Install Xcode from the app store and it includes a plist editor, so when you just open your config.plist it will open in the plist editor.

Thank you.

Kinda relevant but kinda not. How can I correct my bios time to local time and stop macOS from changing it so that my themes change colour at the right times.

 

I ask because if I set my Timezone in GUI to +10.30 (South Australia Daylight Savings time) at 6:30 pm local time I get the dark (night) GUI for BGM_SVG instead of the daylight one. So I must be doing something wrong. If I add +10.30 to my bios time it is correct with local time but after booting into macOS my bios reverts back. So my question is how to make either macOS use local time and not change bios or what Timezone information do I need to add to clover GUI to make it local time.

 

Found a fix for macOS to bring it inline with other operating systems.

With this i can set my bios to local time and macOS uses bios time instead of changing it to UTC.

Timezone in Clover should be integer value, sorry! You have to set 10 or 11 and see daylight from 8:30 to 20:30 in local time. 

Thanks Slice, So for my Timezone +10:30 what would I need to add?

I don’t see integer in Xcode or plistedit pro

You should have changed Windows to use UTC time as almost every OS does this with hardware time, except windows, and apparently ubuntu (and its derivatives) when windows is present. Set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation\RealTimeIsUniversal=1 in registry. Also even if you wanted a half hour offset, that would be 10.5, but it only uses integers, so as slice said, choose 10 or 11.

I have added config screenshot where are visible setting for theme Clovy.

 

Theme switches from night mode to day mode at 09.00 (GMT+1). Is there a possibility to change this to an earlier time.

Thanks in advance for help.

@Slice

 

Vector themes are currently drawn differently depending on whether the selection is on top or not.

 

Clovy theme has:
- bounding box for selection_big set at 144px wide
- bounding box for OSIcons set at 128px wide
- SelectionOnTop="0"


As SelectionOnTop is not set

 

In ParseSVGIcon()

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4819/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/libeg/VectorGraphics.c#l107

 

MainEntriesSize is taken from selection_big so ends up being 144px. But, row0TileSize is then also set to the same 144px which results in the following layout, which as Badruzeus pointed out, is not centred.

 

1_Clover_Proper_Clovy_Proper_BELOW.thumb.jpg.3f040426629963905ea85a760c783bfd.jpg


However, if I change:
SelectionOnTop="1"

 

In ParseSVGTheme()

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4819/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/libeg/VectorGraphics.c#l406

 

row0TileSize is set to 144px * scale and MainEntriesSize is set to 128px * scale which results in this layout which is centred.

Which is the intended correct result?

Sure, visually.


But I think what I meant with my question was is it correct that Clovy's selection_big BoundingRect (144px) is larger then the actual selection image (128px)?

This, in turn then sets row0TileSize (as selection is below) to the same size of the BoundingRect which affects the spacing when drawn.

Oh, probably not. I personally think that the design of the vector themes is wrong. It really shouldn't rely on specific sizes since the whole point of the vector themes is to scale appropriately across any display size. It should rely on percentages of how much the screen an item should use, relying on specific sizes is going to cause problems because you'll have to use those sizes for each item. This is the exact issue with raster themes currently. I think there just is not enough understanding that this should be done like a web layout. Even more still a very strange size was selected for the default screen size, one that is not supported by every display... If this was to be done this way, the correct size should have been 1024x768, since it is the only size that needs to be required by the drawing protocols. But like I said, I'm not even going to attempt to do anything with the GUI anymore, it's beyond a mess and SVG support is severely crippled. I am of the belief that just because something exists and is easy to incorporate does not make it the best choice, or even a good choice against writing something the way you need it to behave....

Change the timezone to a different offset like if you want it to happen at 0500, then choose -3.

I set Timezone yesterday to config.plist at -3.
Now in Slovenia, 07.40 in the morning, even the Clovy theme is not confused, but it still says the night.

You are totally right, but we have what we have so that's what I've got to play with.

In the case of SelectionOnTop we have no selection-big and so can't use it as row0 entry size.

We can use boundingRect but we have many possible row0 icons. Which one should be used to measure geometry?

May be claim os_mac to be obligatory and use its geometry? Or vol_internal? I am not sure. os-mac can be used for badges so it can have smaller size.

He said that he set it to +1 and it changed at 0900, so he already has firmware hardware time that is same as localtime, I was just giving an example that if he wanted to change it to earlier that he needs to change the offset to subtract from 0800. Now he will get 1100 as daytime since before he said +1 was changing at 0900. He does not need a timezone to get change at 0800.

Because

 

In ParseSVGIcon()

 

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4819/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/libeg/VectorGraphics.c#l107

 

MainEntriesSize is taken from selection_big so ends up being 144px. But, row0TileSize is then also set to the same 144px which is not correct and results in the icons not being centred.  

But Clovy will be centred if SelectionOnTop="1"

 

BTW. Merry Christmas Slice

      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:

      Disclaimer: All files of this article are from itpwd.com and rehabman ’s github.com

       
      After Testing:
       
      Graphics card: NVIDIA K1000M / K2000M / K2100M / K3000M / K3100M / K4000M / M1000M (ordinary TN1600x900 or 1920x1080), AMD W5170M / W7170M (DC2 or 4K), Intel HD4000 (ordinary TN1600x900 or 1920x1080) can be driven normally, but NVIDIA graphics card Brightness adjustment is disabled. AMD W5170m and w7170m are the best choices on 8570W and 8770W. The brightness can be adjusted normally and the graphics performance is very good. For WX7100m and WX4170m, the graphics card fans cannot be controlled, and other methods are required to control the fans. CPU: 3rd generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 (Ivy Bridge architecture, including all dual-core and quad-core. Celeron and Pentium are not supported), frequency conversion is normal. In general: If you have 8570W, 8770W, and hope you can get the best Hackintosh experience, it is recommended to replace the CPU with i7-3840QM / i7-3940XM, 8570W is recommended to choose W5170M, 8770W, and it is recommended to choose W7170M. In addition: If you want to have a 4K experience or perfect HIDPI, W5170m / W7170M supports 4K output, you can choose a suitable 4K screen to replace, but because 4K screens are mostly edp interface, and 8570W / 8770W motherboard is lvds interface, This requires a custom screen cable, which seems to be a difficult choice, but you can choose to do it yourself or buy it separately. In China, taobao.com is almighty and may be more suitable for you than eBay.
       
      EFI features:
      out of the box, the relevant hardware can be driven after the OS is installed, and it is easy to use without code operation.
      Supported models: HP EliteBook 8470p, 8570p, 8570w, 8770w (click the model for official specifications)
      Wireless network card: Recommended: BCM94360cd (requires ipex4 to ipex1,3 antenna 1300mbps), BCM94352HMB / DW1550 (2 antennas, 867mbps)
      Wireless characteristics: no white list, wireless network card with Bluetooth does not support the Bluetooth function of the wireless network card (also does not need to shield the pins), but the wireless normal use, you need the Bluetooth function to use this machine comes with Bluetooth:
      Clover version: 5103, keyboard mapping has been added Command key = Alt key, Option key = Win key
      Supported systems: macOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G103)-macOS Catalina 10.15.x,
       
      Notes on known issues:
      1. The touchpad and the left and right keys under the touchpad are normal, the pointing stick and the left and right keys above the touchpad are temporarily unavailable (recommended to use the second generation of Apple Magic Trackpad)
      2. Indicator display problem (can be ignored, function is normal): Caps light is sometimes not switched in time, mute / wireless key may be yellow
      3.AMD graphics card / Intel nuclear display has supported sleep and 15 levels of brightness adjustment, NVIDIA has no
      4. If the AMD graphics card enters Huaping, refer to editing the Clover startup parameters, and add the Boot parameter radpg = 15 (the EFI file that has been configured with this parameter has been uploaded, refer to the following EFI-guided download link)
      5. Using the above NVIDIA graphics card with a normal TN screen 1600x900 or 1920x1080 can not enter the installation interface, please check whether the VBiOS of the graphics card is exclusively for HP, thank you for your test face K1000M
      6. Due to product design defects, the MSata positions of 8570w and 8770w cannot be used as boot disks, so EFI boot can only be placed on the main hard disk (turn the machine over and open the hard disk in the lower left corner of the cover, which is the main hard disk). Put on msata plate
      +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
      Hardware requirements:
      Model: 8470p, 8570p, 8570W, 8770W 1 or more, it is recommended to use another notebook for emergency Hard disk: It is recommended to choose an SSD hard disk of 240g or more. Samsung or Intel SATA hard disk is a good choice. Wireless card: BCM94352HMB, DW1550, BCM94360CD, miniPCIe slot U disk: 1 for 16g and above, another winPE emergency USB disk is recommended If you use a rescue USB flash drive, it means that you read this post carefully
       
      Make and install a USB flash drive:
      Get the mirror: please do it your way Making and installing a USB flash drive: macOS command line production is recommended, whether it is a real macOS model or a virtual machine (although this is not allowed to be discussed in many forums)Or you can choose to use TransMac or ether under Windows. This is not recommended, but it is simple enough for those new to Hackintosh. Make boot U disk: If you know how to put the boot into the installation U disk, unzip the EFI file and put it in the EFI partition, or you can choose a fat32 format U disk to store the EFI file separately Note: EFI is an unzipped folder, not a zip or ISO suffix file.
       
      BIOS settings From RehabMan
      To start, set BIOS to defaults.
      Then insure:
      UEFI boot is enabled (hybrid/with CSM for best result) secure boot is disabled disable fast boot IGPU graphics memory set to 64mb, if available disable the serial port via BIOS option, if available disable "LAN/WLAN switching", if available disable "Extended Idle Power States" if you find it under "Power Management Options" disable "Wake on LAN" and "Wake on USB" disable Firewire/IEEE 1394, if your laptop has it for Skylake and KabyLake laptop, enable "Launch Hotkeys without Fn keypress" Note: If you have a laptop with switchable graphics, leave it enabled. You can still use it on Windows, although the discrete card will be disabled when running OS X by the ACPI patches provided here. If you want to also disable it in Windows (via BIOS option), make sure you read about the DGPU option in your model specific SSDT (source is in SSDT-HACK.dsl), as in the scenario where the DGPU is disabled by BIOS, DGPU should be set to zero.
       
      Install:
      Please modify according to the above BIOS settings: Press F9 after booting, select the boot efi to file option, which is generally the last item. Enter your boot USB disk to find the location of cloverx64.efi, select cloverx64.efi, press Enter, and enter the clover boot interface. Select the location of the install entry and press Enter. Enter the macOS interface, use the disk tool to format the partition you need to install to hfs + or apfs format, do not choose the encryption option, this will make your efforts in vain. Note: The disk must be in gpt format, and the remaining EFI space is greater than 200M, 300mb + is recommended. If it is not, please try to modify it in WindowsPE environment. This may cause you to lose the Windows system boot and disk data. Please prepare for backup.
      After formatting the partition successfully, close the disk tool and select install, you will find the partition you installed, and follow the interface prompts. When the installation reaches a certain progress, it will restart. When restarting, select F9, enter from the boot U disk, select the disk partition where you installed macOS (no longer the U disk installation), the installation will continue, and it may restart 2 ~ 3 times Every time, you need F9 to select the boot. After entering the installation interface, except for the first installation, select the U disk, and then select the disk installation partition. Eventually you will enter the settings interface. After following the interface prompts, you will enter the macOS system interface. Remember the system password and turn off the Find my mac option.  
      Post install:
       
      After the installation is complete, you need to hang the EFI partition of the disk, copy the EFI file of the U disk to the EFI partition of the disk, so that you can directly use the disk to boot, otherwise you need to select the U disk to boot each time. The mount tool can choose cloverconfigurator. If after copying the EFI file to the disk, the computer cannot recognize your clover boot, you can use the custom boot option of bios: set the custom boot path to \efi\clover\cloverx64.efi, and set it as the first boot, Use bootice or easyUEFI to increase the clover boot option under Windows and set it as the first boot. If you do not have a wireless network card available temporarily, you can use the USB binding function of your Android phone to share the network. This may require the HoRndis driver. It is not recommended to use a US wireless network card. If you need Windows or Linux, you can install it normally. Be careful not to let Windows overwrite your boot files.  
      For other uses of macOS and brew, please pay attention to forums and other communities. Hackintosh is just the beginning.
       
      Finally, I would like to thank rehabman, vit9696 and others who contributed to Hackintosh. I also thank Cwen for his efforts to modify files and hardware tests. I hope that Hackintosh will be eternal.
       
      Please comply with the laws and regulations of your country or region. My description may not be clear or professional, but I think it is necessary. I think the existence of Hackintosh is everyone's technical hobby and experience macOS, not as a substitute for macOS cheap hardware.

      I built this hack years ago now. Started with Lion, now on El Cap. I want to update now to High Sierra.

      I think I messed up my Clover when I downloaded the update .pkg and just installed it without taking my time or customizing the install. Was on Clover r3423, now I think I'm on r5104

      I've been searching and reading this site and others for a few days before making this thread, but I need help compiling what I've learned to get my system running correctly again and ready to update to High Sierra. Then, eventually, I want to update my graphics card, switch to UEFI (if necessary) and update to Mojave.

      I couldn't get system to boot. Could get to Clover and all the options, except the Shell... I hit enter on the Shell and I get black screen and nothing.

      The only way I got it to boot was to add -v to boot args, and change smbios from 14,2 to 13,2. Not sure why that worked still. Also I'm running two monitors, but I can only now run one of them off the Intel 3000 Graphics and the second one off my GFX Card.

      So now I'm afraid to shut down or reboot.... I could really use some help with Clover.

      I'm pretty sure my config file in Clover is not right. Also, some of the files in my Clover backups are not in the new Clover install. (2.5k 5104)

      If someone could please take a look at the files I've attached and help me sort this out, I would be grateful. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

      I've attached
      - The last boot log
      - The current Clover folder from the EFI partition after performing Clover update. (.zip)
      - The Clover backup that was working before Clover update (.zip)
