IO80211Family modif 1.0.0

About This File

Modified IO80211Family.kext especially who use device based on Atheros40 (the idea came from CtlnaAHCIPort.kext) so we don't need to touch /S/L/E just inject via OpenCore, and we can running Big SUr without open Sealed (no need remove/delete vanilla IO80211Family.kext in /S/L/E)

 

I'm not try in Mojave or Catalina but I'm sure is worked too

 

1. just put 2 kext HS80211Family.kext & AirPortAtheros40.kext  .../OC/Kexts and make sure inject via config.plist

  do not inject IO80211NetBooter in the plist (must do research so i leave there in plugin),  I remove IO80211NetBooter from plugin so as not to confuse

see my pict below just add 2 value

2. you can add value manually VendorID in IONameMatch (atheros40) if your ID not present

 

3. refer to @MaLd0n guide in olarila for working Wifi Atheros AR9565, AR9462, AR9463, AR9485

here is the modification (no need injector)

AR9565 AirPortAtheros40-9565.kext.zip

AR9462 AirPortAtheros40-9462.kext.zip

AR9463 AirPortAtheros40-9463.kext.zip

AR9485 AirPortAtheros40-9485.kext.zip

 

Additional : Fake Locale & Country Code

 

Use this kext WifiLocFix.kext.zip to fix Locale & Country Code (Fake AirPort Location Interface)

You can change it inside WifiLocFix.ket depend on your location

and don't forget to inject in your config.plist
