I just installed. Everything works fine. I'll test final cut pro, premiere pro with 4k footage and get back with you on performance.
For now moves like a performant Mac book pro.
I installed Catalina first but I could not make the Intel UHD 620 Graphics get proper QE/CI.
Mojave is just fine. I want to use this system for quick video editing on the go.
Geekbench in my signature.
If you need any files or have any questions pls ask.
I have almost succesfully converted from Clover to OpenCore 0.5.4 following this Vanilla Guide by khronokernel
Just an issue with the ethernet intelmausiethernet.kext injecting...
SOLVED - the sample plist default kernel entry for Ethernet BOOLEAN is NO. I changed to the kext name correctly, but oversaw to make the simple change to YES!
ASUS Rog Maximus X Code Bios v2203 (uses Intel® I219V)
i7 8700k w/ AMD RX 580 Sapphire Nitro+ SE
The latest kext is in my EFI/OC/Kexts folder with the other latest kexts that have loaded properly. It seems to be entered correctly in the config.plist like the other latest kexts. But the service is inactive and there is no Ethernet connection. Airport works fine.
I ran kextstat in terminal and could confirm that the kext was not loaded. Nor did en0 report anything with IoRegistryExplorer
The only way I was able to get ethernet to work was by manually installing the kext into the L/E/ folder via ##### and after reboot.
I can confirm ethernet is now working and reports as loaded with kextstat, and the device populates in IoRegistryExplorer.
I know ##### sn't the proper way to install kexts so reaching out for some advice if I've done anything wrong with my config.plist
Possibly an issue with OC version 0.5.4? I know everything is still BETA.
Attached is my EFI folder with serial removed
Hi everyone !
I have a laptop thinkpad x1 yoga 2018 , the sound device is realtek alc285.
My friend and I spend numerous time on patching its layout-id , however either the headphone jack or laptop audio recording have noises.
Any help is appreciated , thank you !!!
If you have a working Brightness Slider and you might be using Brightness slider or manual hotkeys to control brightness then this guide may help you to use your Native hotkeys of laptop.
(All the Credits goes to @RehabMan For OS-X-ACPI-Debug Kext and DSDT Patches.)
This step assumes that you are using RehabMan's VoodooPS2Controller or Acidanthera's PS2Controller
Install the kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Debug
Open MaciASL and click on patch.(Add rehab man repo)
Apply "Add DSDT Debug Methods" and "Instrument EC Queries" that are under Brightness Fix.
Save the DSDT and restart
Look in Syslog as you press the key corresponding to brightness to determine which _QXX methods handle the keys
(UPDATE: From Sierra Apple changed logging process. So you won't find ACPIdebug result using syslog command. Instead use following command )
log show --last 5 | grep ACPIDebug
6. Then patch DSDT:
into method label _Q1D replace_content
// Brightness Down\n
into method label _Q1C replace_content
// Brightness Up\n
Change the variable _Q1D/_Q1C as per the log.
7. Try compiling and check if it generates errors 8. If it does, then change the PS2M to PS2X according to the one found in your DSDT 9. Save and place the compiled DSDT. 10. Now you should see that you have your corresponding keys to change your brightness
