Um what do you mean fully working?

As far as i am concerned if the sata dvd problem is not fixed then i dont see something new.If however this is fixed then contgrats since it was the only problem that Medevil's work had.

hmm.. my usb mouse had the same problem, it became jumpy after a while, but i solved this with just putting right values into smbios.plist, memory, memorytype, fsb and, put there MacPro3,1 instead of iMac9,1 and so on... got no sata dvd, so can't test this, if i have one i'll fix this issue  ;)

Then it is NOT FULLY functional as mentioned on the first post (before you edit it,which is good from your part and honest).The sata dvd problem is the one and only big problem Medevil's kext has so i ask again:

What more does your kext has to offer.I ask with no bad intention.I really want to find out what is new on this coz if there is nothing new i dont see any reason uninstalling medevil's kext.

 

If you have the knowledge to fix the sata problem then i suggest you ask from a friend of yours to lent you his sata dvd recorder since this is actually a big problem thus by fixing it you will actually give something back to the community.

well, my aim was to make full x64 kext with full x64 support plus x32 support... this was the only one aim for me. i even did'nt know that medevil's kext had those sata writing issues. when compiling it had about 20-25 warnings that i solved... except this i corrected everything that was connected to x64 native mode. and this is all. i trust myself more than anyone else, so i use my own kext, but not supernforceata or anv's applenforceata. it work perfect for me, have native x64 support, don't have errors. btw it is written in my first post that "nothing have been changed", so please make right decisions...if i get sata dvd i'll try to fix this issue =)

Hi,

fix this version also the slow boot bug (like nForceIOATAFamily.kext who is only available for 32bit)?

Because what helps 64 bit when the boott takes up a min.

Hi just wanted to say thanks for making the effort, it's always good when someone takes the time to try and fix something thats been left broken.

 

Looks like the one major biggie remaining is SATA dvd drives. THought it might be worth mentioning what happens incase you can think of something that might cause it.

 

It's strange since I installed 10.5.6 with my SATA DVD drive even though Disk Utility doesn't list it in the OSX installer.

 

the OSX profiler in utilities lists the DVD drive correctly and the drive shows in disk utility, the eject button on desktop works to open and close the drawer, but when I put a dvd in the drive locks up for a good 15 minutes and eventually says its empty.

 

In that whole time that the drive locks up, the burner doesn't show in profiler, and the eject button on desktop has the spinning color wheel when you mouse over.

 

I guess this is the problem everyone else with a SATA DVD drive is having problems with.

It does not work for me with MCP 67 0550:10de (nForce 630m i think).I used AppleVIAATA.kext and AppleNforceATA.kext but without x64 support.Can you recompile it with my chipset.Thank you!

I want to say thank you, your kext worked, while the slashack's one didn't.

 

After i upgrade from 3gb to 5gb, I keep get panics.

 

thanks again.

 

haven't got any panic anymore, but I can't boot with 64bit kernel.. I would get the still waiting for root. But 32-bit kernel is ok for now.

Are you sure you were booting into 64bit mode kernel mode?

I've never been able to get any of these to boot using the 64bit kernel. I need to use arch=i386
