Hi, i have error install kext in elcapitan, what is the problem?

kext-dev-mode=1 and rootless=0 - Unfortunately, these keys are no longer working for future versions of Mac OS X starting with El Capitan GM.

You need disable SIP with Clover Bootloader.

Can you please make an updated version and remove this(especially on 10.11)?

Thanks.

Currently, it is not required - you can just disable unnecessary arguments in the KU configuration file.

Thanks I missed that config file.

 

For El Capitan and SIP, in my case, I have SIP file system protection on and kext signature off, and I put all extra kext to /L/E,

so I would love some new options if possible:

 

Install to /Library/Extension instead of /S/L/E

Option for skipping repair permission for /S/L/E

 

Thanks again.

i found something in 10.6.8

 

chameleon bootloader use Extensions.kext long time ago.

 

clover not use Extensions.mkext

 

Clover Bootloader needs /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache_x86_64.121AD149 file for booting 10.6.x

 

but Kext Utility only make /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext in 10.6.8

 

 

As result

i install kext in kext utility

then

i have to rebuild kernel cache like this

 

 

sudo chown root:admin /

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

sudo kextcache -system-caches

 

then reboot, i can boot.

 

 

Kext Utility is no problem in 10.7~10.11

 

Kext Utility make /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache in others OS X 10.7~10.11 

 

 

thanks in advanced

Hi, sherlocks.

KU does not make any cache files itself. The program only initiates the call system function to update cache files.

Unfortunately, for OS X version 10.6 standard cache file is Extensions.mkext.

Hi, sherlocks.

KU does not make any cache files itself. The program only initiates the call system function to update cache files.

Unfortunately, for OS X version 10.6 standard cache file is Extensions.mkext.

I think KU surely make kernel cache file.

Because i checked cache file 10.6~10.11

 

In 10.7~10.11, KU works first permission and remove System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache and make System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache.

You can check this file. This is good. Because clover read this file when booting. So KU is no problem in 10.7~10.11

 

In 10.6, also KU works first permission then remove System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/ all files. And make Only System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extenstion.kext. i surely checked it.

 

 

Yes. I know Extention.kext file is Snow leopard Cache file.

 

Long time a go, when booting SL, chameleon bootloader read this file, when end Setup Asistant, put in kext file throughout KU. Because Chameleon Bootloader doesnt have fly to binary patch and inject kexts. Should place patched kexts in Extra/ or S/L/E. So extensions.kext files is no problem.

 

Clover bootloader read Extentions file. But we cant use Clover Features(Asus AICPUM, KextToPatch, others) with Normal boot. If like cameleon bootloader, i put "patched kext" in S/L/E. Extensions.kext load is no problem.

 

So, Clover needs System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache files.

 

Can you add this command for 10.6 to use clover bootloader?

 

First i think clover issue. But my think is wrong. I sent many times. Also can see clover discussion thread my history about it.

 

We need terminal command in 10.6.x, after put kext in s/l/e throughout KU.

 

Thanks in advanced
