Original Installer 3.3.0 was released somewhere in March and since then, there were quite few changes and fixes. I put them together here to make it easier for newcomers.

Installer 3.3.0 can be found here

1. Keyboard Fix.
It fixes problem with "bbbb" and wrong brightness mapping.

blueking version with alternative mapping. It's using F1-F12 keys instead of Fn + F1-F12

2. Battery Info (optional)
Zprood over InsanelyMac released two kexts for 10.7.3 that display additional battery and power info in "System Information". It's not perfect at this moment. Percentage sometimes get stuck at 98% or 96%. If you want to use it replace in /S*/L*/Ex*

3. Glitches and horizontal lines control
Systems with more than 4GB of RAM have problems with horizontal lines. Application known as "Fan Control" helps greatly in reducing graphics glitches. Rather than using outdated original application I recommend native 64bit compiled by mac4mat for Lion systems.

4. Quiet Fan
Experimental version of DSDT edit that significantly reduces fan noise. It works best for stock systems. Some reports about bad reading for systems with additional SSD drives

kexts that go along with it.

5. Bluetooth kext for Atheros combo card AR3011/AR9285

Installer 3.3.0 is using old solution that doesn't work after sleep and restart. This kext makes Bluetooth fully functional. Latest one

6. Atheros 3011 Bluetooth disabler.

If you have a Magic Trackpad, Atheros hardware AR3011 cannot handle 4 and 5 fingers swipes. Some people will use external Bluetooth dongle. This kext will disable internal one to avoid any conflicts.

He will be back, he's just a little busy at the moment... But not too busy to be working on something for us ;)

how do i go about installing these kexts? I'm running 10.7.3 using the pro book installer supplied by blueking.

i assume i rerun the pro book installer and add these files during the installation process?
