Automator task to cleanly shutdown a headless OSX?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all here,

 

The life of a hackintosher might be hard, especially when working on monitor and EDID issues.

When your jewel boots, but becomes headless due to monitor issues, the current way is to long press the power button. This stops abruptly OSX not seldom leaving the file system in an inconsitent state.

 

Would one of the experts here be so kind to write something like an automator task that would shutdown OSX gently stopping all apps by default even without a monitor on a given keyboard combination?

 

I think this would be a huge improvement for all of us, who get suddenly blind due to a monitor issue and save hundreds of hours booting in another instance in order to fix the file system.

 

1000 thanks in advance.

Hmm, the numbers answers are not overwhelming...

;-)

 

 

I have got another solution working for me:

a) release screen sharing.

B) use another Mac or TightVNC on another PC to access the screen.

so i could at least get in touch with my OSX and shut it down cleanly.

    •   Boot option name retrieval 1) Locate the booter image as explained blow. 2) Locate ".contentDetails" in the parent folder 2.1) if unsuccessful, locate ".disk_label.contentDetails" in the parent folder 2.2) if unsuccessful, retrieve the volume's name   HFS Boot 1) Retrieve blessed file via https://github.com/CupertinoNet/EfiPkg/blob/development/Include/Guid/AppleBless.h#L41 1.1) if unsuccessful, retrieve blessed folder via https://github.com/CupertinoNet/EfiPkg/blob/development/Include/Guid/AppleBless.h#L45, append "\\boot.efi". NOTE: This is broken in the latest binary I checked. 1.2) if unsuccessful, use the following hard-coded paths: "\System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi", "\EFI\APPLE\{ARCH}\BOOT.EFI", <StandardEfiPath>, "\\boot.efi" in this order 2) FV2 Recovery does not follow the usual practice because it is not shown by BootPicker anyway. Determine it via https://github.com/CupertinoNet/EfiPkg/blob/development/Include/Guid/AppleBless.h#L49, verify it does not match 1).   APFS Boot 1) Determine the APFS Volume Info (and hencefor detect whether it is APFS in the first place) via https://github.com/CupertinoNet/EfiPkg/blob/development/Include/Guid/AppleApfsInfo.h#L54 1.1) Determine the APFS Container Info via https://github.com/CupertinoNet/EfiPkg/blob/development/Include/Guid/AppleApfsInfo.h#L36 1.2) Verify the Volume Role via https://github.com/CupertinoNet/EfiPkg/blob/development/Include/Guid/AppleApfsInfo.h#L51 1.3) Retrieve blessed file analoguous to HFS 1). NOTE: This step and 1.3.1) are broken in the binary I checked, hencefor it does not happen, but is probably supposed to. 1.3.1) if unsuccessful, retrieve blessed folder and append the booter name the same way as in HFS 1.2) 1.4) (if unsuccessful,) locate all Volumes that are part of the same container, check whether the current Preboot partition has folders named by the just located Volumes' GUIDs and append the hard-coded paths from HFS 1.2) if existant 2) Recovery detection works the same way as 1.4), just for a Recovery instead of a Preboot volume

    • For F6 Bios, which DSDT is the one i should use? I´m a little confused in the Mass of DSDT here ;-).   Great Thread by the Way.   Another Question: I have 2 960Pro inside my Rig (one with OS X, one with Windows 10). When i try to mount my EFI on OS X NVMe the system freezes... :-(   DWhen i unplug the Windows NVMe everything is fine an it mounts the EFI.   Anybody an idea?   Tried the upper Port on the Board (OS X) & the middle / lower Port, in the Middle it mounts the EFI in the lower it freezes.   But i need the middle Port for an SATA M.2 SSD :-D... Even when i plug the Windows NVMe into an PCIe Adapter Card it freezes at the point i mount the EFI.   I´m mounting with Clover Configurator.     Thank You guys.
    •   Just add "ngfxsubmit=0" to config.plist to disable the fix within nvidiafixup
    • @MegaCookie   ok, I have no solution for that Trial 7 good for the release?
      Is this codec good enough for you?
