#2044319 OS X Yosemite DP's builds!

Posted by Micky1979 on 25 July 2014 - 04:41 PM

Beta is newer than DP4. Also I have heard, I don't know if it's true, they are more "legal" if you don't have a developer account (in my case I don't).Sure, but here on InsanelyMac, we discuss talking about regular software only ;) Even tho it's the same as DP4 there is some stuff that has been changed to the os. Some people also wanna clean install Yosemite because updating from AppStore is not always the best implementation for hacks. If you wanna stay on DP4 more freedom to ya, however there are other reasons to update than to just be "on the latest OS".Yep, although InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg are the same as before (i.e. as DP4) but I think/suspect that the installer (the app installer, along with some scripts) was changed, and with this a few small things can be different on the installed System.

News: *Yosemite Beta 1 available! e-mail received by Apple a few minutes ago, so DP's time finished!  ..downloading... :thumbsup_anim: Additional info: @fantomas1, perhaps a new dedicated topic is recommended?  Anyone tried clean installing the Public Beta and using the IOGraphicsFamily kext patch?  How is it working for y'all?*yes, I had not noticed your post :hysterical:  ...and I'll try as soon as the download is finished :P Micky

#2038227 can we get back the apple logo on boot?

Chameleon inject a boot logo....in someway Maybe a bootloader downgrade is recommended to all lovers of the "boot logo" Micky :P

DSMOS is not arriving, meaning FakeSMC is not loading. Boot in single user and load it manually. Good luck! Micky, is Pandora already updated to support Yosemite? It's still my one-click tool of choice, hope the development is not abandoned... Pandora was ready with many new things, until he came out Yosemite. The new installer breaks the Pandora system of choices during installation. I'm doing so a totally new thing. I hope it works. Unfortunately school is over, and I'm doing a summer job ..... so free time is little left  My question was:  But........ then tell me if you think that Mac-FC02E91DDD3FA6A4 is not supported platform... Even if that NSLog happens  for any other reason.... Probably do not even make sense to get out a message during installation that a supported platform is not supported.  Maybe it makes more sense to understand why?

He was just making fun of me, apple didn't reintroduced.  Yes it is, but I hope nobody will be offended  :) .  I'm just thinking that someone needs to change its automated system to make USB installer, no? :hysterical:

 Agreed, Clover is the future, no doubt. But do not underestimate Chameleon, because is easy to use and is starting point for a long time... so much that everyone can give simple advice to new users. .....and the second step can be Clover, after obtaining the Desktop in OSx. In this moment I can boot using Chameleon or Clover in UEFI mode,  because they are both on my hard drive, and can coexist. And maybe some changes will come  to not disturb Clover operating in legacy mode..........(in testing) ;)

 No don't work!!!!!!will not to boot.... This my problem after put UseKernelCahe=NoLINK What do you mean @Micky1979 My ocbp: I mean that is not a kernel detection problem (as you can see).  Looking at your video, and seeing your org.chameleon.Boot.plist (and also what you don't type at boot time), you probably forgot to write kext-dev-mode=1.Why?If you do not use the kernelcache (what "UseKernelCache = No" means), then you're just using your kernel. Explain. The kernelcache is an archive (compressed with lzss algorithm at the moment (remember the lzvn that we can not use?)), and contains only the kexts suit for your System using the kernel references: For this the boot becomes very fast, otherwise how could you see, it takes scanning of all kexts present inside /System/Library/Extensions. If you can boot fine with kernelcache, it's because you've previously used kext-dev-mode=1, and then you've rebuilt the kernelcache using this flag...

 You can test this?  thanks  Sorry guys, I have been traveling to go on vacation as I saw what you typed while traveling. Attached the bdmesg logs from Both Lion and Yosemite, Using UseKernelCache = No.And it's working from both. Having seen what happened on the previous pages, I have some doubts that many have yet realized (but this probably never going to happen for some), which is the purpose of the tests, and how it should be done. A simple does not work is not acceptable without knowing "where" has stopped.The boot loader that I posted is 100% working  on my system on all OS I have (OSX 10.7.5, 10.9.3, 10.10, Linux and Windows 8).sorry but I have come here on the topic of Ermac to lend a hand (...maybe there's a personal reason, why Clover works fine for me), but I see that many do not even know we are talking about, not even the most seemingly simple things. So, from now on, who does not listen simple tips, can cook for me...

The fact is that some people say that everything is ok, others who say that there are problems. Then I recommend and I repeat to do the test in this way: 1) Chameleon can not boot the installer  ATM w/o workaround (but nobody forbids anyone to do what he wants obviously), but Until someone has found a way to unpack the kernelcache lzvn compressed, is better not to speak about Installer, because it is really useless now(Except Ermac says otherwise). 2) Posting only if the conditions are as those indicated:  - original kernel path and name must be  /System/Library/Kernels/kernel.  - bootcaches.plist with the "preferred compression" set to lzss (nothing else) - delete the "Kernel" key in your org.chameleon.Boot.plist: <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> - set the ocbp (or give it at boot time) to not read the kernelcache: <key>UseKernelCache</key><string...

Chameleon searching mach_kernel   :blush:Ok, this is the right answare (i.e. do not work) @Micky1979, Yeah, it's weird but I'm only reporting what I'm seeing :).  I make sure to name the kernel "kernel" in Yosemite System/Library/Kernels so maybe autodetection is not 100% working... Funnily enough, if I set the key UseKernelCache to No in o.c.B.plist it works to boot ignoring caches without specifying kernel location!  Only if I use -f and letting chameleon autodetect the kernel does the error happen. If you look at the procedure I outlined for the creation of my USB, rebuilding the kernelcache with FakeSMC.kext inside after editing /usr/standalone/bootcaches.plist is exactly what I do....Sorry but this from your post is a "abomination".2. Place and rename mach_kernel to Volumes/Installer/System/Library/Kernels/kernelYou do not need to rename nothing, because mach_kernel does not exist in Yosemite.This is the problem of all problems, because it rea...

Posted by Micky1979 on 16 June 2014 - 06:14 PM

I tested no more mach_kernel.I delete mach_kernel from my root directory... :DAnd I remove my kernel-/System/Library/Kernels/kernel.... Ok, I'm Italian, so i can not understand well English.... But you have remove both?????? or what? Using only kernelcache?????? Piango...  Mach kernel is hidden, show the hidden files first.But you can see mach_kernel in Yosemite?????????????????????????????? Why????????????????????????????????????????????????? There are no mach_kernel in Yosemite -> OSx 10.10, no longer exist. ne exist pas, non c'è più!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF YOU HAVE mach_kernel in your root (in Yosemite, not in the case of previous OSes), this is not a Vanilla way, this is not the correct way, this can't be for the future: it's only a workaround! Ok?????????????

Guys please, ...... :blush:  REMOVE the /mach_kernel from your Yosemite partitionand use only the one in /System/Library/Kernels/kernel This test must be done in this way....pleeeeeeeeeeease  NOTE: INTENDED IN YOUR ALREADY INSTALLED OSX 10.10. FOR THE INSTALLER WE CAN TEST LATER

Ok guys, so the job queue faster.  @HUSABER yuo can't boot w/o kext-dev-mode=1? You have not installed the default theme?  EDITFinally The GUI icons also are displayed? Or generic icon are displayed for Yosemite? Apart the error for the lzzs bad compression... The kernel path is automatically detected?It work, you can see it in the @ekica bdmesg

Husaber, can you kindly post your bdmesg? :) I tried installing the earlier revisions that were compatible with Yosemite, and after installing it onto my SSD, it wouldn't boot Yosemite.  Would only boot Mavericks.  Figured it had something to do with the kernel being in different places or something.  Was also hanging at boot with FileNVRAM. Can you try again and see the differents. But for better results you can try to boot w/o any modules. FileNVRAM.dylib is not bootloader-related, it comes from third parties.
