Hello,

I recently purchased docking station to my HP ProBook 6460b. Display Port is working, but USB only for power supply. I've performed instructions in instalation guide written by RehabMan. I also dream about using audio 3.5 jack in that docking station but i don't know is it possible
Any help ? :)

Read Probook guide, "USB customization". It is likely the ports on the dock are disabled by the model specific USB SSDT.
 
This is my ioreg file. Laptop is described in my profile (HP 6460b probook)

I don't think you tested your ports with -uia_ignore_rmcf.
Read "USB customization" again. Carefully.
 
Ok, sorry, i didn't see that. After booting with that flag usb in docking station is working. Here is a ioreg:

Looks like the only additional port is HP24 (a 4 port hub is there from the dock).
This would be the diff:
Code:
SPEEDY-NUC:probook.git rehabman$ git diff hotpatch/SSDT-USB-6x60.asl 
diff --git a/hotpatch/SSDT-USB-6x60.asl b/hotpatch/SSDT-USB-6x60.asl

Please test.
 
Thanks :) Works great!

What do you think about audio ports in docking station. Is it possible to make them work?

Audio ports would require changes to AppleHDA XML...
You may want to read up on it (read about AppleHDA patching, Intel HDA specification, etc).
