In Topic: [GUIDE] Making a DSDT.aml for Dell XPS M1330, XPS M1530, and XPS M1730

Okay, here's an update.


I ran that terminal command, and this is what came out:


Index Refs Address            Size       Wired      Name (Version) <Linked Against>

   30    0 0xffffff7f82656000 0xa000     0xa000     org.voodoo.driver.PS2Controller (1.1.0) <11 7 5 4 3 1>

   38    0 0xffffff7f82528000 0x2000     0x2000     net.osrom.kext.Disabler (1.0.1) <4 3>

   44    0 0xffffff7f82660000 0xb000     0xb000     org.netkas.FakeSMC (3.3.1) <11 7 5 4 3>

   53    0 0xffffff7f8266b000 0x4000     0x4000     org.voodoo.driver.PS2Keyboard (1.1.0) <31 5 4 3>

   55    0 0xffffff7f8266f000 0xd000     0xd000     org.voodoo.driver.PS2Trackpad (1.1.0) <31 5 4 3>

   73    0 0xffffff7f80e5a000 0x21000    0x21000    org.voodoo.driver.VoodooHDA (2.8.7) <72 12 7 5 4 3>


Not sure if I can identify any conflicts there.  It looks like some of the familiar characters are there (VoodooHDA, the PS2 ones, etc).  There is that one net.osrom.kext.Disabler...is that the same as the HDADisabler?  


I installed those hardware monitors.  The first one (HWSensor) didn't seem to recognize my hardware...it is only giving me HD temp (33C).  Maybe I just don't have it configured right.


The iStat Menu is working better.  Things look pretty normal though....CPU is hovering around 6% user and 4% system (just with Chrome and iStats running).  Memory is 11%.  I don't seem to be seeing any temperatures....maybe I need to get it configured.  Or maybe OS X isn't detecting my temp sensors for anything but the HD?  Either way, with usage being relatively normal, it seems unlikely that CPU loading issues are causing my laggy mouse/sound.


I think that about covers it.  I'll wait to hear back from you guys before I go and start messing with my kexts....although the only ideas I have to try are to roll back the VoodooHDA to 2.8.4 or to try download/reinstall HDADisabler. 


Thanks in advance!



Based on your terminal output, your system does not show any kext conflicts. Also, I believe that the HDADisabler.kext has been obsolete for quite a while.

Again, your sound stuttering issue might be caused by some incorrect settings within the VodooHDA.kext Info.plist.

Within the aforementioned Info.plist., change the Boost from 1 to 0 and Vectorize from YES to NO.


Also, try this latest  Attached File  VoodooHDA.kext-v2.8.7.zip   165.34KB   13 downloads

Hey Guys,

I have installed Yosemite on dell XPS M1530, Bluetooth works but i can't control it  on/off  and it's not discoverable.


Is there a proper kext for that??


Install this into your System/Library/Extensions/ directory: Attached File  BroadcomAppleBluetooth.kext.zip   5.22KB   22 downloads

The T9300 is a Penryn so bus speed is detected correctly and automatically - you shouldn't need to change anything from default in the config.plist.



I believe that his sound stuttering issue might be due to some incorrect settings within the VodooHDA.kext Info.plist.

Within the aforementioned Info.plist., try setting the Boost from 1 to 0 and Vectorize from YES to NO or vice versa.

Compare, please, Info.plist's of these two versions of FakeSMC.kext.

I see no reason for different behavior other then different info.plist.

The version changed because of new output but system can't see it.


Both FakeSMC.kext versions Info.plists appear to be identical short of the version number and yet the problem persists.

For now, I will simply continue using the older FakeSMC.kext version 3.3.1.


Thank You for your work!

In Topic: Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

In my case it was caused by remained files (probably after unsuccesful instalation) in .IABootFiles hidden foder on boot partition:

attachicon.gifMavericks HD.png


and Chameleon's support that folder in stringTable.c. Simply commented it out fixed a problem temporarily:

int loadSystemConfig(config_file_t *config)
	char *dirspec[] = {
		"/Mac OS X Install Data/com.apple.Boot.plist",				// OS X Installer (Lion 10.7)
		"/OS X Install Data/com.apple.Boot.plist",				// OS X Installer (10.8+)
		//"/.IABootFiles/com.apple.Boot.plist",					// OS X Installer
		"/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist",	// com.apple.Boot.plist
		"/com.apple.recovery.boot/com.apple.Boot.plist"				// OS X Recovery

Please, try my branch boot file attachicon.gifboot.zip


No, you don't.

Back to the post #2577 and read it carefuly.



Bungo, you are absolutely correct as usual. Upon closer inspection of the message presented by the Chameleon at boot up, it turns out that the newer Chameleon revisions support the hidden /.IABootFiles directory which contains a com.apple.Boot.plist as well as unusable kernelcache file which Chameleon attempts to unsuccessfully load.

Deleting the aforementioned directory successfully resolves this issue. Thank You, Bungo!

In Topic: iCloud, AppStore, iMessage NOT WORKING !

The appropriate and successful solution already exists. If you are unable or unwilling to implement it, it is no one's fault but your own. Hackintoshing does require some degree of effort and understanding and the aforementioned iMessage guide is actually very simple and straightforward but does require some effort and time in order to comprehend it and implement it in your specific system. How else would you expect anyone to help you?

Bottom line, no one will do your work for you. If you want a fool proof operating system, go back to Windows or get a real mac.
