    Apple Previews macOS 11.0 Big Sur - Available Fall 2020

    PowerPC was a RISC based chip - and proved to be horribly underpowered compared to WinTel - the resurgence of Apple happened when they shifted to Intel. Taking a step backwards and shifting to another underpowered Risc Chip is NOT the way to the future. This is about one thing - control - and...

    Catalina - Safari Crashing on Video Issue

    Most of the video streaming sites switched to HTML 5 for video streaming. This supports HDCP which typically what caused problems with the Playback - the DRM was killing it. This was working prior to Catalina for me (I was setup with Headless IGP, with a iMac Pro system definition). Chrome...

    Catalina - Safari Crashing on Video Issue

    This is exactly what's happening to me - everything works perfectly in Chrome - but Safari crashes with the mouse pointer continuing to work. I had some minor success changing the platform id - but they all eventually crashed (sometimes Netflix would work for the first 10 seconds before crashing).

    Catalina - Safari Crashing on Video Issue

    Well - I thought I had it - as I was able to get Netflix to play in Safari. I tried some other DRMed video streaming sites (like amazon) and they still failed. Then after a reboot - netflix was crashing my desktop again. My Setup: Gigabyte Z370 with ATI RX 580, running as a iMacPro. Currently...

    Catalina - Safari Crashing on Video Issue

    UPDATE: Found the issue. For whatever reason my IGPU platform-id from Mojave didn't work in Catalina. I changed to the recommended Platform-ID by following the guide on this site. This enabled the headless IGPU used by Safari. Problem Resolved

    Catalina - Safari Crashing on Video Issue

    I just finished the upgrade to Catalina, as in Movaje a number of things worked great: 1) Netflix/PrimeVideo etc. in Chrome 2) Apple TV Streaming. I have found a weird issue with Netflix, CraveTV, Prime Video in Safari - the minute I access the site - my computer locks up. Is this happening...

    macOS 10.15 Catalina is Now Available on the Mac App Store

    Had to upgrade to the latest Clover - but no issues otherwise - do we still need to use -lilubetaall for the whatevergreen/lilu kexts?

    Hack won't Boot Unless Lilu is included in Clover

    Thanks - I'm more than happy to leave it being injected by the boot loader, just the download link on this site and a few of the discussions have mentioned it should reload in /Library/Extensions - and I was trying to do things the "Right" way. Not an issue at all - Solved.

    Hack won't Boot Unless Lilu is included in Clover

    I've been tuning stuff for the last few months, and my hack is fully functional as a result. The latest Lilu and WhateverGreen call for the kexts to be installed in /Library/Extensions, but if I don't include them in Clover kexts/other my Hack won't boot. With them included in Clover...

    Vega 56 not working

    Your card is not correctly seated in the socket - the gold pins should be fully seated in the socket. Try a little pressure or screwing it in.

    Sporadic prohibited logo Mojave 10.14.5 (maybe other versions of mojave)

    I had a similar issue and it was related to the Aptio driver in clover running out of memory. Try replacing your Aptio Clover driver with the new version "AptioMemoryFix.efi" - for me it also helped to turn on "Fast Boot".

    Sometimes prohibition sign at boot

    Your probably running out of memory on the Aptio Driver. Make a backup of your existing Clover/Drivers64UEFI/OsxAptioFix2Drv.efi or OsxAptioFix3Drv.efi, and delete them from Clover/Drivers64UEFI on your EFI drive. Then copy over ApfsMemoryFix.efi and reboot. ApfsMemoryFix.efi is available on...

    Bluetooth device will not wake Hack

    I know it sounds silly - but humor me. If you disconnect every external USB device and try going to sleep - does it sleep?

    Hackintosh Immediately Wakes From Sleep Issues

    I can report I was able to solve my issue. The issue I had was I had a HD60S Streaming USB Device plugged into my USB - this device was causing it to wake immediately. As for waking from sleep from a bluetooth device - try clicking bluetooth (in system preferences) - advanced - "Allow bluetooth...
