Great thanks, finally got Lion running. :-)

Someone got Sound working without VoodooHDA?

btw I got a U36SD-RX254V and my W-Lan worked out-of-the-box.

Hi guys,

After 1 day fighting with the Bluetooth on our laptops I finally made it work on startup and after wake up from sleep. I'm attaching a file containing all you need and here is how to install it:

su -
or
sudo -i

cd /
tar xzvf /location/of/bluetooth.tar.gz

then execute:

launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.ath.plist
launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.sleepwatcher.plist

and you have fully functional bluetooth after you reboot or wake up :)

cheers

Hi guys,

another question, in Snow Leopard the function keys for brigthness worked, but in Lion not. Where do I have to look at to fix? dsdt.aml?

Thanks.

I can tell you how I managed to install.

First you need a running installation of Mac OS 10.6.x (10.7.x should also work).
Then I created a bootable Lion-USB-Stick (see the OS X Lion install section).
On your USB-Stick you should have now a folder called "Extra". Place the dsdt.aml from alianyn there.
I have put some kexts inside the Extentions folder (attached except of NullCPUManagement which should already be there if not you have to put it in).
Now you can try to boot but for me I have to disable Bluetooth Adapter in BIOS.
After that Lion booted well and I installed it. (If you are planning to install Linux and/or Windows too you have to create more partitions)
After installation boot again from the USB-Stick but now choose your Lion install on your HDD. ( now you maybe need an USB Keyboard/Mouse just for the first setup)
After that you have to install the Chameleon Bootloader to your HDD. (If you are able to install it on the USB-Stick that should be no problem)
Now copy all of the kexts in in the Extra/Extenstions folder from your USB to /Extra/Extenstions on your local disk.
You should be able to boot now without the USB-Stick.

Now you're almost done. Install synaptics touchpad driver and voodooHDA if sound needed, but for me it was noise every reboot so I deleted it.
To get better battery life you have to patch your AppleIntelCPUPowerManagment.kext with speed_stepper patch for you Lion version and remove the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from /Extra/Extentions/.

It should be done.
(You can now put Graphics Mode 1366x768x32 in you org.chameleon.Boot.plist to get a nice bootloader your resolution in OS X should be correct anyway)

Hope that it helped.

Hi there, first of all I'd like to thank all of you for somehow developing OS X on our laptops. I'm not new to topic of OS X on PC cause I used it on my previous computer then I sold it and bought U36SD. I installed most of common features, but I've got a problem. I'm using DSDT by alianyn - great thanks for that piece of work but I've got a problem. Some of you wrote that after applying speedstep patch you were able to use AICPUPM, I tried many different patchers, patches for kext + SSDT + patched for DSDT and nothing worked I always get a KP from AICPUPM, once after applying patch + adding SSDT and adding modified section to DSDT i got KP but from AppleACPIPlatform.kext - "

Should have 4 Threads, but only found 5 for Die 0"

and also I was unable to do anything about it. My CPU is i5 2430M and ofc I used dedicated patches for this particular CPU. Do you hava any ideas of solving this issue? I use this notebook a lot and usually I cannot plug it so it's crucial to make Power Management work... I don't know if it mean anything but IntelCPUMonitor seems not to recognize my CPU: "CPU family 0x6, model 0x2a, stepping 0x7, cores 16, threads 0"
Thanks in advance.

Hi there, I've been using Lion on my Asus u36sd for about four or five months. During this period I had only one major (until yesterday) issue which led me to reinstall everything basically the problem was that my partition got broken for an unknown reason, so... guess what? yesterday the same happened! My shiny hfs+ partition was totally broken AGAIN , I managed to recover some files using fsck, they appear on /lost+found...

So I'd like to ask you all, which partition table format are you using and how long are you using it, I was using (I'm still doing it) MBR with for partitions: win, linux, macos and the original for win recovery.

Any help will be really really welcome!
Thanks!

My answer probably won't help you or sth but I'm using GUID for about 2 months now and everything works fine. Comparing to you issue this information is probably useless but just wanted to get you know ;D BTW Speed Step issue was solved by reinstalling everything from scratch but enabling speed step at the first place.

Cheers

Hi there! Actually your answer is helpful, all my tries were using MBR... so maybe its related to the format of the partition table. It would nice to hear from someone using MBR without problems for a long period!

I'm glad that you could solve the issue with speedstep!!!

Hey Guys!

So, i had a working install of lion on my Asus u36s a few months ago, but i reformatted it shortly after to test other operating systems. I am now trying to install lion again, and i have done everything the exact same way. The only difference is i upgraded my bios from 203 to 206. Now, Lion installs without a hitch, and using the dsdt from this post, pretty much everything works when i boot to the installer. I don't need any boot arguments, it boots to the installer off the usb drive with out issue.

When i restart after a successfull install, it throws a kernel panic at "AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext". I have tried multiple different fakesmc files and AppleIntelCPUNull kext files to no avail. I intend to triple boot with win 7 and Linux Mint using a hybrid GUID MBR partition table, But i need to get this working first! Do you guys have any ideas? What bioses are you using? Have you ever run into this issue? In addition, i am using the latest version of chamelion.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I can't using it, so I tried to disable it but thats also doesn't worked. :-(

Yes for me everything worked except of battery state and the functions keys. (Even Bluetooth worked with the latest updates)

Hi everyone,

Thank you very much for the edited DSDT! Now I have sleep and shutdown working and on top of that less heat generation and fan noise. I originally installed dual boot with Win 7, but didn't use the mac side as much due to poor power management, lack of bluetooth and instabilities with VoodooHDA.

This thread however encouraged me to put more effort into solving the remaining problems. I tried just about all kexts (including AppleHDA with edited pin configurations) and combinations of them to get audio working, but nothing seemed to do the trick. I finally managed to get audio with edited AppleHDA, HDAEnabler and IOAudioFamily kexts I found on various forums. The KPs are now gone and everything seems to be working except the internal mic. Also the speakers don't work after sleep, but this is enough for me and may be for others too.

I am not sure if all kexts are needed and haven't had the time to experiment. I will upload them here in case its helpful for someone else. Unfortunately I don't remember exactly which one belongs to which forum/topic and can't credit the persons behind them. I hope I don't violate forum rules by uploading these.

Hi guys,

After 1 day fighting with the Bluetooth on our laptops I finally made it work on startup and after wake up from sleep. I'm attaching a file containing all you need and here is how to install it:

su -
or
sudo -i

cd /
tar xzvf /location/of/bluetooth.tar.gz

then execute:

launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.ath.plist
launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.sleepwatcher.plist

and you have fully functional bluetooth after you reboot or wake up :)

cheers


I tried your method but I still can't get BT working. Both files are found in S/L/LaunchDaemons but when I run "launchctl list" in terminal, the processes are not listed. Also, if I try to manually start the process "launchctl start ..." I get a message: "no such process". Does anyone know what I 'm doing wrong? (As a side note; programming is not my number 1 skill)

I like to share my full AppleHDA for ALC 269 I edited to get sound on my G74SX I hope it works in your ASUS.

Speakers Ok
Headphones OK
Internal Mic OK
External Mic OK

Sound After sleep OK

Install this 2 next with kextwizard for correct permissions and don't forget to rebuild kext cache.

This needs DSDT HDEF definitions implemented.

Good Luck

@areos - thanks, this could really be helpful. some time has cleared up for me - so i'm doing a bit of work on the dsdt again, i was wandering where you got this kext? did you make it yourself? if so, can you tell me what you did? if it's pinout/mapping changes - perhaps it can be incorporated into the dsdt - which would make it even more valuable.

@alianyn! How are you doing, one little question, are you using 10.7.4? Did you made any changes to your (" a-w-e-s-o-m-e" ) DSDT?
@areos Thanks for sharing!!!!!!
Thanks!!!
