#2233844 How to Play Trailers in iTunes

Posted by theconnactic on 21 April 2016 - 09:55 PM

Is this a way to circumvent the HDCP bug that is plaguing OSX86 since Ivy Bridge? Or just a solution for your Sandy Bridge hardware (which is not affected by the bug anyway)?

#2214814 [AMD] OS X El Capitan (10.11) FX Kernel Task Force

Posted by theconnactic on 11 February 2016 - 06:39 AM

In the old days, these graphics issues were related to caches, if I remember correctly, not a given instruction set. I remember this, Sinetek was the one who found it out. Perhaps it's the same thing now... Fact is, the XNU kernel is getting each day more missing stuff in comparison to the real binary Apple distributes. Wonder how long until Apple stops releasing it as open source altogether.

Also my ram is only showing four Gb it should be eight I have only one stick by the way... really weird, and the last thing is audio, which is a common thing, i appreciate any help guys, thanks in advance. Jancarlos, for general post install help, I suggest you open a new topic for the subject in this forum. So many advances were made in this topic, let's keep it clean! All the best!

#2180653 OS X 10.11.1 is out!

Posted by theconnactic on 22 October 2015 - 05:20 AM

Uneventful update. The clover patch for AppleHDA still works after updating. Honestly, I don't use either Office, Voice Over or emoji, so I noticed no changes at all.

Posted by theconnactic on 07 October 2015 - 03:57 PM

Yup, typo. But you got it. :P P.S.: Kaby Lake is not exactly a tick: if it doesn't bring anything other than native USB3.1, I'm waiting for 2017's Cannonlake.

#2172452 (GUIDE) 10.11 full speed USB (series 8/9) keeping vanilla SLE

Posted by theconnactic on 03 October 2015 - 05:38 AM

Ok..so i can use only injector without modified DSDT..because i dont understand never ...about DST  :lol: PS: Now you see all USB3 HISpeed in system ? I don't know if you can: I guess it depends on the board. Mine - Z97 Gryphon - seems to be one of the lucky ones. You should try and see. P.S.: Yes! And now my portable Samsung M3 has RW speeds over 80mb/s again (tested with BlackMagic). P.P.S.: Mind you, I use a vanilla ("virgin") DSDT: no patches since I moved from a Gigabyte H77 to my current Asus Z97. P.P.P.S.:  Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 2.38.08 AM.png 166.23KB 34 downloads :D

@Weg @PJIf i use only injector kext ...without rename usb device in DSDT ...what appenead ? I have the answer for you, Magnifico: I just tested the 9-Series injector as is, without any alterations (since I simply cannot follow the guide): it worked, and now I have my ports back. Thank you, PJALM and Weg, and perhaps you should add this piece of info to your guide: if your devices already have the appropriate names (XHC instead of XHC1, etc), you should try and use the injector as is. All the best! It does nothing It did for me. :)

Hello, Weg and PJALM! As I said in another topic, before Weg directed me to this one: under Yosemite, of course, all of my USB3 ports work at full speed, and under El Capitan, they all work with USB2 maximum speed. So I thought this guide would be perfect for me, but... What to do if my vanilla DSDT already shows XHC instead of XHC1 etc., and all the SSP addresses are 0? Please take a look:   System DSDT.zip 46.67KB 52 downloads This is an ASUS Gryphon Z97 (an otherwise really nice board), with 6 USB3 blue ports (2 front from mid-board, four at the back panel) and 4 USB2 black ports (all at the back panel) plus more 4 USB2 ports at mid-board that I simply don't use because of limitations of my case. Please take also a look at my IOJones output (different from expected: it doesn't differentiate between SSP and HS):   Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 1.41.20 AM.png 205.12KB 35 downloads Looking for directions, since I don't know how to...

#2169572 OS X El Capitan Test Thread

Posted by theconnactic on 22 September 2015 - 03:20 AM

In 2014, Mavericks stole Snow Leopard crown as the best OSX version ever released with 10.9.2. My first week with El Capitan for daily usage (discounting a botched experience with a dp version I had a couple of days ago) makes me believe El Capitan will have this crown from day one. The performance bump (perceived, not benchmarked) is significant, my friends! All the best!

#2168062 OS X El Capitan DP's builds!

Posted by theconnactic on 15 September 2015 - 08:17 AM

Upgraded to the GM. One of the easier upgrades since I started using hackintoshes. Perhaps also because I have been watching closely the Clover thread for a couple of months. Seriously? Didn't notice any major change from Yosemite until now. All the best! P.S.: I'm wrong. No more permissions to repair. Disk Utility look somewhat like Window 7's disk manager - didn't like the change, but perhaps I'll get used to. The system overall does seem snapper. For now, that's all.

#2153762 Kernel panic with Bronya, Tora Chi 10.10 kernels

Posted by theconnactic on 17 July 2015 - 06:36 AM

 the worst is that I need the system to work for work and my iMac is dismantled and is too slow to work   I had the 10.10.3 version installed and running normal just needed add some kexts as AMDx4000.kext (rollback) and FakeSMC, NullCPU, SuperVIAATA.   You just answered the solution for your afflictions: revert to 10.10.3 for now. It makes no sense having the latest and less-tested point version in an AMD hackintosh when you need it for making a living. In fact, using an AMD hackintosh professionally is living on the edge, always.

Going to try the newest CC on my AMD rig (10.9.5, latest Bronzovka's) this week. Will report the results here. Wish me luck!

#2143696 OS X El Capitan Test Thread

Posted by theconnactic on 10 June 2015 - 09:27 PM

In my Z97 hack (see my sig) it installs just fine, with my Clover EFI folder plus the argument rootless=0. It also runs "fine": meaning that I have no issue specific to my hardware, but the system is still intrinsically very glitchy (e.g.: sound need a kext rollback) and underdeveloped (look at the awful, hideous Disk Utility), more than any past DP version I tested up to now. All in al, it's not yet worthy to have it installed, so I erased the partition I used for it, and I'll wait for the public seed to have a real sneak peak of El Capitan. All the best!

#2139752 ASUS Z97-Gryphon, no QE/CI with H4600, a nVidia card, or both combined. Need...

Posted by theconnactic on 29 May 2015 - 03:12 PM

With the HD4600, use DVI or HDMI, DSub is a no-go. What brand is your Nvidia Geforce 210 ? I use DVI for the HD4600, and D-Sub for either the G210 (Point Of View) or the 9800GT (EVGA). I should say none of the nVidias are new: I use them successfully, either with or without the IntelHD, since Mountain Lion (I had a flawlessly working H77-DS3H + I5-3570K but it broke, so I upgraded :P). a mix of Madona with Justin Bieber not a good idea  :D  :hysterical: Wow! Very helpful, man! Thank you very much! I would recommend against using any RD files. I also couldn't drop oem ssdt in clover without getting waiting for root. Thankfully i had Pene to help me figure out my config when I used clover. Before clover booted for me I was able to boot with chameleon and grabbed the dsdt from there. I would try without any patches or drops to dsdt/ssdt and removing any oem DSDT.aml you have now in ACPI folder. Set injectIntel to true and let clover do auto patching until you can get to deskt...

#2138757 HELP TOPIC - for help in OS X Yosemite (10.10) and below

Posted by theconnactic on 26 May 2015 - 06:36 AM

Just use the kernel flag: I think the lack of it was causing the graphics issue (due to binary encryption). Good luck!
