Okay.. increasing from default 1400 to 1600 is a little bit better. But clicking with smooth mouse enabled is still jumpy. Mouse accelerator is more reliable but has no acceleration. :(

@68x: What are your settings?

Mine is at 1600, but I do not use Mouse Accelerator. Try setting it to the max (which is 2400), try reducing it from there.

Okay... tried some different settings. 2400 DPI is not very fast without these tools.

Reducing the DPI (800) and using SmoothMouse with Medium Speed and OS X acceleration seams to be quite good. Fast and not jumpy on clicks.

ML 10.8.2 is the easiest way.

I finally got HDMI working. No need for kext patching, the vanilla kext will do. I will upload the vanilla kext and my config.plist

Note: The mini-vga will not work!

Edit:
Here is the config.plist, http://pastebin.com/c7RD5UGP

Please note that I changed my SMBios to a MBA (just change MacBookAIr5,2 to MacBookPro9,2).

Hmmm... until now I still struggle to get steedstep work in UX32A. I always get
WARNING: IOPlatformPluginUtil : getCPUIDInfo: this is an unknown CPU model 0x3a
-- power management may be incomplete or unsupported
every time I boot. Does everybody else get the same message?

UX32VD & UX31A also Intel Core i7-3517U right? How you guy manage to get it working?

How long is your battery time? (I only get arround 3h. SpeedStepping seems to work!?)

EDIT: Same error message in console:

kernel[0]: WARNING: IOPlatformPluginUtil : getCPUIDInfo: this is an unknown CPU model 0x3a

EDITEDIT: Installed FakeSMC HWSensors Plugins (https://bitbucket.or...ensors/overview).
HWMonitor shows a "CPU Package Multiplier" at x18.0 and "CPU Package" frequency fixed at 1.8GHz.

It is being reported falsely. I get 3-4 hours of battery life (same as Windows). I also generated a custom SSDT to confirm any doubts, it seems as though even with Ivy Bridge MBP SMBios our CPU is not being detected.

I think it is more 3h on OS X and more 4-5h on Windows. There should be a reason...

EDIT: MSRDumper.kext shows only two reached states (8 and 18) switching between them:

12.03.13 18:30:11,000 kernel[0]: MSRDumper PStatesReached: 8 18
12.03.13 18:30:12,000 kernel[0]: MSRDumper CoreMulti(18)

@68x: So there is definitely s.th. wrong?! How did you patch the SSDT?
With this script?

I got this when I switched to MacbookPro8,1
kernel[0]: MSRDumper CoreMulti(8) 
kernel[0]: MSRDumper PStatesReached: 8 14 28
kernel[0]: MSRDumper CoreMulti(28)

But I do feel uncomfortable because it is not an ivy bridge smbios.

Yes, I generated the SSDt using that script. However, I only get 2 states working using MBA5,2 and MBP9,2. I'll try using MBP8,x

Ok I completely redid it, documenting. This is exactly how i proceeded: (mostly based on pippo's howto, UX32VD-R4002H)

Copy all attached files on your stick, so you can access them while in safe mode.
- Boot OS X 10.8.2 install, with -x flag.
- Disk utility - Partition your system disk (as many partitions as you wish) with the GUID Table (Mac Part. with Mac OSX Ext Journaled of course)
- Boot Mac OS X with -x flag
- Go to /System/Library/Extensions and delete ONLY Geforce.kext, install attached kexts (by nhart12 and Thomas 21111) with kext wizard, rebuild kext cache
- Install clover v2 r1000 - customize: UEFI boot (UEFI motherboards), Install & start 64bit boot first, Drivers32, Drivers 64, Drivers64UEFI
- Run Diskutil list (look for the identifier for your 209.7 MB EFI Partition on the Disk where OS X is installed, in my case disk0s1)
- sudo newfs_msdos -v Fat32 -F 32 /dev/disk0s1 (to repartition the EFI partition)
- Boot OS X in single user mode (-s)
- When files are loaded and you see :/ root# , type sudo nvram -x -p > /nvram.plist returns: -sh: /nvram.plist: Read-only file system
- Type reboot
- Boot OS X (no flags this time)
- Recheck correct EFI identifier: diskutil list (for me disk order changed after reformat)
- Mount your EFI partition: sudo mkdir -p /mnt
sudo mount_msdos /dev/disk1s1 /mnt (again, check for your own identifier!)
- FAT32 should be mounted in finder now. copy the EFI Folder from your system disk (or the disk you chose at clover install) to FAT32 (drag on the finder mount or via terminal, backup replaced files if neccesary)
- Go to the EFI Folder on your FAT32 Mount. Replace Folders ACPI/mini, ACPI/patched, drivers64UEFI and OEM with the folders from my EFI. Replace also config.plist from my EFI.
- When finished, unmount FAT32 (Your EFI Partition) with sudo umount /mnt
- Delete EFI folder from your system partition (or where clover was installed to) to be sure to boot the right partition with EFI folder
- Reboot, go to BIOS, Add New Boot Option:
Name: CLOVER (or whatever)
Filesystem: Choose the EFI Partition of your system Disk (if you're not sure which filesystem to pick, create multiple Boot Options with same parameters but try different filesystems)
Path: \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi , Save, Reboot
- Hit Esc at Asus logo, choose Bootoption to boot. (in my case first filesystem in list was the right one)
- in Clover, hit "Boot Mac OS X from …"
Audio, Fn Keys, Standby, Lan Adapter, Battery Meter work, didn't test video out yet.

Files: UX32VD_1.zip, UX32VD_2.zip


I can't guarantee that it works for the UX32A too, give it a try!


The Error occurs, amongst other things, when you delete the requiered AppleACPIPlatform.kext. Always keep a backup of deleted kexts




Anyone luck with Multitouch yet?? (with Elan v4 beta drivers)


I used this instruction to install clover, and it works good!
but i only can't sign into icloud, facetime, imessage. everything i have to give up my apple ID.
i get a error like the server has encountered an error.

how can i fix it?
is it my serial number? i used the files from phelics12.

thanks

Buy a compatible wireless card off of eBay. Only way to fix the error.

Yes. It shouldn't matter how you get access to the internet, but long as you have a hackintosh with a valid ethernet card or wireless card you're set.

To anyone upgrading to 10.8.3, MAKE SURE TO REMOVE ALL NVIDIA KEXTS BEFORE YOU RESTART.
You *may* have to reinstall your hackintosh if you fail to do so.

Why is this necessary ? Did you have to remove them initially when you installed 10.8.2 ? Can you list those kexts ?

Thanks,

Adi

I finally got HDMI working. No need for kext patching, the vanilla kext will do. I will upload the vanilla kext and my config.plist

Note: The mini-vga will not work!

Edit:
Here is the config.plist, http://pastebin.com/c7RD5UGP

Please note that I changed my SMBios to a MBA (just change MacBookAIr5,2 to MacBookPro9,2).


I'm using this config.plist and so far my system (UX32VD, 10.8.3) boots properly. Actually, this seems to fix an issue I had where sometimes my graphics card would not function but the system would boot and even log-in/poweroff (ofc, I was blind!).

But now I have some questions:
1) Everytime I go to About This Mac and select Show More Info my screen goes black. Does this happen to you guys too? The same happens if I install iStat Menus :-/

2) Is HDMI supposed to be fully working with this config.plist? I mean, can we connect HDMI cable and disconnect and keep using the system in a smooth way? Or do we have to reboot to have HDMI?
