@XLNC

Are you sure config.plist contains MaskFind and not MASKFIND as you shown? CAPITAL letters. 

 

@Slice Hi 
yes!  my 
config.plist contains MaskFind and not MASKFIND.

Give me catalina kernel. I will look how this patches may work.

Sure ! 
here is the kernel :
catalina_kernel.zip

 

And here is the .plist file, if you want to have a look at all the kernel patches for 15h_16h AMD CPU family to boot.
These kernel patches work on all 10.13.x,10.14.x,10.15.x macos on opencore.
15h_16h_config.plist.zip

 

 

thanks !

Hey all,
I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this. I have a mac pro 2010, I'm trying to run Clover so I can access the bootloader with a non UEFI graphics card (Powercolor Vega 56).
I can't get the bootloader to show when this card is installed, it just gives me a black screen, I assume it has something to do with my config.plist.
I've tried running the config-genconfig but it just gives me a segmentation 11 fault.
I'm running Mojave 10.14.6. I'm really not sure what to do anymore.
Cheers.

@Slice ,How to solve the addressing error of dual network card in ASUS z87-deluxe? When using OC boot, there will be no problem. When using clover boot, from the start log, we can see that there is a problem in clover days. 0:100 0:000 PCI (00|07:00.00) : 10EC 8168 class=020000。 The address of rtl8111 network card is under Intel. Normally, under Realtek, 0:100 0:000 PCI (00| 09:00.00): 14e4 43b1 class = 028000 will be driven.

Any chance of supporting the 5120x1440 native resolution of the Samsung CRG9? It shows in low res when I tried this. Highest 32:9 res I can get working is 3840x1080.

Are you talking about using 5120x1440 in the Clover EFI menu or in macOS?

 

I don't think I've ever seen EFI use anything wider than 3840.

 

SwitchResX can fix macOS - just set the "Scaled resolution base" to 5120x1440. The HDMI and DisplayPort ports may have different EDIDs. HDMI might not have a 5120x1440 timing. If the EDID is missing the 5120x1440 timing then you can create it in SwitchResX. The manual seems to indicate that the HDMI port of the display has the 5120x1440 timing, so this shouldn't be a problem. The display may have different modes that affect the EDID. The display may have different EDIDs between DisplayPort and HDMI ports.

 

You can use my script at https://gist.github.com/joevt/32e5efffe3459958759fb702579b9529 to check and compare all the EDIDs. Use AGDCDiagnose for all the modes and ports (HDMI 1.4/HDMI 2.0, 60Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, FreeSync Standard Engine, FreeSync Ultimate Engine, FreeSync Disabled, DisplayPort 1.2, DisplayPort 1.4).

 

 

/System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/MacOS/AGDCDiagnose -a > AGDCDiagnoseXXX.txt 2>&1

 

(replace XXX in the file name with a description of the connected port and mode).

Then use loadagdcfile to load all the files you created - it combines duplicates so that only unique EDIDs are listed by the listedids commands. Then use 

edidbinall
dumpedidall
decodeall

to save all the EDIDs as binaries, dump, and decode them all. Then you can compare them. See if any are missing the 5120x1440 timing.

I'm using SwitchResX but it doesn't correct the res until a few seconds after you log in, so the login prompts all show at the low res.

I did this at the bottom but the final command just gives me:

Install edid-decode for the decode and decodeall command to work.

https://git.linuxtv.org/edid-decode.git/about/

 

As for getting 5120x1440 in EFI, that would be an interesting project. I've not looked at EFI video drivers much. One thing it will need to do is to be able to read timings from the DisplayID extension blocks of the EDID since the other blocks do not support resolutions wider than 4096. I don't think EFI supports DisplayID blocks. I don't even think it supports CTA blocks.

 

All the code to parse all parts of EDID is in edid-decode. Most of the specs it uses are publicly available. I'm not sure where or how you would apply it to EFI though. I guess Clover would need to override or patch some drivers...

@Slice
thanks for implementing the mask patching to clover .
i am trying to use the mask kernel patches from opencore to clover.
but it doesnt seem to work.

can you confirm that this is correct way of mask patching in clover ? 


       FIND: 833D0000 00000074 008B5DBC
    REPLACE: 00000000 00000100 00000000
   MASKFIND: FFFF0000 00FFFFFF 00FFFFFF
MASKREPLACE: 00000000 00000F00 00000000

 

I tested and somehow changed the possibility to patch kernel with masks.

The above syntax is good and the patching works.

The debug message said success

Снимок экрана 2020-03-16 в 7.24.34.png

 

And I see the result of changing kernel

Снимок экрана 2020-03-16 в 7.25.11.png

I changed the kernel message.

 

Test today commit 4618b74d1a9818a6fb5581b84957d7b6b5faa899

Hi @Slice

 

Yesterday, I update r5105 48b175 to r5105 5ed385d, without reboot. This morning, I have no Clover GUI only black screen.

 

Do you think is a Clover problem or macOS issue? I rebuild several time kernel cache from a working USB stick (5104), don't works. There is a message Error Kernel cache 0x09.

 

Needs help! Please.

I am not sure what is the problem you encountered.

 

Sorry for my bad english. I posted some other details in Clover general topic.

 

This morning:

  • r5105 5ed385d: black screen at start without Clover GUI.
  • r5105 48b175: all works fine.

 

Maybe a macOS Mojave issue?.

Same issue with r5105 ce86d7f: no Clover GUI, only Black screen at start. I've to rollback again to working previous version r5105 48b175.

 

I don't understand why.

I try and report.

 

EDIT: @Slice

Despite <key>Log</key> to <true/>, all debug key to true in config.plist, I can't generate debug.log. Maybe because I build release r5105 ce86d7f

      Script file to clone Clover, Opencore (official and unofficial) repos
      Script will create link to itself in /usr/local/bin/bob
      Wouldn't hurt to check there are no "Bob"'s there, i "Hope" there isn't.
      Then you only need to type bob. and a parameter
      "n" for NDK repo, unofficial
      "a" for ACID repo, official
      "c" for CLOVER
      It also takes "all" for ALL, if your game
       
      Easier typing bob than.....usual stuff
      Enjoy

      My PROBLEM: I followed the Plain Vanilla guide (https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide/) to a T in creating the OS X Catalina installer USB. I'm totally new to Hackintosh, and just want an Apple environment to Time Machine migrate my files and system from my ageing MacBook Pro. When I start to use the USB on the target PC (Dell Inspiron 3847 desktop), I ONLY see the Microsoft (which is the original OS, and on a SEPARATE Hard drive from where I want to install Mac OS), ZERO option for installing the OSX Catalina! Please SEE PICTURE link: https://imgur.com/a/FnLB2Q9   I'm a beginner, but I tried to google my problem. The answers were either incomplete, hard for me to understand and put into action, or were outdated and applied to older OSXs.

      Hi, I'm kind of lost when scrolling to Clover Configurator, so I decided to use an EFI from the web and just configure the most basic stuff. But that sadly didn't work, im always getting the attached screen IMG_0054.HEIC (and I don't know whether all the errors are listed, as I can't scroll). 
      Anyways I thought it'd be better to do a custom setup. Can anyone give me some help with what to choose in the settings? Here's my rig:
      i7 8700k
      Asus z370-G (Rog Strix)
      gtx 1060 6gb
      samsung ssd (SATA)
      WD hard drive
       
      Your help would be much appreciated!

      A big thanks to wegface for teaching me a lot of things.
       
       
      Tested on Catalina 10.15.4 and Clover EFI 5104 (Catalina Patcher)
       
      Not Working:
      - realtek sd card reader (pm me if you have a fix)
       
      Notes:
      **CPU patches are disabled, if you are using a locked BIOS you must enable them**
       
      Clover EFI:
      - Install it in UEFI Mode and change your hdd partition table to GPT.
      - You will be able to install ANY OS in EFI mode, even if this pc does not support EFI at all! (No guide available for this)
       
      You will need:
      My unlocked BIOS (OPTIONAL) (here) Latest Clover config from CCE Bank (here) (asus k53sj-kylon) Rehabman Voodoo PS2 Controller (here) acidanthera AppleALC (here) acidanthera Lilu (here) acidanthera VirtualSMC (here) acidanthera SMCBatteryManager (here) acidanthera SMCLightSensor (here) acidanthera WhateverGreen (here) Mieze Realtek RTL8111 (here)
