    10.14.3 > 10.14.4 stuck on update

    had the same problem. how do you update clover if you cannot boot into macOS?

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    Hi everyone, I'm looking for suggestions for further improvement. I have coil while (not terrible but there), fuzzy text in some apps (skype for business in the chat windows) and poor performance (LuxMark v3.1 = 6384), although I don't game in MacOS. The column on the left is what I'm currently running and the column on the right is @CMMChris optimal settings from his Jan 29 post. When I tried Chris's settings, the fan spun up every 60 seconds and the performance in LuxMark was still poor. (btw, if I use stock macOS settings, my Lexmark score is 30k). I have a Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX VEGA 64 8G (PG X R RX VEGA 64 8G) with: Engine Clock / Memory Clock Boost Clock: 1546 MHz / 945 MHz Base Clock: 1247 MHz / 945 MHz

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    hi. about to run some tests to try and get rid of the remaining coil whine (I assume it's coil whine) on my ASRock Phantom 64 and have a quick question. After I make my adjustments in vega64-mac-pp_table-gen-V1.5.xlsx and convert the Hex to Base64, is this the only field I need to update in the info.plist for VegaTab_64.kext using Xcode? Information Property List\IOKitPersonalities\Controller\aty_properties\PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable (type Data) thanks!

    according to tom's hardware, the card is a reference card. guess I'll give it a shot.

    not sure what was going on. unplugged and replugged the monitor and temps are fine now. on another note, found this thread which suggests flashing your reference Vega 64 card with the bios from a Sapphire Nitro+ RX Vega 64. just curious your thoughts.

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    Hi Chris, been running your VegaTab_64.kext for awhile now without issue and recently added a second monitor. Fan is now running high and so are temps when sitting idle. The LED load shows mostly 0 but sometimes shows full load when not recalling doing anything. Any ideas?

    Hackintool v2.8.0

    Yeah, that did the trick! No idea why during Step 7, when all the SS ports show up, why none turn green when I plug/unplug a USB3 device. I matched all my HSXX ports that are USB3 with the same SSXX ports and left it in the list. Step 9 didn't do anything for me, but maybe that's for USB3.1 ports? Either way, all seems to be working fine now. Attached is the code from my info.plist and I attached my USBPorts.kext in case anyone has the same Z270-P (save you some time). Now I'm just wondering, do I keep XHCI-200-series-injector.kext and do leave the XHCI Patches in Acpi for my config.plist? I assume the answer is yes but would like to confirm. @headkaze nice job on the tool! thank you! <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleGetInfoString</key> <string>1.0 Copyright © 2018 Headsoft.

    Was thinking the same. Will do it again but this time include the matching SS ports to the active (green) HS ports. Hopefully that does the trick.

    Hackintool v2.8.0

    didn't work for me. here are my steps: 1\ Downloaded 0.7.0 USBInjectAll.kext and put it in Other folder. Opened config.plist with Clover Configurator and added settings in Acpi using pulldown menu “List of Patches”, saved. - xHCI controller must be named 'XHC' (typical is XHC, but some use XHC1) (was already there) - EHCI #1 controller must be named EH01 (typical is EHC1) - EHCI #2 controller must be named EH02 (typical is EHC2) File XHCI-200-series.injector.kext was already in Other folder 2\ rebooted, went to Configure option in the Clover Boot Menu and added args -uia_exclude_ss -uia_exclude_ssp 3\ Opened FB-Patcher v1.5.9 and most of the USB ports were already highlighted in green. I used my thumb drive to highlight the remaining and changed the port type to be correct (USB 2 and 3's - I don't have any 3.1's on my Z270-P), then deleted all the ones that weren't in green. 4\ Rebooted, Clover Boot -> Configure and added args: -uia_exclude_hs -uia_exclude_ssp uia_include=HS06,HS08 (my mouse and kb) 5\ Ran FB-Patcher again, but now all the ports were disabled except the ones with my mouse and keyboard. I unplugged my keyboard and plugged in my thumb drive just to see if it made a difference, then plugged the keyboard back in. There were no other lines in the list so rebooted. 6\ Rebooted, Clover Boot -> Configure and added args: -uia_exclude_ss -uia_exclude_hs uia_include=HS06,HS08 (my mouse and kb) 7\ Ran FB-Patcher and now see a bunch of SS lines that weren't there before. Tried thumb drive on ports but everything already in green stayed green and none of the new SS lines turned green, so I deleted all of those and finally exported the USBPorts.kext (content below). 8\ Copied USBPorts.kext to Other and deleted USBInjectAll.kext from Other, rebooted. 9\ Plugged in my usb 3.0 thumb drive, went to System Information -> USB and selected my thumb drive from the list on the top right and the information below still reads: Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec Something not right. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleGetInfoString</key> <string>1.0 Copyright © 2018 Headsoft.

    very cool. so if I'm still using your original VegaTab_64.kext, just add 1002_687f.rom to ROM folder? My fan spins down in the middle of loading the OS so not sure it's necessary but I'll give it a shot. thanks! still haven't had time to play with the powertable using your xls. maybe next weekend. btw, you have a newer version of VegaTab_64.kext? I'm currently using ver 0.1

    Hi. I booted with Other\USBInjectAll.kext v0.6.5, ran FBPatcher, tested all the ports, changed the connector type to USB2 or USB3, deleted all the unhighlighted ports, exported to USBPorts.kext, deleted USBInjectAll.kext and copied USBPorts.kext to Other, rebooted but still can't get USB 3.0 working.

    Hi CMMChris, was doing more research and wanted to compare the powertable from win10 vs table in your XLS. Not sure if this is the same table in your VegaTab_64.kext but the results are very similar. Wanted to get your feedback.
