    OpenCore Build App

    Enjoyed! Worked like a charm, thank you

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    Just FYI if anyone else is having a similar problem with sleep: it seems that this was caused by combination of OpenCore 0.0.2 + VirtualSMC 1.0.4. With Clover r4934 + VirtualSMC 1.0.4 sleep is working normally again.

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    I encountered a problem with the latest release of VirtualSMC 1.0.4: the machine lost sleep. When trying to put the machine to sleep, In the system log I can see an entry repeat itself a couple of times: localhost kernel[0]: (AppleACPIPlatform) System sleep prevented by THSS What can I do to fix this without going back to the previous release? With the previous releases of VSMC I had no problems whatsoever.

  5. Well, yes - basically everything is working. I just realised I had my old hardware in the signature - should be fixed now! For reference: Asus PRIME X299-DELUXE | i7-7820X | Gigabyte GTX1050 Ti | Clover | MacOS 10.13
  6. Just installed this on my "iMacPro1,1" SMBIOS hack. Experiencing massive lagginess. I'll have to revert to previous iMac Pro special build drivers.

    Nvidia EVGA GTX660 and High Sierra

    I read at another forum that someone got rid of glitches by enabling iGPU also. So I enabled but the glitches stayed. Yesterday, I finally grew tired of glitches with my GTX660 and replaced it with a GTX1050ti. Removed the old card, installed the new one and booted. Everything works (with NV Web drivers of course, already had them installed for GTX660).

    [pre-release] macOS High Sierra

    iMac 13,2 System definition MB: GA-Z77N-WIFI GPU: EVGA GTX660 SC CPU: i7 3770K IGPU is disabled pretty much ever since I built this machine about 5 years ago. I can't believe it was such a long time ago... Anyway, I'll wait until Nvidia releases the drivers before making any changes to the configuration because besides some artifacts here and there, the system runs absolutely great. Setting up desktop wallpaper to change for example every minute seems to help keep the artifacts away, switching between Spaces and closing a fullscreen app seems to clear out the artifacts. After wake from sleep and restart there are no artifacts for about 10-45 minutes. Opening the Applications folder (shown in grid view) from dock seems to instantly trigger artifacting.

    [pre-release] macOS High Sierra

    I updated my machine to the 10.13 GM a couple of days ago and see the same behavior on my machine. I assume this to be corrected by NV Web drivers hopefully sooner than later.

    Hi, ever since upgrading from Yosemite to El Capitan, my GTX660 stays on max clocks after wake. For now, a workaround is that I keep the system running all day long never set to sleep. Not ideal though - especially after it was working perfectly for many years. I have a GA-Z77N-WIFI, BIOS F3 with Ozmosis 1669M. PJALM DSDT fixes for this mobo and generic discrete GFX, SSDT created with ssdtPRGen. iMac13,2 system definition. I've not found a solution to this problem, Nvidia web drivers make no difference.

    Copy yout DSDT to the folder EFI/Oz/Acpi/Load in EFI system partition.
  12. J1mmyS


    F3 and F4 versions of BIOS do not have writable NVRAM, but F2 does, so look for a modded F2 file or bake your own. Check the first post for requirements regarding NVRAM. I read through this thread and modded my own BIOS with Oz and learned a lot in the process - I warmly suggest you do the same and start over. You will really gain a lot even if it is a lot of reading! Oz *is* the bootloader and EFI partition is used on genuine Macs too, so it is not something that tarnishes the "vanilla" and for sure should not be removed.

    Pattern of MLB (Main Logic Board)

    Ah, yes, I see - i5 vs i7 - thanks for pointing that out That is exactly what I'm doing, using the values from my genuine Macbook Air on my hack with different SMBIOS. And as you said, it doesn't matter yet. I would just like to keep my beautiful hack out of harm's way as much as possible if and when the fruit company decides to double down on security.

    Pattern of MLB (Main Logic Board)

    Thank you for your help, but these values do not seem to exist on the Macbook. Maybe that is because it's still running Snow Leopard and I never used FaceTime or iMessage on it. Anyway I just wanted to know if I could use the Macbook's ethernet MAC address as my new ROM value, and as the checksum part of the MLB value which needs to be created in this case.

    Pattern of MLB (Main Logic Board)

    Hi guys, I've been using a ROM/MLB combination that I borrowed from my Macbook Air. So far, it's been working just fine. However, in the future I would want for this hack to have its own IDs, and so: 1. I have an old CD Macbook (backup of a backup of a backup computer) in a closet that I never use anymore - can I use its ethernet (or even firewire) MAC address as my hack's ROM? 2. Next, I'm trying to figure out the MLB. My hack's SMBIOS is iMac13,2, and my serial begins with C02. On Macpartsonline, the closest logic board to my SMBIOS that I found says: Logic Board: 661-7160 (Model A1419, Quad-Core i7, 3.4GHz, 2GB DDR) SKU: 661-7160 EEE Code: F0V5,F64W But then I saw Pike had posted this: C0 2 2 50 602 ZC F651 AX = iMac13,2 Where the EEE code and board type are different than the ones I found on Macpartsonline. I don't understand why the Macpartsonline lists two EEE numbers for the board. Can I use any combination of EEE code and board type values as long as they match the SMBIOS?
