WORKING Solution for Marvell Yukon 2 88E8040 Fast Ethernet!

158 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

ok, so OS X upgraded to 10.5.7 without any more (noticeable) problems, but the ethernet remains undetected. I installed the original kext again from the first post in this topic and now the AppleYukon2.kext is listed in the Extensions section of profiler, but still no network card detected.

 

Same thing happens with the 88E8048.kext i found in the forum topic threads, and for combinations of IOPCIFamilt.kext with the above.

 

My vendorID/deviceID string of 0x435A11AB is in the IOPCIPrimaryMatch of the info.plist (by default - didn't bother HEXediting it manually this time since it seems to be in there). Error:

 

AppleYukon2: 00000000,00000000: sk98osx_dnet - AllocIOInterruptHandler - Failed to Allocate MSI Interrupt

 

All is as it should be in BIOS and the card is found and working in Windows XP. Since everyone else with 88E8040 gets this to work, im wondering if my 48 has issues, or I could have done something to break it. Bummer :(

 

Perhaps I could try the whole thing from the beginning with default 10.5.7 kexts, and try to make it work with files you suggest? After 2 days of this, the whole process has left me a bit unsure of myself (do I have original IOPCIFamily/IONetworkingFamily/AppleYukon2 kexts right now? i just dont know any more. lol)

 

</crazy>

 

EDIT - hmm fresh install of OSX detects the card as 40??? but 48 in windows??? wtf

UPDATE:

88E8040 working OOTB on 10.5.7 final aka 9J61

 

FOR 88E8040T USE INFO.PLIST FROM KERNEL EXTENSION IN FIRST POST!

Hi Adam,

 

Perhaps you are the only one who can help. I have a HP Mini 2149 HD Display(1366 x 768) running Boot132 10.5.7 Retail MacOS DVD Installation but the Gigabit Mavell Yukon just not working.

 

Have tried your latest IONetworking drivers and Apple2Yukon but still not working and spent many hours to make a prefect and compact MacBook Pro Mini, lights seems normal and working but no new Ethernet card from the Network. VendorID is 436c, perhaps this is the new one?

 

Please kindly help as seems working fine, WiFi, HDA, fan etc except the Ethernet and may be the sleep.

 

Thanks a million here!!

Hello All,

 

I have had my Marvell Yukon 88E80040 N/w card working for about a month time by installing the kext from the Adam's first post but for some unknown reason now it has stopped working all of sudden though I did not make any changes/update(s) to the stable Hackintosh. I am running 10.5.5.

 

I have tried removing the kext and re-installing all over again but with no luck..

 

Looking for any suggestion or idea(s). I want that o to be working again.

 

Also have any of you faced the similar phenomenon?

 

Thanks in advance for your suggestion(s)

Hi Joseph Zhan,

 

I decided to make an update even though 10.5.7 supports OOTB our 88E8040.

There's still a reason to exist for this kext.

I'll make it from scratch with all known (to me at least) working Device IDs and based upon the 9L16 kext.

:)

 

@who am i:

 

I noticed there are many people with these "symtoms" or their device isn't even recognized!

It should work as we've got the same laptop "XPS M1530" (great choice,indeed :) )

Give me a bit of time and I'll try to make a new revision of this driver...

Hi Adam,

 

 

 

Thanks for your kindest helps and I will keep checking for the new update.

 

I checked from the OSX Tools and the Device ID should be "436c". I started reinstall the HP Mini 2140 from the scratch yesterday again and this time not to copy the files/settings/applications from my MSI Wind. I think the only one issue to be resolved should be the Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet and may be the sleep issue also as I still haven't check.

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Joseph

Hello Adam, Thanks for your time and effort that you will be putting this to get it working. Moreover I tried to rectify this problem and found that My MAC addresss has been changed automatically to 00:11:22:33:44:55 (Though I didn't make any changes to the stable 10.5.5) I'll try to change the MAC address using Hex Edit and will try to see if that works. I'll do that tonight and will keep you posted. Meanwhile If you come up with something, please do let me know... TIA cheers..!!!

Hello Everyone,

First of all, sorry for my bad english as it's not my native language.

 

I have a few questions about this:

 

First of all, will it work on this release:

http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4702854/Xx...Universal_Final

??

Is it a good one?

 

And, will it work on 80E8040 Fast Ethernet port?

 

And, I'm really noob on this, so how do I install these ktext? And which should I download? My Vendor ID is 11AB and my Device ID is 4354.

 

Could anyone help me? I would be VERY happy!!

 

All the best,

givemeanick

 

EDIT: My specs:

 

Intel C2D 7300; Sapphire HD 2600 PRO 512MB DDR2; ABIT I45D(MotherBoard); Hitachi SATA II 16MB Cache 500GB 7200RPM; I have both mouse and keyboard on USB and my DVD drive is SATA.

Hi,

 

finally I found a solution for the Marvell Yukon 2 88E8040 Fast Ethernet Device.

The key is Leopard 10.5.7 9J22. In this build there's an updated version of the IONetworkingFamily.kext exactly like in Snow Leopard 10A261 , but the Snow Leopard kernel extension DOESN'T work in Leopard.

 

And yesterday,I installed Leopard 10.5.7 9J22 and tada... my Ethernet port works.

 

Please report if the 9J22 kext works in older stable releases and if all dependencies are covered.

If not please tell me and I'll add the missing kernel extension(s).

 

Here's the proof:

71039462.th.png

 

Sorry,the screenshot is in German , even though I'm not German,but it's the language I speak the best.

 

Hope it works. The kernel extension is attached here. AppleYukon2.zip

 

UPDATE: Here's a new modified kext including 88E8040T support and corrected Info.plist device name AppleYukon2new.zip

 

UPDATE 2:The Marvell Yukon 2 88E8040 is working perfectly (excl. MAC address) in 10.5.7 9J61.

The 88E8040T doesn't work OOTB,but works with using the Info.plist from my AppleYukon2.kext

(the updated one).

 

For a correct MAC address follow Slice instructions :

 

MAC address fix - thx to Slice

 

I'm very happy about any feedback.

 

Greetings from Czech Republic,

 

Adam

Okay, I must be missing something here so hopefully someone can help me. I have a Samsung N120 with an Airport Extreme card and 2GB RAM, but the rest is unmodified. I installed iAtkos v7 and upgraded to 10.5.8. I have a Marvell 8E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller [11ab:4354] (rev 13) that I can't get working. I've tried installing the Yukon2 kext, even after modifying the MAC address with TextEdit to match my card. I had some Realtek drivers installed so I've even tried removing them to avoid conflicts. I'm not totally lost because the Airport Extreme card works, but I'd really like to have Ethernet for faster downloads.

 

Thanks.

I have got my laptop back :D

 

Now I only gotta install Snow Kitty and I hope it will be possible to make the same kext for Snow Leopard.

Just add something to the Plist...

 

I might also try to fix the damn MAC address.

HI,

I have a Notebook Toshiba U400-P1801 with Yukon 88E8040T (dev_4355)

I've tried the solutions that you said on this thread and i've only seen on the profile but not in the newtwork (system preferences)

Also i've tried to use IOPCIFamily (ver. 2.6.3) and the same result.

 

Could you tell me how could I make it work?

 

My system is OS X 10.6.2

 

Thankss

Toshiba Satellite A300 1EC - Marvell Yukon 8040T under 10.5.5 works perfectly, great job ;) Doesn't work under 10.6.2. Any solution?
