Ladies and lads I would like to introduce to you functioning ALC262 drivers with headphone, internal speakers & Mic Input support. (AKA) A Realtek High Definition Audio driver.

Update: Choose the appropriate ALC262_XXX.txt file by matching it up to the last 3 digits of your Subsystem ID, Install it using Taruga's patcher :unsure: by dragging & dropping the ALC262_XXX.txt file onto the patcher, rebooting and checking to see if your mic, speakers and headphones are working. If they are you can stop here :angel: but if the Mic is still not working then download the appropriate 262_XXX.zip file, extract it and perform the following steps.


1st. go to /System/Library/Extensions/
2nd . Backup then delete the file called AppleAzaliaAudio.kext (if you find it) if not its okay. now do the same to the file called AppleHDA.kext.
3rd. drag and drop the contents of my zipped file into the Extensions folder.
4th. Start up terminal & type in the following commands without the numbers or "enter"
5th. sudo -s "enter"
6th. Put your password "enter"
7th. cd /System/Library/Extensions "enter"
8th. chmod -R 755 AppleHDA.kext "enter"
9th. chown -R root:wheel AppleHDA.kext "enter"
10th. chmod -R 755 ALCinject.kext "enter"
11th. chown -R root:wheel ALCinject.kext "enter"
12th. now brows to "System/Library" and delete Extensions.kextcache & Extensions.mkext. (leopard users will only need to delete Extensions.mkext.)
13th. (for leopard users only!) open disk utility and repair permissions.
14th. close terminal, reboot & enjoy.

I hope this works for you. I offer no promises of any kind so if it blows up your computer don't try to sue me (Thats what you get for running OSX on a PC).

Ps. I realize every chip is not listed such as my chip (ALC262_600). But since all the files work just fine for me I choose to use the ALC262_F00 driver because I find it to be the best sounding driver for my system.

thanks for the pm about this!!! unfortunatly i tried this and lost all audio. there's a possibility i did something wrong! i'm gonna re install the one i had previously after i get home in about an hour and try this all over again!!! if it doesn't work i'll let you know! for some reason i've had better luck using dumps when updating kext's than actually installing them. i'm not trying to be a burden to anyone here in this forum but if all possible a dump would be appreciated! thanks again for all your hard work!

after several attempts at trying i'm still coming up with the same issue, i lose everything after it's applied and i reboot and as soon as i reload the ALC262_F00.txt file i get everything but the mic/line in back. something just doesn't seem right. also, i couldn't locate Extensions.kextcache anywhere to delete it!!! i don't have AppleAzaliaAudio.kext in my extensions folder either

Try to install Taruga's alc262testing.zip driver first then try installing just the AppleHDA.kext file from my package.
or you can also try installing his patcher, my ALC262_F00.txt file and then just install my AppleHDA.kext file.

If you are getting internal speaker and headphone support from the ALC262_F00.txt dump and the Mic Input works using Taruga's ALC262test.zip
then this should work for you. If not maybe I gave you the wrong files or something. let me know how it works out. because its really not hard at all
for me to make a working driver so long as you provide me with a file that allows your Mic to work.

see, this is the issue though, i'm not fluent with linux or using terminal, i come from a completely windows and dos based backround, so it'd very possible that i could be doing something wrong! i tried taruga's fix before and couldn't get that to work either! the txt dumps seem to work fine for me though. sorry if i sound like an rookie but when it comes to mac os or linux i am definently a rookie, but you gotta start somewhere right?

Not finding the AppleAzaliaAudio.kext is normal however the Extensions.kextcache should appear in "System/Library" after every reboot.
and it must be deleted. I'm going to send you the file in my system folder now just to be sure you are getting working ones

hears a tip:
Rather than typing all that text i put up you can save time by just copying all the lines below together and pasting them into the terminal window on the line after where you enter your password & then press "enter".


cd /System/Library/Extensions
chown -R root:wheel AppleHDA.kext
chmod-R 755 AppleHDA.kext
chown -R root:wheel ALCinject.kext
chmod-R 755 ALCinject.kext

Me too.. but don't let a Mac intimidate you, its so simple. I just started working with it a few months ago and already Im making drivers for it.
Windows is more complex where as linux is more like Mac OS but with even more options than windows. In time you will come to realize that Mac Os is almost childish in the ways it restricts you but oddly enough thats the beauty of it.

This is what you need to know

sudo -s (gives you root user permissions)

rm -r / (remove a file)

ls -l (to list directories)

cd / (change directory)

mkdir / (make a directory)

cp -R / (copy a file to another location)

learn this and you will breeze thru a Mac & linux

i heard there were some common similarities to msdos but i never really looked into it. thanks for the info!! the pic i posted is of my library and Extensions.kextcache is nowhere to be found!

aah this could be a leopard issue. people are reporting things like this all over the place.
see if you can get Taruga's driver to work. if you can't ill have to look into that.

ill look into what people are doing too get around these issues but since I'm not running leopard at the moment i can't test it myself.

i can't get taruga's driver to work at all, as i said before, i've had bad luck trying to install kext's, and have had more success with txt dumps than anything else. if i could get a hold of one that fixes everything i'd be in great shape and would have a 80% functional hackintosh, i still haven't tested my firewire or ethernet ports yet

judging by the way your library is set up leopard must use different commands. After you install the kext,s try repairing permissions using
disc utilities.

hell try both ways.. first my way and then repair permissions but remove Extensions.mkext last.

ill try later to make an installer. Maybe that will help you out.

hottness, then all that's needed is to figure out the mouse tearing issue and i think were golden, i'm gonna test out my firewire port shortly and see how that works out, leopard see's it but i haven't used it yet so i'll keep you posted on that, i didn't see anything in there about my ethernet port though! i'm gonna give that a crack as well

cool but be warned that sometimes in-order to get wi-fi to work you must install the ethernet card first.
I just ran into this issue.
