I might still have that one somewhere. If you have used any further BIOS versions do not count on any luck getting your GPU fan to work outside of MS Windows.

 

BIOSES 1.7, 2.1 and 2.4 on [RS]

 

Good luck!

Well, those bioses were working fine for me and I've got P100-217. The BIOSes are all the same for US/Euro models. Keep in mind that the downgrade might not work from XP/Vista itself but only when you will use a bootable CD. Toshiba is known for not letting people to downgrade easily.

 

Be careful! As this could easily damage you lappy!

Another update:

 

What I have found out today is that my speakers are willing to play! At least for a fraction of a second.

When unplugging headphones there is always a bit of sound coming out of the speakers.

 

I have had a look at codec dump, it seems that NodeIDs are set up correctly in Info.plist but there is still one bit missing somewhere.

 

I thought that maybe codec verbs or pinconfigurations...

 

Any ideas?

 

// PinConfiguration look like a cosmetic thing allowing proper data to be shown in SysPreps but who da hell knows for sure...

// So far the HP jack and Mic jack are working, Internal speakers are kind of partial, no line-in jack as of yet.

Hi

I managed to prepare USB stick with Snow, but installer stuck after EHCI could not take control from bios. And repeats message "Still waiting for root device"

I know that IOUSBFamily is kext that I had to use on 10.5.x but when I replace that from Leo to Snow it makes a loooot of errors, and still cannot boot to installer.

If any one could manage what to do with that kext I'll be very glad.

 

Cheers.

@ johnLee, check in the BIOS if LAN got disabled. If it did, reenable and boot. If LAN does still not work, reapply your BIOS backup and boot X to see if you have LAN back. Then simply put the included DSDT.aml to root of your X partition, reboot, and you should have sound.

 

@ mentorek: congrats :P

Hi BugsB! It is very nice to see You again!

 

My LAN works stable ONLY when IONetworkingFamily.kext is in Extra folder... I'm using patched DSDT (by mentorek), but it seems that it doesn't help with LAN.

 

Still no sound...

 

With great respect, jazzminos.

Anybody successfully applied the 10.5.8 update? I have no graphics at all after the 10.5.8 Delta Update with my Nvidia GeForce 7600 GO.

 

When I press the power button and then R the machine restarts, so the OS itself is responsive. It is just that there is no graphical UI at all.

 

I applied my 10.5.7 Extensions backup --> same thing, so it seems to be something outside the Extensions folder (Framebuffer? OpenGL?).

 

Does anybody have an idea, or experience with this 10.5.8 update NVidia graphics bug?

 

Thanks,

Bugs

 

 

@ jazzminos: don't give up .. ;)

Thanks a lot for all this work you guys, I really appreciate it.

 

Everything is working great except for one thing. The wifi. I am running on a toshiba P105-S6104. What card would I need to buy to install this in my laptop? I tried looking here but i'm still a little lost.

Hi BugsB,

 

It was working for me flawlessly. Before I got 10.5.8 I think I had cleaned up my Extensions folder to remove all the {censored} that doubles (decryptors, injectors etc.)

I might try to look for my Extensions folder zipped somewhere if you're interested.

 

Cheers,

hi mentorek, good to hear from you B)

 

yes, If you could upload your working 10.5.8 XTs.zip that would be great. I am running SnowLeo now with everything working apart from PCMCIA and partial sound with good ole Azalia on my internal HD, and (involuntarily back to) 10.5.7 on one of my externals, for which the .8 XTs would come in very handy.

 

So you are running Snow now, too, I guess?

 

@ bozukarob: you need a miniPCIe wifi card. Best to look into the LAN/WIFI section of the forum and see what people suggest there. I swapped mine two years ago so that is not current anymore, see my sig.

I'll try to locate the .8 XT dir tomorrow.

 

 

No I'm not on OSX at all. Went back to Windows - at first XP, now running 7 - I have to say it's working perfect.

 

I consider going back to OSX for some time in coming weeks as I plan to restart my ObjC development.

 

BTW. If you happen to know a good Snow installation guide, feel free to send me a link or two :)

 

cheers,

I'm waiting for a good SL release... Uphuck iKAROS, for example... I've read about it on their forum... And it seems that not everything is ready for 10.6 on x86 platform.

 

With great respect, jazzminos.

I installed SnowOSX Universal 10 6432GM v3.5 from Leo onto another partition, but instead the included bootloader I am using PC_EFI 10.3 (Cham. Bootloader rc2 installer, then copied boot --> root). It's a good release. When you google it you will find lots of dl links (torrent and filehoster) :P

 

kexts used from Leo:

- IOUSBFamily.kext with modded EHCI (Slice or AnV, does not matter)

- IOPCIFamily.kext 10.5.6 from Chun Nan

- good ole Azalia

for everybody here still not having sound with Azalia: there has been some breaking development concerning automatic DSDT patching.

 

I just dropped my MoBos original 4.7 DSDT as created from DSDT patcher GUI onto mitch_de's iASLme http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=189272, copied the produced dsdt.aml onto /, restarted and BOOM had sound (in SnowLeo, but should be the same in Leo) ;)

 

Go for it, gusy, and post results.

 

@ mentorek: might even improve or solve your current state, with Azalia and/or HDA

Hi guys,

 

I've installed the SnowOSX (or whatever it's called) distro on my Tosh. Works OK.

There are a few issues though:

 

  1. There are some bugs/issues with display drivers (nVidia) - I get white stripes blinking for half a second or so. Not all the time. It happens when using OpenGL or other gpu/cpu intensive functionalities (esp. watching movies).
  2. The method to update DSDT using mitch_de's application is not an option for me. It just kills my audio - maybe I should start using AppleHDA from SL?
  3. I cannot make my touchpad to work with tapping on it. Moving cursor around works flawlessly, tapping - no go. Any suggestions?
  4. Very long shutdown/reboot procedure - screen gets dark but Tosh is not going down for another 2-5 minutes!

For some reason my Bluetooth started to work with SL. I don't know why but it is present after each reboot.

 

BTW. is 10.6.1 update safe for our machines?

 

That's all for now.

 

cheers,

mentorek

hi mentorek,

 

that's good news all together. Here some details:

 

1. Nvidia: similar here, but very occasionally. Nothing that bothers me

2. dsdt: there is s.th. fundamentally different about your Toshi's dsdt compared to others, but you know that

3. tp: never tried tapping

4. sd/rs: I have spent quite some time figuring all the correct kexts and kext versions out, and where they have to go (some S/L/E, some Extra/E), and got it all working now 100% fine. I have been working on a package release with short install guide + kexts which will be ready soon.

 

10.6.1: yes, safe

 

wake-up from sleep: my dsdt had to be corrected even more for wake-up from sleep to work (would remain at a blank screen after wake-up) ....
