(...In Progress...)



What do you need?


1. Make a new MacOSX Install "USB-Thumb Drive"

---> You need a OSX Computer or VMware OSX or something with OSX for this Step!

---> You need a "Clean Vanilla OSX Install Drive"!!!!

---> Do not use unifail, or something else! Make it with DiskMakerX or CommandLine!

---> After you successful created your OSX Install Drive, Download Clover!

---> Install Clover to your "OSX Install Drive"!

-------> Change Destination --> OSX Install Drive!

-------> Customize > Tick only:

----------> "Install for UEFI booting only" / Drivers64UEFI > "EmuvariableUEFI-64" & "OsxAptioFixDrv-64"

----------> Select only this and nothing else! Click Install!

------> Now there should be a new Drive, called "EFI". Open it!

------> Download this Files:

------> NullEthernet, ACPIBatteryManager, FakeSMC, ACPIBacklight, GenericUSB3,

------> EAPDFix, AsusNBFnKeysApplePS2ElanTouchpad, AppleHDA, HFSPlusDSDT.aml

------> Put all that files in a Folder, you need them Later again!

------> Now open again your "EFI" Partition on your "OSX Thumb Drive"

------> Put this files: NullEthernet, ACPIBatteryManager, FakeSMC, ACPIBacklight, GenericUSB3,

------> EAPDFix, AsusNBFnKeys, ApplePS2ElanTouchpad

------> Into: /EFI/CLOVER/kexts (All the files are .kext files)

------> Put DSDT.aml into: /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched

------> Put HFSPlus.efi into: /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI

------> Delete VboxHFS.efi from: /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI

------> Download Config.plist and put it to: /EFI/CLOVER



2. You are ready to Install! Start the computer, go in BIOS Settings,

---> Load default settings!

---> VT-d ---> Disable it!

---> Add a new Entry for CLOVERX64.Efi (From the OSX Install Thumb Drive)

---> Change your RAID to AHCI! (OSX doesn't Support intel Raid)

---> Disable "Secure Boot" or Just delete the KEYs!


3. Now Start your OSX Install... Don't need to explain this Step :-)

----> If you get a reboot, and OSX Install doesn't start, you have 2 Solutions:

----> 1. You need to patch the Kernel on the OSX Install Drive (and Later on the installed OSX)

----> 2. You can patch you BIOS with PMpatch! (You can destroy your Laptop!)

----> Solution 1 is Safe, but you need to do this after every OSX Update...

----> Solution 2 is forever, you need to patch this only on BIOS Updates...


4. Now you have Installed OSX! Go & Buy a USB-Wifi Dongle, or use the Lan-Adapter included!

----> Now you need to download Clover again. Install it now on your HDD, click Customize:

----------> "Install for UEFI booting only" / Drivers64UEFI > "EmuvariableUEFI-64" & "OsxAptioFixDrv-64"

----------> "Install RC Scripts for Selected Partition"

----------> Select only this and nothing else! Click Install!

----> Now download Kext Utility and install with Kext Utility only this kexts:

------> NullEthernetACPIBatteryManagerACPIBacklightGenericUSB3,

------> EAPDFixAsusNBFnKeysApplePS2ElanTouchpadAppleHDA

----> Download FakeSMC from Sourceforge, install it (Customize -> Check if everything is ticked)

----> Put the HFSPlus to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI (And Delete VboxHFS.efi in that folder)

----> Download ssdtPrGen.sh run it in Terminal:

--------> "sudo chmod +x ./ssdtPrGen.sh" and "sudo ./ssdtPrGen.sh"

--------> now you have on your Desktop a file called "ssdt_pr.aml" (You need only this file)

--------> Rename ssdt_pr.aml to SSDT.aml!

----> Put DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched

----> Customize your Config.plist or leave it how it is and put it to:

--------> /EFI/CLOVER


5. You are Ready! You can Reboot and Enjoy your new Mac :-)

----> Read how to Customize everything...

----> ApplePS2ElanTouchpad, AsusNBFnKeys (Have much options...)

----> Clover have much options you can change with config.plist...

----> Search yourself, how to optimize some things :-)

Updated and Completed GUIDE!


PS: Im searching anyone, who can help me with the new Experimental DSDT!

The Goal is:

---> to get sleep & wake working!

---> Patch Battery, that we don't need any Kext for this! (Vanilla)

---> Add a working "HDAU" "HDEF" section, that we don't need HDAenabler for HDMI & Displayport Audio!

--------> Without HDAenabler, i get only Laptop Audio Working, but not HDMI/DP Audio! With HDAenabler, all is working!

Battery, HDAU, HDEF, is fixed now!


Thank everyone, who can help me! :-)


Cheers :-)

Hello Ramalama, I was referred here by EMlyDinEsH. He said that you might be able to help me with my DSDT. I have an Asus Ux302LA, which has very similar specifications to your UX301LA. The only issue is that when I use your DSDT, it will not allow my system to load. I would like to apply the display/key backlight brightness patches to my DSDT, but it contains 13 errors. I extracted my DSDT using DSDTfixer, extracts from ioreg.
Currently, I am using DinEsH's brightnessfix v.1.1, and the script runs, but it sometimes does not work because it makes the screen turn a bright black. Here is what I have working:
Audio: VoodooHDA
HDMI/DisplayPort Audio: Probably working (don't care to try)
USB: Working OTB (no issues)
Touchpad: Working with: ElanTouchpad
Graphics: Not working (needs DSDT patch, currently overriding display 1080p)
Sleep: Working
Backlight Keys: Not working
Backlight Display: Semi-working with Brightnessfix v1.1 script (needs DSDT)
Battery: Working with: ACPIBattery with some issues
SD Reader: Probably working (don't care to try)
HD WebCam: Working OTB (but doesn't turns off after you used it)
Touchscreen: Not working
KeyboardFN Keys: Not working
HiDPI: Not working (unsure)
Wifi: Edimax USB

Bluetooth: Unsure
I would appreciate your help with my DSDT issues, thanks. I attached my DSDT, system log, and ioreg. Also I am running mavericks 10.9.0

Hi :-) Are you from Germany?


I Already asked you in another thread :-) I have no problems to support the UX302LA :-)


Okay, 1. Update you BIOS to the newest version, thats 207 atm.

2. Extract with clover all your tables, and send it to me :-)


And 3. My DSDT for ux301, will not work for you! Because our graphics! i have a Intel Iris5100 and you have a Intel 4400+Nvidia 730.


4. i need to know if you are using i7-4500U or i5-4200U CPU.


Cheers :-)

Aah, okay, sry...


i read the another thread now :-) So you don't have any nvidia card in your UX302LA? Strange :-)

But it will be easier and faster for me xD


You can access the clover partition if you use this command in terminal:

sudo mkdir /Volumes/Efi
sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/Efi
sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/Efi

After you mounted clover partition, go into it, "EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin" (delete here everything) the origin folder should be empty...


now if you are in the clover screen, hit the Key F4

  • save original (OEM) ACPI tables by pressing F4

Boot OSX Again, mount your clover partition again, with the commands above....


go into "EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin"


pack everything in this folder to zip, or pack this origin folder to zip and upload it to me :-)


This all will be going faster if you pm me your Skype name or something, where i can chat with you and we can fix all things together...


And update your bios before to the newest version :-) if its not already :-)


Cheers :-)
