Samsung 840 pro 256gb... Not bad!

15 July 2013 - 12:00 PM

Pretty much bang on what they quote for read, write not bad either!

Have ordered a new 6gbps cable too as not sure what is in there at the moment, will see if it makes a difference!


Guide: Getting broadcom bluetooth devices ( eg DBT-122) 100%

13 July 2013 - 03:04 AM

*EDIT* Currently working on fixing computer waking itself up immediately after forcing it to "sleep", when this occurs bluetooth gets knocked out as well for a few seconds. Currently only bullet point 3 100% working. I will let it hibernate and report back.


*Edit 2*

Computer display will turn off, but computer will not completely hibernate. Side scroll bug was present during one of the tests.


Hi guys,


if anyone was in same boat as me:


  • bluetooth wouldn't work properly after sleep - side scrolling stopped working
  • bluetooth delay on startup, had to wait several seconds to become operational.
  • allow bluetooth devices to wake this computer greyed out

I have the fix ( Full credit to Gonzo here http://www.insanelym...d-driver/page-3 )


Ok, to the guide:


Step 1:

You need to obtain (In dec, not hex) your DeviceID, and ProductID.

Go to system profiler and under bluetooth hardware settings note your broadcom devices productID, and vendorID

These will be in Hex, so we need to convert them to dec.


Go here: http://www.binaryhex...cimal-converter


Convert both values, and copy them somewhere.


Step 2:

Navigate to S/L/E and locate IOBluetoothFamily.kext



Next, using the duplicate you've presumably saved to your desktop in a folder called BACKUP right click on it and 'Show Package Contents'


Go to plugins, and do the same to the file called 'BroadcomBluetoothHCIControllerUSBTransport'


Go to Contents


Navigate to the Info.plist file


Step 3:


Open it up in your favourite text editor (I Use PListEditor Pro) 


We have a bunch of jargon, but we need to add our newly created device string

		<key>Broadcom BCM92045USBBluetoothHCIController</key>

You can put it wherever I guess, mine went just after the string of code that ends:


Step 4:


When this is done, save the new Info.plist (You will have to duplicate I think) somewhere else, and replace the one we just opened.


To finish, drop it into kextutility and let it replace the one in S/L/E


from there, reboot, and you'll be sweet :)


Attached my modified IOBluetooth file (Though you should follow my instructions and do it yourself, number 1 because it's better to learn, and number two because I'm not sure if product and device IDs are unique.


Enjoy! And please, backup your {censored} as I am no expert and take no responsibilities if you mess anything up.

Found cause of freezes, need help with solution

06 July 2013 - 11:14 PM

So, after running 10.8.4 with (Specs listed in sig) and freezefixapp (Which wasn't working.. Or so i thought!) here's the situation:


When running something that prevents system from sleeping (ie Torrent software) the computer will lock up at random intervals. Sometimes throwing a visible KP, othertimes just locking up completely. This also happens when you disable sleep/hibernate completely.

When this isn't running, system will hibernate, sleep and resume as normal. So bizarre, if anyone could shed some light on a possible solution it would be much appreciated. 2 weeks of re-installing and experimenting thus far has not helped.


P.S. I was trying to paste a log of the last kernel panic, but was not sure where i'd find it? I did try googling to no avail.




*Edit* Also forgot to mention, for this build I am running DSDT-less (Although I do have the file on hand if it makes a difference [It froze anyway with it].. In E/E nullcpupowermanagement.kext is in there for what it's worth.

Which system profile for stability? (System halts after a few minutes)

01 July 2013 - 01:22 AM

Hi guys,


Recently re-formatted due to a failed hard drive.

After 10 or so minutes, my computer just freezes and completely hangs (unrecoverable, no error messages). Could this be a system profile thing? If so, based on my specs (signature), which profile would work best? I have been told iMac 12,2.
