NEWS AND UPDATES



THIS THREAD NEEDS A MODERATOR!


Hey everyone, Mammoth here. I don't want this thread to die and I don't want to leave everyone out in the cold either. So I would like to find someone who can moderate and takeover this thread either indefinitely or until I can return to it (which doesn't look like it's going to be soon, if ever). ;)

So the moderator would have to be VERY knowledgable, preferably someone I am familiar with or has been on InsanelyMac for a while now, and could really take this thread to the next level and beyond. I would provide all of my existing source docs I have created and files needed to support this thread and the community.

If this sounds like you and you are up for the challenge, please PM me.

Thanks,


Mammoth




Mammoth's Status


Hello everyone. I am sorry, but there is WAY TOO MUCH going on in my life right now. At this time, I do not have any "spare" time to devote to this project or help people with any of their issues. But this does NOT mean you will not be able to find help here. There are MANY people here, and working together, you should be able to solve most problems. I will be back at some point, or may check in from time to time. I do miss being here and being involved, so I hope I can return soon.


Thanks,


Mammoth




NEW MAMMOTH BOOT CD FOR i5 AND i3 MACHINES NOW AVAILABLE
2011-04-03



For those with i5 and i3 machines that have NOT been able to get the v1.15a to work for you, this new v1.15a_i5i3 SHOULD work. Please test and post your results in the thread ASAP. I am determined to get your machines working for you.

Mammoth




UPDATED GUIDES AND MIIFs NOW AVAILABLE
2011-04-02



Hey everyone! The guides have been updated for going from 10.6.3 straight to 10.6.7 during the installation procedure! Also, ALL of the MIIFs have now been updated for 10.6.7 too!

The bonus: BRAND NEW MIIF CREATED FOR i5i3 MACHINES SO TRY IT OUT!

Mammoth





Thanks to Ekwj and Himura84, we have a way to install for i5 (and maybe i3) machines now!

I HAVE posted the procedure in the General Files Library. Go there now to install for i5 and i3 machines!



The day has finally come...

Welcome to Mammoth Method v2.00 for HP Pavilion DVx series Laptops!

Release day is finally here! :P


While there are more things I wanted to do and add, I didn't want to hold up the release anymore. So here are a few quick first notes:

- This new thread is under construction. I decided to release now, and continue working on the new thread afterwards.

- I am attempting to keep the new thread very organized. You will see the first 9 posts are mine, and I will use these for different things to make it easy for us all to find what we are looking for.

- So expect the layout and content of these sections to change a lot until I finally figure out the best organization.

- I need your help. While you are going through the guides, especially the first time, please take notes and let me know about any mistakes you find in the guides (spelling or otherwise), if steps seem to be missing, or if something is not clear or confusing. BUT NOT IN THE THREAD AND NOT THROUGH PMs!

I have created a Gmail account JUST for all of you:

MammothV200@gmail.com

So NOW you can feel free to contact me this way. I'm very busy, so I may not be able to get back to you right away (or sometimes at all), so it's not a matter of me being rude (intentionally). :D

So PLEASE take a little time to send me corrections for the guides.

- I am already planning to release updated version of these guides because I believe corrections will be needed, 10.6.7 will be released any day now, and I believe all of you will be able to help improve on v2.00 greatly. So I will update the guides as I get info back from each of you.

OK, that's it for now! Just get to downloading and installing and get that feedback to me ASAP so I can make things all better.

IMPORTANT, 2 NOTES:

#1 Currently, there is an error in this guide that will cause boot problems after
restoring Windows 7. I will be updating this guide soon, but until then, here is how to avoid this:

On page 14, step p., we MUST UNCHECK the box "Restore original disk signature"! Restoring the original disk signature is what is blasting away either OS X or making Windows 7 not boot, or Chameleon not working... what ever your symptoms, this is most likely the cause. Uncheck this box, then do your restore.

#2 The solution to not being able to update our Windows 7 partitions to SP1 is easy. All we have to do is set the Windows 7 partition to "Active" in Disk Manager while booted into Windows 7. That's it. Do that, then you can install SP1.

Again, this will be a change in the forthcoming update to the Windows 7 guide. The box for "Set drive active (for booting OS)" in Norton Ghost must BE checked / selected before doing the restore.

Using this method, you will never need to mod your BIOS; ANY and EVERY Wi-Fi card will be accepted by your HP laptop (but NOT all are OS X compatible). You can use short or long Wi-Fi cards in your laptop. (this is what I use in my DV8). ;)
However, for some, the procedure can be too difficult.
To use a short Wi-Fi card, you will need a "WiFi Mini PCI-E Half Size to Full Size Bracket", which you can find on eBay.

These are coming to us by the kindness of MaLd0n and NIXin's great work! :)

Note: There is no need for you to download this if you are just trying to get your DV8 installed. This patch pack is used to generate a great DV8 DSDT; however, the DSDT generated from this patch pack is already included in the .01 release MIIF for the DV8. It is being included here only if you want to see what's in the patch pack, or if you would like some practice using it with the Auto-patcher, (or any other reason you might find). :)

UPDATES SINCE CURRENT GUIDES



Here are the things that have come to light since the current versions of the guides were released.




===============================================================

Difficulty installing for i5 and i3 based machines

It seems that the reason for this is that 10.6.3 is NOT compatible with i5 and i3 CPUs, at least in the DVx machines. A workaround for this has now been posted in the General File Library, and I will be created some new MIIFs for i5 and i3 machines that incorporate this workaround.


===============================================================

- Using a drive on the eSATA port as a XIID is possible, however will cause the "Finish" script not to be able to make Chameleon bootable as the eSATA drive will be seen as Drive 0 instead of the internal hard drive as Drive 0, which is a requirement of the script.

There are two workarounds:

#1 Involves modifying "Finish" as follows:

BEFORE:
./fdisk440 -f boot0hfs -uy /dev/rdisk0
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2

AFTER:
./fdisk440 -f boot0hfs -uy /dev/rdisk1
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk1s2

#2 Issuing the commands manually:

cd /Volumes/Cham/Installation/Chameleon

./fdisk440 -fboot0hfs -uy /dev/rdisk1

dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk1s2

THREAD RULES


(Please read now)




WELCOME!

We're glad you're here and hope the method either has, or will, work great for your DVx!

Following is some information that should be helpful to you as a new member of this thread. If you take a few moments to read it, you will find the information very helpful and will help you and others to have a better experience.


OVERVIEW

#1 MAMMOTH CAN'T ADDRESS InsanelyMac ISSUES
#2 CREATE A SIGNATURE
#3 KNOW WHAT THIS THREAD IS ABOUT


EXPLANATIONS

===========================================================

#1 MAMMOTH CAN'T ADDRESS InsanelyMac ISSUES

I don't want to get PMs that are InsanelyMac related issues such as "I'm a new member and can't post." I can't do anything about that; you need to contact InsanelyMac about those types of issues!

===========================================================

#2 CREATE A SIGNATURE!

ALL DVx OWNERS - CREATE YOUR SIGNATURE! I will NOT help those without a detailed signature like the example given below.

Please take the time (right now) to create your signature, if you haven't already done so.

By doing this, everyone will be able to help you more easily and faster. There will be no need to ask you "what your configuration is", as we can put your model number (ex. VF836AV) in HP's web site and look it up. You won't have to keep typing it in everytime someone asks for it, and time won't be wasted wondering what your config is, or waiting for you to respond with it. When you are reporting issues, everyone can simply look at your signature and be able to help you out faster.

Here is how you edit your signature on InsanelyMac.com:

Either click this link: Help me create my sig!
or...

At the top right of the screen, click on the icon of the little gear ("My Controls" when you mouse over it), then on the left under "Personal profile" click the "Edit Signature" link. You can cut and paste my "sample" below (of course edit to match your system), and enter it just as if you were posting a message. You can get fancy with it if you want by adjusting colors, fonts, etc, but make sure it's easy to read.

Sample:
HP DV8t-1100 (VF836AV) | Core i7-720QM 1.6GHz | nVidia GeForce GT 230M w/ 1024MB | 18.4" 1920 x 1080 display | 4GB PC3 RAM | 500GB 72k HD | OS X 10.6.5 & Win7 Ult x64

===========================================================

#3 KNOW WHAT THIS THREAD IS ABOUT

This thread is ONLY for the following:

- HP machines
- Specifically, HP DVx Pavilion series LAPTOPS
- Intel CPUs (if someone has an AMD kernel or knows how to make AMD based DVx systems work, let us know)
- This thread is for "Mammoth Method" ONLY! To understand what that means, please read the guides.

Please do not come in this thread asking for help with another manufacturer's systems, platforms, or other methods.


Thanks for taking the time to read these.

We look forward to helping you get your system going, and your help in the future.

My videocard is 68C1
I'm in the process of patching the new framebuffer inside ATI5000Controller
Soundcard is IDT 92HD81BIX - I can just patch the AppleHDA myself changing to my ID as i'm sure your pathmap and mine ain't so diff.
Realtek 8168 Gigabit LAN
Realtek UVC Webcam, will work on this later.
Card Reader works OTB.

I'm sure your files will mix in with my model well except for few devices.

Mammoth also do you have a breakdown of your DSDT fixes minus your videocard injection so i can manually patch my DSDT? Would help a lot thank you. e.g. Speedstep, RTC, HPET etc.

thanks

Great, that link worked. We will be getting DSDTs, patch packs, and a bunch of stuff up it just takes time. NIXin is the patch master and he has already created many. I need to work with him to get finalized versions and organize how we will post them, so that is coming.

On my DSDT, just go ahead and download the DV8 MIIF. You can mount it as a disk image and the DSDT is right there. Then you can use DSDTSE (or another program you might like) and have full access to it.

Your machine does look very similar to the DV8, so I think you are on the right track. I'm really looking forward to people creating MIIFs for their own machines. I certainly can't create one for everyone. :D

Let me know how I can help you though. I really want to see more machines working with this version!

been reading the guides for the past hour, so happy for 2.0 Getting ready to pursue the auto-patcher but there is nothing listed for the dv7's, wondering if using the dv6 or 8 would work better for my system, i think im going to compile both and see which one works the best.

**EDIT**

just to let everyone know who may be wondering i used the dv8 auto patch and maldons autopatcher gave me a lot of errors, i then compiled with the dv6 autopatch and it completed successfully, havent been able to verify if it works correctly in osx yet but that will be later today!
