  1. I have the i7 and 1600x900 screen in my laptop. I upgraded it to 16gb ram, and am running off a hdd installed in a caddy replacing the DVD drive. I didn't think either of those upgrades should change anything related to sleep. When I get home from work tonight I will try replacing those kexts with the versions I have working in my ML install. <br />Thanks
  2. Hi guys, Ive been away from here for awhile, had been running 10.8 Mountain Lion on my E5430 successfully for a year and a half thanks to lots of help I received here. I thought I would like to try upgrading to Mavericks, or Yosemite, but was worried about messing up my existing install, so I followed the excellent guide here by pokenguyen and everything went so smooth! It was extremely easy to follow, and almost everything seems to be working great. So much easier than last time! I only have one major problem with my install though, and that is with sleep. The computer goes to sleep no problem, but when it wakes up, I see the desktop in a frozen state for about 2 or 3 seconds before it reboots. I was wondering if anyone else has problems with sleep, and how I might be able to fix this? Thanks again!

    Core i5 e5430

    For what its worth, I never did have any luck with the EDP and my core i7 e5430 either. Biggest problem I had was getting accelerated graphics working. See the other e5430 thread for details on how we got it working. I believe there was a hacked appleIntelFramebuffercapri.kext that needed to be installed.
  4. Just an added note, I haven't tried the newer versions at all... Think I am on V2 or V3 on my e5430 bit I have the same issues here. Does not save my preferences and I need to reset then upon each boot.
  5. OK... This is amazing. Installed Debug version first to test it out. Found that touch pad worked, but was almost unusable. Cursor jumping around, needing to press very hard on touchpad for it to detect movement... but 2 finger scroll worked! I went into the prefpane, and the stock trackpad prefpane detected the trackpad this time, and allowed me to make some speed adjustments. Previously, the synaptics prefpane would crash out immediately, but with this new driver it loads! It appears that although each option in the prefpane showed a value, there was actually no value loaded. So by simply changing the values, or checking a box and then unchecking it again, I was able to tweak settings to get everything working fairly well. Finger Z value adjustment made the biggest difference. I was able to set the sensitivity, and get tap to click working. Scrolling tab adjustments got side scrolling working, but its a bit unreliable still.. but definitely usable! Multi Finger Scrolling works, both vertically and horizontally. With this update, the track point is completely unusable. Movements are inverted, and completely erratic. Not a deal breaker though as I dont like to use it as much as I used to with my old thinkpad and tecra. Below is the model detected by the debug version of the driver: 2013-05-19 10:37:15.000 PM kernel[0]: ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint::identify: Found ALPS Device with ID E7=0x73 0x03 0x0a, EC=0x88 0x08 0x1d
  6. Yeah, just your kext loading: Marks-MacBook-Pro:~ mdriedger$ find /Extra/Extensions -name '*PS2*' Marks-MacBook-Pro:~ mdriedger$ find /System/Library/Extensions -name '*PS2*' /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/VoodooPS2Controller /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/MacOS/VoodooPS2Keyboard /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext.dSYM /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext.dSYM/Contents/Resources/DWARF/VoodooPS2Keyboard /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Mouse.kext /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Mouse.kext/Contents/MacOS/VoodooPS2Mouse /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Mouse.kext.dSYM /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Mouse.kext.dSYM/Contents/Resources/DWARF/VoodooPS2Mouse /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext/Contents/MacOS/VoodooPS2Trackpad /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext.dSYM /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext.dSYM/Contents/Resources/DWARF/VoodooPS2Trackpad And when running the debug version, you are correct in the model, as I found these lines: 2013-05-14 7:44:08.000 PM kernel[0]: E7 report: [73 03 0a] 2013-05-14 7:44:08.000 PM kernel[0]: E7: { 0x73, 0x03, 0x0a } E6: { 0x00, 0x00, 0x64 } 2013-05-14 7:44:08.000 PM kernel[0]: Discovered touchpad version: 0x7331 2013-05-14 7:44:08.000 PM kernel[0]: ALPS Device? no 2013-05-14 7:44:08.000 PM kernel[0]: ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint::probe leaving. If you think there is a possibility to get this touchpad working better, that is fantastic. As it stands right now, it is usable, but either 2 finger scrolling or edge scrolling would be great! Thanks
  7. OK, strange results on my E5430. I had already tried RehabMan's voodoops2controller.kext a few weeks ago to try it, but it wouldn't work at all for me.. so I had already updated to his FakeSMC.kext. I installed your VoodooPS2Controller.kext to /E/E and copied your VoodooPS2Daemon to /usr/bin with RehabMan's org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.Daemon.plist copied to /Library/LaunchDaemons. Ran MyFix and rebooted. Trackpad and TrackStick work, but only as basic mouse and very slow tracking. Loading Trackpad prefpane gives a message that no trackpad can be found. system.log does not contain anything relating to ALPS model. Instead I do notice this line though: VoodooPS2Trackpad: Identify TouchPad command returned incorrect byte 2 (of 3): 0x00 When loading the debug version, system.log gets flooded with messages like below, and system constantly beeps. May 14 19:44:57 Marks-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: ps2m: dx=0, dy=1, dz=0, buttons=0 May 14 19:44:57 Marks-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: ps2m: dx=-1, dy=0, dz=0, buttons=0 May 14 19:44:57 Marks-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: ps2m: dx=0, dy=1, dz=0, buttons=0 May 14 19:44:57 Marks-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: ps2m: dx=-2, dy=1, dz=0, buttons=0 May 14 19:44:57 Marks-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: ps2m: dx=-1, dy=1, dz=0, buttons=0 May 14 19:44:57 --- last message repeated 1 time --- May 14 19:44:57 Marks-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: ps2m: dx=-2, dy=1, dz=0, buttons=0 May 14 19:44:57 Marks-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: ps2m: dx=-2, dy=0, dz=0, buttons=0 May 14 19:44:57 Marks-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: ps2m: dx=-1, dy=1, dz=0, buttons=0
  8. Looking forward to trying this on my E5430 when I get home from work tonight. It really is one of the last things that needs improvement on my system to make it completely usable! Not sure if my ALPS touchpad is the same revision as yours, but there has only been one kext I've found to work so far, and there is no scrolling support with it. Hopefully this helps! Thanks for your contribution!

    I am using your DSDT at the moment, but also tried the previous DSDT you had posted as well as my own. I never did try SleepEnabler.kext as I was hoping to get it working with the DSDT like your system. I might need to dive in a little deeper and try to learn how to edit my own DSDT. I've decompiled them and looked around, but Ive been a bit overwhelmed and lost and haven't found a good straight forward resource to learn from yet.

    I have AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement in /S/L/E and had NullCPUPowerManagement in E/E but if I boot without NullCPU then I get a KP within a minute or 2 of booting. Sometimes it just locks up, other times I get a 'No HPETS available CPU(s) configured incorrectly' I tried the AppleIntelCPU thats in your dropbox in case it was patched or modified but it did not make a difference for me. nsemenov, is your hardware identical to mine? my hw is detailed on post 1

    I tried your more recent dsdt last night and had the same results with sleep. When going to sleep, the screen turns off, but the fans keep humming away and keyboard and power button stay lit. Nothing will bring it back from this state and a hard reset is required. The AppleHDADisabler.kext didn't work for me either, but deleting AppleHDA.kext got the audio working with the dsdt. I should have thought of that earlier. I also just ordered an atheros AR5B95 wifi card. I had been using a Dlink DWA-131 usb wifi card, which has worked great for me in SL and Lion on my previous hack, and ML on this unit, but for $5 it would be nice to just have it built in and free up a usb port.

    Leon, I was thinking of ordering this card for use in my E5430. This is great news that you got it working in Windows 8. Did you attempt to get it working in Mountain Lion? I was looking at Herve's guide to get the DW5520 working and that is how I came across this card, which looks like it is newer and supports HSPA up to 21mbps instead of the 7.2 of the 5520.

    nsemenov, My system was able to boot with your dsdt, but I did not notice any difference in performance. Sleep still does not work with it, and it breaks audio, so I am running without a dsdt still. Back in late January, Dinesh was helping me try to get a dsdt working, but we didnt have any luck enabling graphics after trying several different edits he made to a dsdt, so we assumed there was other problems. I broke my system when trying to update and just set it aside for awhile. It turns out that it was the capri kext that needed modification the entire time. I tried the dsdt and ssdt files he first sent me, and they boot for me as well, though sleep does not work with it either, and I also lose sound when using the dsdt. I think the SSDT files he sent over are working though? I still dont fully understand how the ssdt works, or even what other changes I might need to make when trying to use the dsdt. I think that ssdt's are for speed stepping, which I think are working. I can watch the processor change from 1.19ghz x12 up to 2.87ghz x29 multiplier. Its hard to say for sure because I dont know how to test if everything else is working, but I think this is what remains for me to get working: get sleep working get sound working with dsdt get multitouch / scrolling / gestures working on the touchpad. Scroll only works when holding both right&left buttons. sd card slot, I haven't tried it but it doesnt matter much to me. no audio over hdmi usb3, dont know how to test as I dont have any usb3 devices

    Strange that the 3 of us all seem to have different results as far as the graphics go. Platform Id 3 or 4 would not enable accelerated graphics with the stock capri kext from 10.8, 10.8.2, or 10.8.3. Nsemenov's capri.kext enables the HD4000 on 10.8 and 10.8.3 for me without a string, and just by using GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Internal display and HDMI both work with this config. I have the i7 3520M processor, 1600x900 HD Plus Display, and 1 4GB stick of RAM. My system reports 384MB of video RAM. Malone, did your system ship with 16GB ram, or did you upgrade it? I would like to go to 16GB ram, but I've read conflicting reports that 16GB is only available through Dell Configuration Services?

    Ok thanks! I put that kext in, and it still wouldn't boot. I read what you mentioned earlier in the post regarding 10.8.3 and replaced AppleACPIPlatform.kext IOBluetoothFamily.kext IOAudioFamily.kext with the ones from your dropbox, and I am now able to boot! Out of curiosity, what processor do you have? I was wondering if the dsdt.aml and ssdt.aml files would also work for my unit, it doesnt look like sleep is working for me at the moment, though now that the system boots there's a lot of other things I should test to see if they work too. I tried the EFI string you posted, along with several others and was never able to get any of them to enable the graphics adapter on my machine. The closest I would ever get was a black monitor on internal display and garbled output on hdmi. Now with nsemenov's AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext I have Intel HD Graphics 4000 384MB reporting, and I get the correct 1600x900 detected on internal display as well as 1080p output to a connected HDMI Monitor.
