GenericUSBXHCI USB 3.0 driver for OS X with source


929 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I made a build for OS 10.9 DP1 to try and solve the superspeed port detection issue.  Please let me know if it works.

 I couldn't find this build anywhere :o

 

Right now I am stuck because I burnt Mavericks install to my USB 2.0 Key and before, to be able to boot the install from USB in 10.8.2, I needed GenericUSBXHCI and it no longer works with Mavericks :S Unable to boot the install :\ Still waiting for root device.

 

I tried to use USB kexts from 10.8.2 where GenericUSBXHCI was working with, but no success.

 

Hopefully you will figure out soon :)

This is really great stuff, my external Seagate Expansion Drive works like a charm. There is only one downside: Every time I try to access my old USB Scanner (Agfa SnapScan) while the USB3 external disk is connected the system freezes. This happens either after startup or restart when you log in as a user with the scanner connected or if you connect the scanner while the system is running  :(

I have been able to capture one kernel panic (see below), which indicates that TWAINBridge is the culprit, but I have no clue what is happening. I have also installed TWAIN SANE from Mattias Ellert (http://www.ellert.se/twain-sane/) incl. libusb (http://libusb.sourceforge.net/).

Strange enough, if the external drive is connected via USB2, everything works without issues.

 

I am running 10.8.4 on a GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 with F12 Bios and Version 1.2.4 of GenericUSBXHCI.kext.

 

What would be a reasonable next step to further investigate ?

 

[EDIT] Removed TWAIN SANE and no more freezes. Unfortunately the scanner is not working without.

Hello man! Try install Maverick with this kext from 10.8.4 12E55(IOUSBFamily.kext) only. Good luck. Works for me. I had still waiting and this solved my problem.

Let's wait for news! 

 

cheers!

 wow im being lucky lol, I succeeded to boot the install from my USB key xD I played with XHCI in my unlocked Bios and for some reason, OSX successfully used my USB Ports. It is only a glitch or something because it only worked once, I can't boot the install anymore but at least it is installed and SATA works xD

 

Edit : I just remembered, it is definitively a glitch because only USB Key worked, not even the mouse xD

  1. Really attaching the KP.
  2. When TWAIN SANE is not installed and it doesn't freeze, run 'xhcdump slots', and the 'xhcdump endpoints #' on the slot # for the scanner and upload the output.

Hi :) 

 

Do you think you will be able to figure out why GenericUSBXHCI doesn't work in 10.9 ? Do you need to wait for the sources or they are released?

 

Btw thanks for making this awesome kext, I wish I could help but I don't think i'm skilled enough in C++ for such as project :/

I uploaded a build of 1.2.4 for OS 10.9 DP1.  It's in the same folder as general 1.2.4 (see post #1).  Tested that it works.

It work!  :thumbsup_anim:

Which GenericUSBXHCI file did you use on that link?

AWESOME!!! Having some troubles here, everything works (USB 2,0 Key, USB 3,0 external hard drive, etc..) but my USB mouse is not working. It is well reconized but my cursor wont move. At least my touchpad works :P (I have an Alienware m17x R4, dunno if it changes something).

 

I was about to say it must be my hackintosh that was messed up but same in the install :( I used myHack 3,2 beta 8 to prepare my USB, could the error be from there?

 

Thanks!

Sorry I forgot to attach the KP.

When running xhcdump the scanner does not show up as it is connected to one of the USB2 sockets via a hub (USB1 only). All USB2 sockets on my board are served from the Z68 Chipset, the USB3 is served by Etron EJ168.

I have attached the results anyway including Apples System Report and IORegistryExplorer data.

Micky1979: It's Intel Series 7 - and if the problem is instant-wake-on-sleep, try booting with -gux_defer_usb2.  Did you experience this same problem on same hardware with 10.8.4?

 

jamesst20: Try connecting the mouse to an ehci port - check if it works from there.

 

Inspector42: Your scanner is connected to the ehci topology - so the crash has nothing to do with GenericUSBXHCI.  In the KP screen it looks like it's crashing directly from user-land TWAINBridge driver due to a page-fault.  (Though I'm not quite sure how that can happen...)  The only thing you have connected to xhci is something called "Expansion Desk".

No, the Sleep worked fine in 10.8.4 with no kernel flags (which is why I have spoken), and with many attached devices (USB Stick and USB HD). I'll do the test later with -gux_defer_usb2 (Pandora. .... coming really soon)

 

Just to let you know, Pandora will install the two builds, according to Os detected  for Lion >= 10.7.5 and ML, and your separate build for Mavericks. The Sparkel  software will help us for immediate updates!

 

Thanks for the reply and only the best for you! :)

 

 

 

EDIT

 

In 10.8.4 I have removed all the patches "Mac like" into the DSDT for  devices XHC (to obtain a proper function):

 

 

 

 

before

 
        Device (XHC1)
        {
            Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
            {
                Store (Package (0x0F)
                    {
                        "device-id", 
                        Buffer (0x04)
                        {
                            0x31, 0x1E, 0x00, 0x00
                        }, 


                        "built-in", 
                        Buffer (One)
                        {
                            0x00
                        }, 


                        "AAPL,clock-id", 
                        Buffer (One)
                        {
                            0x01
                        }, 


                        "device_type", 
                        Buffer (0x05)
                        {
                            "XHC1"
                        }, 


                        "AAPL,current-available", 
                        0x04B0, 
                        "AAPL,current-extra", 
                        0x02BC, 
                        "AAPL,current-in-sleep", 
                        0x03E8, 
                        Buffer (One)
                        {
                            0x00
                        }
                    }, Local0)
                DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
                Return (Local0)
            }

 

 

Now only:

 

 

    Device (XHC1)
        {
         
         }

I left similar for EHC (different current and with fake ID from real Retina Mac, sorry from a real Mac).

 

...This part under Scope (_GPE):

 

 

        Method (_L0D, 0, NotSerialized)
        {
            Notify (\_SB.PCI0.EHC1, 0x02)
            Notify (\_SB.LID0, 0x02)
            Notify (\_SB.PCI0.EHC2, 0x02)
            Notify (\_SB.PCI0.XHC1, 0x02)
            Notify (\_SB.PWRB, 0x02)
            Notify (\_SB.LID0, 0x02)
            Notify (\_SB.PCI0.HDEF, 0x02)
        }

to obtain the Sleep in 10.8.4. In Mavericks does not work...

I only have USB 3 Ports on my laptop and it is why your kext is as important as FakeSMC xD

 

No USB --> No wifi usb adapter --> no internet

No USB --> No install booting --> Still waiting for root device

No USB --> No fun :(

Thanks xD

 

Nevermind, wrong permissions on kext IOUSBFamility.kext after having replaced it from Windows :#

Hi Zenith432,

 

this is what confused me in the first place. I also would have expected that the scanner using EHCI is not impacted by the XHCI driver. What makes it even more confusing is, that if I attach a USB2-HD to the USB3 ports of the EJ168 the scanner works (see attached files), attaching a USB3-HD (the famous "Expansion Desk") to the same port causes the KP. The only connection between the two I can think of is "libusb" (http://libusb.sourceforge.net/), which when activated through "TWAINBridge" not only polls or otherwise accesses the EHCI side but XHCI driver as well and is not prepared for the response ultimately leading to the crash of "TWAINBridge". Any suggestion how I can further narrow that down ? I have scanned the system.log and crash-reporter logs already but don't really know what to look for, there are no obvious messages related to the crash.

 

[EDIT] Just stumbled across this for "libusb 0.1", which is used by TWAINSANE. Would that support my theory ?

 

Disadvantages compared to libusb-1.0

  • Does not provide isochronous endpoint I/O
  • Does not provide asynchronous I/O

If you still have that problem with failed sleep under 10.9DP1, could you try 1.2.5d2 and let me know if it makes any difference?

No, the Sleep worked fine in 10.8.4 with no kernel flags (which is why I have spoken), and with many attached devices (USB Stick and USB HD).
