In Topic: Patch for using NVMe under macOS Sierra is ready.

thanks for your reply!


yeah i wouldn't be able to boot without a nvme driver.


I followed your github page to install (of course with NVMeGeneric.kext removed first) HackrNVMeFamily in /S/L/E, or in CLOVER/kexts/Other

both led to same result, that boot process failed at early stage with "Still waiting for root device"


Did I miss something for the installation? I read something about Sierra adds support for using NVMe as a boot device. Does it imply that HackrNVMeFamily doesn't support boot in El Capitan?


Back to what you've mentioned, I've tried to boot into another El Capitan install on a usb SSD, to get the ioreg. Please have a look at the new ioreg files (before and after loading HackrNVMe manually). Thanks!


Both ioreg show no HackrNVMe loaded.

Make sure you created it correctly.

Make sure you removed IONVMeFamily.kext.

Make sure you installed HackrNVMeFamily correctly.


Note: There is growing evidence to suggest Pike's patches do not work with (certain?) Intel SSDs.  You should purchase a Samsung 950 Pro NVMe.

Hi Rehabman could you please help on my NVMe issue?


The generated patch for some reason doesn't work for my NVMe, i have to use NVMeGeneric.kext for now.


I was using the patch-nvme script from your repository:

    ./patch_nvme.sh 10_11_6

with the output:

Creating patched HackrNVMeFamily-10_11_6.kext

Vanilla MD5 matches expected MD5 entry (c236c91f4f20c1f2fb9f828f3ffc0a6c)
Patched MD5 matches expected MD5 entry (040b01cd4bfb18b8df793b96998810b7)
But when i use HackrNVMeFamily-10_11_6.kext to boot, i always get "Still waiting for root device" error, and have to force shutdown the computer.
what could be the problem please?
Thank you!



This ioreg shows NVMeGeneric.kext in use.

Make sure you install the HackrNVMeFamily correctly.

here is 



add. we have to wait Sierra open source IOHIDFamily. and maybe developer will fix this issue.


thank you


Installing only IOHIDFamily.kext will seriously break many other kexts.  You can update kernel cache to see:

sudo kextcache -i /


I notice in the new IOHIDFamily.kext/PlugIns there is IOHIDNXEventRouter.plugin, which is new in 10.12...

I followed the procedure outlined in the post # 8 of this thread, and yeah applied all the patches..

What do you mean by "applied... patches"?
Do you mean "added them to your config.plist"?

And please note that the patches in post #8 are not correct for the final 10.12.0.
If you read this thread through, you will see there are changes required (this kind of thing requires careful reading)

You can find the final patches at my NVMe patch github: https://github.com/RehabMan/patch-nvme
The README describes the purpose of each plist file.

clover will boot from usb but still use the files from the HDD instead of what is on the stick.


Clover always uses files from the partition it was started from.
