Hey people,

i just installed OSX Lion with ######, with ##### etc,.. but there are some features which doesn't work yet..

-Left side (of the Laptop) their USB doesn't works, right side does.
-My wireless internet adapter isn't working, i'm using a USB Net Adapter, which i dislike.
-Sound
-Screen Brightness changing (on Keyboard) isn't working.
-My GPU (Ati Radeon 6470M) to play minecraft and Garry's Mod
-HP Webcam not detected.

Also not necessary, but the button to turn the trackpad off isn't working.

What is working:
DVD Drive
iCloud
Sound
Ethernet
Right USB Ports


Any help?

HP Pavilion G6 1280sb

I'd really like people to help me, it's my 4th attempt setting up a mackintosh. Posted Image

dsdt fixes usb issue.
what is your wireless? .. likely u have to buy a compatible model like AR5B91 or BCM94321 and flash a mod bios with no whitelist so hp laptop allows ANY wireless card.

by the way your font is tiny.

woW wow wow, what did you say? Dsdt? I didn't find any dsdt for my laptop? And also, i don't get what you're saying about bios? I'm noob lol. Can u help me further? :D & Wireless card; Idk, i'm not at home, but i could say that between a hour. Most important is indeed the usb ports and wireless cards for school.

Thanks!

Edit: RT5390 is the Wireless Card, and every forum says there is no dsdt for my laptop :(

Benjamin Janssens, you have too many beasts for my taste. In fact you have an entire zoo :D
Seriously now, once you come to our forum, you should stop using tonymac tools, as we do not support them.

we dont support simplebeast.. too simple and uneducated multifixes is like a distro breaks something else... and u learn nothing. so when it breaks.. time to ask insanelymac cause u cant expect much from simplicity.

it just works!!.. then when it breaks :unsure:

u need to post dsdt .
video card model
os version.
dsdt.aml in a .zip or in mediafire.com or like site

here u go try this dsdt.aml http://www.mediafire...1dwbbw5edc4d8r5
copy to /Extra/dsdt.aml
as test with it loading automatic it might not boot

so to not load dsdt u type -v -f -x DSDT=none

Wireless
not sure if it even works on osx yet if ever.
i use AR5B91 cheap in ebay.
and whitelist less bios flashed from USB dos bootable

Newest bios F.63 SP56874
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub...000/sp56874.exe

hard to find a bios modded (look at this one it uses same bios SP56874 and older versions.
http://www.bios-mods...ilion-G7-1257dx

advanced menu F.52 (older than F.63) from camiloml.. i cant seem to find a whitelist removed F.63

HOLY {censored}! THIS WORKS! MY USB IS FIXED! HERO! Thanks! :D :D :D
Wait what.. I started Webcam.. AND IT {censored} WORKS TOO! Ohmygod! :D

There are still some problems now, if that is fixed; you're my god!

-If i boot it keeps loading, than i press the IO button, boot into the lion dvd, and than restart within the cd, and it loads and bring me to the desktop, but if i just restart without booting the dvd as first, it doesn't works, it keeps loading :s (This was before DSDT and since today after installing Adobe Photoshop CS6)
-Wireless.. Yes.. But umm, if you know a solution, please post, if there is none, i'll buy another mini pcie (but i don't know which?)
-Sound isn't working and voodoohda is unstable :(

EDIT: GPU isn't working too :s

Graphicenabler is on. Pstates and Cstates?? i don't find that..

EDIT: Video recording in photo booth doesn't works ? o_O

camera must be UVC compliant and the video card i think is part of reason.. needs QE/CI for other stuff to work.

sound i saw a voodoohda 2.7.3 patched for this model. in the wiki of 10.7.4
