Ah I see.. Perhaps that's my issue.. I was under the impression that it was to be natively supported by OS X with the proper DSDT patch.

Thanks for the info.

Adi


Take a look at this chart, http://i.imgur.com/AP72oDE.jpg, I do not take credit for it. Most of the half-mini Atheros card usually work either natively or via kext edits.

To anyone who wants Ivy Bridge power management, you will need to do this:

1. Replace your AppleACPIPlatform kext with mine (it is the default one from 10.8)
2. Replace your DSDT with mine
3. Replace your battery kext with this, https://code.google..../downloads/list
4. You will also need to install the latest AsusNBWMI kext from http://forum.osxlati...asus-notebooks/ (DSDT edits are already done)

I have attached my AppleACPI and DSDT. Most of the FN keys work (F2, F7, F9 will not work). For extended battery life, I recommend using http://forum.osxlati...-battery-power/

Edit:

If anyone is interested in a new kext pack, I have attached it (attached are kexts which I used and software that will help install and monitor your system).

Hi 68x,

Did you make a recent change to your DSDT since the last time you uploaded it in a previous post in this thread ? Cause i assumed you didn't and i have skipped point 2 and I got a nice KP on boot..

After I reverted back my AppleACPI.kext, the KP went away..

Adi

EDIT : Scratch that. I replaced my DSDT with yours and I reapplied the AppleACPI.kext and I still get a KP.

Try the AppleACPI kext from the USB installer. I will be releasing another DSDT with proper FN key support soon. Also there were some battery issues that I faced, but that issue is also fixed.

On another note, I have made some progress on making the ambient light sensor work.

 Which SMBIOS model do you use?

Well here's an update to my DSDT:

 

- Battery Fixes (battery charge doesn't get stuck at 89%)

- Ambient Light Sensor (partially works -> Keyboard light should change; Thanks to EmlyDinesh)

 

Note: The Ambient Light Sensor CANNOT be turned off by using Fn+A. It is turned on by default. If you want to enable/disable it, open the DSDT and look up the PINI method and change ALSC(One) to ALSC(Zero).

Been lurking around in this thread for quite a while now and I just want to personally thank you, the rest of the people in this thread working on it and EmlyDinesh for all your amazing work on this machine. You've really been a great help to make this laptop even better than it already was, and providing a lot of information and fixes to both making it stable and EmlyDinesh for making the trackpad amazing to use, and I hope you'll still be here helping out and providing great fixes when Mavericks comes out. I'll be sure to test out the ambient light sensor and see how it works. Great job, you deserve every bit of kudos I can possibly give.

So I am new to this whole process. I have booted my ux31a with mountain lion and I have installed the chimera bootloader, which gives me the correct resolution and fixes my boot time. So I have installed the kexts in the first post and I have just about everything working it seems, exccept audio and my touch pad. Are there any fixes for the touch pad? Any of the kexts that I try make it lifeless (I can use it as a mouse but all that I get is moving, left and right click. No multitouch.)

 

Also could someone make a list from this thread for all of the most up to date kexts and dsdts that you guys are having success with? Trying to piece together 24 pages of it all while getting kernel panic every time is taking its toll on me. Thanks!

The new ELAN touchpad driver in version 2.7.5 is amazingly good. http://forum.osxlati...river-mac-os-x/

 

Acceleration and inertial scrolling has been improved. And no need for smoothmouse anymore.

 

I just changed the setting AccelerationPrefValue in Info.plist from default AccelerationPrefValue = 0

to the value 1 or 4. This makes the trackpad fast and responsive.

What is your CPU ? Is it by any chance the Core i7 one ? If yes, do you mind posting your SSDT files as well because for some reason, SLEEP on my UX31A only works sometimes.. Other times, it just locks up the laptop and I have to reboot it..

 

Thanks,

 

Adi

So I now have audio and the touchpad working. I believe the last thing on my list is to get sleep working. If you have the SSDT for the ux31a with an i7 that will get sleep working I would be so thankful if you posted it.

I second the request. I think the reason why sleep isn't working for me is that i have bad SSDT tables for my i7. I would also appreciate if anyone can post their SSDT tables in order to get sleep working.

I just bought ASUS ZENBOOK PRIME UX32VD-R4010P with i7 3517U, 2x256 GB SSD, nvidia 620m, etc.

 

Downloaded iATKOS ML3U OSX.

 

And I am trying to install it to first 256 GB SSD.

 

I do not know what exactly to select in Customize options in iATKOS installer, which kexts, etc. to select to be able to boot the installed OSX.

 

Everytime I try to boot installed OSX, it gets stuck on something.

 

Could you give me step by step guide how to install OSX on my new zenbook, please?

 

I just updated BIOS firmware to latest 203 version.

It looks like it is UX32VDA, since no other firmware (UX32VD) is accepted. (I can not install 212 UX32VD firmware, since it requests UX32VDA type.)

And latest UX32VDA version is 203.

See here: https://www.asus.com...ort_Download_36

(Version 202 was there from factory.)

I can get here. But then it waits and does nothing. Any advice?
With -x -v boot parameters I can get here (third image). It waits there and does nothing.

Fourth screenshot is lspci -nn command.

You need to change a setting in your bios. I don't remember exactly what its called but it checks the usb before you boot to it.

Could you tell me what to change for USB? My SATA in bios is set to AHCI.
