iKext (kext installer) 2.0
Download iKext (kext installer) 2.0
A fast, simple kernel extension (kext) installer that I created for personal use and thought I'd share with users here.
Its created following Apple's guidelines for installing extensions, meaning that it does not force-recreate caches like other kext installer utilities (which caused me some strange issues, and is the reason behind creating this tool).
Provided as-is without warranty of any kind.
WARNING: Do NOT use this with Yosemite DP7. According to Apple, there's a bug in DP7 that makes systems un-bootable. Here's the fix straight from Apple developers' documents:
Installing kernel extensions on systems running Developer Preview 7 may make your system un-bootable. To fix the issue, boot into the Recovery Partition and run the following:
- touch /Volumes/<10.10 Partition>/System/Library/Extensions
- kextcache -u /Volumes/<10.10 Partition>
