    APFS support is coming!

    Hi guys, I was really frustrated when Mojave got released, since the installer did not let us the possibility to control the APFS conversion... ...so I started to google around and found out that: 1. Apple finally released some kind of high-level APFS specification for read-only access (https://developer.apple.com/go/?id=apfs-file-format-spec) 2. An APFS driver for FUSE was already available on github (https://github.com/sgan81/apfs-fuse) Using both, I was able to write a pre-alpha-unstable-whatever APFS driver that is: - able to parse the first non-encrypted volume of an APFS container - supports ASCII path lookup Basically, a driver that is able to boot (at the moment) macOS High Sierra installed inside an AFPS container. I still need to clean my code, but I will publish a patch for Enoch pretty soon.... Stay tuned! M.

    Rev 4540 New driver developed by savvas https://github.com/acidanthera/ApfsSupportPkg/ You may exclude private apfs.efi from drivers64UEFI folder and place here the driver ApfsDriverLoader.efi. It performs loading the driver from APFS container by DiskIO protocol. The driver is open source but located not in Clover repository and at link above. It contains macbuild.tool for those who want to compile by himself.

    Clover Change Explanations

    Rev 4450 A data leak issue was identified in the hibernation code, allowing hibernation encryption key to be passed to the system through RTC and preserved till the next hibernation without a subsequent erase. More details could be found in this message. To workaround this issue a new option enabling RTC memory erase upon waking from hibernation was added: Boot → RtcHibernateAware = YES (BOOLEAN, off by default) This option relies on a poorly documented (or rather undocumented) RTC memory access, and unspecified RTC memory layout, which is implementation-specific. While it is extremely recommended to be turned on if you rely on hibernation, it may not work on your hardware (should be fine on Ivy Bridge and newer at least), and is thus optional and disabled by default. Note, that AppleRTC or FixRTC patches effectively break hibernation by reducing the available RTC memory and avoiding encryption key preservation. You should DISABLE them if you have no issues with BIOS preferences afterwards or use HibernationFixup. However, if RtcHibernateAware does not work for you, enabling AppleRTC patch and using HibernationFixup may be a safer workaround.

    Clover Change Explanations

    Rev 4847-4852 There is interface in Clover GUI to tune startup sound parameters Computer will play a sound before enter Clover GUI. To do this you have to 1. Use CloverX64.efi revision 4852 or up. 2. Place AudioDxe-64.efi into drivers64 and drivers64UEFI. Playing is possible in both legacy and UEFI modes. AudioDxe.efi is included into Clover project and will be differ from original by Goldfish64 but almost compatible. 3. Place sound.wav and may be sound_night.wav into your theme folder, for example /EFI/CLOVER/theme/Clovy/. The sound must be 16bit, and 44100 or 48000Hz. But I also made conversion on the fly so 8000Hz is also supported. 4. Tune sound output in Clover GUI as on screen above. The settings will be stored in NVRAM and used next restart. With legacy Clover or systems without nvram you have to use EmuVariableUefi.efi and rc.scripts to save nvram.plist. For very new systems like Z370 where nvram is not working in macOS there is a chance that the nvram is working on Clover level and so all will works. SIC! Legacy Clover saved Variables only with Apple guid so why it will not work. After some discussing I may rebuild the system to use AppleBootGuid. In this case the system will not be compatible with the original driver but will work with legacy systems. No more needs in BootChimeCfg and BootChimeDxe while the compatibility still remains.

    Clover SVG Theme Builder

    Vector themes for Clover are new and currently still under development. Setting out to re-create my BGM theme to vector I realised there was some learning needed in order to create a theme.svg file for Clover to use. As SVG files are text based, I quickly realised that they could be manipulated from the command line and looking at the Clovy theme I decided to break it down in to parts for creating other themes. As a result, I've been working on Clover SVG Theme Builder https://bitbucket.org/blackosx/cloversvgthemebuilder Current Version: 0.3.2 Latest Updates: - Allow just two checkboxes, instead of expecting night icons also. - Include Selection Indicator. - Can now process multiple themes from Themes directory. - Improved logging. Overview The idea is to allow a theme designer to work on individual images and not worry about the required overall file structure which Clover expects. The designer can populate a Theme directory with a settings file and individual .svg files and let the script generate a final theme.svg file for using with Clover. I've created a basic sample theme to help demonstrate the script. https://bitbucket.org/blackosx/cloversvgthemebuilder/downloads/Theme.zip The Theme directory contains Adobe Illustrator and SVG files for each image in the required folder structure for the script. Using this sample theme, the script will generate this theme from the files. The idea is these can be used to build new themes and I'm currently using it to build my BGM_SVG theme. I can imagine far more complicated themes will be generated in the future, but for now I hope this may serve to help kickstart basic vector theme development. Notes: • Clover's SVG theme development is still underway and things are likely to change so this script and it's supporting template file will need to change with Clover. • I've only tested this using SVG files saved from Adobe Illustrator using the following settings, for files from other apps may need added support. • For the script to correctly inject SVG code in to the template, each SVG image must contain a group of elements. • Font files are currently not included in the final theme file but this can be an option. • In time, maybe other templates can be added which have different layouts?? These are early days, so I'll update this post when necessary.

    [READ] - InsanelyMac Forum Rules

    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. This includes racism, threatening, personal attacks, victimization or hateful content. Retaliation will not be tolerated either; if a member has broken a rule, please use the report feature on the forum and the staff will deal with the situation appropriately. No posting of direct or indirect links to warez or pirated pieces of software, this includes cracks, serials and torrents. Do not publicly argue the decision of a moderator. If you disagree with a moderator take it up with them in private via PM. Only one (1) login is allowed per member. Duplicate accounts will be banned or deleted. Bumping of posts is not permitted. Other than being less annoying it also keeps the posts more informative. Meaningless and useless posts may be removed at Moderator's discretion. Only post your post once (1). This keeps the forum cleaner and makes it easier to find what you are looking for. No advertising or business offers of any kind. No posting of copyrighted material. This includes copying and pasting news articles from news websites. Attached materials must come with clear descriptions of what they are and what they do, linking to this information elsewhere is not sufficient. Materials derived from Open Source must include source code, as well as an explanation of what has been done to it. Discussion of P2P, torrent sites, or similar download sites of any kind will not be tolerated. We do not want to know your illegal downloading habits. Do not post spyware or any other malware. This includes linking to other sites which may contain it. Posting just to promote another site, product, or service (spamming) is not allowed. This site is not here for you to promote your own or anyone else's material. Discussion of commercial spin-offs of the OSx86 scene is allowed if it’s to understand their existence, but no discussion of how to use them, nor any support for these commercial spin-offs are allowed as they are not in the spirit of the OSx86 scene. Example of commercial spin-off: tonymacx86. Why InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86 VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ! (ABOUT TONYMACX86 AND iATKOS M / Y / EC / SR) Posting Guidelines If you have a question please do your best to use the search feature and search the forum before creating a new topic. Post in the correct forum and read the forum description. This will make sure that your post will not be removed. Pick an appropriate title and tags (if any) for your post. A good title makes it easier to find what you are looking for. Using informative tags allows for improved searching of related topics. All posts must be clearly written and easy to read. For example, if you have long blocks of text, use the Code option, etc. Limit "empty lines" as much as possible, use punctuation where you can and be concise. Posts may be edited for this reasons by InsanelyMac staff at their discretion. Please remember that you are in a public forum, a bit of courtesy is always welcome. It's always nice to start by saying "Hi" or "Hello" before asking a question or seeking help. Also a "thank you" would be appreciated, especially if the help you get is effective. Your topic does not deserve any more attention than others seeking help hence topic titles must reflect their content, and topic titles containing things like: 'please help' 'look here' 'cash reward' 'urgent' or other inaccurate descriptions will be removed. This includes all-caps titles. Give your hardware specs when necessary (asking for support) and any other time where it may be beneficial to have them listed. Signatures, Avatars and Nicks Keep your signature/avatar clean and tidy - should you receive a PM from the staff regarding your signature/avatar, please make the requested alterations or it may be removed/shortened appropriately. To keep pages loading fast for everyone, we request that your signatures and avatars contain no animations or high-definition graphics of any kind. Signatures should be no more than 6 lines of text using a regular font. If you can't fit all of your system specs in that you'd like, why not create a small graphic to contain the information? They should also contain no referral or affiliate program graphics. Avatars should be in "good taste," a qualification that is broad enough to let us determine what is and isn't. Goth-devil-child-wild-eyed-in-the-violent-blackness probably qualifies as being in bad taste. Nothing offensive, pornographic, or vulgar. Nicknames must be readable by the system (without question marks). This will ensure that your nickname can be searched, and that other users can contact you. They should also not contain staff member groups (administrator, moderator, developer, etc.) to prevent confusion. Nicknames should also show respect to the community, thus nothing containing offensive language. Email addresses must be real (nothing like bugmenot or similar). Accounts not in line with the last two rules will be edited or deleted without warning. Policing Do not publicly discuss the decision of a moderator. If there is any issue with a decision of a staff member PM them or contact an admin. Moderators have the ability to suspend or impose posting restrictions upon accounts based on the user's history. Records are kept to keep track of user's behavior and point out repeat offenders. Attempts to circumvent posting restrictions will lead to your account being banned, and any other accounts affiliated with your account being banned also. These rules cover a broad spectrum and are set up to preserve a free and open (and fun) place for discussion. They, in conjunction with common sense and good judgment, should steer you in the right direction. We're all human and we know that people make mistakes... but that's also not an excuse. More rules are subject to appear on this board as we see fit, so please check back from time to time for your own benefit. Thanks for joining our community and helping make it the best it can be. In case the rules localizations should differ, the English rules are the standard.
