Sorry guys for butting in again :blush:

The first time I ran the installer I successfully got into the installer interface and formatted the SSD and stuff, but after it rebooted to continue the install, it got through an error (probably a corrupted installer, since my other hack ran into the same error) so I dled again a new installer, tried it on my other hack, it's fully functional, but since then, the tablet wont boot the installer interface, (note that I kept the FW that it worked on it the first time) and gets stuck on the Apple logo, the loading bar and the spinning pointer! I left it for more than 15 mins, still no signe! am I missing something (I can upload the config I'm using riight now, it's exactly as provided on the OP post).

Try putting the fakesmc in 10.10, 10.11 and other folders and look in the guide of Page 4 the options in clover configs for more compatibility

thanks. i not have any third party usb kernelextentions an  in clover only fakesmc and the cloverconfig i do not check any usb fix y try to repatch the dsdt. about the multitouch gestures uninstall the upped and wacom drivers and reboot reinstall the wacaom driver and reboot and for last reinstall the uppd and he is working.

 

i was never able to get wacom properly recognized, see pic. tho the pen input works via touch-base so i didnt really mind. any idea where to look for wacom issue?

Uninstall uppd to test the wacom drivers. If the wacom drivers work correctly reinstall uppd and If not work correctly uninstall the wacom drivers ánd reinstal ir. Only after working correctly the wacom drivers install uppd.

When instal uppd the wacom app not work anymore and all the config forma the Pen ánd touch its in the touchbase app.

Surely a bad fakesmc or clover config

Look at it before post your files.

ok, so I successfully installed OS X (using guide in page 4), so far got most stuff working (including wacom) BUT I ran into some problems: 

  • the kyb power led keeps flashing (I think you must have the same thing too)
  • the touchscreen driver seem not working: I dont have gestures nor right click
  • Sleep works, but on wake, I really dont know why it doesn't wake on a simple click, it's like when I'm powering the tablet on (1 sec press) and I have to press it a second time to wake the screen
  • Sleep works, but sometimes it hangs and the fan start spinning at an incredible speed, until I press the power button and it wakes "as if it was from sleep"
  • The battery is showing me 100% all the time, that's DSDT for sure! (I'll try repatching it from scratch)

For Audio, I would like you to provide me with the patches applied to the AppleHDA to make a DummyHDA + Clover Patching + Inject, this will keep the audio working even after updates/upgrades. If it's generic patches that Mirone/Toleda made, then just tell me I'll make a DummyHDA + Clover and post it here :)

Thanks for the guide both of you :)

 

Other than that, none of you seem talking about trim, I enabled it using trimforce command (10.11 ONLY)

sudo trimforce enable

A notice will appear, read it, accept it if you want to proceed, then it will reboot the device after enabling it. :)

-for the kyb led press caps lock.

 

-uninstall touch base and wacom driver and reboot. after reboot install wacom drivers for bamboo tablets and reboot. and look if the wacom app in system preferences its working correctly. you can install the touch base provided in the guide of page 4 whit multitouch gestures after the wacom drivers works correctly.

 

-about the sleep issues here is the same.(I've researched about this issues but i don't find what cause the issue because i am too noob im OS X.)

 

-the battery percentage here its working correctly try patching dsdt extracted whit clover f4.

 

-the audio i don't know how its working because the kext and dsdt patch its @keiner99 who post it.

 

-about the trim i enable whit the same command but forgot to include in the guide.

ok for DSDT, I suggest adding "AC Adapter Fix" since I found out (thanks to HWMonitor) that OS X percentage refresh rate is so slow and inaccurate, this will fix it.

moreover, the UPDD driver breaks Wacom Drivers, if you could, please upload the driver without the Wacom Drivers so that they wont interfere with the Bamboo drivers, I tried removing the device from UPDD but the app hangs and the touchscreen freezes (I used the trackpad after that).


and the brightness doesn't work for me, I applied the patch you pointed to but still, I tried a patch that I use on my other hack (since they are both HD4000) same result.

the updd assume the management of touch screen because this the wacom app not work anymore after install updd. but i don't understand who is the error whit updd. the gestures not work? or whats the error?.

 

i attached my clover folder to this post. they have boot dsdt (patched and original). compare with your dsdt to find the differences. or try these solution.

weird!

My DSDT looks EXACTLY as yours (I used the disassembled DSDTs and compared them with DiffMerge) and I even tried your DSDT instead of mine (something that I wouldn't recommend tho) and the brightness didn't work. I tried that kext same thing, I tried with and without BIOS Auto-brightness, still... weird! the slider works anyway and at the lowest level the screen becomes black.

and for the touch driver, don't reinstall it, just recalibrate it and it will give you 100 other clicks, after 24 hours, you can reinstall it :)

now i found a AppleHDA which is perfectly working with autoswitch function in 10.10.5 :D

 

add this to HDEF in DSDT:

            Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
            {
                Store (Package (0x06)
                    {
                        "hda-gfx", 
                        Buffer (0x0A)
                        {
                            "onboard-1"
                        }, 

                        "layout-id", 
                        Buffer (0x04)
                        {
                            0x1C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
                        }, 

                        "PinConfigurations", 
                        Buffer (Zero) {}
                    }, Local0)
                DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
                Return (Local0)
            }
        }

and install the attached AppleHDA to S/L/E with any kext installer!

to have sound again after sleep, you have to use Audio Reset, its attached ;)

 

Could you please post the patches you applied on the AppleHDA, I will make a DummyHDA + Clover patching, so that audio will still work even after upgrades! Thanks

ok here ya go: DSDT.aml


btw, I just discovered some stuff:

  • if you keep pressing power button for 2 to 3 secs, the power dialog will appear (I found it because of my habit on my android tablet :P )
  • The touch has a considerable delay! When I touch something, there is at least 500ms delay to be really touched, is it normal or it's my configuration?
  • The UPDD Console hangs when I try to remove Wacom Driver after disabling it (weird, I hope someone send us the same installer with no Wacom drivers so that we work with the original drivers)

That's all for now.

ok i try your dsdt and battery, brightness and all its working only the sound is not working because the hde patch and dtgp patch is missing but after apply this patches all its working. what version of bios you got? the mine is P10AAT. and you try the samsung settings and the patch of brigthnes in windows?. 

 

about the touch later i upload a video of the response of the touch to compare. and i think the updd kidnap the wacom driver and uses it because this the updd don't work whitout the wacom driver. he depends of him.

 

edit: link of the video whit your dsdt

Touch base and wacom are two different pci device.

If you have no supported tablet found, please install the provided plist as explain in the guide.

No delay here.

See your touch base driver configuration.

i know it's different, I tried patching the kext (by removing the wacom ids) but the app hangs and the touch is blocked! 

and for touch delay, try touching a folder to select it, between the time that you pressed and the response time that the driver gave there is a lag, it's not visible while swiping or dragging, just when you try to touch something, and that makes the keyboard unusuable, since some letter may not be touched and ignored, other may be touched repetitively!

for bios, yes I have the latest version, I think I may downgrade it later (if anyone got P09AAT) thanks :)

ok I fixed the touch delay by disabling double tap function in Gestures app, the brightness is still the same no matter what, if you want to, could you send me your bios dumb so that I try it on my device and check, im sure it's bios fw related! And for audio I will make it happen no matter what :P

      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....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      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!

      Hi,

      I know those PMs drives have issues with MacOS/hackintosh as the booting drive. But anyone using them as storage devices only?

      I want to use them to store my data only, not booting the OS.

      Thanks!

      Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host
      Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. 
       
      The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh.
       
      There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there….
       
      I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg
       
      @colt2 HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware
      @dsmccombs comment on faking Ivybridge Processor
      @E:V:A http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=55572430&postcount=6
      @Tech Reviews video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7X07U63lwg.
      VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX
       
      Requirements
         Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X)    4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X)    Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine    Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34    Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75    16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC  
      Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack
      1.  On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder.
      2.  Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes.  Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete.
       
       
       
      3.  Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script:
      cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4.  At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later.
       
       
      Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox
      1.  Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM.
       

       
      2.  Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version.  I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next...
       

       
      3.  Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next.
       

       
      4.  Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button.
       

       
      5.  For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare.  Click next...
       

       
      6.  For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space).
       

       
      7.  On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger.  When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI.
       

       
      8.  Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings....
         a.  On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?)
       

       
         b.  On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2
       

       
         c.  On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB
       

       
         d.  On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". 
       

       
      Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier...
       

       
         e.  Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings.
       
       
      Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac
      1.  From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 
       

       
      2.  Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter>  after each line.  Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick...

      To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff or
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff 4.  Close the command prompt window.
       
       
      Installation of El Capitan
      We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine....
       



       
      Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer:
      1.  Select language, agree to legal terms
       

       
      2.  Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended.  I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan.
       

       
      3.  Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on.
      4.  After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete.  At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive.  The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive.
      5.  At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout.  You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish…
      6.  Create a User Account and select your Time Zone.  You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple….
      7.  Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop.
       

       
      8.  Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted.  Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). 
       
       
      Customization with VBoxManage
      1.  You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt:
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively.
       
      Update:  For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed...
       
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution)
      eg
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2.  Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen
      VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html.
       
      Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD
      The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite .  Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware.
       
      With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie
       
      To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5...
       

       
      Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above).  Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free .
       

       
      UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51.
      UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365:  For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73.
      UPDATE macOS Mojave 18A391:  For macOS Mojave or High Sierra, use macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 4 of thread.
      UPDATE macOS Catalina Beta DP3_19A501i:  For Catalina, @jpz4085 has made an automated batch file to create a Catalina VM in Windows with iMac 14,2 SMBIOS.  You can still use my macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 5 to make an installer ISO to attach to the VM.
       
       
       
      Good luck and enjoy
