ASUS A555LA: fine tuning


Recommended Posts

Hello people,


I have almost managed to turn my ASUS A555LA laptop into a perfect MacBook. (Yeah, guide will be available on this forum in a couple of days)


The stuffs not working as of now are:-


1. VGA Port (Haswell IGPU doesn't support it. So, ignored)

2. Atheros AR9565 Bluetooth (In fact, it is a combo WIFI+BT card)


So, here is a brief synopsis. The Bluetooth was working when I freshly installed OS X and also installed BTFirmwareUploader to SLE.


It was working fine until I don't know what happened. Maybe I applied some PNLF patches to DSDT?


I removed those patches and yet it was not working. 


Things I have tried:-

1. Simulating version of Windows by _OSI edits in ACPI tables. (Tried 2001, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015 and Linux)

2. Reinstalling BTFirmwareUploader.

3. Updating kext caches.


ACPI hotpatches I'm using:- (Please tell is one of them interferes with Bluetooth)

1. Change EHC1 to EH01

2. Change EHC2 to EH02

3. Change _OSI to XOSI

4. Change HECI to IMEI

5. Change SAT0 to SATA


I am attaching my IOREG and ACPI tables down below. Please assist me.
