    • It did not work for me. In my case, I found that the installed Volume was renamed to "--" and the installation script stopped. After that the Volume was damaged and I had to erase it with Disk Utility.   I suspect that the error does not come from the script itself but happened prior to run the script. Some process was messing with the installed Volume.  
    • How Do I Get iCloud Working in Yosemite Zone? Hello! I recently installed Yosemite Zone and iCloud, FaceTime, iMessage, and Google Chrome and none of them work, each saying my computer isn't validated. I have tried many things including the one with EFI Studio and deleting stuff to messing around in Chameleon and none of it seems to work. The App Store and it's sister apps work just fine, though. Does anyone know how to get all this working, as they are things I'd like to use. Specs: AMD Phenom II x4 B55 3.3 GHz 8 GB DDR3 NVidia GeForce GTX 750 MSI 890GXM-G65 Yosemite Zone 10.10.1

    • MacOS and Windows dual boot machine build Hey guys,  hope this is the right place to ask this sort of question. I am dreaming of building a PC with both windows and mac installed, and was wondering what the recommended disk setup for something like that would be.  Windows would be used for gaming, and macOS would be used for mainly everything else, and I would like to be able to switch between the two with ease. What I would like to do is have both os's live on separate SSD drives, and have a shared HD for my other data. Is that reasonable / has somebody built a system like that / could someone point me in the right direction if I wanted to find a build guide? Thanks!

About This File

This KEXT enables most Broadcom 4300 series wireless adapters to work as Airport. I have used this on a couple different setups.

Installation involves several easy steps.

1. download Kext Helper

2. back up original IO80211Family.kext

3. drag the new IO80211Family.kext onto Kext Helper. It will ask you for your password.

This will install to /System/Library/Extensions

If you wish, you can also add the file to /Extra/Extensions

The following Chipsets should be supported

BCM 4306

BCM 4309

BCM 4311 (Natively Supported)

BCM 4315

BCM 4318

BCM 4320

BCM 4321

BCM 4322

BCM 4323

BCM 4323x Family

BCM 4324

BCM 4325

BCM 4326

BCM 4328

BCM 4329

BCM 4342

The following card models should be supported

Belkin F5D7000

Buffalo WL12-PCI-G545

Linksys PCMCIA Card WPC54G



Netgear WN311B (v1 & 2)

Probably tons of other cards, as long as they have a supported chipset...

I take no special credit for this KEXT. Even though I have written this KEXT and made this available to the community, this hack can be done by anyone with a text editor and a little know how. My goal here is to make a KEXT available to the community that can be installed and will work on as many Broadcom chipsets as possible, and to do it in a Vanilla friendly way.
