Need Testers

image from nusmathsociety.com

And yes, this is that post that has something to do with my random hackintosh thought post.

I'm testing if we could possibly have VoodooHDA fully migrated to EFI's /Extra/Extensions/ moving forward with 10.6.4 update.

If you're willing to test, here's what to do: BACK UP YOUR SYSTEM FIRST AND CREATE A BOOTER!


What You Need:
- Download Mac OS X v10.6.4 Combo Update
- Download HPM311DP_061810HF6RC3.pkg.
- Download Kext Utility v2.3
- Booter (10.6.4 compatible): Burn MowgliBook's BootCD-altPS2.iso or put it in a MultiBootISO USB flashdrive.

What To Do:
1) Go to /System/Library/Extensions/ and delete VoodooHDA.kext. Also make sure that you don't have any of the ff. kexts in there:
- VoodooHDA (which you should've already deleted)
- ApplePS2Controller
- ApplePS2Nub
- VoodooPS2Controller
2) Download and run Kext Utility to fix permissions in /System/Library/Extensions. Just double click the app and provide your user password.
3) In Terminal; issue these commands:
- $ sudo -s
- $ pmset -a hibernatemode 0
- $ rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage
4) Use Disk Utility to repair permissions on your installation volume; i.e. Macintosh HD.
5) Install Mac OS X v10.6.4 Combo Update; DO NOT RESTART YET.
6) Install HPM311DP_061810HF6RC3.pkg.
7) Restart your Mini 311.

Tips: I recommend using verbose mode on during the initial restart (after installing HF6RC3 above). The proceeding boots can be left as is; graphical/non-verbose mode.

What to look out for:
- Kernel Panics
- blank screen on wake from sleep
- overall stability

*To help you get out of sticky situations, i.e. system won't boot, use the Booter you created to boot up your Mini.

What OS version is required for this update? I'm running 10.6.2 on HP mini 311.

HP mini 311-1110

HPM311DP_061810HF6RC3 installed after Leopard 10.6.4 combo update.

After first reboot no problems ...but one time was kernel panic during boot.

Sleep is not working for me:

System trying to go to sleep by itself for 2-3 times, bu without result - fan is still working, wifi/bluetooth lamp is red and monitor going black...at moment when system "must" sleep its waking up at once!

sorry for my stupid english ))

You need to download the Combo update from apple.com, doesn't matter what version of Sno Leo you're on now. Keep in mind 10.6.4 might not be 100% (for hackintosh standards) yet for your mini.

I really hope someone can find a way to make the stock WIFI card work in Sno Leo, seems how I fried my mini trying other options, not too eager to crack open my case again once I get it back from repair.

I know you guys can do it!

@LeXa
When you put the machine to sleep, did you have a USB mouse left plugged in?

Take it out and try sleeping again.

LeXa said...

@LeMaurien19

I don`t have any connected devices to my mini at this moment.

On 10.6.3 and HPM311DP_HF5RC3 patch I have not any problems, but ethernet controller "unplugging" cable if I do it physically or after sleep and until reboot network is down.

After 10.6.4 and your last patch I can plug/unplug cable without problems :)

LeMaurien19 said...

^So, that does mean your Mini 311 can now sleep?

the old sleepenabler + nullcpupower + osxrestart combo seems to still work (downgraded nbi package to 0.8.2). sleep and restart after sleep still works, no kps so far (running 2 hours after sleep). already deleted that sleepimage ages ago though.

LeMaurien19 said...

Err, this isn't NBI we're talking about here; just thought I'd clear up the confusion (if there are indeed any)

Back to EFI HPM311DP_061810HF6RC3, on my HP Mini 311-1002TU (N280, 2GB DDR3, 250GB HD) with Bios F.15, I've a perfectly working machine - hibernatemode 0.

yup, didn't mean to emphasize on nbi, i meant the vesions of kexts included, packaged and installed by nbi :)
