  1. Hey everyone. I was a fairly regular poster on the tmx86 forums until I got banned there (for various reasons, many of them still unknown to me), and it was a coincidence that I got banned there at about the same time I managed to completely stabilise my hackintosh install, without any issues. I've had the same OS X 10.9.5 install on my drive for more than a year now. But over time it got cluttered with a tonne of 3rd-party software (SwitchResX, Adobe stuff, all sorts of video players, 3D modelling software and whatnot). I now have a large amount of free time on my hands, and I'd like to attempt a clean install of OS X on my notebook. As mentioned in the title - I'm more familiar with Chameleon than Clover, but I hear rumours about the latter being superior and more powerful. I'd like to give it a go, and see exactly how well it works on my system (which is fully UEFI-capable, but also has a CSM module). However, it's been a year since I last fiddled with hackintoshing, and I'm a little rusty. I'd like to see if I can re-do everything from scratch. Does anyone have tips? How do I migrate Chameleon quickly and effectively to Clover, having as similar a configuration as possible? Ask if you need any files like .dsls and my config.plist. Thanks.

    New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

    Mieze, Great job on the driver. I like how you slide in a "please don't support tonymacx86.com!" in your Console log. Aanyway, I just installed version 2.0.0. and apparently I have the RTL8411B chipset in my laptop. EEE and ASPM work well. However, OS X manages to enable the "Realtek PXE" device when I boot up, when I want to keep it disabled. What's wrong?
  3. Eh - the new font ​still isn't as good as Lucida Grande. Will probably be staying on Mavericks. Have fun, guys. I'm also more interested in what's going on with Vulkan rather than Metal, since Vulkan is/will be cross-platform and open-source.
  4. Thanks for the replies. I am still hoping I can somehow hold off upgrading...
  5. Hi guys. I haven't been on the hackintosh scene for a very long time, mainly because I don't like (very big understatement) Yosemite and its terrible UI design. However, I saw that the Mac App Store had updates for iWork and Xcode, which I use relatively frequently, but they were incompatible with Mavericks. Also, Office 2016 for Mac only works on Yosemite. I am thus forced to update, because of Apple's genius idea of removing support from OSes they released barely two years ago. I've got several questions. I don't like Yosemite's icon set. How do I replace all app and folder icons with those from Mavericks? Is there any way to change the default font from Helvetica Neue? Perhaps back to Lucida Grande? I'm currently booting with *that monstrous* fork of Chameleon. My notebook is 100% UEFI capable. What are the benefits and drawbacks of using Clover instead? Is a clean install necessary? My OS X install is extremely clean so far - I have barely 5 third-party apps (Illustrator, GIMP and such). Is there any way to make those incompatible apps somehow run on Mavericks? I really don't want to upgrade if I can help it. I currently like everything about Mavericks and Apple blew it to pieces with Yosemite. Thanks in advance. P. S. Please note: I do not intend to start a Mavericks vs. Yosemite flame war, or a flame war of any sort. The opinions above are my own and I hope they are respected, whatever yours might be. Please give constructive replies - any trolls will be reported.

    SUCCESS - I changed my public IP address. Just unplugged and switched off the router through the day, came back home, plugged it back in and I'm assigned a new IP. No more blocked sites. Suck it, tmx86.

    No dice. My phone browser is set to clear all data upon exit (for *ahem* reasons) and I still am blocked from such sites. The thing about my ISP's 'dynamic' IP is that the IP address is fixed to the particular device as long as it is connected and switched on, in this case, my router. If I directly plug my laptop into my fibre terminal, I get assigned a different IP address and I can access all such sites freely. Hence why I say that I have to leave my router off overnight and possibly through the day, so that a new address is leased to my router. Which I still haven't done yet. All the same, thanks for the help.

    No, it's dynamic. ISPs in my country don't give fixed IP addresses to residential locations. I should unplug the router overnight as well as through the day to see if the IP address changes. Thanks for all the inputs guys. InsanelyMac is a wonderful place to be.

    Does anyone here have contacts with the moderators at Stop Forum Spam? tmx86 have listed my IP address there and several of my choice usernames and e-mail addresses that I now cannot use for other forums like AVSIM. It's bloody annoying to have to switch to my metered and slower mobile network whenever I want to access that forum. I have already attempted to contact Stop Forum Spam twice but to no avail. Thanks guys... \ And screw tonymacx86.

    Meh, happened to me too. I wrote three guides. I was banned for reasons unknown and they deleted everything. I seriously want to DDoS their servers but I don't have the know-how.

    That's exactly what I'm saying - the only way to own a 'legitimate' copy of OS X is through the App Store. Hence distros aren't legit, are they? But I get your point - whatever we do, if we're installing OS X on a non-Apple-branded machine, it's in breach of the EULA, so it doesn't really matter.

    Back when OS X releases were not free (i.e. Mountain Lion and earlier), Niresh and similar packages like iAtkos were (still are) called distros, and packaged the OS X installer and several drivers, mods, and other not-very-friendly and unnecessary patches and hacks into a "convenient" single file that you just had to unpack into a USB drive, boot, install and get going. This was, in essence, piracy as a paid-for software was modified and re-distributed for free, and thus follows one of tonymacx86's more sane, less authoritarian rules: distros are piracy, and anyone using or discussing using them will be banned. If I understand correctly, users here are also strongly discouraged from using a distro and anyone found using it are warned by mods, and subsequent mentions could result in a suspension or ban (moderators, please correct me if I'm wrong). Mere discussion about their existence, function and history is allowed and perfectly alright. Although OS X is now free, distros still have that air of piracy about them as they can typically only be found at BitTorrent sites like TPB and KAT. It's one short step from an automated USB creator tool ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]) to an automated installer, to a pirated distro. Furthermore, they modify the OS X base which technically isn't allowed. Manually created installer drives merely unpack the official app into the drive and add a bootloader. I recommend you clean out your drive and install OS X manually, using pokenguyen's excellent guides here. Don't use distros, please.

  14. I've got the same issue, on a very slightly different laptop: the Clevo W230SS (specs in sig). I'm using Mavericks 10.9.5 and using Chameleon to boot my notebook. The VGA port, interestingly, works pretty well. Is there some sort of output swapping going on, with the HDMI signal going/coming from the VGA port?
