  1. Toshiba Built-in Bluetooth Working!

    Does work on my Toshiba Satellite Pro A100-830 No VALD/VALZ entries show up in logs.
  2. Toshiba Laptop Success Stories?

    Here's details of my MacInToshIBA Satellite Pro A100-830 PSAACE 00W002EN with Intel® 945PM Express Chipset Intel Centrino Duo T7200 2 Ghz (detected as 1 CPU 2 cores at 1.99 Ghz) (note: there are massive hardware differences between different A100 models) Install method: I used the Kalyway 10.5.1 DVD I then updated using the Kalyway 10.5.2 combo update with the modbin 9.2 kernel (I tried vanilla 9.2 but it caused endless reboot cycle) Warning: I stupidly installed the Leopard Graphics Update 1.0 after updating to 10.5.2 and it caused black screen boots with no safe mode possible. Had to fix by booting to the install disk, going to terminal and removing all graphics related kexts. Best avoid the update on this machine! Video : 15.4" TFT Display 1280 x 800 with ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 256 MB (Device ID: 0x71c5) I used the ATIMobileX1600Pack and Driver ATI Mobility X1600 Toshi_A100. It now works fine with changeable resolutions etc. It was rock solid in safe mode but on a normal boot I was experiencing random freezing. I've now solved this following instructions found here http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...3074&st=180 and http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=43891 Audio: Intel High Definition Audio (ID: 0x1179FF10) I got this working using the AzaliaAudio.pkg and it's fine. I have not tested Audio In and believe it is probably not working. Wireless (Intel 3945ABG). This is not yet working but it looks like there are promising drivers under active development so fingers crossed. See latest news in http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...4072&st=280 Ethernet (Intel Pro/100 82557 chipset). I am pretty sure I had it working 100% under 10.5.1 using a tweak to the IONetworkingFamily.kext however at some point after I installed 10.5.2 I found it was saying no connection found although it was working fine in safe mode. In the end I found I needed to use -f boot flag to make it work correctly again. See http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry523297 PCMCIA / PC Card not working out of the box but is now recognized and working thanks to Chun-Nan rev8 http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=81036 USB is working fine as far as I can tell using a pen drive to do my tests. Didn't need to fix anything. Firewire was fine initially (had it networked) but now it seems to stopped - perhaps since I got the pcmcia working. Firewire networking is showing no connection when I know there is but the system.log shows the the firewire device is being detected. I need to do more tests. Currently sleep / hibernate appears not working but I need to do more tests. I install a new power management bundle from http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=80425 and that gave me some progress. There is no a battery meter but it's calculated time is ridiculous. The computer will go into sleep (sleep from power button) but will not wake up and fails to reboot on first attempt. Progress of sorts I guess. Bluetooth is not working even after using kexts from http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;hl=bluetooth Keyboard. I tried a couple of things to get the keyboard remapped to the correct (UK) layout - Ukelele and the microsoft keyboard layouts. Neither would let me map the key between the left shift and the Z key. This means I have no backslash and no bar direct from the keyboard at present. Memory card reader not tested yet. My system is identified by the OS as the following... Model: Mac Pro, BootROM Hack.int.0sh, 2 processors, Intel Core 2 Duo, 1.99 GHz, 1 GB Graphics: kHW_ATIr520Item, ATY,RadeonX1600, spdisplays_pcie_device, 256 MB Memory Module: Bank 0/M1, 1 GB, DDR SDRAM, 667 MHz Network Service: Ethernet, Ethernet, en0 Serial ATA Device: TOSHIBA MK1234GSX, 111.79 GB Parallel ATA Device: MAT{censored}ADVD-RAM UJ-841S, 4.38 GB xbench score 96.34 Geekbench Score 2573 Operating System Mac OS X 10.5.2 (Build 9C31) Processor Intel® Core2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz Memory 1.00 GB 667 MHz DDR SDRAM
  3. Accidentally broke my system

    Boot from your install disk, go to terminal and remove all graphics card related kexts from /Library/System/Extensions eg. rm -F ATI*.kext rm -F NVI*.kext rm -F GeF*.kext then fix permission using diskutility then reboot. this should get you past the black screen and to a low res desktop. you can now reinstall your working kexts (you did backup right?) and everything will be back to normal.
