GenericUSBXHCI USB 3.0 driver for OS X with source

920 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I uploaded v1.2.5 that works on both OS 10.8.5 and 10.9.  It is functionally the same as 1.2.5d5.

 

For Intel Series 7 chipsets (Z77, X79, etc), you should use "-gux_defer_usb2" kernel flag, as the bios sometimes causes conflicts.  This was mentioned several times in the thread.

Thanks Z,

Just want to say so far so good on 10.8.5. I have become quite dependent on this driver so thanks for updating, i couldn't go to 10.8.5 until USB 3.0 worked.

Cheers!

ML 10.8.5, updated to GenericUSBXHCI.kext v1.2.5 - worked initially, but stopped working after one reboot. Didn't make any changes since that I can recall. 
 
Is there any documentation I can provide to help?
 
 
Just tried 1.2.6. No difference.

 

Hi,

 

well zenith 432, I can confirm this ticket apoorv. Tested with Intel Chipset Series 7 (Panther Point) and got the same result. I tried the kernel-flag (which wasn't necessary before), but no success.

I also tried 1.2.5 and 1.2.6d1

 

Anyway, keep up the good work :-)

Try a clean reinstall and rebuild kernelcache.

tar xvf GenericUSBXHCI_1.2.5.tar.gz
sudo chown -R 0:0 GenericUSBXHCI.kext
SLE=/System/Library/Extensions
sudo /bin/rm -rf $SLE/GenericUSBXHCI.kext
sudo /bin/mv GenericUSBXHCI.kext $SLE
sudo kextcache -system-caches
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

Edit: Oh, and if using 10.9DPx, you need to update the allowed version for GenericUSBXHCI in
/System/Library/Extensions/AppleKextExcludeList.kext/Contents/Info.plist
It only allows up to 1.2.4, so newer versions may be getting blacklisted.

well zenith 432, I can confirm this ticket apoorv.

Hi again,

 

just did what zenith432 wrote (removed the kext / rebuild the caches / reboot / installed again /rebuild the caches / reboot).

 

Well, the ports are still not recognized like before. The Driver is loaded, but behaves like the Apple Driver, when I do not load GenericUSB, which means: Bus is recognized, but non of my USB devices is mounted or recognized.

 

(I'm on 10.8.5)

GenericUSBXHCI (with -gux_defer_usb2) work only when I skip caches, after normal reboot kext is loaded but doesn't work (1.2.4, 1.2.5).

This fixed my USB 3.0 (xHCI) on a Z77m-D3H (rev 1.0).

 

Thanks so much! Now my iPhone charges twice as fast with the extra operating current :D

There is still a problem in 10.8.5. If we want working GeericUSBXHCI we must boot with rebulding cache or with some device in USB 3.0. The same for Z77A-G45 and P8Z77-V PRO Thunderbolt.

Guys how do I edit this flag: "-gux_defer_usb2" in "org.chameleon.Boot.plist"? is as follows: <key> Kernel </ key> _ <string>-gux_defer_usb2 </ string>? I'm using 10.8.5 ML and USB 3.0 ports do not work.

Thanks friend! Now you can tell me how I edit this kext here to work also in the Mavericks? Follows the local kext: On OS 10.9, when installing GenericUSBXHCI, you need to edit the file /System/Library/Extensions/AppleKextExcludeList.kext/Contents/Info.plist and make sure GenericUSBXHCI is allowed up to the version you install.

 

Valeu amigo! Agora você pode me dizer como eu edito essa kext aqui pra funcionar também no Mavericks? Segue o local da kext: On OS 10.9, when installing GenericUSBXHCI, you need to edit the file /System/Library/Extensions/AppleKextExcludeList.kext/Contents/Info.plist and make sure GenericUSBXHCI is allowed up to the version you install.

That's right, just that I do not know where to edit the lines in the file "info.plist" the kext "AppleKextExcludeList" where I add ID information on my USB device.

I've never seen that kext but it sounds to me like you need to find GenericUSBXHCI.kext in the info.plist inside and then add the version number of the one you have installed so that it doesn't get blacklisted. If it isn't on the list then you don't need to do anything I guess.

I found a serious bug that would cause KPs with any USB3 drive that has a certain high-performance feature called streams endpoints.  If you've been experiencing KPs or freezes, get v1.2.6d2 and retry.

This fixed the system freeze when lacie disk is attached! bravo!!

Anyone ?? Really really need help here

If you installed kexts that are causing problems, find them in System/Library/Extensions and delete them. Repair Permissions and reboot.

You probably don't want to just delete those. They're installed by OS X. If you are going to patch, modify ory replace kexts in S/L/E, always back them up so you can put them back if you mess something up. What OS are you on?

Try booting -x (safe mode) and see if your mouse is usable.

      Since when I updated to 10.13.6 (and possibly .5 since i don't use usbs that often) my usb 3.0 drives don't work on usb 3.0 ports or hubs and work only if inserted slowly and get recognized as usb 2.0s in that case (480mb/s in sysinfo) and if i try to put my hackintosh to sleep the screen turns black for a second and then it takes me to the login screen instead of going to sleep, this usb issue happened to me on 10.13.2/3 too, is there a way to fix it ? Thank you

      Looks like after the 10.12.6 update something reset in my USB subsystem and now I am no longer able to reliably use almost half of my USB ports. This is across both USB 2.0 and 3.x ports. It looks like the ports re-organized themselves and I am hitting limits again though I am not sure why (granted I have 4 USB hubs attached to my computer in addition to the internal ones). I guess I havent been keeping up on grooming my edits and patches since .3 so it was bound to happen. [i really hope the USB subsystem is better in 10.13]
       
      Any assistance would be appreciated. I have attached my ACPI dumps as patched by Clover, the original unpatched dumps, my current config.plist, my patched ssdt.aml, and an IOREG USB dump.
