    Samanosuke reacted to applCore in Clover & Custom SMBIOS on Real Macs   
    Yesterday's WWDC has set a huge number of real Mac owners into an angry spiral. Many users have systems that are good enough to run 10.14, but are now excluded for likely largely financial and marketing positioning from Apple. For example 2009 Mac Pros with Metal capable video cards shouldn't be blocked whatsoever, but there are many others too who should be pretty much fine if they're not doing serious gaming or animation on their iMacs or Mac Minis.
    We need to start figuring out or pulling together some instructions (if it's already possible) for real Macs to run Clover and to define custom SMBIOS entries. Basically I'm 100% on board with running real Macs as Hackintosh systems at this point. I'm not willing to flush over $20,000 of Apple hardware down the toilet, especially when these systems still run faster than most current systems and are working great for even VR game dev.
    Can someone give some insight as to what may need to be done to start moving down this road now so we can start testing this out now on spare systems that have been blacklisted by Apple?

    Samanosuke reacted to Peke in i7-6700k CPU VCORE not accurate (HWMONITOR & SMC MONITOR)   
    Hi guys. 
    HWmonitor & SMC Monitor shows not realistic VCORE of my CPU (i7-6700K OC at 4,5 GHZ and stable)
    Even under 100% load Vcore show an unrealistic value of 0.656 V.
    The CPU Voltage is fixed in BIOS at 1.3 volts & in windows dual boot CPU Core Voltage readings are fine and exactly as supposed under load & Idle.
    Im using the latest rehabMan-FakeSMC-2018-0403 files.
    Any insight is appreciated as I want to check Voltages accurately.

    This tutorial will assist you to copy the needed kernel and Extra folder to your HDD once you've finished installing OS X.
    Note that where it says "Your HDD Name" or "Your USB Name" you must replace this with the partition names. For example, ElCapitanHD or with spaces it is "El Capitan HD"
    To begin you will need to boot into your USB installer. Once past the language selection you will see the menu bar. Navigate to Utilities > Terminal
    From here, if you don't know the names of your drives type the command below to find them,

    diskutil list

    Now that you know the names. Start by navigating to the root of your USB.

    cd /Volumes/"Your USB Name"

    Now copy the Extra folder to the HDD.

    cp -R Extra /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"/

    Now check to make sure it copied,

    cd /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"

    You should see the Extra folder there now. Now to copy the kernel. We need to go back to the USB drive and copy it to the HDD.

    cd /Volumes/"Your USB Name"/System/Library/Kernels/
    cp -R kernel /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"/System/Library/Kernels/

    The kernel should now be in place. If you want you can also copy it to the Extra folder for good measure,

    cd /Volumes/"Your USB Name"/System/Library/Kernels/
    cp -R kernel /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"/Extra/

    You can now reboot. Once booted into OS X install Enoch to your HDD. Make a copy of your Extra folder first as the Enoch instalation may edit some files. You can now boot from the HDD rather than USB.

    Samanosuke reacted to Codinger in [IMPORTANT] Always remove S/N & MLB & ROM & SmUUID!   
    Hello newcomer,
    As i saw that many users upload their config.plist or SMBIOS.plist with non deleted S/N and MLB, ROM values. Noobs please never upload your unique machine values like ROM, MLB, Serial Number or System UUID. If you upload these values your Apple ID will be suspended form Apple services (AppStore, FaceTime, iCloud, iMessage, iTunes ...) directly, because some other noobs will try to "clone" your system as described here. 
    It is an easy process ... simply remove these information from your uploaded media as blurring the data (watch here) or as removing / censoring the files for upload (watch here)
    Thank you for your attention and have a good start, here, in the forums at Insanelymac.   
    P.S. don't blame me for this shared serial. I had found it just before i wrote this guide .
