i deleted all myhack.kext, patched the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext.. My SmBios is 9.2, made with ssdtPRGen.sh 35 3200 1, renamed to SSDT.aml in Extra, checked DROP SSDT in Chameleon

Now i have 3 steps.. 1.19GHz, 2.18GHz, 2.97GHz...

 

when i put my mobo to sleep he switches off and i need to boot again

Hi,

 

okay, I'll try to explain what I did:

 

I had the same problem and solved it here. First I got some Speedsteps by choosing the smBIOS for a MBP8,x... Before I was using 9,2 and also got only 3 Speedsteps. BUT now I am using MBP10,1 with these Speedsteps:

 

kernel[0]: AICPUPMI: CPU P-States [ 12 22 23 27 29 31 32 33 ]
 
This states that ALL possible Speedsteps on my machine are enabled - from 1200 to 3300 Mhz (which I can confirm)
 
The solution was quite simple (and states my stupidity):
  1. I disabled two modules from Chameleon (ACPIcodec and Kernepatcher). I don't need them, because Kernelpatcher is obsolete when you do not have Extensions loaded from the Extra/Extensions folder and ACPIcodec is quite old and for some unsupported machines.
  2. I extracted ALL SSDTs (SSDT as you generated and the other SSDTs that you don't see) using AIDA64 under Windows. It saves the .aml files. I renamed them and put them into the Extra folder. Open the SSDTs before copying, because SSDT.aml is not the same as your generated one (might be SSDT-1.aml) and you will need the generated one. So rename SSDT.aml from Windows to SSDT-1.aml and leave your generated SSDT.aml. rename the other SSDTs further on (SSDT2.aml, SSDT-3.aml, etc.).
  3. On reboot, Chameleon loads ALL SSDT files in the Extra folder... and voila!
I tried sleeping mode yesterday and the system goes to sleep as I wanted (Using SmartSleep utility) AND came back when I wanted. It just looses Wifi connection and the Bluetooth connection (from my mouse).
Yes, I got deep sleep and did not need to boot again. I think I could try the other sleep states the next days.
 
Perhaps you might try that.

Try the terminal script in attachment.  It works perfect on several laptops. It is especailly for Core i 2/3 .....m. No need to extract SSDT in Adia.

Howto is included.

 

Have fun.

 

Sorry, I had forgotten to attach it.

Yes, it is the script of RevoGirl RIP. I have found it, I do not know now anymore, where it had been, but it was adapted by a unknown person for Mobil Cpus. You kann believe me, it works perfekt.

 

Du kannst mir vertrauen, und es gefahrlos benutzen.

 

Have fun!

with MBP10.1 i get these speedsteps
kernel[0]: AICPUPMI: CPU P-States [ 12 22 26 27 28 29 30 32 ]

but when i watch hw monitor it gives me max x30 / 2970MHz.. i Never reached x32 to drive 3.2GHz.. How to enable x32?
my cpu is 3230M with turbo boost up to 3.2GHz

I thiink , you can reach turbo boost 3.2 GHz only, when you are using one core.

 

Have fun.

Hi,

 

from back to front.

 

Styrian and darkness: You can reach the Turbo state 3.2 Mhz, but only when all cores are at max. speed. But why worry. It is allmost not possible to reach these state on OSX with "regular" usage. I reached it one time when copying gigabytes of data, while scanning Wifi and scanning another HDD with an antivirus...

 

styrian: reads the posts. Other SSDT help with Wifi or Brightness Probs. This might differ on other systems like your Lenovo.

You totally missed it. We all used the Revogirl (R.I.P.) script or better the modified script. The Script is also integrated in MacIASL (so you really do not need the "old" script). Extracting the SSDTs helps in getting parts of the hardware in the Acer Aspire V3-771G to be better integrated in OSX, when using a custom DSDT. Parts of the IntelHD, the Nvidia, the CPU-states, etc. are in these SSDTs and not in the main DSDT. Your mentioned script is only for ONE SSDT (the CPU one) and solves ONE Problem: Steedstepping. 

 

 

Example: the 9462 Wifi card is now (with SSDTs) recognized as a unknown network controller by the system. Before is wasn't recognized at all by OSX.

 

For AIDA64: 

1. in main window, right click the status line at the bottom. A menu appears. Select ACPI Tool.

2. A new window will open with the DSDT. Click on the "Save" button under the window an choose WHAT file to save (SLIC, DSDT, SSDT, SSDT-1, etc.). AIDA saves the file as *.bin on your HD.

3. Rename the file under windows or OSX to blablabla.aml and copy it to the extra folder. Remember NOT to overwrite your script-generated SSDT as posted before.

Nice to see development on the 771g series :), As for now everything should work, except the GraphicsCard. Does someone have a Solution by just using the nvidia Card but not the Cpu Graphics without turning the Screen Black/Off at Boot ?? Is it even possible ? Because the Display on this notebook use the Cpu Graphics to display things. By disabling the CPU GFX the Screen goes totaly Black, but on the Background OSX is working, so it recognize the GPU.

Hi everybody,

 

updated to 10.8.5 today (using the combo update from Apple, approx. 831MB). Here are my notes of things to take care of before updating:

 

1. Update GenericUSBXHCI to 1.2.5. If you don't, well, the Appledriver will take over and USB3.0 ports will not work. Anyway, if you don't, DISABLE the old driver before rebooting or you will only have the touchpad working.

 

2. You will need to patch again the AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext or copy the old one into /S/L/E. AICPMPatch is still working on 10.8.5 (kext version is now 214, in 10.8.4 it is 196). Otherwise the system will panic at reboot.

Right now my MBP10,1 (i7 - 2,3 Ghz) shows "kernel[0]: AICPUPMI: CPU P-States [ 12 22 23 29 31 32 ]" after startup.

 

3. You will have to reenable SSD Trim (if you have installed a SSD) by using Chameleon SSD Optimizer.

 

4. Good news. My system recognizes the display without patching and the BRIGHTNESS SLIDER shows up in the Monitor preference pane!

 

5. Update your FakeSMC (I am using kozleks version 5.3.814 right now and it seems to be working.)

 

6. Updated Chameleon to 2262 (before). My patched DSDT and the SSDTs are the same as before and working fine. I did not change the chameleon.boot.plist so this all seems to work.

 

7. Disable Geforce.kext in S/L/E after the update and before reboot. I did not test it up to now, but I think the system will have the "normal" black screen.

 

8. If you have VoodooHDA installed: You do not have to change anything. It boots fine.

 

9. Bluetooth 4.0 driver (IOath3kfrmwr.kext from Rehabman) is still working with the integrated Atheros 9462 wifi card. If anyone still has problems... it is the same since 6 years ago: Boot into win, get bluetooth to work and connect and then reboot into OSX... It works then (at least for my Bluetooth mouse).

 

@Tuning: We discussed the Geforce thing. This is just not possible without patching the BIOS, because the Acer uses the INTEL framebuffer at startup and can not change it during boot. This is a Hardware problem and can not be changed on our systems (Thanxs, Acer). The Nvidia is recognizable, bur the GPU changing routine Apple uses in their Nvidia BIOSes is different to the Nvidia one (called Optimus). Oh, the Card reader and the integrated Wifi won't work either... so these are the things that will probably never work.

 

 

Hope this helps.

Ups, stop the presses...

 

Just noticed something after reboot. USB3.0 is no longer working. 

I sent a ticket to the developer and we will see what happens ('cause I am not the only one with this problem).

 

Can anybody confirm this too?

I can confirm that usb 3.0 isnt working on 10.8.5

Ive found some interesting hda patch to work without vodoo kext. The v3-771g has the alc269 chipset and i try to get applehda to work, because it more stable and has better audioquality then the vodoo patch.

 

EDIT: USB 3.0 Work by Booting with -gux_defer_usb2

Hi,

 

I am using AppleHDA here with the HDAEnabler.dylib in Chameleon (2.2-2263) and it is working quite right. Only the HDMI outpot will not work correctly. Therefore I am using VoodooHDA again.

 

I am trying the Kernel flag right now and chatted with the developer, because entering Kernel flags should not be necessary at all... Let's see if it works.

 

Edit: the kernel flag did not work... :-(

try this http://sourceforge.n...tar.gz/download with the boot flag, hope it helps

Im working on applehda to get it to work properly. I just dont like vodoo audio at all :)

Thanx for the link, but I had it already installed. Still the same prob, but zenith432 wanted my xhcdumps for the USB3 and I sent it to him. Let's see what happens.

Hi there,

 

I thought I should share the last mail from zenith432 with you that solved my USB3.0 port problems over here:

 

wartomato,

 

Zenith432 has replied to a personal conversation entitled "devices not recognized".

 

Zenith432 said:

======================================================================

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's the Intel idle causing the interrupt stall.  Boot with '-gux_no_idle', and it should resolve the problem.

======================================================================

 

This means that the USB3.0 ports will not be idle anymore and "waiting" for something to be plugged in and will not go into a sleep state. but all my USB2.0/3.0 hardware is now recognized again on the USB3.0 ports.

 

Perhaps this might help someone out there for the time being.

Hey guys, I have a successful vanilla install of 10.8.5 directly from 10.8.5 and it works great in safe boot mode. Is there a group of kexts and a DSDT to use to make it boot properly? I've got the 771G-9809, which, apparently, only differs from wartomato by a couple things. I have the same i7 series (3632QM), 8GB DDR3, but the same 650M and Optimus stuff.

 

@wartomato , do you have what you've used so far that I could get from you to see if I can at least get booting properly? I have the same install on a VM that works (sometimes) to allow me to get files onto an HFS flash drive to move to the OSX install. I figure since our machines are nearly identical (except mine being American release) that this might be productive. I'm also an engineering student, and one of my instructors is a God of a programmer, so any suggestions you might have about making things better, let me know and I can ask him. He is interested in purchasing a 771G and doing a Hackintosh as well. This could be some good contribution to the whole hackintosh project and Acer users everywhere :-P

 

Thanks in advance! If you need to see my DSDT to compare, I have a copy of it on a blog I started to host files and updates on my project... http://www.wavemadison.net/hackintosh

If you have not til now nvdaresman.kext from your install removed, you can try this as workaround. You need also the for your hardware correct personality for the HD4000. If you have one of the latest bootloaders, you can choose it there.

 

I have patched your DSDT.dsl file from your blog (file has there wrong ending ".aml" instead of ".dsl") with usual patches. Errors are corrected and warnings removed. Done with DSDT Editor (thanks to OldNapalm) in about 15 Minutes.

 

Have fun!
