What do you mean manually moving the kext? And which version? There're thousand version of VoodooHDA... Oh and did you get battery time showing?

VoodooHDA 2.7.2 .pkg: http://code.google.c.../downloads/list (you must edit the info.plist with vendor and device ID)

Maybe my Guide can help you too (German but maybe google-Translate can help): http://thinkpad-foru...f-ThinkPad-W520

If i understand, we can now get the W520 running OSX with everything working fine? Would someone make a package and upload everything needed in a zip? ^^ I'm not a total noob but DSDT thing hem... I can't get with it. So please someone who made fine DSDT for W520, upload it here (all W520 have same motherboard, HD3000 and soundcard, so it'll be ok for all) ^^ Thanks!

DSDT is in my Guide, but i only work with the 2000M Quadro (you can simple change it to 1000M Quadro -> Guide) and HD3000 is disabled in BIOS. A .zip don't make sense since the tools gets updates, fixes and so on, but you can find a list with tools and .kexts in my Guide.

Right, but someone said, just above, that we can use HD 3000 with a patch. That would be better for the battery, so could you try yourself and maybe make a HD3000 version DSDT? Thanks anyway. About the zip: It's just more practical (at first), updates are not needed if everything's fine ^^

Still here ^^ I just thought you should add soundndevice/vendor ID in the guide since all w520 surely got the same!

I got my audio working by following this guide, using the voodooHDA and DSDT stuff: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=273621

I'm also running the current Lion version now (10.7.3) by installing iAtkos 10.7.2 and then just doing a regular update to the next version.
