In Topic: [Guide] Dell XPS 15 L502X (Early 2011) Snow Leopard Install (possibly L702x too)

@TW, i figured it had something to do with bootloader limitations. I'll give it a try later tonight and see if it works now on clover.

For some reason it doesn't work, those methods must be in the same .aml file. The stock files, if i recall well, have them defined as external, i might be messing the machines though... my xps with a friend's asus.

Salutations from your neighboring hole.

 

3. You are right, it became so much of a routine that i don't even question why i do that. Atm i'm using RehabMan's branch.

5. I think it's USB one, if memory serves, it's been a while since i last disassembled this laptop. I know someone posted realtek drivers a while back claiming they work for XPS15, so it may be the same/similar with your laptop's model.

6. Well, i'm using 10.8.3, for some reason it seems the most stable for me, on it i have no versioning problems with GenericXHCI. Can someone with 10.8.4 and above confirm USB3 is still working properly with the stock kext?

What city would that be? :)

 

2a. 2b. should be extractable from the kexts posted around here (i assume they are more recent than whatever is in my .pkg compilation) unless they are not compatible with MV

3. i'm oblivious, frankly, i've seen you mentioned it a couple of times... i had no problems with battery so i didn't bother modifying anything regarding that.

4. that's quite awesome!

5. 2 years later, i still didn't get my hands on a compatible SD card to test the reader, so i don't even know if the kexts work. My web cam is still kaput after installing that software months ago, hell if i know what's going on.

6. USB3 works great with the GenericXHCI.kext

Good guide, it's also good for the L502x/L702x laptops, it just needs the appropriate files... I really don't have time for that so maybe one of you L502x users might compile an archive with what's needed and give it to TW to add it. Only if he agrees with this, of course.
