Rebranded 4312 shows up in Sys-Profiler as "Intel Wireless 3945"


Recommended Posts

So I used the directions on the wiki and this is what I got... Any ideas?


It is the "Rebranding Broadcomm Wi-fi" process, that did it. You are lucky you did not brick it. The rebranding is a little bit tricky and you have to be very careful with the

"subv ID & subp ID" when you use this command "ssb-sprom -i ssb_sprom_copy –-subv 0×106b –-subp 0×0087 -o new_ssb_sprom_copy". It looks like after rebranding your BCM4312(?), it did not changed it to an Airport (should be the result). I have a BCM4311 a/b/g, so I have to use subp id as 0x004e. Use this link, it is better documented with screen captures: http://prasys.info/2009/12/rebranding-broadcom-802-11abgn-cards-as-airport/#more-2366


Here is my rebranding result. Rebranding success.tiff



Good luck.
