Hi Carpao,

I got the Bluetooth to work. I used the Kexthelper application to load the ToshACPI.kext provided through this forum.

I also got my Nokia N92 phone to work through Bluetooth and USB. Am so happy, I can now bring my Macintoshiba with me when traveling.

By the way, thanks for much for this tips. Because of your response in threads I was able to go through this OSX86 project.

After a 24 hour burn of my new Macintoshiba, I have realized that MACOSX is so easy to use, and it seems that I'll be having some problems going back to Vista. Unfortunately, Mac doesn't have MS Outlook which I really need to access my corporate email.

Anyways, here's an update on what's working with my M400 Hackintosh project

Working components
- Video OK
- Audio OK (Speakers Only through HDAPatcher)
- Bluetooth OK (Kext update)
- DVD Burning and Viewing OK (Tested it this morning, it was fantabulous, no need for NERO)
- Realtek USB Wif OKi (bought from CDR-KING; CDR-KING.COM.PH)

Not-Working components
- Builtin SD KO
- Builtin WIFI KO
- Tablet KO

Applications installed on the Macintoshiba
- Windows Messenger
- Yahoo Messenger
- Bittorent OSX

Hi Carpao,

I went to Scott's thread on TabletMagic. But the Digify.cmd did not locate my digitizer. Can you point me to the right thread to follow with regards to enabling tablet on my M400. Thanks.

I think that I'm using a old version of tabletMagic... (no Digify.cmd :-D)
In the previous thread I said all that I know..
1) change the pslist to expose the serial
2) try to boot with another kernel
3) install tabletmagic

BTW meanwhile I updated to 10.5.2 using kalyway combo update and kalyway kernel installer
then as suggested by spagde I installed also the PCMIA controller (v8) and now for the first time it works...

My main lacks are:
internal wireless (I'm using a USB version ... but...)
internal mic (when I need it I use a BT headset... but...)

Hi, if you get hold of Office 2008, that was Entourage which is the mac version of Outlook and can be used to connect to an exchange server.

I'm clearly being an idiot here, but I can't get the audio to work. I've used AppleHDA patcher 1.2 and the psykopat Stac9200.txt listed here, but I'm not getting any sound. Leo4all install/Leo 10.5.2 System profiler reports no built-in audio, though itunes and system profiler seem to think there is a working set of internal speakers. Any help appreciated!

hi,
after many installations of xxx 10.5.6 i ended that ONLY vanilla 10.5.6 kernel works with both cores and latest m400 bios (3.80). Everything seems working but i have some problems with some devices:


MORE IMPORTANT THINGS :

- It crashes when i shutdown the computer (not when i reboot). How can i fix it ?
- How to enable PCMCIA? Using the kexts showed in this thread it didn't help and caused kernel panic error.
- Is display rotation possible (also using some external applications, if not possible through 950 driver) ?

LESS IMPORTANT THINGS :

- How to enable touchpad side-scroll ? Touchpad works but i cannot scroll ... is there any software able to do that (similar to windows behaviour: scrolling at borders)?
- Is it possible to put computer in sleep when i close lid in any way? when i close the display of the tablet i mean.

May anyone try to help me solving such problems ?
Please ...

Thanks !
Mal

Hi all!

I'm new to this "OSX86" world so I apologize if I ask any dumb question.

My M400 is the model with a max native resolution of 1024x768, I got installed 10.5.6 and then applied a patch to get sound. My problem is that it just works with an external LCD (During installation I also had to use my ext LCD).
When booting internal display shows the pretty bitten apple but then a blue screen comes, and if until that moment I haven't plugged the ext LCD then it wont recognize it later. When I no LCD is plugged pressing fn+F5 the internal display shows a a "frozen" image of the booting bitten apple, I said frozen because I thing it's showing me the image stored in framebuffer memory.

I would appreciate any help.
p.d. 1/2 wire/s trick didn't work either

Did you "drop" the Stack9200.txt" over the patcher app listed in the "Applications" folder?. It wont work if you first run patcher and then drop there the txt file.

I have Toshiba Protege M400, and could not install OSx86 using iAtkos 5i, IPC 10.5.6, Kalyway 10.5.2,OS-X IDenab 10.5.6.

What distribution did you use?

What selections did you choose for installation?

Could anybody share successful installation procedure with me?

load up iatkos 10.5.7 with your ext monitor connected, after you have installed 10.5.7, at boot up when you see the chameleon, enter your key combo fn F5, this will result in your normal resolution settings being available, you can also toggle at the boot up 2 screens or external monitor only or native m400 monitor, once the os is runing flipping the screens will not work satisfactory. Also as soon as you have the image from the external monitor to your native monitor you can disconnect the ext monitor cable. Also installing Tablet magic works great after you have the calibration set, If I figure out how to boot without the external monitor and full resolution settings I will let you know.

If you are out on location you can change one of the 0x72A28086 settings to 0x72AE8086 in the appleintelgma950 and appleintelframebuffer kext files using sudo nano and fixing the disk permissions with disk util then you can boot up without an external monitor but you will be stuck at 1025x768 resolution. Hope this helps...wrayski

I'm clearly being an idiot here, but I can't get the audio to work. I've used AppleHDA patcher 1.2 and the psykopat Stac9200.txt listed here, but I'm not getting any sound.

I'm in the same boat as n9uxu and am wondering if maybe I should have chosen a different distro or something as most of the info I read is fairly dated now.

I went with the Kalyway 10.5.2 install which went over smoothly once my M400's second core was turned off. Basic functionality is fine, but I've got no sound device (Sigmatel High Definition Audio), no WiFi (Intel Pro 3945ABG) and the trackpad doesn't seem to detect taps (probably normal, the buttons work fine). Audio was the main thing I wanted to use, with WiFi being a major convenience. 

I may have selected a couple extra driver packages during the install (for audio/wireless), but didn't un-check any of the defaults. I've also applied the Stac9200.txt to the HDA patcher as mentioned above (went smoothly and prompted for a reboot), and mounted and ran an install from the "iwifi.dmg" for my wireless as described in another thread. Neither of those devices show any presence in any of the pref panels.

Does it sound like I've done all that I was supposed to do regarding the OS/driver installs, or was Kalyway the wrong version to go for?

-Thanks!

You should probably use a slightly newer distro. I don't remember how I set up Leopard, but I have sound working on Snow Leopard and accelerated display (had to use old framebuffer drivers but it works great).

The WiFi never worked for me, but my M400 came with an unsupported WiFi card anyhow, so I just bought a small USB wireless dongle that works quite well using Ralink drivers.
