Acer Extensa 5220 Works !

Recommended Posts

Hi ! Not sure to putt it here but there is a question to the end.

I can proudly say , that with help of most of the information in here. 
I am now typing from an Acer Extensa 5220 running Niresh 10.8.2 
I was playing around with Hazard 10.6.2 , cause i figured it's an older laptop.
Then i came across an old dvd having this rom. just before i was through and to install win7 back on it. 

So ! what does work and how did i install it. 
installed it with intel X3100 graphics kexts and voodoo hda 2.8.3 sound kext And cmos reset fix. 

After the install it runs great. after installing MS office 2011 and google Chrome. it had a glitch with the video . but that was fixed with a boot flag GraphicsEnabler=No with the boot using multi beast. 

Now the only thing that irritates me is that battery indicator with an X .

Tried a few kexts. like rehabman and a few. but they don't seem to fix it. 
Anyway it works. 

Thanks !!

Little update; 

Voodoo battery status now works . 

It's a single core and has 2GB ram. So it aint super fast. 
The launch pad takes a while to launch and the desktop something is slow. 
Itunes is upgraded to v12. So now i can sync my iphone. Ms Office Works. 
Sound works but the jack plugs dont. the internal mic works to. Most everything for a homework computer works. 

Lion might have bin a tick faster. i might try that in the future but for it works. 

Thanks a bunch
