Same problem as myself Jordan Li... Did you switch the native wifi card?

Thanks glnacy:thumbsup_anim:


My install was a bit simpler since I've used the myhack util. I'll leave my 'guide' asap.

i believe glnacy would be


Whenever someone has time, can you write a quick install note and create an archive with all the kext needed? (and if DSDT/SSDT are the same use the ones from the first post)


Would be very nice to edit the first post and stick the 10.9 install details in that too.




I believe glnacy would be the perfect person to post that guide, since my setup is a bit more uncommon (i3 processor & different wifi card). But I can always leave my installation steps anyway.... Yes, I use the same DSDT as ever (the one you posted).

Success!!!  :D


Thanks a lot glnacy for your kext pack that worked pretty much everything important OOB!  :thumbsup_anim:


Almost everything is working just fine and maybe it's time to make a installation guide on official 10.9. 


Only problems I've noticed are related to my wifi card that is different (AR90285) that I've switched in order to get the BT to work, but it has issues on 10.9 like it's recognized and works with "your" kext, but then I cannot connect to any protected wifi networks (gives a prompt connection failed error) but oddly enough works on unprotected wifi networks - go figure! So a switch back to the original wifi card or maybe a 100% native recognized airport one is in the works now.


Sleep also doesn't work for me, the screen goes black but never gets into real sleep, then wakes up on pressing a key just to shortly after get the screen corrupt and freeze. Are you using sleepenabler.kext? If so what version? Could you also please share you extra folder? Maybe there's the 'secret'...



Thanks again for everything to all the great guys here.  B)

** UPDATE **


I've been trying like mad to install the new official final release of Mavericks 10.9 on my R830, but without success... :(


The setup and first boot run just fine, it's when you start messing with the kexts that it goes wrong, namely:


- The patched AppleHDA.kext doesn't seem to work on 10.9 - no audio detected...

- When I install the wifi kext enabler (IO80211Family.kext) then I get stuck on normal boot with a very strange error (see image attached). Booting in safe-mode still works fine though...


Any ideas guys? macandrea & glnacy
