    nmano reacted to zisqo for a file, Catalina 10.15(15A983) Disable SIP   
    hi i'm zisqo, who's naughty at InsanelyMac discord channel.
    writing Korean manuals for the opencore bootloader and spreading the guide to Korea.
    btw this application will be easy to disable SIP, but just once at one time. (enabled SIP if reboot)
     
    1. run Disable SIP application
    2. allow terminal control
    3. enter your system password
    4. now you can add / delete / modify files at S/L/E and L/E on Read Only APFS Partition
     
    have good luck.

    nmano reacted to crazybirdy for a file, Catalina MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch   
    Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR HFS+ partition.
     
    Please read Readme-10.15.pdf first.
     
    How to finish the Catalina installation.
    1. Use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make USB Catalina Installer.
    2. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Disk Utility, format as MBR HFS+. 
        Install Catalina to blank MBR HFS+ "Target" partition.
    3. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Terminal, run the script command:
        copytempdata
    4. Boot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition on single user mode (-s), run the script command:
        hfsupdatecache
    5. Reboot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition, setup user name and login, finish the installation.
     
    Also, you need to setup Clover as BooterConfig=0x28, CsrActiveConfig=0x67
     
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    List of known issues:
    1. Some app-pkg-installers can't install to HFS+, but install to APFS fine.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
    1. Pass the MBR check, allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR partition.
    2. Pass the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
    3. Pass auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.15.
    4. This MBR-Manual-Method will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition.
    5. This MBR-Manual-Method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery).
    No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
     
    What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method?
    As the following....
    1. createinstallmedia method,
        needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format.
    2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12),
        install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR HFS+ and GUID HFS+, will never convert the partition format.
        We can manually format as MBR HFS+ or GPT HFS+ on installation screen like as 10.12.
        We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 on installation screen now.
        Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 future versions, I think so.
        It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version.
    3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+),
        End of MBR and HFS+, there is no more MBR HFS+ patch available for 10.15 native OSInstaller.

    How to make 10.15 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?
    Just use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
    Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.
    Read HowTo Q/A Q4. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave, Catalina?
    Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
    Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to update 10.15.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
     
    And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
     

     
    Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
    A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

    nmano reacted to Micky1979 for a file, InsanelyRepairPermission   
    InsanelyRepairPermission is a command line that is able to repair kexts permissions in the current Volume or other Volumes as you wish.
     
    It repair kexts permission for:
     
    /Extra/KPKexts (since v1.1)
    /Extra/Extensions
    /System/Library/Extensions
    /Library/Extensions
     
     
    Usage (new version 1.1)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    to verify:
    sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -v /Volumes/Your Volume (or simply /)
     
    to repair:
    sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -r /Volumes/Your Volume
     
    to repair and touch (will cause the kernelcache/prelinked to be rebuilt):
    sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -rt /Volumes/Your Volume
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Usage (version 1.0)
     
     
    repairs only files that have incorrect permissions, if they are ok tells you that there are no files to be repaired.
     
    NOTE:
    In El Capitan you should need to boot with SIP disabled or a permissive CSR config

    nmano reacted to Arslan2012 for a file, Hackintosh Custom Installer Generator   
    What is this?
    This automation app generates Hackintosh installer from original Mackintosh Installer app/disk image.

    Why do I need this?
    If you are on a computer that does not support UEFI.
    If you have hardwares on you computer that causes original installation image kernel panic.
    If you have less than 2GB RAM.
    If you are just too lazy to read the tutorial and install the original.

    you'll need this app to alter the original installation image.
    How does this work
    Just drag the app/dmg file onto the image icon, click start and enjoy.
    >>If you use Chameleon Bootloader, you can also drop your Chameleon Extra folder onto the app. App then will make this a Chameleon bootable image.
    You're a dev?
    my code is a mess, feel free to report an issue, or open up a pull request.

    If you have a fix for a CC application that isn't supported by this then send me a PM and I'll include it.

    nmano reacted to Cyberdevs for a file, iMessage Fixer   
    iMessage Fixer is an application which helps you to completely reset your iMessage and FaceTime settings. This app will remove all the preferences related to iMessage and iCloud account from your system and it will also remove the NetworkInterface preferences from your system, so please use with caution. If you are having activation issues with iMessage, this application is not the answer but if you already activated iMessage on your Mac or Hack and the Messages is acting up you can use this app to fix it.
     
    Your iMessage history will be erased and you might need to sing back in in iMessage and FaceTime.
     
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    This is a quick guide on how to fix iMessage/Messages and FaceTime:
    There are other issues that can result in imessage/Messages and FaceTime not working properly like using a blacklisted Serial Number or MLB or SmUUID or simply an unactivated AppleID. If that's the case you need to use Clover Configurator 5.2.0.1 (or newer version) to rebuild your SMBIOS data with the most updated details like shown in the picture below:
     

     
    All you have to do is to select the SMBIOS section and then form the SMBIOS selector choose the most compatible SMBIOS with your hardware:
     

     
    Then you need to select the RtVariable section to generate the MLB based on your SMBIOS data and then just click the Generate button next to ROM to automatically generate the MLB and ROM ID based on your SMBIOS and then copy/paste the MLB from the newly generated info into the MLB box next to the ROM filed. Save your new config.plist
     

     
    Once you did the steps above and save the config, close Clover Configurator and the run the iMessage Fixer app and then reboot the computer, once macOS is loaded, login into iMessage or Messages using your AppleID and hopefully you can activate your iMessage and FaceTime.

    Important Note:
    If you already signed in AppStore or iCloud using your current config.plist you might need to remove that device from iCloud in order to prevent the Account Lock Up by Apple because once you change the Serial Number, MLB and SmUUID Apple's server will lock your account in order to protect your data and you need to rest the password for your AppleID.

    I hope you find this helpful.
    Cheers

    Micky1979 and Mirone are glad to present you a new version of AppleHDA Patcher.app that will help you enabling sound on your Hack!
     
    AppleHDA Patcher v1.9
    http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=6528
     
    AppleHDA Patcher, Jarvis ready
    funny? Well, born for fun joking with Mirone about some adventures patching AppleHDA.kext.
    Anyway Jarvis is there!
    --> Troubleshotting:
     
     
    1- You don't need to have separate patches, now they are implemented within the app, just choose Desktop's or Laptop's.
     
    2- Is it possible to patch AppleHDA.kext for different OS X versions, he supports all kexts from 10.7 up to 10.11 (and newer), or by default use the one in /System/Library/Extensions as base for the patches without drag anything.
     
    3- You can create kexts through its patched files (Platforms.xml, LayoutX.xml, Info.plist for AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext )
    drag all of your files, choose or type the codec to patch the binary. The process automatically start.
     
    4- Is automatically created a full patched AppleHDA.kext + HDAEnabler.kext to be used with all bootloaders, an aDummyHDA.kext and a config.plist *sample (to be used with Clover), an HDEF patch to be used with MaciASL ready with the correct layout-id (in case you chose to patch laptops also an IRQ patch will be generated), and also you will find usefull the CodecCommander.kext + hda-verbs by Rehabman forks.
    All files will be placed inside ~/Desktop/MironeAudio, just choose what you need.
     
    5- for all steps 1, 2 and 3 you can also drag to the app interface your real config.plist to be edited where necessary.
     
    6- The application is able to make corrections remotely updating itself when and if necessary.
     
    NOTE:
    The app produces various files, off course you do not have to use them all:
     
    Use aDummyHDA.kext + edited config.plist for Clover (Ozmosis works similar)
    For all other bootloader use the full patched AppleHDA.kext (+ HDAEnabler.kext or DSDT edits... not both).
    Use CodecCommander.kext if the sound does not work after the sleep (wake), read more here.
    aDummyHDA.kext goes in /System/Library/Extensions
     
    Italiano:
     
     
     
     
    Works in 10.7+

    nmano reacted to fusion71au for a file, AppleAHCIPort.kext   
    AppleAHCIPort.kext v328 from High Sierra PB1_17A291m.
     
    Info.plist has been edited so Bundle version is 999.1.1 ---> give higher priority loading in kernel cache/pre-linked kernel than v329 from later betas/GM. Need to disable SIP (since editing info.plist invalidates Apple's kext signature).
     
    Install in /Library/Extensions (so doesn't get over-written during updates) repair permissions, rebuild caches eg
    sudo chown -R 0:0 /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext && sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /   Test kext is loadable...
    sudo kextutil -tn /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext   Confirm kext is loaded after rebooting the system...
    kextstat | grep AHCIPort   To use with a USB installer, the kext needs to be included in the prelinkedkernel. Use PLK.tool attached to post#13 to create a new prelinkedkernel with AppleAHCIPort.kext v328, then replace original prelinkedkernel in the installer - post#16.
