  1. I too am running on unRAID and was experiencing audio stuttering on a number of VMs but not macOS using the patched Clover 3578. After installing email4nickp's patched Clover 3923 my unRAID Sierra VM started to experience audio issues similar to what Peter_sm is experiencing. The solution that worked for me was to isolate and assign CPUs to the VM. Alter your syslinux configuration to include the cpus you'd like to isolate append isolcpus=2,3 initrd=/bzroot and add an emulator pin to you're VM configuration <cputune> <vcpupin vcpu='0' cpuset='2'/> <vcpupin vcpu='1' cpuset='3'/> <emulatorpin cpuset='0'/> </cputune> More information can be found here: https://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=49051.0 Currently running patched Clover 3923 without issue after applying the above.
  2. I too was able to get Sierra up and running with readkopp's Clover build. The QEMU flag enabled in Clover results in a slow system (1/4 speed seems about right) and without the flag all seems well. It's a shame this patch hasn't yet made it into Clover and seems to have stalled. For reference, here is the ticket. I have been unable to get Clover to inject kexts but using Clover's fake ID feature and installing the attached HDMIAudio.kext enabled HDMI sound for my R9 270. I'm running this OVMF VM on an unRAID machine and the full install process can be found here. HDMIAudio.kext.zip
  3. @holgix I believe you're stuttering sound is a Clover and not a voodoohda issue. Clover does not recognize and automatically set the correct Bus Speed of our Merom processors. Determine the bus speed of your particular processor and use Clover Configuration to set the correct CPU Bus Speed. For my T7250 I've set a value of 181,000
  4. @fusion71au, Thank you for your reply! After successfully rebranding my wi-fi card as an Airport Extreme, I was still unable to find a wireless network. However, rolling back to the 10.10 DP3 IO80211Family.kext has successfully allowed my wifi card to connect to wireless networks. I've since upgraded to the 10.10 DP5 IO80211Family.kext which also works. It seems the public beta of IO80211Family.kext has some issues with certain Broadcom cards. EDIT: In order to correct my network card's MAC address, I rolled back to the 10.7.4 AppleYukon2.kext (attached). Then, hex edit /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleYukon2 at offset 1A6F5 by changing the numbers in red to your ethernet cards MAC address. 1A6F5 : C6 45 D2 00 C6 45 D3 11 C6 45 D4 22 C6 45 D5 33 C6 45 D6 44 C6 45 D7 55 Repair permissions, and reboot. The boot flag kext-dev-mode=1 is not necessary for this particular modification. AppleYukon2_10.7.4.zip
  5. fusion71au, you're on a roll! keep up the great work! I've successfully installed 10.10 public beta on my m1530 following fusion71au's chameleon guide a couple of pages ago. Almost everything is working, including Slice's latest version of FakeSMC, but I am having issues with my networking. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 1.) My ethernet card is working properly but the MAC address defaults to 00:11:22:33:44:55. In previous OS X versions I've been manually entering the correct MAC address by hex editing /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleYukon2. Is there a known solution for either Mavericks or Yosemite Public Beta? 2.) My Dell TrueMobile 1505 (BCM4321 pci 1434:4328) wifi is not working correctly (bluetooth seems to be functional) in Yosemite Public Beta and has worked OOB for the past few iterations of OS X. AppleAirportBrcm43224 is loading, the card is identified as a Third Party Wireless Card (en1), yet it is unable to find any wireless networks. It is in a constant state of "Looking for Networks" and manually joining a wireless network does not work. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
  6. I've successfully updated my m1530 to 10.9.2 without issue. However, I am experiencing one Clover related problem. I have hibernatemode set to 29 and the deep sleep is working properly but I am experiencing a CMOS reset on the subsequent boot. I've tried with both the 10.9.2 AppleRTC and a rollback to the previously 10.9.1 AppleRTC. Additionally, the AppleRTC flag in Clover's KernelAndKextPatches section is set to YES. Any thoughts?
  7. I for one am not bored with your posts... In fact, I've made the switch to Clover with the help of your guide on the linked page and all is running exceptionally well! Much thanks to this forum for keeping this beast of a laptop running OSX since day one... A couple of notes: - If you are interesting in testing out Clover, start by installing to a USB drive. This worked best for me by formatting a GUID drive with 1 HFS+ Journaled partition. Once you are satisfied, you can install the Clover bootloader to your OSX disk and copy over your USB EFI files. - Format the destination drive's EFI partition (replacing disk9 with the appropriate disk) diskutil list newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/rdisk9s1 - Install Clover using fusion71au's settings in the above post - Put the appropriate files (again, detailed in fusion71au's post) in the appropriate EFI folders. - Reboot The hard drive on my m1530 is Advance Formatted (4k) so I had to complete a few additional steps (similar to my initial install of Chameleon) in order to install Clover to the OSX drive. Following the above: - Copy the 3 attached files (fdisk440, boot1f32, bootaf) to the root of a USB drive with 1 partition called USB - boot from a disk (not partition) other than your OSX disk (I used a USB installer) - Open disk Utility and unmount all partitions on the drive you wish to install Clover on - Close Disk Utility and open Terminal - Execute the following (replacing disk9 with the appropriate disk) diskutil list /Volumes/USB/fdisk440 -u -f /Volumes/USB/boot0af -y /dev/disk9 dd if=/dev/rdisk9s1 count=1 bs=512 of=/Volumes/USB/origbs cp /Volumes/USB/boot1f32 /Volumes/USB/newbs dd if=/Volumes/USB/origbs of=/Volumes/USB/newbs skip=3 seek=3 bs=1 count=87 conv=notrunc dd if=/Volumes/USB/newbs of=/dev/rdisk9s1 - Reboot Fusion71au, keeping your Clover configuration post up do date would be most helpful. To all the contributors to this community, keep up the great work! Clover_boot.zip
  8. immo and DarwinX, Your fast and informative replies are greatly appreciated! For some reason, I was indeed having permission issues and the DSDT was not being read. I'm still having issues with my custom DSDT but after correcting the permissions I am able to boot properly with Brett's DSDT on Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r643. I have removed AppleHDA.kext and have sound once again with VoodooHDA.kext in /S/L/E. For some reason I have never been able to get FakeSMC.kext to work properly in either /E or /S/L/E. My Extra folder contains (I'm not sure if they are all necessary): AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext OSXRestart.kext PlatformUUID.kext VoodooBattery.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext VoodooSDHC.kext In the next few days I'll try and get my custom DSDT working again as the system runs hotter now and I've lost HDMI video that was previously achieved in 10.6.4 by following hotcorez guide. Thanks again for your contributions in regard to my issues and the community at large!
  9. Looking for a little bit of help after upgrading to 10.6.5. I was running fine on 10.6.4 and after an apparently successful upgrade to 10.6.5 I have only been able to boot via the Chameleon boot disk. Attached is an image of the errors I receive during boot in verbose mode and the boot fails with at frozen gray boot screen. My setup is a m1530 T7250 with 8600M GT Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r643 via unofficial installer with a custom DSDT (Brett's DSDT has failed as well.) Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  10. Uho, hotcorez put together this great guide to achieve HDMI video on 10.6.4. Hot-plugging does not work so you must reboot after plugging in the HDMI cable. One or more of the files in post #2 might be of help to you. Good luck!
  11. Guide for Nvidia 8600m on 1064 - all outputs working

    A huge thanks to hotcorez and the nvenabler team! I now have HDMI video (no Audio) on my XPS 1530m T7250 with 8600m GT (0407) running 10.6.4. Sleep, shutdown, USB, and VoodooHDA all seem to be working but if I am missing something please advise. Attached is the necessary mbp3,1 VGA ROM (provided by hotcorez!), my CPU specific myDSDT.dsl file, compiled DSDT.aml, smbios.plist, and com.apple.Boot.plist. Yo can make your own custom DSDT by following this fantastic thread. As always, know the specifics of your machine before using any files and use these carefully and at your own risk. m1530.zip
  12. Great find Chrysaor! I can confirm the kext found in post #1 gives me a fully working ethernet card on my m1530 running a vanilla 10.5.6. Simply place/replace AppleYukon2.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/ then repair permissions and restart. Thank you!
  13. AppleTV Plugin Code Sample -> Local Movie Player

    ibcrootbeer <-love the stuff... anyway, give this a shot. Once I had ATVfiles working, I was able to change the default location of my movie files by using this code to create a symbolic link. mkdir /Volumes/volume_name/Users/frontrow/Movies Creates the folder frontrow. You may get an error saying this folder already exist. If so, this is not a problem so continue. rm -r /Volumes/volume_name/Users/frontrow/Movies Removes the Movies folder, and all of it contents, that resides in the frontrow users folder. ln -s /Volumes/volume_name/Users/your_username/Movies /Volumes/volume_name/Users/frontrow This creates a symbolic link to your current movie folder. Now we can mount a shared network folder in your Users Movies folder to access remote network shares. First, on your remote computer, make sure you share the folder containing the video files you wish to watch. Then... mkdir /Volumes/volume_name/Users/your_username/Movies/new_folder Use this command to create a new folder in your users Movie folder. mount -t smbfs //ip_of_shared_computer/shared_folder /Volumes/volume_name/Users/your_username/Movies/new_folder This will mount the network share to your users Movie folder and will now be accessable from atv. As always, us at your own risk...
