  1. AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    I managed to fix it, albeit in an extremely dirty way. I pulled the sources of AppleALC at both 1.1.4 and master. I then replaced the Resources folder from 1.1.4 into master, and compiled AppleALC. The resulting kext worked. I am attaching the resulting kexts and also the log, in case someone is inclined to debug the issue. Debug.zip Release.zip log.txt
  2. AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    Hello, My system is an Acer Aspire VX15 (i5-7300HQ, 8 GB RAM, Intel HD 630). The Audio is an ALC255. Up until yesterday, I was on 10.13, with AppleALC 1.1.4 + Lilu 1.1.7, and the audio was working perfectly. Then, I updated to 10.13.2, and I had kernel panic. I had held off from updating Lilu and AppleALC, as the audio wasn't working, but I was out of options now. So, I updated, and the kernel panic was fixed, but the audio, as expected, was no longer working (No input/output devices detected). I have attached the debug log, and have verified that AppleALC and Lilu are loaded. I have tried installing to S/L/E, L/E, and CLOVER/kexts/Other, but the result is same. Please let me know if anything else is required, and I'll post it as soon as possible. Thank you for any help. Working.zip log.txt CLOVER.zip
  3. TL-WN781ND not working on Yosemite

    Please confirm that this works. I'm gonna buy the card if it does.
  4. "Last Resort"? Lolz. It's not that hard. I had it done within 15 minutes. And it's the ONLY solution for the contact customer support error. Of course, you'll need NVRam module if you are using Chameleon.
  5. What I had already tried Add Credit Card details Reinstall OS X Restarted New serial number Reset password etc. How to fix it? Contact Apple Support Start telling him/her about the problem as soon as he/she says hello. ESPECIALLY about the pop-up and the customer code. Give legit details. Even serial number. Keep telling him/her you are looking at the right place. He/She will say it's invalid. Confirm it again. Eventually, ask him/her to drop it/why does he/she needs it?I asked, and she said to know what Mac I was using. I gave her all the info she could want(Keep Champlist and everymac.com open) He/She'll ask you to repeat the Customer Code. Do it. He/She'll ask you your ID. Give him/her the correct one(The one that you're entering in the Messages app). He/She'll tell you that he/she needs to confirm that you're a real person, and will ask you to answer the security questions that you answered when you created the account(Like "Where did your parents meet?"/"What was your childhood name?"). You'll need to get at least one right(I think). He/She'll ask you to reboot. Do it. He/She'll tell you not to worry. Don't. Voila! You'll be able to login just fine. THANK HIM/HER. So, I think this issue was caused because I had changed so many Serial Numbers that Apple flagged me as a bot. Once I verified my identity, all was well! It worked fine for me, so just sharing. If you've got some problem, feel free to ask, although I've got exams the whole month so probably won't be able to help. Even so, I'll try to.
  6. container-dmg=file - how to disable?

    You just need to copy BaseSystem.dmg and BaseSystem.chunklist from InstallESD.dmg root to your Installer USB's root. i.e. Open Terminal and go(mind the spaces): sudo cp [Drag in InstallESD partition here]/Base* [Drag in installer root]/ So, for me, it was : sudo cp /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Base* /Volumes/Installer
  7. @Miztorr: What you said may be right, but it's probably wrong. The first time that NVRAm is set up, those values are randomly selected. That would prevent them from knowing whether those are two different real macs or just the same hack with a couple of changes by the hacker. And, apple has paid no attention to stupid guys like us who install the genuinely purchased OS on their PC as a hobby. And, I've tried restoring my PC(twice) as well. Of course, if they started "recording" MAC addresses, or some other constant hardware serial number, such as, I don't know, processor serial number, than they could say "The processor is the same, serial number is different. Must be a hackintosh." or something like that. Look, all I'm saying is Apple would need something constant, not something that can be emulated by software, to know if a two machines are same, but with different serial numbers that are emulated by a boot loader.
  8. Nor do I have a credit card. No 15 year old has where I live. And I tried using my father's iDevice yesterday. Din't work
  9. Yes, In fact NVRam is fully function. It is built-in in Clover, and FileNVRam.dylib is required for Chameleon. I've tried both.
  10. Well, I don't iMessage on my hackintosh out, but as soon as I log out of iMessage on my dad's iPhone, the error message pops up again. The other fixes, I have yet to try. *I don't log out of my iMessage on my hackintosh
  11. Sorry for being a little late (okay, a lot), I was busy with some homework. Ok, so I am posting links to the files below. (i) Clover Config file - Here (ii) Chameleon SMBios - Here (iii) org.chameleon.Boot.plist - Here (iv) Bootlog from Chameleon - Here (v) Bootlog from Clover - Can't find it
  12. Sorry, but I forgot to mention - I have already EthernetBuiltIn=Yes and I am typing from my mac now, through the Ethernet. As I said, App Store is working (which also requires Ethernet).
  13. Hey guys, This is my first topic on this forum, but I've been familiar with the mackintosh community for 3 years, and am not afraid to get my hands dirty. With that said, to the problem. I am having trouble signing into iMessage. And believe me I don't like posting stupid, duplicate topics without a reason to do so. I've read every damn topic on the net I could find, tried it, and all of those failed. It always tells me, "Your Apple ID "[My Mail ID]" can't be used to set up iMessage at this time". But, my father bought an iPhone 5s a couple of weeks ago, and I used it for a week. My iMessage was signed in on the phone. And around that time, I upgraded to Mavericks. I gave my father the iPhone back 3 days ago, and that's when it started giving me this stupid message. So, after browsing a bit, I heard about NVRam and Clover, and saw that my PC didn't have a UUID. So, I got the necessary tools and applied a UUID to my machine. Yet it didn't work. Also tried a full restore, booting from Chameleon, Chimera, and Clover. Nothing works. The only thing that works is signing into my father's iPhone. And again, logging out of that gives me the message. Yes, I've checked for nvram.[uuid].plist, and everything but the IOPower variables are valid. MLB and ROM are in place. Find MyMac works. I've also created a recovery partition. I would also have tried gdb-ing iMessage, but I'm terrible at that. I, currently, am on 10.9.1(It didn't work on 10.9 also). Also, I didn't use Messages when I used 10.8. Any suggestions would be warmly welcome.
  14. Here, use the https://www.dropbox.com/s/74os9g5fwyikgji/Marvell88E8056.kext.zip , repair permissions and reboot. You may also want to remove the previous kext. Use EthernetBuiltIn, assuming you are using Chameleon or Chimera, or Inject the device id (11ab 4364) if you use Clover. NOTE: I am only guessing on the later one. 88E8056 works here on my hackintosh.Contact me if you have any more queries.
