What works and what does not - Processor: Intel Core i5-4300M -> Work. All SpeedStep stages.- Video Card: Intel HD4600 -> Work. QE/CI and Metal.- Chipset: Intel QM87 -> Work.- Mini DisplayPort -> Work. But no audio, yet. - VGA -> Not work. Normal. - Audio: ALC292 -> Work. - WiFi/Bluetooth: Intel AC 7260 -> Not work. Replaced with DW1560 (need whitelist removal). - Ethernet: Intel I217-LM -> Work. - Card Reader: Realtek RTS5227 -> Not work. - Keyboard and Touchpad -> Work.- Webcam -> Work. - Fingerprint Reader -> Not work. Normal. - USB3.0 -> Work.- Sleep -> Work. - Airdrop, Handoff, Instant Hotspot and Continuity -> Work after replaced wireless. Extras - FullHD 1920x1080 display upgrade: Replaced with AU Optronics B140HAN01.1 30pin eDP (B140HAN01.2 and B140HAN01.3 also compatible). Apparently same screen as Dell Latitude E6440, E7440, Lenovo Ideapad U430 and E129. - CPU upgrade: Replaced the stock Intel Core i5 4300M 2.6Ghz (3.3Ghz turbo) 6M cache with Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4Ghz (3.4Ghz turbo) 6MB. I initially had problems with overheating. The processor ran at full load above 90 degrees. After using a quality thermal paste I can work between 70 and 80 degrees. Acceptable taking into consideration that the new processor has 47TDP versus 37TDP which is recommended. I also had no problem consuming the battery while charging. The original 65W source seems to have figured out. - Touchpad upgrade: Replaced the stock with T460 touchpad. This is serious: you have to do it! It should be stock. Touchpad with precision and absurd quality! Just do it! - RAM upgrade: No mistery here. Just upgade. Todo - Make DP audio work. - Make Card Reader work. - Upgrade CPU to i7-4712MQ (Ordered. It's on the way) Done, but received i7-4700MQ (47w TDP, with good paste I have no overheating) - Replace touchpad with T460 model (Ordered. It's on the way) Done. Sensitivity and perception of quality much better. I recommend 100%! - Sierra Gobi5000 4G LTE modem EM7355 (Ordered. It's on the way. I hope works. ) Done, but not work. Recognize but not connect. I already gave up... - Upgrade to 16GB RAM Done - Make trackpad appear in System Preferences What you need to install- Running install of macOS- One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger- macOS Mojave install app- Clover EFI - Clover Configurator - Some KEXTs and SSDT patchesHow create create the install flash drive Prepare install flash drive Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".- Open Disk Utility.- Click in View, then "Show All Devices".- Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.- Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map Create install flash driveOpen terminal and run this command: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction This will take about 30 minutes.

Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z) Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS. If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error: 1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it. But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem: - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be. - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer. So what you need to do: 1. Disassembly your laptop; 2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard); 3. Patch it (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu); 4. Fix RSA signature; 5. Reflash BIOS; 6. Replace wireless card; 7. Remount your laptop; 8. Done. Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week. In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you. I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc. To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR) After replaced the wireless card.

I used the version 1.1.2. Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess). How install UEFI Setup Configuration and InstallationUEFI configuration My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.- Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.- Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes - Save & Exit Setup (F10) - Now, hold the F12 - In the list, select your flash drive. The installer will start. Format destination diskFormat the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".- Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.- Click in View, then "Show All Devices".- Select the destination Disk, then Erase.- Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition MapClose Disk Utility.Select "Install macOS", then Continue.Follow instructions in screen.After installAfter first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes. Post installationInstall bootloader When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your destination disk EFI parittion, with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.If the flash drive EFI partition of your destination disk or flash drive is unmounted: Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 0 for destination disk and 1 for flash drive. Then, eject the flash drive. Last step Move all Kexts from EFI partition to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal: sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system. It's done! Updates System update 10.14.3 - Updated with success; - Everything works perfectly after reboot; System update 10.14.4 - Updated Clover to 4910. - Updated Lilu.kext to 1.3.5 and WhateverGreen to 1.2.7. - After first reboot the update progress stoped with: GTrace synchronization point 4 Unsupported CPU Unsupported PCH hmm.. mismatch sizes: 3100 vs 20 It was still possible to start the previous installation, selecting "Macintosh" as opposed to "macOS Install" in Clover. So I created a flash drive with Clover 4910 and put only my config.xml, SSDT-L440.aml, the updated Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext. And I decided to test VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.kext. With this I was able to install update 10.14.4. After installation I can boot normally, even with FakeSMC.kext that already in /Library/Extensions. I do not know what exactly happened, but now works everything like was previously. System update 10.14.5 - Updated Clover to 4934. - Updated Lilu.kext to 1.3.6 and WhateverGreen to 1.2.9. - After first reboot the update progress stoped again (like 10.14.4 update) with: GTrace synchronization point 4 Unsupported CPU Unsupported PCH hmm.. mismatch sizes: 3100 vs 20 It was still possible to start the previous installation, selecting "Macintosh" as opposed to "macOS Install" in Clover. I decided to rollback to FakeSMC.kext but this time with the version of HWSensors 3. Link above. With this I was able to install update 10.14.5. After installation I can boot normally.

  4. hello yall! i was lucky enough to get maldon help for this asus h97m-e/csm build with a core i5 4440 and 16GB ddr3 (MSI GeForce GT710 2GB)...was updatable till 10.14.3...but i got the update to 10.14.4 right when it was available, n it didn't work...everything booted nicely, but after verbose i got a black screen, just like the one i got with mojave/high sierra when i didn't had the latest smc... i think it might be that, the fakesmc, but i couldn't tell if it aint the nvidia graphics board...nvidia is now out of hackintosh game i guess...but this gt710 is very compatible, n i don't think they changed the requirements in the middle of a build... also now on 10.14.3 i can't log to App Store...dont know why, cause i was checkin that app on the daily, n never got a problem under 14.3 (i can log in iTunes and books, seems there's a problem with 14.3 for App Store i didn't realize before) everything is nice besides that, n i whipped the drive n reinstalled mojave, then i updated to 14.3 with the update combo dmg from apple...i can only think of your help guys, since the fakesmc´s didn't update no mo lately (rehabman´s)...
  5. Hi, is Qualcomm Atheros AR956x compatible with MacOS Mojave 10.14.3?
  6. I am a novice in the field of Hackintosh, and this is my first post here. I have managed to setup and install my hackintosh and it is perfectly working other than this one issue. I am unable to figure the exact cause of this issue. My Hackintosh is unable to go into sleep mode after the set time. This is what happens (see the attached video file). mojavesleep.mp4 You can see that the screen turns off, then I see the power on the graphics card and fans turn off. Immediately it comes back ON and the screen TURN's ON. I have followed various threads in several forums trying various options suggested for sleep related issue, but have been un-successful. If anyone is able to guide me through in resolving this issue, I would appreciate that. I am unsure what files need to be attached for you people to help me, feel free to ask and I shall upload the necessary files.

    Ottimizzazione Hackintosh Asus

    Ciao ragazzi, alla fine sono riuscito a risolvere il problema che riscontravo qualche mese fa, dopo l'ottima EFI sistemata da @gengik84 e l'ho risolto rimuovendo dart=0 che creava kernel panic e problemi quando la batteria scendeva sotto ad un livello di batteria basso. Adesso il sistema non crea più problemi di kernel panic, ma volevo chiedervi se allo stato attuale secondo voi c'è qualcos'altro da ottimizzare. Vi allego la EFI. Grazie anticipatamente. CLOVER.zip
