  1. El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony Vaio S

    I have a Sony Vaio SVS13A1S9ES (6GB RAM, 750GB HDD and replaced DVD player with a caddy for SSD and installed 128GD SSD). Replaced original PCIe WiFI/Bluetooth half-mini card with AzureWave AW-CE123H. Installed OS X/macOS onto 128GB SSD. I had successfully installed El Capitan and updated it to 10.11.6. After the update a fix for audio was needed and everything worked fine. The I upgraded to macOS Sierra and upgraded it to 10.12.6. What was not working after the upgrade: Audio, WiFi and had boot screen glitch. How to fix them. Audio: Delete CodecCommander.kext and reinstall it into L/E. Download latest Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext and place them into EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other. Devices Inject layout ID = 3. Uncheck (if checked) ResetHDA. In Clover at Acpi check AddDTGP and FixHDA. Place (if not already there) the AppleHDA patches into Clover KextsToPatch tab as per instructions. Insert (if not already there) the proper patches for HDMA into Clover KextsToPatch tab. WiFi: Download (if missing from previous OS X installation) FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, BrcmFirmwareData.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and place them into EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other. Place into Clover KextsToPatch tab the following patches. Name: AirPortBrcm4360 Find: 4183fcff 742c48 Replace: 66c70647 52eb2b (47 52 is for Greece, for other countries one needs to find the proper code, follow the instructions) Name: com.apple.driver.AirPort.Brcm4360 Find: 81f952aa 00007529 Replace: 81f952aa 00006690 Name: IOBluetoothFamily Find: 4885ff74 47488b07 Replace: 41be0f00 0000eb44 Second stage boot graphics glitch: Download IntelGraphicsFixup.kext and place it into EFI/Clover/kexts/Other. Also keep the patches regarding the glitch fix that were placed in Clover KextsToPatch tab when one installed El Capitan. I don't know if they are needed but I kept them. In Clover go to System Parameters and set Inject Kexts = Yes.
  2. El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony Vaio S

    I had installed the original version (EC 10.11) and after all the patches everything was working fine. I even had the WiFi card replaced with a compatible one. But...after I upgraded to EC 10.11.6 I have no sound output. All the kexts are loaded and I can see the HDEF@1B when I run IORegistry app, but no output devices when I check the sound in System Preferences. I have applied the patch suggested by the instructions when one upgrades to above EC 10.11.4. The only thing I was unable to do is to rebuild the caches after booting without caches because...I can't boot without caches! When I choose this option from Clover boot loader the system stays forever at the end of the line it displays during boot. Any ideas on how to solve this problem, I mean the sound problem. thanks
  3. WhatEverGreen Support Topic

    My Hackintosh mobo: Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 CPU: AMD FX-6300 Mem: 2x4GB On Board Audio Codec: ALC889 OS: SierraAMD 10.12.6 with kernel for AMD by Shaneee Now, can anybody tell me if I can use lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext to have native audio on this system? I have read that lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext (as well as WhateverGreen.kext) are built for Intel CPUs, but some people here have reported to have used them succesfully with AMD CPUs as well. So, what will it take to use them in my system? Edit: keep in mind that I have experimented with the kexts. I put the two kexts in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other and I turn the Sys.Par. "InjectKexts" into YES in Clover configuration. The kexts are successfully loaded (checked them out with "Kext Wizard") but nothing happens. No sound device recognized (the sound device window in System Preferences is empty) and the sound icon on the panel is grey. When I trash the kexts and re-install VoodooHDA everything works, but...the sound Is not very good, there is always some noise in the background (even though I have turned the onboard microphone inputs -back and front- to zero gain). So, I would prefer native audio. thanks in advance
  4. @Fantomas1 The flickering problem was solved by using SwtichResX and setting the number of colours to millions
  5. AMD replace kext for Yosemite

    Works just fine (together with some other hacks) for my Yosemite 10.10.5 AMD FX 6300 installation (mobo GA 990XA-UD3) with AMD HD 6770 graphics card. After installing the modified AMD5000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX3000.kext, the system would get stuck at a white-grey screen with a spinning ball. After the installation of these kexts (and I think a amd webkit patch) everything worked just fine. There was graphics acceleration, but the system reported the wrong graphics card (AMD Radeon 5000), but it's OK, it's just a misunderstanding (LOL).
  6. macOS Sierra on AMD FX6300 with ATI Radeon HD 6770 (device ID 0x68ba1002) and mobo GA-990XA-UD3, works fine after inserting the ID into AMD5000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX3000.kext (full QE_CI) BUT...screen is constantly flickering and keeps alternating between blue based colors and the normal Sierra desktop colors. So, Sierra (10.12.5) is not fully compatible with Radeon HD 6770. Any ideas how to solve the problem?
  7. @pippox0 Please help. I have a similar case (laptot Sony Vaio, GPT disk 750GB, EFI partition on /dev/sda3, Windows 10 on /dev/sda5, Ubuntu on /dev/sda7+8+9 and El Capitan on /dev/sda10). I have copied manually CLOVER folder from the Install USB onto the EFI partition and tried to chainload it from GRUB 2. I have also tried all kinds of alternative methods but...no luck! Your solution seems promising but HOW do you EXTRACT boot from Clover? I have not seen any such file in CLOVER folder. PS I can boot into El Capitan fine if I boot from USB clover.
  8. Can't change brightness on my hackintosh

    @Jykobz, The file you had uploaded on MEGA is not available anymore. Could you please re-upload it? I have installed Maverics on a Fujitsu Siemens Si 2636 laptop with Intel GMA 965 (X3100) and everything else works except brightness control. When I operate the laptop on battery, the screen is very dim, I cannot see anything. All help appreciated.
  9. Install OSX Leopard on EeePC 900 - Fully Working! OSX installed on the second internal 8GB SSD memory of the EeePC 900. 1-2. PURCHASE OS X Leopard disc. 3. You need an external USB DVD player. Plug it into the EeePC and insert the OSX Leopard DVD (iPC OSx86 10.5.6). 4. Boot from the DVD 5. Follow the instructions from Install Mac OS X (iPC 10.5.6) on EeePC 900 Part1 Youtube video on how to install the OSX Leopard on the internal SSD memory of the EeePC 900. How to prepare (partition) the second EeePC 900 SSD memory and what cutomizations to choose for the installation of OSX 10.5.6 6. Make sure NOT to choose any Audio drivers during Customize. Also Ethernet can be passed on since the Attansic L1 driver of Customize does not work either. Also, Wireless does not work (we'll see workarounds for these). 7. During Customize in "Fixes and Patches" make sure in "PS/2 Device Support" you check PS/2 Mouse Fix NOT Keyboard Fix. The video instructions here are WRONG. 8. After installation an Reboot follow the instructions of Install Mac OS X (iPC 10.5.6) on EeePC 900 Part 2 Youtube video for the post-installation configuration of the system. 9. If during the first reboot or even later on the system fteezes on boot (stay on "apple screen with the revolving cursor indefinetly) or reports kernel panic, don't panic. Power off the system by pressing the power button for a while and (it might be necessary to) remove and replug the battery. Has worked for me. 10. After the initial installation almost everything works! Display works, camera works, keyboard and mouse work. 11. What doesn't work. Ethernet, Wireless, Audio don't work. To make them work do the following 12. Wireless. Do NOT get the Dell 1390 minicard (as many suggest in the forums) to replace the internal wireless card of the EeePC 900. You probably cannot find it (easyly) outside US and it's hell to do the replacement. You must literally take the EeePC 900 apart. Get a cheap (around 19€) USB wireless dongle based on Realtek RTL8187B chip (that's what I did) and download the "Realtek_RTL8187B_MacOS10.5_Driver1148_UI157.zip" driver (from Realtek site) and install it on your OSX system (run the install.pkg to do it). And Voila! you have wireless. Or maybe the RTL8187Bt.kext from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=193561 could work (unzip and use Kext Helper to install the kext). I did the first choice. 13. Sound. Get the VoodooHDA kext (it's in a zip file, see the README also) from "http://thireus.dareyourmind.net/index.php/macos-apps/13-get-microphone-and-audio-in-working-on-your-eeemac" and install it with Kext Helper. The site has instructions also about what to chose and hpw to install it. I chose the 0.2.2_r8_Thireus_patched_light and it works fine. 14. Ethernet. Get the kext (driver) "AttansicL2Ethernet090224.kext.zip" for the EeePC 900 ethernet adapter from "http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=102835&st=0entry1091709" and install it using kext helper. 15. To have proper Mac control keys, goto System Preferences/Keyboard & Mouse/Keyboard/Modifier Keys... and switch Option Key and Command Key. Then the Windows Key will function as Command Key and the Alt Key will function as Option Key, just like in real MacBook. Now you have a fully functioning MacEee with OS X Leopard 10.5.6 Almost. The Fn (blue) keys don't work. Also instructions from "http://overuseee.pistooli.com/?p=146" can be usefull especially if you want to transfer the OSX installation to a SD card or an external USB Disk (using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper!) and must make the partition bootable.
