  1. Works out of the box! I use it on the Asus N56vm laptop. Thanks!
  2. the install : In bios : set graphic memory to 64MB, disabling Secure Boot and "allow CMS booting". I remove the original HDD to replace it with a nice Seagate ssd/hd hybrid disk (optimus XT). - format the new disk with another ML install on my desktop computer : MBR and mac os journalised. -download the image "Asus_N_install" proposed on the russian forum: http://ukrainianipho...&st=20&start=20 -download "R-Drive Image" ( http://www.r-tt.com/...DriveImage5.exe) and run it in a win 7 virtual machine; the file downloaded before is a drive image (.arc), so in R-Drive, select "restaure image to disk" or something like this... choose the .arc file as source, then your HHD as dest. (I am using an USB hdd case, so in VMware Fusion, i can choose to plug it to the virtual machine) -install the HDD in your N56, then boot...That's all, you will arrive to the screen you get after the second boot after a usual osx install, enter Icloud, name, password and so on registration data, you will just have to deal for this step with russian langage. -One time your ML is started, go to system/pref/langage and text and set your own langage, restart finder, you're done. With this last image proposed on the russian forum, there is no need to install Kext of the "post install" folder, they're all already correctly installed. AppStore will propose you an update (10.8.2 supplement, about thunderbold and other thing) : do not install it for the while, or you will have probleme at reboot, related at least to a new AppleHDA.kext, but to other kext too (acpi...not sure). FN keys are working (screen luminosity/contrast, sound up and down, keyboard backlight (only on or off, no steps) and screen on/off. Bluetooth working, but WIFI not (ar9485 card not supported by OSx), I replaced it by a ralink wifi dongle. A man is working on a driver for the trackpad (elan V4), for the while still buggy. Sound working after installing "VoodooHDA-v2.7.4.r63.pkg" Subwoofer not working. Camera work when you use it to take a picture for user avatar, but not start in photobooth or facetime (?)... I'm using the DSDT provided with the image, my model (n56vj) seems to be very the same than n56vm/vz. If you get no/black/splitted screen at boot, try to add "HD4000PlatformId=3" at boot, try different number (9,5,3...) To use the elan v4 driver, you will have to remove VoodooPS2, ApplePS2 and AppleACPINub..
  3. Just start with this link here is a lot of info to boot with an USB dongle: http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1627 Follow the instructions, but replace the files with the one's here above.

  6. Version 1.0


    Due to may Dell M1530, which the GPU has burned I was in search for an hackintosh replacement. This Asus N56VM performs well also after some tweakes and searching the web. I found this website: http://ukrainianiphone.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=24683&st=20&start=20 Proof: Which provide all the necessary information about running OSX 10.8.1 ;-) thanks to marklangovoi / M-dudarev who did a lot of research! My ASUS is running very well, 2hours on full battery! IMPORTANT; use an MBR harddisk configuration instead of GPT! otherwise the HDD or SSD won't be recognized by the BIOS! use 2 partition by dual boot, first OSX, 2nd Windows 7. Working: - Intel HD 4000 Q/E full HD 1920 x 1080 - Wifi with changing the original to an AR9285 half sized card - Ethernet /S/L/E/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/ALXEthernet.kext (http://www.osx86.net/view/3446-atheros_ar8131-32-51-52-61-62-71-72.html) - Bluetooth with Asus usb BT21 dongle (now also use of my Magic mouse) + Airdrop! - Battery indicator works! - Sound, speakers, mic, earphones! - USB 2.0 (usb 3.0 didn't used so far?) - Function keys (only sound keys; FN + F10,11,12 / ALSO: F5 & F6 Brightness control) - Trackpad (only cursor, not scrolling with two fingers) - restart, shutdown - DVD burner - SD card reader (working > BIOS > USB configuration > XHCI > Smart auto + override USB drivers) - Sleep! - Elan touchpad (http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=3472) Not (yet) working: - Full Nvidia GT630m (to disable: http://www.applelife.ru/threads/nvidia-optimus-%D0%B2%D1%8B%D0%BA%D0%BB%D1%8E%D1%87%D0%B0%D0%B5%D0%BC-nvidia.36346/) - Webcam, only light flashes but doesn't turn on by photo booth I found also extra information of the ACPI files (for linux): http://dev.iksaif.net/projects/acpi4asus http://dev.iksaif.net/issues/242#change-995 Maybe someone can port this project... Also information about the bios mod to enable discrete GT6xx instead of HD4000 http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-ASUS-N56VZ-XTU-unlock-requested%3Fpage%3D3&usg=ALkJrhhmf6LqNwAE5rFCDY5N27l3VeInhw Good luck! Update (18-10-2012): Just start with this link here is a lot of info to boot with an USB dongle: http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1627 USB write program: ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/kiwi/ImageWriter.exe Image for usb : http://kat.ph/os-x-10-8-mountain-lio...-t6526209.html Follow the instructions, but replace the files with the one's here above (extra + extensions to replace) instructions of replacement: 1) replace the current folder Extra with the one extra folder in this zip. 2) copy the extensions to replace in this zip to: /System/Library/Extensions One of my experience; DON'T use the new BIOS 211 or 214 from asus! version 206 works fine! or flash back with "winflash /nodate"
  7. How did you disable this? which code?
