drone4zone, your answer is as useless as t-i-t-s on a bull!
You are what is wrong with all Hackintosh communities!
If you can't type a real answer then stfu!
nouatzi, I used the MyHack usb installer maker( default install ) and it booted on my G73JH then installed 10.9 on an external HD.
I was working on an other Hackingtosh of mine so I don't know what the outcome will be on the laptop.
You could start with MyHack.
I'll be installing 10.9 on the G73GH today. I'll keep you informed.
2014-01-14 @9:47PM - 10.9.0 is installed on my G73JH BUT - no WiFi, only 1400x1050 resolution, Keyboard works, No RJ45, Sound with voodoo but it's not perfect.

NOYFB...FYI..been there done myHack......done ##### as well ...tried various personalities with frame buffers "Nomasus" seemed to show 5800 series in sys profiler ,tried to use nullCpuPowerMangement kext and without, in order to get sleep working,without any success .I get black screen at times and have to do a hard shut down via power key hold...I will ignore your comment about "stfu" since people do make mistakes.Dont be a rude Hater,it will get you nowhere,I stand corrected for not posting this info,It's not perfect but here it is
As far as sharing my install process it's been a various choice using USB 8GB stick,along with free app store Mavericks "download app file" make sure it's placed in Applications folder for ##### to work ,use another mac, my hack works the easiest and smooth you have to add Aty netkas 64 bit kext to get Ati5870m working ,drag it into extra folder before boot...Mutibeast was another way to create usb stick boot with "GraphicsEnabler=no" and -v to see if you boot has any issues
I have not really used Clover ,but heard some people have been successful,with use Ati rom and graphics enabler no.
I read something about Asus remapped the pins in a backward way in their PCIe slot it's a MXM2.1b series I imagine,I have it working perfectly in ubuntu,and win 7,8 version platforms display sleeps and awakes and changes resolution ...
so far this is what I have working note that my G73JH series is the "BestBuy" version which kinda sucks without the 1920x1080 led panel,has 1600x900 and an intel centrino clear wifi which is not compatible with any version osX platform ,what I did was get a orig G73JH off ebay for $5 free shipping I lucked out and added AirPortAtheros40Kext and it recognized airport perfectly...I don't have bluetooth not with my version,have two Hard drives one with Mavericks and other windows 7,8,ubuntu Ultimate version.
audio has been interesting sofar voodoo 8.4 universal installer seemed to work but it's buggy with mic feedback you can fix it with plist edit
volume fix=true and mic=true. I have a kext that is patched with 269codec for this G73JH but haven't really tried it yet ,been focused on video issue mostly,but here is what I have
keyboard backlight working patched dsdt
audio voodoo version 8.4 buggy but ok mic works
Trackpad with 3 finger gestures work awesome with "Rehabman ps2 custom kext
Battery icon Hardware sensors GPU,Cpu thermal working rehab man Fakekext with built in plugins
turbo boost works you have to boot into bios to set it normal or turbo,maybe there is a kext for the hot key have not really checked.
here you can get kexts and additional tweaks to get you running without Graphics sleep. I just set my laptop to not sleep screen saver works fine ,just don't let your display fade to sleep otherwise you have to hard shut down again ,thats where I'm at so far ,maybe the Graphics is an easy fix I'm hoping .
here is link to kexts I used
I included patch dsdt file for backlight keys...also if it doesn't work for you, patch your own easy just run app MaciASL and apply,save your dsdt patch in document and copy past txt 07Backlight. with your own,drag into extras folder. you have to use ctrl,Alt,+,-, key to enable ,they will adjust 3 stages low med high + - while holding ctrl and Alt along with +,- keys also patch HDAkext should work ,not sure about IO80211Family kext I used the AirPortAthrose40 kext to work just enable in system preferences networks.If you need any info let me know .

Excellent and thank you for the information dron4zone!
Illl be working on this today.

Here is where i'm stuck I'm assuming this is a "Clarksfield" type based on various reviews on this Laptop...
In all OS X systems up to and including Sandy Bridge, native power management was enabled by ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext, a plugin in IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext. For Ivy Bridge processors, native power management is enabled with the X86PlatformPlugin.kext. HD3000 processors on a 7 Series motherboard should not use Ivy Bridge power management.
I'm thinking a DSDT from windows or Linux may be the way scratching my head here to get true value? which "ClarksField" needs to map "NONE(must use with Discrete graphics) ..to be continued I need a beer !
Posted 16 January 2014 - 02:29 AM
It is Clarksfield.
Sandy Bridge came after so I guess ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext in IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext is correct.
But I fail to figure out what you are trying to achieve. wake from sleep?
dron4zone, I think I will start a new thread for the Asus J73JH. I will be abel to update the main post with all the information we gather for 10.9.
I don't think nouatzi is active. I saw his post on tony#@$#@$. He said he got his up and running.
Posted 16 January 2014 - 06:21 AM
yes,seems it wakes but the screen is white and distorted...maybe ACPI_SMCPlatformPlugin.kext needs to be edited?
Sounds good ...I was about to go back to Snow Leopard LOL..I'm having issue now sounds tweaks choppy without nullCpuPowerMangement.kext..I have a few kexts from iAtkos ML2 I may try
