Finally I've got my Sony VAIO VPCEB4C5E works good with OS X 10.8 (updated to 10.8.4)!
Only ethernet and card reader not work, but I'm working on it.

By the way I've putted all my work, with some istructions (see the README!.txt) in a dropbox folder.
There's also a txt with all the hardware and related Vid&Pid

If is needed, dump your own DSDT, ACPI and other tables with AIDA64.

I'll update it every time I'll update something on my Hackintosh.

Here's the link: https://www.dropbox....56pq/uQI_SEcd1d (Revision 1.8)

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
Do NOT use SMBIOSEFI.kext on 10.8.3, it cause kernel panic and OS X will not boot!
<- Kext removed

If you have some trouble or can help me to improve it feel free to reply to this thread. :D

Works:
- QE/CI!
- WebCamera
- Bluetooth
- WiFi (by puttin' Vid&Pid in the original Apple kext)
- Audio (With Voodoo HDA) [but sometimes sound crappy <- Seems this doesn't happens anymore]
- Keyboard
- Trackpad (as mouse, for now)
- Volume buttons
- Wireless switch (not fully tested, but for now seems ok)
- Power button
- DVD/BD drive (my machine have a BD Writer manufactured by Pioneer, but not tested if can burn discs yet)
- About this Mac (Thank you artur-pt (10.8.2)! / Thank you apianti for new Clover (10.8.3)!)
- Sleep (seems ok, but hibernation not works, so do not remove the battery or let it fully discharge!)

- iCloud, iMessage, AppStore (see the How to!)
- HDMI! (But, for now, without audio :( )

- VGA port, but by plugging in BEFORE boot OS X (You could have glitches on main LVDS if you change some display parameters or resolution)

Not works:
- Ethernet (by adding Vid&Pid in the original Apple kext OS X recognize it but does not connect)
- Card Reader
- Bright buttons
- DVD Player (crash but VLC or XBMC works good) [Must do other tests]

Known Problems:
- The accelleration seems working a bit bad, FlashPlayer is lagging and the UI sometimes lag... <- Just reinstalled OS X directly from 10.8.3 and seems work good now. Maybe was an issue during various updates, or maybe a my fault while modifying some kexts related to the VGA.
- OS X cannot recognize RAM modules, so "About this Mac" crash. Also "System Information" say there's an error about Memories... Dunno why! ç_ç <- Fixed with latest Clover (r1344), you don't need SMBIOSEFI.kext anymore!

Many updates! Check it out!

Also updated to 10.8.4 without problems, I had just to update one kext (IO80211Family.kext).

 

Cheers!

Hi jack, can you post the model of your webcam?

Is the embedded one.

Should be: Sony Visual Communication Camera (VID_5986&PID_01A5&REV_2502&MI_00)

In the folder there is a txt file with all the HW on my Vaio, with all the VIDs and PIDs. :)

Thanks for your information with Clover to solve "About This Mac" problem.

Indeed, I've tried clover, and it works great.

 

However, when I use Clover I can not boot my Windows partition anymore.

Do you have the same problem?

 

LegacyBoot in Legacy BIOS is still pain in the ass over Clover.

Thanks!

 

Also, for the AR9285 we can inject DSDT as below.

Never had a problem to boot Windows, neither Linux (I have a triple boot).

Firstly I've installed Windows, in a primary partition, in secondary OS X, and after, in an extended partition, Linux. Booted OS X thought the Chameleon present on the USB Pendisk Installer and installed Clover in the MBR (boot0fs). Formatted two times, all worked ever good.

If you need more information just feel free to ask!

 

Thanks for the DSDT patch, where/how I can put? :o

There's also something for the Ethernet port?

Thanks for your info. Let me try the clover. 

 

It's a dsdt wifi patch. With this DSDT wifi patch, you do have to modify the kext.

Ethernet is still problem in our machine.

 

I would like to share the modified AppleHDA.kext, I use in my 10.8.4, with layout id 86.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/78589781/AppleHDA.kext.zip

Hope you can get rid of voodooHDA with this file.

 

edit: No luck on the clover. Neither boot0af nor boot0ss.

Still showing "Boot Windows in Legacy HD2" in the GUI menu.

Thank you for the kext, but seems not works. I'll do more tests in future.

I've dropped in the folder some instruction how I made the triple boot, maybe could help you.

And how to simply get the UUID to make iCloud, AppStore and iMessage (but could not) works.

 

By the way also for me the Windows partition is labeled as "Legacy HD", I think is a Clover issue.

 

Please can you explain me how to use that DSDT patch? I cannot modify my original DSDT because is full of errors and bugs, so is possible to apply "on-fly"?

Thanks.

On DSDT, it's easy. The key is the DSDTFixer. It can fix a lot of error.

Then I would suggest you to use DSDT Editor to inject AR9285, USBFix, BatteryFix, EDID, AppleHDA layoutid....

If you should still have any problem, I can send you my DSDT.

 

The AppleHDA.kext is working. Just inject the layout ID 86 to DSDT.

With this file, I have HDMI digital audio output.

 

Also, I have no problem in VGA output. It seems like you have some problem on the file below.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/78589781/ATI5000Controller.kext.zip

I use Hoolock as FB.

 

Basically, OS X runs pretty good on my vaio EB17, the only problem is Clover Windows Boot.

After read your instruction, it seems like I have to reinstall all the OS on my SSD.

By the way, what is boot0fs?

Unfortunately my DSDT have many crosslinks and cannot be fixed. I've tryied many fixer but the only result is that OS X cannot bootup anymore, so I cannot touch my DSDT...

Our models are differents (right?), thats implies that our DSDT is different.

But I would give another try, can you link me a good DSDTFixer (the one you used for your Vaio)?

Thank you.

This is the DSDTFixer you are looking for.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/78589781/DSDTFixer.zip

 

Basically, both models use the same DSDT.

Due to EDID injected in DSDT, mine DSDT may not work in your machine.

However, I am pretty sure this DSDTFixer can fix crosslink error in your DSDT.

Added a new config.plist to match the new Clover builds.
The old config.plist was named "oldconfig.plist", if needed.

 

PS: DO NOT UPGRADE TO OS X 10.8.5, IT HAVE SERIOUS ISSUES!

I had some problems, like MANY real Mac users. The WiFi card could not be recognized anymore (WiFi: no hardware detected).

 

You can try to use the 10.8.4 zipped kext, should work fine.

Cheers. :)

      Hi, there
      My desktop hackintosh cannot enter the Sleep Mode.
      I mean it can enter the sleep mode for a few seconds and it will automatically wake up itself.
      How can I fix this issue.
      Thanks for your help.

      Ciao ragazzi, volevo presentarvi il nostro nuovo gruppo telegram (fatta da me e qualche amico) che condividiamo qui grazie all'autorizzazione gentilmente offertaci dallo staff.
       
      Questo gruppo è fatto per potersi aiutare a vicenda su hackintosh usando solo ed esclusivamente il metodo VANILLA, come dal tronde si fa qui su insanely, lo scopo è quello di fornire aiuto rapido per chi ha problemi ad installare mac sul proprio pc.
       
      il gruppo lo trovate qui: https://t.me/hackintoshalia
       
      Nota: non siamo affiliati e non siamo un gruppo ufficiale di insanelymac, siamo un gruppo a parte, ma grandi fan di questa commiunity e questo forum, di cui condividiamo i principi e le idee.

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create Mac OS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the Mac OS installer apps, it is capable to create a Mac OS installer on a drive completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides also to you some customization features and a better management of the hall macOS isntall media creation process
       
      Allows you to create easily a macOS install media without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is you want to use it on a Mac.
       
      Features:
        - Simple to use UI that allows you to easily start the macOS install media creation process
        - It can work with every Mac OS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside of it's resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers)
        - You can use any drive or partition you want that can be erased and is at least 7 GB of size
        - Works on Mac OS recovery, so you can create a macOS install media from a bootable macOS installer or from the macOs recovery, and you can use TINU to install macOS too.
        - All vanilla, the macOS install medias created with this tool are 100% vanilla, just like you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in the terminal, with also some extra optiona features
        - Open source, you will know what this program does on your computer and also you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code
        - Does not requires to do anything of special first, just open the program
        - No need to go in disk utility first, TINU can format your drive for you
        - Uses recent and more modern APIs and SDKs and Swift 3 language
        - Transparent graphics style available (use alt + s on the keyboard or View->Use transparent style)
        - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without needing for an update
        - Advanced section, to customize your macOS install media
        - Installer customization: Kernelcache/prelinkedknerel and boot files replacement (a feature that can be handy while dealing with old Macs or with beta installers when you need to mod or change the boot files some times)
        - Clover EFI folder installer
       
        Features that are planned for some future versions:
        - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool (TINU can already mount EFI partitions from version 2.0, but a dedicated section which allows to mount every EFI partition in the system will be added)
        - Install clover and configure clover
        - Install kexts inside the kexts folder of clover
        - Clover drivers customization
        - Use custom dsdt in clover
        - integrated pre-made clover config templates database from a remote and open repository
        - Support for other languages, at least Italian   Rquirements:  - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer)  - A drive or a free partition of at least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer  - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage device in your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media)   Note that this app is under the GNU GPL v3 license so any reuse of the source code must follow the license's terms   Latest stable TINU release:   Download the app:                                https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases   View the source code:                            https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU       Frequently asked questions about TINU:  https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs     NOTE: if you have problems with your USB installer of 10.13.4 or newer version not being detected by clover you have to use the latest clover and if it still does not detectets your usb installer you have to remove the invivible file called .IAPhysicalMedia located into the root of the usb installer. This issue is caused by a changement in the apple's createinstallmedia, don't blame TINU for that, TINU does only uses the installer creation method from apple, which has been changed by appleitself, causing this problem for hackintosh users some times, this issue should be resolved in the latest versions of clover which will no longer require that you do changements to let your usb dive to be detected, a setting to do this fix automatically in tinu is also present TINU in the adavnced settings, starting from the version 2.0 of the app. I leave also some screenshots as well
