  1. The webcam is suddenly working without any changes made by me... *shrug* I'm getting KP when I shutdown now, strangely, never happened prior, no changes there either. Working on that, brightness keyboard fix + card reader + usb3.
  2. Did your webcam use any kext? When I open Photo Booth, the working symbol shows in the middle and nothing shows up. I've attached my DSDT. You need to use MuIti Beast to apply the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement patch (under System) or you will still KP with this. You also need to add GenerateCStates=yes and GeneratePStates=yes for your boot.plist. My boot.plist also has Kernel Cache enabled for faster boot. I attached my boot.plist too. (NOTE! With cache on, /Extra/Extensions extensions won't be loaded on boot. Move them to /S/L/E) The DSDT fixes: - Brightness adjustment in System Prefs -> Display. Keyboard doesn't work, can't figure out why yet... - Sleep. Use SleepEnabler.kext with the DSDT to enable it. - USB. Don't need legacy USB anymore, suggest you remove the legacy USB kexts for better stability. - With AppleIntelCPUManagement patch, don't need NullCPUPowerManagement, EvOReboot, ElliotRTCLegacy. Remove 'em all. I'm currently running 10.8.2 with mach_kernel lapic-patched for 10.8.2. Download it here: http://www.osx86.net...ic_fix.zip.html For 10.8.2, you need the old 10.8.0 AppleACPIPlatform.kext or you will KP on boot. I also attached it to this post. =================== What left to fix: - Webcam - Card Reader - USB 3 AppleACPIPlatform.kext.zip DSDT.aml.zip org.chameleon.Boot.plist.zip
  3. Yep, got it. Apparently the led stays red but pressing the button turns the WiFi on and off. By the way, I'm using DSDT and doing edits right now, and with DSDT you can delete the IOUSB* kexts, EvOReboot, NullCPUPowerManagement, ElliotRTCLegacy kexts for a more vanilla and stable system. Plus, DSDT + SleepEnabler has sleep working almost perfect (USB drives get ejected on wake, but plug in/out will work again. USB mouse receivers wake properly.) And, I've tested the mach_kernel and it does not give me KP. What gives KP is the VoodooBattery and VoodooHDA, both are pretty poorly written and unstable, trying to find alternatives/fixes... What I have left to fix: - DSDT fix for AHCIPortInjector - DSDT fix for SleepEnabler - Better Battery - Better Audio - USB 3 support (IORegistryExplorer shows XHC not loaded) - Webcam - Card Reader (PCI-E, most people say can't get it to work) - Brightness adjustments doesn't work
  4. Thanks for your help, finally got OS X up and running! I got a problem now though... I replaced the WiFi with an AR9280 and tested it, works great in Windows. But when I start OS X, the Wifi Button (on the keyboard) is red and stays red... pressing it doesn't work... and the WiFi in OS X cannot find any networks. Did you face this problem?
  5. This didn't work for me. I tried both below with "CPUS=1 USBBusFix=yes ForceHPEToff=yes". Then I realized that "ForceHPEToff" is not a valid option (it's not, I checked Chimera), so I deleted AppleHPET.kext instead. I tried this with ###### 1.5 and got stuck at "Still waiting for device root...". I tried again with ###### 1.4 with "-v -x cpus=1" and got to the installer page, but I don't see any hard drives listed. Any help?

    If you have an Nvidia graphics card, I suggest you use EFI strings. It's a nice, clean solution that does not depend on kernel extensions. Simple, too.
  7. AMD and Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.5 --> 10.6.8 Final[GUIDE]

    This is perfectly normal. Since the kernel is modded, the installer will throw this error at the very end. Just reboot and continue on with the tutorial. I tried the legacy kernel, and OSX didn't detect my HDD #2 and HDD #3. I had to turn off AHCI and change it to IDE for it to detect my HDD #2. When I use the legacy kernel, Quicktime crashes when I play h.264 videos. Any solution? Valve/Source games use Quicktime to play in-game videos and as a result the games crash.

    Download the sysenter patcher and extract it. You should find a <something>.sh in there. Open up terminal, and change to that folder. Enter sudo <something>.sh and type in your password. The patcher should inform you 2 of 4 files were patched. Restart the computer and use the boot flag -force64 and you'll boot with your full amount of RAM with apps working. Caveat: Quicktime crashes when playing h264.

    Thanks alot, that fixed my problem with -force64! Last question, my OSX install is not detecting other hard drives (I'm using MBR btw), it only detects it's own drive (which contains 2 HFS+ partitions), and doesn't detect the other two NTFS drives. I tried checking /dev, and only rdisk0 (OSX) and rdisk1 (USB) is present. Any help? I'm running on AHCI for all my drives.

    Hi, The legacy kernel works but has problems. If I don't use any kernel options, I get the error in the image: http://i56.tinypic.com/jagfah.jpg, and a restart loop. If I use the kernel option "maxmem=4096", everything works 100% but I have only 4GB of RAM (my PC has 8GB). If I use the kernel option "-force64", I can boot with 8GB RAM but alot of programs (Flash, Quicktime, Itunes, etc.) don't work. Any solutions?

    Thanks, the permission fix helped me install OSX. I have some problems with your guide after that though. >> after Setup boot loader put your boot.plist that contian flag busratio=16 on extra it is very important to next step Which boot.plist? The one in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/? >> After thus setup legacy kernel it will add kernel name to boot.plist we added before and patch CPUID The legacy kernel link is down, can you please reupload it? Is patch CPUID done automatically by the legacy kernel setup or must it be done manually? I tried to do everything without the legacy kernel and I got into a reboot loop
  12. After tons of searching, I finally found someone with a similar issue: http://osx86.net/f84/usb-not-working-in-va...a-10-6-2-t5110/ Apparently, the IRQs are in conflict, and can be resolved by removing AppleHPET.kext. According to a reply in the thread,
  13. Still no headway, any help?
  14. I've also checked Disk Utility and System Profiler: the devices are simply not detected. The detection of the wireless mouse is also sporadic, it may not be detected in 1 out of 3 restarts.
  15. I just installed OSX Snow Leopard on my C2D laptop. I used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] along with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], and I restored the 10.6.2 IOUSBFamily as advised by the guide. Everything's fine, except for USB Mass Storage devices. USB itself is fine: I have a wireless mouse working that functions via a USB receiver - that's detected fine. However, mass storage devices (tried 2 flash drives and a portable hard disk) all fail to be detected. Anyone has any idea?
