What lines? Or maybe you can share the kext?

The "patch" has always been to remove these two lines in the IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Info.plist:

Code:
	<key>OSBundleRequired</key>
	<string>Network-Root</string>

But for some reason, at least with 10.8.2, it is not necessary...

Thanks BigDonkey! Installed the 10.7.5 kexts using kextwizard then ran the cache cleaning part and all work fine. I noticed occasional lines in videos though... hasn' happened in a while.

Hm, if this is the only modification, maybe it's pointless to include the whole kext in the installer, command like this:

Code:
sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Delete :OSBundleRequired" /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Info.plist

should do the "patching" as well.

DUDE!!!! This totally fixed two things for me!!

1, I accidentally updated to 10.7.5 from 10.7.4 and it locked up my login screen for about two minutes before I could click anything.

2, During my 10.7.4 days, my MOTU firewire device always pinwheeled (the volume icon) for 2-3 minutes before it finally came on after I logged in. Most of the time I'd turn on my computer and just go get coffee.

Now I turn it on and it's booted within seconds ready to go!

Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Why are you using kexts intended for 10.7.5 on 10.8.3 when patched kexts specific to 10.8.3 already exist?
