  1. The app is finished. After running it automatically get the display data from the first display. If you want to make a patch for the second, change the number above on 2 instead of 1 and press the set display data button. If you have a second screen it will now get the required data. Use DarwinDumper (2.7.6 or better) to get your EDID. In DarwinDumper (2.9.1 or better) open EDID.bin, for older open the EDID.hex file with the open button. Select the Apple Display type to emulate. Press the Make button. Now on your desktop you will get the following new files: - A displayoverride for your display which is patched (probably don't want to use this). - A EDID binary which is patched (handy for 2nd check with edie-decode). - DisplayMergeNub.kext auto tailored for your config (probably want to install this). EDIT: New version V1.1 - Modified driver creation to use the new DisplayMergeNub - Fixed a bug to get 2nd / 3rd / etc display with button (caused crash) - Added basic params override for display to be set as LCD - Fixed Info.plist creation code EDIT: 1.1b - Fixed OSBundleLibraries in Info.plist generation EDIT: 1.2 - Fixed driver file copy bug in case of spaces in path - Added Apple LED Cinema display data and option - Added option for only EDID injection (unpatched) EDIT: 1.3 - Added support for the display classes AppleDisplay and AppleBacklightDisplay (for some notebooks) EDIT: 1.4 - Added IODisplayPrefs check in DisplayMergeNub.kext - Added build target for DisplayMergeNub.kext - Added IODisplayPrefs key in FixEDID for matching on that key - Added optimization for multiple monitors (identical), now you can override each display, even on multiple GPU's individually - Fixed a mistake in just edid override EDIT: 1.5 - Added override for IODisplayPrefs (check/don't check) - Added used display class for the selected monitor auto detection (AppleDisplay/AppleBacklightDisplay) - Updated DisplayMergeNub.kext for handling boolean for IODisplayPrefs use or not EDIT: 1.5b - Recompiled 32-bit kext binary for 10.5 and above - Recompiled 64-bit kext binary for 10.6 and above - Merged both binaries in one universal binary so the kext now works on 10.5 and better EDIT: 1.6 - Added hex2int conversion in ObjC manner (thanks to Marchrius for the hex2int routine) - Changed code to only parse vendor and device once and then convert to int and set the decimal value - So thanks to Marchrius setting the vendor and device values is a lot faster now EDIT: 1.7 - Added version override to EDID V1.4 (fixes some issues) - Added option for adding / fixing monitor ranges descriptor (missing in some EDID's but required by EDID V1.3 or V1.4) - Option for adding / fixing monitor ranges is by default enabled but can be disabled by unchecking the checkbox EDIT: 1.8 - Disabled checkbox for monitor range patch by default (patch can be enabled by clicking on the checkbox) - Rewrote the routine for getting the IODisplayPrefs key and setting the vendor and device id in both decimal and hexadecimal (thanks to Marchrius for supplying the faster routine, I modified it slightly for multiple displays) it now gets the vendor and device id from the IODisplayPrefs key instead of running 2 tasks for getting them. It also is now NSTask and NSPipe based (thanks again to Marchrius). It really is about 4 times faster. - Made override for monitor ranges more generic, it should now work on any display EDIT: 1.9 - List with all the displays implemented from which you can choose (credits: Marchrius) - Reads only once the displays unless refresh is clicked (credits: Marchrius) - Faster setting of display data (credits: Marchrius) - New UI (credits: Marchrius) EDIT: 2.0 - Added display class override to kext - Added display class override to app => This means you can make an AppleBacklightDisplay from an AppleDisplay and vice versa EDIT: 2.1 - Added signed kext - Added signed app (all now GateKeeper compliant) - Added scaled resolutions adding for HiDPI support - More bugfixes EDIT: 2.2 - Added help function - Added remove button for resolutions - Added credits file - Added color profile only patch - Added adding / fixing monitor ranges on no patch and color profile only - Added quick buttons for displays (click menu of display models, type 1 to 7) - Added quick buttons for Display Class (click menu of class, type A or - Added quick buttons for Display Override Class (click menu, type C or D) * For using HiDPI resolutions, use RetinaDisplayMenu, attached below... EDIT: 2.2.1 - Changed synthesized method to direct binding (enables building of 32+64 bit app and adds support for building for versions less than 10.7.X) - Rebuilt FixEDID with a 32+64 bit universal app EDIT: 2.3 - Added iMac Retina panel (iMac14,2) - Added aspect ratio description after panel names (16:10 or 16:9) - Bugfix related to fixing monitor ranges on "Only Inject EDID Unpatched" and "Only Patch Color Profile" EDIT: 2.3.1 - Added MacBook Air panel (MacBookAir5,1) - Added scaleable UI - Added fullscreen app support EDIT: 2.3.2 - Added aspect ratio detection based on first detailed descriptor of the EDID on open of the EDID binary (based on detailed resolution) EDIT: 2.3.2 (2nd build) - Fixed aspect ratio detection, there was a resolution issue and I reimplemented detection based on GCD value (greatest common divisor) NOTE: For 32 bit and 64 bit kext it will need to be rebuilt using an older version of Xcode... Xcode 5.X's clang compiler won't build 32 bit kexts If you have Monitor_Apple.kext or DisplayMergeNub.kext installed and which to patch, remove the kext in /S/L/E and caches, reboot, run DarwinDumper and then run the app, otherwise the display values will be wrong... Enjoy and please give me feedback Source is included Github repo: https://github.com/andyvand/FixEDID Github development repo: https://github.com/andyvand/FixEDID_Devel RetinaDisplayMenu.zip FixEDID-2.3.2.zip
  2. Hi guys, crazy problem. so, i can boot from NVME. but not if Thunderbolt card is plugged in. screen just goes black when apple logo would normally show up, then desktop. it just stops. I can boot from normal SSD, and be able to mount the NVME (non-booting), and use Thunderbolt, but i want to be able to boot from the NVME and use Thunderbolt. I've tried putting the Thunderbolt card in different slots, and that hasn't been helping so far. Might there be any Clover flags perhaps, that could fix this? or any other solution? Donation for working solution! my config: 5960X X99-A Yosemite Clover ThunderboltEX II Samsung 950 Pro NVME SSD
  3. Hi! I recently had to upgrade my computer, after my motherboard went bang a couple of weeks ago. As you can see in my sig, I'm now a proud owner of an Asus Z97 Gryphon m-ATX board. One of the nicest features of it is the possibility of thunderbolt expansion via the Asus Thunderboltex II PCI-e card, for a smaller total cost than Gigabyte's competing solution, the Z97-UD7-TH. On the other hand, the UD7-TH thunderbolt port works more or less OOB under OSX - like everything Gigabyte usually does - and didn't even know the Asus card existed until very recently. So I'm now curious - did I make a good choice going Gryphon for a future thunderbolt capability without the UD7-TH's price tag? Have anyone actually tried this card with a hackintosh? If so, does it work fine, or work at all? All the best!
  4. for use with the Apple 27" LED Cinema Display (A1316 MC007LL/A) 2560 x 1440 which only has ONE cable with a mini DisplayPort plug, in now Mountain Lion and later Mavericks. $250 for Apple's ATI Radeon HD 5770 Graphics Upgrade Kit for Mac Pro MC742ZMA is too much for me. Usage: heavy Adobe graphics/ video mix (Photoshop/ InDesign/ Illustrator/ Premiere/ Dreamweaver), all open at the same time .. Final Cut Pro will follow later. Apart from that, here's what the card also needs to be able to deliver in 10.8.5 (and best 10.9): dual-monitor: connect a 2nd one via DVI or HDMI live resolution switching on both monitors w/o black or blue screens fully working wake from monitor sleep AND wake from MacOS sleep on BOTH monitors w/o black or blue screens cooling fan(s) not too loud if possible Sharing of best your personal experience or otherwise links or pointers would be very welcomed Thank you, Bugs
  5. For those of you, like myself, who choose not buying QUO when it was on kickstarter phase and now regret for quite a while not being able to use a thunderbolt capable board with our good old Ivy Bridge CPUs, since 7-series boards vanished, and the few ones which had TB more so, that's noteworthy news. I was planning to upgrade my old i5 3570K, but perhaps I had an alternative which would allow me to keep it: http://quocomputer.com/shop/z77mx-quo-aos/ Still thinking about it: does it still worth the price in these 8/9 Series/Haswell/Broadwell days?
  6. Hi guys, I built a Z97 Hack with Chamleon. I added a Thunderbolt EX II Asus Card. (2 Thunderbolt Ports) Its running. But I cant do Hot Swap. I have to restart if I connect something. Can somebody solve that? Maybe with clover ? If somebody can make this smooth run for me ... would be fantastic.
  7. I just purchased a refurbished 27" iMac (September 2013. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough money to buy one with a SSD or Fusion drive, and I am stuck with a 1TB internal drive at 7200rpm. Originally, I was just going to purchase an external SSD and boot from it, but I have decided that I would rather use a hybrid/fusion drive. Will a hybrid drive even work properly in an enclosure? If not, any recommendations on a cheaper external SSD? I was hoping to get the following hybrid drive with a decent USB 3.0 or TB enclosure. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EIQTOFY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. I'd like to build a "Hackintosh PRO" with thunderbolt for the occasional time I use an UA Apollo Twin. Looking for a 6-core I7 , and a motherboard that can take between 32GB - 64GB of ram. I've seen some people getting the thunderbolt to work but it looks like its on older motherboards. Any help would be much appreciated.

  11. I have been researching this for over a year through many different resources (including searching Tony's infamous site, and InsanelyMac), and I have pretty much come out empty handed. A friend on Reddit suggested I ask around in here, and I realized this is kind of the central and historical hub for OSX86! I am excited to see such well organized information on loading OSX/MacOS onto a non-Mac computer! I have just recently started asking in the forums, and I have been constantly getting the same responses from other forums I have tried. These responses mostly are kind of subjective, moot points, and sometimes, downright rude. I'm trying to keep things polite and courteous, and so I will lay down what I am trying to do upfront. I would LIKE to be able to build a rig on which I can boot to Windows for gaming/Windows related tasks, and also boot to MacOS for recording/editing audio and video. I would LIKE to have a high performance setup that goes beyond normal 4-core, x16 PCIe lane specs in current gaming i7 setups. We have reached a limit on core speed for the near future, for the most part, and it has become necessary to use more cores, alongside applications that can utilize those cores, to get more performance out of a system. I have looked at real world performance with the i7-6700K and other 4 core processors in the same class, and I don't see it easily pulling the weight I want to throw at it now, much less in the future as software evolves. I am not really interested in hearing the argument about how I don't need more than 4 cores. I am not just gaming here. I've heard this far too many times for it to be worth saying again, but do as you wish. I need low-latency round-trip capabilities for audio so I can monitor with effects ON (wet) while I overdub new tracks. This requires more cores to balance the load. I am not really interested in hearing about how i7 performs much better than XEON, performance vs. price. For my needs, it doesn't necessarily do that. My needs require large amounts of floating point Ops for video rendering, and, while some i7s can do this quite well, server class processors tend to do this better. I can go either way on this though. I have already heard these comments and have taken them into account. I am fully aware of the fact that X99 (and X79?) chipsets are a nightmare to work with on OSX. I am NOT fully aware as to how much of a nightmare, or what is nightmarish about them. No one seems to have a response to those questions. Just that I shouldn't bother. I have found scattered info on some problems with those chipsets, but I don't really have the full picture on why they are difficult or even not possible for my needs. I am seriously interested in rolling up my sleeves, learning some new things, and getting my hands dirty (and possibly very frustrated) figuring out, on my own, how to make a build work! Of course, I cannot do this completely on my own, hence the need for this large wealth of knowledge you all have here! Here are my desired specs for my system: 8 Core i7 or Xeon with over 3GHz and made within the last 3-4 generations. 32GB of the fastest RAM compatible with my system either stock speed or OC (if i7 system is chosen, of course) At least a single GeForce 900 series Nvidia graphics card (or the GeForce 10 series if we have those working in builds now) USB 3.0/3.1 (if possible) The fastest SSD I can use with my setup, whether that be a SATA III drive, a Raid setup, or a PCIe, M.2, or other fast I/O system FireWire connection, or, if possible (which, by my research, seems pretty bleak right now) some Thunderbolt connections At least 2x16 PCIe slots Water cooling system to keep noise down and increase longevity of my system (CPU and GPU) I am seriously, and humbly, asking for your advice on where I should start looking for components to my build. I'm willing to go the distance (or even pioneer groundbreaking new techniques haha!) for getting these specs to work. Is it possible to get a stable build with +4 cores that can do what I need it to do? I already know a system like this would rock out with gaming on Windows, but can I semi-reliably use it for recording/UHD video editing? Remember, I don't rely on this system for money, I have another job (or two) ;^) I would just like to be able to do this for extra money at some point and possibly work it into a business. I just need something that will work for the most part right now. Can anyone here help me in understanding the known limitations of the systems that fit my desired specs? Or perhaps, have some other ideas I haven't considered? I'm open to any replies, even (sigh) including the typical ones I mentioned above, especially if they shed light on the subject. Thank you so much in advance! Mikey P
  12. 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!
  13. Hello guys. This is not my first hackintosh, but this will be the first time to create a hackintosh with thunderbolt. First of all, i have read some info about MoBos with Thunderbolt, but im a bit confused. I need to create a working hackintosh with Thunderbolt 2/3 . At this moment i know that we got 2 options (Correct me if im wrong), -we can get one MoBo and ad a Pcie Card with thunderbolt (only if the chipset is compatible) -we can get one MoBo with thunderbolt integrated via USB-C connectors (like the new Macbook Pro) What are the possible MoBos that have integrated Thunderbolt vía USB (or directly thundelbolt ports)? I have read a lot of buyers guides from some webs , but a lot of that MoBos with thunderbolt enabled, are "discontinued" or without stock Should we only choose Gigabyte MoBos? I Have been too looking at Gigabyte website, and seems that the Chipset Z170 its the only one with Thunderbolt (vía USB-C) ports. Could you help me with these please? Thanks You So Much!
