#2118745 [Guide] 10.10 On the Surface Pro 3

Posted by LonelyTV on 10 March 2015 - 09:56 PM

The link is now fixed. Thank you Scubasteve for the drivers. Hrm, I don't know if I can help with that. At least not right now, I'm away from my Surface for the time being. But, I'm thinking it's going to need some tweaking of VoodooHDA to get it to work. I'll research more on it and let you know what I find.

Having same problem.  Looks like the attachment was lost when Insanely Mac went down. When I get home I'll re-upload them. Sorry for the inconvenience. If anyone has a copy of it, feel free to PM me and send them my way. That might make it quicker.

I would also be happy too help in anyway.  even if its just a donation.  this is truly amazing work and id like too be a part of it. thanks too everyone involved.  and thanks again LonelyTV.  hopefully your midterms are going well.  Ha ha, So far so good. Closing in on the last one tomorrow, that I'm going to bomb. But the rest of the week made up for it in near perfect scores. Graduate work is tough.  On topic, I'm looking into why so many people are having trouble with the last bit of the tutorial. I plan on going through it once more before the end of the week.

Why did you use ********** ?  That was my fault, I used it in the tutorial unaware of the issues between the two forums. I have since edited the tutorial.

#2040032 MacOsX on the Surface Pro 3

Posted by LonelyTV on 13 July 2014 - 02:55 AM

I've had to stop work on trying to get OS X to run on my device recently. I've been having some issues with LCDs and I will be on my third Surface Pro 3 next week. However, I did figure a few things out: Sound does work when you use VoodooHDA and remove the AppleHDA kext. This is no surprise since it worked on the Surface Pro 2, I just never got around to working with it. The graphic artifacts go away when you boot into OS X with a resolution lower than native. I found the "1600x1066" resolution to be close enough to native.. I don't know what causes the artifacts just yet, but the fix currently is to set the resolution to lower than native, and reboot. Changing it back to native WILL cause the artifacts to show up again. Also, the brightness is fixed and can not be changed, yet. I still have had NO success with the type cover or touch screen. No amount of KEXT I throw at it I can not make the type cover work. The touch screen, on the other hand, uses the N-Trig DuoSe...

Hey, do you have a short guide of what you've done so far? So far all I have done is trying to get the OS to install. In doing so I followed the first set of tutorials on the Surface Pro 2 thread (under the header: "Surface Pro 2 Gen Steps"). The only modifications I needed to do was to utilize the config.plist that I have posted above in place of the one the tutorial tells us to use. This got me into the installer and into the OS.  I haven't had time to toy with anything else but as I said there isn't much left to try and fix. We need to get the Type Cover to work and iron out the graphical artifacts the screen has when in the OS. I'm thinking that the artifacts can be taken care of if we can get the right DSDT, any DSDT Modifications, as well as an adjusted conflg.plist. The type cover currently isn't working in Linux either so I'm suspecting it's due to a unsupported USB chipset. Something I'm sure that can be fixed with the right KEXT.

Update (23/02/15):gkarg has gotten the Type Cover to work in Yosemite. I'm working on an updated tutorial that will cover installing 10.10 on the machine. But for now, here is the link the KEXT needed to get the Type Cover working. Thank you Gkarg and everyone else for all of your hard work on getting this to work.  Type Cover 3 KEXT  ---------------------------------------------------------- This is the current status of what is and what isn't working: Type cover -> worksTouch screen -> in progressWi-Fi -> not workingBluetooth -> not workingSound -> worksGraphics -> works with QE/CI + HiDPI Mode with minor graphic glitchesSD Card -> worksUSB 3.0 -> works ---------------------------------------------- Seeing as the Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 2 share similar hardware I made an attempt to install 10.9.2 on to it. Following JahStories' tutorial I was able to get the machine to boot into the installer.Howeve...

Yes, to both. I've been running 10.8 on my Thinkpad T61 for a couple of months. Everything but a proper shut down, restart, and sleep work you have to remove the battery and power to get it to turn off completely.

#1861036 Not certain what's causing this issue - Mountain Lion, Thinkpad T61

Posted by LonelyTV on 16 October 2012 - 11:52 PM

First things first, if CPUS=1 works then you can try out the T61 kext Protocol X posted above. It has a TSCSync kext that fixes the need for the CPUS=1 flag. And, for me to get the KEXT to work I had to rollback AppleACPIplatform. Your milage may vary though.
