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>
    <string>Zero 892 10.12 16A254g</string>

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>

    <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?

Built with ./ebuild.sh -D CHECK_FLAGS

 

This feature change a method for Details menu called by press Space in main menu

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 12.43.26.png

 

I will accept propositions for other useful boot-args to be included here:

debug

npci

-alcbeta

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'.

See, VendorID = 0x1006 is Apple

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

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu

      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.

      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)

      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.
      Appreciate ! Acer 5750 Official Page
