Allan

The final release of macOS Sierra are available to download.

 

You can download it from App Store.

 

You can consult the list of useful tips created by @fantomas:

Soon we'll have the methods to create a Penboot to all Hacks.

You can use the createinstallmedia, and after the process been concluded just install Clover in your Pendrive. ;)

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled  —nointeraction

EDIT: The list above will be constantly been updated as we got new methods and fixes.

That's too bad :(

 

What about the startinstall method? have you tested it yet?

 

 

That just adds the installer files to the HDD correct? Seems that's what Pandora's box does too.

Yeah, I suppose the startinstall method is the first stage of the actual installation of macOS High Sierra where macOS Installer extracts the installation files from the installer app to the target volume. I haven't used Pandora either I'm not sure about that part.

Does the restore BaseSystem method still work with 10.13? Seen a lot of posts using that method with the missing or corrupt OSInstall.mpkg error. 

 

Yes, it still works with some changes - see post#13.  Credit to @crazybirdy for his Disk1mbrInstaller technique :).

 

It can be used as a last resort when your system can't boot with the vanilla pre-linked kernel eg AMD system that requires custom kernel, older systems that have SATA issues and need to replace AppleAHCIPort.kext v329 with v328.  Another advantage is that you can add @crazybirdy's patched OSInstaller to bypass High Sierra's firmware verification routine and MBR checks.

Guys, just a tip, i've a Pentium G3258 (Haswell), and i made the createinstallmedia method, all went fine until i start the usb install, kp after kp. So, if someone have the same issue, just put the FakeSMC.kext on Other folder, DSDT on ACPI / patched folder, use the iMac13,1 Smbios and use WestemereX cpuid on FakeCpuid ( 0206F0 ), doing it i reach the install screen, installed all and now i use the Haswell FakeCpuid ( 0306C0 ) and my MacPro5,1 Smbios as i used before  and all works fine.

I think it's irrelevant, but i've used the flags -xpcm kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0.

Hope it helps.

  • Certain SATA controllers will still have issues with AppleAHCIPort v329 (eg ICH10, 5 series, 7 series, ASMedia 1061) ---> Disks may fail to initialize, not readable or hot plug may fail.  AppleAHCIPort.kext v328 with version bundle 999.1.1 survives upgrade if installed in /L/E, and is loaded in preference to v329

And it's necessary delete the original one inside S/L/E?

 

Thanks

No, you can leave the original in /S/L/E if you install my modded AppleAHCIPort.kext v328 in /L/E. 

 

Since it has a higher bundle version (999.1.1), it will be loaded in preference to the original kext (v329) in /S/L/E, once you update the kext cache :).

createinstallmedia doesn't work on AMD systems :(

How about a little free app named "Boot Buddy"..? it's just another GUI version of createinstallmedia though, but U could always try it first.

I've used it since 10.13 DP1, at least when I was lazy to open Terminal  :rolleyes:

Oh well, I restored Sierra to my system drive.  I will have to continue working on getting High Sierra fully functional before I put it back on my main installation.  The problems?  No brightness adjustment, no sleep, no power off.  All seem to be ACPI-related.  I have my work cut out for me.

For power off issue (and also restart & logoff + Sleep) also happened on my nvidia gf119 as well, till I replaced native NVDAResman.kext with DP1 has. It's little bit strange if also occurred on IntelHD Graphics, but I'm not sure what caused it.

Fix for ICH10 with High Sierra.

 

I made the binary patch for AppleAHCIPort.kext allowing new kext to work correctly  with ICH10 Sata controllers. Here is:

4585F60F 95C289C8 83E0FE66 85C9780F 84D2750B -> 89C883E0 FE6685C9 0F98C141 08CC9090 9090750B 

It can be used with any bootloader who can patch kexts on the fly. Or manually change it in any hex editor or command line.

This is how it looks with bootloader:

And here is the result:

Good luck! ;)

It works here on my 5 series GAP55aUD3 as well :).  All disks detected, even with vanilla AppleAHCIPort.kext v329 loaded...
