could you please share with us your SMBIOS ID or config.plist file ? I can't manage my Presto Solo 10G PCIe SFP+ to work on My Hackintosh running Catalina ! even if it is supposed to work out of the box.
in fact, once the board plugged in a PICe 4x Slot, it is well detected on the...
Thanks for your help @CaseySJ
BTW, I'm trying to test the two thunderbolt connectors (USB-C) using :
Startech TBT3toTBT adapter,
ThunderBolt Pegasus from Promise Technology,
No-flashed (Original) firmware.
And I'm lil bit surprised cause the Pegasus is well recognized by the Hackintosh and...
Thanks @CaseySJ !
I think u already sent me the MOD-1 and MOD-2 and unfortunately both gives the same results ! thunderbolt controllers disappeared from IORestry and nothing shown in "about this Mac" thunderbolt section.
please find as an attachment the previous MOD-1 and MOD-2.
I cooked a new patched firmware this morning based on a Titan ridge mod firmware ! but I still haven't been able to find the right combination to make :banghead:
Thunderbolt Controller disappears from IORegistryExplorer and nothing shown on about this Mac thunderbolt section...
after some datasheet reading and rereading and flashrom patch code reviewing ! I confirm that the problem root cause is a PICNIC "Problem In Chair Not In Computer" :cry::(:thumbdown:lol:
I had a conversion problem in my patch! confusion between 8-BIT and 8-Byte :confused: ! I...
Thanks a lot @CaseySJ for your help !
of course once my tests finished, I will share my modifications with the developers via a pull Request :thumbup:
I tried to flash the first binary but the flash ended with an error and I think I know why !
I think this is due to the 8M memory structure...
Hi @CaseySJ !
so it was not plug and play but quite fun and lil bit easy to make it! indeed my chip was not recognized by Flashrom, so it was necessary, based on the chip datasheet, to add it manually in "flashchip.h & flashchip.c" and recompile the code ! now a can read/write and verify chip...
two commands where used
sudo flashrom -p ch341a_spi : to check if the chip was detected by the flashrom tool,
sudo flashrom -p ch341a_spi -r mx25v8035f-down-orig-1.bin : to read and Back-up chip memory
same replay if we run the commas several times,
yes i read the guide and followed...
@CaseySJ despite all my motivation I unfortunately did not succeed in backing up the firmware.
indeed, I was expecting to have a Winbond chipset on my nuc9i9qnb Mobo, but in reality I have a macronix mx25v8035f which for the moment is incompatible with flashrom.
I'm actually using the...
@CaseySJ Thanks a lot ! I will appreciate your help :)
unfortunately it is not part of the list ... so i will extract the firmware, i will also try to make the modification on my own and send you both the original & modified firmware ! [my modifications will be based on my previous post] ! I...
