  1. APFS.efi without verbose boot

    The patch also works in 10.13.3 final (17D47), thank you guys !!
  2. @edwinvarelas: Great !! You did it !!! Yet I will wait for the coming WACOM drivers. BTW, I have changed the eraser tip to right-click successfully: on run tell application "TabletDriver" set screenNumber to 0 set tabletNumber to 0 set transducerNumber to 0 set BTNFUNC to button function of button 4 of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber if BTNFUNC is equal to auto erase then set button function of button 2 of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to pan set button function of button 3 of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to double click set button function of button 4 of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to right click else set button function of button 2 of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to right click set button function of button 3 of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to double click set button function of button 4 of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to auto erase end if end tell end run The buttons on the stylus will be switched between { click, right-click, double-click, auto-erase, } and { click, pan/scroll, double-click, right-click, } for better fit of drawing mode and browsing mode usages.
  3. @edwinvarelas: I think you're right, the new USB limitations of 10.11 keep our ATIV from sleeping. You can try to solve that problem with these helps: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306777-guide-usb-fix-el-capitan-1011/ http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308325-guide-1011-full-speed-usb-series-89-keeping-vanilla-sle/?p=2172365 Wish you good luck and good news to share with us !!
  4. Have anyone ever tried 10.11 successfully with fully-working sleep or CPU turbo boosts on ATIV? Both failed on my 1st test drive few days ago and make me very upset. What is more, WACOM has not released any 10.11 drivers yet, and it seemed to be a long way before they do this: http://us.wacom.com/elcapitan/?linkId=17413149 Looking forward to any good news coming soon...
  5. My ATIV is XE700T1C-A02US, which is listed on the SAMSUNG official website, so it should be quite "typical" "standard" in specs including on-board devices and firmware, I guess. However, I can't get the backlight to work like others do at first... The RehabMan patch of IGPU seemed not accessible with MaciASL in recent days, so I have to add PNLF and LCD1234 manually by myself. After my twitches, the DSDT works successfully to get the backlight adjustable, the battery and the USB3 seemed working perfectly, but the ATIV failed to sleep... I tried lots of solutions to make it sleep, and all of them failed. The only one working is from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298815-guide-samsung-ativ-700t-yosemite/page-1?hl=+xe700t1c Thank you mactabletman, your DSDT works great in sleep !! But this DSDT gives no backlight. I had tried everything to make it work, yet there is no backlight available. Then I start to compare the 2 DSDTs of my original and this one from mactabletman for the possible differences, and find out that they vary a lot in many details. I don't know what on earth makes them looked so different, but in the last few lines of GFX0 I noticed something wrong: OperationRegion (SNVS, SystemMemory, 0xDA09BF18, 0xD0) from mactabletman's DSDT. OperationRegion (SNVS, SystemMemory, 0xDA053F18, 0xD0) from my DSDT. So I changed mactabletman's DSDT to my addresses, BINGO ! Now I have backlight and sleep together on my ATIV finally. I don't really know what happened to the PM portion of mactabletman's DSDT, so I cannot explain why it works so perfect in sleep (No shxt, just like a real Mac do !). I think the modified DSDT may help some noob guys like me, so I upload it here and use at your own (risk) !! DSDT.aml.zip
  6. Using fb-rotate, I write another script to turn then screen and pen/tablet from 0 to 90 degrees to-and-fro on the fly: on run tell application "TabletDriver" set tabletNumber to 0 set transducerNumber to 0 set ORIENT to orientation of tablet tabletNumber set ROTMODE to orientation of tablet tabletNumber end tell tell application "Finder" set SCRAREA to bounds of window of desktop as list end tell if item 3 of SCRAREA = 1920 then do shell script "/real-path-to-the-app/fb-rotate -d 0 -r 90" else do shell script "/real-path-to-the-app/fb-rotate -d 0 -r 0" end if repeat until ROTMODE is not equal to ORIENT delay 1 tell application "TabletDriver" set tabletNumber to 0 set transducerNumber to 0 set ROTMODE to orientation of tablet tabletNumber end tell end repeat tell application "TabletDriver" if ROTMODE = landscape then set tablet area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to {0, 0, 28518, 17468} as list end if if ROTMODE = portrait then set tablet area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to {3590, 160, 17800, 25500} as list end if end tell tell application "EasyOnTheEyes" quit end tell repeat until application "EasyOnTheEyes" is not running delay 1 end repeat run application "EasyOnTheEyes" end run Remember to change "real-path-to-the-app" to the fb-rotate on your machine. "EasyOnTheEyes" is my quick night-mode mask. Too pity I don't know how to rotate it with AppleScript, so I shut it down and re-launch it to force it to the correct orientations. If you don't need it, please remove the lines from the script by yourself.
  7. Finally get the stylus pen to work in absolute mode with portrait orientation!! Turn the screen with fb-rotate or manual-setting to 90 degrees, and run following script: on run repeat until application "TabletDriver" is running delay 1 end repeat tell application "TabletDriver" set tabletNumber to 0 set transducerNumber to 0 set positioning mode of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to absolute set SCRAREA to screen area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber as list if item 3 of SCRAREA = 1920 then set tablet area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to {0, 0, 28518, 17468} as list end if if item 3 of SCRAREA = 1080 then set tablet area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to {3580, 160, 17800, 25500} as list end if end tell end run Only 0 and 90 degrees orientations is coded in this script, no 180/270 degrees orientations because I don't need them. I export the script to an executable on my Desktop for easy access once I change my orientations, and also add it to my login items to make it correct my stylus configurations automatically after any reboots. The tablet areas of landscape and portrait modes could have to be fine-tuned if my numbers not fitting your tablets.
  8. @duduclx: I had tried to upgrade to 10.11 this afternoon. I can boot to desktop successfully, but regret immediately because the pen-tablet drivers refuse to work !! What is more, the CPU frequency seemed failed with 10.11. I can see it ticking only around 800+ MHz, never more than 900 Sleep is quite normal, memory leak is even lesser than 10.10, but I lose my hand-writing ability and that is what I really need. Before the new pen-tablet driver become available, I shall stick to 10.10 for a better support
  9. @duduclx: Because lots of people really need to work in portrait orientations, somebody from Modbookish had written a dedicated app for the screen rotations: http://modbookish.lefora.com/topic/3513246/A-Unix-Utility-to-Change-the-Primary-Display-on-OSX/#.VgnnWbTH66g Once the app executed from the terminal, it would change the screen orientations permanently even if the system is rebooted. Just run it again with adequate parameters from the terminal to bring the screen orientations back. Besides, the system preferences panel had a hidden feature to allow anybody adjusting the screen orientations in a somehow-odd way: open system preferences panel (close and reopen it again if already opened), press and hold "option/alt" + "cmd" keys simutaneously, then left click "Display" property with the cursor. In the Display property panel a new pull-down button labeled "Rotation: Standard" will show up, click it to pull down the menu and choose the screen orientations from inside.
  10. A minor problem of orientation bothered me in these days. I tried to rotate the ATIV 90 degrees for a better holding and reading position, but the stylus pen did not rotate automatically with the screen like other devices such as mouses or trackpads. I thought it to be a driver-related problem, because the ISD-V4 properties were all correct when rotated 90 degrees, but the cursor just moved in non-rotated directions that make it very ridiculous and hard to use. So I wrote a small script to correct this situation: on run tell application "TabletDriver" set screenNumber to 0 set tabletNumber to 0 set transducerNumber to 0 set XDIM to X dimension of tablet tabletNumber if XDIM = 28707 then set orientation of tablet tabletNumber to landscape set positioning mode of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to absolute set screen area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to {0, 0, 1920, 1080} as list set tablet area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to {0, 0, 28707, 17979} as list set map display of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to screenNumber end if if XDIM = 17979 then set orientation of tablet tabletNumber to landscape set positioning mode of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to relative set screen area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to {0, 0, 1080, 1920} as list set tablet area of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to {0, 0, 28707, 17979} as list set map display of transducer transducerNumber of tablet tabletNumber to screenNumber end if end tell end run Yet I had 2 problems in this script: 1. Not able to set the stylus pen to absolute mode in the portrait orientation. I had to set the tablet orientation to landscape mode even though the screen was in the portrait mode. This was the only way to get the cursor to work in the right directions, or it would always move in the wrong ways. Thus, the stylus absolute mode seemed not possible using a wrong orientation of landscape mode. 2. This script cannot be started automatically, or it will give an error message about not finding the tablet 0 and stop to work. This could be a starting-sequence problem. Someone please help, will be appreciated with many, many Thanks !!
  11. Thanks again duduclx!! I'll try the post-install part after my job to fix the backlight problems
  12. Thank you for the very detailed guide duduclx!! It helped me a lot in installing my new XE700T1CA02 yesterday. BTW, I would like to urge those new ATIV users: Do not try to modify any procedure mentioned in this guide even if you were familiar with Hackingtosh!! Things always change, and the trivial differences between installing XE700T1CA02 and other laptops failed me several times yesterday lol. Just follow this guide exactly to the last step, and everything will be fine. As to the backlight problem, I searched the internet and found this site: http://renderingpipeline.com/graphics-literature/low-level-gpu-documentation/ In the Intel section, I compared the backlight PWM registers at 48250-4h and c8250-4h of HD4000 and Intel HD 1st Generation, and I “assumed” they should be the same things more than their physical addresses XD. I did do the experiments following this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/ Thank you mnorthern for the great guide!! Thank you RehabMan for your guides and kexts, they finally worked very good on my ATIV!! On my first ride to follow this guide, the backlight still failed as usual. In another post once I read (Sorry I forgot which post and whom I should thank to XD.) said that he installed a backlight control app from APP Store and everything worked marvelously like a charm, so I installed this from App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/easyontheeyes/id799584781?mt=12 EasyOnTheEyes by SmartCodeHQ It’s FREE, but very useful because the magic hits again, my backlight control really came back after I run it on the menubar!! If mentioning this App may cause any legal copyright problems, anybody plz tell me to modify this post, thanx…
  13. HD4000 garbles movie previews in iTunes

    Solved. Just changed the IOGVACodec settings from Gen7 to Gen6 in /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelHD4000Graphics.kext/Contents/Info.plist.
  14. HD4000 garbles movie previews in iTunes

    I have two desktops (i3-3225 and i5-3570k) using HD4000 as the one and only graphic output source. They are enabled with DSDT/EFI strings each and configured to "AAPL,ig-platform-id" = <00006605> both. They are connected to LCD displays (LG 27" and ASUS 22") with HDMI/DVI cables each. Everything goes fine until I tried to see some movie previews with iTunes. Once I clicked the preview button, the preview window was filled with colorful squares and mosaic sprites, just like undecoded HDMI outputs on older LCD displays without HDCP supports. With the same LCD displays connected, my notebook using NV9600GT had quite normal movie preview windows without a glitch. Because the desktop HD4000 worked greatly if not using iTunes, I had no idea what happened eventually. Other players such as QTW, Flip4Mac, Flash, MplayerX, or even PPS had normal decoding behaviors and excellent video outputs, only iTunes screwed me up. Is there anbody having the same problems just like me? Can something be done to fix it? Many, many thanks if any one can help!! PS: I am pretty sure that I had double-checked the DSDT/EFI strings configurations to be correctly settled...
