  1. Location of wifi-icon resources?

    Thanks, but that still does not answer my question. I'm still curious where the original files are hiding in MacOS.
  2. Where in MacOS can I find the graphical resources for the top menu wifi icon? I am looking to use them to customize the software for my TP-Link USB adapter for a more vanilla look but I can not find them.
  3. Sorry MaLd0n, the patch and battery WAS working. I saw them in the ioreg, it was only that the menu icon had somehow got disabled. I had to go to '/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras' and click 'Battery.menu' to get it to show. Thank you so much for the help! Now I will just see if I can adjust the speedstepping of the CPU on my own so I can get some lower idle freqs. I will buy you a beer when my paycheck show up in a weeks time
  4. Sorry, but what do you mean "battery, just apply and compile"? The attached file is the already compiled dsdt.aml. Did you patch it already, or did you mean to include the uncompiled dsl? When I use the attached dsdt still no battery icon. And if I decompile it to apply the patch I get error when I try to recompile it.
  5. Yes I did not have X86PlatformPlugin loaded, but the CPU did alot of stepping anyway. I have no idea how it worked, but is that normal? You can see from output here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ts47pe7egdxc84r/HWE-enabled.txt?dl=0 Here is the new ioreg: https://www.dropbox.com/s/74hrb8kteeo1j5f/Andreas%20Hackintosh_new.ioreg?dl=0 If you could also please patch the DSDT with Rehabman's batterypatch for S55SL/Vivobook that would be awesome. Missing battery display at the moment. Thank you!
  6. The system settings says it is 20 series. The power management is not working as it used to. Now I have "CPU P-States [ 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 23 24 25 26 (31) ]" reported by AppleIntelInfo.kext. I used to have "CPU P-States [ 4 7 (8) 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 ]". The lower states under 13 seem to all be missing. Is this because you put FakeCPUID in the config.plist? What would be the damage of not using FakeCPUID?
  7. Hello MaLd0n. I was hoping you could help me out with my DSDT. I have tried on my own but not succeeded 100%. Hardware: Asus F556UA-DM805T (laptop) Intel Core i5-7200U (Kaby Lake) Intel HD 620 · 8GB DDR4 RAM 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD MacOS 10.12 https://www.dropbox.com/s/mjkaud2vyuaekby/Send%20me%20Andreas%20Hackintosh.zip?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/mptmydlyptz42lr/Andreas%20Hackintosh.ioreg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/vwhjwgs8nghsiud/CLOVER.zip?dl=0 If you could tell me what patches you used and also give me the patched/unpatched dsl-files (for learning purposes) that would be awesome Also if I have any strange settings in my config.plist please tell me. Thank you!
  8. What I'm wondering is if it would be possible to make a Clover based Installer USB with both OSX 10.11 and Win 10 on the same USB drive. Have anyone tried? I'm thinking this should be possible since you can dual boot the normal systems using Clover so you should also be able to do the same to the installers from a USB. If anyone have instructions I would love to see them. If not I might start experimenting soon when I get my new laptop...
  9. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    Excuse me for being a total n00b about this, but if I patch my BIOS of my ASUS k53sc for use of native AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext do I still need to have SSDT in /Extra? And what settings should I have in org.chameleon.Boot.plist for this to work (GeneratePStates and GenerateCStates)?

    1. You can download the Lion installation file in Snow Leopard and then proceed to make a bootable USB from that to keep the Snow Leopard install. You still have to pay for Lion of course, otherwise you would break the law... 2. That depends on how you have partitioned your disk to begin with. If you go with the default partitioning type, MBR, you can't install OS X straight away. You have to install OS X to a GUID partitioned disk and then clone the install to your MBR partitioned disk. There are workarounds but you'll have to find them yourself. 3. I boot Win7, OS X Lion and Ubuntu 11.04 from the same drive, so yes it will load. You have to install grub to your linux-partition for it to boot though and it has to be installed to EXT3 since the bootloader (chameleon or chimera preferebly) cannot read EXT4 yet. 4. It is always preferred to image your important partitions to another drive. For you especially since you don't have any backup installation discs of your Windows. 5. You can do this with OS X also. But you need OS X 10.6+ to do this. See here.

    The boot1h file is inside of the i386 file wich you either get by unpacking the chameleon/chimera .pkg or compiling them from their sourcecode. You can find more about doing this if you google it. I've already tried it though and for me it seems to be a no go. As far as I can see the boot1h seems to have stuck to the drive but simply won't load properly. If you'd like to I can upload the extracted folder here for you to try. On another note... I have an Asus K53SC which have a blue USB 3.0 port wich I can't get working in OSX. OSX Immediatly shuts it down at boot because it uses too much power. I believe this is caused by it supporting Asus "Ai Charging" feature for faster charging of the iPhone for example. Anyone have any fixes for this?

    No, you can't do something like that. Sector size is set in the hardware and you can't change it. You can read more about it here: Western Digital’s Advanced Format: The 4K Sector Transition Begins 4K Sector Hard Drive Primer Are you ready for 4k sector drives? All you can do is wait for someone to fix this in the chameleon sourcecode, it seems. Some people say they have managed to install it manually in safe mode, but I have tried in every way and never got it working.
  13. Asus K53sv-sx063v

    It says in the description that it uses "Advanced Format: The "512e" that the stats show means that it is only emulating 512 byte sectors. So it appears to be the 4k sector bug you are experiencing.
  14. Asus K53sv-sx063v

    What brand is the harddrive? Do you know what size of sectors it has? Older HDD's have a sector of 512 byte while many newer and bigger drives have a sector of 4096 byte (4k). Chameleon (and other bootloaders made from it such as Chimera) have trouble installing to these drives because of the new sector size. See here. I have an Asus K53SC wich has a 500 GB Western Digital wich is affected by this. I have had to install Chimera to a USB memorystick and set the computer to boot from that instead until someone fixes this problem in the chameleon sourcecode. I recommend getting something tiny like the Verbatim Store N Go wich I use. I'm not sure that is your problem for sure, but it sounds like it could be.
