    bluenote56 reacted to Allan in How to Prepare a Hack for the OS X Yosemite   
    Most of us are counting the time to have on hands the final release of OS X Yosemite, which will bring significant changes in their appearance and stability.
     
     
     


    Now, the most important thing before you install and use the new OS X, is you check if your current Hack will be compatible with OS X Yosemite without major issues, and prevent some possible Extress. 
    Basics.
     
    Well, if you currently use OS X Mavericks, it's likely that you can use the Yosemite. But not everything is perfect. Something you should be aware of, is the fact that some components like Video, WiFi, USB kexts, or for port activation of your graphic card like HDMI, VGA or DVI.
     
    In the most of cases, we only use HDMI, which requires a patch at AppleIntelFramebufferCapri kext, you can use without issues Mavericks' kexts in Yosemite, but it may happen, just as happened to me, some video crashes and artifacts at your display.
     
    What you can do now is to keep a backup of the used methods and their respective patches at a Pendrive, or store it at your cloud account using DropBox, iCloud etc ...
     
    Average.
     
    Always keep a backup of your working kexts and/or plugins.
     
    Backup your DSDT, SSDT and any other custom ACPI table you have. If you use Chameleon, also make sure you have a backup of the Extra folder with its contents, like org.chameleon.Boot.plist and FileNVRAM.
     
    Now, for those who uses Clover in UEFI mode, will be pretty easy. As Clover uses the EFI partition to store its files and this partition is independent from the partition where OS X is installed, if you do not re-partition your drive, you have nothing to worry about.
     
    So, be careful while installing OS X 10.10. Never change the partition layout of your HDD, for example, change it from GPT to MBR, by doing this your EFI partition will be deleted.
     
    Advanced.
     
    If you are unsure about something, or did not like Yosemite and wants to return to the Mavericks, make a full backup of OS X. Do not think that Hack things are like real Macs, and that at any issue you can use Time Machine to revert things back.
     
    Use tools that will fit your needs and save you time.
    An excellent tool is the CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner - 30 days of use) or SuperDuper which is free.
     
     

    The advantage of CCC is that you can save the bootloader, then, just restore it to an external HDD/Pendrive and install it normally.
     
    SuperDuper only backup OS X and not the bootloader. But this is not a problem, because onceOS X was restored, download and install the Bootloader does not take 3 minutes.
     
    Now one tip that will allow you a quality support is: Never use methods of other forums, even more those we don’t give support, as Tonymac, Niresh and others.
     
    Understand that we don’t hate them, but think logically: If you like to use their tools, the best thing shouldn't ask for support at their forums? And vice-versa with respect to us.
     
    Another tip that can help you a lot, always be patient. Look, we all use a new OS X, where the problems will probably be solved differently. So, don’t expect the developers or Staff members use a magic wand to fix the problems, they also need to study new ways, and when they are available, we put in the best way for you.
     
    Well this are the tips that I bring to you. And I await with much anxiety the next Keynote.

    I don't understand what that means. Yosemite runs beautifully for me. Wouldn't go back to Mavs at all.

    bluenote56 reacted to rodrigocunha in Chameleon - Success loading kextcache   
    Finally I got kernelcache loading in Chameleon!
     
    1 - Edit /usr/standalone/bootcaches.plist and set "Preferred Compression" to lzss
    <key>Preferred Compressions</key> <string>lzss</string> 2 - Rebuild kext caches:
    kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel kextcache -system-caches 3 - Edit chamaleon preferences /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist and add this setting:
    <key>Kernel Cache</key> <string>/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache</string> 4 - remove "-f", "UseKernelCache=no" from kernel flags, keep it like this  (add -v optionaly) and set UseKernelCache to Yes:
    <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>kext-dev-mode=1</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> That´s it! Reboot and it will work.
     
    The step 3 is the missing piece. Without it, chameleon doesn´t know where is the kextcache.
     
    ps: Using lastest chameleon (cbv2...)

    This is not a solution at all... Removing drivers does not make the GPU magically work. 
     
     
     
    This is a Beta OS so you need to expect there to be issues and if you plan to use a Beta OS you need to figure out the solution then post it. Else use 10.9.3 or older builds of Mac OS X.

    Mi permetto di aggiungere che chi come me "smanetta" sul suo hackintosh a mio modesto avviso lo fa soprattutto per passione e per "sfida" alla propria intelligenza e pazienza. Ci piace avere una macchina performante che richiede però attenzione (direi continua) e pazienza. La stessa passione di quando smontavo e rimontavo la moto o impazzivo per il mio impianto hi-fi car alla ricerca del suono assoluto (non sono un teen ager). Se oggi ho un computer che mi da soddisfazione e che va piuttosto bene anche per l'audio, lo devo appunto agli sviluppatori di cui sopra e sento sempre la spinta (quando posso) di ritrasferire la mia piccola esperienza a chi eventualmente ne può usufruire. Se nessuno lo avesse fatto con me starei ancora con il power pc.
    Ho avuto la mia (ingenua) esperienza con la cricca dei mangiamorte sulla quale stendo un velo pietoso e glisso. Nulla a che vedere con lo spirito di condivisione che c'è qui e che dovrebbe essere alla base del tutto. Colgo l'occasione per ringraziare lo staff visto che ogni tanto fa pure piacere sentirselo dire a chi passa le ore per dare risultati agli altri.
    E comunque tutto questo è una gran figata alla faccia di Voldemort.
    Grazie ragazzi

    Mi fa piacere che hai capito il punto della situazione.
    Quanto detto fino ad ora non vuole essere una "crociata", ma una presa di posizione obbligata.
     
    Immagina che tu ora crei la tua bella guida funzionante partendo da 0 magari riuscendo addirittura ad usare il numero minore di "tools" possibili..
    di crei il tuo DSDT ad hoc successivamente i Kext che necessita la tua configurazione... insomma di spa...k...k..i il c..o di lavoro (con tanto di soddisfazione personale garantita)
    e in modo molto amabile condividi il tutto...
     
    All'improvviso ti accorgi che il tuo lavoro viene "rubato" "rinominato" e il tutto senza nemmeno la minima traccia dei tuoi riconoscimenti...
     
    Penso che tu stesso nel fondo della tua bontà... ti girino...
    Quanto detto avviene praticamente ogni giorno...

    I changed YouTube to HTML5, so instead of Flash to serve you the videos, you get them trough HTML5.
     
    I know this is a workaround and doesn't properly solve this issue but it's as good as it gets right now for watching YouTube videos.

    bluenote56 reacted to Dr. Hurt in Mavericks - to be locked down (in the future)?   
    If Apple implements signature versification via the kernel, I think it'll be very difficult to bypass especially if the kernel itself becomes secured too somehow. 
     
    Apple has generally been tolerant of the hackintosh community and I don't think they're trying to kill it, but rather limit it a bit by making it more difficult.
     
    If Apple does indeed lockup everything in 10.9, it'll mean we'll have a much narrower range of supported hardware. We can still fake dev ids via DSDT to use some stock kexts but we will no longer be able to patch binaries. We'll have to depend more on 3rd party kexts which, unfortunately, won't cover our needs.
     
    We can only wait and see. And I'm sure some brilliant hackers around here will find workarounds, eventually.
