    Lenovo Ideapad S12 Ion Development Thread

    The orange screen of death is caused by NVEnabler.kext. No clue why. You do not need NBI - the myHack installer will do the job just fine. However, after you update, you will not be able to boot - myHack does not patch the kernel on the fly. However, you can use a usb stick to boot (like one prepared using NBI) and then replace mach_kernel with a patched copy.

    Apologies for the bad link to bcc9's patch. Should be able to find it here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=136515 The solution for the auto crackle is to get a patched version of voodoo HDA from the Asus 1201N folks. Their thread is located in the 10.6 install forum. The orange screen of death is caused by NVEnabler.kext, I think. There must be half a dozen copies in NetbookInstaller; pain in the ass to get rid of all of them. May just want to wait for the next version of NBI. In the meantime, the myHack script does the job. Haven't tried 10.6.4 yet Don't expect any problems, but who knows.

    I have edited the DSDT so the system recognizes the graphics card as a 9400m; I had QE/CI before, but realized hardware acceleration was not working with Flash/Plex/QT. Combined with the smbios.plist, originally from the HPM311 project, the hardware acceleration is on point. h.264 .mp4 1080p in Quicktime = 25% CPU / Seamless h.264 .mkv 720p in Plex = 40% CPU / Seamless (Jackpot!) h.264 .avi 1080p in Plex = 70% CPU / Seamless h.264 flash 1080p in Firefox = 100% CPU / Slide show (used "Gala" release; 720p still sucks) Oh well, you can't win 'em all :') S12_DSDT_SMBIOS.zip

    Yes, the S12 does share these problems - Snow Leopard freaking smokes the battery; 2.5 hours in SL vs ~5 hrs in Win7 or Jolicloud. And it gets hot as hell, with the fan roaring.

    Broadcom 4315 Fixed

    The card is b/g + bluetooth
  6. I see that the top post still indicates the stock wifi card does not work in Snow Leopard. Have any of you tried the fix listed on this thread? The stock wifi card works just fine in other netbooks, I just do not know of any testers for the HPM311.

    Oh no, no dongle is required, the stock wireless card works just fine. The only thing that will require a dongle is ethernet.

    Just about everything that is going to work does, in fact, work at this point. I am not counting on a driver for the broadcom ethernet card anytime soon. Current install with NBI is a bit of a hassle - need to remove every instance of NVEnabler from NetbookBootmaker or you get the "orange screen of death" (OSOD). No clue why this kext causes this problem. netkas's universal injector works well as a replacement to get QE/CI. This functionality will be a part of the bootloader in the future (like AsereBLN's work), so the need for kexts for the graphics card will go away.
  9. I now have the Broadcom 4315 card in my Lenovo S12 fully functioning with Snow Leopard 10.6.3. Previously, I used a Dell 1505 WLAN card in the WWAN slot with pin 20 taped, but have since removed it. Steps: 1. Install bcc9's AppleACPIPlatform patch and Bluetooth HCI driver from this thread. 2. Restart the computer with both WLAN cards still installed. 3. Upon restart, you should get a new network device detected - but it will be a Bluetooth device, not your Broadcom card. The WiFi light (at least for the Lenovo S12) now works for the first time. Go into network preferences and join the Broadcom 4315 card to your network. 4. After the indicator bubble turns green for the Broadcom 4315 card, shut down your computer. 5. Remove the Dell 1505/Airport card from the system. 6. Turn your computer back on. You now have a functioning Broadcom 4315 card with Bluetooth. With this fix, Bluetooth is stuck on whenever wifi is on - you can only turn it off through the physical WLAN switch. I would like some other users to test this out on their systems - I only have a Lenovo S12 at my disposal. Other details that may be relevant to the install may be found in the S12 Ion Development Thread. Will updated the S12 thread in the coming days to catch up to this and other recent developments. The problem with the 4315 was always turning the card on - bcc9's bluetooth driver seems to accomplish this. I do not yet understand all of the mechanics of this fix; now that we know it's possible, perhaps a more elegant solution will become available in the future.
  10. @juanerson, Thank you for your response. Unfortunately (for me) I already had that fix in the DSDT I was using. It might simply be impossible to make it work with the S12; 4 months of work on this problem without even a whiff of a solution. Knew I was gambling when I bought I model with no community around it. Appreciate your help!
  11. This thread seems to have an amazing concentration of DSDT expertise, so I thought I would ask if someone here could give me insight into why the battery meter on my machine will not work with any kext or combination of kexts. I've had people suggest it's a DSDT problem, but have not found much material on DSDT battery fixes. If I use a DSDT from the HP Mini 311 project & AppleACPIBattery.kext, I get a battery meter with a permanent black X. If I use the DSDT extracted from my machine in Ubuntu, there is no solution I can find that will give me a battery meter. Snow Leopard 10.6.2 installed, and both DSDTs are attached. Would massively appreciate it if anyone has some insight to share. HPM_311DSDT.aml.zip S12_DSDT.aml.zip

    After another week and a half, still no luck on getting the battery meter to work on the S12. I have attached the DSDT extracted in Windows using Everest. Any insight into what I might change to get the battery meter to work? DSDT.aml.zip

    I assume you mean the Extensions.mkext file in my EFI partition? It contains: AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext ApplePS2Controller.kext CPUInjector.kext Disabler.kext fakesmc.kext HDAIDT.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext SleepEnabler.kext SMBIOSResolver.kext VoodooPowerAcpi.kext VoodooHDA 0.2.1 is installed in S/L/E; this is the only way I can make sound work at present. Which DSDT are you using? Have you solved the battery meter problem? Mine only shows a battery with the big X through it still. Just pulled the DSDT using Everest Ultimate in Win7; maybe I will get somewhere with this, but suspect it may take awhile.
  14. Fantastic guide. Very comprehensive! Thank you for being an asset to the OSx86 community.

    Hyperthreading works with the modbin kernel - see the HP Mini 311 thread here.
