  1. I feel good  :thumbsup_anim: but..., is still need to manually edit SMBios.plist for 07/27/2017 datas, and is Chameleon Wizard.app uptodate? Thanks.

    Relate to Chameleon Wizard... If the provided data are not updates I can't do to much (I mean nothing...)


    The embedded value provided by the bootloader are very old (2014 If I remember correctly)

    and the code need a "huge" update will be a good option "port" the Clover SMBios function...


    And other story is... the values provided by the smbios.plist are correctly readed?




    I've been away so thanks for waiting. Here you are.

    Well done for having a go Hervé. For ref, the font is Lucida Grande Bold. However, the icons are generated in Cinema4D so it would be difficult to get a decent match other software.



    Thx guys.

    Perfect! blackosx!


    I upload it to the svn.... I'm going to rename it from xxx_hsie_xxx to xxx_hsi_xxx (I already wrote and commited the code in this way)



  3. Ciao ErmaC....è un onore per noi



    Quando riesco é sempre un piacere passare nella sezione Italiana... nostalgia :P

    anche se non é necessario qui siete in ottime mani.


    Approfitto per rinnovare il saluto a tutti gli utenti della sezione Italiana e sopratutto allo staff che svolgono un lavoro impressionante.




  4. Dai su su...non è difficile... basta applicarsi un po'... :lol:


    salvi, riavvii e controlli...ecc...ecc.....



    PS si puó fare anche direttamente dalla GUI di Clover... ed ancora piú rapido far le prove e trovare il giusto layout-id



  5. I don't have details for the font and or text projection details on the HDD icons; I'm afraid all HSi logos I make therefore differ from existing ones, so it does not look good.  :(


    No problem Hervé... let's see if blackosx can create it...


    ps: I don't see major problem with the 2885 test version... (the APFS is other story)...

    I'm going to update the svn and the pre-build package.. soon..



  6. As already mentioned by crazybirdy the main trunk don't have Kexts and Kernel patcher,


    Also other changes like:

    - embedded FakeSMC

    - new ati IDs and chipset definition

    - new nvidia IDs

    - device detection for Hight Sierra. (GUI)


    PS: the High Sierra default icons are still not available... (iDeviceHFS_hsi, iDeviceHFS_hsi_o) the code is ready... but the .png not

    (device_hfsfusion_hsi_o.png device_hfsfusion_hsi.png)




  7. APFS is not supported by Chameleon/Enoch to date. But I'm sure it'll come soon.


    I can't do to much for the new filesystem... until the source will be available/released... or some reverse (I'm not able to do that)



  8. Hey guys,


    Every time I open the Build_Clover 4.5.0.command and when I select option two the clover gets updated but the EDK2 stays the same (24552) and it won't get updated. Is that normal?


    EDK2 Remote revision: 24858 Local revision: 24552


    Yes is normal, and need to be as is.

    Better say it is as is by default.


    When the proper changes at source code will be made for sync EDK2 changes then also the base revision will be update (with a new version of Buil_Clover script)




  9. There is a typo in the ../Platform/Settings.c file
    line 5628

                } else if (AsciiStrStr (Prop->string, "Install%20macOS%20%High20Sierra") || AsciiStrStr (Prop->string, "Install%20macOS%2010.13")) {

                } else if (AsciiStrStr (Prop->string, "Install%20macOS%20High%20Sierra") || AsciiStrStr (Prop->string, "Install%20macOS%2010.13")) {

  10. ... files attached below.  :)


    Pls remove Resolution Module from Extra/module folder

    and also remove DSDT key from o.c.B.p




    no extras modules are needed for your config (I think...) more than FileNVRAM for NVRAM business...


    post the new log.



  11. Pre-packed PKG are available in the download section.


    Chameleon --> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/59-chameleon-24-svn/

    Enoch --> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/71-enoch/


    Note: those revision are exactly the same version that you can build by yourself, done by downloading and build it with the source code from official svn repository.


    Note2: Chameleon support all OS X version from 10.4 to 10.12  (Yosemite, El Capitan and Sierra included!)..

    (other functionality ...like patching on-fly are only available for Enoch)


    Note3: Enoch support all the OS X version (until Sierra) and also can patch: kernel and kexts on-fly, also Enoch have an embedded FakeSMC.kext (in the case you missed it ;)) and iMessage FaceTime feature are available thanks to new module FileNVRAM (still under test)

    all these changes and credits go to Micky1979.



     a tiny recap: from bootHelp.txt



    The boot: prompt waits for you to type advanced startup options.
    If you don't type anything, the computer continues starting up normally. It
    uses the kernel and configuration files on the startup device, which it also
    uses as the root device.
    Advanced startup options use the following syntax:
        [device]<kernel> [arguments]
    Example arguments include
     device: rd=<BSD device name>       (e.g. rd=disk0s2)
             rd=*<IODeviceTree path>    (e.g. rd=*/PCI0@0/CHN0@0/@0:1)
     kernel: kernel name                (e.g. "mach_kernel" - must be in "/" )
     flags: -v (verbose),                -s (single user mode),
            -x (safe mode),              -f (ignore caches),
            -F (ignore "Kernel Flags" specified in boot configuration file)
     "Graphics Mode"="WIDTHxHEIGHTxDEPTH" (e.g. "1024x768x32")
     kernel flags                       (e.g. debug=0x144)
     io=0xffffffff                      (defined in IOKit/IOKitDebug.h)
    Example: mach_kernel rd=disk0s1 -v "Graphics Mode"="1920x1200x32"
    If the computer won't start up properly, you may be able to start it up using
    safe mode.  Type -x to start up in safe mode, which ignores all cached
    driver files.
    Special booter hotkeys:
      F5            Rescans optical drive.
      F10           Scans and displays all BIOS accessible drives.
    Special booter commands:
      ?memory       Displays information about the computer's memory.
      ?video        Displays VESA video modes supported by the computer's BIOS.
      ?norescan     Leaves optical drive rescan mode.
    Additional useful command-line options:
