Any updates on the n56jr dsdt?
Anybody successfully installed osx86 on it?
I no longer have the N56JR in my possession but I did manage to get Mavericks fully installed and working (as mentioned in my previous post).
A few of my installation notes for the N56JR:
-Disable VT-d (I also disabled Intel AES-NI and Virtualization Technology)
-SATA = AHCI
-Disabled Anti-Theft (may not be required)
-Launch CSM Enabled (This changed UEFI mode to Legacy Bios Mode)
-Secure Boot Mode Disabled
In order to get the installer to boot (which I created using UN1Beast and Mavericks), You need to have a patched kernel (to avoid kernel panics with the haswell chip -- or at least I did back when I installed Mavericks on this sucker)
Patch for kernel: http://www.insanelym...l-motherboards/
(Patched 10.9.3 Kernel included in zip as well)
Note that you may need to boot the install USB with –x –f –v GraphicsEnabler=No (again, I created the USB installer using ##### w/Laptop Support and Mavericks 10.9.3 at the time)
Attached are my final system kexts and DSDT file (which includes error fixes and patches to support Rehabman's Battery Manager and Asus Keyboard Backlight, with required kexts included in the attached zip).
This should get the system almost fully functional with:
-DSDT (w/o power management but sleep should be functional)
-Sound (via VoodooHDA.kext and AppleHDADisabler.kext)
-Keyboard Backlight and Asus FN keys (via DSDT patch and AsusNBFnKeys.kext)
-LAN (with issues) via RealtekRTL8111.kext
-> I was experiencing poor performance with the LAN card and the included kext at the time when installing Mavericks; There may be a better kext out that supports the onboard LAN better than what I've included here. Disabled EEE in the RealtekRTL8111.kext info.plist due to connection drop outs and it sort of helped but the issue returned.
See here for a possible newer version: http://www.insanelym...ealtek-rtl8111/
I will also mention that I replaced the internal Half Size Wireless MINI PCI-E Card with a "ATHEROS AR9280 DUAL Band AR5BHB92-H" and bluetooth micro usb off eBay for $10 $0.99 and it was well worth it!
Again, I no longer have this unit but hopefully what I've included will help others get OSX running on their N56JR systems. I can try and provide support but for the most part you are on your own, and good luck!

Also note that because of the Nvidia Optimus Card, you should delete all GeForce*.kext AND NVDA*.kext from /S/L/E after installation to avoid any potential issues with the OS trying to load the NVIDIA card instead of the Intel.
