NOTE: THIS IS ON A DV8

 

(btw there should be a better metthod but these are the steps I took during experimenting)

 

I used the MIIF (DV8_03.html) from 10.6.7.

 

1. After downloading and mounting the file above I mounted the '/Volumes/MIID/Installation/CIIF/CIIF_DV8-F.25_sp49106_v2.00.03.dmg'

 

2. From the mounted volume in step 1, I opened 'Extra/Maintenance/EnableAudio' (make sure your Lion partition is called

'Macintosh HD' before opening this)

 

3. I replaced all the files in the 'Extra' folder from my bootloader on my Lion partition with this file - Extra.zip - You need to put your 'mach_kernel' file here 'Extra/mach_kernel'

 

Note you may need an external mouse if it doesn't recognise your touchpad.

 

After your sound starts working, you can delete the 'Extra' folder use your original 'Extra' folder + settings.

 

If the method above doesn't work, try doing it backwards from step 3 to step 1 . Just experiment with it basically.

 

If you card is 230M then you need to add key GraphicsEnabler to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist file

 

 

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

<string>Yes</string>

 

I tried that and it still doesn't work :(

can anyone tell me if the ir sensor on their hac is recognized. in the hardware profiler it is located under usb in the hardware section. i'm trying to get a remote working for my xbmc setup, on my hac it's not showing up. i recently had to do a fresh install the old install was setup using older 1.5 mammoth guides and i'm pretty sure the ir sensor was listed. i used the dsdt i had before so i'm not 100% sure. if others are showing up on their machines then i'll need to get a clean dsdt and try to get amir to help me with his magic.

Ok, I have everything working except for 'Brightness' & 'Wifi' <- obviously :weight_lift:

 

Here is my 'Extra' folder (FOR DV8) =>Extra.zip

 

Note I am using 'MacPro3,1' because it work better for me

 

Hope it helps!

 

For Audio:

 

I installed the S/L/E files from here (Read "Post installation (4 Simple Steps)")

 

I also use the following code to enable my audio.

 

 

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x84\x19\xd4\x11|\x03\x76\x1d\x11|g' "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleHDA"

 

rename '/Volumes/Macintosh HD/...' to your mac hard drive partition name. (if it isn't already 'Macintosh HD')

 

Then restart your laptop :king:

You could try my DSDT, I have brightness working with GenericBrightness.kext in S/L/E

WIFI is working, but I put a different card comparing to the original one.

 

And this is for the battery AppleSmartBatteryManager

PLEASE! ANYBODY, HELP ME!

 

I still can not run my dv7t - 6100.

 

I have seen, that somebody asked about same model as mine. Please, anybody who run it, post dsdt and kexts which you used!

I installed osx on second partition and booting there using [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]-Legacy. But on other partition which is prepared by Mammoth method still no success. It stops at "..nanoseconds..". When I am using flag cpus=1 after booting display is going down. So problem seems to be in graphics.

Please anyone, who has same model running, help me what to do..

Hello everyone again. I have a DV8t like many of you, and I want to upgrade from 10.7.1 to 10.7.2 .

 

I see too many comments, and I got somewhat lost.

 

Can someone tell me the step by step process to upgrade?

 

I understand to install the update from the updates. Then many of you say to use both the original kernel & Taptum's kernel together? And only one core will work?

 

And then, update the kexts...

 

@Chrispypatt, How did you manage to be cool with graphics enabler = No?

Hello there again. I am still stuck whit a most but starting to get some idea how things work around.

 

First question would be that will i get my own dsdt file from using Ubuntu live Cd by following what is told here ? -> http://tinyurl.com/7hqf8bg

 

It seems that there is no use for me whit, " HP_DVx_i7_patch_2011_09_29 by NIXin " because i have i3 processor, right ?

 

Do i have to patch my that dsdt file afterwards somehow if i want install Lion 10.7.2 ? Or would that what i might manage get from Ubuntu live Cd be enough ?

 

Also little confused about installation, how do i put it all together if i have Mac OSX Lion 10.7.2. (retail), no updates between ?

 

There isnt any special naming (MIID & XIID) and partitioning like in orginal Mammoth Method guide there was if i want to install Lion ?

 

Do i only need tools from Amer Lion MIID V1.0 and use those to get my installation media working ?

 

Somekind of step by step guide would really make me happy or even a tip that what should be my next step. Is it making that dsdt file whit ubuntu live cd ? ?

 

Thanks.

Update: I actually updated to 10.7.2... I used chrispypatt's DSDT and taptun's kernel...

 

The sound doesn't work, although I took the voodoohda that chrispypatt posted.

 

I don't care that much though, because I use an external m-audio firewire interface, and I get real sound !!!

 

I have all adobe cs5.5 installed, latest Logic pro for music, office 11, and many more programs, I used them in good action, and they work cool...

 

Although I had crushes with adobe after effects CS5.5 on windows, on hac (lion) it is cooool !!!!!

 

The bluetooth still asks me where is my keyboard, but I will remove the kexts again, to get rid of this...

 

I am well satisfied that on the .plist, I have graphics enabler = No, and everything is cool

 

Thank you all guys.

Honestly I cannot tell you how I got it booting without graphics enabler, I may have used old graphics kexts but I am not sure, If you tell me what kexts are all for graphics, I can post mine. Picture of my system is below:

Actually for the bluetooth, I went to preferences - bluetooth - advanced, and I unchecked the keyboard and mouse assistant (when they cannot be found, and everything is cool with that now too.

I do not know.

I can run OS X from [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] Legacy in safe mode, without right graphics and via one core.

Nobody helps me.

Hey guys - I have a DV6-3181NR and I'm booting Lion 10.7.2. It has an i7-720qm and ATi 5650 graphics. So far I have all 8 threads and native power management working. However I can only get audio to work through VoodooHDA and the headphones port doesn't work. Also sleep is a no go even though power managment is working with AppleLPC loaded. I've tried editing the dsdt to fix these issues up with no success so if I post my clean DSDT could someone take a look?

 

Ok so apparently Taptun is the person to go to - so please if you read this Taptun I'd be extremely grateful!
