If you can describe step-by-step how to reproduce your issues with Final Cut Pro (never used it before, so really detailed instructions will be appreciated) - i can try on my laptop. I have a little bit different setup than on wmchris repo - so it may be interesting to check if it will also crash.

Hi all. Just wanted to let you all know my findings.

 

I have the 9550 xps 15.

16gb ram, 512gb Toshiba xg4, 4k LCD, killer 1535 WiFi

 

BIOS 1.2.25 never booted with osxaptiofix2-64. Slide parameter of 168 was not correct for me. Even when I worked out a slide for my memmap it would then give me kernel cache problem. I had to use osxaptiofix-free2000 with slide of 97. This allowed me to install.

 

So after installation of sierra 10.12.5. It still wouldn't boot with osxaptiofix2-64. I get the kernel cache problem and couldn't allocate 13 pages. I didn't want to use free2000 because tutorial says its not stable. So I googled around and saw that darkhandz was using osxaptiofix-64. Version 1 and the trick he does is not even set the slide parameter at all. This works fine for me.

 

I forgot which audio kext I was using but I wanted to use the one knnspeed suggested for 9560.

 

I'm using the WiFi tp link wn725n v2 USB 11n adapter. It works fine and acts like a Ethernet adapter. This was using the latest to link beta drivers.

 

Thanks for the great tutorial.

Hello,

Just to let anyone having problems with their audio know, @KNNSpeed just released a new solution for it on the XPS15 9560 thread. I test it on my XPS15 9550 and it is fully compatible (Both the 9560 and 9550 share the same codec), it replaces the CodecCommander kext and the ALCPlugFix, with his VerbStub kext, which solve all sound related problems our machines were facing (Sleep and Line-in for me). If anyone else want to test link is here:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/324366-dell-xps-15-9560-4k-touch-1tb-ssd-32gb-ram-100-adobergb​/page-6#entry2458025

 

P.S: His solution works alongside AppleALC and Lilu, and, although, his post says it needs a modded version of it, @vit9696 already merged his changed on the official AppleALC repo, so you can grab the latest version from there: (https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC), you will need to compiled it thought.

Can you post a idiot's guide on how to switch from wmchris config to this?

Hello everyone, I've been scanning through all 30something pages of this thread trying to find an answer to my problem, but with no Success. So here I am.

 

I'm having a strange problem that doesn't seem like it's been addressed before. I've followed each step to a T, but the problem persists. I can't change my brightness with the brightness up/down keys. If I attempt to, the entire machine hard locks with no mouse movement and an abrupt stop to the audio. If I plug/unplug the machine, the same thing occurs. However, in System Preferences -> Display I have a brightness slider that works as intended; as well as the screen dims when the machine stays idle for too long with an immediate brightening when the mouse moves or a key is pressed.

 

I've tried changing everything and anything to correct this, even going so far as Starting back at step 1 and creating a new installer with other tools instead of Pandoras Box as well as many different versions of clover and DSDT combinations. Have any of you encountered such a bug?

 

 

 

Fixed! The backlight injector needed to be in the EFI environment, not just in /L/E.

Hey guys,

 

not sure, if someone else asked this before (thread is going bigger & bigger -> perfect), but I recognized the following "problem":

 

I use the files from wmchris's repo (so thankful !!!! Thanks!!! ), but couldn't get into the system (using 1.2.25 Bios). So I decided to use the OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi from another repo (GitHub - corenel/XPS9550-OSX: This repository contains my own files ...) and it worked right away. Strange :D I patched my backlight (1080p model) for better stepping, anything else is as wmchris suggest it to be in his guide. 

 

When I stream, especially from Eurosport or dailymotion, the system stuck every 4-6 sec, but audio still works perfectly, only video output is lagging (Mouse, too). Other streams work just great, couldn't figure out the reason. If I use Opera instead of Safari, there is no problem. I just want it to be solved having the "real Mac feeling" as good as possible and perhaps, anyone else experiences the same problem..

 

On my Hackintosh-Desktop, same OS (10.12.5), Safari can play it without any lag

 

 

Anyone an idea, what the cause could be?

I have now edited the SSDT-WIFI_Syspref.aml that it matches to ARPT when this fixes the WiFi Issues after. Sleep. Please test if it works correctly for you. 

 

I've added it, no problem btw I still have the slow speed issue (40mbps instead of 120mbps)...

I can also reproduce this problem. I did an iPerf Test on my local network before and after Sleep. Before Sleep the highest value was 141 Mbit/s and after Sleep I got only around 20 Mbit/s

I have now disabled in Syspref -> Energy the Option that it wakes when there is an WiFi Traffic detected. I only have this Option in german language then I think it is not properly translated by me but I think you know what I mean.

 

That is my iPerf Result before Sleep

Hi! Can you guys help me?

Today I rebooted my laptop and did not want to load the OS. Reinstalled it, can boot but I faced with this:

LaunchHelper and SocialPushAgent always quit unexpectedly.

I found that if I run this command, the Push Agent will not start again but it is not a solution bcos I want to use it.

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.SocialPushAgent.plist

Is there any solution for my situation? I kepp digging the whole net because it is so annoying

I rather play it safe and re-plug the headphone any time I want sound :P.

I updated to 10.12.6 and configs from your repository at the same time and now every time I plugin the external monitor the machine crash. I already to the AppleGraphicsPolicy trick. How to troubleshoot the problem?

It just reboot immediately to the Clover booting screen. I got it working now by deleting all the CLOVER folder and start over. Maybe I did something wrong when updating.

Turn out I have this kext enableds the whole time: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/tree/master/10.12/Post-Install/AD-Kexts/UHD-Kexts. I did not see any kernel panic so I might try it this weekend.

More update, now my machine can't wake up after sleep anymore. The keyboard is lit up but the monitor displays nothing. Not sure if related but if I force reboot by pressing the power button, sometimes it hangs for few seconds at gIOScreenLockState something message.

I can't boot anymore after the 10.12.6 update. As far as I can see everything is fine, but it won't boot. You can see the log file in the attached picture. I hope links are fine, here is a link to the picture because the uploaded one on the site is hardly readable. http://imgur.com/a/nuMfV

I have a little bit different setup than on wmchris repo - so it may be interesting to check if it will also crash.

 

Gladly - and for now I still strongly assume it's something with my iGPU:

 

1. Use the latest FCP X - it's 10.3.4 as of this writing.  Start a project on your local SSD or USB disk, it doesn't matter

2. Import any 2k or 4k content - I can provide some 4k mavic pro drone footage I shot

3. Add any effect, because this triggers GPU usage: Like loading of LUT plugin to load in LUTs, for example mLUT OR add any other effects

4. If using a LUT plugin, load any LUT through the plugin and apply it to the 8bit footage you are editing, for example this one

5. Work for a while in FCP X - export and work

6. At a random moment it'll reboot to the Dell logo with reset of brightness - no crash log in console

 

Why do I assume it's the iGPU? I do get artifacts when playing Command & Conquer 3 with FullHD resolution, something that looks like an overclocked GPU or when it's getting too hot. I cannot get temp readings of the iGPU itself, but the temps of the CPU die are fine, during gaming and rendering. I ran a bunch of OpenCL, metal and GPU benchmarks without any problem both in Windows and MacOS

 

I checked the VRAM usage with iStat Menu and it reaches 100% when rendering FCPX content with effects applied. I also did an extensive RAM check and it passed. The hardware seems fine!

 

EDIT:

  1. Found out any effect can trigger the crash, edited the text accordingly
  2. Hardware diagnosis could not find any hardware error

You probably need IntelGraphicsFixup.kext.

there were some Intel graphics changes on the recently sierra updates.

Just add this two kexts to your /kext/Other clover folder:

https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu/releases/download/1.1.5/1.1.5.RELEASE.zip

https://sourceforge.net/projects/intelgraphicsfixup/files/Release/IntelGraphicsFixup_1.1.5.kext.zip/download

 

And see if this solve the boot problem.

Due you are talking about iGPU I have a question:

There is no way to make the nvidia 960m work on the latest update, isn't it?

Currently no, our laptop use Optimus, and there is no built-in support for it on macOS, we would need something like FakeSMC.kext, but for the Optimus, which is reasonably hard to make, and probably a custom driver to enable it, and as far as I know no one is working on this.

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Pro and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware

      PREAMBLE - BEFORE YOU START 
       
      Here detailed, is all the  steps towards building a successful and stable Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh, if you are a first time Hackintosher, this guide will have you quickly up and running with the Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh. To rule out potential problems from the go,
      only have the disc that you plan to install macOS Mojave connected to the Aorus Pro, disconnect any other Windows / Linux or data drives, external drives from your Aorus Pro. Windows / Linux and data drives can be connected after successful installation of macOS Mojave
      If you have more than 16 GB of memory, then install macOS Mojave with just 16GB or RAM installed, you can later add any additional memory. Install memory modules in slots DDR4_A1  and DDR4_B1.
       
      This build has a recommended Wi-Fi combo PCI-e card installed in slot PCIEX1_3 with its 9 pin USB cable attached to motherboard header F_USB2.  ( ensure WiFi card is seated properly in PCIe slot and cable is firmly attached to WiFi card and motherboard header F_USB2 ) 
       
      If using the Corsair H100i v2 AIO cooler with USB cable connected to motherboard header F_USB1, you will need to enable hot-patch ( explained in guide ) in config.plist for working sleep, wake from sleep will only work by pressing Power Button.
       
      Install macOS Mojave on its own physical drive, so do not try and install macOS Mojave onto a free partition on a disc that contains Windows.
      Remove any Thunderbolt cards, Thunderbolt card can be reinserted after installation.  Double check your BIOS settings are the same as this guide. 
       
       
       
      Following are unsupported / problematic
       
      • Intel Optane ( if you have this, remove it before installation of macOS Mojave )
       
      • Samsung EVO Plus drives ( ensure you update Plus drive to latest firmware to avoid problems )
       
      • XFX Radeon RX 580
       
      • NVIDIA GTX / RTX not supported in macOS Mojave
       
       
       
      Q - WILL THIS GUIDE WORK WITH MY NON AORUS Z390 PRO MOTHERBOARD ?
      A - Possibly, though you may have to create your own USBPorts fix. 
       
      Q - I notice you have the Aorus Pro Z390 version, will this guide work with Aorus Pro Z390 WiFi version ?
      A - Possibly, but onboard Intel / Intel CNVi WIFII /Bluetooth will not work with macOS and you will have to disable HS14 for Bluetooth to function properly. 
       
      Q - Can I use my AMD Vega Card ?
      A - Yes, AMD Vega card's  will work with this guide, but If you plan to use a Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 then please read @AudioGod ==>post  regarding the Sapphire Pulse 56.

      PART 5 – CUSTOMIZE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER FOR AORUS Z390 PRO
       
      Replace Clover EFI folder with PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.zip   ( Video below ) 
       
      • Install ESP Mounter Pro v1.9
      • Using ESP Mounter Pro, Mount ESP on disk2s1 ( Your disk name may be different )
       

       

       
       
       
      • Open mounted EFI partition found on desktop
      • Copy all the contents from Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder
      • Replace USB EFI folder with all the contents inside the Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder.
       
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 6 – INSTALL MAC OS MOJAVE ON INTERNAL DRIVE
       
      INSTALL NOTE
       
      ENSURE BIOS: Above 4G Decoding is set to Disabled 
      if Above 4G decoding is set to enabled then macOS Mojave install will freeze at 2 mins remaining and will not shut down properly!!!!
       
      Please be patient during install, so when install gets to 2 or 3 mins remaining then it may take extra time. Be ready to boot from UEFI USB installer by pressing F12 when install initiates restarts. 

      • INSERT USB INSTALLER INTO THE USB 2.0 PORT  
       
       
       Here is a walkthrough of the full process using the macOS Mojave USB Installer on the Aorus Z390 Pro. 
       
       
       
       
      • Power on PC and press F12• Choose bootable USB drive from boot menu.
       
       
       
      • Install macOS Mojave to internal solid state or hard drive.
       
       
       
      When system returns to the Clover boot menu choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      At next restart, press F12 and boot from external UEFI USB device and choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      Proceed with macOS Mojave install
       
       
      macOS Mojave is now installed, but it can only boot at this moment thanks to FakeSMC and Clover on the Mojave USB flash drive installer.
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 7 – MAKE AORUS Z390 PRO INTERNAL DRIVE BOOTABLE
       
      Make internal drive bootable ( Video below )
       
      So far, the Aorus Pro can only boot the internal system drive with the aid of the Mojave USB Installer.
      To boot from the internal system drive without the installer: 
       
      Download and install Clover with RC Scripts on target volume.  
      Copy the EFI folder from inside Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.zip  folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition.         
       

       
       
       
      • Remove USB Mojave installer and shut down and restart.
       
      Aorus Hackintosh should now be able to boot to macOS Mojave, Done, well almost ! 
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 8 – ENABLE IMESSAGES & FACETIME 
       
       
      // UPDATE 21st MAY 2019
       
      Possibly Clover Configurator now automatically populates correct values for working iMessages when you select an SMBIOS.  
       
       

       
       
      After selecting SMBIOS, example iMac19,1 for Aorus Pro with RX580 ( image above ) then go to Apple and ensure you have the "serial number is not valid " message. Done!
       
      If you still have problems connecting to iMessage, test and ensure that AirDrop is working, then follow instructions inside spoiler. 

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 9 – ENABLE TRIM for Solid State Flash Drives
       
      Open Terminal and enter the following command:
      sudo trimforce enable

      Hello Friends, how are ya?

      Could you help me with a problem?

      I followed some guides like: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic ... coffeelake -dsdt /

      and the installation of high Sierra 10.13.6 (17G8030) and nvidia webdrivers (correspondent to OS version) went smoothly, the problem starts when I try to boot the GPU.

      Hardware:
      MOBO: Aorus B360M gaming 3 (rev.1)
      CPU: i5 8400
      GPU: GTX 1060 OC Galax redblack

      BIOS:
      Fast boot - disabled
      windows 8/10 features - other os
      lan pxe - disabled
      storage boot option - UEFI
      other pci devices - UEFI
       
      Initial display output - PCie 1 slot
      Intel's Platform Trust Technology (PTT) - disabled
      sata mode selection - AHCI
      XHCI hand off - enabled
      VT-d - disabled
      internal graphics - auto


      The problem is:
      I can log into the system normally without using my nvidia GPU but when I boot the system with the flags for webdrivers to work I fall into the login screen but it keeps flashing, I can see the mouse and I can move it but the screen flashes and the following error appears when the screen goes "black": IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0. I searched for this error on the internet and tried to solve but to no avail so far.

      If someone can help me I would be extremely grateful! thanks in advance!
