Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create Mac OS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the Mac OS installer apps, it is capable to create a Mac OS installer on a drive completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides also to you some customization features and a better management of the hall macOS isntall media creation process
Allows you to create easily a macOS install media without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is you want to use it on a Mac.
- Simple to use UI that allows you to easily start the macOS install media creation process
- It can work with every Mac OS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside of it's resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers)
- You can use any drive or partition you want that can be erased and is at least 7 GB of size
- Works on Mac OS recovery, so you can create a macOS install media from a bootable macOS installer or from the macOs recovery, and you can use TINU to install macOS too.
- All vanilla, the macOS install medias created with this tool are 100% vanilla, just like you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in the terminal, with also some extra optiona features
- Open source, you will know what this program does on your computer and also you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code
- Does not requires to do anything of special first, just open the program
- No need to go in disk utility first, TINU can format your drive for you
- Uses recent and more modern APIs and SDKs and Swift 3 language
- Transparent graphics style available (use alt + s on the keyboard or View->Use transparent style)
- Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without needing for an update
- Advanced section, to customize your macOS install media
- Installer customization: Kernelcache/prelinkedknerel and boot files replacement (a feature that can be handy while dealing with old Macs or with beta installers when you need to mod or change the boot files some times)
- Clover EFI folder installer
Features that are planned for some future versions:
- Integrated EFI partition mounter tool (TINU can already mount EFI partitions from version 2.0, but a dedicated section which allows to mount every EFI partition in the system will be added)
- Install clover and configure clover
- Install kexts inside the kexts folder of clover
- Clover drivers customization
- Use custom dsdt in clover
- integrated pre-made clover config templates database from a remote and open repository
- Support for other languages, at least Italian Rquirements: - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer) - A drive or a free partition of at least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage device in your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media) Note that this app is under the GNU GPL v3 license so any reuse of the source code must follow the license's terms Latest stable TINU release: Download the app: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases View the source code: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/ Frequently asked questions about TINU: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs NOTE: if you have problems with your USB installer of 10.13.4 or newer version not being detected by clover you have to use the latest clover and if it still does not detectets your usb installer you have to remove the invivible file called .IAPhysicalMedia located into the root of the usb installer. This issue is caused by a changement in the apple's createinstallmedia, don't blame TINU for that, TINU does only uses the installer creation method from apple, which has been changed by appleitself, causing this problem for hackintosh users some times, this issue should be resolved in the latest versions of clover which will no longer require that you do changements to let your usb dive to be detected, a setting to do this fix automatically in tinu is also present TINU in the adavnced settings, starting from the version 2.0 of the app. I leave also some screenshots as well
Hey there, I was on macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 which was working perfectly. But yesterday I decided to update it to 10.14.0 Mojave from app store. I could see both Install macOS from USB as well as macOS main drive and recovery partition even in the reboot during installation but after it finished, it was all gone.
Interestingly, there is a boot entry in UEFI called Mac OS X but clover can't see it.
Another thing I would like to point is that my EFI partition number changed from 9 to 8 after installation.
Motherboard: Asus H81M CS CPU: i3 4150 Graphics: GTX 750 Ti
can you guys help me with some issues of my new hackintosh?
I'm running MacOs High Sierra 10.13.6 in my computer (Asus Prime H270-Plus, i5 7400, GTX 1050ti) and i have some issues;
1-ShutDown doesn't work (black screen with a spinning circle and it doesn't shut down). Same thing with sleep
2-System definition is iMac (Retina 5K, 27inch, late 2015), but it must be late 2017 (kaby-lake cpu)
3-Got an issue with my new mouse (logitech mx master 2s): for some reasons i can't use custom keys (keystroke). I've searched on the internet and i figure out that it may be some app-conflict
4-My TP-Link TL-WN881ND v2 isn't working. I tried to configure out but it seems not working. Now i'm using an ASUS USB-N13 and it working, but i've spent 16 euros for this card and i want it to work (without kernel panics)
5-I noticed that the cpu-fan runs in a strange way. It it runs steadily, but sometimes the speed increases slightly. Do i need to install cpu-sensor.kext?
Everything else is working like a charm and i'm very proud of my 3-weeks spent to make it work.
For future upgrade (like new ssd or nwme, because i'm running on an 120gb Sandisk SSD), have i only to paste the actual EFI folder in to my new bootable USB?
Anybody can help me? Here is my config.plist
My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips.
Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows.
I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball.
I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button).
I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same.
I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent.
I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail.
What's the best way to troubleshoot this?
Ho installato da tempo High Sierra su un disco SDD separato, mentre su un'altro SSD c'è Windows 10 e su di un al'tro disco Linux-Ubuntu.
Purtroppo non so come e perché, ma sicuramente per qualcosa che ho fatto, ma che non ricordo, all'avvio del PC, quando premo il tasto F12 per selezionare il sistema operativo da avviare, mi compare ancora OSX, ma Clover putroppo non si avvia (si vede il messaggio Faild to open \EFI\BOOT\grubx64.efi - Not Found ecc... start_image() returned Not Found).
E' possibile riavviare High-Sierra già installato (partizione APFS), in un qualche modo?
