    Ati Radeon 4350 with Mountain Lion

    Hi I managed to let work AMD Radeon 4350 (512 Mb) on Mountain Lion. I follow advice of 'Here to help' (from os86 forum) and edited Mountain Lion 10.8.2 ATI4600.kext to add HD4350 support (id = 0x954f). It worked well, with no need of any other hacks (like modifiy org.chameleon.boot.plist). Just work out of the box! I tested it with dual screens config, using DVI and HDMI ports (24" and 17"). Here is the modified Kext (just added 0x954f1002 to info.plist at line 62). ATI4600Controller.kext.zip If you have different model ID, I can add to ATI4600.kext, if needed. Enjoy
  2. First of all, thanks for this usefull howto (Although i didn't switch yet to Lion!, I prefer SL) Like everybody, I was worried about native Wi-Fi support on Toshiba L500 series. Genuine Wi-Fi chip (RTL8191SE) don't seems to be supported yet. Then, I swap cards, and installed an Atheros AR5008. Unfortunately, Bios silently discarded my card (whitelist), and unpowered it. I had two options, cover pin20 of my card (to ignore power/unpower signal) OR extract/modify BIOS whitelist. I did the second option and it work pretty well now! For tech guys, withelist is located in BIOSCOD02.ROM, between offset 49F0 and 4A20. By the way, here is the complete whitelist for Toshiba L500 series, this could be usefull to change your wificard without trouble... And good news, some Atheros cards are listed 168C:002A (Atheros AR928X) 168C:002B (Atheros AR9285) 8086:4235 (Intel WiFi Link 5300) 8086:4232 (Intel WiFi Link 5100) 8086:423C (Intel WiFi Link 5150) 10EC:8199 (Realtek 8187SE) 10EC:8192 (Realtek 8192SE) 10EC:8172 (Realtek 8191SE)

    BTW, you have to autorize kextload and kextunload in sudoers file. You easily do it that way: 1. Open a shell command 2. sudo visudo 3. Append following lines at the end of file: %users localhost=/sbin/kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AttansicL1Ethernet.kext %users localhost=/sbin/kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AttansicL1Ethernet.kext 4.Write/quit That's it!

    You can easily do it. By using SleepWatcher, who monitor Mac's sleep and wakeup activity. Then, SleepWatcher will execute sleep/wakeup scripts. You have a live example who show you how to dismount devices when going to sleep. http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?sto...080329201951648 Then, you just have to put following lines in scripts: In .sleep: sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AttansicL1Ethernet.kext In .wakeup: sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AttansicL1Ethernet.kext Hope this help.
