  2. Version 10.15.x

    118 downloads

    Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR HFS+ partition. Please read Readme-10.15.pdf first. How to finish the Catalina installation. 1. Use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make USB Catalina Installer. 2. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Disk Utility, format as MBR HFS+. Install Catalina to blank MBR HFS+ "Target" partition. 3. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Terminal, run the script command: copytempdata 4. Boot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition on single user mode (-s), run the script command: hfsupdatecache 5. Reboot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition, setup user name and login, finish the installation. Also, you need to setup Clover as BooterConfig=0x28, CsrActiveConfig=0x67 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- List of known issues: 1. iCloud Drive need APFS to work. 2. Some app-pkg-installers can't install to HFS+, but install to APFS fine. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What is this patched OSInstaller doing? 1. Pass the MBR check, allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR partition. 2. Pass the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware". 3. Pass auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.15. 4. This MBR-Manual-Method will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition. 5. This MBR-Manual-Method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery). No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch. What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method? As the following.... 1. createinstallmedia method, needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format. 2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12), install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR HFS+ and GUID HFS+, will never convert the partition format. We can manually format as MBR HFS+ or GPT HFS+ on installation screen like as 10.12. We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 on installation screen now. Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 future versions, I think so. It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version. 3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+), End of MBR and HFS+, there is no more MBR HFS+ patch available for 10.15 native OSInstaller. How to make 10.15 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)? Just use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT. Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12. Read HowTo Q/A Q4. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave, Catalina? Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store? And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist. Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store? A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.
  3. Working in Progress I want that my Catalina runs smooth I run Catalina beta on MBr HFS+ (only one partition) So what we can do ? 0. I have gained my Intel HD3000 QE/CI working - i have used Intel HD3000 High Sierra Kexts Done 1. Reduce size - I have used monolingual and I have deleted all unwanted languages - i have deleted unwanted Speech voices - i have delete unwanted Fonts ( Japanese , Chinese, Emoji ...) - i have delete unwanted Templates ( again speech voices) My Cat OS have been shrinked from 16 Gb to 9,96 Gb Done 2. Disable all unwanted Deamons and Agents - I'm looking for disable all Debug deamons or Agents running which are slowing my Os Still seeking .... What's else ?
  4. So... Here we go again with a new version of macOS and so far I haven't been able to get it booted in VMware Workstation, just curious if anyone else has either. Same old instructions to create a working bootable ISO function (same as Mojave but change the name of the installer app obviously). It won't boot past the Apple logo, can't boot into safe mode, or recovery either. Made several attempts so far to upgrade a clean Mojave VM using the Catalina installer app, still no joy on the reboot, it just hangs on the Apple logo with zero activity (no hard drive, network, nothing at all). Of course Apple has made some changes, so now begins the troubleshooting and scoping out what's changed and how to work around it and get this thing up and running for some mucking around. I suppose this would be a good thread to discuss all this in so, we'll see what happens. ;)
  5. Developers are being given a preview version of macOS Catalina today and a public beta will be available this summer (in July). The final version will be available to the general public in the fall. View full article

  7. Patch macOS Installer App for Unsupported Machines Often for economic reasons, Apple prevents the Installer.app for its latest macOS from installing on older machines perfectly capable of running it eg macOS 10.14 Mojave on Unsupported Macs Thread. In Mojave 10.14, @ASentientBot posted a method to patch the distribution file in OSInstall.mpkg to enable the Mojave installer to install on unsupported machines (with or without graphics card metal support). In Catalina 10.15beta, the above method no longer works since Apple is checking OSInstall.mpkg for its file signature and the mandatory requirement in Catalina to install to 2 separate apfs volumes necessitates using the original Catalina macOS Base System Installer. Fortunately, it is still possible to substitute High Sierra’s Apple Signed OSInstall.mpkg inside the Catalina or Mojave InstallESD.dmg by making it R/W. The procedure below will allow Macs or Hacks able to install High Sierra to also install Catalina or Mojave (eg SMBIOS MacPro5,1, iMac11,3, MacBook Pro7,1 which have been unsupported in macOS 10.14.x and 10.15beta) -credit to @ASentientBot's post. Prerequisites 1. Mac or Hack capable of and running High Sierra 10.13.x 2. An original, untouched copy of OSInstall.mpkg from High Serra InstallESD.dmg - attached OSInstall_10.13.6.mpkg.zip save to your ~/Downloads folder 3. macOS Installer App eg for Catalina beta or Mojave downloaded to /Applications 4. Add NVRAM boot arg (or Clover config.plist boot arg on a hack) -no_compat_check to enable system to boot to final completed Mojave or Catalina install. Procedure 1. Open Terminal and type the following open /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg (assuming the Catalina or Mojave Installer App is in /Applications) 2. Open Disk Utility, click File|New Image|Image from ‘InstallESD” 3. Save as read/write image, no encryption in /Applications 4. Unmount InstallESD in DU by clicking the "eject" icon next to it 5. Open the R/W InstallSD.dmg in /Applications and replace Catalina’s/Mojave's OSInstall.mpkg with High Sierra’s version by typing in terminal open /Applications/InstallESD.dmg cp ~/Downloads/OSInstall_10.13.6.mpkg /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg 6. Unmount InstallESD in DU by clicking the "eject" icon next to it 7. Replace original Catalina/Mojave InstallESD.dmg with our patched one, making a backup of the original. In terminal, type sudo mv /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg /Applications/InstallESD_orig.dmg sudo mv /Applications/InstallESD.dmg /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/ 8. Test the newly patched installer!…
  8. Catalina seems to be a read only kext system so modifying kexts to make older hardware work doesn't seem to be possible at this point. However we have had success using Mojave kexts to get hardware to function. For bluetooth on Broadcom WiFi cards using injectorkext and adding the Mojave bluetooth kexts to System/Library/Extensions folder seems to have solved the connectability issue. Install Mojave kexts and use kext utility to repair permissions and caches before reboot. The Zip contains the Catalina original kexts as a backup in case you want to revert. Bluetooth kexts fix.zip For Atheros WiFi we are using Mojave modified with High Sierra kexts. Install in System/Library/Extensions folder and use kext utility to repair.
  9. Hi there can someone please compile AirportBrcmFixup.kext and other Broadcom kexts for macOS Catalina
