Asmedia USB 3.0 Update

June 12, 2012

It seems we finally have some options for the Asmedia drivers for Mac 10.7.x.

There is now an Asmedia USB 3.0 driver package available, which you can download from here.

I installed this package and now get kernel panics and system won’t boot.  I’m going to have to do a fresh install and do more

Also, there is a Native USB 3.0 driver you can download here.

I haven’t tried this one yet, maybe when I do the fresh install I’ll try this one first.

Just want to thank John for bringing the Asmedia USB 3.0 driver pkg to our attention.  He has it working on his H3.

I’ll let you know my experience with both on the Sandy Bridge system.



Asmedia USB 3.0 still a problem

January 24, 2012

Here is what I’ve concluded regarding the Asmedia USB 3.0 problem.

The NEC/Rensas USB 3.0 driver that is included in MultiBeast is causing the “shutdown” problem on the SH67H3/7.

So, we still need an Asmedia USB 3.0 driver for Mac, for all to work perfectly.

Right now, here are your choices:
1) Working USB 3.0 ports, with a shutdown problem
2) Don’t install the NEC/Renasas driver, no USB 3.0 ports working, but hackintosh shuts down properly

As I’ve stated before, I have access to the source code for the Linux Asmedia USB 3.0 driver, but need someone to convert it to Mac. If anyone has the ability to do this, please let us know, so we can all experience some JOY here.
