Ok, scrap voodooHDA for now. It's not worth the hassle if it's giving you that many kp's. I'll do the same as I'm not having much luck this end. Yes I am using all files you posted.

Glad you're pleased with it. I'm pretty pleased with mine too - thanks to you for getting most of this up and running! Any news on the keyboard back lighting? Have you managed to get clover booting?

I know you said to remove AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext, but I lose my battery icon and low battery warning... can you confirm that you still have yours displayed? The battery tab is still shown in the pref pane, but I can't tick the box to say Show Battery Status.

EDIT: Hrm... Now it's not working with it either.. what is going on with my install? :P

Ok, thought I would do a fresh install for the sake of argument. I followed all instructions and used the files provided in Nov 7 and I still have no battery icon. Is anyone else experiencing this?

That's the weird thing... it is rolled back. I am using the v.1.3.5 ACPI that was in the Sep 3 and the Nov 7 files, and that worked fine on 10.8.1. As far as I can tell, no one else is having this issue and they are using the same files. I thought it might be a conflict with some of the other kexts I use for HW Monitor, but removing them gets no battery icon. I have deleted all caches, repaired all permissions, I just cannot figure out what has happened here.

EDIT: Even using the version 1.5 ACPI roll back for Asus boards is not showing the battery icon. It's a weird one... the OS seems to know there is a battery there, but will not take a reading from it or display the icon.

Ok, I got it. Took a bit of playing around with diff files, but I now have USB 3, Battery, Audio, Sleep, Wake, Volume/Play/Pause Keys, Wifi, Ethernet etc. The only things that do not work as far as I can tell are the Backlit Keyboard and the Card Reader.

I need to confirm this with a completely fresh install, but I have uploaded files here: http://www.4shared.c...2__Nov_14_.html

I have used the DSDT from the Sep 3 files, because the one from Nov 7 kills my Blue USB port. I have also used a generic i7 Sandy Bridge SSDT (think I posted it a while back) because my system seems to run about 10c cooler than with my custom generated one (with no performance decrease!).

All credit goes to Jeff as it's mainly the stuff he posted, that I have just poked around with a bit.

Not sure at the moment - will check that and post later.

I have just noticed that the kexts I put together in the post above, kill audio after sleep - so I guess it's back to the drawing board :-/

You beat me to it ;D Yeah, I didn't think there was a way to get the card reader working.

So it's just down to the back-lit keyboard and the HDMI out. I am going to admit defeat for now on the battery icon, I have spent a couple of hours tinkering, and I am stumped. 10.8.1 works, hopefully 10.8.3 will, maybe 10.8.2 just wasn't the one for me :P Well, if I want audio after sleep, that is :D I just can't understand why a fresh install using the Nov 7 files doesn't work for me... I must have some odd ball revision of this laptop lol.

hi ellnic, jeff ,
i am still on 10.8.1 because of many problems...did you have audio after sleep ? what about usb3 ? Which are the kexts that are devoted to have usb3 working ? If you have some usb peripherals connected both to usb2 & usb ports, have you got a message after resuming from sleep that the devices aren't disconnected safely ? It loses connection on usb ports when resumed to sleep with error messages here...there too?
Thanks!
mal

Mal, I'm having some issues with 10.8.2 as well so I'm probably not the best person to advise... my problems are loss of the battery icon and blue USB port (USB 3 - ie. it doesn't work at all - not with any device). If I get USB 3 and battery working, I lose audio after sleep :wallbash: I don't have loss of audio after sleep with the Nov 7 files though, nor USB devices being disconnected.

Yes 10.8.1 is spot on. 10.8.3 will be out soon as its already been released to developers so maybe that will make a difference :-)

I have uploaded a new package to take care of usb 3.0, battery statues. Make sure to remove everything voodoo. As for usb error after sleep, I have not found a solution yet. But backlit keyboard works on my system after sleep. (make sure to install nvidia drivers for sleep to work). Ellnic, I am not sure why AppleHDA is not working for you after sleep.

Nice one. The Nov 21 files fix my USB 3 and battery. Wanna know the weird part? My audio works after sleep but I still have no backlit keys. Lol. Work that out :-P

I am going to do a fresh install on my external USB drive tomorrow as I might just have something messed up. I've played around a lot with S/L/E so it could be a fluke.

I noticed the SMBIOS has changed to a MBP 8,1 which is the 13 inch. (unless I imagined this?) was it 8,2 or 8,3 before? This could have an impact on backlit keys.

Interestingly, most my function keys work now. I can turn wifi on and off, sleep, adjust volume, play/pause etc, turn the screen on and off, even the trackpad one works. The only ones that don't work are backlit keys, and display brightness and if I dare touch the one that changes the display output the system hangs :-P

But, over all very pleased. Moving in the right direction. Thanks again to Jeff- will report with more findings on fresh install tomorrow, I'm turning in now - its nearly 2am.

EDIT: By the way, it looks like my old sensor Kexts stopped working - these work well: http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=3349

EDIT2: Just in case I am doing something wrong, how are you getting your backlit keyboards to work? I have tried using the fn+F3/F4 and also tapping the lights out button in the top left a couple of times...
