Hi Manwe, great post.
Just a question on your last update. Now, we can used the patched AppleHDA, instead of VoodooHDA.
I'm using the dsdt you had available before. Do I need to fix anything on the dsdt or just remove VoodooHDA and install AppleHDA?
I have done this, remove VoodooHDA and install AppleHDA, but get no sound.
If an edit of the dsdt is needed, could you attach the new dsdt with this change?

Thanks,
AJ

Does this need a new DSTD or AppleHDA.kext? If so, could you please attach it here?

Thanks,
Crumpo

Just edit your DSDT with my code in HDEF section and patch AppleHDA (now attached in my post)

Sorry all, I started a new thread for my DSDT edits (and new download link), but the page link is hard to see in the big block of text (even I can't find it sometimes): http://www.insanelym...4

Joshhh's information looks correct also.

@crumpo: i deleted that output since i didn't know what it connected to (i don't have a dock). I've posted here what changes I made, so you should have no difficulty editing it for yourself: http://www.insanelym...3

I was thinking about getting this USB 3.0 pci-e card for my Hackintosh T420, wasn't sure if it would work. Has anyone tried the PCI-e 34 port?

It should definitely work, I use some cheap from ebay and it works fine with HDD speed about 90/110mbps w/r speed. This one should work too

And ExpressCard should work with other types of cards not only usb 3.0, I use one with SiliconImage controller to connect my DIY DAS storage case and it works almost 42/7 from jan 2012

Ok, great to hear. Thanks! Should I be worried about drivers though? because I know that a lot of them come with a cd to instal drivers on windows, should my hackintosh be fine?

Don't know exactly about this(may be on ASMedia chipset that doesn't work in many cases) but I bought one of this cards with NEC in search http://www.ebay.com/...ort USB 3.0 nec

Should this work fine with that driver too?

Thanks, I went a head and bought one of those.

On another note,

I have noticed is that my camera worked when I first installed Lion. But now if I go into photo booth, skype, google chat, etc. and go to the camera setting it will be set to integrated, and my little green light will come on next to my web cam, but the picture never comes up.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Awesome. any chance you could include Joshhh's patch in the DSDT you have posted at some time? I'm not as tech savy myself when it comes to DSDT hacking - tried it and my machine didn't boot to a gui anymore...chances are good that I did something stupid on the way :| And your config seems to be pretty close to mine.
Also I played with the connector configuration, but found out, that if I leave the dock connectors in, the GUI will stutter every now and then. My solution is to use your patched kext for when I'm on the road and the one that came with OSX when I'm working from home and my T420 is tucked away in the dock.

On a sidenote: Has anyone updated to 10.7.4 so far? Are there any caveats?

Thanks,
Crumpo

Has anyone had any luck going to 10.7.4? I tried it a few days ago and can't for the life of me get my networking to work. I also couldn't boot without using the kernel from 10.7.3, would panic immediately. With the older kernel, it would load up, but no networking at all.

I use it for work, so in the end did a TM restore to get back up and running without too much tinkering, but I tried:

Replacing my kexts with those I backed up
Copying all the kexts from /Extra/Extensions back to /S/L/E

Everything appears fine, except the networking end...which is pretty important. :wink2:

My new DSDT already included the equivalent of Joshhh's changes. However, it is essential that you remove VoodooHDA and rebuild the system cache first (touch /S/L/E), or it will conflict with AppleHDA and cause a KP at boot.

Audio works great with your DSDT, but only internal speakers and headphone jack. Internal microphone and microphone via headphone jack don't work. I only have AppleHDA. Do I need to patch it as per Joshhh's instructions?

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x69\x50\xf1\x14|\x6e\x50\xf1\x14|g' AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleHDA



Also I can confirm that eSata works flawlessly.

Thanks a lot for all the work you put into that - you made OSX a daily driver on my T420!


UPDATE: I just ran Joshhh's script and now all the audio-ports work as expected

Mic via jack will work if you use headset like iPhone use or any other smartphones, my headset from Xperia doesn't work, mono mic with mini-jack works if I put it halfway

Yep, I can confirm this. Just had a skype call using an (aftermarket) iphone headset.

Apart from networking (does neither ethernet nor wifi work or is it just ethernet?) does anything else give you trouble (with the restored kexts?)

Thanks

I couldn't get either wifi nor the ethernet to work. I will likely give it a whirl again in a week or two (laptop is plugged in at the office and I'm about to start vacation), but I will post my results again later when I try a second time. I'll give the new DSDT a whirl at the same time.

Hello Guys
i apologize for my poor skills on osx86 matter, i played a lot when there were Tiger.. but i almost forgot all..
I have installed my T420, ib00t method with 10.7 USB (-x to avoid kernel panics) on GUID HDD, cloned on MBR, installed 10.7.3 combo update, patch with muItibeast 4.5.2 following your list and removed (with a backup) AppleHDA.kext. Just installed Chimera without any DSDT.aml files.
Machine works without any flag on boot, with no audio, no usb support and without all stuff you fixed (exacly as described in the 1st post).
I tried twice to install your DSDT file and i got 2 different issue: 1st time i have my screen divided in 4smaller screens, that showed flickering finder and i was able to log in the machine, second time i got kernel panic also with -x boot.
I tried to do same changes you did to your DSDT starting from mine one.. got DSDTED and try to watch this video (http://www.youtube.c...ch?v=EOyu8sF1YH)

EDIT 22*06*2012
**************
but before do any changes i fall in same issue described here: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=253892
So... please can anyone help me to understand how can i do same patches on my dsdt to get same results? i remember that when i copy a kext in S/L/Extension folder with terminal i had to re-assign the right attributes doing "sudo chown - R root:wheel S/L/E/mykext.ext and chmod -755 S/L/E/mykext.ext. Is it already right procedure?

Resolved with this post http://forum.thinkpa...69ef14b#p574570
***************

Thanks a lot
Do anyone knows how there is a good tutorial for DSDT Editing? i am not able to find all the info for find compile error. DSDTED shows some fix but not all.

Thanks a lot
Bye
Roby
