Hello.

Im interesting this laptop.

How about usb3.0?

No need extra kext?

It has a Renesas XHCI controller which is not very well supported by modern macOS. I use oyen's driver which mostly works...

 

Perhaps there's some progress on this that I'm not aware of?!!

 

That aside, it's the most compatible hardware I ever had. And I've had a lot.

Hd3000 works on 10.6.8. But we need to find hex patch for hdmi or vga patch like lion.

I will find this hex from debug.

I bought L502x today. I successed to install snow leopard. I will check. Thanks

 Yes,I know about this

I was install 10.6.8 a few years ago and I have a problem to boot and getting kernel panic on AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext (default 10.6.8 kext)

By replacing this kext on another one from Lion's 10.7.0 beta (i don't remember a beta version number) I was able to boot into os

The best experience I had on this laptop was with 10.10

USB 3.0 worked perfectly with patched apple xhci drivers

Don't know about wifi/bt combo cards,I was replace original wifi/bt module with DELL DW1510 Wireless Card BCM94322HM8L(2.4/5Ghz 300mbps ) and USB BT Belkin F8T016NG (it has BCM2046B1 chip,like in native apple's bt modules)

DELL DW1510 works nice (out of box) in any mac os,because it also has native chip supported by apple drivers

 

p.s why 10.6.8 ??? why not a 10.11.6 or 10.12.5 ???

Personally speaking, if the laptop has combo mini-PCIE/USB port (like WWAN), I highly recommend Apple's own BCM94360CD with adapter board. Full 802.11ac (1300Mbps) + BT4.0; all working OOB and with all BT hardware because it's an Apple product.

BT will only be 3.0, just thought you should know.

Hi all, again.

About a two left USB  3.0 ports. I have a kexts which make this ports to work. And i will upload that kext in special folder on my Google Drive( goo.gl/37sVU5 ).
I don't try a full 3.0 speed, because i don't have a usb 3.0 flash-stick. Anyone, welcome :) 
That kext work in 10.11 and 10.12 very well for all USB 2.0 device. I don't know how this kext will work with a 3.0.
 

In future, i will make a some guides in one big tree.  For a comfort. :)

UPD: Pls call that "Nargore's Folder" :D

This is what I use. It works at full USB 3.0 speed with my external hdd. A bit slow in recognizing devices though. I believe it only works with storage devices though.
