Worked for me though I think I lost the mic jack as a source. Was a bit involved to do. Not for faint of heart.

im not sure i totally agree with akki, its not that hard to do, but i managed to mess it up the first time, now however, it works. when running updateExtra. realize it takes a bit of time! it took up to 3 to 5 minutes in my case..

ive tested mic input.. works.. external mic.. works.. headphone and speakers.. work.. switching works.. and it still works after sleeping..

i dont notice any sound glitching (the 5 seconds interval noiseburst) but im not sure how that worked.. as ive never experienced the symptom(never tried other fixes)

ill continue to test this fix.. if i find problems, ill post.. otherwise.. its all good..

my dsdt file dose not contain "AZAL"?

can any one please explain a little more . like how many AZAL is there .

thanks

update*

my OS is MAC OSX 10.6.1
There is no AZAL in there, just swap the HDEF section (deleting the existing HDEF) and add the other section where flames indicates. Also, I have not tested this with 10.6.1, I am running 10.6.2. If audio is gone, and you've done everything else right, then your dsdt is not right. Did it compile?

PS. The AppleHDA.kext (unmodified original) version is 1.7.9a4 for OSX 10.6.2

Hello

I actually just update it to 10.6.2 and then it works the audio and mic .
so I think this method only works with 10.6.2.

thanks a lot for your help.

Do we know if Merklort is planning on including this fix in the next release of NetBookInstaller, or are they worried more about supporting the 10v at this point?

I'd imagine they will, but I just want to confirm they're working on it before I try editing any files.

The final version of 0.8.3 just came out four days ago, and this thread was started five days ago. It's not like all of a sudden a new feature would be added in at the last minute without testing, there were already plenty of things that were being fixed. (Not chewing you out, just pointing out the timing.) You'll probably see it in the next test version of NetbookInstaller, but considering that it usually takes a few weeks for new releases to come out, you should just put this in your Additional Extensions folder for now.

oops, that i didnt, thats gonna pose a problem the next time i update isnt it..i cant just happily copy it over can i? maybe an updated tutorial how to modify this so it makes use of that folder..

as for putting it in the netbookinstaller.. i think this should probably need to be tested some more..and i think meklort will agree.. maybe he even has other plans..

Agreed. I actually put both the ALC268.kext and the "unmodified" AppleHDA.kext into AdditionalExtentions.

I grabbed an AppleHDA.kext from my macbook. Not sure that was the unmodified they meant but...

Putting it in the additional extensions folder is fine, but unless meklort incorporates this into his installer, the netbook installer will undo what you are doing here manually, and reinstall a modified version of AppleHDA and a virgin dsdt. You will need to manually redo it whether it is sitting in the additional extensions folder or otherwise. So, I wouldn't sweat it as to where it is sitting, frankly.

PS. In reality, an unmodified AppleHDA.kext belongs in /System/Library/Extensions. But I tried to keep the instructions as simple as possible, and not move too many things around behind meklort's back.
PPS. I also lifted the original AppleHDA.kext from my mac as well, as I could not be sure which version on the mini was the latest. A couple posts up, I posted the version number that belongs to 10.6.2.
