    [GUIDE] [10.12] Sierra on Tab!

    Sierra on Tab! [DISCONTINUED] MY TAB'S MOTHERBOARD FRIED! First of all, I would like to thanks everyone on the Tablets > Samsung section for making OS X on XE700T1C possible, first from Yosemite up to El Capitan. This thread, however, is for Sierra installation, thanks to this thread (and the users there for the help), we gathered some information about our device capabilities and limitation on Sierra: What works: Everything but: What's not working/issues: PS/2 buttons (volume/rotation/Home buttons) - driver problem, needs kext edits For some: WiFi disconnections Wacom Driver (as for now, drivers for Sierra not released yet) They have been released. Intel Wifi/BT (no need to ask why, check the old threads for this device) Battery level may (most of the time) be wrong, please check HWMonitor for the real values, somehow macOS reads it wrong, and at some point it may even show "Replace Soon" (LOL). Battery may be stuck at "Charging" icon if woken up from sleep while being charged and then unplugged, to fix that, replug and unplug the charger. Before starting, neither me nor insanelymac.com is held responsible if anything goes wrong to your computer, or your cat died because you didn't feed it or a nuclear war. We are here to show you how to do stuff, you do it and take full responsibility of it. Part 1: Prepare your Computer: Before doing anything stupid, BACKUP YOUR FREAKING DATA! Don't come crying at me because you've lost your work files, notes or the secret recipe of Krusty Krab, I'll point my finger at you and laugh to my heart's content (yes, but I warned you, and as they say in arabic: 9ad a3thara man anthar قد أعذر من أنذر) YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! For that, you can use Samsung's tool (if you still have it), Microsoft Windows' tool (under windows 8/10 > File History, or under windows 10 using one of these) or using 3rd party tools like CCC or CloneZilla (open-source and totally free, recommended, backup partitions instead of disk, will help to restore single partitions instead of erasing the whole ssd), and if you're under OS X already, use Time Machine to backup, Linux users know what to do (CloneZilla, Aptik...). UPDATE your UEFI Firmware to the latest version, using Samsung Update, don't do anything stupid, let the updater do its thing and fulfill its requirements (full battery, no running program ..). May break your device if you do anything stupid here, don't be stupid then (I just solved world stupidity, praise me!). Prepare your tools: a OS X/macOS computer/VM (deal with it) one 8GB USB (or two, second may be small for clover only, recommended, external HDDs will work too) your ATIV (duh!) your brain, you can buy one if needed (mostly black markets, watch out: illegal) optionally, external USB mouse, as the internal one doesnt have scroll feature, blame ELAN for making the USB drivers not close to PS/2 ones Other than that, prepare yourself mentally, this will be tremendously long you'll pop your eyes out, so do this on a lit room and better in the morning when you're wide-awake, thank me later for that. Make some snakes while you're at it, you'll need them. Part 2: Prepare your install - Install! On your OS X/macOS computer Download (or build) Clover from here (or build from here) Download FakeSMC.kext (choose Binaries) toledaARPT.kext (only for AR9280/5 or compatible, optional) for BCM users, refer please to the older thread, must be the same for you, thought I've read that Sierra has some problems with some BCM cards, good luck then :3 Internet is NEEDED later, and AppleALC.kext and lastly HFSPlus.efi Download PlistEditor (google) Download macOS Sierra from the AppStore (by now the final release should be already published) Open Disk Utility and plug your USB stick. Select Erase > Name it whatever you want > Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) > Scheme : GUID Partition Table (GPT) > ERASE!!! You better have already saved what was there lol Select then Partition > hit + > Make a Clover partition of 500MB MS-DOS (FAT) partition and the rest Installer partition with Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Apply Note 1: for smartasses saying "Why GPT, why not MBR?", A: for some reason El Capitan/Sierra Disk Utility wouldn't let me partition it later on, I don't know what's going on, but only GPT partitioning was permitted, somebody please confirm/fix this. Thanks. Note 2: for smartasses saying "Why did you make a Clover partition instead of using the existing EFI partition from the GPT formatting", A: having a partition to automount is better than mounting a hidden one each time! Thou art done with Disk Utility, Thou shalt close it! Install Clover on the CLOVER (well fat partitions are renamed with capital letters) partition LEAVE only these folders/files from CLOVER folder: ACPI drivers64UEFI kexts > Other misc ROM themes tools CLOVERX64.EFI Copy the kexts from 2. in Other folder under kexts. Copy HFSPlus.efi under driver64uefi and remove VBoxHFS.efi Download this config.plist (credits @rehabman, also, right click on the link > Save Link As ... > and make sure it ends with .plist NOT .txt, if it doesn't, change the Format under it to All Files, and remove .txt) Open it with PlistEditor (haha, aint spoilin') Save and rename it to config.plist then replace CLOVER > EFI > CLOVER > config.plist with this new one. Open Terminal (I use iTerm, better): run this sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --volume /Volumes/Installer Sip some tea, or watch whatever you like (huhuhuuhhuuh), it will take a while (unless you're one of those plebs with ULTRA FAST WHATEVER WHATEVER usb keys) Once done, close terminal, you're ready to rock! On your ATIV! (the exciting part) Boot to your Firmware Setup (aka BIOS Setup, but the name before is the correct one), by using ONE of these methods: Power off > Press and hold Windows button under the screen > Power On > Once you see the SAMSUNG logo, release the Windows Button > TADAA! Power off > Press and hold Volume Down button > Power On > Choose "Enter Setup" > TADAA! Power off > Press repeatedly F2 > Power On [keep pressing] > TADAA! Power off > Press repeatedly F10 > Power On [keep pressing] > Choose "Enter Setup" > TADAA! If you're on windows already: Method 1 Plug a keyboard (dock or usb keyboard) Click on the power off icon (in the charm bar in win 8.x, in Start in win 10) Hover on Reboot Hold Shift while clicking on reboot You should see "Please Wait" Method 2 Open Settings Go to Updates and Recovery (win 8.x) or Update and Security (win 10) Go to Recovery Select Advanced Startup It should start the Advanced menu while showing "Please Wait" Once done, go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > UEFI Firmware Settings TADAA! If you have GRUB2 UEFI> Select System Setup > TADAA! Once in, do these changes: Advanced > Fast BIOS Mode OFF USB S3 Wake-up OFF (you can make it ON, but will drain battery as the dock will stay ON and may also be annoying and has an effect on sleep) AHCI Mode Control Auto Boot > BIOS Adaptive Brightness ON/OFF depending on choice (ON to help your eyes at night) Secure Boot OFF OS Mode Selection UEFI OS Plug your USB key, hit Save, and furiously keep pressing F10 Now you'll see your USB drive in the BOOT menu, select it, and Clover will start up Start up macOS Installer (eat a sandwich meanwhile, unless you have those SUPER ULTRA FAST WHATEVER usb keys!) Open Disk Utility At this point you can still back up and start saving up your files! LAST WARNING! Erase your WHOLE SSD (remember that I told you to save your stuff? Now you know why!) To this point, YOU. ARE. DONE. Close and Install macOS Note 1: You'll see it stuck at "One second left" for more than one second (lol), wait until it reboots. Note 2: If your tablet rebooted after the 1st phase but didnt start the USB key automatically, open the BOOT menu and run clover and start up the Installer, it will resume the Install as it should Note 3: I forgot to mention this, but you should have common sense without me telling that to you, PLUG YER CHARGER! Once done, we'll get to the next step. Part 3: Configure and Fix up your install Congratulations, you've successfully installed macOS Sierra on your Tab, you can clap now! For now, it's all about your IQ level (hope you have 3 digits, and you should if you made it up to here). Now, finish up your install and first boot, and make sure you're connected to the internet (Internal Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB Dongles... I dont care, deal with it, or you may just do Copy-Pasta from another computer, but that wont help for DSDT, for people experienced in OSx86, you know what you can do if you dont have internet). Once on your desktop, test the audio: Go to System Preferences Go to Sound Check if you see an Output device, if yes then proceed, if not, reboot again, if still not: Check your config.plist > Devices > Audio > Inject : 6 Check the kext AppleALC is under kexts > Other and no other folder under kexts but Other. Power off and boot the device up (cold boot) Select "Play feedback when volume is changed Change the volume using the keyboard keys, the buttons on the side wont work (lack of PS/2 drivers) Check TRIM: Hold Alt and click on the Apple menu > System Information Select SATA/SATA Express Select your drive Check TRIM Support : Yes in the description IF NOT: Open terminal Type sudo trimforce enable Accept and confirm Wait until the computer reboots (it will take a while, no worries) SIP and add "Anywhere" to open any app Disabling SIP Reboot to recovery Open terminal Type in: csrutil disable Reboot Enable "Anywhere" under Security and Privacy to allow foreign/unsigned apps Open terminal Type in: sudo spctl --master-disable Done Clover Open terminal and type: diskutil mount disk0s1 Copy the EFI folder in the USB to the EFI partition, so you'll get a EFI folder inside EFI partiton Make a folder named BOOT under folder EFI (so EFI > EFI > BOOT), copy CLOVERX64.EFI from CLOVER folder to it, rename it then (in BOOT folder) to BOOTX64.EFI You'll be able to boot Clover from your SSD UPDD Rewind If you want to buy the UPDD software with the gestures and other stuff, head to http://touch-base.com/and order your software for $171.00 or 133.00 Euros (if you're a superrich pleb!). This software will then be updated and supervised by Touch-Base. If you're broke and want a free (but annoying alternative) follow this: If you want UPDD to control Wacom digitizer and you dont mind recalibrating it each time, download ONE of these: Digitizer ignores pen proximity (no hover) LINK Digitizer reacts to pen proximity (hover) LINK Q: Why do I have to recalibrate the pen after each reinstall? A: Because this driver was made initially for Samsung Slate 7 (the father of our Tab 7) and it had only HD screen (not like our FHD one) and so, when you move the pen over the screen it only reacts to the "HD" resolution portion of the screen. This is what I think, correct me if I'm wrong. if you only want touch with UPDD and want to wait until Wacom releases its driver LINK (this is the driver used by Surface 1 and possibly 2 too) - RECOMMENDED! Now either way, you have to use some of these tools (made by Automator, not some fancy coding or anything): Download this file containing the tools: RE:UPDD (huhuhuhuh) (thanks to @thanh for UPDDrewind) Extract them and throw them in Applications folder Mount the UPDD dmg, throw the installer under /Library/ Run re-updd and let it do its thing (confirm and type your password when asked) Notes: Please go to Part 4 > 7, below before running UPDDrewind After each reboot (under less than 24 hours from the time of the install) run UPDDrewind, you can add it to autorun at boot by adding it to the list in System Preferences > Users and groups > Your Username > Login items After each 24 hours of usage, run re-updd, it will reinstall and ask to run the driver program Reboot (now it should boot from your SSD) DSDT TIME On Clover menu, hit F4, then boot normally Once on the desktop, open MaciASL Copy patched folder from CLOVER > EFI > CLOVER > ACPI > patched to your Desktop Copy DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml (check that SSDT-0 is SataTabl, how? open it with MaciASL and look for OEM Table ID, id it's not, look into all your SSDTs and get the correct one) to a new directory on your desktop name it patched Open DSDT.aml Go to MaciASL > Preferences > Source > + Name: RehabMan repo URL: http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/master Note: You may remove the others, you're free to choose. iASL > ACPI Specifications : 5.1 Close the Preferences and go to the Patch menu, apply these: [bat] Samsung Ativ Book 7 [igpu] Rename GFX0 to IGPU [syn] Fix _PLD Buffer/Package Error [syn] Fix *pnp/pnp lower case Error [usb] 7-series/8-series USB [usb] USB3 _PWR 0x0D (instant wake) For AR9285 only: [wifi] AR9285 WiFi RP02-PXSX : change RP02 in the 5th line to RP01 Download this patch file, click on Open in MaciASL's patch window, select Patch.txt and apply it.

Hit enter and reboot Download these kexts (extract them if needed) and put them in Clover > kext > Other (mount your EFI volume using diskutil mount disk0s1): ACPIBacklight: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-acpi-backlight/downloads ACPIBatteryManager: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-acpi-battery-driver/downloads VoodooPS2Controller: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-voodoo-ps2-controller/downloads Reboot. Part 4: Extras and level up your macOStouch experience: Congrats again! Now you have a fully functional macOS tablet ... not yet! Why? Cuz it sux! like really! Just try it! Well then, to make it "suck less", we need to fix a number of things (HiDPI -cuz 1080p is ultra smoll-, LaunchPad size and UPDD Gestures fixes/enhancements, also wacom and 3G). ALL THESE ARE OPTIONAL, so: HiDPI Fix Open terminal and type: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool true Install and go to Unknown Monitor > Custom Resolutions > + > Scaled Resolution (on top): Here you can add any "Scaled" resolution. I recommend 1366x768 HiDPI resolution, so I add a scaled resolution of 2732x1536 as in a retina display resolution (1366*2 and 768*2) If you want a HiDPI resolution, get the width and heigh, multiply each by two, add it to SwitchResX. Click on Display (on top bar) and hit Write System settings, then File > Save Settings. Reboot LaunchPad 6x3 icons setting: Open terminal and type: defaults write com.apple.dock springboard-rows -int 3; defaults write com.apple.dock springboard-columns -int 6; defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool TRUE;killall Dock Result: For UPDD Guestures: Get my configuration here: UPDD Settings You can still use yours, and open UPDD Gestures > Settings Note: Do not put it on full screen, you'll need to force quit it to use it again (then run UPDDrewind) Wacom: Go to Wacom Drivers webpage Select Bamboo under "All" and download its driver Install Reboot For 3G I didn't test/try, you can always check the Yosemite/El Capitan thread in #1 or #20 for instructions and STARTING from #258 onward to get the new drivers and stuff. WIP Annoying Firewire Update Open terminal and type: softwareupdate --ignore ThunderboltFirmwareUpdate1.2 Configure re-UPDD and UPDDrewind re-UPDD: to run it without typing your password (may reveal your password explicitly to anyone knowing how to use Automator) Open Automator > Open > re-updd.app (or drag-n-drop re-updd on Automator) Go to "Run Applescript" part add password *PUT_YER_PASSWORD_HERE* after administrator privileges Hit the Hammer button above the box to check the syntax Save UPDDrewind: Open it with Script Editor Change INSERT_PASSWORD_HERE by your mac password (leave the quotes) Go to File > Export > File Format: Application Check Run-only Save Now your password wont be explicitly shown for this application, because we made it to run only, no edition/viewing is permitted afterwards. Delete the source UPDDrewind (if you save it somewhere else) KeyUP: download and throw in Applications Brightness: Download: http://bergdesign.com/brightness/#download Throw it in Applications If you're using black theme in macOS, right click on the app > Show Contents > Contents > Resources Rename: display_icon.png > display_icon_black.png display_icon_white.png > display_icon.png Close and reopen the app. CodecCommander: Check the posts under this one You're done!! You can celebrate your intelligence now! What's still needs to work on: Though we did all that, there are still parts that wouldn't just work right: Make UPDDrewind run when it detects that UPDD Gestures is ran An app to combine both re-updd and UPDDrewind, as they are just scripts and still needs refining (or just one AppleScript for password reasons) 3G/SIM card driver (I just didnt test, still, I'm putting it here) Fix the battery percentage, as I found that HWMonitor gives a precise percentage, like I have 98% in HWmonitor while the OS reports 100%, 96% in HWmonitor while OS reports 98% (they align at 50% and they diverge again) 100click/24hours for UPDD Driver (meh! but it's annoying to reinstall each time) VoodooPS2 driver configuration Microphone may stop working in the middle of work. Workaround: use your headphone with microphone or do a sleep-wake cycle. These are not in any given order, and they all matter to the smooth work on our devices. Credits: I would like to give to everyone who has done some work to get this device work: @Rehabman for drivers and DSDT patches @Apple for the SW @HWmonitor team for HWmonitor and FakeSMC and other drivers @everyone in Tablets Forum for every piece of information and work, especially in these threads: Yos/ElC 10.12 report First thread for XE700T1C @anyone I forgot to mention (PM me to add you here, you deserve it) Thank you all Guys, if anything is wrong, just report it, I'll fix it ASAP, thanks

    Intel HD 4000 not working

    I have a laptop model NP530U3C-A04PT I have the system working but I have some problems in solving the rest. No battery detected, the intel hd 4000 graphic does not work I tried the various id-plataform or the distortions on the screen or the screen turns black, I wanted the screen to work from the laptop and HDMI and HDMI audio And I do not know if the power system is working. I put my extracted DSDT Thank you DSDT.aml.zip
  4. Hi! I need help with installation of OS X on samsung np300e7a-s02pl. I've tried with Sierra on Clover but there was a problem with display. Purple stripes and system not scaled to screen, but system was only working with AppleIntelPMpatch. Otherwise it couldnt even boot. In verbose were some lines "Found unsupported chip ... ITL Sequence= 0xffff", "name not a kext" or something. I dont think that cpu could be the problem. Am I doing something wrong or maybe i need to install older OS X? Here are some specs: CPU: Intel Core i3-2330M GPU: Nvidia GT 520M RAM: 6GB
  5. Hi everyone, I got a very odd problem after updating to 10.12.5 and I'll try explaining it to the best I can along all troubleshooting I did... I have a Macbook Pro retina 13" (early 2015) that I've always used with two Samsung external monitors (both are the same model). One of them is connected directly through the HDMI port located on the right side of the Macbook Pro, the other one connected through a thunderbolt-to-HDMI cable. It has always worked until last week when I updated to 10.12.5. After the update, I quickly noticed that my Macbook Pro wouldn’t detect any external display via thunderbolt-to-HDMI. Thus, I started a long process of troubleshooting, and here’s all I’ve tried: Assuming it could have been a defective cable, I’ve tried 3 different ones, still no luck I’ve tried both thunderbolt entry, still no luck I’ve tried thunderbolt-to-VGA, it WORKS, yes, I know this is insane. I’ve tried to connect thunderbolt-to-HDMI (still with all 3 cables) on older Samsung monitors (again two older monitors were the same model, it was my old setup)… it worked Then, I assumed it was the Samsung monitors that were broken (the two of them at the same time…? Odd, isn’t it?). Thus, I tried to connect them on my mac mini, the same way I always did on my Macbook pro… And it works… Then I tried to reproduce the problem on my mom’s Macbook Pro retina 13” (exact same model I have the problem with and same update)... It works Then I assumed the problem must be coming from my Macbook Pro. Thus, I booted on Windows 8 (bootcamp), it works. Starting to lose my mind… I booted from an external hard drive I have (running an early sierra version), it didn’t work either (I had used this external hard drive in the past and it was WORKING) I've done a factory reset, still not working EDIT (forgot to mention): SMC, no luck NVRAM, no luck So in a nutshell, the problem seems to appear only via thunderbolt-to-HDMI, only on this specific Macbook Pro, and specifically on macOS. I’m no expert and I don’t know what else I can do. Of course I've tried contacting Apple many times but they keep blaming me for updating my mac and/or Samsung for making the environment not compatible, which I believe is a total nonsense. Has anyone encounter any similar problem? Does anyone know what it could be? I’m desperate so I’d like to thank y’all in advance for your help. Cheers

  7. Hi friends, I just got a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe SSD (500 gb). I put it in my Asus X99-A M.2 slot and it won't even show up in BIOS settings. I have the most current BIOS version installed (3402 as of today). It's not showing up anywhere. When i put my Samsung XP951 in the M.2 slot it works just fine, but the 960 Evo won't. I also tried 2 separate 960 Evos, bc i thought the first one was defective. Any insights?
  8. Hello, I've updated my Ativ today to Sierra GM using the App Store, just wanted to share my experience. First of all, i've been running El Cap for a few months now, thanks to this guide, so all credits go for duduclx and the folks who contributed there. Still no Wacom drivers for Sierra, so no pressure sensitivity on the screen. If this is important for you don't update yet. Haven't tried it yet, but the Wacom drivers for Sierra are published. Ok, these are the steps I took: -------------------- 1 - As usual, backup your ElCap install. I use Clonezilla. 2 - Download macOS Sierra GM from the Store. 3 - Update Clover to the last version. I did that by opening Clover Configurator, update it to the last version, and then select Install/Update Clover. It will download the last version, just check that you are installing it on your current OS X drive and that the same options as duduclx guide are marked. 4 - After Clover is update, mount your EFI partition and copy FakeSMC.kext, NullEthernet.kext, to /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/ (You can delete all the others folders if you want) 5 - Download and copy HFSPlus.efi to /EFI/Clover/Drivers64UEFI 6 - Launch the Sierra installer. When the system reboots, select Boot OS X Install in Clover. The OS will start updating, and eventually it will reboot. In Clover, select Boot Mac OS X, and the final part of the update process will begin (VoodooPS2Controller.kext caused a kernel panic in this boot, i had to enter recovery and remove it from /Volumes/OSX/System/Library/Extensions/. I guess you can delete it from ElCap before launching the Sierra installer). 7 - After the update is done, you can configure your Apple id, etc. I had no sound, use EasyKext or whatever and reinstall AtivHDA.kext and the rest of the kexts in the Post installation section of duduclx guide. Reboot and you're done. -------------------- I mainly use the Ativ hooked up to a 23" FHD screen. Xcode, Logic X, the App Store, iCloud, are working as good as ever. Only flaws so far: - No Wacom drivers yet. - The mic isn't working so no Siri. Wasn't working for me in El Capitan either, never took the hassle to figure it out why. - Physical volume keys on the side of the tablet are not working. If anyone knows how to fix the last 2 issues would be much appreciated :-) P.S. English is not my main language. Also, i'm no expert so maybe there are things that could have been done better or not needed to be done at all.

  10. Hi there, I have no experience with Hackintosh, only that I have an old 2009 iMac. I recently realized that I want another Mac, however I don't really have the money and realized that it was actually just the OS I was missing, because there's not really anything to love about Apple or their hardware prices. Anyway, I have a Samsung NP350E7C laptop which I don't really use, and I'd ideally like to install macOS on there, however it's kind of confusing looking for compatible parts, and there's nothing to say that Hackintosh is compatible with the actual model of the laptop. An alternate option would be to build a new PC on the cheap, however I'd much prefer to do it on my laptop as it'd obviously cost a lot less. Would my laptop be suitable to install macOS on? I'd really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks, Seán
  11. Num belo final de semana estive sem nada para fazer, então testei instalar o El Captain no meu notebook Samsung Expert X30. A maioria dos meus problemas que tive foram facilmente resolvidos seguindo os tutoriais aqui do fórum (teclado, som, rede e etc). Porém meu maior desafio foi ativar a aceleração gráfica da Intel HD 5500, mas com um certo esforço consegui. Vou deixar aqui registrado meu legado: Importante ressaltar que não me responsabilizo por danos que possam ocorrer no seu equipamento. Siga esses passos por sua conta e risco. Esse procedimento funciona para qualquer notebook que utiliza a BIOS P08RDD. Eu não sei ao certo se são todos da familia Expert, por isso é bom confirmar sua BIOS antes de continuar. O EXE da BIOS que utilizei foi a ITEM_20160513_21598_WIN_P08RDD.exe Em meus testes eu percebi que o Expert X30 possui 32MB de DVMT o que causa os KP ao forçar o ig-platform-id da Intel HD (0x16160000 ou 0x16160002). O que resulta numa infelicidade de ficar sem aceleração de vídeo. Depois de uma tarde inteira, consegui descomprimir a seção Setup da BIOS do Expert X30. Segue as informações de DVMT: DVMT (0x145) - 32MB (0x1) <-- Padrão - 64MB (0x2) - 96MB (0x3) <-- Vamos alterar para essa opção - 128MB (0x4) Utilizando o EFI Shell eu consegui alterar a DVMT para 96MB e assim ativando a aceleração gráfica no El Captain: setup_var 0x145 0x3 Sucesso!

    NVMe Express digging

    Hey all, since many of us are interested in getting our NVMe drives running I started to dig a little bit in Apple's NVMe driver. Since im not an expert on debugging I could need some help here and there. My finding so far: Hardware IDs: from my Samsung 950 Pro 0:107 0:000 PCI (00|0B:00.00) : 144D A802 class=010802 mapped via: PciRoot(0x0)\Pci(0x1D,0x0)\Pci(0x0,0x0)\VenHw(CF31FAC5-C24E-11D2-85F3-00A0C93EC93B,80) Whereas for my board i got the following sunrise point connectors for pci express: Device 8086:A102 Sunrise Point-H SATA controller [AHCI mode] Device 8086:a118 Sunrise Point-H PCI Express Root Port Device 8086:A115 Sunrise Point-H PCI Express Root Port #6 Device 8086:A114 Sunrise Point-H PCI Express Root Port #5 Device 8086:A110 Sunrise Point-H PCI Express Root Port #1 Apples SSD Controller is: Model: "Apple Storage controller" Vendor: pci 0x106b "Apple Inc." Device: pci 0x2001 Lets get to the fun part: I found at least one check to determine if there is an Apple SSD inserted to stop the NVMe Driver from working: 00000000000028be add rbx, 0x18 00000000000028c2 lea r15, qword [ds:0xe3ad] ; "APPLE SSD" 00000000000028c9 mov rdi, r15 ; argument "s" for method _strlen 00000000000028cc call _strlen 00000000000028d1 mov rdi, r15 ; argument "s1" for method _strncmp 00000000000028d4 mov rsi, rbx ; argument "s2" for method _strncmp 00000000000028d7 mov rdx, rax ; argument "n" for method _strncmp 00000000000028da call _strncmp 00000000000028df test eax, eax 00000000000028e1 je 0x290b 0xe3ad = "APPLE SSD" Bascially the method IsBarrierSupported() takes the length of the device descriptor cuts it at a length of "APPLE SSD"[0-8] and does a string comparsion with "APPLE SSD" and it does even more.. But it looks like the controller is not even properly initialized maybe because of the device/vendor ids If anyone of you is more skilled in osx debugging maybe someone can help me out to get my IONVMeFamily up and running in debug mode would be superb to see where the actual load of the kext is failing. Btw. it seems the kext is not automatically loaded I had to start it manually, so we definitly need to forceKextLoad it with clover. (maybe it is started with macbook 13 retina smbios?) Regards Jan
  13. Hi everyone, After a lot of work I finally got Yosemite back installed on my PC. There is only one problem: I have 3 screens, 2 times DVI and 1 time VGA. The problem is that I'm not able to use the VGA screen in MAC OS X. when I'm booting into OS X my pc is using the VGA monitor, but when the boot is finished and I'm ready to enter my password the VGA monitor disconnects and one of the DVI monitors takes place as main screen. I'm hoping someone is able to help me, because unfortunately I'm absolutely out of ideas.. Would love to hear from you guys! Kind regards MrOfficer PS. Screw TonyMacx86! Got banned two times but had no idea for what. Now they don't want to un ban me, but I don't even want that anymore, you're my main osx86 forum from now on

    Samsung SM951

  15. Hi there I have a fully working yosemite installation on a clevo w870cu. I've edited my dsdt and everything works flawlessly. Up until now I've had an old LG monitor with a DVI port on it. This laptop has an hdmi and dvi output both of which worked. The hdmi with an adaptor of course since the monirot only had a DVI and vga port. My LG monitor died a few days ago and couldn't be fixed so I bought a new samsung monitor. I connected the monitor via hdmi and yosemite just froze. I tried the same from my dvi port with an hdmi adaptor on the monitor and still it just freezes. I wanted to shoot myself at that point but I don't have a gun. If I bought with the monitor connected I get to a grey screen and it freezes. I use chimera boot loader and tried different flags with no luck. I've tried nvenabler64 which i'm not sure is even compatible with yosemite no luck again. I've tried natit. I installed clover which is more advanced. I had the same issue so I booted to windows saved my video cards rom and used nvcap maker to get my nvcap value. I got clover to use my nvidia gtx 285m rom with the correct nvcap values. I tried a whole bunch of different graphics settings in clover. Now I got to a point where my laptop screen goes black when the external monitor is connected, the external monitor doesn't get any signal, but now if I disconnect the external monitor the laptops monitor turns back on and yosemite is not frozen. The monitor works fine on windows btw with both dvi and hdmi. I don't understand why my older monitor worked just fine and the new one doesn't. I really can't work without an external monitor because I can't see well, I'm a musician working with apple logic pro x and I had to stop working. If I find no solution I'm considering to buy a new desktop customac for my new monitor! Which sucks bigtime because I can work fine with this laptop's specs and I really don't want to spent 1000 euros to buy a desktop with similar specs. I tried to look on ebay to find the same monitor that I had with no luck. I'm sorry for the long post and I'm not even sure I posted at the right place. If anyone has any idea why this could be happening please let me know. Otherwise can someone please shoot me and get this over with? Thanks! :-)

    Guide Samsung Ativ 700t (Yosemite)

    Samsung Ativ700t OsX 10.10 Dp1 Guide For this install I will be using two USB drives, one as an installer the second to install to. Alternatively you could create two partitions on the installer USB if its big enough (16gb or larger) and install to the second partition this however will slow down the install. Later when I have the install stable enough I will extend this guide to make it an internal multi boot guide. _______SHOW HIDDEN FILES_____ In terminal copy and paste these commands defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean true killall Finder _____Creating USB INSTALLER_____ Step 1—— Right click Install OS X 10.10 Developer Preview.app and go to show package Contents/ Contents/ Shared Support/ then mount InstallESD.dmg. Rightclick BaseSystem.dmg click open to mount OS X Base System as well. Step 2—— In Disk Utility partition a usb hard drive or thumb drive as Mac osx extended journaled with a GUID partition table. Step 3—— click “OSX Base System” under “BaseSystem.dmg” in the left side of DiskUtility then click Restore. Drag USB partition you just created into the Destination slot. (OS X Base System should be in the “source” slot). Click Restore at the bottom. Give it time to transfer. Step 4—— Your drive will now be renamed “OS X Base System”, right click it and select reveal “OS X Base System” in finder. Now right click OS X Base System and go to Get info. In info rename it to “Installer”. Step 5—— In the right side of DiskUtility, right click OS X Install ESD and open it, there should be a folder called Packages. Copy the Packages folder to your “Installer” drive that you just made in the folder System > Installation. Delete the “Packages” alias in the same folder. Step 6—— Back in Disk Utility reopen the original OS X Install ESD, copy BaseSystem.chunklist and BaseSystem.dmg to from there to the external “Installer” partition. Step 7—— Now open Clover_v2k_r2703.pkg click Continue > Continue > Change Install Location Select the “Installer” partition. Click Customize Select Install for UEFI booting only select a theme Under Drivers64UEFI select -EmuVariableUefi-64 -OsxAptioFixDrv-64 -PartitionDxe-64 Then click install. Step 8—— When its finished you will notice a new mounted partition called EFI Navigate to EFI > EFI > CLOVER > kexts > Other Paste all the kexts from the Preboot folder of the downloaded Ativinstallpack into the Other folder. Step 9—— Once finished eject your newly made installer usb drive and plug it into one of the ports on the ativ. Keep in mind the top port is the only 3.0 version and in theory should install the quickest. Boot the device holding volume down, once the boot menu appears select the UEFI version of your usb installer. (ex: UEFI:Sandisk ) hit enter. Once inside clover select your usb drive and hit enter again then wait of the installer to load. Click Continue > Continue > Agree and select the second partition you want to install to. For me this is another USB drive. Step 10—— When the install is finished the computer will restart. Now repeat steps 7 and 8 on the newly made drive where you installed yosemite to install clover and the pre boot kexts to that drive. Boot the new drive, go thru the initial setup and then use kext wizard to install the kexts in the “POSTBOOTSTANDARD” folder of the ativ pack. After that repair caches and restart. You should now have brightness with slider, battery icon (no accuracy), and volume rocker (still without sound). I also included a postboot with macpwn folder in the kext pack incase you used the macpwn method because you will actually have working battery. But I will not include a macpwn guide because its pretty straight forward. This guide is more bare bones for anyone to use. Also I want to give credit to shad0whack3r his guide can be found here. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298477-how-to-install-os-x-yosemite-on-a-macintosh-using-clover/ Ativ Yosemite pack v1 6-14-2014.zip
  17. Fala galera! Depois de me aventurar com sucesso em uma outra experiência montando um hack com o SL (obrigado Allan e PimentelX86), parti para outro laptop com um hardware mais razoavel. Trata-se de um Samsung NP300E4C-AD2BR, que contém o seguinte: Processador Intel® Core™ i3 2328M (2.20 GHz, 3 MB L3 Cache) Chipset Intel® HM75 Video Intel® HD 3000 Graphics -- Preparei um pendrive de instalação conforme detalhado aqui, e então criei este tópico pra ir documentando e ajudando quem passar por experiência semelhante. Bom, de cara já tive problemas... O boot travou em: ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint : Dictionary Object : HIDDefaultParameters Value : ?? -- Dicas? Valeu!!
  18. Hello everybody! After several times trying to install OS X Yosemite on my Samsung SSD 840 evo, I finally figured out how solve a problem that many people are having: The system UI freezes, out of the blue! Requirements: 1- OS X 10.10.4+ 2- Samsung SSD (830 or newer) 3- A CD or Pendrive. WARNING: DON'T FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL IF YOU AREN'T FACING ANY ISSUE WITH YOUR SSD! WARNING 2: WHEN FLASHING A FIRMWARE ON YOUR SSD, YOU NEED TO KEEP IN YOUR MIND THAT YOU CAN MESS YOUR SSD UP! WARNING 3: I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY IF YOUR COMPUTER BLOWS UP, OR ANYTHING ELSE! HOW TO: First step: Do a clean installation, and configure all your hardware, but DON'T enable trim! Second step: This step is optional, but very recommended. We are going to update our ssd firmware with the latest from samsung, that is already modified for MAC. This step only works on 830, 840, 840 Pro & 840 Evo; since only these devices have a firmware update on samsung's website. So, go to samsung's download site, and scroll down until you see the MAC download session. Then download the firmware for your ssd model, and save somewhere. Now open disk utility, select your pendrive/CD and restore the iso to your device. OK, now restart your computer and then boot into the device you restored. (Legacy mode, so, enable CSM) Follow all the DOS steps, and when it finish, restart your pc. Third step: Now open your terminal, and paste this command: $ sudo trimforce enable Restart your pc again, and look into About This Mac > System Report > SATA/SATA Express Then, select your ssd and look the description if trim is enabled. Now, it should work with any problem! Any question, just ask!

  22. It isn't about MAC It just gift for U
  23. I'm trying to install Mavericks onto a Samsung NP350V5C-A0NUK. But when I boot the install USB with Clover it gets stuck at waiting for root device. The USB stick seems to go dead as well (it usually pulses orange when active or idle). I can't see any kexts loading for USB. In fact it just loads the few core kexts and my FakeSMC, VoodooPS2 etc and then goes dead. Steps I've taken: Format 16GB USB stick as GUID Create Mavericks Installer with the createinstallmedia tool Copied over Clover r2988 EFI folder I've attached my clover config. Anyone have any clue as to where I'm going wrong? Wasn't expecting to fail so early into the process... Here's a shot just before it pops up the still waiting for root device line: config.zip
