    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    No need. I got them to load by installing them in L/E. I guess Clover updates will take care of this in time.

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    I seem to have lost Bluetooth upon installation of Beta 2. Now, neither BrcmPatchRam2.kext nor BrcmFirmwareData.kext load whether I put them in Clover/kexts/10.14 or Clover/kexts/Other. Anyone else have these kexts loaded?

    Are you sure you are booting via UEFI? If not sure, add it to drivers64 as well.

    Do you have apfs.efi installed in Clover? That might help.

    @MorenoAv Would you mind opening up your own thread in OSX Installation-Mojave about your audio issues? You've managed to pretty much take over this thread and I am more interested in knowing what problems there are with Mojave and not what problems there are in your installation. Thanks.

    I was hoping for 2-character password -- mf, my initials. Unfortunately, I got this: passwd: authentication token failure However, it appears that I can, at least, get a 4-digit "PIN" code to work. That's good enough, I guess.

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    I have Mojave installed on a test partition (only 40 GB). The nature of my testing, like everyone else, requires us to grant admin privileges to the apps we are installing or testing or even the mounting of the EFI partition. Because of this, I like to use a VERY short password to reduce the amount of typing and reduce the likelihood of mistakes in entering my password. However, Mojave requires a much stronger password. Any idea how to disable that feature?

    Yeah, I need it to boot. No problem with it.

    HWSensors

    My SSD drive has a temperature sensor that is not being recognized in macOS but it is recognized in Windows 10 with the app Speedfan. Any idea how to pick up the temperature sensor for the SSD in HWMonitor? The SSD runs much cooler in Windows than macOS and I think it is due to the fact that its temperature is not being detected. Thanks.
  10. Maybe related to SIP and can be disabled in Clover?

    HP Envy 17-ae100

    So I finally was able to fix my shutdown problem. The answer was in a 2011 post by Cassio on the Olarilla forum. (I know you saw it there but I am posting this in case someone else here has the same problem.). Cassio wrote that shutdown problems are typically BIOS-specific, which makes perfect sense. He posted some DSDT patches for different brands of motherboards. I assumed mine was an Intel board (just a lucky guess actually) and it worked. Here's the patch: # Change method _PTS where Arg0 is 0x05 (shutdown) # into method label _PTS code_regex_not If\s*\(LEqual\s*\(Arg0,\s*0x05\)\) code_regex ^((?:.|\n)*)$ replace_matched begin If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05))\n {\n Store (Zero, SLPE)\n Sleep (0x10)\n }\n Else\n {\n %1 } end; into definitionblock code_regex . code_regex_not OperationRegion\s*\(PMRS insert begin OperationRegion (PMRS, SystemIO, 0x0430, One)\n Field (PMRS, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve)\n {\n , 4, \n SLPE, 1\n } end Thanks so much for your help, MaLd0n. My laptop is just about perfect now. I think the only issue I still want to work on is that, when I switch from AC to battery, my screen brightness dims as it should but when I return to AC, it stays dim and does not go back to the previous AC brightness. Same thing when it wakes from sleep. Since I can adjust screen brightness with my F2 and F3 keys, it's not a big thing, just something to work on to make my system perfect.

    New macOS version hackathlon

    No worries. It's all good. It's just not my thing. All I do at work is compete against my opponents. It's nice to be able to collaborate when I'm not at work.

    New macOS version hackathlon

    I guess I will enjoy watching others who like being "first" competing for that "prize". Personally, I appreciate the collaborative effort that this community provides. I have seldom seen any macOS build installed perfectly by any one person without the help of any other person. It is always a collaborative effort. The willingness of people to help one another without any expectation of a prize or other compensation is one of the greatest aspects of this forum. That said, anyone who wants to race through the installation process of the next OS version, knock yourselves out (and good luck.)

    HP Envy 17-ae100

    So the video problem was not a bug. I did try a fresh install and still had the same problem. After that, I took a look at my Clover kexts and found the problem: My laptop does not require and cannot use the IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup.kext. I don't know how much shared video memory it has but it is apparently in excess of 32 MB. My last problem is that, when I shut down macOS, the laptop does not power off. The LED lights stay lit and, if the fans were running at shutdown, they keep on running.

    No luck with or without the SD card kext. I backed up my system and will try a fresh install. It's true that I did a fresh install and then restored a time machine back up from my old computer. That may have caused problems.
