I've got 10.9.4 running.. most worked, but not sound. Now I've got sound working, but MacOs says no Wifi hardware. Maybe with another DSDT.amt it will work.

 

Installed using the the DSDT from 1st post.

 

Edit: Forgot to tell this is my first 'hacked mac', but I like it a lot!!

Which asus do you have?

Hi everyone,

I've got two problem with my ASUS N53SN-SZ126V on 10.9.4 .

For the wifi, I tried the solution proposed by eng_matt but it didn't work.

And my track pad doesn't work very well. For example i cannot move a window or select text. 

What should I do ?

Thx

Hi Anerik70,

 

The N53SV-SZ016V..

 

But I've got WiFi working now! Sound works, sleep works, trackpad works.. Only my camera doesn't.. But thats a no problem as I'm not using it. But now I've got this far.. so maybe I'll try something to get it working.

 

Using a DSDT from the forum and the drivers (devicemergenub and another one) found here in the forum and the original IO80211....kext got me going I guess. Not too sure as I tried a lot of kexts.

 

EDIT: Spoke too soon. It's not working anymore after a reboot... Any ideas? And its working now! Restarted a couple of times and it works now. Removed all kexts and inserted the right ones!

Hi there,

I also have a N53SV running OSX 10.8.5 and will greatly appreciate a guide to do a clean install of Yosemite since i am running Chameleon.

Can anyone post a guide ? or even start a new thread for the benefit of all of us ?

 

-Thanks.

Hi everybody,

 

First of all thanks for all the discussions and files provided; they helped a lot.  :thumbsup_anim:

 

Second; to summarize I have successfully installed Yosemite on N53SN model ( i7 - 4 GB Ram - 120 Gb SSD - Nvidia 550m ) yesterday with #####/##### and boot loader is chimera 4.0.1.

 

Things that work are : Touchpad , Keyboard , Function Keys , Graphics , Audio , DVD , Reboot/Sleep

 

Wifi gave me a hard time after installation. I tried many kexts and troubleshooting tutorials but in the end it worked after re-installing Yosemite without formatting. I am not sure if it was related to disk permissions ( I tried before re-installing on Disk Utility to fix ) or something else but now wifi is working flawless. I am not sure about ethernet and didn't test since I don't have cables at home. But looks ok in the system info.

 

Bluetooth is also problematic ; seems to be always on and can't turn it off. Can't detect any other device during scan. And in system report no devices are shown. Any help is appreciated. 

 

Camera is the biggest problem.  <_< It works , but restarts itself every 2 second. So when I open up Skype or FaceTime it is constantly rebooting and the image comes and goes. If any of you had this problem and can provide a solution it would be great. Since I can see myself on the screen, it looks software related problem %99. This is from the system info : 

 

USB Video Device:

 

  Model ID: UVC Camera VendorID_5967 ProductID_5912

  Unique ID: 0x1a120000174f1718

 
And this is from the usb tab : 
 
USB Video Device:

 

  Product ID: 0x1718

  Vendor ID: 0x174f

  Version: 1.04

  Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec

  Manufacturer: Sunplus iT Co

  Location ID: 0x1a120000 / 4

  Current Available (mA): 500

  Current Required (mA): 500

 
USB 3.0 looks installed but can't detect my Seagate extension drive with usb 3.0 cable somehow. Here are details :
 
USB 3.0 Hi-Speed Bus:

 

  Host Controller Location: Built-in USB

  Host Controller Driver: GenericUSBXHCI

  PCI Device ID: 0x1000 

  PCI Revision ID: 0x0004 

  PCI Vendor ID: 0x1b73 

  Bus Number: 0x0f 

 
So if anyone has updated to Yosemite and has working stuff listed above it would be great to have some help. One other thing is I can't follow which kext is installed and properly working for a certain device. On some screenshots you shared I saw a list of kexts with ticks on left of them. Can't see something like that. After installing kexts I can't be sure if they are properly installed ( with permissions etc.) I hope I don't need to re-install Yosemite every time to fix this problem with kexts - I am using Kext Utility v2.6.1 BTW.
 
And one other question to N53S hackintosh users ; is your fan always working ? Mine is always on ( I don't have an option in BIOS for this ) , even if no process is going on the computer ( idle state ). Not disturbing soundwise but kinda worried.

Hi ! so you basically recommend switching to clover ? No other solutions ? Which kext are you using for camera drivers?
