Me too. Gigabyte P43/P45 mobos need it, too.

@scrax, could you tell me how to enable boot logging and dumping (any specific key in com.apple.Boot.plist)? or it's enabled by default and where's the output file saved? I'm not at my hack at the moment to play with the rev. 384.

After you make the binaries, install the new boot file and restart, cd to sym/i386 and run bdmesg.

I can see you guys from here :) well, if there are that many mobos that need it by default, i better shove my idea some were else :P damn crappy mobos...

Yeah, this log stuff is cool, but big themes make the log incomplete.

If i load a different vbios rom oced from /Extra for my EVGA gtx275 with VBIOS=Yes and UseNvidiaRom=Yes the overclocking is shown in nvclock -i but it doesnt get any speed performance with benchmarks (cinebench, xbench, geekbench64). I suppose nvclock is reading the values from the rom file and you need to flash your gfx to get the faster speed working.

I'm seeing different behavior, the overclocked ROM is loading;
Using PCI-Root-UID value: 1
nVidia GeForce GTX 285 1024MB NVa0 [10de:05e3] :: PciRoot(0x1)/Pci(0x7,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)
Looking for nvidia video bios file /Extra/10de_05e3.rom

Using nVidia Video BIOS File /Extra/10de_05e3.rom (64512 Bytes)

...but nvclock appears to be reading the ROM directly from the GPU, as the VideoBios information is the same as with UseNvidiaRom unset.
Behavior is the same using the FakeSMC plugin FakeSMCnVclockPort or not.

And here the revision 384 (trunk 384) with default theme no kext


thank all people again for this job!



Fabio


Thanks for making this pkg!

I have two questions:

How do I compile Chameleon from sources? I have XCode installed, have done some minor compilings before. It would be nice to be able to compile the latest trunk for testing purposes.

Lately I read somewhere, that people are talking about SSDT.AML. What is the purpose and advantage of having this? I guess, it's been loaded like DSDT.AML on startup, if existent in /Extra/Extensions.

Thanks, for an answer.

1. Download the latest Chameleon trunk revision to the root of your OS X Drive.
2. Start Terminal and enter the root of the downloaded Chameleon folder (cd /Volumes/MacHD/Chameleon, for example).
3. At the command prompt type "make clean" (without the quotes) -- this would clean up the binaries before compilation).
4. At the command prompt type "make" (again, without the quotes) -- this will compile the chameleon without the embedded default theme. "make embedtheme" will compile Chamaleon with the embedded default theme.
5. Wait a while -- the compilation process takes approx. 20 seconds.

The compiled binaries are located into /i386/sym.

Hope this helps :unsure:

Yes! Thank you for the info, just as I expected it. I just wasn't sure, how to download the source correctly, but luckily there were instructions on the source site how to do that (usually I don't use the terminal to download stuff).

it's great that there is a package builder too included! I am just trying it out.

Thanks again,

I think I need your help another time, sorry!

There is a package builder included in /package. I tried several times to make a package with it, but while trying, I already erased the contents of my download folder. I think, I need some help of how to use it correctly. Can you please help me one more time?

Thanks!

Professor,

I'm afraid I couldn't be of help to you compiling the Chameleon package installer since I use to compile Chameleon source for manual installation only :D But I'm sure you'll find some decent tutorials for the package installer searching the forum or googling.

Hello all you good people!

Last night i read the 26 pages of this thread and then promptly installed rev384 on 3 systems.
all are updating from the latest AnVal

Here are the results so far:

System 1:
GA-H55M-USB3, i3-530 running at stock speeds
only fakesmc, and legacyhda in /E/E
- Pstates work i don't see c-states in ioreg
- It appeared Pstates were working before this update as well, i think i read in this thread that for i series cpus that may be the case.
- when going with a nearly empty smbios.plist the CPU shows as unknown, so i had to re-insert the cputype.
- The ram speed and cpu speed are properly detected. however the ram is improperly displayed as ddr2 (should be ddr3)
- Sleep works, however on wakeup i lose usb keyboard/mouse and have to replug the keyboard (mouse is off the keyboard hub)
- system shows as imac11,1 which is good.

System 2:
GA-EP45-DQ6, Core2 Quad Q6600 running at 3ghz
only Fakesmc, ioahciblockstorage, and legacyhda in /E/E
- Pstates (and C-state?) work. This dropped my idle temps by 10 degrees C!!!
- when going with a nearly empty smbios.plist the CPU shows as a quad core xeon which is fine but core2 quad core would be more accurate.
- The ram speed and cpu speed are not properly detected. FSB is reported as 333 (should be 400), cpu is displayed as 2.5ghz (should be 3ghz) and ram shows as 800 (but should be 1067 if i recall)
- i have not tested Sleep yet, i will update once i have
- system shows as macpro3,1 which is good.

System 3:
GA-945GCM-S2C with e2160 running at stock speeds
only fakesmc, ioahciblockstorage, legacyhda in E/E
- Pstates work. No Cstates but maybe this cpu does not have them?
- when going with a nearly empty smbios.plist the CPU shows correctly as core 2 duo
- The ram speed and cpu speed are detected properly!
- Sleep works great
- system shows as imac8,1 which seems good
- this seems to be the most flawless of the 3 as far as chameleon inserting and detecting the proper data

So in conclusion all 3 systems "work" and i am glad to be running this pre-release however the first 2 systems have issues. Please let me know if i can provide more data or test any builds to fix these bugs!
Thanks,
g\
