    Last update: 17 Sep 2017 UPDATE: 17 - 09 - 2017 Just wanted to clear few things about my commitments to community, and development on my projects which has been going slow due to my personal life as I have been hit really hard since an year, and I am trying to sort out personal things still. So decided to take timeout on my commitments to my projects and put my attention on personal life first. Don't expect any regular updates on this project and others projects of mine till end of this year 2017. It does not mean I will not be working, and it is just that I won't post any update or respond to you all unless I have something worth to share. I know many of you are disappointed with me and some of my choices/decisions for the last one year, but believe me I had no other option and good reason for that. So your patience will be rewarded properly once I have started releasing updates as I have big plans and willing to commit myself to long term development, and I apologize for not keeping up with promises so far. In case I fail to keep up like I promised above, then I will give up and release all of my work to others to continue. Hope you understand and support me with beta tests when I need them Thanks Hi everyone, This is a multitouch driver for ELAN, FocalTech and Synaptics touchpad for Mac OS X based on the documentations available and some ideas from VoodooPS2, ApplePS2 and Linux open source code. I have successfully accomplished everything so far and added many new features to take advantage the touchpad completely to make it close to Apple touchpad in every way. Also my driver is implemented with my own universal logic for all the features, so it can be adapted to all touchpads easily and I'm still improving these to achieve even better results. My driver supports every hardware version of ELAN touchpads except version 1 (which is too old and can't find in existing notebooks will support that if i get some testers), mostly all available FocalTech touchpads and Synaptics touchpads (still experimental) with firmware version v7.5+. NOTE: For Synaptics, it was developed based on my touchpad hardware i have, so support is limited to touchpad with firmware version 7.5+ only, but will try to improve support other hardwares also if users interested in my features and help me with beta testing. FOR BUG REPORTING: Please read the below threads which explain the features after installing the driver, so you can understand and learn how to use every feature. If anyone still have doubts/issues then PM me to get help from myself (or) post them in other thread about issues so others can help you. I will respond to you mostly during weekends only for some time. FEATURES DETAILS: (UPDATED FOR v4.6) Touchpad features: Click here to learn Keyboard features: Click here to learn Supports OS X version 10.6 or later (10.6 support is only from v4.4) For Prefpane, try to install the version from this link, and add the prefpane to start up items: http://www.hackintosh.zone/file/997-correct-preference-pane-trackpad-macos-sierra/ UPDATE: 06-06-17 Hi everyone, It has been long time since I have given you all an update on my development. The reason for this was I had a pretty rough personal life and busy time in my job last few months, so I was really under big stress and had busy days which did not allow me to do any progress on my projects. Good news is that I was able to sort some of my issues, and find some time to continue my projects again. I have already done some analysis on my project, and figured that I had to do some major code rewrite (most of the code was depending around work arounds which are not optimized well for the time being back then) in order to better support future hardwares and also improve features with ease. My plan is Setup a way to support and track bugs from users Setup a way to gather feedback from users Re-build the project from the scratch with good design for cross-platform support in mind, to support multiple touchpad vendors and interfaces (thinking about I2C) as universal driver Refactor the project code with as much clean code (so when I make it open others can understand) as possible of mine from the scratch Finish basic features (Keyboard and Mouse emulation) Integrate basic vendor specific features Develop and Integrate basic prefpane of mine Release first beta to test Integrate and implement my old driver features one by one for better stability Update prefpane for new features and release another beta Update and improve support for newer hardware based on linux and other sources Finish integrating all the features of old driver by reviewing each one with community feedback Add new features and improve it's stability and performance I have big list of TODO's, but I promise this time that I will try to finish each of them as soon as possible with a beta release happening very soon before the end of this month in best case. Understand your patience is really needed here, as I do not want to rush and have limited time of mine. Also, I am gonna give weekly update on my progress if possible when I have finished my milestones. I will try to respond to your PM during weekends, and if you want to be beta tester then send me your skype ids with GMT time via PM. One more thing, current version of my driver is deprecated and so will not be continuing this. But, I will try to give you some support if there is a need before I finish my new version of driver for any issues which are not big enough for time being. Thanks for your support and co-operation. PS: Sorry for those who want my project to be open sourced now, as I cannot do that until I finish above TODO's. Hope you understand, and support me as I really worked hard on this project. I have worries to get this open right now, and understand that with more people development can progress faster but opening this right now might create issues and end myself supporting to the development in the long run due to fragmentation. I would request you to go through plist editing for controlling the features (as I have a lot of them and its important users to know about those details, because it will allow the driver to be tweaked as you want and my default values are not going to be best for every touchpad or user) for now (will make my own prefpane very soon within 3 months, and its a promise). Going to update my thread which details the features every week one after another for keeping it updated with latest version. Version v4.7 beta 5 (10 - 12 - 2016) (work in progress, available to try from attachments). Added back feature multi finger drag due to users request (can be dragged using 1-3f, Note: This drag wont be as smooth as 1f because the data is not as good as 1f in 2-3f which is why I stopped working on this long time ago, but currently it works nicely and usable in my touchpad. So its usage varies to each touchpad). You have to hold fingers for 2-3 sec at fixed position and move to trigger drag. Improved support for Sierra Support for new style prefpane (most of the features wont control my feature, but I will fix them by next weekend to match them) [Drag, scroll, double click speed can be controlled inside Accessibility Settings->Mouse & Trackpad] [Experimental] USB mouse can now stop trackpad if you enable Accessibility setting of Ignore Trackpad [Works only in 10.10 or lower (?). Will find a way for new OS X versions asp] Improved scroll inertia with more control options in Plist to choose Fixed Sierra Caps Lock bug using a workaround Fixed a bug with some new ELAN touchpads which have issues with virtual buttons acting weird if pointing was enabled at button area, so added option to diable/enable this in plist Fixed sierra OS X functions like Launchpad, Dashboard, Mission control etc., which are not working by redirecting to new keyboard shortcuts. (Needs to be configured at Keyboard shortcuts) Updated support for Asus keyboard backlight with two levels Several minor bug fixes and improvements And more to come as am still looking at improving others things that are buggy and also using feedback from users Version v4.6.5 Released Major code optimizations Updated support for 10.12 (Still some Fn keys wont work, will try to fix close to release) Added plist options to control Apple Trackpad prefpane values for 10.12 Several bug fixes and improvements Version v4.6 Fixed CapsLock key change plist option Fixed a firmware bug in ELAN v3 hardware Updated driver to accept new revisions of ELAN Touchpad to be recognized as Version 4 Added plist option to disable the touchpad when LID id closed (Enable back auto when its opened)) which will stop strange behavior from touchpad when using HDMI in some systems. Pointer acceleration enhancements (new plist options to control) Partial support for the extra buttons and track point from Synaptics trackpad Improved support for synaptics Updated documentation for features Several minor bug fixes and optimizations Version v4.5 Added new plist option to control touchpad edges dead zone Added plist option to change 2f and 3f tap default actions Added option to tweak pointing acceleration Added 4f pinch gesture and plist option (ELAN and Focaltech) Updated plist options to better organize Improved 2f dragging in clickpads Improved edge swipes Fixed synaptic touchpad sleep issue seen in some systems Fixed some keyboard bugs Several improvements, minor bug fixes and optimizations Version v4.4.5 : Improved support for Synaptics touchpads (Clickpad working fine now) Updated support for new ELAN touchpads Improved edge swipes Fixed a bug with Karabiner app to allow mapping Several bug fixes and optimizations Version v4.4 : Released (For Asus keyboard backlight auto off, use updated DSDT patch and v2.5 Fn keys kext) Improved support for Synaptics touchpad (Clickpad still have some issues so i need beta testers) Improved support for some new ELAN and Focaltech touchpads Improved pointer acceleration Reworked scrolling Improved Swipes, Zoom and Rotations Added more plist options to tweak the gestures and option to control delay after sleep Added GIGABYTE Fn key mode layout Added support for 10.6 (32bit build) Fixed several bugs in both keyboard and Touchpad Optimizations Version v4.3 : Added support for Synaptics touchpads (Firmware v7.5+) found in new laptops but still its experimental for others as it has not been tested on many laptops. (Tested only on Lenovo Z50-70 and G400) Added support for unsupported touchpads to work in enhanced mouse mode without multi touch Improved support for Focaltech and ELAN touchpad (especially ELAN v2) Improved pointing and scroll with new smoothing features and other improvements which can be controlled in plist Improvements and optimizations for all features Added plist option for keyboard to make Num Lock into clear instead of soft controlled num lock mode Added Fn keys mode layout for Lenovo Added support for ACPI brightness controls from EC calls (You have to use DSDT patch) Fixed many bugs For the complete change log of all the updates follow this thread: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1966-elan-touchpad-driver-issues/ FEATURES OF ELAN v4 HARDWARE, FOCALTECH and SYNAPTICS: (Supports up to five fingers touch) Mouse mode with Virtual Buttons Left, Right and Middle Tapping - Up to 5 fingers Clicking - Up to 5 fingers Dragging : Tap to release and Finger Lift ⃠Left Button Drag, Double Tap Drag, Single Tap Drag and Click Drag Corner Tapping Scrolling - Single finger Edge and Two Fingers swipe Continuous, Linear, Sling and Inertial scroll effects Finger Press - Up to 5 fingers Swiping - Edge, Three and Four Fingers Zoom - Two fingers pinch zoom, OSX Zoom with Keyboard 4 (Elan, Focaltech) & 5 fingers Pinch gesture Rotations - Arc and Swipe Rotations Accidental Input/Palm check when typing Fn Keys Mode Features Toggle Full customization FEATURES OF ELAN v2 and v3 HARDWARE: (Supports up to three fingers touch) Mouse mode with Buttons Left, Right and Virtual Middle Tapping - Up to 3 fingers Dragging - Tap to release and Finger Lift ⃠Left Button Drag, Double Tap Drag and Single Tap Drag Corner Tapping Scrolling - Edge Scroll and Two Fingers Continuous, Linear, Sling, Circular and Inertial scroll effects Finger Press - Up to 3 fingers Swiping - Edge and Three Fingers Zoom - Two fingers pinch zoom, OSX Zoom with Keyboard Rotations - Arc, Circular and Swipe Rotations Accidental Input/Palm check when typing Fn Keys Mode Features Toggle Full customization HOW TO INSTALL: Remove any existing "ApplePS2Controller, VoodooPS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub, ApplePS2Keyboard and old Elan Touchpad" kexts if you have already installed from the HDD '/System/Library/Extensions ', '/Extra/Extensions', and '/System/Extensions/Library/myHack.kext/Contents/Plugins/' (if you used myHack USB installer for OSX). If you use USB installer to boot (used to install OSX), then you have to remove the above kexts from USB '/Extra/Extensions'. Install the Kexts (Recommended to use Kext utility for installing) inside the attached zip file using any kext installing methods (In clover, some systems may have problems with kext injection, so try to install them to System/Library/Extensions in that case). 
 ​ NOTE: From v3.3, there is only one kext as my driver in the attached zip file. For Support PM me or POST here . I may respond slowly sometimes due to busy life. NOTE: Please don't mirror my files at other places, let the people know about this thread for the latest version and support. NOTE: I've worked very hard on this driver (especially ELAN v2, 4 and Focaltech without hardware) and will try to continue support in future. I do the development everyday with some time dedicated to this and many other projects. But i need your support so i can get more time to spend on these projects for improvements. Also we maintain this website without ads for all of you and it costs a bit for us to host. IF POSSIBLE PLEASE MAKE A DONATION BY CLICKING BELOW PAYPAL DONATE BUTTON FOR ME Paypal: FOR WEBSITE DONATE HERE: http://www.osxlatitude.com/donate/ THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT I would like to thank following people for beta testing the driver and providing valuable feedback: Leon, Ramalxlama, Shin zon, Sherlocks, Dragon, Ðнтошка, Thomas benhamou,68x, Eli and many others. SOURCE: Project source code: https://github.com/E...Touchpad-Driver I am still doing some major work with beta testers to improve the features and stability, so I cannot update my git until its done, because it may allow others to modify and distribute their own version which can miss my changes and also worried about something else too which I do not want to mention here. I want to support this project for very long time and did spend hundreds of hours so far with testers (without hardware) and implemented many of the features myself from the scratch. So, I deserve and have rights to not to update my project source until I feel confident. The base of the Apple PS2 open sources I have used for my project are pretty much same which you find in the source from my above git link and rest of the changes from that are based on documentation and my own ideas. CREDITS: ELAN - Arjan Opmeer for ELAN linux documentation/source FocalTech - mgottschlag (github) for linux source Synaptics - Synaptics official documentation and linux source I would like to thank the VoodooPS2 team (Slice, King, rehabman and many others who contributed to the VoodooPS2) for ideas, Apple for their PS2 open sources which i've used as base for my driver and linux sources for the touchpad initialization and packet info.

    Beta1 installs in the exact same manner as High Sierra. The difference is that 10.14 requires Clover r4517 or higher to install successfully. https://github.com/Dids/clover-builder/releases So far, Ok on my Ivy Bridge/HD4000 Latitude E6230 with same EFI/bootpack as High Sierra 10.13 and Clover r4521. I made a quick and basic, not fully tuned, installation: Apple stated that Mojave will only support GPUs compatible with Metal so HD3000 and older 1st gen Intel HD graphics are effectively dropped (and there are no kexts for these). Support for Intel iGPUs now starts at Ivy Bridge HD4000. So, I won't be trying Mojave on my E6220 nor on my ancient D630 (support for nVidia Tesla architecture dropped too)... We'll see if this gets to evolve in the following beta versions but not much of a hope I guess. APFS conversion seems to be mandatory too. Despite my modification of the minstallconfig.xml file of the 1st reboot temporary installation in which I had set the ConvertToAPFS parameter to false, my target Mojave partition ended up converted! Not a problem in itself on my SSD (and APFS is reportedly Ok on mechanical HDD now) but that means a definitive goodbye to Chameleon/Enoch for the time being. Inescapable eventuality I guess...

    Heya! After a lot of playing around with ASUS acpi tables I have finally come up with a SSDT that will work nearly on all ASUS laptops (Haswell or above) for reading FAN RPM, CPU TEMP and also Custom Controlling FAN. I do not have hardware below Haswell so can't test. If someone get's it working using this SSDT on machines prior to haswell. Let me and others know. Background Info: The system FAN is generally controlled by the embedded controller (EC) but there are methods in ACPI that can let you read and control your system FAN. As you might know, ASUS machines are the best for hackintosh as they have the best written ACPI code. Like, if it was HP instead of ASUS you would have to acquire a mutex object. Write a value to the EC and then release the object. But in ASUS machines there is a method that takes arguments and does this job automatically. Still. There are multiple methods in our DSDT that allow us to read and control system FAN. For example to read FAN speed, there are two ways. If you observe, the FAN speed is at offset 0x93 of EC (Use RWEverything to find out) So, when we search for Offset 0x93 in the DSDT we get a result like this: Offset (0x93), TAH0, 16, // TAH0 stands for FAN1 TAH1, 16, // TAH1 stands for FAN2 (in case your laptop has 2 fans) TSTP, 16, // TSTP stores current fan value in some bytes Note: Instead of using RWEverything if you have a look at method TACH you can see that it stores the values in TAH0 and TAH1 depending upon the Args supplied. So, searching for TAH0 or TAH1 we can see that they are located at offset 0x93 So, now we can read the value from these registers in some units and then we will have to use some formula to convert that unit to RPM. In order to find that formula, if you have a look at Method TACH in dsdt, you will see: Method (TACH, 1, Serialized) { Name (_T_0, Zero) If (ECAV ()) { While (One) { _T_0 = Arg0 If ((_T_0 == Zero)) { Local0 = TAH0 Break } ElseIf ((_T_0 == One)) { Local0 = TAH1 Break } Else { Return (Ones) } Break } Local0 *= 0x02 If ((Local0 != Zero)) { Divide (0x0041CDB4, Local0, Local1, Local0) Return (Local0) } Else { Return (Ones) } } Else { Return (Ones) } } So, we know that we have to store the value from TAH0 or TAH1 (depends on Arg0) and then we have to multiply it by 2 and then we have to divide it by 0x0041CDB4 (4312500) to get the value in RPMs. Once we know that, we could write a simple ACPI code to return the value in RPMs like: // GRPM means get RPM Method (GRPM, 0) { // Store value in Local0 Local0 = \_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC0.TAH0 // If local0 is not equal to 0 If (Local0 != 0){ // Multiply by 2 Local0 = Local0 * 2 // Divide by 4312500 Divide (0x0041CDB4, Local0, Local1, Local0) } // Return the value Return (Local0) } As you can see this is very expensive method. But what we learned here is, If we execute method TACH with Arg0 as 0 (Zero) it will give us the speed in RPM of FAN 1. Similarly, if we use Arg0 as 1 (One) it will return the value in RPM for FAN 2 My laptop only has one FAN so, I can execute method TACH like, \SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC0.TACH(0) // Using Arg0 as Zero for FAN 1 And it will give me FANs RPM, so, instead of reading from EC and converting bits to RPM this is more preferable. Also, EC bytes may change while patching DSDT so it is a good idea to use dynamic methods so that a single SSDT could work for all machines. One such example is, If you use ACPIBatteryManager then you will have to convert 16bits registers to 8bits. And then, to use that "reading RPM from EC method you will have to create a new method to combine 2 8 bits registers to 1 16 bit like, // JEBR = Join 8 bit registers Method (JEBR, 2) { Return ((Arg0 | (Arg1 << 8))) // Arg0 and Arg1 will be 8Bit register 1 and 2 respectively (AH00, AH01) } Now moving to FAN control, If you have a look at method QMOD in DSDT: Method (QMOD, 1, NotSerialized) { If ((Arg0 == Zero)) { Return (Zero) // If arg0 is Zero. Terminate by returning 0 } If ((Arg0 == One)) { ^^PCI0.LPCB.EC0.ST98 (QFAN) // Hmm, ST98 is somewhat related to FAN control } If ((Arg0 == 0x02)) { ^^PCI0.LPCB.EC0.ST98 (0xFF) // Okay, ST98 again.. Something is interesting } Return (One) } Now, if you look at ST98 you can see: Method (ST98, 1, Serialized) { If (ECAV ()) // Checked if EC is available, will you write to it? { Acquire (MU4T, 0xFFFF) // Oh! So you are acquiring a mutex object CMD = 0xFF EDA1 = 0x98 EDA2 = Arg0 // Oh, so you did write Arg0 in EDA2 (Located in EC01 OperationRegion) ECAC () Release (MU4T) // Released it here, you did write something to the EC for sure Return (Zero) } Return (Ones) } Now, we can understand that, method QMOD (Quiet Mode?) Takes 1 argument that could be (0, 1 or 2). We can eliminate 0 as when we pass Arg0 as 0 it simply returns. Interesting are args 1 and 2 When using 1 it passes Arg0 to ST98 as QFAN's value (Hmm.. What is this QFAN) When using 2 it passes Arg0 to ST98 as 0xFF (255) (Oh wait! according to ACPI spec, 255 is max allowed FAN value.) Gotcha! We can use ST98 and pass it an arg ranging between 0x0 (0) to 0xFF (255) where 0 is for FAN off and 255 is for Max allowed or auto. But, why is there a QMOD method then? There might be some good reason for that. So, we will not invoke ST98 directly but will use the modus operandi of method QMOD Like, we will first store that max allowed FAN value in QFAN Then, we will invoke QMOD with Arg0 as 1 (One). Which will invoke ST98 for us hence, setting the max allowed speed for FAN. So, the ACPI code for this would be: Method (SETR, 0) { QFAN = 200 // Suppose we want to use max allowed value as 200 // Now we can call QMOD with Arg0 as 1 QMOD (1) } Now we know what to do. We now just need to write a method that can calculate the CPU temperature and then set FAN RPM accordingly. This is when you will use my SSDT-FAN How to implement: Requirements: FakeSMC kext along with sensors installed at /L/E or /S/L/E (DO NOT INJECT USING CLOVER) ACPIPoller.kext HWMonitor for monitoring CPU Temp and FANS My SSDT-FAN.aml Installation: Place SSDT-FAN.aml to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (If using sorted order make sure you add SSDT-FAN to it) Install ACPIPoller to /L/E or /S/L/E (not both and definitely do not inject using CLOVER) Configuration: You can set "Name (UCFC, One)" to "Name (UCFC, Zero)" in my SSDT-FAN in case you want to use default FAN control method as provided by your OEM. My SSDT will only provide FAN RPM reading and CPU Temp reading.Achievements: Default scaling that ASUS provided was from 2200RPM to 2900RPM (Fan spinning fast without use) I managed to bring scale it from 255RPM to 5026RPM (Fan turns off if temp Temp rarely goes above 53˚C (Went up to 68 earlier) Technicalities: As we know know how to implement custom fan control using various methods in our DSDT we can't really use them as is in real life scenarios as FAN will literally be dancing. You might have observed that temperature keeps fluctuating a few degrees every second while you are working on something. Moreover, we need an automated method that can read and set FAN RPM. So, my SSDT calculates average temperature and then also waits for 2 seconds (to handle fluctuation) before increasing the RPM and waits for 5 seconds (to let CPU cool) before lowering RPM. You can edit this timeout by editing "Name (FCTU, 2)" for FanControlTimeoutUp and "Name (FCTD, 5)" for FanControlTimeoutDown. Method to calculate average accredited to RehabMan as he wrote the code first. There is only one known way to calculate average in maths. LOL. If you want to know how it is implemented, read this code: Note: This code is a part of my single optimizer SSDT project for ASUS laptops (Means, I am working on a single SSDT that you could place in your CLOVER/ACPI/patched and will have everything working without patching DSDT. You can customize SSDT using Device ANKD (A Nick's Device) like you can configure this SSDT to use custom FAN control or not).

    Search for PW934, that should get you the same card. For the card you have which is DW1520 to work, you can change your SMBIOS to MBA5,1 or MBA5,2, but AirDrop might not work as it doesn't work for me.

In rare cases, binary patching may also be necessary. For some cards, DSDT Patching can be a suitable and permanent alternative to kext patching (no need to repatch a kext after OS X updates and upgrades or new installations). For instance, in the case of the Atheros AR5B95 card (chip AR9285 168c,2b), adding compatibility with a chip known to be supported OOB such as AR9380 168c,30 or AR9280 168,2a (as found in the vanilla Atheros40 kext) in a _DSM method for the identified DSDT device does the trick once and for all since it'll make the OS load the associated kext: Device (<YourDevice>) // Identified wireless device through IORegistryExplorer (usually: ARPT) { ... ... ... Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // Device Specific Method for the wireless card { Store (Package () { "model", Buffer (0x1E) { "Atheros AR5B95 b/g/n Wireless" }, "device_type", Buffer (0x08) { "AirPort" }, "built-in", Buffer (One) { 0x00 }, "name", Buffer (0x10) { "AirPort Extreme" }, "AAPL,slot-name", Buffer (0x09) { "Internal" }, "compatible", // Declares compatibility with a device Buffer (0x0B) { "pci168c,30" // PCI id of device supported OOB } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } ` In the same respect, in the case of the Broadcom BCM4322x cards (e.g.: chip BCM43225 14e4,4357), adding compatibility with a chip known to be supported OOB such as BCM94360 14e4,43ba or 14e4,43a0 (as found in the vanilla AirPortBrcm4360 kext) in a _DSM method for the identified DSDT device does the trick once and for all since it'll make the OS load the associated kext: Device (<YourDevice>) // Identified wireless device through IORegistryExplorer (usually: ARPT) { ... ... ...

For ML, revert to pre-10.8.4 airportd file to fix issue and apply following Terminal commands: sudo chmod 755 /usr/libexec/airportd sudo chown 0:0 /usr/libexec/airportd xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /usr/libexec/airportd Pre-ML10.8.4 airportd.zip 2 issues with 10.9: secured networks (eg: AES (& WEP?)) unsupported, only clear (& WEP?) networks. ML fix not successful, so no fix available yet. According to forum member javamocha2000, DW1390 and DW1505 both operate OOB under Mavericks with WPA2-PSK encryption. 3 Some BCM4311-based cards with PCI id 14e4-4311 and some Atheros AR9380-based cards are reported non-functional -> the affected devices are half-size mini PCIe models, full-size mini PCIe models being Ok. 4 AR946x (168c,34), AR9485 (168c,32) and AR9565 (168c,36) work to some degree (i.e. not 100%) with alternative (re-written) Atheros40 driver as posted at InsanelyMac by Chunnann. Further patching facility posted here. These cards are NOT recommended. 5 DW1520 (14e4,4353) is known to suffer from frequent and repeated wireless disconnections when plugged into mini PCIe-only slot and built-in Bluetooth is enabled. This may even lead to wireless turning off. This has been noticed on Dell Latitude E6x20 and E6x30. Wireless works Ok once built-in Bluetooth is disabled in BIOS or, as stated by wl_michael, if the card is fitted into combo PCIe/USB slot such as WWAN.

    Hello everyone, Little background information about firmware patch from linux: I've developed this kext to update the firmware needed for those Atheros AR3012 and Broadcom Bluetooth devices to work with all functionalities that hardware supposed to do. Also integrated support for the Atheros bluetooth AR3011 (from old kext by mac4mat) with some improvements/fixes in my kext to make a single solution for bluetooth. BUG REPORT (HAVE A PROBLEM?): Send me your system log file from /var/log, ioreg file saved using IORegistryExplorer app v2.1 and Sys info saved from the app System Information (found in Utilities) in File menu. To receive files from other bluetooth devices (like Mobiles), enable the option "Bluetooth Sharing" in System Preferences->Sharing. Want to know why you can't pair iPhone? Read here Your Combo card WiFi hardware is detected and working, but Bluetooth hardware was not detected in ioreg and not working ? Read this post (Credits: tomwho) Following are the Bluetooth cards supported by my kext: AR3011: Atheros AR5B195 Combo (AR9285 Wifi + AR3011 Bluetooth) Atheros AR5B197 Combo (AR9287 Wifi + AR3011 Bluetooth) Other Atheros AR3011 cards with ids list below AR3012: Atheros WB225 Combo (AR9485 Wifi(doesn't work) + AR3012 Bluetooth) Other Atheros AR3012 cards with ids list below Atheros AR3011 30 sec delay fix (or) after sleep issues patch: (Should be working in 10.9.1+) Enter the following two commands in terminal and reboot: sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x0F\x85\x07\x01|\x0F\x84\x07\x01|g' /System/Library/Extensions/IOBluetoothFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/ For Clover, add this to kext patches instead: Name: IOBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport Find: 0F850701 Replace: 0F840701 Comment: Fix Bluetooth 30 seconds delay patch Credits to TimeWalker for the patch idea.

Go to the section "IOKitPersonalities" and edit the entry which has your vendor and device id values. Atheros AR3011 and AR3012 BT: You can choose firmware from either linux (or) windows. (Linux firmware is recommended mostly) For Linux firmware, edit the plist entry "Use Linux fw" to Yes (or) true. ) For the Windows firmware, edit the plist entry "Use Linux fw" to No (or) false for both AR3011 & AR3012. For AR3011, you can also choose three firmwares from windows by editing the plist entry "Windows fw" to the values 0-2. Value '0' is the most recent firmware. [Note: Only Windows firmware 1 supports Fn key toggle for BT Off/on in Asus] Broadcom BT: Firmware to use: You can choose either firmware which is meant for that specific device (or) higher version available so far by editing the plist entry "DeviceSpecificFw" to Yes/No (or) true/false. You can abort (or) ignore subsequent firmware updates if the last update was failed by editing the plist entry "AbortOnFwUpdFail" to Yes/No (or) true/false. This is optional and its meant only in case if any system needed update process to continue even if last update was failed for success.(Available from v3.0.5) How to install: 1) Remove any patched kexts (or) Bluetooth enablers installed for Bluetooth and use Apple vanilla Bluetooth kext. 2) Install my kext (BTFirmwareUploader.kext) using your favorite kext installers to /System/Library/Extensions. (Don't install my kext through E/E (or) clover injection).

    Hello everyone, This is an ACPI driver to control the Fn Keys and ALS sensor found in Asus Notebooks, developed by me based on the ideas from linux asus wmi, hokoffy (insanelymac user) WMI controller source and my own research on ACPI and OS X API. Also I've introduced many new features with customizations along the way and improved several things. Some of the Fn keys require DSDT patches in order to work. The Fn keys which my driver controls are: Fn + F3 Does OS X function (Misson control/Dashboard)/Keyboard Backlight Down (If supports) F4 Does OS X function (Launchpad/Desktop)/ Keyboard Backlight Up (If supports) F5 Brightness Down F6 Brightness Up F7 Screen Backlight On/Off (Soft mode) F8 Video Mirror F9 Touchpad (only if you use my Smart Touchpad driver) F10 Mute F11 Volume Down F12 Volume Up C - Rewind V - Fast A - Toggles ALS Sensor on/off (If supports) Asus Instant Key - Does OS X function (Launchpad) (If supports) Space - Play/Pause Left Arrow - Previous Down Arrow - Play/Pause Right Arrow - Next Up Arrow - Toggles Media Functions Fast/Rewind and Prev/Next between C,V & Left, Right Arrows and Toggles OSX Functions for F3, F4 Toggles Finer and Normal Brightness, Volume control Supported Functions by F3, F4 and Asus Instant keys are: Edit the plist entries "F3KeyAction" and "F4KeyAction" with the below values to assign different functions 0 - Default Functions 1 - Launchpad 2 - Misson control 3 - Dashboard 4 - Desktop 5 - Application window 6 - Eject For Notebooks with compact Keyboard (without Numpad): Fn + C - Previous V - Next Space - Play/Pause CONFIG DEFAULT PREFERENCES: Edit the file "info.plist" file located inside my kext "AsusNBFnKeys.kext/Contents/" Look for the secton "IOKitPersonalities->AsusNBFnKeys->Preferences" to change Fn key controls HasMediaFnKeys - Notebook has multi media fn keys Play/Pause, Next, Previous? SoftDisplayBacklightOff - Enable backlight on/off in soft mode? Useful it native backlight control is not working. DimBacklightOnAC/DC - Enable brightness pop up on AC/DC to notify? Useful for AC/DC status. MediaKeysDoFastRewind - Enable Media keys should do fast/rewind instead next/previous? FingerBrighntessControl - Enable finer brightness control which provides more steps? FinerVolumeControl - Enable finer volume control which provides more steps? DimBrightnessByLevels - 0 - 15, Default value is 3. KBackLightlvlAtBoot - 0-3 / 0-15 F3KeyFunction - 0 - 6 F4KeyFunction - 0 - 6 InstantKeyFunction - 0 - 6 IdleKBacklightAutoOff - Enable idle auto keyboard backlight off? IdleKBacklightAutoOffTimeout - Default 10000 ms, idle timeout value. Look for the secton "IOKitPersonalities->AsusNBFnKeys->Preferences->ConfigForALS" to change ALS sensor controls EnableALSLogs - Enable logging to see values it reports? DisableOnAC - Disable ALS on AC? DisableOnFnControl - Disable Auto backlight when Fn key used to manually control? EnableAtBoot - Enable ALS sensor at boot? SamplesToProcess - Number of samples used to control backlight in background. TimerInterval - Interval used for checking the ALS in background. LevelxBrightness - Brightness level for the level 'x'. There are 5 levels for x = 1 - 5. LevelxRangeStart - ALS range start value for the level 'x'. LevelxRangeEnd - ALS range end value for the level 'x'. Note: For some dsdt files, you need to replace "\_SB.ATKD.IANE (0xXX)" with "Notify (ATKD, 0xXX)". Use the attached patches in DSDT Editor app to patch your DSDT only if there is something not working. Must Needed patches: Brightness Fn keys patch: Modify the method _Q0E and _Q0F in DSDT for the ATKP conditional clause code: Method (_Q0E, 0, NotSerialized) { If (ATKP) { \_SB.ATKD.IANE (0x20) } } Method (_Q0F, 0, NotSerialized) { If (ATKP) { \_SB.ATKD.IANE (0x10) } } Keyboard backlight patch: Use the dsdt patch and config to plist from this link manually or attached patch file: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/5966-details-about-the-elan-touchpad-features/&do=findComment&comment=32299 ALS sensor patch: Use the dsdt patch attached. Supports: Mac OSX 10.7 or greater How to install: 1) Remove my kext from System (Optional). 2) Install my kext using your favorite kext installers.

    Hi Guys, (Esp Jake). I just wanted to share my deep and complete gratitude for this forum and the support offered on here. I did a random google search a few weeks ago for Hackintosh & Latitude and found these forums. I quickly and easily installed OSX HS on my Dell e7240 (yes initially a bit buggy but oh well) I noticed that the E7440 was almost the same laptop but with a better screen. Something that really bugged me about the e7240 was the screen size, Lack of Hard drive expansion, and it really sucked for Programming. So picked up a used e7440 of eBay and moved my SSD and extra ram from the 12 inch into the 15-inch machine. A few patches, bugs, checking with the forum and getting help here has left me with an ALMOST perfect Mac pro!!!! Sound, Keyboard (UK) Battery life multiple screens outputs with HDMI + Mini DP. All WOrk brilliantly! Just can't believe that a low-cost laptop of eBay is as powerful if not more powerful than a $2000 USD Mac pro! Its just so awesome, and I am so thankful for all the work you do here. Right now my machine has: i5, 1080p screen, 256gb SSD, 16GB Ram, 2TB Seagate HDD, and I have 2 extra batteries on the way too! And it triple boots macos (Works perfectly) Linux mint (Works Perfect) and Win 10, (Obvs, slow as a dog, but works perfectly) So thank you thank you thank you very much!

    @vinh1978, whenever you try something new suggested by some member and yet are unable to fix the problem then when you report back (after trying) you are expected to provide new problem reporting files (it is written clearly in FAQ thread for gen_debug). Why submit new files everytime you try changing something? Coz, if you change the files many other things also change and they help keep track of how close we are from fixing the problem. Without new files after change, it is like shooting in the darkness and hoping to hit the bull's eye. Hope you understand. Regards

    Sierra Guide See here for install guide, just replace with Sierra bootpack. E7x70_Sierra.zip - See Update files below Known Issue & Workaround: HDMI-Output works but if connect HDMI-Cable the local Display goes off and never recovers. I had tried different configurations but none panned out. Here's a workaround: Close the LID until you see the HDMI display becomes the primary display, then open the LID. It'll switch LCD as primary and HDMI as secondary. NOTE: Workaround is only needed on clean boot, no issue if system has gone through a sleep/wake cycle Post Install: Enable Brightness Control and Trackstick Scrolling Trackstick Scrolling Download and install Smartscroll for trackstick scrolling Touchpad - 2 fingers scrolling, 2 finger tab for right click, tap and drag Brightness Control Download and Install Karabiner-Elements Launch Karabiner-Elements Copy karabiner.json to ~/.config/Karabiner karabiner.json.zip or copy the settings according to diagram below Now use F11 & F12 for Brightness, use F1, F2, & F3 for Volumes Control
