  1. Just a update, I went back through these various EHCI/UHCI DSDT modding tutorials linked above and I did find two mistakes in my DSDT, one was using the same value for the 'AAPL,clock-id' parameter across all my USB devices (prolly not a big deal) and the other was injecting an ICH10's device IDs into my UHCI methods when it was not needed (I have an ICH8 which is natively supported, doh!) - sometimes cutting and pasting is bad. Anyway the problem with AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement was not fixed and still remains but it was nice to fix those mistakes. I will do some more testing to see if devices other than iPhones cause this - I also want to narrow down to see if it's EHCI only, which I suspect. If anyone is interested, I'll post the crash dump pointing to IOUSBFamily. Thanks!
  2. Hey, thanks for the quick response! I've done some DSDT patching for EHCI/UHCI but as you said maybe there's something more so I'll look through your links. Funny thing is that it's just the iPhone that causes problems (other USB devices are ok), and this sleep problem only arises when AppleIntelCPUManagement is active. Anyway I'll let you know how it goes!
  3. Seeing a strange problem since getting all this stuff working - and since everyone on this thread is probably a native OSX speedstep user, perhaps this is the best audience, so bear with me... As I mentioned a few posts ago, I got all the native speedstepping working by following instructions on this thread and by creating a legacy custom kext to eliminate the CPUPLimit for my MacBookPro3,1 - so all is well and the machine steps through all 10 stages and I'm running around on average 6 to 10 degrees cooler. So obviously, I now no longer need Sleepenabler.kext and NULLCPUPowerManagement.kext - hooray. The computer sleeps, and I even got video mirroring working now, which never worked before (surprised that it's related, but I'll take it!) HOWEVER - I can no longer sleep the machine with my iPhone plugged in - it just crashes immediately and eventually returns a sleep failure code of 0x12000770. It's very clearly a crash in the USB driver and this is indicated in the dump. Has anyone else experienced this behavior? Other simple USB devices (mouse, keyboard, mass storage, etc) are fine and cause no problem - so far it's just the iPhone. When I switched back to NullCPUManagement and SleepEnabler, the computer sleeps fine with the iPhone plugged in. Not a tradeoff I'm willing to make and I can live with unplugging the phone before sleep, but this is bizarre. If any kind soul is interesting in helping, I'll be happy to upload the dump details. Thanks!
  4. I think you just answered your own question. You can try MacPro3,1 as that model has no CPUPLimit by default. Note that none of this works if you don't get the c-states and the p-states generating properly, though.
  5. This site never ceases to amaze me. Just want to shout out some huge thanks to the geniuses on this thread - I just checked out the latest chameleon trunk, built it, plugged it in, and enabled P and C state generation (and dropped SSDT). Everything works flawlessly - including native power management NATIVE sleep - got rid of sleepenabler at long last cpu detection (mine is a core 2 duo) memory detection I was even able to get things running optimally by picking the correct macbook pro model that had my CPU back in 2007 in smbios.plist - as soon as I stepped down from a MacBookPro4,1 to a MacBookPro3,1 things started humming. All this by simply reading and doing a little thinking. thanks thanks thanks thanks.
  6. My thanks to chrand and BuildSmart - this is one heck of a tutorial and made extra easy by the fact that everything you need can be obtained with apt I did it with an Ubuntu 9.04 Live CD by following these steps exactly - didn't even have to write anything to hard disk. I successfully rebranded an HP-branded BCM94321 to an Apple Airport Extreme. Nice job guys.
  7. HP DV Series Whitelist BIOS hack

    Your odds are not good. Even if you do find the list of whitelisted adapters for that BIOS it's probable that none of them are OS X compatible. I could be wrong - hopefully someone who knows something about your particular laptop can help... Good luck.
  8. HP DV Series Whitelist BIOS hack

    The reason your 4311 is being rejected by your HP computer is because that particular card is not on the whitelist for that particular HP model, even after your rebrand operation. It doesn't matter if it's an HP-branded card - the whitelist only allows certain cards depending on your computer model. Read the topic closely. You could try to figure out what the allowed cards in your whitelist are, and then rebrand accordingly if something close to the 4311 is allowed. Search around for how to do that. Do not arbitrarily rebrand your wifi card though... Also, I believe it's been stated a few times in this forum that the Insyde BIOS you're referring to cannot currently be hacked to disable the whitelist check for wifi cards. Again, read closely. Dude, major props... your hacked BIOS and method for F.59A worked perfectly for me on my HP dv9700t - thanks!
  9. @Farkonian - you are a farkin' genius buddy. I have NO idea how you figured out that the problem was the DVD drive's firmware being somehow locked out from other O/S. I had no expectations that this would work but I am HAPPY TO HAVE BEEN WRONG. Your last post gave me an idea of what to try... with a few mods to your instructions (see my sig for my h/w config) my drive now works natively in iTunes & everywhere else. So I'm posting this to let you (and others!) know that this method DOES WORK! Since my drive was a TS-L632N I had to scour around for its compatible firmware but I found it! x-drivers.ru is a great site... Then I opened up the package in WinRAR, and extracted the .BIN file Used tsdnwin to flash the drive - tsdnwin is newer and easier to find - if y'all can't find the other program referenced in this thread, Google for it. It has to be run from Windows, AS ADMINISTRATOR, from a command prompt with the --nocheck option. This will NOT work from a virtual machine, so you need to boot your drive in a computer running Windows (XP, Vista, 7 all work). [use GParted (Google it) to partition your drive non-destructively to install Windows, if you have to. You can always remove the partition later if you want and return the space to your OS X partition.] [*] Flash the drive with tsdnwin, wait a while, reboot! Thanks to everyone who helped get us to this point - I am pleased as punch. EDIT: Mac Hawk - special shout out for cluing us (me) about the firmware solution
