have you tried this for the ethernet?
Also, I will try later to see if the bios has a whitelist or not for installing a different wlan card. I am on windows still on the 15-incher model of the 2013 envys but it should be able to tell if you are able to simply swap out the cards without modifying the bios
Also, have you tried the latest DP for mavericks? ive read that it has better support for haswell onboard graphics such as the hd4600
This guy somehow got the HD4600 working QE/CI as an iris pro under mavericks, I would read his blog
Try that above for the audio, the IDT audio in my 15-j053cl is IDT 92HD91BXX, and that is supposedly been tested in ML for it
HI there! Appreciate the reply. As you may have noticed, I haven't had one that wasn't from myself in quite some time now.
Now then, yes, I have tried that for ethernet. Sadly, it doesn't seem to support my hardware. UPDATE: Um, ok. So, I can't explain why but my ethernet is now working. For some strange reason, the version of RealtekRTL8111 that I got elsewhere (not the official site) actually works for my hardware whereas the official one didn't. Again, I don't know why it's suddenly working but i'm not gonna complain either. That's just one step closer. w00t!
I haven't updated the thread in a few days just because I wanted to be more certain of my recent test findings. Anyway, I have already done a wireless card swap and the one i'm using works very well in both OS X and Windows. The reason I decided to swap it is because I knew it would work under OS X. It's a Dell 1397 [BCM4312] and although it requires a kext downgrade, it works. So, for now i'll probably just stick with it. Sadly, I don't plan to keep using it for longer than I need to. It belongs in another system and because of the kext downgrade, it's not a future proof solution. I have every intention of purchasing a better replacement wireless card soon but I am waiting until I can get at least, my CPU and 1 GPU supported first. If I can't get those working, there really is no point in getting any extras for the system. OS X is almost useless without the support for the CPU and GPU. Still, i'd be interested to know if my BIOS has a whitelist for wireless. I really hope it doesn't, considering my BIOS is confirmed for being heavily encrypted and therefore, unmodifiable atm.
I would love to test the newest DP of Mavericks. Sadly, as I have stated earlier in the thread, I haven't even been able to get the Mavericks installer booting.
I suppose I could try another test soon but if the kernel isn't updated, I doubt i'll get anywhere. Chameleon's kernelpatcher doesn't seem to work on it and so I always get a reboot. Using an AMD kernel for ML doesn't work with it. I could try the 10.8.4 kernel but I doubt i'll get anywhere with it. Still, when I get a chance, i'll give it a shot and keep the thread posted of results. UPDATE [08/11/13]: Tried out DP4 of Mavericks and it's still a no go. Even with the bare minimum I typically need to get ML up and running, Mavericks still falls short and either reboots after kext/kernel load or KPs on ACPIPlatform. Downgrading that kext does nothing to remedy the issue. *sigh* Also, I have read through most of that guy's blog. Great stuff but I am not very experienced with DSDT still and I have never been able to get my SSDTs working. I have spent a LOT of time on both already too. I really need to figure out my SSDT issues, then I can start seriously testing getting my GPU working. My previous post goes more in depth with the issue i've been trying to resolve with that.
Interesting on that last link. Haven't come across that one yet. I also have an IDT 92HD91BXX.
I already tried and sort of succeeded with VoodooHDA, but that is was my last resort option and it really doesn't work very well with my audio (stuttering) and i'd like to get AppleHDA working if I can. I will give your link a shot though. It can't hurt. UPDATE: That kext actually worked! My ports and everything are all detected (minus HDMI), my mic seems to work fine. Sadly, although it is smart enough to detect between internal speakers and headphones when plugged in, neither of them output any sound. So technically, i'm still without audio.
Still, HUGE step in the right direction, something I didn't have before. Thank you so much!
Thanks again and i'll keep you posted with any updates
