#2089726 A piece of warning with OS X 10.10.1

Posted by philip_petev on 27 November 2014 - 07:46 AM

There is a bug in the 10.10.1 install app, that may cause early reboots on some boards (mostly with HDMI ports). The freshly installed 10.10.1 system is also affected. Symptoms: you have installed OS X (UEFI or legacy way) and you have installed on the first run all support kexts for your board, as well as your regular DSDTs/SSDTs. On the next boot, the system reboots itself, instead of bringing up the graphics. There is probably a wrongly set setting that also is being passed to the already installed system, regarding the default audio output and it seems that the wrongly selected output doesn't play well with some corrections like HDMI audio edits, no matter if they are DSDT/SSDT/bootloader HDMI audio injections and that setting causes these early reboots. In order to go outside this boot loop, the audio must be enabled (but without the HDMI audio) and the default audio output must be changed. When you enable the audio, the first thing you'll see in System Preferences / Sound /...

#2077410 Thunderbolt Firmware Update 1.2 doesn't seem to install from App Store

Posted by philip_petev on 28 October 2014 - 05:50 AM

I successfully hid the Thunderbolt update 1.2 under Yosemite. To do that use the softwareupdate command (no need to do a sudo).  Because putting the latest firmware revision in SMBIOS worked for Mavericks but not for Yosemite. That worked for me too, thanks !

So I am not the only one  :D See here , somme people say dont need ! http://www.insanelym...0#commentsStart Yup, I can confirm, even with the kernel, extracted from Essentials.pkg and put into /System/Library/Kernels on the flash drive, Chameleon r2401 can't find it without the Kernel key, added in org.chameleon.boot.plist.

There is something missing in this guide. One more key should be added to org.chameleon.boot.plist:<key>Kernel</key><string>/System/Library/Kernels/kernel</string>otherwise the bootloader won't ever find it. Tested with the latest Chameleon.

#2043721 Atheros 9K Series ROM Modding Tools And Recovery Kit

Posted by philip_petev on 24 July 2014 - 05:57 AM

Nice! About the last part, modprobe -r ath9k && modprobe ath9k is quite enough to restart the Atheros module, because it unloads all (unused by any other module) module dependencies as well.

It's all good here! Updating was a pain in the ass though (started from DP1 up to DP8, each update took ~5min to download and ~13min to install) but in the end everything works as expected. Thanks! Glad you've made it!  I've got few questions though: - my cpu multiplier doesn't go below x11 (resulting in 1.09GHz clock) whilst CPU on ML was running as low as on ~792MHz (not sure if this is the exact number) Same here, don't know why, must be something with the new AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext. BTW, HWMonitor shows 11x most of the time, when DPCIManager 1.5 shows 8x, I have no idea which one is right.  - pressing the power button makes my laptop go to sleep instead of displaying a window with sleep/reboot/shutdown options (default Maverics behaviour?) I haven't tried this yet. I'll check it later. Edit: ok, it seems the behavior of this button is changed in Mavericks: single press - the laptop goes to sleeppress and hold for a second or two - the menu with the...

Posted by philip_petev on 25 September 2013 - 06:24 PM

Ok, here we go!I used mostly several guides like this one, but RehabMan told me some important details. The things you'll need: 1. Install OS X Mavericks DP4.app (recommended) or Install OS X Mavericks DP1.app (not so recommended, but will do) or InstallESD.dmg from any of them.2. The latest Chameleon bootloader.3. Pacifist (for extracting the mach_kernel)4. The following files (included in this archive):Extensions/FakeSMC.kextExtensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kextExtensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kextExtensions/RealtekRTL8111.kextExtensions/AirPortAtherosInjector.kextmodules/FanReset.dylib5. An empty flash drive (8 GB or bigger)6. ProBook Installer 6.1.6 I've made most of the work in Terminal to skip the "showing/hiding the hidden files" thing. 1. Mount your InstallESD.dmg (or open the content of the Install OS X Mavericks DP4.app and mount it from there), go in Finder to OS X Install ESD/Packages/BaseSystemBinaries.pkg, open the package with Pacifist and extract t...

Could you please write what exactly did you do to create a mavericks usb stick manually? MyHack doesn't work very well for me. I was going to write some kind of tutorial, but I'll do it when I get back at home (I'm currently at work).

#1948461 [Success] HP ProBook 4x30s 4x40s

Posted by philip_petev on 25 September 2013 - 07:07 AM

Another successful story: last night installed Mavericks DP4 on my 4330s, but created the Mavericks install flash drive manually, instead of using the MyHack tool (with a little help from RehabMan). Installed all updates (DP5 to DP8) and reaching DP8, ran the ProBook Installer 6.1.6, selecting the options for my model, then rebooted. Initially, I had an issue with Spotlight, running continuously, but solved it with disabling the service, deleting the indexes manually in Terminal and then enabling the service again. Everything seems to work like it should.

Yeah, guys, you haven't heard this from me ;) , but the latest ProBook Installer supports Mavericks unofficially (with the settings for 10.8, of course).

#1943288 Waiting for root device when kernel cache used; only with some disks +FIX

Posted by philip_petev on 04 September 2013 - 11:12 AM

Hello philip_petev, I don't see a v0.4 available; in the first post it's still v0.3 by bcc9 and only a patch in this page--unless you consider this as "v0.4". But officially I didn't find a v0.4 from bcc9. What system are you on? Running 10.8.4 and still needing this patch?It's here, on the previous page. As of 10.8.3, many people don't need it anymore, in my previous post I'm talking about a different kind of tests: I've included the patch in the HP ProBook Installer as an optional component and tested it on fresh 10.8.1 and 10.8.2 installs, so my last post is my feedback
