Great work JKBuha!
Some info about the Nvidia card. Using the modded bios with PEG settings and the _PS0 DSDT (which always resulted in some type of boot loop) i can get to the desktop but it freezes there, can't dump anything to see if and what has changed in the system registry. Will experiment more when i get home.
P.S this bios throttles the fan to maximum. My temp is around 35ºC at this speed....
There is also an option inside PEG settings that says PEG always on or something of the sort. I'm pretty sure that also needs to be enabled in PEG mode. From what I understand, without that enabled, the discrete still follows optimus behavior and automatically disables itself when not in use. Might be why you crash at desktop.

Hey Jbuha is there any option to enable Discrete Graphic card on L702x ( As the post from adeebm suggests) ? Anyways i will be heading towards ur thread.
How do u know that l702 has integrated/discrete option ? where do u get that info from ? can u confirm it ? Is there any L702 bios modding thread ? If so can u just forward me ur sources.
Secondly regarding l502 have u tested OS X on new cracked bios ? Can u use Nvidia card on OS X ? Will be eagerly waiting for ur reply.
If we can get Nvidia active on OS X then that would be real breakthrough even without optimus support.
I think the l702x option was only for the 3d screen models. I haven't tested the new bios on OSX yet, only windows. I use my OSX partition for work, so I'm trying not to brick it
Will start a new partition and experiment soon..
