Hi.

After I upgraded to 10.8.2 I lost audio as I expected. I have installed the ALC887 from the Multibeast 5.0.2 and it works now, but I only get digital output meaning I can hear sound trough my USB headphones but analogue "line-out" is not showing for my speakers.

I had this problem when I installed Mountain Lion in the first place, and I got it to work somehow but I forgot where I found the solution, been searching for it 2 days now and no luck.

If someone knows how to deal with this please respond, I will post a solution if I find it myself.

Thanks,

-Dino

I already tried the exact thing but no luck.

Now I removed AppleHDA and HDAEnabler and rebooted without installing any kexts, and somehow USB audio still works. (no line-out). I guess something else is required. My audio codec is ALC887, dont really know what else to try, voodoo kexts dont work for me also.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm also on 10.8.2 and this worked for me:

remove appleHDA.kext and HDAEnabler.kext in /S/L/E

use Multibeast 4.6.1 (for Lion)

do not select easybeast install or UserDSDT install

Select

ALC887/888b from /Audio/Realtek ALCxx/Non-DSDT HDAEnabler

and

ALC888b/887 from /Audio/Realtek ALCxx/Patched AppleHDA

reboot.

hope this helps.

Thanks to the tonymacx86 community, I have a fully working hackintosh.

Without AppleHDA.kext installed, audio does not show in your IOReg. Run MultiBeast 5.0.2/Audio/Realtek ALC8xx/Without DSDT/ALC887Legacy. Reply with a new IOReg.

I just did and it fixed it, fully working now. I was doing the same thing but always went with the "current version", I guess legacy is the way to go.

Thanks a lot!
