  1. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    Thanks, just forgot to remove one before... I did nothing to HDAEnabler1.kext, I just took the one from the pinarek's zip as is. Now that part works, the input is no longer changing automatically when plugging in. However, sound is still not working. Also, when changing volume via keyboard, there's a lot of delay. iTunes won't play at all. The only thing I did was: remove HDADisabler and VoodooHDA, reboot with -f, install both AppleHDA and HDAEnabler1.kext as is from the zip provided by pinarek, repair permissions and rebuild cache, reboot with -f This worked before, now it doesn't. Even restored from a backup (where VoodooHDA was installed) and am having the same problem. Weird... Are there any other caches or config files I could try removing? EDIT: Full size screenshot: http://pic.useful.fi/21ed425105cbf4c83c147d0fb01f090d.png Just for fun, tried installing the AppleHDA and HDAEnabler1 with MB 5.4.1. The result is the same, no sound and lots of: 2.8.2013 18.09.05,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAController at line 6064 2.8.2013 18.09.05,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAController at line 6148 2.8.2013 18.09.05,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in IOHDAStream at line 401
  2. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    I've saved the native kext of Mavericks DP4 and I have the clean one of Mountain Lion. Attached is the edited Platforms.xml. I was just wondering what else could I have broken since the only two files I have touched are the HDAEnabler1.kext and AppleHDA.kext, as well as used Kex Wizard to repair permissions. Any other conf files or caches I should remove? Edit: Tried removing both files and installing VoodooHDA, that works just fine. Tried going back to the original files pinarek posted and they don't. iTunes won't even start playing anything until I change the output to some other sound card or Air Play. I guess I'll have to wait and use VoodooHDA until someone figures out how to patch the AppleHDA in Mavericks for 892... Platforms.xml
  3. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    Thanks! Now I've got a proper Platforms.xml.zlib file. I tried patching from scratch with your instructions. Since the Mavericks version of AppleHDA couldn't be directly binary patched, I got a clean Mountain Lion one from my MacBook and patched that manually. All looked good until I tried to produce any sound, nothing comes out. I've seen this same problem before, where the whole sound card would stop working even after reboots or in Ubuntu. Pulling the power cord out worked on those cases, but not anymore. Well, I thought that maybe the patched file just didn't work and I restored the AppleHDA and HDAEnabler kexts that previously worked (I copied them before trying anything), fixed permissions, rebuild caches, rebooted and they have the same problem. Outputs are listed ok, headphones / internal switches automatically when plugged in (though, it takes for like 5 seconds in the preference pane to update. It just shows a lot of "Unknown" outputs for a second while switching). But no, none of those output any sound. Tried booting to Ubuntu, there everything works just fine. Am I missing something? I do keep getting these: 28.7.2013 23.09.33,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAController at line 6064 28.7.2013 23.09.33,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAController at line 6148 28.7.2013 23.09.33,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in IOHDAStream at line 401 Also codeaudiod crashes: Crashed Thread: 11 com.apple.audio.IOThread.server Exception Type: EXC_ARITHMETIC (SIGFPE) Exception Codes: EXC_I386_DIV (divide by zero) IOReg: Mac Pro.zip (584 KB) https://mega.co.nz/#!dIRH1bgY!NgRkoTACcGUO8gNb-h-WiBiu8-5ZaF38GYmXP6QIqlg
  4. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    The platforms.xml in this modified AppleHDA is different than the one of the PDF instructions. Managed to add a new "Internal Speakers" output that doesn't work and the "Headphones" one outputs for both, speakers and headphones at the same time.
  5. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    This kext has all the xml files packed as zlib, so I can't edit this directly?
  6. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    I'm using the "front" port of my case (connected to the motherboard) where I connect my headphones. My speakers are connected in the back all of the time. I would like to have the headphones connected at all times. Now if I plug them in, the speakers stop working. With VoodooHDA I can use both at the same time...
  7. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    Thank You so much Pinarek! It worked! I just had to cut the power to the whole motherboard before it did... However, now I can't use the headphones jack and the green output on the back at the same time. If I plug my headphones in, that output disappears and the headphones one appears. And viceversa. With VoodooHDA I could use them both at the same time, or just switch the main output as I liked without having to unplug any cables. Ideas?
  8. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    I just reinstalled VoodooHDA (same that previously worked just fine) and am having the same problem. All the outputs are listed but none of them produce any sound... Ideas?
  9. Crackling Sound With ALC 892 And SSE2

    I tried that but there is no sound. The kext is loaded properly and I do get the list of the outputs, but none of those produce any sound. Edit: Just booted to Ubuntu to do a dump of the codecs: http://pastebin.com/LQZx1uCt
  10. Hi! I'm having problems with the audio on my GA-Z87-HD3 (ALC 892) using VoodooHDA 2.8.4. It's mostly noticeable when playing sound at a higher volume. The SSE2 option on the VoodooHDA preference pane doesn't help at all. Everything other than that work just fine with the Voodoo driver, front and rear ports, etc. If I understood correctly, there is also some patched AppleHDA that should work with ALC 892. Does it work with Mavericks DP2? How does this work? I haven't found any good instructions on this. Since I couldn't find the 892 driver elsewhere, I've tried with the ML edition of ##### (magic proprietary tool that automagically installs {censored}) as there is an option to install the 892 driver, however that didn't works as there were no audio devices listed at all. I would love any help with this and more importantly any info on how these audio drivers actually work on OS X. EDIT: Tried setting iGain to 0 in the Info.plist inside VoodooHDA.kext. That didn't do anything... Also tried Force HPET, dropping the frequency to 44100 Hz
  11. [SOLVED] Help get a Haswell out of safe mode

    Two monitors work, one is just black (has signal but no picture): As for the "[ PCI configuration begin ]": Using dart=0 at boot and VT-d enabled in BIOS seem to work just fine. Tried installing that with Chameleon Wizard but I'm still getting the same garbage characters. Thought that maybe it didn't work and copied it with dd to the partition. Still the same. The weird thing is, my SSD is disk0s2 even though there is only one partition on the drive. I have no idea what disk0s1 is. It's not shown in Disk Utility. I'm wondering why my CPU says 3,89 GHz... It's a stock i7-4770. Also, I remember reading somewhere that HD 7770 would be detected and listed as such in Mavericks, instead of 7xxx. Did I miss something?
  12. [SOLVED] Help get a Haswell out of safe mode

    Thanks! I only get issues when trying to change any display related settings. All monitors go either black with just the cursor showing (and things like eject notification on top of that) or the computer totally freezes. After that when I reboot, only the main monitor has signal, that is until I turn off monitors (shift+ctrl+eject) and then press anything. That is when two monitors come up and they work just fine. Haven't had any luck with the third monitor either with DVI nor VGA. If only one port is used, everything seems to work fine even when changing settings. The graphics card (Asus HD 7770) has a DisplayPort, HDMI and two DVI ports (one that can be used as analog). If I have all the monitors connected at the same time in DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D, depending on the order the displays turn on, I only get signal to either DP+HDMI or DVI+HDMI, never all of them. I've also tried connecting the third monitor to VGA with the adapter and it's the same. This also happens before OS X even boots up, so BIOS messages are shown on only two of the monitors. According to the manual, the card should be able to work with three monitors at least in Windows. Having the third monitor is not really that important, since a 27" (2560x1440) and a 21" (1280x1024) should be enough for what I do, it's just a thing of "why not?"... EDIT: Oh, forgot to mention, I actually see the third monitor on the display settings, all three are there. Even the cursor goes to that screen, it's just that the display doesn't have signal. EDIT2: Did some testing and it seems that with two monitors the display configuration pane seems to be working just fine. So does everything else. The problem comes back when the third monitor is inserted. It's correctly detected and added to the list of monitors, even the cursor is able to go to that screen but it's black. And the other monitors stop updating, for other than the cursor. Until I turn them all off with ctrl+shift+eject, and then wake up again. They update for a couple of seconds and then freeze again.
  13. [SOLVED] Help get a Haswell out of safe mode

    Thanks guys for the warm welcome! I already tried to copy the boot loader with dd but didn't realize there is a bug in dd. So I might try that again. Right now I got it working by installing the boot loader to another drive on my machine and using that to boot. As for the freezing issue, I have now removed: GeForce* NVDA* AppleIntelHD* And after rebooting with "GraphicsEnabler=no -v -f" it actually booted up! Thank You so much c0ercion! Am I safe now? Or will it magically start freezing again? Also, I installed VoodooHDA and now sound works. Even the front audio (Headphones (Green Front)) works, so I can use the fancy plugs in my Define R4! Are there any 10.9 drivers for the RTL8111F nic that comes on the board? EDIT: After a reboot, it no longer boots to anything other than the safe mode... So what now? EDIT2: Updated to DP2, now booting with GraphicsEnabler=no -v -f npci=0x3000 it stops at: DSMOS has arrived ... AMDVerdeGraphicsAccelerator: ** Device in slot: SLOT--1 ** **** [iOBLuetoothHCIController][searchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport! And a lot of SMC errors. But it doesn't freeze, it just stops booting. I can still type stuff to the screen. EDIT3: With npci=0x2000 it stops at: vtd[0] fault: device 3:0:0 reason 0x5 W:0xa000 **** [iOBLuetoothHCIController][searchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport! EDIT4: Ah, didin't realize DP2 update reinstalled the kexts I previously removed. However, removing them again didn't have any effect. EDIT5: Disabled VT-d in BIOS and it boots up just fine with GraphicsEnabler=no Is there any way to get VT-d working? Does Vmware Fusion even use VT-d? Also, the machine keeps freezing up. Everything stops, just a spinning beach ball and the cursor moves. Going to sleep and waking up again gets a bit further and then it freezes again with a black screen with cursor. Might have something to do with the 3 monitors connected (2 working)...
  14. [SOLVED] Help get a Haswell out of safe mode

    As I said in the original post, I've already tried those (and with npci=0x3000, even though that should be for DP2?). It hangs on the same place: pci (build 01:39:02 Jun 1 2013), flags 0x61008, pfm64 (39 cpu) 0x7f80000000, 0x80000000 [ PCI configuration begin ]
  15. Hello and insanely great day to all, says this new member from Finland! I'm building my first ever Hackintosh and wanted to make it extra hard and/or near impossible. Relevant hardware: Gigabyte Z87-HD3 i7-4770 HD 7770 (Intel graphics have been disabled in bios) I successfully installed Maverics (DP1) with the help of myHack. The only way I figured out to boot to the installer was with GraphicsEnabler=no -v -x It installed just fine, but couldn't install the bootloader into my Samsung SSD, so now I'm booting up with the bootloader on the USB drive. Now, leaving the bootloader problem aside for a moment, I can't boot the installed OS in anything other than safe mode with -x GraphicsEnabler=no I've tried with and without graphics enabler, with npci=0x2000, npci=0x3000 and some others I can't remember anymore. Without safe mode it just freezes at [ PCI configuration begin ]. Without GraphicsEnabler=no the monitor just shuts down as there is no signal from the graphics card. Would anyone be kind enough to help me with the basics. Can this even be done? What do I need to do? Also, having ethernet and sound would be a nice to have... (I don't have bluetooth installed yet. Just to make things more complicated I whipped out an old MacBook bluetooth chip and soldered a couple of diodes to drop 5V from USB to around the 3.3V required. But I haven't yet soldered an antenna...) UPDATE: Tried installing Chameleon 2.2 svn-r2248 to my SSD but it boots up like this: SOLVED So here's a quick list of what I did to make things works, in case someone happens to have the same hardware: 1. Get yourself a big USB stick and install myHack with Mavericks DP1 2. Do the basic stuff in BIOS, like disable VT-d, enable AHCI, disable onboard graphics, etc. 3. Boot from the USB stick with these parameters: GraphicsEnabler=no -v -x 4. Install OS X 5. Boot the installed OS with the same parameters (if bootloader was successfully installed, from hard drive, if not then using the bootloader on the USB stick) 6. After booting, install drivers for the RTL8111F. These worked for me: http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=3048 7. Reboot and use the same parameters 8. Install updates (DP2) 9. Install VoodooHDA. These worked for me: http://www.osx86.net/view/2746-voodoohda_2.8.4_pkg_installer.html 10. Remove GeForce*, NVDA*, AppleIntelHD* kexts (not sure if needed, but hey, why not if you don't need them?) 11. Install your favourite bootloader and set it with GraphicsEnabler=no 12. ??? 13. PROFIT
