  1. Hello vit9696, If you see this, thanks for your awesome work! I appreciate what you and all the other users have done to contribute to this project. I do have one small question, born of my own ignorance. I use the nVidia webdrivers since I have a Maxwell card, and in your FAQ it's stated "NVIDIA drivers do not properly add these values necessary for VDA decoding for Maxwell GPUs in their Web drivers. You could add them with a plist-only kext. The correct values for VP4 GPUs are:" Since I am a bit unfamiliar with creating kexts, I do have to ask what that might entail. If someone else might know how to do this I'd also greatly appreciate it. My questions would be what should go into the Info.plist in the supposed custom kext, and what to call the kext. I'd also need some guidance on how to make the kext apply its values to my Maxwell, ie linking it. Is that in the deviceid? I tried adding the IOVARendererID and IOVARendererSubID values with an <integer> string to my existing NVDAGM100HalWeb.kext info.plist and that just causes a KP during the bootup. Granted, I only tried that because I didn't know that would cause a crash. Thanks in advance to anyone with the know-how to do this or could point me the right direction creating a plist-only kext that affects my Maxwell card.
  2. Help with BCM94360CD Bluetooth

    I got a Fenvi board that was suppose to be a genuine board, but it was not. It had the device id 0a5c. Using the bluetooth kext and then adding the Clover injector worked. I had to also sign out/sign back into iCloud to get Handoff working.
  3. Gigabyte z87x ud5h F9 bios DSDT

    I tried applying some patches but I ended up getting KP's. I'm wondering if someone could take a look at my naked dsdt and let me know what needs patched or patch it for me? I wanted to use Pjalm's patch repo for this board but after the F7 bios they changed a lot on how the DSDT drops. Applying those patches results in KP or compilation errors. My specs are: 4771k not oc'd GTX 780 16gb RAM 480GB Sandisk Extreme Pro Realtek ALC 898 Thanks for your time, I greatly appreciate it. dsdt.zip
  4. iTunes 12.x No video playback?

    I'd love to know what your clover settings are.
  5. iTunes 12.x No video playback?

    I'm curious, really, but what kind of motherboard and CPU do you use?
  6. iTunes ( BLACK SCREEN ) problem

    It's not HDCP, it's nothing at all, whatsoever, to do with HDCP. If it was HDCP there would be an HDCP error, the prevailing theory noted in other forums is rather DPCP or some function Apple has included to specifically stop Hacks from being able to play DRM encoded movies from iTunes. It's all guesswork, for all we know, and developers haven't really expressed an interest in developing a fix as far as I can tell. It's perplexing given the high quality of engineering and development that's gone into things like Clover, Chameleon, and the plethora of kexts patched and developed by some highly talented individuals that's taken OSx86 as far as it has come. To see this issue either ignored or unsolvable (can't tell which) is confusing.
  7. iTunes ( BLACK SCREEN ) problem

    I'm gonna guess that you've got either a Haswell or Ivy Bridge based system. If anyone else has any suggestions I have the same problem and would love any fix that may have gone un-noticed.
  8. Gigabyte Z77-DS3H + Clover

    I agree, on Windows it works, so I end up spending most of my time in Windows. It completely undermines, for me at least, having a Hackintosh. I may as well run Linux. Without the iTunes tie-in I'm driven back to Windows or to a real Mac. I've seen your posts in other areas too, not a single developer has acknowledged this problem nor has any of the major devs even indicated looking into it. I've considered starting a bounty, but, one of the problems I think is that so many people just haven't jumped to a Haswell CPU yet so many people are content. This problem will expand as people change CPU's, so, I'm just as surprised as you are.
  9. Gigabyte Z77-DS3H + Clover

    Sadly I also saw this, looked into it, and was let down. When I attempt to run an iTunes DRM video I still get the ol "AVF error: AVF_VirtualAcceleratorCreate: fail to create QT accelerator" error in the log. When I run VDADecoder Checker I don't get the error, tried Enoch as well.
  10. AGPM problem with MSI Nvidia GTX 570 on ML 10.8.3

    Have you added your deviceid to the agpm.kext? http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-lion-desktop-support/63574-nvidia-fermi-agpm-power-management-mountain-lion.html
  11. MSI Big Bang xPower

    Been a while since getting this build up and running. I've enjoyed a very stable setup since these posts. I'm running Mountain Lion now and had to make a change, due to the 64-bit-ness of ML people need to use a different patch on AppleRTC.kext in order for sleep/wake to work. It requires sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x30\x89\xd8|\xEB\x30\x89\xd8|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC Then of course delete/rebuild your caches and your sleep function should work again as normal.
  12. Slow OpenGL on Fermi (GF110)?

    I've troubleshooted away the possibility of it using a software renderer, but yeah those scores are awful for a 560ti by comparison to the 9800. I'm not using an EFI string, but I'm using the vendor id, netkas OpenCL hack, and graphicsenabler. I'm wondering about clockspeed too. When I was in the agpm.kext I was wondering what the 87 number was for. I copied and pasted it from another vendor id and I'm wondering if those are somehow a reference to clockspeeds??? I'm just not sure how it works just yet.
  13. Slow OpenGL on Fermi (GF110)?

    I've been enjoying my GTX 570 working pretty well in Lion, there are a few issues though, primarily being slow OpenGL performance. In Cinebench I get about 30fps, yet when I got to Windows and run the benchmark I'm seeing 48fps. I also notice slow performance in games like WoW and SC2. Seems like the driver may be immature, but I figured I'd ask someone to corroborate these types of results, maybe I'm also missing something. I have QE/CL running well and I highly doubt its running OpenGL in software, the GPU is doing some work, it just seems hamstrung. I suspect just immature driver because of the sleep bug also. Whenever waking from S3 sleep OpenGL quits working. QE/CL seems ok, just the 3D not working.
  14. MSI Big Bang xPower

    Hey sorry it took so long to respond I've actually switched my DSDT to Mald0n's DSDT. He made a few patches and pointed a few things out that have really helped me out. You might try his out.
  15. MSI Big Bang xPower

    I worked out the sleep issues in another thread, but I'll paste what ultimately fixed the problem as well as my DSDT. It would seem that the OP's DSDT info is a bit dated in lieu of Lion. My system is currently %100 stable and SATA 6GB/s is working in Lion! S3 sleep is now working! Fans shut down, LED's go off, yet ram stays powered. It's not %100 perfect, it's just %99 there. The only idiosyncrasy present is that I have to hit the power button twice. It's more like I can hit the power button now to sleep it (that's another fix) but when waking I hit the power button, then hit it again about 3 seconds later and it wakes from sleep. Or, I can just tap the spacebar on my keyboard and it wakes that way too. The fix entails, for one having a proper DSDT. MSI Big Bang Xpower owners really should create one specific and I may release some patches for it in the guides section. I also applied this fix http://tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&am...27&start=10 rather specifically this code pasted into the terminal sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x8b\x45\xc8\x39\x45\xcc\x74\x0b|\x8b\x45\xc8\x39\x45\xcc\xeb\x0b|; s|\x8b\x45\xb4\x39\x45\xb8\x74\x08|\x8b\x45\xb4\x39\x45\xb8\xeb\x08|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC In my DSDT to get the power button working I had to change Device (PWRB) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0C0C")) Name (_UID, 0xAA) Name (_STA, 0x0B) } } I changed _HID to _CID DSDT.aml.zip
