    Ralink WiFi dongle not working

    Did you ever find a solution to the shutdown/restart issue using the Ralink Usb Dongle?

    Ok coolz. Thanks for the information. I downloaded Hazard and will create my bootable USB and will let you know what happened

    OK you do not have an efi partition so install it onto your HDD I assume it would be Hazard. Then go to Hazard/EFI/Clover/ and put refit.config and config.plist inside there. Still you have to edit the SMBIOS data using PlistEditor/TextEditor and Chameleon Wizard

    First install Clover onto your main HDD. Open terminal and type the following: 1) diskutil list Look for the identifier for the EFI drive 2) mkdir /Volumes/efi 3) sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/efi Go to the HDD that you installed clover and copy all the boot files as well as the efi folder. Place these files onto the efi partition and replace all data. [/Volumes/efi] Then you go to /Volumes/efi/EFI/Clover and replace the refit.config file and config.plist file You have to EDIT the SMBIOS data, change the serial and you can also specify what version of Mac you have, different versions give you a black screen but that one works for me. Use chameleon wizard to edit the SMBIOS data, generate it the cop and paste into your config.plist file. Chameleon Wizard.app.zip

    Thats the files: refit.config config.plist DSDT.aml i also put the default config.plist that you can reference later Hazard is taking forever to download, will let you know refit-config-dsdt.zip

    Hey sorry for taking sooooo long to reply, i did not recieve any notifications of new posts so i now decided to check. When i check i realized somehow ir read that i was not following the post. Very strange. Probably when i signed on on my ipod to make the last post. ANYWAY back to business I followed the default config file to get my clover working perfect. Here's what to do edit the refit.config file and set timeout to 0. [This is the same as quiet boot for chameleon] Disabling logging also speeds up the boot process. # # refit.conf # Configuration file for the rEFIt boot menu # # Set desired screen resolution if enabled screen_resolution 1600x900 # Timeout in seconds for the main menu screen. # Commenting the timeout option or setting it to -1 # disables automatic booting (i.e., no timeout). # Setting it to 0 enables direct boot to default volume. # timeout 5 - enter menu and wait for 5 sec to boot default Volume # timeout 0 - boot into default volume without GUI # timeout -1 - enter GUI without default booting # timeout 0 # Mouse pointer settings: # Set mousespeed to adjust mouse cursor sensitivity. # Common values are between 2-8. # To disable mouse, set mousespeed to 0. mousespeed 8 #mousemirror dblclick 500 # Disable menu options for increased security. These are intended for a lab # environment where the administrator doesn't want users to mess with the # operating system. List the names for the options you want to hide from # the boot menu. Currently supported: # shell - remove the EFI shell # tools - remove all EFI tools (shell and gptsync) # optical - no booting from optical drives # external - no booting from external disks or USB flash drives # internal - no booting from internal disks; this setting is not # recommended because it locks you out of all operating # systems installed on the internal hard disks. # singleuser - remove the submenu options to boot Mac OS X in single-user # or verbose modes # hwtest - remove the submenu option to run Apple Hardware Test # all - all of the above, except for 'internal' # #disable external optical shell singleuser # THEME SET #theme metal theme black_green # Hide volumes. Moved here from config.plist # Available options: # hidevolumes osx osxinstall recovery duplicate # windowsefi opticaluefi internaluefi externaluefi legacy # grub gentoo redhat ubuntu mint fedora suse # It is also possible to hide volumes by device path, GUID, or # any subtring found in device path # Look into your boot.log to find a string like that: # hidevolumes HD(1,MBR,0x223EE178,0x1,0x6689F) # be sure the string is unique #hidevolumes fedora # Disable display of text-mode output when in graphics mode. This # option is unnecessary on Macs, but without this option, UEFI-based # PCs tend to display text-mode messages relating to boot loader probing # over the GUI display. # quiet # Enable the use of the log file (for debug purpose) # This will make boot process much slower, so it should be stay disabled in most cases. # Log will be outputted to /EFI/misc/ # Make sure /EFI/misc/ directory exists when enabling this. #systemlog # List legacy options first. When enabled, legacy BIOS based boot options # (e.g. Windows, Linux via LILO or GRUB) will be listed first. This is # intended as a quick fix to change the default boot choice until full # configurability arrives. # #legacyfirst # EOF edit Your config.plist file as follows <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DropOemSSDT</key> <string>No</string> <key>DsdtName</key> <string>DSDT.aml</string> <key>FixDsdtMask</key> <string>0x3031</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>PLimitDict</key> <string>0</string> <key>ResetAddress</key> <string>0x64</string> <key>ResetValue</key> <string>0xFE</string> </dict> <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>FBName</key> <string>Null</string> <key>GraphicsInjector</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>InjectEDID</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>LoadVBios</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>AppleRTC</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>AsusAICPUPM</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>KernelCpu</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>BiosReleaseDate</key> <string>21/03/13</string> <key>BiosVendor</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>BiosVersion</key> <string>MBP91.88Z.00D3.B00.1203211536</string> <key>Board-ID</key> <string>Mac-6F01561E16C75D06</string> <key>BoardManufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>BoardVersion</key> <string>Proto1</string> <key>Family</key> <string>MacBook Pro</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>MacBookPro9,2</string> <key>SerialNumber</key> <string>SOMESERIAL</string> </dict> <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(0,2)</string> <key>DefaultBootVolume</key> <string>OSX</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>LegacyBoot</key> <string>PBR</string> <key>boot-args</key> <string>UseKernelCache=Yes busratio=20 darkwake=0 ncpi=0x2000</string> <key>prev-lang:kbd</key> <string>en:0</string> </dict> </dict> </plist> You should then be able to boot without issues. Use chameleon wizard to generate a serial number and you can also change the SMBIOS data using chameleon wizard. The tricky part here is when you install clover on the GPT drive it creates an efi partition and installs clover there so you need to edit the efi partiton files otherwise it wont work. Try this: Open terminal and type the following: 1) diskutil list Look for the identifier for the EFI drive 2) mkdir /Volumes/efi 3) sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/efi then the efi partition will be mounted and you will see it in computer Edit the files and you are good to go.

    I have the audio, sd card usb 3.0 working on 10.7.5 probably it would work on 10.8. I boot without nullcpupowermanagement and i have a dsdt, cant remember if i made it or got it from someone. However sleep doesnt work and when i shutdown the power light and the fan keeps running.

    I have 2 things to report. I dont know if its because i updated thunderbird or whatever but her it is. 1) The version of Mac you set in your SMBIOS file will affect your system in some way or the other. I installed it as MacBook Pro and all went well I then tried MacBook and it booted successfully but my graphics was hazy and pixelated I then tried IMac 13 and that didn't even boot Mac Mini didnt work either. Then back to MacBook Pro

    Thanks for the info, i dont know about the different versions so i just chose one. It would be nice for chameleon to fix this.... soooo many options and it is very easy to tweak. Anything else you detected as not working or just the camera?

    AGRP is short for AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext Back it up from your working copy, the one that has the full graphics I got my SDCard reader Working No solution for iCloud [Account Limit Reached] error And DVDPlayer dont work. Wont even start. Webcam dont recognize in Image Capture but in everything else, did you check? OK i fixed the icloud issue, had to randomly generate a serial using Chameleon Wizard and then insert it into my config file. I also Updated my SMBIOS data so it will read as a MacBook Pro. If you need help with this let me know. You have to edit the clover config file.

    First of all i formatted my drive to GPT Then installed iATKOS L2 and then i ran the software updates. I then copied out the 10.7.5 combo update and placed in on another HDD for future use and before restarting i removed AppleHDA.kext because i have VoodooHDA.kext installed and reapplied my drivers and [PCI CONFIGURATION BEGIN] fix. Also i reused the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext from iATKOS L2 first install because with the updated one you will get the black screen. So backup your AGRP.kext, doesnt need all the ATI kext as i previously said, just that one I mounted my efi partition and place my setting into there so i boot with clover and it boots like a normal Mac. No menu Can anyone share some light on how to wake from sleep. I cant wake my laptop from sleep. Any ideas?

    I updated to 10.7.5 and got the black screen then I replaced the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext from iATKOS L2 when i had first installed and it fixed it back and then i was still able to change graphics with no issues.

    Hey, I can change my resolution and it works well. I get no black screen.

    HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS!!!! Updated to 10.7.5 and rebooted to a black screen. However, when booting in verbose mode i realized a new line which i never saw before and so i researched it. error line: [AGPM] Unknown platform So i researched AGPM and found out that it refers to AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext So i booted back into my other partition and replaced all my graphics files into the 10.7.5 and BAM it woorked again. So just in case please make a backup of those Ati kexts and also AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext and AppleGraphicsController.kext :wink2:

    Yes its here a while now. By the way, i think i remember why the iATKOS ML2 didn't work. I have to download a new chameleon for ML, i now remembered that, will try it again, restoring to usb at the moment, will let you know
