Patched to 10.7.1, sound broke. Recopied the AppleHDA.kext back into /S/L/E, rebuilt the cache with Kext Utility, rebooted and it seems to be working again.. presumably the 10.7.1 patch must have poked something into that package (it's date hadn't changed so it presumably hadn't been totally replaced).

Just noticed that the ethernet setup to auto was causing it to sync at 100mb, changing it to manual and specifying gigabit seemed to work and restore nice and fast speeds. I always have problems with the network throughput of this machine so will see how this stays over time.

I have a GA-EP45C-DS3R with Mac OSX Snow Leo Installed. I did of the steps of the tutorial for creating the USB, after I boot from it and i try to install Lion, the disk utility doesn't recognized my Hard Drive. It only recognizes my USB with Lion on it. What am I doing wrong?

Hi guys, hoping someone here can help me out, I'm having two problems which just won't leave me alone.

1. Sound doesn't work. Following this guide exactly and I just can't get it working. I have exactly the same motherboard used for this guide but the best I can get is having the devices listed (digital out, line in, line in, line out) but no sound coming out. Most of the time with my fiddling I just don't get anything listed.

2. Sometimes when I start my computer (but every time over the last few reboots) when I start up the computer I have no wifi and the mouse and keyboard won't work. The keyboard does nothing, the mouse will move around but I can't click on anything and the dock doesn't zoom when I hover over it. It works eventually and the dock starts hovering and I can click and stuff but the wifi still doesn't work. The wifi should work fine, it normally does, and it's an Apple Airport Extreme card. I've read of people having similar issues where they get an error message that says "Timeout waiting for IOKit to be quiet" but, assuming that comes in through a verbose boot screen, I'm not seeing that although I'm assuming for now that that is my issue but I don't see why no one else in this thread has the same problem.

I've gotten to the point now where I've fiddled that much a reinstall might be in order but I'd love it if someone could help me just get this working. Thanks.

*Edit*

Fiddling round with this I've just realised that my sound is working but it's coming out of the wrong port. Rather than coming out of the line out port it's coming out of the c/sub port. At least I don't think it's supposed to be doing that, normally I just go for the lime green one and it works.

A few posts back I answered this with a fix I found over here. Good luck.

Hello,

Thanks for the very detailed guide. I couldn't get the sound to work on 10.7.1 even after trying the updated AppleHDA.kext. Finally I got it to work by removing "IOAudioFamily.kext" and replacing it from the original Lion installation files. I guess Apple modified this file in the latest update.

Now the question is, is this going to cause any issue for 10.7.2? Is there any way to get the sound to work without removing the latest IOAudioFamily.kext file?


Thanks,

Sound is frequently updated, so I suggest archiving those files someplace safe so that you can slide them back in if needed. I've had various hacks for the past 3 or 4 years and the sound software always seemed to be upgrade somehow on my Asus and Gigabyte motherboards.

It's actually pretty weird that no-one's made an installer automating this yet? Or am I mistaken?

Anyway, if not, then this was a pretty clear hint in that direction :)

I installed 10.7 on my EP45-UD3R last night and everything was fine. Updated to 10.7.1 and now I can't get audio working at all. I've tried all the different fixes in this thread but it just won't work.

Is there anything i'm missing to get this to work?

When I get home from work I might try to use Kakewalk using the below link.

Read a few posts back in this thread, already answered. PS, search is your friend! And don't use kakewalk, figure out what is messing up and fix it yourself. You will learn more about your machine and be able to fix it easier yourself as problems arise.

10.7.2 already out. anyone had use it?


WARNING about 10.7.2
Just tried updating
A simple software update will lead to a "Still waiting for root device" during boot
So don't update yet until a solution is found

Some people probably tried beta version of 10.7.2 so the solution is probably already out there


POSSIBLE SOLUTION
Have to get back to a working environment to try that
But you may just need a newer chameleon Version r14xx and above


Google for "chameleon wizard" should point you to insanely Mac topic
Download the app it allows you do download the latest releases of chameleon including r16xx which should work with 10.7.2
( thankfully I had a second hack ( unused, what a shame haha) , so I'll be able to revive my main hack with it )

Thanks Eliade.

I got a "This Apple ID is valid but is not an iCloud account" problem after install chameleon r1618, so someone may need a patched boot file for that.

Remember change permission to 755 and owner/group for this file, and not use it in raid system.

thanks for the link SkyBoy
had the same error, this boot file is the one

I repost the boot file here


TO UPDATE TO 10.7.2
1/
before the update
, replace your boot file with the following one (root of your hard drive, may possibly be invisible you can still just drag it over, it will ask you for permition)
Attached File  boot_for_10.7.2_and_icloud.zip   128.8KB   126 downloads
2/
do a simple software update (this will kill your sound after restart, so have appleHDA ready, also found in the pack) to get up to 10.7.2
3/
and just replace the applehda (with the one from the pack, same file since 10.7.0)
run kextutiliy and reboot

voila, enjoy iCloud with iOS5
Can be a bit weird with duplicate data at first, but once in place it works like wonders, i use the calendar all the time, and having it synced between my hack/ipad/ipod is so much more efficient

to avoid duplicates, before you activate icloud:
if you use the calendar/contacts, I recommend doing a last sync between your ipod/ipad/iphone with your mac, so that your mac is up to date, then disable calendar/contact sync in itunes (it will ask you if you want to delete all the contact/calendar data from portable device, say yes, just be sure your mac has it all, when you activate icould it it will get the proper calendar/contact from your mac through icloud, without duplicates),

This worked for me, but I'm getting a message that my boot.plist is now deprecated.

Updated using Combo Updater for 10.7.2. Panics first listed NVDANV50 and now it lists the following...can anyone help?

Posted Image

UPDATE (taken from another thread) - Great news for those who is having the issue with the ApplePolicyControl.kext. I've worked around this problem for whole day and i finally have a cure for it. But first thing is that you need another working OSX (10.6 or 10.7) on another disk. If you have one, boot into it, run the 10.7.2 combo upd, change destination to osx Lion disk that you want to update, wait for it's done.
After that go to the S/L/E on osx Lion disk, find AppleGraphicsControl.kext drag it to the desktop. On the desktop, right
click on AGC.kext show package contents, go to Plugin and delete the ApplePolicyControl.kext. Drag Drop it back to S/L/E, repair permission and boot back to yours Lion. And now you can enjoy iCloud.

STILL HAVING QE problems and slow graphics.
