?!?!

XHCI is obviously for USB 3.0...

 

I know.

Without this patch I had 14 porst of USB2.0 + 1 port of USB 3.0, working in one connector only.

With this patch I have 14 ports of USB2.0 + 10 ports of USB 3.0, full working.

I see.

Yes. 14 + 1 == 15. Which matches the maximum port restrictions. This may because USB3 supports USB2 as well.

Hi.

It seems that CsrActiveConfig = 0xFFFF is broken. It means that SIP fully disabled rather than not set this property...

 

And. The "Family" can be also "Mac Pro". I think both "MacPro" and "Mac Pro" are okay.

So change

if (gSettings.smartUPS == TRUE || (AsciiStrnCmp (gSettings.FamilyName, "MacPro", 6) == 0)

to

if (gSettings.smartUPS == TRUE || (AsciiStrnCmp (gSettings.FamilyName, "MacPro", 6) == 0 || (AsciiStrnCmp (gSettings.FamilyName, "Mac Pro", 6) == 0)

BTW. I saw Revoboot used the "Family" without "spaces" in certain models, but Clover did. (e.g. "MacBookPro" v.s. "MacBook Pro")

If gSettings.CsrActiveConfig is set to 0xFFFF, Clover shouldn't set the NVRAM variable:

  //Hack for recovery by Asgorath
  if (gSettings.CsrActiveConfig != 0xFFFF) {
    SetNvramVariable(L"csr-active-config", &gAppleBootVariableGuid, Attributes, sizeof(gSettings.CsrActiveConfig), &gSettings.CsrActiveConfig);
  }

As for the Mac Pro family check, we could just compare gSettings.ProductName.

If gSettings.CsrActiveConfig is set to 0xFFFF, Clover shouldn't set the NVRAM variable:

  //Hack for recovery by Asgorath
  if (gSettings.CsrActiveConfig != 0xFFFF) {
    SetNvramVariable(L"csr-active-config", &gAppleBootVariableGuid, Attributes, sizeof(gSettings.CsrActiveConfig), &gSettings.CsrActiveConfig);
  }

Yep but I dunno why, when I set CsrActiveConfig to 0xFFFF, it shows that SIP is fully disabled. (I didn't set any of this before.) So I think 0xFFFF for  CsrActiveConfig in Clover may be broken.

As for the Mac Pro family check, we could just compare gSettings.ProductName.

Great! Good idea.

if (gSettings.smartUPS == TRUE || (AsciiStrnCmp (gSettings.FamilyName, "MacPro", 6) == 0 || (AsciiStrnCmp (gSettings.FamilyName, "Mac Pro", 6) == 0)

1) Bools should not be compared to TRUE/FALSE.

2) "MacPro" should be compared to a maximum length of 7 and "Mac Pro" to 8, otherwise you cannot be sure that the name is terminated then. You did not increase the max length in the 2nd check anyway.

Thanks. That boolean was not done by me. Oops. I don't have a look at Clover source code ATM, but I'd like to know that what's that '6' mean in AsciiStrnCmp() $3? It means the maximum length?

Good catch, the length shouldn't be 6. I didn't add the boolean comparison (it was already present in Clover's source) but it should be changed.

BTW could the value smartUPS be a string ('Yes' or 'No') instead of bool? If yes and then in this case we have to add this check as well...

My 2 cents are to deprecate "Yes"/"No", that adds unnecessary parsing, storage and comparison time for no real benefit. IF you want to keep it, there should be some Clover func to check bools.

.. It seems that almost all bools in config.plist are also supporting str

<string>Yes/No</string>

IMO the same as you. This will only make Clover source code more complicated (to check str besides bool)...

Thanks for those patches.

I'm testing them right now.

 

However there is a problem with the patch "Platform/AcpiPatcher: Set FADT PM Profile to 3 for Mac Pro":

error: too many arguments to function call, expected 2, have 3
    if ((gSettings.smartUPS == TRUE) || (AsciiStrCmp (gSettings.FamilyName, "MacPro", 6) == 0)) { 

                                         ~~~~~~~~~~~                                  ^

 
Fix for edk2 version 24109:
    if ((gSettings.smartUPS == TRUE) || (AsciiStrCmp(gSettings.FamilyName, "MacPro") == 0)) {

 

Edit:

About Platform: Fix external clock calculation for quad-pumped FSBs

I now have Busspeed information gone in system information and in clover log I have:

`FSB: 25 MHz` Is this correct? Shouldn't it be 100 MHz?

Before that patch I had 400 MHz.

I have sandy bridge i7 2600k @ 4.3 GHz

 

Edit2:

I just noticed your patch notes:

AppleSMBIOS.kext reads the FSB frequency from SMBIOS table type 132.
If this structure isn't present, it assumes that the processor uses
a quad-pumped FSB (multiplied by four) and reads the external clock
frequency from SMBIOS table type 4. Macs that lack SMBIOS table type
132 (Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge/Haswell/Broadwell/Skylake processors) set
the external clock to 25 MHz (one fourth of the FSB frequency). Set the
SMBIOS table type 4 external clock frequency to one fourth of the FSB
frequency and do not inject SMBIOS table type 132 for these processors.

According to that your patch works for me too. My question is: Is that information correct?

 

Edit3:

Apple open sourced the AppleSMBIOS, so I'm assuming you are correct.

Clover uses procedure IsPropertyTrue

{
  return Prop != NULL &&

@slice, sherlocks

 

the  nvram save scripts work good with EmuVariable now included with Clover. however, it was not properly screening out for systems that is does not need to save to a file.

please update Clover with these updated scripts.

I wish I don't miss something here, if I have, please let me know. 

 

I've seen @Sherlock and @tluck's great work on the script 80.save_nvram_plist.local, nice! 

 

Now, lvs1974 pushed it step forward to add UTC patch for 80.save_nvram_plist.local to support hibernate mode = 3 or hibernate mode = 25 pairing with his hibernatefixup plugin. 

 

Here's the latest 80.save_nvram_plist.local @Slice

      - 1st method: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon

      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      For any system kext installation\modification you need to boot with config_debug.plist (or disable SIP manually)
      Also on Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!

      Hi, I want to install MacOS Catalina on my laptop.
      I was installed MacOS Mojave previously but i had a lot of problem, for example my wifi's card (Dell DW1820A) had a problem: My pc sometimes doesn't boot up or pc after some minutes crashed or slowed. 
      Now i want to try again to install macOS.
       
      this is my spec: 
      HP 15-AY034NL 
      CPU: i7 6500U  with HD520
      SSD: 500GB SSD Samsung
      Wifi & Bluetooth: Dell DW1820A (Bluetooth: BCM2045A0) (Wifi: BCM94350ZAE)
      USB 3.0 
      Ethernet: Realtek 8100
       
      Attached in this thread, my old clover configuration created by me (CLOVER OLD) and clover with Wifi driver (CLOVER) created by Hervè (I had asked help at insanelymac's community)
       
      P.S SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH.
      Thanks in advance
