  1. Anyone installed DP4?

    You should read the instructions in ALC885_889a_Lion archive, you need to replace some xml files. Did you do that step? Actually I placed ALC885_889a.kext in /E/E If you get problems with kext permission just use Kext Wizard from over here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=253395 copy layout885.xml and Platforms.xml to /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/ Command: sudo cp /location/layout885.xml /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/ sudu cp /location/Platforms.xml /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/ sudo cp -R /location/ALC885_889a.kext /System/Library/Extensions sudo chown -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions/ALC885_889a.kext sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/ALC885_889a.kext Clear cache: (if not correct, please tell me.) sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/* restart May need to copy Platform.xml after each update.
  2. Anyone installed DP4?

    I used this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=140941 Look for HDEF Gigabyte patcher and Lion Kexts (ALC885_889a_Lion)
  3. I did a fresh install, sleep is not working, it shuts down the monitor, fans still running. The only way to get out of this is to press reset button. After reset, the CMOS is reseted. With the patch manual sleep works but autosleep does not.

    you could use these Terminal commands for show and hide files in Mac Os X. Show: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE killall Finder Hide: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE killall Finder Or you could use this nice app. ShowHiddenFiles.zip
  5. Anyone installed DP4?

    Yes, I don't know how that got deleted, I wrote that last night, maybe I was sleepy.
  6. Anyone installed DP4?

    I have successful results. It boots from USB, all I had to do is replace all the ATI kexts from Base System with older ones from DP3. No more white background with beach ball. Let's see what happens. Here is a little guide on how I got it working: 1. Get the dmg from the usual sources. 2. Mount the dmg 3. Show all hidden files in Finder (this can be done with an app, search on google "show files" or here on insanelymac) 4. Mount BaseSystem 5. Go to Disk Utility 6. Partition your 8 gb USB drive with GPT partition table, one partition 7. Restore BaseSystem.dmg on your USB drive 8. Copy mach_kernel from Lion DMG to root of USB 9. Copy from the parent dmg the Packages folder over USB drive /System/Installation/ (you should delete the alias/shortcut there) 10. Install to your USB drive Chameleon, your working Extra folder and dsdt.aml file 12. Install FakeSMC in USB drive /System/Library/Extensions (using Kext Wizard) 13. Reboot and Install wait for the installer to finish 14. Boot in Snow Leopard and install Chameleon, the Extra folder and dsdt.aml to your Lion partition 15. Boot in Lion and enjoy. I was inspired by this method: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=256729 and credits go to MaLd0n Please note that I used a spare hard drive partitioned with GPT. The sistem works except there are some glitches when going to GUI, there are sound issues with ALC889a and sleep does not work at all and also resets CMOS. Otherwise the system feels more solid and it is more polished. With this build Apple droped the intro video, they also droped the legacy wallpapers. Hope you will find this usefull, Cheers
  7. Mac OS X Lion (Developer Preview) Released

    It does not include XCode in the DMG and also some other packages.
  8. Anyone installed DP4?

    I managed to boot it successfully from USB. But when the UI loads I get a white background and spinning beach ball. I will try later with older BaseSystem image.

    What I meant to say is that I would do the diff file by myself if I would know how to do it (step by step). You already done it and that might speed up the things for me. Tell me if I am wrong. First I should try to integrate ATIResolution in the source and then pull the diff file from the source using the "diff" program. Right?

    Ok Azimutz, I will bug you from time to time. I will do it myself if I would know how, I am a php guy and I have some experience doing programming. Maybe if you could give me some guidelines on how to do it I might pull it off.

    Hey Azimutz, it would be cool to add autoresolution to the modules. Do you want me to do some more testing?

    Also I want to add, that in Lion for my card there is no need for GraphicsEnabler. I just tried without it enabled and it worked fine. The issue is that Lion thinks that I have a second VGA monitor mounted. This happen with the latest update.

    The Xcode 3 version works grate. It boots both Snow Leopard and Lion
  14. Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

    No luck, the problem is still there. Also it gives CST error... My CPU runs hot. This is happening since I updated to the latest build.
  15. Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

    Ok, I did the test. In Os X Lion GraphicsEnabler works grate but when I try to boot Snow Leopard I get: Memory allocation error: Addr=0xdeadbeef, Size=0x0, File=ati.c, Line=1224 This is a non recoverable error: System HALTED!!!
