    Hi Guys,

    Here is an application which @ricoc90 created to download different versions of macOS from High Sierra to Catalina (Final versions and Betas) for the users that have issues with downloading the whole installer.

    I just downloaded the first Public Beta using this app :)



    Please add the link to the first post if you thinks it's gonna be useful for others as well.




    Mac Downloader.zip


    It's crashing on Catalina Beta 7...


    Application Specific Information:
    *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSRangeException', reason: '*** -[__NSSingleObjectArrayI objectAtIndex:]: index 2 beyond bounds [0 .. 0]'
    terminating with uncaught exception of type NSException
    abort() called

    Has anyone tried running Parallels Desktop on Catalina?  I usually wait to install the GM on my main system partition but I'm getting impatient and want to make the switch to Catalina DP6 but I really, really need to be able to use Parallels for work.  How about Xfinder?  How about Radio Silence?  I know there are workarounds for those two.


    I have been using Parallels 14.1.3 since Beta 1 without problems. I have CENTOS in virtual machine and Windows 10 with Bootcamp (VM created using Windows partition) working perfectly.



  3. @"Sniki" Sorry. Fixed it.

    I look forward to the updates.

    This dynamic update you are doing sounds interesting.


    @javashin1986 I haven't had time to upgrade to version 10.14.6 yet because I'm using this hackintosh at work. I work with mobile development, so I'm afraid to give any problems. Soon I will complete a project and I will perform the update, but it is good to know that it worked without problems.

  4. @aikido14 teorically will work "as is".


    Just make sure to use te 32MB config.plist if you'll not mod your BIOS.


    - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
                  If you have modded BIOS with Advanced Menu and enabled 128MB DRAM-prealloc use 128MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
                  If no, then use 32MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip


    And you'll not have WIFI working without mod your BIOS. Because you need to replace the stock wifi card, and have a BIOS protection (whitelist)

    First of all, thanks so much for this guide. 


    I followed it to the letter with the exception of replacing hardware and re-flashing the bios. However, after selecting "install from MacOs" in Clover (per verbose mode) it automatically reboots right after "end randomseed". So I can't even reach the installer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

    Check if AppleRTC, KernelPm and ASUSAICPUm are enabled. Open config.plist with Clover Configurator

    why u use kexts in system folder?


    I saw in several places that custom Kexts have to be in /Library/Extensions, so I put all there and run this:


    sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions/
    sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions/
    sudo kextcache -i / 


    Some news:

    Now I'm patching the vanilla AppleHDA with AppleHDA Patcher 1.9.2 (aDummy.kext + KextToPatchs). Already make the onboard sound work without graphics issues. Now I need to make the HDMI work...


    Since yesterday I'm using the AppleHDA Patcher guide, using the aDummy.kext + Device Properties 0x1f, 0x3 + config.plist - KextsToPatch method.


    I found that to work on Mojave I needed an additional patch 70A1 -> F0A2. With this I finished yesterday with sound working without using VoodooHDA or AppleALC, only with the native Kext. But no HDMI.




    Today I realized that the entry "hda-gfx: onboard-1" in IGPU was missing. I added and I also got the HDMI audio to work, HOWEVER, I immediately had exactly the same problems as when using AppleALC. The screen flashing/blinking with green artifacts as I showed in the two Youtube videos above.


    So far the only one that works without this bugs with the video was VoodooHDA, I think I'll have to settle for it and the lack of the microphone.


    @MaLd0n Sou brasileiro também, se preferir posso explicar melhor em Português por DM o que está acontecendo e o que eu fiz até agora pra tentar resolver. Inglês não é meu forte e pode parecer confuso.

  7. No, the only patches I have are:







    And only these SSDTs for USBInjectAll:





    I've tried these SSDTs too unsuccessfully:



    from Toleda.


    If Maldon was able to fix my DSDT for HDMI to work with aDummy.kext I would be very grateful.

    ^ DSDT.aml HERE

  8. @Allan yeap. My 4K works perfectly. The graphics issues is only with AppleALC. With VoodooHDA it's fine.




    I'm using Macmini8,1 profile, so I can get 4k without Device Properties too.


    Now I'm patching the vanilla AppleHDA with AppleHDA Patcher 1.9.2 (aDummy.kext + KextToPatchs). Already make the onboard sound work without graphics issues. Now I need to make the HDMI work...


    [EDIT] To be clear. I'm not satisfied with VoodooHDA because the sound gets too low, have to use PrefPane and the microphone does not work ... So now I started doing the old method (aDummy.kext + Kext) to get rid of graphics issues...

  9. Hi @courfazor, thanks for the feedback.


    I will answer some questions:

    I did not change my hardware


    The original wireless card is not compatible. So your wifi is not working, right?


    1 hour ago, courfazor said:

    Also, you need to mount the EFI of your system too when installing


    I omitted this part because you would have just installed Clover on the internal disk, so the EFI partition would already be mounted. But I'll add that anyway.

    I also made sure to copy SSDT-L440.aml from the USB too iton /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ in my new installation


    That part was missing. I just added it now.

    I wonder if I can do the exact same on this model?


    You can follow the same steps with the exception of SSDT-L440.aml that you will need a new one. Try first the 128M config.plist then 32M config.plist.

    does not overheat with this CPU


    The concern with overheating was with the new processor I put. The original did not really heat up.



  10. Hello friends, I have a curious problem.


    Since I set up my Hackintosh in October of last year I'm having a strange problem when I use AppleALC.

    Although the sound works perfectly, the screen flashes randomly, as if disconnecting the HDMI cable and reconnecting.


    I put the video below as an example.


    My system works everything perfectly. 4K, Sleep, DRM, etc. Every time I install AppleALC, the screen will blink randomly.


    What I've tried so far:

    - Replace HDMI cable;

    - Tried another HDMI port;

    - Tried another monitor;

    - Use older versions of AppleALC;

    - Started without WhateverGreen;

    - Started without graphics acceleration;

    - Tried others layout-ids;

    - Tested in High Sierra (same issue);

    - Compiled Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext from Sources;


    I also appended the report of my system.


    My configuration:

    - Display: Phillips 288P6L 28" 4K

    - Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z370N-WIFI

    - Processor: Intel i7 8700K

    - Storage: 500GB NVME Samsung 970

    - RAM: 32GB DDR4 2400Mhz

    (It happens at 15 seconds. Note that the screen flashes green quickly)
