  1. 👉 Rules Our goal is ensure that the forum remains a helpful & friendly place to learn about how to run Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware, and of course other general banter. We want you to be able to discuss anything and everything here, and to do so we ask that you check out these guidelines for forum use. Do not upload anywhere else files when developers specifically ask not to. We take this matter very seriously, as developers are the very heart of our community. No Flaming.

  2. HACKINTOOL The Swiss army knife of vanilla Hackintoshing WARNING! Hackintool is not an automated patching tool that does all the work for you. Knowledge is required on how to patch before using it. Please read the Intel Framebuffer patching using WhateverGreen guide before you download this tool! I also recommend you read Daliansky's Hackintool tutorial (a proper English translation would be welcome).

  3. I'm back to the scene since today (16/10/2018). I've bought myself a new MacBookAir7,2. Will continue to develop for the hackintosh community. I've started by uploading under the Developers Corner a new version of AutoAPBDecrypt 2.0. CommonCrypto is altered to not allow decryption of Apple Protected Binaries. Solved this using an Apple updated version of OpenSSL 1.0.1j (included in the installer package). I can report that I'm very pleased to be back.

  4. Hi, I've created a new GUI agent application to assist Clover bootloader. Its name is "Clover.app". Made to run in 10.9 and newer. What it does (or should do)? Give prominent info about the current revision in use, the Boot Device (disk where Clover is) and the the config.plist used. Install Clover in UEFI and legacy mode with a new way to store preferences and with out a pain searching for the correct ESP. Prevent target like Catalina-Dati from another OS (and ruin it) or read-only volumes, as this is not allowed. Provide esse

  5. Rev 4833 There is an audio interface in Clover. Regards to Goldfish64 https://github.com/Goldfish64/AudioPkg I made a sound playback in Clover using his Audio driver. Place driver AudioDxe.efi into /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ AudioDxe.efi.zip Place application BootChimeCfg.efi into /EFI/CLOVER/tools/ BootChimeCfg.efi.zip Place a sound file into your theme folder, for example, /EFI/CLOVER/theme/cesium/. There can be two files: "sound.wav" and "sound_night.wav". For example sound.wav.zip After reboot you will hear sound before Clover GUI. It is startup sound like c

  7. OpenCanopy is a graphical user interface for OpenCore which is currently under development. To setup OpenCanopy 1 - See OpenCore documentation 2 - See Dortania GUI setup You should setup OpenCanopy using the source files from OCBinaryData to check all is working. These files will provide you a UI as close as possible to a real Mac by using Apple's own icons. Users wishing to deviate from Apple's boot icons for a more custom look, they're left with having to find their own icons from various places which can sometimes result in a not so consistent t

  10. Hello everyone! Together with the help of @DSM2 I built a Kext aiming at removing limitations put in place by Apple for PC graphics cards that reduce performance in some benchmarks like Geekbench and some scenarios where memory bandwidth is crucial. Likely most of you already know the issue that some GPUs don't perform as expected in Geekbench. For example, a Radeon VII only scores around 50k to 60k points while on Windows it can easily reach the 82k range - with overclocking even more. This issue is not only affecting the Radeon VII but numerous other graphics cards as

  13. Hi everyone This post is more concerning all our current and futur Just Joined members. Back in the days we had IPB v3.x.x software version, we implemented a quiz to prevent spammers from posting their articles. But since the last forum upgrade (to IPB v4.x), the quiz plugin needed to be completely recoded from scratch for Invision Community 4.x but never seen the light. As a result, it allowed all our Just Joined members to post and create new topics almost over the whole forum... including spammers. So to overcome the problem related to the absence of a quiz to counter spammers, I ju

  14. I'm just going to run through some of the changes I made to RehabMan's BrcmPatchRAM project for it to function in macOS Catalina. I don't really have time to go any further with it but hopefully my research and testing can help get an official working version out. I'm using BrcmFirmwareData.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext and place them inside EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext was not required on previous macOS releases but is on Catalina because of the following missing IOCatalogue methods: kxld[com.no-one.BrcmPatchRAM

  17. Here is a discussion about my little tool : BootloaderChooser This is the solution if you : - are not sure on which file his EFI bios is booting - are annoyed because clover and oc efi has to be named CloverX64.efi and OpenCore.efi. Hence, you can't easily see the version - ares tired of renaming efi files to try different version (that's the consequences of the previous point). - find not great the need to have a bootable Clover/OC backup on a USB stick in case something goes wrong at update or config modification. - you also tired to often rename Clover f

  25. @fantomas, let me be crystal clear about it. AppleLife is not an unknown blog but one of the locations Acidanthera team and related people are located. It is a local Russian community, so if anything, the userbase is not intersecting in the first place. Yet, even if it was not, when team members post links to authorised instructions (e.g. my posts), you can treat it similar to github.com/acidanthera. If understanding all that you believe that links to developer resources are improper on insanelymac, we may have to cease all kind of interaction with insanelymac community.

  32. Latest Update: May 16th 2021: Added "Clover Configurator ACPI Section Explained" PDF and updated guide. Background: Since the Pre-Release of Clover r5123, OpenCore's Memory Fixes have been integrated completely into Clover in the form of OpenRuntime.efi, replacing the previously used AptioMemoryFixes. Since r5126 these are now obsolete and no longer supported, so an upgrade to r5126 or later is mandatory in order to be able to install and boot macOS Big Sur with Clover!

  36. Rev 5123->5125 Since rev5123 we make joined bootloader Clover+OpenCore. It started as Clover using Clover's GUI and ability to change settings and then started OpenCore to inject and patche kexts and start macOS. Starting Windows and other OSes is done by Clover's way. There are new section in config.plist named Quirks that collect setting for OpenCore but some setting is just delegated from Clover because it can change it on the fly. There is a correspondence of OpenCore and traditional Clover settings to easy migrate from OpenCore to new Clover. OpenCore

I don't have enough time to work on the project and it's lacking behind, so please don't use it for configuring OpenCore, it will produce broken configuration files.

  45. Rev 5000+ Now Clover version 2.5k. It assumes new folder structures drivers BIOS off UEFI instead of older folders drivers64 (now drivers/BIOS) and drivers64UEFI (now drivers/UEFI). As well I have to note that there is no automatic update from 2.4 to 2.5. CloverUpdater can't switch versions. You have to install new version manually and carefully check drivers directories if all needed files presents here. Thanks Chris1111 for the picture!
