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

Did you delete your native trackpad prefpane?  I deleted the file from my dropbox because it is quite a large file (approx 100MB) and you can extract it for yourself from your Mavericks installer anyway (search the "Essentials.pkg" with the Pacifist.app).  If you are really desperate and have lost your installer, let me know & I will re-up for a week or so (it takes a few hours to upload the damn thing!).


The native Trackpad.prefPane is a mere 3 MB after you remove the useless touchpad tutorial videos which reside in its Contents/Resources directory.

I have already uploaded it a few posts earier.

I've tried the kext but the tap and also the left button was out of control, I need to tap 3 or4 times to have the left click. Could be the different panel? do you use the new kext without problems? Only the scroll was better, less speed and more natural scroll. In the comments I've read multitouch but the only thing I've is the two fingers scroll. Do you have zoom and others function with the new kext?


I'm not sure which kext you are referring to exactly; perhaps, you should express yourself with more clarity.

If you're referring to the Rehabman's branch of the VoodooPS2Controller.kext, then my experience with it is limited as my current VoodooPS2Controller.kext version 1.1,

which I have been using for years, is fully operational on my system. I do believe that the Rehabman's branch of the VoodooPS2Controller.kext is supposed to be compatible with 

the Apple's native TrackPad.prefpane which obviously eliminates the need for a modified Trackpad.prefpane.

hi Darwinx can you upload the original prefpanel for the new alps kext? thank you. The linked dropbox folder doesn't work anymore


I did delete the Dropbox hackintosh file collection as it required constant updating, and there didn't seem to be much of an interest for it. Is this what you're looking for?

Sleep is still like 10.9.2 and 10.9.3 using all vanilla kexts - works perfectly for the first invokation but unfortunately triggers a reboot when you do it a second time.  I haven't tried rolling back any kexts at this stage but I doubt we will have any luck unless someone discovers/creates a rollback AppleACPIPlatform.kext that is compatible with Mavericks 10.9.2+ & Yosemite.


It really isn't a bother once you get used to it.....just avoid triggering the second sleep (by shutting down instead) :).


I see. Unfortunately, I am simply unwilling to compromise on sleep at this point. Thank You.

Yes, you can use DarwinX's patched DSDT and place it in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched as described here.


The newer the machine, the better it is to use Clover.  On our aging laptops, it is a matter of personal preference - I recommend Clover but I am slightly biased :).  The boot is slightly slower since we are using Clover's legacy pathway (instead of UEFI) but Clover has way more features and flexibility than chameleon.


NB  If you dual boot with Windows, it is important to install UEFI Windows on a full GUID/GPT disk.  Clover does not play well with legacy installs of Windows on MBR/hybrid MBR drives for our machines.


OSX Yosemite DP1 successfully installs on XPSm1530 with Clover

At the moment, Clover is the only bootloader working with OSX Yosemite 10.10 due to changes implemented by Apple to the kernel cache :yes:.


Version 2695+ uploaded by Slice in this post can inject kexts properly in 10.10 so if you're running Clover, you can try it out for yourself :thumbsup_anim:.  Instructions on creating an OSX 10.10 installer here.


No need for single user mode as described in early guides. 

  • Boot with kext-dev-mode=1 (put this under boot arguments in your config.plist) to allow unsigned hackintosh kexts
  • Place FakeSMC & VoodooPS2.kext in the EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other or 10.10 folder

Everything running like in 10.9.2 & 10.9.3 and things like Appstore, iCloud, iMessage etc are OK.  Just reinstall VoodooHDA.kext and AppleHDADisabler.kext in S/L/E with kext utility to get sound.  Temps and speedstep working well with Clover...


Great work! What is the status of the Sleep mode on our systems under the OS 10.10? Thanks!
