  1. I have the same computer and that is my only issue with this laptop. it would be great if we could get sleep working! I will be following this thread thanks
  2. Has anyone gotten full sleep to work with this setup? E6430 with the nvidia optimus... ???
  3. I am having a weird image preview bug in finder and even in some applications like DW.
  4. Has anyone else noticed a bug with image preview in finder? all images are showing up weird for me...
  5. Thanks Jake Lo! This is exactly what I was looking for!!!! It works great!
  6. I am having problems with USB 3 I can't get any ports to work other than the left side port. I am going to try rolling back to only USB 2 and see if that can even work... Anyone else have this problem?
  7. Have you tried just booting with -v -f ? I had it happen once upon rebooting where the screens were black, but I could still control audio volume via the buttons on the laptop. the mouse was the only thing that was showing... I rebooted with -v -f and it hasn't happened since... not sure if this is the same problem you experienced or not, but It might help.
  8. Rebranding the card can also enable air-drop (which if it is unbranded it can not from my understanding) Also, make sure to check that the region code is set to USA (0x001) (Something a lot of people have misslooked when rebranding)
  9. Here are a couple of pages I followed to get mine working: http://prasys.info/2009/12/rebranding-broadcom-802-11abgn-cards-as-airport/ The original how to here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/121293-rebranding-broadcom-based-80211bgn-cards/?p=863983&do=findComment&comment=863983 and: http://legacy.tonycrapx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=28484 for my specific card the DW1510 Jake Lo might be able to give more info and maybe a tutorial on how to for the DW1510.
  10. Jake I hadn't even noticed! Since full sleep doesn't work yet on mine, its always plugged in. but now that you mention it, I am looking into why the battery isn't showing up. The DSDT I am using has been patched so that I can be connected to the Dell dock and have 1 DVI out from the dock. Can you post the DSDT you are using? I might try what you are doing, dropping the patched appleHDA and replacing with VoodooHDA I did notice that the version of the AppleSmartBatteryManager I was using before (on the right) was a little out of date... I tried replacing it but still didn't get battery. I am almost positive that it is my DSDT. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/92-applesmartbatterymanager/
  11. I was able to successfully install OsX 10.9 DP1 on my Dell Latitude E6430 today. I had a spare hard drive lying around, and thought, "why not?" If you have the same hardware as me here is how I got it working: DELL LATITUDE | E6430 Processor 2.89 GHz Intel Core i7 Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Graphics nVidia NVS 5200M 1024 MB / HD4000 WiFi replaced with a rebranded Dell DW1510 from eBay Step 1: Download the Mavericks OsX 10.9 DP1 .dmg and mount it Step 2: Download the latest myHack Step 3: Run myHack and install onto at least an 8gb flash drive, then replace the Extras folder with mine Step 4: Reboot, Hold F12 choose to boot from USB (I had the usb plugged into the left side port, if it matters...) Step 5: Boot the installer with flags -x -v Step 6: Format the drive you are installing it onto as GUID and name it "Macintosh HD" Step 7: Install, at the end it will ask if you want to remove "xxx" kext, say ok for the 3 .kexts Step 7: Choose to use the Extras folder on the USB drive that you copied in step 3 Step 8: At the end, just click continue and then click the apple at the top right of the screen and choose restart Step 9: Hold F12 Again and choose to boot from USB. Step 10: Boot from the myHack installer again, but this time only boot with -v Step 11: Once you are back at the installer choose utilities --> myHack and run myFix on the partition you installed on. Step 12: Once that finishes, go back into utilities --> myHack and this time install chameleon on the same partition. Step 13: Reboot once more (you should be able to remove the USB key now and set your bios to boot from HDD) That should be it... This is just how I got it working... there are most likely better ways of doing it... Hope it helps someone! So far everything is working just as good as it was in 10.8.4 no glitches that I have found yet. EDIT ---> Updated to DP2 and replaced the USB3 kext with this one that Jake suggested Boot with -f or add it to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist file for best results
  12. My model did not come with bluetooth so I don't know about that... however, I use this and it works perfectly: http://www.rocketfishproducts.com/products/computer-accessories/RF-MRBTAD.html Here it is on ebay as well: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/rocketfish-micro-bluetooth-usb-adapter
  13. For usb3 delete / put in a folder: IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext & IOUSBFamily.kext And use the one below instead: http://www.mastermindesigns.com/mastermindesigns/images/latitude-e6430/GenericUSBXHCI.kext.zip Here is the source I got it from: https://code.google.com/p/os-x-generic-usb3/downloads/list Which works good for me and is smaller than the other one that is floating around the e6430 posts. I am using a USB 3 to HDMI adaptor and it works great! See screenshot below: Here is the link to the one I got: http://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Multiple-2048x1152-1920x1200-DisplayLink/dp/B007L6NYAO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370878784&sr=8-1&keywords=plugable+usb+3+hdmi And the USB 3 Display link driver for it for os x: http://www.displaylink.com/support/mac_downloads.php A picture of my workstation in use:
  14. Anybody have any ideas on getting full sleep? I have tried suspending to disk only in terminal via: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 1 but this made is so that as soon as I try to get out of sleep the computer just restarts and I have to do -v -x at boot, let it restart and then restart again to get the disk error to go away. has anyone tried the sleepenabler.kext? anyone have any luck? *edit DON'T TRY TO INSTALL SLEEPENABLER.KEXT , It doesn't work. It would really be nice to have full sleep now I feel like this laptop is really coming together and becoming more and more compatible with osx by the day. http://etherealmind.com/osx-hibernate-mode/
  15. DinEsHMG created a fixed DSDT.aml file to make the Dell docking station work for my computer here is the link to the new DSDT.aml file for the Dell Latitude E6430 with the HD4000 and NVS 5200 http://mastermindesigns.com/mastermindesigns/images/latitude-e6430/DockingStationWorkingNVS-5200-DinEsHMG-DSDT.aml.zip here is a link to my full EXTRA folder: http://mastermindesigns.com/mastermindesigns/images/latitude-e6430/Extra.zip The docking station now works! I will test it with both monitors tomorrow both DVI ports are working! Consider donating to him for his awesome work via paypal as he really needs it for his life right now PAYPAL: [email protected] Both DVI ports now working. *edit, but only 1 at a time...
  16. Here is a link to the port replicator / dock I am using at work. It has 2 DVI out / Mini Display Port Ports. http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&sku=331-6304 It would be amazing if the 2 dvi ports could work
  17. Here are the Kexts I am using in my Extras/Extensions folder: And here is a link to my extras folder if anyone has the same computer as me: http://www.mastermindesigns.com/mastermindesigns/images/latitude-e6430/Extra.zip Download, unzip, replace your extras folder with mine and run "myfix" I figured out how to at least get my display to go black when the screen sleeps by editing the org.chameleon.Boot.plist like so: Here is a link to download my org.chamelon.Boot.plist file: http://www.mastermindesigns.com/mastermindesigns/images/latitude-e6430/org.chamelon.Boot.plist I believe what made it work was the "darkwake" Kernel flag Can someone help with trying to get full sleep and the Dell Dock station working? THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME! Thanks!
  18. I have just tried installing EDP and was impressed so far, what a great idea! I think it fixed a few problems I was having (I was using a wrong DSDT and SDT.aml or whatever), but it also messed my sound and trackpad and a few other things up as well. I just had to put back the kexts I was using for my system from this page https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2327-dell-latitude-e6430/ that Jake Lo put together. With Jake Lo's packages I was able to get everything working except sleep and HDMI out. After installing EDP HDMI out works! Actually, it works awesome! See photos below Screen sleep no longer works fine like it used to, it just goes to a white screen... See photo below (furthest to the right) ,And full sleep crashes the system entirely and needs to be rebooted, so I set the computer to never sleep for now. most of the time its plugged in anyways, but It would be great if someone could come up with a sleep solution by editing the DSDT. I haven't tested the docking station yet, but will on monday... it most likely will need to be fixed by editing the DSDT as well, but who knows! Thanks!
  19. THANKS JAKE! I will test this out later today! And Thanks Leppy700m I will look into fine tuning my DSDT and see what I can come up with, I don't have a whole lot of time either.
  20. I am wondering this as well... leppy700m, it looks like we have pretty similar setups. Have you figured out how to get sleep working? I used the files from Jake Lo's tutorial and replaced my wifi card with the one he recomended and it works great. I have a docking station, but I don't get any video out of the DVI ports. the USB ports work I think... but I did have to roll back the kexts to the USB2 ones.
  21. Jake, Thank you for creating this tutorial, it worked great! I am typing this from my Latitude E6430 now. I have a slightly different version than you and so almost everything works. The only thing not working for me right now is sleep, and possibly HDMI out (haven't tried it yet) attached is a screen shot of my system.
