Patches by BuildVersion:

 

Following Micky1979's idea about to be more strict/specific filtering patches by OS BuildVersion (MatchBuild) instead of OS ProductVersion (MatchOS). Since MatchBuild is an "unique" value, this will simply overwrites other unmatched BuildVersion even OS ProductVersion was matched. Applied to "KextsToPatch" & "KernelToPatch". From example below it will ignore other Sierra (10.12) BuildVersions (ex: 16A238m/16A239j) other than specified MatchBuild (16A254g):

 

 

 

<key>KextsToPatch</key>

  <dict>
    <key>Comment</key>

KernelToPatch:

 

With "KernelToPatch" will give Clover users the ability to patch current kernel with their own patterns onthefly. For example: to propose some "new" kernel patches after big OS update (like OS Sierra introduced yesterday) without needing to wait for Clover updates, and maybe alot of other purposes. ** This may lead Clover cannot find internal kernel patch patterns if they already replaced by your custom patterns, so use with caution (or disable from GUI if anything goes wrong). Config examples:

Rev 3679

 

Experimental: Size matter, screenshot as PNG instead of BMP. Inspired by mr. Coderush "CrScreenshotDxe". Maybe useful for other PNG encoding purposes. Activate by "-D LODEPNG".

 

Rev 3681

 

Hover icons, for both 1st & 2nd row:

 

Clover will search any icons with suffix "_hover.(ext)" & use it as hovered state.
Applied to: os_*, func_*, tool_* icons. Ex: func_about_hover.png, os_mac_hover.png, tool_shell_hover.png.

 

Fixed icon format:

 

One extension for all. Ex: If user has specified an ext (Icon->Format) like "png", then Clover will ignore any other extensions including default "icns". Valid values: icns, png, bmp (untested).

<key>Theme</key>
<dict>
  <key>Badges</key>
  <dict>
    <key>Inline</key>
    <false/>
    <key>OffsetX</key>
    <integer>0</integer>
    <key>OffsetY</key>
    <integer>0</integer>
    <key>Scale</key>
    <integer>16</integer>

    <false/>
  </dict>
  <key>Icon</key>
  <dict>
    <key>Format</key>
    <string>png</string>
  </dict>
</dict>

Example: based on blacktype theme by xenatt, vol icon taken from metal theme by Slice.

 

EDIT (Sat Feb 17 17:12:06 2018): Current hover icons being reverted, so it will no longer exists.

Rev 3698

Exclude ICNS and BMP graphics format.

All artist have to use only PNG graphics. In fact this is true now and I can reduce Clover size.

 

Embedded refit font is replaced now by PNG font "hellfire-9W". Is there other propositions?

Rev 3729 by Needy

new submenu for CSR

scroll for Help
radio button for TextOnly

 

Now you can set SIP bits in additional menu in CloverGUI

Rev 3733

It was my mistake setting nvda_drv=1 flag as boot-args. No! It is NVRAM variable nvda_drv that can have a value "1".

So I make new config value

	<key>SystemParameters</key>
	<dict>
		<key>NvidiaWeb</key>
		<true/>
	</dict>

This value will switch macOS to use Nvidia WEB drivers instead of system one.

There is also GUI switch

Screen Shot 2016-09-12 at 14.46.20.png

Please test and report.

 

PS. For system

For system 10.12 (and up?) there is NVRAM variable  "nvda_drv" taking a symbolic value '1'.

Rev 3744 -3748

New boot-args to choose in Details menu


CHAR16* ArgOptional[NUM_OPT] = {
  L"arch=i386",
  L"arch=x86_64",
  L"-v ",
  L"-s ",
  L"-x ",
  L"nv_disable=1",
  L"slide=0",
  L"darkwake=0",
  L"-xcpm",
  L"-gux_no_idle",
  L"-gux_nosleep",
  L"-gux_nomsi",
  L"-gux_defer_usb2",
  L"keepsyms=1",
  L"debug=0x100",
  L"kextlog=0xffff",
  L"-alcoff",
  L"-shikioff",
  L"nvda_drv=1"
};

Rev 3748

partially reverted commit 3733

 

We found that for systems up to ElCapitan 10.11.6 there was boot-args "nvda_drv=1" to switch on Nvidia WEB drivers. If absent then system drivers used.

But for Sierra there is NVRAM variable "nvda_drv" that take a value of string "1".

 

Since this revision you can check this point in Details menu and got both variable changed, for 10.x and for 10.12.

Rev 3787

Introduce SMCHelper efi driver.

 

It is not a replacement for FakeSMC.kext, it is a helper for it.

It works as follow

1. FakeSMC (my version 3.4, I don't know if Kozlek wants to add same functionality) catches all system events like "SMC key write" and store them into NVRAM. Hardware or emulated.

2. After reboot Clover >=3787 will read NVRAM (or nvram.plist) and gather all SMC keys into own stack.

example

1:882  0:000  === [ Dump SMC keys from NVRAM ] ==========================
1:882  0:000  found AppleSMC protocol
1:886  0:003     fakesmc-key-LsBA-ui8:90 
1:886  0:000     fakesmc-key-NTOK-ui8:01 
1:886  0:000     fakesmc-key-NATi-ui16:00 00 
1:886  0:000     fakesmc-key-NATJ-ui8:00 
1:886  0:000     fakesmc-key-CLKH-{clh:00 00 70 80 00 01 19 40 
1:886  0:000     fakesmc-key-LSSS-ui16:02 00 
1:888  0:001     fakesmc-key-CLKT-ui32:00 01 3D 87 
1:889  0:000     fakesmc-key-MSDW-ui8:00 

3. When we start a system boot.efi may ask for the SMC protocol and keys

->LocateProtocol(gAppleSMCProtocolGuid, 0, 0/CB592D78) = Success

4. Those keys can be used by boot.efi for Hibernation wake or for FileVault or else.

5. I am not sure if those keys should be reported again for FakeSMC. At this moment no.

 

 

Rev 3791

Fix zero pointer dereferencing.

The bug was introduced in commit 3590  :shock: , so we have 200 non-working revisions from 3590 up to 3790.

Details

+    SelectionImages[4]->HasAlpha = TRUE;

But this image exists only with BootCampStyle else there is NULL.

So mov 1, @18h where there is legacy interrupt table.

My legacy computer worked but didn't sleep. My UEFI computer seems not affected.

I see many messages about Clover not working, black screen etc. 

I think in most cases 3791 should work again.

Rev 3808

Added a new submenu into Clover GUI for suite related audio options.

- In this first commit can be handled boolean ResetHDA and AFGLowPowerState options

 

Rev 3847

Extends and update existing nVidia card list.

 

Rev 3848

- Extends recently created Audio tuning submenu with the ability to change the already provided

layout-id from config.plist

- The number of finded HDA Controller now are been showed with his Vendor and Device ID

- for both Audio and Graphics submenu a minus typo was correct using ternary logic

- GFX_MANUFACTERER has been renamed into HRDW_MANUFACTERER (the same manufacter struct is used for both Graphics and Audio)

Thx to Micky1979, Jolly and gengik84 for the test.

(more work is needed... the next step is move all the related HDA stuff from device_inject into a dedicated 'class', add harcoded name for the Controller and finally retrive the Codec values)

Rev 3895 - 3905

Strict Hibernate rule

If you set in your config plist

	<key>Boot</key>
	<dict>
		<key>StrictHibernate</key>
		<true/>
	</dict>

Then Hibernate will work other way. And this is only way to do hibernation on FileVault2 locked volume.

 

Strict Hibernation

 

Hardware

- UEFI BIOS

- hardware NVRAM

- GPT formatted HDD with EFI and Recovery partitions

 

Software

- Clover rev.3905+

- SMCHelper.efi

- OsxAptioFix2Drv.efi - there must be version 2, compatible with Hibernation

- FakeSMC.kext version 3.4.x only!

- sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 25

 

If you set StrictHibernate = TRUE while you didn't fulfil all conditions then Clover automatically switchs StrictHibernate to FALSE. So TRUE is safe settings, nothing happens in worst scenario.

If you have no Hardware NVRAM then after power on you will not see "Hibernated" and forced ordinary boot. In such cases you may look into boot.log (preboot.log, debug.log, bdmesg output) what is happen.

If you have a reboot during wake then most probably you have no correct FakeSMC.

Rev 3904

If you see in system log

AppleLPC::notifyPlatformASPM - registering with plugin with ASPM Support false

then you want to set in config.plist

	<key>ACPI</key>
	<dict>
		<key>DisableASPM</key>
		<true/>
	</dict>

The message will gone and macOS works smoother.

Why? This is FADT->Flags bit 4.

If set, indicates to OSPM that it must not enable OSPM ASPM control on this platform.

Yes, macOS can't control hackintosh hardware ASPM. (OSPM = OS Power Management)

Rev 3908

Added function

	<key>Boot</key>
	<dict>
		<key>NeverDoRecovery</key>
		<true/>

In the case when ordinary boot failed the boot.efi can set flag "recovery-boot-mode". It is not reliable for us and we want just ignore this variable to boot ordinary.

Rev 3913-3914

USB keyboard will be reconnected automatically for FileVault2. But this affects only new American Megatrend UEFI BIOS version 5.

 

Rev 3920

MatchBuild for several builds, by Micky1979

Kext or Kernel Patches can match several builds separated by comma now.

 

Rev 3928

HDMI injection is possible now. For example by Arbitrary Properties.


Rev 3929-3937

Change Clover repository folders structure.

 

Rev 3938

correct MMIO region for Polaris cards

There was a mistake in Polaris card injection. This patch has resolved one of problems with these cards.


Rev 3950

Added a line into preboot.log

The CPU supported SSE4.1

or

The CPU not supported SSE4.1

 for you to decide is it possible to install Sierra here.


Rev 3952

New patch_for_edk2 rev 23215+ preventing load efi drivers and applications.

With this patch we can use recent EDK2 at least 23447.

EDK2 decided to prevent load applications and drivers from external sources. All modules must be loaded from FirmwareVolume.

I am not agree with this policy and canceled this check.


Rev 3940...3953

Multiple updates platform data by Sherlocks. Now Clover knows much more models.

Rev 3979

Menu for custom kexts patches.

It looks like follow

Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 13.10.28.png

 

But you should take into account that the menu is called before OS choosen so it can't reflect MatchOS and MatchBuild.

The menu will reflect all patches defined in config.plist as if OS matched. You may enable or disable any of these patches.

When you start an OS then there will be additional check for all enabled patches if OS matched. If not matched then the patch will be disabled no matter of menu settings.

 

PS. Please reduce your comments in kexts patches. They used for menu!

 

Rev 3980

Same for kernel patches.


Rev 3981

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.
       
      EFI DIRECTORY
      http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=97606131925137056003
       
      HARDWARE
      CPU: Intel i5-8600K 3.6GHz hexacore (contains UHD 630 iGPU)
      CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim (no paste needed, and fan facing front)
      Mobo: GIGABYTE z370 AORUS Gaming 5 (WIFI)
      RAM: 1x 8GB CORSAIR Vengeance LPX C16 2666MHz (in first slot)
      GFX Card: Sapphire RX 580 NITRO+ SE
      SATA: used ports 0, 1, 3, 5 (HDD problems when connected to port 4)
      HDD: generic
      DVD Drive: generic
      PSU: EVGA 500W Semi Modular (but you should get 650W!)
      Case: CoolerMaster CM590 III
      Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
       
      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.

      VT-x / VT-d disable
      *Nota: Secure boot e csm valido solo per bios UEFI
      Materiale Occorrente 
      "OS X (Versione App.Store)”

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  AptioMemory --> (consigliato) 
                               : Driver64UEFI  ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi
                               : Selezionate l'altri driver come da successiva immagine,
       
      *Nota: Altri driver che si possono usare  al suo posto  sono:
       informazioni 
       
      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      Immagine 
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
      le info le trovate a questo post
