NOVPAJPEG.kext worked flawlessly, question is, how future proof is it? Could it break something in the future with mac os updates?

Personally, I don't think so. I don't think it will break anything. Worst case scenario, it might stop working at some point. But that will probably be fixed with an update. I guess we'll have to wait and see. :) And if that fails, you'll always have one of the other options to fix this issue. So, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

 

Personally, I'm not using it. I tried it. For some reason it didn't work for me. Changing the SMBIOS or activating the iGPU in BIOS did the trick though. So, as I said, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Hello

 

I wanted to share my results, as I was reading this forum post for having the same issue with Finder now previewing any Jpeg files.

 

i disabled the integrated intel graphics in my bios to resolve the issue.

 

Quick and easy solution id have to admit ;-)

That might be quick and easy for you. :) But it's definitely not a solution for everyone.

 

What's your SMBIOS? Some of them (such as MacPro5, MacPro6, iMacPro) do work without an iGPU. But whether or not it's enabled in BIOS, should not affect anything, since in many cases, the iGPU is not even recognised. :)) Still, I'm curious to know what's your current SMBIOS.

Hi i'm having the same problems. Quicklook / Preview won't open jpeg/jpg files. I've added NOVPAJPEG.kext I tried changing the SMBIOS nothing worked for me. Do I need to do something special for the kext to work?

Well, you've got multiple options. And your setup is actually very similar to mine. So I guess I have some experience with that.

 

Let's start with: which SMBIOS are you currently using?

If you went for iMac14,2 for example or even iMac18,3 make sure the iGPU is enabled in BIOS (you can easily enable it by going under dual-monitor and enabling that option). Add 64MB for the iGPU and that's all. Make sure you use WhateverGreen.kext so your computer doesn't freeze on certain websites.

 

Alternatively, you can simply use a MacPro5 or MacPro6,1 SMBIOS and you won't have to worry about the iGPU anymore, since those don't have iGPUs in the first place.

 

So, if you're going the SMBIOS route, make sure you either enable the iGPU in BIOS and use WEG, or use an SMBIOS like the ones for Mac Pro or iMac Pro which don't require you to enable the iGPU.

 

I actually tried the NoVPAJpeg kext myself and just like you, it didn't do anything for me. Maybe I missed something, maybe there are other reasons why it didn't work. I didn't have the time to investigate that. But personally, I already have at least 2 other methods to get this to work. :) And I already described them for you above.

I can't find iGPU in BIOS. In Graphics it only allows me to choose between IGD or PEG

Below I can specify shared memory and IGD Multi-Monitor. Similar to the screenshot.

Yeah, I was suggesting trying to set IGD Multi-monitor to Enabled.

@arsradu It worked :D

I changed to MacPro6,1 in SMBIOS and it's working the preview. Hurray. Thank you so much.

 

Glad to hear that. :)

@arsradu Another question. When you put the computer to sleep, did you ever lose sound after waking?

 

That is not related to this topic. Depending on what method are you using for sound (hopefully Lilu + AppleALC), you can try different Layout IDs. :) Some of them have EAPD enabled and you shouldn't lose sound after sleep. Alternatively, you can get CodecCommander.kext, put it in S/L/E (doesn't work from Clover/kexts/Other) and it should have the same effect. I personally had issues with it under Mojave, so I chose one of the other Layouts in order to fix this issue.

 

Now, unfortunately, your motherboard uses a different codec than mine, so I can't suggest the same Layout ID that worked for me. But what I can suggest is taking a look at the list of supported codecs from here and trying a different one than the one you currently have. Your codec is ALC 887, so choose one of these Layout IDs: 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 18, 33, 50, 99

 

Also, select ResetHDA in your Clover config. Might help with that.

For more information on AppleALC, here's the official thread: 

 

 

Also, in case you want to discuss the flashing during boot issue which you probably have with that RX 580 (if you don't, I would be VERY interested to know more details), feel free to share your experiences here: 

You're definitely not the only one with that issue.

 

If I can help you with anything else related to this topic, please, let me know.

 

Also, while we're at it, I would recommend using the Edit feature when you want to add something and nobody else replied to you. Otherwise you will create a lot of different posts, which may look a bit spammy. :) Just a suggestion.

 

And welcome to the forum! :)

 

Cheers!

Hi there!

I have RX570 and SMBIOS iMac 18.3.

Also got problem with Preview app. Tried to enable iGPU: Preview start working but audio(alc887) stops :). Using NoVPAJpeg also help with Preview but hackintosh boots good only in verbose mode. Without verbose it reboot automatically when gpu drivers are loading during boot process. Sometimes it can boot successfully in second attempt. 

Does anybody know the solution of problems above?

Are you using VirtualSMC? If so go back to FakeSMC + NoVPAJpeg, if not enable IGPU and work out audio issue. Latest kexts? Correct layout? Tried different ones?

Not sure they're related. But if you feel like they are, just enable the iGPU in BIOS, use WhateverGreen and remove NoVpaJpeg kext. Or, use a MacPro/iMacPro SMBIOS to fix the Preview issue and you won't need NoVPGAJpeg in the first place.

I cannot speak for the automatic reboots. If you don't have that already enabled, you should probably try enabling KernelPM in Kernel & Kext Patches of your Clover config.

My display card is RX560, which SMBIOS I should choice? anyone have idear?

 

You can use the MacPro/iMacPro SMBIOS, as I suggested above.

 

Also, it would be nice to know what other hardware components do you have. So I would recommend adding that information to your signature. :)

I use FakeSMC. All kexts are of the latest versions.

I didn't fix the problem with audio with enabled iGPU. Tried all supported layouts.

 

Finally, I use NoVPAJpeg.kext with enabled InjectATI flag in config (before used RedeonDeinit only). It fixed auto reboots during boot process and Preview app works fine.

thank you so much! MacPro SMBIOS is work for me!

By the way, 10.14.1 usb 3.0 is not working, how can I do?

The USB port limit patch issue is off-topic but here's the new patch for your USB ports:

 

Name: com.apple.driver.usb.AppleUSBXHCI

Find: 83FB0F0F 838F0400 00

Replace: 83FB0F90 90909090 90

 

If you have more questions about the USB ports you can post them here:

OP thanks for your help!

I'm trying to go with the SMBIOS route, since I'm on i7 2600 non k with GT640

I chose Mac Pro 5.1 but I can't boot as I'm stuck at com.apple.driver.AppleTyMCEDriver kernel panic. I googled and it said I have no ECC RAM. How can I get past this KP?

Or can I still get offline VDA from my i7 2600? VDA works in High Sierra.

Maybe try MacPro3,1 instead?

      Hello, im FZ, been in hackintosh community since mac os X lion years. Please consider me noob. i have helped hackintoshed pc of my friends and family. i ran el capitan, sierra, high sierra on below spec.
      I lost some interest in hackintoshing from past 1 year now im back again cuz of mojave.
      Lets start.
       
      I posted this issue in Nvidia Topic for discussion but decided not to post until i could get some bug log out of it... but. eh.
       
      Well ive Kepler based gt 710 card.
      Issues:
      Black Screen when booting with default drivers or nvda_drv=1 mode
      OR
      White/Grey Screen with 1 sec mouse movement then freezed keyboard and mouse with nv_disable=1.
        
      Tested:
      tried numerous ways to boot Mojave but does not works such as >
      High Sierra/Sierra default Apple geforce nvda kexts, High Sierra Web Drivers, various clover configs, display edids, HDMI dvi port tests... so on.
       
      Specs:
      Tri Boot Setup:
      Windows 10, Sierra(gt 710 works OOB, or with Web Drivers too), Mojave.
      ASUS P5G41TM LX
      Core2Duo E8500
      Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce GT 710 2GB
       
       
      I couldn't managed to get logs as half part of installation is still incomplete i.e Mojave installed from USB to HDD after but cant get into login/setup screen due to above mentioned black screen issue.
       
      I will try to be as detailed as possible.
       
      i had no mac device or any macos dmg/iso to install mojave so performed some steps in windows.
       
      Steps i performed:
      1. I downloaded Mojave 10.14.1 iso file from Olarila.com which is a complete raw image of Mojave USB stick as the post title says **The image is clean, without any mod with Clover bootloader, essentials kexts and patches inside Clover folder**. Which comes with this OLIRALA_MOJAVE_USB_EFI.zip which i backed up(see attachment OLIRALA_MOJAVE_USB_EFI.zip)
      2. made usb in windows with win32diskimager
      3. booted from usb and got kernel panic 
      4. swapped usb EFI folder with Olarila Clover EFI for LGA 775 (see attachment CLOVER.LGA775.OLARILA.zip)
      5. booted from usb susccesfully till install screen but throws macOs Mojave could not be installed on this computer
      6. i was fed up trying workarounds , i knew i need newer mac ids in clover config.plist to make it install 
      7. i downloaded Olarila Sierra from same site flashed in another usb stick and it worked out of box without messing any kext or kind.
      8. added SMBIOS iMac13,1 in config.plist with clover configurator. 
      9. booted from usb and succesfully installed Mojave with HFS+ partition on MBR partitioned HDD(dual booting with windows 10) 
      10. booted from usb to complete partial installation of Mojave but got black screen. 
       
      For getting all kernel, bug, kext logs i tried Problem Reporting script of black-dragon74 https://github.com/black-dragon74/OSX-Debug which requires active internet connection which is not possible, I tried to mod the script to run local but im not good at bash and it went in errors. I will do provide mojave logs manually from single user -x mode if i can. 
      Ok I managed to run the script locally in single go and it went well problem_reporting_mojave10_14_1_debug_27676.zip
      if any wants to have a look at script i modded gen_debug_local.sh
       
       
      some other files
      Patched DSDT.aml.zip
      currentCloverEFI.zip
      /CLOVER/misc.zip
      EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin.zip
      problem_reporting_mojave10_14_1_debug_27676.zip

      Hi,
       
      I'm new to the world of hackintosh and need some advice on how to get my Nvidia card 960 working as when High Sierra loads I have only 7mb, If I inject the Nvidia it goes to the resolution I want but then I have 0mb.  
      The High Sierra Version is 10.13.6 17G65. I have installed the latest nvidia driver and cuda driver 
      387.10.10.10.40.105 I have tried in clover configurator and ticking nvidia=1 as suggest on some forums but then I end up with a blurred background and no login box and the system hangs, If I upgrade to the latest version of clover 4741, i jest get a black screen before I get to the menu options so I am currently using 4463
       
      if it helps the motherboard is a gigabytes z170 xp-sli with an intel 660k 
      High sierra is being install on an external 128GB SSD
      Thanks for you help

      Hello Everyone !
      I successfully instant Mojave on my Pc. Everything works fine except sleep. When I click sleep, it instantly sleep and restart right after cpu fan stop. I attached the MadLon Run Me here. Hope someone can help.
      I did delete PowerManager in Library/Preferences but still no hope
      My spec: 
      Asrock z370 itx Gaming 
      i5 8600k 
      32GB corsair LPX
      Samsung 950 nvme
       
      The problem may because I changed my MSI z370 a-pro atx to Asrock itx. Before that the system runned perfectly fine with the MSI mainboard.
