For some reason my DSDT ruined the usb detection in the back of my computer, deleted it and now everything works great. :thumbsup_anim: 



Hey, I've installed Mavericks GM yesterday and it works great but there's a little problem for some kind of reason the Mac doesn't recognize the USB ports at the back of the computer, the weird part is that it does recognize the ports on the front (2 USB ports). 


Here's my specs:


OS X Mavericks GM (13A603)


Asus P5KR

Intel Core 2 Quad

Nvidia Geforce 275GTX

JMicron JMB363 PATA and SATA controller

Realtek ALC 883 8




I've installed those kexts:


Chimera 2.2.1



VoodooHDA v2.7.3

3rd Party eSata


FakeSMC v5.3.820


Customize pane:


Generate CPU State


Hibernate Mode - Desktop

Use KernelCache

​System Definition - Mac Pro 3,1




IOATAFamily (From for Mavericks)


P5KR DSDT (From DSDT Auto-Patcher)



(BTW the Mac doesn't recognize my disk drive too but it always recognized the USB ports since Leopard)



try use USBBusFix=Yes in or.chameleon.boot.plist


or IOUSBFamily.kext rollback from 10.6, in Pandora app you have
