Are you using Clover?

ok then when you boot into clover [before you select the myhacks boot option] hit spacebar on myhacks and choose 'boot without caches'

Same thing. Mouse doesn't work.

 

I've noticed something weird though. According to the verbose debug. It looks like both ApplePS2Controller AND Voodoo one (although the Voodoo kext isn't even there) are loaded. Also, the Trackpad kext prints something like "GlidePoint" or so.

are you talking in /EFI/CLOVER/EXTRA/EXTENSIONS ?

 

If so, I'd remove the voodoo kexts from your installer usb and then try loading > spacebar > without caches.

 

rename it to .bak, and i that doesnt work, change Appleps2 to .bak and reset voodoo, then try that

 

 

do a full search of your usb to remove/backup the voodoo kexts

There's completely no kexts named "voodoo" on the USB, neither in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.9/ nor in /System/Library/Extensions. There's no extra/extensions in /EFI/CLOVER. I'm going to try that ApplePS2 thing and report the result.


EDIT: As expected, that didn't work either. However, I searched for the voodoo thing again and I found that the kext inside /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.9/, ApplePS2Controller.kext , has VoodooPS2Controller in its Contents/MacOS . I renamed that kext to ApplePS2Controller.kext.bak already and tried booting without cache but that didn't work.

 

I also noticed that there's another ApplePS2Controller.kext in myHack's partition's /Extra/Extensions/ , so I guess they may be forming some kind of collision or so.

I've already tried for every single boot of trying to get that working. A USB mouse doesn't work either.

What is your trackpad?

 

Remove all PS2 kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/10.9 and use this: https://dl.dropboxus...roller.kext.zip

It's Elantech.

 

I tried that, it didn't work either.

 

Afterwards I tried removing ApplePS2Controller.kext from Extra/Extensions (I already removed the EFI/Clover one), and now neither the keyboard nor the touchpad work, so I'm just going to restore it.

I dived deeper and I found out that the MyHack.kext installed with myHack has its own ApplePS2Controller and that it always overrode whatever came before it, except the Voodoo kext, because of the alphabetical order. I backed it up and deleted the one on the USB, I copied the ApplePS2Controller.kext and used myHack's myFix option to fix the permissions and then I deleted the myHack kext again, however, neither the USB mouse, the wireless mouse, the touchpad, nor the laptop's keyboard works right now.

I tried again using myHack, OSXLatitude boot pack, the USB fix kexts, -v and PciRoot=1 as boot flags. I had to use a USB mouse and keyboard to be able to control the thing. I successfully erased my partition and started installing, however, it stopped at around 70%~80% of the progress. I couldn't save the logs but I got a screenshot, which is attached.

Did some moderator put this topic in an "under an invisibility cloak" mode?
