What do you guys think about doing some sort of gofundme/ kickstarter to raise money to get a developer to finish the SD card reader drivers for MacOS?  I think that would be the icing on the cake to get that working.

This is against the rules of the hackintosh communities.


Is anybody using HWP speedShift with the current release. Battery life is not good so far. Sleep uses a lot of battery too.

 

You can try http://www.insanelym...ment/?p=2365608- all you need to do is to add SSDT-pr.aml to your install and enable HWP in the clover config, since the reboot patch is already in place.

 

I'm running this setup now and I think HWP is working and sleep is not draining that bad. But haven't run appleinfokext yet.

Step 7 my friend. You cant skim through a tutorial. You must read it before attempting to execute it

I have an OS X and Windows dual boot. Do you need the EFI Folder which is in the Root of the EFI Partition?

The error "does printf work??" is triggered whenever the kernel cache is broken and you try to boot with osxaptiov2. Had this issue myself after updating to 10.13.2 (which btw is VERY DANGEROUS!) and it took me a very long time reading thru sourcecode to get the idea.

 

You have to boot in recovery, delete the kernel cache manually, touch /Volumes/YOURDRIVE/System/Library/Extensions/ and reboot twice.

No not this problem.

I have figure out that it is memory problem.

I test free200 with slide=0 works well.

My aptiov2 with slide=132 boot field and show printf.

I add 1 to slide to slide=133 with aptiov2 and works well.

So printf is absolutely aptiov problem with memory allocation error.

  1. Installed the latest Clover 4334
  2. Started Update to 10.13.2
  3. Upon reboot added the fake-ID for the Intel GPU
  4. Booted from newly created install MacOS partition
  5. Fail due to missing kexts
  6. Booted Windows, moved kexts to "Other" folder
  7. Reboot, repeat 3 and 4
  8. Install completes but gives error
  9. Reboot with fake-ID to normal MacOS 10.13.2
  10. Repatch for 4k screen
  11. run
    sudo update_dyld_shared_cache
  12. rebuild kernel cache
    sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
    
  13. 10.13.2 works, but copy and paste doesn't this meant in 10.13.1 wrong permissions.

All in all, so far, so good

tl;dr:

  1. Update Clover
  2. move kexts to "Others"
  3. Think of fake-ID when rebooting
  4. Rebuild kernel cache before final reboot

 

EDIT: To reflect some steps I needed to take to get 10.13.2 to really run again

Many people face this problem when update to 10.13.2 and it confirmed aptio problem.

Slide value should calculate by yourself.

My slide was 132 but show printf so I changed to 133 and works well.

Many people confirmed it can be solved by replace with free2000 or change slide value and I test both free2000 and slide are ok.

It is no related with prelink.

1.I try to update from AppStore and redownload 3 times but still show printf.
2.I download full package form AppStore and install but still show printf.
3.I make a full install u-disk from AppStore but still show printf.

So it is no way related with prelink I must to say.

When I change aptio to free2000 or change slide to 133 and all have been ok both update or install from u-disk are all ok.

I have discussed this problem with Sherlock and slice and confirmed it was a memory allocation problem and can be solved by aptio driver.

Thanksz

And I must to say when you use aptio-free2000 you must use slide=0 in boot-arg or it will not be work.

@gujiangjiang, of course its a problem with aptiov2, but exactly the same error triggers on different occasions. It looks like this error triggers, whenever its unable to load the kernel into ram. So its possible it doesnt work because of kernel size (fixable by slide) or a corrupted kernel.

 

I had this issue on two computers, both with correct calculated slide values. both time i was able to fix it by recreating the kernel cache. Ofc its also possible, that this slimmed my kernel to a value my old slide parameters were able to handle.

I have fixed this issues. Will post details on Monday. Running on High Sierra atm after successful update from 10.12. And yes - this is USB-C related problem on High Sierra, and very annoying one.

But still can't figure out what the hell is going on with Thunderbolt - somehow macos doesn't want/can't communicate properly with NHI (so it doesn't handle plug/unplug events and pci-e bridge reinit). But i have solution for proper enabling TB on each reboot :)

P.S. Sorry, can't post all fixes so quickly now as things are messed up atm on my configuration due to different changes TB related, to try/test/debug.

 

hey goodwin, 

any updates on your TB work? do you think you can share what you have so far? in my case my TB USB ports had stopped working (even when plugged in at boot) since I upgraded from 10.12.5 to 10.12.6 (if i recall, although it's been a while and i may be mistaken).

 

I am hoping if I reapply the changes you have made to get the USB (HDMI works fine) ports on the dock working, that should be sufficient for my needs :)
