  1. you can get a bootpack here http://www.osxlatitude.com/edp/compatibility/
  2. what did you use to get sound and fn keys working? I am using VoohooHDA for sound, it's great but would prefer stock AppleHDA if possible. I also am experiencing the same issues you're listing, except my wi-fi is always booted as turned off, and I have put the laptop into sleep mode and then wake it in order to turn on wi-fi. I actually don't mind this hassle at all. I am also having those other issues you're listing. However given my experiences with hackintosh in the past, I consider this a good build.
  3. I am happy to report after some soldering work (a little trickier than I thought), Atheros 9285 card is finally fully functional. Hopefully this will be the last time I open this baby up. :-)
  4. Not exactly. USB wifi and ethernet are not recognized as built-in eth0 device, whereas an intercard with proper kext is recognized as such and then App Store works. Since the antenna connectors are not compatible, you can swap a new internal card inside (giving the eth0 device) and then use the USB wifi dongle (as your true connection), and it'll most definitely work. Haha, I fixed the antenna inside and between the battery and bottom cover. Reception is tolerable, but if I have a bigger apartment then I will have to go ghetto too. Btw, the best installation would be inside the LED panel, something like this http://www.mercenary.ca/articles/r30_antenna.php
  5. Also, I am not going to try to figure out how to get WIFI working. Instead, I ordered an adapter from Newegg, which looks great on a MacBook Pro. I will post and let everyone know how it works. http://www.newegg.co...=9SIA18009Z0813 [uPDATE] - Got my wifi dongle in the mail today and it woks great! Now I need to figure out how to get App Store going. [uPDATE] - Finally I swapped out the WLAN card with Atheros AR5B195 and now the App Store works because it's recognized as an Airport Extreme card. But the reception is all but 5 yards or so because the wifi antenna connectors are not compatible. In fact, I haven't been able to find a perfectly matched mini PCI-E card. So I continue to use the dongle and be able to access App Store, iCloud, etc. I ordered these antenna (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200848309504&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123) that should have the compatible connectors and plan to install them on the bottom and hopefully that will be THE wifi solution.
  6. I use Proxi to script FN keys on my Asus N53S. There was no way to get it working via dsdt, but I found this solution very satisfactory. Let me know if you need any sample scripts. [uPDATE] - Turns out Proxi is unsupported and doesn't work on ML. Searching for new software now. [uPDATE] - Using Keyboard Maestro now. It's even better than Proxi!
  7. Yup. I got my laptop to work almost fully over the weekend. Thanks.
  8. Any updates? I have N53SV-EH72 and the internal 1920x1080 screen is not showing anything. However the VGA out is working, so my Asus became a desktop. But I still would like to know how to get the internal LCD to work. Using "ioreg -l", I was able to see the system is recognizing the EDID of the internal LCD, but somehow it's blank. Maybe the backlight is not turned on for some reason, but I can't really tell one way or the other.
  9. [HELP] Lion on Asus N53SV

    Any updates? I was able to install using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] procedure on a GPT partition, except the 1920x1080 screen is not displaying anything and I had to use the VGA output to a 1080p TV to see everything (including installation process). When install, I used cpus=1 as the only option. If not working for you, try -x cpus=1, and that should be enough.
  10. Driver Help for Snow Leopard

    I have Samsung Q430-JU01US, which looks to be the same spec as the QX410. I got it to run 10.6.5 with vanilla kernel. Mostly everything works, except the following Hybrid Intel Core i HD graphics and nVidia 310m Marvell Gigabit Ethernet Sleep The mac is only running on VESA display which is unattractive to say the least. But this is a well known issue, and people can't even get linux run on this thing with full graphics. I believe Sleep doesn't work because of the graphics issue. Ethernet port is not a biggie to me. One other thing is Flash doesn't work properly, again I suspect graphics being the culprit. It's a pitty that such a solid machine can't do full graphics.
  11. I have a Vostro 1310. Thanks to this wonderful package, the 1310 is working 99% now, with the 1% that doesn't work being microphone. I have a post that explains how to get the sound working. This includes sound after wakeup from sleep. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t=#entry1095450 I used Superhai's EHCISleepEnabler for various USB issues I had, and it works perfectly with Apple's stock USB kext's (I always try NOT to modify Apple's driver as much as possible). Now, my gig running 10.5.6 vanilla kernel is the best computer I've ever built! Thanks to all people that come before me to make this happen!
  12. Running a script after sleep

    I have a Dell Vostro 1310. Thanks to your posts here, I've solved my sound issue once and for all (caveat being the microphone not working, but I use a bluetooth headset for that purpose). This is the script that works for me. #!/bin/sh sudo reggie_se -D PhysAddr -w 0x01470c02 -a 0xf8500060 -B 32 &> /dev/null sudo reggie_se -D PhysAddr -w 1 -a 0xf8500068 -B 32 &> /dev/null sudo reggie_se -D PhysAddr -w 0x143B000 -a 0xf8500060 -B 32 &> /dev/null sudo reggie_se -D PhysAddr -w 1 -a 0xf8500068 -B 32 &> /dev/null sudo reggie_se -D PhysAddr -w 0x153B080 -a 0xf8500060 -B 32 &> /dev/null sudo reggie_se -D PhysAddr -w 1 -a 0xf8500068 -B 32 &> /dev/null I found the verb addresses used above via the output.sh in the Audieee package. Then I used sleepwatcher to run the above script (found out that root:wheel must be the owner:group of the script for it to run). As for the AppleHDA.kext driver. I found the ALC268 driver fix from "Dell laptop post installer v1.4" being the best. Thanks again!
  13. Has anyone figured out how to get sleep working on these Vostro 1310 yet? My Vostro didn't have integrated camera and bluetooth originally, and it was not having sleep issue. Then I ordered them from Dell and installed, then I started getting the sleep issue. But here's a hint that may help. When my vostro didn't have the camera, it at one time was having the sleep issue whenver there was an external USB device attached. To fix that, I had to enable USB power in the BIOS, then the sleep issue went away. I am convinced that the resolution lies in the USB driver. And it may not be handling internal USB devices (the camera, for example) correctly. Thanks.
