  1. This should help you but you need to do some research of your own. https://github.com/IntelRealSense/librealsense
  2. I'm using tplink tl-wn725n. Drivers are directly from their web site supporting MAC OS. It's not a dual band but i don't mind that. Its small and it does connect after boot. I was thinking about to limit the brightness range so that with lowest setting the display wont go off. But as i was reading some posts, it can bring more problems than good. So i will stick with this.
  3. Hi Wen, did you removed AppleHDA.kext from /S/L/E? try to install the voodooHDA.kext directly to /S/L/E. Also here is the updated clover folder. It has dsdt patch to map brightness keys (fn+f2 and fn+f3), added intelbrightness.kext to enable brightness control and clover fix GFX0 to IGPU to enable power management. +edited voodoohda.kext with enabled half volume fix. PS: as always don't forget to add your SN, board SN and uuid. PS2: When you run the mac with updated clover for the first time you will get black screen. That's because your brightness is at lowest value. Just hit fn+f3 and add some brightness. CLOVER.zip

    hdmi working out of the box when using MPB11.2 SMbios. Hearthstone is running at max details
  5. [uPDATE 12/15/2016] added RehabMan's ACPIBatteryManager.kext to the CLOVER.zip file to enable battery monitoring. [uPDATE 12/13/2016] SMBios changed from iMac17.1 to MBP11.2 to enable native HDMI output Working: full resolution with acceleration, hdmi output, sound, mic, webcam, touchpad, keyboard, BT, LAN, imessage, facetime, Siri, battery Not working: wifi, nvidia, sleep What you will need: working mac/hackintosh with Install Sierra app, 8gb USB drive, attached clover zip file, Clover Configurator app, Latest Clover 3961 or newer, kext utility. What you may/may not also need: USB keyboard + USB mouse. (only for install), patience, cup of coffee. Prepare the media 1. Insert your USB to your mac/hack 2. Open disk utility, select USB (click on the USB name, do not click on its partitions) and hit "erase" 3. Leave all default. Name: Untitled, Format: OS Extended Journaled, Scheme: GUID 4. Hit erase. Wait to finish 5. Fire up terminal and paste sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 6. Wait to finish 7. Unzip attached clover file. Open config.plist using Clover configurator. Go to SMBIOS, hit that magic wand, select imac17,1 MBP11.2, shake few times Week of manufacture and Unit number to get serial. UPDATE: use MBP11.2 to get hdmi working OOB 8. Verify that the serial is not used by real mac on checkcoverage.apple.com. You should get "Serial not found" hit ok. 9. Copy serial to Board serial number and add 5 random digits and uppercase letters at the end (C02DSJUTAS56IT9) - this serial is just random generated by my brain do not use it. 10. Open terminal and enter uuidgen 11. Paste the generated uuid to SmUUID 12. Save the config.plist (double check if you saved the file to the CLOVER folder using textedit or reopen the config.plist with Clover Configurator. Check generated data) 13. Install clover, select your USB as install location, hit "Customize" and select "Install for UEFI booting only" and "Install Clover in the ESP", leave everything else as default. Hit install. 14. If your EFI partition did not stay mounted, mount it using Clover configurator. Double check that you mounted the EFI partition from your USB and not the EFI of your current mac/hack. 15. Copy and replace the CLOVER folder inside EFI partition. 16. You should be good to go. Install 1. Boot from USB, select boot drive "Install macos Sierra" 2. The boot to installer can take some time. If you will get stuck at some place for more than 15 minutes something is wrong. Reboot using power button and try it again. 3. Install Sierra. Reboot 4. Boot from USB but now select your installed Sierra drive. This should boot a lot faster. 5. If you booted to Sierra successfully repeat the steps to install Clover and copy over Clover folder to EFI partition. Don't forget to select your Sierra drive now. Post checks and fixes. 1. Connect your network cable to RJ45 slot on the notebook. You should have network connection. Open terminal and hit ifconfig 2. Check if the LAN interface is "en0" (the one with IP address) 3. If not enter to terminal sudo rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist 4. reboot 5. recheck if your LAN is en0 6. reboot 7. try to log in to imessage. You should be prompted with the password. Check your iphone/ipad for the password and enter it. If is all ok (account is not inactive) you should have imessage working. Connect your iphone, transfer contact list and try it. 8. If you don't see all contacts in imessage, that means imessage is still waiting to activation. Try to turn off and on again the imessage service in your iphone. You should get the popup "Would you like to use imessage on this device" Click yes. 9. Give it some time. Play with your hack for some time, reboot it few times. As soon as you will see all your contacts in imessage now it should work. The name should be blue when you move the mouse over. 10. Login to the rest of services like facetime, icloud,appstore 11. Update to 10.12.2 12. If is either your touchpad/keyboard,sound not working Using kext utility install voodooPS2 and voodooHDA to your SLE. Same for network. You can find those files in the CLOVER/kext/others. This is why you may or may not need the USB keyboard and mouse. Don't forget to remove AppleHDA.kext from SLE. 13. If is all working for you, you may remove the verbose boot parameter to get rid of that text during boot. Enjoy Credits go to PikeRalpha, RehabMan and all the developers and guys on forum. If you have different CPU and want to try the guide remove the ssdt files from CLOVER/ACPI/patched and enable C and P states generation in clover. Also try different IGFX fakeid's if you have something different than HD530. If you can't get the install/login screen try some unknown fakeid (like 191b5678) to boot without framebuffer. It would be laggy but you still can install. Keep in mind this boot can take really long because it will try to load the framebuffer over and over until it times out. You should see lots of messages "can't load framebuffer". This config.plist includes patch for the graphic glitches by PikeRalpha. <key>Device</key> <string>IntelGFX</string> <key>Key</key> <string>AAPL,GfxYTile</string> <key>Value</key> <string>AQAAAA==</string> AHCIPortInjector.kext (included) is needed otherwise you wont see SATA drives. CLOVER kext folder also includes latest fakesmc, RehabMan-VoodooPS2-2016-1208 and voodooHDA-2.8.9 (lastest versions to date 12/14/2016) CLOVER.zip

  7. HP Envy 17 6700HQ intel HD 530 partially working

    So by generating ssdt.aml and placing it into /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched unlocked the turbo states but im still not sure if im getting all the power from it. update: removed all C and P states generation from clover. Left only with ssdt.aml I bit better but im still missing 300MHz somewhere. update: imessage started to work. After few reboots it just works
  8. HP Envy 17 6700HQ intel HD 530 partially working

    So i have managed to fix some things. Top left of the screen is a little bit glitchy but if you are not paying attention you wont even notice. Fixed by adding: <key>Device</key> <string>IntelGFX</string> <key>Key</key> <string>AAPL,GfxYTile</string> <key>Value</key> <string>AQAAAA==</string> Thanks to PikeRalpha and guys on forum. Turned out there is no need to patch the SKLbuffer kext. Its working OOB with same plist (fakeid 191b0000) for elcpt. I had issue with SATA, Sierra did not recognised any SATA device just USB. But AHCI Injector fixed the issue (it was not needed in elcpt though). VoodooPS2 was causing kernel panic but the latest version fixed it. Working: full resolution with acceleration, sound, mic, webcam, touchpad, keyboard, BT, LAN, imessage Not working: wifi, nvidia, hdmi, sleep I bought cheap nano USB wifi dongle so this is my current workaround for wifi. The speedstep is working but it can't reach turbo states. So im limited to 2.6GHz for the moment. I will post a tutorial soon.
  9. HP Envy 17 6700HQ intel HD 530 partially working

    Hi there, anyone has a luck with Sierra? From what i can tell it suffers the same windowserver crash. I did not try the patched kext so far. Not sure if it will work though. I will try later.
  10. Update GTX770 to 1070

    Hi there, did anyone try second vga as an addition to 1070/1080? I am thinking about to get nvidia 210hd which should be supported by OSX without issues, connecting both card to 1 monitor (using dvi and hdmi) but one thing i am not sure about is if the osx will know which card to use. I found some old thread from netkas http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/139016-howto-two-cards-one-supported-by-osx-another-one-is-not/page-3 but this is mostly for ati or ati and nvidia mixed not two nvidias like in my case. So i would set the 210hd as primary in bios(hopefully), so bootloader should show itself on this one and also hopefully the OSX will use this one. Anyone have any experiences with this kind of setup? I find it as a acceptable temporary solution for like 30 euros.
  11. HP Envy 17 6700HQ intel HD 530 partially working

    nope. its gone :/
  12. HP Envy 17 6700HQ intel HD 530 partially working

    That worked well. Thanks PS: anyone tried some different wifi module? I have not spare one at the moment but i would like to know if there is any blacklist for wifi modules. I am thinking about replacing it for some OSX compatible one.
  13. HP Envy 17 6700HQ intel HD 530 partially working

    Hey guys, which driver do you use for touchpad? I just tested mine and after update to 10.11.5 i lost my ability to click. I am using applePS2Controller with AppleACPIPS2Nub kext.

    Hearthstone is unplayable. I have like 0.1 FPS Maybe this has something to do with Graphics power management? I can see some errors in log file.
