    So OpenCore boots latest beta macOS 10.15 without any problem!
    Kext injection is working without any interference. 
    Thanks @vit9696

    Any plans for this to run on bios using UEFI emulation? Like the clover legacy boot mechanism.

    May be ebuild.sh changed and I didn't notice the change in 
    !ifndef NO_GRUB_DRIVERS INF Clover/FileSystems/GrubFS/src/EXFAT.inf #INF Clover/FileSystems/GrubFS/src/NTFS.inf !endif Before this I always compiled with the key NO_GRUB_DRIVERS.
    I will check next release.

    Are you in your senses? What is wrong with copying EmuVariableEfi from e.g. MdeModulePkg or Clover (if you cannot compile) and just putting it to drivers? Sure, we do not support this configuration as we want a cleaner solution, but why would not it work in the first place?
    @dgsga, am I right that Clover devs modded EmuVariable in a way that it does not load unless explicitly controlled with a protocol you added?

    Hi apianti,
    Let me try to address your questions in order.
    I am not particularly sure whether this refers to memory configuration available in SMBIOS or not, as presently memory performance is not affected anyhow regardless of what is present in SMBIOS. Firmware is responsible for memory training, and thus the operating system can do almost nothing but use what is given. Neither the amount of memory slots, nor their order, not even their channels, nothing of that really affects the operating system. This is pretty much cosmetics except useable memory size. You might think differently potentially due to some legacy, yet I will need code proofs in case you think it is important.
    Perhaps, I misunderstood you, and what you meant under memory configuration performance was rather building performance and the quality of the tables provided. This is not a big concern either, as OpenCore simply provides what is created by the firmware with little to no modifications. So far it seems to work most reliably on all modern computers (2008 or so) and virtual machines. Additionally it provides good results in "About my Mac".
    The only "real" issue, that we are aware of, are very rare motherboards, which contain incorrect information in their SMBIOS tables. We do not have such boards, but believe this may be addressed with a dedicated MemorySMBIOS section in PlatformInfo, where one could describe his memory (as I mentioned on applelife), yet the issue has low priority, and we do not have plans to work on it in the considerable future. If this worries you, you can try to write a design document and create an issue in the bugtracker. After we come to some consensus, I suppose you could contribute a useful feature to OC.
    There is, as boot strap application is not meant to be the only way to start OpenCore. OpenCore should generally be bootable from Drivers#### NVRAM variables (currently not fully implemented), from shell, or from firmware. Bootstrap is a way to ensure that target firmware definitely does see the image as defined by UEFI spec, it may be removed if otherwise not required.
    The modular approach behind OC is primarily that OcSupportPkg libraries can be used to build whatever necessary in whatever configuration, not particularly for building a bootloader, but implementing other entirely unrelated projects. On the contrary, the front end is defined by the spec (named instruction manual), and while it is extensible, a spec change is needed to bring any new functionality. For this reason the written spec in human language translates 1:1 into config.plist, which then transparently translates 1:1 into OcConfigurationLib. We believe that conformance and unification are necessary here to actually ensure predictability and reliability for the end user, who always knows how the target system behaves, and what is actually happening. Indeed, this made configuration monolithic, but we consider it a benefit not a downside. We have some internal plans to expose the configuration for read and potentially modification for drivers (like UI or external providers) as a part of some protocol, but we do not have plans to let drivers add anything bypassing the spec.
    OpenCore is and will remain an open source project. There are quite a number of opensources licenses (see this page), and BSD 3-clause license is one of them. I think you might confuse GPL or something alike with an open source license. One of the key benefits of BSD 3 clause license contrary to GPL (and several others) is to ensure that the code does not "disown" your patents and does not prohibit code usage in closed source projects. This is very important, as you probably noticed, that OpenCore has a lot of code that has nothing to do to macOS or bootloaders in general, it is just generic UEFI code we wrote. For these very reasons, primarily to be able to contribute our code in similar or reworked form to upstream, such as TianoCore EDK II, we do not use licenses prohibiting commercial use. This is the same with all projects hosted at Acidanthera unless specified otherwise.

    Dr. Hurt got a reaction from witampanstwa_ in [How To] Share files between OS X 10.7+ and Android over WiFi without SAMBA   
    **I'm not sure if this topic goes here so mods feel free to move it to the appropriate section.
    Ever since updating from 10.6.8 to 10.8.2, I've had a nasty problem with file sharing between my Android (ES File Explorer) and Mac OS.
    I could no longer authenticate into my Mac using SMB to access different "volumes". The only way was to add the entire volume I need as a public folder which in my case is totally unacceptable.
    I needed password protected access to the volumes.
    How I got around it?
    Easy. Using SFTP:
    I went into System Preferences -> Sharing -> marked "allow remote login".
    Next on my android tablet, I opened es file explorer, selected SFTP, typed my IP, user name and password and BOOM. I have full access to all mounted volumes again. And I believe its even faster than SMB.
    What happend between Snow Leopard and Lion/Mountain Lion?
    Well, I believe that Apple ran into a licensing issue with SAMBA so they had to trim down support for SMB and replace it with AFP. Only AFP can authenticate and access password protected volumes.
    This problem appears to be plaguing OS X Lion/ML users everywhere. Most people suggest reinstalling the old SAMBA which can be a pain in the @ss. I believe this solution is much more elegant.
    I hope this comes in handy to someone like me who depended on SAMBA to share files between android and Mac OS.

    Hi @Slice can you make AudioDXE.efi play sound without nvram set,, like bootchimedxe. So AudioDxe.efi will automatic select audio output and sound at high volume if no nvram set yet in "Startup Sound Output".

    -273C is 0 Kelvins (absolute zero). I think this happens when no battery temperature is reported (battery hardware doesn’t support reporting temperature).
    As for sudden shutdowns, that could mean your battery is going bad. It’s reporting incorrect capacity. Try to calibrate it by charging to 100% then discharging to power off. Repeat a couple of times.

    The boot chime works perfectly using AudioDXE.efi and BootChimeDXE.efi in the drivers64 folder. Those (and only those) two drivers are enough to get the chime going when the macOS boot entry is selected in Clover.
    The only annoyance for me is that Clover takes 3 extra seconds to start. Hopefully that will be slightly optimized in the future.
    PS. My laptop does have UEFI but its disabled. I'm using legacy boot.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but how do I get the boot chime with Clover legacy?
    Which files do I need and where do I put them? Also, any changes needed in config? 
    I'm using embedded theme.
    Edit: Got it to work. A users' guide would still be useful though.

    I sometimes get reboot too as soon as the boot progress bar appears.
    Booting in verbose works. Alternatively, keepsyms=1 also works.
    I'm not sure what's causing it but glad I'm not the only one.
    This doesn't always happen. Can't seem to find a way to reproduce it.

    I don't know,, my notebook now can sleep in charge mode,, and i can wake it with USB device (mouse), before of it it will instant wake with ACPIBatteryManager.kext and i Need to remove PRW method from GLAN, EHC1, EHC2 and XHC to avoid instant wake when notebook in charge mode. Now,, with VirtualSMC.kext, i don't need to remove _PRW method from those device. System can sleep well in Charge and uncharge condition, and system can wake from USB device (_PRW method is still there).

    No, just Clover and the RC script.

    Dr. Hurt reacted to amoxitine in Atheros wireless driver OS X 10.11/12 for unsupported cards   
    Hi Doc,
    I'm using a combo of the patched Airport kext, with Lilu and the ath9k/Inject/Fixup kexts installed in Clover / Other and then using the -ath9485 boot param in config. No DSDT patches in relation to that AFAIK, but where I've had help from other people over the last month, a patch might have snuck in there but probably unlikely.
    Would really like to crank the speed up so I'm curious as to why you're getting better transfer speeds and I'm not, perhaps it's where I am using the arth9k stuff that is actually causing the speed issues? Might try disabling that to see if that does indeed work.

    I have a Dell DW1703 which has the AR9485 and oddly whilst in general I only see a max Tx rate of 11Mbps when connected to all other routers I've tried so far, when I connect my home router (which is an old BT Home Hub 3.0) it's actually showing a Tx Rate of up to 72Mbps and comparatively the transfer speeds are faster (hitting 20-30Mbps from a 60-70Mbps connection) rather than the 1-5Mbps I would get when connected to other WiFi routers.
    Not sure why or what my hub is doing differently to get these increased speeds, but I thought I'd mention that it would appear the 11Mbps Tx 'limit' on the AR9485 can be broken somehow.

    Since Clover can change PCI config registers, I’d like to suggest integrating the functionality of FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext
    This’ll replace the need for complicated DSDT patches or additional kexts. And I believe this is a patch used by a big enough number of users to warrant its addition to Clover.
