Thanks to the DriveDX Tool it informed me that the firmware of the SSDs were outated, so I updated that too now. Great tool!

 

POWER ON TIMEs:

 

MAC SSD: 5.489 h (7 Months, 18 Days)

WIN SSD: 7.535 (10 Months, 13 Days)

DATA HDD: 6.516 (9 Months, 1 Day)

You're welcome :)

 

It is one of the best SMART monitoring softwares that I have found over the years. It's more accurate than the other ones.

 

The Power On Times are usual. There is also two built-in Self-Tests that you can run on your hard disks and it will check for the errors on your hard disk. (Short Self-test and Long Self-test)

 

if those tests fail there is a serious problem in your hard disks.

 

You can also run the Disk utility's First Aid on your HFS formatted volumes to check and repair the software related errors. DO NOT RUN FISRT AID on NTFS or FAT32 formatted hard disks.

​Thanks for letting us know... I suppose we can just put in our clover kexts folder like the others.

You're welcome :)

 

Actually the kext needs to be installed in the /Library/Extensions.

Hey guys, I've been trying to get my Z170-UD5-TH hack to have integrated and discreet graphics running at the same time (intel 530 as IGPU and 1080 ti as GFX0) :)

 

Everything's working great, quick sync is enabled however after the computer goes to sleep it takes over 20-30 seconds for wifi to turn back on. Its almost like my wifi card is disabled for that period of time.

The card is a natively supported BCM94360CD in a pci slot and works with almost no delay (5 seconds max) without the intel 530 igpu enabled (just the 1080 ti)

Does anyone know what could be causing this delay?

WiFi delay, sound problems and audio volume problems are generally related to SMC and nvram.

 

since we don't have a SMC chipset in our hacks the only thing that I can think of is the nvram and the FakeSMC so check that you have the latest FakeSMC and use these commands in terminal to clean the nvram, or just remove the nvram.plist if it's present in the EFI partition and see how it goes.

sudo nvram -c
sudo purge

Hi guys

 

I just found a fix for iBooks and the transparent window issue:

 

https://github.com/mologie/NVWebDriverLibValFix/releases

 

Install this kext as instructed and it will fix the issue.

 

Hello again cyberdevs,

I was about to try this Kext, however then I tested before to find the iBooks transparent window has already been fixed now. That is in the newest 10.12.6, with the newest .25. nvidia web driver. So it seems this kext is not needed [for that] anymore.

 

However readme on github does say 'makes nvidia the primary graphics'... So perhaps there can still be other graphics issues which this kext might be able to solve. Dont know...

 

Anyhow the only glitch i saw anymore is: black rectangle in the system tray (menubar). So if it solves other glitches then its still useful i guess? So I'm going to hang on to this one. But not going to apply yet until I first see something else to reproduce and test it with / without the kext.

I have the nVidia set as primary and running the latest updates for macOS and Web Driver but I still had the same problem with iBooks, I checked right after the updates but the problem was still there so I posted about the kext. I still have the rectangle glitches as well.

 

But if you don't need the kext anymore that's awesome :)

Thankyou for the suggestion 

I just tried that but no luck the long delay is still there :/

Would you suggest downgrading to an older bios where nvram support was native?

As far as I know since f20, downgrading to previous versions is not supported since Gigabyte made it almost impossible, but if you can find a way to do so and If you don't want to use KabyLake cpus you can use f5 which had nvram support.

Guy, does anybody experiencing the buggy USB 3.0 speed with the new 10.12.6?

 

I also replaced the USBInjectAll.kext with the latest version 0.6.2 it's a little bit better but still not as good as before.

 

I tested two different USB disks and the results is the same, the USB 3.0 speed slows down after a few seconds.

 

So please let me know if you are experiencing the same.

^^ This.

 

Aparrently... there is a way to downgrade the BIOS to before F20. But its not so nice and easy thing. Perhaps a little risky to brick the BIOS if you do it wrong. Or else maybe you can use a SOIC8 clip / spi hardware flasher. To bypass the QFlash restriction and manually reflash. Which is another more difficult / harder ways.

 

The other reason to go back is for bclk overclocking of locked skylake CPUs... which disables IGP at OS load time. But you can still on IGP graphics see the boot screen and enter the BIOS screens. I tested / tried this on Gaming 3.

​Again thanks for letting us know! Because I didnt know this either. Using the same method here. But I'm talking to another guy here who has made DSDT for Gaming 3 with other USB3 method (not USBInjectAll.kext)... so I will try test / compare tomorrow also. (both kinds his way and mine).

remember: ​For testing USB 3 speeds, its...

dd if=/dev/rdiskX of=/dev/null bs=1m count=100

the device name in OS X must be the /dev/rdiskX one and not /dev/diskX OK guys!

Dude, we miss you here :)

 

Did you notice any drop in USB 3.0 Speed with macOS 10.12.6?

Awww how sweet lol. Sorry got a lot going on.

I actually havnt noticed a speed drop in .6 but I havnt tested it either. I create USB's with dd in terminal and the source is usually on my server, I havnt seen it take longer than previously but I'll run a speed test with my flair and see how I go.

Thanks, I'll appreciate it :)

 

I will also test the command that @dreamcat4 posted and see how it turns out.

 

I did some tests with Blackmagic Disk Speed Test and the results were upsetting :(

Heres my test result on a fat32 partitioned 850 evo ssd, attached on:

usb 3.0 enclosure, on usb 3.0 header next to the 24-pin atx socket.

and heres the same tests repeated on the same disk as a raw block device (rdisk)

And in BlackMagic Speed Test.app, it says "225.2 mb/sec write speed, 257.2 mb/sec read speed"

 

 

Which matches closely with the results from dd command line (225.27 mb/sec for the very last 400mb test here).

 

From memory (i had posted the result in another thread a long time ago). Compared to previous test before, and on this 10.12.6 update now, it seems no different for me cyberdevs.

 

If you are experiencing slower performance now, it might be something else. For example:

 

I had this other SSD here got overloaded too much, it had not enought time to do its garbage collection (to recover itself). And was temporarily in a slow performance mode. Some dude told me to write 000000 the whole drive, and just leave it plugged in idle (powered on system). My SSD came back to its normal performance.

Thanks for the info but can you please do me a favor and let the Blackmagic Disk Tester run for about 5 minutes with your USB disk selected as the target disk and choose the 5 GB file and see if the speed drops over time?

 

and here is my results with terminal command:

dd if=/dev/rdisk5 of=/dev/null bs=1m count=100
100+0 records in
100+0 records out
104857600 bytes transferred in 1.298610 secs (80746030 bytes/sec)
bash-3.2# dd if=/dev/rdisk5 of=/dev/null bs=1m count=100
100+0 records in
100+0 records out
104857600 bytes transferred in 1.294638 secs (80993766 bytes/sec)

I have to say that the problem I'm experiencing is of USB Flash Disk Drives. I haven't tested the external SSD Disks because I don't have one. :rofl:


At the begging the read/write speed is OK but after a few minutes the speed drops drastically.

Yeah... I was about to say: that is clearly a symptom of flash-based devices. If your speed initially starts looking OK, then that means the USB 3 bus speeds is fine. And can handle that bandwidth - all is OK with the USB 3 chipset performance.

Yup I zeroed out the flash disk and in few minutes the extended test will be done and then I'll check the disk again and if it's the same I just need to replace it ;)

Thanks, but how long did you let the test run?

Around 5 minutes i think.

Running it again now, Read speeds stay nice and high, around 144 MB/S but yeah while watching write speeds do drop to around 30 MB/s and the lowest i saw was 28 but it stays around 40 alot.

      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)

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (March 2020) Updated to Clover r5105 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
        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.

      Once the hdmi plugged in, the laptop display went blank, only could see the external tv
      But, when i put my laptop to sleep & wake up again, both screen got display (hdmi still connected)
      Even the hdmi could be plugged off & in (after sleep), the laptop display is fine
       
      What could be the culprit?

      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?

      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
