I've added a reference to this post in the USB 2.0 Best Practices guide. Seems that Solution 2 worked in this case.Hi @CaseySJ,
I just wanted to follow up on the USB issues I was having a while ago. Basically, my SSL UF8 controller was freezing up all the USB ports.
I tried everything, and in the end the ONLY solution was an inatek PCIe card (KT4004).
Basically, solution 1 found in the Best practices guide didn't work. I purchased a pluggable 10-port USB 2.0 hub but the freezes continued.
You may want to update the guide as keeping USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices separated or on a USB 2.0 hub plugged into HS09 or HS10 did not solve the issues - only using the PCI card to bypass the intel controller altogether worked.
Also, it may be worth mentioning that most USB 2.0 devices work fine on the built-in USB 3 and 2 ports.
Out of the 11 usb devices I have tried, only 2 have given me issues - both are in fact USB 2.0 hubs with USB 1 devices attached and are the SSL UF8 and Qcon Pro X DAW controllers. As long as these devices are plugged into the PCI card the system is completely stable.
Have you seen the Quick Reference spoiler at the top of Post 1?Hello everyone, sorry for this question. I'm looking for the latest update from Cathalina to Big sure. Any help will be fantastic. I need to update FCPX, and I can't.
My actual version is Cathalina 10.15.3 (19D76)
Thanks for all your hard work
- Are you using Broadcom Bluetooth or Intel Bluetooth?
- The USBPorts kext already disables HS12, where supposedly the Fenvi Broadcom Bluetooth was connected.
- If you are using Intel Bluetooth, have you physically removed the Fenvi PCIe card?
- The USBPorts kext already enables HS14, where Intel Bluetooth is connected.
- If you're trying to use Intel Bluetooth and the Fenvi card is physically removed, then your USBPorts kext is already set up correctly.
FWIW, I've recently removed the paid app "Little Snitch" from all of my Mojave and Big Sur machines because of ongoing problems with file sharing and screen sharing –despite massaging the rules and filters. Even if it's "Off" there are sharing issues, so it's gone.Hello again,
I installed Little Snitch. Now my hacki is a bit broken. Little Snitch changed the system Language. If I go to System Preferences -> Language & Region, I get this message "Could not load Language & Region preference pane." and some software didn't work anymore. They are not blocked by Little Snitch, they won't start (Ableton, Telegram). I deinstalled LS, but nothing changed. Most other programs (Adobe stuff, Reaper, Sononym) work normally. I tried to use Time Machine but it won't work. I have read in the forum that I should boot into Recovery Mode and then reinstall Mojave (14.4).
What's the best way to do? Should I upgrade to the newest version of Mojave (14.6) or should I just try to reinstall the current version? Are there any other things that I must consider? Or is there an easier way to fix this?
Thx for the help.
Apologies! I really should drink my morning coffee before replying.I am now using the Intel WiFi/Bluetooth (Kexts that were in your build). I have physically removed the Fenvi PCIe card that has both WiFi and Bluetooth. When I am using the 'USBInjectAll-071' and 'USBInjectAll-076' files, both the Intel WiFi Bluetooth work. When I switch over to my USBPorts.kext though, the WiFi works, but the Bluetooth does not.
