#2227659 Clover Bug/Issue Report and Patch

Posted by philip_petev on 27 March 2016 - 09:59 AM

As suggested, reverted edk2 back to r20288 and was able to build Clover on both my desktop (10.9.5, Xcode 6.2) and my laptop (10.11.4, Xcode 7.3). The Apple's compiler changes have nothing to do with the recent build issues, it's all the edk2 base.

#2187227 Create font files for Bootloader GUI's

Posted by philip_petev on 10 November 2015 - 01:53 PM

Here's what I use to squash the theme icons with imagemagick for such cases:wsize=`identify -format "%w" "$1"`hsize=`identify -format "%h" "$1"`convert "$1" -resize 75%x100 -background transparent -gravity center -extent "$wsize"x"$hsize" "$1"The line squashes the image first. Look at the resize option value, it resizes only the image width by 75% (actually 74.9%, that's vesa width / display width * 100, for my display - 1024 VESA on 1366 display) and the height remains at 100 (%), then moves the result in the center of the canvas and then extends the image canvas to its original size (the wsize and hsize variables).Works pretty good for the icons, but won't work directly for the font images. Maybe if your script can squash the font symbols, using the same technique...

Posted by philip_petev on 31 August 2015 - 09:38 AM

Got the same build error, but managed to fix it without changing anything to CGP: (my CGP folder is located at ~/Repo/CloverGrowerPro)cd ~/Repo/CloverGrowerPro/edk2svn up -r 18198 (answered tc to all conflicts)cd ~/Repo/CloverGrowerPro/edk2/Clover./ebuild.sh cleanall (just in case, maybe not needed in most cases)./ebuild.sh cleanpkg (just in case, maybe not needed in most cases)cloverproThat way, I was able to build it and since the Clover sources are already the latest, the CGP script won't trigger an edk2 source update. And this is what will do next time when a new Clover version has been released:cd ~/Repo/CloverGrowerPro/edk2/Cloversvn up./ebuild.sh cleanall (just in case, maybe not needed in most cases)./ebuild.sh cleanpkg (just in case, maybe not needed in most cases)cloverpro

#2117379 NVidia GTX 970 panic on shutdown

Posted by philip_petev on 03 March 2015 - 05:03 PM

Same here. EVGA GTX 650 on GB H77N-WiFi, OS X 10.10.x, Clover and iMac13,2. The interesting part is that those KP occur only with the stock OS X drivers, there is no such problem with the Web driver, but the HDMI audio doesn't work with them. Edit: forgot to mention, the KPs occur only if the display is connected to the HDMI port, no problems on the other two DVI ports.

#2101856 Yosemite: Audio - Realtek ALC AppleHDA

Posted by philip_petev on 09 January 2015 - 08:20 AM

toleda, there is something you should mention in your first post. Repairing the kext permissions before rebuilding the kext cache becomes a must in Yosemite. If there is even one file with wrong permissions inside the kext (the zml.zlib files in the current case), the whole kext won't be included in the cache, no matter if the kext-dev-mode flag has been specified or not.

#2089726 A piece of warning with OS X 10.10.1

Posted by philip_petev on 27 November 2014 - 07:46 AM

There is a bug in the 10.10.1 install app, that may cause early reboots on some boards (mostly with HDMI ports). The freshly installed 10.10.1 system is also affected. Symptoms: you have installed OS X (UEFI or legacy way) and you have installed on the first run all support kexts for your board, as well as your regular DSDTs/SSDTs. On the next boot, the system reboots itself, instead of bringing up the graphics. There is probably a wrongly set setting that also is being passed to the already installed system, regarding the default audio output and it seems that the wrongly selected output doesn't play well with some corrections like HDMI audio edits, no matter if they are DSDT/SSDT/bootloader HDMI audio injections and that setting causes these early reboots. In order to go outside this boot loop, the audio must be enabled (but without the HDMI audio) and the default audio output must be changed. When you enable the audio, the first thing you'll see in System Preferences / Sound /...

#2077410 Thunderbolt Firmware Update 1.2 doesn't seem to install from App Store

Posted by philip_petev on 28 October 2014 - 05:50 AM

I successfully hid the Thunderbolt update 1.2 under Yosemite. To do that use the softwareupdate command (no need to do a sudo).  Because putting the latest firmware revision in SMBIOS worked for Mavericks but not for Yosemite. That worked for me too, thanks !

So I am not the only one  :D See here , somme people say dont need ! http://www.insanelym...0#commentsStart Yup, I can confirm, even with the kernel, extracted from Essentials.pkg and put into /System/Library/Kernels on the flash drive, Chameleon r2401 can't find it without the Kernel key, added in org.chameleon.boot.plist.

#2066921 MAC OS X Yosemite Beta 1,2,3 Hackintosh Guide

Posted by philip_petev on 06 October 2014 - 06:04 PM

There is something missing in this guide. One more key should be added to org.chameleon.boot.plist:<key>Kernel</key><string>/System/Library/Kernels/kernel</string>otherwise the bootloader won't ever find it. Tested with the latest Chameleon.

#2043721 Atheros 9K Series ROM Modding Tools And Recovery Kit

Posted by philip_petev on 24 July 2014 - 05:57 AM

Nice! About the last part, modprobe -r ath9k && modprobe ath9k is quite enough to restart the Atheros module, because it unloads all (unused by any other module) module dependencies as well.

#1948763 [Success] HP ProBook 4x30s 4x40s

Posted by philip_petev on 26 September 2013 - 12:09 PM

It's all good here! Updating was a pain in the ass though (started from DP1 up to DP8, each update took ~5min to download and ~13min to install) but in the end everything works as expected. Thanks! Glad you've made it!  I've got few questions though: - my cpu multiplier doesn't go below x11 (resulting in 1.09GHz clock) whilst CPU on ML was running as low as on ~792MHz (not sure if this is the exact number) Same here, don't know why, must be something with the new AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext. BTW, HWMonitor shows 11x most of the time, when DPCIManager 1.5 shows 8x, I have no idea which one is right.  - pressing the power button makes my laptop go to sleep instead of displaying a window with sleep/reboot/shutdown options (default Maverics behaviour?) I haven't tried this yet. I'll check it later. Edit: ok, it seems the behavior of this button is changed in Mavericks: single press - the laptop goes to sleeppress and hold for a second or two - the menu with the...

Posted by philip_petev on 25 September 2013 - 06:24 PM

Ok, here we go!I used mostly several guides like this one, but RehabMan told me some important details. The things you'll need: 1. Install OS X Mavericks DP4.app (recommended) or Install OS X Mavericks DP1.app (not so recommended, but will do) or InstallESD.dmg from any of them.2. The latest Chameleon bootloader.3. Pacifist (for extracting the mach_kernel)4. The following files (included in this archive):Extensions/FakeSMC.kextExtensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kextExtensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kextExtensions/RealtekRTL8111.kextExtensions/AirPortAtherosInjector.kextmodules/FanReset.dylib5. An empty flash drive (8 GB or bigger)6. ProBook Installer 6.1.6 I've made most of the work in Terminal to skip the "showing/hiding the hidden files" thing. 1. Mount your InstallESD.dmg (or open the content of the Install OS X Mavericks DP4.app and mount it from there), go in Finder to OS X Install ESD/Packages/BaseSystemBinaries.pkg, open the package with Pacifist and extract t...

Could you please write what exactly did you do to create a mavericks usb stick manually? MyHack doesn't work very well for me. I was going to write some kind of tutorial, but I'll do it when I get back at home (I'm currently at work).
