In Topic: Creative CA0132 (G1.Sniper M3) patch for AppleHDA or VoodooHDA

So I've tried any layout-id by changing clover audio inject from 0 to 13, still nothing, only internal speaker output, no way to use line-out (I've my headphones attached to rear line-out and mic and only mic works)

Danke Rockey, das möchte ich aber nicht sein. :blush:

You're now a special member.   :)

I think a dummy kext is also possible, but i've never tried it, i thought a fully patched kext is the easiest solution, especially for less experienced users.




I've tried the latest AppleALC.kext and it works properly @Sierra, therefore i updated the AppleALC.kext, which should work from 10.9 to 10.12.


So far i remember the most of you prefer the layout with working front Headphones, so i made the layout 5 where you can use the front and rear HP simultaneously.

Please test all layouts, any feedback could be useful. The layout 1 i've done with the help of abdouoi and should work with Alienware laptops.


Until now, the included CodecCommander.kext is mandatory, you should install it to @/S/L/E

The lilu kext is in the AppleALC Plugin folder, if you have already installed it, delete one of both.


Here a short explanation:


layout-id  0: 5.1 default

               1: 2.0 Alienware 15 R2 

               2: 2.0 + front HP 

               3: 2.0 + rear line-out

               4: 5.1 with C/Sub

               5: 2.0 front + rear HP, simultaneously

               6: 5.1 with front HP

The goal is, to have only one layout for the desktops, for this we have to fix the auto-switch mode for the front HP.

Front Mic is also possible, but probably without auto-switch , as far i remember it does not work even on Windows, please test it.


I have a gigabyte gaming 7 which has the same audio card, I installed voodoohda but the jack connections were completely wrong so I'm trying with AppleALC, I've removed everything of voodoo hda then


 - installed applealc with the commander kext

 - added the FixHDA_8000 in clover

 - Inject audio to 2 as I have a desktop (from what I know that should be the layout-id), I also have ResetHDA enabled



However in sound settings it doesn't see any device, also dmesg doesn't show anything about AppleALC or AppleHDA, any idea?


I've found out that by replacing AppleHDA seems I got a step further, now I see just "Internal speakers", "Digital out" and the monitor hdmi output, I've tried layout-id 0 2 3 5, nothing, still the same outputs and no way to attach headphones..

Any clue?

Yes, I have the same issue. When my sound is gone randomly, I should boot with windows OS then check sound in Windows. If working in windows, your mac will recognize sound as well,.


I have no idea why it is working like that. I am regretting buying gaming7, not 5.


I just reboot into osx and it works, but I have to reboot :S


UPDATE: I just discovered unplugging and plugging back in the jack makes the sound work again

I got audio working after a few tries mixing the ACPI folder from the OP and the config.plist I already had working.. The problem is that randomly I got no sound after a while it was playing.. anyone else had the same issue?

Did someone tried this on the Gigabyte z170x-gaming 7? It should have the same audio card, I tried the kext available here http://www.insanelym...ckintosh/page-1but I got just sound from the back jack of speakers, front headphones doesn't work.


Trying just this one doesn't work, no sound output detected
