  1. Hi guys. Just wanted to say this is my new favorite forum for mac hacks I'm trying to get mojave to work, and using the guide's (moderator made, on the front page) clover folder I ALMOST got it! T.T There's something still wrong tho. lol. - Install to a HDD formated as case-sensitive APFS goes black at 2 minutes remaining. Is it supposed to fill the progress bar 100%? If so then I have a problem. - Assuming the install went well, I tried to boot to "MacOS Prebooter" from clover screen and got that error. I have a Z170m ASUS, awesome board. I'm sure it can be done. With Intel 6700k. Latest clover. Guide's clover config!! What do you guys think? - mobo config problem - other hardware thing (I have many harddrives connected?) - clover config - need some driver/kext - something else THANK YOU! PS: I've tried upgrading with the App store download on a Sierra system to arrive in the same screen, with the same error. I'll also spend some time today searching the forums. Just busy atm, and thanks for any help or tips!!

  3. Hi. I'm currently on AppleALC.kext with layout ID 3. Clover's a boot argument contains alcid=3. Problem: Case: Happens only in case of earphones. Problem description: The sound is somewhat like an echo where I'm hardly able to hear the vocals of a song. And the music sounds as if it's being playing under water. I later went to audio devices and tried checking the checkbox shown in the image below. I did improve the sound and I was finally able to hear vocals of a song in a much better way, however, it still doesn't sound like a proper sound. Is there any more configuration that I need to make? The reason I'm able to differentiate the bad and the good sound output is because on High Sierra, using AppleHDA patch, the sound worked fine using AppleHDA patcher.
  4. Im new on this forum and hackintosh thing and got success on installing mojave on my PC. But.. i have a trouble to get connected to internet through my TP Link dongle, anybody have to suffer this problem before? Thankyou. My PC Spec GA-H81M-S1 Intel i7-4790k GTX 970
  5. Framebuffer patching in Mojave Binary patching framebuffers using KextsToPatch in Clover is no longer a viable method in Mojave for Skylake and above. Now you need to use Lilu + WhateverGreen. Not just for Mojave This method of framebuffer patching is not only required for Mojave we recommend it for all previous and future releases of macOS. Coffee Lake Users Please note that the new WhateverGreen will not work with fake Kaby Lake platform-id's. You will need to have either macOS 10.14 Beta 4 (18A336e) or macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112). The latter is a special build only available to MacBookPro15,1 or MacBookPro15,2 board id's. You can create a macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112) installer by running installinstallmacos.py. (Update: vit9696 added back ability to fake Kaby Lake platform-id's) Lilu + WhateverGreen WhateverGreen is going to replace all the other video patching plugins for Lilu (it currently has merged WhateverGreen, IntelGraphicsFixup, NvidiaGraphicsFixup, Shiki and CoreDisplayFixup). Others will likely follow (such as AppleALC, HibernationFixup and IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup). This is aiming to be the all-in-one solution for video. Beta Warning Please note that it is currently in a "beta" state so use it at your own risk. I am just documenting this here for those of you who want to get framebuffer patching now. Preliminary 1. Remove: - FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics - IntelGraphicsFixup - NvidiaGraphicsFixup - CoreDisplayFixup - Shiki 2. Turn off all graphics injections in Clover: - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/ATI=NO - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/Intel=NO - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/NVidia=NO - config.plist/Graphics/ig-platform-id= - config.plist/Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX= 3. Disable DSDT Clover fixes: - AddHDMI - FixDisplay - FixIntelGfx - AddIMEI 4. Disable UseIntelHDMI 5. Remove boot argument: -disablegfxfirmware 6. Remove any IGPU and HDMI entries from: - config.plist/Devices/Arbitrary - config.plist/Devices/Properties - config.plist/Devices/AddProperties 7. Remove any IGPU and HDMI related SSDT and DSDT from: - CLOVER/ACPI/patched 8. Renaming GFX0 -> IGPU - WhateverGreen will do this automatically - You may need to include Clover GFX0 -> IGPU rename for other kexts or ACPI patching that require it Compile Lilu + WhateverGreen Download WhateverGreen. Make sure you place the debug version of Lilu into the root of WhateverGreen before you compile. Install Lilu and WhateverGreen kext's into the usual place. Compile WhateverGreen as debug if you want to view debug output. Having trouble compiling? If you're having trouble compiling you can wait for the official binaries or download my (unsupported) build_lilu.sh shell script and run it in a folder to download and build Lilu + WhateverGreen using Xcode automatically. I recommend you try the debug versions first (place them into Clover's EFI/Clover/kexts/Other folder). Get the device path of your IGPU: Download and use the gfxutil tool like so: $ ./gfxutil -f IGPU DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) ig-platform-id For the AAPL,ig-platform-id (AAPL,snb-platform-id for Sandy Bridge) entry Clover requires this value to be in Data format so you need to reverse the bytes. So if you want your platform-id to be 0x3EA50009 first reverse the bytes (0900A53E) then use Xcode's plist editor to add the values to Clover's config.plist. What ig-platform-id should I use for my system? You should choose one that is the closest match to your system. I recommend you do some research on this before choosing one. See post #2 for available options. More info can be found here. You can determine the generation of your CPU by the first digit after the hyphen. Examples: - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2760QM (Gen 2) - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5257U CPU @ 2.70GHz (Gen 5) - Intel(R) Core(TM) m3-6Y30 (Gen 6) - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8350U (Gen 8) Here are some recommended frames: Gen 2: Sandy Bridge (Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000) - Support started with OS X 10.7.x and ended with macOS 10.13.6 - Metal support is not available - Desktop: 0x00030010 (default) - Laptop: 0x00010000 (default) Gen 3: Ivy Bridge (Intel HD Graphics 2500/4000) - Support started with OS X 10.8.x - Desktop: 0x0166000A (default), 0x01620005 - Laptop: 0x01660003 (default), 0x01660009, 0x01660004 Gen 4: Haswell (Intel HD Graphics 4200-5200) - Support started with OS X 10.9.x - Desktop: 0x0D220003 (default) - Laptop: 0x0A160000 (default), 0x0A260005 (recommended) Gen 5: Broadwell (Intel HD Graphics 5300-6300) - Support started with OS X 10.10.2 - Desktop: 0x16220007 (default) - Laptop: 0x16260006 (default) Gen 6: Skylake (Intel HD Graphics 510-580) - Support started with OS X 10.11.4 - Desktop: 0x19120000 (default) - Laptop: 0x19160000 (default) Gen 7: Kaby Lake (Intel HD Graphics 610-650) - Support started with macOS 10.12.6 - Desktop: 0x59160000 (default) - Laptop: 0x591B0000 (default) Gen 8: Coffee Lake (Intel UHD Graphics 630) - Support started with macOS 10.13.6 (17G2112) / 10.14 beta 4 (18A336e) - Desktop: 0x3EA50000 (default), 0x3E9B0007 (recommended) - Laptop: 0x3EA50009 (default) Framebuffer Patching WhateverGreen does most of the work automatically for you and in most cases you do not need any extra Framebuffer Patching. At the minimum though you should choose an ig-platform-id suitable for your system and place it in config.plist/Devices/Properties like this: Here are some reasons why you might need extra Framebuffer Patching: - Setting DVMT for those who can't set it above 32 MB in BIOS (framebuffer-stolenmem / framebuffer-fbmem) - Setting higher VRAM (framebuffer-unifiedmem) - Disabling eGPU (disable-external-gpu) - Enable pixel clock patch for 4K support (enable-hdmi20) - Disabling connectors to enable sleep (framebuffer-pipecount / framebuffer-portcount / framebuffer-conX-type=-1) - Removing CNConnectorAlwaysConnected flag for eDP laptop screens on < 10.13.6 (framebuffer-con0-flags=0x00000090) - Changing connector types to match your systems ports (framebuffer-conX-type) Framebuffer Patching Types We have three different types of patches: 1. Arbitrary (Recommended) framebuffer-patch-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id) (all below are optional) framebuffer-mobile framebuffer-pipecount framebuffer-portcount framebuffer-memorycount framebuffer-stolenmem framebuffer-fbmem framebuffer-unifiedmem framebuffer-cursormem (Haswell only) framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-conX-index framebuffer-conX-busid framebuffer-conX-pipe framebuffer-conX-type framebuffer-conX-flags 2. All Data framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-conX-alldata 3. Find / Replace framebuffer-patchX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-patchX-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id) framebuffer-patchX-find framebuffer-patchX-replace framebuffer-patchX-count (optional; defaults to 1) You should place your patches in config.plist/Devices/Properties in Clover config.plist. Here are some example patches: - 32MB BIOS, 19MB stolen (framebuffer) 9MB fbmem (cursor) 2048MB unifiedmem (vram) - Pipe / Port Count 3 to 2 - Connector 1 DP to HDMI - Connector 2 Disable Here is an example of the All Data method: Here is an example of the Find / Replace method: Framebuffer Dumps There are two ways to dump your framebuffer data (both require WhateverGreen + Lilu debug versions): 1. Using -igfxdump boot flag to dump IGPU framebuffer kext to /AppleIntelFramebuffer_X_Y (root of your boot drive) There are several ways of reading this dump: - Using 010 Editor along with the IntelFramebuffer.bt template - Using Intel FB-Patcher File->Open menu 2. Using -igfxfbdump boot flag to dump native and patched framebuffer table to ioreg at IOService:/IOResources/WhateverGreen There are several ways of reading this dump: - Using dump_platformlist.sh shell script - Using Intel FB-Patcher File->Import->IOReg Dump menu Debug Output To get debug output from Lilu use the -liludbgall flag and for WhateverGreen use the -wegdbg boot flag. You will need to compile Lilu and WhateverGreen as debug for both of these flags to work. To view debug paste the following into Terminal (weglog.txt will output to your home directory): log show --predicate 'process == "kernel" AND (eventMessage CONTAINS "WhateverGreen" OR eventMessage CONTAINS "Lilu")' --style syslog --source --last boot >weglog.txt Credits - vit9696 and lvs1974 for WhateverGreen (Full Credits) and Lilu (Full Credits) - Andrey1970 for his guide on applelife.ru - RehabMan for all data patching method, ioreg framebuffer dump and other contributions

  7. Buongiorno a tutti, La scorsa settimana ho aggiornato High Sierra a Mojave seguendo le rispettive guide per l' aggiornamento dei Kext all' interno della partizione EFI. Tutte le periferiche funzionano correttamente audio compreso ( di solito non parte al primo riavvio ), tranne la Vram della scheda grafica integrata in firma ( 7 MB riconosciuti). Premesso che: - Ho aggiornato Lilu e aggiunto WhateverGreen nella cartella EFI/Clovers/Kexts/10.14 & EFI/Clovers/Kexts/Other - Ho rimosso IntelGraphicsFixup & Shiki - Ho rimosso Inject Intel con il relativo platform Id della scheda video ( era necessaria per High Sierra) - Con Clover configurator ho aggiunto sotto Device -> Proprieties platform id, device id, Framebuffer-unifedmem ecc. ecc. ( Vedere config.plist in allegato) Al boot mi esce il messaggio [IGPU] Failed to initialize graphics firmware e si blocca la schermata. Qualora dovessi mettere un FakeId o semplicemente fare da clover Inject Intel + Platform Id: 0x00001912 ( se metto il Platform giusto 0x19120000 mi da sempre il solito errore), il sistema ovviamente parte senza problemi ma con 7MB di VRam. Mi è sfuggito qualcosa? Grazie in anticipo config.plist
  8. Premise: the following explanation is only to exploit the little APFS Recovery (less than 600 MB) embedded inside the APFS File System, so avoiding an external USB Installer, you can't reinstall macOS from here but use just the Utilities (Terminal, DiskUtility) in case of emergency, however as known from a Recovery Terminal can do a lot of things, especially troubleshooting an unbootable macOS. To those who have installed Mojave on APFS file system with a GUID/GPT Scheme (I suppose it will work even on MBR scheme), I have managed to "fix" the "APFS Recovery Volume" to make it bootable from any computer (capable of HighSierra and Mojave) with USB input devices (trackpad, keyboard, USB mouse and so on) responsive, working wifi and everything else, just follow next steps, totally safe and harmless for any Mojave installation, after booting normally from your Mojave APFS Volume, launch Terminal and type:diskutil apfs list{locate your "APFS Recovery Volume" on diskXs3 [for an internal "APFS Container" is typically mounted on disk1s3]} On APFS scheme the "APFS Recovery Volume" is tipically on the 3rd (hidden) partition.diskutil mount diskXs3 open /Volumes/Recoverylanding on Finder, double click on the "random-numbers-letters" folder (it's the gpt UUID folder where Recovery stores itself), once inside rename these files:prelinkedkernel into prelinkedkernelbackup immutablekernel into immutablekernelbackup PlatformSupport.plist into PlatformSupportbackupDon't close this opened Finder window yet, once you renamed those 3 files, now you have to open a new Finder window, then from this new Finder window go into your Mojave path: /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/ while inside this path copy the file prelinkedkernel into the previous Finder window exactly where you renamed those 3 files lastly rename this fresh copied file from prelinkedkernel to immutablekernelNow you have a working APFS Recovery Volume. Note for those who use Clover bootloader in the config.plist you have to don't "Hide" the APFS Preboot and Recovery hidden partition, otherwise you can't use the APFS Recovery.
  9. Hi guys, So, this little tutorial is meant to help people fix a new issue with Mojave: opening jpg files (looks like it happens with larger files, not so much with smaller ones) using Quick Look (on spacebar key pressed) or Preview app using the dedicated GPUs. The issue is that, when trying to open jpg files (for some reason, it doesn't occur with pngs), the pop-up window would remain in an endless loop. And from that point forward, any other app trying to open the same file, will either become unresponsive (in the case of the Preview app) or just stay in endless loop (in case of Quick Look) As a workaround, in case the tutorial below doesn't work for you, you can use Grab (built-in app in MacOS) to open said files. This issues DOES NOT occur using the iGPU. So...if you're comfortable using the iGPU, just switch to that and you should be good to go. You don't need this tutorial. This tutorial is based on @Cyberdevs' research and testing on this topic (especially useful if you're using an RX series AMD video card), and my own very limited time testing this on my rig. I just thought it would be useful to create a new thread for it so that people can discuss this particular issue here. With that being said, I'll just move on to the actual tutorial. New (probably better) method. Switch your SMBIOS in Clover config in regards to the dedicated GPU you're using, instead of the CPU. Take a look here and choose the corresponding SMBIOS closest to your hardware. Yeah, that's it. In case you lose CPU PM with this method, there are multiple ways to fix that, and they do not make the object of this thread. It worked perfectly fine for me though and I didn't need to change anything else. A simple Lilu plugin Thanks to vulgo for the plugin and @Matgen84 for sharing and testing it, we now have yet another possible solution to this issue. It's a Lilu plugin (which means that it requires Lilu.kext in order to work) it's called NoVPAJpeg, and it can be downloaded from here. You use it as a regular kext, alongside Lilu. I prefer (and recommend) using it within the EFI folder, in Clover/kexts/Other. But if you want to use it in S/L/E, that should work just fine. More info can be found in this post here. In case you wanna try alternative medicine ... The main thing we need to do is actually very simple: we need to enable the iGPU (integrated GPU) by default, in BIOS, while actually being connected to the dedicated GPU. For ATI GPUs (curtesy of @Cyberdevs' post here). The discreet GPU should be set as primary in BIOS and your displays should be connected to your discreet GPU The iGD/iGPU/iGFX must be enabled in BIOS/UEFI as the secondary GPU.  I removed the DSDT Reconfigured the config.plist to and removed some flags which weren't needed because of the DSDT added the InjectATI + Ornioco Framebuffer (I removed the Orinoco framebuffer because of some weird glitches but it might be useful for other AMD GPUs if you inject the correct framebuffer according to your GPU. No need to inject anything for nVidia GPUs unless your GPU needs it) Added the InjectIntel + ig-platform-id for my intel HD530 (for intel HD 530 I use the 0x19120001 ig-platform-id)  Steps 5 to 7 might not be necessary I just did them anyway, if anyone succeeded to get quicklook working without those steps let me know so I can exclude those steps. Also confirmed to work with AMD R9 270X on a SandyBridge rig (without an iGPU) using WhateverGreen + Lilu kexts, which also helped to solve the transparency issue along with the Quick Look problem, it also resolved the buggy Screen Capture (Command+Shift+5) issue as well. Also, do: nvram cleanup kextcache & prelinked kernel rebuild reboot More info on that here. For NVIDIA GPUs This is what I needed for my NVIDIA rig and the MSI motherboard in the signature. Your milage may vary, depending on your hardware. But, the idea should be the same regardless. For MSi motherboads (check out my motherboard details in the signature) Set your BIOS to use PEG (dedicated GPU) so you can boot. Since you're reading this, chances are that you're already connected to the dedicated GPU and the BIOS is set to PEG. So just go into BIOS and see if you're using the iGPU or the dedicated (PEG) graphics device by default. If you're already using this, skip to Step 3 (the part AFTER Reboot). Reboot (I think you don't necessarily need to boot into the OS...but you do need to reboot at least until Clover UI) Reboot back into BIOS and set it from PEG to IGD (integrated graphics) WITHOUT removing the cable. Save Reboot again. The result should be that the OS is tricked into thinking you're booting with the IGPU when in fact you're using the dedicated GPU. For Gigabyte motherboards Set: Peripherals -> Initial Display Output -> iGFX Chipset -> Internal Graphics -> Enabled DVMT Pre-Allocation -> default 64M. DVMT Total Gfx Mem -> default 256M Save Reboot You should do this with the cable connected to the dedicated GPU. You will also need to patch the iGPU from Clover config. 1. Graphics -> Inject Intel (UNCHECK Inject Nvidia or ATI if it's checked). 2. ig-platform-id (in my case for Intel HD 4600 Desktop) it was: 0x0d220003 And use IntelGraphicsFixup.kext (now included into WhateverGreen.kext) in Clover/kexts/Other. In my particular case, without the kext, I would get freezes in Safari. This might be a bug with Mojave and it could be fixed by Apple in the future. but in the meantime, feel free to use this if it helps you fix the issue. For HP motherboards (including laptops), so far no solution, unless the BIOS somehow allows to switch from eGPU to iGPU and vice-versa. Cheers!

  11. Hi All, I would like to replace macOS Sierra with macOS Mojave in a Sierra / High Sierra multiboot system in the same ssd (Asus P5G41T-M LX mb - Intel Core2Duo E8600 cpu - legacy-bios mode with Clover bootloader). Unfortunately both existing partitions are HFS + and I read that installing MacOS Mojave requires an APFS partition. Is it possible to format/convert, for example, the existing macOS Sierra partition from HFS+ to APFS without deleting the other existing macOS High Sierra partition? Thanks in advance for Your help
  12. Mojave (and maybe High Sierra 10.13.6) on Asrock H370M-ITX/ac and getting RX560 or RX580 to work with Intel graphics for full hardware acceleration Components used: Core i7 8700, UHD 630 Gigabyte Radeon RX560 Wifi/BT BCM943602BAED (DW1830) M.2 Sapphire Nitro RX 580 Samsung PM961 NVMe SSD *This guide requires you to know the basics, meaning how to create a macOS install drive, installing and using Clover. There are great beginners guides out there! As always you need at least FakeSMC to boot, every other kext I’ve used is mentioned in the guide. For Mojave beta you need to be enlisted with your Apple-ID in Apple’s beta programme. What is described here may work for High Sierra 10.13.6, but I doubt it to be reliable. Even in early beta status (PB3) Mojave runs much more stable and smoother than High Sierra ever did for me.* *UPDATE Mojave final* For the final release of Mojave you can use my attached Clover folder as a reference. If you don't have a Radeon RX 580 installed or you prefer WhatEverGreen just use the DSDT_no_graphics.aml and rename it to DSDT.aml. You need to have updated to BIOS V3.00 to use it. *UPDATE* I've updated to BIOS Revision 3.00 which seems to work fine in contrast to 1.50. Already compiled a new DSDT and uploaded it alongside a new config.plist. You can use both if you like. If you don't use a RX 580 you need to edit the PEG0-PEGP section in the DSDT to adjust it to your graphics hardware. With this DSDT and config in place you'll only need FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet, USBinjectall plus XHCI-300-Injector, Lilu plus AppleALC for Sound. You can add Shiki for iTunes DRM playback if you like, I've uploaded the latest version as well. Avoid Whatevergreen at this time. UEFI-BIOS settings: The board comes with BIOS version 1.20, there is an update 1.50 on the Asrock website. Usually it is good to stay updated but in this case I’ll recommend to stay on 1.20, because the 1.50 version seems to be unstable and I had restarts upon wake and things like that I couldn’t get fixed even with dsdt patches. So I just downgraded to 1.20 which runs fine. Settings needed: Just the usual. Disable fast boot and security boot (everything Windows-related), disable vt-d and enable XHCI hand-off. Activate multi monitor support and set VRAM to 64MB to activate the Intel IGPU. From what I’ve read most people recommend 128MB but I find the 64MB setting to be more reliable, getting artifacts with settings below or above 64MB. 128MB may be needed for 4k support, though. *Update* BIOS V 3.00 with Mojave final release works fine with 128MB. As for nVidia users: You may have to disable the Intel graphics. I’m using an AMD card and that is the brand to go these days since Apple decided to work with AMD Clover and power management: I recommend upgrading to 4586. It seems that Aptiomemoryfix is now working with H370 chipsets. I stayed on OsxAptiomemoryfix2 together with Emuvariable and it works. Feel free to experiment. *Update* Now using OsxAptioV3. For power management with your CoffeeLake cpu you can just tick plugin type within Clover or compile a ssdt with Pikeralphas script. Mojave reports my cpu correctly as Core i7 since PB3, before that it is just “Unknown” but that is just cosmetic. Graphics: *UPDATE* Whatevergreen 1.2.3 now supports Displayport on Nitro RX580. Still recommend DSDT or SSDT port activation instead as it runs more reliable and faster than WhatEverGreen. *UPDATE* I updated to PB4/DP5 and switched to a Sapphire Nitro RX 580. You don't need to spoof Kabylake anymore, SMBIOS 18,x now works and can use my attached DSDT_RX580 for your convenience! You'll need it for displayport to work as primary display or else you get black screen on boot and can use only HDMI. Problems are the same as written below in the graphics section. If you need iTunes you absolutely need to keep a copy of the latest Shiki that is available, because it is discontinued. The newest WhatEverGreen-Fix (1.2.0/1.2.1) does not work! If you want to use Final Cut and don't need iTunes just stay away from Shiki or Whatevergreen. This is the worst part. Getting the Radeon to run correctly alongside the Intel graphics took me weeks to figure out. While RX570 and 580 run out of the box in most cases, the RX560 models often do not or at least not correctly. Apple even banned them from eGPU use. For my approach you cannot use “Whatevergreen.kext”, it simply didn’t work for me the way I needed it. Instead I added some fixes to my DSDT to set the correct number of ports used (DP, HDMI, DVI) and tell macOS to use the correct frambuffer. For those who are not into dsdt editing I added my DSDT, look at the “PEGP” section how it is done. This works for the RX560 using the “Acre” framebuffer, you can replace it with “Radeon”, that works too. Other cards need a different framebuffer and a different number of ports. You can do it! BTW: Do not buy this Gigabytecard!!! It has some weird VBIOS on it, which caused me nightmares before I got the card to work! Buy a Sapphire card instead, they are used by Apple too. To get full hardware acceleration for encoding videos you have to have the Intel graphics enabled alongside your AMD card. Problem is, you cannot have it running simply as a second graphics card but you’ll need to “hide” it, means telling macOS that it doesn’t have any display connectors. Otherwise you’ll have screen artifacts or in the worst case just constant crashes. This can be done by adding a certain ig-platform-id in Clover. If you use 59120003 the Intel graphics will not show up in system profiler but it is there. You can check it with iStats or HWMonitor or look if the Kaby Lake graphics kexts are loaded. This ID makes the CoffeeLake UHD 630 to be recognized as a Kaby Lake gpu that has no display ports, is just used as a helper card. You’ll need it as a helper card for video encoding. That is what Intel graphics are used for in Macs, to support video encoding on the hardware side. You can check if hardware encoding is supposedly enabled by using MacX Video Converter Pro and VDADecoderChecker. If both say “yes” and “fully supported” this is a good start. But despite the widespread belief this doesn’t mean everything is set correctly! You now have to find out, how to get both cards working together. This is the moment where you have to choose between work and fun: Are you using FinalCut Pro for video editing or are you planning to use iTunes for entertainment? Up until this day (Mojave PB3 PB4/DP5, High Sierra 10.13.6) you cannot have both working correctly! I’ll show you how it is done both ways. The best settings for Final Cut: Use the DSDT I’ve added with the respective AMD settings for the RX560 or modify them for your graphics card. Use SMBIOS for iMac17,1 (14,2 does work but picture over DP port is ugly, iMac 18,1/2/3 do not work *Since Mojave PB4 they do work at least for RX580*) in Clover. Have AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kextin your Clover/kexts/Other folder. Until Mojave PB2 (may work on High Sierra 10.13.6): Fake-ID 3E928086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 These are the correct setting when installing Mojave (usually you will start with PB1 as the full installer). For Mojave PB3 and higher: Fake-ID 59128086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 After upgrading to PB3 you will get a black screen with 3E92 fake id because PB3 introduces Coffee Lake kexts and macOS will use these kexts instead but that doesn’t work with our ig-platform-id. So you can download the update to PB3 but before installing it you’ll need to change the fake-id to a usual Kaby Lake id. While this didn’t work in High Sierra and the first two Mojave betas (meaning you didn’t get full hardware encoding) it is now magically working with PB3. It is safe to remove AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kext after upgrading to PB3. For Mojave PB4 and higher (including final release): Only add ig-platform-id 3E920003 and inject Intel = Yes in Clover, no need for spoofing a fake id anymore. Now iMac18,3 works best with AMD. Intel only users should use iMac18,1 instead. The best setting for iTunes and why it is the worst for Final Cut: Just do the same thing as for FinalCut, put Shiki.kext into your Clover/kexts/other folder and add -shikigva boot argument. You can use -shikigva=1 or 2 or 12 it will work either way. Now you can watch movies with iTunes, yay! But it has some sideeffects. You cannot use this setting when seriously editing with Final Cut. While this works by tricking macOS to use the IntelGraphics to play protected video content, it doesn’t seem to be the way real Macs are doing this. As soon as you open FinalCut you will notice (check this with iStats or HWMonitor) that the Intel graphics is not or only barely utilized under certain circumstances depending on your material. Instead cpu usage skyrockets, indicating that slow software rendering is used instead of hardware encoding through Intel graphics. To make it worse the Radeon still “thinks” there is an Intel graphics helping so it does not run at highest potential. Wifi and Bluetooth *UPDATE* With Mojave PB4/DP5 Bluetooth stopped working with Rehabman's kext, my MagicMouse simply isn't connecting anymore. I decided to finally remove the card because handoff isn't working anyway these days with M.2 or NGFF bluetooth on High Sierra or Mojave (tried several ones "the internet" claims they would work oob but they do not ;)). That is what I wanted Bluetooth for. If you need Wifi I recommend you go with a cheap Wifi-only card, you don't need to pay 30 or 40 $ for dual cards that won't work the way they were intended to work. If you are on a micro ATX board and can have a graphics card plus PCIe Wifi/BT-card that actually connects to a physical USB port on you're board then you may be lucky enough to have handoff working as expected. I'm having a wifi repeater laying around with an ethernet port in case I may need wifi someday on my hack. I swapped the Intel Wifi card that was coming with the mainboard plugged into the onboard M.2 port with a compatible Dell card. The DW1830 or BCM943602BAED. The wifi part runs half way out of the box, but if you want the card to appear as Apple AirportExtreme and set the country code according to your country you need to put FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext into Clover/kexts/other and add some Clover kext-to-patches by PMHeart. Name: com.apple.driver.AirPort.BrcmNIC Find: 75166644 3BA3581A 0000750C 4183FE04 7406 Replace: 66906644 3BA3581A 00006690 4183FE04 6690 Comment: AirPortBrcmNIC - PCIe in 10.13.x Name: com.apple.driver.AirPort.BrcmNIC Find: 4183FCFF 7435488D 55D0 Replace: 66C70644 45EB348D 55D0 (*this is for DE country code, change for your need) Comment: BCM4352-Country Code Bluetooth will work thanks to Rehabman’s kexts. You’ll need BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext OR BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext. The Data.kext can be injected through Clover, just throw it into the kexts/other folder, the Repo.kext has to be installed in /Library/Extensions on your mac drive, it won’t work with Clover. I had issues with the Data.kext, Bluetooth was gone on every second or third reboot. The Repo.kext is more reliable, haven’t had any issues yet. I really don’t like the kexts to be installed in my system but I guess I have to live with it for the time being. Oh, handoff and continuity don’t work, doesn’t matter that system profiler shows them as enabled. At least it works in one way: the mac can handoff Safari pages to my iPhone, but not the other way around. Documents opened on my phone show up in the dock, but they are not loaded. This issue is around since at least High Sierra and from what I’ve read Rehabman is not going to fix this, because he founds this features not worth it. I have to disagree, these are very convenient and valuable features if you work with desktop, laptop and tablet in different situations, I miss this capability very much! Audio Audio works with Lilu.kext plus AppleALC.kext and you need to inject Layout ID=1 in Clover if you don't use a patched DSDT. For Mojave use the boot setting -lilubetaall to force the kexts to load. If you like to have DP or HDMI audio add a HDAU device to your dsdt (see mine for reference). There's an audio patch already added in my DSDT, so you don't need to use the Clover patch. Credits: Credits go to this great community! I hope I mentioned everyone in this guide whose insights made this hack possible. If I have forgotten someone please let me know! CLOVER_Mojave_Final.zip
  13. This is bothering me for a long time now: Why does Apple deliberately disables the the RX4xx, RX5xx capabilities to hardware encode HEVC and is using Intel Quicksync instead? Is it to make the iMacPro look better than it is? I stumbled over a thread at tony-mac where people are going a totally different road for Radeon graphics. Instead of hassling around with getting Quicksync to work, they proposed to activate the AMD hardware renderer for Polaris GPU's. I tried it out and it works...somewhat I used a dummy kext from that tomato thread and edited it, so that it enables the AMDU7V4 IOGVACodec like on Vega cards, switched to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS from iMac18,3, disabled the IGPU and the results were astonishing: My 3:34min 4k50p film was rendered by FCP with HEVC in 2:34 minutes. Nearly half the time than with Quicksync! With the iMac18 SMBIOS and the "help" of Intel Quicksync it took FCP 4:41 minutes to get it done! The problem is: As soon as the "wrong" IOGVACodec is enabled H.264 encoding leads to Mojave crashing at once (be it FCP, QuickTime or Videoproc). Watching H264 material is fine, though. If anyone has any idea how to handle this, I would be very grateful. I would even accept Mojave using software encoding for H264 if I could keep this amazing speeds on HEVC! BTW: Without IGPU on iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS no problem with DRM or iTunes, no need for Whatevergreen or Shiki. That is a bonus Ellesmere.kext.zip
  14. This follows my previous guide for macOS Sierra. 0. What works and does not Works - CPU power management - QE/CI on Integrated Intel HD 4000 - Keyboard/Trackpad - HDMI and LVDS output - Audio: Headphone, speaker, HDMI (?). - Ethernet - Camera - Battery info - Bluetooth - USB Does NOT work - Internal Wifi. Workaround: USB wifi or replace your internal wifi with a supported mPCI-e card. - Sleep: does not work with an USB wifi. Workaround: Replace your internal wifi with a supported card. - VGA out. Workaround: Use an « active » HDMI to VGA adapter. I use this way to connecting my laptop to projectors. - Discrete AMD GPU - Card reader. Workaround: Use an external USB card reader. 1. Specs My Dell Inspiron 15R SE still has the following specs (I haven't upgraded it since Yosemite) : - Intel Core i7 3632QM with Intel HD Graphic 4000 - 8GB + 4GB RAM (12GB total) - 128GB Samsung EVO SSD + 1TB HDD - AMD Radeon 7730M, won't be used by any Hackintosh build - Full HD 15.4" screen 2. Requirements - A Dell 7520, of course - An USB Stick, minimum 16GB. Any 16GB should work. - A pair of USB Mouse / Keyboard during the installation and fixes (you can use your built in keyboard and touchpad later) - An existing Hackintosh (or a real Mac, if you have any ) - Downloaded «Install macOS Mojave Beta» from App Store. - A GPT-partitioned hard drive - A 20GB (minimum) partition as the target. - Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher 3. Create USB Install. For full guide please see here - Boot your existing Hackintosh or real Mac. - First you need to be sure that you have downloaded the app «Install macOS Mojave» from App Store - Use Disk Utilities to partition your USB stick with 1 partition in GPT mode, and choose «OS X Extended (Journaled)» as partition type. Note: don't use any space in label of your disk. - Run Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher, select the installer app, select usb disk as target. - Be patient. It's quite slow. - Download and install Clover Bootloader v4658 to the usb disk, note to install using EFI boot only - Copy attached config.plist to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/ - Copy attached kexts to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/ - Download NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and put it in /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/ - Reboot after finishing creating your USB for installation. 4. Install - During boot, press F12 to have boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004 to boot the installation. - It should boot directly to the installation UI - Select Utilities and Disk Utility. - Format your target partition as OS X Extended (Journaled). APFS can be used but it's your own risks - Exit Disk utility. - Begin the install procedure - it should be there already. Choose your newly formatted partition. Follow the instruction. Wait for a while (in my case I waited around 10 minutes). - It will restart your computer as soon as it finishes the file copy. - You still need to boot from USB. Hit F12 during boot to show boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004, select your installed partition and press Enter. - You will be able to see user creation. Follow the instructions on screen. When you get to your desktop, rebuild kernel cache: sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -u / - Reboot, you should be able to use both LVDS and HDMI outputs (with default ig-platform-id 01660003) with proper kext and config.plist attached. Welcome to macOS Mojave! 5. Device fixes Most of the fixes are included in the attached kext zip. 5.1. CPU Power Management Works fine with macOS Mojave (official version) as long as you use ssdtPRGen.sh as instructed here. Don't forget to delete NullCPUPowerManagement.kext afterward. 5.2. Wifi The integrated wifi doesn't work. At all. I used an external wifi dongle TP Link WN725N (v2) for Internet access. After that I replaced the internal wifi with a Atheros AR5B29 and it works natively If you use this AR5B29, copy the attached AirPortAtheros40.kext into /System/Library/Extensions config.plist.zip kexts.zip AirPortAtheros40.kext.zip

HOWOT: 1) Prepare an empty partition or USB with at least 6 GB. 2) Format the partition or USB with GUID partition table and HFS+ partition with a name BootablePartition. 3) Go to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app. 4) Show Package Contents. 5) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find BaseSystem.dmg. 6) Double click on BaseSystem.dmg to mount. 7) From Disk Utilty click on your partition or the USB that you prepared from number (2). 8) Click on restore, and chose OS X Base System (BaseSystem.dmg image), then restore it to that partition or USB. 9) After restoring rename the partition back to BootablePartition. 9) Run this command: rm -rfv /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 10) Create a new folder instead of the broken link and name it Packages, run this command: mkdir -v /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 11) Go back to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app and repeat number 2. 12) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find InstallESD.dmg. 13) Mount InstallESD.dmg. 14) Run this command: cp -v /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages/ 15) Download the latest clover from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ 16) Install clover on your USB BootablePartition or in a different USB to boot from it. delete all your CLOVER/kext/10.xx and keep others, make sure you don't have any extra kext rather than FakeSMC.kext in the other folder. in my case I used FakeSMC.kext and my lan kext RealtekRTL8111.kext. 17) known Problems in my build: If I updated directly from the apple store the installer in clover will boot with a cross circle sign. The FIX is to add this to Clover KextToPatch Thanks to @sunKi http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327488-macos-high-sierra-final-release-is-out-17a365/page-10?do=findComment&comment=2505086 this fix is still working for me in mojave. <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>fix IO error ICH10 for 10.13, credit SunKi</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> RYX2D5XCiciD4P5mhcl4D4TSdQs= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> iciD4P5mhckPmMFBCMyQkJCQdQs= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>fix hotplug ICH10 for 10.13, credit SunKi</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> icglQGACAD1AIAAAdQyB4b9///+Ji1EBAAA= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> kJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJA= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> RXh0ZXJuYWw= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> SW50ZXJuYWw= </data> </dict> </array> 18) make sure you have apfs.efi copy it from /Volumes/BootablePartition/usr/standalone/i386/apfs.efi to your EFI/CLOVER/drivers64/ and EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/. 19) SMBIOS mac model that I use is iMac13,2. 20) Go to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app click on it and chose to install to your macOS High Sierra partition. 21) Reboot. 22) From clover chose BootablePartion. 23) If everything is okie BootablePartition will boot to install macOS mojave, wait wait wait till it finish it might take to 1 hour just wait it will reach the auto reboot soon . 24) Boot to your old macOS Hight Sierra that will be your mojave partition now and enjoy. POST Install: 1) audio: a) Download Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext or build them from source (which I did). b) place them in your /EFI/CLOVER/kext/others/ c) add your audio layout in clover/Devices dict options in my case it's ALC888B which has the layout of 1: <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <string>1</string> </dict> d) I had to add beta args to clover/Boot dict, argument (-lilubeta -alcbeta): <key>Arguments</key> <string>-lilubeta -alcbeta</string> 2) Add number 14 KextsToPath array to your clover as well. Anything else is working for me I didn't need any extra clover kext so far, I tried whatevergreen.kext to fire up my rx 460 without the helper card but no success, So I am just sticking with booting from Nvidia as a first GPU from my motherboard configuration then swap the cables after choosing my macOS partion from clover. After upgrading my HFS+ High Sierra partition converted to APFS, no know problem so far. Happy build and more info about the partitioning method with a more detailed instructions in this post that I used to update my Sierra to High Sierra Special thanks to crazybirdy, sunKi and all of you out there that make this happens.
  18. macOS Mojave 10.14.1 (18B45d)
  19. Version 10.14.x


    Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR HFS+ partition. To use those patched files you must follow HowTo to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store. The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.14 HFS Firmware check by crazybirdy. What is this patched OSInstaller doing? 1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR partition. 2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware". 3. Patch to stop auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.14. 4. This patched MBR OSInstaller will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition. 5. This patched MBR OSInstaller 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 and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format. We can manually format as MBR or GPT, HFS+ or APFS on installation screen like as 10.12. We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13 and 10.14 on installation screen now. Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, and 10.14 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+), install via stage 2 automatically, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format. It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition, and can be installed as update from previous version. How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)? Just use MBR-EasyInstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT. Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12. Read HowTo Q/A Q5. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave? Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store? Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to update 10.14.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly? How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Automatic-Method)? Just use 14MBRinstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT. Read HowTo inside the dmg first, sam as 10.13. Read HowTo Q/A Q5. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave? Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store? Read HowTo Q/A Q9. How to update 10.14.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly? 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_1014fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.
  20.

  21. Finalmente!! Comando 'createinstallmedia': sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB
  22. Those who use Mojave with an OpenGL (non-Metal) Video Card in "dark mode" have noticed that global transparencies are working fine, while in "light mode" encountered the "grey" Finder menu bar and sidebars issues, this patch is intended for those who want to use Mojave mainly in "light mode" saving some transparencies around, so here is my "hybrid reduce transparency" patch. It is totally safe, harmless and reversible, it has been deeply tested and will 100% work until restart or logout, even after sleep lock screen it will still work. To return with normal "transparency" you can also do that from Accessibility prefpane disabling the "reduce transparency" checkbox. To use this patch just double click on this attached shell "mojavehld.command" and it will launch through Terminal. [METHOD 1: Enable hybrid transparency] After launch the mojavehld.command just follow these steps: type 1 type 4 close Terminal (CMD+Q) and any other app previously opened. (The choice number 3 is not mandatory) [METHOD 2: Force hybrid transparency] If for some reason after that you will still get Dock and Notification Center without "transparencies" then relaunch the mojavehld.command: type 2 type 1 type 4 close Terminal (CMD+Q) and any other app previously opened.

  23. Ciao ragazzi, volevo anticipatamente nuovamente ringraziare gengik84 per avermi realizzato il medesimo portatile su High Sierra perfettamente funzionante, che fino ad oggi non mi ha mai dato nessun problema. Ho deciso di installare la developer 11 o se meglio vogliamo chiamarla "DG" che dovrebbe essere l'anticipazione della stabile, tutto funziona correttamente tranne le seguenti cose: - WiFi non funzionante (prima andava senza problemi, addirittura la 5Ghz) - Bug grafici (che ad es. disattivato l'accelerazione hardware da Chrome, non da più problemi) - Se non avvio Clover in -v, non parte Avreste modo di aiutarmi? Per il resto, touchpad, tastiera, audio, batteria, ethernet e quant'altro vanno senza problemi. Grazie anticipatamente e allego la EFI EFI.zip
  24. I have a Lenovo P52 laptop, Xeon E-2176M hexacore, 32GB mem, SSD, 4K display running VMware Workstation 15, latest darwin.iso. I freshly installed Mojave in a VM. The VM has 8 GB mem, 2 Proc, 2 Cores, 100GB single file disk. VMware Tools is installed in the VM. When I boot, it takes roughly 4-5 seconds for the Apple logo to show up (after the EFI boot) and then roughly 80 seconds to get the Apple desktop. Is this expected performance ? I know this is virtualized, but even my 2009 MacBook Pro boots faster than this. I have searched but not found any notes regarding performance. And related to video performance, if I start LaunchPad, it appears relatively quickly but if I select the "Other" folder which typically contains the Utilities, that may take 5 seconds to show up. I know this is a video performance issue but do not know how to fix this...
