  1. Hi I have a lynx aes16 pci card installed in my system which works when it wants to! Sometimes it's fine and sometimes it just stops or digitally stutters, manually unloading and reloading the kext makes no difference and when i reboot i get the following message: >>>> Lynx.kExt: No interrupts processed for one second! [0]. Restarting Devices! It works perfectly in windows, and never had a problem when i was using an asus Z170, so i think it might be a gigabyte issue. Any help would be great Thanks
  2. KX AUDIO DRIVER MOD Hi guys i am a small developer, i really like to use my sound blaster cards on my machines and i love also coding, so when i find the source code for the kx audio driver on git hub and then Eugene, the creator of kx audio driver decided to no longer maintain the project, i decided to start working on a mod of this driver. With my mod, created starting from the sources of the last version of kx audio driver, and also by using apple developer documentation for pci and audio drivers as reference, i am working to achieve 2 things mainly: get all the cards supported by the driver to work with all the recent versions os macOS and add support for other cards that are not officially supported by the driver that works or could, but needs to be more properly supported. This driver is made to support cards based on the E-mu 10k1, 10k2 and similars (like what is used by audigy rx and audigy 4 cards). Supported cards are: - most of the sound blaster live!, live! 5.1 and live! 5.1 digital series - sound blaster 512 - sound blaster 256 - other creative and e-mu sound cards based on the 10k1 chip (cards with the ES1370/ES1371/ES1372/ES1373 chips are not supported) - sound blaster Audigy series (1 st gen) - sound blaster Audigy 2 and audigy 2 zs series - E-MU cards based on the 10k2 sound chip - Some Audigy 4 cards (SB0610 only) and the audigy 4 pro - Sound blaster Audigy RX (sb0155) - other creative and e-mu cards based on the (10k2, 10k2,5 and CA10300 based cards) NOT supported cards: - Any ISA Sound card - ES1370/ES1371/ES1372/ES1373 based sound cards - CMI8738/CMI8788 based cards - Any CA0106 based card and cards with similar architectures (like sound blaster live! 24 bit, sound blaster audigy SE SB0570, audigy LS and similars, but audigy SA is supported) - Any sound blaster x-fi (some of them works on macOS using a modified version of voodoo hda) - Any sound blaster recon3D - Any sound blaster Z/ZS/ZX and similar series - Any sound blaster AE5 series In the time being the things i have modded or added with this mod are: - increased the simple buffer frames number with different values for emu10k1 based cards and emu10k2 based cards (including recent audigy 4 and rx) to reduce and all the audio cracking issues and possibly fixing all of them on a lot of cards - added a more proper support for the pci express sound blaster audigy rx (which basically is an audigy 4 with a pcie bridge chip) - added more fancy names for the cards in the settings and other menus (so the name will be, for example, SB live! 5.1 SB0060 instead of kx SB0060 [e880] witch was shown in the original driver) - added support to sample rate changing and added lots of sample rates (from 8 khz to 176,4 khz) to accomodate any possible usecase (note that 10k1 sound cards are limited up to 48khz sample rate, and 10k2 based cards are limited to 176,4 khz because of issues getting 192 khz to work, for now the driver goes up to 176,4 khz for such cards) - added boot args to manage the driver: Boot args to use with the kx audio driver mod: -kx_disable or -kxdisable or -kxoff This will prevent the driver from doing any initialization work, so the driver is basically disabled, use it to boot your ssytem in case the driver is giving you issues and kernel panics while you are trying to boot/using your system, so you are able to remove this driver or replace it with another version of it or to do some truble shooting. -kx_debug or -kxdebug or -kxspec Will show more debug info about the card, mainly the i/o port address and the kind of bus that it uses -kx_exp_deb or -kx_beta or -kxbeta Will enable experimental and probably not working or unstable features like showing inputs for the card or 192 khz sampling rate, use it only for testing and debug purposes, this may likely cause instability and problems in the everyday usage! Use it at your own risk! -kx_original or -kxoriginal This will basically turn off almost all the mods of this mod, so the driver will come to work as it was before modding it, this can be usefoul as a "safe mode" like feture to have a working driver in case of problems with features of the mod, so using this means no crsking issues improvements, only 48 khz sample rate and only features of the non-modded kx audio driver for mac os x - created a script file to use with the driver for installing the driver and also to load/unload, update, repolace it and it's libraries. What i'd like to implement but i don't know how to do: - I'd like mainly to add a more proper support to the pci bridge chip of the audigy rx, - have audio inputs working, - fix the support when using more than one card, to get all the cards shown in the settings and other menus, - have the gameport/midi port of older cards to be used in mac os as a midi in/out If other developers would like to join and help me, you can, and also an hand from other people with testing and feedback will be nice. link for the kext only (if you have clover put it in [your clover efi folder]/clover/kexts/[your macOS version]/ so it will not be deleted when updating macOS): - download from the downloads section: kX Audio Driver Mod by ITzTravelInTime 1.01 - external download: https://dl.dropboxus...Driver.kext.zip link for the installer pack (the best way to install it, but you have to reinstall it when you upgrade macOS, remeber to fix kext permitions and rebuild the kernelcache if you want to remove the kext from it's install directory without using the unistall feature of the provvided script): - download: https://dl.dropboxus...aller pack.zip Source code from Git Hub: - github repo: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/kx-audio-driver NOTE: Some system because of some problems with the HPET may need to use FixHPET in clover and to install the kext in /System/Library/Extensions or to do other kind of hpet mods to run the driver properly, but only on some systems, most systems should not require it
  3. Ok I think I got it! Device informations: Realtek ALC1200 00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller [8086:3a3e] Device ID: 0x3a3e8086 You can find ALC1200 on: Asus P5Q tested ok Asus P5Q3 tested ok Asus P5Q-EM tested ok Asus P5Q-VM tested ok Asus P5QL-EM tested ok Asus P5Q-Pro tested ok Asus P5Q-SE tested ok Asus P5Q-SE/R tested ok Asus P5E3 PRO tested ok Asus P5Q-C tested ok Asus P6T tested ok Asus P6T-SE tested ok Asus P5QL-PRO tested ok Asus P6T deluxe it's an AD2000b!

A: You must reinstall those hacked kexts, because the update overwrite the vanilla hacked applehda kexts. Should even happens that the update doesn't overwrite the old applehda kext driver, so in this case, you don't need to reinstall. Q: I'm experiencing pop sound, how can I solve this? A: Try setting your hack as MacPro3,1 in /Extra/smbios.plist =========== ==================== MAVERICKS 10.9 AND MOUNTAIN LION 10.8 ========================== Only DSDT method. ALC1200_lm_108.zip - edit DSDT pointing to 12 (hex 0C) layout ID, as on the HDEF text file attached - install AppleHDA.kext attached - cache rebuild - reboot this is from my dsdt (Asus P5Q with E8400 and 4GB ram) so you can understand where you have to put the hdef code. DSDTEditor is recommended. Edit your DSDT, don't use mine. dsdt.zip these are the xmls needed for our ALC1200 to work right layout_and_platforms.zip ==================== MAVERICKS 10.9 AND MOUNTAIN LION 10.8 ========================== ==================== SNOW LEOPARD and LION ========================== **First method**: with DSDT Injection, patched AppleHDA, and NO HDAenabler attached. AppleHDA_ALC1200_HDEF.zipremove AppleHDA.kext from /S/L/E and install this after dsdt edit. HDEF code is attached in the zip pack, put the HDEF code in: - SCOPE _SB -- Device PCI0 --- Device HDEF **Second method**: easier, no quality differences: with HDAEnabler and no DSDT editing. [latest] ==> ALC1200 for Lion 10.7 and Snow Leopard 10.6.3, 10.6.4, 10.6.5 ALC1200_1063.zip================================================== older 10.6x versions: - SL 10.6.2 modded kexts ALC1200_1062.zip - Snow Leopard 10.6.0 and above ALC1200 audio kext: ALC1200_106.zip ==========OLD STUFF========== ALC1200 driver for 10.5.x : I think latest ALC1200_SLIM version could be considered "final", I'm running 10.5.6 and I'm working on this OSx version. For previous OSx version you can try installing only the ALC1200fix and the HDAEnabler from ALC1200_1056LINEIN version and see if that works. The other ALC1200 kext versions out on the forum are old and I think can even cause some shutdown/reboot issue. This driver doesn't work with ALCinjector. - SPDIF coaxial Digital Out working - Headphone working - Line in is working only in the slim and line-in version, read notes down this post ----------- Works on 10.5.7, just download and reinstall the driver. Choose driver version, I think best choice is the slim version: 1. Update (4th june 2009) slim version from 10.5.7 applehda with: green line out, headphones, rear mic, line in and spdif out I removed not needed verbs for multiple channel output (I don't need them) ALC1200_1057_SLIM.zip 4th june 2009 10.5.7 version [latest] ---- ALC1200_SLIM.zip[/b] 19th april 2009 10.5.6 version (discontinued) 2. Normal version with no line-in, you can switch between front/rear mic without any trouble ALC1200_1056.zip 3. This is a beta version with all three input working, line-in, front mic and rear mic, front-mic has some trouble This version works but if you switch between inputs, front mic stops working (only for that session obviously, if you reboot it works). This happens because ALC1200 has 1 digital mixer node for 2 channel (linein and front mic) instead of one, so if you come back from line-in input, to front mic, front mic stops working. At the moment I would think this driver can't manage thing like this, so I don't know if we could have a better driver than this. Anyway I wanted a working line in and if you select this and use it, that works, so if you need line-in you should use this version. Update (14th april 2009) with RCA spdif in "about this mac" Update (17th april 2009) removed ALC1200fix.kext from the pack If you're updating your driver, in order to install this, remove ALC1200fix.kext from your extension folder, then install this with kexthelper. Now in sound preference there's no (useless) "Internal speaker" "Built in" for input and output. ================================================== Thanks the whole forum, especially this thread, TheKing and Taruga Removed verbs they're too large. This is how looks like About this mac: You're lucky, enjoy it!!
  4. I have a receiver with 7.1 channels, in which I transmit the formats Dolby Digital and DTS without problems by Windows, through the HDMI output of HD4000. On that same Laptop, I have the Hackintosh, with the High Sierra 10.13.6, and with audio enabled using AppleALC, but in the audio preferences, I can not enable the Digital audio format. Also did not find players like Mirillis SplashPro (which I have used in Windows) with the option of HDMI output Bitstream. Is it possible to enable this digital output on Hackintosh?
  5. How to make AppleHDAController load on Ryzen boards? Rename(/add) your audio controller to your DSDT/SSDT as HDEF Add a _DSM method to your HDEF device with layout id 1 Patch the AppleHDAController binary, because it has a static table containing the supported PCI Vendor/DeviceID pairs and it also checks the VendorID against known values. As an example I provide a dif file and patched 10.13.3 binary, but if you want to I can patch the binary for other versions. After AppleHDAController loads to actually get sound working you need to patch AppleHDA.kext for the codec on your board. First I tried to use Lilu+AppleALC for this task, but for some reason it refused to work. (I might look into it later why) But for the time being it was easier to use toleda's cloverALC script for that, but to make it work I had to change(/remove) the specified location of the HDEF device from the script. And for some reason it also required me to mount the EFI partition manually. Change this: if [[ $(cat /tmp/HDEF.txt | grep -c "HDEF@1") != 0 ]]; then Into this: if [[ $(cat /tmp/HDEF.txt | grep -c "HDEF") != 0 ]]; then AppleHDAController_Patched10.13.3 AppleHDAController-10.13.3-AMD.bdiff
  6. Hi everyone, I am new, I hope I am posting in the correct forum. My specs: Processor: Core i5 6500 Skylake 3.2ghz Mobo: Gigabyte h170-d3h M2SSD: WD Black 256gb PCIe (Mac OSx) SSD: Samsung 860 Evo (WIndows 10) HDD: WD Blue 1TB GPU: Radeon RX 480 Monitor: BenQ RL2460 24" I was able to install High Sierra on a new m2 drive, that I added to the above configuration with windows 10 already installed. I had a few issues during install, including the monitor turning off at boot screen. Unfortunately, this persists even now. It turns off at about 60% of the progress bar, and to turn it on again I have to unplug/plug back my hdmi. Additionally, while all of the usb ports worked during install and while running it out of the clover I had on the usb stick, only the rear ones appear to work now. The audio doesn't work either, though I added the correct patch according to my mobo Lastly, my other drives are not recognized in the bios anymore. They run fine from boot override but they don't show up in the boot priority (while multiple entries of mac OS do, and they seem to increase in number at every reboot) Thanks in advance for the help

    kX Audio Driver Mod by ITzTravelInTime

    Version 2.0


    This driver is a mod of the popular kx audio driver for mac os x, the project goal is to still maintaining it for the future releases of mac os and to include as much cards as possible and to get all the features of the cards to work. Currently the only features not supported are audio inputs and integrated midi and synth capabilitues of the cards, and some minor things like creative remote controllers or software controlled volume gears on creative external drives and bays) It supports most the sound blaster live! series cards, the sound blaster PCI 512, most of the audigy (emu 10k2 based) series, audigy 1, audigy 2, audigy 2 zs, audigy 4 (SB0610), audigy 4 pro, audigy 5 and audigy rx (sb1550) and some e-mu edsp audio cards with all the recent versions of mac os, tested to work with mac os yosemite, el capitan, sierra and high sierra on intel based machines from socket 775 to 1151 (including enthusiast platforms like x58, x79, x99, x299) and also confirmed to work on mac pros. reference topic: Kx audio driver mod [sound blaster live!, audigy 1/2/4/RX emu edsp]
  8. Version


    One file is for 10.9.2 another for 10.9.3. Recommended If you don't want to use the patched AppleHDA download the Dummy HDA. Read the READ ME to get it working Perfectly. Update 1: Using DummyHDA.kext to load AppleHDA( this means no more sound loss on update ). thanks to Pokenguyen. To get the dummyHDA.kext to work configure Clover to patch AppleHDA. Further instructions in the zip file. Open read me first! Enjoy. HIT LIKE if it works!
  9. Version 2.6.0


    Works with patch DSDT. In HDEF: Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { Store (Package (0x06) { "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-2" }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } And IGPU (for HDMI audio) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { Store (Package (0x0A) { "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x66, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00 }, "vendor-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x86, 0x80, 0x00, 0x00 }, "AAPL,ig-platform-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x03, 0x00, 0x66, 0x01 }, "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-2" }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } } Also works with Clover, using Device - Audio - Inject 12.
  10. Version 2.6.1


    To function properly must use these two patches in DSDT. In HDEF: Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { Store (Package (0x06) { "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-2" }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } And this in IGPU (For HDMI audio) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { Store (Package (0x0E) { "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x66, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00 }, "vendor-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x86, 0x80, 0x00, 0x00 }, "AAPL,snb-platform-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, 0x00 }, "AAPL,ig-platform-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x03, 0x00, 0x66, 0x01 }, "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-2" }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "AAPL00,DualLink", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } }
  11. Version v272.18.1 (10.10.4)


    This will enable your analog 6 channel surround sound using AppleHDA's native multi-channel DSP support. Furthermore, all jacks work! Under System Preferences, select Internal Speakers, and there the analog 6 channel surround sound should be. No need to create aggregate device in Audio MIDI Setup! Internal Speakers can be automatically switched to headphone after plugging headphone in. Internal microphone (rear mic) can be automatically switched to Line In (front mic) after plugging front mic in. "Use ambient noise reduction" is available when using Internal microphone (rear mic.) Add this Method DSM under HDEF: Device (HDEF) { Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) // _ADR: Address //...skip... Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { Store (Package (0x0E) { "AAPL,slot-name", Buffer (0x09) { "Built-in" }, "name", Buffer (0x06) { "audio" }, "model", Buffer (0x0F) { "Realtek ALC889" }, "device_type", Buffer (0x16) { "High Definition Audio" }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x20, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-1" }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } It is necessary for some motherboards (such as ASUS) to add IRQNoFlags under HPET, in order to load AppleHDA: Device (HPET) { //...skip... Name (BUF0, ResourceTemplate () { IRQNoFlags () {0} IRQNoFlags () {8} IRQNoFlags () {11} IRQNoFlags () {15} Memory32Fixed (ReadOnly, 0xFED00000, // Address Base 0x00000400, // Address Length ) //...skip... **CAUTION** After updating to OS X Yosemite, it is necessary to add the boot argument "kext-dev-mode=1" in order to make this patched AppleHDA work: kext-dev-mode=1 If you'd like to patch AppleHDA on your own, please check out my original topic. PS. I can't guarantee it will work for all ALC889. Please don't PM me for this, as I don't have time to help each guy. Sorry! Please do not upload this to other website especially Tonymac's forum!
  12. Buonasera a tutti, ho installato con successo macOS High Sierra 10.13 su un notebook Toshiba C660 con le seguenti caratteristiche: Intel Core i5 2410M Ram 4 GB Chipset Intel HM65 Wi-Fi + BT Atheros AR5B195 (AR9285+ AR3011 Combo) Geforce NVIDIA 315M 1024MB Audio Realtek ALC269 Funziona più o meno tutto, o meglio funzionava poiché ho effettuato l'aggiornamento da macOS 10.3 a macOS 10.3.3 e non ha più funzionato l'audio. Fino alla versione 10.3 ero riuscito a farlo funzionare grazie ad AppleALC.kext cui dipende da Lilu.kext. Ovviamente entrambi i Kext sono aggiornati alle ultime versioni disponibili, ed inutile dire che ho provato più volte a reinstallarli. Si trovano sia in S/L/E che nella partizione EFI dedicata di Clover. Prima durante il boot in verbose vedevo qualcosa come "Sound assertion in AppleHDAController at line 451", cosa che non vedo più dopo l'aggiornamento. Una volta avviato, l'icona dell'audio è praticamente grigia, mentre dalle impostazioni dice "Non è stato trovato nessun dispositivo di uscita". Ringrazio chiunque voglia aiutarmi.

    Audio basso con voodoo hda

    Salve, il mio portatile ha la scheda audio Realtek ALC3234, uso voodoo hda ma con questo Kext l'audio è più basso del normale.. cosa posso fare? Si sente più basso anche il microfono, infatti spesso siri non capisce cosa dico
  15. Howdy! My name is Joshua Bedford, and I'm brand new to this community. It appears as though I have been missing out! I started over at hewhoshallnotbenamed's (from what I understand) website. I need some help! I built my first (and only so far) hackintosh a little over 2 years ago (I think. haven't looked at exact dates). It has worked phenomenally, and was running my dual 27" displays perfectly for web development and video editing. The problem now is USB3.0, audio, and iMessage no longer work. iMessage was always spotty, but I need audio and USB3.0! It recognizes USB2.0 devices plugged into 3.0 ports, but not 3.0 devices (such as my 3TB external drive and usb hub). My question is this: Based on the hardware below, would it be a good idea / compatible to wipe it and start over with high sierra and the newest bootloader powering it? The only data on the drive is the OS and a few programs. Nothing irreplaceable or difficult to replace. My main question is one of compatibility (I'm not very knowledgeable about this process). Build: GPU: GTX960 CPU: i7-4790k MB: UD5H-Bk RAM: Gigabyte 16GB WNA: TP-Link WDN4800 PCPARTPICKER link: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/JrBedford/saved/#view=vpMLrH Everything except the monitor (I moved to 2 curved 27") is still true. Please view that for any specific part numbers! Let me know if more information is needed. I am willing to be helped in debugging the current system, but i wonder if installing high sierra would be easier. P.S. I bent a few of the pins in the USB3.0 header that connects the front panel of my case. That wouldn't cause the entire system to reject USB3.0 right? I'm plugging directly into the motherboard not through that plug.

I want to contribute as thank of all your help. I made this repo to collect all related info about this laptop. I am not using other dsdt or ssdt patches than clover ones, but I am open to your contributions. Where to start: Have a Mac? So prepare a USB using your preferred method, you can choose: Clover (Base guide Dont have a mac? Dont worry you can use a virtual box machine in your HP: To set up the vm use: http://www.wikigain.com/install-macos-sierra-10-12-virtualbox/ I discovered and posted how to run usb intaller in VirtualBox VM using Linux/Windows host:https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/5zks4c/create_sierra_bootable_usb_from_virtualbox/ I followed this guide that was the most similar to this model: https://www.google.com.uy/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiT2KW8v9HTAhWGIJAKHRtkAZIQFgggMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.reddit.com%2Fr%2Fhackintosh%2Fcomments%2F5pwtdd%2Fhp_spectre_xt_pro_13b000_running_macos_sierra%2F&usg=AFQjCNEXuPraFVEtqD7am308-wVd7ssCZQ So I did it with UxxxBxxx, with this options: UEFI Mode and Inject Intel USB installer tunning: After completing the UxxBxxx installation donwload clover configurator and add the settings that appear in cloverconfIMG folder. PD:You should also select -v (verbose) flag in boot section in first tests. PD:Ignore ket patches for the moment Copy the drivers inside the drivers64UEFI folder to your EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder. Copy the kexts from the kext folder to your EFI/CLOVER/kexts EXCLUDE VoodooHDA inside kext/10.12 folder. Sierra install: Now you're ready to run Sierra installer (if you are lucky the only issue you would have is no mouse and keyboard during install). Follow normal instructions for install OSX. Key points: Disable Secure boot in bios and disable legacy, enable cpu virtualization Boot vith -v flags in first tests. Post installation: Install those 'post install kext' with EasyKext Pro: VoodooPS2Controller.kext (Enable mouse and keyboard) USBInjectAll.kext (enable touchscreen and webcam) Dont install the optionals fixes yet. Reagarding audio i have tested to solution: Apply AppleHDA patched kext (Inside other files folder) //No microphone Use VoodooHDA installer and add the VoodooHDA inside kext/10.12 folder to clover. VoodooHDA provide microphone and beats audio but less quality and no volume. Hdmi fix: The plattform 0x01660004 dont have connectors, but is the onlyone compatible with our screen, so I patched the HEX table for you to make our screen compatible with 0x01660008 wich natively support our HDMI port. Just delete AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext from your System/Library/Estensions folder and immediately install the one inside kext folder/optional fixes with EasyKext Pro Then add this kextspatches in CloverConfigurator: | Name | Find | Replace | Plist checked? | | ------ | ------ | ------ | ------ | | AppleIntelFramebufferCapri | 04006601 01030101 00000002 | 04006601 01020402 00000004 | NO | | AppleIntelFramebufferCapri | 05030000 02000000 30020000 00000000 01000000 40000000 00000000 01000000 40000000 00000000 01000000 40000000 00000000 00000000 | 05030000 02000000 30020000 02050000 00080000 06000000 03040000 00040000 81000000 04060000 00040000 81000000 00000000 00020011 | NO | Wifi fix: Unfortunately our Intel Centrino N wifi card is not compatible i bought an Atheros AR9285 AR5B95, just replace and add install kexts inside Atheros AR9285 AR5B95 Sierra with EasyKext. | Name | Find | Replace | Plist checked? | | ------ | ------ | ------ | ------ | | AirPortAtheros40 | pci168c,30 | pci168c,2b | YES | Author Disclaimer: The majority of the software is public on the internet, I only have patched some files and wrote this guide, I am not responsible of any possible damage to your PC, do it at your own risk despite I consider it worth it.

  17. Title says it all. I have an R9 390 working great on Sierra thanks to cyberdevs on this forum. That being said, I still have no audio and have "No Audio devices" in settings and system report. I'm running a displayport cable from the R9 390 to my monitor, an XR341CK, and was hoping to get audio from the built-in speakers. Anyone have any ideas? I've already tried installing the RealtecALC.kext for the ALC887 codec in S/L/E. Running this via onboard audio on my ASUS B150M-A mobo. Thank you in advanced - lord knows this forum has saved me from plenty of headaches.
  18. Estimados desde ya muchas gracias por cualquier aporte que puedan hacerme para intentar solucionar en este caso el AUDIO HDMI y si fuera posible las frontales de micrófono y auriculares. Tengo corriendo Mac OS Sierra 10.12 en una ZOTAC NANO ID61 y va muy bien en el desempeño general y los gráficos aunque el video algo ralentizado. La instalación inicialmente arrancó (siempre en SAFE MODE y hasta ahora mismo, de otra forma queda en la manzana eterna) sin red (el bluetooth funciona perfecto) y sin audio. Em el caso de la red pude hacer funcionar la ethernet con la kext RealtekRTL8111.kext pero no directamente sino a través del paquete HoRNDIS-rel8.pkg. Para el caso del wifi el DPCIManager me muestra Centrino Wireless-N 130 integrada que no he podido hacer funcionar pero no es prioridad ahora mismo puesto que tengo red. Los datos de manual y algo mas son: ZOTAC ZBOX nano ID61 Bios • American Megatrends - Core Versión - UEFI 2,1 Chipset • Intel HM65 Onboard CPU • Intel ® Celeron ® CPU 867 @1,30GHz Onboard graphics • Intel HD Graphics Family • HDMI & DP output Memory • 8 GB SO-DIMMs DDR3-1333 Storage • SATA 320 Gb Network • Gigabit (10/100/1000Mbps) LAN • IEEE 802.3 compatible WiFi/Bluetooth support • Compliant with IEEE802.11b/g/n standard • High speed wireless connection up to 150 Mbps • Fully qualited Bluetooth v3.0 Audio • 2-channel high-definition audio • Jack-sensing compatible • Optical SPDIF Operating System support • 32-bit and 64-bit support IR receiver • Support carrier frequencies 36k Hz NOTA: En la Bios / Chipset /OnBoard Device Configuration, hay un item AZALIA con un sub item AZALIA INTERNAL HDMI CODEC que probé habilitado y desabilitado. Si lo desabilito desaparece en el DPCIManager. Habilitado aparece pero no el Codec ID. * Por otro lado hay un item de la Bios /Advanced que es Sandybridge PPM Configuration que por default esta todo habilitado. La guía que use en el intento de hacerlo funcionar: https://github.com/toleda/audio_CloverHDMI/blob/master/README.md Al ejecutar audio_cloverALC-120.command La terminal muestra: Last login: Wed Aug 16 04:05:36 on ttys000 Mac-mini-de-umac:~ umac$ /Users/umac/Downloads/audio_cloverHDMI-120_v1.0d.command ; exit; Agreement The audio_cloverHDMI script is for personal use only.

  19. Hello I'm having audio issues with my Dell Vostro 2520's microphone with VoodooHDA The internal microphone isn't detected, yet the microphone audio port is detected, and works. According to Windows and Dell, my laptop has the Cirrus Logic CS4213 codec in it, so if that's important, there it is. I am on Mavericks 10.9.5, since that works the best on this laptop, but would be open to try newer versions if things work well enough. I can provide my DSDT if needed.
  20. Salve, intanto ringrazio insanelymac per la loro disponibilità e in parte il moderatore @jolly...è bello ritornare qui sul forum dopo un annetto, dopo aver trasformato il mio laptop in un hackintosh studiando insieme a voi! Ora vorrei assemblare un pc fisso* che verra utilizzato principalmente come Digital Audio Workstation nel mio Project/Home Studio (programmi audio e anche grafici) e nel tempo perso giocherei a qualche game su steam...ho un budget di 1000 €..quale configurazione mi consigliate?? Attendo quanto prima un cortese riscontro, la prossima settimana è il blackfriday, magari trovo qualcosa a buon prezzo! *per installare sia windows che mac
  21. Installed Yosemite vanilla using chameleon on my rig...specs are in my signature I have tried installing VoodooHDA 2.8.2, unfortunately that didn't work. Then I tried patched appleHDA for alc665 from mackintosh Vietnam tool... didn't work.. I haven't find any DSDT patch for audio. Here's my System report for audio and IOReg. Am I missing something in DSDT or any kext or boot flag? EDIT 1: Tried http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/24-applehda-for-alc665/ PATCH It didnt work. EDIT 2 : Switched to Clover. Patched DSDT, Installed the kexts. Voila.. It worked Subwoofer aint working though but fix that soon. Thanks to @The_Village_Idiot, @apianti I will make a list of working/non working soon.

  23. Hello Everyone, I am making my first manual dsdt edits to enable DP and HDMI audio from my Graphics card and I am a little confused. I was able to install the OS X Realtek ALC onboard audio with Clover file and my audio from my motherboard is working fine. I found this pdf with instructions on how to make the edit, but I am unclear exactly which edits to make. https://github.com/toleda/audio_hdmi_guides/blob/master/%5BGuide%5D_Nvidia-hdmi_audio_v2.pdf.zip I am using Mac IASL and a patch I found online for some general edits. Thank you so much for your help in advance.

    problema firewire/audio

    Salve ragazzi, ho grandissimo problema, l'hackintosh lo uso per lavoro e uso principalmente logic e la mia scheda audio firewire (una motu8pre), ma stasera quando ho installato il software della scheda audio, vado ad aprire itunes per verificare se è tutto ok e ho notato che mi glitcha quando la scheda riproduce qualsiasi tipo di suono. cosa potrebbe essere??? voglio tener presente che ho un'altra partizione con lion e logic x e sia la scheda audio che la firewire funzionano alla perfezione! grazie in anticipo!!!!!!
  25. The only problem is that I don't get extended display if I boot with the external hdmi display plugged, the internal one lights up but no picture is displayed. Any clue? If I hotplug the hdmi display when already booted I got extended correctly, also if I close the lid the external becomes primary and if I reopen the internal turns on again correctly. So how comes this doesn't work if booting with the hdmi display already plugged in? My system specs suggest hd4000 id 1660009 so I put that in the dsdt instead of 1660003 Then applied these patches: for lvds internal video to work AppleIntelFramebufferCapri 010000000200000030000000 to 050300000200000030000000 for hdmi and dvi DVI (probably not needed as I only have an hdmi port) AppleIntelFramebufferCapri 020500000004000007010000 to 020500000008000006000000 HDMI (audio works) AppleIntelFramebufferCapri 030400000004000007010000 to 030400000008000006000000
