  1. Ok, I have everything working except for 'Brightness' & 'Wifi' <- obviously Here is my 'Extra' folder (FOR DV8) =>Extra.zip Note I am using 'MacPro3,1' because it work better for me Hope it helps! For Audio: I installed the S/L/E files from here (Read "Post installation (4 Simple Steps)") I also use the following code to enable my audio. sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x84\x19\xd4\x11|\x03\x76\x1d\x11|g' "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleHDA" rename '/Volumes/Macintosh HD/...' to your mac hard drive partition name. (if it isn't already 'Macintosh HD') Then restart your laptop
  2. NOTE: THIS IS ON A DV8 (btw there should be a better metthod but these are the steps I took during experimenting) I used the MIIF (DV8_03.html) from 10.6.7. 1. After downloading and mounting the file above I mounted the '/Volumes/MIID/Installation/CIIF/CIIF_DV8-F.25_sp49106_v2.00.03.dmg' 2. From the mounted volume in step 1, I opened 'Extra/Maintenance/EnableAudio' (make sure your Lion partition is called 'Macintosh HD' before opening this) 3. I replaced all the files in the 'Extra' folder from my bootloader on my Lion partition with this file - Extra.zip - You need to put your 'mach_kernel' file here 'Extra/mach_kernel' Note you may need an external mouse if it doesn't recognise your touchpad. After your sound starts working, you can delete the 'Extra' folder use your original 'Extra' folder + settings. If the method above doesn't work, try doing it backwards from step 3 to step 1 . Just experiment with it basically. I tried that and it still doesn't work
  3. Okay so I've installed 10.7 lion I restart to try and boot in.......boot loader not booting my installed lion partition. it but boots the installation drive only. (it doesn't crash or anything it just refreshes the bootloader, i think) Please help EDIT: Okay it works....the problem was the /Extra/mach_kernel file wasn't on the lion installed harddrive New problem -> It tells me I have no keyboard installed on startup screen......please help EDIT: Okay got the keyboard working with this http://www.insanelym...dpost&p=1740792 Remaining the brightness + battery management to work Pleas help my graphic shows "Graphics Display 7 MB" in 'About this Mac' on Lion 10.7.2. My graphic card is not installing EDIT: So I was experimenting and got sound working on DV8 10.7.2 but graphics is still showing 7MB
  4. Did anyone using a DV8 get any of these (http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/) drivers to work?
