How to Install a KEXT File

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I am trying to work out how to install a KEXT file on the osx86 mac. I have the USB ports detected as far as the system profiler shows but none of the attached components are working or indeed registering. I have tried to reinstall and remove all audio fixes and still the same problem is there.


I have been advised to install a Kext file that has been sent to me but I dont know what to do and I can find anywhere that will show me .


Can someone help?

Go to terminal.


sudo -s


cp -rf NAMEOF.kext /System/Library/Extensions

chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/NAMEOF.kext

chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/NAMEOF.kext

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext


reboot, and keep your fingers crossed
