#2061261 Brightness control missing and app store issue on 10.9.4

Posted by RehabMan on 16 September 2014 - 07:27 PM

Hi, I have searched extensively regarding brightness control and the solutions that I found are related to PNLF - DSDT editing. However I am not using DSDT right now and do not want to use at all. Is there a way to get display brightness control on my hackintosh without touching DSDT.   Second problem is with AppStore it says "Your device or computer could not be verified." Tried below flags already. EthernetBuiltin=Yes PCIrootID=1     Configuration : OS X 10.9.4 (13E28) Dell Inspiron N5010 2.39 GHz Intel Core i3 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 ATI Radeon HD 550v 1024 MB SMBIOS - MacBook Pro 8,1 For Mac App Store access you need built-in Ethernet at 'en0'. Why rule out DSDT edits to fix backlight?

#2060642 HP G62-400 Power Management Issues

Posted by RehabMan on 14 September 2014 - 07:01 PM

Moving right along, I had tried a few of RehabMan's DSDT patches for my battery and none of them seemed to work.  The problem was not his patches, it was the fact that I was applying one on top of the other.  I went back to my original unpatched DSDT and copied the entire section for LPCB/EC0 into my modified DSDT and then used the patch for the HP-DV6-3165sf and it worked.  What made me decide to use that patch came from RehabMan's tutorial.  You have to look at the patches to see what sections are being modified and if you have those sections in your DSDT, the chances are good that the patch will work.  Since my DSDT had the section EC0 and all the modifications in the HP-DV6-3165sf were to that section (including one stand-out modification of a 256-bit entry that was the same in the patch and in my DSDT), I chose that patch and it worked.  Thanks RehabMan.   Two down, one to go. Will add a note in the repo: # Works for...# HP G62-400 CTO,...

Sloppy coding that was not checked for in previous version of the compiler used originally vs one you are using now. Not all errors are caused that way, although that is the ongoing myth, perpetuated mostly people disassembling for hackintosh purposes. Some are caused by imperfections in the disassembler (iasl). And that the binary format was not designed to be perfectly disassembled (most binary formats are not designed with that consideration, and AML is no exception). And many errors people encounter are because they are using the iasl disassembler incorrectly. It is important to disassemble all files at once, not individually (eg. "iasl -da DSDT* SSDT*"). This allows the disassembler to better determine details about external references, especially the number of parameters for external methods.

It seems like this one is the closest to my laptop, https://github.com/R...Vostro-15xx.txt   Will try it later and report. Part of the problem for people trying to help you is that instead of a signature with hardware details, you have a useless quote.

Posted by RehabMan on 03 September 2014 - 08:49 PM

Not being a programmer, I would not have picked up on that as you did, and I wouldn't know how to begin looking for anything else that might need patching.  I'm happy to apply patches I might need, however.  I'll see if I can find the patch you're referring to... https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch "Fix Mutex with non-zero SyncLevel" Also might be interesting for you... "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" "IRQ Fix" Also the OSID method in your DSDT needs work (it has no case for _OSI("Darwin")).

#2057604 OsX on Acer 5750G (Nvidia Optimus)

Posted by RehabMan on 03 September 2014 - 03:38 PM

Hi all. I'm new in this forum, and at first sorry for my English. I have laptop Acer 5750G with Nvidia Geforce GT540m + Intel HD3000 (Nvidia Optimus), Core i7 2630QM. I want to install any version of OsX which allow me to use XCode. I know, that is possible, but I dont know what about Nvidia Optimus? I simply no need for auto switching video adapters. But sometimes I need performance video adapter, then I switch from HD3000 to GT540m. Is this be possible when I install OsX to my laptop? Just select the correct answer please.   1. I cant use GT540m on OsX. only HD3000. 2. I can use either GT540m and HD3000 by switching them via bios or via... ? . When I need performance for video, i switch GT540m and work. When I need save battery I switch HD3000.   Thanks for help. The answer depends on the options provided in your BIOS.

#2057021 Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

Posted by RehabMan on 31 August 2014 - 07:24 PM

Here it is. _OFF method is in SSDT-2.aml. Disassemble all at once with "iasl -da *.aml". Work with the resulting *.dsl. Then add _OFF call to _INI inside SSDT-2.aml: Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized) // _INI: Initialize { Store (Zero, \_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ADR) _OFF() // added to turn nvidia off }Make sure that you apply any renames you may have applied to DSDT (or other SSDTs) to this one too. Common case is renaming GFX0 to IGPU. This SSDT has GFX0 references, so it won't work if you rename in one place, but not the other. Then include patched SSDT-2.aml where it can be loaded by the bootloader. Make sure to drop OEM SSDTs. You cannot provide a patched SSDT without dropping the OEM SSDTs.

#2055529 ACPI Backlight Driver

Posted by RehabMan on 26 August 2014 - 01:26 PM

rehabman, looks like there is an issue w/ your driver and Yosemite, the backlight value is saved, but on each boot the screen is really dim and I have to lower its brightness manually. Is there a patch for that yet? See issues database at github.

#2054309 Ready to give up on Sony Vaio VPCEG16FM

Posted by RehabMan on 22 August 2014 - 05:11 PM

Yes, built according to the instructions you provided in an earlier post.  All of my responses to you have been based on following your methodology.  I have two separate USB sticks for each of the two paths I have been recommended (yours and Dr. Hurt's)   As well, from the specs of your Vaio, it seems that they are a generation apart with different CPUs and chipsets.  Probably why yours boots and mine doesn't. Show photo of verbose boot using Chameleon: dart=0 -v Note: You must be patient when booting the installer. It is not quick.

#2054113 OS X Yosemite DP's builds!

Posted by RehabMan on 21 August 2014 - 10:36 PM

Soo......   I just updated iTunes with the latest update.  I'm on Yosemite DP6.  I was in the process of restoring my iPhone 5C to the iOS 8 beta, and as soon as the iPhone showed the screen saying to plug into iTunes, iTunes crashed and is now refusing to open with the phone plugged in.  If I unplug it, iTunes opens right up.  This is serious, I need to restore my iPhone pronto :(   Any suggestions?!? I recall Apple saying Yosemite is beta software :-) You're not attempting to use beta software for real work, are you? You have another computer with stable software on it, correct? Or at least a second partition with stable software? Like... perhaps... Mavericks? You know what 'beta' means, right?

HD3000 really doesn´t need anything more to work. Like I said in post #20, this assertion is false for certain configurations (and I didn't even address desktop HD3000, which needs device-id injection).

#2053938 Ready to give up on Sony Vaio VPCEG16FM

Posted by RehabMan on 21 August 2014 - 02:05 PM

Its unlikely that this is a graphics issue. The HD3000 works natively with mavericks even without injection (providing that SMBIOS is set to a sandy bridge model, which I did in the last config.plist). Sometimes it doesn't work without framebuffer injection (snb-platform-id for mobile: 00 00 01 00). Clover has no ability to inject snb-platform-id, unless you count device-properties (cumbersome). Also, if the screen has resolution higher than 1366x768, you need to inject dual-link (Clover can do it, or can do with DSDT). Also, if it is HD3000 on 7-series ("mixed" system), you need to fix the IMEI device-id (can be done with FakeID or DSDT patches). See patches here: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch

#2053458 Intel HD 3000 no graphics

Posted by RehabMan on 19 August 2014 - 10:15 PM

I was actually booting the USB from my normal Clover bootloader. With the DSDT in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/. Should I install a bootloader on the USB or is it fine to use the Clover, which is installed on my hard drive? It should work if the DSDT is at EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/DSDT.aml on the EFI partition on your HDD. Assuming your config.plist settings are not interfering, and you have the kexts (eg. FakeSMC) you need in EFI/Clover/kexts/10.9, and you are injecting those kexts when you boot (eg. config.plist/SystemParameters/InjectKexts=Yes or config.plist/SystemParameters/InjectKexts=Detect). In other words, it should work, unless you're doing something else wrong...

...the video card hd4400 works. (But unfortunately without control of Brightness) (I had to put before the patch with Maciasl to my ssdt.5?... And then, extract the dsdt.dsl?) Haswell Brightness Fix: DSDT Patches from here: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch Apply: "Rename GFX0 to IGPU" "Brightness Fix (Haswell)" - rename patch must be done first and to all DSDT/SSDT that contain references to GFX0 that you're including in your final SSDT set - Brightness patch must be done to the DSDT or SSDT that contains the definition for Device GFX0 (search for 'Device (GFX0)' - Place DSDT and SSDT (if necessary) into a place where the bootloader will load them. For Clover, EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (DSDT.aml, SSDT-x.aml where 'x' is a number). For Chameleon, /Extra/ssdt.aml, /Exra/ssdt-1.aml, /Extra/ssdt-2.aml, etc. Install: https://github.com/R...-ACPI-Backlight The processor is not recognized. getCPUIDInfo; this is an unknown CPU model 0x45 --- power management may be incomplete or unsu...

#2052725 Intel HD 3000 no graphics

Posted by RehabMan on 17 August 2014 - 06:41 PM

OK ya it wasn't. This time I used linux to get my default DSDT, and then patched them correctly (I think) My default DSDT has 1 error, which I fixed using DSDT editor's  "fix errors" button. This error comes up if I don't apply patches. then I applied the two patches, compiled, fixed errors and saved as EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/DSDT.aml   This time I got closer. When I boot, it complains about either AppleIntelFrabufferCapri, failing to load since AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB has a class by the same name (or something like that) or about AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB failing to load since AppleIntelFrabufferCapri has a class by the same name. It keeps going for a while after that, getting further than before, and this time stopping after one of the AppleLMUController errors rather than in the middle of one. It hangs there, but if I press enter, three more AppleLMUController errors come up. If I close the laptop lid the screen goes off, but goes back on to the same thing....
