right click, show package contents.
then
drag drop file on desktop (info.plist) edit there. save. drag n drop back to kext.
repair permissions.

or edit the kext on desktop. then install with kext wizard

Cheers pal! Some more dummy questions:

right click, show package contents.

Which file? From update 3 in first post?

drag drop file on desktop (info.plist) edit there. save.

What exactly I have to edit? Just a small example, and I'll get it.

then install with kext wizard

Can I use Kext Utility as well?

Lion's patched kext for 1693

works fine, sleep works but adapter doesnt work after sleep.

if you wanna use it with other card, change every 93 16 bytes to your devid.

Hate to revive an old topic, I would have sent a pm, but it said it was not possible...


Hi, I noticed you'd patched AppleBCM5701 for Lion, to work with 16 93. Can this be made to work with 16 b1? I tried swapping out 93 16 for b1 16 but to no avail, It shows up in the network prefpane and seems to get assigned an ip, but won't connect.

I've tried editing the original 10.7 kext *ionetworking>applebcm5701* from scratch but all attempts result in some weird link error during boot...

I realize you're a very busy individual but if you ever have the time to check this out it'd be much appreciated, or even just steering me in the right direction would be much appreciated too; I hate to ask for 'freebies' esp since you're not getting paid for your work.

Kind regards,
ks

Hi Netkas,

Would it be possible for you to provide the same Kext for Mountain Lion. Or atleast let me know what all values have you bin-patched..

Thanks in advance..
