In Topic: New Hackintosh with Magma PE6R4-I?

if the drivers are unicode (available for x86 as well as x64) then updating and installing the older driver shouldn't use system issues. (big word is shouldn't).  I would try on a spare drive and see if it works.

Hello Alecwild, I will answer to the best of my ability...


2. how to fix iMessages/FaceTime. you need information from a REAL mac to do this.  Hex edit the ozmosis file and replace the ROM and MLB values that you have scavenged from a real mac. remember it has to be in HEX because they have non printable chars to make it so that you can not just copy paste them.


3. yes, it is a common issue, you will also sometimes get an error on startup saying that the SMC controller is not working correctly/caused a bad shutdown.


hope this helps.




2. iMessage. All of the online fixes for iMessage are for Clover/Chameleon bootloaders. Is there any known fix for Ozmosis?


3. Apparent freeze at shutdown (but I'm not sure). At OS X shutdown, the dock starts to sink, then freezs halfway down. Then my hack shuts off. The fans go off, everything seems normal. Boot is normal (and fast). Is this a freeze that's happening? 


I'm new, but brave and willing to learn. Any advice?

Can this be done on MSI motherboards?


it can be done on ANY EFI boards, but we don't recommend doing it unless there is a backup of some sort, if something goes wrong, and you only have 1 bios, you fragged your board by flashing the bios.

Hello all. Been lurking for a while and decided to give Oz a go on my GA-Z77N-WIFI. Downloaded a modded bios from the German forum for F3 and the 149x (sorry don't have details in front of me at the moment). Q-Flash went fine but I can't get anything to boot. Vanilla 10.10.1 USB boots very slowly from white logo on black screen and then shows the no parking symbol (still waiting for device). I get the same if I try booting a formally working chimera partition (still has some kexts). I removed the EFI folder from an old Clover attempt just to ensure that I was booting vanilla but I see that there is some reference to EFI/Oz etc. I thought Oz was the boot loader but it still needs to load an EFI partition? Any ideas as to what is up? I also tried doing my own patch with MMTool but get the same no parking symbol result... Finally: tried checking a new build of Oz was up but the site appears offline?
Hmm Oz version on that modded bios was probably 1479.

other solution, boot with {command + V} and see what is lagging out... it could be as simple as the bootflag kext-dev-mode=1 is not set (so fakeSMC is not loading...)  I keep with the version I know works and doesn't have issues with the Fusion Drive setup I run that is 894m, also available from that Ozmosis repo.


I am willing to help troubleshoot just post the info requested.



I already started my own thread here, but it's Ozmosis related so I figured I'd post here too. I flashed Ozmosis 1479 on my z77x-ud5h installed Yosemite and got it up and running. I tried using migration assistant to copy over my data and now I get kernel panic. The TM backup was taken from my hack which had 10.10 installed using Clover. I would guess that is what is causing issue but not sure what to do. Please, any and all help is welcome. Thanks!


-picture can be found on my thread i linked to




kext-dev-mode=1 was not added to boot arguments prior to migration so kext dependencies are causing KP

Welcome to the land of Freedom!!!  Freedom from having to worry about what the next revision is going to frag in the boot loader ;P

go into the shell, (use f12) and edit your boot arguments.

not sure what the command in your version of the shell is to edit the nvram is, so check the command list with: help b
