  1. Apple unveils "macOS Sierra"

    A bit of a specific question, but can someone who has Sierra installed tell if the behaviour around edited photos has changed? For example, photos edited on iPhone and imported through Image Capture appeared on Mac with separate .aae files containing the edits. The photo and the .aae could then not be recombined again, and .aae couldn't be imported into Photos for Mac with its photo to show the edits. Has this been fixed in macOS Sierra? Can .aae files be handled now by Photos and Image Capture? This can be quickly checked by taking a photo on iPhone, making any edit, connecting iPhone to Mac, opening Image Capture and importing it. If they come as .aae and .jpg (2 files), can they be dragged into Photos for Mac whilst showing the edits instead of the original? Many thanks to anyone who can be bothered to quickly check this for me :-)
  2. Clover General discussion

    Hi, can anyone give some explanation of what the booterconfig flag is for? It is always included, and always has the value 0x28. I know it is needed but how is it different from csractiveconfig and what other values are possible apart from 0x28? Thanks.
  3. Clover General discussion

    Hi guys, Does anyone know if there are any plans to add support to Clover for FileVault 2 encryption for boot drives? It is EFI already so that's a start, is it possible to add the password/integration functionality to the boot loader to decrypt and boot these drives? Thanks
  4. AirDrop/Continuity/Hands Off Fix How-to

    Thanks for the responses guys, I guess I shouldn't wait for a hack to enable Continuity on Atheros cards then if it's going to be Broadcom only. Has anyone here bought a card like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191202515767?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT and combined it with this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321543939767?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT to make a wifi/BT solution? If so, can anyone confirm that it works with Yosemite's Continuity features. Or if anyone has bought this ready-made version also: http://www.mallaid.com/index.php/taobao/view/id/36337693711 I have seen a few people saying that they are buying or have bought the parts, but no-one seems to have explicitly confirmed anywhere that they are working with iOS-mac airdrop, handoff, instant hotspot etc... If anyone is using that setup successfully please say so! Thanks
  5. AirDrop/Continuity/Hands Off Fix How-to

    Is it likely that cards like the WD4800 (which I think uses an Atheros chip) will be supported in the future, by some hack/kext/ID spoof? Or is it unlikely that it will ever work? I am trying to decide whether to buy a Broadcom card or whether to wait it out... Any comments/predictions welcome as I don't really understand what makes these things possible/impossible
  6. Clover General discussion

    Thanks for the responses guys. Unfortunately my Z77-DS3H Bios has no CSM or GOP options that I can see. I guess I am stuck then. It is odd that it doesn't work with such a common display as the ACD. I would have thought a lot of people here would have encountered the problem, but I can't find any fixes on the forums anywhere...
  7. Clover General discussion

    Hi guys, this may have been asked before, but is it possible to set the Clover boot screen to 2560x1440 for an Apple Cinema Display? I have tried manually using ScreenResolution in config.plist, and by using PatchVBios, but neither work. Any suggestions welcome as it looks pretty ugly at the current resolution. It's a GTX 660 connected to ACD by dp-minidp if that matters. Thanks!
  8. G5 Front Panel to ATX I/O Cables

    Hi, I bought one of these front panel cables a while ago. It works really well, so thanks I just wanted to ask, if I want to use it with Firewire in the future, do I just remove the jumper it came with? Or do I have to make other changes? Also, which pins does the audio jumper have to go between on the cable to get front audio? (I have a Z77 board and didn't know I needed the jumper when I ordered it, so I'm going to add it myself) Thanks very much BlackCH!
