ALC888 AppleHDA.kext for Moutain Lion (10.8.2+10.8.3 version)

Recommended Posts

I have an ALC888 audio chipset (VIA audio).

I decided to patch up the latest AppleHDA.kext (10.8.2 version).

If it doesn't work for you try changing the ID in the AppleHDAController binary to suit your PCI ID (not codec id ofcourse as that is ALC888 or 0x10EC0888)

You can get your audio controller PCI ID from IORegistry or lspci

Next look for and change:

Find
DE10E30B
Change to
XX (vendor upper byte)
XX (Vendor lower byte)
XX (Device upper byte)
XX (Device lower byte)
Example:
06118832
=
0x32881106 (allready supported as it is my audio card, VIA VT1708/A audio)

DSDT edit is also needed...

            Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
            {
                Store (Package (0x04)
                {
                    "layout-id",
                    Buffer (0x04)
                    {
                        0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
                    },
                    "PinConfigurations",
                    Buffer (One)
                    {
                        0x00
                    }
                }, Local0)
                DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
                Return (Local0)
            }

This is the _DSM method for injection layout-id 12

Result works great...

I'll be updating this codec with each release of OS X ;)

No assertion errors or so...

If you all post your controller ID's I can implement them in each new release of the kext

Screenshot under System Profiler below... :D

EDIT: Update... just hacked the 10.8.3 kext... pleased to announce it works well ;)

Hi Andy :)

 

Glad to see this topic!

 

I tried the attached kext but there's no audio... So I have to follow you steps.

Could you please tell me where exactly in the IORegistry I have to search for the PCI ID of my audio controller (ALC 888) and how it should look like?

Then, do I have to search for DE10E30B in the attached kext?

 

My DSDT section is different from yours...

{

}
}, Local0)

Do I have to replace mine with your example?

 

Thanks in advance for your time help :idea:

Layout-id

0x0c, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00

For using my controller id

device-id

0x88, 0x32, 0x00, 0x00

vendor-id

0x06, 0x11, 0x00, 0x00

Try it...

My DSDT is different, too.

 

I dont do too many DSDT edits, so please forgive me if I got this all screwed up

Hi, Andy!

 

Will your kext be compatible with the Via VT-1705 CODEC?

 

All the best!

If the codec is ALC888 compliant: yes

Use my tool to get your codec id and report back please ;)

Hi!

 

Which tool? Where can i find it?

 

Best regards!

getcodecid in the developers corner.

You need voodoohda or applehda and then you can get the codec id of that via audio.

This works with HDAEnabler? For those without DSDT. Nice job man :)

Yes.

Layout-id = 12 (0x0C)

You can use HDAEnabler ;)

Download IORegistryExplorer.

Check for AZAL and in dsdt rename it everywhere to HDEF.

If you don't have AZAL and have VoodooHDA installed check which pci device has it attached.

There are numbers behind it.

@2 means

Name (_ADR, 0x00020000)

@2,1 means

Name (_ADR, 0x00020001)

You can add the device... ;)

So in my case I have to consider the PCI0@0, right?

Then I'll remove the AppleHDADisabler and VoodooHda and install your patched AppleHda, if I got it right.

 

Thanks

So in my case I have to consider the PCI0@0, right?

Then I'll remove the AppleHDADisabler and VoodooHda and install your patched AppleHda, if I got it right.

 

Thanks

HDEF@18

Thus:

Device (HDEF)

{

Name (_ADR, 0x00180000)

 

Dsm method here...

}

What's wrong is our codec: it's very hard to get it working with OSX! And i've been trying, and even with the help of really qualified people, like Mirone, it's being a pain in the OS, if you forgive-me the lousy pun.

 

All the best!

VoodooHDA should work with this CODEC without any issues, i myself used the latest version of it both in 10.7.5 and 10.8.2. Had to ditch it because i need HDMI audio.

 

All the best!

 

Worked like a charm, Thanks !!!!!

 

 

For those who can't change volume with VT1705, simple change this value under info.plist

 

<key>VoodooHDAEnableVolumeChangeFix</key>
<false/>

to


<key>VoodooHDAEnableVolumeChangeFix</key>
<true/>
