Accreditation: Giorgio Multi post found here Wiki post found here Edited by p.H and Rampage Dev Method 1: Mac OS X Using Single User Mode Part 1: What Is Single User Mode Single User Mode is different from a Safe Mode boot in that the system goes directly to the console instead of starting up the core elements of Mac OS X (items in /System/Library/, ignoring /Library/, ~/Library/, et al.).

Type the commands below, press enter after finish entering each line: mount - uw / cd /System/Library/Extensions rm -rf name_of_the_kext.kext sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/* shutdown -r now Note Make Sure That The Spaces And Casing In The Text Is Correct 7. The kext should now be removed Method 2: Using Windows Or Other Operating System You can remove a kext by using macdrive or other programs which allow you to access the OS X partition. All you need to do is just delete the entire folder of the kext. (kexts are displayed as folders on windows or other OS)
