#1938940 TP-Link WN727N (RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext) Restart / Shutdown Problem

Posted by eep357 on 15 August 2013 - 06:50 AM

If everything except sound works otb, why install RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext?  :D Anyway, after usual stuff like restart fix in boot loader or DSDT has been tried, check kext's dependancies, maybe need to roll back another kext like IOUSBFamily, etc.. If this is UHCI (USB 1.1) and all other devices are EHCI (USB 2.0) or 3.0, see if another USB 1.0 device that works otb can cause same problem. Process of elimination will eventually lead you to the cure.

#1908938 Windows 8 a major fiasco both on PCs and phones

Posted by eep357 on 20 April 2013 - 03:25 AM

I consider my self computer savvy (no need to list credentials here like similar posters do elsewhere) :) Windows 8 makes me feel retarded, like I'm some computer noob. After wanting to throw mice and keyboards at stuff in frustration at how difficult everything had to be, and within 3mins of booting and finishing updates on a new install getting spyware (only site visited was AIDA64), I don't think I'm the retarded one. I'll take XP or win7 over that {censored} any day. Especially when, away from home, if I'm on Windows it's because I'm working and need to get stuff stuff done. Metro cannot make that easier anyway you look at it. I can't imagine switching between multiple Excel spreadsheets going in and out of Access with Metro wanting to be my program/file manager.

#1905756 Legacy USB Support

Posted by eep357 on 11 April 2013 - 07:45 AM

I don't know if that's the cause of your problem, but couldn't you just plug the 2nd "power only" cable into another computer, or a iPhone charger, or any USB port that supplies power?

#1905753 iMessage not working - iCloud/Internet etc working - Changed boot.plist file...

Posted by eep357 on 11 April 2013 - 07:14 AM

Just posting here in case it helps others. It wasn't working on a friend's genuine Mac Pro, so I was troubleshooting and found he had a strange hosts file filled with entries meant to defeat Adobe applications DRM. Anyway, the lines that killed iMessage in hosts were: crl.verisign.net CRL.VERISIGN.NET.* Those are Verisign's Certificate Revocation List, and by blocking them it blocked iMessage and FaceTime from securely logging in. Once I removed those entries, both iMessage and FaceTime worked instantly. Good reminder, as blocking Verisign will break access to just about every secure website or 3rd party server. (won't help defeat Adobe DRM either :) )

Yip, same here. I was literally clueless when it came to OS X, I found a Youtube video, and the guy used his tools, and made an awesome, easy to follow how to install video that explained everything. Unfortunately I didn't realize they had sticks so far up their asses when it came to anything outside of their little world. So, would that mean they have sticks coming out their mouths? Cause you can only go up so far :)

Well I have Windows 8 install that has only ever been booted a few times and is only used to do firmware updates or run AIDA64 and then go right back to OSX. It at least got malware, making Chrome have fake phishing Adobe Flash update popup windows. Just connecting to internet and opening web browser seems to be enough :) Win 8 not winning me over! :P

Well, if I was "Windowsing" computers for them, I'd get way more calls :) It's never been the Hackintoshes fault, but user or hardware failure(don't do this anymore BTW). If they were slightly computer literate, I wouldn't be the one installing OSX in the first place :) I've done home media installs in the past and get call months later cause the phone doesn't work. It's phone company's problem and wiring is no where near anything I do (outside house in front vs inside house in back), but call me instead of phone company because I was the last person to be there that owned a pair of wire strippers :) Same thing. Or...at current job I don't travel while working, but did have 1 1/2 hour drive each way for meeting today. Yesterday boss reminds me just before leaving work , to remember to write down my milage for reimbursement. I say "OK", get in car and when I start it, the LCD display for odometer's PCB burns up! Seriously. 1...

i think that the is also ppl who once that have osx installed that just use it. and don't bother messing about. there just happy to have a very stable system. which means thay no longer come to the forum. don't have the confidence to help others i have four friends i have helped build hacks. that don't wish to up date or mess. just enjoy there systems LOL, the more Hack's I set up for other people, the more time I have to spend fixing them when they screw something up! Sometimes it turns out to be unrelated to being a Hack at all or just stupid, like being asked to come over and fix computer when a simple reboot was all that was needed....."You didn't try that before calling me?!!!!" Of course if they do say they tried to fix it first, that usually means they screwed things up even more....then called me :)

It's here already, for quite a few days in fact: https://meklort.com/~sinet3k/sinedp1 Credits to Sinetek. It's a dp1 kernel, but should also work with 10.8.x, as long as you use the kexts from dp1 (for 10.8.x don't have 32-bit kexts). Try and post there your results, please! All the best! OK, need it at my job tomorrow, big meeting with company contracted for our web content management/database, but suspect I may have a ML MacBook before the weekend! :)

Hi! The kernels in the AMD Development section will run Mountain Lion on any machine which is 64-bit capable (including but not limited to Pentium 4 and Pentium D CPUs), regardless of how old, because of the built-in opcode emulator. Even more than that: a Mountain Lion kernel for 32-bit is under way (but i suppose it will need a 64-bit CPU anyway, since most of the userland processes are 64-bit, i'm afraid). All the best! My MacBook 2,1 stuck on Lion due to GMA950. 32bit ML Kernel FTW!

It seems that making suggestions to users on the right site to solve problems is a mortal sin. But I just explained to someone who was left without answers that certain issues, if not provided for #####, would not be taken into consideration... Permanently Banned (again) for Trolling. :D P.S. i Like "Trolling" on the Tonymac site :dev: LMAO...But I think after 3 bans, you are trolling :D

Posted by eep357 on 02 April 2013 - 10:26 AM

OK, maybe this will be last time? Not trying to sound mean, but this is for your own benefit! 3rd time you've asked this same questions: http://www.insanelym...d-help-im-noob/ http://www.insanelym...0-comp-restart/ Answer is still the same: Just deleting every kext because it restart is because problem with your hardware not supported and not fault of the kext. Reboot is probably not related to graphics and usually is a issue with mach_kernel not being compatible with CPU architecture (i.e. 64bit only ML mach_kernel on 32bit CPU, or mach_kernel on Atom or AMD CPU), but even if this is resolved, fact remains that there is no support available for your integrated graphics...period. Even if you manage to get an older version of OSX installed, it will be useless for anything more than maybe sending email (and that's if networking can work). All the things that make OSX cool (or any computer not totally suck) WON'T WORK! Windows 3.1 would offer a better user experie...

Thank god tony can't use Clover, they would only rebrand it and sell it.It is already strange that they allowed that iMessage thread to survive.This is because since it was problem for everyone, it even effected users who bought the recommended "CustoMac" builds and they were all begging "Tony, help us! We wait for you to fix this for us". Many of us worked together very hard to figure out the final fix and tons of members contributed in one way or another, final piece to puzzle was even posted by user there first (ElNono and flux84), who also posted here and Clover team implemented fix in record time. True community effort! To wait for it to be applied to Chameleon, then trickle down to Chimera, would be very long wait, and he couldn't hide from angry users forever (curiously one early thread on the issue there was accidentally deleted once it got to like 20 pages of "Help Us!" in a few days). Once a fix was available, he made first post...

#1902335 Transferring files from a Hackintosh to a real Mac

Posted by eep357 on 30 March 2013 - 08:01 PM

yup. Transfer from timemachine would work too. Use migration and not restore and it will only migrate your user account, user files and applications and stuff. Best to do this at first boot before making a user account on new machine, or you'll end up with 2 which have to be different names, and....PITA it can become.
