[pre-release] macOS High Sierra

This is a simple trick which originally by @RehabMan for his HackrFamily, I'm not sure whether this will work as well, but anyway I think it's worth trying.

 

Firstly set FakeID for SATA in config.plist to 0xabcd8086. It looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
	<key>Devices</key>
	<dict>
		<key>FakeID</key>
		<dict>
			<key>SATA</key>
			<string>0xabcd8086</string>
		</dict>
	</dict>
</dict>
</plist>

 
And then put this dummy kext into Clover/kexts/Other or 10.13 folder. Delete the patched one from /S/L/E (Restore to vanilla one, in case you don't have it, will post the original one below)

 

Dummy kext:

attachicon.gifHackAHCIPort_v328.kext.zip

 

Original v329 kext from DP5:

attachicon.giforig_AppleAHCIPort_v329.kext.zip

 

Please test, if you can normally boot then, thanks.

I can try with installer too?

Kexts are in BaseSystem.dmg and I don't think dummy have any effect.

Nope, does not work either....

 

I am doing o.k. when using it as a KextToPatch entry, right?

Your stuffs look good. I don't know why it doesn't work though...

I guess instead of patching the kext, you can also inject a property to your NVME device, and you can eliminate the patch.

Take a look on https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/2016/07/01/help-my-nvme-show-up-as-external/

Yes. Try it. Set FakeID and place the kext and give it a go.

I get this strange kernel panic with dummy loaded.

Oops. Sorry I have no idea now... May check that more carefully a little bit later.

Ok, thanks anyway.

Wouldn't it be an idea to *block* the kext in /s/l/e from loading (Clover's boot menu->Options->System Parameters->Block Kext), and injecting your patched kext through Clover? 

 

Don't know if it works, but it's worth a try

 

Edit: Nevermind. I tried it myself with some random kext and NoCaches=True, but the kext gets loaded anyway.

As a work around, you can install DB5 on an external USB hard disk, replace AppleAHCIPort.kext v329 in /S/L/E with v328 (don't forget to repair permissions and rebuild kernel cache), then clone the working system back to your internal SATA hard disk eg with Carbon Copy Cloner or Disk Utility.

What Graphics Card are you using for High Sierra with your 5-series motherboard?

 

I have a P55A-UD4P but am stuck on El Capitan as I am using a 9800GT and have been unable to upgrade to Sierra (and soon High Sierra)

 

Compared to the first beta, it seems DB5 working much better with APFS on old spinning HDDs . Successful clean install here on my GA-P55aUD3 desktop (5 series MB with legacy BIOS/i5-750/ATI HD5770) with 7200rpm HDD.

Hey guys,

 

Thought I'd share a weird incident with my High Sierra (SSD) installation.

 

I booted into High Sierra in an attempt to update to Beta 5. I noticed I didn't have the update (I forgot to enroll the device again...). Anyway, that's not the weird part.

 

I rebooted into the High Sierra HDD (HFS+) installation to do the same thing. And everything went perfectly fine over there.

 

But after that, I did another reboot and tried to go back into the High Sierra SSD installation (which uses APFS). And...for the first time, I got into a black screen. And yes, I'm using a supported video card. There's no need for an Nvidia driver here. Not that I'm using any. Tried multiple restarts, all with the same result.

 

Now I feel bad that I didn't try booting into verbose mode. First stage boot looked to be completed, so this happened when initializing the OS in order to reach the Desktop.

 

So that was weird... So, I created a USB drive with Beta 5, rebooted, installed it from the USB and all fine after that. But I thought this was a weird incident, especially since I didn't change anything the first time I booted into the OS. I just tried to update it, realized that I don't have the update yet (after reboot I remembered why), then I booted into the other installation and everything went fine over there. But when coming back to this one, I couldn't boot into the OS anymore.

 

So yeah, I thought I'd share my weird experience, (not even related to the latest update, since I didn't change anything) in case it helps anyone.

Well done :

 

But i had an issue after upgraded the new apfs.efi DP4 driver , i had remove it and put the first apfs efi driver i used before and all works fine

 

I post here my radeon seetings : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312582-amd-polaris-ids-on-sierra-high-sierra/page-32?do=findComment&comment=2477008

 

In fact the problem with the apfs.efi driver DP4 was after the first reboot : i had the same issue as LuCyr04 reported.

I did thought for this good one an perhaps a mistake i made after watching on TV the Apple WWDC where was related the support for Amd Radeon on High Sierra, yes there is a support but not full OOB support at my sens. ^_^

I readed too reviews about GT 1030 which will come to position itself in front of the recent Radeon RX 550 :

 

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gt-1030-2gb,5110.html ( english )

 

http://www.tomshardware.fr/articles/test-gt-1030-nvidia-gigabyte,1-64661.html ( french  )

 

But as you related no testing in hacks yet now but seems to be a good middle entry level GPU Polaris 12 more effeicient than GT710.

I don't think they will have native support at least not until Apple makes a new computer with SkyLake X processor which is highly unlikely because they just created iMac Pro with xeon processors and for the patches developers know better if that's possible I don't know about that.

According to @Pike there is support for SkyLake X processors and with the confirmation from @surfinchina and other members that have installed macOS High Sierra on their x299 hacks, so I will stand corrected on the post I made earlier ;)

 

more info at: 

Support for Skylake X found in High Sierra DP-X

Yes, I tried it out but couldn't get web drivers to work as it seems to be with all Pascal cards at the moment. It works great in Sierra and is a fine card in general, in my opinion the best budget card Nvidia has ever made. And I hope so much (literally praying!) that Apple won't force me to buy some of those heavily overpriced AMD cards to get graphics acceleration in High Sierra :)

      Clover r5051 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5051 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5051-X64.iso 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.

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      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.

      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.
      This Nvidia 5200 is Fermi and works in ElCapitan.
       
      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 3.5.2.
      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 in 10.11.6. I not needed it so switched off by wireless switch at right side.
      For 10.13.6 there is other kext BRCMInjector.
       
      Keyboard, Touchpad and Touchstick
      Post #14
      I made my fork of the VoodooPS2 driver, take here sources and release version
      https://github.com/SergeySlice/VoodooPS2-for-ALPS
       
      My config, ACPI files and kexts are in attachment.

      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. Note, HighSierra is possible only with Intel graphics (Optimus is enabled in BIOS)
