  1. iCloud login issue

    Yep. maybe it did for me too. If I had Little Snitch turned off... Turned it off and voila.. it works perfectly. Trying now how to get Photostream working while Little Snitch's active.. For some reason it's blocked although I dont have a rule forbidding it...
  2. iCloud login issue

    Nope... doesnn't work for me. Did you get the same message?
  3. iCloud login issue

    Hi everyone, I don't know any further with this issue. I just can't log in to iCloud on my hack. It keeps saying "Unrecognized Apple ID or password" and "You can't sign in at this time. Try signing in later" Here some facts: I set up my account on my iPhone and there it seems to work perfectly there. Mac Appstore and Facetime are working. I'm using Chimera v1.5.4 r1394. No RAID. Lion's build: 11C73. I have a genuine Serial in my smbios.plist (see below). Ethernet's working fine despite. As you can see i'm using an EFI string for LAN. Deleting NetworkInterfaces.plist and com.apple.network.identification.plist didn't work either. I have a ASUS P5Q SE Plus with a Realtek RTL8111C chip on it. CPU: Intel Q8400 2,66Ghz LGA775 I really don't know what to do now. Hope you guys can help me out. Thanks in advance! and now a bunch of stuff you might need.. Here's what the console said: 06.11.11 11:18:19,300 System Preferences: The IAAccountDiscovery completed notification 06.11.11 11:18:31,639 System Preferences: AOSKit WARN: Config request failed. 06.11.11 11:18:31,639 System Preferences: AOSKit ERROR: C request failed 06.11.11 11:18:31,661 System Preferences: AOSKit WARN: Config request failed. 06.11.11 11:18:31,661 [0x0-0x2d02d].com.apple.systempreferences: Der Vorgang konnte nicht abgeschlossen wer 06.11.11 11:18:31,662 [0x0-0x2d02d].com.apple.systempreferences: den.

  4. PCI-E Soundcard for Lion

    Well, I found out on my own.. though I couldn't find a pci-e card, i were able to free a normal pci slot in order to use it for sound. I now purchased a terratec aureon space 7.1 for less than 10 bucks at ebay. using the drivers for snow leopard provided on this site: http://www.audio-evolution.com/drivers/ (thanks to audiodriverwriter!!!) there are some other cards mentioned, which should also work in lion.. now i just had to throw out my voodooHDA.kext and reinstall the Envy24HTPCIAudioDriver.kext, which should be installed by the installer.. for some reason it hadn't been loaded in lion. but reinstalling using [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and rebooting solved this problem. And right now I'm enjoying some great tunes Check out this thread too: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=25145
  5. Hi everyone, I'd like to replace my onboard audio with a better sound card. Is there any card, which is fully working under Lion GM? It should have 6 channels + 2 input and a pci-e interface. If there aren't internal solutions, usb/firewire would be fine too, but i prefer the internal ones.. I want to do some recording, but mainly it's for listening to music/ watching movies. Can you recommend something close to this? btw, i'd like to spend no more than 80€.. thanks in advance
  6. sry for bumping this thread but since i can't find a solution for this problem i really need your help.
  7. Nobody? BTW Does anybody know how the guys got bluetooth working who changed something in their bios? havent found a solution yet, but i guess their solution might be mine too since the problem is quite similar. thanks in advance
  8. Hi @ all I had installed Snow Leopard on an 1TB HDD and cloned the system partition via ccc to a faster 160 GB HDD. Everything worked fine except bluetooth. I did some research since then but haven't found a solution for snow leopard yet. there is a kind of zigzag on top of the bluetooth icon in the menu bar and system-profiler doesn't find any bluetooth information. updating to 10.6.3 didn't help and i don't want to reinstall since i had some problems with my graphics card, which is working fine now. any ideas? I know that you reset pram on real macs. is there something similiar for hacs?
  9. Custom Boot Screen (chameleon mod)

    sry for digging out this quite old thread.. Is there any chance to get a custom boot screen with chameleon 2.0 RC4 and Snow Leopard ? And can someone tell me what was written in the guide mentioned in post#1?The link is dead and I guess i still have to prepare the picture by myself but i dont know how. It'd be cool if this worked for my system. Thanks in advance. UPDATE: Just in case someone is interested in creating a custom bootscreen: 1. download the source code of your bootloader(in my case chameleon 2.0 rc4) and xcode (requires registration but its free(apple id)) You can get it here 2. prepare your pic of choice by converting to png and name it boot.png (transparency is supported but make sure its no larger about 130kb; havent tried out the actual limit of filesize) 3. replace /artwork/themes/default/boot.png. 4. put the whole source code folder to your root device and name it "chameleon" 5.fire up terminal 6.type "cd /chameleon" 7. type "make embedtheme" (of course everything without quotes) This compiles chameleon and will take up to 5 minutes. if an error appears try to make your picture smaller, reduce colors and make it less complex and try again 8. go to /chameleon/sym/i386 and move the boot file to your hd and replace the old one. 9. reboot and enjoy! thanks to prasy for writing this easy-to-follow guide.
  10. Full Resolution but no QE in 10.6.3

    Hi I've managed to get full res with my ASUS EAH4650 by replacing following kexts with the 10.6.2 ones ATI4600Controller (with added Dev ID) ATIFramebuffer ATISupport and installing ATIRadeonX2000 from netkas' exotic card package. Now almost everything works fine (system profiler shows 1GB vram) except no other program which i'm using can use or detect vram: some games say: this needs x MB VRAM. Your system has only 0(!)MB VRAM. btw im using RC4(framebuffer motmot), graphicsenabler=yes, no patched dsdt In 10.6.2 QE/ CI automatically worked when I enabled every res... Any ideas?
  11. qe on HD 4650

    OK. Here I am again. Good news are: I got it fully working by following this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=201576 Bad News: there are many problems after updating to 10.6.3 but i think i will solve them some day...
  12. ATI Radeon HD 4650 - any support QE/CI?

    Does anybody have some experience with Radeon HD 4650 and 10.6.3? I've managed to get it working with full res in safe mode but if i boot normally i get some rectangles with noise. Nevertheless the cursor works correctly in front of everything but it doesn't show any effect if i click somewhere. Here my Specs: ASUS P5Q SE PLUS with Intel Core2Quad ASUS EAH4650 with 1GB Retail SL 10.6.3 Chameleon RC4 (graphicsEnabler=y; motmot as Framebuffer) + 10.6.2 kexts ATI4600Controller ATIFramebuffer ATIRadeonX2000 ATISupport
  13. Force screen resolution

    SwitchResX only works if you've already got fully working graphics. It's useful e.g. if you've got a 16:10 screen with 1680x1050 or something strange like that. But first you've got to make OSx86 recognize your card correctly.
  14. 10.6.3 with 4670

    Here are the ones I've replaced: ATI4600Controller ATIFramebuffer ATIRadeonX2000(not included in attachment) ATISupport I added ATIRadeonX2000.kext because I put my Dev ID in there (Ive got a 4650 GPU) Its almost working. now my prob is that im stuck at 1024 x 768. QE isn't working and although system profiler recognizes the card as 4650 series, it shows a VRAM of 256MB instead of 1GB. If I try to start Blender it doesnt even recognize any VRAM. Does anybody have some experience with this GPU/ graphics card(EAH4650) and 10.6.3? Before updating everything worked fine. Im using PC_EFI 10.5 since my card requires it and I have no patched DSDT. might adding a dsdt.aml file help in my case? UPDATE By now Ive got this Problem: Im able to boot in safe mode and get full res and VRAM=1GB is correctly detected so i guess QE/ CI is working. (i repaired permissions and changed framebuffer to motmot) but if i boot normally i get a solid blue screen or - if i type "graphics mode"= 1680x1050x32 (which is my native res) i get a coloured mess + normal cursor in top of everything which is working absolutely perfect! (nevertheless i cant click anywhere/ the background shows no reaction) any ideas? ATI_Extensions.zip
  15. qe on HD 4650

    There is a limited support for Radeon hd 46xx in 10.6.2. Obviously i need an update... Ive got 10.5.8 so far and there seems to be no chance to get QE in Leopard. I'll try to enable QE under Snow Leo but this is goin to take some time. Will post my experiences(or probs)..
