I got this working one time on my P45 DS3R, but the next time I rebooted it wouldn't work again. I tried reinstalling the kext and nothing. I did download the updates, which included itunes and java, not the 2.5.6 update. Is it possible that was the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S.

Thanks for all the other work you guys have done. I never would have got this working at all with out these forums.

Ok, I finally got the ALC889A sound to work with iDeneb v1.3 Leopard OSX86 10.5.5
My board is a Gigabyte EP35-DS3 rev.2.1

Here is what I did:

1) remove any trace of ALCinject and AppleHDA you might have from previous attempts.
to do this, simply delete ALCinject.kext and AppleHDA.kext from System/Library/Extensions
a password will prompt.

2) download the attached zip file.
it contains a new AppleHDA.kext and a HDAEnabler.kext (ALCinject is NOT needed anymore).

3) install AppleHDA.kext and HDAEnabler.kext
for this I used OSX86Tools from pcwiz


4) After that, in OSX86Tools i chose

Clear Extensions Cache, then
Set Extensions permissions

5) Reboot and tada! the System Profiler shows an Intel HDA present under Audio.
it also seems to recognize the S/P-DIF Out, although I cant test it cause i only have headphones.

The microphone worked immediately.
One thing though, I had to plug the headphones on the front of the case.
Try around several connectors until you get the right one.

Haha, after many many hours wasted all I had to do was plug the audio into the front headphone jack. I forgot they even existed!

Many thanks for solving the only issue with my hackint0sh!
