  2. Hi guys, after using yosemite for a long time with a complete working system, i decided to jump into a fresh install on my old system. Most things work flawless, except USB3 and sleep which is the more important thing. Every time i set it to sleep, it shuts down for a moment and then the system starts again with black screen and low power consumption +- 100w (normal idle is around 120-140). I can only hard reset the system to get it working again. I used the DSDT Patch from my old system, but i think it may have some errors. I hape you do have an Idea what to do. Here are my specs: Gigabyte X79-up4 i7-3930k 32gb Ram NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3071 MB 512 Samsung SSD Mojave 14.2 newest bios I attached the RunMe files.

  5. Buenas a todos, Queria saber si a alguien le pasa algo similar a mi con la nueva version de Mojave o en general con otras versiones. Recientemente pude instalar Mojave 10.14.2 previa preparacion con (esa app q todos sabemos pero q no me deja escribir aca). El sistema funciona bien luego de instalar los kext de audio y red desde (esa app que todos sabemos pero que no me deja escribir aca) A medida que iba usando y testeando Mojave me di cuenta de esta falla y sucede solo cuando abro alguna pagina con Safari o tambien ahora descubro que sucede cuando abro Appstore y mientras hago alguna busqueda o simplemente hago scroll con el mouse se bloquea completamente el hack sin poder hacer absolutamente nada ni matar ninguna app. Ahi solo toca reiniciar. Un ejemplo se da cuando abro esta misma pagina y aparece ese video en la esquina inferior derecha. Logre "solucionarlo" instalando Adblock pero en otras paginas vuelve a suceder ese cuelgue. Mi pc: Mother: GA-H81M-H Procesador: Core i5 4460 - Video: Intel HD 4600 Kingston 8gb ram 1333 clover version 4769. Aclaro que esto sucede en una instalacion limpia sin ningun plugin instalado de nada. Bueno cualquier otra info necesaria estoy a su disposicion, gracias.

    Mojave su HP Pavilion Power 15-cb015nl

    Salve a tutti ragazzi, Mi sono appena iscritto e innanzi tutto vorrei esprimere la mia gratitudine per l'aiuto offerto. Il mio problema come da titolo riguarda il mio Pavilion Power 15 più precisamente il modello cb015nl. Ho notato che c'era un altro topic su un modello simile ma immagino che anche se i modelli sono simili non è detto che siano compatibili quindi ne ho creato uno per il mio modello. Per arrivare al dunque, sono riuscito ad installare con successo Mojave 10.14 ma ho riscontrato diversi problemi una volta avviato l'OS. Quello che non riesco a far funzionare è l'indicatore della batteria, il power managment (Stop non funziona e la luminosità), la porta ethernet e credo che la scheda wifi sia incompatibile, le gesture del trackpad, e l'audio che con una scheda audio esterna funziona a meraviglia e l'ultimo grosso problema è che non riesco a far partire clover senza la usb di installazione, ho installato clover bootoader sull'hd dove ho mojave ma niente senza la usb mi parte il bootloader di hp/windows. Premetto che sono partito con una copia di mojave scaricata dall'appstore. Vi allego il report di HackInfo sperando che possa essere d'aiuto per il troubleshooting HackInfo_Report.zip
  7. So I have an HP Envy Notebook (15t-q400) which features two Band & Olufsen speakers (tweeters) and one subwoofer - the audio codec used is the ALC290 (aka the ALC 3241). I'm running on Mojave. So far I've tried AppleALC with Lilu and have no luck - the audio plays through the headphones - although very poorly - but not the external speakers at all, and I've tried everything short of writing my own XML file for it. So I've decided to go for using the VoodooHDA kext. While VoodooHDA sees my devices immediately, they are strangely configured, and I cannot use the subwoofer or even see it listed as a device. This is my main problem. As I'm aware the proper configuration of the laptop is: Three speakers - one left, one right, and one subwoofer module One 3.5mm headphone jack An internal microphone for the webcam (this is one I'm not sure about, I don't know if it is two separate microphones or one as there are two holes in the display chasis) In my devices while using the default VoodooHDA kext, I have Output: Speaker (Analogue) - Type= Apple speaker port <--- only tweeters work Headphones (Back Right) - Type= Headphone Port <--- this seems to work well Input: Microphone (Black Right) - Type: Microphone Port <---- this works a little, sounds like it's muffled, not from the webcam Microphone (ATAPI) - Type: Microphone Port <--- this works well, is definitely the webcam microphone Here is my Pin Config (with disabled devices not ignored as I think the subwoofer is one of those devices): Here is my Pin Config for the photo above (disabled devices NOT ignored, fix not applied). 01371c00 01371d00 01371e00 01371f40 01871c10 01871d01 01871e17 01871f90 01a71c20 01a71d10 01a71ea1 01a71f04 01d71c2d 01d71d81 01d71e75 01d71f40 01271c30 01271d01 01271ea3 01271f99 01571c40 01571d10 01571e21 01571f04 01471cf0 01471d11 01471e11 01471f41 01671cf0 01671d11 01671e11 01671f41 01771cf0 01771d11 01771e11 01771f41 01971cf0 01971d11 01971e11 01971f41 01b71cf0 01b71d11 01b71e11 01b71f41 01e71cf0 01e71d11 01e71e11 01e71f41 Here is my Pin Config for the photo above (disabled devices ignored, fix not applied): 01871c10 01871d01 01871e17 01871f90 01a71c20 01a71d10 01a71ea1 01a71f04 01271c30 01271d01 01271ea3 01271f99 01571c40 01571d10 01571e21 01571f04 I have been attempting to add the subwoofer as a node in the Info.plist of VoodooHDA but can't seem to get it to work (and frankly I'm not sure which device it is!) . I've tried adding both NID 19 and 20 into my Info.plist file for VoodooHDA but neither have done any good. Am I supposed to add the NID and PinDefault to the Info.plist AFTER Pin Configurator's fix? I was under the impression this only helped with a patched AppleHDA which VoodooHDA overwrites. Thanks for all the help, I hope I conveyed this clearly! I've attached my codec dump as well. dumpcodec.rtf
  8. Hey there So I managed to do a vanilla install of 10.14 on my new machine. I have 2 exact same displays hooked up to my ASUS STRIX RX470 8G. Display 1: connected via HDMI Display 2: connected via DVI to HDMI cable Display #1 works perfectly fine, but display #2 has a really ugly pink/ magenta tint to it. In Clover (in fact even in the first half of booting) the second display has the colors just right. Then, my screen glitches/ flashes for a second The display #1 continues to work properly, #2 turns pink. Any help would be very much appreciated!
  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. Alternatively, you can also try one of the MacPro SMBIOSes, such as MacPro5,1 or MacPro6,1. It was tested multiple times and it showed good results. Keep in mind that choosing these will most likely not display you an iGPU in System Report, since those machines generally (probably all of them) use Xeon CPUs with no iGPUs either. 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. Another way to activate the iGPU while having the dGPU set as primary is by going into BIOS/SAG/Graphics Configuration/iGPU and setting Multi-Monitor to [Enabled], all the rest remains on [Auto], and set Inject/Intel to [True] in Clover config.*. Thanks to @gjw for the tip. *Motherboard dependent. But the multi-monitor option might be the same regardless of manufacturer. 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!
  10. 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 (see caveat below) - Be aware that WhateverGreen does not rename all instances of GFX0 -> IGPU but should be okay in most cases - 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 for 4K users who experience graphical glitches (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 liludump=60 boot flags. You will need to compile Lilu and WhateverGreen as debug for both of these flags to work. Log files should be located at /var/log/Lilu_*. 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
  11. macOS Mojave 10.14.3 beta (18D21c)
  12. Good evening, friends of InsanelyMac. I have an Acer Aspire E5-571 notebook with Intel processor and Intel Graphics 5500 hd graphics card. When I was using the Sierra, the video card was recognized without problems. Now that I'm using Mojave I can not get the acceleration to work. I've been researching something about having to use Lilu.kext and whatevergreen.kext but I do not have enough knowledge to solve this problem. I need the help of someone who can explain to me how to solve this acceleration problem. I'm sure it will be of great value to other users like me. Thank you very much.
  13. The macOS Mojave final release it's out! Some of the new things on this system. Dark mode:  Desktop Stacks: large.mp4 More improvements with screenshots: large2.mp4 And others very important: Better Control of Your Data Enhanced Tracking Prevention Automatic Strong Passwords As you guys are doing tests with the betas versions, maybe in this version all the things are going to be more stable. Cross your fingers!!

  14. 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
  15. 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.

  17. 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...

    [Mojave 10.14.1] Problema NVRam

    Buon pomeriggio! Sto avendo problemi di NVRam con qualsiasi combinazione possibile, ho provato AptioMemoryFix + Emuvariable + RC-Script, ho provato con solo Aptio, insomma le ho provate tutte, ma riscontro dei problemi cno la NVRam non da poco. In poche parole, se imposto uno sfondo, al riavvio o banalmente ad uno spegnimento serale per poi una accensione al giorno successivo, mi ritrovo con lo sfondo vecchio, mi capita di trovarmi col terminale con i vecchi comandi registrati o banalmente qualche cartella aperta. Mi sapreste aiutare? Vi lascio la mia EFI in descrizione. Grazie mille! CLOVER.zip
  19. Hello, im FZ, been in hackintosh community since mac os X lion years. Please consider me noob. i have helped hackintoshed pc of my friends and family. i ran el capitan, sierra, high sierra on below spec. I lost some interest in hackintoshing from past 1 year now im back again cuz of mojave. Lets start. I posted this issue in Nvidia Topic for discussion but decided not to post until i could get some bug log out of it... but. eh. Well ive Kepler based gt 710 card. Issues: Black Screen when booting with default drivers or nvda_drv=1 mode OR White/Grey Screen with 1 sec mouse movement then freezed keyboard and mouse with nv_disable=1.  Tested: tried numerous ways to boot Mojave but does not works such as > High Sierra/Sierra default Apple geforce nvda kexts, High Sierra Web Drivers, various clover configs, display edids, HDMI dvi port tests... so on. Specs: Tri Boot Setup: Windows 10, Sierra(gt 710 works OOB, or with Web Drivers too), Mojave. ASUS P5G41TM LX Core2Duo E8500 Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce GT 710 2GB I couldn't managed to get logs as half part of installation is still incomplete i.e Mojave installed from USB to HDD after but cant get into login/setup screen due to above mentioned black screen issue. I will try to be as detailed as possible. i had no mac device or any macos dmg/iso to install mojave so performed some steps in windows. Steps i performed: 1. I downloaded Mojave 10.14.1 tar file from Olarila.com which is a complete raw image of Mojave USB stick as the post title says **The image is clean, without any mod with Clover bootloader, essentials kexts and patches inside Clover folder**. Which comes with this OLIRALA_MOJAVE_USB_EFI.zip which i backed up(see attachment OLIRALA_MOJAVE_USB_EFI.zip) 2. made usb in windows with win32diskimager 3. booted from usb and got kernel panic(i dont know which panic it is, see pic) 4. swapped usb EFI folder with Olarila Clover EFI for LGA 775 (see attachment CLOVER.LGA775.OLARILA.zip) 5. booted from usb susccesfully till install screen but throws macOs Mojave could not be installed on this computer 6. i was fed up trying workarounds , i knew i need newer mac ids in clover config.plist to make it install 7. i downloaded Olarila Sierra from same site flashed in another usb stick and it worked out of box without messing any kext or kind. 8. added SMBIOS iMac13,1 in config.plist with clover configurator. 9. booted from usb and succesfully installed Mojave with HFS+ partition on MBR partitioned HDD(dual booting with windows 10) 10. booted from usb to complete partial installation of Mojave but got black screen. For getting all kernel, bug, kext logs i tried Problem Reporting script of black-dragon74 https://github.com/black-dragon74/OSX-Debug which requires active internet connection which is not possible, I tried to mod the script to run local but im not good at bash and it went in errors. I will do provide mojave logs manually from single user -x mode if i can. Ok I managed to run the script locally in single go and it went well problem_reporting_mojave10_14_1_debug_27676.zip if any wants to have a look at script i modded gen_debug_local.sh ___ some other files Patched DSDT.aml.zip currentCloverEFI.zip /CLOVER/misc.zip EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin.zip problem_reporting_mojave10_14_1_debug_27676.zip ___ UPDATE: Mojave 10.14.1 running successfully with some graphic glitches. Here's what i did in short. 1. Patched official app store mojave with dosdude1 mojave patcher tool. 2. Only used its Post Install app with iMac 10,1 config(see pic) to patch already installed Olarila's Mojave(above 1 - 10 steps) with same currentCloverEFI.zip 3. Restarted and it all went well. Detailed(it will confuse u, ignore/skim it.): 1. Downloaded official app store mojave 2. used crazybirdy's mojave mbr patcher tool (MBR-Manual-Method-20181108.dmg) with manual install. 3. when installing it went in errors related to "OSInstall.mpkg". 4. i had few options such as use automatic mbr patcher tool(MBR-Auto-Method14-20181108.dmg) upgrade from high sierra try dosdude1 patcher on official app store mojave 5. i did the above short steps(step no2) at first try. enough tats it. (attaching working mojave files...) Attached log files see post#3 mojave-working.zip
  20. Making a High Sierra USB Installer Entirely From Scratch in Windows This is a proof of concept tutorial, to show it's possible to create a vanilla High Sierra installer, entirely from scratch, in Windows (even without App Store downloaded "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from a real Mac ). @PikeRAlpha's link to Apple's Software Catalog provides us with all the URLs necessary to download the needed files directly from Apple instead of some dubious source from the internet... Pre-Requisites 8GB or larger USB drive Boot Disk Utility v2.1.2017rev021b from @CVAD TransMac (free 15 day trial) Paragon Hard Disk Manager Free Download Installer Files Directly from Apple 1) Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files... BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist (Hint - search page for "InstallESD" to find its URL and others nearby) to a folder named "SharedSupport" on your Windows NTFS drive. A browser download manager (eg Chrono for Chrome, dTA for FireFox) is handy since InstallESD is >4GB ---> allows you to pause/resume interrupted download... 2) Rename InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg 3) Edit InstallInfo.plist with WordPad/text editor to remove the chunklistURL and chunklistid keys for InstallESD, and renaming it from InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg (example of edited file attached to this post)... Note: You can verify the SHA1 checksum of your InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg with the correct ones at this website. Boot Disk Utility to format the Installer USB and Restore OS X Base System HFS partition 1. Format USB with BDU & latest Clover ---> creates boot files in CLOVER partition + second FAT partition 2. Extract 4.hfs from \SharedSupport\BaseSystem.dmg with BDU --> save to it's local folder 3. Restore 4.hfs to USB second partition with BDU ---> 2nd partition becomes bootable "OS X Base System" Paragon Hard Disk Manager to extend HFS Partition to its Full Extent Open Paragon Partition Manager Free and resize the second partition of the USB drive to the full size allowed. Don't forget to apply the changes at the end... Transmac to Copy "SharedSupport" folder to OS X Base System 1. Open the TransMac program and navigate to the HFS+ Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents folder. Right click anywhere in the empty space on the RHS pane and select "Copy Here"... 2. In the next stage, select the "SharedSupport" folder we created above as the "Files and Folders to be copied to the Mac Volume"... Clover Settings Clover configuration is required now. The default config.plist (in the Clover FAT32 partition of the USB) maybe sufficient to boot your machine if you’re lucky. If not, look at the Clover Wiki, Clover Instructions and Clover Configuration Thread for pointers and edit /EFI/Clover/config.plist accordingly with Wordpad or Notepad. The location of the important configuration files for Clover are summarized below config.plist--->EFI/CLOVER folder DSDT.aml with or without SSDT.aml--->EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (don't need one if your DSDT is auto patched by Clover in config.plist) Kexts eg FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement --->EFI/CLOVER/kexts/<osx version> or /Other. NB BootDiskUtility by default already has FakeSMC.kext installed here. You may need to add VoodooPS2Controller for your laptop keyboard/trackpad to work. If UEFI booting, you will most likely need one of the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 drivers copied from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers-off/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. If you want to use the installer to run High Sierra in Windows on VMware, you can follow my guide to set up the Virtual Machine and replace Clover's default config with EFI_Clover for VMware (which is compatible to run in VMware). In the screenshots below, I have attached the USB Installer (in this case PhysicalDrive7) to my macOS Virtual Machine. Reboot the system to the USB installer to install High Sierra ... What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager? Not a problem, as long as we get "OS X Base System" bootable, we can launch terminal from the Utilities Menu to copy the SharedSupport folder over to the Installer app. In essence, we will build the full installer app = 5GB+ on the target HD eg "Macintosh HD", by copying both the "small" installer app = 15MB (on "OS X Base System") and the SharedSupport folder from the NTFS volume (mounted in this example on /Volumes/DATA)... -bash-3.2# cd / -bash-3.2# cp -R Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/ -bash-3.2# cp -R /Volumes/DATA/SharedSupport /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/ ...then start installation with the startosinstall utility... -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app The above steps can be automated with the attached "startosinstall.command" script, which will assemble "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on "Macintosh HD" and launch the startosinstall utility targeting the "Macintosh HD" volume. Copy/download to "Macintosh HD", then run in terminal (after attaching DATA USB with /Shared Support folder)... cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD" chmod +x startosinstall.command ./startosinstall.command Updated Download Links for macOS Mojave 10.14.1_18B75 Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files... BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist Note: In Mojave, Apple has removed the --converttoapfs NO and --applicationpath arguments from the startosinstall utility.... eg to use startosinstall for the above section "What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?", the syntax is now -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD This basically means that for Mojave, the default installation will always convert the target volume to the apfs file system. startosinstall.command.zip InstallInfo.plist_edited_10.13.6.zip InstallInfo.plist_edited_10.14.1.zip

    Vista Previa en Mojave

    Hola: Estoy intentando pasarme al "lado oscuro" y tengo unos problemillas con Vista previa. 1) ¿Donde está Clover Flow? 2) Abro una imagen y aparece una pequeña ventana, luego se abre la imagen en una ventana mas grande pero aparece una parte en gris (abajo a la izquierda) para luego volverse la ventana totalmente gris. ¿Puede ser porque mi gráfica es la HD 4400 de mi I3 que en Mojave no tiene igual rendimiento que en High Sierra? Un saludo y gracias.
  22. 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.
  23. macOS Mojave 10.14.2 beta (18C31g)
  24. After a long run, I successfully upgraded High Sierra to mojave 10.14 on an intel 5 series chipset MotherBoard. MotherBoard: H55ms2 RAM: 6GB GPU1: Saphire AMD RX 460 GPU2: Nvidia 8400GS Storage: 500 GB HDD WD Green. The requirement: 1) macOS pre mojave. 2) macOS mojave installer from Apple store. 3) Empty partition or USB to upgrade from. 4) Un-mout all unused dmgs. 5) GPT/GUID HDD. 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.
  25. macOS-Mojave-XPS13-9350 Hello, this is a simple guide to get OS X 10.14 working on any XPS 13 9350 model This guide uses files from (@syscl) (albeit edited) and full credit to him for the Deploy.sh and DSDT patches. However, his Clover folder is unbootable with Mojave and thus has been redone. However, his Deploy is still retained but edited to remove some DSDT patches that break things on Mojave I did my best to keep the guide simple and for the most part it is, it's inteded for the 6200U non iris but should work with others. (credit @syscl) Issues Wake up via lid is hit or miss (sometimes needs key press) SD Card slot Restarts don't work (endless black screen while turning off but still on) Usage Notes USB Devices eject upon sleep (USB Patches via Deploy were major issue) Changing board number via Clover Config doesn't work always unless serial is changed (No idea..) Audio is controlled via VoodooHDA however prefpane is not nessacary. Never tested USB C anything. Charging should be fine however I'm not sure about others, don't personally use it) What Works Everything else! Setup Notes The new AFPS file system must be used, there is no way to avoid it. Has no noticeable adverse effects except slower boot time It is difficult to repartition AFPS drives and resize them, recommend clean install or you could have one partition smaller than your hard drive that can't be increased unless reformatted Although Volumes will be converted, keep drive as GUID BIOS Settings Set all SATA operation as AHCI Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States Enable UEFI Booting (Disable Legacy if easily confused) Recommended: Clean Install (Preinstall steps) Download latest Mojave version from Mac App store (Register AppleID as developer, enroll your mac, download the preview from the link onsite or google for detailed instructions. Make Bootable media (google how or download app to do it, it's just a terminal command) Download the Latest Clover revision (currently using r4568) and install it to your USB as UEFI and ESP (no need for drivers) Copy The contents of this Github repository into your EFI folder on the USB (Mount the EFI Partition via clover config, efi mounter, etc.) (No Boot Folder in EFI) If you have the same XPS Model as me you can use stock ACPI patched files (6200u, hd 520, 3200x1800,) if not delete contents of both folders (origin, patched) and will fix later via @syscls modified deploy) Installing Mojave (Clean Install) Boot PC off the USB, select your Installer as your Boot drive from clover menu config is currently set to FAKESERIAL and -v. I believe (@syscl's) deploy generates serial # information Once installer is loaded, go to disk utility and format as a GUID Partition Table with whatever partitions you want (Don't format whole drive to afps make sure it's GUID) Run the Mojave installer to the drive wait for it to finish, then turn off) From Clover, select the name of the Mojave Partition (not preboot, recovery, etc.) and not your USB stick either From here the installation will continue. DO NOT CLICK ON MOUSE OR KEYBOARD (crashes installer shortly after at least for me) Post Install (Clean Install) Reboot off your USB once again, load up your Mojave drive. First Boot will take long, if your using my ACPI files (from @sysl's deploy, edited) and have same model you should have everything out of box (except wifi) Regardless, run through the installer and set it all up. (without acpi) At this point screen should be fine, mouse, keyboard, no wifi should be present or bluetooth. No brightness control as well. go to terminal to mount EFI or via clover Config, EFI Mounter, etc, of both USB and the internal disk Copy and REPLACE the EFI folder from the USB into your hard drive. Unplug your USB and reboot and you should be able to boot without the USB now Turn off PC, boot into clover. Don't select a drive and press F4 and Fn+F4 a few times, wait a few seconds, then boot back to the drive Plug back in the USB, mount it's EFI, and run the modified Deploy Script on your Hard Drive EFI partition After deploy is finished, there will be VoodooI2C error as I deleted it from Kexts, for me it breaks Trackpad and Keyboard. For now will be using VoodooPS2. After Modded Deploy You should have no Internet at this point, the following next steps should resolve that. However, your Brightness, lidsleep, USB, bluetooth should be working Using your favourite Kext Installer (Put it on a USB or something to get it on the PC), install (credit @Rehabman's) FAKEPCIID and FAKEPCIID_Broadcomm texts that are included in the ManualKexts Folder Then run "Sudo kextcache -i /" from terminal, reboot, then run it again. By this point your wifi should be fixed, and everything should be done Post Install Notes Your welcome to transfer whatever other kexts you want to S/L/E, personally I leave them in the CLOVER Folder injected. Doing upgrade via mac app store is similar, just partitioning hard drive is harder. Apart from that same process essentially, not recommended Credits Credit Hackintosher.com for basic patches (although @syscl) covered some Credit to @syscl (clearly...) Credit to @Rehabman Credit to @syscl Kexts, and his contributers. ex. Lidwake.kext (although not fully compatible) Support Your welcome to open any issues on this thread, I personally have little DSDT knowledge so I will do my best to help!
