I think the function keys are related to the same kext that drives the touchpad if I remember correctly. I'll see if I can find it.

By the way, I would avoid Yosemite for the time being if you were still thinking about it. Once it's released though you should have the same compatibility as Mavericks.

FN keys for sound works, just saying.

It's a different version, mine is 7520. Honestly, I'm afraid things might break.

If you want to experiment with DSDTs and it doesn't work you can have your boot loader ignore the DSDT when you reboot.

 

I don't use Clover, but with Chameleon the boot flag is DSDT=null. It should be easy enough to find what the correct syntax is for Clover.

I use Chameleon too. I'll try and let you know how it went.

In that case you can just name the dsdt something like test.aml, then add DSDT=test.aml to your boot flags.

 

If you do nothing, it doesn't load. Chameleon will only autoload dsdt.aml.

The files in the package were DSDT.aml and ssdt.aml (plus a few other ssdt files), exactly as my own files are names. I used those and it went as I expected, it broke, Mac wouldn't boot anymore, so I had to restore the old ones.

I didn't reach anything regarding the touchpad or Yosemite. Did anyone find anything useful?

Yea, I'm already running 10.9.3 and it's quite smooth.

But of course, remember that it is a DP build so it will be more prone to instability. So if 100% reliability is a priority I would wait until Yosemite is released. Otherwise go for it.
