10.6.X on X60/T60/X61 (CoreDuo, Core2Duo / GMA950, GMA3100)

#1 Post by Sebinouse » Mon Apr 12, 2010 5:18 pm

One post to summarize my installation method of 10.6.X on my X60t (based on Martin255's and Silencer's DSDT guides)

I'll try to keep this first post up to date ...

My laptop:
Lenovo X60t (6363-AQ8)
Intel CoreDuo 1,67 GHz (L2400)
3 Go / 320 Go / FW 400 / SD Card
Bluetooth / Wifi AR5BXB6 / Tablet (non multitouch)
GMA 950 / 12.1" (1024x768) ...

(This guide has also been successfully tested on X60s and T60 by xene here)

What you need:
- Snow Leopard 10.6 Retail DVD (29$ only !)
- 8 Go USB Key ("USB Key")
- 2,5 External HDD ("HDD Snow")
- Mac/Hack under 10.5/10.6 ("MacOSX")
- This Folder : MacPNT Package (current version is "2011 02 15")

(I've made a BootCD_MacPNT (X60 with a 10.6.0 Retail DVD) if you don't have a Mac/Hack or a 8GB USB Key and if you don't need MBR ... Just follow the "Step 2" of iBoot guide and come back to "First Boot")

0) Custom Package
1) USB Key
2) 10.6 Installation
3) First Boot
4) Update
5) SleepFix
6) Temperatures and Fan Control

0) Custom Package

- If you have a CoreDuo and a GMA950 : you don't have to modify anything ! You can go to the step 1) !
- If you have a Core2Duo and a GMA950 : use the "X60 (Core2Duo / GMA950)" files.
  • Replace DSDT.aml and smbios.plist in /Extra
    Replace LegacyX60T.kext in /Extra/Extensions
- If you have a Core2Duo and a GMA3100 : use the "X61 (Core2Duo / GMA3100)" files.
  • Replace DSDT.aml and smbios.plist in /Extra
    Delete LegacyX60T.kext and VoodooHDA.kext from /Extra/Extensions
    Copy LegacyX61T.kext and Intel82566MM.kext in /Extra/Extensions
    Copy AppleHDA.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/
1) USB Key
- On "MacOSX"
- Format the "USB Key" (HFS+) and the "HDD Snow" (HFS+)
- Restore Snow Leopard 10.6 Retail DVD on the "USB Key" (with disk utility)
- Copy /MacPNT folder on "USB Key"
- Install "Chameleon RC4-AsereBLN-1.1.9" ON THIS "USB KEY" (be careful this could damage your own hardware)
- Copy (or replace) /Extra folder from the package to the "USB Key" root folder
- If you need a MBR partition table :
  • - Launch "ShowAllFiles" and select "Show"
  • - Replace:
    • OSInstall.mpkg in /Volumes/"USB Key"/System/Installation/Packages
    • OSInstall in /Volumes/"USB Key"/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/
  • - Launch once again "ShowAllFiles" and select "Hide"
  • (The files of the packages are made for a 10.6.0 Retail DVD, and for a 10.6.3 Retail DVD)
- Launch "pfix" and select your "USB Key"

2) 10.6 Installation
- Boot on the "USB Key"
- Install Snow Leopard on your "HDD Snow"
- On reboot, Switch off your laptop

3) First Boot
- On "MacOSX"
- Install "Chameleon RC4-AsereBLN-1.1.9" ON THE "HDD SNOW" (be careful this could damage your own hardware)
- Copy /Extra on the "HDD Snow" partition with the one from the package
- Copy /MacPNT somewhere on "HDD Snow"
- Launch "pfix" on the "HDD Snow" partition
- Reboot on the "HDD Snow" partition

4) Update 10.6.X
- Download the "Combo Update 10.6.X"
- Launch "pfix"
- Reboot
(Successfully tested with 10.6.1, 10.6.2, 10.6.3v1.1, 10.6.4, 10.6.5, 10.6.6 ...)
Note: if you use "AppleHDA.kext" in /S/L/E/ replace it after each update before reboot and repair permissions ...

5) SleepFix
- Turn off "use secured virtual memory" in System Preferences->Security ( to get rid of an annoying starting message "Error 192 ...")
- Turn On "startup automatically after a power failure" in System Preferences->Energy Saver
- Install "SleepWatcher" and "SleepWatcher Startup Items"
- Copy "rc.sleep" and "rc.wakeup" in /etc/
- In Terminal :
  • chmod +X /etc/rc.sleep
  • chmod +X /etc/rc.wakeup
- Reboot

6) Temperatures and Fan Control
- Copy the "DSDT.aml" file corresponding to your computer in /Extra/
- Copy "FakeSMC.kext" in E/E/
- Install "iStat v2"
- Run pfix or kextutility
- Reboot



What still doesn't work:
- VGA Out mode "Mirror" *
- IrDa **
- Modem **
- PCMCIA Slot ***
- Multitouch Tablet ** (May also work natively)

*: "Desktop Extension" mode works vanilla, you can use this program to deal with mirror issues : Mirror (thanks nuskoolkiddie)
** : not tested yet
*** : Successful report with old 10.4 kext (thanks nuskoolkiddie)




What has been fixed in DSDT:
- IOATAFamily
- Native SATA
- Intel GMA950 / Intel GMA3100
- Brightness Control
- SpeedStep (P-States and C-States, CoreDuo and Core2Duo)
- HDA Disabler
- EHCI Fix
- ...
If this file does not work properly you can use DSDTstable.aml. Just press any key during the chameleon boot (black screen with chameleon on the top) and type

Code: Select all

DSDT=/Extra/DSDTstable.aml

Great stuff! Have you tried adidasprince's PS2 kext from here? If not, give it a go - works fantastic with trackpoint.

Yes but it doesn't work at all for me ! (I have tried your latest VoodooPS2Controller.kext) ... I don't know why ... maybe because I don't have any trackpad.
For the moment ApplePS2Controller is enough for me : trackpoint works perfectly (scroll with the middle button by software), I created my own keyboard layout, several Fn Key work (Fn+F4 Sleep, Fn+F5 Bluetooth, FN+PrtScr ...)

Do you have any clue for the VGA Out like another DSDT patch ?

I think it should be clarified that your DSDT only works for Core Duo X60t. I had to make my own DSDT for the Core 2 Duo, I'll upload my E/E folder later today. I've also working VGA out (with proper EFI string, needed it after upgrading to 10.6.2/10.6.3 for my SXGA+ dislplay to work at it's native resolution).

(I think I don't have a sleepenabler.kext, it should just work with the patched DSDT methinks.)

EDIT: scratch that. you were talking about the sleepwatcher for the keyboard/trackpoint. i need that too, missed your point.

Later..

I used to have an EFI string for my Intel GMA950, but later on I patched my DSDT to get native support. I never tried VGA Out with the EFI String ... I will give it a try as soon as a get my VGA screen back ... Thanks for the advice !

You're right ... there are several parts related to MY hardware :
  • Vanilla SpeedStep in DSDT, Smbios.plist and LegacyX60t.kext : Power management for L2400 with a MBP1,1 profile
  • Tablet in LegacyX60t.kext : added TabletEnabler and Apple16x50 part for tablet support
I guess that's all ...

Ok I figured out that only the "Mirror" option does not work ... but the "Desktop Extension" option works vanilla (with or without EFI String ...) :P

I guess the mirror option requires exactly the same resolution and frequency on both screen ... which is not possible with my laptop and my TV ... :wink:

I'm sorry for the delay. I haven't forgotten, but I sent my x60t in for a final "update" before warranty is over (hinges were loose and the fan was rattling). I hope it will be back at the end of the week.

You should give a try with the guide from the first post with two more kexts in Extra/Extensions/to enable Core2Duo PowerManagement :
This might boot and then you can apply the power management part of Silencer's Guide.

Let me know if that works for you ...

PS: Can you give more details about your X60/X61 and why not a DSDT.aml file so I can try to modify my DSDT/Smbios to make it work for core2duo

I just upgraded my X60t with a 2GB PC5300 SoDimm in the available slot, so now I have 3GB ...

After many hour google about the max memory of this computer, I ended with :
  • CoreDuo Processor (Intel 945 Chipset) : 3 GB memory max
But this upgrade broke sleep :evil: ... Half Moon Light still blinks ...

I tried to change hibernation mode :
  • 0 : doesn't work
  • 1 : works
  • 3 : doesn't work
I changed the memory slots (hibernation 3):
  • Dimm1 : 1GB and Dimm2 : None ... OK
  • Dimm1 : 2GB and Dimm2 : None ... Not OK
  • Dimm1 : 2GB and Dimm2 : 1GB ... Not OK
  • Dimm1 : 1GB and Dimm2 : 2GB ... Not OK
My smbios is a MacBookPro1,1 ... which only handle 2GB (2x1GB) of memory max ... so I guess the problem comes from here (Source).

So I will try to change my SMBIOS profile ... but thats not gonna be easy as power management relies on it ...

Any help would be appreciated to solve this tricky issue ...

@Silencer : Do you think I can change MacbookPro1,1 in MaBookPro2,1 in SMBIOS and in the Legacy Kext and keep the rest untouched ... so I can have CoreDuo SpeedStep and 3GB RAM Sleep ? (or do I have to change everything in the legacy kext ?) ...thanks

Trying this out tonight on my X60s.

You have..
- Replace /Extra folder with the one from the package on the "USB Key"
On the USB Key that I restored SL to, I'm not finding an "/Extra" folder to replace. Obviously there is one in the MacPNT folder, well two that I see.

The installation of Chameleon will create this folder, just replace it afterward ...

I did the install of Chameleon, set Finder to display all files and folders, still didn't see a folder to replace. So all I did was just copy over the Extra folder.

So far it seems to be installing just fine, albeit a bit slow.

Hi all, i am new to this forum (and new to the whole thing to install SL on a thinkpad) and glad i found you guys !

basically i used the guide of this thread to install SL on my x60S (1704-LG5) L2400. Bios-Version: 2.18
i had to do two minor changes:

1. i experienced the same as charles. after chamelion install onto my usb stick - there was no /extra folder. so i just copied the one from MacPNT to USB stick.

2. i had to switch to the stable DSDT.aml to make it through the install procedure.

so i can announce that for me the install guide worked on a x60s as well. :D

theres still things to do, so i'll keep you posted.

Install went great. Other than I have no sound, or Trackpoint. Not sure why just yet.

Do the .kexts from the /Extra folder get loaded at startup? Or do they need to be in the /S/L/E area? They aren't in the S/L/E folder.

I actually had to run pfix 2 or 3 times in order to have sound & the trackpoint. One of these days I'm going to get around playing with resuming from sleep. Been busy working on a client's real mac!

I don't see why, but that was the right thing to try ... I will also update the first post ! thanks !

That is the purpose of this folder : add kexts (sort of drivers) in a folder that can't be affected by updates. They are loaded by the bootloader as SLE ...

I had some issues with VoodooHDA.kext : it was not correctly "kextcached" by pfix ... can you try this command on terminal :

Code: Select all

sudo kextload /Volumes/"your HDD"/Extra/Extensions/VoodooHDA.kext
If now you have sound ... it is only a kextcache issue ...you can try "KextUtility"

And finally Trackpoint ... as you can read on this forum ... this has been the trickiest issue I had :
  • my X60T has no Trackpad (so i have to delete the trackpad.kext from /plugins inside the PS2 kext)
  • In this configuration, the PS2 kext breaks sleep ... I have to use SleepWatcher to fix this ...
Can you trys this in terminal to see if it works :

Code: Select all

sudo kextload /Volumes/"Your HDD"/Extra/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
sudo kextload /Volumes/"Your HDD"/Extra/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext
if not you can replace the kext by the one from the second post of this tread (Silencer's post) and then run pfix or kextutility ...

Keep me posted !

Thats' a good news ... I've been able to test pcmcia ... Can you give us more details about this installation ?

Yes, I second that.

It would be interesting to see if I can use a PCMCIA Ethernet or sound card.

In the past, when I would get PCMCIA working, it would be at the cost of sleep.
When I put the X60t to sleep with a PCMCIA card in it (fully working), it would not wake from sleep and the only resolution was to hold down the power button. :(

Did you tried the "SleepWatcher trick" (to unload the PCMCIA kext),as I did in the first post to manually unload AppleACPIPS2.kext/VoodooHDA.kext ?

I guess so. I used this method with a dual boot with XP ...

I found a message from Silencer somewhere in this forum :
Silencer wrote:Once you install OSX and proper booter (AsereBLN for example) you won't be able to boot to Windows7 straight away. You will have to boot with Windows7 installation DVD and then get to the repair console and use DISKPART tool to switch active partition back to Windows7 boot partition. You can find lots of guides on the web how to do this. Just be ready.

To confirm in step 3. After installing SL on the "HDD Snow", put the "HDD Snow" in the laptop and then reboot the laptop, right?

In step 3, do you copy both /extra and /MacPNT in the root directory of the "HDD Snow"?

In step 4, if the retail disk is 10.6.3, do I need update? is this a necessary step?

I'm a Mac newbie, in step 5, when you say copy "rc.sleep" and " in rc.wakeup" /etc/, how?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
