  2. Hi, first of all let me introduce a bit myself. I am software developer, I learnt programming in Java and I also learnt Android developing and Python. Now quite recently I'm interested in C++, because it is an object-oriented compiled language so it is the best when performance comes to play. So my main interest in hackintosh is for developing/experimenting. I will tell you more about it below, but now here I will drop some doubts/questions that I have about hackintoshing. First, I have already researched a bit about my hardware and I think I will be fine. This is my build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/m2p7rH Note that I didn't had planned to install OS X on it, but I think I was lucky enough to get a fairly compatible hardware. Now here comes an important question. There are any good alternatives to tonymacx86 beasts? Why do I need them? https://tkware.info/2013/01/27/hypocrisy-thy-name-is-tonymacx86/ http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/278907-permanently-banned-from-tonymacx86/ I prefer to do not use their crapware. I was lucky enough to get a copy of both programs from a nice user on Reddit. But I'm not sure whether is it a good idea to use them or not. I know that you can directly use Clover to create a bootable drive, but... What is the difference between that and the "magic" of the tonymacx86 tool? Now I should mention that my goal is to triple boot Windows, Ubuntu and OS X. Can you give me some advice? From here I will describe more deeply my motivations to hackintoshing. Well I mentioned that my purposes were mainly for developing. More specifically I'm interested on iOS Development (obviously) but instead of developing "native" applications maybe I will try Oracle's Mobile Application Framework (Ha! Surely you didn't saw that coming) specially because I could use my favourite IDE, Eclipse. But my developing interest doesn't end here. Since I will develop eventually some C++ applications I would like to create multiple distributions for different platforms, including Mac OS X. Even if I make them open source, so anyone could compile them. Because an official distribution is almost always more trustful than the non-official ones, and of course the end user may not know how to properly compile the application. Besides the developing interest I just would like to experiment and learn. Jesus! Apple is obsessed with the Command key(Yeah I already installed OS X on VMs, more specifically on Virtualbox), you need it for common shortcuts such us copy & paste. Which is very funny since the Windows key is almost useless. But becomes the Command key on Hackintosh and the Super key on Ubuntu. And last, but not least. Having a machine with the 3 main OSes should make you feel like you have a machine to rule them all. ( ) Sorry, this took longer than expected, I would be very happy if read the full post.

    Version 2.0.1


    Since the repairPermissions verb was discarded in the new DiskManagement.framework of OS X El Capitan, I wrote a new version of RepairPermissions command line tool. Introduction: RepairPermissions is an easy command line tool to repair the permissions of an OS X system volume. It also supports repairing permissions on OS X El Capitan's whole disk. Supported OS: OS X El Capitan (10.11.x) OS X Yosemite (10.10.x) OS X Mavericks (10.9.x) Usage: RepairPermissions targetVolume where targetVolume is a valid mount point of an OS X system partition such as /Volumes/Mac Bugs Report: You are welcome to report bugs or give any suggestions on my blogs. http://www.firewolf.science/2015/07/repairpermissions-v2-0-cli/ Notes: 0. RepairPermissions should be placed at /usr/local/bin (especially under OS X El Capitan) if you want to use RepairPermissions directly from OS X' Terminal. 1. You can ONLY repair the permissions on the current root volume if RepairPermissions is used in single-user mode. 2. Feel free to rename it to a shorter name like rp. 3. TABLES: ALLOWED OPERATIONS (In general: You can ONLY repair the permissions on OS X El Capitan under OS X El Capitan.)

    AppleHDA for El Capitan discussion

    I tried to install OS X El Capitan on my PC and laptop, and so far everything seems to work fine. However, AppleHDA sound driver may become problematic on desktop. Brief hardware configurations: PC: i3-530/MSI H55M-P32/GTX460/RTL8111D/ALC888 Laptop: i3-380M/ASUS H55/AMD6370M/BCM4322/CX20585 I made a new patched driver based on native AppleHDA driver on 10.11 DB1, and my CX20585 works fine. However, when I tried to patch ALC888, I found that some codec ids such as 0x10EC0855 0x11D41984 are missing.(My bad) So it seems that AppleHDA binary has changed a lot. I reinstalled an old version (OS X 10.10.3) of AppleHDA.kext and ALC888 worked again. So is there anyone who make their desktop audio work properly by using 10.11 DB1's AppleHDA? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Update 1 @ 2015.06.10 OK, I solved my ALC888 audio issue. Apple added a new codec id 0x11D41983 in AppleHDA binary. If you are replacing 0x11D41984 with your codec id, please make sure that you disable 0x11D41983 codec. (Thanks to @lisai9093) You can either modify the binary by Hex Editor or use Clover's KextsToPatch. Name AppleHDA Find 8319D411 Replace 00000000 I modified toleda's audioALC script to support OS X 10.11 and I can confirm it works for ALC888 on OS X El Capitan. Update 2 @ 2015.06.15 new patch-hda script with OS X 10.11 supported: 41F by pokenguyen. new audio_RealtekALC script with OS X 10.11 supported: 42F by me. Note that Intel HD Graphics 4600 HDMI Audio in 10.11 is not supported by this script. I don't have HD4600 now so I cannot test whether the previous patch is still working. If you have HD4600, you can try it and post a feedback. Thanks in advance.
  6. KCPM Utility Pro V5 ★ Install Kexts ★ Repair Permissions ★ Rebuild Caches ★ Configure SIP/BooterConfig and more Introduction: KCPM Utility Pro is a 6-in-1 system maintenance tool written in Swift that supports installing kexts, repairing permissions, rebuilding caches, configuring system integrity protection (SIP), setting up BooterConfig and more. And yes, it fully supports Apple’s latest OS X El Capitan. Supported Languages: English, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Japanese (More languages are coming, please have a look at the Localization section below.) Supported OS X Version: OS X El Capitan (10.11.x) OS X Yosemite (10.10.x) (Unfortunately, OS X Mavericks is not supported by KCPM Utility Pro due to that some Swift methods are not available under OS X 10.9.x) Key Features: Install Kexts to /Library/Extensions. (*1) Install Kexts to /System/Library/Extensions. Install Kexts to /Extra/Extensions. Show Kexts version, path and more. Backup Kexts that will be replaced. (*2) Rebuild System and Kernel Caches. Repair Permissions of the whole system partition. (even under OS X El Capitan!!) Configure SIP (*5) and BooterConfig via either NVRAM (*3) or your bootloader configuration. (Clover & Chameleon supported) (*4) Install Command Line Tools that allow you easily maintain your OS X in Terminal/Single-user mode/OS X Recovery and more. Support Auto-Update. Support Real Macs, Hackintosh Builds (Clover, Chameleon, Ozmosis) Support Drag-N-Drop Function (Starting from V3.3) EZMode (*6) - Express Kexts Installation Mode that helps you install kexts, repair permissions and rebuild caches without your attendance. (Starting from V5.0) Support custom kexts backup folder. (Starting from V5.0) *1. It is recommended to install kernel extensions to /Library/Extensions under OS X El Capitan. *2. Default backup folder is ~/Desktop/FireWolf_Kexts_Backups/$time/. *3. It is required that NVRAM is supported on your builds. *4. The default icon will be changed to indicate which bootloader configuration you have selected. (See screenshots below) *5. Special Notes: Apple has blocked modifying restricted areas in NVRAM. You may no longer set new SIP value directly via NVRAM, BooterConfig is stilled supported though. *6. EZMode is disabled by default. You may enable it in the new preference panel of KCPM Utility Pro. When the EZMode is enabled, the normal “Select” and “Execute” buttons will be disabled automatically. Localization Support: This part will be updated soon. (I will upload the new localization strings.) Known Issues in V5.1: The status indicator may be reset if user switch to other tabs when a certain task is being executed. (e.g. Rebuilding Caches, Repairing Permissions.) However, the task would be still executed at the background and user will finally receive a task finished alert. Workaround: Do not switch to other tabs when an operation is being executed. Bugs Report: You are welcome to leave comments related to BUGS on my blog. Also feel free to ask questions if you are confused or encounter with problems. Sceenshots: Update Logs V5.1 @ 2016.02.20 PDT Add an option in the preference panel that allows you to silence the SIP->B1 warning at the startup of the program. (Note that even though you can silence this warning, if your SIP->B1 is still disabled, the “Install Kexts to /System/Library/Extensions” will remain greyed out, because that’s the security policy created by Apple in OS X El Capitan.) Fix some localization related issues. V5.0 @ 2016.02.19 PDT New EZMode function in the Kexts Installation interface. With EZMode enabled, now you only need to drag the kernel extensions and KCPM Utility Pro will help you install them, repair permissions, and rebuild caches without your involvement. Add a preference panel where you can select custom kexts backup folder and enable the new EZMode. Significantly improve user experience. KCPM Utility Pro will no longer be unresponsive. Significantly improve the efficiency of repairing permissions and rebuilding caches. Sparkle auto-updater framework updated to address security vulnerabilities. Significantly improve the error handling mechanism. Fix an issue that history folder is not saved after the program terminates. Significantly improve the security level of the entire program. Resolve an issue that some labels are not displayed correctly. Address an issue that kexts cannot be installed into non-root volumes properly. Installing kexts into /S/L/E will be automatically disabled when SIP->Allow unrestricted file system access is disabled. V3.3 @ 2015.11.01 23:00 PDT Fix an issue that application is not responding when user closes the window. Resolve an issue that duplicated kernel extensions are allowed in the list. Resolve an issue that “Select” button allows selecting any files. Resolve an issue that internal data failed to update when user deletes kernel extensions from the list. Fix an issue that backup folder is created even though no kernel extension needs backup. Rewrite the kexts backup method to improve efficiency. Add Drag-and-Drop function in the Kexts Installation interface. Now you can directly drag kernel extensions into KCPM Utility Pro V3.3. V3.2 @ 2015.10.17 18:00 PDT Resolve an issue that rebuilding caches may not function properly. Minor bugs fixed. Update the integrated RebuildCaches CLT to V1.4. Update the integrated RepairPermissions CLT to V2.1. V3.1 @ 2015.10.12 22:00 PDT Improve error handling when reading NVRAM. V3.0 @ 2015.10.12 18:00 PDT Initial Pro version release.

  7. A new version of Skylake integrated graphics driver was included in the latest OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 update. Some "restrictions" (checking pci ids of Broadwell's IGPUs) have been removed from the AppleIntelFramebufferController::start() method. So basically your Skylake's IGPUs could be working now. - Some Remarks Should you have kernel panic like minStolenSize <= fStolenMemorySize, you could avoid it by: Either (1) Applying the patch Name: AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer Find 4139C476 Replace 4139C477 (Note that you should NOT use this patch if your DVMT pre-allocated memory in your BIOS settings is already >= 64MB) Or (2) Applying the patch (Thanks to Rehabman) Name: AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer Find: 4139c4762a Replace: 4139c4eb2a or (3) you could modify the DVMT pre-allocated memory in your BIOS settings to 64MB or 96MB. (SUGGESTED) (Note that this method is suggested especially when you have a laptop with high resolution screen) Assertion failed: minStolenSize <= fStolenMemorySize I will keep updating this post. Looking forward to some successful cases. Cheers, FireWolf
