IntelHD3000 - Cannot get QE/CI and Atheros 9285 won't work!

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, folks!


Having lots of difficulties with these, which I took for granted as easy fixes. As always, tried hard to solve it myself, but since the troubleshooting steps that worked for others aren't working for me, I really could use some help.


The computer is a Sony Vaio laptop, with a Sandy Bridge I3-2370-TM CPU, Intel HD3000 graphics and Atheros 9285 Wi-Fi (as already described in the topic's title). 


I patched my DSDT with the 9285 patch and with the HD3000 patch from Olarila: http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1500 (warning: portuguese), but also tried without these patches and combinations of GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No and PCIRootUID=0/1. I use a MacBookPro 8,1 system definition as recommended for my hardware (sandy bridge). Attached is a Darwin Dumper report, an Everest Ultimate report, my current patched DSDT and my current org.chameleon.Boot.plist.


Any help will be much appreciated!


All the best!

TheConnatic, does the card work in  mountain lion? (both wifi and graphics)

Didn't try it, I don't have a ML/Lion installer at hand anymore... Both should work: a lot of people reported success with the HD3000, and the 9285 requires a very simple and well-tested DSDT patch. In fact, it should be a cakewalk: I don't know why I'm not being able to get both to work...


All the best!

then what happens if you use the IntelHD3000Graphics.kext and the IO80211.kext from a computer that has 10.7.5 or 10.8.5?

P.S.: just added to my DSDT a patch from Artur-PT to which I was directed by reading an old post from iFire: #3. Will reboot as soon as I finish a download and report here.

P.P.S.: yes, I prefer to focus first on solving QE/CI...

P.P.P.S.: but found this post from Oldnapalm and perhaps the 9285 will get dealt with first: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289824-atheros-9285/  (EDIT: done, now wi-fi works like it should. :D)

so you got to patch your ar9285 by adding 168c; 2a... your dev. id is in the hd3000 kext too right?

Right, first thing i tried ;)


I'm not Bono Vox but I still haven't found what i'm looking for. This is getting harder than I could imagine.


Tried accordingly with the topics linked in my latest post PSs with a cleaner DSDT - only DGTP and Dual-Link patches: still no joy.


This time, besides the DSDT, i'm also uploading an IOREG: DSDTIOREG.zip

P.S.: for the sake of accuracy, what i'm missing is Quartz Extreme: i think Core Image is indeed working, since the Launchpad doesn't freeze or hang, and i have proper resolution (but I had to adjust that with Graphics Mode in Chameleon) and 64MB of shared VRAM.

No joy: got a black screen with this framebuffer, had to boot without my DSDT to reach the Desktop - without QE/CI in this case (I think dual-link is needed for any framebuffer to give acceleration with my laptop's monitor).

P.S.: without a doubt, that was a step forward though: the black screen means at least this driver is loading...

P.P.S.: removed AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext and got to square one: good resolution and relative UI fluidity (Core Image) but no graphics acceleration for iLife, iWork, Youtube etc (Quartz Extreme).

I just copied the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext from inside the /S/L/E of my USB installer and voilà, everything is fine now. I notice i slight brightness dim when the Desktop is reached, but nothing like a deal breaker. I have to boot without my DSDT, though, meaning i'll have to resort to other solutions to get my Conexant audio working - perhaps VoodooHDA, that doesn't really make a difference for me.


One think that eludes my understanding is why the stock kext didn't work, and the one from the installer does? Aren't they the same? Or perhaps MyHack corrupted the kext somehow during the installation process? Worth investigating. For now, i'm quite happy with this notebook, which became now one of the very few that fully work under OSX without need to replace any hardware parts.


All the best!

      If you have a working Brightness Slider and you might be using Brightness slider or manual hotkeys to control brightness then this guide may help you to use your Native hotkeys of laptop.
      (All the Credits goes to @RehabMan     For OS-X-ACPI-Debug Kext and DSDT Patches.)
      This step assumes that you are using RehabMan's VoodooPS2Controller or Acidanthera's PS2Controller
      Install the kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Debug Open MaciASL and click on patch.(Add rehab man repo) Apply "Add DSDT Debug Methods" and "Instrument EC Queries" that are under Brightness Fix. Save the DSDT and restart Look in Syslog as you press the key corresponding to brightness to determine which _QXX methods handle the keys (UPDATE: From Sierra Apple changed logging process. So you won't find ACPIdebug result using syslog command. Instead use following command )
      log show --last 5 | grep ACPIDebug 6. Then patch DSDT:
      into method label _Q1D replace_content begin // Brightness Down\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2M, 0x0205)\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2M, 0x0285)\n end; into method label _Q1C replace_content begin // Brightness Up\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2M, 0x0206)\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2M, 0x0286)\n end; Change the variable _Q1D/_Q1C as per the log. 

      7. Try compiling and check if it generates errors
      8. If it does, then change the PS2M to PS2X according to the one found in your DSDT
      9. Save and place the compiled DSDT.
      10. Now you should see that you have your corresponding keys to change your brightness

      Hello everyone,

      Greetings from Brazil! I'm running macOS Catalina 10.15.2 on my Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK laptop. Everything works smoothly, except decent battery management, so I decided to rebuild my DSDT from scratch, so I can patch it properly. It was a bit messy to start with.

      I followed Rehabman's guide (to the letter) posted on tonymacx86. However, I keep getting a compile error, no warnings at all, just 'syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_ARG1'.  Please refer to attached PNG image and .dsl file.

      I've searched endlessly for a solution, but can't fix it no matter what I try. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? I really appreciate your time and help.

      Best regards and Happy Holidays!

      Hello a few days ago I installed a wireless card to get wifi called: Broadcom DW1820A model: 94350ZAE. Could someone help me to modify my efi folder to let the card work correctly? When I switch on the laptop everything is running ok in verbose mode but when later it appears the Apple logo to finally load everything all the computer get stucked so I can’t do anything (there is only the apple logo and a bar), the only way to use my laptop is disabling the wifi card from bios or using the boot arg: brcmfx_driver=1, and I don’t know why it happens this.
      I tried to follow/use some guides but I can’t fix it, so I need help from a professional of Hackintoshes…
      My laptop is a DELL vostro 5568 8 gb ram, i5 7200 2,4GHz, intel hd graphics 620 and the ssd 250gb.
      Here you can download my efi folder and a IOreg file of my computer
      If you need more information etc tell me.
      I only can upload 10mb and my efi folder is 25mb so I'll upload the most important files.
      MacBook Pro14,1.ioreg
