About This File
Here are the files for the Fully working Asmedia USB 3.0 Controller (1042) in Mac OSX 10.7.3. I have tested this with my Notebook Asus K53SC. It can work in other Version of Mac OSX as well but I haven't checked, so give a try.
Everything works Sleep and shutdown but I haven't checked the performance with USB 3.0 devices since I don't have any USB3.0 devices but I'm sure it will work since the drivers are made for this chip itself.
For shutdown and Sleep to work, it needs a DSDT fix.
Here is the DSDT fix and steps for everyone who has Asmedia 1042 USB 3.0 Controller to try it.
1. First, find where your device is connected by looking at the IORegistry using IORegistryExplorer app.
Example:- Mine was connected to PCI0->RP04->PXSX
2. Add the Following method to PXSX
Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
Store (Package (0x0A)
"ASMedia XHCI Controller"
"ASMedia ASM1042 USB 3.0 xHCI Controller"
DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
3. Install the Kext attached and fix permissions
You can update your firmware to latest version using the File (Firmware_Upd) attached.
For me everything working in this and as well as before firmwaresl.
UPDATE: Added the New and Fixed Kexts for Both Lion and Mountain Lion.
Hope it helps.
