Notes

1 - OpenCanopy is a graphical user interface for OpenCore.

2 - It's currently considered experimental and is not recommended for everyday use.

3 - This is not a support topic for OpenCanopy but instead somewhere to discuss icons.

4 - See OpenCore documentation for how to configure and set up OpenCanopy.

 

Overview

Many users like to keep their hacks looking as close to a mac as possible by using OpenCanopy with Apple's own icons, however for users that may want to deviate from Apple's boot icons for a more custom look, they're left with having to find their own icons from various places which can sometimes result in a not so consistent theme feel.

 

To help, I am aiming to 'slowly' create families of 'similar' icons which may eventually lead to a more harmonious look when mixing/customising icons. The idea is that eventually there will be a large 'pick and mix' range of icons where the user can choose which ever ones they like whilst knowing they will all look like they're meant to be together. 

 

Of course, I could never come up with every permutation that someone could imagine so there will always be icons missing from the range, but over time I hope to grow the collection(s).

All Icon sets have now been combined and are available from now on at the new repo

OpenCanopy_Pick_and_Mix_Icons_2 

 

These use the same icon models as OpenCanopy_Pick_and_Mix_Icons_1 but have different lighting and altered textures. There are now only light and dark internal images as I've dropped the mid grey. Shadows have been added to the light devices. The internal drive icons include extra variations with a subtle macOS image from 10.12 thru 10.16. There are three sets of recovery images with each set showing a different world region on the map, Americas, Europe, Asia. The Selector and Selection images are available in 9 different transparency levels.

 

Then complete set of icons in OpenCanopy_Pick_and_Mix_Icons_2

OpenCanopy_Pick_and_Mix_Icons_3

 

Building on the last set and slowly adding to the collection I've included the missing, non-mandatory, Other and External icons that OpenCanopy looks for. There are now also some white external drives, some Microsoft and Microsoft Windows 10 ones and a preliminary few internal drives with labels.

 

I think it may be good to eventually have some kind of visual repository for these where it will be easy to scroll through and maybe just download the ones of interest... Anyway thats for later, for now I'll just keep posting a handful as I create them.

OpenCanopy_Pick_and_Mix_Icons_4

 

I have generated dark and light Microsoft Windows 10 and Apple HardDrive icons with stronger desktop images to give the user choice over the more subtler ones posted previously.

 

There are now some internal and external generic Linux icons and also light and dark HardDrive icons for 15 Linux distro's.

OpenCanopy_Pick_and_Mix_Icons_5

 

HardDrives with overly large OS icons (possibly too big, but trying to give the user choices).

Also, OS icons on their own without the drive image.

Does OpenCanopy even discern between other OSs?  

 

It doesn't need to. The user can take any .icns file, rename it to .VolumeIcons.icns and place at the root of the volume, then set PickerAttributes in config.plist to a value that reads them.

* Check OpenCore documentation for correct details.

OpenCanopy_Pick_and_Mix_Icons_6

 

Add some HardDrives with large macOS Roundels, and then the roundels without the drives underneath them to match the sizes of the large Linux ones in pack 5 (I think when they're on the drives they are definitely too large and will have to address that later on).

 

I then realised the OS logos didn't have shadows so went back to re-made those. And then I noticed older External icons also didn't't have shadows so went back and re-made all those. So this pack has many duplicates from previous packs, but with shadows.

      Finally I was able to move from Clover to OpenCore 0.5.9 on my hackintosh build. It boots really fast and even with the famous boot chime. I attached the OC config.plist for anyone who wants to give it a try. I followed the Github step-by-step guide:
      Haswell · GitBook
        dortania.github.io My build specs are:
      Gigabyte Z97-HD3 rev. 2.1, i5-4690K, 16 GB RAM, Gigabyte Aorus AMD RX 580 8gb GPU.
      I used OpenCanopy to give a Clover feeling to the OpenCore boot menu (I don’t like list-type boot menus).

      So I have some less powerful hardware, that's why I'm installing High Sierra in 2020. Anyway, I'm trying to boot from the USB and I get the following errors:
      00:000 00:000 OCB: Missing DMG signature, aborting 00:585 00:585 OCB: LoadImage failed - Unsupported That's it. The logs begin and end there. The rest of the file is zeroes.
       
      Bootloader: OpenCore 0.5.9 Release
      Drivers:

      If you need more details, here's my laptop https://www.asus.com/Laptops/X540LJ/ . I have the 512GB version with 4GB of RAM
       
      I found a lot of forum posts about people having the same error, except nothing solved mine. Also, I haven't found anything online about the error with the Missing DMG Signature.
       
      EDIT: If anybody needs my config.plist, feel free to ask for it and I'll happily post it

      I was previously using clover with Catalina and on that everything worked very good, now i shifted to Opencore everything is working on laptop except trackpad, from windows is searched that my trackpad is "Microsoft HID" and i have tried all the VoodoI2 kexts, seperately like VoodoI2CHID, VoodoI2CELAN, VoodoI2CSynaptics but trackpad won't work. Previously i was using VoodoI2CHID on clover and trackpad was working very fine.
      Kindly help me in that, a little help would be appreciated.
       I have attached my OpenCore EFI Folder
       
      OC EFI.zip

      So, I cheap out and got a $20 dw1820a for my laptop hackintosh - EliteBook 820 G3 macOS Catalina 15.5. Clover wouldn't boot or work properly, OpenCore works perfectly with some adjustment.
