  1. What about third-party signed kexts? Do those work, or do third-party vendors with drivers for OS X (such as NTFS) need to set a boot flag for OS X in their installer?
  2. Upgrade minor version - how?

    App Store updates should work, just make sure you have a backup and a copy of any third-party kexts you have installed. I usually make a USB with Clover installed just to be safe, but that's not necessarily required.
  3. Issues with ALC892

    Assuming the jack is stuck, how would I fix this? FYI sound works in Windows so I don't know if it's a software issue or a hardware one. Thanks for the response!
  4. Issues with ALC892

    Hey all, I just updated to the Public Beta and I've encountered issues (yet again, this darn thing) with ALC 892 audio. I've tried the kexts from the AppleHDA thread, as well as numerous other "fixes" for this chipset. However, no matter what I try, the "Output" tab in System Preferences --> Sound will ONLY show Line-Out, headphones, and Digital-Out. in the past (DP4 and previous), I used "Built-in Speakers" which are no longer available. My current setup: HDA Enabler (I've tried Layout ID 1,3,5,7) Patched AppleHDA Clover + "Fix HDA" patch for the DSDT I tried the latest version of Voodoo HDA however this didn't work. Thanks for any help in advance! Update: The Built-in Output shows up in Apple's "Audio MIDI Setup" but still not in system preferences. Strange.
  5. Weird issue with ALC892 Audio (Update: Solved)

    Update: I seem to have fixed it! I don't know what exact combination of things actually fixed it, but here's the stuff I've done: -Turned off Intel Turboboost (I'll turn it on later as this seems to not affect the sound, but perhaps a good troubleshooting tip) -Using AppleHDA and HDAEnabler, no DSDT + Clover with a config.plist -Config.plist included FIX_HDA and Injection of audio -Using Bus Speed of 13328 (find yours using above posts) One thing I noticed is that my bluetooth stopped working - I'm using a Magic Mouse and given the symptoms of the error, this seems kinda suspicious. Other USB devices work however, so I'll look into it and post an update. I cannot stress how grateful I am to jamiethemorris. Thanks!!
  6. Weird issue with ALC892 Audio (Update: Solved)

    Okay, I just checked the log - it's EFI. To clarify, when I said Chameleon didn't fix anything I meant it just botched it more - I could use the OS for a few seconds after login before receiving a KP, and during those few seconds I found sound wasn't working at all so I went back to Clover. Thanks for the updated bus speed, I'll give that a try right now. I've searched the problem online and I don't think it's the mouse specifically - just the CPU being active (it works better when I'm using Chrome too) will affect the sound, but here are my 3rd party kexts (I'm guessing if one of them is screwing up the sound it'd probably be FakeSMC): Index Refs Address Size Wired Name (Version) <Linked Against> 18 1 0xffffff7f81c8e000 0x11000 0x11000 org.hwsensors.driver.FakeSMCKeyStore (1018) <7 5 4 3 1> 29 0 0xffffff7f81ca2000 0x5000 0x5000 org.netkas.driver.FakeSMC (1018) <18 11 7 5 4 3 1> 44 0 0xffffff7f80ee5000 0x34000 0x34000 com.lnx2mac.driver.RealtekRTL81xx (0.0.90) <43 12 5 4 3 1> (The other Realtek one is Ethernet) Nothing seems to be spamming the console log. Thanks! Edit: The new value didn't change anything, sound is still screwed up.
  7. Weird issue with ALC892 Audio (Update: Solved)

    Yep, I tried Chameleon. Didn't fix anything, sadly. Yes, I got the frequency from checking preboot.log after booting the system from my USB Clover drive. Is there a way to completely ensure I'm using a legacy boot? My processor is currently running at 2.93, should I use 29? I thought bus ratios were similar to multipliers meaning each system has a different set (x24 on my i7 is different than x24 on a Sandy Bridge). I'll try 29 now (gave me a calculation of 100000) and see how it works, I just tinkered with the BIOS settings and turned off any sort of turbo boost - the CPU should be running at 2.93 GHz right no. Thanks! Edit: 100000 doesn't work.
  8. Weird issue with ALC892 Audio (Update: Solved)

    Thanks for the informative reply! I actually realized that my processor is an i7 870 Lynnfield, and I've turned off OC for now so it's at the stock 22 multiplier, and I've used that for my calculations. According to the preboot.log, my TSC freqency is 2931245404. 2931245404 divided by 22000 = 1,332,384.2745. I simply added this to the top of my config.plist, is this correct? <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>BusSpeedkHz</key> <string>133330</string> </dict> But it doesn't seem to work. I redid the calculations using 28 as you said, and putting in 100000 still didn't fix anything. I'm at loss as what to do - perhaps I should try Chameleon, as this seems to be an error on Clover's part? Thanks for your immense help again!
  9. Hey guys, I've been using Yosemite DP since it came out and have gotten everything to work, even sleep, on my fairly old GA P55 USB3. I'm running an i7 860 and GTX 660, with onboard audio using the line-out green port at the back of the computer. Recently, my audio has been acting up and I have no recollection of changing any kexts or audio-related stuff. The issue is that whenever the mouse is not moving, sound is distorted, crackles, skips, and sometimes even just becomes a scratchy mess. I'm using the Yosemite AppleHDA kexts found in this forum for the 892 chipset with no DSDT, so I have installed HDAEnabler for injection of ID 4. The same issue is present with Voodoo HDA, both version 2.8.4 and 2.8.5. I'm using Clover, if that helps. Is anyone able to shed some light on this? I've come across my fair share of hackintosh issues but this particular one has me baffled. Thanks! Update: Check the later posts for the solution
  10. Installation Guide for 10.10 DP1 - USB

    I had the same error on my system a few days ago in Mavericks - turned out I had a corrupt hard drive. I don't know if that's your issue, but try re-formatting the installer.
  11. Installation Guide for 10.10 DP1 - USB

    Thanks, will update the guide. Question, would it still allow injection of 3rd-party kexts in /S/L/E? or do they have to be in Clover's EFI folder?
  12. Installation Guide for 10.10 DP1 - USB

    You copied all the kexts correctly right? Double check to make sure you're using the correct Clover settings, it might require DSDT patching. Are you loading it properly after the install? Try kextloading it in single-user mode.
  13. Installation Guide for 10.10 DP1 - USB

    Do you have NullCPUPowerManagement working? That's not an error, it's just allowing a kext to load. Can you boot into the system?
  14. Installation Guide for 10.10 DP1 - USB

    The Bluetooth error has no significance - most likely the error is the line or two before the error, or usually the GPU - hence why the GUI doesn't load.
  15. Installation Guide for 10.10 DP1 - USB

    I used VoodooHD for 889, it seems to be a universal solution.
