    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    For those who are wondering, Brcm4331 drivers have been removed, now there is only Brcm4360 and BrcmNIC.
  2. Is this kext even in development anymore?

    [GUIDE] [10.12] Sierra on Tab!

    Sorry guys for not updating the guide, I guess by now a lot of things changed (and it did change) and my tablet died. I just got a new HP Elite X2 G2 that I'm trying to hackintosh. If I ever find a free time I'll probably update the 2nd post as it will have some minor updates that will all be theoretical, so no real experimenting will be done. Sorry again.

    El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony Vaio S

    Pretty old issue, here is the fix: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-laptop-backlight-control-using-applebacklightinjector-kext.218222/ You'll have to remake the DSDT as before but without the PNLF patch. And follow the guide as is (the AppleBrightnessInjector kext, the Clover patch, the PNLF SSDT, and that's it).
  6. USB should work OOB, it's USB not PCI-e.
  7. Just going to jump here: sadly EasyUEFI now requires a paid license to add/edit/remove UEFI entires, basically it's useless in its "Free" form.

    Issue with Clover

    Why would you set Legacy if you have UEFI? Also, using BDU to make a clover USB installer isnt an EZ setup, you need to open your clover partition and copy needed drivers from drivers-off > drivers64UEFI back to drivers64UEFI in the clover folder, make sure the config.plist is correct (you can use http://cloudclovereditor.altervista.org/ for easy config making). Also make sure you have APFS.efi and HFSPlus.efi if you're going to install macOS (google those).

    [GUIDE] [10.12] Sierra on Tab!

    On my experience with HS on HD4000 systems similar to ATIV, I think it's ok to upgrade, you will still need to fix brightness after the upgrade. I recommend you TO NOT USE APFS. Skip the conversion, as it creates many issues (I dont have the tablet with me, but I do have many SSDs at home, some work fine with APFS, others dont, as they show slowness and corrupt data), so the safest way is to upgrade without converting (you can google for rehabman's guide on how to do it). Also, make a full TM backup before upgrading, because HS has introduced many graphical issues and instabilities. As of now, I'm using a Thinkpad P50, and even with that powerful iGPU (with Xeon CPU), HS managed to mess up and I went back to Sierra. Same goes with the VAIO. If you're ok with installing the HS then restoring it if anything happened, let us about the result.
  10. Tbh, it look noice! Tho, it's way too drastic, and Apple will not make it like that, unless they go with a touch friendly interface (which they said they will not do). And as fantomas1 said, it's gonna be macOS 10.14, as 11 would mean some really huge leap in the OS.

    El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony Vaio S

    Good, I've been using 10.13 for a while now, however, I gave my laptop a family member since I got a new laptop, so I havent been doing much on it. Anyways, here is things to be changed about the guide on OP: - for Audio : AppleALC + Lilu + Inject = 3 in clover (no need for HDAS DSDT renaming) + UseIntelHDMI to get HDMI audio + Either ResetHDA or CodecCommander (I recommend CodecCommander) - for brightness : Check Rehabman's guide on AppleBrightnessInjector (simple: 1 kexts to be put in /Library/Extensions + Clover patch + a generic SSDT in rehabman's repo) guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-laptop-backlight-control-using-applebacklightinjector-kext.218222/ - for USB 2.0: use USBInjectAll + SSDT-UIAC (check rehabman's guide, https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-creating-a-custom-ssdt-for-usbinjectall-kext.211311/).If I have some time, I may make you a correct SSDT (do it yourself first). - for Nvidia: New way to disable it from config.plist alone or via a generic SSDT https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-disabling-discrete-graphics-in-dual-gpu-laptops.163772/ - for DSDT: again, if I have some time, maybe I'll make some SSDTs for 100% hotpatch for this VAIO, may need tweaking for some models - for stability: myeah, it's usually HS's issue, HS has been a mess of instability and sadness. Try Sierra and see the results for yourself and tell us here. - for boot glitch: I've read that IntelGraphicsFixUp fixes it, but this kext is to be used with 4th gen iGPU, test it and give feedback (will not break anything, if it doesnt affect anything, it's fine, just remove it then, to be used with Lilu too) - for kexts: I recommend you to put all your injected kexts in kexts > Other, and remove the 10.XX folders as there may be some injection issues, or simply paste all your kexts in /Library/Extensions, then run in terminal: sudo chown -R root:wheel /L*/E*; sudo chmod -R 755 /L*/E*; sudo kextcache -i / then reboot. NOIIICE! I liek! I'll make one too for my Thinkpad!

    [GUIDE] [10.12] Sierra on Tab!

    sadly, my tablet has a broken screen now (made sure of that), and I dont seem to find an alternative. My fan is pulsing and I dont know why, also the SUB part of the motherboard (with wifi-3G-wacom connector) broke and I cant find a replacement. if Anyone knows how to repair that and what parts I need, please PM me. Thanks.

    How do I tell if a mother board is supported?

    Honestly, I'm not of a desktop build guy. I would recommend you to choose parts that will work the best for windows/lx as primary goal, then make it work with macos. Idk what's the difference between those mobos (since i don't buy them separately, i always use laptops) but if it's worth the money (and effort), go for it. Ask this in the AMD section, they know the best. Good luck.

    How do I tell if a mother board is supported?

    Lmao! You went direct south with that config. Anyway, it's not officially supported by apple but you can go the AMD section here, there is a dedicated thread on how to run macos on ryzen (which is actually quite good!). But since you have an AMD builr it will be harder than any other intel build. You will have to deal with custom kernel on each update (idk about that that much anyway but i heard there was some good news for ryzen cpus) and repatching every other kext too (it's a typical procedure on any hackintosh but more tedious on amd). But hey, you're not losing anything if you try. Good luck. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/321626-ryzen-macos-1012x-sierra-kernel-researchdevelopment-thread/?do=findComment&comment=2377961 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/324392-ryzen-clover-installation-guide-macos-sierra/?do=findComment&comment=2442188 Some links that may be useful

    Dell Vostro 5460 All-in-one PC

    Ok I wont be of much help but here are some stuff I know 1) There is a shutdown DSDT fix in Rehabman's fixes, try them also patch for IRQ HPET Mutex (under sys) and other stuff (do not apply two patches of the same category -like shutdown fix 1 and 2- 2) in addition to IRQ fix, CodecCommander and AppleALC may be of help. For touch, if it is USB connected, you can check touch-base drivers (you said it "worked", so I guess it's USB driven). Use clover > kexts folder for kext injection (you will need Lilu -from the same developer- for AppleALC to work). 3) Depends on your audio codec and how it's patched. Some codecs may have variations, so do some tests (that's why I recommend AppleALC as it's patching on-the-fly and you may change the layout-id from clover directly to test out). if none of them work, go to the audio section here and ask for help (or go to applealc thread to ask directly http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/311293-applealc-%E2%80%94-dynamic-applehda-patching/?do=findComment&comment=2221652, you can also go to applehda patcher's thread in the download section, then go to the discussion forum, do NOT post in the download section) 4) I guess it uses Optimus, so you better disable it from the UEFI firmware setup (aka BIOS setup) or using DSDT or SSDT (google that, it may be helpful if you're switching Windows to use that card) 5) ??? is that an issue? 6) That's purely cosmetics, you can manually add the information in clover configurator OR maybe your computer has 2 empty slots and the ram used is soldered to the motherboard (I did not look for your device or tried to, you do the research) Have Fun
