[GUIDE] How to Activate Microphone on Conexant Codecs and others.

Post by Mirone » 08 Dec 2018, 18:05

There is so much time ago I patched AppleHDA for some codecs Conexant but in almost all of them in most of the line CX207xx we had a problem with the microphones, both internal and external, the time was passing, and have developed some solutions of other people, but that didn't work for me at least, until a few days ago I helped [Local Link Removed for Guests] mending
ALC294 and your headphones did not work as expected, so it was there that he found a Script in [External Link Removed for Guests] that sends commands to hda-verb, and as a result got all the inputs and outputs activated this included ComboJack, so I'm basing on the idea of [External Link Removed for Guests] I did something that solved my problems and it works in most cases for both codecs ALC as well as for Conexant.

1- Download latest version of [External Link Removed for Guests]
2- Mount your EFI partition using [Local Link Removed for Guests]
3- Copy and paste CodecCommander from the Release folder to: EFI ▸ CLOVER ▸ kexts ▸ Other
4- copy the Jack_Fix folder to your Desktop and run Install.command
5- Repair the permissions and rebuild the caches.

Note: Before running the fourth step remember to edit JackFix (Open it in a text editor) according to the settings of your codec,
in this example we used the settings for Conexant CX20757, for more information see the CodecCommander approach [External Link Removed for Guests].

Note 2: AppleALC, aDummy.kext, and patched AppleHDA is fully supported by this process.

JackFix This is a script which updates the widget control when using Headphones, External Mics(ComboJack) and Internal Mics in many cases, In addition to the noise and distortion of audio.

Code: [Local Link Removed for Guests]

hda-verb 0x19 SET_PIN_WIDGET_CONTROL 0x24 --> Enable External Mic (Pin Control (In Enable / VRefEn)
hda-verb 0x1a SET_PIN_WIDGET_CONTROL 0x24 --> Enable Internal Mic (Pin Control (In Enable / VRefEn)
Jack_Fix.zip

Mirone, Just to be sure, am I expected to use a patched AppleHDA alongside this method or AppleALC is supported as well?

Mirone,

Let me run through what I did.

1. copy hda verb to usr/bin <--- without this file in bin I am not able to execute the install command
2. Copy codec commander to clover/kexts/other
3. This is how I did the install command (please correct me if I am wrong here)

Code: [Local Link Removed for Guests]

MacBook-Pro:~ vn7-592g$ /Users/vn7-592g/Desktop/Jack\ fix install
nid = 0x19, verb = 0x707, param = 0x25
command 0x01970725 --> result = 0x00000000
nid = 0x21, verb = 0x708, param = 0x83
command 0x02170883 --> result = 0x00000000
Done
4. Rebuild permission and cache.

However, it doesnt work with the jack_fix file from Elitemacx86 (my laptop uses ALC255).

If the above procedures are correct, then I may need to dig deeper by modifying Jack_fix file (or should I try other layout id?). And this is where I am stumped. I do have my codec dump from linux but I do not know how to proceed from here.

Edit: I am using AppleALC+Lilu

Your guidance is appreciated.

You do not need to have any file in /usr/bin, folder just copy the Jack_Fix folder to your Desktop and run intall.command, but anyway send me your codec_dump

This is what I get if I run Jack_fix without hda verb in /usr/bin

Code: [Local Link Removed for Guests]

MacBook-Pro:~ vn7-592g$ /Users/vn7-592g/Desktop/Jack\ fix install
/Users/vn7-592g/Desktop/Jack fix: line 2: hda-verb: command not found
/Users/vn7-592g/Desktop/Jack fix: line 3: hda-verb: command not found
Done
Attached is the codec dump.

You have to copy the Jack_Fix folder to your Desktop, then open it and run install.command.
you must be running the out of the folder.

onemanosx,
I'm sorry, there was an error in the script,
please download the Jack_Fix folder again and let me know if it works.

1. Run Script. Rebuild permissions and cache.
2. Checked input with default working Layout ID 27. Line in and internal mic not activated.
3. Reboot.
4. Line in and internal mic not activated.

files.zip
1. Replaced new AppleALC kext. Changed Layout ID 3
2. Run Script. Rebuild permissions and cache.
3. Checked input - Line in input missing in sound preference
- Internal mic not activated.
4. Reboot.
5. Checked input with similar results.

Maybe I should troubleshoot by testing all layout ID available for the codec? But, that will take some time and I hope that is not necessary ;)

* I can test one layout id a day :lol:

Edit: Changed Layout ID to 27 with your provided kext brings back line in input slider. Repeat installation steps. Still no luck.
