I used jeffc2009's new kexts it solved my random kernel panic and freeze issues but USB 3.0 still will only work if I remove battery before booting and does not work at all in windows

If you noticed that device to device is still in mib/s, not giop/s. You have some acceleration, but not full cuda. You might want to try some other nvidia gfx drivers!!!

@jeffc2009,

I just installed cuda and binary hex changed the values per netkas hack.

I also got a pre module for Chameleon to support the GTX560m from Azimutz which he wanted me to test and said it will be in the next release!!

When launch photo booth I keep getting the spinwheel. Not he rainbow apple spinwheel but the one that looks like the one on startup. Then when I take a snapshot, I get an error unable to save.


I am not sure what you are encountering with GTX 560M. That's one thing you have to figure out yourself. As for photo, it ask for gfx and webcam. Does your webcam work in facetime?

I for the life of me can't get the wifi working, on boot ath attached failed, im lost


Whatever you did to the system is locking up the io80211. Did you touch another kext and changed info.plist to reflect your wifi?

In bios load default configuration and disable legacy devices!!! Let me know if that fix it.

Jeff: I am using all of your files, but the io80211 from you first Lion pack. The other one kept doing the same thing as in snow leopard where it would just grab apipa address....

out of nowhere the backlight on keyboard wont work again.

I ran the dsdt auto patcher in windows this time and am using that... haven't had any kps since... sleep works too...


I ran the runme from mald0n and going to forward that to him to see if he can double check my dsdt.aml and let me know if there is something wrong with it.

But now i have a fairly stable 10.7 that works pretty well :(

I had it working in both. Don't know what you did. A fresh install should clear it up!

Hello everyone
With the many install methods I have followed, tweaked and abused I have come up with one that seems to get a good solid system with no KP's at first boot **NOTE** if you are using Atheros AR9285 wireless I cannot help you I installed AR9280 (ebay USD $11.99) and Card reader I am still playing with. This guide would not be possible without the hard work of, Our friend Jeffc2009, Tseug and many others
First USB prep use this http://www.insanelym...howtopic=259068 and if you want to stick with MBR http://www.kexts.com...or_lion_gm.html it works I have tested it
Next: install as you would I have found that no boot prompts are necessary after the install boot into system and install Chameleon (I used r828 then used Chameleon wizard to update to 1078 but you can do what ever you want) after that place the "Extra" (attached to this post) in the root folder
Then: Install Nvidia update from Jeffc's post at the start of this thred
Ok: now (with kext wizard you know where to get it) install all the kexts from here http://www.kexts.com...do=file&id=1478 in S/L/E at this point I installed Java (open safari go to any page that has "install missing plugin" click to install
Repair permissions
Now for keyboard backlight boot into windows uninstall the ATK drivers and install the one I posted in this thred http://www.insanelym...p...61968&st=40 now when you boot into Lion press Fn+F1 let the computer sleep for a minute or so the keyboard backlight should come on upon wake The Nvidia drivers need to be updated thing pops up on boot and on mine anyway the bluetooth assistant also pops up annoying but speed step no KP I'm Ok with that
Share how it goes

I am complelty lost as to why you have to "Now for keyboard backlight boot into windows uninstall the ATK drivers" when I don't even have the windows boot drive there right now. Just a Lion GM drive. Does uninstalling this somehow update the EFI Bios so that it can work now in OSX?

@jeffc2009,

FaceTime is working perfectly so it must be a Lion GM and Photo Booth Bug. The Color on the Nvidia GFX versus AMD Radeon don't compare. I have had this MAcBook Pro i7 early 2011 with 2.3 GHz and Glossy screen now for close to two weeks. Its going back even though I want to keep it. I cannot justify paying Apple 2999.00when I compare it to the Asus!!

My install did not affect my windows install and Chameleon booted it fine and, Well you could just reinstall your windows drive and then boot it I guess

how does it compare to our install?? Benchmarks difference?? What core I7? Speed of common apps, like safari, itunes. How does webcam compare? Is the screen better or worse??
