  1. Hi, I used the guide above. Followed it step by step. When installing OSX86 make sure that you use the Voodoo kernel and you should be good. I am guesssing most distros should be ok as long as it contains the Voodoo kernel and you make the installation as clean as possible. And then install kext from the post above. Kjell
  2. Lenovo X300 WWAN

    Update. I just got the builtin WWAN card working. The Sierra MC 8775. First off, download the following package: http://www.sierrawireless.com/en/sitecore/...er_Generic.ashx Install and restart. Now we need to edit two kext files in order to get the card recognized. File 1: /system/library/extensions/SierraFSRSupport.kext - Rightclick the file and choose "Show package contents" - Copy the info.plist file to your desktop - Open it using textedit - Locate: <key>SierraDeviceMC8775</key> - Now change <integer>26642</integer> to <integer>26643</integer> - Save the file and copy it back to the conents folder of the SierraFSRSupport.kext package. File 2: /system/library/extensions/SierraDIPSupport.kext - Rightclick the file and choose "Show package contents" - Copy the info.plist file to your desktop - Open it using textedit - Locate: <<integer>26642</integer> - Now change <integer>26642</integer> to <integer>26643</integer> - Save the file and copy it back to the conents folder of the SierraDIPSupport.kext package. Finally run Kextutility to clear cache. Restart Done ! Open system prefrences and you will be prompted with a new network interface :-) You can configure the card nativly or using the Telstra software. I am running OS X 10.6.2
  3. Hi, Thanx for the really good kexts :-) This really saved my day ! I now have my X300 running 10.6.3 with full sleep, speedstep and working audio. Wlan switched to a broadcom 4312 chip that works AWSOME ! the speed is slamming fast man ! I had a problem with crackling sound after wake from sleep, but I got my hands on a file called VOODOOHDACrackleFix (its a pkg file), after this the sound is working after wake from sleep. I do not remember where I got the file but if someone needs it just PM me and I can send it to you. Once again thanx for all the great help in this thread. btw, the x300 is a waaaaay better OS X machine than it is a windows machine hehe ! Kjell
  4. The Broadcom 43xx (This is based on the DW 1395 card) wlan cards will be regognized as an Airportcard in OS X. Trouble is that people with IBM Thinkpad T60 can not replace the wlan card with a 3rd party one. Doing so will cause the bios to promt a 1802 unrecoginzed hardware installed ... error message. No worries There is a bios update that will take care of this for you. After hours of searching and reading about possible workarounds I finally found one that works. The Lenovo SLIC2 NOWHITELIST firmware upgrade. Download the attached firmware and run the winphlash.exe and follow the instructions (This has to be done in windows!). The computer will reboot and you should be good to install your new wlan card and boot without the 1802 error. (PS! I do not take any resposebility for your bios upgrades !! do it at your own risk!) Now that you have booted into OS X you need to edit the following file to make your Broadcom card beeing recognized as an Airport card. Edit this file to add device id for your DW 1395:- /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext/Contents/Info.plist This is what you need to add because it is not listed in original kext:- <string>pci14e4,4315</string> Example content of the file:- CODE <dict> <key>Broadcom 802.11 PCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AirPortBrcm43xx</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AirPort_Brcm43xx</string> <key>IOMatchCategory</key> <string>IODefaultMatchCategory</string> <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>pci106b,4e</string> <string>pci14e4,4311</string> <string>pci14e4,4312</string> <string>pci14e4,4313</string> <string>pci14e4,4315</string> <string>pci14e4,4318</string> <string>pci14e4,4319</string> <string>pci14e4,431a</string> <string>pci14e4,4320</string> <string>pci14e4,4324</string> <string>pci14e4,4325</string> <string>pci14e4,4328</string> <string>pci14e4,432b</string> <string>pci14e4,432c</string> <string>pci14e4,432d</string> </array> Now use OSX86TOOLS to repair premissions. Reboot and you should have a working Airport card. Hope this will help you .. Lenovo_T60_79uj30us_TC_5M_SLIC21_NO_WHITELIST.part1.rar Lenovo_T60_79uj30us_TC_5M_SLIC21_NO_WHITELIST.part2.rar
  5. Try to Touch extentions folder using OSX86 Tools ...... Might do the trick
  6. Thanx ! I finally made this work on my IBM Lenovo T60 with Ati X1400 Mobility. I tried most combinations without any luck, then I used the 10/12 10.5 with Atom support witch gave me native res without QE. But when adding my vendor ID to the atiradeonx1000.kext the boot screen just froze. So here is what I did to resolve it. 1: Boot into safe mode. 2. Remove Radeonhd.kext 3. Remove Atiradeonx1000.kext 4. Repair disk from disk utils. 5. Reboot. (into regular mode) 6. Install your original atiradeonx1000.kext and repair disk using disk utils. (or use mine) 7. Reboot. 8. Install the Radeonhd.kext and repair disk using disk util. 9. Reboot. You should now have 1680X1050 res. (or your native res. depending on your card) with QE. You will still need to use mouse locator as the mouse tearing problem is still there ... I have attached my kexts so feel free to try them out and see if they work for you. I have included my EDID as well, but I don not know if this defers from computer to computer .... so you might have to make your own and then edit the radeonhd.kext replacing the EDID. There is a PDF included that describes how to do this. Edit: Removing the atireadon2000.kext seems to solve the problem that the card does not show as Ati radeon hd mobility :-) x1400_osx_driver_pack.zip
  7. X1400 Quartz enabled?

    Download and install leopardgraphicsupdate:http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/leopardgraphicsupdate10.html Now modify the kext agian. (Do not forget to repair presmissions before rebooting!)
