  1. AppleHDA.kext from Mac OS X 10.5.2

    Posted patched version in first post.
  2. Hi. I've looked at the new AppleHDA extension from 10.5.2 update and that's what i found: - layouts and path maps are not anymore located in AppleHDA.kext\Contents\Info.plist - they can be found in new plugin - AppleHDAPlatformDriver.kext - AppleHDAController.kext is matching devices by IOPCIClassMatch, but there is also an additional protection, which checks IORegistry entry of audio device - its name must begin with HDEF not AZAL or something else I will add more information if i find something interesting. EDIT: Device name protection can be bypassed by patching the extension. (I don't know whether i can put here the patched version) Also this version in my opinion gives slightly better sound quality and on my ALC889A, especially with iTunes' sound processing enabled. EDIT 2: As Taruga has found some time ago, 10.5.2 extension supports some new codecs. Refer to that post: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=77191 At the moment i'm working on universal patch for AZAL* and HDEF* (my current patch only works with AZAL codecs). EDIT 3: (EXPERIMENTAL) Universal patched version (on AZAL* codecs it throws some assertions, but it shouldn't matter). Extension contains layout and path maps for ALC889A: AppleHDA.tar.bz2 EDIT 4: This kext is not for normal/usual use. It's experimental and should be used for making support for these new codecs only. Maybe in future it will be as functional as previous kexts patched with Taruga's patcher, but not now.
  3. Interesting... I have P35-DS4 too (rev.2.0) and i don't have problems with shutdown, sleep is working good too. My problem is little different, system hangs on MACH REBOOT while rebooting and i have to press reset button to restart my computer. I have iATKOS installed with PC_EFI v8, vanilla kernel and AppleACPIPlatform and Thermal/CPUPowerManagement kexts removed.
  4. On Leopard (iATKOS 1.0i) NCQ and S3 Sleep are working for me. My config: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 rev. 2.0 - BIOS F9 - Internal SATA as AHCI - JMicron Disabled WD5000AAKS - Connected to orange port 0 - Discovered by OS X correctly 8600GT 256MB VRAM 2 GB DDR2 PC2-6400 Core 2 Quad Q6600 Only problem i have is system hanging on MACH_REBOOT while rebooting, so i need to reset my computer...
