  1. Let me now if you have any success using lion if you can Herve. I think in light of this problem we should do away with that driver until a new version can be released.
  2. Running nice and smoooooooooth. Thanks everyone!

    bcm5722d

    Anyone else having an issue with the wired lan using this driver? It's disconnecting for me under heavy load. If I transfer say 10 GB or more it never completes and I have to reboot to get it working again. Issue reported here: https://github.com/a...5722D/issues/11 and here: http://www.osx86.net...&id=3074&page=1 solution: Went back to using AppleBCM5751Ethernet. Copy IONetworkingfamily.kext (Version 1.10) and AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext ( Version 2.10d21 Copyright Apple) to /Extra/Extensions then delete BCM5722d.kext and re-run Myfix.
  4. So I thought I would try one last time to get 10.6.8 update to work in case it was a 1 off but the same problem after update. Basically won't boot unless I remove the voodoo battery kext and use a -v but even then it either locks or kp's within a minute or 2. See Photo: Any ideas on this one? edit: trying the update one more time. This time I have pre-installed edp 2.0 rev 4. **update -- Success! After pre-installing latest edp I was able to update to 10.6.8 without any issues. Not sure why it had to be pre-installed but it did. My guess is the system was so unstable after the update any further installs were corrupted.
  5. Thanks Leon! I'll try the myhack installer next week when I get back to work. I'd really like to be running lion as the shelf life of snow is nearing an end. Bronx - I was using the latest chameleon release 2.0 rel 4 I think. Noticed the change to as I just finished a hack onto a p5qse plus system last week. ( Great mobo for installing osx on.) Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving from Canada everyone!
  6. I managed to roll back to 10.6.7 successfully but had no luck with lion. I tried to use the extra driver pack for d630/lion and a copy of lion install from thumb but it reboots as soon as it starts to load the install. What am I missing? Herve would it be possible for you to zip your /extra folder and post it?
  7. Hey Leon!!! I'm thinking that might be the only way at this point since my TM backup isn't working either. Has anyone tested the edp pack for Lion on the 630?
  8. 4 rev 8 I think I saw. I'm gonna kick it ... think that will help?
  9. So I went to get a cup of coffee this morning and was thinking about my old friend Bronxteck. Wondered if you were still around then sat down with coffee in hand and here you are. LOL- true story bro! ^5!! Yeah ran myfix although the edp script complains about missing files for the d630. It's weird alright, I had a stable 10.6.7 and everything worked. Then after the 10.6.8 update it would just lock up on start so installed the latest edp and was able to start but nothing works and it's still locking up everywhere "randomly". My wifi card is a true blue bcm out of a macboo so that should just be vanilla. Contemplating going back to 10.6.7 or updating to lion at this point unless someone can tell me what's going on. blah!
  10. I've been away for awhile as I have found myself short on time. Much has changed since my last visit. Congrats to Leon for a great forum and support! I downloaded the latest edp and installed it on my d630 Intel with the latest Snow 10.6.8 using all the default settings. ( What works best as suggested by installer). Unfortunately the only thing working after the install is the audio, usb and trackpad. The video is stuck at 1024x768, the wireless and lan are both non functional. Does anyone have a working set of kexts for this model and config?
  11. I had the same problem with safari .. turned out I had to remove flash manually and the reinstall it. I have no idea why but it just happened after I updated to 10.6.5 from 10.6.0 and it'd definitely a flash problem. I forget how to manually remove the flash plugin .. use google on that one. cheers.
  12. I tried using parallels with my setup and it was brutal trying to get it to to work with chameleon. I ended up pooching my system and had to start over. fusion all the way!
  13. So my D630 will take 8 GB DDR2? Hmmmm ... Question though I heard that you can't install snow if you have more than 4 Gb of ram. is that true?
  14. Good point Bronx. I had forgot about running disk repair since my main system is so flippin fast to begin with but sure enough after running it I gained an increase in performance and mostly noticeable at startup. I think Apple was in a hurry to get this out since all those macbook pros could literally cook .. most of them still under applecare.
