In Topic: macOS High Sierra - Final Release is out! (17A365)

Yesterday, 03:21 PM

Hey guys, how goes.
I'm trying to install High Sierra on an external USB here, and it doesn't seem to work.
I've got the installer going, that completes fine to an external USB on APFS.
Then there's an initial reboot, at that time you need to boot the partition to continue the installation. That seems to reboot quickly.
I boot again to continue the installation, then that completes successfully in ~15 minutes.

But then when I try to boot the installed system, I get errors at the Clover level, in the apfs.efi  layer:


fs_read_stream:12997: failed to lookup pos 0 in obj 18
can't read cache..
read error 0x7

fs_get_inode_with_hint:7825: failed to load inode 764087 ret 22.

Anybody has an idea?

Keep at it buddy, Got the card reader working on my Envy 15T-J000 with the 5227 ID, I purchased a 16gb SD card with read speeds of up to 80MB/s but when I bench it on BlackMagic Disk Speed test it only shows speeds shown an not what the card can do... it is a Class 10, I know its a BETA release an I applaud your work on it. :D Keep it up sir


I'm highly jealous of your advanced SD technology there  :lol:


I never thought this project would become what it is now. I'm having a ton of problems with the BSD driver and after writing to the original authors it seems like the best course of action now is to base off the Linux driver.
Unfortunately I'm nowhere near a release yet, still working on writing that.
I'm slowly starting to become an expert on the SD subsystem, lol

My laptop build is a HP Envy DV7-7212nr with Realtek RTS5229 PCI Express Card Reader.


I attempted to load the second version of your RTSX.kext.  SIP is disabled, Kext loaded to S/L/E, permissions reset and cache rebuilt.

  • Kext fails to load

Added _OSX patch in clover per Dmitry's suggestion

  • Kext fails to load

Added SSDT-XOSI.aml per Dmitry's suggestion

  • Kext fails to load.

Tried to load kext manually from terminal

  • Kext still fails to load.

System logs attached.                                 Thank you for your work on this project!!

Yeah the next release will likely fix that..


Everything is done EXCEPT for the sleep support which I still can't get working. The chip seems to be utterly confused coming back from sleep even though i'm restoring register state and all..

Hi folks, I know it's been a while.
After doing some more study I realized what went wrong while writing my driver.

Now I found a way to make power management (Machine sleep) a reality.


Stay tuned! And thanks so much for the folks who pushed me to not give up on this!
