  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.

    OpenCanopy Icons

    OpenCanopy is a graphical user interface for OpenCore. To setup OpenCanopy 1 - See OpenCore documentation 2 - See Dortania GUI setup Many users like to keep their hacks looking as close to a mac as possible by using OpenCanopy with Apple's own icons, however for users that may want 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 theme feel. To help, I am aiming to create families of 'similar' icons, amongst others, which

  4. 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

  6. 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

    BootloaderChooser

    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

  9. @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.

  11. 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

  13. Anyone wanting to boot an existing Big Sur install with Clover can do it now. Necessary files have been published and it got a little easier: https://www.hackintosh-forum.de/forum/thread/49311-macos-11-bigsur-dev-beta-clover-patch/?postID=619527#post619527 Make sure you have Big Sur already installed on your drive (Installer not working yet!) Use the Clover build attached to the post linked above Paste the kernel patches inside your config.plist Use latest OcQuirks, otherwise it won't boot If you don't know how to use that stuff, it isn't for you.

  14. 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 previous AptioMemoryFixes. Since r5126 these are now obsolete and no longer supported, so an upgrade to v5126 or later is mandatory in order to be able to install and boot macOS Big Sur with Clover. This guide is for everyone trying to update to the latest Clover version, so they can install and run Big Sur on their Machines. When updating to the latest iteration of Clover, there are several obstacles one can come acros

  20. Hello Everybody, I just wanted to update you lot about a few things. I have now moved away from Intel and im running a AMD build so I will no longer be able to delve deep into the inner workings of the Z390 platform so for this reason I am going to make my next EFI update my last. I will keep the threads open and continue supporting whenever I can but with the way things are now and the M1 Apple products out there it’s all abit pointless in my eyes. I want better gpu performance then my 5700xt has to offer and I’m sorry but for all the people thinking Big Navi will work one day with Big

  27. Some boards do not have a visible option for CFG Lock. For those cases the Bootloaders offer options to not write to the MSR. An other way is to disable CFG Lock in the BIOS despite the fact that there is no option available in the user interface. One way to do so is to use UEFITool, ifrextract and a patched Grub. Which is not only cumbersome, also it will work only, if the storage used for CFG Lock is in a certain varstore. Generally speaking CFGLock.efi does what those tools do, but the only user interaction needed is to confirm that you want to toggle the CFG Lock value (on t

  30. I really don't see this big need for everyone to disable security features like SIP. These security features do not effect the installation nor use of macOS BigSur or any other version of macOS in anyway. I can understand if you need to overwrite a system file or something but after the fact, it should be re-enabled.

  39. Everyone : wait a little. Yes, my "opencore_integration" doesn't work (it sort of). Problems have been identified and I'm sorting out "side" problems after haveing made sure that BigSur can boot : previous macOs boot, windows boot. Maybe that setting (ProvideConsoleGop) will disappear, or move. We have to decide few things. All I did was an experiment. That means I didn't work on proper default values, or a proper name for Quirks in config.plist. Let us talk and I'll get back to you.

  40. Hi guys. Just a heads up about the latest OC 0.6.1 and its new default security settings: the "Default" setting in config.plist/Misc/Security/SecureBootModel prevented booting of Big Sur Recovery (and Ubuntu 20.04) on my system ---> immediate reboots. Had to set this to "Disabled" before everything started working again... No such issues with 0.6.0.
