  1. Is Steve hurting Apple?

    This guy is 10000% correct. If I had taken the time to make a comment, I would have said the same thing. Not just part of it is correct, everything he says is absolutely correct. Don't believe "us"... Well, I have a lot of experience in this area, and have used the products and been involved in Apple from the very beginning. Owning the stock is risky and rewarding. Just don't buy it the day before something happens to him, and if you have to sell, don't do it the day after...
  2. Fujitsu T-421X TabletPC

    This is what I call QUICK-AND-DIRTY software! It works, and has NO features! I don't have the time to go much beyond the 80/20 rule... Now, wireless needs to get solved! Using my Fujitsu through my bluetooth phone just doesn't seem as snappy as wifi! Glad you got your tablet working, these Fuji's are nice machines. I have the dual battery pack (takes the place of the DVD drive) and get around 6-7 hours of use per charge!

    Great work Scott! Looking forward to having a configurable pref-pane tablet driver! I wonder if it can be configured to handle rotation if we ever get that working from a graphics driver perspective...

    The CPU is going to be on the bottom and will mean you have to pretty much disassemble the whole computer. I have no idea if it is really socketed... If they're identical computers then I guess it would make sense from a cost standpoint to socket it so Fujitsu wouldn't need two motherboard designs...

    How to access T4210 Wifi and/or bluetooth cards: remove AC power, and battery. There are three screws on the bottom of the T4210 near the rear edge in the rear center that have arrows underneath them. Remove these three screws. Remove the plastic bezel under the screen that is about an 1" thick by the width of the computer. Right under the screen mount. It is tricky, but you have to pop it out. Then you can flip the keyboard out (might have to remove a couple of screws - I forget, but it is obvious) and up towards the front resting upside down. Under the keyboard are the wifi and bluetooth modules.

    My Macbook Pro 2.16 15" has a AR5006EX in it, so I'm sure your AR5006 will be compatible just as long as we get it powered up. The 802.11n variants need THREE antennas from what I understand, and the Fujitsu has only two antenna's built in. I've looked in there and when I was swapping, there was only two antenna cables.
  7. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    What needs/can be done to get this to work using the older kernel 8.4. I have some hardware on my tabletpc which may not work if I upgrade to the more recent kernel. I have a: Codec: SigmaTel STAC9228 Address: 0 Vendor Id: 0x83847616 And, I've tried manually editing in the device/vendor id's into AppleHDA.kext and using the configs for sigmatel made by your patcher (which I swear makes sound if I click on the the little graphic that pops up) but no sound devices show up after boot. Obviously, just using your patcher installs a kernel 8.8 AppleHDA which doesn't like being run under the 8.4 kernel. Is there some simple/moderatel way to get this working under the older kernel? Thanks

    Not on T4210 (yet!). The issue is the Cardbus controller isn't even getting enumerated. On my old T4010, yes, the PC Card slot did work.
  9. Fujitsu T-421X TabletPC

    The Fujitsu tablets either came with the Intel 3945ABG or Atheros AR5006EG. Mine had the Intel which I knew had no support in OSX so I bought a Dell Truemobile 1390 card (reported to work by many here - based on broadcom chipset and PCI-E) and swapped it for the Intel card (easy to do, took >5 minutes). I think if you don't have Smart problems and memtest is OK that your tablet is bad. My first tablet, the T4010 which I had fully working with sound, tablet, wifi (through a PC card) was great. But then one day it wouldn't turn on, nothing wierd, just wouldn't turn on. It was about a month out of warranty and they wanted around $800 to replace the motherboad and told them forget it. I sent it to a electronics component level repair house and they found the broblem with the Northbridge but couldn't locate any spares so it was stripped of some parts and junked. I bought the T4210 new on ebay from Fujitsu for around $1200 and it is much faster AND most importantly has a 3 YEAR warranty! I've owned many many laptops (mostly Apple) and I have never had one completely die on me. Send yours in while you still have a warranty. I've heard Fujitsu warranty service is top notch.

    ioreg -lx from T4210 tablet enclosed. Please note "ethernet" sections. One, the Yukon powers up and is a functioning ethernet port. The other vendor $14e4 is a dell truemobile 1390 broadcom based wifi card is not working (and appears powered down). Anyone else see the same thing about the wifi card, or have any other analysis? t4210_ioreg.txt

    Thanks Scott for your continued work on Tabletmagic. As you know I stripped out some of the personal information from my driver that was included from Tabletmagic. Since I only wanted to use some of the serial protocol error messages I made sure the extraneous information was removed. I wish I had based my work mostly on Tabletmagic that way I could email you the code and you get immediately add support for the Fujitsu tablets. My hack is only meant for those to use in the mean time, and is only available here. Feel free to add this FINAL message to your dossier. Since there is workable pen support (and has been for the last year for me), I am turning my attention 100% to getting the PCI express busses operational so that WIFI will work. I trust Tabletmagic does not have any wireless driver potential so I see we won't be talking much anymore. Please let us know when your Tabletmagic supports the Fujitsu (and other) Tablet PC's. All the best, Khashoggi

    check your ram. its the simplest to troubleshoot. also try a live linux distro that boots completely off cd to isolate Hard drive wierdness. Have you tried running memtest to check your ram, or just put some alternative sodimms in.

It is still a hunch, and I don't see conclusive proof yet...

    On to wireless... T4210 (I would imagine the T4215's are very similar in layout minus the Core2Duo instead of CoreDuo) Gathering information from the busses using windoze: Wireless card (dell 1390 PCI-E) shows memory range: PCI5,DEV0,FUN0 $DBFFC000 - DBFFFFFF ethernet (Marvell/Yukon 88E8055 PCI-E) PCI2,DEV0,FUN0 $F0000000 - F0003FFF o2 micro OZ711MP1/MS1 memory cardbus controller PCI8,DEV3,FUN0 $FEBFF000 - FEBFFFFF " $FEBFE000 - FEBFEFFF " $D0000000 - D3FFFFFF o2 micro OZ711MP1/MS1 memory cardbus controller PCI8,DEV3,FUN1 $FEBFD000 - FEBFDFFF " $FEBFC000 - FEBFCFFF " $CC000000 - CFFFFFFF 02 micro integrated MMC/SD controller PCI8,DEV3,FUN2 $F0201000 - F02010FF 02 micro integrated MS/SM/xD controller PCI8,DEV3,FUN3 $F0200000 - F0200FFF Intel 82801 PCI Bridge-2448 PCI0,DEV30,FUN0 Intel 82801G (ICH7 Family) PCI Express root port 27d0 PCI0,DEV28,FUN0 $F0000000 - F00FFFFF Intel 82801G (ICH7 Family) PCI Express root port 27d2 PCI0,DEV28,FUN1 $F4000000 - F7FFFFFF Intel 82801G (ICH7 Family) PCI Express root port 27d4 PCI0,DEV28,FUN2 $D8000000 - D8FFFFFF $D4000000 - D7FFFFFF so my prelimary analysis is: We know that the ethernet works and its bus is powered up, which is PCI bus #2 according to above with memory range for the controller at $F0000000 - F003FFF and all the stuff that doesn't work is the wireless cards, the 02 micro cardbus slot, and the 02 MMC/SD card reader which all use PCI bus #5 or #8 with several memory ranges. Since the Ethernet works, and its memory range falls within the "Intel 82801G (ICH7 Family) PCI Express root port 27d0" that means that particular PCI express port is powered up and operational. I will review the ioreg output when in OSX but I seem to remember that the other two ports 27d2 and 27d4 were not powered up and that the device tree showed the wireless, cardbus controller, and SD card readers as being underneath them. I am going to boot my Macbook Pro into bootcamp windoze and check the device manager output there and compare to see if their are any bus similiarities. My theory is that the busses that interface with the wireless and other non-working systems on the T4210 are not being powered up/enumerated and therefore whatever is connected to those busses is never seen by the OS. There may be someway to tweak the existing OSX kexts responsible for bus enumeration to look at these particular busses (maybe even swap which one it looks at if it is limited to one - for example knock off the ethernet in favor of the wireless - I would make that trade). If anyone has something to add or wishes to help figure this out, please I welcome you to help with the mystery and lets get our wireless working. Tablet's are no fun with wires sticking out of them to use internet. Oh, and bluetooth through my phone is too much of a blast to the past at ISDN speeds...
