hi...

is this script valid for the "Catalina" ?

 

curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Gengik84/MacOS_Updater/master/MacOS_Updater && chmod +x ./MacOS_Updater && sh ./MacOS_Updater

Hey guys, I’m on the business trip and nowhere near a computer can any of you check if the cpu_max_limit of 64 cores is still there in the kernel?

Well, kext injection usually breaks with major OS versions. Mojave was pretty quick to get up and running last year. Hopefully it won't take long to fix Catalina.

EDIT: Please see https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4938/

 

Looks like the logic has slightly been changed, please try this kernel patch (temporarily) with Clover KernelToPatch:

 

find

00 85 C0 0F 84 87 00 00 00 49

 

repl

00 85 C0 90 90 90 90 90 90 49

 

Hopefully Clover kext injection works after patching, if it does, I will update the source.

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR HFS+ partition.
       
      Please read Readme-10.15.pdf first.
       
      How to finish the Catalina installation.
      1. Use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make USB Catalina Installer.
      2. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Disk Utility, format as MBR HFS+. 
          Install Catalina to blank MBR HFS+ "Target" partition.
      3. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Terminal, run the script command:
          copytempdata
      4. Boot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition on single user mode (-s), run the script command:
          hfsupdatecache
      5. Reboot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition, setup user name and login, finish the installation.
       
      Also, you need to setup Clover as BooterConfig=0x28, CsrActiveConfig=0x67
       
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      List of known issues:
      1. iCloud Drive need APFS to work.
      2. Some app-pkg-installers can't install to HFS+, but install to APFS fine.
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
      1. Pass the MBR check, allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR partition.
      2. Pass the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
      3. Pass auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.15.
      4. This MBR-Manual-Method will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition.
      5. This MBR-Manual-Method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery).
      No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
       
      What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method?
      As the following....
      1. createinstallmedia method,
          needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format.
      2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12),
          install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR HFS+ and GUID HFS+, will never convert the partition format.
          We can manually format as MBR HFS+ or GPT HFS+ on installation screen like as 10.12.
          We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 on installation screen now.
          Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 future versions, I think so.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version.
      3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+),
          End of MBR and HFS+, there is no more MBR HFS+ patch available for 10.15 native OSInstaller.

      How to make 10.15 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?
      Just use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
      Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q4. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave, Catalina?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
       
      And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
       

       
      Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

      Working in Progress
       
      I want  that my Catalina  runs smooth
       
      I run Catalina beta on MBr HFS+ (only one partition)
       
      So what we can do ?
       
      0. I have gained my Intel HD3000 QE/CI working
         - i have used Intel HD3000 High Sierra Kexts
          Done
       
      1. Reduce size
        -  I have used monolingual and I have deleted all unwanted languages
        - i have deleted unwanted Speech voices
        - i have delete unwanted Fonts ( Japanese , Chinese, Emoji ...) 
        - i have delete unwanted Templates ( again speech voices)
        My Cat OS have been shrinked  from 16 Gb to 9,96 Gb
        Done
       
      2. Disable all unwanted Deamons and Agents
        -  I'm looking for disable all Debug deamons or Agents running which are slowing my Os

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.
