About This File


This is a Package for Atheros AR5B195 which contains AR9285 Wifi with PID:168c,2b and Bluetooth AR3011 with the PID:3304


If you have different PID for your Wifi Chip then edit the info.plist file inside the Atheros kext with your's.


The Bluetooth Enabler Kext can work with other PID's, for this have to edit the info.plist file inside the kext with your's pid and vid. Convert the hex values of pid & vid to decimal and enter these values in the info.plist file.

What it does is just uploads the firmware so It can be operated by the operating system drivers of Apple which doesn't upload firmware.

Tested in 10.7.3 Only. But it can work for other versions too, if you find its not working then let me know I will try to fix it

UPDATE: Had some problems with Fn+F2 switch before but this update fixes almost just a small bug only appears during restart where BT is not enabled but can be enabled/Disabled manually using Fn+F2 with this update.

UPDATE2: Now its been updated to remove the errors and failing to enable the BT on restarts, however it will show the KIOErrors only during first system start it happens becoz this upload won't load before the probe from OS. But its better than before error since it won't upload every time the firmware (Only uploads during first system start only) unlike before.

For Turning on and off bluetooth, use hardware keys Fn+F2 in Asus Notebooks (Press Twice to toggle Bluetooth)

credit goes to mac4mat from {censored} for the Bluetooth Kext

Update#3: Changed the Title to include the Wifi which comes together with this Bluetooth and also included the latest kext for Wifi along with updated and recompiled Bluetooth kext.

Update#4 : Updated and Fixed Kexts for Both Lion and Mountain Lion,
