NTFS on OSX for FREE


I've since upgrade to OSX10.11.4 and "NTFS Free" no longer works. if you have a free solution, please post a comment below, TYVM.

i.e. You don't need to use the non-free Textera nor Paragon

off subject bonus: SSHFS

Update:
OSX 10.10 Yosemite broke this, but it can still be made to work by executing the following commands.  Special thanks to "braines" on the NTFS-FREE comments.

"braines" quote:
" Installing Yosemite broke my install with their stricter rules on code-signed kernal extensions for security reasons. To fix it, you need to run the following 3 commands in terminal before installing/reinstalling: 1) sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1" 2) sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel 3) sudo kextcache -system-caches after the first command you will need to enter your password because of 'sudo' (super user do) this disables the security check. the other 2 commands just clear your cache of any old versions of this kernel extension to give you a fresh slate. After you install/reinstall you'll restart and things seem to be working. I suspect that this will be broken in the next update because this uses the /System/ folder which apple will be phasing out 3d party use of that folder "
