    No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

    I know that others have already mentioned this but you can see from the attached screen cap that there is no IGPU recognized on this Vaio laptop and it still has the wake issue.

    So do we know how the old Mac Pros with physical AMD PCI-e cards handle power management on 10.11? I actually have an oMP running 10.10 with an AMD Radeon 6870. Problem is it's an old 1,1 machine so I have to use a modified boot.efi to get around the 32-bit firmware problem which is a bit of a pain otherwise I'd just put 10.11 on it just to see what it does.

    I didn't necessarily expect it to be there. Was just thinking that if my machine only has an AMD discrete GPU, this kext should be loaded. The fact that it isn't loaded validates your theory that this kext is necessary for wake to work properly for non-IGPU systems.

    It's interesting that you say this because I don't see any presence of an IGPU in my IOReg. I remember when I first started playing with getting 10.9 installed on this VAIO and people kept saying that there was no way to activate the IGPU on these systems. Sony locked these machines down fairly well and there's practically no settings in the BIOS. I recall somebody else trying to put a hacked BIOS on the machine in hopes of enabling the IGPU without any success. So when I started this project, I focused on getting the Radeon 7650m recognized which I was able to do after a few weeks. Just ran kextstat from my system and do not see AppleMGPUPowerControl.kext loaded What I found interesting on my system is that AppleIntelFramebufferCapri is loaded. Is this normal on a system with only a discrete GPU? com.apple.driver.AppleIntelFramebufferCapri (10.1.0) F51689B9-35FE-3D63-900F-D422203239D4 <76 75 74 12 11 7 6 5 4 3 1> I would only expect to see the AMD Framebuffer loaded as it shown below. 78 2 0xffffff7f8255d000 0x133000 0x133000 com.apple.kext.AMDSupport (1.3.8) 0AFE07E5-04A2-337B-B8C0-1DDD4762C8C6 <75 74 12 11 7 5 4 3 1> 79 0 0xffffff7f82bf4000 0x5f6000 0x5f6000 com.apple.kext.AMD6000Controller (1.3.8) D7C7BFBC-AA0F-3C96-BEC3-376C732002E5 <78 74 12 11 5 4 3 1> 102 0 0xffffff7f82690000 0x45c000 0x45c000 com.apple.AMDRadeonX3000 (1.3.8) CB3CE8B0-A439-3290-A661-401AAB9E4FBE <76 74 12 7 5 4 3 1> 109 0 0xffffff7f82bbf000 0x22000 0x22000 com.apple.kext.AMDFramebuffer (1.3.8) B95281B7-E056-3C9A-AD0A-43165EC111DF <78 74 12 11 7 5 4 3 1>

    No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

    Hi guys. I have a Sony Vaio E Series SVE1712BCXB laptop with a AMD Radeon 7650M video card. The 7650M is basically a rebranded AMD 6000 series GPU. OpenGL viewer shows the chip as a Radeon Thames Pro Prototype (attached). I'm experiencing similar issues with waking from sleep under 10.11 that I was not experiencing under 10.9. I'm using the same modified Pondweed frame buffer, loading the Vbios, injecting EDID, and injecting ATI in Clover config.plist on 10.11 that I was using in 10.9 -- no changes whatsoever. I am using MacBookPro9,2 SMBIOS since I have an Intel Core i5 3210M (Ivy Bridge) CPU. I get proper video on initial boot of 10.11 and the GPU appears to be recognized the same way it was on 10.9. However when I put the machine to sleep and attempt to wake up, I get a black screen both on the built-in laptop display and also no output on HDMI. When this happens I cannot VNC to the machine but can SSH to it, so the network and OS is responsive. I believe I'm seeing similar events in the system.log as others. I've attached the full log from the time I put the system to sleep, to wakeup attempt, and finally after the system times out and reboots itself.

    New AppleHDA Patcher

    Great work on this app guys!!! I actually just used it to generate a patched AppleHDA.kext using based on Realtek ALC269VC laptop profile. I'm now able to get sound out of my Sony Vaio E Series SVE1712BCXB Laptop on both internal speakers and 1/8 output. Question: My built-in mic is not working. I had actually tried both the ALC269VC and ALC269VC2 profiles. Neither of them activate the mic. In fact the VC2 profile did not output sound or activate the mic. Is there any way I can correct this? It was working under VoodooHDA. Codec dump from Linux is attached. Thanks guys! codec_dump.txt
  7. Hi Guys I've been struggling with some instabilities with my SONY VAIO E Series SVE1712BCXB in both 10.9 and now 10.11 which I'm wondering if they are power management related. The instabilities present themselves in one of two ways: 1.) Sometimes I'll get a kernel panic immediately after Clover attempts to boot the OS (see attached capture of kp) or 2.) The OS will fully boot to a desktop and when I start working as normal (launch browser, apps, etc), the machine will suddenly it will power cycle itself -- usually within a minute or two of the bootup. Typically when either scenario happens, a restart of the system will clear it up and the system will be rock solid from that point forward for extended periods of usage even under more stressful activity. This machine has an Intel Core i5 3210M 2.5 GHz CPU which uses the Ivy Bridge architecture. As such, I'm using the MacBook Pro 9,2 SMBios which I believe is the closest match for this processor. In my first attempt to get power management working, I tried to use Pike's script, ssdtPRgen.sh -p 'i5-3210M' to generate the SSDT.aml but have not had any luck using the output with Clover. I get a total of 4 .aml files from the script: SSDT.aml, SSDT-1.aml, SSDT-2.aml, SSDT-3.aml. When I put the SSDT.aml or any combination of these files in Clover's ACPI directory, I get a black screen at boot. I had similar issues using this method with 10.9. Then I found out about the -xcpm argument and gave it a try since it's supposed to be compatible with Ivy Bridge CPUs. When xcpm is enabled in Clover, the machine definitely manages the CPU better than without it. Speedstep and turbo boost work well according to Intel Power Gadget app. However I'm wondering if xcpm is causing these occasional instabilities. In particular I was curious if this could be related to the locked MSR 0xE2 register that is known to cause issues with xcpm. Is there any way that I can isolate if this is the cause or am I possibly going down the wrong path thinking this is power management related at all? I had these same instabilities with 10.9 and was using xcpm on there as well as it was the only way I could get any power management functional. How are you guys handling power management on Ivy Bridge Vaios? Thx in advance

    Airport - PCIe Half Mini

    Hi, I am using an Atheros AR9287 with 10.11.1. I'm not able to get the device recognized by patching airportatheros40.kext using clover's patching feature. I am able to get it recognized by using toledaARPT.kext. Any idea why one method would work over the other? In clover I'm finding pci168c,2a in AirPortAtheros40.kext info.plist and replacing with pci168c,2e. Thanks
  9. I'm having difficulty getting 10.11.1 installed on my Sony Vaio SVE1712. I had 10.9.5 running on a separate SSD without issue on this same system but have run into the following panic TLB invalidation IPI timeout: CPU(s) failed to respond to interrupts, after the first reboot after the initial install of 10.11.1. This is a dual core i5 3210M Ivy Bridge based machine. I'm using XCPM for power management as I also did in 10.9.5 but it does not appear to make a difference if I turn it off in the Clover bootloader. I'm not using custom dsdt or ssdts at the moment because I never required them under Mavericks. The only kexts that I'm injecting is fakesmc and voodoops2controller. I'm using Macbook Pro 9,2 for SMBIOS which seems to match the 3210M Ivy Bridge architecture the closest. Any ideas on what I might be able to do to get this all the way through the install? Aside from playing with XCPM (toggling on/off), I also tried toggling AsusAICPUPM and KernelPm without any success. Interestingly it seems if I turn off XCPM I don't get the panic but just sits at the apple logo and never boots to the second part of the installation. Thx Josh

    Hi Slice -- Any thoughts on this? Thx

    Hi Slice, I tried both OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 and OsxAptioFixDrv-64 without any success. If I replace the files in EFI>Boot with the ones from r2721, I can boot properly. Is there something different with BOOTIA32/BOOTX64 files in the newer versions of Clover that would be causing my boot up problem? If I used r2721's boot files, would they be able to boot Yosemite?

    Hi Slice. Debug log is attached. When it tries to boot, I see the apple logo briefly like it's going boot but then it restarts. Thanks but I'm not using the Other or the 10.10 folder. Only kexts I have are in the 10.9 folder. debug.log.zip

    Clover General discussion

    Trying to upgrade Clover from r2721 to r3021 in preparation for Yosemite upgrade. The machine will not boot from r3021 even though the config.plist did not change. When I attempt to boot Mavericks, the machine immediately restarts itself. I tried booting without cache/kext injection and safe mode without success. No error message is presented and verbose switch does not show anything. Any reason why a newer version of Clover will not boot my 10.9.5 machine? Thanks in advance.
  14. Thanks that is what I ended up doing. The reason why it didn't work initially from Clover is I had a bad checksum. Once I updated the checksum, injected worked correctly via Clover.
  15. I'm currently running a vanilla 10.9.3 build with Clover bootloader on a Sony Vaio Laptop SVE1712bcxb with the following specs: Core i5 3210M Radeon 7650M 256GB OCZ SSD 6GB RAM Full specs here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=SVE1712BCXB&template_id=1&region_id=1&tab=manuals# I'm trying to isolate a problem where machine will occasionally reboot itself without warning within 5 minutes of bootup/login. Basically I can login to the machine, reach a desktop and start working as normal (launch browser, apps, etc) and then suddenly it will power cycle itself. It seems to occur more often if I execute a "Restart" from the Apple menu rather than doing a complete shutdown and then powering it back on. I do not think it's thermal or hardware related as the machine will run perfectly fine most of the time. In fact if the machine doesn't reboot within the first 5 minutes of login, it's rock solid even after putting to sleep/waking multiple times. The CPU temperatures are well within spec according to iStat Pro. The behavior will sometimes occur a few times consecutively and then stop with a "clean" boot. I check the console logs and nothing really stands out in terms of errors or failures leading up to these reboots. I see two messages that might be relevant: locationd was started after an unclean shutdown kernel[0]: Previous Shutdown Cause: 3 It appears that the shutdown code is always "3" regardless of if I do a restart or shutdown. It doesn't change even in the cases where the reboots occur. When the reboots occur, the machine goes straight to a black screen like it was power cycled -- no kernal panic message displayed on screen on in the logs. On my real Mac (Mac Pro 1,1), the shutdown cause is always 0 so I'm not certain if "3" is to be cause for concern. Any ideas on what might be causing this issue? Thx Josh
