In Topic: Mavericks Stucks on booting

What is the model number of your Gigabyte motherboard?  What is the model of your i3 processor?  Is it a Haswell?  You could be experiencing the early reboot phenomenon detailed by Rehabman in this thread: http://www.insanelym...63cl-i7-4700mq/

In Topic: [Help] 9380 wifi on snow leopard

28 January 2014 - 04:20 PM

AR9380 is natively supported in IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Plugins/AirPortAtheros40.kext starting with 10.6.5.

I've searched through the combo updates for 10.6.x.


10.6 - 10.6.7 there is only AirPortAtheros21.kext

10.6.8 and 10.6.8 v1.1 there is AirPortAtheros9388.kext which has the correct device id


AirPortAtheros40.kext (with the correct device id) doesn't appear until Lion.

In Topic: HWSensors

HWSensors.6.0.1077.pkg is a standard Apple installer package.  These can be examined using the app Pacifist from Charlessoft.  Open the pkg using Pacifist, click on an item of interest like HWMonitor.app and then click on the "Show Info" button.  The pane that opens will tell you that HWMonitor.app gets installed in /Applications.


Likewise, FakeSMC.kext gets installed in /System/Library/Extensions.  And the various sensors kexts get installed inside a Plugins folder hidden inside the FakeSMC.kext (Ie. FakeSMC.kext/Contents/Plugins)

I bought an apple 9380

The 9380 is an Atheros AR9380.  The vendor id is 168c and the device id is 0030.  I did some checking in old versions of OSX and this combo doesn't show up until Lion (10.7.x) where it is in the plugin AirPortAtheros40.kext.  That plugin is not included at all in Snow Leopard (10.6.x).
