In Topic: Wireless works once... requires disable/enable in bios to work again

I figured it out. I had to disable "boot booster" in my bios. Now the wireless works every time.

In Topic: Hacked BIOS EEE PC 900HA

14 December 2008 - 02:25 AM

What broadcom card did you put in? I tried putting in a BCM94321MC and it isn't getting recognized. Apparently the bios only allows certain hardware on the mini-pcie slot so only certain cards work. This BCM94321MC worked fine in my EEE 901. And also, did you have any clearance issues with your broadcom card? there are a lot of surface mount parts underneath the wifi card that are getting in the way. The stock wifi card only has components on the top side. The BCM94321MC has components on both sides, so it wont sit flush with the standoffs. I put electrical tape on the back to avoid a short.

I'm going to PM this to you too, incase you dont check this thread.

Thanks!


I just realized I had WLAN disabled in the bios :censored:

After I already swapped cards back and full reassembled. I don't have the patience to try again right now.

Ok. I have my second 900HA working now!!! Very, very stable

-Sound, speakers/headphones - Audiee (No mic Input), used to set Fn keys to adjust volume
-Webcam works natively in iChat/Photobooth
-QE/CI/1024x600 w/ fn key brightness control- Modded GMA950/framebuffer kexts, and then displayconfigx to set the res once (not the GMA950.pkg installer, that one seems to cause artifacting)
-Sleep/Wake/Shutdown/Restart/Clamshell sleep - All work, need the clamshell kext, but nothing speecial for sleep
-Replaced my wifi pcie card with a broadcom card. Works with no special drivers.
-Vanilla kernel

I used PCEFI V9 With DSDT override (which incorporates chameleon), and 0203 BIOS (this is NOT a modded bios). I used fassl's patcher. I read out the bios's DSDT tables through Ubuntu (this is the only way I have had success), pulled it out of the file with a hex editor and then manually fed it into the patcher.

I think iDeneb 10.5.5 is the only installer that will boot this machine with an un-modded bios.

I needed different, custom made dsdt.aml files for each of my 900HAs.

yay!

Thanks a lot V. Max, I have downloaded the file. To make the modded bios accessible for everyone without any limit, I have uploaded the file to my own server, this is the link: http://www.jaringweb...SUS-0305MOD.rar

Regarding to your problem, I am sure it is because you had upgraded the memory to 2 GB, the modded bios only working with a default 1 GB memory installed. This is the reason why Movingmage suggested us to use DSDT override method. But, because there's no DSDT override "for dummies" yet, I am considering to use the modded bios method.

I have found a very clear "how to" instructions with modded bios for eee pc :

:unsure: I'm running 2GB of ram and that modded bios works just fine for me.

Hi,

I downloaded the modded Bios of the link, but as I flashed my bios my eeePC wouldn't boot anymore. I took me two days to get it back working and only after i switched back the 2GB Ram module to the original 1GB (which, I believe it was the problem) and got the eeePC do the auto flash rescue (boot w/ usb stick with the 0306 bios named as 900HA.ROM - and I had to do it without batteries). Anyway, too problematic, so I would recommend you to try the DSDT override method first. And, please, If you find a very simple How To Guide, let me know because I'm very newbie in console commands and Hex editing.

But, in case you want to give it a try on the Modded Bios method here's a nw link to the file.

http://rapidshare.co...305MOD.rar.html

This is the same file uploaded on the previous link. It will only stand for 10 downloads, so please, anyone who downloaded share it later.

WARNING AGAIN - I had problems with this bios and Im not certain if it was the method I used to flash it (Alt f2), the memory module or if the Bios is corrupted.


Thank you! I downloaded and flashed using the alt+f2 method, and everything worked. You must have gotten unlucky. There is definitely nothing wrong with the file.

I haven't had a chance to test osx completely yet... beyond that it at least now boots after flashing this bios!

I've uploaded the bios to mediafire as a mirror: download link
