It seems just warning not error, since *.pkg built contains 3 themes above.

I'm just curious it just happens recently, I meant "the logs" didn't appear with prev commits. Thanks.

not sure why but is not surprising it is complain with a path like:

 

../themespkg//christmas

 

see additional red path separator ..can't work. I'll take a look as just now I've finished testing the new Clover.app, some clean up and will be online..

Not my business and totally oft, but if I may, I would advise you to stay away from nasm 2.15 (RC)  as at the moment is still very Unstable and not really suggested for stable releases

Please share your result.  I also have RX580 and I noticed that OC no longer support Clover.  Currently, I use WEG and Liliu for RX580 to work with iMac13.2.  Not sure if latest OS will be compatible for RX580 and if WEG no longer working.  I felt OC is more advance for me, whereas, Clover is more friendly user. just my opinion. 

 

All these "misleading " write up for RX580 compatibility (OOB) but it turn out, u still need 3rd party kext to work.

Third-party kechtas are not required for rx580. You need the correct combinations of the model and the board ID. For example, Mac Pro 6.1 still starts rx5xx out of the box, without using WEG.
For RX580 to work with iMac13.2, AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy patch, which is implemented in WhateverGreen.kext 1.3.4, either this patch:
 

<key>KextsToPatch</key>

<array>

<dict>

Good advice, then I've rolled nasm back to 2.14.02 (Stable). Thanks anyway.

Hi, 

 

A friend is trying to install macOS with Clover, from a USB stick made by createinstallmedia, and 2 minutes before the end of first phase of install, he is getting the error:

"An error occurred validating the installer data. The download is either damaged or incomplete. Redownload the installer and try again."

He tried with both Mojave and Catalina USB installers (created with createinstallmedia from his Macbook), and he also tried with two different USB sticks, and the same error persists in all cases. 

 

Anyone saw this error before and has an idea what it could be?

Mmmm, it's an interesting idea, but the error displayed is different than the one in that article, and he downloaded them yesterday, so it can't be the case of an expired cert.

I had similar error resolved by boot with legacy Clover. Wow! It works! I didn't understand what is happen. May be some variable in NVRAM is a culprit.

Another time I installed Mojave and got a message "The installer is broken and can't be used". The solution is set data to half year ago. That's fine!

I'm not really sure if adding `--downloadassets` with createinstallmedia (10.14++) will make any difference related to those "error validation", but give it a try.

Thank you for your reply, Slice.

After excluding about every other possibility I could think off, I also started to think about NVRAM. I specifically suspect maybe something in the Boot* variables, which the installer probably tries to get/set at that stage, and maybe something fails there from some reason. If no other solution works we will probably try Legacy as you say.

 

By the way, did you try a reset Nvram from Clover when you had that problem?

Doubt it. As the same USB stick works when installed in a virtual machine. So it's not a problem with it.

No, I got the result and cancel experiments.

There are variables like InstallPhase1, I don't remember exactly. The problem appeared on my computer #1 which has good working NVRAM.

I have another thought that GraphicsOutputProtocols are different in UEFI and in legacy mode. And the difference influences on GraphicsConsole which may be a problem for the installer.

anyone who has system problem that repeatly wakeup and sleep every hours or 2hours after sleep.

i already use rc script mDNSResponder. but actually it doesn't work in catalina.

 

my setting

enable AppleRTC Patch

enable ACPI RTC Patch

 

is there script problem?

# Check that all variable are bound
set -u

#
# Source clover rc library if needed
#
if [[ ! "$(type -t GetNVRamKey)" == "function" ]]; then
    selfDir=$(cd $(dirname "$0") && pwd -P)
    source "${selfDir}"/../rc.clover.lib
fi

# Variables
mDNSResponderPList=/System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist
pListBuddy=/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy
disableOption='-DisableSleepProxyClient'

# Debug mode ?
[[ "$DEBUG" -ne 0 ]] && set -x

[[ ! -f "$mDNSResponderPList" ]] && exit 0

# Check if sleep proxy is not already disabled
already_disabled=$($pListBuddy -c 'Print ProgramArguments:' \
 "$mDNSResponderPList" | grep -c -- "$disableOption")

if [[ $already_disabled -eq 0 ]]; then
    echo "Disabling mDNS responder sleep proxy"
    $pListBuddy -c "Add ProgramArguments: string $disableOption" \
     "$mDNSResponderPList"
else
    echo "mDNS responder sleep proxy already disabled"
fi
 

my system has sleep sick

Just to recap your statement on RX580 w/out the need of WEG but by adding KextsToPatch script it should work.   Is Liliu still needed? 

 

I forgot to do a screenshot, what odd was when I view in DPCIManager under PCI List, the device name listed as Radeon 470 instead of rx580 but in the Mac About, it show rx580

Of course that he can't with rc scripts. It will work if you use this:

daemon.png.c8bb2c4d4e38cdf4559cb62d0140c4b3.png

using the new app.

 

 

thanks alot.

there is something issue like legacy system for reset nvram.

except case about hibernation(hibernationfixup), nvram file is save in ESP partition.

but your app makes nvram file in root of macos partition.

if we clean nvram in Clover GUI, we can't erase nvram.plist in root of macos partition.

is there solution for clean nvram.plist?

 

EDIT.

also i erased rc script all for test. my system use OsxAptioFix2Drv + EmuVariableUefi.efi.

i checked daemon log. here is

That looks like a bug in Clover. If you clear the nvram in Clover GUI then it should not read the nvram.plist, or start a new empty nvram, so that the next shut down the new plist will be empty or with new values. Otherwise guys who still install on MBR insteag of GPT can't never clear it?

This is the old daemon, should no longer log at second shut down, let me know.

      Dear all,
       
      I have a external harddisk about 500GB, I installed the clover into it and the harddisk is GPT format, below is the 3 partitions details:
      FS01: EFI - disk0s1 - fat32
      FS02: install mac  image - disk0s2 -  hfs+
      FS03: install windows 10 - disk0s3 - fat32
       
      I can use this external harddisk to install Mac without issue, I use below steps to install windows 10
      enter the FS03:
      cd to efi/boot/ and excuete bootx64.efi
      after pop up the windows install screen, i click next and it shows error 'A media driver your computer needs is missing...' and the installation can not go any further.
      Firstly I use ultraiso to write the windows 10 image to a flash disk and no issue to start install window 10 so the image is working fine. Since I dont know how to write
      a wiindow installation image into harddisk partition, I used winrar extra all the files into disk0s3, am I missing some steps or actually clover not support to install windows
      by partitions, apprecating any helps.

      Original and updated link:
      https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11355-acer-aspire-v-15-v5-591g-catalina-windows-10/
      (Note: mine is 55TU version, but the bootpack will work fine with another versions of 591G, for example: V5-591G-71K2, -764Z, -59PU, etc.)
      Specifications:
      - Motherboard: USOPP_SLS (Skylake-H PCH)

      Working:  
      - Wi-Fi (with BCM94352Z)
      - Bluetooth hand-off (With BCM94352Z)
      - Full Graphics enabled on HD 530: ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 (HD 530 Mobile)

      - Touchpad and Keyboard (ELAN501): Fn keys are good, the weird thing is the Brightness key. On my keyboard it's Pause Break:Br-up, Fn+F12:Br-dwn-> To fix this try Karabiner (VoodoPS2Controller.kext), - for gestures try SmartTouchpad drivers
      - Battery info: Install ACPIBatteryManager.kext with Kext Utility or other installer.
      - Sleep Mode
      - SSD with TRIM enabled (to enable trim, open Terminal and write "sudo trimforce enable")
      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      On Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw to modify System/Library. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!

      I just made a clean install of High Sierra on a 1TB crucial ssd. Installed clover Clover_v2.5k_r5070 into the EFI of this ssd, but when I tried to make it my default boot drive, the clover screen wouldn't come up, and left a black screen.
      I tried using the Olarilia usb drive and clover did the same thing.  The only way I can currently boot is to use my old drive with clover v2.4k_4945 then select  my new drive from the clover menu.   
       
      Do I need to install v2.4k on my new drive or is there a way I can get v2.5k working?
       
      I have a GA-x79-ud5 motherboard, AMD  rx580 graphics card and use a Sony 4k tv as my monitor.
