well i am not sure what broke?!

 

I dont see FakeSMC in newer boot logs??? this must not be installed right?

 

1) was it the new dsdt.aml ?

2) was it the new kexts?  maybe issue as DSMOS doesn't arrive?

3) was it new clover 2133 -> 2165 ?

 

may you can replace each item - 1 at time on working configuration?

Updated posted Clover b2184 for T420 at post #397

 

  • Clover
    • minor tweaks/refinements to config.plist (e.g. dont think darkwake is needed anymore)
    • has 2 OEM configs - 1 for high-res and 1 for low-res
    • Note: recommend use of ssdt.aml if it fits your cpu - seems to get a bit more out turbo mode (get 32x at times instead of 30x with just Clover Generate P/C states)
  • Revised DSDT
    • for Shutdown hang (thanks to TimeWalker75a)
    • for native ACPIPlatform kext - no need to rollback or patch AppleACPIPlatform.kext - can use unmodified v1.8 from 10.8.5 (see notes below)
  • Kexts
    • ​Updated AppleIntelE1000e.kext
    • Updated ACPIBatterManager v1.40 
    • Updated FakeSMC
      • includes modified ACPI/Plugin Info.plist to remove DISABLED features so FAN speed shows up in HWMonitor (with stock AppleACPIPlatform.kext) 

ACPI Notes:

 

You can remove any patched/rollback AppleACPIPlatform.kext now if you like... but you may want to keep it depending on your preference based on comments below. I am still looking into this issue of course.... not sure if the problem is with the new kext or a dsdt issue.

  • the new DSDT conforms (more) to the native unmodified kexts ACPI spec... so dont have to replace the AppleACPIPlatform.kext. 
  • native AppleACPIPlatform.kext v1.8 (10.8.5) works but seems to have some issues with Power button lights after wake.
  • native AppleACPIPlatform.kext v1.7 (10.8.4) works too - but does not wake as well when you have external eSATA/USB drives. But good news as the v1.7 does not seem to have power light issue.

If you choose not to upgrade to 10.8.5, this new DSDT and the kexts will work in 10.8.4 (or older.)

the last pack (T420-UEFI-Clover-b2184_10.8.5 ) works now :)

the guilty kext was AppleACPIPlatform.kext 10.8.5 so i use AppleACPIPlatform.kext 10.8.4

 

I deleted my previous posts to make the thread clearer

 

Thanks again for this great stuff

@Tetonne

glad you got it working - you are welcome - et merci pour testing et feedback.

 

yeah, i am bit suspicious of the 10.8.5 v1.8 AppleACPIPlatform.kext myself and may rollback to the previous rev 1.7.  

 

EDIT: even with the slow blinking light problem after wake-up, v1.8 AppleACPIPlatform seems to be more reliable for me. doesn't  hang up (yet?) like it 1.7 did from time to time - with the fast flashing light when going to sleep and never waking up! 

 

IMO, 10.8.5 with new 8-bit changes in the DSDT overall has made it work better than ever.

@All

 

Haven't been on in a while. Life, you know...

 

You guys have made outstanding progress in the few weeks I haven't checked in. In the coming days, I will try to catch up with you 420 guys. Gendalo hasn't been on in a while, so I think I'll be on my own for a little while. And I see Kogen hasn't been on in a while either. I was going to ask if he could add "/430" to the thread title or maybe a mod could do it. I want to attract more 430 users to this thread. I really don't want to break it out into its own thread because the hardware is so similar and you guys have provided (although inadvertently) all the info needed to get this working for us 430 guys.

 

Just want to reiterate my appreciation for all of your work. This is really the only solid, worthwhile 430 hack resource.

In the meantime before Mavericks is GA....

 

2 things addressed in the post  #397  for 10.8.5 and T420

 

  1. There was an patch for 10.8.5 (v 12F45) today. I downloaded with App Store and update no problem ... other than it replaced AppleHDA and Bluetooth stuff. So you will need to replace those items! (latest kexts are in the zip)
  2. I added some code in the DSDT to fix the LED issue I had upon wake up. That is where the LED keeps pulsing as if it was still asleep and the moon on the lid stayed on too. now it just resets them to power light steady on and moon off.  so now i am much happier with 10.8.5 ACPI. 

 

Update 4-Oct-2013

  • Revised DSDT
    • for Shutdown hang (thanks to TimeWalker75a)
    • for native ACPIPlatform kext - no need to rollback or patch AppleACPIPlatform.kext - can use unmodified v1.8 from 10.8.5 (see notes below).
    • made a change/fix to reset LEDs upon wakeup.
  • Updated Clover to b2165 b2184
  • Updated AppleIntelE1000e.kext
  • Updated FakeSMC
  • Updated VoodooPS2Controller
  • Added Patched AICPUPM kext for Chameleon compatibility.

Tluck-
I got problems when using the vanilla AppleACPIPlatform.kext.
I extracted the kext from the 10.8.5 update using Pacifist. How do you get it?
See attached screenshot of the errors. I had these errors also the other day when I tried to use the vanilla kext.

  
Any ideas?
 
Thanks,
AJ

@AJ -

 

 i got the v1.8 AppleACPIPlatoform.kext when i upgraded to 10.8.5. are you 10.8.4 or 10.8.5? The 10.8.0-10.8.4 version AppleACPIPlatoform.kext is 1.7

 

are you talking about SMC errors? i am not totally sure but what version of FakeSMC are you on?

 

are you using the new dsdt?

I'm on 10.8.5 and I got your latest FakeSMC and dsdt from today's pack...

The error comes when I use the new AppleACPIPlatoform.kext v1.8. I just had to put back v1.7 to be able to boot...

hmm. not sure what to say!? do you get these SMC errors when using the v1.7? are you using the patched version from the 10.8.4 clover bundle? or the standard 10.8.4 v1.7 ?

I don't get the SMC errors when using v1.7, it only happens with v1.8.

I believe I am using the patched version of v1.7, it was coming from your previous packs...

attached are 3 AppleACPIPlatform kexts - can you test the v1.7 unmod?

 

v1.7 unmod

v1.7 ermac patch

v1.8 unmod

 

these are the only non-apple kexts...

@Tetonne  - thanks for testing. i will put ErmaC's patched AppleACPIPlatform.kext in the 10.8.5 bundle as an option for those that need to rollback. It was/is in the 10.8.4 pack. I am not sure why i can run the vanilla kexts?  i tested the old DSDT before splitting into 8bit variables and i can run 1.7  and 1.8  - just dont get battery info. with the new dsdt i can run all 3 versions. The new v1.8 works best and seem to consistently supports esata - before it was hit or miss.  yesterday i bumped up to rehabmans FakeSMC.

I found a fix for very low input volume of the AppleHDA LineIn/ExtMic I have been always experiencing.

 

While spending quite a few hours trying to rename LineIn to ExtMic, I noticed that one of the configuration widgets in the patched version of AppleHDA had been put in the wrong section.

 

The attached file has the following patch. If you have a compatible version of AppleHDA, it should be as simple as dropping it into the appropriate location in the AppleHDA kext, reboot, and your LineIn Mic should be much louder. Otherwise, you may need to make the edits yourself to Platform.xml, and then compress it to Platform.xml.gzip using the `Script RevoGirl AppleHda.zip` from e.g. http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2676

Also nice, is enabling Ambient noise reduction. This is done simply by copying the SignalProcessing section from Mic to LineIn, in layout12.xml

 

Finally, and somewhat related, I wrote a script to parse CodecVerbs and pretty print the output for consumption in various places. For example, you can get your ConfigData section from

/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext/Contents/Info.plist and inspect it as follows:

Awesome. yeah i gave up too after trying for hours (days?) to get ExtMic in the config! i will incorporate into AppleHDA for 10.8.5. thanks! 

 

works great - i just dropped in. i completely forgot thats why i bought a USB headset since when i used my iPhone buds/mic the input volume was so low! just tested again it seems to be louder!

 

thanks.

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      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.

      Make things works

      Will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop.
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
                    If you have modded BIOS with Advanced Menu and enabled 128MB DRAM-prealloc use 128MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
                    If no, then use 32MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
      - Put SSDT-L440.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.3.2.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the FakeSMC.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0915.
      - Download the VoodooPS2Controller.kext from here. I used version 2018-1008.

      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week.
      In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you.
      I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.9.
      - Download the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0505.
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.2.
       
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the config.plist inside your destination disk EFI parittion with config.plist inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.
       
      Last step
       
      Copy all Kexts from flash drive to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.3
       
      - Updated with success;
      - Everything works perfectly after reboot;
       

       
       

       
      And last but not least
