why we need USBInjectAll.kext? there any other proper way for USB?

What version of SMBIOS been used?

I use iMac 17,1 because it's close to my hardware (cpu).

USBInjectAll is to inject as many USB ports as possible. No its not needed but helps determine what ports you need for when you create your own SSDT for USB.

hi,

 

what do you mean by:

<key>ConfigMap</key>

<dict>

Below that ^ you will see a bunch of lines with
<key>Mac-00BE6ED71E35EB86</key>

 <string>none</string>

 

should i change only the Config1, Config2 to none by only this key Mac-00BE6ED71E35EB86? or also by other keys?

In your config.plist in your smbios section you will see YOUR board ID like Mac-B809C3757DA9BB8D

 

                            ^> Right click > show package contents                  ^> Right click > show package contents

And inside AppleGraphicsControl.kext > Contents > Plugins > AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext > Contents > Info.plist > IOKitPersonalities > AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy > ConfigMap > You can either find YOUR corresponding board ID and change the value to none or you can change them all to be on the safe side, yes some will already say none, of course you do not need to change them.

 

I hope this helps.

Nice Guide
Just a few thoughts.
 
1. Clover configurator is better not to use. Never. Under any circumstances.
2. The best editor for plist-files is PlistEdit Pro
3. All items must be numbered, in order to it was possible to navigate through Guide.

4. USB-volume must be pre-prepared and it should be clearly specified.

5. VoodooHDA - not the best method for the sound and not the easiest. I successfully use AppleALC method.

this is optional for certain cases right?

now if your current version of macOS isnt supported by the version of web drivers shown, you can fix this by clicking the button that says NVDAStartupWeb.kext patch and in the fake os build box enter 16B or what ever the first three characters of your build are and either patch immediately or tick the box for patch after installation

 

but, when i do this it seems te work, but only when connected to a DP port. dvi not working.

Yes I agree. As stated is my first guide and I will be updating soon when I get some time.

I have also switched to applealc so my guide does need to be updated.

I personally have never had an issue with using clover configurator, but each to his own. Usually I create my configuration with cc then make edits with xcode or plistedit pro.

 

I appreciate the input and will make some adjustments.

Hi,

 

why shouldn't us CLoverConfigurator?

and how to use AppleALC method?

>why shouldn't us CLoverConfigurator?

Because it changes the config.plist keys (change, add, delete) without user permission and information.

 

>and how to use AppleALC method?

1. Download latest release https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC/releases

2. Install kext to /S/L/E with kext utility or KextWizard

3. Set FixHDA_8000 fix to Yes in config.plist

4. Reboot

 

Note: must be present in the system original kext AppleHDA

Do i need to change (if yes where? in config.plist?) memory configuration?

on About mac it's listed as 4x8GB and in clover configurator also. but i have 2x16GB installed.

 

Is this a problem?

 

And can i add 2 extra 16GB modules in the future? or you i have to configure something?

arjanv, you can freely remove or add memory, no adjustment is required.

What do you see in About.. about memory - cosmetic case, no need edit config.plist.

hi, where are all the nice pictures?

 

nvidia is working now, but wondering what this does or if it's nesasary?

 

After the drivers are installed you will be prompted to reboot.....DO NOT! instead run this command in terminal  sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist

and scroll down until you find

 

<key>ConfigMap</key>

<dict>

Below that ^ you will see a bunch of lines with <key>Mac-00BE6ED71E35EB86</key>

                                                                            <string>none</string>

Find the strings that say Config1 or Config2 and change them to say none, save the file and exit.

You do not need to change all the strings you can just find the one that matches your "<key>" but its just as easy to change them all.

What it does is stop the black screen on startup.

Feel free to do a fresh install and try without that step.

 

Pictures will be returning once the guide is re written.

Sleep isn't working on mine but I don't use sleep. Sleep won't work on mine because I have my liquid cooler plugged in.

In my config.plist I have selected fix shutdown and that works for me.

As SavageAUS pointed out, with clover configurator add the following fix under ACPI: FixShutdown

 

or add the following flags

 

<key>Fixes</key>

<dict>
<key>FixShutdown_0004</key>
<true/>
</dict>
