  1. Asus 1201N Installation and support [Mav]

    Matteo, .venice. just suggested that you have to delete the SSDT-4.aml file on the EFI partiton, but I think that the original solution was to actually replace it with another one that enables DW1510 on the system. Just look for earlier posts on this forum, I think it was TimeWalker75a who shared the althernative SSDT-4.aml file. It worked perfectly for me and that's the method I'm still using. To be honest I have no idea what's the practical difference between these two methods and which one is better. I know that TimeWalker75a is a local guru here, though. Good luck! Just my 3c worth... you do have the correct SSDT-4.aml file in your EFI partition, don't you? The one TimeWalker75a shared in one of his earlier posts on this forum.
  2. Asus 1201N Installation and support [Mav]

    I have Yosemite Beta 6 (14A388b) running almost perfectly fine (thanks again to all who contributed to that!), the only real complaints being low USB speeds and low FaceTime resolution. I can live with the latter, but the former is quite a bummer. Do you guys think there's a chance it will ever be solved? Also, what's the procedure to update to the official version of Yosemite? Install it from the store just like all the other apps? Or, install it all anew? Or maybe there's no need to update since the build number is almost the same (14A389)? Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Asus 1201N Installation and support [Mav]

    I wish I could help, but for me the combination that works is the one with 0x93, and then this is how System Information sees it: Interfaces: en1: Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x93) Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 ( MAC Address: 00:**:**:**:**:00 Locale: FCC Country Code: US Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 a/b/g/n Supported Channels: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 149, 153, 157, 161, 165 AirDrop: Supported Status: Connected To be honest I can't remember why I chose this combination, but I know that the rebranding took me more time than I thought it would, the thing is - it's been more than a year already since I did it. There was also something with the locale setting (I'm in the EU and obviously would like to be able to use more channels), but I can't remember the details right now. I'll try to dig up the backup and see if I can find any more details. Meanwhile - good luck!

    First of all thank you all for making 1201n a working platform again, with very special thanks for all the time and effort put in by TimeWalker75a, you’ve really made an incredible job! I’m quite impressed by all the little details that you have worked out. THANK YOU!!! Since I just sold my 15” MPB and haven’t bought a new one yet, the 1201n has become my main machine for now. The Clover installation is quite straight-forward, the instructions are very clear, and basically if you follow the steps (maybe repeat some) you end up with a working machine. Thanks again for that! I have one experience which might be useful for the folks who are still having problems with their DW1510. I rebranded mine to an airport card and it worked OOB with my earlier installations of OS X. Once I replaced SSDT-4 to the one provided by TimeWalker75a (thank you, again!) it started working with the current installations of both Mavericks and Yosemite. But a day passed and it stopped again! Suspecting a hardware failure, I went to download Linux Mint (I guess any other system supporting that board would have worked as well), installed the proprietary drivers WITHIN the live system, connected to the wifi… and now my DW1510 works again under both Mavericks and Yosemite. Maybe that’s what you guys having problems with the card could try? Last, but not least, I also have three problems I have encountered, hoping that someone might have the solutions: 1. While iCloud, Apple Store, FaceTime work fine, Messages is a no-go. I did make sure before activation that that eth0 is Ethernet, and eth1 is wifi, deleted the network config, too. I also made sure I had a valid serial number and a a credit card registered in my account (as suggested by TimeWalker), unfortunately Messages just won’t work. When I try to activate it I either get: “Could not sign in to iMessage. An error occurred during activation. Try again.” or it just get stuck activating with no error message at all. 2. My external USB devices (pendrives, hard drives and SD cards in the reader) are only working at 12mpbs (according to System Information), copying files takes forever (as did the installation - now I know why). I’m not expecting USB3.0 speeds, but it would be nice to be back to the 480mbps world 3. As suggested on other forums, I've already disassembled my 1201n and removed all the extra stickers that were covering the ventilation openings on the bottom cover (still wondering why would ASUS put them there in the first place), it hasn't shut down automatically since, but the computer still seems quite hot with the CPU heat-sink at 78-80C, the cores at 45-50C, and the fan spinning at about 4000rpm, while I'm typing this message in Chrome. (My room temperature is around 20C.) If I let the processor >90% idle for a few moments, only then does the heat-sink temperature go down to 75-76C. My CPU runs at 2GHz and the GPU at 324MHz, going back to 1.6GHz with the CPU doesn't seem to have much influence. Has anybody encountered similar problems? I would really appreciate your suggestions.
