    Almost success XPS 8000 (10.6.3)

    I gave up on the network card and just bought the Apple USB to ethernet adapter. Everything works perfectly now.

    BCM5752 driver 14EE:1600 tested ok

    What hex values should I look for to change to 14e4:1692? For the 1692, I know I should be changing all "66 81 FA 00 16" with "66 81 FA 92 16", right?
  3. Quick question. How do I know if this is really working on my Snow Leopard 64? I'm trying to narrow down my ethernet problem to my PCI driver or ethernet card (BCM57780 14e4:1692) driver. kextstat shows that IOPCIFamily.kext is running. I dont think I see any errors in my console. Are there any I should specifically look for?

    sjchu, were you able to get the network card working? I had no luck so far I first installed the IOPCIFamily.kext from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1460172 I updated to 10.6.5, modified the following kext before I put it into the plugins folder because my card is a BCM57780 14e4:1692. But when I watch my system boot, I see an error along the lines of "1692 Device Unknown" http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=69993 What I did to modify the kext was Info.plist (IONameMatch): Replace the string 'pci14e4,1693' with 'pci14e4,1692' and /contents/MacOS/AppleBCM5701Ethernet (hexedited): replaced all "66 81 FA 93 16" with "66 81 FA 92 16". There was a few of them. Did I miss anything?

    Broadcom BCM5787M/BCM5784M - A solution

    I modified the kext in "update 2" before I put it into the plugins folder because my card is a BCM57780 14e4:1692. But when I watch my system (10.6.3) boot, I see an error along the lines of "1692 Device Unknown" What I did to modify the kext was Info.plist (IONameMatch): Replace the string 'pci14e4,1693' with 'pci14e4,1692' and /contents/MacOS/AppleBCM5701Ethernet (hexedited): replaced all "66 81 FA 93 16" with "66 81 FA 92 16". There was a few of them. Did I miss something or do it entirely wrong?

    I was able to do a complete install to a separate partition on my system. I used nawcom's bootcd http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=446 Then I used a 10.6.3 Snow Leopard Retail After the install, I updated chameleon to http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=82441 Then, I edited my apple.boot.plist Set GraphicsEnabler=n forced 64bit mode busratio=24 Now, I have snow leopard up and running w/ full graphics acceleration. Now time to work on the BMC 57780

    I get to "Ready to boot for the first time?". I select my BCD entry and start my usb harddrive w/ -v option. I see various text scroll through the empire screen. Then, my screen turns black.
