  1. Sony Vaio VPCF115FM Discussion: DSDT Injection

    I had it working with lion when it was at 10.7 once i updated i never got it to work. it keeps having a conflict with the graphics i believe and would never boot.. have to boot with some legacy kexts in the extra folder but that only works on the 10.7

    AHAAA!! thank you OoTLink!! i was reffering to your post not frank, i got a little confused there.. i did try the -v and i think it stopped after it said loading pci devices or something, ive messed with it so much that i ended up reinstalling and now i have 10.6.8 running well thanks to thenawcom kexts. will do some tests and then try lion.

    Frank it also didnt work too well for me. I did everything as u said and all i get is a frozen screen when the apple logo comes up, Maybe im doing somethign wrong.. tried loading lion and i get the same thing. must be something wrong with the bootloader settings.. i will try figure it out again later, would LOVE to get this to work

    Well i'm glad to hear lion actually works! Your model is diferent from mine, but i know the 4965agn is one of the most unsupported wifi cards for osx! I know this caus my older vaio had it and i just swapped it out.. My f11 uses atheros wifi Dont know why the hdmi wouldnt work! usually when there is a black internal screen it means the video card is detected and enabled but it just wont recognise the internal screen so the hdmi SHOULD work

    I am also secretly hoping lion will have some support, even tho i highly doubt I should try it myself, im just afraid of wasting another couple hours of my life lol

    i think you mean Ubuntu is barely anymore usable than snow not linux, caus ubuntu is linux I actually tried Zorin which is based on ubuntu and the major problem i have is the alps touchpad driver! the display seems pretty stable for me so far. all the effects work and it runs pretty quick. I did reinstall snow tho and tried the issue with the clock and mine is fine! i tested it in many ways and it keeps the time. thats when i use no extra kexts or dsdt or bootflags. Well except for using not turning on graphics enabler caus that will black out the internal screen but work perfectly on the external screen.. A part of me also wishes i got a diferent machine and jlvaio that program only detects if your hardware can support decoding under osx. I'm almost sure it does on our laptops but it will in no way enable internal display

    Oh yes you are right! it was the EDID and not the DSDT.. I will reinstall snow soon and check that clock issue.. what i had done was shrink my original windows partition and install snow on the new partition but since its basically unusable with the display issue i deleted it to regain the extra space.. If i do get that clock issue then ill really be giving up! ive never seen that happen to any other computer i hackintoshed Im really not a fan of windows at all! and the reason i dont wipe windows and rely on linux is that im not able to run the softwares i use the most But i much prefer Linux!! Always been a fan! Anyways ill try snow once again and see how it goes, i believe my processor is the 720qm also!

    Never noticed the clock running fast O_O i gotta check it again, everything works for me except the darn screen.. oh and the ethernet.. I tried ubuntu and it works great with the driver update for display which means that a special driver would be whats needed for snow.. but in linux before they had that driver they did use a dsdt trick to get the display working. I'm about to give up too.. i just keep hopin i will come on here oneday and some random person will post a magic sony f11 kext for display like that atheros wifi kext which works great!

    I'm guessing it detects 2 soundcards caus the HDMI is suppose to be a seperate audio device? I will test it out today and see what happens. unfortunately i dont have an hdmi monitor to test audio out Ok just tested it and i see 4 hdmi digital out.. guess thats what needs to be fixed with config. ill try that and report

    I tried the new bios.. same old story I also tried those SNC kext and no luck.. Still trying other options, i'm almost certain theres a solution
  11. Sony Vaio VPCF115FM Discussion: DSDT Injection

    Yep its the same results with me! I had tried to install snow on my older vaio and at first it would never work with the display, just got a fuzzy or no screen. but eventually i found out i had to set the resolution manually.. but with this laptop it is again diferent.. sony sure sux! i still hope that maybe its a simple trick were overlooking to fix the display, or to fool it into working like i did on my vgn-fz

    I would love to hear someone who got this to work! i tried literally everything and now im convinced that only DSDT can solve it!
