Dear RushFiles users,
The Mac client uses FUSE to mount the RushFiles drive on macOS devices, which is currently blocked from loading on M1 Macs with Big Sur 11.1, which results in a loop at trying to allow the system extension to be loaded. Big Sur 11.01 mounts the drive correctly, even on M1 Macs. FUSE is an extension developed by a third party. We are currently waiting on Apple and FUSE developers to resolve these issues.
In the meantime, we advise against updating your system to Big Sur 11.1 if you are using an M1 Mac.
As soon as there are any updates, this article will be updated.
With version 2.8.2 , mounting the drive on Big Sur 11.1 on M1 Macs should be possible.
Big Sur 11.2 might still have problems with it however - we're still waiting on Apple to resolve the bugs present in Big Sur's Extension Manager.
If you experience that Allowing and loading the extension is still looping, then you may try the following:
- Boot the Mac into Recovery Mode
- Open Terminal and run:
kmutil trigger-panic-medic --volume-root /Volumes/System
- This disables loading all third-party kernel extensions until you approve them again.
- Reboot the Mac and Start RushFiles.
- Big Sur should prompt you to accept the kernel extension again. Accept this, and follow the instruction to reboot your Mac.
Please note that this may or may not work. In the end, the bug in Big Sur needs to be fixed by Apple to resolves this problem for good.
MacOS 11.3.1 has seen fixes to its extension manager and the RushFiles drive can be mounted on this version, even on M1 Macs. If you have not done so, please update your Mac to this version.
