    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.

    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.

    AutoAPBDecrypt 2.0 for Mojave

    Since Mac OS X 10.14 AutoAPBDecrypt doesn't decrypt anymore using CommonCrypto. To solve this I've made a custom version of OpenSSL 1.0.1j for Mojave and installed it to /usr/local. I've made a handy installer package for Mojave. I've fixed AutoAPBDecrypt and implemented also Dark Mode Support. It is compatible with OS X 10.14 and above. Attached is also the source code for the new OpenSSL library (requires GMP 6.1.2 or newer to build). NOTE: I'm back as of current, haven't had a computer in nearly 2 years but bought myself a new MacBookAir7,2 and am very pleased. Will continue to do other things as well. New GitHub repo's: https://github.com/andyvand/OpenSSL-1.0.1j-Apple-Mojave https://github.com/andyvand/AutoAPBDecrypt-2.0-for-Mojave OpenSSL101j-52.zip AutoAPBDecrypt-master.zip AutoAPBDecrypt.pkg.zip

    Since I replaced my my R9 270X with an RX570 a half year ago, I noticed that this strange kernel message was showing up after wakeup from sleep: kernel: AppleHDAHDMI_DPDriver::setPowerState(0xdf0b895bf4bcbbf9, 0 -> 1) timed out after 10134 ms kernel: AppleHDAHDMI_DPDriver::setPowerState(0xdf0b895bf4bcbbf9, 0 -> 1) timed out after 10134 ms Although it doesn't seem to do much harm to the system, DisplayPort audio used to work well anyway, I'm curious like all cats and decided to investigate the issue. As I'm using system definition iMac18,3 it was the most obvious step to take a look at the IOReg dump of an original Apple machine of that type and compared it with mine. Checking device HDEF, I noticed that the iMac18,3 doesn't have the "hda-gfx" property on that device anymore but instead of it a "No-hda-gfx" property so that I decided to edit my HDEF's method _DSM in order to adopt this change and it made the error message after wakeup disappear. Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer (One) { 0x03 }) } Return (Package (0x06) { "No-hda-gfx", Buffer (0x08) { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }) } Mieze

Once they are installed, you may go to Finder >> Services to toggle between ON & OFF. 4. That's it! You're done. Enjoy your hack with backlights. To uninstall 1. Delete the binary file from /Application 2. Navigate to ~/Library/Services and delete both the Keyboard BackLight ON/OFF files. Special credits to Apple Inc. for the HID LED Test Tool P/S: Works on most keyboards, but not all.

    OSx86.net is Down

    I think I already saw a such message before (server issue, forum update) and the forum has always been back. And I'm sure it will be the case again. ;)
