i get all the time:

chown: /System/Library/Extensions/webdav_fs.kext: Operation not permitted

 

and then:

You must be running as root to update system kext caches.

 

 

But i'm the admin and the root 

I do the sudo nvram boot-args=kext-dev-mode=1 as well but nothing happens.

I have a 3.1 mac pro without wifi from factory and yosemite 10.10.5

Hello , thanks for this guide.
I read all the pages but ,although somebody managed to run  my same usb dongle : EP-N8531 , I can not.

On http://pcidatabase.com/vendor_details.php?id=728i checked my device, it does have a  Ralink RT2870 

I am on El Capitan 10.11.3 , I disabled SIP,  but although the dongle is recognised it seems "blind" : it can not see any wifi around me.

I have been trying to get the ethernet to work on my Yosemite Hackintosh but i have tried almost everything and still it refuses to work. My onboard LAN card is not working so I have a PCI lan card from D LINK which the Hackintosh refuses to detect but it works flawlessly in Windows. So I had to opt for a USB wifi Dongle. I tried to get the TP Link or the D-link ones but the hardware versions of either of them which were available were old ones for which the Manufacturer websites don't have drivers for so I avoided those and found a dongle from Tenda (Model W311MI) which has a Ralink RT5370 Chipset https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Tenda_W311MI. I have tried using the drivers on the Tenda website and as usual it doesn't work. So I tired using all the ways on this Forum post and I was only able to get it to detect in my system prefs and also somewhat in the DWA 140 preference panel. But it always shows "No Device Connected' Can somebody please help me out with this. I have everything working surprisingly smooth on my AMD Hackintosh with everything else working except the internet. I tired following the process in the first post only by which I was able to get the DWA 140 Preference pane running. I have installed the KEXT using Kext wizard, kext utility and also manually rebuilding the cache and permissions but still no detection. I cant even get it to detect the dongle in the Network Preferences. Please guide me  :(

It should work if you follow this tutorial:

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/299948-usb-wifi-updated-ralinkmediatek-rt2870-rt2770-rt3x7x-rt537x-rt5572/?do=findComment&comment=2064234

 

Verify if your kext is version 5.0.1.22 in S/L/E !

 

And the Dlink prefpane 2.6.4 is optionnal but recommended !

 

You find everything in the folder attached !

 

Good luck

 

attachicon.gifFolder for v5.0.1.22.zip

 

 

This was my last try to install the USB dongle and it worked. It worked flawlessly. Thanks a lot. :thumbsup_anim:

It was that I need the Driver version 5.0.1.22. and NOT 5.0.0.27 and also the D Link wireless Utility from the Quoted post attachment.

How can I fix the panic kernel?

Seems to me that there is a conflict with USB.kexts

 

So I suggest you to put out any USB divice and try again and after boot insert only the mouse and keyboard and rebuild kext and probably kernelcache and reboot then with USB essentiels.

 

I read on other topics that on some configs USB is really tricky and give sometime bad headache ! 

since OSX 10.11 ..........

Hi!

I have an External Wi-Fi USB MTK7501 and my OS is El Capitan 10.11.5. I didn't manage to use Wi-Fi and to condivide this device to my MBP. I tried to install Every package I found.. But they add some apps (mediatek, ralink wifi manager, etc) but they never work! I click on them and they don't launch.

I'm very worried... Will I ever use the wifi connection?

I slipped the newer Yosemite driver into an older D-link DWA-130 driver package, this got things working smoothly for me. Wifi turns on at login and resumes after sleep.

This worked for me to get it recognized and light comes on onmy Wi-Pi from Element14 which windows indicates is using Ralink drivers.  Problem is it disconnects maybe 10 seconds after connecting.  I can pull up 1 page, then it will disconnect again. Any ideas on how to fix that?

Hi :-) TP-Link TL-WN727N v1 (Ralink RT-3070)، Sierra (OS X 10.12), Wi-Fi (kext and preference pane) is working, but after every boot it require opening preference pane and reactivating added SSID from drawer to connect it, any working auto connect solution for Sierra?

 

* Anyone can help with editing MiniTaskUSB-DWA140.app to add default SSID.

Got it working, I'll share details if anyone need it.

YES, if you would be kind and share ALL the details as many of us here can't get it working.

 

Thanks, IAN. :)

Sure :-) I have TP-Link TL-WN727N v1, here are my steps to automate Wi-Fi connectivity

 

1. Files I used:

2. Installed BearExtender-5.4

3. Installed RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext (I use Kext Utility to install kexts) extracted from RTUSB_D2870-4.2.9.2_UI-4.0.9.6_2013_11_29.dmg

3. Copied RalinkAirport.app & Exhaust.app to \Applications

4. Rebooted

5. Added my preferred SSID to WirelessUtility.app and activated it

6. Removed WirelessUtility from Settings>Users & Groups>Login Items and added RalinkAirport.app

7. Added WirelessUtility.app to Exhaust and set it to 'Quit after 15 seconds'

 

Thats it!

Very well !

 

It works for my cheap WIFI USB pen based on RT2870 chipset.

 

DWA-140 Prefpanel works !

 

Here is the DWA-140 miniTask bar App with signal icon changed for a better Look ....

 

Remember :

Prefpane --> /System/Library/PreferencePanes/

 

DWA-140 App --> /Applications

Hi guys,

I'm a novice here, I've found this forum, looking a solution for starting a WiFi dongle.

 

What I have:

- a chinese WiFi dongle from Ebay, its visible in the system  as "802.11n WLAN PID=0x5370, VID=0x148f".

- OSX 10.11.5 El Capitan.

- mac mini (it has a poor WiFi, and I want to use external one)

 

What I did:

- first I tried to download drivers from http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads1/downloads/but it looks like, there are only for old OS. Result: WiFi not working. 

- tried to install BearExtender-Turbo-b6 and BearExtender-5.4. Result: the same

- installed RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext using kext install utility. Result: the same. I checked this kext, is has proper IDs inside.

- I've found that the latest OSX cannot start unsigned kexts, than I've found a SIPUtility 1.0.1 and tried to activate the CSR_ALLOW_UNTRUSTED_KEXT flag. Result: I getting a error, it looks like this operation is not permitted on last OSX.

 

So, the question is, is there a way to start RT5370 dongle on 10.11.5?

I know, is was working nice on older OS versions, but it looks like, there are some problems with the latest.

 

Thanks.

I rarely comment on forums, but this one has been so useful that I want to help out anyone else with my external Wifi dongle- the Belkin F6D4050 v2 (product id=0x935b, vendor id=0x050d). I'm using Yosemite 10.10.1.

 

1. Get your pid and vid from system information, and make sure it is the same

2. Download the modified "RT2870USBWirelessDrivers" from this post and drag the contents of the "Mavericks" folder to desktop (still works with Yosemite)

3. Right click and click "show package contents"

4. Open contents/macos/info.plist

5. Search for "belkin"

6. Where it says "Belkin - F5D 8053", modify the id product and idvendor integers to match those stated above

7. Save and kext wizard it/whatever kext tool you use

8. Download Bearextender from here (don't bother with preference panes, it doesn't work)

9. Plug in your belkin after boot and voila!

 

This post has been most useful; amazingly it still works 7 years later with an updated driver file. Hopefully you can use the cheap dongle bundled with your even cheaper Belkin router with OS X and avoid buying a new wifi card.

      Hello everyone!
       
      I am fairly new to the world of Hackintosh. I recently moved my previous build into a smaller form factor. However, I am running into a series of problems with the USB ports on the new case and the new motherboard.
       
      Part List:
      - i7-7700k
      - Gigabyte Z270N Gaming 5
      - 16GB Trident Z RGB 3200 MHz
      - Sapphire RX 470
      - NZXT Kraken x62
      - NZXT H200 for the case
       
      Everything in the Hackintosh works just like it did before, nothing changed in the hardware department other than the motherboard (previously a gigabyte Z20X Ultra) and the case.
      This motherboard does not have any USB 2.0 ports in the back, there is only one header on the board, currently taken by the Kraken x62. The rest of the ports are all either USB 3.1 Gen1 or USB 3.1 Gen2, and the front of the case has 3.1 Gen1 ports as well.
       
      This is my current problem:
      When I plug something into either the type A or type C Gen2 ports, it works fine as a normal USB 3.x device with normal speeds, but when I plug something into any other USB port, it only works at lower 2.0 speeds. This is a big problem for me, since I have a few external devices that need the 3.0+ speeds and I don't know what to do.
      I tried to follow many different guides on how to patch USB ports, remove the limits, etc... But nothing seems to work.
       
      Please someone help me!

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac.
       
      Features:
        - Simple to use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process
        - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside of its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers)
        - You can use any volume you want that can be erased and is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will format it to make it GUID!)
        - Works on Mac OS recovery, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery, and you can use TINU to install macOS too.
        - All vanilla, the bootable macOS installers created with this tool are 100% vanilla, just like you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in the terminal
        - Open source, you will know what this program does on your computer and also you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code
        - Does not require to do anything of special first, just open the program, and make sure you have a USB drive pulugged in and that you have a macOS installer app in the system.
        - No need to go in disk utility first, TINU can format your drive/partition for you
        - Uses recent and more modern APIs and SDKs and Swift 3 language
        - Transparent graphics style available (use alt + s on the keyboard or View->Use transparent style)
        - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without needing for an update
        - Advanced section, to customize your bootable macOS installer
       
        Features that are planned for some future versions:
        - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool (TINU can already mount EFI partitions from version 2.0, but a dedicated section which allows to mount every EFI partition in the system will be added)
        - Install clover and configure clover
        - Install kexts inside the kexts folder of clover
        - Clover drivers customization
        - Use custom dsdt in clover
        - integrated pre-made clover config templates database from a remote and open repository
        - Support for other languages, at least Italian
       
      Rquirements:
       - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer)
       - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of at least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer
       - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive in your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media)
       
      Download:
        - You can download the pre-made and code signed binary from the releases section of the github repo: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases
        - Or you can just build your own copy by just downloading the source code and then using Xcode (requires Xcode 8):  https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU

      Hello all,

      I have successfully gotten my Hackintosh working 99 percent. The remaining issue that I am running into is that my system will randomly kernel panic upon a user issued shutdown or reboot WHEN I have either a usb sound card or usb headset plugged into any of my USB ports (both 2.0 and 3.0). If I remove the headset, it will power down with no issues. Does anyone have any suggestions?

      My system is as follows:
      MacOS 10.14 Mojave
      Gigabyte H370 HD3
      8400 i5 Coffee Lake
      Radeon RX 580 sound card

      I have the internal audio disabled. I have also attached my config.plist file.

      I have the following Kexts installed:

      FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext
      USBInjectAll.kext
      FakeSMC.kext
      WhateverGreen.kext
      IntelMausiEthernet.kext
      XHCI-300-series-injector.kext

      Lilu.kext


      Thank you.

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.
