Hi soulreaver1337, we all AppleHDA newbies, but we're trying, OK?

Here's a slimmed version, with Taruga's like PathMap, so it will be easier to work with.

hey, im writing something here, but don't think i'm not trying again and again ;)
i only want to get informations with my questions from persons who know more about it than me ;)

Well, I had the same empty in/out under sound while I was dealing with my ALC662, be patetient, try little node-configurations first, you need to get a Mic or Line-out showing first. then try to increment it, by adding another node-configuration entry, it's going to be a hard work.
In the PathMaps node-configurations for 663 you need to put first Mics or Line-Ins, next will be Speakers, Line-Outs, Headphones.
Maybe I'm wrong, but you're limited to 5 principal entries in PathMaps.
If you take a look at the graph there's a (0x10 Stereo Digital) ---> (0x11 [N/A] Speaker at Ext Rear Mono Digital OUT), I didn't declared it in your PathMap cos', some changes produce a kernel panic at startup.
Do you have another partition or hard disk with a working system? In that case you can try wildest combinations.
So you can startup using the other system, fix the bad AppleHDA.kext and do this in terminal (replace tiger with the name of the one you're fixing):

chmod -R 755 /Volumes/Tiger/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext
chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/Tiger/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext
rm /Volumes/Tiger/System/Library/Extensions.mkext
diskutil repairPermissions /Volumes/Tiger/System/Library/Extensions/

I'm still working on ALC662, so if I see in another thread a finding, or maybe have a own finding, I will share with you.

the main thing which is confusing me is this {censored} 0 1 2 3 4 5 seperation in the plist file. i always don't know which number is what and then if you go in 0 which should be the mic there is suddenly again a 0 1 where only should be a 0 if i can trust the tutorials for patching applehda.kext files ;) That is my main problem. to know which number is what. the node numbers gave me the applehda patcher by taruga. it printed out
Back Mic: 9 34 24

  Line In  : 8 35 26

  Speaker  : 20 12 2

  LineOut 1: 21 13 3 

  Headphone: 27 38 37

  Spdif Out: 30 6

could be a last help that you say which is what?


Root>IOKitPersonalities>HDA Driver>PathMaps>1>0 = Mic
Root>IOKitPersonalities>HDA Driver>PathMaps>1>1 = LineIn
there are 5 or 6 ones in the plist file. but not with only one path to the nodes. normally, for example, there should be one path until the last part where 3 nodes have to be configured for the mic. but in the middle there are suddenly 2 like i wrote above.

sorry if i steal your time but like i said, i'm a mac newbie ;)
