Has anyone figured out a way to run an Asus 490 w/ i225-V ethernet truly natively WITHOUT using kexts (i.e. fakepciid)?

The Dortania OC guide appears to suggest only changes to device-id is required, but in practice, it seems nobody can get this ethernet controller to work without using two fakepciid kexts. Anyone make contact w/ the OC team re: this?

From my understanding, it runs pretty natively, in the sense that FakePCIID just changes the ID of the Ethernet Card so macOS recognizes it as compatible and then attaches it to it's own drivers. Can't get more "native" than that, imo.. Most other LAN cards require kexts: like Intelmausi, Atheros, Smalltree, etc.

Gotcha. I was just confused why the Dortania guide makes it seem like the fakepciid kext isn't needed since you are doing something very similar within OC by changing the ID of the card. 

For better understanding I may show a stupid example:

If you provide ID for your LAN card and this ID will be SATA then your card will not work as SATA device.

FakeID have a sense only for very similar devices from one vendor and one family and one series.
