Clover Change Explanations

Rev 5052

Implemented a possibility to change injected kext. For example you want to text new version of VoodooPS2.kext while you have another one.

Place new kext in folder /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Off and your old kext in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other as usual.

Then go to menu and click disable one and enable another.

i.e. kexts in the folder Off are disabled by default.

Rev 5051


In a multi-GPU system, Clover will now detect to which GPU the monitor is connected, and put it first on the GPU list.


It is also now possible to use in config.plist at Devices/Properties, instead of the DevicePath where we want to inject properties, the string "PrimaryGPU" or "SecondaryGPU".
This can be used for injecting some properties always to active or inactive GPU.
An example for a case where this can come handy, and more information on how to use it, is detailed here.


Also, when using the config.plist option GUI/ShowOptimus, it will now show correctly at the bottom of GUI if monitor is currently connected to Intel or Discrete.

Rev 5064

Implemented a possibility to Clear CMOS from Clover.

If you forgot a password for BIOS you need no more to take a screwdriver. You may boot into Clover and then type SPACE key on reset button in second row.



I am not sure if the method will work for every hardware and hope we can find methods for different computers.

Rev 5068

Clover at sourceforge is synced to EDK2 tagged as edk2-stable201908.

This version of EDK2 is not on EDK2's sourceforge svn which is no longer maintened.  It is github only.

UDK2018 support is terminated due to incompatibility.

  • Get fresh copy of EDK2 from tag edk2-stable201908
  • copy Clover/Patches_for_EDK2 over EDK2 tree
  • clean rebuild Clover
