Try using the board ID of MacBookPro13,1/14,1, or patch /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/BiometricKit.framework/Versions/A/BiometricKit (replace "board-id" with "board-ix", then sudo codesign -f -s - /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/BiometricKit.framework/Versions/Current/BiometricKit). Note that the latter requires SIP to be disabled; it should be possible to write a Lilu plugin to do this (will work on it sooner or later).

 

Edit: Lilu plugin is available here: https://github.com/al3xtjames/NoTouchID

@wmchris: Your new addition, XCPM works pretty good. Increased my battery runtime by an hour in an first, inital test. Thanks for keeping on improving this 'git pull' and forget repo

I did not give you permission to upload a compiled version of the native branch. Kindly remove it. I said multiple times that it was not for public use and the source code is online strictly for development purposes.

 

I will take down the source code for the native branch if people continue to abuse this.

SSDT-I2CX.aml where do I download that file

Guys, anyone had issued updating to 10.13.4? I downloaded it from app store and mounted nicely. After reboot I get kernel panic when loading. Problem is the screen is not readable (like glitched) so I'm no sure where I the problem. I tried replacing clover files with those from the github but no luck.

I've been experiencing something odd, the laptop reboots every time it comes back from sleep, when it's not plugged to the power source. 
Is anyone experiencing (or had experienced) this reboot issue on 10.13.4? Thanks!

Done, already removed it from the attachment. Sorry if it caused any troubles, wasn't my intention. However, I do have to point out that you actually gave permission to your software distribution when you released it under GNU GPL3, as per section 6.d. Maybe you want to revise the license?

Hi, mate, sorry to trouble you. I just saw your post on the forum about I2C trackpad. I also have XPS 15, thanks for your great work about the native gestures because I also want to improve the touchpad. But when I want to download the zip file, I found it already deleted. So can you send me a copy one for individual use via message?  And I also messaged u already. Thank you very much. Best regards.

update your installation with the updated files from the git repository and everything is fine

redo the anti hibernation script from post install, redo kext cache and do a normal shutdown. then boot up again. if this didnt help - redo. most of the time this fixes it.

you can compile the code by yourself, but the product owner doesnt allow prebuilt binaries for anyone. also these are so unstable, that theyre not even suggested for a tryout.

I've tried it, but it didn't help. Perhaps it's the BIOS I'm using? 1.5.1 (I read that the 1.6.1 had some issues, but I don't remember if 1.5.1 is OK), I've tried to search the forum, but search is not working for me. Thanks for your help.

Yep, I got it. Thanks for your reply. But I think it should be OK just based on individual use not abused spread. As for the unstable result, I think it is worth a try.

sorry but it doesnt matter what you think of what should be okay - the copyright owner disallowed it himself. so please accept it. And trust me - i tried the code - its not worth the time. if you're unable to compile it, then youre also unable to debug it.

if it worked before, then i can only suggest doing it multiple times. especially the shutdown part. i had this issue at least 5 times - i didnt debug it because a clean shutdown works most of the time.

FYI: I've installed the last Security Update 2018-001 through the App Store and everything worked smoothly, no issues so far.

I must be doing something wrong, after I got the HDMI Out to work, now HDMI audio is also not working. I am on 10.13.2, I followed the steps carefully from the installation. Any ideas as to what might be the reason of the HDMI Audio issues not working?

Sometimes I have the problem that the touchpad won't work after resume, anybody else the same problem? The touchscreen remains working, so I can still use the system, but for the touchpad I need to reboot.

I'm on 10.14. Works with the latest clover 4515 and new apfs. Unfortunately for some of us 4k users, we gotta wait for Coredisplayfixup.kext to update for graphics to work. I also noticed sound wasn't working.

I have a second display connected to my laptop and after updating to 10.13.5, I had some issues when the laptop woke up from sleep: the laptop display was black and sometimes it was blinking.

 

I'm not sure if it was a random issue, but I've decided to apply the new CoreDisplay patcher for 10.13.5 and it seems to be working now. Again, it might have been a random issue, but I think it doesn't hurt to run the updated CoreDisplay patcher.

 

In my case I've replaced the BuildMachineOSBuild key value, from 17E199 (10.13.4) to 17F77 (10.13.5) in the Info.plist file (CoreDisplayFixup.kext).

I just wished to thank you all on good work you put in this project. I learned quite a bit reading through the topic (although I don't understand all the stuff)

 

I have been running Hackintosh on XPS 15 9550 with i7 6700HQ with UHD display. Somewhere before High Sierra I switched to windows and wiped my whole laptop and in the process upgraded to latest bios / tb3 / tpm firmwares and all the stuff from Dell website.  Well my windows journey wasn't that cool and I wanted back in 

I downloaded the newest installer on my old MBPRO, made usb install, used the guide, calculated the slice for installer, installed the system and I booted into fresh 10.13.5 environment.

 

After installing the kexts and rebuilding the caches, my "prelinkedkernel" file increased in size which is quite normal, but after that I couldn't boot anymore. Same old "couldn't allocate runtime area ..." error. 

 

 

I tried with "OsxAptioFix3Drv-64", "OsxAptioFix2Drv-64", "AllocFix with OsxAptioFixDrv" and in the end "AptioMemoryFix". 

 

I compiled the AptioMemoryFix with the support for "aptiodump" option in order for it to dump memory. 

 

Now I understand that each of these machines could have different memmap, but I tried turning off stuff like TPM and Thunderbolt support in bios (Touch screen, sdcard reader and vt-d are long disabled) but I'm not getting any bigger region of free memory. 

 

I'll attach memmap fro uefi shell output and the picture of aptiodump (I don't know how to capture that in text)  

I can boot in safe mode, and if I erase prelinkedkernel, it boots, but the problem are patches which are counting on cached kexts  

 

I was hopping if some you running similar configs could shed some light or maybe options I have (I've seen wmchris mentioned kernel sliming down somewhere, but I don't know how to preform such a task) 

memmap.txt

IMG_3030.JPG

 

UPDATE: I managed to boot with somewhat not recommended free2000 driver, it's sad but that is the only way I can boot with prelinked kernel :(

 

Can some of you please share your memmap output along with bios version you are using? I'm curious about why my machine is special, and I'd like to enjoy stable driver with native nvram support :)

      Hello everyone,
       
      I was able to install macOS Sierra 10.12.6 a few months ago successfully with working audio, internet, etc.
       
      But now I want to upgrade to High Sierra and am not sure whether or not it will be compatible with my system. (Tried to do it using a High Sierra USB. Wouldn't boot into installer, showed "+++++++++++++" or something.)
       
      My specs are:
      Dell Optiplex 3010
      Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz (HD2500 Integrated Graphics)
      4GB of RAM
      NVIDIA Quadro FX1800 (Want to use this GPU, have an extra Radeon HD7470 somewhere that I can also use in this if needed)
      Conexant CX20641 Audio
      Realtek RTL8111E Ethernet
       
      So, can I upgrade to High Sierra? Please let me know.
       
      EDIT: I kept getting this error: (See attached image)
       
      Thanks

      Hi everyone,
      This is my first post here so I hope I respect all the rules of this holy land ! (Please don't slay the noob !)
      I need your wisdom to give me advice for the new money burning hackintosh I'm building. I already have one, but I never managed to get it stabble enough and it gave me many headaches. Also it wasn't nearly powerfull enough for a tue professional use. The new one will serve me for my work as a video and sound editor but also, cause work's not everything, to dual boot and game while thinking of slaying some random and disrespectfull diretor !
      As I'm not much of a hardcore geek, the idea is to have a stable build that will last for quite a while, and be open for future adjustments or upgrades. I wish it to be as silent as possible and I really do not care about RGB stuff.
      I have searched a lot and seen many different builds but none who satisfid all my criteria.
      But I really want to find all the best parts possible and so I come for your help.
       
      For now, here are the parts I've selected :
      CPU : Intel I9 7900X 3.3GHz
      CPU Cooling System : Noctua NH-U12S
      MOBO : Gigabyte GA-X299 AORUS Gaming 7 Pro or Asus Prime X299-DELUXE
      RAM : SKILL F4–3200 mémoire 32gtzr (I'll add 32 more as soon as I'll have the money)
      System Drive High Sierra : Samsung 970 Pro NVMe SSD 512 Go
      System Drive Windows 10 : SSD Crucial 250go (Not for too long though !)
      PSUs : Corsair HX1200i 80 PLUS Platinum, 1200 Watt
       
      I haven't figure out the GPU nor the case yet... So please tell me what you thing cause there are so many models out there... I was thinking maybe a MSI GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X or the Radeon™ Pro WX 7100 Graphics which looks amazing for editing but not so great for hackintosh...
       
      Thanks a lot for your time and you help !
       
      Raph.
