ideneb install went really well, installed RadeonHD and touchscreen kext from page 6, working perfectly then I ran system update... long :) download and finally get to the point of installing updates, Reboot my tx2 and landed on blue screen ;) instead of desktop, any idea why?

 

EDIT: nevermind, 2nd reboot seem to get through this time, werid, on the other hand, i have no sound, i even selected Apple Azalia Audio, VoodooHDA doesn't work either.

For audio , refer this link.

Sorry i shoud have added that, to fix the mouse, problem, you need to download "plist editor"

 

and edit info.plist in the radeonHD kext, and chang "hardwae cursor" to what ever it is not on now. eg. if it is set to true then change it to false and vice versa.

Thanks jupitersmoon. Now my cursor seems to be normal.

 

For keyboard and trackpad issue, disconnected my external keyboard and mouse during installation. And as usual selected the old Apple PS2 driver.

 

Whenever I shutdown or restart, It gets hung and I have to power it down by pressing the power button continously. Please help me fix this as well.

 

EDIT : For Keyboard issue, we need to select old Apple PS2 driver during installation as quoted by Jupitersmoon.

where is it hanging, do you still see your apple wallpaper? try going in to disk utility and repair permissions.

it also sounds like you might need the laptop power manager, i use the vodoo one although it tells me my battery is low sometimes, other than that it works. I've not had that problem.

 

one strange problem is that i dont have any trackpad gestures eg double tap, this i can tolerate, the strange part is that if i just restart and go in to windows 7, i have no trackpad gestures there either unless i power off and back on.

I see my apple wallpaper when it's hung.

 

I used Disk Utility and fixed the permissions but even after that it is stuck up during shutdown / restart.

 

For Power Management, I've selected Vodoo Battery Manager

still no sound ;) thinking it may have something to do with selection i made during setup?

 

This is what I did to get the sound working..

  1. During Setup don't select any audio drivers.
  2. Download alc268_january08.zip
  3. Unzip alc268_january08.zip
  4. Install TarugaACL268Installer5
  5. Install AppleHDA.kext using Kext Helper
  6. Reboot
  7. Goto System Preferences -> Sound -> Output
  8. Choose Internal Speakers or Headphones as per your preference. Close it when done.
  9. Now your sound device should work for sure.

All the best...

I think some bluetooth related stuff is responsible for this.

I created new account. Again, no success

 

My BIOS version is F21, the latest one. ;)

 

I tried iPortable in my Core 2 Duo processor laptop (using a external HDD). It was really good. Finally, I thought of applying AMD patch and trying it in my TX2.

 

For the first time, I wanted to see what happens if I boot without AMD patch.

 

Yessss, I booted successfuly and reboot also worked perfectly. ;) But Keyboard and trackpad didn't work. Anyhow, I'm using wireless keyboard and mice. That worked fine.

 

I think this can be resolved by just installing the old Apple PS2 driver.

Hey Guys.

 

I also a proud owner of the tx2 and i read your post very carfully.

 

Im going to install osx on my tx2 but i didnt find a complete how to. I tried to start on the first pages but because of the updates etc. i got confused.

 

Perhaps anybody can write a "How to in detail" for the tx2 with the "uptodate software" because there are only old how to's on the net.

 

I say Thank you once already!

CrazyMacGuy, I followed your guide, and all went really well and thanks! I just tried out latest RadeonHD kext released on 12/18 however hardware cursor is still an issue, I really hope they'll get around share memory stuff soon. Once again thank for well written instruction and you should repost as guide under tutorials section of this forum.

 

two questions, Which kernel do you find the most stable Qoopz or Voodoo? I'm currently using Qoopz but haven't try out Voodoo tho. Secondly my tx2 seem to run hot with Mac OS X, but when I reboot into windows 7, it produce much less heat and better battery life than I would normally get with Mac OS X

 

EDIT: forgot to add one more question

Could you please share the link of the latest RadeonHD kext?

Intially I used Voodoo but now I'm using Qoopz.. I think Qoopz is more stable!

Yes! In Windows 7, I get more battery life and the heat produced is far less.

iPC and iDeneb are both compatible with TX2-1020us as far as my experience with both goes (had to reinstall many times for multiple reasons).

 

iMovie and garageband are not available in any of the Distros (iDeneb, iPC, iAtkos etc.) it is only availible in the iLife suite.

They might not even work due to the lack of QE/CI support on the tx2.

Hi guys, nice work so far...

 

Let me give u a short feedback of what i got so far and what i would really apreciate to have in future times...

 

1. Im running an europe version of a HP TX2

 

2. ideneb 1.6 is working so far, with qoopz kernel?

 

3. touch isnt working at all if i touch the screen cursor jumps to the upper left corner und the menu drops in...

also the iohidfamily.kext did not help... i mentioned it to calibrate my stylus pretty good

 

3.1 if i touch the screen with my fingers the the left mouse klick of my trackpad isnt working until i touch the screen with my stylus then my left mouse will continue working(sometimes the right mouseklick becomes the left very strange) and then the touchscreen wont recognize any touch

 

4. audio did not work in my home language :)

i had to switch from german back to english to get the sound tool in the system pref to to open...(otherwise im not able to switch the output to internal speakers) when it comes to german it wont start it always says loading and does nothing.. so i only had sound with my frontjacks :D

 

5.the resolution with the radionhd.kext is pretty origin... but the latest one wont work only one special kext is working

 

6.So i would love someone to help me...

maybe someone knows how to get the scrolling with the trackpad to work (i read something about voodoops2??) and maybe someone knows why i cant open my sound tool if i am in a diffrent language then english... i use an applehd.kext an the tarugaacl...installer from a previous post

 

ooO an maybe hibernate || sleep ??

 

thx :D

Snow Leo working well by following this guide exactly:

 

Snow Leo on Tx2z

 

Sound is kinda working - stuck at 1/2 volume and scratchy at best.

Wifi works well

Display driver from this thread works to enable 1200x800.

Mounting .dmgs works

Restart/shutdown works

Sleep does not work

Trackpad scrolls

 

Touch is not working. I tried IOHIDFamily.kext from this thread, but it doesn't work.

Kernel does not support on-the-fly binary patching. I tried Photo Booth - it doesn't work.

I know one can manually patch the main binaries - I've seen posts for QuickTime, iTunes. Sorry I don't have links.

 

iPhone SDK/ XCode works perfect. Haven't played with Interface Builder yet though.
