  1. 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.

  2. Hello. I prepared my installer according to the guide, but when I go to boot to the installer, it shows the Apple logo for maybe 1/2 a second. Does anybody know what could fix this? I am trying to install macOS Sierra
  3. Hi. I just got macOS Sierra installed on my Dell Lat. e7450. WiFi isn't working yet, but I have the 1830 card on it's way. When I went into FaceTime to sign in, I put in my info then got a notification saying I can't sign in on this mac and I needed to contact apple. Of course, as Apple would not support me in my hackintosh needs, I turned to this forum. Any suggestions on how to fix iMessage and FaceTime? All help is greatly appreciated!
  4. Hello, first of all I'm sorry if this kind of thread is not allowed but I'd like to keep a thread of discussion about El Capitan install on the Dell Latitude E6500. If it's not allowed, please lock/delete this thread. OK, let's get to the point. I have managed to boot the installer just fine, however I am not able to proceed with the installer as the installer only shows "Reinstall OS X" and not "Install OS X". As such, this has caused me to not be able to install the OS due to some "eligibility checking" mechanism. I never had this issue when installing Yosemite months ago. Has anyone ran into this problem? How do I fix this? Is it related to the installer that I used or did I do something wrong while making the installer? Thanks a lot and if you have any tips and pointers or anything to discuss about El Capitan for the E6500 please do so here. --- From here on, I will update my progress in this section. 20170319 1950 -- Installer now shows "Install OS X" instead of "Reinstall OS X" after following another guide to setup the USB installer. I will now proceed to with the installation. 20170319 2013 -- Still at "a second remaining". 20170319 2131 -- Finished with everything, including bootloader installation. El Capitan is buttery smooth. It's amazing.

    Dell E6330

    Hi all, I am trying to turn a dell E6330 into a hackintosh for my wife to work with. I attempted myHack with snow leopard, and when booting from the usb device the screen displayed, "selected boot device failed, push any key to reboot pc." I would really appreciate any help. I have: A .dmg of OS X 10.11.6? the newest one, I downloaded it from the app store today. (6/17/2016) A macbook pro loaned from a friend running OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan A retail DVD of Snow Leopard A retail DVD of Leopard Mulitple flash drives with ample storage A windows 8 OS to work with A ubuntu 16.04 OS to work with Specs and info of this E6330: Current OS: Windows 8.1 BIOS : A15 (unlocked) Processor: i7 3520M Ram: 8gB Video: Intel HD Graphics 4000 SSD: 256 gB Has DVD Optical Drive Legacy boot mode is enabled AHCI enabled secure boot disabled Any other info required I will gladly supply. I am grateful for all support offered. Thank you, Sky
  6. How could I install Clover on a HDD or SSD via legacy mode without the installer (the manual way)? Is that possible? I have an EFI folder already.
  7. So I have OS X Yosemite fully installed with clover but is it possible to boot windows with it, or shall I just use VMware fusion. Another question is that is it possible to boot straight into os x without it showing me the clover gui (I mean with clover installed but without having to show me the clover page when I switch on os x) Also my clover GUI is weird first time I installed it, it had a Yosemite background with square tiles. now it just has a blue background with disk like looking options. Another thing is because I am on Yosemite, can I update it to elcaptin My Laptop: Dell Latitude E5440
  8. Hi guys! This time i decided to install OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite on my desktop, which is a Intel Xeon E3-1245V3 with 16GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Pro, and a GTX 970 Gigabyte (non G1 version) with windows 8.1 on SSD and a spare old SATA 2 magentic drive for the Yosemite install, So i followed the instructions, and the install went smoothly! No problems at all! But after words and its done, and it restarts, i remove the USB and when it comes back it loads up the Hackintosh Zone Screen with the axe going into the apple, and it has a progress bar, but it doesnt ever seem to move, or go anywhere past that, so i did a -v and it stopped at PCI begin, so i assume thats where the error is? ive tried npci=0x2000/3000 and PCIRootUID=1 and -f/F and a bunch of others, but im up to suggestions so ill try anything to really to get this thing to work. I dont know what else to try, because it shouldnt have any problems all my parts are less than a year old, and they are all compatabile with OS X. If you guys have any suggestions im open to hearing them! I dont know who else out there has this problem but i would love to know how they fixed it if they did. All comments are welcome! Thanks Guys!
  9. Hi there! I've got myself Mavericks running on my E4310, and it run quite flawless. I think i've got CI working (i have transparent menu bar, working dvd player, i can see screen saver). I'm running 10.9 Niresh, I know that QE is not possible since I'm using eDP connector but I want to make my hackintosh the best as it can be. So I have working sound, trackpad, trackpoint, screen resolution 1366x768x32, 64mb video card memory. When i'm going to launchpad and I want to open a folder or go to next page it shutter, is that because of lack of QE ? or maybe I don't have CI working ? I need Os X only for GarageBand, sometimes Internet (youtube, facebook and I know i need to buy wifi usb card), I would be glad if i could get my bluetooth usb stick working with bluetooth audio reciever. And one i think stupid question... i've bought docking station on expresscard (was cheap i'm gonna sell it anyway) and it has it own video processor ? video card ? or whatever, it's gonna help with qe/ci ? EC counts as LVDP or EDP ar just EC ? (ofc i'm talking about using external monitor on docking station not just connecting it to laptop...) and something for geeks: you can install 10.9 Niresh distro easily, take 8gb usb stick, install transmac on windows and recover an image from Niresh. Set your BIOS, boot up, if you reach screen with mouse pointer wait few minutes and you get installation window, before instal choose to backup Intel HD Graphics kexts, after install boot up and now you need mouse on usb and additional kexts for touchapd and trackpoint (search on forum for extras.zip for e4310). Voila yes ofcourse, you can update to 10.9.x but at the 10.9.3 i got problems with permissions on the disk. But repairing them helped. yes you can install Yosemite form Niresh but don't, it's enough that i've tried - yes i'll boot up, yes you won't get your touchpad and trackpoint working, no CI is not longer support in Yosemite, and yes you get whole 3MB of video card memory ! ... I almost forgott, whole OS gonna be so slowly that it can cause pain, not normal good old pain... an ASSPAIN ! so yea don't install yosemite on e4310. my english is as it is, you should understand everything so i've made my point if you don't understand something or if you are not sure about something - ASK, i will explain you
  10. Hey guys, Recently I've got problem with my Mavericks 10.9 - it seems that I can't change brightness with controls Fn + Home/End, neither with System Preferences. I can change brightness of my screen only during boot. Any ideas to solve this problem? Thanks
  11. I have a Dell Latitude D630 with NVidia graphics. It has a Core 2 Duo and NVidia Quadro NVS 135m. I followed the guide on this site. I created the flash drive with myHack. I installed the extra folder on the flash drive. I booted the flash drive on my Dell. Installed OS X Mavericks. At the end of the install it asked for the extra folder, I chose the extra folder from the flash drive. I boot into the Mavericks on my HDD. I set every thing up. Everything works fine up to this point. Here's when it goes bad: I install EDP and choose my model then click build. I downloads everything. Installs everything. I reboot. after the bios it shows the boot loader. It tries to boot into the Mac HDD and it can't. It say boot error. It can't get passed the boot loader. I tried two different HDD's they both give me the same error. This worked fine with the old version of EDP. I started to give me problems with the new EDP. It works fine with Snow Leopard and Lion. I get this error with Maverick's and Mountain Lion. I never got this error with the old EDP. I wish they never changed it. What can I do?
  12. Apple released OS X 10.9.3 today. Its available in the Mac App Store, or available as a standalone and combo update. You can get the delta and combo update here: http://support.apple.com/downloads I haven't installed it yet, so I'm not 100% sure what is updated. Also included in the update is iTunes 11.2. Some features in the 10.9.3 update: Improves 4K display support on Mac Pro (Late 2013) and MacBook Pro with 15-inch Retina Display (Late 2013) Adds the ability to sync contacts and calendars between a Mac and iOS device using a USB connection Improves the reliability of VPN connections using IPsec Resolves an issue that prevented Font Book from installing PostScript Type 1 fonts Improves reliability of copying, editing and inspecting permissions of files on an SMB file server Improves reliability of network home directories Improves stability when installing configuration profiles Improves login speed for users in Active Directory groups Includes Safari 7.0.3
  13. OS X 10.7.3 is working well on Dell Inspiron 6400. Everything works except sleep. I could not test sleep as my power button is broken and I use the MediaDirect button to start my laptop. I have not used any DSDT or injection. I have not had a single KP so far. Please note that upgrading to 10.7.5 and above will break the OS, it will boot to a blank screen. if you patch the AppleIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext, it will panic as the patched version is not supported beyond 10.7.4. To get it to work on 10.7.4, you need to patch AppleACPIPlatform.kext with the one from Snow leopard 10.6.8 and also patch the AppleIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext. Since I was happy with the performance of 10.7.3, I decided to stay on this version. All the native OS X softwares like Aperture, iWork etc and third party softwares like Adobe products, office for Mac etc. run without any issue. My Inspiron 6400 configuration is as follows: Intel Core2Duo 7200 with 64bit support; Intel ICH7 family chipset optimized by Dell Onboard Intel 945GMA video driver with 64MB shared memory; (1680x1050 full resolution, QE/GL everything works including mirror) : patched with AppleIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext (version 4GB 667Mhz DDR2 RAM, RICOH R5C822 memory card reader (in-built), (works well with patched VooDooSDHC.kext) 2-port UBS 3.0 ASMedia 1042 Express Card in ExpressCard slot; (works with native AppleUSBHub.kext and patched CallDigitUSBxHCI.kext), CallDigitFastO.kext is optional but recommended) 500GB SATA HDD; Onboard Broadcom 440family ethernet; (works with AppleBCM400.kext) Broadcom BCM4322 mini-wifi card, (works Out of the Box, no need for any additional kexts) Sigma Tel Stac9200 onboard Audio Device : (Works with VooDooHDA (version used 2.7.2) Trumobile 350 bluetooth card : (Works OOB) Slot loading CDwriter/DVD ROM I will attach a list of kexts that I have used and also the Extra folder which includes my edited chameleon.plist and smbios.plist. For the patched kexts, you may need to patch with your Dev-id and Ven-id of your hardware. Prerequisite: You need to find a working OS X Snow Leopard machine to create a bootable USB stick of OS X Lion patched with AppleIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext from here. Any windows software like MacDrive to access OS X partiton from windows to edit the Extension folder after fist install. You will need to edit the info.plist of some of the kexts to insert the Ven-id and Dev-id of your hardware for full compatibility. I can post a full tutorial on request. I am multiboot (chameleon, stolen and rebranded)ing with Lion/Linux/Windows 8/Windows 7 and Windows XP from a single drive. Regards OS Lion on Inspiron 6400.zip

Wifi Trackpad with 2 finger scroll Keyboard Audio Fn keys Bluetooth Webcam What isn't working: Sleep Shutdown stays at black screen Keyboard Backlight Microphone Multiple monitors only work when connected before at boot time. Installation: Follow the unifail guide When it comes to booting the USB drive, use the kernel flag PCIRootUID=0 Let the installation complete and reboot from the USB drive again with PCIRootUID=0 Follow the setup until you reach the desktop. At this point open the terminal and type in the following without quotation marks: "defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE" "Killall Finder" Open your USB and pass the Extra folder to your Desktop, open that Extra folder and in the boot.plist edit PCIRootUID from 1 to 0. Then place this extra folder in the root directory of your partition. If you can't find it, go to the menu bar Finder->Preferences and select to check the checkbox that says "Hard Disks", this should put your partitions on your desktop. Unzip the Installation kit and run the chameleon installer. After the installation try boot from hard drive. If you fail, boot from the USB again with PCIRootUID=0 and recheck your steps. If you successfully booted back in to lion. Run the kext utility in the installation kit folder and drag the kexts from the installation kit on to the Kext Utility Window. I recommend Trying to install one by one if anything goes wrong. After this, reboot and you should have all the working stuff. Open the AppStore and install the update to 10.8.1, it shouldn't affect anything and you should reboot without an issue. TIP: The best way to do tests is to have 2 partitions and use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable backup. I'd appreciate if anyone else can help me with the what isn't working yet. UPDATE ON KEYBOARD BACKLIGHT: It turns out that if I boot in to Linux, restart and boot in to ML, backlight keyboard is working, however if I turn the backlight off I can't turn it on again except by repeating this process. 10.8.2 G73JW Kit.zip
