  1. Hello everyone, this is a guide for Lenovo G580 laptops, this should also work if you have the same components. Download this ZIP file which contains all the kexts, programs, and DSDT that you will need. http://www.mediafire.com/?09mvusw0y5w23du Introduction This Lenovo G580 comes with the following components. Intel i3 3110M Intel HD Graphics 4000 Atheros AR8162 Ethernet Broadcom BCM4313 Realtek ALC269 Audio Codec. 2 USB 3.0 on left side. 1 USB 2.0 on right side What Works USB 3.0 works OOB but only with USB 3.0 devices. Internal Web Cam works OOB Card Reader works OOB Audio works with the AppleHDA that I patched. Graphics with Full Resolution and QE/CI after device properties injection. Screen Saver OOB What Doesn't Work Broadcom BCM4313 Wifi does not work, you will either have to buy an Atheros AR5B95 (which is listed on the Whitelist and works with OSX) or a WiFi USB Adapter, I'm using a D-Link DWA-131 (Costs $29.99) Installation I will not explain how to create a bootable USB stick here, there are 1000s of tutorials which will teach you that. I personally tried to use MYHACK, but didn't work, so I ended up using the ##### method with the patched files to install it on an MBR Partition. First Boot-Up When you first boot up (when you create your account) It is VERY important that you follow these instructions, or else you will have to end up reinstalling the OS again. Make sure you have the file you downloaded from the top of this post in a separate USB Stick, because you won't have internet access just yet. Open the folder, under programs, open up #####. Under Drivers -> Miscellaneous Select FAKESMC, NullCPUPowerManagment, and the PS2 Controller (If you don't your keyboard and trackpad WON'T WORK) Make sure you also install Chimera under Bootloader (Make sure you use chimera, I've tried other bootloaders and they ended up breaking my system) Don't Restart Just Yet. Go to your S/L/E folder and delete AppleHDA, and AppleACPIPlatform. Now go back to the folder you downloaded from here and copy every kext in the Battery, Audio, and ALXEthernet folder to your desktop. Under the Programs folder, run #####. Now in the same folder again, copy everything in the Extra Folder to YOUR Extra Folder. Now Reboot, Audio Should work, your battery metter should work, ethernet will work, and you will have Full Resolution with QE/CI The End Result http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKpdQFU1h74
  2. ALC269 on Lenovo G580

    EDIT: I followed a tutorial where I had to do a codec dump on Linux. Now, under System Information I get this for Audio Intel High Definition Audio: Audio ID: 28 Speaker: Connection: Internal Headphone: Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack External Microphone / iPhone Headset: Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack Internal Microphone: Connection: Internal HDMI / DisplayPort Output: Connection: Display But on System Preferences, I still don't see any devices
  3. iCloud/FaceTime/App Store/iMessage Don't work

    I'll try that when I get off work in 9 hrs , but thanks for fixing my Ethernet
  4. iCloud/FaceTime/App Store/iMessage Don't work

    WOW Thanks bro, my ethernet shows up now, but I've tried removing all my network adapters from system preferences, but after I add my wifi card, it automatically makes that en0 and my ethernet en1
  5. I installed ML on my Lenovo G580 laptop. I now i need to have Ethernet as en0 to make these work. But my ethernet card is an Atheros AR8162 which is unsupported. My wifi is also unsupported (Broadcom BCM4313) so I bought a D-Link DWA 131 WiFi adapter, which works perfectly. The thing is, I can't use any of the apps listed on my title, iTunes works fine thankfully. When i try to log in the App Store, it says An Unknown Error Occurred If I check my system properties, this is what I get for my internet adapter
