Hello Everybody!!!! I am here again to bring a tip to the users of kexts.com ... One of the most common things that happen when using a Hackintosh, is having to make some simple changes in kexts for a device to work properly ... But why do we have to do this?? When Apple uses a specific hardware, it approves this device, thus, it creates a driver (kext) to control the device, containing all Device Identifiers (DeviceID) to be used by this hardware ... This means that, whenever Apple is using that hardware, it must have The same sequence of Device Identifiers (DeviceID) which has been approved by Apple ... In the case of PC, in most cases, the devices have the same DeviceID`s used by Apple, but sometimes this may not happen and other times, Apple may remove a device from the list ... Sometimes, can not solve, but in others, only adding the new DeviceID can make the kext recognize it ... The first thing we need to discover, is the DeviceID of the hardware we are trying to activate, There are several ways to find that out, but the easiest is to use the System Info app. System Info Download > System Info - Downloads - Kexts.com Official Thread > olarila.com • Exibir tópico - System Info ? DPCIManager >?https://sourceforge.net/projects/dpcimanager/ ? As you can see in the image, it detects all devices on the machine and shows their VendorID and DeviceID ... Having the VendorID and DeviceID in hand, we now need to add it to the file "info.plist" that is inside the kext ... NOTE: Keep in mind that a "kext" is nothing more than a folder and its contents form a Kernel Extension ... First, create a copy of the kext that will handle in a safe place and then create another copy on your desktop, and this is the one that we will modify ... Click the right mouse button on the kext (for those using Apple mouse use CTRL + Click) and select "Show Package Contents"... A window will open with the contents of the kext, enter the folder "Contents", and again, click the Right-click on the file "info.plist", select "Open With" and navigate to your application to edit text files ... NOTE: In my case, I use TextWrangler.app but if you have`t, you can use TextEdit.app to make modifications to the file. Just be careful, when you save the changes, not allow the application to modify the file extension, it should be ".plist". If you have other termination than ".plist" changes have no will effect. "Okay, but where do I enter the information??" This can vary from kext to kext, usually the examples below are the most used, and you have to enter your DeviceID (and VendorID if necessary) according to the example for each "string" ... ? <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key><string>0x813610ec</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID</string> <key>IOPCIMatch</key><string>0x816910ec 0x816710ec 0x816810ec 0x813610ec</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID</string> <key>IONameMatch</key><array><string>pci8086,27b8</string><string>pci8086,2811</string><string>pci8086,2815</string><string>pci8086,27b9</string><string>pci8086,27bd</string><string>pci8086,2670</string><string>pci8086,8119</string><string>pci8086,2916</string><string>pci8086,3a18</string><string>pci8086,3b00</string><string>pci8086,3b01</string><string>pci8086,3b02</string><string>pci8086,3b09</string><string>pci10de,aac</string><string>pci10de,aae</string><string>pci10de,aaf</string><string>pci10de,d80</string><string>pci10de,d81</string><string>pci10de,d82</string><string>pci10de,d83</string></array>Example = <string>pciVendorID,DeviceID</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key><string>0x00f010de&0xfff0ffff0x019010de&0xfff0ffff0x040010de&0xfff0ffff0x042010de&0xfff0ffff0x05e010de&0xfff8ffff0x05f010de&0xfff0ffff0x060010de&0xffe0ffff0x062010de&0xffe0ffff0x064010de&0xffe0ffff0x06e010de&0xfff0ffff0x086010de&0xffe0ffff0x08a010de&0xffe0ffff0x0a2010de&0xffa0ffff0x0ca010de&0xffe0ffff</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID&0xfff0ffff</string> After editing the file and save the changes, we need to repair the file permissions ... For this, run the following command in teminal ... chown -R root:wheel /PATHTOTHEKEXT/NAMEOFTHEKEXT.kextchmod -R 755 /PATHTOTHEKEXT/NAMEOFTHEKEXT.kextNow we need to install the kext for this, use the program you want ... I use Kext Wizard to install kexts, repair permissions and rebuild the system caches ... Kext Wizard Download > Kext Wizard 3.7.10 - Downloads - Kexts.com Official Thread > Kext Wizard - InsanelyMac Forum Even with the Kext Wizard you can check if the kext is for 64 or 32bit ... Just navigate to the kext and click "Check" ... After installation, I recommend that you repair permissions and re-create the caches manually, running the following commands in the terminal ... ? sudo -sTYPE YOUR PASSWORDchown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/*kextcache -v 3 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext -z /System/Library/Extensionschown -R root:wheel /Extra/Extensions/*chmod -R 755 /Extra/Extensions/*kextcache -v 3 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext -z /Extra/ExtensionsNOTE: Sometimes there are "kexts" inside "kexts" as you can see in the example below ...
