Arduino with Mac OS X Yosemite

2015-03-22 Hardware Nerd sergio

trying to download an arduino program in Yosemite and not working?

The FTDI driver Apple wrote is the culprit.

`

disable the Apple FTDI driver first

cd /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns
sudo mv AppleUSBFTDI.kext AppleUSBFTDI.disabled

now reboot

`

Download the new driver here: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

When Ive tried, the last version was v2.2.18: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP/MacOSX/FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_2_18.dmg

Install the new driver and happy arduino.
