Wait, are you talking about a mouse or the Trackpad?


trackpad, i think your last post sent the forum into an ips error lol.. You think we might be able to squash this faster with a different means of communication??

also if i try to click on mouse in preferences it says no mouse found!

Just want to report that I successfully installed via the Mammoth method (earlier today, before the update). As far as I recall, the only issue I had was the CIIF/Cham thing, but that was minor.

I have not tried *everything* everything, but I am simply blown away how much works! I'm posting this reply on the system now :guitar: Can't wait until my new wifi card arrives to make it all complete!

One issue I do have is that my Blu-Ray drive seems to access periodically, even though there is no disc in it.

This is probably a total n00b question, but are the "alt" keys supposed to act as "Option" keys? I thought so, but that seems not the case here.

Thanks x1000 Mammoth! Your hard work is appreciated! Thought I would NEVER get OSX running on this damn thing!

well i checked my mouse again been trying desperatly to get it to work correctly and i deselected dragging and now the mouse works perfect…so i dont know whats going on that it wont work correctly with the dragging correctly but im happy now if i need to drag something ill physically click then drag!! Im still convinced something is wrong here however as like i said earlier if i have 2 finger scrolling selected it allows me to scroll with the printed bar on the trackpad but no 2 finger scrolling anywhere, and if i uncheck that then i cannot scroll at all with the trackpad!

For the Bios-patch, I can't find the fd file in my compressed pack. There're just 2 .bin files

This is something we have to work on. There is information in the guides about it. The links to the FakeSMC pages is what we need to start exploring and figure out how to get all of this working on our DVx machines. This will have to be a team effort.

Have you tried using BetterTouch yet? Plenty of mouse/Trackpad related features in it.

Awesome Fewlio!

Thanks for letting us know you got it to work, even with .01 MIIF that had the problem (fixed in .02 now).

More would have worked and better without the .01 bug. You MIGHT want to try the install again with .02. Results may be even better than what you have now. ;)

The optical drive routine access issue has been around for a while; even my desktop Hacs do it. There are posts out there on it, I've just never looked into it.

On the key assignments, there is information about that in the guides.

I'm glad you're asking and willing to test. It seems the i5's have been particularly tricky. I am getting ready to work on getting us all some more patch packs, but what you could try is this:


NOTE FOR EVERYONE USING AUTO-PATCHER

MaLd0n has said that when creating a clean DSDT, it is VERY important to boot your machine WITHOUT a DSDT.aml loaded! Info here:

http://www.insanelym...howtopic=235523

Now, some machines may not be able to boot or run properly without a DSDT, so the best approach may be to use Ubuntu to create your clean DSDT. Then once you have the clean DSDT.aml file, you can add it to your MIID in the /Extra/ folder, then try to boot your machine with it.


@EVERYONE

I would really like it if those of you with i3 and i5 based machines would try this and let us all know if it works. If you can boot your machines with the MIID using these clean DSDTs from Ubuntu, then it's pretty easy to create the Patch Packs (at least for NIXin it is :(. If you can boot into the OS X Installer, then of course see if you can do and install.

@Mammoth,
I am going to try install afresh using the new files!! Will check if the Audio,Brightness and HDMI have started working! Then I have a perfect install!!! Cant wait! please help me out when you get time! Sadly our Audio ID's are different. Hopefully if Taptun can help me out here!! About the Brightness and HDMI! Mammoth! will wait for you!

EDIT: Audio,Brightness and HDMI still not working!!!


I don't know if I said this already or not, but CONGATS on finally being able to install OS X on your machine, wooo whooo! :)

Are you saying you already reinstalled with the v.02 MIIF and those things still aren't working? If so, then yes, I hope Taptun will be able to create an audio string ID and if so, I will add it to the MIIF.

For the Brightness issue, go to that thread (link is in the guides) and work with them on it. Let us know your success and again, well with any advancements you make, I will add it to the MIIF.

Just to update I highly recommend AGAINST installing iStat Pro. I just experienced a kernel panic mentioning "unlocking an unlocked mutex" sounded very strange. Quick google and here is an insanelymac thread:

http://www.insanelym...p...43204&st=40

Seems iStat Pro is the culprit when used in conjunction with hard drives such as ours. Be warned...


iStat Pro was not singled out as the culprit in that thread. There are many parts to using iStat pro such as FakeSMC (and all of it's many new add-on files). I have been running iStatPro on my machine for months and have never seen even 1 KP from it.

I'm sure it is something with one of FakeSMC's hardware sensors (and we all need to know that the new FakeSMC is still under development).

Thank you for your hard work to make this guide. Just that, do you have any ETA for the dv6t MIIF (my configuration is in my signature). THank you!


Thank you for your appreciation! :) It always helps to know you are helping people and they appreciate you, which gives encouragement to continue on with this craziness!

I am turning my attention to Patch-packs, which will lead to working DSDTs, which then allows for creating new MIIFs.

Everyone should start creating their clean DSDTs (especially for i3 and i5 machines) and posting them in the thread along with your system information and the output from MaLd0n's RUN_ME script. That will help a lot!

UPDATE: Actually, I just had a thought - post the above mentioned info here, but if you would email it to me too, I won't have to go searching through the thread to find it. Having it easily accessible in my email will really help me to create Patch-packs and MIIFs faster.

Not sure l necessarily agree, if you check my reply later on you'll notice that simply renaming the taptun10_6_3 kernel to taptun10_6_6 it boots perfectly. No change in file location or nothing. Very strange...


Yes, I think you are correct. I believe this is now corrected for anybody who will be installing with .02 MIIFs.

Hi Peter_sm,

You really shouldn't have to worry about DSDT or new MIIF. The DV8 MIIF should be perfect for your system.

I would highly recommend you do the installation again with the v.02 MIIF. The results should be stellar.

DV6
6:00 PM -8:00 GMT Release Day! 2011-03-21 Coming soon!

when ? :) its from my dv6 3152ss


Hello Kone_Dejota,

Sorry I haven't been able to respond to you before, BUSY! :(

You should use Ubuntu to create a clean DSDT for your machine and then post it here.

Also, create an InsanelyMac signature for your account with all your system information.

Hey mammoth/guys.

I'm worried about doing the install on my machine without proper dsdt.
Is there / could anyone provide me with the proper dsdt file for my machine?
model number is in my signature.

thanks a squillion.

Awesome, thanks!

Have you tried to use this DSDT on your MIID to see if you can boot into the OS X Installer, or tried to install? If not, give it a try.

People need to generate their own clean DSDTs and the guides tell you how to do it. Once you have that, you can use that safely to attempt an install.

Mammuth, I have did a few SW update is it possible to update manually with the new MIIF what is new ? I thinking just install the kext that's are updated? but is the new MIIF so much better I think I did a new install


There were scripts that needed to be run and didn't, so I would do a clean install now, rather than later. I know it's kind of a pain, put you will know for sure then that your install was perfect.

As sent by email to Mammoth (wasn't able to post on the forums before):

Well, tried today to install various combinations: (MIID already created)

1 - used your new MIID, to no avail!

2 - tried to use the 1.3.0 vanilla kernel with cpus=1 and arch=i386 , didn't work!

3 - used dsdt.aml generated by autopatcher, in both cases. With and without, same result!


It seems to always reboot at the same point... is there a way to block it, so I can see where it hangs?

Btw, my BIOS is F1.C , in HP site, there isn't a newer one.


--------

Will update my sig, but for reference, my laptop is an DV6-2170ep, i5 2.4ghz, geforce 320M 1gb.
