  1. I have not tried but read somewhere try holding the PRAM reset keys(CMD-ALT-P-R) and wait for 3 boings, firmware password should be gone.
  2. I aquired 2 MacPro A1186 one quad 2.66 12mb and one quad 3.0 16mb same brand of memory. Upon simultaneous power up for some reason the 2.66 reaches the boing sound quicker and boots to GUI in 32 sec while 3.0 boots in over a minute. Both have fresh install of Yosemite. Swapped the HD and still the same. I also reset SMC and PRAM on 3.0 and still the same. Geekbench 32bit multiprocessor 3.0 scored 56xx and 2.66 51xx which seems to be normal.
  3. Mac Pro Front Panel Audio

    Looking forward. I have not touched the front usb for a while as i was having issues. I have not tested on Lion hopefully it works better.
  4. Have you tried this? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...4840&st=320
  5. It all depends on what kind of NIC you have. You need proper Kext. You can start of by identifying your NIC and posting it so we can recommend Kext you need to use.
  6. Not sure what you mean. Depends on your NIC, if your NIC works OOB with LION then thats great other wise you need proper kext. The NIC ethernet connection does not need to be up and connected, as long as Lion recognizes and sees it in network thats all it matters. or did you mean after deleting the following com.apple.network.identification.plist NetworkInterfaces.plist Yes they are automatically detected and recreated, as long as you have proper kext.
  7. To those who are still having issues. After days of troubleshooting just wanted to share this so it can help others. To start I only had Wifi enabled "en0" and I have tried all the chameleon with iCloud fix, PCEFI and chimera and could not just login to iCloud keep getting "This Apple ID is valid but is not an iCloud account". Itunes login working, I decided to test Appstore and I was not able to login as well. In order to get Appstore working I needed to enable my built-in NIC. Read it in forum somewhere - credit to the shared this info. I got my built in NIC loaded and the deleted com.apple.network.identification.plist NetworkInterfaces.plist Rebooted and when Lion came up everything worked I was able to login to iTunes, Appstore and iCloud. So "en0" needs to be your built-in. Otherwise Appstore and iCloud won't work. I had the following initially but I removed it and I cloud still works. <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>PCIRootUID</key> <string>1</string>
  8. cp: writing `/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.1/0000:0c:00.0/ssb_sprom': Operation not supported Known issue.... http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 Go to terminal and check the linux kernel, type "uname -a" IMPORTANT: The 2.6.32 kernel will throw the following error message and refuse to write the SPROM: Just use a newer or older kernel. Ubuntu 9 uses this kernel. Since you probably are using a livecd just download a ubuntu 10 or 11.

  11. 10.6.6 released

    Does anybody know if this fixed the wireless issue with 10.6.5? I have WPC54G PCI card BCM4306 chipset. Works OOB from 10.6.0 -10.6.4, broke on 10.6.5. After a few installs I got 10.6.6 to install properly. Still no wireless I put the old 10.4 kernel back and wala.... Wireless is back, but now im having issues with USB So the wireless issue seem to point to the new kernel that was used in 10.6.5 and 10.6.6. Fixed the usb issue using this. http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=347
  12. 10.6.6 released

    From fresh install installed 10.6.5 and broke my wireless again upgraded to 10.6.6 to see if it will get fixed but 10.6.6 wont even finish installing. Keep getting "You need to restart your computer. Hold the power button.... etc..." somewhere before the end of install.
  13. 10.6.6 released

  15. I have the same issue, I reverted all my 10.6.4 kext but I still cant get my wifi back, im thinking its the kernel. Does anybody have a vanilla mach_kernel for 10.6.4. I forgot to backup mine.
