Mac App Store access with NullEthernet.kext

hi all

 

I really need some step by step help, as I'm a complete nube to this...

 

i have a wacom companion 2 that i have successfully managed to follow the guide on here to install Yosemite.

After much scratching of my head and research I've now got my usb wifi working ... however for the life of me i can't get my app store to accept my login...

Ive tried in earnest to follow everything on here, guides on youtube and google...

 

I have installed the .kext files using kext wizard and rebuild everything ... I have placed the ssdt-rmne.aml file in the efi/clover/acpi/patched ... however i don't know/understand what i do with the patch.txt file ... I've installed MaciASL tools ... but thats as far as i get ... all the youtube help I've found uses EFiStudio to bring up ethernet info, but mine has no ethernet info ...

 

the macs system report under ethernet just says ..This computer does not appear to have any PCI Ethernet cards installed.[/size]

Make sure SortedOrder refers to SSDT-RMNE.aml if you're using it.

Make sure you rebuild network interfaces as described in the README.

yeh thats the guide I've been trying to follow I'm either too new this or a bit thick or both ... I'm not getting what  i do with the patch.txt fie 

 

In order to cause the kext to be loaded, you need to apply the DSDT patch provided in patch.txt. It adds a fake device ‘RMNE’ which the driver will attach to.

i haven't applied  the patch i Placed in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ssdt-X.aml where 'X' is some number that you're not already using for SSDTs.

 

i have reset network interfaces ...

 

in my prefs wifi is connected green but ethernet is orange and still not showing in system report about this mac ?

I have a MacBook Air running El Capitan which has a intermittently functioning WiFi card. Mostly not working and as a result cannot log into App store. Found this forum and have been trying to use the nullethernet.kext as described but having no luck.

 

I ran DPCIManager->PCIList and my wifi card is not showing at all. Because of this I understand I will have to use Clover. I quote your response from post #85:

"
If not, you would need to "hack the Mac"... eg. use a hackintosh bootloader (Clover) that allows you to provide a patched DSDT or SSDT. That's the only way to make the kext load and make the device appear built-in".

 

I downloaded Clover but when I attempt to install it it reports that it is not compatible with my OS. I decided to live dangerously and say install anyway but the installation failed.

 

Not sure what to do at this point. Any guidance/help would be greatly appreciated.

Before you attempt to install Clover to your system, you should get it booting from USB.

So create a Clover USB and test first...

Part of the trick with booting your Mac with Clover is making sure that most all hackintosh features are turned off in Clover. And that any configuration represents your actual Mac data (SMBIOS for example).

I used it to boot my Apple MacBookAir6,2, so I know it is possible, but I did that just for testing, not long term use.

So I should install Clover on a usb device, and then try and boot my laptop from the usb device. Does this usb device have to have the Mac OS on it or will Clover use the OS already installed on my laptop?

The USB would only have Clover UEFI on it.

FYI...

 

Update 2016-12-16

 

A new build is up. This version can be installed without any tweaks to ACPI, and even without a PCI device to attach to. Simply i install NullEthernetForce.kext along with NullEthernet.kext. Read the README for further details.

      Salve a tutti ragazzi,
      Mi sono appena iscritto e innanzi tutto vorrei esprimere la mia gratitudine per l'aiuto offerto. Il mio problema come da titolo riguarda il mio Pavilion Power 15 più precisamente il modello cb015nl. Ho notato che c'era un altro topic su un modello simile ma immagino che anche se i modelli sono simili non è detto che siano compatibili quindi ne ho creato uno per il mio modello. Per arrivare al dunque, sono riuscito ad installare con successo Mojave 10.14 ma ho riscontrato diversi problemi una volta avviato l'OS. Quello che non riesco a far funzionare è l'indicatore della batteria, il power managment (Stop non funziona e la luminosità), la porta ethernet e credo che la scheda wifi sia incompatibile, le gesture del trackpad, e l'audio che con una scheda audio esterna funziona a meraviglia e l'ultimo grosso problema è che non riesco a far partire clover senza la usb di installazione, ho installato clover bootoader sull'hd dove ho mojave ma niente senza la usb mi parte il bootloader di hp/windows. Premetto che sono partito con una copia di mojave scaricata dall'appstore. Vi allego il report di HackInfo sperando che possa essere d'aiuto per il troubleshooting

      Here's my build
      OS: 10.13.6
      CPU: i7-8700k
      MB: MSI Z370i Gaming Carbon AC
      RAM: 16 GB DDR4 Crucial Ballistix

      My internet chipset is Intel I219-V Gigabit LAN controller and I am using version 2.4.0d0 of IntelMausiEthernet.kext.

      I am paying for gigabit down speeds but I am not getting on my hackingtosh. My windows work CPU gets speeds up to 900mb/s but my hackintosh tops out at around 490-510mb/s. It's been like this on 10.13 and 10.13.6. Both machines are not using wi-fi when testing speed, they are both going straight into my router.

      Anybody else have this issue?

      Hey guys, I have a ridiculously convoluted issue. Take a seat.
       
      I am trying to use Logic Pro X on a 2012 Mac Mini I have, but I currently have Snow Leopard OS X 10.6.8, and will need to update to Sierra 10.12. However, I realize I need to update to a newer OS such as El Capitan in order to be able to update to Sierra. Except I cannot sign into the App Store. I am greeted with an error message along the lines of "this computer or device cannot be verified." So I did some digging and it seems to be because my Ethernet port and Wifi don't work. I use a USB Wifi adapter to get around this but now it seems like I finally have to fix it for good so I can get into the App Store to get these updates I need.
       
      In System Preferences > Network, I do not see Ethernet or Wifi listed. Only my USB Wifi Adapter and Firewire. In System Profiler > Hardware > Ethernet Cards, it says, "This computer does not appear to have any PCI Ethernet cards installed."
       
      I'm pulling my hair out over here to get Logic Pro X on this computer, that's all that I really want, and that's all I want this computer to do. If you can help, God bless your soul.
