About This File
EXTREMELY AWESOME FILE. Had 10.6.4 working on my laptop with everything going right....decide to update to 10.6.6 ans get hit with my wireless card not being recognized/not being recognized properly. I'm very well versed with hackintosh systems, and this had me stumped. First the card wasn't recognized properly at all by the system settings and would not show my card under the network settings menu. Got it recognized by installing another broadcom wireless hacked kext for IO80211Family, but it would not "turn on" and just stayed off in the settings, and even the terminal commands were seen as being successful and recognized the card, but it still would not turn on. Que this fucking amazing file...it seems that after 10.6.4, something doesn't initialize on normal boot to flip the software "on switch" for the broadcom cards, mine specifically was a BCM4312. This file does just that, and after countless hours, and forums posts with lots of people having this problem I discovered this file and it needs more widespread coverage. I ONLY tested on a BCM4312 in a Dell Inspiron 1545, BUT I'm pretty confident this will work for anyone else seeing these problems listed. If you have exhausted all other methods, and know your card to have worked previously in Snow Leopard TRY THIS! Please, if you try it on other cards that won't "turn on" properly PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post in the comments, it'll take 2 seconds to put your card type and model and will save a lot of people time and I'll re-post elsewhere....thanks and happy hacking.
