Great job kingnoob! I'm going to try this ASAP with my friend's dv3510nr! Just one thing, what utility did you use to flash it? The ones listed on HP's site seem to have the BIOS contained in them.

once the HP bios file extracts to the C: drive, you can navigate to it and isolate the .fd file. Read my prior post.

HP's site contains a form of zipped file which gets extracted into a new folder in your C: drive. The executable program that installs the actual bios is also extracted into that new folder. When you find that folder, the bios is the one with the .fd extension. Replace that .fd file with kingnoob's .fd file and then run the .exe file to install.
I know you didn't ask for instructions but in responding to your question, it was natural to conclude this way.

OR linux! ...

Hi,

...it is based on the F15 official firmware. Possible future work might include creating a simple patcher that would patch official firmware.

Another easier alternative would be instead of disabling the white list check, you can just edit the white list itself stored as constants in the firmware by replacing one of the vendor/device/subsystem ids with your own card. That was actually the first thing I tried since it didnt require me to disassemble the thing. and I was surprised that it actually worked. Maybe someone can write a nice how to on that, as all you would need to do is edit vendor ids in the uncompressed image and save/rebuild it.

cheers!


Hey Kingnoob,

Could you please write up for us how it is that you did all this so that we could take control of our laptops too and assist in that future work.

Has anyone had any luck with snow leopard?

I am trying right now, but it really likes to hang on boot.

Ive learned that NullCPUPM.kext is not our friend on the DV3xxx, better to add the Legacy APCI_SMC_PlatformPlugin

or else darwin hangs on appleintelCPUpowermanagement ... timed out.

if you have an AMD processor instead of Intel, you will have to find out from the forum. If you have intel, search for HP dv3540es. You will find English and Spanish tutorials. Good luck.

Hi Kingnoob,
thanks for your success in hacking hp bios with insydeflash.
Can you please try to "whitelist" this bios : ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp45001-45500/sp45139.exe ?
Or can you give us instructions how to put our vendor id inside the bios to whitelist it ?
I need to put a broadcom 4311 card inside it.
Thanks!
Mal

Kingnoob,

Finally the insyde bios hack... Looks nice. Thx. Can you post your work and download here also: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=155318

Assuming this works, the only thing left is the wake from sleep problem. Has anyone had any progress with waking their machine from sleep?

Hi,

My first post here. I just wanted to let you guys know that I followed Ed Saxman Bcn's nice guide linked on top for my recently purchased dv3510nr. And have successfully gotten everything working. Everything... except WIFI and sleep/wakeup. The sleep thing didnt bother me too much but after awhile the lack of WIFI really bothered me more than I thought it would. So I eventually decided to get an DELL 1390 clone on ebay for $11. And yes of course, I got the 104 error. It really upset me that HP made such a {censored} move to white list WIFI cards. So I began my determined quest to do myself (and all fellow DV3/HP owners with this problem) a favor: DEFEAT the firmware check!

So to make a long story short after much researching/road blocks, (mainly from the good info/work done at mydigitallife.info http://forums.mydigi...read.php?t=5902) I'm happy to report the I was finally SUCCESSFUL!! :wacko:

The process was pretty invovled/long, it took me about two weekends to figure everything out and finally tried/flashed it. First you have to uncompress the firmware, which is in LZMA/7z format with a custom header, then figure out how each module is IDed and separated, and after finding the GUID of the module that does the white list check, extract it from the image, I then disassembled the module with IDA and eventually found the check/function call for the whitelist vendor ids. I disabled the check by changing the conditional jump JNZ instruction to unconditional jump JMP, (had to download an 800+ page reference manual from intel to find out the OPCODE for the two instructions) After all of that I put everything back together. And amazingly it WORKED! on first try too! Booted into OSX and the card is automatically detected as airport, no drivers, not wonky usb/ec dongles, yay for plug and play!

For all the adventurous dv3510nr owners out there, (i dont know if all dv3s use the same firmware) I have attached my customized firmware as proof of concept. its the very same one i'm using right now, and it is based on the F15 official firmware. Possible future work might include creating a simple patcher that would patch official firmware.

Another easier alternative would be instead of disabling the white list check, you can just edit the white list itself stored as constants in the firmware by replacing one of the vendor/device/subsystem ids with your own card. That was actually the first thing I tried since it didnt require me to disassemble the thing. and I was surprised that it actually worked. Maybe someone can write a nice how to on that, as all you would need to do is edit vendor ids in the uncompressed image and save/rebuild it.

cheers!

Hi Guys, i'm new to this OSX86 thing.
Got it installed in DV3500 and having problems with the 5100 wifi.

Is the only solution is to replace my wifi card?
