Hi to all users who have ALC 888 chip

How to use;

Step 1-Need to use DSDT.aml on your Extra folder

Step 2-Open DSDT.aml with DSDT editor

Step 3-If you dont have section HDEF-Patch your DSDT.aml with patch HDEF.txt (included below)

Step 4- Find section HDEF and copy/paste ALC888 Device (HDEF).txt (included below)

Step 5-Save your DSDT.aml file and copy inside Extra Folder(Compile for error first :thumbsup_anim: )

Step 6-Install AppleHDA kext.in S/L/E using KextWizard

Step 7-Run terminal and create fresh kextcashe with command:

sudo kextcache -v 1 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions

Your guide worked for me, except I needed the applehda.kext from below:


Motherboard: EP35-DS3L

I also had to use some kind of kext tool to fix permissions and rebuild the kernel cache the use the terminal command.
The terminal command alone wouldn't process the hdaenabler.kext, saying it was 'not authentic'.

Thanks, internal sound now working!

Hi, will it work with 10.8.2? I did not get the step 4. Can you post more detailed instruction?
