After many attempts with ######'s method and SL I decided to switch back to my old method with iAtkos (I've a fully working Hackbook core 2 duo with iAtkos v7, and a intel d945gclf2d MiniHack, atom dual core, with the same v7).
What you need:
- iAtkos L1
- ###### 4.0.2
- CARBoncopy CLONER
- Elan touchpad Lion v1.5.3 from: http://forum.osxlati...driver-mac-osx/
- Kext helper or Kext Utility
- External disc USB for backup
- Usb mouse
- Cd or dvd (MAC formatted) with all the stuff on it (#####, ccc, kexts, etc..), as it won't read fat32 or ntfs til step 4.
If you want the battery to last normally, then use it with just one system.
- 1) Install iAtkos
the install should be flawless, maibe slow.
It seems to almost stuck at the end, but it is not, it just takes almost double the time it says.
Chameleon, (it works also with Chimera)
Drivers: intel SATA
No sound drivers, due to conflicts and some KP you may experience,
No usb, it works oob
No video kext, the system has the conflictive NVIDIA Optimus with a double gpu intel 3000HD/NVIDIA GT540M so let's leave it for a later attempt. For now we'll just work with VGA.
If you start normally it stuck on the very same ACPI error many had:
ACPIPlatformPlugin not found:: timed out (something like it)
Start with -v -x flags
it asks for a bluetooth keyboard, but the internal keyb. works,
connect the usb mouse.
VGA res 1024x768, no sound, no fat 32/ntfs mounting, no network, no webcam, no Wifi, etc..
-2) Put in the CD with all the stuff and open ###### 4.0.2
Install: NETWORK: Realtek Gygabit kext
-3) Backup with CCC of course before going on.
-4) Read this guide:http://www.insanelym...howtopic=263265
(the guide is for a Sandybridge laptop with i7 proc ) and follow it. Thanks to BlackestEyes.
it contains just 4 kexts: install them with Kext utility
open ###### and select:
Drivers and Bootloaders > Kexts & Enablers > fakeSMC Plugins (I assume FakeSMC already installed) > Motherboard plugins.
also from Customization>System Definitions>Macbook Pro 8,1
then select System Utilities>Rebuild caches, Repair Permissions
If everything's ok you should have no boot conflicts, native 1366X768 res. IntelHD 3000 384Mb full QE/CI on sys specs
Backup the system again.
-5) Remove AppleHDA.Kext from System/Library/Extensions
install VoodooHDA 0.2.7.3 mod attached, and sound it's ok.
Sleep with Sleepenabler.kext.
it works with stop menu, but closing the lid just turns off the screen.
Battery: install the 2 kexts in Lion Battery
Webcam should work with Skype and photo boot
WIFI: switched card with a BCM94321mc.
removed the broadcom useless card and installed a bcm94321mc card.
Mistake made: the size of the card is too big!!
anyway had to remove a skrew slot and reduce a cable support to put it in, but it finally fits.
I recommend, if you're dumb like me to order the wrong card, to put a drop off silicone on it to keep it in place.
Assuming you have the right card size:
I got a BCM 94321mc - AR5BXB72 (Atheros card) signed by Apple.
The card is not recognized oob, so you have to start with windows or linux and find out the Device ID and Vendor ID.
In my case it was 168c 0024.
Look inside the info.plist in Atherosfix.kext and find out if yours is there, otherwise edit it.
enjoy! your wifi card.
You can also enable Airdrop following this link:
My card was supposed to be only 802.11 b/g, but in the infos it is enabled also for n networks and have to say its got twice the reception than the previous one with windows.
good luck to all, and keep posting progress
just applied combo update 10.7.2 and all seems fine:
- got iCloud
- the icons on launchpad are twice as big as before
seems a little faster
- it' a little unstable: usb 3,0 ports lead to KP after a while
iAtkos L2 just installed, (clean install, just a problem with graphic at boot, solved starting with L1 CC backup disk and installing MacBookPro 8,1 smbios)
- Seems to be more stable,
- sleep works better and battery too (finally got 4 hrs battery life)
- the install method will be the same as L1, avoid step 4 (just install MacBookPro 8.1 smbios)
- card reader fully working
- USB 3.0 not fully working (my printer is detected but doesn't get the datas) also kp if you extract devices.
Applied 10.7.3 comboupdate, just remove Sleepenabler before or it gets KP.
All seems ok beside Garage Band not loading and Logic too.
- Switched back to 10.7.2
if you're using time machine then you'll have to start from iAtkos disk and from Utilities menu start Time machine recovery.
But then system won't boot because this is not a real mac and the bootloader is gone.
CCC disk is not booting either also using ###### disk.
Anyway, the system is there, just no bootloader.
Insert the iAtkos disk again and at the chameleon screen push F8 for start options and then select your Macdisk.
Once you're there reinstall Chameleon and u'r done...
Here's a dsdt for the system.
working but nothing special:
brightness bar on control panel (not working)
sleep working sometimes with lid closed too!!!
nvidia card detected (just it's there, nothing else)
If there's someone willing to help, would be nice
ELAN TOUCHPAD FULLY WORKING!!
in this post:
I've installed version 1.5.3 and ApplePS2Generic.. for keypad and it's fully working, two fingers scroll, horizontal scroll, gestures, etc..
You can find the drivers versions and other stuff in TonyNac forum too, just look for Elan Touchpad driver.
Remember to move the vertical scrolling bar slider on the prefpane to switch on the scrolling feature!
otherwise it may seem stucked.
At last we got it!! Thanks EMlyDinEsH
