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.

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?

      I was inspired by @duduclx post for installing El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6410, so I decided to install Mojave 10.14.5.  Everything works perfectly except for sleep.  I'm starting this thread hoping to help others install Mojave on their E6410s and to diagnose and resolve the sleep issue.  This thread is not currently intended to be an installation guide and is better suited to the intermediate/advanced hackintosher.  Eventually, it may evolve into a guide.
       
      I started with this thread (Many thanks, @duduclx !!!) and ended up with the system captured in the attached files.  The keys were to change the LPCB._DSM.Name to "3b09" and remove all CLOVER configs not necessary for Mojave, plus some other items mentioned below.
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) MacOS: Mojave 10.14.5 (APFS) (Patched with DosDude Mojave Patcher 1.3.3) MacModel: MacBookPro 6,2 (LPCB._DSM.Name "pci8086,3b09") Kexts: Lilu 1.3.6, VoodooHDA 2.9.2, AirportBrcmFixup 2.0.0, IntelMausiEthernet 2.4.1d1, ACPIBatteryManager 1.90.1, BrcmPatchRam2.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, VoodooPS2Controller (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad" version - release 5, not the original version), USBInjectAll (with custom SSDT-UIAC) Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (with AirportBrcmFixup.kext) CLOVER (Legacy): R4961  
      Configuration items that may be different from what you have seen in other E6410 configurations
      LPCB._DSM patched with device-id "3b09" AND "name", "pci8086,3b09" for native Nehalem power management with MacBookPro 6,2 ECDV renamed to EC so that AppleBusPowerController loads AGP.VID._DSM patched with device-id "0a29" so that AppleGraphicsPowerManagement loads  No CLOVER Generate P or Generate C States (with the correct LPCB._DSM and MacBookPro 6,2, these CLOVER options are unnecessary for this architecture and only limit max multiplier and reduce number of P states) DSDT patched to include HDAU device (device-id 0x0be3)  
      What is NOT working:
      Sleep (display goes blank, but power light stays on.  System cannot wake and must be forced off with power button) Display brightness can be controlled with keyboard keys, but cannot be controlled with slider in Display settings.  The slider appears in Display settings (because of the backlight DSDT injection in AGP.VID._DSM), but the slider doesn't work (yet).  Haven't spent time to figure this out, but would love help. Graphics Power Management - AGPM loads (because 10de,0a29 device is injected), but there's no evidence that 3100m frequency and voltage is changing.
        What is NOT tested:
      SD Card Slot Smartcard Reader eSata (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Firewire Port (it does appear in the Network settings, just haven't tried it) Microphone Jack PC Card Slot (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Camera (I have this disabled in my BIOS)  
      What IS working:
      Everything else not mentioned above.   Speedstep/CPUPowerManagement is perfect, system temps are low, CPU multiplier operates as expected, battery life is long Shutdown is fast Display/graphics acceleration is perfect (thanks to DosDude's Mojave patcher) Brightness (adjusted with brightness keys on keyboard) works perfectly Battery Manager works (battery status is displayed in menu bar) simply by installing ACPIBatterManager.kext. Wi-Fi (after changing to Broadcom BCM94352HMB and installing AirportBrcmFixup.kext) Audio (volume adjustable, volume indicator appears in menu bar).  Switched to VoodooHDA from AppleALC after AppleALC caused slow boot due to "IOHDACodecFunction timeout." Ethernet port (with IntelMausiEthernet.kext) Broadcom BCM20702A0 Bluetooth (with BrcmPatchRam2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext) Optical Drive External VGA (with corrected NVCAP.  Need NVCAP 04000000 00000100 0E000000 00000007 00000000 (credit: @PlutoDelic) for working external VGA display. Headphone jack Display Port (tested using DP > HDMI adapter)  
      Known issues and their solutions
      AAPL,clock-id and device_type do not appear in IORegistry for EHC1.  Solution is to use CLOVER on-the-fly patching/fixing/renaming for EHC1 and EHC2.  This has been completed and tested, but does not fix the sleep behavior.  This fix is not reflected in the attached files. ALPS trackpad performance is not good with the "standard" VoodooPS2Controller.kext that I initially used.  Switching to the "Refined ALPS TouchPad driver" is a big improvement.  I've implemented and tested this on my system.  The ALPS version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext mixes up a few keys.  Need to switch the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) and change keyboard type to ISO European.  The updated VoodooPS2Controller.kext is not reflected in the attached files. This proposed configuration uses an injected device-id (10de,0a29) for NVidia 3100m to get AGPM to load.  While I haven't observed any performance differences, a better approach may be to inject AGPM properties for device 10de,0a6c (the actual device-id for the 3100m).  This AGPM method is discussed later in this thread.  I have briefly tested this "FakeSMC.kext method" for injecting AGPM attributes without any noticeable changes in laptop/graphics behavior and have not updated attached files to reflect this change. IOHWControl is not loaded under AGPM (Should be AGP > VID > NVDA,Display-A@0 > NVDATesla > AGPM > gpu-control > IOHWControl as viewed in IORegistryExplorer).  It is loaded on a real MacBookPro6,2 running Mojave and is loaded on this Dell Latitude E6410 running High Sierra.  If I "Inject NVidia" via CLOVER, IOHWControl loads properly.  I have made this change and am testing it on my system, but have not updated the attached configuration files. The Dell Latitude DSDT (BIOS A17) has a bug in Method (GNOT).  In the method, the expression  If (LOr (LGreater (OSYS, 0x07D0), LLess (OSYS, 0x07D6))) always evaluates to TRUE, so the patched DSDT has no dependency on the value of OSYS.  I suspect that LOr should be replaced with LAnd, so that this expression is TRUE for variants of Windows 2001 and False for any other OS.  While this may have no affect on MacOS, it makes one wonder how such an obvious bug made it through Dell QA and is still present in BIOS A17.  Also makes one wonder whether the sleep problem (which no one has solved) was fixed in Windows to address another DSDT bug. The DSDT patch that duduclx refers to as "Intel GMA Ready" in his El Capitan Guide is not applied correctly to the DSDT attached to this post.  Somehow, the contents of patched _DSM are located in the PCI0.VID device instead of in Method (_DSM) within the PCI0.VID device.  MaciASL didn't complain about this, so it went unnoticed, but it doesn't appear to have had any affect.  I have completely removed this "Intel GMA Ready" patch from my DSDT since it is not necessary for Dell Latitude E6410's with NVidia 3100m, but have not updated the attached DSDT. The assigned value of ACOS in the DSDT is conditional on the operating system.  There is no condition for "Darwin."  The solution is to add a condition for "Darwin" (making it equivalent to one of the defined operating systems (e.g. Linux, Win7, etc), analogous to the assignment of OSYS.  I made this change in my DSDT (not yet reflected in the attached files), but have not observed any behavioral differences (sleep or otherwise).  EDIT: Another way to handle this might be to override _OSI with XOSI (defined in a custom SSDT).  Still learning about XOSI and haven't yet drawn a conclusion.  I'm currently experimenting with ACOS and OSYS equivalent to Win7 and Linux (manually patched in my DSDT which has not yet been updated as a new attachment to this post). The portType of the Internal Bluetooth device is portType=0 which, according to Rehabman's comments in SSDT-UIAC-All.dsl, is an external USB 2 port.  I believe that this should be an internal USB port (portType=2).  My custom SSDT-UIAC.dsl is wrong.  I just learned through trial and error that the HUB1 and HUB2 definitions in Rehabman's SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl apply to the ports on the EHCx USB hubs.  The solution is to include the HUB1 definition in SSDT-UIAC.dsl and change portType to 2 for HP15.  I have not attached an updated SSDT-UIAC.aml to this first post, but my current EFI includes an updated SSDT-UIAC.aml with ports HP15, 16 17 and 18 set to internal (portType = 2).  This change doesn't appear to affect/fix sleep, but it may prevent instant wake if we get sleep working.  
      Brief Installation Guide (for the experienced Hackintosher):
      Follow duduclx's guide for BIOS config Create your MacOS installer USB (Use DosDude's Mojave Patcher for Mojave) (start with High Sierra and not Mojave if you're new to hackintosh). Install CLOVER (Legacy) on installer USB using attached EFI as your guide for patched ACPI, kexts and config.plist Install MacOS to your SSD.  When you run DosDude's Mojave Patcher, DO NOT install LegacyUSBInjector.kext - you're going to use Rehabman's USBInjectAll.kext. Install the following kexts in /Library/Extensions:  ACPIBatteryManager.kext, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakeSMC.kext, FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext, FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, Lilu.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad driver," not the original) Switch Command and Option keys to compensate for Refined ALPS driver issue (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys).  Also change keyboard type to ISO European to fix the [ ` ~ ] key (to the left of the "1" (one) key. Install VoodooHDA Install HWMonitor application

      I have E6540 working almost perfectly fine with Mojave 10.14.5 except for couple of things:-
       
      1- HDMI audio not syncing properly with TV ! I never had that issue.
      2- Webcam is not working and I need it for meetings and stuff.
       
      I have attached my fully working EFI.zip also the clover origin dump E6540_origin.zip files.
       
      I am also wondering is it possible now to get the E6540 to work with the AMD Radeon HD 8790M instead of the Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 but also get the HDMI working the with TV?

      I have been running macOS Mojave on my system for 3 months and everything was working pretty well.  After taking an update for clover, my entire system got wrecked, and I cannot even boot to an installation environment anymore (which I really need to do since I am starting back at square one).  I still have the old EFI folder backed up, but I know it'll only be a matter of time before Apple introduces an update that requires me to update Clover in order to work correctly.  I have tried all the available memory fixes, but none of them seem to work.  I was previously using the original osxaptiofix; so, I gave v2, and v3 a try, but to no success.  I read somewhere on the main discussion board for clover that AptioMemoryFix was no longer going to be supported and I therefor decided to skip over it (not to mention it isn't even available in newer clover installation packages).
       
      System specs:
      Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 M GAMING
      CPU Intel core i5 9600k @ stock 3.7GHz
      RAM 32GB DDR4 2667MHz
      GPU AMD Radeon RX 580 with 8GB of GDDR5
      SSD Intel 660p 512GB NVME
      NIC: Intel i210 10/100/1000 as it is natively supported in macOS
       
      I have been using the iMac 19,1 SMBIOs as I built this machine to match it as close as humanly possible.  As for my UEFI settings, I did the usual:
      Disabled Windows specific features and secure boot
      Enabled XHCI hand off
      Enabled Above 4G decoding
      Disabled onboard NIC since it is made irrelevant by my intel i210

      Anyway, if somebody can help me figure out what's going on, that'd be greatly appreciated.  My ultimate goal is to get an install with minimal clover patches as to be better prepared when the winds of change from Apple come roaring.
