  1. Agreed. Now TonyMac's users (those who saw it, anyway...) will think that we're just a bunch of idiots who have nothing better to do than hate on their site, using profanities, rather than arguments. Had he written something intelligent about how TonyMac is using other people's work, trying to make his users dependant on "his" tools (and so far he's been quite successful...), etc., some of his users may have visited InsanelyMac and perhaps they would even move here eventually.

    There is Apple's public key saved somewhere in your computer. In fact, I think there are more keys from Apple, at least one for verifying dev's keys and one for verifying Apple's own kexts. In a kext that is from a registered developer, there is a developer's public key along with Apple's signature of that key. When the kernel checks whether a signature is valid, it first checks whether the dev's public key is signed by Apple, if so, then it checks whether the signature of the kext itself is valid and if so, it loads the kext. As for Apple's own kexts, I think it just uses the Apple's key I was talking about earlier to verify the signature. So basically your computer trusts kexts that are signed either by Apple or by a dev whose key is in turn signed by Apple. Now, guess what happens if you generate a public/private key pair and replace the Apple's public key with the public key you've just generated? Yes, your computer now trusts kexts that are signed using YOUR, not Apple's, private key. Now you can just sign everything you want to run using your private key... IMO it's safer this way, because anybody, including virus makers, can buy a key signed by Apple, whereas nobody other than you can sign kexts using your private key. But if you want, I think it would be possible to have both the Apple's key and your own key in your computer, to that your computer runs kexts signed by Apple or registered devs too.

    "Impossible"? Certainly not... "A lot more difficult"? I doubt so. First, the kernel has to load Apple's public key from somewhere, right? So, we could just add another key, that everyone would generate themselves and sign their kexts with it... This is the cleanest solution, since you don't lose that extra bit of security added by kext signing nor do you have to modify the kernel. This is what I'll probably do with OS X 10.10. But, since many people don't want to do that, I'm pretty sure that there will be other solutions disabling the signature verification altogether. I think it's pretty likely that Apple will just add a kernel flag to disable it (if it's not already there, I haven't checked). In case they won't, it's not a problem either, as you can just change one je/jne to jmp/nop, so that the signature check always passes. Or you wait for the source code and do the same thing in a slightly cleaner way...
  4. Well, you can test whether you have NVRAM working by setting a dummy variable: sudo nvram dummyvariable=somevalueRebooting your machine and checking whether your variable is still set: nvram -p In case it is, NVRAM is working fine and thus is not the source of your problem. You can delete the variable by typing: sudo nvram -d dummyvariable
  5. I'm glad you got it working and thanks for letting me know that it was a problem with the NVRAM. I tried setting a dummy NVRAM variable and guess what, it didn't survive a reboot... After I installed EmuVariableUefi-64.efi, iMessage magically started working. It seems that Clover just had some problems trying to use the NVRAM in my motherboard.
  6. I do have my debit card in there and I even have some apps purchased on MAS... I don't think that's the problem since I can login just fine from both my MacBook Pro (on 10.9 GM too) and my iPhone. I just tried signing out and logging back in on my MBP and I've had no problems whatsoever. Also, if I enter a wrong password (on my Hackintosh...) it tells me that it's wrong and that I should try again, so I don't think changing my password would help either. As for my serial, I've generated it in Chameleon Wizard and I've also set my board serial number – I had added some digits and letters to my regular serial in order to make it 17 characters long... EDIT: I tried changing my password, but the issue still persists...
  7. Hi, I'm experiencing the same issue using latest Clover.

    Not a perl script, but this has worked perfectly for me...

    Fermi Freeze "Investigation"

    So, I've tried not running freezefix while not using Xcode and eventually, my system froze... I couldn't find "NVDA: channel exception" in the logs though. Maybe I restarted my computer too early. Anyway, I'm pretty sure it was a Fermi freeze, since I could only move my mouse and my music kept playing... I'm seriously thinking about buying a GTX 760 and selling my GTX 560 Ti, since the chip that the 760 uses - GK104 is the same chip you will get if you order an iMac with the optional GTX 780M. If you think about it, we're actually lucky that our fermi cards, that were never used in a Mac nor sold as "for Mac Edition", work in the first place...

    Fermi Freeze "Investigation"

    No. Yes. I got some NVDA(private) and some NVDA(OpenGL) channel exceptions... I use Clover's graphics injection, which should be equivalent to Chameleon's GE. I don't use any custom DSDT, I only have for sound fix done for automatically by Clover. (everything including sleep works for me ) When I finish my work in Xcode, I'll kill freezefix and see how it does. When I use Xcode, my system usually freezes after a while. Could you please try using Xcode for a while?

    Okay, I've got Mavericks DP8 up and running, so let's see how does it perform with my GPU.

    Fermi Freeze "Investigation"

    I've fixed it already. I also had problems with Notes.app and many other things not working properly. It turns out that the "combo" update that I had found on the internet haven't really worked properly (perhaps it was a delta labeled as a combo), so I've just installed delta updates one by one to get to DP 7 and it works great now! Anyway, I want to test it on my hackintosh, but I need to find out what to do with my data… For some reason the data partition seems to take up the whole HDD in Disk Utility.app and I can't change it's size, but it is only 650 GB and I want to make it 1 TB - 128 GB (size of my SSD, I want to clone it's contents on the HDD so I can boot of it if anything goes wrong with Mavericks). It seems that it wants GUID, not MBR, so I've tried an app called gdisk in Ubuntu, that is supposed to convert MBR to GUID, but is's complaining that my first partition overlaps some GUID sectors… So the only way seems to move the partition a few kilobytes to the right maybe, but the problem with this is that it takes forever to complete… Here's a screenshot of my HDD in the Disk Utility.app (I've switched the language to English for you ):

    Fermi Freeze "Investigation"

    Okay, so I've installed it on my MacBook and it seems to be fine, can't wait to test it with my Fermi card. I'm still trying to figure out how change MBR partition scheme to GUID (on my data HDD, I have a GUID SSD for system) on my hackintosh, so that I can clone my current ML partition to the HDD and boot it in case anything goes wrong… also it appears that you can't resize partitions if you have MBR… I've tried an utility called gdisk in Ubuntu booted from a flash drive, but it wanted me to move or resize my first partition… I tried to do so, but I gave up, since it appeared to take forever. Thankfully, my data are or at least appear to be intact. By the way, did you have any problems with sound? How ironic that you have a fully working hackintosh laptop and I don't get sound on my REAL MacBook Pro…

    Fermi Freeze "Investigation"

    Have you tested with DP7 already? If it works fine with our Fermi cards, I'm seriously thinking of installing it. Is it stable enough for daily usage? I'm using iOS 7 on my phone and it's fine, but I've got no idea about Mavericks - perhaps I could test it on my MacBook first… Also, will I be able to update my install to the official version that I'll have bought from App Store? I know that Apple says no, but…
