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.

      Questo è il thread in italiano dedicato alla mia app TINU, l'app open source che ho creato per creare chiavetta di installazione di mac utilizzando il metodo "createinstallmedia".
      Il nome è l'acronimo di TINU Is Not U (Per le regole del forum devo censurare, ma la U si riferisce ad un programma che piu o meno svolge lo stesso scopo che per buoni motivi è bandita su questo sito, il punto del metterlo nel nome sta nel sottolineare che la mia app è totalmente diversa)
      L'app è pensata per essere molto semplice ed immediata da usare (con un interfaccia grafica progettata con criteri e metodi usati in ambito professionale per lo sviluppo di applicazioni utente) e per essere molto solida e stabile che funziona sempre al primo colpo (a differenza di altri tool che conosciamo ...)
       
      A livello funzionale quest'app non è altro che un interfaccia grafica per il metodo da terminale "createinstallmedia" che viene sfrutatto dalla stessa per creare la chiavetta, quindi le chiavette create con TINU sono chiavette al 100% vanilla come se le aveste create dal terminale, l' applicazione, rispatto al metodo da terminale, aggiunge però funzioni utili come il controllo ed il riconoscimento di errori nel processo, la formattazione automatica della chiavetta USB che si sceglie di usare in formato Mac OS Extended (journaled) (detto anche HFS+) con mapatura di partizione GUID, ed anche altre opzioni personalizzabili o disattivabili come l'applicare un icona alla chiavetta di instalalzione.
      Tra gli altri vantaggi troviamo il fatto che permette di creare chiavette utilizzando qualunque applicazione di mac che contiene l'eseguibile "createinstallmedia" inclusi installer delle beta ed installer appena rilasciati, e non richiede di fare cose particolari prima come formattare la chiavetta e cambiare lingua al sistema e puo utilizzare applicazioni di mac che si trovano in varie directory nel sistema e non solo quelle che stanno nella cartella delle applicazioni ed hanno un nome specifico (nota che l'applicazione di installazione di mac deve essere quella interacche pesa diversi gb e non quella da pochi mb che l'app store puo scaricare alcune volte e che non contiene tutto quello che serve per permettere a createinstallmedia di funzionare)
       
      Tra l;e altre cose quest'app è l'unica app di questo genere sviluppata e che continua ad essere sviluppata in Italia ed è anche l'unica completamente open source.
       
      Trovate qui alcuni link utili:
       - Scarica l'app:                                                  https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases
       - Codice sorgente dell'app:                                 https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU
       
       - FAQs (Domande fatte di frequente, in inglese):   https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs
       
       - Thread in inglese su tinu (English thread about TINU): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/326959-tinu-the-macos-install-media-creation-tool-mac-app/
       
      Qui invece ci sono un paio di guide (Anche se l'app è molto facile da usare):
       - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per un hackintosh:                                   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug1yBZybpD4
       - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per creare cheiavette per Mac "originali":    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZOZOUt2ErM
       
       
      Pianifico molte altre nuove funzioni per future versioni dell'app (vedi il thread in inglese per saperne di più)
       
       
      Il supporto a clover in TINU è pianificato per una versione futura, anche se dei protipi a livvello codice per renderlo possibile, sono gia stati sperimentati con successo.
       
      Spero che anche voi del forum italiano aprezzerete questa app come gli utenti del forum inglese, per idee e suggerimenti, siete liberi di esprimervi :-)

      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 Mac OS 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 Mac OS installer apps, it is capable to create a Mac OS installer on a drive 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 also to you some customization features and a better management of the hall macOS isntall media creation process
       
      Allows you to create easily a macOS install media 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 you want to use it on a Mac.
       
      Features:
        - Simple to use UI that allows you to easily start the macOS install media creation process
        - It can work with every Mac OS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside of it's resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers)
        - You can use any drive or partition you want that can be erased and is at least 7 GB of size
        - Works on Mac OS recovery, so you can create a macOS install media from a bootable macOS installer or from the macOs recovery, and you can use TINU to install macOS too.
        - All vanilla, the macOS install medias created with this tool are 100% vanilla, just like you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in the terminal, with also some extra optiona features
        - 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 requires to do anything of special first, just open the program
        - No need to go in disk utility first, TINU can format your drive 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 macOS install media
        - Installer customization: Kernelcache/prelinkedknerel and boot files replacement (a feature that can be handy while dealing with old Macs or with beta installers when you need to mod or change the boot files some times)
        - Clover EFI folder 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 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 device in your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media)   Note that this app is under the GNU GPL v3 license so any reuse of the source code must follow the license's terms   Latest stable TINU release:   Download the app:                                https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases   View the source code:                            https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU       Frequently asked questions about TINU:  https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs     NOTE: if you have problems with your USB installer of 10.13.4 or newer version not being detected by clover you have to use the latest clover and if it still does not detectets your usb installer you have to remove the invivible file called .IAPhysicalMedia located into the root of the usb installer. This issue is caused by a changement in the apple's createinstallmedia, don't blame TINU for that, TINU does only uses the installer creation method from apple, which has been changed by appleitself, causing this problem for hackintosh users some times, this issue should be resolved in the latest versions of clover which will no longer require that you do changements to let your usb dive to be detected, a setting to do this fix automatically in tinu is also present TINU in the adavnced settings, starting from the version 2.0 of the app. I leave also some screenshots as well

      I recently installed High Sierra on my Ryzen system, just to find out how crappy the USB situation really is on AMD systems. The only choice is basically most of your ports flat out not working or GenericUSBXHCI crashing every time you pull out a thumbdrive. So after some trial and error here are my findings.
      The USB ports controlled by the XHCI controller on the SoC worked fine, but the ones attached to the chipset XHCI controller didn't.
      That's when I looked at the log and saw these lines:
      PTXH@00000000: AppleUSBXHCIPCI::createPorts: port 1 unsupported protocol USB 03.10 PTXH@00000000: AppleUSBXHCIPCI::createPorts: failed to allocate port 1 It turns out that for some reason the AppleXHCIPCI driver doesn't support the first two ports on the B350 chipset (made by ASMedia) USB controller. And after the driver fails to allocate port 1 it just stops and doesn't even look at the rest of the ports. So I first tried commenting out the first two ports from the DSDT and that worked and made all the other ports show app in the IOService tree. Than I quickly tested all the USB ports and it turns out that the 2 problematic ports aren't even wired to anything. But instead of editing the DSDT I wanted a cleaner solution, because I don't want to re-edit my DSDT every time I update the BIOS or change some BIOS settings.
       
      So here is my small SSDT that disables the stock PTXH device and adds a new device XHCI, that has all the ports needed for my board (ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS).
      DefinitionBlock ("SSDT-PRIME-B350-PLUS.aml", "SSDT", 1, "APPLE", "tinySSDT", 0x00000006) { External (\_SB_.PCI0.GPP2, DeviceObj) External (\_SB_.PCI0.GPP2.PTXH, DeviceObj) Scope (\_SB_.PCI0.GPP2.PTXH) { Name (_STA, Zero) } Scope (\_SB_.PCI0.GPP2) { Device (XHCI) { Name (_ADR, Zero) Device (RHUB) { Name (_ADR, Zero) // USB3.1 back panel Device (PRT1) { Name (_ADR, 0x5) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, 0x03, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT2) { Name (_ADR, 0x6) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, 0x03, Zero, Zero }) } // USB3.0 front panel Device (PRT3) { Name (_ADR, 0x7) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, 0x03, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT4) { Name (_ADR, 0x8) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, 0x03, Zero, Zero }) } // USB2.0 Device (PRT5) { Name (_ADR, 0x9) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT6) { Name (_ADR, 0xa) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT7) { Name (_ADR, 0xb) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT8) { Name (_ADR, 0xc) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT9) { Name (_ADR, 0xd) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRTA) { Name (_ADR, 0xe) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } } } } } Please note that this is just an example and it most likely needs to be changed for your board.

      Hi everyone,
      I am new, I hope I am posting in the correct forum.
      My specs:
      Processor: Core i5 6500 Skylake 3.2ghz
      Mobo: Gigabyte h170-d3h
      M2SSD: WD Black 256gb PCIe (Mac OSx)
      SSD: Samsung 860 Evo (WIndows 10)
      HDD: WD Blue 1TB
      GPU: Radeon RX 480
      Monitor: BenQ RL2460 24"


      I was able to install High Sierra on a new m2 drive, that I added to the above configuration with windows 10 already installed.
      I had a few issues during install, including the monitor turning off at boot screen.

      Unfortunately, this persists even now. It turns off at about 60% of the progress bar, and to turn it on again I have to unplug/plug back my hdmi.
      Additionally, while all of the usb ports worked during install and while running it out of the clover I had on the usb stick, only the rear ones appear to work now.
      The audio doesn't work either, though I added the correct patch according to my mobo

      Lastly, my other drives are not recognized in the bios anymore. They run fine from boot override but they don't show up in the boot priority (while multiple entries of mac OS do, and they seem to increase in number at every reboot)

      Thanks in advance for the help
