    Disk Utility v13 for macOS Sierra.zip

    I Modified my loader script in Disk Utility.app/Contents/MacOS/loader.sh to the following below. Much safer, and doesn't blow up if Disk Utility crashes.... I also renamed my app to Disk Utility-13, and put it in my /Applications/Utilities folder, so it is easy to tell them apart. Thank you dimosgmx for getting it to work! I recommend the script edits below for an updated version #!/bin/bash cd -- "$(dirname "$0")" pwd # This moves the original framework, if this is the first time running, then links to it. If it does, it links to Sierra's version if [ ! -f /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd-sierra ]; then mv /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd-sierra ln -s /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd-sierra /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd else rm /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd # After Diskutility closes for any reason, we unlink the framework ln -s /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd-sierra /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd # Link back to original fi cp diskmanagementd /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd-elcap # Copy El Capitan's to the same place rm /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd # Removes the link ln -s /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd-elcap /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd # Links to El Capitan's version ./DiskUtility # Runs Diskutility rm /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd # After Diskutility closes for any reason, we unlink the framework ln -s /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd-sierra /usr/libexec/diskmanagementd # Link back to original
  2. Upgrade failed.. Haven't had a chance to try again, as I am on a project.
  3. Glad to see someone else using the EVGA Classified SR2! I have been using it since Mavericks. Currently on El Capitan. Just imaged my drive and am going to upgrade to Sierra now.
  4. It has been running great with my USB3 hub, Seagate backup plus USB 3 drives, and other harddrives... But when I plug in a LaCie Rugged Mini 500gig drive to my USB 3, the system freezes solid. It runs fine through firewire. My motherboard is the EVGA Classified II, and it has a NEC 3.0 chipset built in.
  5. Woohoo!!! I finally have working UDB 3 on my EVGA Classified SR-2!! All the other USB 3 drivers I would try wouldn't show any of the devices, or they would run at USB 1 speeds.. I am getting full speed, and my USB 3 Hub is working fine too... (Shows up as both a USB 2 hub and a USB 3, Does the same on my Retina Macbook) Surprised #the beast# doesn't have this driver in it yet. Glad Pandora is getting it... I will have to checkout Pandora. About sleep, With my motherboard, I have to put it to sleep at the Login screen, then wake it up for my Blackmagic Decklink, and Firewire cards to work. Haven't tried usb3 before that stage... The LaCee Driver before would make my bootup take longer, and now my box even boots faster with this driver... I have used Seagate Backup +, a Buffalo Raid, and Lacee rugged drive all at the same time connected to my USB 3 hub.

    VoodooHDA with fix for random KP

    I thought the same, but after tweeking with the VoodooHDA pref pane in settings, I got sound to work.
  7. Here is my AppleHDA.kext for lion 10.7.4 It is also working with my HDMI audio to my Samsung TV.
  8. Here is a native audio solution for 10.6.8 and possibly Lion (Havent installed lion, but it uses the same AppleHDA structure) Here is what needs to go into the DSDT. All you need to do is add this HDEF section to your DSDT.aml. My Motherboard didn't have any in it's DSDT. I put it after the "Device (GBE)". but it probably isn't that important where it is among the devices. If you are confused, you can download my EFI.zip that has my dsdt.aml in it. It is the same as my previous version, so if it is already there, no need to change it. Device (HDEF) { Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x08) { "codec-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x88, 0x08, 0xEC, 0x10 }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x78, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00 }, "device-type", Buffer (0x0F) { "Realtek ALC888" }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (One) { 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } Then you will need to put the HDALC888.kext in your /Extra/Extensions folder where your bootloader is. I personally use the EFI partition of my main harddrive. Then run "Patch AppleHDA.command" by double clicking it. It will ask for your password, as it needs Administrator rights. Reboot, and you should be up and running. I have better pathmaps this time.. Almost fully working... Front headphone jack doesn't work. But it does have 3 line outs. So you can use it for 5.1 surround _MIO_Audio_888_10.6.8.zip

    i just built a 12-core hackintosh

    Just so anyone wanting to use this motherboard, it works VERY well... I am running it with 12 cores, I have a Red Rocket, a Blackmagic Decklink HD card in it, and it is amazing in After effects and everything I throw at it.... I have everything working, except sleep, which I don't use anyway, because I like using Logmein. I even have the ASUS MIO-AUDIO 888 card working. I got it 99% vanilla. Just have to run 1 script that binary patches the AppleHDA file. Once it is updated by a Software update, just run it again...... Here is my EFI partition that has everything you need. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=85908 If you just need audio, see ,y sound post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=245085
  10. For 10.6.8 or Lion (Untested) go to post 3 Ok, I have the Asus Z8PE-D12, which doesn't have a onboard soundcard, but it has the option for sound, which I have. So this MIO sound card is also for other Asus boards, and it has the ALC888 Codec in it.. So this should help others too.... I have this running using the AppleHDA.kext that is included with 10.6.6. I spent days figuring this out, as the VoodooHDA has a lot of noise, and in Final Cut, sometimes has audio delayed by a second or 2. This is still a work in Progress, as I don't know how to correctly make the PathMaps in the AppleHDAPlatformDriver.kext/Contents/Info.plist, but I used the codec dump prom Linux, and used Taurus's AppleHDAPatcherv1.20.app to make a leopard AppleHDA that I took the PathMaps from that. Once I had a working AppleHDA, I was able to take the sections and put them into the Legacy888HDA.kext. I like to keep my machine as Vanilla as possible. my AppleHDA is now the only non Vanilla Kext I have. I put the Vanilla one back, and I have a script that patches it for me. Now after another OS update (10.6.7 is coming), I will just have to run the script to get sound again. If someone who knows how to correctly make PathMaps wants to modify them, I would be more than happy to help. My current ones do make a Line out(green), Digital out, and Headphones(Front). The headphones have to be manually selected to work... It also does a Line in. The Back I assume... Haven't tested it. All you need to do is add this HDEF section to your DSDT.aml. My Motherboard didn't have any in it's DSDT. I put it after the "Device (GBE)". but it probably isn't that important where it is among the devices. If you are confused, you can download my EFI.zip that has my dsdt.aml in it. Device (HDEF) { Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x08) { "codec-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x88, 0x08, 0xEC, 0x10 }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x78, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00 }, "device-type", Buffer (0x0F) { "Realtek ALC888" }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (One) { 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } Then you will need to put the Legacy888HDA.kext in your /Extra/Extensions folder. Then run "Patch AppleHDA.command" by double clicking it. It will ask for your password, as it needs Administrator rights. Reboot, and you should be up and running. Here it is... MIO_Audio_888.zip Now, anyone who wants to help me with better PathMaps, I have my whole EFI partition saved in the EFI.zip. I included my Codec dump. EFI.zip Also, Anyone with an Asus Z8PE D12, to get snow leopard up and running, on a seperate computer, install Snow Leopard, and then install the updates. (Was required, as the Kernel from 10.6.3 didn't like my dual 6 core Xeons) I used my macbook and a SATA to USB adapter to do it. Then I installed Chameleon on it. I use the EFI method. I can still hook up the drive to my mackbook, and boot it up! After Chameleon is installed, Just use all the files from my EFI.zip. I have the ATI 5770 video card, and I haven't been able to get the HDMI audio to work, but that isn't a big deal to me. The boot file I use works great with my card. Also, The TotallyLegacy.kext has been updated to include Ethernet support too. So no modifying the network kext on your Snow Leopard. I have this motherboard almost 100% working, as Seep is the only thing that doesn't work... Something I never used on my dual G5 anyways.... EDIT: OOps some how my attachements didn't get posted... I Fixed it.
  11. Hey, is there any way you could post your DSDT for your board? I am getting this motherboard in a couple of days, and it would be nice to have a DSDT to start with.
  12. Ok, NO MORE KEXT EDITING!!!!!! I edited the AHCIPortInjector.kext do that that it is working on my 2 drives connected to my Marvell controller. Badaxe2_AHCIPortInjector.zip It also injects the ICH7-R when it is even set to IDE mode in your BIOS. -- Wont have to switch back and forth if you dual boot windows.... I have only tested this using it in /Extra/10.6 on my EFI partition. I don't know if it would work in the /System/Library/Extensions folder. With this, you can keep your system drive Vanilla. I tried to make this as simple as possible, and even included my script I use to set the permissions and make the Extensions.mkext file. Put the kext file into your /Extra/10.6/Extensions folder (You may not have a 10.6 folder if you don't have a dual boot. I do, so this works on that. ) Put the Extensions.command in your /Extra/10.6 folder. then in finder, double click it to run it. It should leave a Extensions.mkext in that folder, where it belongs
  13. If it is on another partition, then in finder right click the partition, and select "Get info". Then make sure that "ignore ownership on this volume" is NOT checked, otherwise you will always get the "not authentic" error.
  14. You are getting the "is not authentic" because your permissions are wrong. the folder needs "chmod -R 755 /Extra/Extensions" and "chown -R 0:0 /Extra/Extensions" run on it. Then run command "kextcache -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext /Extra/Extensions" That is probably why you are having problems with my kext's. note 0:0 is the same as root:wheel, but it is a lot less typing
