    [GUIDE] [10.12] Sierra on Tab!

    Sierra on Tab! [DISCONTINUED] MY TAB'S MOTHERBOARD FRIED! First of all, I would like to thanks everyone on the Tablets > Samsung section for making OS X on XE700T1C possible, first from Yosemite up to El Capitan. This thread, however, is for Sierra installation, thanks to this thread (and the users there for the help), we gathered some information about our device capabilities and limitation on Sierra: What works: Everything but: What's not working/issues: PS/2 buttons (volume/rotation/Home buttons) - driver problem, needs kext edits For some: WiFi disconnections Wacom Driver (as for now, drivers for Sierra not released yet) They have been released. Intel Wifi/BT (no need to ask why, check the old threads for this device) Battery level may (most of the time) be wrong, please check HWMonitor for the real values, somehow macOS reads it wrong, and at some point it may even show "Replace Soon" (LOL). Battery may be stuck at "Charging" icon if woken up from sleep while being charged and then unplugged, to fix that, replug and unplug the charger. Before starting, neither me nor insanelymac.com is held responsible if anything goes wrong to your computer, or your cat died because you didn't feed it or a nuclear war. We are here to show you how to do stuff, you do it and take full responsibility of it. Part 1: Prepare your Computer: Before doing anything stupid, BACKUP YOUR FREAKING DATA! Don't come crying at me because you've lost your work files, notes or the secret recipe of Krusty Krab, I'll point my finger at you and laugh to my heart's content (yes, but I warned you, and as they say in arabic: 9ad a3thara man anthar قد أعذر من أنذر) YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! For that, you can use Samsung's tool (if you still have it), Microsoft Windows' tool (under windows 8/10 > File History, or under windows 10 using one of these) or using 3rd party tools like CCC or CloneZilla (open-source and totally free, recommended, backup partitions instead of disk, will help to restore single partitions instead of erasing the whole ssd), and if you're under OS X already, use Time Machine to backup, Linux users know what to do (CloneZilla, Aptik...). UPDATE your UEFI Firmware to the latest version, using Samsung Update, don't do anything stupid, let the updater do its thing and fulfill its requirements (full battery, no running program ..). May break your device if you do anything stupid here, don't be stupid then (I just solved world stupidity, praise me!). Prepare your tools: a OS X/macOS computer/VM (deal with it) one 8GB USB (or two, second may be small for clover only, recommended, external HDDs will work too) your ATIV (duh!) your brain, you can buy one if needed (mostly black markets, watch out: illegal) optionally, external USB mouse, as the internal one doesnt have scroll feature, blame ELAN for making the USB drivers not close to PS/2 ones Other than that, prepare yourself mentally, this will be tremendously long you'll pop your eyes out, so do this on a lit room and better in the morning when you're wide-awake, thank me later for that. Make some snakes while you're at it, you'll need them. Part 2: Prepare your install - Install! On your OS X/macOS computer Download (or build) Clover from here (or build from here) Download FakeSMC.kext (choose Binaries) toledaARPT.kext (only for AR9280/5 or compatible, optional) for BCM users, refer please to the older thread, must be the same for you, thought I've read that Sierra has some problems with some BCM cards, good luck then :3 Internet is NEEDED later, and AppleALC.kext and lastly HFSPlus.efi Download PlistEditor (google) Download macOS Sierra from the AppStore (by now the final release should be already published) Open Disk Utility and plug your USB stick. Select Erase > Name it whatever you want > Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) > Scheme : GUID Partition Table (GPT) > ERASE!!! You better have already saved what was there lol Select then Partition > hit + > Make a Clover partition of 500MB MS-DOS (FAT) partition and the rest Installer partition with Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Apply Note 1: for smartasses saying "Why GPT, why not MBR?", A: for some reason El Capitan/Sierra Disk Utility wouldn't let me partition it later on, I don't know what's going on, but only GPT partitioning was permitted, somebody please confirm/fix this. Thanks. Note 2: for smartasses saying "Why did you make a Clover partition instead of using the existing EFI partition from the GPT formatting", A: having a partition to automount is better than mounting a hidden one each time! Thou art done with Disk Utility, Thou shalt close it! Install Clover on the CLOVER (well fat partitions are renamed with capital letters) partition LEAVE only these folders/files from CLOVER folder: ACPI drivers64UEFI kexts > Other misc ROM themes tools CLOVERX64.EFI Copy the kexts from 2. in Other folder under kexts. Copy HFSPlus.efi under driver64uefi and remove VBoxHFS.efi Download this config.plist (credits @rehabman, also, right click on the link > Save Link As ... > and make sure it ends with .plist NOT .txt, if it doesn't, change the Format under it to All Files, and remove .txt) Open it with PlistEditor (haha, aint spoilin') Save and rename it to config.plist then replace CLOVER > EFI > CLOVER > config.plist with this new one. Open Terminal (I use iTerm, better): run this sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --volume /Volumes/Installer Sip some tea, or watch whatever you like (huhuhuuhhuuh), it will take a while (unless you're one of those plebs with ULTRA FAST WHATEVER WHATEVER usb keys) Once done, close terminal, you're ready to rock! On your ATIV! (the exciting part) Boot to your Firmware Setup (aka BIOS Setup, but the name before is the correct one), by using ONE of these methods: Power off > Press and hold Windows button under the screen > Power On > Once you see the SAMSUNG logo, release the Windows Button > TADAA! Power off > Press and hold Volume Down button > Power On > Choose "Enter Setup" > TADAA! Power off > Press repeatedly F2 > Power On [keep pressing] > TADAA! Power off > Press repeatedly F10 > Power On [keep pressing] > Choose "Enter Setup" > TADAA! If you're on windows already: Method 1 Plug a keyboard (dock or usb keyboard) Click on the power off icon (in the charm bar in win 8.x, in Start in win 10) Hover on Reboot Hold Shift while clicking on reboot You should see "Please Wait" Method 2 Open Settings Go to Updates and Recovery (win 8.x) or Update and Security (win 10) Go to Recovery Select Advanced Startup It should start the Advanced menu while showing "Please Wait" Once done, go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > UEFI Firmware Settings TADAA! If you have GRUB2 UEFI> Select System Setup > TADAA! Once in, do these changes: Advanced > Fast BIOS Mode OFF USB S3 Wake-up OFF (you can make it ON, but will drain battery as the dock will stay ON and may also be annoying and has an effect on sleep) AHCI Mode Control Auto Boot > BIOS Adaptive Brightness ON/OFF depending on choice (ON to help your eyes at night) Secure Boot OFF OS Mode Selection UEFI OS Plug your USB key, hit Save, and furiously keep pressing F10 Now you'll see your USB drive in the BOOT menu, select it, and Clover will start up Start up macOS Installer (eat a sandwich meanwhile, unless you have those SUPER ULTRA FAST WHATEVER usb keys!) Open Disk Utility At this point you can still back up and start saving up your files! LAST WARNING! Erase your WHOLE SSD (remember that I told you to save your stuff? Now you know why!) To this point, YOU. ARE. DONE. Close and Install macOS Note 1: You'll see it stuck at "One second left" for more than one second (lol), wait until it reboots. Note 2: If your tablet rebooted after the 1st phase but didnt start the USB key automatically, open the BOOT menu and run clover and start up the Installer, it will resume the Install as it should Note 3: I forgot to mention this, but you should have common sense without me telling that to you, PLUG YER CHARGER! Once done, we'll get to the next step. Part 3: Configure and Fix up your install Congratulations, you've successfully installed macOS Sierra on your Tab, you can clap now! For now, it's all about your IQ level (hope you have 3 digits, and you should if you made it up to here). Now, finish up your install and first boot, and make sure you're connected to the internet (Internal Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB Dongles... I dont care, deal with it, or you may just do Copy-Pasta from another computer, but that wont help for DSDT, for people experienced in OSx86, you know what you can do if you dont have internet). Once on your desktop, test the audio: Go to System Preferences Go to Sound Check if you see an Output device, if yes then proceed, if not, reboot again, if still not: Check your config.plist > Devices > Audio > Inject : 6 Check the kext AppleALC is under kexts > Other and no other folder under kexts but Other. Power off and boot the device up (cold boot) Select "Play feedback when volume is changed Change the volume using the keyboard keys, the buttons on the side wont work (lack of PS/2 drivers) Check TRIM: Hold Alt and click on the Apple menu > System Information Select SATA/SATA Express Select your drive Check TRIM Support : Yes in the description IF NOT: Open terminal Type sudo trimforce enable Accept and confirm Wait until the computer reboots (it will take a while, no worries) SIP and add "Anywhere" to open any app Disabling SIP Reboot to recovery Open terminal Type in: csrutil disable Reboot Enable "Anywhere" under Security and Privacy to allow foreign/unsigned apps Open terminal Type in: sudo spctl --master-disable Done Clover Open terminal and type: diskutil mount disk0s1 Copy the EFI folder in the USB to the EFI partition, so you'll get a EFI folder inside EFI partiton Make a folder named BOOT under folder EFI (so EFI > EFI > BOOT), copy CLOVERX64.EFI from CLOVER folder to it, rename it then (in BOOT folder) to BOOTX64.EFI You'll be able to boot Clover from your SSD UPDD Rewind If you want to buy the UPDD software with the gestures and other stuff, head to http://touch-base.com/and order your software for $171.00 or 133.00 Euros (if you're a superrich pleb!). This software will then be updated and supervised by Touch-Base. If you're broke and want a free (but annoying alternative) follow this: If you want UPDD to control Wacom digitizer and you dont mind recalibrating it each time, download ONE of these: Digitizer ignores pen proximity (no hover) LINK Digitizer reacts to pen proximity (hover) LINK Q: Why do I have to recalibrate the pen after each reinstall? A: Because this driver was made initially for Samsung Slate 7 (the father of our Tab 7) and it had only HD screen (not like our FHD one) and so, when you move the pen over the screen it only reacts to the "HD" resolution portion of the screen. This is what I think, correct me if I'm wrong. if you only want touch with UPDD and want to wait until Wacom releases its driver LINK (this is the driver used by Surface 1 and possibly 2 too) - RECOMMENDED! Now either way, you have to use some of these tools (made by Automator, not some fancy coding or anything): Download this file containing the tools: RE:UPDD (huhuhuhuh) (thanks to @thanh for UPDDrewind) Extract them and throw them in Applications folder Mount the UPDD dmg, throw the installer under /Library/ Run re-updd and let it do its thing (confirm and type your password when asked) Notes: Please go to Part 4 > 7, below before running UPDDrewind After each reboot (under less than 24 hours from the time of the install) run UPDDrewind, you can add it to autorun at boot by adding it to the list in System Preferences > Users and groups > Your Username > Login items After each 24 hours of usage, run re-updd, it will reinstall and ask to run the driver program Reboot (now it should boot from your SSD) DSDT TIME On Clover menu, hit F4, then boot normally Once on the desktop, open MaciASL Copy patched folder from CLOVER > EFI > CLOVER > ACPI > patched to your Desktop Copy DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml (check that SSDT-0 is SataTabl, how? open it with MaciASL and look for OEM Table ID, id it's not, look into all your SSDTs and get the correct one) to a new directory on your desktop name it patched Open DSDT.aml Go to MaciASL > Preferences > Source > + Name: RehabMan repo URL: http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/master Note: You may remove the others, you're free to choose. iASL > ACPI Specifications : 5.1 Close the Preferences and go to the Patch menu, apply these: [bat] Samsung Ativ Book 7 [igpu] Rename GFX0 to IGPU [syn] Fix _PLD Buffer/Package Error [syn] Fix *pnp/pnp lower case Error [usb] 7-series/8-series USB [usb] USB3 _PWR 0x0D (instant wake) For AR9285 only: [wifi] AR9285 WiFi RP02-PXSX : change RP02 in the 5th line to RP01 Download this patch file, click on Open in MaciASL's patch window, select Patch.txt and apply it. Save your DSDT Open terminal and copy this (everything): curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh && \ chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh && \ sh ~/ssdtPRGen.sh && \ diskutil mount /dev/disk0s1 && \ cp ~/Library/ssdtPRGen/ssdt.aml /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ && \ cp ~/Desktop/patched/* /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ && \ echo "All done." Hit enter and reboot Download these kexts (extract them if needed) and put them in Clover > kext > Other (mount your EFI volume using diskutil mount disk0s1): ACPIBacklight: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-acpi-backlight/downloads ACPIBatteryManager: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-acpi-battery-driver/downloads VoodooPS2Controller: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-voodoo-ps2-controller/downloads Reboot. Part 4: Extras and level up your macOStouch experience: Congrats again! Now you have a fully functional macOS tablet ... not yet! Why? Cuz it sux! like really! Just try it! Well then, to make it "suck less", we need to fix a number of things (HiDPI -cuz 1080p is ultra smoll-, LaunchPad size and UPDD Gestures fixes/enhancements, also wacom and 3G). ALL THESE ARE OPTIONAL, so: HiDPI Fix Open terminal and type: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool true Install and go to Unknown Monitor > Custom Resolutions > + > Scaled Resolution (on top): Here you can add any "Scaled" resolution. I recommend 1366x768 HiDPI resolution, so I add a scaled resolution of 2732x1536 as in a retina display resolution (1366*2 and 768*2) If you want a HiDPI resolution, get the width and heigh, multiply each by two, add it to SwitchResX. Click on Display (on top bar) and hit Write System settings, then File > Save Settings. Reboot LaunchPad 6x3 icons setting: Open terminal and type: defaults write com.apple.dock springboard-rows -int 3; defaults write com.apple.dock springboard-columns -int 6; defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool TRUE;killall Dock Result: For UPDD Guestures: Get my configuration here: UPDD Settings You can still use yours, and open UPDD Gestures > Settings Note: Do not put it on full screen, you'll need to force quit it to use it again (then run UPDDrewind) Wacom: Go to Wacom Drivers webpage Select Bamboo under "All" and download its driver Install Reboot For 3G I didn't test/try, you can always check the Yosemite/El Capitan thread in #1 or #20 for instructions and STARTING from #258 onward to get the new drivers and stuff. WIP Annoying Firewire Update Open terminal and type: softwareupdate --ignore ThunderboltFirmwareUpdate1.2 Configure re-UPDD and UPDDrewind re-UPDD: to run it without typing your password (may reveal your password explicitly to anyone knowing how to use Automator) Open Automator > Open > re-updd.app (or drag-n-drop re-updd on Automator) Go to "Run Applescript" part add password *PUT_YER_PASSWORD_HERE* after administrator privileges Hit the Hammer button above the box to check the syntax Save UPDDrewind: Open it with Script Editor Change INSERT_PASSWORD_HERE by your mac password (leave the quotes) Go to File > Export > File Format: Application Check Run-only Save Now your password wont be explicitly shown for this application, because we made it to run only, no edition/viewing is permitted afterwards. Delete the source UPDDrewind (if you save it somewhere else) KeyUP: download and throw in Applications Brightness: Download: http://bergdesign.com/brightness/#download Throw it in Applications If you're using black theme in macOS, right click on the app > Show Contents > Contents > Resources Rename: display_icon.png > display_icon_black.png display_icon_white.png > display_icon.png Close and reopen the app. CodecCommander: Check the posts under this one You're done!! You can celebrate your intelligence now! What's still needs to work on: Though we did all that, there are still parts that wouldn't just work right: Make UPDDrewind run when it detects that UPDD Gestures is ran An app to combine both re-updd and UPDDrewind, as they are just scripts and still needs refining (or just one AppleScript for password reasons) 3G/SIM card driver (I just didnt test, still, I'm putting it here) Fix the battery percentage, as I found that HWMonitor gives a precise percentage, like I have 98% in HWmonitor while the OS reports 100%, 96% in HWmonitor while OS reports 98% (they align at 50% and they diverge again) 100click/24hours for UPDD Driver (meh! but it's annoying to reinstall each time) VoodooPS2 driver configuration Microphone may stop working in the middle of work. Workaround: use your headphone with microphone or do a sleep-wake cycle. These are not in any given order, and they all matter to the smooth work on our devices. Credits: I would like to give to everyone who has done some work to get this device work: @Rehabman for drivers and DSDT patches @Apple for the SW @HWmonitor team for HWmonitor and FakeSMC and other drivers @everyone in Tablets Forum for every piece of information and work, especially in these threads: Yos/ElC 10.12 report First thread for XE700T1C @anyone I forgot to mention (PM me to add you here, you deserve it) Thank you all Guys, if anything is wrong, just report it, I'll fix it ASAP, thanks

    [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.
  14. midi-sama

    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

    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

    El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony Vaio S

    For audio, you'll need to read the instruction in AppleALC's documentation HOT STUFF! Someone is working on RLT PCIe card readers http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/321080-sineteks-driver-for-realtek-rtsx-sdhc-card-readers/ Can you try it? As I have my vaio's screen broken and need a replacement, so I cant test it. (also if anyone got a link for a cheap replacement, pls hlp. it's 1600x900 TN panel).
  17. Assalamo Alaikom Wa Rahmato Allahi Ta3ala Wa Barakatuh Installing OS X on Sony VAIO S HOT: 10.11 Install guide BETTER THREAD: El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony Vaio S BY JOHNREY Post #369 I’ve been using this Laptop over a year! And I was trying to get OS X working on it, I failed and retried so many times until I got it (this summer ) to work 100% I would like to thank many users and programmers who helped me during that year, including but not limited to: (This guide MAY work with many other Sony VAIOs with UEFI support, try it Althought I do NOT support other than the model I have, I may help but use your goddam brain ) MY VAIO's Specs: What’s working: Disclaimer: NO ONE IN THIS FORUM (INCLUDING ME) IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS (DATA, MATERIAL, EQUIPMENT…) OCCURRED TO YOU, YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE RESPONSIBLE, AND BY FOLLOWING THESE INSTRUCTIONS YOU AGREE TO TAKE ALL THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES. THIS INSTALLATION ISN'T WITHOUT RISKS SO TAKE ALL THE PRECAUTIONS BEFORE DOING ANY FOOLISH ACTION, BACKUP YOUR DATA! AND FEED YOUR CAT! Photos here are only examples, use your brain! Important: Results may differ depending on your hardware, but since we have a lot of common equipment, the difference may be little. I can’t be always active and answer your questions, and btw, I'm not a dev or coder, I’m just a guy who want to share his experience w/ people who have the same computer, and I gathered information here so you wont need to look for it. A lot of parts from this guide are taken from the original |Guide| AIO Guides For Hackintosh, but since many of you are lazy (not all, just many) I rewrote the important parts here with a slice modification for our laptops. AAAAAAAAAAAAAND What we need: SAVE EVERYTHING! NOT BECAUSE WE WILL FORMAT EVERYTHING BUT FOR SAFETY! (YOU MAY TRY TO PARTITION ON WINDOWS, BUT IT MAY NOT WORK TRY ANYWAY!) Steps: Fix DSDT and using SSDT! Remeber! NEVER EVER USE SOMEONE ELSE’S DSDT! AS Pavo SAYS: “It’s like using someone else’s underwear!” SO PLEASE, DO NOT USE OTHER’S DSDT! Fixing Audio(*) & USB Output Now let’s install Windows! (only for people who used 10) Type2: Install OS X then Windows) B) LAST TOUCHES B)

    El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony Vaio S

    1) Clover configurator: dont use that, it messes with many properties in the config.plist and overwrite many, use plisyeditor, xcode's plist editor or at least this http://tustin2121.github.io/jsPlistor/ 2)Check the guide where to put the injection number for audio. 3) Fix permissions and caches (you may use kext utility app)

    So basically your computer is pretty much useless on macOS. Anyway, here are some points to check on your build to make it work (and I may add "should make it work" as I, rn, dont have my VAIO but another computer, so I cannot immediatly give you an fix): Are you using a VAIO SVS or similar? (should be the closest to SVS family, SVT and SVP and SA/B/C are not that close, they have their own problems) Did you really not miss any point of the guide? It's complete and works 1000% of the time, any problem should be in your side Check that you have the latest Clover binaries, use the LZMA compressed release (it's smaller) and copy bootx64.efi and Cloverx64.efi in their places and update driver64UEFI files (one by one, do not paste the whole folder) and make sure you use the latest stable kexts. Make sure you have the vanilla config.plist from rehabman (check the guide) and make sure it's named config.plist (you can change the Audio layout injection as stated below) in clover > kexts folder, you MUST only have one folder named Other (as written here), and contains at least: FakeSMC + VoodooPS2 + Realtek ethernet driver + USBInjectAll. You MAY add these kexts: AppleALC - Lilu - Atheros drivers (built in atheros wifi card if you have it) - FakePCIID kexts - HWInfo - FakeSMC plugins - ACPIBatteryManager - ACPIBrightness - ACPI and any other kexts that the driver developer states possibility to work with clover injection. Kexts that must be on either L/E [Library > Extensions] or S/L/E [system > L > E] (L/E is better for future-proof updates) : DummyHDA (better on SLE) - CodecCommander (better on LE) - VoodooHDA - Patched AppleHDA (only SLE for obvious reasons) - ACPIPoller and any other kext that the developer stated to be stored in SLE or SE. Note: NEVER have a double kext on either of the folders, it may work for some, and it may be also the reason half or all of the other stuff wont work Audio: DO NOT USE A MIX OF PATCHES. So here are the kexts that should go with each other : [AppleALC + Lilu + CodecCommander + Vanilla AppleHDA] OR [Patched AppleHDA + CodecCommander] OR [DummyHDA + Vanilla AppleHDA + CodecCommander] OR [VoodooHDA + Vanilla AppleHDA/Apple HDA Disabler]* . With either ONE of these configurations, audio should work BUT with a valid Audio Inject in EITHER DSDT or config.plist or SSDT injection (try not to mix them, it may be a hit or miss). I think our Audio injection is 3 for AppleALC (also try 13 and 28 for AppleALC only) or 27 for DummyHDA/PatchedHDA (I'm just giving numbers from memory, check the patcher/patching program for the injection layout). With this, you need to reboot your computer 2 to 3 times for some. Brightness and Battery are DSDT realted patches and need their respective kexts, check the DSDT part of the guide and make sure you didnt do any typos or anything that may break your installation. At that I cant help as there is nothing to help you with, the guide is really clear, and use the MaciASL patches instead of the command line, it may help you troubleshooting. Also, now on 10.12.4+, it needs some extra care, check the link on the reply above yours. Hope these 7 points will help you further in your issue. I didnt try this yet, but I'll check it out, does it work for you?

    The OSX tablet experience?

    But it's i2c interface, my tablet has usb touch interface. Luckily i found with the help of some guys on samsung tablet thread a way to lower cpu consumption to normal, it's fast and snappy now, but still UPDD is not cutting it out for us. My tablet's screen died on me recently, and the price of a new one is $100! I got the whole tablet for $200, im not going to pay more for it. I hope i find a tablet as cheap as this one with the possibility of upgrading the wireless chip. The HP Elite 2X seems like a good option now that it has multitouch gestures, but the price is really high. If you (everyone here) have any device in mind, let me know. Thank you!

    HP Elite X2 1012

    No it doesnt as we have no need for it on our device. Touch and other devices are connected through usb interface. (Sorry guys for the offtopic)

    I sure have some issues now with brightness. Gonna repatch DSDT and test again. Also, sound after sleep has some issues, here is a work around: click on the power button once and the screen will go black, wait 10 secs (the power LED should still be green), click on it again to wake it up and you'll have sound again. If not, redo the same and get a bit more than 10 secs but not higher than 15-20 secs. I'll look into the CodecCommander kext to see how to fix this. Also BT may have some issues after wake from time to time (AR3011 in AR5B195/7 card or similar). Anyway, it's still WIP but 98% of the OS is working fine. Maybe a full clean install will help but I'm lazy and still have some important work that I dont want to redo again. Maybe later ...

    Ok I've been on 10.12 for a while now (a long while) ad I'm @10.12.4. So here are some advice and notices: Update your Clover binary. You can download the lzma package and copy the boot and cloverx64.efi and some additional drivers found in drivers64UEFI. Update your kexts. For AppleALC (which is still working btw!) you will need to download Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext (from the same developer, just explore his github) and put them in clover kext folder as supposed. Should work. if you still have Clover 3k and on 10.12.3, update clover before updating. Same goes if you're on ANY older version. (check first point) For some reason backlight broke for me, I'll update the kext and DSDT and check again. I'll even try IntelBacklight.kext, to see if it's working too. For Trackpad, before upgrading, make your own kext (from source, using Xcode) or update to the latest one, this way it will be recognized correctly on 10.12 and fix many issues. Also, as this should be obvious now for all, ScrLk = Brightness up and Pause = Brightness down, now it's working on many devices the same way. PrtSc will lock the trackpad if clicked on the PS2 keyboard, not an external one. Sometimes (again SOMETIMES), the thing just wont boot up (rarely, and I guess it's a problem from my part as I didnt update the OSx86 software, like clover and drivers). So please backup using TM or CCC or whatever you like. Reinstall CodecCommander. Dont know why, but just do it, if it's working for you, then good for you. Install kexts on L/E, NOT S/L/E, this is easier and wont break your install most of the time. Remove FakePCIID_XHCIMux and use USBInjectAll. <-- I need someone to help me shap this better using SSDTs, but for now it's working fine. May need some special DSDT patching. Dont remove FakePCIID.kext if you're using it with another kext (BCM injection for example). For some reason, I dont see the time left for my battery, and I suspect DSDT patching, as disabling it, will bring it back. WEIRD! That's all for now. If I remember anything else, I'll add it too!

    [GUIDE] [10.12] Sierra on Tab!

    ok guys, here is a utility that I found that replaces PlistEdit Pro, and works on every (EVERY) OS, since it's a website! http://tustin2121.github.io/jsPlistor/ Just copy the content of a plist and paste it in the Import... box.

    [GUIDE] [10.12] Sierra on Tab!

    Guys, stop it this instance! We're here to share knowledge not to argue about who got the best way. I would really like to see his method if it can help, also I would also help him and make a better tool to work with. The only retarded here is UPDD for making a crapoy software for a price as high as the skies, I would actually congratulate them for their work ok the driver on different devices worldwidely. But here is the issue: we got an official installer with the drivers and a working UPDD Gestures that is reinstallable and working with full touch support, while other didnt get support as much as us (Ativ and Surface users). If in the end we find a viable way to give everyone the opportunity to use UPDD Gestures on any device without conflicts that would be the best thing to happen to Osx86. Actually i would love to see developers here work on some kind of alternative driver to UPDD, that would be great for the whole community!
