Hey again, i'm encountering some strange issue with my trackpad...

When i'm moving my finger in the trackpad to move the mouse pointer somewhere, when i remove my finger it clicks by itself at the place where i leave the pointer, without me clicking, it's kinda annoying, since it clicks 3/5 of the time, tried different settings everytime, but it does nothing :/

I know that next netbookinstaller release will have a better kext for trackpad, but can't we just adjust this one?

Anyone could help? :/

i've replaced the device id and vendor id in IOBluetoothFamily ...Broadcom...plist from toine44's post 1018 BT usb injector kext and it enables bluetooth to be switched off w/o the need of the injector.

it will work for any Broadcom BT 270

NOTE - my experience is BT must be off for sleep to function properly.
EDIT - sleep has been working w BT on since I changed "ControlPowerState=Yes" w plist editor in /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist

this is where the id changes were made

<key>Broadcom2046FamilyUSBBluetoothHCIController_37A</key>
		<dict>
			<key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
			<string>com.apple.driver.BroadcomUSBBluetoothHCIController</string>
			<key>IOClass</key>
			<string>Broadcom2045FamilyUSBBluetoothHCIController</string>
			<key>IOProviderClass</key>
			<string>IOUSBDevice</string>
			<key>IOProviderMergeProperties</key>
			<dict>
				<key>ClassicMustNotSeize</key>
				<true/>
			</dict>
			<key>LMPLoggingEnabled</key>
			<false/>
			<key>idProduct</key>
			<integer>6024</integer>
			<key>idVendor</key>
			<integer>2821</integer>
		</dict>

here is the modified kext - use kext helper to install.


You go in the wrong direction, the goal of the injector is to be immune from system updates.

I've downloaded here http://img1.focus-nu.....0PC 1201N.icc and installed in /Library/ColorSync/Profiles a calibrated profile who gives better colors than the default profile. To active it, go in system preferences - displays - color

I uncheck the option to have the touch on touchpad as a click.

I'm using click button only.

System Preferences - Trackpad - General - Uncheck "Clicking"

thx for providing the converted hex id's toine44; i assumed additional drivers is the wrong direction - but that said i don't really know how your injector works. maybe you can elaborate its benefit over adding ids to original drivers?

i don't think any apple update will change the modified device ids once changed - and if there is a driver update it sure isnt difficult to once again add the ids.

Ok, maybe it was just dark. No difference with the screen.

1. - Restore Retail DVD to USB Flash Drive (I've used Sandisc 8GB Cruzer Mini)
also can be Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail (10A432) from the internet but I prefer Retail 10.6.0 form eBay

1.a - Do not unmount it!

2. - Run NetBookBootMaker.app - link: netbookbootmaker.zip

2.a - choice your USB Flash Drive with SL OSX

2.b - prepare boot drive

2.c - close the NetBookBootMaker when finish

3. - Go to USB Flash into /Extra folder (I've used Disc Order 3 for Mac to do it)

3.a - Edit file: "com.apple.Boot.plist"

3.b - Add this lines:
<key>DSDT</key>
	<string>/Extra/1201N.DSDT.aml</string>

file should be looks like that:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
	<key>DSDT</key>
	<string>/Extra/1201N.DSDT.aml</string>
	<key>Boot Banner</key>
	<string>No</string>
	<key>Boot Graphics</key>
	<string>Yes</string>
	<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
	<string>Yes</string>
	<key>Kernel</key>
	<string>mach_kernel</string>
	<key>Kernel Flags</key>
	<string></string>
	<key>Legacy Logo</key>
	<string>Yes</string>
	<key>SMBIOSdefaults</key>
	<string>No</string>
	<key>Timeout</key>
	<string>5</string>
	<key>UHCIreset</key>
	<string>Yes</string>
	<key>device-properties</key>
	<string>c60000000100000002000000610000000200000002 010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff040010000000 6d006f00640065006c0000000b000000474d41203935302000 00004100410050004c002c00480061007300500061006e0065 006c0000000800000001000000590000000200000002010c00 d041030a0000000001010600001b7fff0400180000006c0061 0079006f00750074002d00690064000000080000000c000000 160000006200750069006c0074002d0069006e000000050000 0001</string>
</dict>
</plist>

3.c Save it - probably you will be prompted for a password

4. Unmount/Eject your USB Flash Drive and remove it

5. Insert the USB Flash Drive again
(I know it sounds idiotic, but otherwise I could not copy files into USB Flash Drive)

6. Explore the USB Flash Drive via Disc Order 3 or simular app

7. Create "Extensions" folder into /Extra

7. Copy files from /Extra/GeneralExtensions to /Extra/Extensions
I copied the following files:
- AHCIPortInjector.kext
- AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext
- AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
- ApplePS2Controller.kext
- fakesmc.kext
- IOATAFamily.kext
- NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
- NVEnabler 64.kext
- OSXRestart.kext
- SMBIOSResolver.kext
- VAIOPEnabler.kext


The installer is launched but the keyboard and touchpad did not work
so I had to use an external keyboard and mouse on USB.

Will probably work if you copy yet:
ApplePS2Controller.kext or AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext or both.

That's all, now you can Eject/Unmount USB Flash Drive and remove it.
Now go to Step 2 -> http://groups.google...1n---usb-10-6-x

Cheers

So there is not a solution at this time for the wireless card.

Would a ful size mini pci card work like the one thats in a Dell inspiron 1720? Or is there just no space in it for that?

What does your System Profiler say?

I forgot to run the kext Utility after DSDT change - now work with 3GB :)

The last of my problems is the function of sleep - when I close my lid, the screen is off when I open the lid the screen switches back but when the lid will closed for longer after the opening lid the screen does not turn on

Similar problem is when I run sleep manually.

Here is my SystemProf.. dump in RTF: http://www.sendspace.com/file/9liv00


PS. sorry for my english

Just curious, has anyone tried the Tonymacx86 method of ##### + ##### on the 1201N? I am playing around with my GA-P35-DS3L system and plan to try it on there. It just came to me that I never tried it on the 1201N. Might be a way to boot via the DVD. If anyone has already tried it, let me know so I don't repeat a failed attempt. Thanks!

EDIT: I did give it a go, but the Retail DVD would not boot. So much for that.
