pfix v2.3 Released

This version is now deprecated, consult the downloads page for a link to the latest version.

This release is to correct an oversight I made a couple of months ago and did not realize until yesterday when I released pfix v2.2. I have added a bit of code which will enable permissions on a mounted volume prior to running pfix. I added this feature to the myHack installer’s post-installation scripts months ago, however I forgot to add it to pfix . For more information you can read the archived myHack installer page where I made note of this feature/bugfix in more detail [link].



  • -If target is a mounted volume execute command to enable permissions on the volume prior to running pfix.


  • -A number of alterations/additions were made to enable proper functionality of pfix when it is launched from a USB Installer or Installation DVD.
  • -Log file is no longer written to disk, the log is displayed directly in the terminal window instead. This better informs the end user of what is happening and also prevents any errors from occurring if it is launched from a read-only location such as a USB Installer or Installation DVD.
  • -Improvements made to visual appearance of log.
  • -pfix version info now displayed in terminal before running any operations.


  • -Revised function to move CustomExtensions to Extensions to ensure smooth bug-free operation.
  • -pfix version now echoed to log file and terminal.


  • Bugfix: Corrected syntax error on kextcache command under Leopard.
  • Bugfix: Corrected minor error that could sometimes cause pfix.log to not be created.
  • -pfix.log now written to root [/] partition of the system it has been run on.
  • -Changed verbosity level of kextcache to 2 for additional useful information to be written to log.
  • -All kext caches are now removed prior to rebuilding.
  • -Minor alterations to output for additional clarity.

  3. Conti,

    Any chance you can modify the installer so it works with keyboard/mouse of of the box? I’ve used plain chameleon and it works so I can’t figure out why myHack doesn’t. Even after wards I still can’t get keyboard/mouse access. Sucks for us netbook users :)


    • Mike: If it doesn’t work by default you most likely need to select the ps2 kexts (is my guess). This is already included in myHack but if you have selected that option and it still does not work I can look into it further if you provide me more details. Additionally questions of this nature should be asked on the myHack Installer page (current version) for future reference.
