Greetings.
I successfully installed EI Capitan and it's running smoothly. However, I need help in identifying the app that will enable me use USB Tethering.

I normally use HoRNDIS USB driver on Yosemite. Unfortunately, this is not working with OS X 10.11 (EI Capitan) confirmed by the developer.

Please link me to the one that can work with EI Capitan if you know.

Thank you.

Is like there's no solution for this now. I guess I have to rollback to Yosemite, for the only option to Internet for me is USB Tethering.

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

Mobo: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
Mobo: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

I can not understand:
1. CsrActiveConfig is needed to turn off SIP. Why do I need BooterConfig??
2.
kext-dev-mode=1 & rootless=0 do not work in the final version of the OS 10.11. Why do they need??
3. If I get right:
- kexts of Clover at the working SIP successfully loaded
- Binary patches kexts of Clover - also work at the working SIP
- When the SIP is ON it is not possible to install kexts in system directory and change system kexts manually. To do this (if necessary SIP), I must first disable SIP, and install the necessary kexts and turn SIP again?

There is little docs on BooterConfig. The values comes from how csrutil affects these variables.

2. kext-dev-mode=1 & rootless=0 do not work in the final version of the OS 10.11. Why do they need??

No need for either in 10.11 -- they will have no effect. But the files and PBI are used for systems other than final 10.11.

3. If I get right:
- kexts of Clover at the working SIP successfully loaded

No idea what that means.

- Binary patches kexts of Clover - also work at the working SIP

Nothing to do with SIP.

- When the SIP is ON it is not possible to install kexts in system directory and change system kexts manually. To do this (if necessary SIP), I must first disable SIP, and install the necessary kexts and turn SIP again?

SIP must be disabled whenever you wish to modify certain system files, install unsigned kexts, etc.

It must also be disabled whenever the system decides to rebuild kernel cache.

Hi , RehabMan
I have updated the profile. my laptop hardware information is following
Mobo: HP elitebook G820 (Clover)
CPU: i5-4200U
Graphics: HD4400, 1600x900(in fact , I use 1920x1080 as my screen resolution , but there is no1920x1080 config.plist and no 1920x1080 driver , so I choose 1600x900 files )

For USB you need a port injector.

Download patchmatic: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-maciasl-patchmatic/downloads/RehabMan-patchmatic-2015-0107.zip
Extract the 'patchmatic' binary from the ZIP. Copy it to /usr/bin, such that you have the binary at /usr/bin/patchmatic.

In terminal,
Code:
if [ -d ~/Downloads/RehabMan ]; then rm -R ~/Downloads/RehabMan; fi
mkdir ~/Downloads/RehabMan
cd ~/Downloads/RehabMan
patchmatic -extract

Note: It is easier if you use copy/paste instead of typing the commands manually.

Post contents of Downloads/RehabMan directory (as ZIP).

Also, post ioreg: http://www.tonymacx86.com/audio/58368-guide-how-make-copy-ioreg.html. Please, use the IORegistryExplorer v2.1 attached to the post! DO NOT reply with an ioreg from any other version of IORegistryExplorer.app.

And output from:
Code:
kextstat|grep -y acpiplat
kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu
kextstat|grep -y applelpc

Also, post EFI/Clover folder.
