    OpenCore Discussion

    Hey guys, I have 2 HDD in my laptop (1 NVME Windows/Ubuntu and 1 SATA Mac install with OC EFI). OpenCore will show my Windows login with ScanPolicy=0, but when trying to use it, it comes up 'System BootOrder not found. Initializing defaults." What would the reason for that be? Is it because my Windows install is on a different boot device then my OC install or that each drive has it's own EFI folder with different Boot\bootx64.efi? I just need clarification on why this is happening as I do want the choice to be able to boot into Windows from OC. Clover does allow me to boot into both Windows and Ubuntu.
  2. Thanks I originally had it in the 3rd spot and with this new update, put it first and both worked. Since this new update only has the injector instead of incorporating the firmware files as well, think it makes more sense to do it first since it's a service that brcmpatchram3 depends on. I wanted to confirm.
  3. Thanks man working on Catalina with OpenCore. Question, is there a proper way to inject this with OpenCore? I don't know if the injector kext should be first, followed by the Data and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext or should it be Data, RAM3 and then Injector? Just a thought as OpenCore, you need to define the order of the kexts.

    Hackintool v2.8.6

    Hey was wondering if anyone has been experiencing an issue with the latest Hackintool? In the past, when I would go through the USB guide, a SSDT-EC.aml wasn't created and I would get a SSDT-USBx.aml. Now when I did the guide on 10.15 with OpenCore, it says SSDT-EC.aml is required? I do have both a ECDV (PNP0C09) and a H_EC (not active) in my DSDT. I have done the rename ECDV to EC, but every time now, Hackintool wants me to put a SSDT-EC.aml in my setup. If I do use that file, I then have 2 devices in my IOReg for EC and AppleACPIEC is still loaded. Do I need both the rename ECDV to EC and SSDT-EC.aml with my laptop or just the rename? Also is USBx not needed in Catalina? I do have a AppleBusPowerController in IOResources, but not in EC like Mojave did. I do get the verbose when booting from AppleBusPowerController that power supply is unavailable and assuming power. Little confused by OC SSDT-ECUSBx.aml file too so just want clarification what is correct for my Dell laptop.

    AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    I want to know this too. I have been working with @insanelyDeepak in seeing of a way to incorporate COEF values to make Line In to work on external headset when plugged into the combo jack, but haven't found a way yet. Yes there is the combo jack application, but preferably if things can be integrated without having to use another application, it will help in future updates if combo jack stops being maintained and will be more cleaner. Here is my laptops Realtek ALC256 codec_dump in case anything helps. If people need what values the ALC256 uses for the COEF, the Combojack source has it, same with the Linux source of the Realtek Tables. I know codecs without needing CodecCommander can do this so it should be possible, I just am not any good in coding to figure it out. codec_dump.txt

    Here you go. Hackintool provides you some of the patches that is needed based on your laptop config so that's where I got the rename command from. OC.zip

    Here is mine after renaming ECDV to EC. Per looking over this thread, it says if this is a laptop, we have to keep the EC device after renaming since battery stats are tied to it. My laptop doesn't even allow me to disable ECDV as a test as if I do, my laptop will freeze during boot so just have to keep it there. Question I have though is I used Hackintool to customized my USB devices, in the past the tool wouldn't generate a SSDT-EC.aml, but now it does and it doesn't give me a SSDT-USBx.aml. Is the USBx power properties no longer needed in 10.15? I do have a AppleBusPowerController in IOResources, but not on the EC device like 10.14 did when used with USBx.

    Yeah sorry I did research and found the Vanilla Desktop guide for Kaby Lake, but can't find this guide that you mentioned. Do you have a link for reference?

    I can confirm I am having the same issue. Was fine when building from OpenCore source a month ago, but this latest release, using '-v', doesn't show verbose. Not sure if it's just -v that is affected as I have a Kaby Lake CPU and use 'lilucpu=8' to fix the Graphical issues that Kaby Lake has with Mojave. The reason I don't think it's working is when using that flag, my laptop screen won't go black for 1 second when the second boot stage process to starting, but during this build, the screen does black out for that duration. I did confirm with the following commands 'nvram -p | grep boot-args' that boot-args are being passed to NVRAM so know NVRAM is working.
  10. Thanks for the suggestion. I realized you were not the author I was just mentioning as didn't have the issue with Rehabman's repo on Mojave. Also wanted to ask you if this commit is added to your source? https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM/pull/68 as this helped a few people when awake from sleep on Mojave including myself. Thanks again for your work on this and other projects!
  11. Hello @headkaze thanks for your work! I have an issue with my DW-1560 0x216f BCM20702A0. Basically this morning I booted up Catalina on a cold boot and the system took awhile to boot and when it did, I had no BT or WiFi. I had the latest Clover applied with your kexts applied to Clover/kexts/Other. I went back to just using the BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext from the one I found on the preRelease forum which didn't have this issue, but on a cold boot, I have to boot into Windows to get BT to detect any devices so it is a tradeoff. Please let me know if you need anything else to help.

    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    Hey everyone I upgraded to Catalina and everything works so far, but was wondering I saw some people mention about high CPU power in Intel Power Gadget and mine is the same. When my laptop is idle my Power PKG stays at around 3.00. On Mojave it was sitting at 0.50. I compiled the updated CPUFriend for 10.15 and my frequency does go below 1.30GHz like it did before so wonder what is using more power. My dGPU is still disabled through my SSDT-PTSWAK and other aml files so maybe it is because Catalina is still in beta. debug_16443.zip

    Thanks, but I am already using a SSDT for CodecCommander. My 0x21 is using 021707c0 and my 0x19 is 01970724 as according to my linux dump, shows that is correct. What is the propose of Node 20 and what does the COEF commands in this case do? This is my SSDT.aml file. /* * Intel ACPI Component Architecture * AML/ASL+ Disassembler version 20161210-64(RM) * Copyright (c) 2000 - 2016 Intel Corporation * * Disassembling to non-symbolic legacy ASL operators * * Disassembly of iASLO3abAT.aml, Fri Apr 12 20:13:29 2019 * * Original Table Header: * Signature "SSDT" * Length 0x0000014A (330) * Revision 0x01 * Checksum 0x4D * OEM ID "Deepak" * OEM Table ID "ALC256" * OEM Revision 0x00000000 (0) * Compiler ID "INTL" * Compiler Version 0x20161210 (538317328) */ DefinitionBlock ("", "SSDT", 1, "Deepak", "ALC256", 0x00000000) { External (_SB_.PCI0.HDEF, DeviceObj) // (from opcode) Name (_SB.PCI0.HDEF.RMCF, Package (0x02) { "CodecCommander", Package (0x0A) { "Custom Commands", Package (0x03) { Package (0x00) {}, Package (0x08) { "Command", Buffer (0x04) { 0x02, 0x17, 0x07, 0xC0 }, "On Init", ">y", "On Sleep", ">n", "On Wake", ">y" }, Package (0x08) { "Command", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x97, 0x07, 0x24 }, "On Init", ">y", "On Sleep", ">n", "On Wake", ">y" } }, "Perform Reset", ">n", "Perform Reset on External Wake", ">n", "Send Delay", 0x0A, "Sleep Nodes", ">n" } }) } I will attach my codec_dump file in case there is something else that I am missing with AppleALC.

    AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    Hey @Andres ZeroCross thanks so much for your work! I wanted to know the answer too because I thought the Anti-click meant the click you get when the audio codec goes to sleep, but I still get that click or pop as some people call it unless there are two different things? Is there a proper way to get AppleALC to use AntiPop instead of using another product or script? Please let me know as this issue and the COEF issue with my Realtek ALC256 for headsets are the main things I've noticed with Hackintosh.

    I also have the ALC256 on the Dell Inspiron 7567 and with talking with @insanelyDeepak, he mentioned the headset mic issue is related to proper COEF values are not being set when you plug in a headset. This is causing the Input device to stay on Internal Microphone. There is a workaround using Combojack with Verbstub.kext, but the issue I have is it is not very streamlined and I randomly will get static sound through the headphones, similar to the sound you hear when you don't use CodecCommander with SSDT-ALC256.aml. @insanelyDeepak did mention he will take a look at getting COEF working, but he is very busy right now and I can definitely imagine how much work this would be. Hope that explains a little about the issue.
