  3. Hi! I'm Kris! I hope my topic is in a good section. I am asking you guys for help in this difficult hackintosh problem. For a very long time I tried to solve it myself but I have no idea how I can solve this problem. Description of the problem My problem is that I do not have access to any apple service. I am unable to log into the App Store using my Apple ID. I am unable to log into iCloud account in system preferences. iMessage and Facetime also do not work. Messages that I get when I try to log in: "An error occurred during activation. Try again" in iMessage: "An error occurred during activation. Try again" in App Store: "This device or computer can not be verified. Contact the support department for help" in Face Time: "There was an error during activation. Try again" In summary, I am unable to log in to any apple network service.

    Come configurare asus ac51usb wifi

    Ciao ho acquistato questo adattatore wifi in quanto sembrava essere compatibile fino a sierra e mi serve per un altro hackintosh in casa non raggiungibile da ethernet e per il prezzo(circa 20€) era meglio degli edimax da 300mbps solo che sto riscontrando dei problemi nel farlo funzionare, ho installato il kext per l'mtk 7610u da qui e installato con kext wizard(manualmente non dava risultati) per poi installare il software di asus solo che quest ultimo non riesco a farlo funzionare dato che si avvia e compare per poco l'iconcina in alto a destra per poi scomparire e non si apre mai l'utility come su windows, qualcuno ha questa o usb simili e sa come sistemare questo problema? osx mi vede l'esistenza di un wifi ma non mi sembra mi dia modo di connettermici in alcun modo. Grazie

    Wifi usb high sierra

    Non sono sicuro di essere nella sezione giusta ma stavo cercando un adattatore wifi usb compatibile con high sierra per un paio di hackintosh(di mio fratello e di un amico) che non possono essere connessi in lan e non riesco a trovare niente né nei negozi di elettronica né su amazon, avete qualche suggerimento? Ho anche provato una breve ricerca su google sia in italiano che in inglese senza ottenere risultati :v

    Post install Asus X550JX DM217T

    Sto aiutando un ragazzo ad installare High Sierra su un Asus X550JX. Le specifiche sono: i7 4720HQ GTX 950M HDD 1TB RAM 8GB Wi-Fi Atheros AR9462 AR5B22 Siamo a buon punto. Non funziona audio(forse id errato), wifi(se si riesce, so che nel 90% è un no), percentuale della batteria e bisogna disattivare la dedicata(da BIOS non è possibile). Se viene rimosso l'SSDT per disattivare la dedicata(è quello allegato nella guida di Gengik) il sistema non parte più. Se potete dare un occhio al config perché ogni tanto fa qualche glitch grafico. Grazie mille
  8. On macOS Sierra DP1, when using a BMC94532Z NGFF WiFi card, AirportBrcm4360.kext no longer successfully loads. This problem is caused by the driver not being able to initialize the fvco (frequency voltage controlled oscillator). Apply the following patch in Clover to enable WiFi using the BCM94352Z: Kext: AirPortBrcm4360 Find: 81F952AA00007529 Replace: 81F952AA00006690 Through Clover config.plist: <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360 - fcvo</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data>gflSqgAAdSk=</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>gflSqgAAZpA=</data> </dict>

  10. Hi everyone! I am using Lion 10.7.3 on an Asus P5W DH deluxe, everything works like a charm except for one thing: the built-in wifi. I've installed the Realtek 8187L driver and the OS recognizes the wifi card, but is shows up as an Ethernet connection at the Network Preference Panel, and I can't find a way to configure it as an Airport connection, in order to select a proper network and to type in the password. Any ideas? Thanks!

    wifi PCIe scheda wireless non riconosciuta

    ciao a tutti e grazie a chi mi risponderà, ho installato su una gigabyte GA-945PL-S3L iATKOS L2 (10.7.2) a aprte l'audio che sembra irrisolvibile ho installato una scheda wifi liteon di un acer x1700, per chi avesse bisogno di info in più può recuperarle dal sito di acer nella sezione download, comunque dato che non mi da in alcun modo il modello ho fatto delle ricerche online e sono arrivato su sito di ralink e da qui scaricato il tool ma comunque non viene rilevata nessuna scheda installata nemmeno dal software. una cosa credo sia rilevante è che in alto a destra non compare per niente il simbolo del wifi di airport e in automatico dalle impostazioni, non leggendo la scheda wifi, in network non posso impostare un profilo wireless. tra le applicazioni l'utiliairport sembra essere installata ma credo che sia un'altra cosa perchè quando la lancio sembra cercare dispotivi wirelless nelle vicinanze ovviamente senza successo, ma mi sembra che non sia nemmeno la stessa airport delle impostazioni network (non ho capito bene questa cosa). spero che qualcuno riesca a ad aiutarmi. grazie ancora.

    Bluetooth & WiFi n00b

    Hi All, New to the forum and hackintoshing. I have built TonyMacX's mini deluxe with the GA-Z87N-WIFI mobo and am running Mavericks/10.9.4. WiFi apparently is a no go and it turns out the bluetooth has serious issues. I had it working at one point, but now it's gone AWOL and from all I have read it doesn't look like anyone has got it going properly. My situation: I don't really *need* WiFi, it would be a nice extra. I need bluetooth only because I have a wireless mouse I rather like (in fact I had to borrow this wired mouse )! Can someone introduce me to this world of WiFi & BT on hackintosh? I found Toleda's guide and read a few other threads. Is there a plug and play option available to me? I want to minimise any additional software fixes to avoid agony when I inevitably update the OS. It seems like the only plug and play for BT is a dongle, such as GMYLE – is that right? I am very fond of the little aerial that came with my mobo and I had hoped to simply replace the card on the mobo, which I think is a mini-PCIe? Are there any options better than the one's Toleda mentions? Probably really obvious stuff, but I'd love some help from someone more experienced. Thanks for reading.
  13. Hello there, I want to start this topic because I know there are many hardware shipping last generation Intel cards, which incorporates 2,4 and 5 GHz bands. I could be posible to make it work with help of the community. There are currently two projects attempting to fix these wifi chipsets, but they doesn't work, they only show version of firmware of the card or attempt to load it. These are based on Linux drivers https://github.com/ammulder/AppleIntelWiFiMVM/releases/ These are based on FreeBSD drivers https://github.com/bjornefitte/IntelWifiPort I'm not a very experienced programmer, but I can help, and I have hardware to test, I got a Intel 3165. However, bluetooth works with some issues. It can connect with my Android and browse its contents, permitting to download and upload files.
  14. Hackintosh Spectre XT 15t-400 Touchsmart Sierra For complete info go to my repo https://github.com/joaquinperaza/Hackintosh-HP-SpectreXT-15t-4000 This i just a future discussion post. I want to contribute as thank of all your help. I made this repo to collect all related info about this laptop. I am not using other dsdt or ssdt patches than clover ones, but I am open to your contributions. Where to start: Have a Mac? So prepare a USB using your preferred method, you can choose: Clover (Base guide Dont have a mac? Dont worry you can use a virtual box machine in your HP: To set up the vm use: http://www.wikigain.com/install-macos-sierra-10-12-virtualbox/ I discovered and posted how to run usb intaller in VirtualBox VM using Linux/Windows host:https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/5zks4c/create_sierra_bootable_usb_from_virtualbox/ I followed this guide that was the most similar to this model: https://www.google.com.uy/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiT2KW8v9HTAhWGIJAKHRtkAZIQFgggMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.reddit.com%2Fr%2Fhackintosh%2Fcomments%2F5pwtdd%2Fhp_spectre_xt_pro_13b000_running_macos_sierra%2F&usg=AFQjCNEXuPraFVEtqD7am308-wVd7ssCZQ So I did it with UxxxBxxx, with this options: UEFI Mode and Inject Intel USB installer tunning: After completing the UxxBxxx installation donwload clover configurator and add the settings that appear in cloverconfIMG folder. PD:You should also select -v (verbose) flag in boot section in first tests. PD:Ignore ket patches for the moment Copy the drivers inside the drivers64UEFI folder to your EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder. Copy the kexts from the kext folder to your EFI/CLOVER/kexts EXCLUDE VoodooHDA inside kext/10.12 folder. Sierra install: Now you're ready to run Sierra installer (if you are lucky the only issue you would have is no mouse and keyboard during install). Follow normal instructions for install OSX. Key points: Disable Secure boot in bios and disable legacy, enable cpu virtualization Boot vith -v flags in first tests. Post installation: Install those 'post install kext' with EasyKext Pro: VoodooPS2Controller.kext (Enable mouse and keyboard) USBInjectAll.kext (enable touchscreen and webcam) Dont install the optionals fixes yet. Reagarding audio i have tested to solution: Apply AppleHDA patched kext (Inside other files folder) //No microphone Use VoodooHDA installer and add the VoodooHDA inside kext/10.12 folder to clover. VoodooHDA provide microphone and beats audio but less quality and no volume. Hdmi fix: The plattform 0x01660004 dont have connectors, but is the onlyone compatible with our screen, so I patched the HEX table for you to make our screen compatible with 0x01660008 wich natively support our HDMI port. Just delete AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext from your System/Library/Estensions folder and immediately install the one inside kext folder/optional fixes with EasyKext Pro Then add this kextspatches in CloverConfigurator: | Name | Find | Replace | Plist checked? | | ------ | ------ | ------ | ------ | | AppleIntelFramebufferCapri | 04006601 01030101 00000002 | 04006601 01020402 00000004 | NO | | AppleIntelFramebufferCapri | 05030000 02000000 30020000 00000000 01000000 40000000 00000000 01000000 40000000 00000000 01000000 40000000 00000000 00000000 | 05030000 02000000 30020000 02050000 00080000 06000000 03040000 00040000 81000000 04060000 00040000 81000000 00000000 00020011 | NO | Wifi fix: Unfortunately our Intel Centrino N wifi card is not compatible i bought an Atheros AR9285 AR5B95, just replace and add install kexts inside Atheros AR9285 AR5B95 Sierra with EasyKext. | Name | Find | Replace | Plist checked? | | ------ | ------ | ------ | ------ | | AirPortAtheros40 | pci168c,30 | pci168c,2b | YES | Author Disclaimer: The majority of the software is public on the internet, I only have patched some files and wrote this guide, I am not responsible of any possible damage to your PC, do it at your own risk despite I consider it worth it.

  15. Buenas Abro este hilo con la esperanza de si es posible habilitar el wifi en mi hackintosh ya que he leído diversas cosas de que si se puede o que no es soportada y probé habilitarla pero no he sabido/podido. En si el chip que monta es Broadcom BCM43227 Vendor: 14E4 Device: 4358 Si no fuese compatible, ¿alguna opción que sea de las tipo mini compatible de forma nativa? Gracias y un saludo.

    BCM94360CD or BCM943602CS?

    Hi, I want to buy wifi/bluetooth combo card which I hope works natively and let my mouse to work in motherboard UEFI and Clover boot screen. I saw two choices. Which one to choose BCM94360CD or BCM943602CS or any other suggestion? Thanks,
  17. Hi, I'm trying to customise the WiFi toggle touch key that my HP Pavilion dv6-2193el (BCM43225 wifi controller with RehabMan's FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi kext) uses to enable/disable WiFi on OS X 10.11.5. The problem is that the default behaviour of the switch is to disconnect from my current ssid and never reconnect to it. So I proceeded on patching my DSDT. By using RehabMan's ACPIDebug, I found that this button triggers EC Query _Q15 event, so I proceeded to edit that Method. Here is the original code extracted by Clover: Method (_Q15, 0, NotSerialized) // _Qxx: EC Query { Store (0x15, P80H) Store (CMSR (0x49), WAB1) If (And (WAB1, 0x08)) { And (WAB1, 0xF7, WAB1) Store (Zero, RFLE) } Else { Or (WAB1, 0x08, WAB1) If (LEqual (WAOK, Zero)) { If (And (WBLC, One)) { Store (One, RFLE) } } } If (LEqual (WAOK, Zero)) { If (And (WAB1, 0x0A)) { Or (WAB1, 0x02, WAB1) Or (WAB2, 0x02, WAB2) Or (WAB3, 0x02, WAB3) } Else { Or (WAB1, 0x0A, WAB1) Or (WAB2, 0x0A, WAB2) Or (WAB3, 0x0A, WAB3) } Or (WAB5, 0x08, WAB5) Or (WAB4, 0x08, WAB4) } Else { Store (0x07, WAB5) Store (Zero, WAB4) If (And (WAB1, 0x02)) { Or (WAB4, One, WAB4) } If (And (WAB2, 0x02)) { Or (WAB4, 0x02, WAB4) } If (And (WAB3, 0x02)) { Or (WAB4, 0x04, WAB4) } } TRAP (TRTI, 0x20) If (LEqual (WAOK, One)) { If (WA40) { Store (0x1B, ^^^^WMID.WEID) } Else { Store (0x05, ^^^^WMID.WEID) } Store (Zero, ^^^^WMID.WMED) Notify (WMID, 0x80) } } I'm a newbie on DSDTs so what I thought was to provide a nice way to trigger a custom global service on OS X that could enable/disable wifi via networksetup. So I looked inside RehabMan's VoodooPS2Keyboard kext (I use it to enable and customise my keyboard) source code and I found a way to trigger the F13 button, in order to provide to Settings a button to bind my service. First of all I replaced the Method with this code, just to try: Method (_Q15, 0, NotSerialized) // WiFi Toggle { Notify (PS2M, 0x0478) // Note: I have either PS2M and PS2K, but with PS2M brightness keys work } and I made a service (shell script) via Automator that could switch wifi, binding the F13 key (I think OS X doesn't use it(?)) to it through Settings app if [ "$(networksetup -getairportpower en1 | grep -o 'On\|Off')" == "On"]; then networksetup -setairportpower en1 Off else networksetup -setairportpower en1 On fi pretty self-explanatory. Note: I use en1 because en0 is my ethernet card That worked!... almost. I lost the feature that the button's LED turns Blue when the connection is active or Red when it is inactive. I tried to make numerous edits on the Method naïvely and tried to disable the default behaviour of disconnecting from the network. I didn't get the correct solution. I noticed that the code has three IF statements, so one of that controls the LED state, but I can't find the right statement neither I find the correct solution of throwing the PS2M event when there is other code (OS X throws me an error sound and I cannot understand why, neither system.log is reporting anything - when there is only the Notify call, the F13 key event and service are nominal) My question: one of you experts could gently help me on understanding this code and make a functional and (possibly) optimised way of doing this? I'm sure that my method of calling a service via PS2 key event is not really the best one. ### Another problem: during these numerous tests and reboots my WiFi controller stopped working. On OS X it says that it is Off and I can't turn it on. I tried to reinstall the kext, use the original DSDT, reinstall OS X... but nothing happened. System.log reports this messages at every system startup: kernel: AirPort: Link Down on en1. Reason 8 (Disassociated because station leaving). kernel: en1::IO80211Interface::postMessage bssid changed UserEventAgent: Captive: CNPluginHandler en1: Inactive airportd: airportdProcessDLILEvent: en1 attached (down) I tried to boot with Fedora (Linux) and WiFi doesn't work, same thing: it says that it's off and I can't turn it on. My question: Did I "fried" my WiFi? Solution: EC reset ### Footnotes: As always, English is not my madre lingua. Hope to be clear. Thanks for your patience.
  18. Hey guys, I have had a z97 pro wifi ac build for about a year now, and it works great, except I cannot get the onboard bluetooth to work. It shows up in my system profiler under USB as "BCM20702A0". When I use a kext named "asusBCM20702A0Bluetooth.kext", the usb gets recognized, but it doesnt pair with my devices (it sees them, but then it says pairing failed). I already deleted the bluetooth plist and restarted. I am on clover, and on yosemite 10.10.5. I have also tried other kexts (bcrmpatchram) but that one doesnt do anything. Does anyone have a z97 on yosemite 10.10.5 with working onboard bluetooth? thanks

    About BCM943142 in OSX

    Works! Thank you! Do you also have something for the WiFi (and BT)? WiFi chipset is a Broadcom BCM43142.
  20. Hi, I just successfully completed a fresh install of High Sierra. The system is made of: Gigabyte GA-Z87N-Wifi CPU i7 4770S 16GB RAM Gigabyte Geforce 1070 mini Samsung 840 pro sata SSD Azurewave aw-ce123h Imac 14,1 SMBIOS I installed via a usb drive created with createinstallmedia and clover. I then added Nvidia web drivers, AtherosE2200Ethernet, IntelMausiEthernet.kex, FAKEPCIID, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi and BrcmPatchRAM2 Everything is up and running but I have a couple of niggles: - the wifi country code is US. Up to Sierra I had a kext patch in clover to change it to GB but it doesn't work anymore. Is there any way to change the country code with FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi? - Handoff appears as not supported. I also had a patch for this in Sierra but it doesn't work now. Is there a new string to patch IOBluetoothFamily to enable it? Thanks!
  21. I'm trying to install the driver for EP-N8508 to be used on Yosemite, but all the drivers get installed, the Wireless Utility App crashes without launching. Any idea what is happening and how to fix it?
  22. Maybe this isn't a topic for the New Users Lounge, but the thing is that I am a new user to this matter and I also CAN'T create a new topic in the developer section. So here it goes. I am trying to build a driver for my USB Wireless Card (TP-Link TL-WN722N) which isn't supported in Mac. I also found it very commented around some other websites, mainly asking for a supporting kext, then I made my mind. The 1srt question should be simple: What kind of project should I build in Xcode? One using IOKit framework (user space) or one using Kernel framework (kernel space)? I have been having troubles to get the basics fully working maybe because I am using the wrong start.
  23. Hi, I have this wifi card that I bought because it's supposed to work right out of the box (which it does technically) but the thing does not get even close to my real wifi speed and is constantly disconnecting completely. I'm also not able to get 5GHz working on it but that's not as big of a problem. My current OS is Linux and on that I get a stable 55mbps download speed but in OSX, I get around 2mbps. The wifi adapter is the TP Link TL WDN4800. I really need some help with this, thanks.

    Atheros Wifi on N5110

    I have followed the following article: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...nspiron-n5110/ Everything worked perfect except WIFI. Atheros Wifi is installed but it does not detect any of the wireless connection. I have many of the wireless access point working in the surrounding and working fine on windows. I have tried following: Replacing different DSDT.aml from google- no use. Adding anther hardware USB wifi card - no use Any help would be appreciated.
