I have to agree, I think you may have removed more than was needed there..

glad you got vga working, but Id put the Hd3000 kexts back and repair, if everything else works ok, you should be good.


I now have my friends laptop back again, Ive got everything working perfectly, no graphics artifacts (or I cannot get it to produce any this evening at least).

its just the bloody touchpad now, anyone got it working nicely with finger gestures?

Ive also applied the beter USB3.0 fix, and the imessage fix.


Hmm, right... You suggest to bring back all Intel kexts? And one more thing how you fix USB3.0?

If you have the HD3000 card, yes, bring back all those kexts, install them with kext wizard, then repair / rebuild.

right click on a youtube video, see if hardware acceleration is enabled.

USB3.0

Thanks, looks like I lost my old kexts :(
Can you please upload only Intel kexts, AFAIK they're not big.

I find all my original kexts. But here's the thing:
With original AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext I can't connect my external monitor, VGA doesn't work. I downloaded patched AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext from the internet, but in this case hardware acceleration doesn't work.

Can someone post patched AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext here. Thanks

Hey Guys, All issues are sovled with VGA and Graphics Hardware Acceleration.
Here's what I did.
1. Deleted all Graphic Kexts
2. Copied only Intel HD 3000 kexts and patched
AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB

Now everything works perfectly!
Graphic kexts: http://cl.ly/1a0N45191S0f

Unsolved Problem:
ALPS multitouch kexts (partially solved) with gesture support!

Hey, Vahagn-Doc thx 4 the dmg file. I'm new here,although been using hackintosh for 3 months now...
Everything works fine. even for daz3d studio 4 works flawlessly.
Sketchup, Blender and several 3D games are also working nice.
but i just want one more functionality, which is to hook up my inspiron to an external monitor..
I followed your guide but still no good. I wonder what went wrong.. I want to use the vga connector so badly.

hope you could help me. :rolleyes:

You're welcome. Did you install SwitchResX?
1. Delete graphics kexts and install the ones provided in the DMG file
2. Repair permissions, cahce using kextutility
3. Install SwitchResX
4. Configure SwitchResX, follow guide link is in the get started document
5. When you connect your monitor, open SwitchResX form the menu and click "Detect Displays"
6. It should show blue screen for a second and now you can use your external monitor

I think I followed your instructions pretty well...but I think it's no hurt to do it again... So thanks again. Btw, mine is a dell inspiron 15r with nvidia..
Hoping it is not a problem :| .. After this, I'll post again to confirm whether it's working or not..

hey Vahagn-Doc, glad you got up and running again!!!! I never tested HDMI on my friends dell, I'll perhaps try thsi weekend when he is over and we attempt an update to 10.8.3 (It appears to be a good update so far for hackintosh, very few, if any negative effects)

In regards to ALPS touchpad, how is your progress coming on? Its something I have been looking into myself, when I think I make process, I actually spet backwards soon after lol.

My biggest issue is not having the dell laptop all the time, only my probook so I cannot test most of the time.

Your post install.dmg looks interesting, Ill have to compare the kexts in there to the ones I used, did you patch your own DSDT or use the one in this guide. I ended up starting from scratch with my friends as i think you know, so might be using less modified kexts than on the first page here, Im also using the newer USB3 kexts now, all sleep issues have been resolved with unmounting of usb devices which is good.

I never used SwitchResX btw, vga and hdmi should work without it on the HD3000, not so sure about nvidia for Nasuki's problem though.

I did not updated to 10.8.3 yet. Need to backup with time machine.

Regarding ALPS, I modified it and still working will update here after I finish it. I've the source codes if you want :)

Just an idea. Why not to make one and universal DMG image for both Dell versions (w/ Nvidia and w/o Nvidia)...
SO IF YOU SEND ME THE KEXTS AND DSDT YOU USED, I'LL TEST AND MAKE ONE UNIVERSAL DMG FILE.
Right now I'm preparing ISO and DMG images for installer. This should be useful for those who just started to use Mac OS and don't have Mac installed already!

Unfortunately that kext is not working properly. I'm trying to build one that support gestures and does not have issues with sensitivity.

I updated to 10.8.3 and i have problem with slow animations and grafic bugs. I removed new graphic card kexts and install from DMG file. VGA works.

Glad that it helped!

Hi all
first I would like to thanks the creator of this article and for the commenters, by far this is the best and easiest hackintosh I installed.

I still can't get my vga out to work properly, but I'm considering something different - why not using apple TV and AirParrot?
if any one can give me his pros and cons that will be great.
