Hello, will someone please provide a working link or attach file AzaliaTurboTP1984.kext. The links to Turbo's page in this thread result in error.

Okay ladies, I think I may have solved it, but don't crucify me if it doesn't work. I explored System Information and found that the AzaliaTurboTP1984 kext was not loading when I lost sound. And then looking at all the other kexts, AppleAzaliaAudio in particular, I found that AzaliaTurboTP1984 was missing a file version.plist. To test it out properly, I uninstalled both of the kexts mentioned here, and found that the audio was, obviously, gone. I then installed the original AzaliaTurboTP1984 kext, and it still didn't work. Then I added the version.plist file, with the appropriate modification, and installed it again (after having removed the original AzaliaTurboTP1984 kext and rebooting.)

And now it works. I've uploaded the file, and you can see by opening the package contents that the only difference is the existance of version.plist. I think that's the problem we've overlooked the whole time (it probably prevented Mac from loading the kext consistantly!)

That's my two cents. Let me know if it works!

Do you mean me, or everyone who tries it? Mine is still working fine, and that's with multiple restarts into Windows XP and back (don't know why, but Torrents on XP are so much quicker!) I would like to know if it's working for others as well!

I think the easiest way to test it is how I did it, but make sure you've removed AppleAzaliaAudio.kext, because it will clash with you AzaliaTurbo kext! And I used Extensions-Repair to fix up the permissions.

I'm trying this kext on my T61 and it seems to work well.
But we still fighting for the audio out jack.

Well, I wasn't trying to solve the output jack, simply making the kext more stable. I'm obviously not a programmer, so I'll leave that magic to you guys!

Has anyone had any luck getting the audio jack working? If not, does anyone have a good recommendation for an OSX-compatible USB sound dongle?

Thanks

I have figured out how to get audio working perfectly with my AD1984 sound card (in OS X 10.5.6)! I can vouch that this works for my R61(i) system (7732) and my friend's T61 system. However, the audio out jack does not work but I am very close to figuring that problem out too, as I can get intermittent audio coming from it. So far, I have not tested audio input capabilities. Remember: it is always a good idea to back up the kexts being modified.

To start, remove all of the following kexts from the /System/Library/Extentions folder:
AppleHDA.kext
AppleAzaliaAudio.kext
AppleAC97.kext
AzaliaTurboTP1984.kext

Some of these kexts may not be present if you have never attempted to use audio before. After you remove these kexts, delete Extentions.mkext in /System/Library. Then, restart the PC.

After your computer has rebooted, use Kext Helper to install boneyfish's AzaliaTurboTP1984.kext file listed a couple of posts above (#162). Reboot once more, and once the computer has loaded fully you should have sound coming from your speakers!

I've fixed everything for 10.5.6 already, I just really wish my line out/headphone jack worked.. everything else on my R61 7732 is perfect.

Unfortunately with those very same steps I'm unable to have sound after rebooting.

I removed all the kexts, deleted the cache, rebooted, installed with kext heper, and actually I get sound after installing it, but before rebooting. Once I reboot, it's gone.

Any hint towards what to check? I'm no noob at this so give me your best shot no matter how complicated.

I have just tried the solution and it works great. Same machine specification. Just want to let you know you have to use the functional keys on the keyboard to increase the volume of the sound. Apparently the system volume setting is independent of the sound volume used in OSX.

Hello and welcome to everyone. This is my first post in this forum. It has been an immense source of knowledge for getting the iPC 10.5.6 up and working on my Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Widescreen.
As for many, the AD1984 HD Audio Codec has been a real PITA to get working.
Currently I am that far, that I have Internal speakers, Headphone-, SPDIF-out and Mic In working.
What I have failed to get working is the internal mic.
I am using the iPC 10.5.6 installation, EFI and AppleHDA.kext with modded plists inside.
The breakthrough came after reading chapter 4 of Intel book titled "High Definition Audio for the Digital Home Proven Techniques for Getting It Right the First Time". Upon little searching you'll find an electronic copy in the web.
That chapter copies most of the HDA spec document but in a more readable form. Also it was the only one to explain the importance and conventions of the pin configuration parameters "Default Association" and "Sequence".
The pin config defaults from Vista are 100% from this book. And that is the problem under Leopard, as it does not seem to like pin configs where multiple pins share the same Def. Association number.
Therefore I modded the pin config defaults in AppleHDAController.kext's Info.plist and created a Layout and Pathmap in AppleHDAPlatformDriver.kext's Info.plist
Although the internal mic on T61 should be analog (not digital) and connected to port C (pin 0x15), the path setup (0x09 <- 0x0D <- 0x15) is 100% analogous to external mic, neither do I get level slider for it, nor comes any sound through. I'd be delighted to get more details about the physical setup of this mic on T61.
To get the AD1984 ID correctly showed up in System Profiler and IO Registry, the EFI needs to be set up as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1b,0x0)</key>
	<dict>
		<key>PinConfigurations</key>
		<string></string>
		<key>built-in</key>
		<string>0x00</string>
		<key>layout-id</key>
		<string>0x0000000a</string>
		<key>revision-id</key>
		<string>0x00000001</string>
		<key>subsystem-id</key>
		<string>0x00001984</string>
		<key>subsystem-vendor-id</key>
		<string>0x000011d4</string>
		<key>vendor-id</key>
		<string>0x00008086</string>
	</dict>
</dict>
</plist>
Pay attention to rather bizarre and misleading use of keys "subsystem-id", "subsystem-vendor-id" and "vendor-id".
And here's the AppleHDA, feel free to try it out!

priitv8, your HDA kext works great. Finally, I got HeadPhone output for my R61 Thinkpad.
Thank you very much for sharing. ;)

Thanks for the exciting news! But I have a rather stupid question, how does one apply the efi string? Should I put inside the boot.plist? Or just move that efi-string.plist file to some proper place. I've tried to use osx86 utils but didn't know how to do it.

I would be really grateful if I can get this sound working!

BTW: when one plug in the headphone, does it mute the internal speaker? I have had problem with that on another computer. Hope it doesn't appear on this one .

You take the EFIStudio.app, select HDEF from device list and click "Add Device" button. New window opens with both XML and binary representation of the EFI string, you'll update the PCI ID-s and Layout ID in the XML part (binary is updated automatically) and when done, hit the "write to com.apple.Boot.plist" button. That's about it!
You might want to save your conf in a separate file for backup. There are 2 buttons for this, but only the Save Hex really saves my new EFI string. YMMV.

And yes, the internal speaker is muted, when you plug the headpones in.

I've been trying to get audio working on my T61 for a few days now. The weird thing is, I had it working fine, then poof. I installed Kalyway 10.5.2 last week, had audio working after following the directions in http://www.insanelym...howtopic=130425. Then I updated to 10.5.3, then .4, then .5, audio worked through it all, then .6 screwed everything up (something with video), so I had to reinstall. 10.5.2 worked, then updated to 10.5.4. Audio working. Made disk image.

Then I was trying to get my external display working, and I had to to force the system off using the power button a few times, then my audio stopped working, tried reinstalling using a bunch of different methods, sometimes it would work, but then as soon as I restarted or powered down, I lost audio. So i restored from the image, and i still didn't have audio. I tried the method posted by priitv8, and again, it worked til I rebooted. I can't find anything in the logs regarding audio. Where to now? I guess I could downgrade to .2, but I am trying to get to .6...
