help needed to update my hda [Resolved]

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a very old hda which someone kindly patched for me years ago and has worked with all versions up until Sierra. It might have worked with High Sierra but I skipped that version.

Unfortunately it doesn't work in Mojave and is causing crashes back to the login screen.

I have tried following guides in the past to update later hda.kexts but my working one is so old it doesn't seem to be the same format as in the guides.

Would someone be kind enough to see if they could update mine for me.

I've attached my working hda, a virgin mojave hda and my dsdt.

I'm pretty sure my audio is alc269

Thanks in advance.

Mike

If you install VoodooHDA kext (+AppleHDADisabler), DPCIManager app should list the audio codec fitted to your Hack.

Restore Mojave's vanilla AppleHDA and try latest AppleALC with latest Lilu. You may need to experiment with the various layouts listed.

At v1.7.9a4, your patched AppleHDA kext is very old indeed:

  • SL 10.6(.0), 2009 -> AppleHDA v1.7.4a1
  • SL 10.6.3, 2010 -> AppleHDA v1.8.4fc3
  • SL 10.6.8, 2011 -> AppleHDA v2.0.5

So we know it dates back to early SL days... Not too surprising that it would not load on such recent macOS versions as Sierra and later.


I was also a little surprised by your DSDT: it injects layout 269 (0x10D) in the HDEF audio device which seems more related to the codec id than anything else.

Thanks, that will have to wait until after the weekend now. 

Is it not an easy job to edit the Mojave hda with the information in my working hda?

I've given AppleALC and Lilu a go but they don't work.

I think my only option is to edit my HDA.

My problem is the guide I tried following several years ago doesn't say how to adapt the data in an old hda to the newer type.

If anyone could have a go at trying to get mine to work I'd be eternally grateful.

Also sound has never worked in HDMI but I'm not too worried about that as I never use it.

I'm glad to report I've got sound working :)

I'm using the latest version of Voodoo and disabler which hasn't worked for me in the past.

I've just got to get ethernet working now and then I can rest.
