Re: macOS High Sierra (10.13) FTDI Driver Bug Workaround

After many attempts trying all the suggestions in this entire thread, I was unable to get my 2413U working under High Sierra after upgrading (or any other FTDI devices) on a 2010 Mini.

However, I came across this suggestion, which is a little less cumbersome than Jay's procedure and it worked the first time (scroll down to the post by Garrett Johnson):

Cheers.

Sorry, I missed a flag that should be there. I've updated the post with the correct command to delete the old one:

Code: Select all
 rm -r AppleUSBFTDI.kext


I think maybe the first error is because an older version of the driver already exists from a previous "fix". Do the command above first, then do the move command and see if that works.


This works great for me, now. Use it after each OS update. Thanks for posting the latest instructions in an easy-to-locate blog post.

Re: macOS High Sierra (10.13) FTDI Driver Bug Workaround

Any updates on this in the past 4 months ?
I use a Insteon 2413u and a Z-stick gen2 , running on a Late 2012 Mac Mini with Sierra (10.12) , and it's pretty much bulletproof.
I'd like to update the OS but i certainly don't want jack up my system to the extent that i'm going into recovery mode to clean up drivers after every shutdown /power outage.
Is there any hope in sight?

Indigo 7 w/ Insteon and Z-Wave lights and outlets
Security integration.
Energy monitoring

I ended up downgrading OS. I just could not keep the driver going after brief success. Seems a tad silly to not being able to upgrade OS without breaking something so basic.

Here's a positive story:

I did a fresh install up to 10.14.4 on my 2012 I7 Mac Mini.

Moved my Indigo folder to the fresh install and then ran the 7.2 installer.

No issues at all with the supplied Apple driver, both my RFXCOM and Insteon function properly thru multiple reboots.

:D :D :D
