  1. I already use that one, but nothing thank you anyway
  2. Hi immo, i'm currently using CoolBook and it works great for checking speedstep Do you have STAC9228 as audio controller? Do your internal speakers work? Mine are not working, I can hear sound only from frontal jacks...

    Thanks, but I'm already using it and I don't get any sound from speakers :-)
  4. I found an issue regarding sleep and USB... when the system wake up USB devices don't work, I have to unplug and replug them... this is a problem if you use internal fingerprint scanner (it's usb connected) because when you try to do something that needs authorization, a window pop up asking you for the fingerprint or for a password... fingerprint doesn't work, but the problem is that also if you put the password the authorization window freezes... moreover it should involve also bluetooth device and sdhc adapter (also if I haven't found a way to make it work)
  5. I don't have SleepEnabler, OpenHaltRestart or other similar kext, and sleep works fine.. anyway, before this last DSDT revision, I had the same problem! Try to use my DSDT with your SPSS/PSS tables to figure out if it works... the only problem waking up is VoodooHDA that plays strange sounds, but I think it's a VoodooHDA problem I'm giving a quick look at SSDT dumps of CST and they are quite different... in Apple one there is a ACST method that is not present! I'm going to try to copy apple sections to my dsdt... btw, do you know how could I see if C-states are loaded correctly? Surely I will not see the error at boot, but are there other methods? Oh, another thing... I had problems loading custom DSDT from chameleon command line... if I put, for example, DSDT=/testingDSDT.aml it didn't work.. I don't know what loaded, maybe default settings (but not /DSDT.aml or /Extra one).. maybe I must specify the device name instead of just / ... I understood this since I always got the same kernel panic when I tried another DSDT... and renaming the testing DSDT to the default name (so without any need for DSDT=...) it worked.
  6. Sorry but.. where? I followed immo's howto so I changed AZAL with HDEF and nothing more... and my HDEF section is the same as your I'm thinking about 5,1 because with 4,1 I couldn't even get speedstep (it gave me an error regarding the P-States during boot, similar to C-states one), so I thought that 5,1 is more similar to our systems.. anyway it's just an idea... I found DSDT dump from various macbook models here
  7. If you mean this one http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?...;st=0#entry1165 I've already tried with both version posted... and nothing to do About C-States, i'm trying to figure out how to make them work too.. I think we should get the CST table of a MacBookPro5,1 (the one specified in the smbios.plist) and use that or use that as a model...
  8. Now I had the time to try and yes, it was just the IRQ declaration thank you again! listen, does your audio work? I have a problem with my STAC9228.. I use VoodooHDA, it works fine except that I can't hear anything from speakers, but just from headphones... both mics are also perfectly working... @immo: maybe you could add the fix I posted to the main post...

    EVERYONE WHO NEEDS HELP ABOUT USB PROBLEMS (usb working randomly) SHOULD LOOK HERE http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1296962 My last problem is about audio stac9228... I'm using VoodooHDA, and I cannot get audio from speakers. Headphones and mics work as they should, but I don't hear anything from speakers... any help? @donkey: can you please send me your modded applehda for the stac9228?

  11. Thank you so much jkbuha, it worked!! RANDOM WORKING USB FIX in Device (TMR) section I REMOVED: IRQNoFlags () {2} I had to remove that just from TMR, but there are chances you have to remove something similar also in HPET or PIC sections... just try! I attach here my final DSDT, so everyone can use it. Configuration: - XPS 1330 - T7250 (2.0 ghz) - Nvidia 8400GS - Audio Sigmatel STAC9228 What works: - USB - Battery - Speedstep - Sleep - Audio (only from jacks and not from speakers, but I don't think it's dsdt related) What doesn't work: - C-States - Shutdown/restart What isn't perfect: - Audio problems waking up from the sleep - USB problem waking up from the sleep, I have to unplug and plug again devices like USB to Ethernet adapter. [EDIT: I changed a little the DSDT, previously I changed more than needed] DSDT_1330_T7250_8400GS.dsl.zip
  12. Hi Immo, thank you for your great job!! I have followed your guide and everything was perfect, except one thing: I didn't get my USB to work... they worked random: one reboot I had them, one reboot I didn't have. So I started to compare my previously working DSDT (where everything worked, except battery monitor) to the newly gene one, and I succeded getting one full working, but I have made a LOT of changes and I don't know which one are needed and which one aren't, and I don't know if I have messed something that I should not touch. Can you give me an help and try to patch my generated DSDT so that USB starts working? Or, at least, try to give me an advice on where I should take a look... So I attach you two dsdt: - This one is my "vanilla" DSDT, the one generated following your guide DSDT_vanilla.dsl.zip - This other one is the "everything working" one, where I have made really a lot of unnecessary changes. DSDT.USBworking.dsl.zip Thank you!!! [ SOLVED: scroll down to the next posts to find the solution ]

    Yes, i'm using latest voodoobattery.kext. If I manually load it with kextload, it always shows that the ac power is plugged.. if I put it in S/L/E, at boot I have KP regarding VoodooBattery and IOACPIFamily. But, if I boot from the DellSnowCD (that uses the DSDT that I posted above) it works fine. BTW, with acpi_smc_platformplugin.kext you mean the one inside IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext ? Regarding speedstep, now I have set my model to macbookpro5,1 and it works fine! :D Just in case someone is having the same problem, setting it to macbookpro4 showed this on boot, and speedstep was not enabled: WARNING - ACPI_SMC_CtrlLoop::initCPUCtrlLoop - no sub-config match for MacBookPro4,1 with 5 p-states, using default stepper instead

    Hi timmyj9, I have tried your DSDT and changed some kext and now USB works, thanks... anyway, I don't know if speedstep is working, because CPUi always detect my cpu speed at 790 mhz (every p-state is "strange", like 1890 mhz instead of 2000 maximum speed), while CoolBook always detect speed at 800 mhz. Moreover, xbench gives me low CPU results, so I think it is really going at 800 mhz. Any suggestion? Can you give me a link or upload your appleintelcpupowermanagement and acpi_smc platform plugin kexts, so I can try yours? Another problem is that I cannot use VoodooBattery.kext. It gives me KP. Anyway, when I use the DellBootCD DSDT, it works flawless, and it detects my battery status (but I don't have USB). Can you help me joining my working DSDT with just the battery things from the DSDT of the CD? I attach them here. Thanks! DSDT.cd.nousb_batteryok.dsl.zip DSDT.usbworking_nobattery.dsl.zip

    ATM i'm using this one.. I found it in a post in this thread. one more question: which kext should I have and which should I remove/edit to have SpeedStep enabled? The DSDT is already modified with my CPU P-States (T7250), but i'm not sure it is working. thx DSDT.aml.zip
