  1. Ok..I have an HP Envy 15t-j000 touchsmart quad edition laptop with Beats Audio. I am able to listen to sound natively using the AppleHDA kext. My problem is that i am able to listen to sound through the two bottom speakers but my two built-in top speakers and subwoofer do not work. I have searched everywhere, especially these forums for a solution and cannot find one. Could someone please guide me in the right direction to get these speakers and subwoofer working, rather it be natively or through voodoohda?

  2. I've a HP Envy 15-k204tx, 5th Gen i7- 5500U ( broadwell ). Task : Trying to make Sierra work on this laptop. It has Intel HD 5500 Graphics and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M (Optimus) How / What I did : 1) Created a bootable pendrive from the Sierra app downloaded from app store. 2) Installed Clover to pendrive using clover installer. 3) Used clover options like kext-dev-mode=1 nv_disable=1 Issue : When I boot through the pendrive, I get options for selecting other OSes along with Sierra installer. When I select Sierra installer to start the installation, it comes to a black screen immediately. The problem is it doesn't show any text no matter if i use -v or -x or -s as clover boot options. It is really difficult to know the exact problem due to lack of logs. Can anybody help?
  3. I've a HP Envy 15-k204tx, 5th Gen i7- 5500U ( broadwell ). Task : Trying to make Yosemite work on this laptop. It has Intel HD 5500 Graphics and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M (Optimus). Success so far : I've successfully installed Yosemite 10.10.3 on a separate partition. Can boot from the clover pen drive. Issues : Graphics is not accelerated. There are a few more but my primary focus here is to make Graphics work. What is understood : 1) Optimus does not work, so forget about nvdia. How / What I did : 1) Created a bootable pendrive from the Yosemite app downloaded from app store. 2) Installed Clover to the fat partition of the pendrive. 3) Used clover options like kext-dev-mode=1 nv_disable=1 4) Successfully installed Yosemite and booted successfully using the clover on pendrive. Using config.plist, injected Intel and ig-platform-id=16160000 and also tried with ig-platform-id=16160002 device-id=80861616 Graphics card is identified as "Intel HD 5500" but the vram that it shows is 7 mb. My system has 4 GB of graphics memory. From what I've read on the internet, atleast 1536 mb should be recognized as vram. No kext for graphics is loaded - obviously. In tutorials on the internet, I come to know that I have to check DVMT and it should be atleast 64 mb to pass the stolenMemory error. I tried to change DVMT in various ways. For instance, I booted with EFI-shell, used "setup_var 0x18c 0x3" which could not change the variable value and threw error. So i checked with "setup_var2 0x18c 0x3" which did change the value but it was reverted once the system rebooted. I tried to edit the file "/sys/firmware/efi/efivars/Setup-XXX" but was unable to save it. Access to write to efivars was denied each time. (Yes i did use sudo). [P.S. 0x18c is my DVMT variable. Bios is Insyde F.34] So I had to patch AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer binary to skip stolenMemory Error. This allowed me to install Yosemite and boot. What is working : 1) Ethernet. 2) Keyboard / touchpad / touchscreen. What is not working : 1) Graphics 2) Wireless 3) Audio 4) Bluetooth 5) and more. Can anyone help me out here to make the graphics work ?
