    Hi Paul,

    As requested : https://we.tl/t-9ZqtH9UBZW

    I have emailed RED in March 2020 asking them to host this file / and update their support docs.
    No response as yet / the support docs have not seen an update.

    I keep getting tripped up at Stage 4... It keeps telling me no such directory.

    Hi Matt,

    Go into Finder : Go to your top level drive (eg Macintosh HD)
    Top level directories should be : Applications, Library, System, Users
    Inside Library : Confirm in the 50+ directories there is one called : Extensions

    UPDATE : 2020 Mar 08 : Worked for 2 x People

    As mentioned here at the steps involved in Manually Installing a 3rd Party Kernel Extension in Catalina
    (Refs for steps at the bottom of the thread)

    STAGE 1 : Get Kernel Extension(‘kext’ file ready)

    +) Download redrocketx.kext.zip file from : https://we.tl/t-9ZqtH9UBZW
    (this file will exist for the next 7 days in WeTransfer)
    +) Decompress redrocketx.kext.zip on Desktop
    +) Go into ‘Terminal’ App
    +) Change directory to Desktop in ‘Terminal’

    cd /Users/YOURUSERNAME/Desktop
    (replace 'YOURUSERNAME' with your Desktop user name)

    STAGE 2 : Before installing Kexts, disable Gate Keeper and mount the System Partition as Read/Write in ‘Terminal’

    sudo spctl --master-disable
    sudo mount -uw NOTE: Even if this Fails : The overall process can work
    sudo killall Finder


    STAGE 4 : Use ’Terminal’ to copy extension into directory (as copying with Finder will not work properly for kext files)

    sudo cp -R redrocketx.kext /Library/Extensions

    STAGE 5 : Repair permissions. Rebuild permissions in ‘Terminal’

    sudo chown -v -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
    sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
    sudo chmod -v -R 755 /Library/Extensions
    sudo chown -v -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions
    sudo touch /Library/Extensions
    sudo kextcache -i /


    STAGE 6 : Reboot machine

    With any luck at this point - this might be all that is needed to RocketX driver working in Catalina.

    =============================
    Reference information (1) Main script details on installing Kexts on Catalina gleaned from:
    https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/g...talina.268964/

    Reference information (2): Location of 3rd party Kext files.
    I used finder on my own Mac Pro 2013 running Catalina & RRX.

    Reference information (3): I have checked the ownership of all files in /System/Library/Extensions on my machine to confirm they are all owned by ‘root:wheel’ (as detailed on the tonymacx86 site ref 1)

    AJ
    First off - it worked!
    Secondly, for most of my RED footage that is not 8k, the new Mac Pro plays the REDCode full debayered in realtime with no problem. However, I bought the card and want to use it!

    So, can I also get the newer kewt file? Mine is version 1.3. lol

    Maybe I can just host that file on Dropbox and share the link to anyone else interested.
