cVaD, great utility as always  :thumbsup_anim:

 

Do you know if it's safe to use v2.5.7 on the final 10.10 to rebuild and / or repair caches?

Yes, but at this point, the KU does not add boot arg "kext-dev-mode=1" automatically, so you must do it manually.

Otherwise, AppleKextExcludeList.kext and msdosfs.kext drivers lose their digital signature and are not loaded.

Kext Utility.app v2.5.7

  • NEW! Patch msdosfs.kext Info.plist for add OSBundleRequired="Console". That provides access to an EFI partition in single user mode.

 

 

Just an information, regarding this update and Yosemite.

 

Since Kext Utility will automatically patch msdosfs.kext, Yosemite will refuse to load it because it'll turn into an "unsigned kext".

 

Then, it'll be necessary to always boot the system with the "kext-dev-mode=1" argument, otherwise you won't be able to load the kext and be able to do operations that require it (like mounting a FAT32 EFI partition, for Clover management, for example).

Does it add the boot arg to Clover config.plist in EFI partition too?

 

Also, since I've used Kext Utility 2.5.7, I now have a patched msdosfs.kext in my /S/L/E.

I'd like to reinstall the original version.

 

I've tried to open Yosemite installer with Pacifist, but looks like it can't extract a complete .kext (there are 2 kexts versions in Yosemite installer, one in BaseSystemBinaries and another one in BaseSystemResources).

One is extracted with only .plist files, and the other one is extracted with only the binary file.

 

Do you know how can I reinstall that original kext?

 

Edit

 

Nevermind. I've mounted BaseSystem.dmg and found the kext in there.

KU adds the boot arg "kext-dev-mode=1" in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist.
If you want have original msdosfs.kext - restore it Info.plist from backup in msdosfs.kext/Contents directory.

Great utility but 2.5.8 is giving me trouble on Yosemite. This happens when it gets to "Syncing disk cache".It hogs all the memory I have to force quit it.
