ASUS S56CA - ML installation

Recommended Posts

Asus-S56CA-front_original.jpg

Fist of all I'd like to thank Dinesh for all the hard work developing the touchpad and Fn Keys' kexts, without himwouldn't have been possible.

The SD card reader won't work and surely you'd have to swap your WIFI card for a compatible one, all the rest will work like a charm.

You are going to need a 8GB flash Drive, a Mac or a Hack, some spare time, a bit of patience and al least half brain to make it.

ASUS S56CA.zip

MY SPECIFICATIONS:

INTEL i5 3317U
HD4000
ALC 270
ATHEROS AR9285

BIOS 208

1.CREATE THE INSTALLER:

. Precook MountainLion10.8.4.dmg with my hack in a 8GB USB flash drive formatted in Mac Os X Extender (journaled) GUID Partition Table using a MAC or a HACK.

. Copy the folder ASUS S56CA into the flash drive.

. COPY SMBios.plist, org.chameleon.Boot.plist, ApplePS2Controller.kext and ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext and delete the others PS2 kexts in that folder from ASUS S56CA/EXTRA Folder INTO The EXTRA Folder of MYHACKINSTALLDISK in the USB.

. Repair permissions of the installer.

By now you should be good to go, just delete NullPowerManagement.kext from EXTRA folder and repair permisions with myhack.app.


Remember to reinstall audio kexts when updating Mountain Lion and most importantly though, enjoy your new Hack Build.
