  1. Toshiba Built-in Bluetooth Working!

    Doesn't work for me too with on my P20-S203. I only have BT in ioreg also... Could you please share the code so that I can see what is wrong? Thanks Fernando
  2. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    Try copying the original one that come with 10.4.8 to its place and apply the patcher again. Then check if the extension gets loaded...
  3. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    Can you please check if the AppleHDA extension was loaded? Mine isn't and when I try to load it with: sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext it complains with this message: can't add kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext (not a bundle) (run kextload on this kext with -t for diagnostic output) adding the -t switch does nothing. I also have the same AsRock motherboard with ALC888.

    I wish we could help you more, other than simply testing things for you. Thanks np_

    Hi np_, Did as you instructed. Used the latest extensions and latest display utility. I manually added my EDID into IODisplayEDID (data field). Changed ProbeScore to 0 in IOGraphicsFamily. I capture two logs (one internal and one external) internal.txt external.txt Same old thing... Should I try wiithout NVidia drivers or NVidiaEFI?

    Hi np_! Here are my results: 1. LaptopDisplay + IONDRV + IOGraphicsFamily: System boots, LaptopPanelA is registered but no AppleBacklightDisplay ioreg: Birra_laptop_only.txt 2. LaptopDisplay + IONDRV + IOGraphicsFamily + Natit (test1) This adds simple Natit with no special keys for laptops System boots, LaptopPanelA is registered but no AppleBacklightDisplay ioreg: Birra_laptop_natit.txt 3. LaptopDisplay + IONDRV + IOGraphicsFamily + Natit (test2) This adds some special keys intended for laptops (backlight, built-in, etc) Same result as all others above ioreg: Birra_laptop_natit2.txt All this tests were done without NVidia drivers (also without ATI and Intel drivers). In all tests I only got 1024x768 resolution. The moment I add the NVidia drivers I have a black screen on laptop but full resolution on external display as it has always been (CI and QE ok). Now, one thing I noticed is that after adding the Vendor Folder and Display File the behaviour of the LCD is slightly different before going black. I can see it blinking the backlight twice instead of going to black at once, even with the older LaptopDisplay extension. Hope this helps in any way np_...

    And I am telling you to look at one of the files from an Apple display and see for yourself. How? well, the file I mentioned has the EDID inside and you can see that the EDID has the bytes in the order: 06 10!!! and not swapped like the product id. You need to open the file with the Property Editor application to see the encoded EDID data.

    Nope! np_ has it right. Just take a look inside some DisplayVendorID-610 files and look at the EDID information on some of Apple's monitors, like the DisplayProductID-9d02, for instance...

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe we can all stop posting EDID information from our latptops as np_ is writing a program that will translate EDID files into the required format. Then we can do it ourselves rather than overloading np_ with the job. The files posted so far should be enough for him to fine tune the application.

    np_ that seems to be my external monitor EDID information. One curious thing is that it is slightly different from the one I get by connecting through th DVI port. Through analog port I read 1e6d (vendor = LG) and productID=4e47 But from DVI port I read 1e6d and 4e48 (different product ID). Anyway, my real laptop EDID is this one: 00 ff ff ff ff ff ff 00 3a c4 00 09 00 00 00 00 2d 0c 01 03 80 20 14 00 ea a8 e0 99 57 4b 92 25 1c 50 54 00 00 00 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 95 25 a0 40 51 84 0c 30 40 20 33 00 42 c9 10 00 00 18 00 00 00 fc 00 4e 76 69 64 69 61 20 44 65 66 61 75 6c 00 00 00 fc 00 74 20 46 6c 61 74 20 50 61 6e 65 6c 00 00 00 00 fd 00 00 3c 1d 37 0a 00 00 20 20 20 20 20 00 00 43 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 The lcd is listed as device NVD0900 (in ACPI part of BIOS) and the model seems to be something like "Nvidia default panel" (from EDID information). My max display resolution is 1440x900 but I can't find that information on the EDID. I am willing to write the application to convert RAW EDID information into the file format you need. All I need to know is where to get the information and what to write By the way, what is the method to get the display resolution from a panel? Your macvidia driver gets that information and I always thougtht it could be taken from the EDID. However the application that I used to get my EDID (Riva tuner) isn't capable of determining that information from the EDID. Some applications even show 0x0 resolution based on what they get from the EDID. Perhaps the monitor timing information is blank in this case. At least there are 128 zeros at the end Thanks again np_

    Ok np_, I will try that later as I am finishing classifying some homework from my students Thank you once again! (and it is never enough)
  13. I've been through hell with that board only to discover that my 350W PSU wasn't up to the task. In my case I had kernel panics and random reboots. First I thought it was my cpu temperature. Later I thought it was my DVD burner since the system was quite stable with the old one. Sometimes the system wouldn't boot either (black screen) because the hard disk wouldn't start and kept making some clicking noises. This is just to tell you that the board is very temperamental and also very slow to boot (in my opinion). But don't forget to try with another PSU. Preferably higher power. Wish you luck

    Hi np_, here's my ioreg output. As I told you I had to remove the backlight-control key to have the machine boot. External display was attached but not correctly detected too. Sometimes it does sometimes it doesn't detect it Forget the attachment. You've got a pm with the url. Sorry.
  15. LaptopDisplay

    You should get your ioreg dumps with both the -l and -w0 flags... At least your machine didn't hang.
