    [GUIDE] Dell L701X (xps 17 late 2010)

    Hello, Just a little update about Lion 10.7.3(11D46). I installed it, everything works good except i lost my wifi card completely which is Atheros 9280 half-pci. The wifi card was working on 10.7.2 ,so as i was about to reinstall everything i taught about reinstalling IO80211Famiy.kext from Vlad files for Lion and it did the trick for me. i guess now we cross fingers waiting for the official release.
  2. @ Mahesh Hello, i have an xps l501x which share the same webcam with the xps l702x and my problem is that the webcam is recognized by the system but doesn't work in photo boot , FaceTime, ichat or Skype. I know you said it works job with your dsdt, is there anything i should add to my dsdt to make it work. Thanks. P.S: i am attaching a screenshot of system information the USB part where you can see the webcam is there. webcam.tiff

    Hello, Thanks whitegerry for the files but when i installed them i still get no sound at all, so i reverted back to voodooHDA.kext + appleHDADisablerr.kext which is working for me. i tried the webcam fix by changing chameleon boot file to 1405 but no go. I can see it in ssystem profile but not recognized in skype, ichat, photobooth, facetime. Can someone help me fix my dsdt for it to work, i know most people here have working but it never did for me.
  5. Hello, if you want to install on mbr disk leaving windows partition just make your own usb disk ( u need a working mac and a valid lion install app) then when you make it look for nawcom mbr hack or something like it it. Follow this guide it has a video and when you install chameleonn on usb replace Extra folder with your Extra folder. Then when you boot follow with your Extra after install and install necessary next for video, audio, sound. Good luck.

    Hello, well yesterday i was trying to follow whitegerry guide to stop the pop up sound after start and making hdmi audio work(hard to follow with google translator BTW ). in the first part he is modifying legacyHDA.kext and appleHDA.kext and then install appleHDAdisabler.kext, voodooHDA.kext and by the end when you done patching appleHDA.kext uninstall them. i tried but no go lost all the sound, but the good news is, installing appleHDADisabler.kext and voodooHDA.kext stopped the pop up sound for me. so anyone interested try it and see. Concerning the battery i feel like it's draining too, although it's a 9 cell battery and i did apply whitegerry battery kext. I'm giving up on the camera now . P.S i attached my usb part from system profiler, so maybe someone can check it.

    Hello, I was following this thread the last 3 weeks, and although i got almost everything working thanks to all colaborations. However i have some issue still hanging: 1 the webcam is recognized in system Profiler but in facetime, Photobooth it say camera not connected. 2 the sound is working using Vladlenas files and boom program, but trying to install Whitegerry fix (appleHDA.kext) isn't working at all, it make me loose the sound completely, so i go back to Vlad files and install appleHDA.kext and IOAUDIOFamilly.kext. 3 installing the driver for card reader isn't working at all, it's like it's not even installed. I followed Vladlenas method installing Lion and now i'm on 10.7.2, my laptop is XPS L501x. Can someone please help with these issue also if someone need my dsdt to look at i can provide it. Thanks.
