I just followed the 1201N-walkthrough from this forum. Search and you will find.


Do you have a link for this kext? I would love to test it out.


Now the next problem is to find a way to make the graphics work 100%.



http://www.kexts.com...ros_ar9285.html <--- kext for ar9285(do not use with broadcom chip)

If you don't mind me asking what kext if any are you using for the graphics? If i understand correctly the 1201n ion differs from our 1215n since ours is bundled with an intel igp as well.

I've found some kext said to be partially working with the igp card however its said to be really slow and the mouse icon shows up as a garbled up sqaure.

Hey,
I just got my Asus 1215n,
After reading this post I tried to do some research to try and find a way to get that WIFI card to work. As for what Windows Device manager says, its called Boardcom 4727 and its compatable to BCM43XX. So I had alook in the thread for them, but didnt find a single piece of information.

I might we wrong in what I'm searching, but if someone can confirm the exact name of this card that would be very useful.

I'll try my best to find or (if possible) develop a ktext for this card.

In the mean time if anyone and any other information it would be very useful currently.

The broadcom card does not have a compatible kext as far as i know.
The artheros card has recently been added to the list of compatible cards
by an extracted kext from a beta update. Sorry to hear that you got a broadcom.
I am waiting for my snow leopard disc to come in the mail!!!
What kext did u use for the graphics?

Hi people,

I'm just trying to boot the installation process, but following the 1201N guide it hangs displaying "Unsupported CPU".

Any chance to make it work?

I have now installed OSX on my 1215N, using the 1201N description. Most thing seems to be working just fine, with three "small" exeptions:

The two most worrying problems is that neither the ethernet-, nore the wifi-card is working. I have tried to get them to work in a lot of ways, without any luck. I am not going to open my pc to change the wificard to make it work.

The last problem is that the graphics is not working that good. I expect that the accelerated nVidia-part is not functioning.

I hope that someone can find a sollution for these problems soon.


AR8152 Ethernet is work

I have an Asus EEE 1215N myselves, and have tried to install OSX on it without luck.

I got to install Snow Leopard, but it would not boot up after the install.

I would love to solve this problem too!

Actually I guess you're not loading your custom kernel neither the DSDT.aml in this way.
You have to modify
<string>mach_kernel</string>
in
<string>mach_kernel_atom</string>

and add:
<key>DSDT</key>
<string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string>

1)Did this make nvidia work.
2) Has anyone made ​​touchpad working on this device? I used voodooPS2.kext, but it works just moving the cursor.
