So does it run ios apps in intel? Or only apple silicon?

I have this doubt too...

better question, how difficult is it to write a arm -> intel converter that still is able to use advanced gpu cards like the 5700 xt?

Qemu currently does a good job emulating ARM on x86 but performance will not be great. I have played with this, usually the best performance is when you use KVM and run the same arch on both the guest and host.

But that's only the CPU.

 

Ideally we could use a powerful ARM board(something that will be available in the future maybe, maybe Rockchip based) that can use Qemu for ARM64 to efficiently emulate a Macbook. Linux 5.7 has just dropped KVM support for ARM32 but has kept it for ARM64(AArch64) so there is hope there.

 

I was actually thinking maybe Chromebooks might be a usable platform but who knows what GPUs ARM Macs will have. Some Chromebooks are ARM64(AArch64) and then there is the Pinebook 64.

I think the biggest problem is that ARM chips that are available for us regular folks are packaged in custom SoCs with no option on what peripherals to include, but who knows, someone might build a custom SoC just for this!

 

I guess we will just have to wait and see...

"Big Sur" ... Really? ... I mean,... really?

They should've sticked with OSX version numbering in the first place,...lmfao

It's probably an internal joke at headquarters that whoever comes up with the most ridiculous name for the next iteration get's chosen for the actual release candidate...

 

Although I'm long gone from the hackintosh community, I think it's great that ARM is dominating mobile now and coming slowly to desktop too. People are already building rigs with it. It's proven to be a great chipset from what one can read. This will also possibly prevent AMD from becoming the new Intel and just milk the whole market 'cause there's no competition.

 

But seriously,...the names,...

Could've called it "Your Mom"...

Big Sur is a well known place in California.

Hahaha thanks for the clarification Ellybz, I'm sure it's well known to every Californian and a lot of Americans, but the whole world is using MacOS/iOS by now, and it just sounds horrible from an advertising point of view, IMHO.

(Btw, I'm living in Mexico, I was suspecting that it would have something to do with California, but really, they're trying too hard to be cool...)

Again, thanks for the pointer ;)

While Apple has asked developers not to do performance or benchmark tests on their developer kit devices, it was just a matter of hours until those showed up on the Internet.


According to Geekbench 5 scores, it is averaging 835 on Single core, 2800 on multi core. Much lower than other similarly devices, including the recent iPad Pro, but not that bad against the entry MacBook Air.

 

More on the below link.

      - Nothing
       
       
      Disclaimer! 
       
      Bootloaders are currently unable to start the installation.
      The solution is to use a virtual machine and use a physical disk (additional, USB or SATA, NVME) as a target in the installation.
      Change the OpenCore compiled from the source code, and add some entries in NVRAM through config.plist.
       
      This is not the best solution. But it is the only way at the moment. There are some ready-made images available out there, but I prefer not to use them and create a clean installation.
       
       
      What you need to install
       
      - Running install of macOS
      - Already working OpenCore with this setup
      - Create bootable ISO file
      - Spare Disk/SSD
      - macOS Big Sur DP1 install app
      - Latest OpenCore + Kexts compiled from sources
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches
       
       
       
      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock and another with overclock [5.0 GHz]
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup



      How create bootable ISO file
       
      Download Big Sur DP1
       
      Run this command on Temrinal:
      sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Seeding.framework/Resources/seedutil enroll DeveloperSeed Go to System Updater and download the Install macOS Beta app.
       
      Create ISO
       
      Then run on Terminal (One line at a time):
      hdiutil create -size 12G -fs hfs+ -volname install -type SPARSEBUNDLE ~/Desktop/install hdiutil attach ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install --nointeraction hdiutil detach `diskutil list |grep 'Install macOS Beta' |awk '{print $8}'` -force hdiutil makehybrid -o ~/Desktop/install ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle rm -rf ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle
       
      Now you have install.iso on desktop.
       
       
      How create create the virtual machine and install to disk/SSD
       
      Download and install the trial version of the VMware Fusion from their site. I'm used the version 11.5.5.
       
      - Create a custom virtual machine
       

       
      - Operating System: Apple OS X - macOS 10.15
       

       
      - Create a new virtual disk (The size doesn't matter, We'll delete later)
       

       
      - Click in "Customize Settings"
       

       
      - Save the VM on desktop with name: bigsur
       

       
       
      - Insert the spare disk/SSD on PC (reboot if necessary) and identify what /dev/diskX is.
      You can look on Disk Utility.app:

       
      - Create VMDK that point to it:
      sudo diskutil unmountDisk diskX /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/diskX fullDevice ~/Desktop/bigsur.vmwarevm/physical sata - Edit the virtual machine settings created previously
       

       
      - Click in Hard Disk (SATA) and delete it (Remove Hard Disk)
       

       
      - Then add the physical disk
       

       
      - There's a bug in Fusion. To select the physical.vmdk, right click then "Quick Look", then "Share virtual disk with the virtual machine that created it"
       

       
      - Click Apply.
       

       
      - Now mount de install.iso
       


       
      - Start the VM and install as usual until: Disk Utility, format GUID with APFS (VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media), Install macOS, wait few reboots and stop at first boot wizard.
       
      This can take up to 45 minutes. It may seem like it is stopped, but it is not.
       

       
      - Press Command + Q and shutdown (usually WIN + Q)
       

       
      - Close VMware Fusion.
       
       
      Copy OpenCore to EFI
       
      - Mount the EFI with:
      sudo diskutil mount diskXs1  
      - Copy your current working OpenCore EFI to that mounted EFI.
       
      - Download mine attached or Update your OpenCore, Kexts and driver UEFI.
              - You can use the @MaLd0n script attached to compile all (OlarilaOC.command.zip)
              - If using mine add your MLB, ROM, SystemUUID and SystemSerialNumber. (see how to)
       
      - Add following items do config.plist:
       
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> boot-args -> -lilubetaall (append)
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-basesystem + Data + <00>
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-kernel + Data + <00>
      NVRAM -> Delete -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-basesystem
      NVRAM -> Delete -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-kernel
       

       
      Done!
       
      Boot from the new disk/SSD and finish de first boot wizard.
       
       
      And last but not least

      After hearing that OpenCore is so much better than Clover, and that it will probably be able to boot Big Sur before Clover does, I decided to take the jump.
       
      Running Catalina 10.15.5 18F101 with OC 0.5.9.
       
      So far I like the result. The OS feels faster, boots faster.
      And absolutely everything works (sleep, network, etc...)
       
      So, that's it? Is there anything else I have to do?
