How to find kexts for your hardware

Post by Cassio »

Identify the hardware

Download and run app System Info [Local Link Removed for Guests]

See ID of the device you are looking for kext, example

Access [Local Link Removed for Guests] and search by device ID

Kexts used by other people with the same device will be listed

If Download button is disabled, it means the kext is not available in the server, then you can Google the kext name (in the example [External Link Removed for Guests]).
