I fixed!, somehow the system turned the brightness of the built-in display to 0% (it was working injecting graphics) , I tried to reinstall the kext without success , the problem is that brightness controls (Keyboard or with system preferences) do not work in my hackintosh so I had to install this and change the brightness to 1 using the terminal.

@fpdesigner: it's about the 12,5 inches one, this topic is about the thirteen. However I remember having seen this article translated in English (search for 12,5 inches xiaomi hackintosh with trackpad... you should be able to find it (maybe passing through one forum). [EDIT]; Well, I can't find it anymore...strange

 

@Luizsoft: You should not care about the MAC_OS_X folder... (As long as I can remember); if you are not a lot familiar with hackintosh you should read the guide and all this topic (yeah..long but some of your problems might have already a solution here) carefully (that's one is often problematic ^^). Hoping you already have done your hackintosh without problems (since the time ^^). I think with summer and all.. messages took some times to be answered. ; )

My Xiaomi Air 13 worked for some days with Sierra, but suddenly it stopped working.

When booting the Apple logo fades away. Anyone a solution?

BTW: When booting with fake Intel ID it's booting.

bios A07 is outhere already. The xiaomi I bought came with this bios installed. 


 


Due this (I guess), neither brightness settings nor HDMI are working. 


 


Please, upload the files with DSDT files updated!


 


Thanks! You are doing an amazing job. This is an amazing hackintosh anyway

Hi everyone,

 

This will be my first hackintosh and so I am still very new to everything.

 

Please can someone help me by providing some more detail in the instructions as I still haven't been able to create a bootable USB yet. I have read through the whole forum and can't find much more detail about how to get started.

 

Thank you all for your help in advance.

You need another MacOS system from which u run the clover installer. After that you'll just have to copy the filepack's content to the EFI folder on the usb drive. Search Clover usb installation on google for further instructions.

Thank's for your reply.

 

I have made some progress but now when I try to install os x I get a no entry sign and then 10 seconds later my xiaomi turns off.

 

I am using a MacBook Pro 13,1 running 10.12.6 and am using the 10.12.6 installer, but I was wondering does it have to be 10.12.2 or am I ok to use 10.12.6?

Hi Chrisrorr, I've got a bit further by changing the product name in SMBIOS (in the clover options) from MacBookPro13,1 to iMac14,2 but when I get into the installer it doesn't see the internal SSD.

 

edit: I'm not really sure what I'm doing, just trying to figure it out, do you know what to do with the DisplayProductID-1447 file?

NVMe is not supported. There is a method to get it working, but I would recommend you adding a Sata SSD in the second slot.

It should boot with MacbookPro13,1

Dit you copy all files, and edited serial number?

Thank's for your reply.

Make a bootable USB using another hackintosh or mac.

 

1. I made my USB using (censored) (not supported on Insanelymac, but you can also use terminal and after that Clover).

2. copy and pase files to the EFI folder.

3. Edit SMBIOS

4. Change bios settings laptop. To disable Secure boot you need to add a password, and use UEFI boot.

5. Put in USB

6. Start up laptop

7. In clover change to a Fake ID

8. boot installation

9. Install OS x

10. Install kexts.

Hi goodmoring1234,

 

I have followed your steps but I still get the prohibition sign. When using verbose it says "This version of Mac os x is not supported on this platform. Then it says reason "Mac-" which I can see is my board ID in the SMBIOS

 

I have a few thoughts about why this might be:

I am using 10.12.6 but the OP used 10.12.2

My Config.plst / SMBIOS is wrong. I have attached an image and would be grateful if you could verify it's correct.

I've also noticed that on the Graphics Injector page my platform ID is 1916000 and yet the OP's is 1916002

 

 

Many thanks for your help :)

I'm currently on my phone, so I can't check your config.plist file, but I'm currently also using 10.12.6 on my Mi air 13.

Did you add the attached config.plist file to your EFI folder?

Then you only need to make sure there is a fake serial number which you can shake in Clover configurator.

UPDATE: I have now managed to install OS X.

 

The fix came from AlbertAlpha on page 9 of the forum. There was no Board ID in my config.plist so I used clover configurator to change board id to Mac-473D31EABEB93F9B.

 

I may make a full video on installation as i believe the installation process is not to difficult if you know all the steps.

I am having trouble installing the  AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext.

 

​I have followed the instructions installing the temporary kext first with a fake ID using EasyKext Pro , rebooting then installing the kext without a fake ID. However, I still get UI stutters and lags.

 

Furthermore, when I type sudo kextcache -I / in terminal I get:

AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext is not valid; omitting.

 

Any ideas?

I am thinking of installing OS X 10.12.3

I have found a link for this at "Removed"
Which was referred to me by "Removed"

My question is does anyone know of anyway to check the download is safe/legit or does anyone have another download link they are willing to share?

Hi all,

I successfully installed sierra with the guide and filepack 2.0. Updated to 10.12.6 and got most things working.
Still not working for me is backlight dimming (i did install the intelbacklight kext and enabled AddPNLF_10000000, still nothing) and wakeup from sleep(screen stays black). Also, i use a rt8192eu usb wifi stick, which doesn't seem to support wpa2-enterprise connections, though i'm not sure if thats a sierra thing.
Any Pointers on how to fix any of this?

my config.plist:
https://pastebin.com/VGmzF01w

I don't think the intel backlight kext works with the newer versions of sierra. One solution to gain some control over brightness is to remove the intel backlight kext, however, you still don't get the same degree of control over brightness as you would in windows. But it's better than nothing!

Hi, just want to say thanks Goodmoring1234, got a sata ssd to install it on.

also to chrisrorr for the board id tip, I had some graphical glitches but I updated sierra with the app store and it fixed them.

 

It's running pretty well now :)

      Hi,
       
      i just let my sierra installation on a skylake xiaomi air laptop update. after the obligatory reboot i was greeted with a kernel panic regarding com.apple.iokit.IOAHCIBlockStorage. Now booting into osx doesnt work anymore
       
      Anyone else run into this? Is there a way to make clover save the boot log on this or do you guys salvage the logs from the hfs volume osx resides on?

      Gizmochina say, that china's headliner smartphone company goes deeper, and want to be Chinese Apple. They started to assemble  notebooks, that look like made by apple, but with slightly cheaper price and on steroids:
       
      Operating System: Linux Processor: CPU series Intel Core i7 4-generation family RAM: 8GB Screen size: 15.6-inches Screen Resolution: 1920×1080 Screen technology: LED backlight Graphics chip: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M Memory capacity: 2GB Price: 2999 Yuan ($466) And it looks like this:
       
       
      They start in april. As for me, I'm waiting for this to try, and install there Hackintosh. If it would be possible with Ozmosis, then it would be my daily driver laptop.
