  1. ASUS G73JH - Mac OS X 10.6.6 - All is WORKING!

    Try with Empire EFI, [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] didn't work for me. The flags I needed changed randomly, but the most consistent was "-x32 maxmem=4096". That's all I can say.

    Jeff, Can you point me in the direction of the specific file/fix that enables the keyboard backlight? I have a G73JH and would love to try it out.

    Send me a copy of the install DVD to my address and I'll test it out for you
  4. ASUS G73JH - Mac OS X 10.6.6 - All is WORKING!

    Am I the only one that thinks there must be some sort of hardware/BIOS switch, as the keyboard lights flash on while the machine is POSTing... Also, has anyone got the webcam to work? The light turns on with mine, so it is sort-of recognised but there's no video from it, just a black screen. I have to say that I think exactly the same thing, the air coming out of the back seems to be a lot hotter when doing nothing than on Windows, and it sounds louder. I'm wondering if OS X is just running the processor at its max frequency all the time (or close to it), rather than slowing it down when it's not needed. I don't know how to check CPU core freqs in OS X though.

    Read through the other G73JH thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=250668. It has lots of info about the n problems. I believe there's a fix somewhere, but I haven't needed to do it yet so can't remember what it is. Yes, I got this after my display blanked, I turned it back on, it did the fade to white thing and I restarted. It stayed like that for about a minute or so after the reboot, but has been fine since. Also I have 10.6.6 installed and working fine with full QE/CI, so what would be the benefit of me upgrading to 10.6.7? Just having a working shutdown button? Or would I get better performance out of my 5870? Please advise.
