  1. Chameleon 2.4 svn

    Hello again. Is there anyone else here that has the same scenario as I described above? Or someone who could at least confirm if Chameleon draws the boot up screen from it's own boot file instead of the "boot.efi" inside "CoreServices" folder? Thanks!!!
  2. Chameleon 2.4 svn

    Hi again chris. The images won't work. Not for what I want to do anyway. I want the "boot-up screen" to have a "black background" with a "white apple logo" and "white progress bar or spinner" (I prefer the spinner). The images you sent to me could be changed inside my default Chameleon's theme, I know it. I am talking about the screen that comes up "after" the default theme screen, during OS load-up. Any more ideas anyone? Thanks!!

    Hi againd chris1111. I will try to see how it looks. Thanks! I will update you.

    What two images? Link?
  5. Chameleon 2.4 svn

    Hello everyone, I hope it's ok to I ask this here: is there anything that can be done to get Chameleon to boot Yosemite with the new Black Background + White Apple Logo screen? I am using Chameleon-2.3svn-r2510 and it boots Yosemite much faster than Clover! I have already seen a post where it is possible to change the boot screen background from Grey to Black. The problem with this fix is that the progress bar/spinner are no longer visible. One thing I don't understand is this: I read in several forums that Chameleon doesn't draw the boot screen from boot.efi. The thing is, after I entered the flag "meter=0" in my "org.chameleon.boot.plist", the boot screen showed the spinner instead of the progress bar, which looks way better IMO. Is this feature not being drawn from "boot.efi"? I'd appreciate any help!! Thanks!!
  6. Clover General discussion

    Hi Slice. Thank you for answering. I had already read that post. As I said, my config.plist does "not" have "Log" nor "Debug" entry. I am using Clover_v2k_r3128, so the entry would be "Debug" according to post #47. If I have "neither" ("Log" nor "Debug"), does Clover boot as if it was set to "False"? Or do I have to create a "Debug" entry and set it to "False"? As far as not using VBoxHfs-64.efi: On my desktop, I have Clover running UEFI mode. And on this machine, I had already downloaded the HFSPlus-64.efi and replaced VBoxHfs-64.efi on "drivers64" and "drivers64UEFI" folders. On my laptop, I had to install Clover in Legacy mode. But I also replaced the VBoxHfs-64.efi inside the same folders. Clover is installed on the HDD EFI partition of both, the desktop and laptop. So I am not using an USB drive to boot. I will try the other steps and review everything on my laptop. Thanks again.
  7. Clover General discussion

    Hi Slice. Could you help me? I am trying to speed up Clover boot time. I really want to use Clover, and unfortunately I can only use it with Legacy Mode. When using Chameleon to boot Yosemite, I am at the desktop in a little under 40 seconds. If I use Clover, it can take up to 1 minute and 10 seconds, sometimes 1 minute 20 seconds. First I had a problem which I already got help on another forum for. My screen was scrambled (unusable) using patched kexts for Intel HD Graphics 1st generation with Clover. Chameleon worked perfectly with the same patched kexts. "warraysraw" was kind enough to fix my problem by explaining how I had to inject the "AAPL OS info" in Clover. The only thing I wish to improve is the boot time. Any suggestion? My config.plist has no "Log" nor "Degug" entry, which I know should be set to "No" or "False". I am assuming that if it has no such entries, it behaves as if they are set to "No" or "False". Am I correct? Thanks in advance. Regards. Lenovo ideapad z460 2GB RAM Intel Core i3 350-m
  8. [GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI

    Hi warraisraw. Thank you for answering. I "think" I'm not using any GPU related injection on my dsdt. The only injection I might have is for audio. I will give your instruction a go and let you know how it goes. Thanks again for the help!! UPDATE: Yup!!! That did it warraisraw!! Thank you so much for this!! Full QE/CI enabled!! Now I have to try cutting down the boot time. Chameleon gets to desktop in about 40 seconds. Clover is taking twice as long. It gets to desktop in about 1 minute and 20 seconds. Thank you again!!
  9. [GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI

    Hello, First, congrats for this wonderful guide!! It was awesome to be able to use my Intel HD with QE/CI fully enabled!! I was even able to have QE/CI on an Intel P6100 before, even though now I have an Intel Core i3 350-m on my Lenovo ideapad z460. I was wondering if you guys could help me wiith Clover Legacy. (I think my laptop can't boot pure UEFI). I have Yosemite installed, and the only component not working is my ethernet card (unsupported - some kexts work, but they all cause random kernel panics). My problem is using Clover and the patched Intel HD graphics kexts for 10.10. The kexts work perfectly with Chameleon, but I can't get them to work if I use Clover. I have made sure that config.plist has no Intel injection, and that VBios is patched. I always used Single-Link - Normal - LCD+VGA - LW1 and the framebuffer is perfect with Chameleon, but with Clover the screen is scrambled, unusable. Is there anything I need to do in order to use Clover? Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks a bunch!! Lenovo ideapad z460 Intel Core i3 350-m
  10. Hi tluck. I will download your files and give it a go to see what happens. But from what I'd been reading this past week, it seems that some peoplle have managed to get the cx20585 working via DSDT edits. I do realize VoodooHDA is an option, but due to the occasional KPs, I am gonna try to get AppleHDA to work. We'll see... But anyway, thanks for the heads up. I'll post the results after I try your kext. Cheers!
  11. Hello Joshhh. Would you mind taking a look at post #394 when you get a chance? Thank you kindly.
  12. Hello Joshhh. I know this forum is for the ThinkPad, but would you be willing to help me in creating an AppleHDA.kext for my Lenovo Ideapad z460? My Codec is the Conexant cx20585, and its vendor id is 14f1_5069. It does not show when I run System Info.app (not System Information), the only thing I can see is the Audio Controller (vendor id 8086_3b56). I really appreciate your help. I am attaching a Linux codec dump and a Vanilla dsdt.aml I extracted using Ubuntu 12.04 ok? Thank You!! Lenovo_z460_DSDT_Virgem_Linux.aml.zip codec_dump.txt.zip

    Hi bboyg, and thank you for your reply. Here is the thing: I know how to decompile and recompile the dsdt. My confusion is where to add the code. If you would take a look at my dsdt.dsl below, the GFX0 section looks like this: Device (GFX0) { Name (_ADR, 0x00020000) Name (DSEN, 0x00) Name (NDID, 0x00) Name (DID1, 0x80000100) Name (DID2, 0x80000410) Name (DID4, 0x00) Name (DID5, 0x00) OperationRegion (OPR0, SystemIO, 0x80, 0x01) Field (OPR0, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { DP80, 8 } OperationRegion (OPR1, SystemIO, 0xB2, 0x01) Field (OPR1, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { DPB2, 8 } OperationRegion (OPR2, SystemIO, 0xB3, 0x01) Field (OPR2, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { DPB3, 8 } OperationRegion (OPR3, SystemIO, 0x0900, 0x01) Field (OPR3, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { DP9H, 8 } OperationRegion (IGFX, PCI_Config, 0xF0, 0x10) Field (IGFX, AnyAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { Offset (0x04), BREG, 8 } Scope (\_GPE) { } Method (_DOS, 1, NotSerialized) { Store (And (Arg0, 0x07), DSEN) } Method (_DOD, 0, NotSerialized) { If (SCIP ()) { Store (0x00, NDID) If (LNotEqual (DIDL, Zero)) { Store (SDDL (DID1), DID1) } If (LNotEqual (DDL2, Zero)) { Store (SDDL (DID2), DID2) } If (LNotEqual (DDL3, Zero)) { Store (SDDL (DID3), DID3) } If (LNotEqual (DDL4, Zero)) { Store (SDDL (DID4), DID4) } If (LNotEqual (DDL5, Zero)) { Store (SDDL (DID5), DID5) } } If (LEqual (NDID, 0x01)) { Name (TMP1, Package (0x01) { 0xFFFFFFFF }) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID1), Index (TMP1, 0x00)) Return (TMP1) } If (LEqual (NDID, 0x02)) { Name (TMP2, Package (0x02) { 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF }) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID1), Index (TMP2, 0x00)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID2), Index (TMP2, 0x01)) Return (TMP2) } If (LEqual (NDID, 0x03)) { Name (TMP3, Package (0x03) { 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF }) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID1), Index (TMP3, 0x00)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID2), Index (TMP3, 0x01)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID3), Index (TMP3, 0x02)) Return (TMP3) } If (LEqual (NDID, 0x04)) { Name (TMP4, Package (0x04) { 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF }) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID1), Index (TMP4, 0x00)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID2), Index (TMP4, 0x01)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID3), Index (TMP4, 0x02)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID4), Index (TMP4, 0x03)) Return (TMP4) } If (LGreater (NDID, 0x04)) { Name (TMP5, Package (0x05) { 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFFFF }) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID1), Index (TMP5, 0x00)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID2), Index (TMP5, 0x01)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID3), Index (TMP5, 0x02)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID4), Index (TMP5, 0x03)) Store (Or (0x00010000, DID4), Index (TMP5, 0x04)) Return (TMP5) } Return (Package (0x01) { 0x0400 So, it has a lot of information and I do believe that the alignment is important also, is it not? Another problem is that when I cut/paste the section from the dsdt to insert it in my reply here, it keeps the orginal format. However, as soon as click on "add reply", the code automatically justifies left. Any help you could provide is much appreciated. Thanks again
