    Broadcom 5752 x86_64, I386

    Version 1.0


    This is the BCM5722D kext, made by Adlan. Update Jun, 2015: - This kext still work fine with 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, BUT it cannot load after Sleep (cannot go internet anymore) Silicman added/ Hexed the device id for the BCM5752 (14e4 1600). This is the networkchip that is inside the Dell Precision 490. When you add your device ID, it works (maybe) with this models to: It should support the following models: BCM5754 BCM5754M BCM5755 BCM5755M BCM5787 BCM5787M # BCM5906 # BCM5906M # I did 2 minor fix: 1. infor.plist. I replace pci14e4,167A with pci14e4,1600 2. BCM5722D. I hex this file, looking for "7A 16" then replace all with "00 16". (flip word anyway). Finally, I put them inside IONetworking kext which replace the original one. Reinstall this kext. Re-build cache. Re boot. Viola!!! No kernal panic, MAC address just there, DHCP ok, even though I haven't plug in network yet. Tested on iAtKos L2 (Lion 10.7.2).

    another note: I install Lion 10.7.2 iATKOS L2, not the retail downloaded from app store, maybe the guy who made this install disc moded NVDAGF100Hal.kext with wildcard so it can support many GTX card so far.

    @mcarthy1991: I solved the problem and figured it out what cause the monitor turnoff after install these kext. The wrong HEX string in org.chameleon.boot cause turnoff the monitor. You need to make one for ur system. Try to use OSX86Tools make one. I follow this guide But, even though we use OSx86Tools, it would generate wrong HEX string if your system can not run LSPCI (the button beside the "Add EFI string" button). If the LSPCI can't see your system info how can OSx86Tool can make the right Hex string one. Right? In my case, Dell 490 workstation upgraded to CPU xeon E5345 and everything else stay the same as 4 years ago, LSPCI could not run right on Lion, but it could run fine on Snow Leopard 10.6.8. So I restore my backed up system then use OSx86Tools make the Hex string for this card, MSI GTX 550Ti 1024MB. Put it in boot.plist. (No kexts need edit because my card is the NVIDIA's reference card (1 fan)). It run, full QE/CI. Haven't test HDMI, but I haven't need it yet. Cinebench give - OpenGL ~22 fps - CPU ~6 fps The result just same as under Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on It's low because the PCI-E x16 v1.0a on the motherboard. GPU can't load over 69% every test. Sad!!!! Hope my experience can help you.

    I got sleep problem too. After load NVDAGF100Hal.kext, see at -v mode, then the monitor turnoff then the PC sleep. Cause my system can't wakeup from sleep then I could not do anything. but, I did install driver from nvidia website which made for 10.7.3 and I'm on 10.7.2 (iATKos L2), not the kext in here. With kexts in here my pc did not recognize anyway, NVDAGF100Hal.kext registed but not work at full screen resolution. My system is Dell 490 workstation. Any idea would be appreciate!
