Nvidia Web Driver updates for macOS Sierra (UPDATE 07/11/2018)

1,048 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Many upcoming games will require Sierra or later due to a significant update of metal API, so it depends on what you are doing especially while deciding the value of OS itself.

 

Yeah, of course YMMV, but gaming on macOS? Horrible imho. Much better to use dual boot.

 

Actually, while it's true that the frontend Console app is now pretty horrible, you can still find pretty much any info you want (and I'd say have even more control over it) by using the "log" command, once you understand how to use it properly.

 

I know, but it is much more cumbersome to do that this way. I really don't get why they did not retain this functionality. Frankly, I am more and more concerned where macOS is heading to in general. The lack of quality control, and their efforts to dumb down everything until it is not usable anymore makes me really worry.

Hopefully yes.

 

In the meantime, you can edit NVDAStartupWeb.kext > NVDARequiredOS to match 16D32 build number (or just 16D). It works fine !

oh thx ;)

Did 10.12.3 change anything regarding the iBook / Instruments Issue? Or regarding the various graphical glitches for example after fast user switching? (Also happens with "real" macs using macOS drivers)

Oh I'm sorry ! I just realized you were talking about 10.12.3.

 

I'm now on 10.12.4 beta 16E144f and webdrivers are broken. Even with edited NVDAStartupWeb.kext :(.

What gfx card are you using? (Using phone so can't see)

Fortunately, it's a GTX 650 Ti which doesn't need webdrivers at all ;).

I'll let you know how I go. Just made a backup and installing beta now.

I seem to be having the same? issues. Installed latest Nvidia driver then the 10.12.4 beta 1, applied NVDAStartupWeb.kext patch 16E, fixed audio and patched ADGP.

OSX says that my GFX card is detected and it is, including 4Gb ram apposed to 7mb but my screen is glitchy, no transparency. Typing this post makes the screen flicker with every keystroke.

Too bad. Think my decision to roll back to El Capitan (something I never did before!) was the right one.

 

Sierra = boooo. Apple, get your stuff fixed!

Just installed 10.12.4 Beta (16E144f) and changed NVDAStartupWeb.kext:

<key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
<string>16E144f</string>

It works somehow. But not as it should. There is no hardware acceleration for now. Any Idea what to try to get it work properly?

      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!

      Uno dei tre Requisiti:
      Hack funzionante Mac vero Macchina virtuale Impostazioni Bios per il boot:
      Cercate una voce  del tipo “Sata Mode”e settatela  in AHCI
      Secure Boot: disabilitare o altri sistemi operativi
      CSM: UEFI o LEGACY, oppure a secondo del tipo di installazione
      VT-x / VT-d disable
      *Nota: Secure boot e csm valido solo per bios UEFI
      Materiale Occorrente 
      "OS X (Versione App.Store)”
      USB 8GB  *nota: nel caso di usb superiori dovrà essere partizionata, in modo da avere una partizione su cui "lavoreremo,di questa dimensione

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  selezionate OsxAptioFixDrv-64
                             *  :Se nel vostro sistema è presente una scheda grafica (discreta) della serie 9xx nVidia selezionate OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 al posto di  OsxAptioFixDrv-64 *
      ** OsxAptioFix2Drv :E' necessario per poter impostare CsrActiveConfig= 0x3 **
      ***OsxAptioFix3Drv oppure AptioMemory --> (consigliato) devono essere usati su hardware Skylake o successivi perché permettono alla nvram di lavorare correttamente
           (mi raccomando o uno o l'altro)
      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      Immagine 
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       
       
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack…..

      After a long run, I successfully upgraded High Sierra to mojave 10.14 on an intel 5 series chipset MotherBoard.
       
      MotherBoard: H55ms2
      RAM: 6GB
      GPU1: Saphire AMD RX 460
      GPU2: Nvidia 8400GS
      Storage: 500 GB HDD WD Green.
       
      The requirement:
      1) macOS pre mojave.
      2) macOS mojave installer from Apple store.
      3) Empty partition or USB to upgrade from.
      4) Un-mout all unused dmgs.
      5) GPT/GUID HDD.
       
      HOWOT:
      1) Prepare an empty partition or USB with at least 6 GB.
      2) Format the partition or USB with GUID partition table and HFS+ partition with a name BootablePartition.
      3) Go to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app.
      4) Show Package Contents.
      5) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find BaseSystem.dmg.
      6) Double click on BaseSystem.dmg to mount.
      7) From Disk Utilty click on your partition or the USB that you prepared from number (2).
      8) Click on restore, and chose OS X Base System (BaseSystem.dmg image), then restore it to that partition or USB.
      9) After restoring rename the partition back to BootablePartition.
      9) Run this command:
      rm -rfv /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 10) Create a new folder instead of the broken link and name it Packages, run this command:
      mkdir -v /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 11) Go back to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app and repeat number 2.
      12) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find InstallESD.dmg.
      13) Mount InstallESD.dmg.
      14) Run this command:
      cp -v /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages/ 15) Download the latest clover from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
      16) Install clover on your USB BootablePartition or in a different USB to boot from it. delete all your CLOVER/kext/10.xx and keep others, make sure you don't have any extra kext rather than FakeSMC.kext in the other folder.
      in my case I used FakeSMC.kext and my lan kext RealtekRTL8111.kext.
      17) known Problems in my build: 
      If I updated directly from the apple store the installer in clover will boot with a cross circle sign.
      The FIX is to add this to Clover KextToPatch Thanks to @sunKi http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327488-macos-high-sierra-final-release-is-out-17a365/page-10?do=findComment&comment=2505086 this fix is still working for me in mojave.

      19) SMBIOS mac model that I use is iMac13,2.
      20) Go to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app click on it and chose to install to your macOS High Sierra partition.
      21) Reboot.
      22) From clover chose BootablePartion.
      23) If everything is okie BootablePartition will boot to install macOS mojave, wait wait wait till it finish it might take to 1 hour just wait it will reach the auto reboot soon .
      24) Boot to your old macOS Hight Sierra that will be your mojave partition now and enjoy.
       
      POST Install:
      1) audio: 
      a) Download Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext or build them from source (which I did).
      b) place them in your /EFI/CLOVER/kext/others/
      c) add your audio layout in clover/Devices dict options in my case it's ALC888B which has the layout of 1:
      <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <string>1</string> </dict> d) I had to add beta args to clover/Boot dict, argument (-lilubeta -alcbeta):
       
      <key>Arguments</key> <string>-lilubeta -alcbeta</string> 2) Add number 14 KextsToPath array to your clover as well.

      Anything else is working for me I didn't need any extra clover kext so far, I tried whatevergreen.kext to fire up my rx 460 without the helper card but no success, So I am just sticking with booting from Nvidia as a first GPU from my motherboard configuration then swap the cables after choosing my macOS partion from clover.
       
      After upgrading my HFS+ High Sierra partition converted to APFS, no know problem so far.

      Happy build and more info about the partitioning method with a more detailed instructions in this post that I used to update my Sierra to High Sierra
       
      Special thanks to crazybirdy, sunKi and all of you out there that make this happens.

      I have a Lenovo P52 laptop, Xeon E-2176M hexacore, 32GB mem, SSD, 4K display running VMware Workstation 15, latest darwin.iso.  I freshly installed Mojave in a VM. The VM has 8 GB mem, 2 Proc, 2 Cores, 100GB single file disk.  VMware Tools is installed in the VM.
       
      When I boot, it takes roughly 4-5 seconds for the Apple logo to show up (after the EFI boot) and then roughly 80 seconds to get the Apple desktop.  Is this expected performance ?  I know this is virtualized, but even my 2009 MacBook Pro boots faster than this. I have searched but not found any notes regarding performance.
       
      And related to video performance, if I start LaunchPad, it appears relatively quickly but if I select the "Other" folder which typically contains the Utilities, that may take 5 seconds to show up. I know this is a video performance issue but do not know how to fix this...

      I’ve succesfull installed Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 on my Asus G73sw.
      Specifications:
      - Intel 2630QM-I7 / HM65
      - Nvidia Geforce GTX460m

       So what is needed to install Sierra on a Asus G73sw?
      1)       Install Clover with Mac OS Sierra on a bootable USB
      2)       Copy FakeSMC.kext , USBInjectAll.kext and VoodooPS2Controller to USB\EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\ folder
      3)       Copy HFSPlus-64 , CsmVideoDxe-64 (needed full resolution in Clover) and OsxAptioFixDrv-64 to USB\EFI\CLOVER\drivers64UEFI\ folder
      4)       Install Mac OS Sierra
       
      After the installation you reach the desktop.

      FIRST install Clover with the following settings:
                      - Installation for UEFI motherboards
                      - Install Clover in the ESP
                      - Drivers64UEFI -> OsxAptioFixDrv-64
                      - Drivers64UEFI -> CsmVideoDxe-64
                      - Install RC scripts on targetvolume
                      - Install Clover preference panel
       
      Copy HFSPlus-64 to EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ folder
       
      After that, install the following kexts with your favorite kext installer:

                      - FakeSMC.kext                    ->            Always needed
                      - VoodooPS2Controller          ->            Needed to use your keyboard
                      - USBInjectAll                      ->            Needed to use USB2.0 ports
                      - ACPIBatteryManager          ->            Shows batterystatus
                      - AsusNBFnKeys                  ->            Needed to use FN keys
                      - AppleALC + Lilu                ->            Needed to get audio working
                      - RealtekRTL8111               ->            Needed to get LAN working (can’t test, LAN card defect)
       
      As last, copy the DSDT (many thanks to MaLd0n for creating the DSDT file) file to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/
       
      Reboot and see what is working:
       
      -          Nvidia Geforce GTX460m         ->            Config.plist
      -          Wifi                                       ->            DSDT
      -          Audio                                    ->            DSDT + AppleALC + Lilu
      -          USB2.0                                  ->            USBInjectall
      -          Batterypercentage                  ->            DSDT
      -          Asus FN keys                         ->            AsusNBFnKeys
       
      And what is not working:
       
      -          USB3.0 (Fresco Logic xHCI(USB3))
      -          Keyboard backlight
      -          Brightness FN key
      -          Cardreader
      -          Bluetooth
       
      As last, I’m unable to generate a SSDT with ssdtPRGen.sh from Piker-Alpha. I’ve got the following error (see attached picture):
       
      The MacBookPro10,1 SMBios has an board-ID that is not compatible with my Sandy Bridge laptop. So I tried a few things:
      -          Change the SMBios to MacBookPro8,2
                 Reboot -> Black screen
      -          Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and add the below to KextToPatch
                 com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
                 BA050000 00
                 BA000000 00
                 Prevent AGDP from loading
                 Reboot -> Apple bar won’t load
      -         Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and changed productname to iMac13,2
                Reboot -> Apple bar load but get a blackscreen
      -         Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and changed productname to iMac13,2 and add the below to KextToPatch
                 com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
                 BA050000 00
                 BA000000 00
                 Prevent AGDP from loading
                Reboot -> laptop boots good
       
      With the MacBookPro8,2 SMBIOS and the changed productname I’m still unable to generate an SSDT.
       
      So, can someone help me to:
       
      -          Generate a correct SSDT
      -          Get USB3.0 working
      -          Get Keyboard backlight working
      -          Get Brightness FN key working
      -          Get Cardreader working
      -          Get Bluetooth working
