Here's the guide to install Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on the Acer Aspire 5738g (ATI Mobility HD 4570 Version)

What's work:
VGA: ATI Mobility HD 4570 - QE/CI Enabled but Photoshop's RGB Mode is green and OGL applications crash
Sound: ALC888 - Fully working
Ethernet: Gigabit Lan Ethernet - Fully working
Sleep Mode: Fully working
Camera: Native
Kernel cache

What doesn't work:
Wi-Fi: Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN - Replaced with native Broadcom BCM4311MCG
HWMonitor: It crashes when i try to install Menu Bar extensions
GraphicsMode in BootScreen

Here's the guide:

What you need:

Mountain Lion Bootable USB (Google is your friend)
All the kext and pkgs here:

1- Boot with the USB in first position in Boot Option of the BIOS
2- In the USBLoader type USBBusFix=Yes
3- Install Mountain Lion normally


1- Open MBeast and check the option like in the image:

Attached File  MultiBeast.tiff   186.38KB   372 downloads

2- Now Install Chameleon_2.1svn_r1820_10.8_Peregrine_NB_780.pkg
3- Reboot with GraphicsEnabler=No
4- Install the 10.8.2 update from the AppStore and Reboot
5- Install kexts in the folders ALC888,4570m,Ethernet,Battery,Sleep Enabler
6- Copy DSDT.aml in /Extra folder
7- In Kext Wizard Repair Permissions and Restore Cache
8- Copy org.chameleon.Boot.plist
9- Reboot

Tips: Set you SMBios.plist to a Mid-2010 MacBook Pro to avoid the graphic update that ruins the 4570m injection

Enjoy your new AcerBook Pro

All kexts except VGA kexts (modified by me) are taken from osx86.net

Please feel free to post suggestions and fix :guitar:
