  1. The SD card reader is now listed in the system report...so i suspect it is working: Built in SD Card Reader: Vendor ID: 0x1217 Device ID: 0x8520 Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x1028 Subsystem ID: 0x05de Revision: 0x0001 Link Width: x1 Link Speed: 2.5 GT/s I have no card available right now...so not a single byte actually transmitted...but in the unlikely event the thing does not work, i will complain here See my updated signature for the complete device list.. -Armin
  2. HDMI works now, thank you! However, in your config.pst AppleHDA#4 was disabled and i had no sound. I have enabled it and now everything works perfectly well. Internal sound, audio via hdmi and audio after sleep. -Armin e5440_everything_working_.10.11.5.zip
  3. no clue where they have gone. Sorry... e5440.zip
  4. Hi Jake Lo, thanks, again. -Armin
  5. Hi there, i have installed El Capitan on my E5440 following this guide und treating it as a E7440. https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-el-capitan-clover-guide Basically everything is working out of the box: QE, Sound (after sleep), Camera, Ethernet, Battery info, ... The only things that is not working are card reader and the external display connectors. Here's what the system report says: Intel HD Graphics 4400: Chipset Model: Intel HD Graphics 4400 Type: GPU Bus: Built-In VRAM (Dynamic, Max): 1536 MB Vendor: Intel (0x8086) Device ID: 0x0412 Revision ID: 0x000b Displays: Display: Resolution: 1600 x 900 @ 60 Hz Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Built-In: Yes When i plug in the HDMI connector the system freezes and when boot -v with the HDMI already connected i see a kernel panic... Q: Is it even possible to make the VGA connector work? Thanks, Armin
  6. OK, Issue resolved: I used KextWizard to install the AppleHDA_ALC292.kext and rebuild permissions and cache Once the sound issue was/is resolved i gave it a hard test with all the things that did not run so smooth in the past with yosemite: Audio with headphone: WORKS like a charm! Audio with sleep: WORKS like a charm!! External Display via HDMI: WORKS like charm!!! Performance of the intel onboard network adapter: WORKS like a charm (98mb/sec) I a m d e e p l y i m p r e s s e d. T h a n k y o u. -Armin
  7. I disabled them just once to try it out.

  8. Hi, i have the same issue. Followed this guide to install 11.5: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-el-capitan-clover-guide/&do=findComment&comment=54633 and copied the kext AppleHDA_ALC292.kext.zip from update 11.4 in SLE. Rebuilding the cache worked well, no error. Here's some diagnostic output: $ du -sk AppleHDA* 4008 AppleHDA.kext 1120 AppleHDA_ALC292.kext $ sudo kextload AppleHDA_ALC292.kext && echo ok ok I have also disabled all (4) AppleHDA related entries in clovers config. There simply is no audio device. Thanks, Armin
  9. yes, the e7440 has this option. However it does not change the behaviour: Even when disabled it disconnects the usb ports when it sleeps and complains afterwards about it (disk not ejected properly), However i read that 10.10 introduced issues with usb and sleep that show up even on their own hardware ...so i ignore this for now....
  10. ok, i have one more: Whenever osx automatically goes to some sleep due to the lack of events on user interaction, it ungracefully disconnects usb devices. This happens also when i close the lid and leave it closed for more than 30 seconds. When i re-plug the affected device it re appears and other than being fscked works normal. This happens with and without GenercUSBXHCI (btw: do i need this thing at all?) in USB3 or USB2 bios configuration. Any ideas someone? Happy hacking, Armin PS and btw: Audio works great even with the original AppleHDA in combination with the CodecCommander kext.
  11. JakeLo at al: Thanks and keep up your excellent work.
  12. thanks: The SD card is working now with the original kext What are my options with regards to display and external (as much as possible) displays? My status quo is as follows: With patched DSDT i get a kernel panic when plugging in an external hdmi display. The top bar and e.g. Chrome have some artefacts. Otherwise everything is fine (qe/ci), The system reports HD4440 with 1536MB video ram. I use this patch from #1: # Inject HD4400/4600 into method label _DSM parent_adr 0x00020000 remove_entry; into device name_adr 0x00020000 insert begin Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)\n {\n If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer() { 0x03 } ) }\n Return (Package()\n {\n "AAPL,ig-platform-id", Buffer() { 0x06, 0x00, 0x26, 0x0a },\n "hda-gfx", Buffer() { "onboard-1" },\n "AAPL00,DualLink", Buffer() { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 },\n })\n }\n end; With the patched AppleIntelFrameBufferAzul from https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/7478-dell-latitude-e6xxxe7xxx-yosemite-install-guide/?p=45224 external hdmi display works (qe/ci), but DVI ports of the dock don't... System reports 1024mb video ram on a hd4400. Thanks, Armin PS: Using the patched Azul Framebuffer i can have 3 displays: - external 1 via hdmi - external 2 via mini display port to VGA adapter (i have not tested dp-dp) - notebook internal
  13. I agree: patching dsdt is the elegant solution. I get a compile error, this call cannot resolve the DTGP function.. DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) 3728, 6084, Object does not exist (DTGP) Q: Should i apply the patches from rehabmans github repository...does that add the method? Thanks, Armin
  14. I reinstalled 10.10 on a e7440 (Bios 14) after accidentally converting it to openbsd. Unfortunately this operation is one way. Note: - The clover Configurator that HVT 1.81 installed messes up the initial config. I turned off p and c states using vi - Everything works but bluetooth and the CD card reader I don't need bluetooth, but the cd card reader is urgently needed...can someone point me to the kext i just can't seem to find it.. Thanks, Armin Edit: As always: The moment after posting this message i found this amazing grab bag which also removed some artefacts from my the display and brought me the cd card. Easter bunny or santa claus or whatever creature created this archive: I whole heartedly thank you! https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/7478-dell-latitude-e6xxxe7xxx-yosemite-install-guide/?p=45224
  15. This DSDT fixes two issues for me in comparison to this one: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/6472-dell-latitude-e7240e7440-with-mavericks-1095-updated/&do=findComment&comment=39087 1) Audio after sleep (without other means) 2) Top menu bar looks good (no artefacts) - Touchscreen works - 3 Audio controll buttons between keyboard and display work - Card reader works too btw Issues left: - Bluetooth randomly not working (after sleep and after reboots) - Audio not working after long periods of sleep (closing and reopening the lid brings back audio) Thanks for your excellent work -Armin
  16. All states are there. Use https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-power-gadget/ I can confirm the keyboard issues, which is a minor thing (imho)... Best wishes, Armin
  17. I did that. I just can't get the headphones to work with 10.9... Here are my quick observations installing 10.10 (not yet finished) - Following post #1 i can not compile dsdt with BIOS A11. I get three errors instead of 2 and patching does not get rid of any... not a big deal, i went on with asl files and kernel extensions from Extra_E7440_Yosemite.zip here. Basically everything works (Headphone, QE/CI, Card reader (even), Bluetooth). Thanks for your support! -Armin
  18. Good morning ladies and gentlemen, i cant get my headphone working. Here's my config: e7440 i5 HD4400 1920x1080, A10 bios (also tried A11). Vanilla 10.9.5 AppleHDA: Speakers are working, headphone is correctly detected when plugged in, but totally silent. Patched AppleHDA plus kernel plus ssdt from here: Speakers are working, headphone is correctly detected when plugged in, but totally silent. booting with -f does not make any difference. Q: I have only applied one dsdt patch from post 1. Do i need to patch more? If so what?? Thanks, Armin
  19. Here's how i got rid of spontaneous reboots while plugging and unplugging USB devices: 1) Remove GenericUSBXHCI from the EFI partition 2) Disable USB3 in Bios Ever since then USB works without crashing the OS. -armin
  20. I'm on 10.9.5 too and it's working... Try removing and re-adding the connection in system preferences... Good luck!
  21. I think i can live wo QE/CI. Xcode happily runs without it. I plugged the original intel wifi+bluetooth card into the WWAN card slot using a piece of scotch tape and the WWAN antenna cables. Works like a charm: Bluetooth and wifi in osx and double wifi under windows. Interestingly the WWAN antenna works well... Who had thought this pathetic piece of hardware would be good for something useful at last? -Armin
  22. Thanks for the instructions, it worked very well for me. I'm on 10.9.5 now, here's what is working for me: + WiFI is working with DW1510...but obviously bluetooth is now dead. How about replacing the wwan card with the original intel wifi card? Would the antenna connection work? + Brightness control works + Sound works, except for the head phone... Can you please provide the chip set from your usb audio adapter? The one you have linked is not available here... + USB3 works too, but sometimes the box reboots instantly when (un)plugging + hdmi ports works (without sound) - qe/ci is not working for me...did i mess a step? - the touch display does not work either (very minor issue...never felt the need smearing around a monitor with my fingers) ++ in summary a very nice setup Thanks, Armin
