  • AR946X (AR9462 & AR9463)

  • AR9565


Boot args:

  • AR946X: (Default)
  • AR9485: -ath9485
  • AR9565: -ath9565


  • This kext version requires LILU plugin version 1.2.6+
  • Download Lilu.kext, ATH9KInjector.kext and ATH9KFixup.kext
  • Inject Lilu.kext and ATH9KFixup.kext using CLOVER bootloader.
  • Install ATH9KInjector.kext to /System/Library/Extensions (CLOVER injection won't work).
  • User -ath9485 boot arg for AR9485 and -ath9565 for AR9565 (If you don't use any boot args it will do the patching for AR946X by default)
  • Optional (Rebuild Caches)
