The thing I noticed differently from your BIOS is your core version. Mine is 1203. Now, I'm not 100% sure but that could be it. I have read somewhere that it has to be 12**. I mean, someone correctly if I'm wrong, please, but when did you get the HAB? I'm also not 100% sure but it MIGHT be possible to downgrade your BIOS but very risky. I'm sure there is a way to install it, just have to take a different approach. :/

Got it from BB this past weekend. Busy this week, but will keep working this weekend to see if it will work.

Alright dude. I'll look around and see if theres a way around it.

To get the mic working, you have to select option 2 in Voodoo HDA, then change the recording level, mid way was enough for me. Now that's sorted and the new wireless card is installed, I'm a very happy man!
I just hope the patched kernels keep coming with the updates, it's nice having this in sync with my mac using MobileMe.
Does anyone know a way of syncing other files between macs for free? I'd like to have my music on here but can't be doing with having to mess about on itunes twice, so unnecessary!
EDIT(again) - Found it, there's a free app called sync folders

Damn that's sweet! I used Dropbox to sync with all my computers, even iPhone. But your limited to to so many gigs otherwise you would have to pay.
The thing with the mic is that, it doesn't want to save my config. :/ I reinstalled but I guess it's not a big deal. Everything is running sweet. Really considering a bigger hard drive. Check out Seagate Momentus XT.... Fastest hard drive that's not an SSD. 120 bucks on newegg for 500 gig.
Newegg.com - Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s with NCQ Solid State Hybrid Drive -Bare Drive
The reviews are iffy though :/ Might just stick with a WD, or Samsung or Hitachi.
EDIT: After reviewing Tomshardware, Looks like the WD Scorpio Black is the one to get.
Heres the 2009 2.5 hard drive chart:
One more thing lol
Change your Bootloader!! love it.

new to the seen also...just loaded snow leopard ..all went well till combo update 6.4 after reboot stuck on apple screen
bios is at 14.01
ecfirmware version EPCD-034
will look into downgrading the firmware unless some one has any other ideals
12-21-2010, 08:56 PM #27
did you backup the Mach_Kernel_Atom? I have done about 6 of these netbooks now and I have not had a sinlge issue. Well one issue I had was when I did the 10.6.5 update and I used the mach_kernel from the 10.6.4 combo update. When I did that it booted to the desktop but the USB Ports did not work.
All I can say is try to do a fresh install, I had reinstall mine 3 times when I first tried until I got it right. The guide that I was using was pretty old and out of date. Thats why I wrote this guide. I can only vouch that it will get everything running on an ASUS 1005HAB. I have not checked what BIOS I have, so when I shut my computer down again I'll look and let you know
12-22-2010, 09:28 AM #28
******installed everything to the guide...made boot usb installed everything upto 6.4combo update, ran through that minimized window after completion enter terminal
1. sudo -s
2. ENTER YOUR PASSWORD
3. cd /
4. mv mach_kernel mach_kernel_1062
5. cp ~/Desktop/mach_kernel_atom /
6. mv /mach_kernel_atom mach_kernel
7. chown 0:0 mach_kernel
ive noticed at some of the reponces of the command that no directory was found at some command levels
is there a way to jump start the OS back into to 6.0
i read somewhere we had to turn sleepmode off but i couldnt locate that switch.
******well tried to downgrade bios to 1203
saw a post saying to use afudos with /pbnc /n switches
it ran then gave success....post also said to turn of and remove battery...
when restart bios indicates 1401 bios so it didn't take
going to reload from scratch from USB to the hard drive.
ill take notes after combo pack 6.4 install
ill post the messages from terminal mode.
hope 3rd time is the charm
******ok just reloaded OS for the third time.
I went through all the updates and now at 10.6.5
only issues left are now
i dont see the airport for my wifi.
and i have to learn to modify the dsdt file for the battery unless i run out and buy a 2 gig of ram.
Guess I'll try to reload the wifi kext and see where that brings me.

What were the steps you took to downgrade your BIOS? I know a few people looking for the steps. It would be helpful.
Remember to back up those 3 kexts before upgradeing. I made that mistake cause I was to "cocky" and didn't think I needed to refer back to this when I was doing my friends hack book.
Just ordered the Apple bluetooth wireless keyboard with the Razer Orchi I feel very macish.
12-22-2010, 11:28 AM #30
Well I created a USB dos boot
Added afudos in the root also the 1005ha1203.rom bin file
Boot to dos via USB
Afudos /i1005ha1203.rom /pbnc /n
Then turn off pc and pull battery
My bios still says I'm at 1401 but bios said it flashed

Nice! Thanks added. I think the previous guy had a problem with that. Thankfully, I bought this refurbed from Newegg for 200 bucks and a 2 gig G Skill 800MHz stick for 40 bucks. Than I bought the Dell 1510 just so I can deal with WPA2 encryption. Next, new hard drive!
12-22-2010, 02:25 PM #32
Thats something i wanted to ask...the original wifi card on this is it capable of wap? it seams that i cant connect to my wifi with wap encryption ...i set up a small open wifi as a test unit and its running open .
also do i modifi the battery dstd file?
12-22-2010, 05:11 PM #33
The default card can connect to WPA. I had my connection set to WPA2 but would see it but not connect. When I changed it to WPA and rebooted, it connected. I didn't test on WEP but I'm sure it would work. I read somewhere that the only way to get it to work on WPA2 is the Dell 1510 or running a USB adapter. I have the Alfa 2 watt adapter and it worked for my old hackintosh.
My settings on my router are: WPA TKIP. I think, but can't remember, AES was an issue. I just figured I'd grab the Dell 1510 just incase future updates disabled my default card.
About dsdt editing. I never done it. But you could Google DSDT Patcher and it lets you "build" your dsdt. But the one supplied here works awesomely.
12-22-2010, 05:51 PM #34
guess ill need to upgrade the Ram.....I'll run out to staples and see if they have on hand....if not ill order,,,,46$ plus tax delivery included.Amazon.ca
ill pay more going there but ill have it sooner....
12-22-2010, 07:53 PM #35
Yea, I use Amazon Prime to my advantage. But than again would like something local incase it fails.
I prefer G-Skill personally.
Well hope you find a good deal!
I wish everyone had a great Christmas!! Also have a great New Years!!
Waiting for Apple's Mac App Store, Coming January 6th!

Question any of you happen to get the bluetooth working thought i saw somewhere that the bluetooth was working on the 1005ha

Let me know if anyone buys a Bluetooth Adapter from a 1005HA and puts it in their 100HAB. I've thought about doing also.
Or has anyone found a website with a guide? I took mine apart the other day and it looks like there is a connector for it.
