  1. Throwing out a feeler for this laptop. Seems like an incredible budget buy if it would run OSX. Specs: Processor Manufacturer Intel Processor Type Core i3 Processor Model i3-4005U Processor Speed 1.70 GHz Processor Core Dual-core (2 Core) Memory Standard Memory 4 GB Memory Technology DDR3L SDRAM Memory Card Reader Yes Memory Card Supported Secure Digital (SD) Card Storage Solid State Drive Capacity 32 GB Optical Drive Type No Display & Graphics Screen Size 11.6" Display Screen Type Active Matrix TFT Color LCD Display Screen Technology ComfyView Screen Mode HD Screen Resolution 1366 x 768 Backlight Technology LED Graphics Controller Manufacturer Intel Graphics Controller Model HD 4400 Graphics Memory Technology DDR3 SDRAM Graphics Memory Accessibility Shared Network & Communication Wireless LAN Standard IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n Bluetooth Standard Bluetooth 4.0 + HS Built-in Devices Webcam Yes Microphone Yes Finger Print Reader No Interfaces/Ports HDMI Yes Total Number of USB Ports 2 Number of USB 2.0 Ports 1 Number of USB 3.0 Ports 1 Package Contents C720-34054G03aii Notebook Lithium Polymer Battery AC Adapter Additional Information Wireless LAN: Acer Nplify 802.11a/b/g/n Wifi on Ubuntu has been activated using Broadcom STA wireless. Googling states the card could be a Atheros AR5B91 B/G/N.
  2. Does anyone know if this progressed? I'm looking hard for a low cost tablet hackintosh.
  3. Any luck with this? I'm on the hunt for a low cost OSX Tablet that will run Mavericks.
  4. I agree. Further information would be appreciated.
  5. Ok. I downgraded Chameleon to r2263, and the touchpad/stick + sound all are working. Something in 2266 broke it. Anyone have an idea what might be the issue? Next up I want to figure out how to create a custom DSDT. I see Chameleon wizard can do this...but is that an ok method? I apparently have to remove the DSDT.aml file I used. What is the potential risk of that?
  6. The below text is in reference to the following thread: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2674-dell-e64006500m4400-mavericks-109-gm/ I'm currently having issues. I successfully got the initial GM of Mavericks installed, and everything was working perfectly. Then I decided I wanted to install the final app store version. I installed it "successfully", however now the sound as well as touchpad/stick are not working. I used myHack 3.3 this time as well as the same extras I used initially from the above linked "guide" thread. I've tried reinstalling twice, and have built a new USB installer as well. I also tried manually installing the ktexts. Which didn't work. Everything appears to be the same as it was when the GM was installed. One thing I did notice is that during install the touchpad/stick weren't working like they did previously. Can someone confirm what version of myHack they are using? I'm wondering if something related to myHack is causing the problem, since initially I think I used the beta of myHack with initial mavericks support. Could this be a Chameleon issue? History/Other information of device: - ML was installed and ran perfectly previously. - I did update BIOS to A34 since I was running a significantly older BIOS. I did ensure the BIOS settings were as needed for Mavericks. And I actually booted into the gold master successfully after the BIOS update. Everything worked perfectly at that point. - What does work: WIFI, GPU w/ QE, keyboard, usb ports, sound buttons work but volume is greyed out, app store access, dvd drive, display, VGA port, can't test SD card - System information displays Audio as follows: Devices - Intel High Definition Audio: Audio ID: 12 - Trackpad preferences shows - No trackpad found
  7. Having issues. I successfully got the initial gold master installed, and everything was working perfectly. Then I installed the final (from scratch) and the sound as well as touchpad/stick are not working. I used myhack 3.3 this time and the same attached extras I used initially. I've tried reinstalling twice, and have built a new usb installer as well. I also tried manually installing the ktexts. One thing I did notice is that during install the touchpad/stick aren't working as before. Can someone confirm what version of myhack they are using? Wondering if something there is causing the problem since initially I think I used the beta of myhack with initial mavericks support.
  8. I may actually stick with the m6400. So I thought I'd post some basic specs and try and get more detailed as a research prior to purchase. The e6400 that I currently have runs ML so amazingly I'm not sure I'll even need the power of the i7.

  9. I'm actually looking at its successor now...the m6500. They come with i7 chips and nVidia FX3800M.
  10. Thanks guys. Does anyone know if we can install the update? I read earlier that someone tried and it messed up the App Store.
  11. Got it working with some hackery in Ubuntu. Current issue is that the keys don't seem to be set up correctly. The windows key isn't the Apple key for instance. Is this a common issue? And has anyone successfully installed the Itunes/safari updates?
  12. Its from app store. And I got it kind of working. It installs, but at the end of the install it states that the install failed.
  13. I'm getting a freeze at PCI configuration begin. I've tried all sorts of different flags: ncpi, etc. Has anyone run into this issue?
