Seems like dev manager for MacOS yosemite isnt working
my issue is during the installation
I have a macbook pro ( 2011) and recently installed the Yosemite beta OS. There is an issue with the Sena discovery of USB ports managed by Yosemite, at least on macbook pros. I was able to upgrade firmware using a PC, so no harm to me.
My professional opinion ( I am a certified Apple tech, and CompTia A+) is that Yosemite manages hardware resources like USB in such a way that the Sena app cannot "see" it.
This may be resolved with a Apple SMS firmware update in the future. Yosemite is very buggy with hardware, just check Apple Support Forums, lots of issues!
Installed the Sena Device Manager on a MacBook Air with OS X 10.10.2 without issue. When installing applications from outside of the App Store, you may need to right click the installation app and then choose OPEN. At this point you will have to enter your admin username and password (depending on security settings on your Mac). Then you can choose OPEN and the app will install.
Installation was problem free and I was able to update the firmware on my Sena SMH-10 without difficulty.
Its now March 2015 and I'm thinking the issue Jim Stinnett had/had is still and issue.
Just checking in. The issue is NOT with the installation of the Sena Device Mgr, it's the ability of the application to use the USB port. It installs just fine, no issue.
However ...I ended up using a PC to do the firmware update. (win 7 professional)
My take on the Yosemite/Apple usb thing is :
The Yosemite issue may not replicate on every Apple machine. There is a range of USB drivers that are all mostly specific to the individual machines. So the Sena update software may work fine on some machines, and not others. Apple typically packages the various hardware drivers and firmware (SMC) updates in the periodic updates, now distributed through the App Store. So they may eventually resolve the USB thing by publishing the right update package. Maybe.
This USB Not Found problem is totally on Apple, though, not on Sena. Personally, I am going to revert back to Mavericks on my macbook pro, which is a "MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011)" and wait for a better version of Yosemite to be built. There are some other things they need to sort out, too.
Just for kicks, I also tried a VMWare machine (running WIn 7) on the macbook pro, and got the same results. So there is a problem with the USB drivers and the application layer of the OS in Yosemite. The Virtual machine "captures" devices from the native OS (Yosemite) so the Virtual machine can use them.
If you do do a Google web search using the search term "UBS not working, Yosemite" you can see it's not just a few people. It's a known issue..
