#2393066 macOS Sierra 10.12.4 (16E195) - Final Release - Updated

Posted by Mieze on 28 March 2017 - 01:59 AM

Hmmm, more bad news for Apple hardware users...it's a pity.Well, at least the fact that Apple machines are affected too is good news because it means that they will have to fix it.  :P Mieze

Wow it's an Apple machine, or Hack? Topic updated btwIt's an original iMac12,1 but a friend of mine who is using a hack with a TP-Link TL-WDN4800 called me this evening because his WLAN stopped working after he installed the update. That's why I tested it on my iMac and was able to confirm the issue. Mieze

#2392937 New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

Posted by Mieze on 27 March 2017 - 09:21 PM

Why this packet handling problem (if this is a case) is only in local connection, not in internet traffic?Stupid question! Think about packet roundtrip time in both cases and how a few dozens of microseconds delay caused by PM may affect it.  Problematic computer is Gigabyte PH67A-UD3LR with I3 2130, RTL8100E.No way! The RTL8100E isn't supported by this driver at all. So, I think that power management is not cause of problem - if transmitting data is working.What makes you assume that this rules out a PM issue? Mieze

#2382674 Driver for Realtek's RTL810x Fast Ethernet Series

Posted by Mieze on 11 March 2017 - 08:49 PM

As already announced weeks ago, here is the first development version 2.0.0d3 of the driver. Among several changes I added:Support for Apple's private driver interface in order to resolve stability issues under heavy load and with virtualization software.Support for polled receive mode.Also supports RTL8107E which can be found on a number of new boards/notebooks.Please take into account that this is new driver which is still under development and might have bugs, cause kernel panics, etc so that you should be prepared to recover from these situations. Special thanks to user p569 for testing the driver on his RTL8107!  :thumbsup_anim: Good luck testing!  :cat: Mieze  Attached Files  RealtekRTL8100-V2.0.0d3.zip 612.88KB 30 downloads

#2370174 No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

Posted by Mieze on 19 February 2017 - 11:56 PM

Has anyone tried this on a laptop that has Radeon only, like EliteBooks where HD4000 is not wired on the motherboard?  @Slice. Assuming this works, could it be possible to do this with Clover? Also I already load VBIOS from file with Clover to get QE/CI on HD 7570M. Couldn't I just patch that file so there's no need to flash GPU?Flashing the GPU's VBIOS on a notebook is dangerous and involves the risk of turning your computer into a piece of high-tech scrap. If it's just the VBIOS, patching the VBIOS file which Clover loads should be enough but I doubt that this will solve the problem as notebooks usually have switchable graphics and the switch has to be done properly. Mieze

#2365607 Solution for Qualcomm Atheros AR816x, AR817x and Killer E220x

After updating the source code on GitHub a few days ago, I also updated prebuilt binary in the download section to version 2.2.1, which is optimized for Sierra and also supports polled receive mode. Mieze  :cat:

it is all about kext,10.9 wake up without problem after rebuild kext cache,i have wake up arch linux fail by bad ati video card driver,after update ati video card driver i have wake up arch linux successful.so 10.11 does not have good ati video card driver,10.12.3 does not support my 6670,so Apple has ban pc ati video card for hackintosh.There is no such thing like a ban for certain cards but Apple's driver developers won't waste their time implementing and testing support for additional GPUs which aren't used in Macs. Apple is developing Mac OS for their own hardware, not to make the hackintosh community happy. Mieze

#2361540 Pulsing Power LED while sleeping

Posted by Mieze on 02 February 2017 - 08:44 PM

@JorgeMax: I checked your datasheet and it seems that the ITE8728F doesn't support the fading mode but just plain old blicking with differnt frequencies. Here is the documentation of the LED control register from page 75 of the datasheet: Bildschirmfoto 2017-02-02 um 21.45.43.png 139.92KB 1 downloads Mieze

#2361143 Pulsing Power LED while sleeping

Posted by Mieze on 01 February 2017 - 11:12 PM

I was wondering for a long time if it is possible to have the power LED pulsing on a hackintosh in the same as a real Mac but never really found the time for an in-depth research. Reading through the datasheet of my board's SuperIO, a Nuvoton NCT6776D, I found the following table which confirms that the hardware supports this feature too.  Bildschirmfoto 2017-02-01 um 23.24.49.png 585.29KB 8 downloadsAs sleep/wake is controlled by the DSDT, I had the idea that it might be possible to get the pulsing power LED just with a small DSDT patch and, to my great surprise, its much simpler than expected. But see for yourself. In the DSDT of my board, an Asrock B85 Killer, I found method SLED controlling the switch between on in S0 and blinking mode in S3 (sleep):Method (SLED, 1, NotSerialized){ ENFG (0x0B) If (Arg0) { If (LEqual (OPT7, 0x87)) { Store (0x45, OPT7) } } Else { If (LNotEqual (OPT7, Zero)) { S...

I just wanted to let you know that I'm working on an update of the driver which supports newer hardware and is optimized for Sierra and El Capitan. Mieze  :cat:

#2358300 New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

Posted by Mieze on 27 January 2017 - 04:49 PM

Mieze,I saw freshier sources (8.043) at realtek site. Anything useful in it?I compared the new Linux source against the previous version and found nothing which would justify an update as most of the changes are related to changes inside the Linux kernel. Mieze

#2355731 No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

Posted by Mieze on 23 January 2017 - 10:53 PM

Honestly, this is a little bit off topic, but it seems like more and more real Mac users are affected by this issue too. Obviously, failure by design is their new strategy. See for yourself: http://www.apple.com...lay?page=0&rf=1 Mieze  :lol:

#2351265 No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

Posted by Mieze on 17 January 2017 - 02:47 PM

Since on most laptops the output of the dedicated graphicscard is going into the integrated graphics, which is connected to the display or hdmi and forwards the input, wouldn't this be a problem in macOS, or is it tunneled through the integrated as well on real MBs?Sorry for OT..Device GMUX is a microcontroller which controls an analog switch to multiplex the display outputs from the IGPU and the dedicated GPU to the panel. In order to prevent flickering, GMUX synchronizes both display signals by extending the vertical blanking gap. This procedure is patented by Apple (see link in the Linux driver) so that other manufacturers will probably use a different method to switch GPUs. Provided there is a Linux driver for switching GPUs on your notebook too, you could examine it in order to find out how this task is performed on your machine. Mieze

#2350863 No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

Posted by Mieze on 16 January 2017 - 10:14 PM

Thanks. I guess it's the same an all Macbooks then.All MBPro's and the 2013 MacPro have device GMUX, aka GCON on the MacPro, to switch between GPUs. For details how this works, please see the corresponding linux driver where you can find more information: https://git.kernel.o...s/next-20161220 By the way, as GMUX is an I/O-port mapped device, you could make a FakeGMUX kext (just like FakeSMC emulates Apple's SMC) for notebooks with switchable graphics, provided you know how your notebook switches between both GPUs. Mieze  :cat:
