In a nutshell can anyone tell me how to bypass the 'OSInstall.mpkg' error? Just can't fathom it out.

Thanks!

I've modified both of those. It's working fine (FFM = 0xFFFFFFFF) and I can verify this in 10.11 and 10.12. The problem is PMheart's kext inject code isn't working here for 10.13. Only denskop's precompiled Clover build has worked so far.

I tried with values from real macs but it doesn't change anything.

 

MacBook-Pro OSInstaller[558]: ROM Features returned nil!
MacBook-Pro OSInstaller[558]: ROM Features returned: 0
MacBook-Pro OSInstaller[558]: ROM does not support APFS

However, let's try your values. Post the FirmwareFeaturesMask and I'll compile clover with it.

I've just been using FFFFFFFF as suggested by savvamitrofanov earlier.

 

It looks like they have fixed Clover now so might as well wait for confirmation. I've already spent enough time today going in circles with broken code.

Stay tuned , guys!

There binary with kernel_patcher and kext_inject hard coded for 10.13 with PMHeart, denskop patch.

You need to set FirmwareFeatures in config.plist to 

<key>FirmwareFeatures</key>
<string>0xe907f537</string>
Magic number for FirmwareFeaturesMask 0xff1fff3f

Thanks I'll run with it now so I can get 10.13 installed once and for all.

 

I guess Clover needs more work to be able to detect 10.13 so until then hardcoding the kext injecting is the only way.

Pretty cool, I've formatted a partition to APFS and added the driver to the clover folder and it works.

So you use a same EFI partition with Sierra and with any extra config to work with HighSierra ?

How do you guys get the full installer to create a USB? Whenever I download it from the Mac App Store, I only get a 5 MB file.

Anyone have a problem with disks not loading in disk utility on install? Also should the entry in clover.plist look like this?

<key>FirmwareFeatures</key>
<string>0xe907f537</string>
<key>FirmwareFeaturesMask</key>
<string>0xff1fff3f</string>

Cheers
