  1. If you follow the guide, multi touch does work. Asus g75vw has Intel graphics disabled by the manufacturer so that's moot point. I've never tested spdif out but in theory they should
  2. Finally got around to installing El Capitan on it. Got everything up and running like before. Just took some updated kexts, clover patches, and the usb fix (the FakePCIID_XHCIMux and USB rename dsdt patch). Updated the guide with the new stuff. On another note, I attempted the upgrade process with clover and it surprisingly worked...somewhat. There was some glitchiness with stuff like sound and graphics stuttering so I just washed my hands of it and did the old fashioned clean install which worked like a charm.
  3. I've never used the EDP myself but there are some modifications such as the dummyhda that isn't present in the edp bootpack. I'd follow the manual steps
  4. That's the same problem I ran into with clover which is why I ended up using chameleon. Then my laptop died before I got the chance to figure it out. But there is a device properties box in clover I think under boot or GUI or something like that along with a checkbox under it.
  5. In chameleons boot.plist file in E/E, create a new string called device-properties. Then open the hex file with textedit, then copy the contents of it to the device-properties in the boot.plist
  6. I haven't tried it yet but there's no reason why it shouldn't. Everything should be the same except the added clover steps to disable the new security features present in el capitan
  7. It depends. From what you're describing, your windows 8 install is not UEFI but legacy. Chameleon is the same. Clover on the other hand can boot UEFI or legacy depending on how you install it. So to answer your question, both. Chameleon is the tried and true boot loader and what I would recommend using if you're new to the whole osx86 scene. If you're more of an experienced osx86 user and/or consider yourself to be tech savvy, than I would recommend clover. Clover has far more options and is far more complex than chameleon as a result, but if you learn it, you can get a more vanilla
  8. No problem Updated guide for 10.10.4 (easiest update ever by the way, I literally just ran the update from the app store and did nothing else: most vanilla hackintosh update I've ever taken) Edit: Updated to 10.10.5, same process as 10.10.4
  9. You can extract them from Windows but the Linux method gets fewer errors in the long run. Learned that lesson the hard way. So yes, linux only
  10. Check out my guide here for an AppleHDA audio solution, backlight control, and TRIM support: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8102-gigabyte-p35w-v2/ My battery patch may work for your laptop too. You just want to use Rehabman's ACPIBattery, rolling back AppleACPIPlatform and such is not good or power management and such. Also, for your dsdt and ssdts, you need to extract them from linux like I did in my guide or you'll get all sorts of weird errors.
  11. Special Thanks: Rehabman for helping me troubleshoot the various issues I had and helping me work them out EmlyDinesh for adding a custom fix to his ApplePS2SmartTouchpad kext for the brightness keys to work properly All developers who engineered the various tools/kexts/patches/etc to get this working Specifications: Processor : Intel Core i7-4710HQ Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz) Graphics Processor (GPU) : Intel HD Graphics 4600 and Nvidia 860m 4gb Chipset : Intel HM87 Express Chipset Hard disk : Crucial MX200 256gb mSata SSD RAM : 16GB DDR3L 1600 MHz SDRAM Wifi : Intel Dual Ban
  12. Works with the Gigabyte P35w v2 with keyboard on PS2X with _Q28 as brightness down and _Q30 as brightness up
  13. If you have synaptics trackpad, usr voodoops2 instead: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-voodoo-ps2-controller/downloads
  14. Hi Emly, I have the Gigabyte p35w v2 laptop with elan touched. Touchpad works great and keyboard too except one issue: both the down and up screen brightness key acts the same by lowering the screen brightness. In other words, the up key does the down action too. After much troubleshooting here: http://goo.gl/MfR2U1 Rehabman deciphered that the issue was that both ps2 F14 and Acpi signals were being sent by the keyboard and in order to get it to work properly, we had to make a dsdt patch for the two keys: into method label _Q28 replace_content begin // Brightness Down\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.
  15. Yup. Any change to the internals of the kext requires it to be reinstalled/kext cache repaired
  16. Did you read the documentation here: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/5969-details-about-the-enhanced-keyboard-for-smart-touchpad-driver/ Try changing the fn mode to 3 and using ASUS vendor. Due to the complex nature of this kext and vast number of systems it supports, odds are it won't work without some adjustments for your system
  17. Everything is working fantastically except one thing: the fn key to increase screen brightness lowers it instead. The decrease screen brightness key works correctly though. It's not an issue with this kext but likely with my dsdt/ssdt as the same thing happened when I just used clover dsdt injections and rehab man's voodoops2 kext. How can I fix this? Thanks
  18. I'm not sure if this is an EAPD issue or not, but I have the realtek ALC 282 audio codec. I got everything patched and working with DummyHDA and Clover and I have EAPDFix installed though I'm not sure yet if it's needed. The issue is that when I boot up my laptop (and after I resume from sleep), the speakers don't work until after I play music or sound for 7 minutes or so (doesn't matter what device I'm playing it through whether it's bluetooth or headphones). However, the headphones do. My laptop has two separate speaker nodes: front speakers and subwoofer. Only the front speakers ar
  19. So I have a via1802 codec that even though it refused to completely work with AppleHDA, I got it working fully with VoodooHDA. When I put my laptop to sleep for a short time, upon wake, sound works fine. But when I put it to sleep for a long time, the sound doesn't work upon wake. I've tried this kext but it says in the console: com.apple.kextd[20]: /System/Library/Extensions/EAPDFix.kext - no dependency found for com.apple.driver.AppleHDAController. I'm assuming that this depends on AppleHDA and it's plugins being present? Is there a way to use this without AppleHDA? I removed Appl

    Asus G75VW

    After solving a black screen issue (GraphicsEnabler doesn't appear to work properly in yosemite), I got yosemite installed. Updated the guide. For this laptop: mountain lion and yosemite work great, mavericks sucks. I'm sure many other users will draw the same conclusions for their computers

    dsdt patches updated with keyboard backlight sleep fix
  22. Hey Emly, everything with this driver works great except an issue I hadn't noticed before was pointed out to me. After wake up from sleep, the keyboard backlight shuts off and doesn't turn on again (fn keys do nothing). The console says nothing concerning the kext except except says this when I adjust the screen brightness with the fn keys (which works fine with efi string): 9/24/14 3:18:31.000 PM kernel[0]: AsusNBFnKeys: GPU device not found
  23. Like herve said no-one has been able to get the 660m working on osx. Its a bios issue
