    [Guide] 10.11 El Capitan On the Surface Pro 4

    Hey, This is incredible news. I am also working to get the Surface pro 4 run OSX. I really love the new Surface Pro 4, but it will take some time to get OSX run smooth and we all know that Wifi never will work. I will be testing a little more and keep you updated. Well done
  2. <Surface 2 OSX i5-4300u Users> I get the question where to put dart=0 in the config.plist a lot : Voila ... <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-f npci=0x2000 darkwake=0 dart=0</string> <key>DefaultVolume</key> <string>Mavericks</string> <key>Fast</key> <false/> <key>Legacy</key> <string>LegacyBiosDefault</string> <key>Log</key> <false/> <key>Timeout</key> <integer>5</integer> <key>XMPDetection</key> <string>-1</string> </dict> <key>Devices</key> The Surface Pro 2 has the Realtek ALC3230. The AppleHDA drivers are not compatible with the ALC3230.
  3. Microsoft intros an LTE version of the Surface 2, arrives tomorrow for $679 As hard as it is to believe, Microsoft has until now never put out a 3G/4G Surface tablet. But we knew one would come eventually: the company said it was working on an LTE-enabled Surface 2 and indeed, the thing recently surfaced (har) in FCC documents. Now it's finally here: Microsoft just announced that the LTE Surface 2 will go on sale tomorrow, and will be compatible on AT&T's 4G network here in the US. (Fun fact: its official name is literally "Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE)".) All told, it'll sell for $679 with 64GB of built-in storage. That's a $130 premium over the 64GB WiFi-only model which, if you're paying attention, is the same premium you'd pay for a cellular iPad over a WiFi one (it's worth noting, however, that the 4G Surface 2 is considerably less expensive). Happily, the Surface 2 comes free of any contractual agreements. The big catch, of course, is that you'll need an AT&T micro-SIM: the tablet supports LTE bands 4, 7 and 17, along with 3G UTMS (bands 1, 2 and 5) and regular old GSM (800/900/1800/1900MHz). In theory, that also means you should be able to get away with using a T-Mobile SIM, since T-Mobile also uses LTE 4 and 1900MHz 3G. T-Mo isn't officially supported, though, so don't expect anything in the way of possible bug fixes or performance enhancements. Either way, what's nice is that even with the LTE, the tablet promises the same battery life (up to 10 hours) and basically weighs the same as it did before. In any case, you can find the Surface 2 with LTE tomorrow at Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com and Best Buy (but not AT&T stores, oddly). Oh, and all those promotions Microsoft was offering back when the Surface 2 first launched? They still apply five months later on this LTE version. That means you can expect 200GB of free OneDrive storage for two years and a year of unlimited Skype WiFi calling and landline calls.
  4. Microsoft Power Cover doubles the Surface's battery life for $200 on March 19th With the right accessories, the Surface Pro makes a mean alternative to your average laptop -- but even with the second generation model's improved battery life, it doesn't last long outside of the house. Soon, that might be less of an issue: Microsoft is preparing to ship out the tablet's Power Cover keyboard later this month. The $200 Type Cover variant was originally announced with the Surface 2, but didn't make it to market with the new tablets. Now the company has given it a March 19th ship date, promising buyers 70% more battery life for Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2 and RT-basedSurface 2 slates. Pricey? A bit, but can you think of a better way to nurse your Windows 8 slate on an international flight?
  5. Very Easy and works fine. Best buy SwitchResX : • sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool YES; • Then download switchresx to enable custom resolution, • from the sresx preference panel add this scaled resolution: 2732x1536 Extra info : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/292645-guide-surfacepro-1-2-osx-android-windows-multiboot/?p=1990407
  6. Yes, I have the same SFP2 i5-4200u. I did send you a private message. I updated the VoodooHDA, I hope it will now works.
  7. SURFACE2OSX My VoodooHDA works perfect ... I have no issue ... I think it's safe to install. If someone have problems, remove the VoodooHDA. VoodooHDA.kext is unstable on the Surface Pro 2 @ Jahstories (can you add this to page 1 for installation 10.9.2 on the SF2) At the end of this post, you will find the updated FilesPackage V0.3.2 for OSX 10.9.2 The mach_kernel has been patched for 10.9.2. You can still use the install guide from page 1 for the Surface Pro 2 (but of course use the new files for 10.9.2) Remove also AppleHDA.kext, if you use the VoodooHDA. If you do a software update from 10.9/10.9.1, you have to boot after the update from a USB-drive and copy the new mach_kernel with the terminal (don't forget to copy the mach_kernel to a seperate folder on the USB-drive) FilesPackage for install 10.9.2 on the Surface Pro 2 UPDATE : If you have problems with installation, remove the VoodooHDA.kext
  8. 1. Did you update or new install ? Did you startup without caches and injected kexts ? 2. Can you startup in Safe-mode ? 3. Install this AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext 4. Remove all NVIDEA / ATI / GFORCE kext (Graphic Drivers) 5. Intel Core i5-4200u or Intel Core i5-4300u
  9. SURFACE2OSX Hi Everyone, At the end of this post, you will find the updated FilesPackage V0.3.2 for OSX 10.9.2 The mach_kernel has been patched for 10.9.2. You can still use the install guide from page 1 for the Surface Pro 2 (but of course use the new files for 10.9.2) Remove also AppleHDA.kext, if you use the VoodooHDA. If you do a software update from 10.9/10.9.1, you have to boot after the update from a USB-drive and copy the new mach_kernel with the terminal (don't forget to copy the mach_kernel to a seperate folder on the USB-drive) FilesPackage for install 10.9.2 on the Surface Pro 2 UPDATE : If you have problems with install, remove the VoodooHDA.kext
  10. Hi Everyone, I've tried to follow the guide (reinstall everything) and use the 10.9.2 image, make changes, updating everything, checking the logs. Nothing works and a lot of errors. I found other people on other forums who also have problems with 10.9.2 No 10.9.2 on the SF2 for now Already Surface pro 1 users who have tried to install 10.9.2 ?
  11. Already tried it ... I did also find this on this forum :-) The most Hackintoshes doesn't have a problem with 10.9.2 It's more complicated, i'm afraid
  12. IMPORTANT : DON'T UPDATE TO 10.9.2 I updated to 10.9.2 and my Surface Pro 2 didn't boot anymore. I think Apple updated the mach_kernel. EDIT : I tried to copy the modified mach_kernel to the updated 10.9.2 system, but the SF2 won't boot. I think we also need an updated "FakeSMC.kext"
  13. @ Jahstories You have an idea if there is a way to use the virtual keyboard at the login screen ? That's the only place where I can't use the virtual keyboard. I use now the standard virtual keyboard in OSX, but when I need to type my password, I have to connect the Surface Keyboard. Maybe corallosoft virtual keyboard does have this future ?
  14. Here you can download the drivers for OSX : Drivers Edimax
  15. Hi, I can't find osx 10.9 drivers supported for the USB sticks. If you want to buy a stick. Search first the OSX drivers. About battery life : It of course depend on what you are doing, but I get mostly a few hours (2/3h)
