Installed myhack.kext on Yosemite
(Well I didn't; a buddy did thinking he was cool)

This is a hackintosh type files.

Verbose seizes as does single user mode and attempting to boot goes to fifty and no further.

In verbose ending line. powerGatingDown

Looking for commands and options I can use in terminal to not loose my data.

Contact the creator of the KEXT and see if they can offer some assistance.

Thanks for responding everyone. I can boot into recovery (yes)

----------

PowerGatingDown is referring to what --> ? How do I resolve ?

If you know the location where the KEXT are installed, open the terminal application and remove them. That is why I suggested contacting the developer for help.

I would suggest this solution as well.

I would even prefer this solution over further tampering with the kext files. The damage is already done and unless the solution is easy and clear, it likely will be better to repair it altogether. Not to mention that a reinstall can be done in 15 minutes or less.

I agree.

If all that was installed was the myHack kext (in /System/Library/Extensions), a simply kext deletion followed by kext cache rebuild should fix everything.

If the kext was installed with an installation of myHack application tool, well, erm... myHack does not support Yosemite, so... who knows?

Look for a myHack app in "Applications" and, if found, delete it entirely.

As long as you buddy did not do any other stupid thing like run myHack->myFix, you should be Ok. If he did run myFix, you might as well just reinstall your OS, then shoot the bastard! Twice!
