Right now, I am away from my computer so I haven't updated to 10.7.2 yet. I did take a look at your DSDT file and noticed that it is not an up to date version of the DSDT that I'd shared. Secondly, the easiest way to see if there is an overall problem with the DSDT or just with the GPU part is to remove Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) from Device (VGA) and then either boot with -x or use GraphicEnabler=Yes.

Also, you can remove the GPU injector from my DSDT and try that file as well.
Let us know the result.

Thanks for the suggesting the removal of method from device (VGA). Now its booting properly. Haven't tried VGA Output/HDMI after removing the method. Hope this issue can be solved.

Hello guys,

I updated the second post with the files I am using right now. I managed to get battery working again. There is one more fix that I want to share, which is to get graphic power management working. Without it, as you may have noticed, the graphic performance is really bad on Lion.

Stay tuned.

I wanted to inform you about an issue with the following DSDT.
When I upgraded to 10.7.2, my screen turns off at login, as if my screen has no power. Please see if you have the same issue? Kindly suggest me a solution. (DSDT Fix if possible)

Best Regards!!

I am not so sure about atheros' 64 bit support after 10.6.5. I dont want to take risk ordering the card and not having support in 64bit mode. I will be buying the same HP BCM94322MC card you have referred.
@Valv, @JBraddock:

I am not sure, if this is the right place to ask question about the native resolution while booting, but since its related to HDX, I suppose it not a problem.

How do i get native 1920x1080 res in the bootloader? I have GT 130M, and the video res options only shows 1280x720 as max resolution supported. I have read that many people are getting native resolution while booting, and it really looks nice having native res. I hope its possible. Can you please suggest me the solution, if one exists.

I tried AnVaL's ACPI loader, and while booting the bootloader only shows up in half of the screen, squeezed. The rest of the screen shows static noise, as seen in the tv, but in colour. It looked very bad. So I switched back chameleon RC5. What am I doing wrong here?

One more thing, if you guys dont mind, how do I add go about adding GT 130M settings in the DSDT, coz here only 9600M GT is referred. In my current DSDT, 9600M GT settings are loaded. Further, I cannot change the brightness of the screen from the keyboard. :(

I patched my DSDT using DSDT Autopatcher. I am attaching the extracted DSDT and the one I am currently using. If its convenient with you guys, please suggest the changes needed in it.
Can you also guide me to a post or some other solution for SSDT? I see you have got C-states n P-states using SSDT, in your signature.

Do we definitely need that hack? I ordered HP Atheros AR9280 but my God, this whole shipping process turned out to be a mess for me (: It's been one month and then xmass... @hbk_007, did you follow other posts in AnVaL topic about SMbios etc. Do you want me to provide you with mine? @Valv, Thanks for the work again. BTW, could you please share the mark-i version you are using?

Hi,Sorry for providing this info, but to my knowledge, Atheros cards work only in 32-bit kernel mode, the driver is not yet available for x64. Please correct me if I am wrong. All the new MBPs, iMacs are being shipped with BCM94322MC and they work in 64-bit. This is the reason I am thinking of ordering BCM94322MC. If you dont want the 104 error, then I suggest the flashing method. I had no problems flashing. It was as smooth as butter. Regarding the smbios, I am not aware AnVal's post. Could you please give me a link to it, and provide me your smbios.plist file too.

Just a side note, to my knowledge, BCM43xx series is very old. I have one of those card on my previous laptop. Why don't you try to use a wireless-n compatible card?

@JBraddock: Actually, I just had that card available to me for testing the bios mod and if it was recognized as airport card by using the script. I wanted to run the test before ordering the card form ebay. I'll be ordering BCM94322MC full mini pci-e card soon for airport feature in my MBP16.
@Valv: the wireless rf button is of no use, since I wont be switching off my wifi. I hardly use the button anyway. I'll be taping the pin20 on the card once I get it.Thanx for pointing out the rf wireless button problem with this mod.
