File for post-installation of Mountain Lion 10.8.2 (HP Pavilion dv6/7 6xxx)

Use only with the DV6-7 6xxx series, but only the series with bios F1a (54024.exe) or F1b (58068.exe)!
Including tools to repair permissions and rebuild the kernelcache (Kext Utility.app), and "Show All Files.app" to make visible the match_kernel (which is usually hidden), and so it can be deleted and replaced with the *patched.
For other things you read at least the 6/7 pages back!

*Enoch rev2111 is able to patch the kernel "on the fly", to use the original mach_kernel:
if you want to use and try (use the "search button", found and install).


Micky



EDIT

remove, if have, kexts like VoodooHDA.kext, HDAdisabler.kext, HDAIDT.kext, NullCpuPowerManagement.kext etc.

Hello,

I'll explain a bit:

the bios of HP, made by Insyde, is a set of modules that provide the interface to the operating system between software and firmware of hardware components.
Along with these modules, there are also tables of ACPI:

dsdt, SSDT, ssdt1, sddt2 (and more), APIC, RSDT, UEFI etc.

Different between F1a or F1b is only cosmetic (some bad recognition memory banks that HP has found on particular brands of RAM stick, but obviously not all), at least dsdt is the same! So for OSX, but also for Windows, you do not realize anything!

So do not worry to choose between F1a or F1b, because they are practically the same!

The point, is that this type of bios, manufactured by Insyde is RSA signed, and this means that he possesses an encryption:

if you try to mod the bios, and flashig it, you will get an error because the generated file will not be the same as the original one signed, and installer stop the job!

RSA is impossible to decrypt, because its keys is so long that it has billions of combinations.

Using an old installer (previous to RSA time), you can flash the bios (the one posted by @simconti and me).
Unfortunately, of course, the signature was invalid on a modded bios, and if you try to change several settings (not all) when you save the setting on the CMOS, the bios chip comparing the two signatures, and will produce error: the semi-brick

CMOS is a volatile memory, this means that when you remove the power (disconnecting the "battery button") the bios back to its original state!...... ALWAYS!!!!!!

So my advice, if you put the modded bios amended as follows:

always leaves the battery is disconnected, and if it happens semi-brick , just remove the battery of the laptop and everything is fine! (wait about 10/12 seconds to discharge capacitors).


Semi-brick happens if there is no patch in dsdt, or sometimes if hard reset made by powering down your Lappy holding the power button (but only if system is already freeze)!
On our dsdt is present the patch to prevent the reset of the CMOS!


Warning:

Flashing bios on Laptop is always dangerous, even with the original bios!! (think happens if you lost power while flashing the bios: disaster!!)
Unlike motherboards Desktop, Notebooks do not have a removable bios (easy to replace), ........the repair will cost 80 Euros on a not official laboratory in Italy.

Do this only at your own risk!!!!


Feedback from me: the bios mod is ok:

semi-brick is not a total brick, is it always recoverable in few seconds!


Consider, this is not a choice for life, you can put original bios when you want!

disadvantages:

-You can not change several settings.
-Possible, recoverable semi-brick

advantages:

-You can put the wifi card you like, even with bluetooth (the model must be compatible with OSX, of course).

-You can turn off the discrete video card, less heat, and battery consumption increases so much (about 3.5 hours Core i7, i5 think more)

Hey Micky,

Thank you so much for this details explanation :thumbsup_anim:


I just want to make sure from you, i am doing the right steps, because i am really freaked out about this:

1- Leaves the battery disconnected (you mean remove the RTC/CMOS battery)
2- Boot regularly to Windows & apply the modded BIOS
3- Boot to bios and change some settings
3- If it happens semi-brick remove the regular 6-cell battery & AC if connected and wait about 10/12 seconds to discharge capacitors
4- if nothing happens and all went successfully, turns off the laptop and put the RTC/CMOS battery back and boot regularly

Also i would like to ask you, What are the settings that you can't change when you have the modded bios installed?

I did not say this, just leave detached the button battery of bios (always):

- If it happens the CMOS reset, appears the semibrick

- So, unless you remove the battery of the notebook, the settings are always maintained!

- Semibrick if it happens, you do not need to open the cover under the Lappy, because battery is already disconnected!

Unfortunately I no longer have the notebook in question (I have the new 7000 series), but when you can change to "Dynamic" or "Fixed" your video cards, Fn button behavior etc, basically these are the most important settings in the original bios, with the difference that now you can turn off the HD6770m (or whatever you have) and really save a lot of battery life!

So, I do not think it is necessary have all setting available in modded bios, or a few are able to work, because they do not have on the original bios!

Micky


Mikcy are you saying i have to permanently disconnect the RTC/CMOS battery? if a semi brick happens just remove the laptop battery (wait about 10/12 sec), and in order to maintain the saved changes in the BIOS i have to always keep my battery connected.

what if my laptop battery drained completely does that mean the BIOS will reset to its original state?

Yes, Default Setting!


okay, so if this happens you can hang up button battery!

Does not mean you have to throw it away :jester:


Micky


Edit

I thought, if that happens, the semibrick, it is very convenient to strip the Notebook battery for a few seconds, rather than disassemble the lappy :)

Hey guys, i'm back online and trying to get my machine to run osx again. I started this evening and got pretty much all the stuff to work as it is expected (thanx to the persons who provided many useful information in this topic). Anyway there are still few problems that i am facing:
1) Sleep doesn't work- and from the posts i saw that the work on the fix is going atm, how is it going so far and what exactly looks to be the point that makes this happen?
2) Brightness. As it was stated by one of the persons perviously in this topic - when the brightness dims automatically - than the brightness is restored to it's full 100% brightness. I tried to instal the EDID - anyway it didn't helped.
3) Multitouch. Yes, it works - i can do the multitouch zoom around the webpage, anyway i can't setup the three-point multitouch for full os x multitouch functions, any1 knows how to make it?
4) I tried to google it, anyway i couldn't find a real solution to this. I can't use apple services which require apple id, f.e. FaceTime, messages, App Store,dictation and so on... Any1 knows how to fix this? p.s. i got the most simple solution already applied, since i used the .rar for the os installation, which already contained that ethernet string in the boot file.
Edited: accepted new rules after trying to buy a product off the App Store, which has lead to successful work of it, anyway FaceTime/messages/dictation are still not working.
5) Anyway to make the webcam work? I know that FaceTime doesn't work due to the apple id, anyway in Skype settings - i can't choose the camera, as well as it is not detected in the system description.
6) Haven't tested yet, do usb3 ports work?

Moreover:
7) A link to a bios(i got hp dv7-6053er) which would allow to disable 6770m would be nice.
8) Maybe someone knows a nice topic regarding the choice of the wifi board(both internal and external) particularly for our laptops(dv6/7 = internal wifi) and mac os in general = external wifi.

use this strings in org.chameleon.Boot.plist

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

after this use origial mach_kernel and start iCloude once you start the iCloud then you can replace the kernel and done ...............

I have Lion installed, everything except multitouch, usb3, ati graphics working. Main problem I want to fix is Audio, it is distorted when I turn the volume up. I'm using
Voodoo HDA kexts. Is anyone else having issues with distorted audio ?

Also, here is a great mini USB wifi card, it's tiny and I can just leave it plugged in all the time.

I am using VoodooHDA and my audio works fine not distorted perfect in both headphone and laptop speaker. My trackpad multitouch works but only 2 finger scrolling works nothing else multitouch. Use this kext for 2 finger scrolling and trackpad tap enabled: http://www.osx86.net..._ps2_32-64.html
USB 3.0 is also working. I am not sure where I got it but I remember installing a generic USB 3.0 kext (it was named that) from a post installation app. Try Pandora's Box and look in Post-Install maybe you will find 3.0 kext there. How is your ATi graphics working? You have 6770m?
