  1. Oh wow, that sounds a lot simpler. I thought each option, a) and c) was required, that they were sequential steps. I just finished editing the .plist files in the BT and wifi kexts, and was moving on to the DSDT edit. So I don't have to do any of that I guess. Will restore the native ones, and use the method you described. Also in the readme of that folder, BCM94352 is listed under both bcm4352.kext and toledaARPT.kext. Why is this? I used bcm4352 as you suggested, and it is working fine. Thank you for all your help.
  2. I've downloaded the zip files and have been trying to figure out exactly what I need to do to enable wifi and BT on my z87i-itx (BCM4352). Like I said, I'm a little bit new to this, this is my first build, and I've definitely just jumped in the deep end -- a lot of this stuff is over my head. At a high level, exactly what needs to be done? As I understand it, I need to: 1. Edit the plist file, which is synonymous with editing the .kext, then install it (how exactly do I do this?) 2. Do something with a DSDT in order to enable it, which involves using the patch files in the .zip download. Is this correct? Is there somewhere you could point me to fill the gaps in my knowledge here?
  3. Hmmm. It could just be a coincidence, but after I deleted the file, it froze on boot with the last line being: "HDA Enabler: 03/07/2009 Compiled for 32/64-bit by Taruga" Then it would just say "Still waiting for root device." I tried booting a couple times more, but it just kept hanging at that place. So I copied the file back to the Desktop after booting into safe mode, restarted, and it booted just fine.
  4. It worked! Thanks for your patience. One final question: it put a file audio_ALC1150 onto my desktop. I assumed it was a remnant of the installation, so I removed it (after copying it somewhere else just to be safe). I found that after this, I wasn't able to boot up normally. So, I guess I have to leave this file on my desktop? For Wifi, I downloaded the program, here is the screenshot:
  5. Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I am no longer using the H87 board. I replaced it with the Z87 board. So, if I understand you correctly, I've got to: 1. Install combo update 2. Run the script 3. Run an audio enabler. What exactly is the ssdt? I do not currently have a DSDT installed, as far as I know. Thanks for your help!
  6. I just swapped out my motherboard (z87i-deluxe for h87i-plus), so I already have a patched appleHDA.kext. I understand I need to get the native one back again to install the 1150 patch. How exactly do I do this? The guide mentioned the combo update -- I'm already at the latest version of OS X, however. Is there anywhere I can just download the original kext and replace it? And I'm still a little confused how to install the new kext - I'm pretty new to the world of Hackintosh. Can I use the utility listed directly above? Or can I just run the script included in the download, and everything will be OK? Or are there other other things I need to do -- something in the guide about 4 possible techniques for enabling the kext?
  7. Hi there. I've just installed 10.8.5 on a Z87I-Deluxe board. It boots up fine, ethernet works, but I don't have sound or BT or wifi yet? Just to clarify, will both of these fixes work with ML or do they only work with Mavericks DP? Also, I'm still a little new to this -- would I download the attached files and simply dump them into System/Library/Extensions? Or how exactly do I apply them to my system? Thanks if advance for your help.

    [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    Which USB port would I use? And do you know how to tell if I need to flash the BIOS in the first place?

    [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    That might be an earlier revision or something. http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks/103788-just-warning-asus-mobos.html I don't see a flashback button on my board. Also, how do I know if my board need flashing in the first place?

    [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    I'm in a little over my head. If I get a board with bios flashback, will that work for sure? If so, why will that work, but the method through the UEFI won't work? Also, can anyone tell me how to tell if these boards even need flashed to load OS X? I was under the impression that some of the newer asus boards didn't need patching.

    I apologize, I'm not terribly familiar with all of this. Could you go into a little more detail? I thought I read something about the first part of the bios file being for security -- so I assume you're telling me I have to cut this out? I've only tried to update it through the EZ flash 2 updater in the UEFI, and it failed the security verification. How would I go about cutting this out? What tools do I need?

    I am having this same problem. I was told that this board (H87i-plus) most likely had the MSR unlocked. Is this true? If not, am I able to flash the board using FTK?
