Apple unveils "macOS High Sierra"

Same here no DSMOS has arrived message and used the latest FakeSMC that worked for Sierra. Did you choose the option to upgrade the filesystem? I did and wonder if that is what is causing the issue or maybe FakeSMC is just not compatible.

 

I tried both. FakeSMC doesn't load regardless. Its either Clovers Kext Injection which isn't working with Sierra or maybe FakeSMC requires updating. I haven't got much time to test atm.

Apple: Mac OS X Leopard

Apple: Mac OS X Snow Leopard

Apple: Mac OS X Lion

Apple: OS X Mountain Lion

Me: Come, on!  There's still OS X Cougar!!

Apple: We're out of cat names, let's name OS X after places in California...

Me: Great.  OS X Hollywood?

Apple: OS X Mavericks

Apple: OS X Yosemite

Me: OS X Hollywood?

Apple: OS X El Capitan

Me: OS X Hollywood?

Apple: LOL let's ditch "OS X", that's so 2001.  How about, macOS Sierra!

Me: macOS Hollywood does roll off the tongue a bit better.

Apple: macOS High Sierra...

Me: You better use macOS Hollywood next year, or you'll be seeing a lawsuit from me!!

Apple: ***Next Year's prediction*** We're out of California names, let's ditch the whole naming thing: macOS 10.14!!

Me:  :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:

TL;DR: It sounds like Apple had gotten lazy in picking a California name with "High Sierra"!

Do you know that joke of Apple and their OS Names? They got high on Sierra [Mist]. 

Sierra Mist is a sativa dominant hybrid strain of unknown genetics due to breeder secrecy. This bud is best known for competing in the High Times’ Cannabis Cup and gets its name from the soda Sierra Mist because of the similarities in flavors.

I wonder what their marketing guys have been smoking when they decided to call their next OS macOS High Sierra? Will we see macOS Dope or macOS Crack next year?

 

I think they should have stayed with the cat names. macOS Maine Coon, for example, is still available and sounds far better than "High Sierra"! By the way, there are so many names of cat races available...

Is there also an new macOS server app? because 5.3 doesn't work anymore with High Sierra

Yes, but you need to be a registered developer in order to have access to the macOS Server 5.4beta.

From the release notes, “Caching Server, Time Machine Server, and File Sharing advanced options are now built directly into macOS”.

All of these features are missing in Server.app 5.3.51 compared to Server 5.3.1 - Services: Caching, File Sharing, Time Machine, Xcode, (never use). Advanced: FTP, Open Directory. Does anyone know where I can find the Time Machine Server in High Sierra?

Time Machine and Xcode are both apps. I never use Time machine, but do use Xcode on occasion.

 

My problem with Time machine is you have to have two hard drives with the second being large enough to hold the boot drive in it's entirety, twice. Which to me is just a waste of space.

      I successfully installed macOS 10.11.6 and Windows 7 Pro SP1 in UEFI mode on the laptop.
      I know, there are detailed guides here and on osxlatitude.com but I was not agree with them and carefully check and test every step to tune my Mac.
       
      Hardware
      Intel® Core� i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, speedstep works with Clover default settings
      Chipset Intel 7 series, no patches needed
      Video: IntelHD4000 or NVS5200M switchable in BIOS, work in both cases
      LAN; Intel 82579LM, works with IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.2.1
      Audio: IDT 92HD93BXX, works with VoodooHDA 2.9.0.
      SDHC reader O2Micro; works with native AppleSDHC.kext with Clover Arbitrary properties.
      USB3.0 works natively if not disabled in DSDT
      PS2 keyboard and touchpad works with VoodooPS2.
      WiFi: Dell Intel WiFi was replaced by Dell DW1520, Broadcom BCM943224HMS. DeviceID=4353
      LCD Screen 1366x768
      BIOS A12. Initially was A02. Then I flashed A23 and found it is quite bad. The screen is full of artefacts. Flash A12 and all is OK. Not tested other versions.
      For some reason BIOS can switched from Intel to Nvidia by itself so I have to do my solution working independent on this state.
       
      WiFi
      It is not working OOB although it has DeviceID known to Apple. The reason is WhiteList in the driver.
      I set MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 while the WiFi will work on MacBookAir. I make a patch in Clover.
      As well a patch for channels.
      I deleted a kext Brcm4331 because it has the same DeviceID. Let kext Brcm4360 to work alone.
       
      VideoCards
      In Bios we can set Optimus = Enable/Disable
      If Enable then we have two videocards Intel first and Nvidia second. In this case additional SSDT-3.aml will switch off Nvidia.
      If Disable then we have only Nvidia card. It will work if Board-ID taken from iMac13,2.
      But here there is contradiction with WiFi with required Board-ID from MacBookAir.
      So I take MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 which is most close by CPU IvyBridge.
      Set BoardID like iMac13,2 to make Nvidia working.
      Patch BoardID in Brcm4360 to make WiFi working.
      Now I have
      Inject->
      ->Intel=YES
      ->Nvidia=YES
      and SSDT-3.aml in ACPI\patched folder. This SSDT will switch off Nvidia if Intel card ON.
      For Intel graphics there is a patch against 8 apples at start.
       
      Brightness
      No special kexts.
      The brightness controlled by keys F1,F2 and slider in Control Panel in both case Intel or Nvidia. Details here  #72 
       
      DSDT and SSDT
      This is very long story and finally I have working sleep in both cases Intel or Nvidia.
       
      Sensors
      I use my HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5.0.
      I got monitoring:
      CPU temperature
      GPU temperature
      GPU main frequency
      GPU shader frequency
      Battery state % full, time to charged or time to empty.
      Battery voltage dinamically.
      Battery amperage dynamically. I can see it changes on heavy games.
      HDD temperature.

       
      Audio
      I like VoodooHDA and have no problems with it.
      The sound is clear, loud, and switchable between internal speaker and headphone.
      Mic is working.
       
      Bluetooth
      Just tested with BTFirmwareUpdate.kext and it works. I not needed it so switched off by wireless switch at right side.
       
      Keyboard, Touchpad and Touchstick
      Post #14
       
      My config, ACPI files and kexts are in attachment.
      05.12.2017
      EFI.7z
       
      EDITED:
      Better DSDT in the post #6.
      Sleep working even when AC inserted.
       
      EDITED 06.12.2018
      Now I have HighSierra and this is my EFI folder

      First beta is out... build 18D21c
    • By fantomas1
      macOS Mojave 10.14.3 beta (18D21c)
    • By fusion71au
      Clover r4799 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4799 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4799-X64 by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
