    Finally I have succeeded in running this laptop as a MacBookPro. Partly by luck, mostly by very hard work. I have used the method described on Mackintosh.zone using the distro of Niresh for Yosemite 10.10. After installing from an USB stick I have changed the following: Installed the following kext's AppleACPIPlatform.kext version 1.3.6 AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext version unknown ApplePS2Controller.kext version 1.1.5 Removed VoodooPS2Controller.kext, VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext. VoodooPS2Mouse.kext and VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext. Repaired permissions, rebuild the cache Generated a ssdt according to the script of Pike R Alpha Did NOT use a DSDT! Smbios.plist as a MacBookPro 8,1 Used a org. chameleon.Boot.plist as attached. Rebooted and voila; Everything seems to be fine: Keyboard, mouse, trackpad, sleepmode, wifi (DWA-140 adapter, Ralink driver), appstore, audio, video and so on. Even the function keys are okay. ​ org.chameleon.Boot.plist.zip
  2. Olá galera!! Em primeiro lugar gostaria de parabenizar o trabalho de vocês, eu imagino o quanto deve ser bom responder com eficácia esses fóruns sobre Hackintosh! Vamos lá possuo este notebook: http://www.fastshop....RF411SD2,0.aspx Samsung RF 411 SD2 CPU I3 SandyBridge 2310m Nvidia Gt540m + IntelHD3000 (Optimus) 4GB Ram Consigo instalar tudo corretamente. Após entrar no sistema, eu me deparo com muitas dúvidas para instalar as Kexts, e realmente eu fui testando o que achava correto, principalmente em relação ao bootloader. Ok quando vou reiniciar, o sistema aparece os HD's instalados, e quando seleciono a partição do Mac, ás vezes dá KP, ou trava na parte de NTFS 3.10 ou ainda no ETHERNET ADDRESS. Se eu utilizar o pendrive de boot ele liga normal realmente estou com essa dificuldade. Outra coisa foi o áudio também, pesquisei muito e outro fórum na Web, consegui instalar o VoodooHDA 2.72 e desabilitei a AppleHDA, mas quando o sistema começa a iniciar, o som faz um chiado terrível (Creio que seja por causa do microfone...) Também descobri que poderia usar o DSDT para executar o áudio nativo, apliquei um hack para RF411 que tem no Oralila porém não houve muita diferença, a não ser que não consigo desligar ou reiniciar o sistema (pode ser o DSDT)... Patch RF411: http://pastebin.com/Da3bQruS Segue aqui uma imagem do SystemInfo para visualização dos Hardwares e compatibilidade: Meu Dsdt para vocês darem uma olhada: http://www.sendspace.com/file/kv34n9 Gostaria de pedir sugestões de instalação, dicas e ideias que vocês tiverem, também ajudarei ao máximo aqui! Grato!!
  3. Hello folks! GUIDE UPDATED - Added support for 10.10 XCPM kernel First of all it is very good that we have an updated version of Chameleon, so please take this most updated version right here in the official thread: http://www.insanelym...ameleon-22-svn/ Since 10.7.4 for CPUs and SandyBridger IvyBridger P and C States - that are responsible for the proper functioning of energy - are no longer provided by Chameleon, in others words, only activate GeneratePStates and GenerateCStates doesn't work any more. A quick exit is to use the kext NullCPUPowermanagement, but I don't recommend continued use of this kext because it disables AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement kext which is responsible for power management The most viable and recommended solution that will give to you a good power management is the creation of a SSDT which will contain all P-States and C-States. Step-by-Step Creating the SSDT Create your SSDT based on the script Pike R. Alpha Run these commands in terminal curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/master/ssdtPRGen.sh chmod +x ssdtPRGen.sh ./ssdtPRGen.sh After you run it you need to put the Maximum Frequency and Maximum TDP of your CPU ... see these information about your CPU in here: http://ark.intel.com/ This is an example of one i7 2600 that has 3800MHz(3.8 Ghz) of maximum frequency and 95 of TDP sudo ./ssdtPRGen.sh 3800 95 Place the SSDT in Extra folder and rename ssdt_pr for SSDT Note: Some CPUs are auto-detected by the script, the script just now detects the maximum frequency and TDP, so if simply after running the first command you are prompted to save the SSDT in Extra folder(not asking to enter your max frequenc. and TDP as the guide teach),don't worry about it, just to confirm, because the script already detected everything and created the SSDT and the time is already asking to save the file. Patch AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement In older mobos is necessary to patch the kext AICPUPM to enable recording in Bios, otherwise you will get a kernel panic because it can't write to the Bios ... Download the patch: AICPUPMpatch Run in terminal cd ~/Downloads/AICPMPatch Just find and list ... sudo perl AICPMPatch.pl /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement Then give patch in wrmsr to enable recording in Bios sudo perl AICPMPatch.pl /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement --patch After that you need to update the cache sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions Kernel Patch for Haswell CPU(Kernel XCPM) Since version 10.8.5 a new kernel was implemented on OSX, he called XNU kernel(XNU CPU Power Management(xcpm)). This kernel has the power management moved down into it, in past we used AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement kext to control power management and some Bios were lockeds, in others words, were not allowed to write information on it, so the patch was created for kext AICPUPM to solve this problem (see above how to patch the kext AICPUPM). But with the power management moved down into the kernel(XNU kernel) AICPUPM the kext isn't loaded and so the same mistake that we were having in the past with AICPUPM kext(Kernel Panic)are having now with the XNU kernel in some models CPU haswell(mainly in portable models, some Desktop models doesn't need patch) To solve this problem it is necessary to patch the kernel. For 10.10 you need Open the terminal and type: cd /Volumes/Name of your HDD/System/Library/Kernels/ Note that in 10.10 kernel directory was changed. Copy this perl code is for 10.10 version, put line by line sudo perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel sudo perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel sudo perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|g' kernel For 10.9.x and 10.8.5 you need run this command in terminal: cd /Volumes/Name of your HDD/ Now copy this perl code if you use version 10.9.x sudo 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${5}|g' mach_kernel or that other perl code if you use version 10.8.5 sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x74\x69(\x48\x83\xc7\x28\x90\x8b\x05\xfe\xce\x5f\x00\x85\x47\xdc)\x74\x51(\x8b\x4f\xd8\x45\x85\xc0\x74\x05\x44\x39\xc1)\x75\x44(\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x57\xf8\x48\x8b\x47\xe8\x48\x85\xc0\x74\x06\x48\xf7\xd0\x48\x21\xc2\x48\x0b\x57\xf0\x49\x89\xd1\x49\xc1\xe9\x20\x89\xd0\x8b\x4f\xd8\x4c\x89\xca)(\x0f\x30\x8b\x4f\xd8\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x17\x48\x83\xc7\x30\xff\xce)\x75\x9c(\x5d\xc3)\x90{7}(\x90{3})|\x74\x70${1}\x74\x58${2}\x75\x4b${3}\x66\x81\xf9\xe2\x00\x74\x02${4}\x75\x95${5}${6}|g' mach_kernel Finally update the cache sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions Ready! XCPM patched kernel and is working perfectly on your CPU haswell Note1: XCPM only works in Ivy Bridge and Haswell CPUs, and the CPUs Ivy Bridger use by default the power management given by AICPUPM kext, to use the power management provided by the kernel XCPM you must enable this flag(Chameleon)/argument(Clover): -xcpm Haswell CPUs use XCPM management by default and doesn't change.The management XCPM not support CPUs Sandy Bridger, so who uses SB can stay quiet about it. Note2: Even Patching the kernel XCPM, you will need to patch the kext AICPUPM if your BIOS is locked for writing. Note3: If you have no problem with KP, it isn't necessary to patch the kernel, but in some cases, helped to patch the kernel to add some energy states. Note4: Clover bootloader already has this patched built-in, you just need edit config.plist to enableir it <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>KernelPm</key> <true/> </dict> So, if you enable it in Clover isn't necessary patch kernel, because Clover will make this for you Final adjustments To make the Chameleon recognize your SSDT, enable DropSSDT in org.chameleon <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> Don't install the NullCPUPM and don't enable P and C States in org.chameleon ... Don't forget to create a DSDT in future to help the power management Note: For those who are having difficulty with power management ... take a look to see if the kexts: X86PlatformPlugin, ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin, AppleLPC are loaded, type kextstat the terminal to see ... Good luck to all who try this guide, I just put it all together in a single tutorial to facilitate the understanding of power management in Sandy and Ivy Bridger, but all credits go to the respective owners of the wonderful tools that enable power management in our CPUs Credit: Pike R.

  4. I've been trying to boot to Lion for a couple hours now, and get through the installation with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]/[url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and all that mess, however, after the installation, I get stuck at "DSMOS" has arrived. I've tried pretty much every bootflag I can think of, and it all ends at the same thing. My specs are as follows, as far as I see them being relevant: Asus U43F Laptop Intel Core i5 Sandy Bridge Intel HD 3000 Graphics Any ideas? I've tried -x -f -v PCIRootUID=0 cpus=1
  5. Salve a tutti, vorrei installare OSX sul mio PC, il problema è che pur avendo dato un'occhiata alle guide, non ci ho capito molto... I componenti del PC sono i seguenti: - Scheda madre ASUS P8Z68-V LX - Processore Intel Core i5-2500k 3.30Ghz - RAM G.Skill Ripjaws 8gb (2x4gb) 1600Mhz CL9 - Scheda video XFX Radeon HD 6970 2gb - Hard Disk Western Digital 500gb - Masterizzatore LG SATA Come prima domanda... sono compatibili questi componenti con OSX Lion, o eventualmente Snow Leopard? Nel caso sia tutto ok per la compatibilità, a questo punto cosa dovrei fare per installare OSX sul mio PC, considerando che voglio tenere anche Windows 7? Grazie in anticipo
  6. Hi, folks! Thanks to an arduous research here, there and everywhere, I'm running Mavericks on a borrowed 2011 Sony Vaio (15''-Core i3-HD 3000-Realtek 8168-Atheros 9285) almost perfectly. The cool thing is, I didn't need to replace any HW part - neither could I, since the machine's not mine - taking just hard work and quite a few hours of my time to get it running this way. This is quite uncommon for laptops, which usually won't have a supported bluetooth or a supported ethernet or supported card reader etc. That said, I'm getting some issues that, far from being a deal breaker, are anyway annoying enough to not try to solve. First, sleep: this is kinda expected, since I had to patch AICPUPM for the mobile Sandy Bridge CPU to get rid of NCPUPM. The system won't go to sleep even if I use the sleep option in the Apple logo menu, or in the popup that appears when I press the laptop's power button. The screen will turn off, and that's all - and it won't turn back on, forcing me to do a hard reboot. Not funny. pmset -g assertions give me this output: post-998446-0-43218600-1384293621.png But iFire informed the kernel assertions are a bug and shouldn't prevent idle sleep, much less manual sleep. Second, and equally frustrating, is that every time I try to use the "About This Mac" option of the Apple logo menu, i'm log off from the system. In fact, I found out it's a crash, here's a screenshot of Console's latest crash report about it: If I access System Information via Applications/Utilities, it works just fine. Any advices? All the best!
  7. Me gustaría saber si es posible instalar Snow Leopard en procesadores Sandy Bridge o Ivy Bridge. No quiero las florituras de Lion o Mountain Lion, ni tampoco uso iCloud ni aplicaciones a pantalla completa... probé durante meses Lion pero volví a Snow Leopard. Por eso quiero usar el que para mi es el último OS X verdaderamente estable y rápido. La idea es comprar un procesador y placa que me sirva para montar un hack compatible con los modelos nuevos para poder instalar OS X modernos por si sacan un OS X en el futuro que realmente me convenza para dejar de usar Snow Leopard que para mi es el mejor OS X por estabilidad y rapidez. Estoy analizando la compatibilidad de estos procesadores para ser usados con Snow Leopard: i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 275€ i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo Boost) 333€ Ambos son para placas LGA1155 y por lo que he leido hasta ahora parece que no merece la pena comprar el Ivy Bridge porque no se gana mucho y se calientan bastante. Parece que el paso a 22nm respecto los Sandy que son de 32nm les está trayendo problemas de temperatura. Así que me centro en el i7-2600K si es que no me recomendáis algo mejor. La idea será acompañarlo de 16GB de RAM para empezar. Muchas gracias.
  8. Hello all, I've been gone for awhile and am wondering with the holidays coming up should I upgrade my badass Hackintosh entirely, or should I just upgrade a couple of things? Some of my specs are in my signature. I need more Hard Drive space and currently I have a option to upgrade my storage by either getting a card to expand my IDE capacity or taking one of my two DVD drives out. What I have in the Signature is actually my backup HD. The ones I have Inside are 160GB, 120GB, and 2 TB. I have slow 667mhz memory in here. Would it tremendously help if i upgraded to the O.C. which is 1066 or higher to 1366? I need to be able to keep Snow Leopard functionality because of older games I refuse to let go just to go to lion or mountain lion. I also want to make sure video games like WoW or Starcraft which are the ones I usually play will not make my system a minimum specs for awhile. I'm going through college and I don't have allot of money to spend on other things besides school so any help that is not tough on my wallet would be great. If anyone can say if my board and graphics card is supported in mountain lion and lion that'd be great!
  9. Hi. I just ditched iAtkos v7 dvd and burned iAtkos L2 one. I try to install Lion from it, but right after boot screen the system freezes. Like I stated in my previous post, my system should be vanilla friendly, so probably I picked wrong options/drivers from iAtkos CUSTOMIZE option. What options I should choose to make my system running?
