  1. !!! NOTICE !!! When dual-booting with Windows and Linux you might need to shut down entirely before booting the other OS, or wifi/bluetooth might not work.!!! NOTICE !!! Credits: Leon Bollerup as Team leader, owner of the first card and testing Bronxteck for bluetooth patching Mick for help with Wifi kext Dinesh for working on the bluetooth firmware uploader Uniwifi for providing the AC cards at a good price Toleda from Tmac - Check this thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/292542-airport-pcie-half-mini/ Sponsors: Leon Bollerup, 50$ Raistlin5, 20$ chinglung hwang, 10$ moonman, 20$ Ruben Penas, 10$ Gary Goodvin, 10$ Sonam Nyangpo, 10$ Iordan Iordanov, 20$ If you want to support this project, then please donate to [email protected] - all donations are anonymous unless you ask to be mentioned here - your donation will help solve the last problems and make sure that we have a unique and good combo card solution for everyone to benefit from. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. We are happy to announce (as the first hackintosh site?) a new Combo card solution based on Broadcom - this card not only brings AC standards but also Bluetooth 4.0 to our machines. This Half-size mini-pci is based on BCM4352 Running on Mountain Lion and Mavericks Read more here: http://img.onant.com/201304/detail.php?id=aigale-bcm4352 Uniwifi who is presently one of the few people selling this card is working on a good price for our members - until then you can contact him on [email protected] Traffic stats (Using windows 8.1 and a latest gen Time Capsule - OSX coming soon) .. testing on my home internet connection (100mbit from Risknet) Installation method: For bluetooth, use the kext from this thread: Bluetooth Kext For WiFi, you need to patch dsdt (or) kext. You can also use the attached patched kexts for WiFi but its recommended to use either dsdt/kext patch in future. Patching DSDT: Needed: DSDT Editor IORegistryExploere For this, you need to find where the wifi card is detected by Mac OSX which can be done by going through the ioregfile. First, look at the section "IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/[email protected]" in ioregfile and find the device starting with the name "RPXX". Next, find where the Wifi is detected by looking at the name "AirPort_xxx" (after installing patched wifi kexts from EDP/patching kext yourself). After locating the device "RPXX", add the method below to that Device in DSDT and compile it. Note:This is located at one of those Devices of the DSDT: RP01/RP02/RP03/RP04/RP05/RP06/RP07/RP08 (some notebooks might have this name differently, so find it from ioregfile with the above steps). DSDT Patch: Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x0C) { "AAPL,slot-name", Buffer (0x05) { "PCIe" }, "name", Buffer (0x0D) { "pci14e4,43a0" }, "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0xA0, 0x43, 0x00, 0x00 }, "IOName", "pci14e4,43a0", "device_type", Buffer (0x11) { "Wi-Fi Controller" }, "model", Buffer (0x33) { "Broadcom BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter" } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } Patching Kext: For this, we need to inject our card's ids to the Apple WiFi Kext. You can use the attached script to patch (or) can manually patch using the below steps. Manual patch: You need to patch the kext "AirPortBrcm4360.kext" located at System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Plugins/". Copy the kext to Desktop and Open the file "Info.plist" using text editor located inside the kext we are patching and add the bolded line below to the section "IOKitPersonalities->IONameMatch" as shown below. IONameMatch pci14e4,43b1 pci14e4,43a0 After editing, save the file and install the kext. Fixing 5-ghz Thanks to Toleda who found that country of the card needs to be changed from XT to US wich then enables 5ghz. Solution: For terminal: sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x01\x58\x54|\x01\x58\x58|g' /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortBrcm4360.kext/Contents/MacOS/AirPortBrcm4360 sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/ This is offcourse also intergrated into EDP. Downloads Wifi kext for Mountain lion: BCM4352-60.wifi.kext for ML.zip (not patched for 5ghz) Wifi kext for Mavericks: BCM4360-52.wifi.kext for Mavericks.zip (not patched for 5ghz) For the latest Windows drivers, follow this link: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/driverdetails?driverid=W49DT Enjoy!
