Hi, I'm running 10.6.7 on a 1005HAB and I have a problem with the Wired LAN Card.

I've installed AttansicL1eEthernet.kext on my EFI partition and the Wired Card is getting a MAC Address, i'm getting cable connect/disconnect feedback, It's not receiving a DHCP address, I'm putting a static IP and can only ping localhost For everything else i get ping timeout and no route to host...

 

Everything else (wifi, audio, battery meter, graphics, sleep) works fine (except the volume hotkeys)

 

This are my kext installed on the efi patition:

 

AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext

AppelACPIPS2Nub.kext

AppleIntelGMA950.kext

AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext

AsusHotkeys.kext (does not work for me)

AttansicL1eEthernet.kext

EvOreboot.kext

fakesmc.kext

IO80211Family.kext

IOATAFamily.kext

IOAudioFamily.kext (audio dependecy)

IOGraphicsFamily.kext (graphics depency)

IOHIDFamily.kext (Asus hotkeys dependecy)

IONDRVSupport.kext (graphics dependency)

IONetworkingFamily.kext (network dependency)

IOUSBFamily.kext

NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

OSvKernDSPLib.kext (audio dependency)

PaltformUUID.kext

SleepEnabler.kext

VoodooHDA.kext

VoodooPS2Controller.kext

 

if anyone has a clue please post here

Hi

We probably have to modify the USB section to be more native as well as the PCI ones:) Inject the right device into our DSDT. I will try later this week.

 

Edit:

I injected PCI and USB to DSDT. PCI shows thing. But USB still does not act as it should, in fact it became worse. It does not reconnect after it resumes from sleep

 

There's definitely a DSDT tweak that works to prevent Sleep from un-mounting the USB drives forcefully and generating the error message on wake (I assume that's what this discussion is about but if I misunderstood, apologies). A search here at InsanelyMac will lead you to it.

 

From the little I read, the DSDT mod attempts to define the appropriate USB device controller as built in, so there's no forced un-mount (dismount?) and no error message. Though it's working, on system wake the USB performance seems to take a major hit. So a work in progress still, I think.

 

There's another route worth looking at, SleepWatcher, which works as advertised in that it gets the Finder to gently dismount any ejectable USB drives prior to sleep activating. So, no disk error risk and no error messages. It doesn't modify the USB controller status, so no performance hit.

 

Check out the Mac OS X Hints post by miketyson here for more info.

 

I use it and it works perfectly.

 

HTH and cheers,

Andy

Hi guys, I'm back from the dark side via a few months of Ubuntu, which has been fine, but there are a few things I miss in not using OSX, so am about to have another go at it. I think I'll be tackling it in exactly the same way as I did when I first succeeded. I've had only very limited success with the newer kexts that bmkx and mightycrown have added to the original guide and in subsequent posts, so I'm going back to basics. I only got as far as a successful upgrade as far as 10.6.4 IIRC, so its going to be a bit of a trial again.

 

I've read through the entire thread from the beginning because I can't really remember where I was at, at any stage along my path to netbook OSX joy, and will be following along again, whilst I do the thing. Kinda sad to see Ubuntu 11.04 go, its really maturing as an OS, and 11.10 is in alpha already, but OSX is my preferred system. and I want to keep using it now that I seem to have passed the point of no return on my capacity to buy new apple gear... my next desktop will be a hackintoshed PC, once my iMac is no longer able to do what I want it to.

 

Since Lion is only to be distributed via the app store, and will be irrevocably tied to your account I *may* upgrade the iMac, but I'll be staying on SL for the forseeable future, on the netbook. Netbook probably wont like Lion in any case. I decided to make the switch this week, because next week, I suspect its going to be all about Lion.

 

Wish me luck and good hackintoshing!

Well, I guess that there have been "under the hood" changes in the 1001HAkit.zip. I've done exactly as I did last year to get a successful install, but this time round, even with Baldrick45's dsdt.aml (because mighty crown's left me without a keyboard) I cannot update at all. All I get, whether I start with the HD or with the USB and then choose the HD, is an infinitely spinning NBI as its trying to do something. I've left it running this time for 20 minutes, and still..nothing except the spinner and the NBI I con in the middle of the screen.

 

I am in no way able to play with coding and scripting so I was relying on the original method and this now seems to be beyond me. I'll keep trying but the frustration of it all is really getting to me, big time. I appreciate all the work thats gone into it, but from about when bmkx came into it, I got lost. You guys are obviously able to dig into the innards of stuff, and I cannot. I don't care about deep sleep, I don't care about most of the intricacies of the system, I just want it to work within the limitations of my netbook.

 

Can anybody tell me what changes have been made to the kexts inside 1001HAkit.zip if any, and if there have been some, where can I get the older ones. I'm starting from 10.6.0 because thats what I have available to me, and I cannot update to 10.6.3 (and I don't have 10.6.2, just everything since then), I would even be happy to stay on 10.6 but without wireless, just don't really see the point.

 

Help please, if anybody is still about?

Does anyone get the wireless function by IO80211Family.kext and bluetooth originally working perfectly? I have tired that for two weeks....But it doesn't work ...I guess that one is my updated bios for newest or my bootloader is not from guide instead from netbookinstaller..

Could somebody help me to handle that? ;) (I am runing 10.6.6 but doesn't working perfectly for above question)

Does you get the wireless and bluetooth working on 10.6.6 or 10.6.7 ?

I've completely given up on this now, and bought myself a 13" Macbook Pro. I would have preferred to use my existing netbook but that was not to be. Farewell to those who gave me so much help in the early days, and thanks :unsure:

Hey guys sorry to ask this but I'm a bit unclear on what exactly needs to be done to update to 10.6.6. Im currently on 10.6.3 with everything working fine and i dont want to screw it up, but at the same time would really like to update. Would someone be able to explain it to me? I tried reading the tutorial but got a bit lost. cheers.

Hello

I have a problem with brightness function keys in my 1001HA. I've added PNLF to dsdt and I'm using AppleBackilght.kext, but the brightness keys are: Fn+Delete for decreasing brightness and Fn+Pause for increasing it. Any tips on how to fix this?

I've discovered a new problem.  Kext helper's "easy install" is now grayed out.  I dont get it.  

 

I keep giving up and then trying again, but I havent had a successful install with a functioning wifi since my first few attempts.  I wish that the original 1001HA kit was still available, and the other guide for installation still in existence (cant remember the link but its referenced earlier in the thread and just gets a 404)

 

Guess nobody is bothering with this any more, since theres been no responses to desperate queries...

Is your Wi-Fi Atheros or Ralink?
For trackpad and keyboard reinstall PS2 kexts, for sound install VoodooHDA.

This driver should work for the Wi-Fi
http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads/pcimpcicb-rt2860rt2790rt309x/
I kept using it and it should be fine. I remember I had 2 versions of the Ralink app, but I can't seem to find them now. 

For the rest, use 

https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=A3E424E1727C0C25!7135&authkey=!AKam3Rhn7sy6Ceo&ithint=folder%2czip

Remove AppleHDA and reboot before installing VoodooHDA.

Hi People,

 

I got 10.6.8 running on my girlfriends 1001HA and almost everything is working (sound, internet, graphics). The only thing that really gives me trouble is wake. Once the hack wakes the HDD spins up and the system starts, but the screen stays black (unlit, i presume). I know the system works because i can shut down the machine via hotkey combination. Now i know from looking into this matter that this a quite common problem with the GMA 950 and can be overcome with the right DSDT. I took a look at my DSDT, but this is way beyond my level and i´m afraid of breaking things, instead of fixing them.

Can someone perhaps provide me with a working DSDT (meaning sleep/wake)? Speed-Stepping and Bluetooth would be a bonus...

I have 1 gb of memory, graphics is identified as 0x27ae.

 

Help appreciated,

 

Olli
