#2041698 OS X Yosemite DP's builds!

Posted by RehabMan on 18 July 2014 - 02:16 PM

Let me rephrase the question.  Is that patch used for Haswell and Ivy Bridge-E only or can it be used for Ivy and Sandy bridge processors.Let me rephrase the answer (which is still the same)... Local APIC panic has to do with the interrupt controller, not CPU. eg... not related to CPU PM. APIC == Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller. http://en.wikipedia....rupt_Controller

Thanks for your quick response . I'll try to do the rest then, Oh one thing , Is there any need to "Install boot0af in MBR" and "Use alternative booting PBR"  now. I think, I also have to clear nvram to update clover . boot0af/etc are legacy only. Nothing to do with UEFI boot.

Hi RehabMan   Could you give me a clover settings screenshot ? Like what to select and what not to. This would help me a lot. Thanks. See where it says "Install for UEFI motherboards" and "Install Clover in the ESP"?

hi again, gygabyte666 I've installed clover v2236 using these settings. And I've used this long without facing any problem and I've moved the efi folder both in my Mavericks drive directory /EFI and also moved it to hard-disks /EFI directory. And I've never faced any problem ,until I tried to update clover version . During updating , I've installed the same options like i did before and moved the new installed EFI file to both Mavericks/EFI and harddisks/EFI directory. But now could not boot from hard-disk,I've to boot using my usb. Plus, I've again replaced the new clover EFI folder with the previous version , now i can boot again. I think I'm not updating in proper way , seeking your help again . Thanks. Why are you using Clover legacy instead of Clover UEFI?

#2035592 Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

Posted by RehabMan on 01 July 2014 - 01:50 AM

dear rehabman,   this is what is got in idle before sleep and in idle after sleep:   BEFORE FFFFF162 (or 4294963554)   AFTER FFFFF6CD (or 429464941)   am i wrong to conclude that the nvidia card is constantly off? Before, discharge @3742 mA. After, discharge @2355 mA. Battery is discharging at a lower rate after sleep/wake than prior to sleep. I think you can make your own conclusions...

Posted by RehabMan on 30 June 2014 - 02:10 PM

great and simple idea!   but i'll try to make it more simple... i'll read battery remaining time before sleep and after wake up. if time doesn't decrease considerably, then it's ok!   i'll post results here asap!   _________________________________   EDIT: taking as reference the remaining battery time, my laptop does not turn the nvidia card on during wake up. thanks for the tip!!! Probably better to compare Amperage in ioreg (under battery) as a way to gauge power draw. Note: The system can be a little busy right after sleep, so you should expect greater power draw just after wake as compared with idle prior to sleep.

thank you dear rehabman, but is it possible to verify if the nvidia card is turned on during the 'wake up' after system sleep? Measure power at wall?

#2035227 Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

Posted by RehabMan on 29 June 2014 - 06:26 PM

dear ones,   the guide described here    1. turns card off in _ini 2. turns card on in _pts 3. turns card off in _wak   my ssdt is patched, but only with step 1.   my laptop correctly sleeps and wakes up.   my doubt: is it necessary to include steps 2 and 3? does my nvidia card turns on after wake up? It is necessary for some machines, but not all.

i renamed them according to your instructions, but it seems it made no difference comparing to the lowercase letters. but i'll keep the uppercase naming. FAT32 is case insensitive.   SSDTs are being loaded (brightness fix implemented from SSDT-14.aml [SSDT-4 patched] is working), but NVIDIA card stays on.   could you please tell me if this way of calling _OFF from _INI in SSDT-15.aml (SSDT-5 patched) is correct?Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized) // _INI: Initialize { _OFF () Store (Zero, \_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ADR) Store (NVSD, \_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.NVID) }thank you. I would call it at the end of _INI. If still not working, post ioreg (use IORegistryExplorer v2.1).

dear rehabman,   i made two attempts to patch ssdt5.dsl   in the first one, i tried to follow your instructions   in the second one, i tried to implement the op's instructions   unfortunately none of them worked, probably due to my lack of knowledge   could you please point what i am doing wrong, so i can have directions on what to search and learn?   __________________   regarding the ssdt*.aml renaming, i renamed   ssdt.aml => ssdt_pr.aml ssdt-1.aml => ssdt14.aml (ssdt4 patched) ssdt-2.aml => ssdtwf.aml (ssdt wifi dual band enabler)   but then clover loaded none of them     if anyone else can help too, any and every help is very welcome!!!   thank you! SSDTs must be named SSDT.aml, SSDT-n.aml, or SSDT-nn.aml where n is a digit 0-9, and nn two digits 10-19. From Clover source: CHAR16* ACPInames[NUM_TABLES] = { L"SSDT.aml", L"SSDT-0.aml", L"SSDT-1.aml", L"SSDT-2.aml", L"SSDT-3.aml", L"SSDT-...

hello again,   unfortunately i am unable to make this method work for me.   i use clover bootloader v2721, and the following files in \efi\clover\acpi\patched   dsdt.aml (various patches) ssdt.aml (ssdtPRGen.sh generated) ssdt-1.aml (brightness fix) ssdt-2.aml (bcm94352 wifi dualband enabler)   for this reason, i cannot set dropoem=false in clover, otherwise i'll loose brightness fix, wifi dualband enabler and speedstep. In order to provide patched SSDTs you must use DropOem=true.   i'll attach my patched and pure (original) dsdt/ssdt files.   i would be grateful if you could let me know how to proceed to turn nvidia card off, without loosing speedstep, brightness fix and wifi dualband. In your patched_dsdt_ssdt folder, ssdt-1.aml and ssdt-3.aml are duplicates (well, one is patched and other not). What is the intention? ssdt-5.dsl should be patched for turning nvidia off. It needs GFX0->IGPU rename and call _OFF from _INI. With Clover, you can kee...

#2032666 Acer Travelmate 5742z Request

Posted by RehabMan on 21 June 2014 - 03:13 AM

Hi everyone,   http://www.insanelym...hd-gma-5700mhd/   I get errors when I try to compile after doing all the steps it requires. I get errors even when I try to compile without doing anything.   So, I've been trying to find a dsdt patch for this laptop so that I can enable brightness control but I can't find it. (it probably doesn't exist)     Acer Travelmate 5742z Intel P6100 processor Intel HD graphics 1st gen. Mobile Intel® HM55 Express Chipset   Can somebody help me? Patches from here: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch Apply: "Fix _PLD Buffer/Package Error" You will then have one error @4766. Remove the line causing the error.

You're right, it's not my solution only your. I'm sorry it is not well written. My English is very bad. I write short sentences because so I better translate. I did not want to steal your idea. Sorry. Apology accepted.

#2032513 Intel HD Graphics 4600 Can't change brightness.

Posted by RehabMan on 20 June 2014 - 06:19 PM

How can I add it to the config.plist ? -gux_defer_usb2? You will see it as an option in Clover Configurator.
