@el coniglio,

keep up the good work :P

One thing, how do I build it from src (got from svn)?

Hey valv, that link is just for the editor component I used in the project, you don't really need to get it as it is packed with the rest of the application. Oldnapalm posted the link just to give the proper credits. =D

 

We are sending a beta version for those who are interested and as soon as some hard testing is passed I'll post a public release.

This looks great! mayeb I can finlay patch my DSDT for my Bade 2! get some things working without kexts.

I hear that someone patched their DSDT for the Intel Bad Axe 2 mobo so well, they didnt need graphics,sound, nullcpu kexts.... Anyone else heard of this?

 

This DSDT editor looks amazing! very simple and easy to look at, hopefully easy to use!

Yep it is really easy to use if you have the patches already coded. In the zip there is a folder with some working examples (ASUS P5 Patches), if all are applied to a original extracted dsdt it will fix a bunch of issues. It could be applied from a single file containing all patches, making even more simple to the user. The patches inside the pack were tested for P5E, P5E Deluxe, P5K Premium and Maximus Formula.

 

As you can see in the examples, patches can (and may) be coded to avoid being applied more than once, so you can use a pack even if you already have applied part of it.

Really interesting!

One thought though, If when selecting a section it jumps to it by making the first line appear on the right pane as the first to show, it 'd ease its use. At first sight I didn't knew it did jump to the requested section, as it showed its first line at the bottom (last line to appear).

This is a great idea with the automated patching and could prove to be very popular.

Thanks for the hard work in creating it El Coniglio. Well done :D

Is it possible to compile it for windows? :D

You'd think it would work by extracting the jar files in the Resources folder from the app.

 

Yes I think it will work. It won't extract DSDT from IOReg or open an AML file instead of the DSL (it decompiles it if you select an AML file). The editor component support the Control + Something shortcuts by default, I just added the Meta (Command) + Something, so no problem with them. But try it, if it doesn't work I can check and build a version without the OS specific resources, so you can run it on Linux or Windows.

 

Edit: oldnapalm tested it on windows and worked. The simplest way is to create a ./lib with all jars but DSDTParser.jar and leave DSDTParser in ./ so you can run java -jar DSDTParser.jar (or double-click on the explorer) without any -cp parameters. I am going to check to make the dsdt extract work in linux and append iasl binaries for linux and windows, so most functions would work on all 3 OS.

 

Edit again: I tested and patches are not applying in windows cause of the \r windows uses in the line breaks. It will be fixed in the next release =)

Looks fantastic - for a dyslexic like me it will be most useful to gain some order to pages of code.

 

Many Thanks -_-

Looks WAY better than DSDTE, and both the automatic patching and device tree will be incredibly useful. Thanks for the great work!

 

EDIT: Spoke way too early. No system menu (tolerable) and no context menus (very f*cked up). Device tree is pretty much useless: the need to jump-unlock-edit-lock makes it nothing but a waste of time. I know these things seem small, but they're disproportionately annoying, even for a Java program. I hope they can be fixed somehow.

I understand your point. I see two possible solutions for the issue:

1. Remove the "toggle editable", but the tree will only refresh when you trig a button or shortcut;

2. Make a "node editor window" in a context menu, that allows you to edit a tree node, once the editing is done, the code is reparsed and tree refreshed

 

The main focus was the automated patching to help users who doesn't know how to apply a patch. The application isn't ready (compiling error handling missing) so bring your suggestions.

not tried the app yet but I like the sound of option 2.) :)

Almost any patch can be coded.

 

Here is the RTC patch (changes the last argument of the IO segment inside the device with _HID PNP0B00 to 0x02)

into device name_hid PNP0B00 code_regex (IO\s\((?:\s*[^,]+,\s*(?:\/\/\s.*)?\s*\n)+\s*)(\dx\d+)(,\s*(?:\/\/\s.*)?\s*\n\s*\)) replaceall_matched begin %10x02%3 end

The only problem what i see (using new patch files) is, that they are (for me :D ) near unreadable :D

Would be fine if the patch files could have an section in "normal text) so see what it does.
