  1. New AppleHDA Patcher

    I can also confirm that v1.2 is working (again). Used it on my ALC271 and it generates the same Clover config.plist and a working aDummy.kext. Copied over and everything is fine. Good (and fast) work, Micky
  2. New AppleHDA Patcher

    I thought disabling Azalia was something mandatory... And codec Commander usage is optional (at least for me, cause i do not need it). P.S.: Thx Allan for the Spoiler tags...
  3. New AppleHDA Patcher

    Yep, cannot get to create a working patch for ALC271 (codec 269 on mobile) with the "new" AppleHDA from 10.11.4 too. It generates the whole output, a different patch file for Clover (which is strange). I think I should take a look into the kext to see what has happened... Soooo, I took a look at the files generated and guess what: The solution was simple (at least for me using Clover). - generated aDummyHDA.kext is okay. - generated config.plist for Clover is wrong, Micky1979. I simply used my "old" config.plist patch and copied the new aDummyHDA.kext over. This is working fine. I wouldn't get a sound with the newly generated config.plist. Old working config.plist contains: the newly created one (which did not work) contained: I marked the failing strings red... But I cannot point out why and what has happened...
  4. Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

    Hi Micky and good morning. Well, tested a few configs, which means: - removing all Intel kexts & try booting - removing all nvidia kexts together with Intel kexts & try booting - removing all Intel injection from org.chameleon.boot.plist & my DSDT - all of the above together ... the answer is still: no. I just do not get it... Clover boots fine without the kexts for Intel and shows 7MB VRAM (and of course no QE/QI) Strange, but i am currently on 10.10 with the same config as for 10.11 and all is working fine (like with clover on 10.11) I noticed one very interesting thing: My mobo needed genericUSBXHCI to get the USB3 working under 10.x to 10.10. Of course i removed it under 10.11. I used Rehabmans FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext to get at least the ports working (without a kext they never would). This way I get 3 of 4 Ports working. The USB2 port with the webcam connected doesn't show up at all under 10.11, even with booting via clover. Aehm, I removed it today during the tests (like any other third party extension) and noticed that the system doesn't to boot up and locks at a very early stage ("AppleUSBLegacySupport" or something). So the question for is now: If it is not the graphics and totally not related to ENOCH, could it be the USB that is blocking the startup sequence? Did I blame Chameleon & Enoch for something that is not related to them? - Clover patches the USB controllers by itself at boot... So I might be a bummer that never got his DSDT right and is in the wrong thread.

    Small update at night, hehe... The wife is asleep... Tested Pike's suggestion, but the same. In my opinion it is not the SIP. Clover boots with the same setting (0x67). Changed the kext from 10.11.1 Intel drivers to the ones from 10.10.5, but still no success.
  6. Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

    not the latest one from 10.11.1 ...will test Pikers suggestion with 128... .. and log off for tonight. The wife is getting ichty :-)
  7. Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

    Yep, it is in there... but it semms that noone ever managed to do it properly. I know the pain and I have the "regular" bios installed again. Apart from that: I test your suggestion and... NO... it still stucks at the point where it should switch to the graphical part. Damn, I never experienced this before. (Oh, and i cleaned up, of course. Web drivers are gone ) Another guess?
  8. Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

    Hi Micky, will try in a minute. As for your questions... Patched BIOS a few months ago to disable the intel and activate the nvidia by default... and yes, I never changed the flags afterwards... :-) So for your question: Yes, the nvidia works, even with web drivers with the "correct" BIOS. But that was months ago. For the injection of both, the id and the buffer: Well, was on Chameleon before, so no "IntelCapriFb" there. I know, I am lazy by not deleting all of this, but... well, it worked before. Will be right back in a minute after testing. (.. and yeah, of course I have the kernel.plist already in Extra)

    Hi Micky, that is what i thought too. But i did not change a thing since 10.10.5. I am still using CapriFB 4 for the mobo and skipped the nvidia detection on boot. This always functioned until now. I even tried patching the FramebufferCapri, which is recognized by the system correctly even after booting with clover. Clover injects the same id (01660004), also ignores the nvidia and boots up fine. Last thing i know, i could copy over the Capriframebuffer and rest of the files from 10.10.5, but that isn't a solution... As of writing, I am very close to switching to clover (which i never thought i'll do). Wait! I think i should post the boot.plist... <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>BlackMode</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>103</string> <key>DSDT</key> <string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string> <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(2,2)</string> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EnableBacklight</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EnableDualLink</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EnableHDMIAudio</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EnableWifi</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>HDAEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>HDAULayoutID</key> <string>28000000</string> <key>HDEFLayoutID</key> <string>28000000</string> <key>InjectIntel-ig</key> <string>04006601</string> <key>Instant Menu</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>IntelCapriFB</key> <string>4</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>nvda_drv=1</string> <key>KeyLayout</key> <string>mac-de</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>/Extra/smbios.plist</string> <key>SkipAtiGfx</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SkipNvidiaGfx</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SystemType</key> <string>2</string> <key>UseIntelHDMI</key> <string>Yes</string> Basically this is the same that i was using under 10.10.5 with Enoch and/or Chameleon.
  10. Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

    Hi, after all my reading of the posts in the thread I decided to update to 10.11 using Enoch/Chameleon and not Clover. And guess what? - I ran into a problem. I think I have done all i can to solve it, but I think it might be related to Enoch/Chameleon, because Clover boots up fine for now. As you might see in the picture the boot process goes well until DSMOS arrives and nothing more happens. Using Clover with the same configuration boots fine. same kexts used, but no success. I can boot into single user mode on commandline, but no graphical screen will show up. It doesn't matter what commandline switches are used and in which combination (either with or without caches), the boot process stops. It doesn't even matter if a custom DSDT or SSDT is used or even a custom kext (except for FakeSMC) is installed. So, are there any suggestions? (please... )

    Hi Micky, all good. Anyone can make typo errors. ... I already changed this and built successful. (I wanted to post this this second, but you answered faster than lightning (or myself).

    Well... for the "easy" things: - keymapping: Yeh, I got the same problems and so I decided to reverse the "normal" keyboard-layout by Apple to match my "german" one. I am currenty using ukulele for that. But I think that I cannot help you out here. - USB: Well, I never heard of such a phenomenon, except for Sony phones. My phones (Apple and Samsung) work both fine, including modem support. - HDMI: Yep, It is a pain in the a... on this machine. I think you got to mess around, because the HDMI should be different on your machine than on mine or one of the others (i5, i7, UEFI, etc.) I know that this does not help a lot, but I think it might point you in the right direction for now.

    Hi all, strange enough the installer of v2571 ENOCH installed well (with the default theme), but I got the same problems while booting up BEFORE I used the patched v2530 boot. I installed chameleon v2570 directly to my disks using the installer and it failed to load. Neither did ENOCH v2570. BUT I downloaded v2571 of ENOCH and installed it (first) to a USB Stick including all my files (and the themes). It booted fine since then... even using a custom theme. This did the trick for me. So I installed ENOCH v2571 over v2570 on the disks and the boot went well. Afterwards I downloaded trunk of Chameleon v2570, compiled and installed it over v2571 (using Chameleon Wizard). Since then: Booting does not fail and everything is fine. ...as I am using old themes, the "boot hang" does not seem to come from these themes. The characteristic of the failure was - at least on my machine - similar to my last one (rotating bar or bubble (ENOCH) stops on the black screen).
