Is my hackintosh fully functional?

Guys, i'll be honest right here: my question may (and probably) sound stupid, but i feel i gotta ask, haha:

 

What should i check to know if my hack is fully functional as it should?

What do you guys check to know yours is working as it should?

 

This question crossed my mind a few days ago and i'm gonna tell why. First of all, here is my hack specs:

 

Intel i5 4690 3.5ghz

Gigabyte H97M-D3H

8GB RAM DDR3 1333mhz 

GTX760 2GB RAM GDDR5

SSD 120GB Corsair LS

HDD 1TB Seagate

D-Link DWA-131 Rev.E WiFi Dongle

MacOS High Sierra 10.3.3

 

Installation and pos-installation:

- all that BIOS settings we all know.

- createmediainstall with a official AppStore DMG + latest Clover (--converttoapfs NO via terminal)

(everything went fine, not a single bootflag had to be set in order to install or boot)

- latest Clover

- ALC892 kext

- latest FakeSMC 

- Nvidia official drivers

- SSD Trim enabled via terminal

- updated everything via AppStore

 

What i know so far about my own hack:

- boot. OK

- shutdown, restart, sleep, wake up. OK

- audio (including after wake up from sleep). OK

- AppStore. OK

- Internet access. OK

- USB ports. OK, but is it working as it should?

 

So far i did not experienced considerable freezes, no crashes or kernel panics at all.

 

What does not work:

- iMessage, FaceTime and AirDrop. (I'm not concerned, i know iMessage and FaceTime could be easily

fixed and i know it does not work due to my WiFi dongle, same about AirDrop. I bought a BCM943602CS

adapter from China, it didn't arrive yet but it's on the way and it should work out of box so far i know.)

- Brightness adjustment keys on Apple keyboard, probably due my AOC screen, but i don't mind.

- Apple wired keyboard USB ports doesn't work, OS always says it needs more power. Not a big deal,

it seems to be annoying Apple customers as well but what does bother me is: it is not working because

it's lame anyway or it's something about usb power management?

 

So how can i know if everything else is fully working as it should? PowerManagement, Audio, USB 

and SSD speeds etc. I didn't have a DSDT, should i? That's it... I'm really sorry if i'm being stupid.

 

Thanks in advance,

best regards from Brazil.

replace, reboot and send me new files with new folder

attachicon.gifCLOVER.zip

Install Web drivers

 

Thanks for the fast replying and help, MaLd0n.

I'll do it tonight. Could you tell me what did you notice with my files and what's going to be changed? It would be very helpful for learning purposes.

 

By the way, you mean Nvidia Web Drivers? I've been told it's not working properly with 10.3.3, that's why I didn't install it yet. Whatever, I'll follow your advices.

Alright, MaLd0n, i did what you say.

 

- Replaced my CLOVER folder with yours.

- Installed "InsanelyMacWebDriver(OsxBuild_17C205)-378.10.10.10.25.104.pkg"

- Rebooted

- Patched the Nvidia Web Driver with the patch you posted.

- Rebooted.

 

I also ran that RunMe.app again and here is the generated files:

Send me users-iMac(2).zip

 

Again, i'd love to know what did you see in these files for the first time and what you're trying

to improve on my hack, so i can learn.

 

I'll be glad to pay you that beer after all ;)

 

Tks

Oh man, it works! (Keyboard brightness adjustment keys). I had to change some things on my display's settings, but it works.

And now my Apple Keyboard USB Ports are working as it should, with the right power management.

I feel sad coz' i tried to pay you a beer on PayPal but my account is brazilian and even with a international credit card the magic is not happening.

Let me know if there's another way to donate ;)

 

A few last things to know:

- What's the deal with that Nvidia patcher? Should i apply it every time i install or update their official drivers?

- About the USB power management, it's all about that USBInjectAll.kext or should i patch something else in my config.plist?

- My config.plist has changed for sure! It seems a lot of unused things were deleted. I'm kinda lost now, what exactly have you changed?

 

 

I'm really sorry for taking your time with newbie stuff and asking a lot, but it's very important to me to learn and do it by myself next time,

and of course, spread the knowledge. Thanks!
