  1. 10.5.5 is OUT!

    finally got around to update to 10.5.5 used the 10.5.5 delta update (downloaded the .dmg from website) and use netkas method after reboot, video and sound is gone, used AppleHDApatcher to reinstall STAC9200 driver and kexthelper to reinstall GMA950. sound is back but video is messed up, had to use /movevideodrivers anyone got GMA950 to work after update to 10.5.5?
  2. 10.5.5 is OUT!

    Kalyway got a 10.5.3 combo update pack on the green demon that will update it to 10.5.3. I used Kalyway's 10.5.2 DVD on my Dell E1405 and used his combo update to update to 10.5.3. I then ran the Software Update and updated it to 10.5.4 (probably the same as running the 10.5.4 delta update from Apple). I'm waiting to hear more about 10.5.5 before trying out the delta update. Check this post out cuz you need two things after you update to 10.5.4 using Software Update. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=113623
  3. I got myself a USB sound stick here in Beijing, China. I paid 30RMB for it, that's about US$4. It's obviously made in China, of unknown manufacturer with unknown chipset. For 30RMB (+1RMB for roundtrip bus fares), I didn't really care much. The problem with buying cheap stuffs is that you often get what you paid for. The USB sound stick works, just that the output sound is really really loud, the quality isn't much better, but again, that's what you get for 30RMB. So, the music from iTunes is still pretty loud even when I set iTunes to the lowest volume as well as the volume in the Sound panel of System Preferences. Does anyone know of a way/tool to fix this problem? By the way, I got a Dell E1405 with the STAC9200 or something like that. The issue with the built-in sound is that the speaker doesn't mute even with earphones plugged in, that's why i gotta use an USB sound stick. However, with the one I bought, it might just be better to use the onboard sound so as to not blow out my very nice Sony earphones (which cost me about 10 times the USB sound stick). Thanks, cheers.
  4. what hardware do you have? I have the E1405, used JaS most recent DVD to install 10.4.8 and 1440x900 was the native resolution.
  5. any updated to 10.4.10? I got an E1405 with Dell TrueMobile 1490. Last time i ran both airport update and security update it disabled my wifi (Dell 1490). I dunno if the update methods for 10.4.10 disable the wifi or not.
  6. Anyone know if it's possible to get the media card slot to work on Dell Inspiron E1405 (not sure if other models have it).
  7. Sigmatel 9271 (STAC9271) driver

  9. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 with Sigmatel 9200 sound card. I've patched it once before using v.1.15 and Sigmatel9200.txt. It works. I got sounds coming out of speakers and headphones port (via headphones of course). However, even at the lowest volume, there's still sound coming out of both. I saw that 1.16 is out and was wondering if I can re-patch using the new version (and possibly my own dump using Ubuntu Live CD). Basically, can I patch twice?
  10. yea, I have an SATA drive installed, Installation didn't recognized it, not too surprised, XP doesn't either w/o floppy disk driver... anyway, I'm already running OS X on my Dell laptop so i'll probably run Linux on the desktop. sorry but i'm bailing out on this. good luck.
  11. I have the same problem booting from DVD. I tried disabling USB Controller in BIOS and used platform=X86PC (as boot flag, just like -v). I was able to get to the installation portion. I didn't have time to do anything else, just started doing it right now. I'll let you know what happens next. It's going to be interesting not being able to use USB ports, no mouse support. edit: by the way, I have 865PE Neo2 PS (not platinum), 2.4GHz w/ HT 800MHz FSB, 2GB RAM
  12. ok, now i don't know whether to run the Airport Extreme Update 2007-002 and/or Security Update 2007-004 (Universal) or not. Last time, I updated everything and my newly installed 1490 stopped showing up in Network Port Configuration. I didn't know how to fix it so i just did a re-install. I did a clean install before that so it wasn't much of a problem. Chrysaor, did you also ran the Security Update?
  13. @devilhood, since the Airport Extreme update will disable my 1490 (and have on previous installations), can I assume that the security update won't affect my Airport? Has anyone update to the latest security update and still have a working 1490?
  14. I replaced Info.plist with your Info Modded.plist, did not fix the mute issue. I do have the Sigmatel 9200 and I originally used AppleHDAPatcher to fix the sound issue In response to my own problem, I ended doing a clean install, but that didn't get the Dell 1490 to work "completely". OS X recogized it as a built-in ethernet. I did the switch trick mentioned in another post and changed en0 to en1 AND change the value for IOInterfaceUnit from "0" to "1". That was something that wasn't mentioned or maybe I had missed it. Got Airport to work after reboot and going into Network Preferences > Network Port Configuration. Hopefully now I'll be able to use T-Mobile hotspot account that I had paid for. EDIT: Ok, 8 hours and 4 installations later...here's what I've found out. With a clean install of JaS 10.4.8 Intel AMD SSE2 SSE3 PPF1 & PPF2 on a Dell Inspiron E1405 with a Dell 1490 Wifi card, it's best to turn off the Wifi card in bios first. After install, update to JaS 10.4.9 Combo update. Then I did the following, - Broadcomm 440 fix - AppleHDAPatcher - APF and SMB fix Then, I turn wifi on in BIOS. Go into Network Preferences, 1490 card is recognized as Airport. If I had left the wifi on during installation, it'd recognized as Built-in Ethernet and the Broadcomm 440 would be something else. Ok, so after everything was installed, I tried to update via Apple -> Software Update, turns out either the Airport Extreme update or the Security Update is messing up Airport, because after I installed those and reboot, Airport is no more. Has anyone successfully updated either of those?
  15. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I did a clean install. During first start after install it asked for WPA2 key for my network (good sign). Then, when OS X starts, I have internet connection, however, in Network, after checking the MAC address, my wireless card (Dell 1490) is listed as Built-in Ethernet and I cannot configure Airport settings. I accidentally hit Fn+F2 (on my machine it turns off bluetooth and wifi) and the light (for wifi and BT) goes out. I hit Fn+F2 again, but wifi light DOESN'T come back on. Now, in System Profiler, Airport card is listed but it's turned off, even after I boot into Vista, which turns the light back on. I did the Broadcom 440 fix and now I'm back to using LAN instead of WLAN.
