  1. Lenovo Thinkpad x220 - 10.9.5 pack and info

    Did you flash the modified BIOS?
  2. Lenovo Thinkpad x220 - 10.9.5 pack and info

    The only thing I can't get working is audio on my X220T/Yosemite. Everything else works great, thanks for the guide/info. Figured it out, sort of. Had to resort to using an old, patched AppleHDA. This one worked for me: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285678-lenovo-thinkpad-t420-with-uefi-only/page-5?do=findComment&comment=1893526 Couldn't get Clover patching to work properly...
  3. ATI 4850 in SL works!

    Yep works fine here with a VGA FW900 and DVI AL2216W.
  4. Finally GA-P35-DS3L REV:2.0 Success

    I'm having trouble getting audio. Did you have to manually edit your DSDT? I used the patcher in Windows and added HDEF with no results...
  5. Yeah, the error was just "No installer packages can be found for this disk" when I try to use Disk Utility to repair permissions. Now that I re-installed BSD.pkg, it will do a really quick scan and not fix anything, so I'm thinking it only indexed that one package. I think it's missing the receipts.
  6. Thanks Blackosx, it worked GREAT on my GA-EP35-DS3L. Though, it seems like the catalog (for Disk Utility: "No installer packages can be found for this disk") is broken since I installed it from Leopard. Tried using a 16GB flash drive, but I hadn't figured out how to get my 4850 working at the time. Turns out GFX EFI string was a key for that. Someone said to reinstall BSD.pkg for the catalog, but I don't think it worked correctly. Oh, and I had to use Chameleon on a USB flash drive because it kept booting to my old Leopard EFI partition even when I set the new Cham as active (fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 then flag 3).
  7. How to: ATI 4850 working on SL

    I can also confirm that this works (GFX EFI strings plus EVOenabler, ATINDRV/ATIRNDRV). Thanks for the advice!
  8. is this a good hackingtosh

    I thought you said you had a 4870 working in 10.5.5. Why would you want to downgrade to integrated graphics?
  9. Logitech QuickCam PRO 9000

    Any UVC (USB Video Class) device should work in OS X (Tiger 10.4.9 or higher) without any additional drivers. Starting on Monday (April 21st), the QuickCam Pro 9000 will only be $45.77 after rebate at Buy.com in case anyone is interested. If you sign up for Google Checkout (free), it'll take another $10 off. Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 5% off coupon List of other compatible webcams Logitech constantly updates the model of their products which may make a webcam no longer work in OS X (since they don't officially support it).
  10. Remote Control in Leo

    The reason it probably works is because it's all hardware-based. The multimedia keys on the keyboard work the same as those on USB keyboards (without needing drivers). I don't know if there's any way to make the other remote functions work. Maybe remap the menu (CMD+Esc) to whatever the remote sends. This is assuming it's not using Apple's IR kext.
  11. Remote Control in Leo

    I got my Keyspan remote today and it works as advertised. Something to note is that the volume +/- is just up arrow/down arrow, so it won't control volume outside of Front Row like a regular multimedia keyboard would. Menu/sleep/eject all work, and mute works outside of Front Row. Otherwise, the directions are just arrow keys, and play/pause is just space. It will also wake the computer from sleep.
  12. Remote Control in Leo

    It seems like the possibility of using a real Apple IRDA board is unlikely. I just bought one of those Keyspan remotes for $13 on eBay. The description blurb says it's used, but the body/typed description says new. There are two left (Keyspan RF Remote Front Row Control For Mac ER-RF1 New). Seems like a good price outside of clearance deals, since I remember this design Keyspan remote from ages ago.
  13. DVD multisession

    Multisession DVDs are possible, but it's not as good as on a PC. I asked a Mac genius (friend) about this, and he responded, "when would you ever need to do that?". For me, frequently so as to save DVDs... Try Dragon Burn or BurnAgain if it's that important to you. I don't remember Toast supporting multisession DVDs...?
  14. Works for me pretty well with zAcceptThreshold at 135. Yeah, it's basically one-finger scroll, and it kills dragging windows for me (have to use physical left-click)... I'm not sure whether I'll stick with it or go back to the old-fashioned spacebar/shift+spacebar scrolling. Thanks for the great work!
  15. LCD Brightness

    "Only CRT displays use more energy to display brighter things. For everything else, it is completely false that a black display uses less energy than a white page. The backlight on an LCD is on for the entire LCD regardless of what is being shown. The black pixels are only black because the LCD blocks out light. Same with projectors, etc."
