  1. Updated Ralink/Mediatek drivers for USB dongles released at 29/11/2013. MAVERICKS AND YOSEMITE COMPATIBLE Drivers downloaded from http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads/usb-rt2870rt2770rt3x7xrt537xrt5572/ I made a zip file with oficial drivers and a preference pane from dlink that replace the oficial ralink wireless utility. This solve the problematic Ralink Wireless Utility that simply does not work on yosemite and the package doesn´t install the maverick kext in yosemite. ZIP CONTENTS DLINK PREFERENCE PANE INSTALATION Copy preference pane to \System\Library\PreferencePanes\ Copy kext for your MacOS version (use Maverick for Yosemite) to folder \System\Library\Extensions\ Repair permissions Rebuild kext cache Reboot.

    Boot/Shutdown problem

    Hello everyone, This is two days I am facing a problem I can not solve . It makes me completely crazy, that's why I implore you for your help. I have a desktop computer that I use for hackintoshing since 2008, I went through all versions of OS X Leopard and since I never had any worries. After all installed (5 or 6 times) , I 've realized that when I turn off the pc I (  > shutdown ) , thereafter it is impossible to restart OS X. The screen remains frozen AFTER boot: init6 with an fixed " underscore ". The only thing is when I can do is to start on my hard drive where Vista is installed (I'll even display password ) and then restart on my hard drive or is OS X, and there is no problem starting ... For cons , I can restart (  > restart ) , sleep or wake up without any problems. I 'm reinstall , change some options, nothing works arghhhh I took screenshots of my console, my Clover configuration and kexts used below. Note: Kexts are too in S/L/E I now have to go, I'll be right on time. Thank you in advance. clover_config_1.tiff clover_config_2.tiff clover_config_3.tiff clover_config_4.tiff clover_config_5.tiff console_log_1.tiff console_log_2.tiff console_log_3.tiff console_log_4.tiff console_log_5.tiff console_log_6.tiff console_log_7.tiff kexts_efi_sle_part.tiff

    Schermo in stop al riavvio

    Salve a tutti! Cercherò di essere breve. Ho installato con successo Mavericks sul mio Lenovo y510p. Tutto ciò che mi interessa funziona alla perfezione. Ho solo uno strano problema al riavvio. Lo schermo rimane spento. Il pc riavvia ma il monitor sembra rimanere in uno stato di stop. Sono certo di quanto vi dico poiché il boot primario del mio pc è su una partizione che contiene Windows 8 ed avendo impostato il suono di avvio (appositamente per verificare se ciò che credevo fosse vero) mi basta aspettare il tempo di caricamento per sentire la musica partire. Non solo, se chiudo il laptop in modo da far entrare il pc in standby e lo riavvio lo schermo torna magicamente a funzionare. Riscontro questo problema da quando sono riuscito ad attivare la scheda Intel HD 4600 integrata tramite GraphicEnablers e IntelAzulFB. Ripeto, il problema è riscontrato solo al riavvio. Se spengo il pc da Mac os x, al riavvio tutto funziona correttamente. Ho cercato per giorni la soluzione a questo problema che inizialmente mi sembrava facile da risolvere, ma non ho trovato riscontro in nessun forum. Vi ringrazio in anticipo per il tempo che deciderete di dedicarmi. Un saluto!
  6. Bonjour, J'essaye d'installer un hackintosh sur l'ordinateur d'un ami. Il a la config suivante : Carte mère MSI Z77a-g45 ICore 7 I-3740-K 8 giga de ddr 3 disque dur SSD Je n'ai pas eu de mal a installer Mavericks. L'installation s'est bien passée. Mais lorsque j'essaye de booter, (après avoir installé chameleon) le boot se passe bien et lorsqu'on arrive sur l'ecran de bureau, ca freeze. (impossible de bouger la souris, on peut juste rebooter). La seule facon de booter sans freeze c'est de booter sur ma clé USB bootable, et de choisir l'option ignore cache. Je dois avoir un Kext manquant ou de trop mais je ne sais pas lequel. J'ai essayé de booter avec les options GraphicsEnabler Yes et No sans succès. Qu'en pensez-vous ? Que devrais-je vérifier ? Merci par avance
  7. Just before we start, this is my first post and also i've seen nobody that have fixed this by using my way and I don't guarantee that this will work for you. If you're just here for the fix just go at the point #2. This is mostly for users using Ethernet Cable and for laptop users which have installed VodooBattery or any other kind of battery patch. DON'T APPLY THIS PATCH IF A CUSTOM AppleACPIPlatform.kext IS NEEDED FOR YOUR HACKINTOSH TO BOOT, IF YOU TRY TO APPLY THIS YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO BOOT AGAIN. I also don't know if this fix also iMessage, Icloud and some others apple apps like these. Also, this things worked for me so I don't see why would this doesn't work with others people but as I only tested it on my laptop, I can't confirm that work everywhere and also if this post was just my personal fix, I will sure delete it after. 1- Bunch of informations: If you are a laptop hackintosh user you've might have installed VoodooBattery or some others fix like these and i've realized that all of these fixes needed to install a rollback of the "AppleACPIPlatform.kext" from Mountain Lion, which allow some users to get their battery meter working. But of some reasons, since the 10.9.2 update, this cause a bug that change somehow my ethernet connection to "Ethernet adapter (en0)" or something like instead of simply "Ethernet". For somehow, Apple Store will block you from connecting if your Ethernet interface is like these. I've found this while working around with my external OS X installation with the same version but I wasn't having the same "AppleACPIPlatform.kext" and the Apple Store was working great. 2 - The fix itself : There's no big deal to fix this problems (Well that's how I fixed mine). First : To know if this fix apply to you here is my internet specs: I'm using ethernet cable. When you try to add a new Ethernet interface inside of the Network Manager, the name of the ethernet interface will be only "Ethernet" and might not be "Ethernet adapter (en0)" or something like that. If you're using Wi-Fi or your Ethernet interface is named only "Ethernet", this patch might not be used at your own risk. (I don't guarantee again that this fix is universal or it is just for me.) Second : Check if you have an edited "AppleACPIPlatform.kext". The best way to do this is by checking his own size inside /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext The original kext is about 627kb. (If your file is that size, that must means that your problems is not coming from this file and maybe you will need to find a another answer.) Also the rollbacked kext is about 1,1mb. Third : You will need to reinstall the original kext from Mavericks. Don't worry, I will post mine on this post but i'm not sure if it's going to work for everyone so you should make a backup first of yours because I have only tested this on my laptop. To install it : You can use "Kext utility" that can be found easily around forums and hackintosh websites and it's free or you can use the manuel method. With Kext Utility: To use it, simply open it, enter your password. and just drag the "AppleACPIPlatform.kext" downloaded from attached files inside the Kext Utility window. And you're done, Kext Utility repair disk permissions by itself so no need to do this. (This method sometime takes a little bit of times so please be patient) Manuel method: (I use this one because of Kext Utility being slows at installation but kinda more complex) Make a backup of /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext to your desktop or whatever you wants. Drag my copy of the kext inside the Extensions folder from above. Enter your password when asked. After installation you will need to repair disk permissions. Repair disk permissions: (If you used the Kext Utility method for installing the kext, you can skip this step) Using Kext Utility: (I use this method) Just launch it, enter your password when prompted and wait for it to be done. Using Disk Utility: (Inside your application/utilities) Open it, click on your hackintosh installation partition and click on the "Repair disk permission" button. Wait while it's doing it (I recommend you to bring Popcorn while using this method, seriously Disk Utilities is taking forever) If you have some problems or don't understand this part, just go look on Google for some Kext installation tutorial, installing kext isn't that easy but if you're looking at this I presume that you have a great understanding of how hackintosh work. Fourth : Reboot your hackintosh and now go check if the App Store is working If it's working well have fun with this! 3- "But what if I wanna have my battery meter working back?" Well as I said before, some users need the ML kext to get their battery meter to works, and that's why I asked you to do a backup of your old one before applying the patch. Just before, I have to tells you there is no kind of patched ML kext for Mavericks, well basically, you can't use this patch and have your battery meter working at the same time. The only way to reactivate your battery meter from using VoodooBattery or AppleSmartBatteryManager (Patched one) is to reinstall it each time you need it. I know, that kind of suck but this isn't that hard to do. All you've got to do is simply do the same step from above but instead of using the Mavericks Kext, use the ML one and it should makes your battery meter works again. But it will also make the App Store and others apps using Apple Account will not work. I'm also working on a simple script that will make you able to switch between the two kexts when the needs is here. I recommend using the Mavericks kext only when you needs to do update or install new apps from the App Stores and then switch back to the old one after. Thanks you everyone from reading it, also sorry again for my bad english, my main language is French Canadian and I hope that this will help some of you! If you have any kind of problems or you can't understand this post, just ask in the comments below or contact me via pm or Skype. AppleACPIPlatform.kext.zip
  8. Hello, Can anyone please explain if is possible to run IOS Mavericks on older Mac Pro's?. I have a 2,1 Mac Pro model. Thanks for the responses.
  9. Anyone get their USB 3.0 Expresscard to work with Mavericks?

I'm just concerned I've read conflicting reports of it working or not. Anyone brave enough to venture through and get it up and running ?
  10. Hello everyone, I managed to install Mavericks onto my system. The problem is that it can only boot in safe mode, the audio is not working and the graphics are "flickery" when something is moving on the screen. Is there a way to fix these issues? Or can someone help me configure a DSDT? Here are my specs of the hackintosh : - Intel i5-3570K - nvidia GTX650 - 8 gb ddr3 ram - 60 gb SSD Thanks everyone!
  11. My old G5 PowerPC has finally received a new breath of live with a brand new Intel i7-4770K on a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC motherboard. Need not say that it runs like a dream even without overclocking, which of course was expected considering how slow the old system was. Ubuntu installed without a glitch - hands down this is the better OS, but I do need OS X installed too. Here, the following problem emerged - in order to install the latest Mavericks, I need MacOS 10.6.8 or above. The old hard drive still has the 10.4.1 for PowerPC, which is of no use. Do I really need to install Snow Leopard or Mountain Lion before installing Mavericks? Can I use another Mac do donwoload Mavericks and create installation USB flash drive without installing an older OS first? My guess is that this problem has appeared here before as G5 mods are common. ps - the G5 mod looks brilliant and I'm very pleased with it. Totally worth the time and money spent and is a lot of fun too. Will post some pictures when I get the optical and hard drives installed and running.

  14. Hi, after a few KP's i managed to get my fresh Mavericks 10.9.4 system working relatively smoothly, but i'm not really sure about Power Management, Speedstep, C-States,P-States etc and also Wake from Sleep is broken. (No video signal on wake). I don't really know about patching my motherboard etc. Couldn't find any pre-made patches. Also i don't really understand whether i need SSDT or DSDT (apparently not the latter for UEFI Mobo?) and I don't know how i test eg C-States, P-States etc or what I need them for. One thing that's a possible "issue" is the Corsair H80i, attached to the Mobo via mini-usb. there's no controller software for OSX obviously. When I had a 10.9 Mavericks working with Sleep, it would wake itself up immediately with GLAN EHC2. This may have been the USB connection on the fan forcing it to wake up but not sure. Currently though Wake is broken as mentioned, so I can't just test that issue by unplugging the USB at the moment) any advice & links would be gratefully appreciated. Presumably first step would be to fix the system to be able to remove NullCPUPowerManagement? thanks J Mavericks 10.9.4 (from App Store) myHack installer myHack AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement patch NullCPUPowerManagement.kext myHack TRIM patch kernel flags: npci=0x2000 dart=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes Realtek81xx kext for ethernet (or might be using EthernetBuiltIn=Yes... not sure, as both present) Envy24 audio drivers for m-audio Audiophile2496 Chameleon NVFileRam kext for iMessage fix --- Motherboard: Asus P8B75-V (UEFI) CPU: i7 3770 GPU: Zotac GT210 Cooler: Corsair H80i SSD: Samsung EVO840 250GB

    I installed the Mavericks (10.9.2) in the GA-H61M-S1 but I'm having problems with the video driver and sound. Can anyone help me?
  16. Version


    This is a patched version of an official vanilla mach_kernel from Mavericks 10.9.5 after Security Update 2015-004 1.0, allowing Z87 Haswell motherboards with reboot loops or kernel panics capable of booting. The following perl scripts have been applied to the vanilla mach_kernel for 10.9.5 after Security Update 2015-004 1.0: #1 perl -pi -e 's|\x74\x6c(\x48\x83\xc7\x28\x90\x8b\x05..\x5e\x00\x85\x47\xdc)\x74\x54(\x8b\x4f\xd8\x45\x85\xc0\x74\x08\x44\x39\xc1\x44\x89\xc1)\x75\x44(\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x57\xf8\x48\x8b\x47\xe8\x48\x85\xc0\x74\x06\x48\xf7\xd0\x48\x21\xc2\x48\x0b\x57\xf0\x49\x89\xd1\x49\xc1\xe9\x20\x89\xd0\x8b\x4f\xd8\x4c\x89\xca)(\x0f\x30\x8b\x4f\xd8\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x17\x48\x83\xc7\x30\xff\xce)\x75\x99(\x5d\xc3)\x90{7}|\x74\x73${1}\x74\x5b${2}\x75\x4b${3}\x66\x81\xf9\xe2\x00\x74\x02${4}\x75\x92${5}|g' mach_kernel #2 perl -pi -e 's|(\x25\x1c\x00\x00\x00\x48\x8d\x0d..\x5e\x00\x3b\x01)\x74(\x11\x48\x8d\x3d...\x00\x44)|${1}\xeb${2}|g' mach_kernel I take no credit for the creation of the perl scripts used.

  17. Hi, I'm sharing this information for X58a-UD3R users, hoping that it could help someone. Since mavericks installation last year, my rig (X58a-UD3R with latest BIOS FH, I7-950, dual HD7950) had garbled audio and sound cutoff . Switching from patched HDA to VoodooHDA didn't help. I got used to it and tought it would be fixed with Yosemite... Recently, my rig crashed while exiting sleep mode, so badly that after a few reboot attemps, the system displayed a text message explaining that the mobo was reverting to backup BIOS due to main BIOS corruption The backup version was so old that I couldn't boot using Clover anymore, so I had to flash a more recent one. Integrated flashing utility (Q-Flash) doesn't allow a >1MB BIOS, so I chose the very last one smaller than 1MB : version FF The system got bootable again using Clover and to my great surprise, the audio problems are gone. The problem with BIOS version FH (latest) is that it adds "Dolby Home Theater PCEEv4 support". I think it should be avoided. It may be possible to fix the issue using a DSDT patch, but it's far beyond my knowledge . I'll give a try to BIOS version FG1 (second to last) once I reboot to Windows, but for now, I'm keeping v. FF. Bye. Edit 2014/09/11: typo

    Can I install Mavericks on this pc?

    Hello, I heard a lot about installing Mac os X Mavericks on AMD machines. But I don't know of I can run that on my pc. My PC is custom build this year in August. My specs are: 8 GB DDR3 Memory from Corsair AMD A8-5600K processor 3.6 GHz ASRock FM2A75M Pro4-M Motherboard WIFI Card Do you think I can run Mac os? Thank a lot for helping me, Daan
  19. Hardware: Lenovo IdeaPad u460 - 2.4GHz dual core 1st gen Core i5 (520M?) Well, I ordered the Atheros 9285 WIFI/BT Combo card from China, turns out I didn't even need it. This IdeaPad is second hand, so it may have been modified, but it came with Atheros AR9285 WIFI and Broadcom 2070 Bluetooth. I had to be very careful removing AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext before each boot and after each update, as it contains 1st-gen Intel HD Graphics (IronLake). Installer and boot settings: busratio=15 GraphicsEnabler=Yes I used the excellent guide for 1st Gen Intel HD Graphics QE/CI -> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286092-guide-1st-generation-intel-hd-graphics-qeci/ I used the typical defaults, and it worked great first try. Full vRAM, QE/CI/GL and resolutions. NICE! I already had patched IO80211.kext for AR9285 from a previous laptop install, so used that. It is a simple Info.plist edit with new Vendor/Device ID. Info on the 9285 patch is readily available with a simple Google search. Bluetooth BCM2070 edit is available online. It works occasionally without the edit, but works ALL THE TIME with the edit. I believe I found it on a Russian Hackintosh site. I can provide the details if needed (or the kext). Ethernet = Atheros 8131, downloaded the latest driver for L1XEthernet, edited matching 8131 section with new Device/Vendor IDs. Ethernet working. Have 100% brightness all the time, no brightness slider, this could be fixed with a custom DSDT. No Sleep/Wake - this could be fixed with a custom DSDT. Sound hotkeys (and most hotkeys, except brightness) working. Sound is ALC262, so only solution for me was VoodooHDA 2.8.7 (sound is pretty crappy, want to find Taruga's AppleHDA patcher, and see if it still works). Headphone jack works. HDMI audio out listed. HDMI - Untested, but VGA out is definitely possible. No mirroring with these graphics, but possible switchable screens with HDMI. That's it for now, about 95% functional IdeaPad. This one is a project for a friend. I upped the 2x1GB DDR3 to 2x2GB DDR3 for a bit more elbow room RAM-wise. It may be my old 500GB recycled external USB HDD, now internal, but max link speed is only 1.5Gb/s, which I was not expecting. If anyone else has tried this model, or knows of a custom DSDT file, I would be very interested in hearing about it. Many thanks, and happy Hackintoshing !!!

    Mavericks em Phitronics PN73VS-M

    Olá gente. Estou tentando instalar o Mavericks na minha placa mãe: Phitronics PN73VS-M. Só que o problema é que toda vez que eu faço um pendrive bootável (Retail ou Niresh) ele reinicia antes de entrar na tela da maçã. Ja tentei o Niresh versão USB, ja fiz com a imagem Retail do Mavericks, usando o myHack, e continua a mesma coisa. Sendo que o Niresh USB, nem boot dá. Dai, mandaram eu ver a se BIOS se estava correta, só que o problema é que a maioria das opções, não tem na minha BIOS. Segue as imagens da minha BIOS. Peço a ajuda de voces para configurar minha BIOS e conseguir dar boot USB pra instalar o Mavericks e posteriormente configura-lo.

  23. I am trying to install 10.9.4 Mavericks on My EasyNote TE69BM and it is proving difficult, I am either stuck at the Apple Logo Post-Installation or in -x and -v PCIRootUID=0 I am stuck at loading drivers and sometimes or Root uuid *********-*******-****** Something along those lines I have made a lot of progress since I have only started on this project i.e. I have learn't a lot of boot flags (but none of them are really working :/ ) So the boot flags I have used are the following below; PCIRootUID=1 and 0 GraphicsEnabler=No and Yes -x / -s / -v / -f ----------------------------------- Most of them together but some not I probably have used lots more but thats what I can think I have used the most ....

  24. 1st Hackintosh ever! single hpxw8600 Xeon QC X5450 3.0Ghz 4gb Ram Settings -turned off all virtualization in BIOS -enabled combined SATA/IDE mode in BIOS -video worked with Graphics Enabler=Yes. -used an old version of BCM5722d for network. Having issues with connection dropping under heavy load, but I noticed an upgrade to the kext might fix that. -used latest voodoohda for sound. Issues: -tried with "separate ide controller setting" in BIOS first. Would only see IDE Hd. apparently mobo doesn't support full AHCI mode, and I can only get OS to see 1 sata hd in combined SATA/IDE mode. No fix yet, but working on it -had to apply the voodoohda half volume fix in .plist -used bootloader, had connection issues with imessage server. used chameleon wizard to fix -as mentioned above, broadcom nic drops connection under heavy load (bittorrent in particular), requires reboot. Will apply upgrade which will hopefully address this issue. Thank you to all those who have gone before and simplified this process so much. And to all the coders and testers, I appreciate all of effort and keep up the good work! If anyone wants further detail about specs, settings or issues, I can be more specific if needed. A side note: HP workstations are readily available on ebay, as companies upgrade and sell off excess inventory. I would highly recommend the xw8600, although others with different xeon cpu's including dual configurations might work just as well. I plan to add a 2nd cpu to my configuration, but am having trouble locating one with the exact stepping i need.
