Recommended Posts

Wiki Link


===Inspiron N5050 ===

*Install Method: unifail USB install - make sure Install Mac OS X Lion.app is in Applications folder and check Laptop Support to create

After installation reboot and enter these flags : "-v GraphicsEnabler=No -x -f" and install multifail (I used DSDTPatcherGUI to make DSDT.aml for User multifail install, selected VoodooHDA, PS/2, FakeSMC, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, chimera (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) and MacPro 8,1 model)

*Chipset: Intel HM67

*Bootloader: chimera (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) 1.5.4

*Processor: Intel Core i3

*Audio: IDT Audio Codec (using voodooHDA 2.7.3 preferencePane works)

*Video: Intel HD Graphics 3000, works native

*Ethernet, Wifi, and Integrated Camera: All tested and work fine (Need an Atheros AR5B95 kext for the wireless)

*USB 3.0: Working fine, same for the USB 2.0 port

*HDMI, External VGA Port, Card Reader: works, no audio for HDMI tho

*Trackpad: Working but only with single touch

*Battery: Working using AppleSmartBatteryManager

*Sleep works with SleepEnabler.kext from Nawcom's blog


=> Note: the hard drive must be formatted as GUID to succeed the installation, Athreos WiFi only connects to G routers w/WPA2 Personal and wake from sleep to connect!


My Dell Specs :

Intel i3-2310M 2,10 Ghz 4GB RAM , Intel HD 3000, HDD 500 GB

Hi, i have a Dell XPS L502x running OS X Lion 10.7.4 and i got the Dell Wireless 1701 802.11 b/g/n from my brother's Inspiron N5050.

I installed Atheros AR5B95 kext using Kext Wizard, repaired permissons, rebuild cache, restart but the kext doesn't seam to load. I also tried the kext for Dell Wireless 1702, but the same, it doesn't get loaded.


Do i have to do anything else besides installing the kext? Editing DSDT.aml or boot.chameleon..?


Edit: The same happened on the N5050, the kext wasn't loading.
