Thanks for creating and posting this kext.  I now have my laptop card reader working.

 

I believe I have the Realtek 0x522710ec card reader in my HP 350 G2 laptop.

Hi folks!

 

little update:

 

I'm working on the power management support, so that you call can put your laptops in suspend/resume.

Nothing is crashing but the driver is not calling my save/resume state routine, and I'm not sure why yet.

if someone wants to help with testing, here's the latest (debug) build of this thing.

let me know if you see the text "rtsx_softc::setPowerState" in the dmesg log output.

 

For the record my machine is a X240 thinkpad.

List of supported ID's:  0x520910EC 0x522710EC 0x522910EC 0x522A10EC 0x524910EC 0x528610EC 0x528710EC 0x528910EC

If yours is different try adding it manually to plist and then report.

 

thanks!

Wooooo! Works for my 0x522A10EC out of the box. Eject button in finder now working and no more kernel panics on physical ejection.

 

Obviously still not working after sleep but I've taken your advice and am using kextload and kextunload for the time being and to be honest that's fine with me.

 

Cheers Sinetek, will look forward to more betas and eventually a final version. Keep up the good work :)

Sinetek, do you have a version of this kext that will work in El Capitan.  

 

I have a second HP laptop that has the same Realtek card reader  0x522710ec, but it had too many other issues when I tried to upgrade it to MacOS Sierra so it needs to stay on El Capitan.

 

Thanks for your great work on this kext.

Hi Sinetek,

 

Great job! But it doesn't work on my Lenovo T540P. I notice the status of the sd card in console.app. When I inserted the card, rtsx shows "card ejected" and when I rejected the card, rtsx shows "card inserted". 

 

Is there any easy solution about this issue?

 

Thanks,

James

The chip in your laptop is the 5227, same as in my X240. I have seen this a bunch of times, could you try a few different cards, and try shutting down power completely and rebooting.

Thanks for your great work. But the reader not working properly (0x520910EC). Kext loaded, but card is not loading.

 

it seams to recognize the card, but there are errors (console details):

My PCIE-Card reader is RTS5209, it doesn't work with your kext.

This is the log.

Hi Sinetek,

 

Great work so far buddy ... theres been a huge gap in running osx on laptops that use PCIe bus for SD card reader's and your project is looking like it can fill that gap. Its very encouraging to read that some people are having reasonable success with your kext even at this early stage of the project.

 

I wish you all the best with the project it am happy to help test and supply feedback for you  ....

 

I just tried it on a new laptop hackingtosh i'm currently working ... its seems to have yet another new Realtek SD Card Reader / variant 

 

Vendor ID: 10EC (VID)

Device ID: 525A (PID)

 

post-861268-0-43868100-1490876790_thumb.jpg

 

I did add the PID-VID it to the appropriate line in info.plist in your kext but it failed to work.

Would appreciate if you could add this one to your ever growing list 

 

Cheers

Jay

Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate it since it takes a lot of energy to make it happen, and I've been busy with an NVME driver. I love open source and every driver we release for hackintoshes are a step in this direction, perhaps. Insanelymac has a good community though from what I see.
I'll see what I can do for your chip. Maybe I can take some of the extra support that has been added in NetBSD and include them, since I'm using a base of OpenBSD for the driver and SDMMC core. Apple's OS itself has no conception of SD cards since they use exclusively USB abstraction chips to do that work.
 

 

And here's the sources:  https://github.com/sinetek/Sinetek-rtsx

 

It's a bit messy and not in the state I would like it to be, but that's nothing unfixable

Sinetek, Thanks for the great job.

 

I found patch for my SD reader Vendor ID: 10EC (VID); Device ID: 525A (PID), but I don`t know Xcode well and can`t apply this part of code to your project.

Can somebody help me with this job?

Thanks in advance

that's for Linux. I can't do much until the openbsd or netbsd driver is updated to support your chip.

Hello, I'm afraid my kext won't load either. At first I had an error telling me about a kext signature validation error and dependency failures, but I went to the Info.plist and changed (com.apple.kpi.bsd, com.apple.kpi.iokit, com.apple.kpi.libkern, and com.apple.kpi.mach), their values from 16.4 to 15.0 and that was resolved. But I still have the kext signature validation error (Code -67030). Please, can someone lend a hand?


I have also checked if I have disabled SIP, I did.

I have Intel Pcie sd host controller can you make it with your kext?

I think you didn't push the changes of post 43 yet, right?
