    Clover problems report & features request

    Thank you for the suggestion but that's not the issue there: the log returns that error because I emptied my Other folder for that test (that is, WhateverGreen wasn't physically there anymore); it loads just fine, with the other ones, if I leave them in Other. Well, the "one" who told me, corroborated by a couple other devs, is a guide on the site of the one who shall not be named (but is active in the developers' corner): can't link anything because I don't want a ban, but I trust him deeply, and most of the times his guides and advice are a step ahead of everyone else's. Anyway, adding what Slice said to the mix, if I were in your shoes I'd either remove the functionality or fix it: it's going to be confusing for new users who won't be able to wrap their head around it, and old ones like me will keep believing it's a forgotten bug. Besides, if what has been said about injecting kexts is true, is there a master list of kexts that need injection and kext who do not? Because GitHub pages never mention anything of the sort.

    Clover problems report & features request

    Hi, I believe both No and Detect option for Inject Kexts are, once again, broken in Clover. While trying to improve my boot time, I took a look at my debug.log; I found out that, despite the fact that I've always used Detect (given that I place any extra kexts in Library/Extensions), Clover keeps loading them from the Other folder. I then tried No instead of Detect, but the result is the same (with the exception that Clover skips kext injection... only to inject them just a line later). I can't track back the version that re-introduced the bug, but it's been the case for at least the current release and the previous one, and I'm sure there's nothing wrong with my configuration (my config.plist is quite spartan and I checked it out for possible conflicts). Besides, even if there were severe issues related to my kext cache (that Clover should read in order to detect FakeSMC), Inject Kexts=No should do its work in any given condition. Last but not least, RehabMan already found out such a bug in an older Clover version, that's why I believe the feature still needs some refinement. Here's a sample. To try and narrow down the issue, for this debug boot I deleted every kext in Other and set "No" for Inject Kexts. But as you can see, Clover keeps trying to inject kexts. When I actually leave some kexts in Other, they end up loading just fine (redundantly and pointlessly). skipping kext injection (not requested) 10:358 0:010 Use origin smbios table type 1 guid. 10:374 0:015 Preparing kexts injection for arch=x86_64 from EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other 10:380 0:006 Extra kext: EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\WhateverGreen.kext (v.1.2.6) 10:389 0:008 Failed to load extra kext (Info.plist not found): EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\WhateverGreen.kext I hope this'll be useful.
  3. It was just a matter of time. As the OP pointed out, the Mac App Store is all but dead because of strict policies applied by Apple and the little to nothing incentives to bring applications on the store (there's a lot of professional software, or just renowned software, that should definitely be on the MAS). Besides, there a few apps (especially games) that are already sort of "universal", GUI-wise. This is why Apple should absolutely save the MAS and make it a great store where trusted and/or longtime developers can publish their apps (why isn't Opera there? Why not the Arturia and Korg synths? And so on). I add that both free and opensource apps should be allowed for free. Combining this with universal Mac-iOS apps, Apple could success where Microsoft blatantly failed. But Universal apps alone aren't going to help Mac OS.

    BoardSerialNumber showing (null)

    Sorry if I resurrect the thread but I got the same problem, is there a solution yet? I followed the RT variables method.

    Enable TRIM on non-Apple SSD

    Ok, grazie comunque. In ogni caso il tuo metodo di sicura funziona, il kext per l'AHCI l'ho patchato: sono certo che, riconosciuto il chipset, starò a posto.

    Enable TRIM on non-Apple SSD

    Sì, ma continua a non funzionare. Non è che mi preoccupo del nome, è che non mi dice nemmeno chipset sconosciuto: noto che su altri sistemi appare almeno questo. Sono abbastanza certo che finché non riconoscerà il chipset non riconoscerà nemmeno un SSD, continuando a trattarlo come un normale drive, perché semplicemente manca la voce "TRIM=Sì/No".

    Enable TRIM on non-Apple SSD

    Ecco! Mi mancava proprio questo kext. Purtroppo non è cambiato nulla installandolo. Mi chiedo quale possa essere il problema.

    Enable TRIM on non-Apple SSD

    Come preferisci. Uso Chameleon, ho provato inizialmente il quarto metodo, non ha funzionato (addirittura mi diceva che il kext non era utilizzabile, pur avendolo installa con Kext Helper ed avendo ricostruito la cache), dopodiché ho provato il secondo, altrettanto inutile. Mi chiedo piuttosto perché in Sistema non riconosca il chipset (come vedo in altri screenshot) né riesca a vederlo come SSD. Mi manca un kext? Solo ora ci faccio caso, e questo SSD lo uso da almeno un anno. Al riguardo, vedo che è comune al Pandora team l'odio per la lingua di Shakespeare Infatti sto traducendo daccapo Pandora, perché mi fa piacere dare una mano e perché Miky è stato sempre gentilissimo e paziente con me. E già che ci sono, complimenti per il tool, semplicemente geniale e user-friendly.

    Enable TRIM on non-Apple SSD

    I patched the original IOAHCI kext, but my hackintosh keeps not recognizing my SSD at all, as it was a mere HDD. Any idea how to solve this? Here is a screenshot. Until now, I had been using Chameleon SSD, which stopped working after 10.10.2 upgrade.
  10. That's strange. My Trust dongle does survive several stops, but hardly a reboot. I think that some dongles are Mac-ready (maybe yours), others are supposed to work only with Windows (as mine).

    New Yosemite dark boot logo

    For the last time, I do use CHAMELEON, and yes, I tried, but the progress bar you refer to is actually used in the drives selection screen, not during the actual boot (and that's why I had to modify the boot file located in the root of my drive with a terminal command to make the screen black). Also, the loading bar is white, not black, as you can see from the picture I posted. Anyway, if you want the real new boot screen, there's a specific command for Clover, you can find in the link provided by jamiethemorris.

    can we get back the apple logo on boot?

    Clover thread? Ok, I read it as "you should really try to use Clover, my friend". I think I'll do so (while trying to obtain a perfect configuration as on Chameleon), mainly because there's a specific boot flag in Clover to enable the new dark bootscreen. Thanks for your help.

    can we get back the apple logo on boot?

    Well, I'm trying to obtain the new boot screen with Chameleon (I hate Clover, it caused problems for my hackintosh when I tried it...). All I could do was changing the background color manually (via this command cd / sudo perl -pi.bak -e 's;\xff\xff\xff\xbf\xbf\xbf;\xff\xff\xff\x00\x00\x00;g' boot ) and changing and unstretching a white Apple logo through a Chameleon theme. But I cannot figure out how to recolor the progress bar: I'm pretty sure we have to work on /boot file. Any ideas? By the way, Clover reads boot.efi in CoreServices, Chameleon draws the bootscreen manually.

    What about Chameleon?

    New Yosemite dark boot logo

    Ok, I manually changed the background to make it all black, via this command: cd / sudo perl -pi.bak -e 's;\xff\xff\xff\xbf\xbf\xbf;\xff\xff\xff\x00\x00\x00;g' boot I also changed the Apple logo via a Chameleon theme, to make it white. Now the only thing to be adjusted is the loading bar: how can I make it white? Changing it in Chameleon has no effects.
