I am not using -x64 because I have a lot of Panics

For working Marvell 88E8056 Ethernet you have to edit the Info.plist inside :


sudo -s

Your password, then
nano /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/Info.plist

find this string : [Tip: if you use nano it's easier to find this string if you press ctrl+w (whereis option) and type "53" then press Enter.]


and replace 3 with 6

then find :

and replace 0x436211ab with 0x436411ab (2 with 4)

then finally replace the "3" from

                        <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053 Singleport Copper$</string>

with "6" so it will look like this:

                        <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8056 Singleport Copper$</string>

save the file, chown and chmod the extensions:

chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/*

and reboot

Please report if working in -x64
