Same here with r4384

 

I had to use AptioMemory instead of AptioFix3drv to start my system  :yes:

Same issue here all I got in Verbose was lots of +'s with r4384.

Reverted to r4382 no issue.

Before 4385, if you had both OsxAptioFixDrv and OsxAptioFix2Drv in drivers64UEFI, it would pick up the one that occurs first in the FAT32 directory iteration.  After 4385 there is a prioritisation, so OsxAptioFix2Drv is picked up first.  I suggest you keep just the one that works for use in drivers64UEFI and move the others to drivers-Off/drivers64UEFI.

 

Had to change OsxAptioFixDrv2 to  OsxAptioFixDrv for 4385  :thumbsup_anim:

Hello,

Is possible to Clover recognize nvram plist files created for Chameleon based bootloaders (such as Enoch), since it has one already when emuvariable driver is used? I mean, if it could recognize and handle with these plist files, it would be possible to have only one plist file storing nvram variables visible and acessible to both bootloaders for the same system. This would be nice in a multibootloader installation. Thanks.

Let Chameleon to be "like Clover".

nvram.plist is created by very common command

$ nvram -x -p>nvram.plist

so it will not depend on bootloader.

Was using OsxAptioFix2Drv only then had to change to OsxAptioFixDrv for 4385, otherwise no boot, just black screen.

Thank you for your reply. This solution works very well for Clover, since it can see the new nvram.plist and so it recognizes nvram variables defined in a Chameleon boot session. I've written a bash script and used a daemon to do this at every boot. In the other direction, I've had to use PlistBuddy to edit a nvram.plist file in the formatting that Chameleon expects, so that it can see nvram variables defined in a Clover session. Now I'm trying to make this also "scriptized". Thanks again.

report lang issue to dev.
i reported this issue before
http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/284656-clover-general-discussion/?p=2565871
i traced this issue point. but not sure. I just want to report this point.
https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4414/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/DataHubCpu.c#l213
but surely effect lang after update with osxaptiofixv2+emul+ko set(config).

but if use osxaptiofixv3 or aptiomemoryfix without emul, what i mentioned above presents lang issue(ko+eng)
i checked this is OS X's business. so i checked realmac nvram dump.

realmac has this nvram vals

there are not PlatformLang/PlatformLangCodes

 

Apple uses a modified EFI 1.10 firmware so it probably never updated from previous protocols those variables are deprecated variables in UEFI:

Lang      NV, BS, RT The language code that the system is configured for. This value is deprecated.
LangCodes BS, RT     The language codes that the firmware supports. This value is deprecated.
Lang has been deprecated. If the platform supports this variable, it must map any changes in the Lang variable into PlatformLang in the appropriate format.
[LangCodes] has been deprecated. If the platform supports this variable, it must map any changes in the [LangCodes] variable into [PlatformLangCodes] in the appropriate format.
*I made some corrections to what seem like obvious mistakes in the specification language

PlatformLang and PlatformLangCodes use RFC 4646, where Lang and LangCodes use ISO 639-2. But none the less, we should set them if they are not present.

Thanks. So how can i test? Just add lang and lang code?

Current, pre-lang:kbd nvram key effects system lang after update. Because aptiofixv2+emu combination is no problem.

 

Does it equal pre-lang:kbd and lang?

Yeah, just add them. But you have to use ISO 639-2, so they are different language codes. Lang and LangCodes are firmware variables, they are almost surely not supported by almost all UEFI firmware, so you'd have to still set the others still too. This probably means that it might not be able to find some protocols that relied on this language code format because they have been switched to work with RFC4646 and PlatformLang(Codes). Like EFI_UNICODE_COLLATION_PROTOCOL...

No, that is an Apple GUID variable, that should get set by setting a keyboard and language in system preferences (or when you do that during install). Did you remember to apply all the variables from your nvram.plist to your native NVRAM after removing EmuVar?

Thank you for info. Yes. I checked it with several test times. I removed EmuVar+osaptiofixv2 and rcscript and nvram.plist. then sudo nvram -c. And check nvram -p until update beta. Then put osxaptiofixv3 or aptiomemoryfix in driver64uefi folder, then update beta. Then i found lang issue of reboot windows.

 

So, i just saw difference between emul+fixv2+ko(config) and (fixv3 or memoryfix). Just there is whethe pre-lang:kdb exist. Iike you said before, this key osx business(recorded in code). I didn't understand. It means what. So i compared my nvram dump and realmac from darwindump tool to close to problem.

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.
      Appreciate ! Acer 5750 Official Page

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.
