okay, i have already installed c48 beta. but i forget to keep the original AppleHDA driver, i back home now but the network is so slow, mind send me a copy of c48 version AppleHDA ?

 

Currently i am using c38's AppleHDA from Extension you sent to me cause idiot deleting action. :D

Sure, here you go. I've tossed in the latest CC revision from git that works best for me right now (requires single PIO and jack sense works too).

 

I'm experimenting with defining custom output numbers though config, but even though it appear to end up with the same path, behavior changes to the way it was before .. when I had badly patched kext.. So I'm debating if I should settle at how it works right now or tinker some more and allow customization through plist.. its open source anyway, so anyone capable of changing 1 digit and pushing CMD+B would be able to change that.

 

But let us see how the current CC build works for you .. if it will also require just a single PIO for EAPD bit to stick .. then we are definitely settling on this hardcoded approach.

Thank you for coding it, after doing some tests, i use my own layout-28 & Platforms.aml.zlib files or your attachment, clover kextstopatch as before we did.

so, there are two results: 1, CC & HDA of attachment, LID sleep & normal sleep, lost sound after wakeup. 2, your HDA, my layout-28 & Platforms.aml.zlib (i did), CC is from github compiled last night, normal & LID sleep, sound works after wakeup. 

 

May i ask the sources code changes after last night ? also compare with configdata we have a few difference,

configdata from attachment:

You can see all the changes by looking at commits section at the top. All I did was fixed boolean toggles, removed platform profile config and made it read status of eapd at wake when not using multiple updates. Also commented out the timer timeout part.

 

Mind I ask you to test the enclosed build? The changes are not yet pushed to git, so you wouldn't be able to get same build if you compile yourself.

see, just tested, failed both normal/LID sleep. here is the debug log.

logs.rtf

 

EIDT:

it works well after recycle sleep, but why it doesn't work at the first time ? the latter debug log is the same.

I'm not sure, really .. it works here with all sort of sleep (Fn+Esc, LID and Apple-Sleep) ..  

For me it sticks even on the first PIO operation and remains working, sometimes it requires 2 PIOs. I've pushed the changed to git and added the option to check EAPD status bit infinitely.  This is the log with 'PIO' filter set:

Feb  3 12:32:12 CodecCommander: cc: finite workloop requested, will start upon wake and stop after 2 PIOs
Feb  3 12:35:48 CodecCommander:  w: PIO operation #1
Feb  3 12:57:01 CodecCommander:  w: PIO operation #1
Feb  3 13:13:23 CodecCommander:  w: PIO operation #1

I'm still on my laptop and all the 3 sleep cycles I did EAPD remains working after PIO #1. I keep on playing youtube and itunes silently ... It's now 3:34 PM, its been 2 hours since I last put the laptop to sleep and it still hasn't performed a second PIO operation. Even though I've stopped and started audio streams with 5 to 10 minute delays in between.

 

Gonna jump on Skype for further tests.

From the first post:

in UEFI boot mode pressing Fn+F2 to toggle radio interfaces causes the machine to lock up, in order to prevent this methods FOWM needs to be wiped clean (no action taken when method is called).

The DSDT patches should have disabled this, I'd think? Regardless, it wouldn't work anyway.

Not in windows. Just don't press it there.. In 8.1 you have toggles for both WiFi and Bluetooth in the charms bar...

 

when using windows , i can turn off my wireless by way switch windows to airplane mode. but some time i press wrong fn+f2 windows is hang @@.

hi tw, sound on my mac os not working , i have to using voodoohda and sound is working but hdmi audio not work @@. can you help me fix that,

I can't make a bios with a permanent DSDT modification to it to fix the Wi-Fi toggle hang just because there are people out there (the majority, in fact) who would use legacy installation of Windows on their laptops and as such it would cripple the functionality for them too, that otherwise would have worked  perfectly. 

I saw separate toggles for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with my own eyes when I had Windows 8.1 .. so Airplane mode is not the only option (go to PC Settings - Wireless)

If you are a minority with a problem please learn to deal with it and accept it as it is, otherwise reinstall Windows in legacy mode and live happily ever after.

 

In regards to sound issues. Use the AppleHDA with all the scattered patches (described in the original post) along with this kext I'm attaching, use Release version if you don't want any debug messages in the console.

badman0_8, i suggest you to go back and double read the guide. it is possible that you are missing one of the steps on the guide. like tw wrote there is minors problem that you have to live with it (I had to change the time on w8.1 everytime i switch from mac to it). if you don't have multimedia option  enable, i think that is almost impossible to press at the same time fn+f2 by mistake. with clover version that the guide was development HDMI audio out didn't work in my situation but after i upgraded clover. that issues fixed.

It's a guide thread, not a help desk. You were provided with more than detailed instructions about post-install. Either read them and do as it says or keep moaning about your problems. If you are always going to rely on people to fix {censored} for you, then perhaps hackintoshing a laptop is not your cup of tea, to say the least. No offence, but take your time and read a bunch of text, then make sure you followed what you read correctly and only when it doesn't work ask someone to help, providing as much detail as possible about the problem that you are facing.

@TW, for these kinds of requests , i agree with you, hacktintosh isn't easy for everyone, it needs an attitude about learning and testing, not just post a problem and get solution. 

 

BTW, i test Feb 6th CC, it acts 6 PIOs after LID sleep then works.

Try compiling from sources again, I've pushed an update. Works after semi-sleep now too. Or is this it already?

 

P.S.

Update to build C53, sources for AppleHDA were updated to final build it seems, with earlier versions build number was a12 and then a13, now it's f1

i just upgrade to beta c53, compile latest sources code, did a LID sleep take ten PIOs without sound output, then did a Fn+Esc sleep, take 2 PIOs sound work.

That version doesn't have the counter for infinite check I believe.

Try the enclosed files and see how it plays for ya..

CC-2.1.1-feb-6th+HDAC53.zip

 

P.S.

If you see that the codec starts acting weird just shut down the laptop and boot to OSX again. It's the same story as with the headphone jack not working after booting to OSX from Windows.

      Hi.
      I apologize in advance if I didn't post in the right category and if my title and description aren't specific enough :c
       
      My config in a nutshell:
      CPU: i7 5820k GPU: MSI GTX 1060 3GB RAM: 16 GB MOBO: MSI X99 SLI PLUS I attached RunMe output with all the details of my built.
       
      Some background:
      I have my Hackintosh for about half a year. That time I managed to make it works and fix major issues, but some of them left unresolved since then and I ignored them until now.
      I use my Hackintosh for Adobe projects (PR, AE, PS, IL, AU and a lot more) - most of them connected with video editing of course browsing with Chrome and other small tasks.
       
      Problems:
      Random restarts - this is the biggest one. I'm starting to work on bigger and bigger projects and at this time I think I can't allow this to happen that often. In the past, they happened like once a day or a couple of times a week. However, now it's just frustrating when it happens even 5 or more times a day. I've tried to observe and find out what can be the cause but I haven't managed to find any connections. I thought it happens when Premiere or another app is using GPU, but I haven't seen increased usage when it restarts. I think that it can be connected with GPU, memory or PSU or... meh, anything else. I don't have resources to check if it'll work with other components. There should be some fix for this. I will really appreciate any help with this :c Restart instead of shutdown & sleep doesn't work. I've tried to look through some Google results for this and tried many solutions (as you can see in attached Clover folder), but I think the right one for many of these issues is to make my own DSDT. Glitches, freezes and other things while encoding a video. It happens very often when I try to do this. Maybe it is an issue with GPU or (hopefully) only with GPU drivers which can be fixed with some patch. Today my headphones stopped working. I have a multi-output device configured in the Audio MIDI Setup app which includes my headphones (HyperX Cloud via USB) and Soundflowerbed virtual audio device for capturing system audio. Today while I was trying (like 15 times) to encode a video in Media Encoder in the background and watch video on YouTube I stopped hearing anything from my system. Of course, it restarted a couple of times as always, but even this didn't solve this. If I plug them directly with mini jack (not via USB Soundcard which was in the box and which I always used) in the front IO or the back I only hear some loud noise It takes EX-Fat formatted volumes a few minutes to mount after each restart. I found a workaround to format it with NTFS since I have Tuxera installed and I will reformat these volumes when I will find time for this, but maybe there is some fix for this. GPU is a little bit hot. HW Monitor shows it is only 45-55 degrees, but for my hand is a little bit hot, idk. Also related to GPU - glitch after POST but before entering Clover boot menu. It is a black screen with little white squared glitches for a few seconds. Maybe it indicates the GPU drivers are loading, but maybe it shouldn't be like this. And if I can ask about that - I can't make all applications hide on startup. I, obviously, have "Hide" checkbox checked on every login item in settings, but it doesn't work, none of the apps is hidden in the dock. Is there a way to fix this? Also a small but annoying problem - I can't turn off permanently Mojave update notification (since I tried to install it, and I had to reverse to High Sierra because I had a black screen and I didn't have time for repairing all of them. Tags are not working in Finder - every time I tag a file or folder and make a change in it (for example save a text file) the tag disappears.  
      So, with knowing all of that, is there a way to make a proper DSDT file for my Hackintosh? I tried to look through some guides on how to make it but I think I reached my abilities to understand how Mac OS works and what all of these things are, so I'm asking you guys politely, would someone like to help me? At least with these random restarts? :/
      I really begin to think that I'm a newbie in configuring all of that Clover things - even after what I managed to do with my PC. Help me, pleease... :c
       
      If you have any questions post it below, I will really appreciate any help <3

      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):

      Before updating to a new version of Mojave please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
      Mojave & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart
      list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4)
      sel vol 4
      list part(Select System type partition, for example 2)
      sel part 2
      assign letter=b(This will "mount" your EFI partition)
      Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI
      remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI)
      2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI)
      Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI
      mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)
      Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!
      Notes:
      2019.03.30: Fixed USB 3.0 ports, fixed Bluetooth crashes after sleep -> updated bootpack
      2019.03.28: Updated to 10.14.4. Unexpected crashes while updating to 10.14.4 -> fixed by updating Clover to the latest (v4910) version. Bluetooth crashes appeared -> fixed by downgraded Brcm*.kexts. Updated bootpack.
      2019.02.24: Bluetooth crashes after sleep -> fixed, updated bootpack. 
      2019.02.22: Updated to 10.14.3. Fixed HDMI Audio by installing "FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext" -> fixed freezing during boot. Fixed brightness levels by installing "AppleBacklightFixup.kext". Also updated bootpack & postinstall zip down in attachments.
      2019.01.21: Removed FakeSMC.kext, SMCHelper-64.efi, replaced by VirtualSMC.kext, VirtualSMC.efi because I got random freezes when booting system (kextd stall[0], (120s): 'AppleACPICPU' -> CPU is at 100%, fans are spinning fast), also updated bootpack in the attachments "acer_aspire_v591g-55tu_clover.zip"-> Freeze continued, brought back FakeSMC, deleted VirtualSMC (caused BT crashes).
      2019.01.18: HDMI Audio is fixed, I didn't do anything HDMI Audio is not fixed, sometimes it worked but most likely not. (no idea why)
      2018.12.09: Updated to 10.14.2 -> did without any complication
      2018.11.28: Fixed combo-jack garbage sound output by installing ALCPlugFix and CodecCommander.kext

      TLDR:
      I'm trying to boot MacOS on a Chromebook without UEFI. I'm stuck at getting the bootloader (Chameleon/Clover) to work.  
      My setup / context:
      I have an Acer Chromebook Spin 13.
      Available ports:
      2 x USB-C 1 x USB-A 3.0 MicroSD Slot No USB A 2.0 (I've read that Clover has problems with USB 3.0) Firmware:
      There's no UEFI firmware available and by default, it doesn't even allow booting anything other than ChromeOS. Thanks to MrChromebox (big shoutouts!), I flashed a custom legacy bios that allows me to boot anything linux related. This bios is flashed into the RW_LEGACY section of the existing bootloader (coreboot afaik) and doesn't have any configuration options. If I have to change a setting, I could try compiling his bios payload myself with the specific setting enabled.  
      What I've tried so far:
      Chameleon attempts:
      Only selected setting was "Install chameleon on the chosen path", rest was unselected.
       
      1 - Install chameleon first without restoring the basesystem:
      Output:
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: done
      (hangs; pressing power button once shuts down
      Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_BEFORE".
       
      2 - Install Chameleon after restoring the base system:
      Output:
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: doneboot1: /boot       <- Exactly like that, no line break in between
      (hangs; pressing power button once shuts down)
       
      I haven't been able to reproduce #2 after wiping the drive and doing the same thing again. Subsequent attempts have resulted in either #1 of either Chameleon or Clover.
      Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_AFTER".
       
      Clover attempts:
      I tried multiple settings and configurations, but all of them boiled down to either one of these.
       
      1 - Doesn't do anything, just hangs at "Booting from usb..."
      2 - Boots into the blue/grey mode as shown in the attached images.
      According to MrChromebox, this could be an old Tianocore DUET It doesn't detect anything (cpu frequency, ram, partitions or disks)  
      I've read pretty much every article, github readme and other types of documentation for coreboot, tianocore, clover, chameleon and MrChromebox' rw_legacy payloads and right now, I'm totally clueless as to what to try next...
       
      A few questions that came up:
      Why does chameleon hang? What is it looking for, /boot was clearly written to the disk by the Chameleon installer? What exactly is the blue/grey image? According to MrChromebox, it could be Tianocore DUET Where does it come from? Clover? The mainboard itself? Why does the blue/grey thing not detect my processor frequency or any partitions/drives? Can I use some sort of DUET bootloader to chainload Clover?  
      If you guys could answer any of them or if you have any other guesses or information as to what's happening, I'd be really happy!

      Short Version:
      I have two drives with the exact same EFI folder (and I can boot into Clover from either one), shouldn't I be able to boot into MacOS from either one?
       
      More Detail:
      I've done a few hacks so far and this never happened. (Gigabyte z370 / 8700k / Vega, Asus z390 / i5-9600k / 1080). Now, I'm setting up a ThinkPad X1 Gen 6. (Yes, I do expect problems on laptops, but that's not the question).
       
      Mojave 10.14.4 now boots from the internal SSD. So far, so good. Here's the problem.
       
      I installed Mojave on a USB drive (for backup / rescue) and copied the entire EFI partition of my boot drive to the EFI partition on the USB drive. So... I should be able to boot from the USB drive, right? Wrong. Ran Clover installer on the USB itself. Same outcome.
       
      With F12, I can boot from the USB into Clover and select the OS on the USB. The boot sequence hangs on End Random Seed, but before the usual '++++++++' line.
      So, boot into Clover on internal boot drive, then select OS on USB. Same thing.
       
      Read the forums, I saw the posts about AptioMemoryFix, so I tried the various other drivers on the USB. No go.
       
      I haven't found the solution yet to the USB boot issue, but what puzzles me is that if I have two drives with the exact same EFI folder (and I can boot into Clover from either one), shouldn't I be able to boot into MacOS from either one?

      Clover r4914 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4914 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4914-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
