12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, all...

My Eee PC's Wifi broke recently, after testing sleep. Airport says "no airport card installed" or something like that...

Install method: iAtkos S3 V2 AsereBLN bootloader, Voodoo TSC, VoodooHDA, atherosfix.pkg; netbookinstaller 0.8.4 RC1 Charmelon NBI, General Extensions

Do I need a diffrent kext?

i use AR5B91 aka Ar9281 with no extra kexts.. works oob as its it is 2A while Ar9285 is 2B (not in stock kext.. add it)

 

likely u need to turn off in bios fast boot or quickboot. (someone had this issue and that fixed it.)

make sure your wifi is setup as b+g only that was the issue that worked for my eepc. I used AtherosWiFiInjector.kext and kexthelper to install it. I am only using SL 10.6.3 and I am afraid if I update I will break something.

hello

 

some atheros 9285 need to be patched in dsdt... and someones only work b+g not n.. check in router..

 

no WLAN (device)

 

into device name_adr 0x001C0001 insert
begin
Device (WLAN)\n
{\n
   Name (_ADR, 0x00)\n
   Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)\n
   {\n
    Store (Package (0x0C)\n
	    {\n
		    "AAPL,slot-name", \n
		    Buffer (0x08)\n
		    {\n
			    "AirPort"\n
		    }, \n
		    "device-id", \n
		    Unicode ("*"), \n
		    "device_type", \n
		    Buffer (0x08)\n
		    {\n
			    "AirPort"\n
		    }, \n
		    "model", \n
		    Buffer (0x34)\n

		    Buffer (0x04)\n
		    {\n

		    Buffer (0x04)\n
		    {\n
			    0x6B, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00\n
		    }\n
	    }, Local0)\n
    DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))\n
    Return (Local0)\n
   }\n
}
end

 

with WLAN

 

into device name_adr 0x00 parent_adr 0x001C0001 insert

{\n
   Store (Package (0x0C)\n

Just this code is enough for my PCIe wireless card to work:

 

Device (ARPT)
{
Name (_ADR, Zero)
Name (_PRW, Package (0x02)
{
0x0B,
0x05
})
Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Package (0x04)
{
"device-id",
Unicode ("*"),
"subsystem-vendor-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x6B, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00
}
}, Local0)
DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
Return (Local0)
}
}

 

Tipo de tarjeta: AirPort Extreme (0x168C, 0x30A4)
Versión del firmware: Atheros 9287: 4.0.72.0-P2P

      Hi, is Qualcomm Atheros AR956x compatible with MacOS Mojave 10.14.3?
    • By Bushi93
      Finally Manage to make on of the most powerful and compact Hackintosh available with > the i9-9940X 14 cores + the AsRock X299e motherboard and Vega RX 64 8GB.
      Used for Editing, Motion Design and VFX on Mojave 10.14.3
      Exports time >Four time faster compared to my last i7 6 cores hackintosh.

      Need to add a lot of parameters to get the config.plst to work but once it's right it Works very smoothly!
      Turbo Boost up to 4.2 Ghz all core

      Geekbench scores
      Multi core : 54000 (above the iMacPro 18 cores)
      Single core : 5200
      GPU : 186 800

      Ethernet & Audio work without kext
       
      GPU : The Gygabite VEGA RX 64 required a lowfanspeed.kext otherwise it will always have the fans running in full speed mode (and it can get really noisy).

      Bluetooth & wifi (you can get a blue tooth dongle - the Azus works but you may experience some issue or lag sometime so the best solution is to replace the Bluetooth/Wifi card with the Bcm94360cs2 AC + its adaptor:

      With this card you won't need any kext to make it work : you will get native bluetooth and wifi support and even be able to control your bios and clover with your bluetooth magic mouse / keyboard !
       
      USB3 PORTS : need to add some kext
      1 of the 2 USB 3.1 WORK in full speed > USB C  in 3.1 and for some mysterious reson the other USB type A in 3.1 work as USB 2 only
      The other 4 USB3 work fine and the 2 USB3 of my front IO (NCASE M1) work fine too 

      XRP RAM OVERCLOCK : YES
      CPU Overcloking to 4.5GHz may work but did experience some freeze/crash and didn't notice any increase in render time when activated.

      Here is a quick overview of my setup

      Hello,

      I've updated via system preference fro 10.14.2 to 10.14.3 successfully. However, I've lost location services for Siri and Maps.

      Anyone else?

      I've tried a little trial and error troubleshooting but no luck...
      SysPref->Privacy->Location Services is enabled with all settings checked. I've tried to disable and enable, but not luck.

      I tested booting from previous backup of 10.14.2 install/uefi (pre update) and Location Services worked.

      Prior to OSX update I also updated to latest clover, WEG, Lilu, AirportBrcmFixup, AppleALC.

      So I tested by downgrading all of the above one at a time to the previous state, and still no Location services on 10.14.3

      I've used kext utility to repair any broken kexts.

      I've also tried forcequiting from activity monitor:
      com.apple.geod

      And I've Try Deleting:
      Library/Preferences/com.apple.GEO.plist
      Library/Containers/com.apple.geod

      I've booted into a guest user and this did not allow location services either.

      My build is using a native Broadcom BCM94352Z Dell DW1560 and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext + BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext

      Any thoughts?

      I want to buy a WiFi/bt card for my hackintosh. I want a card that have a native support for MacOS because I need to use Handoff and AirDrop. I saw the card in the link below: anyone could tell me if the card have the requirements I mentioned before?

      Hi people,
       
      This is a preliminary installer to activate the Combo Mini PCIe Atheros QCWB335 in MacOS.
       
      I want to thank the whole community for their efforts and content provided, because without these it would not be possible to create this installer.
       
      I would appreciate comments and suggestions!!
