I have darkwake=8 in my config.plist but i had to add autopoweroff 0 in pmset for proper sleep.

And until now with no errors or fails.

You could try a different darkwake mode. 8 works for me, for you, you may need different as @cyberdevs said we tested for many hours to come up with a "generic" guide and as we both found out what works for one doesn't mean it works for the other.

Hi Guys great guide, I have the Gigabyte Z170-UD5-TH version which is very similar to the Gaming 5. Which SSDTs would I be able to use for my board? and which would I have to create? I prefer using individual SSDTs opposed to making a DSDT and constantly updating it every bios revision

 



Cheers :)

Hi there and thanks :)

 

You can use Pike's ssdtPRGen.sh to create all the SSDT's for your rig.

Hey,

You should not be using any of the SSDT's or DSDT from this guide for your board. As @cyberdevs said, you should use that script to create a SSDT.aml for CPU power management then create any other DSDT and SSDT's.

This is a great guide, I use many instances of the guide for my own. I am not using and DSDT's or SSDT's for my hack, doing it all form config.plist and its working good.

 

My system...

IMac 17,1 SMBIOS

GA-Z170X-Gamer 5

Intel i7-6700k

32 Gigs DDR4 2134 Mhz

Samsung 500GB SSD

GeForce GTX 970 - 4095 MB

Samsung 4k 27" Monitor

USB Create Labs SB Omni Surround 5.1 card.

 

-Fixed Sleep within terminal   sudo pmset -a standby 0

Sleep is working and all the rest of the stuff..

Thanks for your reply, I used the script to create SSDT for processor power management but I meant these? 

 

-HPET

-SATA

-DTGP

-SLPB

-DMAC

-DARWIN

-LPC

-XHCI

-PLUGIN TYPE

-HDAS to HDEF

-HDEF

-RTC

-IRQs

-SBUS

-BUS1

-MCHC

-ALS0

-SHUTDOWN

-LAN

-USBX

-PMCR

-EC

-IMEI

-PNLF

-HDMI

 

I noticed that there's a few included but would like to ask if theres any chance I can get the SSDT files for each? Instead of just having @MaLd0n patch the entire DSDT for me

That's great, I have been using clover's ACPI patches for my system in the past when I was using El Capitan and they work just fine. But using a patched DSDT or SSDT's will benefit you to reduce the use on third party kexts and Kext Patches and it will help to activate more/proper use of your hardware resources by the macOS.

 

Do you have PM and do you have HDMI audio with just clover's ACPI patches? I'm just curious because without a patched DSDT or the SSDTs I had to take some extra steps to activate them.

I ask this because without the patched DSDT or SSDT I had to use HDMIAudio.kext and I had to run Toleda's CloverHDMI Script to have the HDMI audio activated.

You can press F4 while you are in clover's boot menu to dump all the original DSDT and SSDt tables and once you dumped them you can ask @Maldon to patch them for you.

 

When he patches the DSDT or SSDTs you will have all these options in the list that you just posted fixed for you ;)

You can also use this app to create all the SSDTs for your system.

 

Copy the file iasl to this path: /usr/bin/iasl and run the app for creating the ssdt files.

About USB 3 ports on the Front panel of the Gaming 5 EU Board.

 

I have a Logitech m570 wireless mouse and its receiver was plugged into the front panel usb2 port. Now, everytime i inserted an usb drive into the USB 3 port on the front as well, the cursor started stuttering until the os was done reading it.

 

After i swapped the USB 3 connector cable from the socket connector closest to 24 pin connector to the one below it everything worked fine. The connector feels really wobbly too. I wonder why the usb3 connector cables always have to feel so ancient. On my last board I even had to plug the cable in on the outside usb3 port.

Hey guys I've noticed that after using ssdtGen I am missing 5 SSDT's DMAC, MCHC, PMCR, PNLF and ALS0 when I compare my IOREG with a DSDT made by @MaLd0n.

Are these 4 SSDTs from the Gaming 5 patched folder universal or are they specific to @cyberdevs Gaming 5 system?

Send me a copy of your ACPI/origin folder so I can cross-examine those tables with mine.

Thankyou :) Here it is

This is my initial comparison, it is based on the files you've sent me. The SSDT tables the have a check mark are identical in both GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 and the GA-Z170-UD5

Appreciate your work :) so is it alright if I use these on my board (DMAC, MCHC, PMCR, PNLF and ALS0)?

Download the DPCIManager Update Seed, Update IDs and save a screenshot from PCI List (Adjust the columns so I can read the whole info) send it to me. I need to compare some device IDs and I will tell you for sure if the you can use them or not.

Also does anyone know how to enable Nightshift on external display? I recently purchased a LG 38UC99-W 3840x1600 monitor and Nightshift isn't available on either DisplayPort at 75hz or HDMI (even when I try connecting it with USB C on my MacBook). 

 

Thankyou :D

@unknwon1221

 

from what I found we don't need PNLF, ALS0 and DMAC they are for laptops. but you can use MCHC, PMCR.

 

But a word of caution if your system performs normally with all the SSDT files that you already generated do not add any unnecessary files.

@cyberdevs

Thankyou for that information I appreciate it :)

Also would anyone know how to make my monitor LG 38UC99-W that is recognised as a 'tv' to be recognised as a 'display'? With the monitor being recognised as a 'tv' I'm unable to enable Nightshift :/

 

Thanks guys :D

Thankyou for that link :) but isn’t that only for people using a smbios that isn’t supported by nightshift? Not that their monitor is recognised as a ‘tv’?

Yeah I thought it might give you some info on how to troubleshoot the problem.

 

NightShift should work OOB are you sure that your config.plist is ok? are you using the latest Lilu.kext and nVidiaGraphicsFixup.kext?

Thankyou, I have both the latest

I recently updated my monitor to a LG 38UC99-W and since then the display has been recognised as a “Television” under system profile, and I believe that’s why I’m unable to get nightshift

I tried to connect the monitor to my MacBook and it is recognised as a TV too and Nightshift doesn’t work for it either

      Hi, 
       
      I try to get a notebook working vanilla. 
       
      I used clover and patched DSDT.aml to get it booting. Now I have power-management issues and sound left. 
      Sound is more important for me at the moment.
       
      My notebook has following hardware: 
      Realtek ALC269 @ Intel Skylake PCH-H 
       
      lspci on ubuntu said: 
      00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-LP HD Audio (rev 21)
       
      id: multimedia description:  Audio device product:  Sunrise Point-LP HD Audio vendor:  Intel Corporation physical id:  1f.3 bus info:  pci@0000:00:1f.3 version:  21 width:  64 bits clock:  33MHz capabilities:  pm msi bus_master cap_list configuration: driver = snd_hda_intel latency = 32 resources: irq : 128 memory : df120000-df123fff memory : df100000-df10ffff  
      What would be the best way to install it? 
      Is it possible to do it only with EFI/Clover or do I have to touch /L/E?

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Release v2018.05.17 on GitHub Updated to Clover r4458 Updated Lilu.kext - supports both Sierra and High Sierra Updated AppleALC.kext - supports both Sierra and High Sierra + added back DVMT patch for 10.13.2+ Updated VoodooPS2Controller.kext (RehabMan version) + SSDT updates for T460 Added Frank's T470p DSDT files
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.

      Trying to install Mavericks on an Asus H170M-E D3 motherboard, Skylake I3-6100 cpu, Intel 530 graphics.
      Last message I see is "root device uud is" and a series of "+++" but then it just stops.
      Have prepared usb with createinstallmedia, added Clover 4413 and changed a few settings with Configurator.
      Any help is welcome.

      First of all I want to thank all the people in advance who helped make this happen all the credit goes to them, I just gathered what I’ve learned from them.
      Pike R Alpha, RehabMan, Majonéz, Yassinex, Toledo, Todeleda, TheRacerMaster, OiCKilL, Andres ZeroCross, bomerr and many other great minds who helped me out. If any name/s is/are left out please let me know so I put it/them right here.
      These are my specs:
      Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 5
      Intel Skylake 6700K @ 4.0 GHz up to 4.2 GHz
      4x8 GB 2666 DDR4 GSKILL RIPJAWS Memory Modules
      Kingston HyperX Savage 240 GB 6Gbps SSD
      AMD Radeon HD7790 1 GB GDDR5
      TP-Link WDN-4800
      CoolerMaster Nepton 120XL Cooling Unit
      CoolerMaster V750-Gold Power Supply Unit
      CoolderMaster Silencio 452 MidTower Case
       
      BIOS Settings:
      In BIOS from M.I.T. choose Advanced Memory Settings
           I. From Extreme Memory Profile(X.M.P.) I Choose [Profile1] it's crucial to choose this option if you want your memory modules work with their full frequency.
           II. Enter the correct System Memory Multiplier which in my case based on my 2666MHz DDR4 it must be 26.6.
           III. Select [Enhanced Performance] from Memory Enhancement Settings. You can choose any of the options I chose Enhanced Performance.
           IV. From BIOS Features Fast Boot is disabled, Windows 8/10 Features is set to Windows 8/10 WHQL, LAN PXE Boot Option is disabled, CMS Support is Enabled, Storage Boot Option Control is UEFI Only, Other PCI Device RPM Priority is UEFI Only and Network Stack is Disabled and Secure Boot State is Disabled.
           V. From Peripherals: VT-d is disabled, Internal Graphics is set to Auto, Audio Controller is Enabled, Audio DSP is Disabled, PCH LAN Controller,SATA Configuration is set to AHCI, Wake on LAN and High Precision Timer are Enabled. I didn’t patch my BIOS because of a great job that Pike R Alpha did with a kext based patch for Skylake processors and to patch the AppleACPI.kext.
      Under Super IO Configuration Serial Port must be disabled as well.
      UPDATE: I recently updated my BIOS to f5h and IOAPCIEntries 24-119 Entries is there so if you are using that version of the BIOS or anything prior to original f4 you don't need to use the ACPI patch.
           VI. Save your new settings and reboot.
      Here is a copy of my EFI folder which works great with this configurations, Just remember I didn’t inject any Graphic Adapters so you have to configure it with yourself based on the graphic adapter you are using.

      Use clover configurator to edit your config.plist
      ACPI: "Add the following DSDT Patch"
      Comment: Rename HDAS to HDEF
      Find* [HEX] :48444153
      Replace [HEX] :48444546
      Set the following flags under Boot section:
      kext-dev-mode=1 and rootless=0
      The audio won't work by default, you need to install Toledo's audio driver or install VoodooHDA.
      Toledo's commands are available at: https://github.com/t...audio_CloverALC
      and
      VoodooHDA is available at: http://sourceforge.n...ects/voodoohda/
      I personally use VoodooHDA instead of Toledo's script because for some unknown reason with Toledo's audio kexts and script while I was playing musics after a few minutes I could hear a noise which was getting worse so I tried VoodooHDA and now it work perfectly fine.
      My audio layout is set to 1.
      FYI: If you are going to use VoodooHDA just remember after you installed the VoodooHDA there will be a file in your application folder called "VoodooHdaSettingsLoader" which you need to place it in your login items in system preferences under "Users and groups" ---> "login Items" and adjust the "input Gain" under "VoodooHDA" in system preferences to avoid the hissing sound every time the OS starts. and if you don't every time you restart the system you'll need to adjust your audio settings. By loading this application OS will remember you settings and load them.
