Rev 4716

new way for reset native NVRAM in GUI by Sherlocks. thanks to vit9696.

 - it's perfectly same process by vit9696's CleanNvram.efi. now we can't properly delete NVRAM variables in Mojave. so if you want to clean NVRAM, press F11 in GUI.

 - caution! your bootorder also will be deleted(it means that bootorder initialized) if you have a dual boot(macos and windows). it's different according to user system

 

Rev 4717

Instruction is follow

1. With vector graphics editor import PNG file into your svg file.

2. Select the object and convert it into pattern.

3. Create an empty shape and set for it Fill->Pattern. There is an circle in the screen.

4. The pattern ID always must be "pattern_xxx" i.e. contain the word "pattern".

Rev 4752

Multilevel dithering. By default level = 1.

level = 0 will be without dithering.

For radial gradients like on Clovy vector theme this is not enough. A distance between different colors is too big. So we need dithering with larger steps. I can't calculate the step automatically, so I introduce addition for SVG "ditherCoarse".

It must have a namespace Clover to be ignored by other applications.

	<radialGradient id="GrayRadialBackground_1_" cx="358.2806" cy="0.743" r="0.8783"
                    gradientTransform="matrix(4.700000e-14 768 -768 4.700000e-14 1176.1536 -274946.875)" 
                    gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse" 
                    clover:ditherCoarse="16">
		<stop  offset="0" style="stop-color:#606060"/>
		<stop  offset="1" style="stop-color:#1F1F1F"/>
	</radialGradient>

So there is a result.

Test square dithered with coarse level=1. As well as the sphere.

While radial background with coarse=16

In <clover:theme ... settings there will be

BootCampStyle="1"

 

And there must be indicator image. I draw simple triangle

	<g id="selection_indicator">
	  <rect visibility="hidden" id="BoundingRect_141_" x="83" y="15" class="st162" width="64" height="64"/>
    	<path d="M 490.376 309.525 Q 490.992 308.43 491.641 309.525 L 507.876 336.934 Q 508.525 338.029 507.26 338.029 L 475.613 338.029 Q 474.348 338.029 474.964 336.934 Z" style="fill: rgb(216, 216, 216);" />

Rev 4794

Implemented command line to manage boot.efi output

Explanations by vit9696 

 

By default I set command line as "log=0" it means you will not see long output from system start to ++++++

The setting can be changed in Clover GUI->Options->System parameters

Rev 4840

Sync and Async sound play.

Sync play - sound play before enter Clover GUI. Clover GUI started after the sound is finished.

Async play - sound started to play before Clover GUI started and continue playing when GUI is ready.

To switch edit config.plist

	<key>GUI</key>
	<dict>
		<key>PlayAsync</key>
		<false/>

In theory async is better. But somehow async playing is buggy so default is false.

Rev 4847-4852

There is interface in Clover GUI to tune startup sound parameters

screenshot4.png

Computer will play a sound before enter Clover GUI. To do this you have to

1. Use CloverX64.efi revision 4852 or up.

2. Place AudioDxe-64.efi into drivers64 and drivers64UEFI. Playing is possible in both legacy and UEFI modes. AudioDxe.efi is included into Clover project and will be differ from original by Goldfish64 but almost compatible.

3. Place sound.wav and may be sound_night.wav into your theme folder, for example /EFI/CLOVER/theme/Clovy/. The sound must be 16bit, and 44100 or 48000Hz. But I also made conversion on the fly so 8000Hz is also supported.

4. Tune sound output in Clover GUI as on screen above. The settings will be stored in NVRAM and used next restart. With legacy Clover or systems without nvram you have to use EmuVariableUefi.efi and rc.scripts to save nvram.plist. For very new systems like Z370 where nvram is not working in macOS there is a chance that the nvram is working on Clover level and so all will works. SIC! Legacy Clover saved Variables only with Apple guid so why it will not work. After some discussing I may rebuild the system to use AppleBootGuid. In this case the system will not be compatible with the original driver but will work with legacy systems.

 

No more needs in BootChimeCfg and BootChimeDxe while the compatibility still remains.

      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 
       
       
       
      STEP 3 - Stop Windows Boot manager from overriding Clover boot manager
       
      How to stop Windows boot manager from overriding your Hackintosh Clover boot manager when using dual booting between macOS and Windows

      Hey!
      As I have 3 Monitors connected, my RX 570 gets arround 50°C while ideling/ web browsing etc. The problem is, that this temp is apparently just the threshold, when the fans start to spin. So the fans start spinning for a minute then they stop for a while again... This is very annoying for me as the rest of my hackintosh is nearly quiet (SSD, 120mm low RPM cpu fan, nearly silent PSU,...), especially when Im using the pc to revise for school. Does somebody know wether its possible to "change" the threshold till the fans start spinning? Like it would probably not be a problem for the gpu at all, if the temp rises to 55°C but therefore be soundless....

      Cloud Clover Editor allows you to manage Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs everywhere!
       
       
      WEB
      Open Cloud Clover Editor
       
      APP (MacOS - Discontinued)
      Clover flying editor ( Micky1979 )
       
       
       
       
      Sources: https://bitbucket.org/kylon/cloud-clover-editor-cce/overview


      To run CCE at home you will need:
       
      An HTTP server (Apache, Nginx, ...) PHP 5.3.3+ (latest PHP version is always recommended for better performances/security) Sqlite3 PHP extension  
       
      Some Features:
       
      Edit text in tables:
      Editable fields are marked with a text cursor.
      Double click, or tap and hold, to open the inline editor.
      You can now press Enter or click outside to save your changes.
       
       
      Tri-state checkboxes:
      There are 3 possible states for a checkbox: Checked, indeterminate and unchecked.
       
      Checked: Value is true;
      Indeterminate: Value is false;
      Unchecked: Value is not set (ie, removed from plist)
       
      Working with multiple configs:
      The right sidebar is your multitasking menu.
      Use the add button to create a new config and add it to the list.
      You can safely switch between all your configs, no changes will be lost.
      You can mix Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs.


      Config Upgrade feature:
      In the case you are using old configuration options, CCE gives you the ability to automatically upgrade your config.
       
       
      Copy to:
      You can copy patches between your configs (you will love this when you need to copy kernel and kext patches ;D ).
      You will find a yellow copy icon if that field does support the copyTo feature.
       
       
      Ozmosis Mode:
      A new setting, Cloud Clover Editor Mode, is now added in Cloud Clover Editor -> CCE Settings.
      This will let you switch from Clover EFI to Ozmosis mode.
      Changes to your current file will be lost.
       
       
      CCE Bank 2.0:
      Thanks to @cecekpawon for the idea.
       
      CCE Bank is a database where you can save/load Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs.
      You can protect your config from unwanted modifications or make a publicly editable config.
       
      To save a config in CCE Bank you only need to check the "Save to CCE Bank" option.
       
      Tick the box generate a new CID, if you don t have one.
       
      A CID (CCE ID) acts like a container and it is your authentication key.
      You can group multiple configs under the same CID or generate as many CIDs as you like.
       
      Edit Modes:
      Public: Anyone can make modifications, only the owner can change its settings. Private: Only the owner can make modifications and change its settings. MyBank: Only the owner can see this config, make modifications or change its settings.  
      MyBank is your private area.
      Change the 'view mode' to switch between the public bank and your personal bank.
       
      To manage your currently loaded config, go to Cloud Clover Editor -> Open config -> click the settings button.
       
       
      Notes:
      Locked/Private configs are marked with a padlock MyBank configs are only visibile in your private area Only the owner of a locked config can save the modifications in CCE Bank, hower you are free to do whatever you want in CCE and download the modified config If you loose your CID you can just reply or pm me No account is required!  
       
      Main Features:
      Left sidebar does support touch swipe on touch devices.
      No changes will be lost on page reload.

      So I'm finally joining the grown-ups and trying to set up a new(ish) hack. In the past I've used legacy Clover with my old Gigabyte board and thought I knew what I was doing. But I've been trying to get a UEFI Clover-based install to work and it's going nowhere.
       
      My new system (listed as SysB in sig) is a Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H-BK rev1.1 with firmware F6, an i7 4790K CPU and 4x4GB Corsair 1866MHz. I have the firmware settings set as per various guides and thought this should be a pretty painless transition...
       
      I have successfully run the installer for El Cap several times, but can't get the machine to boot reliably - it seems to change behaviour each boot. Sometimes boot hangs at the Gigabyte logo after choosing boot volume via F12, sometimes it boots to clover but displays no bootable drives, sometimes displays ElCap SSD in Clover but wont boot from it with kernel cache error, and occasionally it will boot all the way.
       
      What I'd like to know is:
       
      Should I update the mobo firmware to the latest version? This board has two more recent Bios software downloads, but they wont allow me to drop back to the version currently installed. I'm nervous to update unless this is likely to be the culprit. Is this just a UEFI issue? If the simple answer is just go legacy mode, maybe I should just avoid the issue... FInally, does anyone else have a working clover install on this board they could share with me? I think I've got it set up as it should be but the strange inconsistent boot behaviour makes me wonder... Thanks
