#2583241 SSD files Corruption

Posted by Dr. Hurt on 03 February 2018 - 06:10 AM

I too had issues using paragon both on mac and windows. Tuxera on mac and Macdrive on Windows worked better for me. That aside, I had SSD corruption when I enabled trim. Took me a while to narrow it down to that. Best leave my drive’s auto garbage collection.

I'm looking forward to progress on protecting HD3000 memory. That aside, many thanks for daring to work on this :')

Updated to Clover 4200, all working perfectly. Full backlight range, save/restore across reboots -- working natively with stock Apple kexts :D Thanks Slice, syscl, and everyone else.

Here's how to use the new custom value: #73 BTW, I think SetIntelBacklight should be deprecated/removed now that we have this.

Yeah that's what I thought, so I did it on my Haswell laptop before and it made no difference with my backlight. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk I wasn't sure that the max brightness issue affected newer models. Anyway, for Haswell and Broadwell, LEVX should be 0x0AD90000 and Skylake and Kabylake should be 0x056C0000. Perhaps this patch should be dynamic according to device id / CPU model. Or maybe customizable in config.plist

https://www.dropbox....94.pkg.zip?dl=0 Thank you very much. Saved me a lot of hard time :) Thanks for the proposition. I committed it to 4193 and want to see tests. May be, but my simple method is enough for me. I will implement this but make please more accurate for the value0x07100000or0x0710or<1007>or0x1007 0x07100000 is correct. (at least for Sandy/Ivy, newer iGPUs might need other values) Just tested build 4194 with SetIntelMaxBacklight=True and it works perfectly. I get full range of brightness.  :D

The best experience I had on this laptop was with 10.10 USB 3.0 worked perfectly with patched apple xhci drivers

Hello. Im interesting this laptop. How about usb3.0? No need extra kext? 나의 LG-F800S 의 Tapatalk에서 보냄 It has a Renesas XHCI controller which is not very well supported by modern macOS. I use oyen's driver which mostly works... Perhaps there's some progress on this that I'm not aware of?!! That aside, it's the most compatible hardware I ever had. And I've had a lot.

Maybe Apple intends to only roll out APFS for systems with SSDs? Leaving systems with mechanical HDDs on HFS...

I use mXHCD.kext and it works. Far from stable though. But at least my USB 3.0 external storage works at full speed.

#2360402 With "PNLF" internal display turns off after apple logo

Posted by Dr. Hurt on 31 January 2017 - 04:56 PM

I know. But where does (did?) that zero come from? I obviously never set brightness to zero before shutdown. Must have been nvram corruption (Clover issue?) Once again, I haven't had that problem in some time.

#2354226 HD3000 freezing in Sierra

Posted by Dr. Hurt on 22 January 2017 - 08:00 AM

UPDATE: I've done a lot of experimenting and researching and here are my findings: - Freezes are caused by a mismatch between the ports defined in the driver's frame buffer table and the physical ports in the laptop.I fixed them by loading the second frame buffer table which limits the driver to 1 LVDS port. I don't use HDMI or VGA so I don't mind.I think the same could be done by patching the first table to match BOTH port number and type. I prefer DSDT since it's cleaner."AAPL,snb-platform-id", Buffer (0x04){0x00, 0x00, 0x02, 0x00    //load the 2nd frame buffer table (0x02)                 }, - Artifacts are caused by IGPU memory corruption due a clover bug.Clover somehow messes with the BIOS-reserved memory for IGPU.apianti and Slice know about the issue and couldn't fix it (very long ago) Slide=0 as boot-arg reduces the artifacts significantly.Installing 8GB of RAM also seems to fix...

Can't wait to get the working kext Thank you very much, you are so kind Here's the kext with the Sierra fix and compiled using xcode 8 with Sierra as a target. Tested on my system and it works.  I'll probably be updating my ALPS driver to add V6 support since my driver has a more up to date base. Works better in my case. I copy the same clover folder that is working from the usb flash to EFI partition, and add the clover entry to boot menu,after that it loads the clover main ui but when I choose the macOS partition nothing happens I don't know why its not working, the clover folder work in usb flash but not work form EFI partition! Probably because you're using UEFI. I would recommend you switch to legacy. EDIT: THIS DRIVER IS ONLY FOR ALPS V6 Dr. Hurt I have problems installing Mac OS Sierra get the following message:com.apple.xpc.launchd (org.ntp.sntp.134) Warning Service exit With abnormal code:1 You can help me I use your...

I will try this later, but I want to move clover to EFI partionnow I boot to osx from your clover folder, I but it to a flash and use it but I want to move the clover to EFI partion like Mohammed did in the first page of this guide, I make the EFI partion like this:newfs_msdos -v EFI /dev/disk0s1mkdir /Volumes/EFImount_msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFIbut when I copy clover from the flash to this partion its not working If you format the hard drive as GPT using disk utility, you do NOT need to reformat the EFI partition.All you need to do is run the clover installer, select customize and select ESP option. Then use EFI mounter utility to mount the EFI partition and replace the Clover folder. As for the ALPS kernel panic, it's probably caused by the old version of xcode I'm using.
