  1. Asus N56VM / N76xx Extra, Extensions ML

    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

    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"
