Hi All,

after having a lot of trouble trying to get thugs like the webcam etc to work on my hack I decided to share my intsall with you here. I initially installed using the TonyMac method but the forum there is pretty much useless if you are trying to install a hack on anything but a Gigabyte or Asus Mobo…. Subsequently I did an install to a separate drive using the iHazard 10.6.6 disk but hate the way they have modded the installed windows etc… However it was with that intsall I got my webcam working,,, and figured out how… basically you need a USB fix added to your com.apple.Boot.plist My final plist is as below… The important entries for the USB Fix are the EHCIacquire, UHCIreset, and USBBusFic key entries.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>DSDT</key>
<string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string>
<key>EHCIacquire</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=i386</string>
<key>Legacy Logo</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>SMBIOS</key>
<string>/Extra/smbios.plist</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>1</string>
<key>UHCIreset</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>USBBusFix</key>
<string>Yes</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Essentially this is what got me to an almost perfect install… Only thing still not working is SleepEnabler. I use a patched DSDT (pretty easy to do) and smbios.plist so hope this helps some folk… I actually bought 4 webcams having read up that some workout of the box or with maccam...
They will in Skype and Messenger bit not in iChat etc without the patch above.

Finally I got rid of the tonymac bootloader and replaced it with Chameleon RC5 which is much nicer… installs a very useful preference pane too and if you check this out you can graphical add and remove elements of the above-mentioned patch

If you're going to hack a DP43TF from scratch I would recommend iBoot plus an Original Snow Leo 10.6.3 install disk, Initially perhaps use multibeast and kext helper post-install and after installing upgrades to 10.6.6 until you know what you are doing.. Then back up your kext folders just in case… at least till you build your DSDT. If you have a disk you are using for time machine…. erase it with OS journalled and GUID part table.. Copy your good installation to it with Carbon Copy… then wipe your original and reinstall using iBoot plus Retail Disk and then load Chameleon,,, options and install your DSDT and SMBios lists...

Using the original retail disc you get the full set of Desktop Backgrounds and Screensavers and none of those egotistical mods such as those found with the the iHazard Updater and app install windows to mention but a few...
