CarryDude, you should try to put the CountryCode and Locale not at the end of the file, but just before the end :

I'll try it tonight and repost some result.

I am trying modifying the info.plist from the AirportAtheros21 kext.
But my IORegistry show me APAC as Locale and nothing as CountryCode.

What means FCC ? 'cause i'm in france, so i can't use FCC/US

Hello everyone, I too have the same point.
Ar9285 recognized but no network.
I compared the Airport System Profiler on my Mac Mini (original) with that of Snow/Asus: my countrycode IT, locale ETSI, I suppose because I'm in Italy.
I tried unsuccessfully changes to the kext as indicated by Hellboy ..
if someone gives me more information I can try ..
Great job everyone!

So, i tried what CarryDude said :
it doesn't work for me, but i tried different thing :
i saw an other IOProviderClass key in the file, so I put the dict section just below.
but it break the kext, i couldn't load it.
so i tried to put only locale and country code below the IOProviderClass, and I get the same result as CarryDude said.

So I will continue to try different thing.

You could try something like: but it's risky. But if successful it may work because I'm lead to believe the iMac11,1 has something close to these cards.
From sys profiler dump:

Type: Other Network Controller
Bus: PCI
Vendor ID: 0x168c
Device ID: 0x002a
Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x106b
Subsystem ID: 0x008f
Revision ID: 0x0001
Link Width: x1
someone was able to get it working.
Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x168C, 0x8F)
Firmware Version: Atheros 9280:

GA-Z68XP-UD3: Lion 10.7.3, Windows 7 Professional 64bit SP1 and FreeBSD 9-RELEASE, Core i5 2500K @ 3.3GHz, 16GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 ram(Soon), 1GB GDDR5 Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti, 2X 1TB Samsung F3 SATA HDDs, 1X WDC Blue 500GB HDD; Dell Mini 10v: Obsidian Black, 2GB DDR2 533MHz Ram, 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270, 120GB HDD, 6-Cell, Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 Build 10K549

It's not the problem of IO80211Locale

I've patched the binary and now and
IO80211Locale is set to FCC, But the card can't work yet.
