***************UPDATE 7/18/2015****************

 

WORKING

-wireless with card found here (https://partstore.com/Part/Lenovo/Lenovo/20200480/Refurbished.aspx) And kexts in new kext pack from rehabman. Thanks to chuppiejones!

-Battery stat (thanks to srinn for the DSDT edit!!!)

 -bluetooth OOB (no turn off option, might need work)

-brightness and graphic acceleration

-sound (with voodookext from rehabman)

-touch/pen (with stock wacom driver from website)

-Micro SD OOB

-All USB ports OOB

 

 

 

 

NOT WORKING

-volume rocker (i got it to work with one click then after it doesnt work)

-sleep (automatically wakes up)

-SD fullsize (not recognized)

The SD card not working seems like good news and bad news to me, the bad news, it doesnt work, the good news this might be the reason sleep isnt working either. So hopefully we can kill two birds with one stone.

 

 

 

For this install I will be using two USB drives, one as an installer the second to install to.  Alternatively you could create two partitions on the installer USB if its big enough (16gb or larger) and install to the second partition this however will slow down the install.  Later when I have the install stable enough I will extend this guide to make it an internal multi boot guide. Also please note that the USB drive you use seems to be quite important. A fast USB3.0 drive is necessary for the computer to recognize it at boot otherwise it will always boot into windows.  I had trouble with this and could only find a couple drives (very new) that would work, all my older drives werent recognized fast enough to load the clover boot menu.

 

 

 

 

                                                          _____Creating USB INSTALLER_____

 

-Download yosemite from the mac app store
- put a thumb drive into your mac and open disk utility.
-Partition the drive as GUID with MAC os extended journaled format
-name the drive Yosemite
-open terminal and copy and paste this command
sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume/Volumes/Yosemite --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --no interaction

 

 

                                                                 Installing clover

 

 

Now open Clover_v2.3k_r3185 (the version im currently using and will include in the zip file), click Continue > Continue > Change Install Location

Select the “Installer” partition you made. 

Click Customize

Select Install for UEFI booting only

select one theme ( I prefer bootcamp)

Under Drivers64UEFI select 

   -EmuVariableUefi-64

   -OsxAptioFixDrv-64

  -PartitionDxe-64

 

Then click install.

 

                                                            Customizing clover with our files

When its finished you will notice a new mounted partition/drive on your computer called EFI, this is the hidden boot partition of your installer drive. 

Navigate to EFI > EFI > CLOVER > kexts

Paste the fakesmc kext included in the zip file into the "10.10" folder and the "other" folder.

Navigate to the EFI > CLOVER > ACPI > Patched and paste all the .aml files from the DSDT folder in the included zip.

Navigate to EFI > CLOVER and overwrite the current config.plist with the config.plist included in the zip file.

 

                                                                   Initial Install

Once finished eject your newly made installer usb drive and plug it into the top usb port on your cintiq (this port seems to work best for me, but maybe im just crazy)  Boot the device holding volume up to enter BIOS.  In bios, go to the "boot" tab and disable all boot options but leave the first one as usb key. Have fast boot disabled.  In "UEFI Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities" make sure everything is disabled as well as in "Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities.  Im not sure this is all necessary but this is whats working for me.  Save changes and exit.  Essentially you should disable any internal drive from booting so it will look for your USB key.  However I had issues and it kept booting windows anyway, mostly due to what I assume was a slow USB 2.0 drive.  After switching to only USB3.0 drives and putting them in the top port, i didnt have the issue.  Now when you boot the device it should load into the clover boot screen.  Just select the installer and hit enter.

 

 This should boot into the OS X Yosemite installer without any issues. From here select the drive you want to install to. If you have to go into the disk utility and partition a drive.  

 

                                                                          First boot up!  Woohoo!

When the install is finished the computer will restart. 

Boot back into clover this time selecting the new install.

 

Download the most recent wacom cintiq driver for OSX and put it on your usb drive, install it and you should be good to go.  I will update this with the different files as I make changes and get other things working. Keep in mind not all of this might be necessary and some of the options might not be the best in the config file. If anyone has any input feel free to let me know and I will update.  

 

 

 

Install pack version 3 7-18-2015

Added updated DSDT from srinn for working battery, removed acpiplatform kext

Added kext files for working wifi with aftermarket card thanks to chuppiejones

Companion2packV3.zip

 

 

 

Install pack version 2  3-3-2015 ( OUTDATED )

Added sound and battery kexts.  While i understand DSDT editing is the preferred method for battery to work, half way thru the process I found myself considering a gunshot to the face instead.  I have some linux experience but it was just god damn frustrating and time consuming, especially knowing these kexts get the job done.  If anyone wants to go thru with the DSDT edit for the battery I would gladly use/host it here with credit. 

Use kext wizard to install the kexts in the "kexts to install" folder, then repair permissions and rebuild caches.

Install pack version 1 2-26-2015 ( OUTDATED )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hey guys just wanted to set up a place holder for when I get the guide finished, but here is a video of me successfully running yosemite with full pen (prefpane, hotkey) and touch support!! really excited, finally seeing all the work i did for months on the previous model finally come to fruition is amazing!!

is it any better than the samsung ATIV Smart PC 700T1C? They are both Wacom powered and great for artists, just that this CINTiQ C2 is a lot expensive :/

Hey guys, just got full acceleration and brightness control.  So far the only things not working are volume rocker (Sound works) and wifi, which has to be swapped out.  Everything else that I can tell is pretty much good to go.  I will have a guide up shortly.  yeah the cintiq companion 2 is leaps and bounds better than the ativ, because the hotkeys on the side work as well as the pro pen. This is really my dream machine, ive been working on this forever!

Amazing, the device tho is expensive and have a low battery up time :/ too bad

Mactabletman this is also like my dream device, thank you so much for your work, it is priceless. Have you found a solution to get the wifi working ? That's the only annoying thing about it.

 

I'm an electrical engineer, don't know if I can be of any help. I'm still waiting for Wacom to release the Broadwell (enhanced) version though...

You may need to change the wifi card as it may be unsupported by OS X :)

Hi midi, thank you for your answer if I've understood well this new cintiq OSx86 has been possible thank to your knowledge and work so thank you also for that :yes: .

 

Sure I saw the video of mactabletman on youtube unmounting it to install ram , he had a Wifi module for replacement too but the new wifi module is smaller and seems to have a different connector.

 

Do you know a Wifi module that would work with OS X and compatible with this connector ? I guess OS X only support specific list of Wifi chipset and we just have to find one that has the right form factor and connector. Do you have a list of these compatible chipsets ? (I guess I could do a bit of search here and find them)

 

If we don't find and adequate one on the market and if we manage to find the data signals on the motherboard connector side, I might be able to do a PCB layout for one and get it assembled in China. I live in HK which is near Shenzhen, I also have experience in designing PCBs with Wifi.

 

This new cintiq companion on OSX if fully functional (wifi is really the last crucial thing) would be even better than a mod book pro, can't wait to get it.

 

P.S.: Indeed R.I.P VAIO I still remember buying a PCG-C1 XN 15 years ago I loved it so much.

Hey alexway! Glad to see you here and as passionate about this project as I! I have been looking to make something like this happen since I worked on the samsung 7 slate years ago, but nothing ever fit the bill as perfectly as this. I agree this is a modbook killer as it has hotkeys, touchscreen, actual wacom hardware, and is half the price!!! From what I understand this is the only option as far as wifi, but you might want to double check also its hard to come by and expensive. I will eventually buy it im sure but for now im going to use a cheap usb dongle.

alex.daoud, thanks for the help!  Midi! great to see you again! If i recall correctly you helped me get the graphics acceleration on the last cintiq!  I have battery and sound working, i will update the guide in a minute for you guys with whats working and what needs work.

Hi mactabletman, good to see we are on the same wavelength. Yes no hotkeys and no touch screen is really making the modbook less attractive.

 

I've also understood that the BCM94352Z NGFF M.2. is the only option at the time for Yosemite, a bit expensive but still cheap compared to the modbook. Can't wait to get my hands on the Cintiq Companion 2 now.

 

Do you think that your guide will work out of the box on the broadwell version or you can see some part that would need to be modified ?

Wut???? :shock: really??! I don't remember that! :o anyway, good for you :D I'm gonna buy the Samsung Ativ smart PC pro, looks outdated, but it does the work and not as pain in the ass as this Centiq :P and have a longer battery life :)

alexway. Thats actually a good question and i was wondering the same. Hopefully it all works right out of the box. Are there any macs with similar processors? midi thats a great idea. The ativ is a great ps and very under rated. still use mine! The only downside is the lack of hotkeys but if you get a little keyboard you should be good.

Hey, this is great news! Time to get rid of my CC1 :) I spend last week trying to get the Wacom driver to work, but no luck 'till yet. If anyone knows how to inject new USB product-id's, I'd be pleased to hear. The Wacom driver doesn't read them from a info.plist...

 

But, tell me, which model of the Companion 2 do you use? Obviously you can upgrade memory and harddrive, the cpu likely not :) Did you already do some benchmarking on the tablet? I'm not sure yet which model to choose.

 

What about the screen rotation. Does it work? And can you still use it as a regular Cintiq on a desktop? Or is it independent of the os/software?

 

I'm really excited about this!! This is like the perfect tool to work with :)

Hey atmark, Your name looks familiar, what forum do I know you from? Anyway, welcome to the project! As for screen rotation it used to work on macs but it was taken out a long time ago. I imagine something can be written to take advantage of the sensors, for now you can use an app that manually rotates it, so yes its rotatable but you have to do it by hand instead of it being auto.  The cintiq mode im not sure about yet. I had it connected to my macbook while both were on OSX then I turned the cintiq off and my macbook turned black then displayed the screen as a secondary screen like the cintiq was using the primary desktop. Then when I turned the cintiq back on it said that the drive had been ejected from my macbook (Which was connected to the cintiq) meaning a lot of the cintiq mode is internally hardware dependent and we might be able to hack the driver or write something up. Hopefully! I went into windows this morning and stored all the device ids, I will dig around in the ioreg files of OSX later tomorrow, unfortunately now I have to sleep, then school then work.

Does the tablet rotate on Windows? Post the DSDT and Ioreg (From IORegExplorer v2.1) and I will have a look at how rotation works on the device.

      Prequel
       
      Hi, my name is Luan and today I will show how I installed the OS X Yosemite version 10.10.3 on my ultrabook.
      I know that my procedure maybe can be made in other ways, but this is about how I made it.
      I am part of this world for four years. Since the launch of XCode 7 and no need to sign the Developer Program to test applications on the iPhone, I decided to install OS X.
      God bless WWDC15 (I'm not religious, just a popular saying in my country).
       
       
      What works and what does not work
       
      - Processor ->  Work. i5-3317U @ 1.7Ghz/2.6Ghz.  SpeedStep 8 to 26 stages. AsusAICPUPM <true/> in Clover config.plist. 
      - Video Card ->  Work. HD4000. Full QE/CI.
      - Chipset ->  Work.
      - HDMI ->  Work.
      - VGA ->  Not work. I did not have time to fix yet.
      - Audio ->  Work. Kext VoodooHDA + AppleHDADisabler.
      - WiFi ->  Work. Replaced by Athero 9285 Wifi/Bluetooth.
      - Ethernet ->  Work. Kext Experimental Atheros AR81(31/32/51/52/61/62/71/72) Driver for 10.7/10.8.
      - Touchpad and keyboard ->  Work. Kext ELAN, FocalTech and Synaptics (Smart Touchpad) Driver (Mac OS X).
      - FN keyboards keys ->  Not work. I did not have time to fix yet.
      - Brightness control ->  Work. DSDT patch.
      - Sleep ->  Work.
      - Battery ->  Work. Kext ACPIBatteryManager by RehabMan and DSDT patch (below).
      - Card Reader -> Not tested. I have no adapters.
      - Integrated Camera ->  Work. Kext AnyiSightCam.
      - Bluetooth ->  Work. Kext Bluetooth Firmware Uploader and ControllerPowerState change to 1.
      - Boot Logo ->  Work.
       
       
      What I needed to install
       
      - Running install of Yosemite on VMware -> Downloaded version 10.10 via torrent (Google it). You can use a real Mac of an friend. I believe that Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8), Mavericks (10.9) also work.
      - Two USB flash drives of 8GB -> One for OSX install and another to the bootloader. This second not need to be 8GB, a 256MB is perfect.
      - OS X Yosemite install app -> Downloaded via App Store inside the virtual machine. I used version 10.10.3.
      - CloverEFI -> Also downloaded inside the virtual machine. I used build 3229.
      - DSDT patch skills -> Needed to battery works. How to patch DSDT.
       
      P.s.: You can use a single flash drive, in my install I used two because I don't wanted lose the os install created on the main flash drive.
       
       
      How I created flash cards
       
      Install flash drive:
       
      Partially used @snatch guide. More specifically this part:
       
       
       
       
       
       
      In the part above used the first flash drive (8GB).
       
      Bootloader flash drive:
       
      Format the second flash drive with GUID partition and Journaled file system type. If you want to use only one flash card, don't format!
       
      Downloaded the CloverEFI (used 3229) and installed with this options:

      Options:
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - Drivers64UEFI - CsmVideoDxe-64
      - Drivers64UEFI - OsxAptioFixDrv-64
       
      Will be created a partition named EFI. Edit the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist and change those values:
       
      - SystemParameters - InjectKexts - <true/>
      - Graphics - Inject - ATI - <false/>
      - Graphics - Inject - Intel - <true/>
      - Graphics - ig-platform-id - 0x01660003
      - KernelAndKextPatches - AsusAICPUPM - <true/>
       
      P.s.: I will provide below my config.plist as attachment.
       
      Now you will capable to boot in installation, but your keyboard and mouse will not work. Let's fix that:
       
      - Download the Smart Touchpad kext from here. I used the version 4.3. This also enable the touchscreen.
      - Download the FakeSMC kext from here. I used the version 6.9.1315. This is very important. Can't boot without it.
      - Put the Kexts inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10/
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      BIOS Setup Configuration
       
      - Intel Virtualization Technology: Disabled
      - VT-d: Disabled
      - USB Configuration - XHCI Pre-Boot Mode: Disabled
       
      P.s.: BIOS version 210.
       
       
      Installing indeed
       
      - Plug in the two flash drives.
      - When appear the Asus logo, press ESC once to enter Boot Menu.
      - Select the flash drive name with UEFI prefix. In my case "UEFI: KingstonDataTraveler 2.0PMAP".
      - On CloverEFI menu, use arrow to mark the flash drive with de OS X install, press Space on keyboard and select: "Boot Mac OS X in verbose mode".
      - As usual, format your HDD or SSD as GUID and Journaled. Make more partitions if you need. Take a note of the OSX partition name you entered on Disk Utillity.
      - After that, go ahead as always and start the instalation.
      - Go in the kitchen grab some lunch. You deserve it.
       
       
      Post installation
       
      What we have so far? The system installed on your ultrabook. Now you need to get rid of bootable flash drive installing the bootloader on HDD or SSD.
       
      Installing the bootloader in internal HDD or SSD:
       
      - Boot again selecting the flash drive on Boot menu. Same you did before.
      - Now select the partition you noted early.
      - If you do everything wright, the system will start normally.
      - Now you will use the CloverEFI install package again (same options from above). This time, the target will be your OS X installed partition.
       
      Our adorable ultrabook don't boot EFI if partition on the HDD or SSD if isn't MS-DOS. We will need to format and install Clover again.
       
      - Open the Terminal and enter "sudo -s".
      - Run the command: "diskutil list".
      - Take note of what location is your EFI. Usually it is "rdisk0s1". Make sure it's correct or you loose your data.
      - Now, let's format it, now execute: "newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/rdiskXsX". rdiskXsX is your EFI partition location from line above.
       
      Now you need to copy all data of your flash card bootloader to the root of your new created EFI partition on internal disk.
      This EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with "diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXsX".
       
      Just restart without flash drives to test.
       
      Others Kexts:
       
      Download the kexts from the links below. I strongly recommend always use newest versions. If you are too lazy, I attach on end of the post.

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....

      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.

      Hi to all!

      I've installed Yosemite on:
      - i5 4690
      - ASRock H87M Pro4 (with intel ethernet I219-V) (IntelMausiEthernet, AppleIntelE1000 and RehabMan for I219V kexts)
      - 8gb ddr3 RAM
      - 1tb hard disk
       
      If I disable I219-V from BIOS, when I shutdown it, don't reboots (tested with all kexts)
      If I enable I219-V from BIOS, when I shutdown it, the system reboots.
       
      How can I fix this? Thanks!

      Hi guys, I recently installed OS X 10.10 Yosemite on my PC, everything was fine in the installation, video card already configured and working perfectly, the sound also had no problems, but I just can not connect to the internet, no connection with ethernet etc ... I tested some kex but it did not work.
