Okay, so I managed to do this mod - but not without difficulty. I'll list my problems and how I fixed them, just incase they can help anyone else.

1.) b43-fwcutter; when installing it didn't actually prompt me to extract firmware as it apparantly should. I followed a guide on which had a link to the actual driver files, which I then extracted the firmware from using b43-fwcutter commands (I had never used linux before and I managed it following the guide on that site, so most people should be able to.)

2.) Downloading b43-tools; the link in the original post is outdated. This is the link which worked for me: git clone git://

3.) SSB_SPROM Commands; copying and pasting the long commands from prasys blog brought up an error, as the values should be FxFFFF but when published on the web the "x" is replaced with a multiply sign. Don't let this trip you up.

Hope this helped anyone who's having trouble. My card is now reported as "Airport Extreme" and working perfectly!

Worked great for me, though I had a lot of problems with the codes, I got it recognized as an Airport Extreme, little training for my coming 1510 a/g/n Half Mini-Card!!

Wifi should work out of the box with a mini 9, rebranding the wifi card doesn't really do much, it supposedly gives minor performance increases, but it's by no means necessary.

mini 10v | osx 10.6.8 on 106gb | win8 dev preview on 106gb | ubuntu 11.10 alpha on 106gb | nbi 0.8.4(modified) | 320gb | 2 gigs ram
