  1. Toshiba Satellite R830/835 OSX 10.8 10.9

    Hi! I have audio output on both headphones and speakers. I use the same 1.9.2 IOAudioFamily.kext as before (currently on 10.9.1 Mavericks).

    Hi! For me GenericUSBXHCI is not working as well as PHXCD (very slow). After upgrade to 10.9.1 everything is fine.

    Hi! For audio after sleep you have to use an EADP enabler. I included one in my IOAudioFamily.kext for systems with speaker on node 14. There is also CodecCommander written by Dolnor but for me it was not working alone. For USB3 use PXHCD.kext and for SD card VooDooSDHC.kext (I use the one without DMA enabled). I tried fixing the screen brightness after sleep, but I didn't manage it. I measured the brightness after sleep and it turned out that those are the brightness levels that windows uses as well. The only fix I found would permanently set the higher brightness values, so I decided not to use it.

    Changing the WiFi card is not to hard, you jut have to unscrew a lot of screws. The card I use does not contain Bluetooth (I haven't used Bluetooth twice in the last ten years, although I have a small dongle (even recognized by OSX), I have no device I would like to use it with). You can get a card with Bluetooth for 10-15$. Maybe you can also find the the correct kext for your card and then there is no need to change.

    Hi! Sadly I cannot help here, as I don't use the default (Intel) WiFi card but bought a Atheros AR5009/AR9280 for 5$ on ebay. What card do you have?
  6. Thank you! Based on this you are using the second device in VID. I think that means you need something like this: Method (_WAK, 1, NotSerialized) { \_SB.PCI0.VID.CRT0._DSS (0xC0000001) Notify (\_SB.PCI0.VID.CRT0, 0x88) \_SB.PCI0.VID.LCD0._DSS (0xC0000001) Notify (\_SB.PCI0.VID.LCD0, 0x88) \_SB.PCI0.VID.LCD0._BCM(0x32) But there is a problem here, as only LCD0 has brightness control methods. Could you please try to add the lines above and tell me if they are working. Maybe we have to modify the PNLF device as well, but first let's try this.
  7. could you please type ioreg > dump.txt into terminal and give me the file. Most of the day I must use Windows, and can't do much with the files you sent. Thank you!
  8. Thank you for correcting the DSDT. Regarding the WAK, it is normal to have more, but you must have one "_WAK". Could you please send to me a copy of ioreg output. I need to see from PCI0 to the first display0 and its backlight kext. I hope the problem is just that you need to use PCI0.PEG.VID... | +-o PCI0 <class IOACPIPlatformDevice, id 0x100000136, registered, matche$ | | +-o AppleACPIPCI <class AppleACPIPCI, id 0x1000001d6, registered, matc$ | | +-o DMIC@0 <class IOPCIDevice, id 0x100000196, registered, matched, $ | | | +-o AppleSMCPDRC <class AppleSMCPDRC, id 0x1000002d3, registered, $ | | +-o GFX0@2 <class IOPCIDevice, id 0x10000019a, registered, matched, $ | | | +-o AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB <class AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB, id 0x1$ | | | | +-o ApplePolicyControl <class ApplePolicyControl, id 0x1000002fc$ | | | | | +-o AppleGraphicsPolicyClient <class AppleGraphicsPolicyClient$ | | | | | +-o AppleGraphicsPolicyClient <class AppleGraphicsPolicyClient$ | | | | +-o AppleMEClientController <class AppleMEClientController, id 0$ | | | +-o AppleIntelFramebuffer@0 <class AppleIntelFramebuffer, id 0x100$ | | | | +-o AGPM <class AGPM, id 0x1000002ec, registered, matched, activ$ | | | | | +-o gpu-control <class IOService, id 0x1000002ed, registered, $ | | | | | +-o IOHWControl <class IOHWControl, id 0x10000034b, register$ | | | | +-o AppleMCCSControlModule <class AppleMCCSControlModule, id 0x1$ | | | | | +-o AppleMCCSParameterHandler <class AppleMCCSParameterHandler$ | | | | +-o AppleUpstreamUserClientDriver <class AppleUpstreamUserClient$ | | | | +-o IOFramebufferI2CInterface <class IOFramebufferI2CInterface, $ | | | | +-o display0 <class IODisplayConnect, id 0x100000331, registered$ | | | | | +-o AppleBacklightDisplay <class AppleBacklightDisplay, id 0x1$
  9. Hi! I skipped over your DSDT and tried to identify the devices. If I understood it correctly, your GFX0 is called VID. Now, we can make a test. Inside the _WAK method enter the following: Method (_WAK, 1, NotSerialized) { \_SB.PCI0.VID.LCD0._DSS (0xC0000001) Notify (\_SB.PCI0.VID.LCD0, 0x88) \_SB.PCI0.VID.LCD0._BCM(0x32) This should get your brightness working after sleep. If it does, I will spend some time to figure out how to store your current brightness. Currently I cannot do it for you, as I cannot compile your AML. I keep getting error inside the WMI device. If you cannot do it, I will take a look in the weekend.

    OK, I will give it a try. First of all, you need a USB drive formatted for Mac (I created a single partition GUID disk). You can use the following command to set up your install disk or use an utility for that. I did not use any utility like [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or myhack, but that is just my personal preference. sudo '/Applications/Install OS X Mavericks.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia' --volume '/Volumes/Mavericks' --applicationpath '/Applications/Install OS X Mavericks.app' --nointeraction After the disk is ready, you need to make a few modifications. One is to make the installer compatible with MBR disks. Apply this MBR patch[attachment=131326:Mavericks_GM_MBR_Patch.tar.gz]: tar zxvf ~/Downloads/Mavericks_GM_MBR_Patch.tar.gz -C /Volumes/"installer volume name" (USB in my case) Another modification is to use Kext Wizard to install FakeSMC, VoodooPS2 and NullCPUPowerManagement kexts to the USB drive. Because I already know what AppleHDA I can use, I also installed one to the USB. If I don't do this, I need HDA Disabler, because an unpatched AppleHDA will cause kernel panic. Using Chameleon Wizard I installed Chameleon to the USB drive and added my DSDT and .plist-s to the Extra folder. On the USB drive I created a separate folder and copied all the kexts I will need once the system is installed. I just named it Kexts Now you can run the installer. After it finishes, don't let it reboot, but select the Terminal utility from the menu. from here you should copy all the Kexts you need to the new system. cd /Kexts cp -R Kextname.kext /Volumes/NewSystemName/System/Library/Extensions/ #Repeat for all kexts cd /Volumes/NewSystemName/System/Library/Extensions #Repair permissions chmod -R 755 * chown -R root:wheel * #copy Extra folder - if you formated the system drive mkdir /Volumes/NewSystemName/Extra cp -R /Extra/ /Volumes/NewSystemName/Extra/ For convenience you can make a shell script in the Kexts folder, on the USB and then just run that. After this you can reboot into Mavericks. If you don't have Chameleon installed, boot using the USB and install it using Chameleon Wizard. Since you had installed all your kexts together with the OS, everything should be working. In my case I have OSX on the same SSD as Windows (100 Gb for windows, 18 for OSX), therefore I need to disable hibernate and delete the hibernate file. sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 Here are all the kexts I am using. Also included is my Extra folder MavericksExtra.zip Most of the kexts were patched by me. It seems that AppleHDA 2.3.7 is also working, so you can copy from previous version. IOAudioFamily.kext contains EADP handler for node 0x14. I tried CodecCommander, but for some reason it was not working. Mavericks_GM_MBR_Patch.tar.gz

    Hi! I also updated to 10.9 and luckily without any issues. For me WiFi worked OOB. Could you please try the attached kext and tell me if it is working? Atheros9280.zip Audio works with the 2.3.7 AppleHDA but I went ahead and patched the 10.9 version as well. Sleep and wake are OK (increase in brightness still present). Does anybody have a good kext for RICOH SDXC card reader? Also, here are all the kexts that I use (Maverick.zip for 10.9): https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_4vW3Ql9PJCWXgzb0Q2Z0NlUmM&usp=sharing

    Zprood found an issue with the brightness in 10.9 (still black screen after sleep). He figured out that he needs to set in WAK \_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD02._DSS (0xC0000001) //wake device, originally it was 0x04C4B401 but for 10.9 not working If anybody has similar issues he can try this fix.
  13. The number is 80000001 in decimal. You need to set specific bits.It is from ACPI 4 definition Table B-6 Device State for _DSS Bits Definition 0 0 – Set output device to inactive state 1 – Set output device to active state 30 0 – Do whatever Bit 31 requires 1 – Don’t do actual switching, but need to change _DGS to next state 31 0 – Don’t do actual switching, just cache the change 1 – If Bit 30 = 0, commit actual switching, including any _DSS with MSB=0 called before If Bit 30 = 1, don’t do actual switching, change _DGS to next state 1-29 Reserved (must be zero) PS: I think the number should be 0x80000001, as I checked now the bits and bit 31 is set only in that case PS2: It turned out that under 10.9 another value should be used: 0xC0000001 is reported working.

    I found this for the brightness issue: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-lion-laptop-support/93285-fix-laptop-brightness-issue-max-brightness-after-sleep.html maybe it will help PS: in my case it will increase the max brightness at boot and therefore after sleep I will get the same value.
