NVIDIA Kexts for OSX

This is is an official driver , which I’ve patched for Hackint0sh. It was released by NVIDIA to address some issues with MacPro Late 2009 model with GeForce 2xx series graphics card. Basically what this driver does is that it gives you :-

  • Improved performance for games such as Team Fortress 2 , Starcraft II and other games (It gives a large frame boost)
  • Improves overall stability with OpenGL applications (I’ve found out that my old Rayman III game doesn’t crash anymore)

However , I’ve patched it , basically I’ve removed a script inside the installer which checks for the right Mac Model and Graphics Card. Thus allowing real mac (yes I’ve tested it with my MacBook Pro Core i5 with GeForce 330M) and as well as Hackintosh to work.
It requires MacOS X 10.6.3 and above. It works with NVIDIA GeForce 8 , GeForce 9 , GeForce 1xx series , GeForce 2xx series. It does not work with GeForce 4xx series.
There are few drawbacks. Firstly , you’ll be losing Power Management -which translates to noisy fan (Fan will stay at 100%). This is somewhat bad if you are using a laptop or if you care for a noise-free environment. Secondly , this kext has known to cause kernel panics with certain configuration.
IMPORTANT NOTICE : MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BACKED UP YOUR SYSTEM. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHAT YOU ARE DOING , ITS NOT RECOMMENDED TO INSTALL THIS. HOWEVER IF YOU’RE CURIOUS AND YOU KNOW HOW TO RECOVER IN AN EVENT OF SOMETHING GOES WRONG , FEEL FREE TO DOWNLOAD IT

P1 Wiggy on OSX – A bit of progress

Today I’ve managed to trace on how to get Wiggy to sorta work on OSX. It seems that P1 is far behind or they are working hard in getting Wiggy to work with OSX. I’ve found out that there is indeed a driver for P1 WiMax as we all know that it uses GCT Semiconductor, Inc. There is a driver for OSX . But I am not sure why p1 guys aren’t aware of it or they are trying to develop a software locally to work with P1 Wiggy. Nevertheless , its up to them. I would just like to report to you and as well as to them that it kinda works. I’ve attached the kext file (which is indeed the drivers extension that allows to be booted). As for now all you get is a Blue solid light from P1 WiMax Wiggy and thats bout it

P1 WiMax Wiggy is detected by OSX
P1 WiMax Wiggy is detected by OSX

That’s bout it. We can only get it to detect and boot-up apart from that. I can’t connect because I don’t have the keys to connect nor a solid utility . I’ll try asking P1 for the keys so that its possible for me to test it out for the last time before I give them the device for good . Oh yeah , click here to download it !
You may ask how to install this. Firstly get kext helper (sorry it runs only on Intel Mac) and simply drag and drop this kext file and enter your administrator’s password and hit Install. it will do the rest for you
Edit : Part of this goes to l33tdawg as he is  the one that posted success but then he didn’t upload nor provide any kexts whereby users can test it out or post any reports. So I had to find the kexts and patch it up and then upload it 😛
