Ozmosis

This seems like something that should wait for official ozmosis release to me. Ive followed all the hacking you've done so far with the quo firmware and I'm glad you've helped people on how to extract what they need to use this but it doesn't seem right to take it to this level. It would seem wise to wait for official open source to know exactly what is involved with the ozmosis boot loader.

I'm going to give this a go on Asus P8H77-M LE

I also use OS X without EmuVariable so it should work.

I'll post results and built binaries

Here you go...

An Ozmosis firmware for P8H77-M LE.

I tested it and it works.

 

You can flash it using FTK under Windows or the new DPCIManager (which uses flashrom) under OS X.

 

Alternatively you can download it here:

PMPatch is applied on the BIOS.

It also has mods for Asus SLIC and custom LAN MAC address (de:ad:ba:be:c0:de)

 

Enjoy :D

Has anyone tried it with Asus boards? I have two (see sig) and am curious about this. I can open the rom and cap files in MMTOOL and seem to be able to add/remove modules OK. Just haven't tried going the whole way and rolling a bios to flash.

 

Also, I'm not sure if either of these boards store NVRAM variables correctly (I use Chameleon on both).

I have, and Asus uses AMI Aptio UEFI BIOS so it should work. :D

Anyone missing the GUI of Clover, can now use rEFInd with OZmosis

And the settings can be done by pressing the home button during boot.

Tested this, it works...

Does anyone know which fakeSMC was packaged in the original Ozmosis H3A release?

 

For some reason I am seeing 1.0.0.d1 and that may cause issues down the road.

 

If you are running a vanilla install on H3A with no bootloaders, could you let me know which version you have running? You can do so by: 

kextstat | grep -v com.apple

No worries.

 

I assumed that with the files you discussed above, you might have been in the loop or involved in the ozmosis project. Im still catching up with being off the forums for four or five years.

 

Apart from this and the quo board thread, is there another forum or thread that you are aware of that discusses ozmosis or provides source?

 

I have a few other UEFI boards around. I might give your guide a try as well.

I set about injecting modules in to my Z68 BIOS but then realised that in order to have this a fully functioning "hack" BIOS (AppleHDA excluded) I'd also have to replace the DSDT.

 

This got me wondering if the usual DSDT hacks (like device renames and HDEF/HDMI/SBUS injection) would have any adverse effects on a Windows dual-boot.

 

I'm leaning towards staying with Chameleon as it's more flexible in these situations, but it's still really cool to think that it's possible to have everything rolled into the BIOS.

Kudos to Xpamamadeus for your initial and continued work with Ozmosis and to the other guys who appear to have contributed a great deal and I am referring to Stlvnub and AnV, and others too numerous to mention.

 

A great way to go and I might have a go one day on my Asus Z88.

 

Great work guys - it is amazing what can be achieved, when you set your mind to it.

This is amazing.  Just finished installing it to my P9X79 PRO.

 

One questions--how do I pass boot args to the OS?  Edit the com.apple.boot.plist?  Somewhere else?  My motherboard needs npci=0x2000 to boot up, so I get the Apple loading screen, but then it just fades and restarts.
