Much faster hibernate wakeup

Use this script to get faster hibernate wakeup time

pmset -a hibernatemode 29

system will dump many of inactive apps to swap before dumping memory to sleepimage file, so wakeup goes much faster.

Again AppleUSBUHCI and Acer

remember this?

Turns out the problems caused by builtin bluetooth module, which is attached to USB3 (not usb3.0) port.

So to fix that problem, which happens a lot even if it’s “Safe Boot”, I have to exclude my USB3 from AppleUSBUHCI’s plist.

Some usefull table

USB1 - 0x2830 or 0x3a34
USB2 - 0x2831 or 0x3a35
USB3 - 0x2832 or 0x3a36 <-- BT here
USB4 - 0x2834 or 0x3a37
USB5 - 0x2835 or 0x3a38
USB6 - 0x3a39

Open /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBUHCI.kext/Contents/Info.plist


replace with

<string>0x28308086 0x28318086 0x28348086 0x28358086</string>

Apple releases sources for 10.6.8

Apple just had released sources for 10.6.8 xnu, which include new iopcifamily-144 which seems to be same as Lion’s

10.6.8 Released

Just use old update guide

  • fermi users – reinstall geforce/nvda kexts from 10.6.7 imac2011 update after installing 10.6.8.
  • Got panic from appleintelcpupm kext durring installing (have speedstep activated via dsdt), it could be best to use nullcpupm durring installation.
  • New applehda was changed too much, easier to use 10.6.7′s one.
  • New IOPCIFamily is same as Lion’s, looking forware to 10.6.8 source release if have problems use old iopcifamily and appleacpiplatform kexts.
  • fixed atheros wifi with installing this form 10.6.7 update – /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/Apple80211Monitor.bundle

10.6.8 qe_ce_exotic removed

NVidia released fermi drivers for 10.6.8 – link
256.02.25f1 vs 256.02.05f01 from imac’s update, not much changes.

ati and 10.6.7

Nothing new regarding ATI cards support in 10.6.7 beta.

Nothing got broken(for me at least), but nothing was added.

Same for nvidia, no fermi support out of box yet.

QE/CI radeons patch for 10.6.6 (Updated)

There was rumors about 10.6.6 ATIRadeonX2000.kext doesn’t require binary patching, but these turned out to be negative.

So here it is, the patch for 10.6.6, support was added for anything in range of 0×9440-0×9462, but I don’t promise every card in that range will work :P .

Revision 2 released, should fix 4890 in 32-bit mode.

MacOSX 10.6.6 released

Nothing special, just use regular update guide.

For example my Hackint0sh was updated via software update menu without any special movements, just like on mac (speedstep fixed via dsdt)

Patch for radeons 4890 to come later.

Radeon 6xxx OSX support status

As of 10.6.6 beta release, atiradeonX3000.kext – the accelerator, it sets up card and provide bridge for using hardware accelerated opengl/quartz extreme/core image.

So, ATIRadeonX3000.kext supports radeon 6xx0 series card (already released 6870/6850 and upcoming tomorrow 6950/6970).

But, OSX still missing the framebuffer driver for 6xxx series. Framebuffer drivers sets up output screen, manages resolutions, multiple displays, does power management and etc.

New fermi drivers for osx

According to nvidia we should see some new fermi drivers for osx soon

an here it is – link

MacOSX 10.6.5 released

Apple released new osx udpate (yeah I know, I’m a bit late, thanks to guys discovered ps3 psn hack)

to update use any update guide for snow leopard ( )

What’s new:
exfat support
Old 10.6.2 ati framebuffer will not work with 10.6.5, but new, 10.6.5 ati framebuffer seems to work fine, at least for my 4850
