      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create Mac OS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the Mac OS installer apps, it is capable to create a Mac OS installer on a drive completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself.
       
      Allows you to create easily a macOS install media without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is you want to use it on a Mac.
       
      Features:
        - Simple to use UI that allows you to easily start the macOS install media creation process   - It can work with every Mac OS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside of it's resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers)   - You can use any drive or partition you want that can be erased and is at least 7 GB of size   - Works on Mac OS recovery, so you can create a macOS install media from a bootable macOS installer or from the macOs recovery   - All vanilla, the macOS install medias created with this tool are 100% vanilla, just like you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method   - Open source, you will know what this program does on your computer and also you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code   - Does not requires to do anything of special first, just open the program   - No need to go in disk utility first, TINU can format your drive for you   - Uses recent and more modern APIs and SDKs and Swift 3 language   - Transparent graphics style available (use alt + s on the keyboard or View->Use transparent style)   - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without needing for an update    Features that I'd like to add in the future:    - Advanced section, to customize your macOS install media   - Installer customization: Kernelcache/prelinkedknerel and boot files replacement (a feature that can be handy while dealing with old Macs or with beta installers when you need to mod or change the boot files some times)   - Install clover and configure clover   - Install kexts inside the kexts folder of clover   - Clover drivers customization   - Use custom dsdt in clover   - integrated pre-made clover config templates database from a remote and open repository   - Support for other languages, at least Italian   Rquirements:  - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer)  - A drive or a free partition of at least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer  - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive in your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media)   Note that this app is under the GNU GPL v3 license so any reuse of the source code must follow the license's terms   TINU 1.1 Stable release:    - Download available here:    https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases    - Source code:     https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU   TINU 2.0 pre-release:    - Source code:    https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/tree/development    - Download available here:    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/nvzss51qcieynve/TINU.zip     Frequently asked questions about TINU: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs     NOTE: if you have problems with your USB installer of 10.13.4 or newer version not being detected by clover you have to use the latest clover and if it still does not detectets your usb installer you have to remove the invivible file called .IAPhysicalMedia located into the root of the usb installer. This issue is caused by a changement in the apple's createinstallmedia, don't blame TINU for that, tinu does only uses the installer creation method from apple, which has been changed, causing this problem for hackintosh users, this issue should be resolved in the latest versions of clover which will no longer require that you do changements to let your usb dive to be detected, a setting to do this fix automatically in tinu is also comeing in a new pre-release of TINU 2 I leave also some screenshots as well

      Questo è il thread in italiano dedicato alla mia app TINU, l'app open source che ho creato per creare chiavetta di installazione di mac utilizzando il metodo "createinstallmedia".
      Il nome è l'acronimo di TINU Is Not U (Per le regole del forum devo censurare, ma la U si riferisce ad un programma che piu o meno svolge lo stesso scopo che che per buoni motivi è bandito su questo sito, il punto del metterlo nel nome sta nel sottolineare che la mia app è totalmente divera)
      L'app è pensata per essere molto semplice ed immediata da usare (con un interfaccia grafica progettata con criteri e metodi usati in ambito professionale per lo sviluppo di applicazioni utente) e per essere molto solida e stabile che funziona sempre al primo colpo (a differenza di altri tool che conosciamo ...)
      A livello funzionale quest'app non è altro che un interfaccia grafica per il metodo da terminale "createinstallmedia" che viene sfrutatto dalla stessa per creare la chiavetta, quindi le chiavette create con TINU sono chiavette al 100% vanilla come se le aveste create dal terminale, a questo l' applicazione aggiunge funzioni utili come la formattazione automatica della chiavetta USB che si sceglie di usare in formato Mac OS Extended (journaled) (detto anche HFS+) con mapatura di partizione GUID.
      Tra gli altri vantaggi troviamo il fatto che permette di creare chiavette utilizzando qualunque applicazione di mac che contiene l'eseguibile "createinstallmedia" inclusi installer delle beta ed installer appena rilasciati, e non richiede di fare cose particolari prima come formattare la chiavetta e cambiare lingua al sistema e puo utilizzare applicazioni di mac che si trovano in vaie directory nel sistema e non solo quelle sche stanno in applicazioni ed hanno un nome specifico (nota che l'applicazione di installazione di mac deve essere quella interacche pesa diversi gb e non quella da pochi mb che l'app store puo scaricare alcune volte e che contiene tutto quello che serve per permettere a createinstallmedia di funzionare)
      l'applicazione è completamente aprta ed open source e trovate qui alcuni link utili:
       - Scarica l'app: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases
       - Repo github di TINU: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU
       - FAQs (in inglese): https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs
       - Thread in inglese su tinu (English thread about TINU): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/326959-tinu-the-macos-install-media-creation-tool-mac-app/
      Qui invece ci sono un paio di guide (Anche se l'app è molto facile da usare):
       - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per un hackintosh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZOZOUt2ErM
       - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per creare cheiavette per Mac "originali": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZOZOUt2ErM
      Attualemente è in fase di sviluppo una nuova versione di questa app che verrà rilasciata a breve e che include diverse novità e migliorie importanti.
      Per chi se lo chiede, il supporto a clover in TINU è pianificato per una versione futura, anche se dei protipi a livvello codice per renderlo possibile, sono gia stati sperimentati con successo.
       
      Spero che anche voi del forum italiano aprezzerete questa app come gli utenti del forum inglese, per idee e suggerimenti, siete liberi di esprimervi :-)

      Hi

      I am try to install High Sierra, as per #####
      I have have successfully booted from the install usb drive and have booted into "Install macOS High Sierra". I had to add a boot flag (-no_compat_check) to the clover bootloader in order for the usb stick to boot properly. Also, at first I couldn't see the SSD drive in disk utility, but I fixed that by asking disk utility to show all drives.

      Onto the current problem. I am having major issues trying to install High Sierra to a NVMe SSD. When I run "Install macOS High "Sierra" I get the following error:

      "The version of macOS installed on this mac is newer than the version you are trying to install. When a new update is available, you can install it from the Updates plane in the Mac App Store. If you want to reinstall macOS, please use macOS recovery."

      Also, It doesn't matter if the startup volume is formatted as APFS or HFS+.

      If I format the drive using GPARTED on linux, the installer just says the startup volume doesn't have journaling enable. If I then run disk utility and enable journaling on the startup volume, then go back to the installer, I get the aforementioned error msg.

      I have the following specs:

      i9-7900.
      Asus Prime X299 Deluxe.
      ADATA 512GB NVMe SSD.

      How do I fix this issue?

      My App Store will only download the High Sierra 13.2.01 installer and I have had some issues with that version so I need High Sierra 13.1 but I can’t get it from the App Store anymore.
       
      I was able to get a 13.1.05 installer from somewhere and I now want to verify that it is genuine. The checksums for InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg match the 10.13.1 (17B48) ones as found at: https://github.com/notpeter/apple-installer-checksums
       
      But I want to make sure that tools like createinstallmedia are also genuine. So I am looking for the SHA1 (or md5) hashes of all files in the installer app bundle. There is a great open-source osx verification project at https://sektioneins.de/en/blog/16-01-08-osx_verify.html that does exactly what I want but unfortunately High Sierra versions have not been added. It basically is a json with the hashes for all files in the bundle.
       
      Is there anyone willing to provide me with all hashes of their Install macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.05 app bundle?
       
      The tool from the link is a python script that iterates all files in the bundle, calculates the hashes, and writes it to a json file. It can be used like so:
       
      git clone https://github.com/sektioneins/osx_verify
      cd osx_verify
      ./osx_verify.py --scan <insert path to 13.1.05 installer app here> --store 'Install macOS High Sierra.13.1.05.app.json' --description 'Install macOS High Sierra.13.1.05.app'
       
      The json file will be created in the osx_verify/db folder.
       
      If someone can post their json file here, or if someone has another way of verifying all the files in the bundle I would be grateful.
