#1824009 Why InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86

Posted by PookyMacMan on 31 May 2012 - 05:47 PM

Many users wonder why we do not support tonymac's products here at InsanelyMac. The reason is that we believe he is a commercial spin-off of the OSx86 scene, and it's not in the spirit of OSx86 to have commercial intents with development. These are the main reasons why we don't approve posting his material here (why he's a commercial spin-off): 1. His software is not open source. This is often confused because most people equate open source software with free software. This is definitely true, but it doesn't grasp the entire scope of open source; open source also includes releasing source code for the product, which tonymac fails to do. The OSx86 community believes everything should be open source. :) 2. The construction of his site is set up with emphasis on donation buttons and (affiliate) links to Amazon and Newegg, hinting at interests of profit. 3. The intent of gaining profits is basically confirmed by marketing his projects with suggestions of donation...

#1885544 [GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI

Posted by GhostRaider on 02 February 2013 - 06:54 PM

  Welcome to the Intel® HD Graphics guide for computers with 1st Generation Intel® Core™ or 2010 Intel® Arrandale processors! Before you begin, you will need to have OS X working properly on your computer before you attempt to enable graphics acceleration. This is to ensure that everything will work out as smoothly as possible. If you do not have OS X on your computer, you can find more information about how to install OS X on your computer by searching around the InsanelyMac forums. Please keep in mind that every computer will be different. In other words, your computer's performance will vary and not all computers will have graphics acceleration due to the OEM's hardware configuration. OS X was never designed for PCs, but you can make it work like a Mac! Don't expect everything to be working though. In the case of your Intel® HD Graphics IGPU, your mileage may vary (YMMV). More information about this will be presented as you read along.   Before we begin, with...

#1898032 New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

Posted by Mieze on 17 March 2013 - 08:48 PM

A New Driver for Realtek RTL8111 Due to the lack of an OS X driver that makes use of the advanced features of the Realtek RTL81111/8168 series I started a new project with the aim to create a state of the art driver that gets the most out of those NICs which can be found on virtually any cheap board on the market today. Based on Realtek's Linux driver (version 8.035.0) I have written a driver that is optimized for performance while making efficient use of system resources and keeping the CPU usage down under heavy load. Key Features of the DriverSupports Realtek RTL8111/8168 B/C/D/E/F/G found on recent boards.Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission.No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer.TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit).TCP segmentation offload under IPv4.Support...

Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?   DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.   Current Version: 2.9.9.2 The system dumps are saved in an organised DarwinDumperReports folder at a location of your choice using the 'Custom Path' option in the UI (the default directory is the...

#2147152 [GUIDE] USB Fix El Capitan 10.11

Posted by pokenguyen on 22 June 2015 - 11:39 AM

How to fix Intel USB ports in OS X El Capitan my thanks to stinga111 and VCH888 for contribution in USB problems  After some time try to fix USB ports on El Capitan, I just realize that 10.11 has a new mechanism to constraint the USB ports to your SMBIOS. If your Intel USB ports work just fine (without GenericUSBXHCI) but stop working on 10.11, it's probably your ports are not defined in SMBIOS. The ports may work after you change to another SMBIOS with suitable ports, but you can edit the ports for your SMBIOS. 1. Load the USB kexts The new kexts controlling USB in 10.11 are AppleUSBEHCIPCI.kext and AppleUSBXHCIPCI.kext inside IOUSBHostFamily.kext. You can check the ports of your current SMBIOS by opening these files: USB 2.0/System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBHostFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBEHCIPCI.kext/Contents/Info.plistUSB 2.0 and USB 3.0/System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBHostFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBXHCIPCI.kext/Contents/Info.pl...

#2107186 IntelMausiEthernet.kext for Intel onboard LAN

Posted by Mieze on 31 January 2015 - 12:26 AM

This project is dedicated to the memory of Mausi, the cat I loved more than anybody else.  Mausi.jpg 51.12KB 119 downloads A few days before Christmas I started my latest project, a new driver for recent Intel onboard LAN controllers. My intention was not to replace hnak's AppleIntelE1000e.kext completely but to deliver best performance and stability on recent hardware. That's why I dropped support for a number of older NICs. Currently the driver supports: 5 Series82578LM82578LC82578DM82578DC6 and 7 Series82579LM82579V8 and 9 SeriesI217LMI217VI218LMI218VI218LM2I218V2I218LM3100 Series (since V2.1.0d0)I219LMI219VKey Features of the DriverSupport for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission.No-copy receive and transmit.

#1543024 Chameleon 2.3svn Official PKG Installer & Binaries

Posted by ErmaC on 05 September 2010 - 02:49 AM

The Chameleon bootloader is an open source project and is released in accordance with the GPL v2 license. The source code can be found at the voodooprojects' forge where it can be downloaded and compiled.If you are not comfortable downloading and compiling source code or you just want a quick method of obtaining the last binaries then there is a Buildbot dedicated to compiling and making ready up to date builds for download. Chameleon can then be installed to your system using the Terminal and a lot of people choose this option as they have full control over what they're doing. However, other users prefer to have it automated and that is why the Chameleon package installer exists. This topic is dedicated to the Chameleon/Enoch package installer.   What can I install to? • It can install to a hard drive or USB flash drive using either an MBR or hybrid GPT/MBR, and can install to FAT32, HFS and ExFat partitions.Note: the Installer allow the installation to the EFI partitio...
