    [GUIDE] Mac OS 10.8 on Sony Vaio SA/SB/SE


    just back to 10.8.4

    1.upgrade to 5 with app store, can't enter the desktop. delete AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and It can enter, install 196.0.0, it can sleep but can't wake up as fast as before, sometimes even black screen.

    2. Bluetooth has been changed. There is not AppleBluetoothHCIControllerUSBTransport.kext in plugins any more. It affect my AR3011 even add ID.

    3. Wifi works as good as before after the ID has been changed to 2a from 2b for my AR9285, which become to 9280 on Mac and 928X on Win7 after the change.

    I also reinstall a new 10.8.5 but same as upgrade, so back to 4 again.

    [GUIDE] Mac OS 10.8 on Sony Vaio SA/SB/SE


    Working OSX 10.8.5, Battery, WiFi & USB3....

    Hi CyberWalrus and fellow Sony Vaio SA/SB/SE OSX Users

    Youíll have to forgive me but this is going to be a long post, hang on in there though because you might find it worth the read.

    I hope you remember me, I worked with you on getting OSX Lion running on our Vaioís last year and Iíve been very happy with running 10.7.4 since then. Just to recap my laptop is a Sony Vaio VPCSE25E 15Ē 1920x1080 , i7-2640M, 8 Gig RAM 128GB SSD for OSX and the DVD-RW replaced with a caddy containing a 750GB, 7200RPM HDD with Ubuntu and Win 7x64 installed on it.

    Last month I gave your latest Vaiopack a go with OSX 10.8.2, but it would not boot half the time and if it did it was unstable with sleep/wake issues, no battery. . . . etc, it just didnít feel stable enough for me to commit to ML, so I went back to my trusted 10.7.4 build.

    Since then Iíve added a few other CustoMAC's and a iPhone to my gadget collection and am using iMessages daily. Now that we have OSX 10.8.5 and some big updates to Chimera and MultiBeast I thought Iíd give it anther shot. After a fair bit of work I seem to have got a very stable 10.8.5 build with just about everything working, Iíve run it for over two days now and its not crashed, locked or KPíd ,it sleeps and wakes fine, the battery indicator seems to be working well as does the USB3 port and all the other stuff which was working before.

    The following is my new installation method, it relies on some components from your latest Vaiopack and a some new kextís, since you did the hard work with the DSDT and SSDT edits, it seems only fair to post this here rather than a new thread, if you and others find it works then maybe you can update the Vaiopack ?

    Just remember this is on a SE so it may or my not work on SA/SB no guarantees...

    Important: I used the very latest Mountain Lion Installer, I deleted the existing one in my ĎApplicationsí folder and used the AppStore to re-download the Latest OSX Mountain Lion (10.8.5 Supplement 1.0) see here for more info:-

    http://www.tonymacx86.com/382-update...pp-10-8-5.html

    Download the latest versions of UniBeast (2.1.1) and Multibeast (5.5.2), and create a new USB OSX 10.8.5 installer as detailed in the Pre Installation section of the guide at the start of this thread, make sure to select 10.8 and Laptop Support as the installation type in Unibeast.

    Before continuing make sure you have downloaded and extracted the Vaiopack and the additional files attached to the bottom of this post.

    Perform the basic OSX Install as detailed in the Installation Section of the guide and continue on to the first part of the Post Installation section, copy the correct DSDT to the desktop, run the new MultiBeast and select the options as per the guide, also select 'USB 3.0 Universal' and be-sure to install 'FakeSMC' and the two Plugins and the HWMonnitor App, its useful to find out if your CPU is throttling ok, I also added the TRIM Enabler as Iím using a SSD.

    Here is what the Multibeast options should Look Like:-

    [GUIDE] Mac OS 10.8 on Sony Vaio SA/SB/SE-sony-multibeast-options.jpg


    Once Multibeast has done its thing is where things start to differ a little bit from the original guide, run Kext Utility and install ONLY the following kextís from the Vaiopack :-


    • AppleACPIPlatform.kext
    • AppleHDA.kext
    • AppleIntelCPUPowerManagment.kext
    • IOAudioFamily.kext


    Vaio SE owners should install the two kextís in the SE only folder and the Trackpad.prefplane as per the guide, SA/SB users should use whatever trackpad solution you have been using.

    Next Install the two kextís from the kext folder in my attachment:-


    • ACPIBatteryManager.kext
    • toledaARPT.kext (Enabler for AR9287 .. etc)


    Make sure you make all the SSDT changes as per the original guide and re-boot & prey

    With this setup my Vaio SE is running 10.8.5 really well, I have had no issues with the USB3 port, so far i've used several USB-2 memory stick's, a USB mouse and a USB3 External HDD for TimeMachine (seems to run about twice as quick as a standard USB 2 port) its never locked up so i think it should be good for SA/SB, seems to be fine after sleep too.

    ML seems to change screen resolution just before it opens OSX which causes a slight distortion of the Apple logo before it loads the desktop, to solve this I added:-

    Code:
        <key>Graphics Mode</key>
        <string>1600x900x32</string>
    to 'org.chameleon.Boot.plist' in /Extra, change this to whatever resolution you run your OSX desktop at.

    If you want to get iMessages working you will need to add an additional file to the modules folder in /Extra, see my thread here :-

    How to Fix iMessage

    If you've just installed OSX don't worry about cleaning the old iMessage setup data, just install the file as directed towards the bottom of the post.

    If after doing all the above everything is working for you and you want to complete the OSX experience then install the package in the 'Misc' folder called 'Carllion' in my attachment to add the Apple boot-up chime !

    We still got to try and get the power management a little better and 'About This Mac' will still cause a Finder restart (not bothered) but as it stands now I think this is good progress and puts us in a good shape for Mavericks when Apple finally make it public, let me know how you get on.

    Cheers
    Jay




    Additional Info on New Kext's

    I can not take the credit for these new kext's I found both of them on GitHub after a lot of searching through forums.

    The battery kext is written by RehabMan whoís work is legendary in these forums, it seems to work quite well, reporting the battery state correctly, no evil voodoo required !, however very occasionally it will put an ĎXí 0n the battery icon when waking from sleep, closing the lid and re-opening usually gets it back after which it wont do it again until the next cold boot. There is a debug version of the battery injector kext available that will write debug info to the main log file which may be helpful to us, full info and the debug version this project can be found here :-

    https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Battery-Driver

    The other kext is written by Hackingtosh master Toleda, known best for his work hacking AppleHDA and getting HDMI audio working, itís an enabler for the AR9287 and a few other common PCIe WiFi cards, lots of good info on this subject here:-

    https://github.com/toleda/airport_pcie-hm

    More information on the Carillon Package can be found here :-

    https://github.com/nicoSWD/Carillon

    Don't try any of the alternate versions, the correct version is the one in the attachment.

    Unless the ACPIPlatform rollback is necessary for something else, I have a feeling you could use the "Sony VAIO S" battery patches for your DSDT instead. See here for instructions on adding the repo to MaciASL: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch

    It would allow you to implement Ivy Bridge power management (if you have Ivy CPU)...

    RehabMan,

    Ok I used your version of MaciASL to add the VAIO-S changes to my DSDT, got one compile error :-
    Code:
    32 Error    Name already exists in scope (\TNOT)
    I think i'm safe in deleting that line ?, well i did and it compiled fine, I'm running the new DSDT now, seemed to boot fine, and all seems well so far, will see if the edits help although my CPU is Sandy Bridge not Ivy.

    The modified AppleACPIPlatform.kext you were referring to, is needed other wise the system does not wake up correctly after a lid close, well it does but there is no backlight, using the modified kext seems to sort that, i know it should be done in the DSDT but my knowledge of DSDT editing is very limited.

    Cheers
    Jay

    Yes, very common error (I actually think it is a bug in the iasl disassembler). There is a patch in my repo also for it (it removes the line just as you did).

    I'm running the new DSDT now, seemed to boot fine, and all seems well so far, will see if the edits help although my CPU is Sandy Bridge not Ivy.
    Then it is not as critical to run with current AppleACPIPlatform...

    The modified AppleACPIPlatform.kext you were referring to, is needed other wise the system does not wake up correctly after a lid close, well it does but there is no backlight, using the modified kext seems to sort that, i know it should be done in the DSDT but my knowledge of DSDT editing is very limited.
    Yes, there is probably more DSDT edits to be done in similar way of the battery. If you post your DSDT I'll look... I could always add the patches to the battery patch even if they are not really battery patches... (with comments, of course).

    [GUIDE] Mac OS 10.8 on Sony Vaio SA/SB/SE


    RehabMan,

    I'd appreciate it if you could take a look at the DSDT - i've attached my original one and the new one with your Sony S edits, On the whole the system is stable when running OSX, i'm just not sure about that AppleACPIPlatform... (V1.3.6) which i've also attached.

    Cheers dude, you helped me a few months back with a new variant of the bluetooth firmware loader, which i've used on three different builds (same card in each)

    Cheers
    Jay

    Update: The DSDT has had quite a few people's input to get it to where it is now, with Cyberwalrus doing most of the work, the first post contains the link to the GitHub repo. The main problem for me (when using latest AppleACPIPlatform 1.8) is that the system does not always sleep when the lid is closed, then when you open it again it will go to sleep so you have to wake it again, sometimes no backlight .. i wonder if it is this behaviour that is causing the X on your battery manager ?

    I suspect that they may be a some methods not defined correctly in the DSDT which stop it working with the latest AppleACPIPlatform (1.8) as opposed to the modded AppleACPIPlatform (1.3.6). One further point when i used this DSDT on 10.7.4 the system detected the Power button correctly, under ML it does not, at least not for me.
