    [GUIDE] USB Fix El Capitan 10.11

    Got my USB ports(USB2/3 + USB3 speeds), bluetooth, and webcam working. My DSDT was not configured to enable the ports associated with bluetooth and webcam. Once I enabled those, I was able to see everything without port restrictions in the kexts. You can find the details by searching another forum with the title "Atheros Bluetooth: IOath3kfrmwr.kext: Not Working (AR3011)". My final solution: DSDT edits (below) and injector kext (below) to bypass apple and allow no port restrictions. Some important notes: > EHC1/2 are renamed to EH01/2 in DSDT to avoid apple conflicts. They are identified as so in the injector. > XHC is labeled as XHC in DSDT (no changes required). > "AppleUSBXHCILPTH1 > IOPCIPrimaryMatch" must match IOreg: added to injector and changed to "0x9cb18086" > Injector removes all port restrictions (no entries under IOProviderMergeProperties). Bootup seems normal again after a couple boots. These fixes all for Acer Aspire E5-771-74E7. Special thanks to RehabMan!

    [GUIDE] USB Fix El Capitan 10.11

    I was able to get all 4 USB ports working in 2 different scenarios: [1] Modify AppleUSBEHCIPCI.kext to force PRT1 on EHC1 @ 0x01. All 4 ports work but USB3 shows up under USB2 hub with only USB2 speeds. [2] Modify AppleUSBXHCIPCI.kext to replace 0x8c318086 with 0x9cb18086 under AppleUSBXHCILPTH1 > IOPCIPrimaryMatch. Also remove port restrictions under MacBookAir6,2-XHC1 > IOProviderMergeProperties. In this scenario, all USB devices show under the USB3 bus and USB3 devices in USB3 ports get USB3 speeds. USB2 devices work fine. My AppleUSBEHCIPCI.kext is never loaded on startup. I always have to load this kext manually. I'm not sure why. Even with the original IOUSBHostFamily.kext, it doesn't load on startup. No matter what types of changes I make from the suggestions in this thread, I cannot get the mix and match of USB2 and USB3 devices under the correct bus/hubs. At least with scenario #2 above, I can get fully working ports with USB3 speeds (tested). My Bluetooth was working in Yosemite 10.10.5 with RehabMan's atheros kext, but I have been unable to get Bluetooth to work with any changes made during these USB tests. I still get "Bluetooth: Not Available" on the menu bar. RehabMan has suggested that my hubs are not properly set up. One thing I've noticed from my DSDT is that EHC2 exists but is never picked up by IORegExp. I also did some debug traces in the DSDT to see if methods under that HUBN are called but they are not. I added an entry to AppleUSBEHCIPCI.kext for EHC2 but the entries don't show up in IORegExp. I'm not sure what else to try for Bluetooth. I have attached my DSDT and ioregs.

    [GUIDE] USB Fix El Capitan 10.11

    Is this the general consensus? I get the feeling that I should feel lucky to have all 4 of my USB ports working, even though USB3 ports respond under the USB2 hub. See: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306777-guide-usb-fix-el-capitan-1011/page-14?do=findComment&comment=2166035

    [GUIDE] USB Fix El Capitan 10.11

    Hi: I'm working on my Acer Aspire E5-771-74E7 (MacBookAir6,2) under Beta 8. Currently, all ports are working and responding to devices correctly but USB3 connections are showing up on the USB2 hub. The USB3 bus is showing in System Info but doesn't have a hub like USB2. My solution to getting the ports working under USB2 seems different from what I've seen from previous posts. My IORegEx doesn't seem to reflect my DSDT very accurately. There are 2xUSB2 and 2xUSB3. > To get all 4 ports working (all under/as USB2), all I have to do is add a PRT1 entry with LocationID = 0x01 under EHC1(see screenshot). > EHC1 doesn't even show up with any PRT# listings in IORegEx. Just PR12 (not sure what that is). > EHC2 exists in my DSDT but doesn't show up in IORegEx. I tried adding to the AppleUSBEHCIPCI kext plist but no change. > I tried adding all non-restricted ports for XHC (as shown in IORegEx) to the AppleUSBXHCIPCI plist. USB3 port connections still showing on USB2 hub. > I have tried actual USB3 devices in the USB3 ports but they still show under the USB2 hub and at USB2 transfer speeds. I've attached some screens, plists, and ioregs without entries (no restrictions) and with (working USB2). Any help appreciated. Thanks. rytz_usb_ioreg_dsdt_kext.zip
  5. Made some progress but going to update in the main thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306777-guide-usb-fix-el-capitan-1011/
  6. Greetings: Running an Acer Aspire E5-771-74E7 laptop. Intel Core i7 5th gen with Intel HD5500. Running Clover MBR/GPT as a MacBookAir6,2. Attempting Capitan beta 8. I have 4 ports: 2xUSB2 and 2xUSB3. On Yosemite 10.10.5, both USB2 and USB3 worked vanilla. I have everything working on Capitan beta 8 except USB. I get no power to any device when they are plugged in. My main reason for moving to Capitan is because of the random HD5500 freezes (FakeSMC rollback didn't work). I have read and tried to follow the main guide thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306777-guide-usb-fix-el-capitan-1011/ From reading through the thread, which is somewhat lengthy now, the general idea is to match up the port numbers based on what the DSDT is presenting. Then there is the issue of port restrictions. Questions: [1] I see suggestions for both having and not having port restrictions. Clover In MacBookAir6,2 , there are no port restrictions. Is it "in some cases" that port restrictions are required? I'm kinda confused here. [2] The USB2 port names in my DSDT and AppleUSBEHCIPCI match up (EHC1). Since there are no restrictions, do I still need to change them in the DSDT to something else? [3] For USB3, I did try changing my DSDT XHC entries to XHC1 but that did not help. Is there something else I need to do? [4] In my DSDT, my port numbers are listed as follows: Do these seem correct? I tried adding the entries manually to the kext without success. I've attached informational files and screenshots for anyone who can lend a hand. Extensions renamed to avoid blocked uploads. Thanks! rytz’s MacBook Pro.ioreg.txt DSDT.dsl.txt config.plist.txt
  7. Guess I shoulda read some more: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/281290-geforce-7400-go-with-mountain-lion/ Doesn't look like these 32-bit cards will work with Mountain Lion. Back to Lion we go .
  8. Hi: I have a Gateway M685-E that I had running 10.7 Lion previously. I needed to redo the laptop from scratch (unrelated hackintosh problems). I now have 10.8 installed successfully but can't boot regularly. When I boot to safe mode, I can log in but afterwards I get a completely "grey" backdrop with a mouse cursor. It appears the system is running fine but there is an issue with the desktop being rendered. All my research points me to my graphics card not being configured. My question is: has anyone successfully gotten the GeForce Go 7600 / 7800 working in Mountain Lion? The best thread I've seen so far is here: http://www.insanelym...o/#entry1842802 I've read about NVEnabler in other places on the net but haven't tried it yet. Has anyone had success with it? I've tried all other command line options that I've read about. GraphicsEnabler, PCIRoot, SafeMode, Cache flags, etc. I haven't done any DSDT stuff yet. Can't do any DSDT editing yet because I can't get working graphics in regular or safe mode. This is definitely going to be interesting since I'll be working in single-user mode until I can get some kind of graphics support in at least safe mode. Thanks for any info.
  9. Sorry to make you butt-hurt for trying to help out. ...and i did try the latest Lnx2Mac drivers - neither release or debug found my card (didn't show in System Info). The official RTG did find my card. Maybe you should take your attitude somewhere else Mr. I'm-So-Awesome?

  12. Greetings: I'm still working on getting my system fully working with all the qwirks out but I had a crazy time getting the LAN card to work so I wanted to post the way to get it to work. I'll post full a full guide on tonymacx86 when I get finished. Here's older related threads: http://www.insanelym...showtopic=29044 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=226359 [system Specs] Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 (Laptop) CPU: i5-2450 Audio: Realtek ALC269 HD Vidoe: Intel HD3000 6G RAM [Realtek RTL8101E / RTL8136 Details] (From Windows HWInfo64) RealTek Semiconductor RTL8101/2/3 Family Fast Ethernet NIC Vendor Description: Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller Maximum Link Speed: 100 Mbps PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_04D81028&REV_05 [install Steps] [step 1]: Download the official Realtek driver for mac 10.7 (listed "MacOS 10.7 on Intel-based Mac computer", filename "RTGNICv2.0.6For10.7"): http://www.realtek.c...3&GetDown=false [step 2]: Install the package. You'll be forced to reboot. [step 3]: Once back in OSX, you'll have to create an Ethernet adapter for your location. When you do, you'll need to manually configure the hardware for that adapter. See below: (System Configuration Menu -> Network -> Ethernet -> Advanced -> Hardware) Configuration: manual Speed: 10baseT/UTP Duplex: Fullduplex MTU: Standard (1500) These instructions taken from this post at osx86.net (using different drivers): http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1825 I can confirm that this works. I'm using my RTL8136 to make this thread. Thanks for all the great info on this board and I hope this helps someone. - Rytz
