  1. ML on Samsung NP530U3C Ultrabook

    Hi all, Sorry for the extremely long absence but I've got some updates. So I've tried to persist with the NP530U3C and have finally got QE/CI working. The process: Disable UEFI in Bios 1)Install ML onto Drive (I did this with an external HD) 2)Update to 10.8.4 3)Customise clover boot loader install with boot0af in mbr option selected. 4)Copy clover config.plist to /EFI/CLOVER/ from samsung530U3C.zip folder overwrite the existing config.plist when prompted. 5)Copy dsdt.aml and ssdt.aml to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched from samsung530U3C.zip folder 6)Install with kext wizard into S/L/E the attached kexts: AppleSmartbatterymanager.kext FakeSMC.kext ApplePS2Controller.kext ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext PXHCD.kext and if you have swapped the wifi card like me to an atheros ar9285 the IO80211Family.kext 7) Using Kext wizard repair permissions and rebuild cache. 8) Put the drive back into the laptop and boot. 9) Rejoice that the laptop finally boots into OSX. Ok no further testing has been done but QE/CI works, battery works, Wifi works. Nothing else has been tested. The following file is attached: Samsung 530U3C.zip Contains the DSDT.aml, SSDT.aml, and the required kexts. Please note I can't claim credit for all this as a lot of people have attempted to get this to work and I've just pieced it all together with my own tinkering. Please search for Clover_v2_r1974.zip as this file is too big for me to upload. Post edited to include attachments. Samsung 530U3C.zip

    Seems like everyone is busy to help Anyhow I'm still attempting to fix this install. Progress since my las post, I fixed the keyboard and trackpad not working issue by installing AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext into S/L/E I've patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and have extracted the EDID information from my screen. I've then altered my DSDT to input the EDID data and and now having the laptop screen boot with the EDID data. It shows up as Intel HD 4000 384MB but I've still not got QE/CI. On checking kextstat it seems that the graphics kexts are just not loading, so I'm obviously missing something critical. Sleep,USB and QE/CI not working. Powerup/Power down/Keyboard/Trackpad(no multitouch)/Wifi all work. Anybody willing to guide me? I'm not asking for someone to do the work. I'm willing to learn and do it myself!

    Hi All, So after several different Hackintosh computers I'm at my latest. Shame it seems I've forgotten most of what I've learned before, but I'm up for more learning! Well the computer at hand, was up for a good price in the UK, all things considered it should hopefully work out after rebate at £375 but I digress as this topic is about getting Mountain Lion on the device. As you can see from my signature I'm not new to this, having a few computers which have been tinkered with over the years. Hopefully the experts, amateurs and the other lurkers will help me into getting mountain lion installed and fully functional on this Samsung Ultrabook. Some tech specs first: 13.3" LED (1366 x 768) Intel HD 4000, 6GB DDR3, Wifi Swapped for Atheros AR9285, Li-Polymer, 3rd Gen (Ivy Bridge) Intel i5-3317U Processor (3M Cache, u 2.60 GHz), 24GB I-SSD, 500GB HD lspci -nn 00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0154] (rev 09) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0166] (rev 09) 00:14.0 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e31] (rev 04) 00:16.0 Communication controller [0780]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e3a] (rev 04) 00:1a.0 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e2d] (rev 04) 00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e20] (rev 04) 00:1c.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e10] (rev c4) 00:1c.3 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e16] (rev c4) 00:1d.0 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e26] (rev 04) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge [0601]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e59] (rev 04) 00:1f.2 SATA controller [0106]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e03] (rev 04) 00:1f.3 SMBus [0c05]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1e22] (rev 04) 01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc.

RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 06) Story so far: Purchase Mountain Lion £13.99 App store, long download! Try all sorts of methods to get unibe@st to work on making a USB bootable stick and get frustrated at it not booting. Eventually remove the HD from the Samsung Laptop and install ML 10.8.1 to it from another computer (GUID partiition) Install Chimera 1.11 to HD to enable booting from HD Boot From HD, lots of errors on verbose boot, so many graphics errors I can't remember them all. Finally I've settled on the following: 1)Fresh install of 10.8.1 2)Install Chimera 1.11 3)Use the following as my chamelon bootlist data <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1366x768x32</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-v</string> <key>RestartFix</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist> 4)I'm using the Macbook pro 9,2 SMbios plist 5)Install the Following attached kexts to get Wifi (but no success with bluetooth). Problems: a)Graphics : So this is where I'm upto, the internal screen works but I don't have QE/CI. I've tried all the available options on the IntelHD platform ID (from 0-9 and AB) but am unsuccessful. On one of them, string no 3 I believe and Graphics enabler off I get full QE/CI on my HDMI connected monitor but my internal laptop screen is blank/black. b)If I boot from the HD, the trackpad doesn't work. After finally getting a unibe@st installer working, I can boot from it and select it to boot the HD then the trackpad works. c)USB ports don't work aswell as a whole lot of other stuff. If someone could please assist me in helping to fix this laptop I would really appreciate it. Also I'm trying to get back into editing my DSDT, but I'm failing miserably so help is appreciated! As far as I can understand the spec is very similar to the ASUS UX32VD. Thanks in advance for help received. Sam Samsung dsdt.aml.zip Atheros AR5B195 pack.zip
  4. Hey Mammoth, I've had this setup since your V1 Guide. My primary drive with Win 7 was removed and swapped for my secondary on which I installed OSX. Now OSX is my primary drive and chameleon boots on it, to show my my boot options: Drive 1 : OSX, Ubuntu Linux Drive 2 : Win 7, Recovery Partition, Win 7 OS All works properly with me being able to boot whichever I need by selecting it in chameleon. Thanks for your hard work as always. Sammity
  5. Hi Spawnedc, I didn't actually try Nixin's bios, so I can't really say I'm afraid. The bios I've posted was downloaded from the HP website directly, then modifed by a really helpful soul at mydigitallife forums. This was from a link that mammoth provided a few pages back when he suggested the way forward was a whitelist removal. At the time I new little about it, so I read up on it ,as my HP is still very very new with the plastic still on the lid . As I understand it, the bios is the original HP Insyde bios f.25 without the whitelist so hopefully I'll stay in warranty (with the original bios dates etc.)
  6. Hi all, @Mammoth thanks so much for the new updates, it keep the lurkers like me happy thought I'd add a few bits and pieces. I've flashed my Dv8-1200 with a whitelist removed bios, this is a modified version of the original HP f.25 bios available on the HP website. I'm now using an apple original Airport card having removed the intel card. This is an original Insyde bios just modified to have the whitelist removed, but the flash does have to be run in Windows.( (Please note you do this at your own risk and it will only work on the DV8- series) I've found a great application that has enabled me to change my brightness without having to press the annoying fn+scroll or fn+pgup, I've reassigned the f7 and f8 keys so I can now press them accordingly to adjust brightness up or down. The app is called bettertouchtool and can be downloaded here: http://www.boastr.de/ thanks! HP_dv8_sp49106_7001F25_no_whitelist.zip
  7. Hi, Sorry this is a thread for HP, machines so I don't think you'll find any appropriate responses for your question. Please try to ask your question in the main forum and you may get a better response. Thanks!
  8. @NIXin, Awesome skills, just used the autopatcher with Gsly's battery kext and it compiled without problem and I now have a correct battery time remaining shown in my DV8. thanks! @Mammoth Yeah I did read the instructions twice, Since I was testing i just wanted to see how far I could proceed before i encountered a roadblock. Just for information purposes more than anything. Naturally I'm not expecting a full working system from a beta.
  9. Gsly. Thank you, thank you, thank you ! Correct time now shown on my dv8 for the remaining battery life Awesome.
  10. Hi all, Mammoth, thanks for the option to beta test here are my results: 1) Fresh 60gb drive no partitions, bootet with the beta cd and received the error after a little while: still waiting for root device? 2) Restarted machine, booted the cd properly and then managed to boot a 10.6.3 disk and boot to installer, booted to disk utility and tried to partiton disk, was unable to make the Cham partition smaller as suggested but proceeded anyway. 3)Smooth installation with no key presses, just mouse movement on screen blanking. 4) Installation completed in 20 mins, restart with your boot cd and booted into a fresh install on the HD. 5)Followed instructions in guide, but skipped installing legacy kernel, just went straight to installing 10.6.4 then kokomal kernel. 6) No kernel panics on restart but Cham didn't install properly? 7) followed guide again and tried to reinstall cham but again failed. 8)Reformatted drive and reinstalled from scratch to make sure it wasn't some silly error, still stuck at same point again with installing chameleon Could you please check the file is correct on the cd or if I'm making a basic error? Happy to format drive and try again. Thanks.
  11. Hi Mammoth, I'll be happy to participate in testing. As this seems like a job interview I hope the CV will be ok, if not it's back to using windows.... User id Sammity Hp DV8-1200 Model WF681AV Core i7 1.6ghz Will be installed on an internal 60gb fresh hard drive Nvidia GT230m GPU My DSDT that has been used after Nixin's autopatcher is attached. Thanks again for all your hard work that you've been putting into this. dsdt.aml.zip
  12. Just a quick add on, system profiler is incorrectly displaying my graphics chip as a nvidia GT 320m when in a dv8-1200 such as mine the chip is a gt230m.
  13. Hi all, Hope you're having a great christmas day off. Thought I'd add my test results aswell. I've managed to extract a vanilla DSDT using Ubuntu which I then patched ith NIXin's awesome work (seriously wow). 1)It complied first time and booted quickly into OSX, I've run geekbench and have unfortunately suffered a slight performance score drop. With the autopatch modified DSDT I'm getting a geekbench score of 6509 and my original modified DSDT gives me a score of 6629. 2) Finally a working backlight control! Ivik's kext and the autopatcher's effect on the DSDT are awesome, love the fact I can finally adjust screen brightness. I know it's not vanilla but I installed the genericbrightness.kext into s/l/e. 3) No audio on HDMI out for me unfortunately, I had the computer on and plugged in an HDMI cable onto to be left with a blank blue screen, had to shutdown and restart with the cable plugged in to get a second display up. But no luck with the audio out, removing the cable gave me a kernel panic. 4) Sleep works fine, ie. lid close=machine sleep Didn't test whether a screensaver active would prevent sleep or not. In this time I hadn't noticed my battery was critical but it went into deep sleep like a mac and booted from where I'd left off which was nice. (I've written a post a few pages back which shows how to incorporate this). 5)Video playback was fine from a DVD and also from a 1080p video from apple trailers was not choppy but played smoothly. Awesome stuff so far, thanks fo much to all that are helping. Really has made my purchase of the DV8 all the better. Any testing I can do let me know I'm happy to help.
  14. Hi NIXin, Thanks for your super work so far, I'm also using a DV8 series laptop like Mammoth and is the reason I'd posted the graphics key with 1920x1080x32 A few pages back you should find my DV8 DSDT, the spec of my computer can be seen in my sig. That should be a fresh DSDT after a 10.6.5 update and taptun's 64bit kernel, if that is of any use to you. Thanks!
  15. Hey Mammoth, Awesome stuff on the contrast slider in Universal access, a slight slider movement has really improved the screen. Two things: 1)I've been trying to enable deep sleep when the battery is low, but naturally without correct information being sent it's not working as required, however I've installed the autodeepsleep package from post 10 in this link Deepsleep and like my macbook pro it does boot from the image file. Not 100% due to the incorrect battery information being represented but getting there. 2) Not a big thing but I've added the following text: <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> to my com.apple.boot.plist and I can read the errors a little better, only useful for newbies I'm sure. I'm happy to be a tester for 1.20 Thanks
