Hi! So I just plugged this into my Macbook Pro and it works, but I can't download the color changing interface because it's for Windows. I don't know what I need to do. I followed these instructions, and the keyboard itself is functioning great, I just don't know how to change the colors. TIA!

Hey there, for those running 10.10.4 and having problems with the whole thing, remember to use the current version of Kext Utility. You can get it here.

After running it, do a restart , then install the .kext file and do another restart. That did the trick for me.

This works great! Thanks for such an awesome piece of software you created.

I would like to ask if it is possible for you to make it open source, so that other developers can continue working on it.

 

Thanks

Hi there, you may want to go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy after you see the message you mentioned.

There should be a button that says "Open Anyway"

 

Click that button and it should allow you to open KextUtility.

Good Luck!

Hi I'm on OSX 10.10.5 with a Poseidon ZX. I downloaded your ZX driver and followed your instructions from the first page. After several tries I also looked in the IORegistryExplorer but was not able to find "TtEsports", "Poseidon", "ZX" I only have "USB Keyboard"

 

Please let me know what information you need from me and I'll gladly share it. Otherwise I'll have to return this keyboard.

It worked for me until I rebooted - I've tried to follow the steps now running 10.11 with no luck.

 

Guess we need a different .kext file.

Hey! First of all thanks for the driver - it's great. But I have a problem with it: after the crash, the keyboard stopped working. I went through the steps again, and still nothing. The weird part is that the keyboard works fine when in the login screen. After logging in, it stops working correctly ('e'->'e '). 

 

Kexstat gives the following:

kextstat | grep IOUSBHIDDriver
67    5 0xffffff7f80d9a000 0xa000     0xa000     com.apple.iokit.IOUSBHIDDriver (900.4.1) 7180DE6A-7FF9-35D5-A78A-8C417A4BD45E <39 31 5 4 3 1>

Help?

 

OS: 10.11

Hey, thanks for the post! It really fixed the problem for the keyboard, and I've been using it without any issues recently. However, I just so happened to download the new OS update "El Capitan" (Version 10.11) and it apparently disabled both my keyboard as well as my Ethernet cable at the same time. I tried redoing the steps and apparently, I do not believe they are working perhaps due to the newer OS version? I was wondering if there were going to be solutions for future OS updates like this one which will allow Mac users to keep using their Poseidon Z's?

In El Capitan, they introduce "System Integrity Protection".

With this protection, it is required that a kext has to be signed.

 

However, the kext provided by @brandonchang is not signed.

We were able to get away by using kext-dev-mode=1 in boot-args.

 

This doesn't work anymore with the new protection enabled.

 

To workaround this problem, you may need to disable such protection and also add "kext-dev-mode=1" in boot-args.

See here for more information.

 

Do this at your own risk...

Note that you are about to disable such protection entirely.

 

Good Luck :)

I see, thanks for the reply hibikiledo. However, is this same process also necessary for the Poseidon RGB Brown Switch keyboard as well where I have to risk losing the protection? Or do I just do the regular process excluding the protection disabling? I'm currently thinking about selling my current Z keyboard and buying the RGB or a keyboard from a different brand. However, I'm still leaning towards getting the RGB. Any suggestions? ども

Hi, just registered to thank everyone who had some input on this.

 

As mentioned above, I was able to get the Poseidon Z working on OSX El Capitan by first disabling System Integrity Protection, which locks certain directories out of writing even for root for unsigned kexts.

 

1. Reboot Mac and load recovery mode (cmd+r on boot)

2. Open Terminal

3. # csrutil disable ; reboot

 

After disabling SIP, I was able to follow the original instructions to install the kext. It's working pretty good now!
