Hi!

 

I have gone thru the guide twice, once under OS X, once under Windows, but I still get the same error. Would you mind to fix that for me?

My DSDT.aml after Step #2

You must add patch for dtgp

I'm trying this on my laptop. In my dsdt there isn't any Device (HUBN) so neither PR1x's.. Any tips?

 

 

I was trying to follow the guide for my laptop (Asus UX32A) and I'm in the same situation. 

Does anyone know what to do?

Thank you to the OP for this guide, it perfectly fixes all my problems with USB!

My platform is Intel native and I was using Zenith kext to enable multiplexing on 10.10.

 

Looooots of bugs with that kext, including:

 

- Very often devices do not work when first plugged, and have to be plugged again in another port to work

- USB devices very slow to be recognised sometimes (usb audio cards, for example)

- Delayed shutdown (computer shuts down but stays powered for another 10 secs with black screen before shutting down)

- Sudden wake from sleep in certain conditions

 

This DSDT patch, instead, is perfect. Thank you!

Hi, i have a doubt...

The part about PR11 and following I find it under the device EHC1 both in device EHC2, I must add "Name (MUXS, "XHCA")" even in device PR11 and following under EHC2?

Now i've applied the code under EHC1 section only, and all works well..

A question for you all:

This patch works perfectly, but sometimes when I go into standby the USB ports remain powered.

It seems that if I put the computer to sleep early after boot, the ports stay powered, and if I put it after some time they correctly power down during sleep.

 

Any ideas?

good news people, I was able to patch the DSDT (lacking HUBN) of an HM76 laptop (asus) to enable usb 3.0 super speed, however when I tried to plug an usb 2.0 device into the usb 3.0 port the system freezed, maybe it's a problem related to what ports I named MUXS. I will make a new post regarding this patch so maybe someone can look into it and help.

How did you get to work without without HUBN? I tried to get it to work but couldn't and the kext is too buggy for me. USB 3.0 is the last thing I need to get my fully working hackintosh. :D I'd like to see how you did it to get to work at least, maybe together we could dig deeper and get it working for both of us properly. That'd be great. :D

Thanks to the Op for this guide. These dsdt edits helped get rid of the 'not enough power to usb port' error message in the boot log. Though I was wondering about the structure of OS specific conditional statements as I plan on multibooting and want a different code path for Darwin vs Windows. Is this for instance correct:

            Store (0x07D0, OSYS)
            If (CondRefOf (\_OSI, Local0))
            {
                If (_OSI ("Darwin"))
                {
                    //darwin code
                }

                If (_OSI ("Linux"))
                {
                    //linux code
                }

                If (_OSI ("Windows 2001"))
                {
                    //windows code
                }

Is there also an 'if else' way of putting it?

 

Thanks.

I integrated my dsdt into my rom bios so not just OS X would see it or use it.

 

Extremely bad idea! Looks like you are looking for trouble with your computer...  :no:

 

Mieze

I have dual bios and I'm not afraid to test the limits of what can be done!

 

For what it's worth been playing around with ozmosis..

 

I feel like the other Rob Lowe whose looking for trouble. Don't be like the other me..

My usb issues are strange. 

 

On a Z77x-UD3H. 

Using the genericusb kext, and the gux-dever-usb/gux-no-idle flags. Other than that it's a pretty minimal config with Clover I believe (new to Clover). I'll attach it in case anyone wants to look at it =P.

 

But anyways, sometimes a port just stops working, even though they all can work. Furthermore after sleep it's very likely one will stop working. Also, after sleep some stuff unmounts, mainly my kb/mouse which is annoying. The latest revelation is that moving my mouse to my monitor's hub allowed to remain connected, which is strange because it's still connected to a USB 3 connection at the back of the board (My board has no rear USB 2.0 ports). Ugh... USB should not be this hard to get it work haha.

 

Other notable settings:

In bios: CPU PLL overvoltage disabled. XHCI auto and also tried enabled. XHCI/EHCI hand-off enabled. 

Tried sudo pmset - a standby 0

and sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

 

Not sure what else to try next besides the dsdt edits in the OP. 

config.txt

GA-Z77X-UD3H has both Intel USB3 & VIA VL800 USB3. Have you tried using a patched AppleUSBXHCI kext instead of GenericUSBXHCI (you can use Clover patching): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/150-patched-appleusbxhci/

 

Also, can you post an IOReg dump using IORegistryExplorer?

Alright, trying patching the Apple kext instead, will post results ( fingers crossed).

 

IOReg dump, I think I did it right:

EnzoFXIOReg.zip

Alright, well I *think* things are a bit better...

 

At first I thought it was working great, no crashes. Peripherals such as kb/mouse and USB sound card were working immediately after wake (not disconnecting). So I thought it was a great sign. However USB flash drives still disconnect. I've also realized there's a difference between the Intel USB ports vs the VIA ones. The VIA ones at one point weren't detecting any usb drives. Weird. Furthermore once I started actually using my USB HDD enclosure it caused a USB sound issue I had before. Where sound went out suddenly with Quicktime. Though this time relaunching QT seemed to fix it, as before I had to completely restart as it was system wide...

 

My only takeaway thus far: USB Drives are a different animal than just getting my peripherals to work. I think peripherals are mostly working as intended so that's great. My USB enclosure caused 2 crashes in the short time it was connected. The KP report doesn't seem to suggest to it was USB related:

It just seems unstable when USB drives are connected at this time.

Could it be power related? I noticed Clover has a setting to give devices more voltage or something. Not sure what to try next. 

  • 2 weeks later...

Ok so further testing... (just takes me a while as I rarely have the time)

 

USB 2.0 Flash drive works in the VIA USB 3.0 ports. However USB 3.0 External Enclosure doesn't mount when connected to the same VIA ports.

 

USB 3.0 Enclosure works with Intel USB 3.0 ports. However USB 2.0 Flash drives does not.... 

 

Again, USB Mouse/All Peripherals? Work fine in all ports... This is just strange to me. At least I now have enough ports working (Bought a 4 ports USB 2.0 Header PCI bracket) that I can get anything to work one way or another. Stability.. I'll get back on testing that.

 

 

I did switch Atheros kext, thanks @TheRacerMaster. 

 

Edit: Well no crashes so far, so overall solid.

GUIDE UPDATED! SEE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST UPDATE #2 and #3!!!

Hello hackintoshers!

This thread will help you to enable USB 3.0 on 7 Series motherboards with Ivy Bridge CPUs. This editing work is based on forum member Mieze's job; she's the mind behind all of this stuff. It's important to note that is a work in progress, I personally tested it with full success on Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WiFi, Zotac Z77- ITX WiFi and Asrock Z77E-ITX, so hopefully most of Z77 and H77 boards can support this.

Due to the fact that on pre-7 series motherboards USB 3.0 was not always fully supported, this method allows Intel chipset USB 3.0 ports to work properly with any kind of device (3.0 and backward to 2.0 and 1.0)
Assuming that you have a Z77 or H77 board with Ivy Bridge processor (Sandy Bridge CPUs or older don't support USB 3.0, so this guide is not for you, sorry <--- Bad guess!) I guess you already have a dsdt to get HDMI Audio working properly. If yes, skip the step #1 and step # 2 and jump directly on step #3. If not, follow this guide from step #1.


Tools

All you need is:
- Internet access
- A program to extract and edit DSDT like DSDT Editor
- A working Mac or Hackintosh
- Coffee, cigarettes, time and patience: I did need all of them!




Step #1 - Getting DSDT patches
This first step allow you to get the patches in order to have a clean DSDT with HDMI Audio patch. Forum member Toleda has done a great job about this, generating just two patches.
- Go to toleda's repository and click on ib1-ami_efi_clean_compile.txt
- In the top right corner click on Raw command, the browser window will now show only text: that's the patch
- Save the windows as a file text in Desktop (generating
ib1-ami_efi_clean_compile.txt)
- Go back to the previous repository page and select AMI-HD4000-7_Series, then you'll have two options:

  • ib2-hdmi_audio_ami_efi_hd4000-1.txt if you have a discrete graphic card
  • ib3-hdmi_audio_ami_efi_hd4000-3.txt if you have only Intel HD 4000 onboard graphic
​- Choose whatever you need and save a text file as previous explained for the first patch. Now on desktop you'll have two text files, and we're going to use with DSDT Editor (from now DE)


Step #2 - Extract, patch and compile DSDT for HDMI Audio
- Open DE and in Menu bar click on File/Extract DSDT, a fresh DSDT will be generated.
NOTE: If you already have a DSDT in System/Extra folder reboot the system typing at Chameleon-Chimera screen DSDT=Null then proceed extracting DSDT
- In DE Menu bar click on Patch/Open and choose the first text file you saved in Step 1 of this thread (
ib1-ami_efi_clean_compile.txt)
- In the new window just appeared click on Apply, wait the end of the process (a few seconds) and Close
- In DE Menu bar click on IASL/Compile: a new window will appear reporting compiling results. It's possible that it will report some Warnings or Remarks, the important thing is that MUST BE 0 Errors! Warning or Remarks will disappear applying the next patch.
- Repeat patch procedure choosing ib3-hdmi_audio_ami_efi_hd4000-X.txt (Patch/Open/Apply/Close and IASL/Compile)
- Now, after compiling, compile window should report 0 Errors, 0 Warnings, 0 Remarks, XX Optimizations, so in DE Menu bar Click on IASL/Save AML as and name it DSDT.aml. You're ready to edit (manually, for now) DSDT in order to fix USB 3.0 backward port. Drink a cup of coffee, feed your cats, kiss your wife, smoke a cigarette and lock the door.


Step #3 - USB 3.0 fix

- Open DSDT just saved and find
Device (XHC)
- Select the entire block from Device (XHC) to Device (HDEF)
Device (XHC)
...............................
Device (HDEF)
and replace with this
Device (XHC1)

- Now the Compiler Summary windows should be clean (0 Errors, 0 Warning, 0 Remarks, XX Optimizations). Done.
- If not, maybe it's necessary to resolve some references to the XHC that could generate compile error (it's about XHC to be replaced with XHC1), it depends by the error message.

Your DSDT will make Intel USB 3.0 fully working
Please note that I'm not a DSDT or ACPI expert.
I take NO CREDITS for all this amazing work! I simply gathered infos from web and from Mieze.
Anyway, feel free to report success, errors, advices etc.
Mieze: you're the one! Thank you!



UPDATE April 15th, 2013
As stated by Mieze in post #24, some System Definitions don't work with USB 3.0 backwards.
So, if you're using Ivy Bridge cpu and 7 series motherboard (Z77, H77, B75 etc.) probably the best SysDef choice is MacMini 6,1 (i5 cpu) or 6,2 (i7 cpu, with the most pstates regarding Ivy Bridge Power Management). It also be pretty good iMac 13,1 (i5 cpu) iMac 13,2 (i7 cpu). Anyhow, any Ivi Bridge SysDef make usb 3.0 working properly with the editing above here.
You can also choose Sandy Bridge SysDef (it depends by your components, of course) MacMini 5,1 or Mac Pro 3,1. Cheers!



UPDATE 2 April 21st, 2013
Awsome news! (not so new, as a matter of fact)
Forum member Zenith432 has created a GenericUSBXHCI.kext that makes Intel Z77 usb hub controller working properly without all the editing work above reported. And more: GenericUSBXHCI.kext makes my ASMedia usb 3 controller working, as well.
  • Download "Binaries v.1.1.4" from his thread
  • Remove any kext installed to make (partially?) usb 3.0 working from System/Library/Extensions (in my case CalDigitUSBxHCI.kext and CalDigitFastIO.kext)
  • Install GenericUSBXHCI.kext with Kext Utility or whatever you like
  • Show hidden files typing in terminal window defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE then press enter and type killall Finder and press enter again
  • Paste xhcdump in /usr/local/bin
  • Repair permissions and rebuilt cache
  • Hide hidden files typing in terminal window defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE then press enter and type killall Finder and press enter again
  • Reboot
Here is my test with an external HDD USB 3.0 and flash drive 2.0. Asrock Z77E-ITX motherborad and Intel core i7 3770S

PART 1 - Mieze's DSDT patch + ASMedia kexts (CalDigitFastIO.kext and CalDigitUSBxHCI.kext) downloaded here

- HDD connected to Intel usb 3, recognized as Super Speed Bus up to 5 Gb/sec and stays connected after wake from sleep
- HDD connected to ASMedia usb 3, recognized as Super Speed Bus up to 480 Mb/sec and auto remounted after wake from sleep
- HDD connected to usb 2 recognized as High Speed Bus up to 480 Mb/sec and stays connected after wake from sleep
- Flash drive recognized properly everywhere, but in ASMedia usb 3 auto remounted after wake from sleep



PART 2 - No Mieze's DSDT patch, no ASMedia kexts, just GenericUSBXHCI.kext

- HDD connected to Intel usb 3, recognized as Super Speed Bus up to 5 Gb/sec and stays connected after wake from sleep
- HDD connected to ASMedia usb 3, recognized as Super Speed Bus up to 5 Gb/sec and auto remounted after wake from sleep
- HDD connected to usb 2 recognized as High Speed Bus up to 480 Mb/sec and stays connected after wake from sleep
- Flash drive recognized properly everywhere, but in ASMedia usb 3 auto remounted after wake from sleep
- "-gux_nosleep" kernel flag caused unmount remount in Intel usb3 without solving remount in ASMedia ports
- "-gux_nomsi" kernel flag doesn't affect Intel ports after wake from sleep, but doesn't solve unmount on ASMedia ports.


Conclusion
Regarding ASMedia USB 3.0 Controller, GenericUSBXHCI.kext works better than CalDigitFastIO.kext + CalDigitUSBxHCI.kext
Regarding Intel Z77 USB 3.0 Controller, GenericUSBXHCI.kext does the same job as Mieze's DSDT patches


Using DSDT with Mieze's patch doesn't affect GenericUSBXHCI.kext job. Not necessary, I know, but for the sake of curiosity...


UPDATE 3 April 22nd, 2013
Tested on Gigabyte Z77N-ITX WiFi + Intel i7 3770K and on Zotac Z77-ITX WiFi + Intel i7 3770T

Since these motherboards have only Intel Controller I couln't say these results are for all mobos.
  • On Zotac everything went well: tested both methods DSDT patch and just GenericUSBXHCI.kext. Also wake from sleep doesn't affect hdd or flash drive connection. So I decided to keep DSDT editing, I prefer not to add extra kexts, but it's definetly the same result.
  • On Gigabyte I had some issues. Basically every device is properly recognized, but with both methods they're disconnected after wake from sleep. This happens in every usb port: 2.0 and 3.0 as well. Furthermore GenericUSBXHCI.kext method seems to compromise my apple usb keyboard hub until I unplug the device connected and remounted after sleep (hdd or flash drive). That doesn't happen when applying DSDT patch. So in this case DSDT patch has my +1. I can't really say why it happens, maybe something in Gigabyte Uefi Bios has to be set in another way, or maybe some other dsdt string to be changed...really don't know.
Carbo178 reported best results with DSDT patch method on his ASUS mobo (i.e. no sleep issues), what about you, guys?
I think that our community needs testers. So come on, report results!

Unfortunately this is my last day with Gigabyte Z77N-ITX WiFi. So my tests stop here. Until some other friend or relative will ask me to build him/her a hack! Ah ah!
Cheers
g.

 

 


Hello! I have a GA-Z77N-WiFi with ivy bridge cpu and all usb ports working without patch. GA-Z77N-WiFi users really need this patch??????
