The problem is my kexts are not loading because most of them have hidden files in them, (info.plist). I need to find a way to unhide them, otherwise they won't load. I could go and do it one by one but its just not feasible because there are hundreds of them, is there a quicker way? If not, could someone upload their Mavericks 10.9.4 extensions folder?

The hidden attribute will not prevent the kexts from loading.

How can i be sure about that? Is there a reason?

There are hidden files all over the system. It doesn't matter to the kernel.

Your problem lies elsewhere.
