    Random hangs and freezes Mojave

    If someone with a real mac using an apple branded SSD could check their System Report and let us know if Trim is enabled on the disk hosting the APFS volume, that would be useful.
  2. Sense of deja vu here. I still had the SSDT-PM.aml in my EFI Load folder. Don't know how it was working with HS. Thanks for taking the time to look at this not once but twice (back in June).
  3. Next problem - system reboots when brought out of sleep. I've tried the old trick of deleting the Ethernet connection and recreating it to no avail. Nothing in system log or asl files as far as I can see that relates to it.
  4. The UGreen USB / DAC arrived and worked straight away, so one problem circumvented! Thanks for the pointer.
  5. Hi IronManJFF, thanks for checking. VoodooHDA is getting injected in the bdmesg output (below), which matches the HS output, and the Sound panel is essentially the same as yours. If I select the SPDIF output and then start iTunes, it immediately switches to a Line Out port. I'll order a USB to DAC device from Amazon and do what you're doing with the iTrack Solo, but cheaper! 07:856 00:000 Found Intel Panther Point HDA Controller [8086:1E20] PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1B,0x0) 07:857 00:001 Found HDA Codec #2: ALC892 [10EC:0892] Rev 0x03 Stepping 0x02 07:864 00:006 Injected PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1B,0x0) - "layout-id" = 03 00 00 00 (4) - Success 07:864 00:000 Injected PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1B,0x0) - "PinConfigurations" = 10 40 01 01 30 10 01 01 20 60 01 01 40 90 A1 01 70 90 A1 02 60 30 81 01 80 40 21 02 50 11 45 01 (32) - Success 07:864 00:000 Injected PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1B,0x0) - "AFGLowPowerState" = 01 00 00 00 (4) - Success 07:864 00:000 Injected PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1B,0x0) - "MaximumBootBeepVolume" = 73 (1) - Success 07:864 00:000 Injected PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1B,0x0) - "platformFamily" = 00 (1) - Success
  6. Motherboard. I use the optical s/pdif out into a DAC into a Sonos ZP90 into a modded Lepai 2020A amp. If I use the Line out (Green) directly to the amp I get a load of hiss that varies in volume as I move the BT mouse around.
  7. Many thanks to @IronManJFF, ,@Cecekpawon and @TypeThree for putting the BIOS together. Took the plunge to update my live system today, having installed an MSI ITX Aero RX560 graphics card. Everything working except sound (again). I'll stick with it, so if anyone has any ideas about getting sound working, I'd be grateful.
  8. Excellent result! I used the 1.1.9 release version of apfsdriverloader in my ROM (no apfs.ffs) and did bcfg boot addp for the drive (fs1:), which was now pointing to the apfs volume, whereas before it was pointing to the EFI partition of my hfs+ backup, rebooted, hit F12 to bring up the list and there it was. Logged in and set the startup drive and rebooted and it went straight in. Great to see the apfs output silenced too. Many thanks to you and the other developer(s). PS this was with a single apfs volume with HS, not Mojave.
  9. Thanks for the work. I get the green screen, but no APFS system loaded, although when I boot from an HFS+ backup on another drive, that mounts the APFS volume. I'm not sure if the QUO board needs the aptio fix. Does the apfsdriverloader depend on it?
  10. You know we're going to sit and wait for you to crack it! Just a matter of time...
  11. Shame - I was hoping to avoid the regular ROM update as well.

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    Make sure you use bcfg boot addp. Plain bcfg boot add doesn't work for me.
  13. My system stops for about 30-40secs after about a dozen HID: Legacy shim 2 msgs - then it continues and finishes the boot. Is it worth leaving it for a few minutes when it stops? Or is there an SSDT lurking around on the EFI partition? Try unplugging all but necessary USB devices?
  14. Ironmanff put together an SSDT some time ago that helped overclocking, but Sierra forced us to stop using it, however, my QUO has run quite happily overclocked up to 4.2GHz without it and HWMonitor shows that the powermanagement is working fine, although it doesn't clock down quite as low (1.6 instead of 1.2) as it did with the SSDT. No changes to the DSDT needed. I'm also using the BIOS that Ironmanff put together, although I've now updated the APFS.ffs module and of course the Defaults.plist to keep up with the BIOS version and release dates. HS running fine using APFS.
