  1. unbelievable, with just a single monitor sleep/wake shutdown/restart works flawlessly. maybe i'll give up two 24" monitors for a single 30" ? so what gives with the secondary monitor connected? anyone?
  2. I'm in the same boat, but only after I upgraded my video card to a GTX580. All worked fine with my GTX285, only had FakeSMC.kext and a IONetworkingFamily.kext in /Extra with DSDT patched to have shutdown/sleep/restart working. Never thought about having just one monitor plugged in to see if it would shutdown but I'll give it a try to see if I have simlar results.
  3. Anyone experience shutdown/restart/sleep&wake issues after having changing video cards? I have the EX58-UD5 board with F9e BIOS and i7 920 and Lion 10.7.1 installed mostly from using DD's hackinstaller script. shutdown/restart/sleep&wake works flawlessly with DSDT modifications with an evga GTX285 video card. Upgraded to a GTX580 got it configured using the patching method on NVDAG100FHal.kext/GeForceGLDriver.bundle/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext but now shutdown/restart/sleep&wake is flakey. Symptoms: Restart - sometimes system will restart fully but not reliably. If it doesnt then only LCD goes to power saving mode but doesn't restart and gets stuck in that mode. Shutdown - sometimes the system fully powers down, if it doesn't system proceeds to power down, LCDs go to power saving mode, but the mobo hasn't shutdown and is still on, fans running, power led on, etc. Sleep&Wake - system goes to sleep, but when waking up, get graphic artifacts and then system becomes unstable/unresponsive (hasn't KP). Would there need for more DSDT changes to get shutdown/restart/sleep&wake working solid as before?
  4. Initially after I applied the patch to get a new boot file with current version of chameleon I am using, Facetime was working fine. Then I started having the error again, but also got verifying email issues at the sametime. But it ended up being that the login I used for facetime, which was the same as the itunes/app store apple id also existed as my email address I registered with. so like "user" appleid also existed as "user@mailserver.com" both I was able to sign on with the same password. I ended up changing the "user" one as "user@mailserver.com" and the old one changing it to another email. All is good now. Real macs had this problem with the registration processes as well. You can manage your appleid at http://appleid.apple.com
  5. There was a fix put in trunk for chameleon that fixes the facetime login error registration issue. I applied the patch from this post to r1020 (the version used in DD's hackinstaller) and copied the new boot file and it works!
  6. Noticed when using the time machine restore option in DD's script, after restore was done files did not get correct ownership. From the looks of it, most if not all files were owned by the logged in non-root user. Unsure if the process for the restore utility in the Mac OS X Lion installer got launched as a regular user? Had to use diskutility to do a "repair disk permission" for "apple installed" application/files. Also after a few restores and configuration changes, finally got my GTX 580 running!
  7. I was able upgrade to 10.7.1 without issue.
  8. Before I forget... made a bootable HD from the script, used it to boot into the Lion installer and restore from time machine. After restore was completed, went to a Terminal to use the Hackinstaller script to reinstall boot loader but it choked since it was trying to run sudo for the script(s) but sudo isn't available on the bootable HD. If the user running is already root would it be possible to not use sudo in the Hackinstaller script? Also not sure what other commands are needed that are missing on the bootable HD so changing to not use sudo if user is already root maybe a moot point. But I suppose I could have exported PATH to the mounted volume of the restored Lion install. So maybe the script can just add to the PATH the mounted Lion install to /Volumes/<HD>/bin and /Volumes/<HD>/sbin ?
  9. This works thanks sooo much! I changed locations of the script (/usr/local/sbin) and the launchdaemon (/Library/LaunchDaemons) in my installation of your scripts. but other than after running your scripts to boot into windows 7, the time was correct and then back into Lion and it works 100% so far I do notice two running instances/processes of the localtime-toggle script though, is that normal? $ ps -ef | grep localtime-toggle 0 76 1 0 4:00PM ?? 0:00.01 /bin/sh /usr/local/sbin/localtime-toggle 0 88 76 0 11:00PM ?? 0:00.00 /bin/sh /usr/local/sbin/localtime-toggle
  10. My SL install/drive was still in sleep mode when I got home just put it out of sleep prior to posting this. I used the sleep option from the apple menu. I'm using F9 bios still and I'm using the same DSDT.aml in both SL and Lion. I had a DSDT patch error that I haven't looked into so I just reused the same DSDT. Using the Chameleon bootloader from DD's script for Lion enabled boot. I too had some CMOS resets and a few times I had to manually re apply the BIOS settings so I may or may not be running the same BIOS configuration as before, but for sure the AHCI stuff is set and the HPET is enabled at 64bit. I'll give the GPU tweaks ago this weekend. Looking to upgrade my video card though,. the GTX 285 is a good GPU but would like to use something recent from nVidia.
  11. I had my Lion install on sleep since the morning today and when I came back from work in the evening it was still in sleep mode. I'm using AppleRTC.kext from 10.6.8 for my Lion install. bin patching AppleRTC.kext from 10.7 didn't work for me. I have not seen any waking up from sleep when booted from my SL drive/install (with the latest 10.6.8 update). I'll give it a try tomorrow morning and let you know by days end. BTW, do you have the tweaks for the video card fan speed to auto with sleepwatcher setup in Lion? works the same way as in SL?
  12. Just did this too and now have 2 less 3rd party kext, HDAEnabler.kext/LegacyHDA.kext removed!
  13. Finally had time to do a 10.6.8 (from 10.6.7) update on my backup hard drive. Only problem was audio as well and just replaced AppleHDA.kext from 10.6.7 back into /S/L/E after updating to 10.6.8 and so far seem to be working as expected. 10.6.8 apparently broke audio on some real macs as well https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3139275
  14. ahhh good to know. I also followed your guide on setting GPU fan speed on wake/boot. BTW, do you notice any video stutter when you have a monitors rotation set to something other than "standard"? set rotation to something other than standard and just drag a finder window left to right repeatedly at a moderate speed and every so often (~15-20secs) you'll see the movement of the window motion skip/jump. I had my left monitor set to 90º rotation and noticed that when it was on standard rotation the stutter went away. So now I have both monitors at standard rotation for now. I didn't have this problem prior to DSDT changes and on 10.6.4. It happens on 10.6 as well with same DSDT.aml so I'm suspecting its something in DSDT? Did a fresh install on a spare drive using the 11/19/2010 v5.0 BETA hackinstaller script. Was checking if the video stutter I was getting existed in a fresh install but that ended up being the monitor rotation setting somehow triggering it (wierd). Using C2RC5 mozo. Patched DSDT with defaults enabled. Saw these come thru verbose boot. Nov 20 12:05:35 localhost kernel[0]: Refusing new kext com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily, v1.8: already have loaded v1.9.

  15. Definitely still a work in progress. I didn't do all the DSDT patches, my first goal was to get 10.6.5 installed and determining what kexts was problematic. Now that I got 10.6.5 installed, I can now trim down the kexts with the ones I can do away with. I did make the changes to AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext but cinebench 11 test still gives me ~24.5 fps.
