Are you using the first patch I published or have you patched the built-in property?

What is really needed for the Aquantia LAN port situation: a sort of universal driver that works for any of the Aquantia 10, 5, & 2.5 Gb LAN controllers, and that does not require any kind of special Apple firmware flash procedure to be able to work in either: macOS or Windows or Linux. Preferably: the macOS driver would enable functioning in Sierra, High Sierra, El Capitan, and whatever 10.14 ends up being named.

Discussing non-native cards like Small-Tree or Intel X540-T2 is actually offtopic because this thread was created specifically to test those cards which have the potential to work Out of the Box. But now since Out of the Box working cards require a kext patch in clover, it is up to mods to change the title of this thread.

Hi d5aqoep,

 

apologies i I am new to insanely Mac, though long time Mac user.

 

In this context I am not sure what “non-native” means.

 

The SmallTree 10GbE is not just a rebranded Intel x540 it has Apple specific firmware that works in conjunction with OS X specific drivers (kexts). It has long been one of few 10GbE cards available for Mac Pro (ATTO provide an alternate I believe) and is widely used in video production systems.

 

I know it has Apple specific firmware as if you install a standard Intel X540 into a Mac even with SmallTree drivers installed, then it is not recognized. So it seems to have very similar behavior to aquantia discussed here.

 

i did read this thread btw and it is very interesting and informative, so again apologies if I veered off topic.

 

cheers,

 

zebity.

Sad news my friends.. Aquantia kext patch stopped working with 10.13.5 Beta 5. My ASUS NIC suddenly is not recognised anymore by the system .

 

 

It's working perfectly on my Hackintosh with Mieze patch on 10.13.5 Beta 5. You need to check your patch again or something else might be borked on your setup or config.plist.

Anyone else running who's had a successful Aquantia (in 1013.3. or 10.13.4) implementation and who now is running Beta 5 of 10.13.5 (with the patch) care to report?

 

In Beta 5 of 10.13.5, is the Aquantia still working?  (this assumes it was working in 10.13.4 or 10.13.3, and now we need to know if it is still working in this beta of 10.13.5)

(Sorry folks, I don't run Betas or I would report....)

Read my reply above. Patch is still working for baptized cards on 10.13.5 Beta 5.

I did.  (Note in my response "...Anyone else....)  So, to clarify, is there anyone else other  than d5aqoep running 10.13.5 Beta 5 with an Aquantia 10GBE card that is working?

I did not change anything in my configuration.. The Aquantia was working all time long with 10.13.5 Beta 5, until it suddenly stopped.

 

Good for all of us if this just happened in my case...

It might just be corruption of some kext or problem with beta.

You still haven't told us which patch you are using? While the first one will fail almost certainly after a driver update, patching the string "built-in" will survive provided they haven't added another check to identify Apple hardware.

Well, it has always been clear that this patch will most likely fail after the next update of the driver. Try to use the "built-in" patch which should still work as it doesn't rely on any specific code pattern.

Alright... I removed and replugged the Aquantia NIC and now the adapter is again working with both Mieze's Kext Patch and 10.13.5 Beta 5.

 

I don't know what was exactly the issue, but it seems that indeed also the kext patch is still working.

 

I think by this we can close the discussion all around my formerly reported issue. 

 

Thanks, guys and ladies!

Just reporting. From 10.14 macOS Mojave DP1 onwards, only this patch is woking. Previous patch by Mieze has stopped working.

 

But hey!!! Our flashed cards still work! :)
