@jeffc2009,

Spoke too soon I dunno why my scores where 6800 the other night but I tried it again with AICPUPM build 166 GM and my score is now 9688


I had noticed that the cpu throttles when it wants to, that's why I went back to 159! I also noticed that in msrdumper/console. Doesn't matter when or what you dump at the cpu, stepping was all over the place.

Does anyone know how to extract out only Atheros 9285 fix and create it's own .aml? Same for sleep/lid?

Hey Guys,

Here is what iv done to active fully working install,

I used Jeffs 2nd package, and then used the zip file from plourde, I installed everything from jeffs packages, but i used the dsdt file from plourdes file.

with his battery indicator fix as well.

All is working well, I'm getting a geek bench 64bit score of 9500 -9600 its a bit lower but i got backlit working so its worth it.


One question:

Is it possible to somehow to increase the volume in the voodoohda next. its got good volume but i think it could be a bit louder. Any ideas?


Thanks
Daryl

@dfris,

Thats interesting. The DSDT file fixed both the battery indicator and Backlight using the FN key? If that is the case then MaLd0n should be able to modify our DSDT for those fixes. This is in no way outside of his knowledge and if it were possible to include this fix it would been done since Jeff had already asked him about this in MaLd0n's autopatcher thread from what I remember.

Can you attach this DSDT I wanted to have a look at the sections that fix those two areas. Thanks

AAPL, has embedded FN keys

use textwrangler to compare .dsl ;)


installed Lnx2Mac's RealtekRTL81xx-0_0_67%2B.pkg instead of the RealtekRTL81xx.kext in your package (probably no difference)
WRONG. i could NOT wake up with RTL2.0.x . i use Lnx2mac driver now.

Jeff,

Can you point me in the direction of the specific file/fix that enables the keyboard backlight? I have a G73JH and would love to try it out.

@westsdad,
I am seeing the same issue as Jeff around 6800 Geekbench score for me. Its the floating point score on the processor that is bringing my score down when I compare it to yours.

Maybe the GeForceGLDriver.bundle hex mod by Netkas is causing this or not, or is it the AICPUPM Speedstepper GM Speedstepper mod causing this? Are you using the Module Azimutz made for us? He said it would be in later builds not sure if it is yet or not?

Have you done the hex mod on the GL binary or just using the module Azimutz prepared with Cuda only?

Thanks


oSxFr33k,

I'm using the 2 byte hex mod on the GeForceGLDriver.bundle, addition of the vendor and device ID in NVDAGF100Hal.kext, and the cuda_devdriver_4.0.19_macos.

Used the Chameleon version and module from Azimutz and the cuda_devdriver_4.0.19_macos with the same results.

(This is for the GTX 560M in the G74SX.)

You are getting those kid of scores because you are using geek bench 64 bit version. Unless you have higher core I7. I have tried to fix the card reader with no luck!


jeffc2009,

Good to know. Have the same core i7 as the G73SW. I spent a lot of time trying to get the card reader to work and never succeeded.

I use DiffMerge love it.

I compared the two DSDT and they both have the exact same AAPL script.

Here are the differences:

HPET

Plourdes DSDT has IRQ 0,8,11,15
MaLd0ns DSDT has 0,8

The USB are named UHC in Plourdes

_OSI Darwin not fixed in Plourdes

Spurious differences of Returns throughout the DSDT returns zeros and returns ones

COncerned about these two differences:

Device (SBUS) added into Plourdes DSDT. Is this necessary?

Under EHCI device ID difference?

Jeffs id is 0x26 and Plourdes is 0x2D

No, The dsdt fixed the backlit, working after a wake, the battery as well, with the help of voodoo battery.kext. Jeff dsdt would not work with voodoo battery.

So there is something to do with the dsdt files.

I agree, there is something different between the two, I actually PM maldon about this, but have not got a response, maybe you can contact him.

Here are both links to the files.

plourdes dsdt

Jeffs Package IM using:

again, i just installed all of jeffs packages, and just deleted his dsdt and used plourdes dsdt

@jeffc2009,

Jeff was curious as to what change was made in IOAudioFamily.kext, something most likely in the Info.plist?

I'll give it a try to as soon as m work buys this Asus Laptop for me. I had to justify getting this particular one and was able to do so I returned the one I had.

Jeff are you going to have OSX on there again sometime?

Jeff,

I tried it out on my G74SX-BBK7 and didn't have any issues. Sleep, shutdown, restart, etc. all worked. Back to my DSDT that MaLd0n made which I also have no issues with (that I'm aware of).

What kind of problems where you having with the previous DSDT? Were they conflicting IRQ's, and what were the symptoms?
