I will be trying this out!
WIP Testing has always been my thing!
EDIT:
Oh wow... I gotta good looking log!
Except for the firmwareLoadComplete FAILURE: dc008006.

Here it is:

Hi @ammulder

Do you expect to continue with this project? I am very interested in it

I expect to continue, but I have a big pile of other stuff on my plate at the moment, so I'm not making progress right now. I would like to get back to it.

Hi. I have an Intel AC 7260. I installed the kext, rebooted, and only Bluetooth is detected and working. I have no clue how to get the wifi to work. Please help. Thank you.

Perhaps you should read post #1 more carefully...

but it doesn't yet do important things like, say, connect to a network.

Take your time!
It is great that you are doing this in the first place, and I can hold off on getting the WiFi drivers for now. I can use Horndis or ethernet for the time being.

Hi ammulder,

Have you tried having a look at this project? It was from someone a while back who got their Intel PRO/Wireless card working in OSX 10.6. It required some Voodoo kexts and an Intel driver >
