HDA Wizard - Simple tool for AppleHDA.kext

I wrote a simple tool for AppleHDA.kext in Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and Lion 10.7.

It was designed for quick sound repair after update, without any rollbacks.

It allows you to insert your own layout and Platforms xml files.

It has also binpatch support.

It will set permissions, rebuild cache and prelink kernel.

It has drag and drop support.

It will not create any files, it will only help you to install them.

You still need a DSDT patch, or HDAEnabler.kext with proper LayoutID.


Example :

If you want me to include more defaults binpatches, post a command like this:


sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x85\x08\xec\x10|\x88\x08\xec\x10|g' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleHDA

I couldn't install proper audio and graphic on my machine, somehow i manage to instal lion 10.7.2.

Sorry but I new to hackintosh thing, which is really not as simple as i thought, Lion is working smooth with ethernet installed with the help of MB{censored} but I failed to install graphics and sound, I do know something about kext but dont know how to edit or install it and from where to get the right kext file.

any help would be appreciated.
