Have you tried the DTGP Method + DSDT Device (HDEF) patches with AppleHDA v10.6.2 instead of the 10.7.1 or 10.7.0 AppleHDA.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/ and a Info.plist -only, i.e. legacy ALC883 kext in /Extra/Extensions/.....?

Your DSDT had already been patched for HDEF and DTGP etc. but not quite correctly......I have hopefully sorted Device (HDEF) for you to use a Legacy ALC883 kext in /E/E/ and v10.6.2 AppleHDA.kext in /S/L/E/.....

I have done no GFX patching as I cannot test it out because I do not have dual video cards......you will have to follow this up yourself......see here........

No need to worry about your English.......if anything I say is not easy to understand, then just ask me to explain......;)

Zip up your DSDT.aml file and PM (that is, send me a Private Message) a download link........and I will look at it for you......

What DSDT modifications do you need......?

here is my dsdt.dsl


Attached File  dsdt.dsl.zip   18.55KB   4 downloads

the modifications is:


3. Device (HPET) fix to enable the removal of NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from /Extra/Extensions/ and loading of AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

4. Device (LPCB) patch insertion into the DSDT.aml file to enable Native Power Management in OS X

5. Device (TMR) and Device (PIC) fixes to prevent audio "stuttering" when Native Power Management in OS X is enabled, i.e. after SpeedStepping with C-states is enabled

and what you believe necessary....

I have cleaned, fixed and patched your DSDT.aml file except for Device (HDEF) because I need to know what your audio chipset/codec is.....and how you want to obtain sound......I have replied to your PM.......:(

Hi MaLd0n,

Thanks for the kind words.....and the info on DTGP location......

My difficulty with helping with DSDT mods is that [a] I do not have the vast experience and in-depth knowledge that you do with DSDT modding, [b] I have only my 650i ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus PC, which makes it "tricky" to fix other MOBO DSDTs because I cannot always test the modifications.....for example:

HPET fixes to prevent Panic when NullCPUPowerManagement is not present in /Extra......

Modifications to sections not in my DSDT.aml.... e.g. SMBUS etc.

Modifications for audio chipsets/codecs other than my AD1988B etc.....

and [c] it is not always obvious (at least to me) which modifications are so generic that they are DSDT.aml-independent......

Glad the DSDT.aml file is working for you..... :thumbsup_anim:

See if installing Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r1493 fixes the applestore/facetime login using in your org.chameleon.Boot.plist file:

<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>

but with no Ethernet EFI string included.....

With your Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, you should be using a valid SMBIOS.plist for either:

iMac9,1 >>> Intel Core 2 Duo ("Penryn")

or

iMac10,1 >>> Intel Core 2 Duo ("Wolfdale")

not the MacPro3,1 one you are using......

See post #1 Part A. for the download link to Mald0n's Extra Folder and the instructions on how to use it in order to install the correct SMBIOS.plist in your /Extra folder......
