How to edit kext Info.plist

Recommended Posts

You can use a text editor or a plist editor like this


To access the file, click the kext with the right mouse button and select "Show Package Contents". If it's a system kext, it belongs to "root", you will not have write permission, then you can make a copy, edit and replace the original with Finder.

Some editors (like TextMate) require authentication if the user does not have permission to write, others (like the default Mac text editor) only reports that cannot write.

Another option is to run the editor with "sudo" in terminal

sudo /Applications/TextEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/TextEdit [space] [drag the file to terminal]

After editing, save and close the file, repair permissions and update cache

sudo chown -R 0:0 [space] [drag the file to terminal]
sudo chmod -R 755 [space] [drag the file to terminal]
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
