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

Run these commands in terminal one by one and see it that changes anything:

1. sudo nvram -c
2. sudo purge
3. sudo rm -f /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache && sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force

Do I run these commands after I install the Nightshift kexts from the previous post?

I have just tried running those commands and in system report the display still is recognised as a 'television' and no sign of nightshift :/

What should I do now?


I have also tried NightShiftUnlocker with no luck :/

Unfortunately NightShift doesn't work on my TV either, but your display is not a TV but macOS detects it as a TV so I assume that's why NightSift doesn't work. I have no solution to fix it. But if I come up with an idea I will let you know.

As I haven't sold my old monitor just yet, Samsung S34E790C. I decided I'd clone its EDID and then put it in the overrides folder. and magic.. Nightshift is supported and my LG 38UC99-W monitor which previously was being recognised as a 'tv' is no longer. (although at the lower resolution 3440x1440 of the Samsung monitor, instead of the 3840x1600 of the LG). Now I just want to find out what is it about the native EDID of my LG 38 that makes MacOS believe its a TV... :D
Does anyone know any programs to use to edit the EDID?

You can use SwitchResX

You don't need to edit the EDID for resolutions. Just need to add the correct resolutions to the correct override. I recently did this for my laptop which has a 1366x768 screen and with the correct override I can now choose 1920x1080 while pressing alt.

 

For EDID editing you can try fixEDID.

Cheers for the support guys im determined to figure this out :P

Alright so ive done heaps of testing with many many custom EDIDs and ive come to this conclusion...
I can get a resolution 3832x1598 soo very very close to 3840x1600 and Nightshift will work and display won't show up as TV. so a big win! 

It seems that apple has made it that when it detects a monitor runs at QHD '4k' resolution (well the 3840 part, which is the case with my ultra wide resolution), it just assumes it is a TV

Now the real question is, how can somehow get past this limitation?

The only display that apple officially sells is the LG 5K 27" display which is available on their web site, so I guess you correct about that. "If it's bigger than 27" so it has to be a TV, DUHH!" ;)

Exactly and their only 4k monitor is 4096 not 3840...

So that explains why the monitor shows up as a TV
That would mean though that everyone with a 3840 x XXXX monitor would have their monitor show up as a 'TV' and no Nightshift

What do you think could be done about this?

Well, to be honest the best shot that you have is to edit those EDID settings until you get the maximum resolution, which I'm not so familiar with, but the whole dilemma got me thinking but unfortunately I don't own a 4K or 5K display so I can't say for sure. I can only test it on my old 32" TV which only supports 1080p resolution but I guess it wouldn't make any difference since it is actually a TV not a monitor. :rofl:

Its just very annoying MacOS isn't able to rely on both horizontal and vertical aspects before classifying a monitor as a 'TV'.

I would be interested to find out if theres anyone with a UQHD monitor that has Nightshift working

Wonder if anything can be done

Yeah Apple is very choosy when it comes to hardware, they will only support what they use. The term Hackintosh is the most appropriate name for what we do, We hack the macOS to be compatible with non apple hardware ;)

For the time being I have made a custom EDID with the exact 3840x1600 @75hz and am using that with FixEDID to spoof my display as a Apple Thunderbolt Display. This finally enables Nightshift

Hopefully in the near future Apple will fix the incorrect classification and I won't have to use this patch. If anyone would like the EDID then PM me :)

It might have full support in macOS High Sierra we only have to wait for the final release and the nVidis web drivers to find out ;)

@f00b4r you bet, I just did that before :) I have this issue on my MacBook and would assume every Mac would experience the same issue. As they only use one field either horizontal or vertical to determine if a monitor should be classified as a 'TV', hence the misclassification.

I'm running the latest High Sierra betas and so far there isn't much change, but fingers crossed for the future

Hopefully they listen :D

I did nothing to get night shift and it is choosable with my Dell UP2716D

Aren’t you lucky :P I’ve noticed that your monitor is only 2560x1440? Ive noticed the issue of monitor being incorrectly recognised as ‘TV’ only on monitors with 3840 x XXXX resolution

I still have an issues with the Front Panel USB Ports of my Hackintosh build. And I wonder if it is software or hardware related.

 

I have the EU Version of this Board and a Fractal Design Refine R5 case. The USB Plug is connected to one of the the ports next to the 24 Pin connector.

 

My Logitech m570 Trackball Mouse is plugged in the USB 2 Port on the Front Panel. And as soon as I put a Drive into one of the other USB ports the Mouse Pointer starts stuttering, like scanning the drive/disk blocks the transfer from the mouse. It's very annoying. Does soomebody have an Idea how to fix this?

 

Another Thing: Somebody told me that m.2 and NVME will be supported natively once High Sierra comes out. Is this true? Or does it work already? It's such a fast Interface. Would be great to run the OS from that.

 

Thanks.

The easiest way to see if it's hardware or software for your USB ports is to boot a live linux USB or windows and test the ports.

Or you can test other USB ports and see if the problem is still there.

 

M.2 is already supported in macOS but NVMe needs patches to work in Sierra and it has native support in macOS High Sierra.

Thanks for the Info.

 

I just updated to 10.12.6. The update worked without a problem.

 

But after the Restart, NVDIA Driver Manager informed me that there was a Web Driver update available. Version 378.05.05.25f01

Installed it restarted and then this happened:

 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8S5ZzOJJP9fV3FUV0RScURYeDA/view?usp=sharing

 

So the Cuda Driver Panel pops up and says "Hey your Cuda Drivers require am update. BUT I tried updating via the PrefPane as well as havoing a look at the Cuda Drivers Site from Nvidia. And actually, THIS Version 8.0.8.3 is the latest Version. Weird. So, Do I just have to wait then?

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (February 2020) Updated to Clover r5104 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Updated acidanthera VoodooPS2 kext v2.1.1 the older 1.9 to the Misc Folder as an option.
        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 (the 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.

      Hi, I'm trying to install Mac Os Catalina on a HP 550-132NL.
      The system has:
      i7-6700
      RAM 12 GB
      GT 730
      LAN Realtek RTL8161
      ALC3863
       
      It passes the verbose phase but after the Apple logo goes away, it gets stuck on a grey screen and I can only move the pointer.
      Can I try to boot with the iGPU?

      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5098): Click here -> ASUS-Z170_catalina.zip  
      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:
       

       




       
       
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)  
      Notes:
       
      2020.02.11: Updated to 10.15.3 -> No problem when/after installing
      2020.01.19: Added ASUS HyperKit NVMe SSD to the "What is working" list

    • By Andres ZeroCross
      First i will give you information about my specification
       
      Processor : Intel Core i7 6700
      Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3
      RAM : Team DDR4 8GB (2X4GB) 2133Mhz - up to 3000Mhz at XMP Profile
      Graphics Card : Palit Jetstream GTX960 4GB DDR5
      SSD and HDD : Fujitsu F200 for System + 500GB Seagate connect with add on PCI-e to Sata 3 Asmedia ASM1062 Chipset
      Other harddrive : 1 Natno SSD, 2x 2TB Seagate, 2x 500GB Seagate connect with internal SATA Controller Interface
      Wifi Card : TP-Link TL-WDN4800
      Monitor : 2x Asus VN248H (HDMI and Display Port with Converter)
      I need 2 new hardware to support this
      a. PCIe to Sata with 2 Ports Sata (because i use 2 important storage)
      b. PCI to USB 2.0 with NEC Chipset (i Plug USB Keyboard, Mouse and USB Installer here)
       
      My steps :
      1. Make USB installer El Capitan 10.11 Public Release with CreateinstallMedia method
      2. Install Clover Rev 3280 into it
      3. Basic configuration for BIOS (Disable serial port at IO section in bios, Boot with UEFI Mode,  Primary Graphics set to PCI-E, Sata Controller = AHCI, CSM Support = Disable, OS Mode = Windows 8/10 WHQL)
      4. My Masic Configuration for Config.plist (open with Clover Configurator Version 4.24)
          ACPI = tick FixHpet, AddDTGP, FixHDA, New Way, Delete Unused, AddHDMI, Drop OEM_DSM of HDA and SATA.
          Bootflag = nv_disable=1 -v dart=0
          Devices = USB Inject, Add Clock ID, Fix OwnerShip, Audio Layout = 2, Reset HDA
          Graphics = There is no change here
          Kernel and Kext Patches = FakeCPUIID 0x00306F2 and tick KernelHasswellE (Please anybody,, i dont want use this. Latest El Capitan 10.11.1 Beta is supported native to this processor right. Help me with kernel so i don't need to use fakeCpuIID again) I I use Clover R3292 and i don't need to use FakeCPUID again,, just tick Kernel Haswell-E and it will boot. So you need to use Clover R3292 and later
          Rt Variables = BooterConfig 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig 0x067
          SMBios = First i use SMBios MacPro 6.1 but later i just need to use iMac17,1 because My System build is identical with iMac17,1 hardware (SkyLake System)
          System Parameters = Inject Kexts Detect and Tick Inject System ID
      5. Boot from Your USB Installer and do everything like normal until you get into desktop
      6. Install Kext Utility,  
      7. Copy "AppleGraphicsControl.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to Desktop and then edit info.plist at "AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist" and look at OKitPersonalities->AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy->ConfigMap and change "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - Config1" to "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - None". Reinstall this kext with Kext Utility.
       
      Note : the reason you need to "Config1" of "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6" because it's BOARD-ID for MacPro6,1. so if you use SMBios of iMac17,1 then Check your Board-Id (you can use Clover Configurator and open your config.plist and see your Board-id at SMBios Section) and change "Config2/Config1" to "none". Now i use "Mac-DB15BD556843C820" as my Board-ID because i use iMac17,1 SMBios  so i need to change ConfigMap that related to it 
       
      8. Install Nvidia Web Driver version 346.03.02f02, and restart.
      9. Change bootflag "nv_disable=1" to "nvda_drv=1"
      10. After you get into desktop, get Latest Beta Build 10.11.1 Seed. You need to change seed catalog update first (google it).
      11. Do update to 10.11.1 Build 15B38b and restart
      12. Boot again with bootflag "nv_disable=1", and copy "NVDAStartupWeb.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to desktop. And open info.plist at "NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist". Look at "IOKitPersonalities->NVDAStartup" and change "NVDARequiredOS - 15A284" to "NVDARequiredOS - 15B". Save,, and reinstall this kext with Kext Utility
      13. IMPORTANT, if you use SMBIOS MacPro 6.1 or iMac 15.1 and some type (I forgot) then do "7Th Step" above again.
      14. Restart and reuse "nvda_drv=1"
      15. Now you have El Capitan 10.11.1 at your SKYLAKE Computer
       
      Problem
      1. Internal Sata is still not function, it show "Intel 10 Series Chipset" but "unknown" for Harddrive Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      2. USB 3.0 is not function too, but it shot at USB System Report Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      3. When you open Browser Applications, Movies or Something like that then it will freeze for 10 seconds. I check console and i found "NVDA(Graphics): Channel exception! Exception type = 0x8 DMA Engine Error (FIFO Error 8)" Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      4. Address of Sound HDEF is different with my DSDT. Normally it should be "0x001B0000" but at my board's DSDT is "0x001F0003". So ScriptCommand of Toleda for ALC is not work anymore, we need to change that script command from HDEF-B to HDEF-F (just look at the script)
      5. We need to change Device HDAS to HDEF at address "0x00fF0003", but something weird after 5times my system freeze and i look at Audio System Report it suddenly show all of AUDIO Interface , before not. Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      6. I look at my Graphics/Displays Sytem report and at PCIe Lane Width, it show "x4" or "x8". Damn,, it should be "x16". It will random change after freeze from "x4" or "x8" My bad, i just need to plug out and plug in again. Just assembly case
