#2020143 [GUIDE] Making a DSDT.aml for Dell XPS M1330, XPS M1530, and XPS M1730

I updated my M1330 to 10.9.3 tonight using App Store, and fortunately it went as smooth as the update before. Performance seems about as good as before; I haven't really noticed any difference from 10.9.2. There is no need to roll back any kexts to make sleep work as seems to be necessary for the M1530s. As long as you have AppleHDADisabler.kext installed, you don't have to change a single thing. I'm still using my latest kext on the first post with Chameleon (if it ain't broke...) Immo

AFAIK is patched I am using DSDT.aml from DarwinX from this post:http://www.insanelym...72#entry1958216MacGirl I think that this is your problem. This DSDT never worked for me. It also gave me kernel panics. Try using the DSDT on the first post from September 29, 2012. If that doesn't work on it's own try also changing your machine type to MacBook5,2 if it is not already. Make sure you do NOT have the DropSSDT or GeneratePStates boot flags enabled.

Guys got some Interesting  stuff to report ! Memory Increase and thus reduction in CPU Temperature - I was curious about the Virtual memory compression technique in Mavericks, cause I've seen such technique in Android kernels for a long time and it didn't produce fruitful results at low end phones cause of the CPU overhead in compressing the memory. Considering our CPU is pretty low end considering today's standards, I felt the scenario would be same as Android. So only way to test it out was to increase the memory , I got Crucial 4GB single module DDR2 667 GHz  - http://www.amazon.co...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1  and increased the memory to 6 GB.  Now for the same usage patterns as earlier (About 20 tabs in Chrome & safari) , iMessage  Notes  - The CPU overhead is lower since there's not much memory compression required. Result - My CPU is running @ 20 deg C lesser than when I had 4 GB memory. My Average CPU tempera...

Hibernation Since revision 2514 we have working hibernation sleep/wake.Conditions:Clover rev2513+, recommended 2516+Legacy booting. So we have working hibernation with CloverEFI but not with UEFI.System 10.9.1+We have a few successful reports with UEFI boot and with system 10.7.5. So may be, for your testing. You have to setsudo pmset -a hibernatemode 29Also success with mode 21. Other numbers are waiting for further investigations.Put computer to sleep. After a one minute it will switch off at all.Switch on. Looks like ordinary boot and enter Clover GUISee the volume is hibernated.Default boot by timeout or press enter.You see progress bar at the bottom and voila! You are in system! It requires about 10 seconds that is much faster the usual login. If you have a problem then you can press SPACE and choose "Cancel hibernate wake".Or you can write into config.plist <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>NeverHibernate</key> <true/>...

DarwinX, fusion71au,  I got similar idea, in fact thought it would happen in 2013 itself with display being the first thing to give out in my trusty 1520. But still holds up miraculously, I might even fix the display if it gives out!  But I wonder whether we’ll be getting the same 'oomph’ which we get in our hackintosh in the MBP (everything would work by default in that  :hysterical: ). Might be when we go to real Mac’s we’ll have more time to put on stuffs like Android custom ROMS, Rasberry Pi etc. and attain same fun as we did with hackintosh :hyper: .  It’s Already 2014 in India,   Happy New Year Friends ! :thumbsup_anim:

@indiandragon, Device (LPCB) is precisely what it should be as it is reflective of the Apple's own coding standards.  Soon, I will be replacing my Dell with a proper MacBook Pro.  :blush:

Interestingly, the Clover boot loader allows the EFI partitions to boot on hacks which would theoretically allow us to actually boot into the Recover Partition itself.  :drool:Now that, I would definitely find quite useful. Definitely possible to boot the recovery partition using clover (unfortunately not with chameleon) - can add kexts, FakeSMC--->enable network, browse with safari etc (post by BlackOSX). I've experimented booting with clover (non uefi/BIOS mode) from a USB and it works well booting OSX but is flakey with Windows in my hybrid mbr setup - see guide by BatcOuntrY. Edit: Booting my desktop with clover USB into recovery partition.

I have iCloud, iMessages & Back To My Mac without Recovery partition. Good to know there is a solution to create a Recovery Partition, but I doubt Find My Mac has a real use. Very true. I have been utilizing the Recovery Partition in both 10.8 and 10.9 for the purposes of activation of the Find My Mac functionality,and I have yet to find any actual use for it so, it's more of a novelty feature for me. Interestingly, the Clover boot loader allows the EFI partitions to boot on hacks which would theoretically allow us to actually boot into the Recovery Partition itself.  :drool:Now that, I would definitely find quite useful.

Hi guys, Just wanted to report a sucessful update to 10.9.1 via the app store.  After the upgrade, I rebooted in safe mode and removed AppleHDA.kext v2.5.3 to avoid conflict with VoodooHDA.kext. AppleACPIPlatform.kext (regressed), AppleRTC.kext (patched), AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext (patched) unaffected by upgrade. Sleep still works OK for XPSm1530. OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 Update Here is an alternative to constantly having to remove the native AppleHDA.kext after every update:  AppleHDADisabler.kext.zip 14.16KB 64 downloads

I have a one M1330. Someone can share with me kets and dsdt to install maveriks? Calling Immo: Please update the first post for Mavericks !!!!! :D Seriously, for DSDT see this post by DarwinX and this for the kexts (what works for 10.8.5 works for 10.9 and what works for the XPSm1530 generally works for the XPSm1330).  Optional procedure for patching AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext for better graphics performance. My own summary of a clean Mavericks install procedure and the post install kexts I used.  The main difference is that for the XPSm1330, regression with AppleACPIPlatform.kext is not necessary for sleep. For XPSm1330 specific posts, read those from immo, MacGirl, Steven M, VMonHeros, bisk et al.  I hope I didn't leave anyone out :)

  Something is missing in your patch because I got an error when compile my DSDT:Because he use a MCDP method by masterchief, you probably use DTGP method, more common, simply rework that patch with DTGP method or add this at your dsdt near DTGP methodMethod (MCDP, 2, NotSerialized){If (LEqual (Arg0, Zero)){Store (Buffer (One){0x03}, Arg1)}}But i don't see the need to use 2 similar method, btw they together will not cause any problem ;)
