ira,how to set dev boot flag to nvram ? i have it on my info.plist ...

 

By the way,i only have InstallESD.dmg and OSInstall.mpkg on contents/shared support...

Boot in single user mode and run

 

/sbin/fsck -fy

 

/sbin/mount -uw /

 

nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

 

cp -R /path/to/fakesmc/and/other/kexts/*.kext /System/Library/Extensions/

 

kextcache -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions

 

exit

 

At this time system may run a second cache build and will reboot. Then just boot from the partition.

 

:)

Here we go InsanelyMac Family!

Gz! btw. the OS itself looks so strange... :D

 

edit: it looks like the build on the wwdc was a newer build, because it had a new example file in the downloads stack on the dock. Also the menubar shadow is much smoother in that build.

Guys so here's the bullet proof simpliest guide i can write if you're using clover and already has it working with Mavericks.

I'm assuming you already know how to do a Base System based USB/HDD/Partition whatever installer:

 

1. Proceed with building the Installer as usual, but forget about mach_kernel, instead copy the BaseSystem.dmg and Basesystem.chunklist that are hidden in the OS X Install ESD dmg you already mounted to the root of your installer partition;

2. Create a folder called kexts in the root of the installer directory and put any needed kexts from your clover EFI partition or whatever they are;

3. Select those kexts and put them also in /System/Library/Extensions of the Installer;

4. Reboot to the installer in Single User Mode and run:

/sbin/fsck -fy
/sbin/mount -uw /
nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"
kextcache -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions
exit

5. At this point the system may continue to load and you'll reach the installer, if it reboots just boot in to it again.

6. Install the system as usual, but do not reboot yet.

7. Close the installer and open Disk Utility select the partition where you installed Yosemite and notate the disk identifier ex: diskXsX

8. Close Disk Utility and open Terminal then run the following:

mkdir /Volumes/TEMP
mount -t hfs /dev/diskXsX /Volumes/TEMP/
cp -R /kexts/* /Volumes/TEMP/System/Library/Extensions/

9. Close Terminal and reboot to the partition you've installed Yosemite in Single User Mode;

10. Run the following commands again:

/sbin/fsck -fy
/sbin/mount -uw /
nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"
kextcache -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions
exit

11. At this point the system may continue to load and you'll reach the system, if it reboots just boot in to it again.

 

Enjoy!

 

If someone found a simpler way please post, this is the way i get it working.

 

Really Thanks for your time and effort,+ira ... :)

I've followed your guide +ira and I'm just instantly rebooting, right after clover's verbose screen loads and is about to start the OS x verbose screen.

 

Haswell i7 4700mq (locked msr's were an issue with similar symptoms when attempting mavericks, needed a patched mach_kernel at that time for a fix)

 

Any ideas?

Getting a "root device is mounted read-only" :/. At the first command...

 

Sorry, i'm not sure why you're seeing this, are your installer formatted as hfs extended journaled? Take a look at this page for clarification of what these commands do http://www.westwind.com/reference/os-x/commandline/single-user.html

If you need a patched kernel to run Mavericks you will likely need one as well to run Yosemite, the method described in my post makes use of kernelcache...

I suppose I'll have to wait for a patch and a way to use it, or for a future clover revision to build in a kernel patch for yosemite then. I'll keep an eye on future posts, and keep trying to figure out a way around.

There's a typo on the syntax of the command it is /(no space here)sbin/fsck(here it has a space)-fy

You're not stuck the system is waiting for you to enter the next command if any...
