This is awesome! I've been trying to use modbin's method as well as follow the X Dev team notes and create my own for about a month now. I wish I had known about this method back then.

Hats off to you, bud.

ikari -

what kind of devices are your HD and your DVDRW... SATA?
if you are able to make your HD external, try that to be able to install. this will be a short term fix for the install. once you install externally, boot externally using safe mode ("-x") then change the kexts. After you successfully do this, change out to running internally and the drive should be read-write. The major problems right now are people mis-placing the kexts or not properly setting the permissions.

if you need more help on this method, see this post.

I've been having the same problem with my SATA DVDRW drive and CDRW/DVD drive. They both work fine before I re-kext using MeDevil's ATA kext. I only have SATA ports on my motherboard and thus was forced to use a SATA-to-USB adapter cable to connect my HD externally and install. Everything works when it is running externally (without the kext, and without the Ge* and NV* kexts in Extensions) but you can understand why I wouldn't want to run my computer via an external cable if I didn't have to. The only way to do this is to use the kext-fix and then the optical devices don't work. The specifics of my drives are noticed through System Profile:

LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1S:

Firmware Revision: 9L08
Interconnect: ATAPI
Burn Support: Yes (Generic Drive Support)
Profile Path: None
Cache: 2048 KB

DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RAM, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW
Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO
Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds


and

TSSTcorp CDRWDVD TS-H493B:

Firmware Revision: D200
Interconnect: ATAPI
Burn Support: Yes (Generic Drive Support)
Profile Path: None
Cache: 2048 KB
Reads DVD: Yes
CD-Write: -R, -RW
Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw
Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds


A few notes... when I connect the devices externally through the before-mentioned cable, I am able to use them just fine, but again I don't want to be relient on an external solution. Also, I have tried to switch around the configuration of the drives and even attempt to run with just a HD and one Optical device so I know it isn't the controller.

Any Ideas? Thanks.
