-integrated pre-made clover config tamplets database

I think that will be quite hard for the end-user, because of the {censored}load on different system configurations.

Other than that it looks pretty interesting  :yes:

 

As of the language: I'd be happy to provide you a Dutch translation by time

for that I can simply get a folders with the config.plist collection into the app resources folder, for langue I speak only English and Italian, so that is what I can do by my own, but when I implement support to other languages I can add more easily different languages

The description makes it look like a clone of Pandora before it was released, thumbs up or this one.

yes, but there are some things i don't like in pandora, mainly i don't think that it's design is good, i learned how to develops apps from a special academy of apple and i learned their design philosophy.

And i came up to create my own app that does the same thing but using a more clear and simple design inspired by what i learned at apple and also i am using some of the latest technologies in the sdk with support to all the latest OSes.

 

I am creating this app also as a personal coding challenge because i believe that i can make something better than that {censored} of the {censored} Tonymacx86

Indeed, we do not support the tonymac's tools, but always remain respectuous, so please do the same for you. Thank you.

First version of pandora was all bash, it was great. I reckon you aim at v2 and up. Was not to fond of it since v1 just worked, no fancy stuff.

 

Great what you are doing, and the forum has some good coders to fight the beast :D

i am talking abut pandora 2 and 3 and also i think that you can have the best command line tool in the world, but for the general user propose of those tools a well made ui is way better from their point of view, while creating this tool we have to thing abut something that works well and that the noob user can understand easily, because apple is focused to create also products for everyone even the most noob of them, but i agree with you, the command line pandora just works well, but i decided to create my own solution from zero, just because i like to have the full control of it

Yes, but when I release to you the finished version, now it's in testing with mine closed group of testers

 

I am also working with some friends at European ios developer academy here in Naples, Italy to improve the design and the functionality of the app and also I need to change the license I am using to release the app, I will work very hard to get to you a finished build to start using it

Small announcement, TINU will also be able to format for you the drive you selected, so no need to go in disk utility first, and also it's receiving a lot of changes for the Ui thanks to a designer that is giving me some help (just of you are asking UI design is not about make something to look fancy or to look cool, the UI design is to make the interface of a software usable and understandable for the final user, so that's why i am not using special art or graphics or ui, the goal of my app is to work well and be simple and easy to use, without strange and unnecessary things or graphics, just what you need to easily complete the task)

ok, cool, probably for the multi language stuff i will do it when i have inserted into the app almost all the features i want to add, so when i have the UI almost finished that will not change too much in other updates

any update on this?

 

The public version is almost ready, I am waiting for the designer to review it, but in the meanwhile I have updated the screenshots, so you can see how the final version will look like

I have also received some good feedbacks from my testing group, so I am just waiting to receive the ok from the designer, I am also doing some other testing just to see if there is something to be fixed for the public release, after the that release I will start to work on some new features (that I will not introduce in the first public release, because I just want that to run stable)

Just an update, the first public version is almost ready, I have gives it to my group of testers to try to discover some errors and bugs, I also received the ok to procede from my designer, so you will se the public version soon, I am working on optimization and stability, just to let you have a good release to play with

ok, after fighting with some bugs that took a lot of time to figure out how to solve them, I have the final version ready!, but the source code is not so much clear, ordered and also I did not use a lot of comments, but the source code contains a lot of tweaks and features hidden into the public version, like the vibrant design option (I am still working with my designer for that, in the meanwhile the standard design version is ok and it's my way to go).

 

Because of the structure of the app, if you don't trust the pre-compiled version I will distribute, you can use the source to create your own, but there are some rules and license restrictions to respect, like the fact that any version of the app created by anyone must be open source and under the same license I used and also it have to be free, if you use code from my app in any project, that project must be open source, in the repository I say also to public any new version of the app that you create on a new branch on the repository itself, so I can control the third party versions of the app and remove dangerous and unsafe versions, and also don't touch the main branch, I will release there my source code, that will be your point of reference for third party versions. After that I will say are you ready for the first public version? it will be released in the releases version of the GitHub repository, do you prefer some other places for distribution of pre-build binaries?

      Hello everyone!
       
      I am fairly new to the world of Hackintosh. I recently moved my previous build into a smaller form factor. However, I am running into a series of problems with the USB ports on the new case and the new motherboard.
       
      Part List:
      - i7-7700k
      - Gigabyte Z270N Gaming 5
      - 16GB Trident Z RGB 3200 MHz
      - Sapphire RX 470
      - NZXT Kraken x62
      - NZXT H200 for the case
       
      Everything in the Hackintosh works just like it did before, nothing changed in the hardware department other than the motherboard (previously a gigabyte Z20X Ultra) and the case.
      This motherboard does not have any USB 2.0 ports in the back, there is only one header on the board, currently taken by the Kraken x62. The rest of the ports are all either USB 3.1 Gen1 or USB 3.1 Gen2, and the front of the case has 3.1 Gen1 ports as well.
       
      This is my current problem:
      When I plug something into either the type A or type C Gen2 ports, it works fine as a normal USB 3.x device with normal speeds, but when I plug something into any other USB port, it only works at lower 2.0 speeds. This is a big problem for me, since I have a few external devices that need the 3.0+ speeds and I don't know what to do.
      I tried to follow many different guides on how to patch USB ports, remove the limits, etc... But nothing seems to work.
       
      Please someone help me!

      EDIT: MacOS Mojave 10.14 ONLY I didn’t test 10.14.1! The EFI folder is compatible with High Sierra.
       
      Guide to installing 10.14 Mojave on a ASUS X555L
       
      What Works:
      -WiFi
      -Sound
      -Graphics (Intel)
       
      What doesn't Work:
      -Bluetooth
      -NVidia Web Drivers
      -Battery Indicator
       
      Used Kexts:
      Picture
       
      Clover setup:
      Clover plist is downloadable in this topic.
       
      Let's start
       
      Step one:
      First get a USB with 8+ GB of storage and a MacOS Mojave 10.14 installer from the AppStore.
       
      Partition the USB in a GUID style and 2 partitions, one partition HFS+ and one partition FAT32.
       
      In the FAT32 partition put the EFI Folder there.
       
      On the HFS+ partition get the MacOS Mojave .app using this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USBNAME --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app --nointeraction Lets install!
       
      Put the USB in a 3.0 port on the LEFT side of the Notebook.
       
      In the BIOS follow the default Hackintosh settings, do NOT forget to put Memory allocation to 64MB (Otherwise you won't boot)
       
      Boot into the Installer and install MacOS Mojave.
       
      Boot into MacOS. Now your Graphics are working but your WiFi and Sound are not! for the WiFi follow this video:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxFsjhc-AuM Once rebooted WiFi is working! 
       
      For sound get the VooDooHDA.kext and place it into /Library/Extensions
       
      Reboot once again and your sound is now working flawlessly!
       
      My EFI Folder is downloadable

      Hi,
      do you know where someone could start getting involved in development for Hackintosh / IOS (jailbreaks etc.) development? I am searching for information about the Kernel development rather than developing apps. 
      I recently finished my bachelor of engineering in electric engineering but the computer science always interested me more. We are being tought about some principles of a operation systems and writing code in c..
       
       
      Until know I found the apple developer website, and the books from Jonathan Levin (but they are some kind of expensive for my current situation as a student).
      I also think that it would be useful to get started with the structure of the linux kernel.
      Do you have more sources I could learn more? How did you become what you are know in the hackintosh community? 
      Google is not very helpful "Hackintosh development" only brings up how to develop apps with an hackintosh...
       
      I posted it in AMD because I am especially interested in the kernel manipulation to get the XNU Kernel working under AMD. If this is the wrong corner, please move it in the right one. 
      Thank you.
       
      EDIT
      And for sure other sources are the wikis of insanelymac and the other hackintosh websites!
