on the T420 - we have sandy bridge and the id that you listed looks like a frame buffer id. we use id=1 for MBP8,1 and we don't really need specify a frame buffer id explicitly. a

 

yup i have seen these mappings - i am trying to hack my new T460 and am using that list or something like it - these may come in handy on Sierra for the T420 which seems which may need some new mappings.

I'm actually in the middle of mapping the keyboard the same way as above. Pretty successful with the exception of Fn+F4 as it expects an immediate sleep trigger, so repeated press of the combo does not call the ec query.

Hey Guys,

 

Quick question...  Do you guys have working hibernate and shutdown?

 

I'm on an x220 and the guide I used borrowed a few things from the T420 installation guide here...   I'm just curious if you guys have the same issues I have (and if not, how the heck do I get it to work on my x220)...  Basically I want to enable hibernate to put less strain on the battery and my shutdown usually reboots ~50% of the time.

 

Thanks!

For shutdown try checking HaltEnabler in config.plist, for hibernate I do not know since I do not use sleep that often

for me shutdown and reboot all work as expected on the T420. i have it in a dock and no problem there.

i have seen that if you don't have USB ports working properly that can lead to odd shutdown/reboot issues.

 

hibernate is working with OxsAptioFix2 only and then setting hibernate mode to 7 - which if i remember from Tetonne, is no longer setable by the pmset command - so you have to set it in the plist manually.

I got OS X working with coreboot with an Ivy Bridge CPU it's still a WIP though:

  • USB needs fixing as only 2 ports work
  • battery remaining time seems to be inaccurate (not sure though)
  • the laptop wakes from sleep instantly last time I checked because of the USB.
  • incomplete power management
  • full backlight brightness at every boot

Any help would be appreciated ;)

About Hibernation : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/299721-sleep-hibernation-how-it-works-and-how-to-use/

 

For OS X El Capitan, you'll need modify the com.apple.PowerManagement.plist.

Type this in Finder > Go > Go to folder/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.PowerManagement.plist

 

And find the Hibernate Mode in both section and put the value that you want.

Use Rehabman's EHC1 to EH01, EHC2 to EH02 + USBInjectAll.kext for USB recognition, the uDP/Renesas USB 3.0 can only be used as a USB 2.0 with PXHCD.kext. Use Lenovo X220 (?) patch for battery. Use Rehabman's USB_PRW_0x0D patch for sleep problem ( remove XHC power management patch as yours isn't Intel ). Power management is due to AICPM and your generated SSDT, do not use -xcpm with M or QM CPU. Full backlight at boot can be something related to NVRAM not saving properly

  1. I'll try to get USB working following your tips
  2. The battery patch won't work - this is a completely new ACPI implementation of the entire system. (check out the coreboot github: src/mainboard/lenovo/t420 and src/ec/lenovo/h8)
  3. So should I generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen and remove -xcpm?
  4. The NVRAM is emulated - unfortunately, the only way I could get an EFI implementation right now is through DuetPkg which is basically a floppy image that contains an UEFI implementation through BIOS (SeaBIOS in my case - it resides as a RAMDISK in my BIOS)

Thanks for the tips, I'll try make some progress and I'll try to post my files as soon as I think it's stable enough (or someone asks me to upload it)

 

EDIT: This is a T420, not a T430/T430s and I only have USB2.0 ports - no ExpressCard USB3.0 solutions either.

Thanks to all of you for this great work!

 

@tluck could you please add the code from mikaelr (See #2354 and #2399) to the current dsdt.dsl / dsdt.aml or at least provide an additional one like you did for the config.plist for the screen resolutions?

It would be great to have a more silent Laptop through that. I know that RehabMans modded acpipoller.kext or hwmonitor has to be used in this case.

 

Thanks in advance!

For shutdown try checking HaltEnabler in config.plist, for hibernate I do not know since I do not use sleep that often

 

I tried enabling HaltEnabler but it had no affect.  System still rebooted on shutdown (this time i was on battery power)

 

for me shutdown and reboot all work as expected on the T420. i have it in a dock and no problem there.

i have seen that if you don't have USB ports working properly that can lead to odd shutdown/reboot issues.

 

hibernate is working with OxsAptioFix2 only and then setting hibernate mode to 7 - which if i remember from Tetonne, is no longer setable by the pmset command - so you have to set it in the plist manually.

 

I wonder if my custom USB injectAll kext is causing issues.  I've disabled the everything that's not sed and also disabled the USB that goes to the BTDC.  

 

I also enabled hibernate mode 7 via manual plist editing.  Still can't get it to hibernate.  

 

Also updated Clover to the latest version.

Thanks,  I've tried it and still not working.  I will try again (hard to test since I have to wait 4200 seconds).    One thing is that I don't see the hibernate option in clover.  Does that only pop up after a hibernation or is it always visible during any boot?

 

Thanks!!!

^ about Hibernate mode : this doesn't work for me neither :(

the 1st link was ok with 29 in the past. i had screen 1 and screen 2. but for none reason it doesn't work anymore even with the 2nd part (com.apple.PowerManagement.plist)

that should be a priority of clover's team lol

Great.. It did just that. Only needed to adjust the info.plist to match the t420 and use TCPU as poll method. 

 

                        <key>IONameMatch</key>

                        <string>MON0000</string>  <!-- Was FAN00000 -->

                        <key>IOProviderClass</key>

                        <string>IOACPIPlatformDevice</string>

                        <key>Methods</key>

                        <array>

                                <string>TCPU</string> <!-- Was FCPU -->

                        </array>

Loaded the kext and it is now making sure the fan controller logic is polled even if hwmonitor is stopped.

 

 

Guys, I really would like to achieve 2000 RPM fan speed at 55 C CPU temperature with this method and without relying on HWMonitor. However I don't understand how this could be done based on the above instructions. Can someone point me to the right direction maybe?

 

Thanks.

 

UPDATE: My bad, the instructions are in comment #2264892

 

"Quick howto replace the default fancontol logic on a T420 with a patched dsdt.

 
note: it’s assumed that you know what is going on. It’s important to have ether HWmonitor or the APCIPoller running.
It will poll the TCPU method in acpi and adjust the fan speed accordingly. If nothing is polling the TCPU (cpu temperature)
fan will just keep the current speed and not adjust speed according to cpu temperature. (Could cause overheating.)
ACPIPoller is just the default from Rehabman’s github but with a plist corrected to match a T420.
The rest is a default install using truck’s guide above corrected with a new TCPU function in the dsdt.
 
for details see here: 
 
 
* Mount the ESP volume. (Replace disk0s1 with your ESP volume.)
mkdir /Volumes/ESP && sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/ESP
 
* Backup old aml.
cp /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/dsdt.aml /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/dsdt.aml.orig
 
* Copy the asl from the zip.
cp ~/Downloads/T420_fancontrol/dsdt.aml /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/dsdt.aml 
 
* Copy the kext that poll the new fan control logic in ‘TCPU’ by requesting the CPY temp at intervals.
cp -r ~/Downloads/T420_fancontrol/ACPIPoller.kext /Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext 

kextutil /Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext"

 

Actually I got errors when tried to overwrite the ACPIPoller.kext with the one in the attachment even though I was using sudo.

The errors were like this:

 

Tamass-MacBook-Pro:~ somez$ sudo kextutil /Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext

Diagnostics for /Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext:

Code Signing Failure: not code signed

kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext "/Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext"

kext signature failure override allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext "/Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext"

 

Currently my fan is running at 2000 RPM but HWMonitor is also running so I'm not sure whether it's still needed or it's not a problem if I quit HWMonitor.

those errors are ok.  check that the kext is running by

 

kextstat | grep -i acpi

 

otherwise i might use this procedure to install the kext.

 

sudo cp -r ~/Downloads/T420_fancontrol/ACPIPoller.kext /Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext

sudo chown -R 0:0 /Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext

sudo chmod -R go-w /Library/Extensions/ACPIPoller.kext

sudo kextcache -i /

Hey tluck!

 

Actually yesterday I was able to confirm it's working by running Prime95 with HWMonitor running and without it. In both cases the fan kicked in after 11 seconds and jumped up until 55000 RPM. When the load ended my fan speed went down to 3500 RPM and stayed the for about 5 more minutes then decreased to the desired 1900-2000 RPM level. The thinkvantage button still works so this is like a dream now :)

 

Do you think you could incorporate this solution to lower the fan speed into your guide?

Thanks.

 

UPDATE #1

It seems closing the lid and thus sending the machine to sleep is causing weird behaviour when the machine is woken up.

For the first 3 times right after waking up the fan kicked in immediately at 5500 RPM then started to slow down to 2000.

Now after the 5th try the fan speed was not read by the system. It was literally displaying a "-". Thinkvantage button did not have any effect however the fan was working as the temperature did not climb up. Then suddenly it was showing 16k RPM while based on it' noise it was still running at 2000 instead.

Update the Zip bundle in the Guide.

 

 

16-Aug-2016 Update

  • Updated to Clover r3705 (should be Sierra ready)
  • Revised the ThinkPad Theme - new banner etc
  • Updated FakeSMC kexts (and included installer for HWMonitor.app)
  • Updated VoodooPS2Controller kext to latest rev - with a few TrackPad and KeyBoard param tweaks -- changed F1-F12 mappings to be like apple keyboard post-954945-0-58742400-1471373265_thumb.png - As usual - special thanks go to RehabMan.
  • Changed the Bluetooth kext to be an injector style kext instead of full (dummy) kext - no longer version specific
  • ​Other kext updates - no new features
  • Added DSDT for "heat-step" - An optional DSDT that needs (RehabMan's) ACPIPoller.kext or HWMonitor to monitor ACPI to change fan speed as function of Temperature.

 

I installed macOS Sierra PB 5 - still works ok -- seems like a more solid beta that El Cap...

anyway, it will need work and time to figure out the key mappings etc - i.e. to get audio buttons etc working.

 

Note:

my T460 experiment is a partial failure - partial success!

everything works -with one big BUT --  cant get full 3D graphics. May post interim results and will seek more help!

Trying to install El Capitan and hit a little snag.

 

On Part 2 - Post OS Installation and Setup, Step 5, It says to run this command to "Install cutom kexts on HD"

 

~/Downloads/T420/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/_kext-install.command

 

Thing is, I don't see the _kext-install.command in that folder (from the T420_UEFI-Clover-b3705_10.10_10.11_2016-08-16.zip). The only thing I see is _post-install-network-reset.command file and the "Other" folder that has the following kext files:

 

ACPIBatteryManager.kext

AppleHDA_20672.kext

BlueTooth_Injector_T420.kext

FakeSMC.kext

IntelBacklight.kext

IntelMausiEthernet.kext

IOAHCIBlockStorageinjector.kext

VoodooPS2Controller.kext

 

Where can i get that file to finish up the install?

 

Thanks for the help!

Hi tluck

 The new version VoodooPS2.kext have one problem.

Using the version, audio volume key + & - cannot working.

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.
      Immagine 
      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.

      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched

      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       
       
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack…..

      Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host
      Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. 
       
      The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh.
       
      There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there….
       
      I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg
       
      @colt2 HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware
      @dsmccombs comment on faking Ivybridge Processor
      @E:V:A http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=55572430&postcount=6
      @Tech Reviews video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7X07U63lwg.
      VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX
       
      Requirements
         Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X)    4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X)    Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine    Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34    Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75    16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC  
      Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack
      1.  On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder.
      2.  Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes.  Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete.
       
       
       
      3.  Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script:
      cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4.  At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later.
       
       
      Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox
      1.  Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM.
       

       
      2.  Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version.  I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next...
       

       
      3.  Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next.
       

       
      4.  Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button.
       

       
      5.  For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare.  Click next...
       

       
      6.  For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space).
       

       
      7.  On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger.  When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI.
       

       
      8.  Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings....
         a.  On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?)
       

       
         b.  On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2
       

       
         c.  On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB
       

       
         d.  On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". 
       

       
      Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier...
       

       
         e.  Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings.
       
       
      Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac
      1.  From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 
       

       
      2.  Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter>  after each line.  Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick...
       
      Eg iMac11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F2238BAE" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 MacBookPro11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "MacBookPro11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-2BD1B31983FE1663" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 Macmini6,2
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "Macmini6,2" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F65AE981FFA204ED" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 3.  Optional- For some host systems eg those with Haswell and newer CPUs, you might have to spoof an older CPU to avoid VirtualBox errors.  You can try from one of the following if this happens:

      To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff or
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff 4.  Close the command prompt window.
       
       
      Installation of El Capitan
      We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine....
       



       
      Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer:
      1.  Select language, agree to legal terms
       

       
      2.  Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended.  I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan.
       

       
      3.  Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on.
      4.  After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete.  At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive.  The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive.
      5.  At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout.  You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish…
      6.  Create a User Account and select your Time Zone.  You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple….
      7.  Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop.
       

       
      8.  Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted.  Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). 
       
       
      Customization with VBoxManage
      1.  You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt:
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively.
       
      Update:  For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed...
       
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution)
      eg
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2.  Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen
      VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html.
       
      Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD
      The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite .  Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware.
       
      With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie
       
      To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5...
       

       
      Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above).  Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free .
       

       
      UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51.
      UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365:  For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73.
      UPDATE macOS Mojave Beta:  For macOS Mojave Beta, use CMJI.tool on page 4 of thread.
       
      Good luck and enjoy

      Une petite mise à jour du topic pour confirmer le bon fonctionnement du patch à la volé de Clover (r3561) avec macOS Sierra.
       

       
       
       
      -----------------------------
      Mise à jour 24/08/2015

      ok, très bien,
       
      comme pour la HD6770, la nouvelle méthode du patch à la volé est de nouveau fonctionnel et avec les dernières versions de Clover.
       
      pour ma part, je suis sur El Capitan DB7 et Clover r3259
       

       
       
      par contre, je suis toujours obligé de m’aider de l’astuce avec FakeSMC pour que mes kexts soient toujours chargés, mais au moins cela marche.   
       
       
       
       
      et pour config.plist, cela donne ça :
       

       
       
      ceci est juste un exemple avec ma HD4830, il va de soi que vous devez mettre Device-ID de votre carte graphique !!!
       
       
       
       
       
      Salut à tou(te)s
       
      Comme certain(e)s le savent, les cartes graphiques dites "Exotiques" ne sont pas supportés par le système d'exploitation d'Apple.
      En sus d'ajouter l'identifient de la carte graphique (Device ID) dans l'Info.plist du ou des kexts concernés, il faut aussi interagir sur la partie "binaire" du kext par le biais du "patching".
       
      Dans notre cas, les cartes graphiques exotiques sont les cartes AMD (anciennement ATI) de la série HD 48xx, et plus précisément les HD 4830, HD4850, HD4870x2 et HD4890.*
       
      Donc le but est de faire fonctionner ces cartes graphiques de manière stable et fluide en activant QE_CI, chose nécessaire pour en profiter pleinement du système d'exploitation.
       
      * Juste avant de commencer, vous l'avez peut-être remarqué, la HD4870 n'est pas sur la liste suscitée et pour cause c'est que cette carte graphique est nativement supportée par le système d'exploitation d'Apple. Son Device ID est 0x94401002 que vous pouvez trouvé dans l'Info.plist des kexts concernés et c'est celui-ci que nous allons utiliser afin de le remplacer par le Device ID de notre carte graphique.
       
      ** Ce tuto est fait pour fonctionner sous OS X Mavericks, mais il doit fonctionner aussi avec les autres. La seule chose différente c'est l'adresse binaire à patcher.    
       
       
      Très bien, comme le titre le suggère, nous allons voir comment faire reconnaître ces cartes graphiques sous Clover et obtenir par la même un QE_CI activé et parfaitement fonctionnelle.
       
      Je vais utiliser ma Sapphire HD4830 512 MB GDDR3 PCI-E (comme cobaye    ) pour ce test et qui a pour Device ID 0x944c1002.
       
      Pour que ce test réussisse, nous allons donc utiliser ces 2 kexts, à savoir AMD4800Controller.kext (pour la partie QE) et ATIRadeonX2000.kext (pour la partie CI) et allons ajouter notre Device ID dans l'Info.plist. via le tweak "KernelAndKextPatches"
       
      Donc les valeurs à entrer dans notre config.plist sont celle-ci :
      <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>     <array>         <dict>             <key>Name</key>             <string>AMD4800Controller</string>             <key>InfoPlistPatch</key>             <string>Yes</string>             <key>Find</key>             <string>0x94401002</string>             <key>Replace</key>             <string>0x944C1002</string>         </dict>         <dict>             <key>Name</key>             <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string>             <key>InfoPlistPatch</key>             <string>Yes</string>             <key>Find</key>             <string>0x94401002</string>             <key>Replace</key>             <string>0x944C1002</string>         </dict>     </array> Comme vous pouvez le voir, la clé "InfoPlistPatch" sert à injecter notre Device ID "uniquement" dans Info.plist, sans y toucher à la partie "binaire" de nos kexts. La clé "Find" a pour fonction de trouver le Device ID que l'on veut remplacer par le notre en utilisant la clé "Replace".
       
      Très bien, maintenant comme nous l'avons dit au début de ce tutoriel, ajouter notre Device ID n'est pas suffisant pour faire fonctionner pleinement notre carte graphique, il faut encore interagir sur la partie "binaire" de nos kexts. Dans notre cas, il va falloir agir uniquement sur un kext, çàd sur ATIRadeonX2000.kext et plus particulièrement sur ATIRadeonX2000.kext/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX2000
       
      Et pour cela, nous allons faire comme ceci :
      <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict>     <key>Name</key>     <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string>     <key>Find</key>     <data>0F8394010000</data>     <key>Replace</key>     <data>909090909090</data> </dict> </array> Là nous pouvons voir que la clé "InfoPlistPatch" n'est pas utilisée et donc ces valeurs n'auront aucun effet sur l'Info.plist mais agiront uniquement au niveau de la partie "binaire". 
       
      Et voici les valeurs en leur forme complète que vous devrez ajouter dans votre config.plist
      <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>     <array>         <dict>             <key>Name</key>             <string>AMD4800Controller</string>             <key>InfoPlistPatch</key>             <string>Yes</string>             <key>Find</key>             <string>0x94401002</string>             <key>Replace</key>             <string>0x944C1002</string>         </dict>         <dict>             <key>Name</key>             <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string>             <key>InfoPlistPatch</key>             <string>Yes</string>             <key>Find</key>             <string>0x94401002</string>             <key>Replace</key>             <string>0x944C1002</string>         </dict>         <dict>             <key>Name</key>             <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string>             <key>Find</key>             <data>0F8394010000</data>             <key>Replace</key>             <data>909090909090</data>        </dict>     </array> Très bien, maintenant il ne nous reste plus qu'à autoriser l'injection des kexts, sans quoi le patch ne fonctionnera pas. Et nous allons le faire via le tweak "InjectKexts" comme ceci :
      <key>SystemParameters</key> --> clé principale <dict>       <key>InjectSystemID</key>       <true/>       <key>InjectKexts</key> --> sous clé       <string>Yes</string> </dict>  
       
      Si certain(e)s d'entre vous préfèrent utiliser le logiciel "Clover Configurator" pour plus de facilité, voici comment entrer ces valeurs :
       
      Allez sur l'onglet "Kernel And Kext Patches" et faites comme ceci :
       
       
       
      *Ne faites pas attention sur le majuscule/minuscule, cela ne fait aucune différence
       
       
      Et pour injecter les kexts, aller sur l'onglet "System Parameters" et mettez l'option Inject Kexts sur Yes comme ceci :
       

       
       
      Voilà, vous n'avez plus qu'à enregistrer les ajustements, redémarrer votre pc et apprécier le résultat.
       
       
      MAIS ... seulement voilà ... il y a un problème ... 
       
      Quoi ? 
       
      Initialement, les kexts ne sont pas présents dans le kernelcache à cause de "OSBundleRequired=Safe Boot" (ils ne sont pas chargés en local par défaut mais en mode sans échec) et donc le patchage "à la volé" (on the fly) ne fonctionnera pas.
       
      Donc quoi, tout ça pour rien ?
       
      Non, bien-sûr, voici l'astuce pour remédier à cela :
       
      Dans un premier temps, il vous faut booter l'OS sans kernelcache. Si vous utiliser Clover Configurator, il vous suffit juste de cocher l'option "No Caches" dans l'onglet "System and Parameters" ou bien vous le faites directement dans votre config.plist :
      <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict>       <key>InjectSystemID</key>       <true/>       <key>InjectKexts</key>       <string>Yes</string>       <key>NoCaches</key>       <true/> </dict> Ceci aura donc pour effet de bloquer kernelcache et obliger boot.efi de charger le kernel et les kexts séparément. Clover et FSInject vont ensuite intercepter tous les chargements des kexts par boot.efi et changer "OSBundleRequired=Safe Boot" en "OSBundleRequired=Root" à la volé (on the fly) et forceront boot .efi à charger les kexts. Et ensuite dans un second temps, Clover va patcher l'Info.plist de ces deux kexts et la partie binaire de ATIRadeonX2000, kernel va les charger et ils seront rattachés à votre carte graphique.
       
      Une fois ceci fait (donc les kexts utilisés), il vous suffit de faire sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions. Ceci créera un nouveau kernelcache qui cette fois-ci contiendra vos kexts utilisés. Ensuite il ne vous reste plus qu'à redémarrer normalement (en décochant l'option No Caches dans Clover Configurator) et le patch fonctionnera à merveille.
       
       
      Oui, mais ... là aussi ...
       
      Quoi encore ?
       
      Seulement voilà, pour une raison ou une autre, il peut arriver que kernelcache se reconstruit tout seul et le patch "à la volé" ne fonctionne plus.
       
      Alors je fais quoi moi en attendant ?
       
      L'astuce la plus efficace pour le moment est d'injecter les infos de vos kexts à l'intérieur de l'Info.plist de FakeSMC.kext comme des IOKitPersonalities additionnels.
       
      ????Kézako????
       
      Ces infos vous les trouverez dans l'Info.plist de ces 2 kexts, sous IOKitPersonalities. Les voici :

      Et voici donc l'Info.plist de FakeSMC.kext dans son intégrité, vous pouvez jeter un oeil, histoire de voir à quoi cela ressemble :
       
      FakeSMC_Info.plist.zip
       
      Et pour les moins casse-têtes, voici FakeSMC.kext modifié que j'utilise pour charger les 2 kexts :
       
      FakeSMC.kext.zip
       
       
      Voilà, avec ceci, vous n'aurez plus besoin de savoir si oui ou non les kexts sont dans le kernelcache.

      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.
