Pre-release

@ammulder ammulder released this Feb 27, 2016

No functional changes from the previous release.

However, there are two major changes:

  1. It's built from a much more direct port of the Linux 4.4.1 iwlwifi driver.
  2. It fixes a memory allocation problem with the previous release that may sometimes (but not always) cause the driver to go haywire and crash your machine.

To test this release, download and unzip it, and run commands like this in Terminal:

  1. sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext
  2. sudo kextload AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext
  3. sudo kextunload AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext

Then open /Applications/Utilities/Console.app and you should see a number of lines (you can search for AppleIntelWiFiMVM) showing the hardware it identified and that it loaded and parsed a firmware file (with notes on each section of the file as it sees it).
