if i roll back to AppleACPIPlatform.kext from 10.8.4 (v1.7) the speaker works fine after sleep. 

 

not sure what node you  are looking for in your kext.

 

i think the speaker output node is 0x1f (31)

headphone node is 0x19 (25)

@pokenguyen - misunderstood your model is a T420S and not plain T420. here is a zip of the original dsdt and current dsdt.dsl (with comments) - you can diff them to see what was add/changed. 

 

attachicon.gift420_dsdt.zip

 

@okcakep

 

1) the sound loss from laptop speaker is known to be result of changes in 10.8.5 v1.8 AppleACPIPlatform.kext. laptop will lose speaker after wake from sleep. if you rollback to 10.8.4 v1.7 AppleACPIPlatform.kext this will not happen. 

 

@tluck --> sound now working after unplug my battery, im still using v1.8 AppleACPIPlatform.kext, i dont know way ? :)

 

2) EDID and glitches. is your native EDID different than the one Tetonne provided. is it v1.3? look for 0103 string vs 0104 string. i am injecting a different EDID (v1.3 seems work) than what was native/built-in to fix the glitches. 

 

in reality i never figured out why one EDID worked and another didn't. here were 2 v1.3 EDIDs for LCD 1600x900 - one was native (from windows) - i suspect it is the diff in detail clocking timings info? works is 96 Mhz and the glitchy one is 110 Mhz

 

works:

Hi all,

 

i use this for X220 and 10.9 GM

 

I've got the same issue with no sound after sleep

 

If i reboot to osx or windows still no speaker.

 

I need to shutdown the computer to make it work.

 

i dont know if it's a codec issue (EAPD) or an appleacpiplatform issue

ovof - thanks for adding your observation. seems to me appleacpiplatform since the v1.7 does not do this? but it is very weird that even that even windows can't revive the audio without a power down in between. i tested on my box and got no sound with win7.

After sleep still no sound...

 

How to fix imessages ? i get msg : Your Apple ID "xxx@gmail.com" cant be used to set up IMessages at this time

 

If this is a new Apple ID you do not need to create another one. To use this Apple ID with iMessage, contact iMessage support with the code below :

10.8.5 updates 3 kexts we care about: AppleHDA, AppleACPIPlatform and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.

 

Last one is easy as Clover automatically patches it.

AppleHDA patched for 10.8.5 is in the latest zip, so you can replace the unmodified one.  

AppleACPIPlatform v1.8 (or 10.9.0 GM) seems to be problematic as it seems to nuke the speaker after sleep.  you can either live with it (a power off/on will reset it) or rollback to v1.7 from 10.8.4.

 

iMessage - there are lots of recipes to fix it... one key thing is to make sure ethernet is using en0 (first interface) - common problem since we have to add the ethernet driver and sometimes wifi or bluetooth picks it up.

 

@ovof - FYI, i found that rollback to AppleACPIPlatform v1.7 from 10.8.0-10.8.4 works too.

AppleHDA patched for 10.8.5 is in the latest zip, so you can replace the unmodified one.  

AppleACPIPlatform v1.8 (or 10.9.0 GM) seems to be problematic as it seems to nuke the speaker after sleep.  you can either live with it (a power off/on will reset it) or rollback to v1.7 from 10.8.4.

 

iMessage - there are lots of recipes to fix it... one key thing is to make sure ethernet is using en0 (first interface) - common problem since we have to add the ethernet driver and sometimes wifi or bluetooth picks it up.

 

@ovof - FYI, i found that rollback to AppleACPIPlatform v1.7 from 10.8.0-10.8.4 works too. 

 

Are there any key tips I should follow to do an upgrade from 10.8.5 to 10.9? Now that it is released and I use this actually as a work machine with 2 monitors I would love to get the enhanced multi-moniter support

 

Also: T420, i5, lower res screen, sound just never ever works :=)

 

Thanks!

Hi!

Sorry for newbe question, but i try create first hackintosh in my life.

I have laptop Lenovo T430.

I download package for T420 from this manual: Clover UEFI on T420 Guide

Can i use this clover for install Mac OS as second OS (after licens Windows 8)?

Maybe i must change something? Kexts, DSDT?

Please help me.

10.9 release.

Speaker still dead after sleep using current acpiplatform

 

@fungflex. The update will replace custom kexts in SLE. So the kext bundle in my zip will be needed to reinstall . There is a patched 10.9 applehda kext that when using the dsdt in the zip will give you sound. The layout id is set to 12 in the dsdt

 

@werewolfgsm. Yes u can. I dual boot. Not sure which of the t420 kexts apply. There are some 430 users on this thread and maybe they can supply a dsdt and info. Clover dsdt autopatch will make it work mostly But custom dsdt is generally better.

Thanks so much for the great help in this thread. I've got a fairly stable 10.8.5 build running now and my key plan for upgrading was:

  • Download release from App store on my other mac (already did this step)
  • Create bootable USB via new version of Lion Disk Maker (did this step too)
  • Install latest version of clover to the USB drive
  • Replace EFI folder on USB drive with one downloaded from your ZIP

 

At that stage, do I boot from the USB drive and select upgrade or do I need to wipe and do a fresh install. I've also never tried before, does the hackintosh community support usage of a time machine so I could back up my current environment and restore if I need to do a clean install from the flash drive.

 

Post install of 10.9 I just install the latest build of Clover? Also what is the best method to quickly install custom kexts post install?

 

Thanks!

 

 

 

Also has anyone else encountered a strange bug on their machine where the clock slowly over time becomes inaccurate? For example mine was showing 1:51 at 2:00 and if I open the preferences for time it connects and fixes itself.

 

Strange bug I just noticed.

Well the actual clover package installation is good for stuff outside of the ESP. You can pretty much replace the EFI/Clover folder with the zip.yes time machine works. I updated my 10.8 install vs fresh

 

I used to have time issues with an old version of clover that did not compute the bus speed right. But now it does

It is better to do a clone of your 10 8.5 installation then doing a timemachine backup. Use CarbonCopyCloner for this task. If you have also Chameleon installed, you have to install it once again to your clone. The best bet for this task would be using an other hd for the clone.

 

Have fun.

Download release from App store on my other mac (already did this step) >> your sound will be death after upgrade from appstore. Restore your AppleHDA.kexts

No glitch in LCD

Replace /System/Library/Display/

 

Get your EDID using this

And I get EDID from Kogen Mantis from this post

 

My vendor id 0x30e4

convert to decimal > 16544

 

My product id 0x40A0

convert to decimal > 12516

 

And...configuration will be :

Ok guys, I am at an odd stand still that I didn't experience at all when I put 10.7 or 10.8 on here....

 

I've been using LionDiskMaker and now Disk Maker X since they just pushed a brand new version tonight it seems. Even tried MyHack and I simply cannot get my Mavericks USB stick to be considered bootable. At the UEFI boot menu it doesn't show up at all.

 

If I try to do the installer from the 10.8.5 it tries to verify and fails saying contact AppleCare.

 

So for tonight, I remain on lowly Mountain Lion.

 

Thanks so much for that display tip above, once I'm in 10.9 I'll go through those steps too

reread my instructions in this post #486  - it covers making USB, install and Post install. 

 

partition your USB stick GUID (use option) with 1 partition called USB

then run:

sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app —nointeraction

 

EDID and glitches - the zip i posted has 2 configurations:

1) High Res 1600x900 - clover injects EDID inject that is glitch free - it is also in the DSDT

2) Low Res 1366x768 - need EDID that works for Low-res

 

the post 486 has a link that has DisplayOverride file to match the device ID 2e2 for High-Res - 

 

graphicsPM -  the DSDT now used IGPU instead of VID - so it looks up MacbookPro8,1 and sees IGPU - i don't have my system with me now so i can't test changing the control effects brightness. but the latest bundle edits the SNBFramebuffer kext to increase the LCD brightness. your profile looks like the one for HD Graphics (gen. 1) perhaps thats ok.

Hey all,

 

I've been following this thread since I got my T530 at the beginning of September. Seems almost nobody has these / not much info on installing. I have it up and running with Mavericks right now via [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] method, but would much rather use proper UEFI and clover to do this, with a dsdt file. If I provide all pertinent information / dsdt / acpi dumps can someone help me patch a dsdt and get one going? i've tried before but can't get one to work. 

 

Just let me know what I need to provide and then we can try to get a solution. I'll be the first T530 guy and then we can have the dsdt etc posted for everyone to see / use

Sorry, this is a dense question but I am suffering from too many TLAs (three letter acronyms)

 

Can I ask one of the wonderful ninjas here to help explain what these are?

 

ESP

SLE

AGPM

 

Status Update: I'm running Mavericks like a champ now and just trying to fix up my display issue now

@FungFlex - sorry!

 

ESP - EFI System Partition - its the first (hidden/protected) partition on a GUID Partition Table formatted disk containing EFI files. where you put the Clover zip!

GUID - Globally Unique Identifiers

EFI - Extensible Firmware Interface

UEFI - Unified EFI

SLE - /S/L/E - /System/Library/Extensions

AGPM - AppleGraphicsPowerManagement

 

@humm3r - since you have it running using chameleon or chimera - a beast method right? then you are more than half way there! 

you can convert your MBR formatted disk to boot with Clover. Clover supports MBR/boot style as well as EFI/boot.efi style start up.

 

for EFI style then (which is what most of us are doing here) then you partition your disk with GPT/GUID and the OSX installers are happy.

Clover can auto-patch the built in DSDT to make it about 90% working for laptops. I don't know what audio the 530 may require a custom dsdt.

ages ago it seems, manwe150 posted a guide on what he did to patch the dsdt for the T420. the T420 DSDT has evolved a bit from there - mostly with tweaks for Audio/Video.

 

one thing you can do is use clover patching and then extract the patched DSDT (clover can do this too!) to then build upon that. i booted with a bunch of DSDT patch flags with virgin OS. i don't have my system with me now so i can't remember the so called DSDT mask or which ones to avoid etc.  you can test this pretty easily but using a USB to boot up clover.

HI, I did my USB using the method at the first post at this topic and it runs very smooth when using Intel HD3000;

The first time I installed 10.8.3 in my Lenovo T420s, I used myHack method, I have a disk image of this installation.

I had some issues after updating to 10.8.5 and had to wipe out everything and reinstall. But the reinstallation came up without sound and USB 3.0; Then I restored my previous backup (from myHack method). Worked fine. Even iMessage and Face Time, with no issues!!

Yesterday, I downloaded 10.9 and installed as update, directly from Launchpad.

The boot became faster (12 sec)!! But then, follow the list:

1. Sound is working, but just after start playing something, the sound became sizzle

2. All applications that uses Apple ID is not working, can't log in;

 

I'm afraid to update the kexts with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url].

Try removing all your account settings completely and then adding it back. Also deleting your credit card on file and re-adding it could help. That worked for me back on 10.8

Ok I seem to be stuck so I wanted to see if what I am doing is even correct to be honest. When I look at Finder I have two main hard drive volumes for my system EFI and Mac. I’ve been updating the files and dropped everything into the folders on EFI from the zip tluck provided.


 


This has everything working perfectly besides the display which is still showing up as quadrants.


 


When I attempt to install Clover again on the desktop it fails, and previously what made my display show up correct on 10.8.5 was simply selecting UEFI and then my Mac install during the boot process, that made everything boot properly. Now when I select UEFI it doesn’t seem to work, it just essentially refreshes the window so I can select UEFI endlessly or I can select my Mavericks install.


 


It seems like something is wrong with my Clover install but I can’t figure out what or how to fix it.


 


I went through all the steps on post #486 and it didn’t seem to resolve my issue, I even went and edited the .plist and turned dual link off as that was mentioned earlier in this thread. I’m trying to fix it now via my macbook air using splashtop so I can edit things without having to squint :-)

      Hi Hypervisors,
       
      I have been working to move my Late 2009 Xserve MacOS Server onto Ubuntu 18.04 LTS QEMU/KVM based virtual machine using OVMF and Clover.
       
      After much effort and testing based on the following information from: Kraxel's, Kholia, Gordon Turner and Clover site:
      https://www.kraxel.org/blog/2017/09/running-macos-as-guest-in-kvm/
      https://github.com/kholia/OSX-KVM
      https://gist.github.com/gordonturner/2a2e5ecde5e7860b52e2
      https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home
       
      I have now managed to get OVMF/Clover boot and install of MacOS Sierra.
       
      I started with Ubuntu 16.04 initially but this required download and compile of QEMU to get update of machines to: pc-q35-2.9 or better, so I moved to Ubuntu 18.04, which has pc-q35.2.11 available as standard.
       
      So I am now working with standard Ubuntu 18.04 LTS based systems with following packages: kvm/qemu/libvirt/bridge-utils/ovmf/virt-manager
       
      As I want to use PCIe Passthrough for a number of PCIe card currently installed in the server (SmallTree 10GbE & Areca ARC-1883 SAS RAID) I set up my machine with linux kernel boot configuration (/etc/default/grub) of: 
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="iommu=1 intel_iommu=on" (as my machine is intel VT-d based HW virtualisation)
       
      This resulted in creation of a number of iommu groups (see /sys/kernel/iommu_group directory for this and this posting for information: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/ubuntu-17-04-vfio-pcie-passthrough-kernel-update-4-14-rc1/119639 , noting that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS has kernel version: 4.15.0-22-generic so there is no need to do kernel update for iommu to work).
       
      Using bare minimal Clover config.plist:
       
       
      And following Clover UEFI drivers:
       
      I can boot MacOS, but it is very very slow... it sits on the apple boot logo for over a minutes before finally moving onto the progress bar.
      The other problem I have is that no PCI or Network devices appear in the "About This Mac" System Information Report and I cannot get any network connectivity from bridged E1000 network device.
       
      Here is my virtlib.xml dump for the virtual machine:
       

      Can any one advise of whether I need to update the CLOVER config.plist to add extra items in to allow network and PCI Passthrough to work.
       
      Thank you.
       
      Regards,

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Release v2018.05.17 on GitHub Updated to Clover r4458 Updated Lilu.kext - supports both Sierra and High Sierra Updated AppleALC.kext - supports both Sierra and High Sierra + added back DVMT patch for 10.13.2+ Updated VoodooPS2Controller.kext (RehabMan version) + SSDT updates for T460 Added Frank's T470p DSDT files
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.

      Hi there, time for my first guide after asking so many things
       
      Updated for newer Clover versions and with additional instructions for more apps: gdisk and RU.
       
      So what may be overlooked sometimes in the whole boot loader discussion is the ability of UEFI to do more than just loading an OS. This is why I see ".efi" files as "apps" because in fact they just are, built on a special kind of API: UEFI. So, you can actually do stuff like editing, diagnosing, testing certain stuff at the lowest possible system level without booting to any OS.
       
      DISCLAIMER: Use this guide at your own risk! For educational purposes only! Should do not any harm, but remember you are dealing with rather low level stuff. But at least for me everything went flawless.
       
      Prerequisites:
      Working clover installation Clover Configurator or some app to edit the config.plist  
      1) Memtest
       
      This is how to install the UEFI version of Memtest with Clover:
      Download memtest, I used this link: Image for creating boot-able USB Drive Open the archive by double clicking on it. Mount the file memtest86-usb.img within by double clicking again. Now, you should see a folder named EFI in this volume, containing a folder BOOT. Open it. The files containing it are the actual app, in 32 and 64 bit versions. Think in almost all cases we want to use the 64 bit version. Now, mount your EFI partition, using Clover configurator. Create a folder named MemTest86 in the EFI folder on your main drive. Copy all files in the EFI/BOOT folder from the mounted image to your newly created folder. That ends the basic setup! Now, we add the correct Menu entry to the clover boot menu, so that we can actually start this app.
       
      Get into clover configurator, open your standard config.plist from your boot drive and go to the GUI section. Under "Custom Entries", add an entry like this:
       

       
      Please note while the path you enter is not case sensitive, you must make sure you use the backslash "\" for entering paths, and not a slash. So basically what we do is tell clover where it can find the app, give it a name, and tell clover it is a "Windows" app. Note: with older Clover versions we had to set this to "Linux", but for now "Windows" is the setting that works.
       
      If you prefer to do a manual config, add this entry to your config.plist, under GUI/Custom/Entries:
      <dict> <key>CustomLogo</key> <true/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>MemTest86</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Ignore</key> <false/> <key>Image</key> <string>\EFI\CLOVER\themes\Icons\os_mint.png</string> <key>Path</key> <string>\EFI\MemTest86\BOOTX64.efi</string> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> Now, save and reboot and you should see the newly created entry. Note that I also used a custom Icon - this is optional - in case you don't you will just see a generic windows icon instead:
       

       
      And this is how it looks like:
       

       

       
      PS: also noticeably faster and you get also more features with this version than with the older version, for example it does now write a log file. For more Information, see: http://www.passmark.com/forum/showthread.php?4315-Memtest86-Version-5-Beta-%28Pure-UEFI%29
       
       
      2) gdisk
       
      Another app you can use is the UEFI version of gdisk (aka GPT fdisk), which you can use to edit and change your partitions.
       
      Warning! Install and use this app at your own risk! If you do something wrong here you might nuke your drive(s), so only use that if you know what you are doing.
       
      This is how to do it (even easier):
      Download here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gptfdisk/files/gptfdisk/1.0.1/gdisk-binaries/gdisk-efi-1.0.1.zip/download Mount your EFI partition Unzip the file and copy the resulting folder to your EFI Folder, so your path goes like this "/Volumes/EFI/EFI/gdisk-efi" Get into clover configurator, open your standard config.plist from your boot drive and go to the GUI section. Add an entry like this:  
      If you prefer to do a manual config, add this entry to your config.plist, under GUI/Custom/Entries:
      <dict> <key>CustomLogo</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>GDisk</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Ignore</key> <false/> <key>Image</key> <string></string> <key>Path</key> <string>\EFI\gdisk-efi\gdisk_x64.efi</string> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> When everything went OK you should see this after selecting the respective entry in Clover:
       

       
       
      3) RU
       
      I recently found one more app that might be interesting to some, and thats "Read Universal" or in short "RU". This is a tool that enables you to debug your BIOS and read (and modify!) every imaginable data, including UEFI variables, ACPI Tables etc.
       
      Warning, again! I think blindly messing around with this app is even more dangerous, but on the other hand it gives you access to a lot of potentially interesting stuff.
      Download here: http://ruexe.blogspot.de/ The next steps are basically the same as above so make a folder in your EFI partition, copy the .EFI files and make another custom entry in your config.plist Here are some screens:
       

       

       

       
       
      So this is what you also can do with UEFI and clover. I am curious which other useful applications might exist!
       
      Anybody who knows, maybe post it here?

      MB: Asus X99 A-II
      RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V F4-3200C16D-32GVK (3200MHz, 4x 16GB DIMMs, so Total 64GB) in quad-channel configuration.
      CPU: i7 6800k @4.0Ghz
      GPUs: GTX 1080 Ti and GTX 1060 3GB
      (each one a monitor, because I can't get DVI to run parallel with DP on the 1080Ti, and my second monitor only has DVI/VGA)
      OS: High Sierra 10.13.2 (17C88) / Clover revision: 4392
       
      Hello everybody,
      I occasionally have system crashes and suspect that it is related to RAM. However, this RAM is completely new, and a run with MemTest86+ from the USB stick showed no errors. However, if I use Memtest on MacOS, I get a bunch of error messages, but sometimes none (I restart the computer between tests).  
      As I just discovered, my RAM is not on the recommended vendor list of my motherboard, nor is it on the manufacturer side of the RAM. I have read several times that the RAM may not have been tested by the manufacturer on this platform. Not a single X99 motherboard is listed for this RAM.
      So I also suspect that my RAM is not compatible.
      But if that were the case, how could it sometimes work completely error-free?
       
      During RAM tests in summer 2017 (a slightly different setup, 4x8GB but still G.Skill Ripjaws V) I had no errors at Memtest under MacOS, if I remember correctly. At that time it ran under Sierra 10.12.6. AptioMemoryFix.efi could also cause problems.
      I am appreciative for any help!
       
      Here is an excerpt from a faulty test.
      It is noticeable that it is always the same address during the test, but a different one after each test.
