  1. I think 1.9.1 is still in testing, but it should be out any time
  2. no don't get me wrong, Lion does run well, but not any better than snow leopard in my opinion, I did loose a few programs in it too. . .
  3. if you're using Lion you should be using EDP 2.1, the latest being 2.1e for Lion 1.7.1 if you're using Snow Leo you should be using EDP 1.9 or 1.9.1 for S.L. 10.6.8 my sleep works great and it always has - both in S.L & Lion - I just simply stick to the EDP & set a system pass in BIOS setup (F2 at boot) note: the only weird thing that happens sometimes is my mouse starts freaking out after wake up sometimes, and sometimes my screen is dark. . .
  4. try the latest EDP dude, that's all I ever use, that and setting a system password. . .
  5. I just used the one from the current EDP, so for Lion 1.7.1 I used EDP 1.2e I think, I got it from a group email from Leon, if you need it PM me
  6. So, after running Lion on my iMac and D620 for a while I've come to the conclusion that I'm never going to use Launch Pad or Mission Control, let alone buy a new Trackpad and so I can learn a bunch of useless gestures that I'm never going to use. . . and let's face it, no matter how hard Apple tries to push IOS on to us and push us up into the Cloud, the more I realize how little I need the new changes and once again, how much further they slip away from what used to make Apple computers so great- which was: "it just works". Now, it's like they've changed their motto: "it just updates", and
  7. Yes I have Skype, although I don't use it much
  8. I flashed my D620 BIOS with the modified one provided on the wiki, so far no problems. . .I would like to make one for my AMD setup YEA! and hey, if the new flash doesn't work for you, you can always revert to your stock dell flash
  9. I was able to run my D620 Intel in 64 bit mode great, the only thing that didn't seem to work was SleepEnabler, which is prob written for 32 bit. anyway, if you want to try it it's real easy: To select the 64-bit kernel for the current startup disk, use the following command in Terminal: sudo systemsetup -setkernelbootarchitecture x86_64 To select the 32-bit kernel for the current startup disk, use the following command in Terminal: sudo systemsetup -setkernelbootarchitecture i386 Note: This setting is stored in the /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boo
  10. I got to install Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on a friend of mine's D420 and talk about fast. Everything was working great, that is UNTIL I updated to 10.6.8 in whereby I lost WiFI, Bluetooth and USB Anybody else with update issues with Snow Leopard? EIDT: I found this in another post, I havent tried it but I think it'll work: Hi all with WiFi problems after update to10.6.8. I found the solution for my D620 finally! Here are the steps: 1) You must add this key in smbios.plist ... SMboardproduct Mac-F4208CC8 2) Delete the file NetworkInterfaces.plist from /Lybrary/Preferences
  11. 1st off let me start off saying that Lion is running almost perfect on my D620. Sleep works, but sometimes after waking, the screen is dark and I have to re-boot to get back to normal. Another thing that sometimes happens is the trackpad starts freaking out erratically, I'm using #4 AnV/Slice modified. other than that everything runs fast and I had to install Rosetta from my Snow Leopard disc to run FCP 2. . .
  12. Most defineatly, us AMD users are lost without him, that's why I wanna learn to compile kernels
  13. yea, AnV has got a new 10.6.8 that will do 64 bit for AMD's, I guess that's the real issue for Lion at this point - I was hoping for Nawcom would come out with one My other hackintosh is an AMD Phenom quad core running retail SL, btw
  14. has anyone heard about any legacy kernels for Lion yet? I read on Nawcom's blog that AnV has made one, does anyone know anything a about it? In the meantime I am attempting to compile one myself using Xcode 4.1 and Lion 10.7 sources, wish me luck
  15. SwitchSound Script
  16. yea, I applied the AppleIntegrated framebuffer text that Leon had posted 2.1 - I had a hard time getting the track-pad to work correctly, I think I ended up using #3 or #4 also the sound was terrible with video streaming - sound was breaking up and crackling - I went back to EDP 9.1 EDIT: I went back again to 2.1, this time changing the audio settings in Audio MIDI Settings to 44.1 Khz and 16 bit audio - runs and sounds great, sleep works great, mouse is weird at times, but that's normal for my setup
  17. Thanx Leon & Marceboy - fixed my dark screen! I successfully upgraded to Lion without a hitch. . .well, almost! Do I need to run EDP 1.9.pkg again? What trackpad driver will work best for the new Gestures?? -thanx again everyone for all your hard work!
  18. UPDATE: I picked up a T5500 Core 2 Duo chip for 10$ bucks to day, installing Lion as I type this. . .The screen is a little dark!
  19. Experiment: I read on this forum that Paranoid was able to do this for a mac mini core duo (MacMini1,1) and all he had to do was simply add his mac mini's ID to /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist - ( which was Mac-F4208EC8 ) Question: What would happen if I were to hook up an external USB to my iMac (Lion) and using Disk Utility - restored it to an External USB drive (SATA) then put my extra folder from my D620 (minus the battery kext of course) installed chameleon to it then ran the EDP 1.9 package on it then put it in my D620 (core Duo only) using this guys mac mini
  20. Oh I plan on it! (this ain't my 1st rodeo with a laptop!)
  21. heck yea! I'm gonna opt for the T7200 on ebay, about the middle there. . .
  22. I still have to wait till I get a core 2 duo, but when I get one I will try this!
