  1. Hi, I'm trying to customise the WiFi toggle touch key that my HP Pavilion dv6-2193el (BCM43225 wifi controller with RehabMan's FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi kext) uses to enable/disable WiFi on OS X 10.11.5. The problem is that the default behaviour of the switch is to disconnect from my current ssid and never reconnect to it. So I proceeded on patching my DSDT. By using RehabMan's ACPIDebug, I found that this button triggers EC Query _Q15 event, so I proceeded to edit that Method. Here is the original code extracted by Clover: Method (_Q15, 0, NotSerialized) // _Qxx: EC Query { Store (0x15, P80H) Store (CMSR (0x49), WAB1) If (And (WAB1, 0x08)) { And (WAB1, 0xF7, WAB1) Store (Zero, RFLE) } Else { Or (WAB1, 0x08, WAB1) If (LEqual (WAOK, Zero)) { If (And (WBLC, One)) { Store (One, RFLE) } } } If (LEqual (WAOK, Zero)) { If (And (WAB1, 0x0A)) { Or (WAB1, 0x02, WAB1) Or (WAB2, 0x02, WAB2) Or (WAB3, 0x02, WAB3) } Else { Or (WAB1, 0x0A, WAB1) Or (WAB2, 0x0A, WAB2) Or (WAB3, 0x0A, WAB3) } Or (WAB5, 0x08, WAB5) Or (WAB4, 0x08, WAB4) } Else { Store (0x07, WAB5) Store (Zero, WAB4) If (And (WAB1, 0x02)) { Or (WAB4, One, WAB4) } If (And (WAB2, 0x02)) { Or (WAB4, 0x02, WAB4) } If (And (WAB3, 0x02)) { Or (WAB4, 0x04, WAB4) } } TRAP (TRTI, 0x20) If (LEqual (WAOK, One)) { If (WA40) { Store (0x1B, ^^^^WMID.WEID) } Else { Store (0x05, ^^^^WMID.WEID) } Store (Zero, ^^^^WMID.WMED) Notify (WMID, 0x80) } } I'm a newbie on DSDTs so what I thought was to provide a nice way to trigger a custom global service on OS X that could enable/disable wifi via networksetup. So I looked inside RehabMan's VoodooPS2Keyboard kext (I use it to enable and customise my keyboard) source code and I found a way to trigger the F13 button, in order to provide to Settings a button to bind my service. First of all I replaced the Method with this code, just to try: Method (_Q15, 0, NotSerialized) // WiFi Toggle { Notify (PS2M, 0x0478) // Note: I have either PS2M and PS2K, but with PS2M brightness keys work } and I made a service (shell script) via Automator that could switch wifi, binding the F13 key (I think OS X doesn't use it(?)) to it through Settings app if [ "$(networksetup -getairportpower en1 | grep -o 'On\|Off')" == "On"]; then networksetup -setairportpower en1 Off else networksetup -setairportpower en1 On fi pretty self-explanatory. Note: I use en1 because en0 is my ethernet card That worked!... almost. I lost the feature that the button's LED turns Blue when the connection is active or Red when it is inactive. I tried to make numerous edits on the Method naïvely and tried to disable the default behaviour of disconnecting from the network. I didn't get the correct solution. I noticed that the code has three IF statements, so one of that controls the LED state, but I can't find the right statement neither I find the correct solution of throwing the PS2M event when there is other code (OS X throws me an error sound and I cannot understand why, neither system.log is reporting anything - when there is only the Notify call, the F13 key event and service are nominal) My question: one of you experts could gently help me on understanding this code and make a functional and (possibly) optimised way of doing this? I'm sure that my method of calling a service via PS2 key event is not really the best one. ### Another problem: during these numerous tests and reboots my WiFi controller stopped working. On OS X it says that it is Off and I can't turn it on. I tried to reinstall the kext, use the original DSDT, reinstall OS X... but nothing happened. System.log reports this messages at every system startup: kernel: AirPort: Link Down on en1. Reason 8 (Disassociated because station leaving). kernel: en1::IO80211Interface::postMessage bssid changed UserEventAgent: Captive: CNPluginHandler en1: Inactive airportd: airportdProcessDLILEvent: en1 attached (down) I tried to boot with Fedora (Linux) and WiFi doesn't work, same thing: it says that it's off and I can't turn it on. My question: Did I "fried" my WiFi? Solution: EC reset ### Footnotes: As always, English is not my madre lingua. Hope to be clear. Thanks for your patience.
  2. So recently I was trying to install audio on my hack. I had tried this before, but hadn't gotten it to work and gave up. This time, I initially tried to use toleda's patch from online. I tried to install it with Kext.Beast. I restarted, and the computer booted up just fine and everything was good. Audio still didn't work, but computer did. I figured I would try it again with Multi.Beast, and saw there was an update. So I got the update and got all the new kexts I needed from the update, including the audio, and installed them. I tried to restart, but I got a kernel panic. I have tried uninstalling some of the kexts, reinstalling FakeSMC, but still no luck. I posted this on the TMx86 forum, but like all the other topics I post on there, no response. If someone could PLEASE help me, that would much appreciated. Also, I am willing to back up my hard drive and reinstall Mavericks if someone could tell me where/how to back it up (NOTE: cannot detect USBs in Safe Mode).
  3. I got hold of an old 2009 Unibody 13-inch Pro, the 2.26 model. It's in great shape but doesn't power on properly. My guess is that it's the logic board, but being as expensive of a part as that is (and me being a broke-a** college student), I wanted to confirm the root of my issue before I plunge and make sure there isn't a more... economic fix. Here's the exact symptoms... - Unit responds when pressing power button as normal. Power light comes on solid and fans whirr into action, but it never goes further than that. No image or power to the display whatsoever. - hangs for a few seconds then abruptly powers back off again, making the hard drive clunk painfully. - Unit then powers BACK ON again and repeats the first part, but hangs indefinitely and does not power off again. Fan gradually begins to spin faster and faster. - during this whole time, the hard drive makes no read/write sounds whatsoever. It does spin up though. - I inserted a CD into the drive and it took, and now every time I power on it sounds like it's being read. Probably just the drive's firmware instincts though. - Unit does not respond to any keyboard commands such as target disk mode, etc, however I CAN reset both the PRAM and the SMC. Here's a link to a video of the cycle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZENwMamfsng Any insight is much appreciated. Cheers. EDIT: forgot to mention things I've tried... - unassembled entire unit and dusted/cleaned the {censored} out of it, incl. under heat sink - reseated RAM & all cable connections - other sticks of RAM - different HDD - ext. display
