Very strange USB Issue on MacBook Pro 2012

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new here, so I apologize if I've chosen the wrong subforum for this question. 

 

I am scratching my head a bit on an issue with a clients MacBook pro.  He was having USB connection issues and claimed the laptop wasn't detecting any USB connected to it. 

 

Figuring it was a failed USB port, I took it in but ended up just feeling more confused after doing some diagnostics. 

 

It came in loaded with Catalina, a recent upgrade spurned the beginning of the issues the client told me. 

 

I decided to revert it back to the default OS in the base recovery image, which is Yosemite. 

 

Upon finishing the install, I found that the USB port was in fact working again. Figuring I had resolved the issue, I updated it back to Catalina just to be met with the same issue upon reinstalling. 

 

SMH 

 

Tried nvram, pram, and smc reset each to no avail.  

 

One thing to note is that during boot, the USB is getting power as it lights up when connected during boot up. 

 

But the ports are dead as soon as it boots into the operating system. 

 

I have a strong feeling that this is a driver issue. I tried unloading and reloading the USB IO kext, with no noticable change. 

 

Is anyone here familiar with this issue? Would there be any other kext related troubleshooting i can perform ? Is it possible to revert to the kext used in Yosemite on catalina ?

 

One last thing to note, on Yosemite the USB was functioning 100%. But I did get a strange notification that the USB ports were using power even when there wasn't any connected to it. Either way, I find it very very odd that it works perfectly in Yosemite. 

 

Thanks in advance

 

Steve

      Hi all,

      after I upgraded to 10.14.6 the number of usable USB ports decreased.
      USBInjectAll is loaded.

      Any suggestions on how to get all ports working again?

      cheers

      A setup with an IVY bridge e5430 dell worked fine. but now seems the XHC device
      is a hardware issue. There is no bios setting to enable disable. Only enable/disable boot/external.USB in general.
      All set to enable. Also just mention of USB in power settings wake on USB.
       
      Did show up when I set up the ports w/USBINJECTALL, then was working on imessage isssue when the DSDT
      stopped loading after updating clover. I had two versions of MAcIasl. One with iasl 6. and one had 6.2a. Kept
      the 6.2a, was RM's most recent. One problem Im confused by is it compiles fine but after saved if its opened,
      the error that was repaired comes back.
       
      This part:
       
                      If (LEqual (PM6H, One))
                      {
                          CreateBitField (BUF0, \_SB.PCI0._Y0C._RW, ECRW)  // _RW_: Read-Write Status
                          Store (Zero, ECRW (If (PM0H)
                                  {
                                      CreateDWordField (BUF0, \_SB.PCI0._Y0D._LEN, F0LN)  // _LEN: Length
                                      Store (Zero, F0LN)
                                  }))
                      }
       
      Loads with the error but not sure what happened on the original that worked.
       
      Any Idea?
       
      Going over the boot log, The XHC device is there under the PCI readings dont think hardware issue... 1e31 Just seems the saved DSDT should not
      have errors after saved, but using the other version of Maciasl, the DSDT would save without errors and open without but it would not load.
      acted like there was no FakeSMC... 
       
      Edit: Seems all the saved DSDT have that error when re-opened using that version  RM's Maciasl w/iasl v.6.2a but seems to load fine.

      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
