Internet on Mavericks (Easy Workaround for Android Users)


First of all A HUGE THANK YOU to Team Niresh...!!! 

You guys are saviours of AMD users. Without you guys, I will still be drooling at working Mavericks Builds.


I now have a stable and working Mavericks build and now it is my turn to start Paying It Forward.!!


I have been searching for a compatible Wifi card to gain internet access for some time. I couldn't get my hands on the working models so far. So I went searching for an alternative.


After eating bucket loads of posts from different websites, I stumbled on a word in a comment section "PdaNet+".

And Bingo.! I now have a working internet connection in Mavericks.


So, the deal is simple. Its called USB Tethering.  


Maybe You can simply connect to PC, Enable USB Tethering and connect to internet. But I can't verify it.


Because My Nexus 7 Wifi (2012 Model) Runs on Stock Android (4.4 KitKat) and USB tethering Option is removed in KitKat. It was present until 4.3 Jelly Bean. So I have to manually enable it using 3rd Party App. 


"Praise Google"


In order to make this working, you need to have the following things.


* An Android Phone/Tablet (Android 2.2 and Up)


*An active Internet connection on your Phone/Tablet. You can also Connect your phone or Tab to a Wifi Internet at home/work or any where.


* A data cable.


* PdaNet+ Android App and Mac Client. I have uploaded it for you.


I have Included the Mac Client and the Android App In the link. Ofcourse you can go to PdaNet website and download it yourself.

I have also included the dmg file for Android File Transfer, without which you Won't be able to read your Android Device Storage.


Here is list of working Devices.  Mine is a Google Nexus 7 Wifi only Tab. It works like a breeze.



Here are the steps:


1. Install PDANet+ Android App. Don't open it immediately. Run the FoxFi Key apk file and the you are good to go.


(You can buy the App incase, you are not interested in side loading 3rd party App, which a basically a security risk)


(If you don't know how to side load Android Apps, Here is a Quick Guide.)


Go to Setting > Security > Check the option "Unknown Sources - allow installation of apps from sources other than play store".

Install ES File Explorer from Google Play store. Then you can browse your folders in device storage.

Copy "PdaNet+ v4.15.apk & FoxFi Key (supports PdaNet) v1.02.apk" to your device storage.

Navigate to Folder > click on PdaNet+ v4.15.apk and install it. Don't open. Install FoxFi Key the same Way.



2. Open the PdaNet+ app, Check "Activate USB Tether".


3. Connect your device to Mavericks. Install PdaNetA412.pkg file on mac and run it.


4. Click Connect from PdaNet+ Menu in TaskBar.


Tadaaaa....  :clapping:  :clapping:  :clapping: 


You can now use internet without any hiccups... 


Please point out if there are any mistakes...




gracias amigos...!!!

    • Hello, friends, I need your help. I am using  Motherboard: Asus H81M-CS Processor:  Intel Core i3-4130 Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400 I connected monitor via VGA port.   Everything is working great. Only issue right now I am having is graphics with VGA Port. Can any one suggest me to solve this issue?
    • It's because when you update, the kernel is replaced & so are the kexts. You need to either know how to use Terminal to copy the files after booting into your USB OR hook up your Start Disk Hard Drive to another Hack or Mac & copy over the proper kernel to System/Library/Kernels/ & also use kextwizard to install the kexts required as well & then repair cache. It's not that complicated if you have another Mac or Hack(intosh) to connect your drive to. There are some tutorials online. I'm by no means a pro at this at all, but I couldn't believe no one had replied to anyone here. I'm actually in the exact same situation, just finished updating my Yosemite Zone 10.10 to 10.10.5 through AppStore & it won't boot back in, then I remembered when I did this last time I had to connect my HD to another mac & copy over files, but I can't remember exact files so I came here to look for them & found this thread. I have been successful in getting an old MSI Platinum35 mobo with the 771/775 mod & Xeon x5460 with AMD 6850 running Sierra. I have been successful getting a newer MSI A88XM Gaming Mobo with x4 760k & AMD 6670 running Mavericks, then Yosemite, then High Sierra, and recently tested Sierra & it worked too. One thing though is that with Sierra & High Sierra the screen flickered different colors & I needed to download a thing called SwitchResZ & change the setting from "Billions of Colors" to "Millions of Colors" & it fixed it both times, even after I uninstalled it, the screen flickering was gone,.. So I have been through a few different processes (not including the updates like 10.10 to 10.10.5) But I am the farthest thing from a pro. Just followed tutorials, googled  & used distros, I think DeeKay was first one for Mavericks, then Yosemite Zone, Sierra Zone, & finally High Sierra Zone. But my digi 002r worked on all with the AVID 003 family 11.1.3 driver, except when it came to high sierra. For some reason it has sync issues with Midi/audio. Says something about not recognizing clock speed of 43,121Khz or something (cuz it should be 44.1Khz, or 48Khz etc) But it only happens on High Sierra. On Yosemite I had to do a trick cuz the play bar's timing was off, to fix it I went into bios & changed my multiplier from 100 to 103 so instead of my cpu running at 3.6Ghz, it was like 3.9Ghz. But for some reason that fixed it & Yosemite was stable, rarely (if ever) did it crash. But Sierra crashes all the time so I can't make music on it anymore, for some reason I don't think it was like this at first...maybe something I installed. Only reason why I changed was to keep up with Logic X updates. My Sierra build is up to date with Logic X 10.4 & Digi 002r runs great (11.1.3 driver) but like I said it crashes alot & I don't know why. So my thought was to return to Yosemite 10.10 & update to 10.10.5 like I did b4 & downgrade Logic X to 10.3 or 10.2.4(can't remember). So I got to find those files & instructions again to put the proper kernel & texts back that the update erased. That's what ya'll need to do as well. When I find it I will come back & edit my post or just post a new one.
    • Hai,

      Is there a way to increase video memory of a 

      AMD A4-6210 APU

      AMD Radeon R3 Graphics 1.8 Ghz

      it is not for gaming, but only to seen movies ect
    • So I tried to install Mac OS X Sierra on my computer with the following specs :   - Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHZ - 12GB RAM DDR3 - 2 HDD (.1TB , 250GB ) - Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB VRAM DDR3   Everything was cool at first the installation went smoothly with no problems, after setting up everything I noticed that the graphics card has been detected by the systems but there is no acceleration and the resolution is 1024x768, I couldn’t change it   I tried a lot of kext drivers from multiple websites but no success, last kext crashes my os, I start getting black screen after the login page, and the computer restart it self immediately, so I decided to mess with the clover options to find if I can enable the graphics card from there, and WALLAA, the magic happened, I went to clover options then > Graphics Injector Menu > I checked : InjectNvidia option, and I checked : Use NVIDIA WEB Drivers   Note : I already installed Nvidia web drivers previously so you do that too before trying this method   After the restart it took longer then the usual to boot up, but once it got to the login page I noticed that the acceleration is working perfectly and the graphics has no bugs like before.   So until now everything is working fine and I’m enjoying my experience with Mac Sierra  
    • HI, I have the same issue. I have integrated Intel HD4000 and nVidia 620m. I tried with IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler and nv_disabled bootflags but none of them helped, it just got me additional kernel panic "AppleUSBHostPort: :disconnect: persistant enumeration failures". I also don't have option to turn off any of my graphic cards in BIOS.  Is there any solution to this issue?
