  1. Yeah for any of you hanging out on this thread, the newest version apparently works fine on Workstation 15. I have not personally tried it, but others have reported success.
  2. According to the README file on his GitHub (last updated two days ago as of this posting), Workstation 15 support is present in v3.0. As far as I am aware, v3.0 has not been released yet, but at least we know that it is being worked on. Has anybody tried using the current latest version on 15?
  3. Since I have not been very active on here for a while, I suppose I should let you all know that although Donk and I were in talks about either me or someone else taking over the project, those talks have unfortunately subsided and I haven't heard from him.

    Ipad 1

    Yeah but the problem with that is that iOS 9 does not have any jailbreaks available.

    EFI_Clover for VMware

    In order to use this, do you have to have a patched version of VMware using Donk's unlocker, or is this intended for booting macOS on an unpatched VMware install?

    Ipad 1

    Would anyone know if it is possible to cross-flash a newer version of iOS to it or perhaps modify a newer iOS version to put on it? I'd like to run iOS 9.
  7. Has anyone here tried it? I know they say you shouldn't, but it seems harmless as long as you set a root password.
  8. ...has anyone tried it? I'm surprised to see that I didn't find another thread on here about it already. Edit: Looks like someone posted one while I was searching for one. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/330098-macos-high-sierra-root-user-vulnerability/

    Forum Dark theme

    If a dark theme was added, I would definitely use it in favor of what we have now. I don't have anything against the current theme, but I prefer darker themes because they're easier on the eyes. I realize that I could use a Chrome plugin to add custom styling, but I'm not so desperate for a dark theme that I would take the time to do that.

    Thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying it. Just so you know, Donk has actually put a stable release that adds support for Workstation 14, and it undoubtedly is much better than this release. As for me taking over the project, that remains to be seen. Donk has discussed it with me, but there is someone else who has apparently expressed interest in doing so, and as far as I am aware, Donk has not made a decision as to who he would like to have take over. Regarding the 128MB video memory limit, I am afraid that this limitation is beyond the control of the patcher. In order for a larger memory limit to be supported, VMware will have to implement the appropriate changes.

    Very slow website.

    Really? All good here!
  12. I do not know. You will have to ask Donk about that one.
  13. Are you sure this problem is related to the patch? From the admittedly-little research I have done, this is typically a snapshot-related issue (see https://communities.vmware.com/thread/440046). This is obviously an virtual machine from an older VMware version (as indicated by the presence of an "Upgrade this virtual machine" option in the UI), so it's possible that something may be wrong with the VM itself. Try creating a new VM but using your existing VMDK file. If you have snapshots, you will have to look in to how to move them if that is something you want to do. I have no experience with migrating a VM with snapshots, so I really do not know how the process works.

    Hmm. In that case, you may want to wait until Donk puts out an official 2.0.9 release. I may be taking the project over from Donk, but before I do, he needs to teach me some stuff.

    What version of macOS are you trying to use? If it is High Sierra, I am wondering if perhaps it is an issue with the HFS+ to APFS switch.
