DISCLAIMER: Altering your DSDT is serious business and can cause physical & unrepairable damage to your machine! I am not responsible for any damage happens to your computer.

I have been using this DSDT from OSX 10.9 to OSX 10.9.5 updates were made directly from the App Store.


Everything except WIFI (here is a link https://github.com/toleda/wireless_half-mini for the wifi replacement).

DSDT patches

1- Intel HD 4400 injection

a simple _DSM injection, thanks to
for suggesting the proper igplatformid (0A260000).

2- sleep fix

thanks to
the laptop-dsdt-patches in his github, thanks to
for the required steps to patch for sleep. but it was not stable, and made a lot of CMOS RESET, and it took me (
) a lot of effort to finally make sleep working with zero CMOS Reset (very stable).

3- lid fix

lid will sleep and wake the system, all the credits to
cheating a little bit from MacbookAir6,2 DSDT.

4- brightness fix (ACPIBacklight.kext)

all credits to
using PNLF Haswell fix

5- battery fix (ACPIBatteryManager.kext)

all credits to
(it has a little problem in which few times battery remaining time becomes stuck at 20:00 hours, but at the same time i boot into Windows 8.1 and the remaining time stuck at 148 hrs., my conclusion it is a Dell bios bug)

6- Airplane mode button switch disabled

all credits to
. this will force wifi and bluetooth to work even if you booted OSX with Airplane mode ON and it will disable the functionality of (Fn+F2)
