x00 0x00 (12) but you'll get sound output only on the black connector in my case see my previous post...but of course if you use the alc889ainj kext it will work ok on proper output. But my personal goal is to use maximum dsdt patching instead of kext as for me for sound with this setting, I won't get worried for future upgrade nor using hda enabler or kexts....

thorias:

I prefer and use the pure dsdt layout-id "66" as well. Thought to post the information about "12" to be thorough. I do audio, video and ethernet through the dsdt.

What is your rig?

Are you familiar with Pere's new site, osx86.es? He and others have assembled a knowledge base on dsdt mods.

My rig is in my signature, yeah I discovered their site today has they have released a cool prog to make dsdt patching easier see "DSE"
