i using patch and injection to config but mic don't work.It's really stranger

 

You're not the only one. I manually patched the AppleHDA codec for the ALC269VB on my XPS 15z and sound works, but mic doesn't. Same results with the AppleALC codec as well.

 

Seems to be an issue on this chipset. Has anyone had any success?

 

Other than that Sierra is a pleasant surprise. Other than the Fn keys (which I've mitigated using Keyboard Maestro) and the native Cypress trackpad (which I need to dig out my C++ skills for), it's working quite well.

 

 

 

BTW - Hope you're fully recovered and feeling better TW!

This worked for mic and sound with my n4110.

Thanks - though that still doesn't work for my ALC269. 

 

I'm temporarily using VoodooHDA 2.8.8 which bizarrely works with the mic, until I figure what needs to be patched on the AppleHDA binary.

I have vostro 3450 too, your USBs 2.0 is working?

 

for audio, you can try install AppleALC by vit9696 or voodooHDA

Hi SergioDinizSH!!! Yeah my USBs 2.0 are working!!

 

At first I tryed the DELL SCT OSX Support Package, but Clover wasn't installing and usb stopped after reboot, I was getting into the system only with the USB Bootable Clover...

So I tryed other methods, and the one that works was, after installing El Capitan and getting into the system:

Install only Clover from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], replace the files and kext provided on this topic in the EFI partition... and also install those Kexts with KextUtility...

So I reboot and Clover was ok! But USB wasn't working any more.

 

Then I came to [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and tryed the "7/8/9 Series Support" and "Increase Max Port Limit"... I've got an erro, but I got into the Extensions folder and the two kext that should been installed was there: USBInjectAll and FakePCIID_XHCIMux... So I reboot and USB 2.0 was working!

 

Then I noticed that I lost Ethernet, but with RTL8111 it worked again, and so it was just missing the audio.

 

I hope I can help with this, and sorry because I could not answer before.

After some re-coding and compiling I've got the ALC269VB Sound and Cypress Trackpad working on my 15z.

 

For anyone who's having problems with that respective hardware I've attached the kexts here.

 

Oh, and for anyone who has USB2/3 problems (and has the NEC/Renesas USB3.0 hardware) I've found that the PXHCD kext works better than the Generic USB kext. I've also attached it here just in case

I tried your ALC269VB but audio not work.What patch you use on DSDT?

I just have a patch in HDEF to point it to layout 3. Everything else is handled in AppleHDA (and now CodecCommander).

 

If the attachment didn't work it's most likely the wrong verbs and/or pinconfig due to a slightly different 269VB chipset (my sub-vendor id is 0446).

Does the SCT tool require something special to be able to install Clover to the main HDD? Because my log looks like this:

Notice the missing path at "14:24:38: copying main portion of Clover to". Because of this I always need the USB drive with Clover 2922 to start the system and the serial etc. are not being applied.

Could anybody please help me with this?

Okay, after all those years I have finally figured out what this connector patch for the L702X should be to enable the mDP port, with display audio, AFAIK this hasn't been posted earlier. This adds properties to select framebuffer ID 00010000 (mobile Sandy Bridge) and adds display audio properties:

Good to hear! The L702X is still my daily machine, even after six years it still works and performs well, quite amazing actually. Mobility is the only thing, but well. It is currently still on Yosemite, might try to update to (High) Sierra, but that seems to be quite a hassle. For the Renesas USB3 controller, faking an Intel USB3 controller via FakePCIID does not work?

only problem I have is that the battery shows up as 0% and I can't put it on my menu bar, trying to update the version of acpi battery manager right now to see if that fixes it

I have a Dell Vostro 3750 with a more or less working multi boot install - OSX 10.7, windows 7, Linux Mint 12 - bootloader is Chameleon v2.0 r1394.
I guess if I flash the BIOS that won't work any longer. Right?
It would be a nice option to leave the HD untouched and put in a new one so that I would still have a working system in case anything goes wrong.
Would that work if I flash the BIOS again with the DELL 3750A14?

Actually the Vostro is on BIOS Version A11. Should the first step be to update it to A14?

 

Edit: would the old hd still boot after flashing the BIOS if "enable UEFI boot" is not enabled?

Hello!

 

Update your bios to A14 and then flash the cracked one. For booting from the second hdd in the bay, you have to follow the instructions on first post (read it carefully)

 

With UEFI boot (Clover) enabled you can still boot your legacy systems by exiting clover or changing boot priority in bios.

 

Have fun.

Ok, thanks. I bought my last computer before there was UEFI. I heard of it and it's different boot process. Didn't know that you still can boot from oldstyle mbr-hd's.
I'm always a bit nervous at the point of no return...
According to the manual the post install pkg is made for 10.9 and 10.10.
Did anybody try it with the recent system?

Hello1

 

I think, it is wise to install at first Yosemite as featured OS X version to have a stable running system and then try on an other partition a newer version up to 10.13.6.

 

Have fun.

So I flashed the BIOS on a Vostro 3750 with an i5 CPU and rebooted in legacy mode with minor problems. The windows 7 activation is broken - shouldn't be a problem to reactivate. The fan is constantly spinning and I didn't find any fan profile options in the BIOS. Do I have to look somewhere else? In Clover or the Dell sct package?

Later I plan to exchange the hd against an ssd and try an UEFI multiboot install.
I'm not sure whether I understand the following part of the manual as I'm not a native english speaker:

"N.B. Make sure to rename EFI/CLOVER/config-17 or config-14 (depending on the computer model) to just config.plist, EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched-17 and patched-14 to just patched respectively!"

On what exactly does it depend what files I have to rename? On the display size? In my case 17 inch. So I would rename config-17 to config.plist and patched-17 to patched. Right?

I installed Yosemite and ran into similar problems as described by sky-lo-fi on November 4, 2013.

 

Good news first: Installation went flawless, graphics look fine, sleep and wake work, ethernet works. I’m using the vostro right now.

 

Bad news:

1) No sound. The Codec is a realtek alc269. As far as I remember AppleHDA had to be patched for my previous 10.7-Installation years ago. But it might be done with SSDTs here (I have just a vague idea what that is) and the SSDTs might make the stock AppleHDA work but interfere with the patched one.

2) Now that I found out that HWMonitor is an application and not a BIOS-option I also found the fan profiles in the menu. But they don’t have any effect on the behavior of the fans. They are constantly spinning, whatever profile I choose.

3) The FN-key doesn’t toggle anything in combination with the F-keys.

4) Touchpad doesn’t work.

5) Numbers block doesn’t work.

6) WiFi doesn’t work. Not a surprise without OS X support for the Intel Centrino N-1030.

 

After reading some pages of this long thread I believe that at least the first two problems might have to do with the fact that there is an i5 instead of an i3 in my Vostro. So I ran ssdtPRGen.sh without errors, removed in wild trial-and-error-style SSDT-1.aml, SSDT-2.aml and SSDT-4.aml from the EFI/CLOVER/patched-folder and copied SSDT-1.aml, SSDT-2.aml, SSDT-3.aml, SSDT-4.aml and SSDT-5.aml generated by ssdtPRGen.sh to this place.
But that seemed to make things worse. Now the fan profiles in HWMonitor were gone. So I went back to the SSDTs installed by the DELL SCT OS X Support Package v1.1.3 (btw.: thanks for it and the guide).

 

Some of the problems might have to do with hardware differences between the 3450 and the 3750 (does the 3450 have a numbers block?)

 

May I ask for help? Of course it’s not fair to let others work for you for free but it might perhaps be a piece of cake for you (?) I have just a basic understanding but no deep knowledge of computers and it’s not my main interest.

 

Additional info: I ran the DELL SCT OS X Support Package with the following options checked:

 

DELL System: 17inch/NVidia Optimus Graphics - although there is no NVidia card in my Vostro. But if I unchecked this option it would also uncheck „17 inch“, so I left it checked.

Ethernet controller: Gigabit

Wireless Module: AW-NB290. (I don’t know why I checked that. Maybe I had to check one, don’t remember.)

Customization: Disable Hibernation/System Profiler: Vostro 3450

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu
