    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    I'd happily go back to official hardware if they'd just release something consumer level with PCI and storage expansion. Apple still ignores that tier entirely since 5,1 mac pros. Imacs are mid range at best and current mac pro design is utter over kill and STILL fully lacks an understanding of...

    10.15.5 has a file system bug to be aware of

    if using cloned backups, bombich posted a very important blog outlying a new file system bug that may affect creating NEW backups of 10.15.5. Updating existing backups should be fine. Since us hack users do backups regularly, I felt it was important to repost this info here and make sure to...

    How do I fix _OSI ("Darwin")?

    Any patch, any at all, that has if _OSI ("Darwin") then do stuff else do other stuff end doesn't work, unless I remove the _OSI ("Darwin") part. I really don't want to do that because I really want these patches, like EC ones, ONLY done in macOS. So what I need to do is figure out why when...

    An iDiot's Guide To iMessage

    I mean the evidence is pretty obvious, people were using bad roms, a lot of them using all 0s or other reused or badly inputed roms, with zero issues, until last month. Last month, apple finally started enforcing the rom be unique. Prior to that, it seemed to only matter to have good board ID...

    An iDiot's Guide To iMessage

    I mean it does have to do with apple that it's very clear they changed their rom checks to be more strict in last month. Sure it exposed a problem with invalid or re-used roms, but apple wasn't checking the rom before, at least not for duplicates, as long as everything else was good and rom was...

    [Success] GIGABYTE Z370 Gaming 7 + Intel Core i7-8700K + RX 580 + (2x) Dell P2715Q 4k @ 60Hz

    I had heard stories about people reaching out to Gigabyte Support, and how friendly they are in regard to custom needs. So I had emailed support a while back straight up asking for a custom version of latest BIPS with ability to turn CFG Lock on and off. Within 3 days they had emailed me exactly...

    An iDiot's Guide To iMessage

    UseMacAddr0 is bugged in clover (or configurator not sure who's fault), i suspect everyone using it had a rom of 000000, and that didn't matter til last month when apple went "whoa, why are there so many people with a rom of all 0s" biggest tip, manually input your ethernet's real rom. if you...

    An iDiot's Guide To iMessage

    What worked for me, so far, is the new generated rom. the new serial has worked since that post. obviously I didn't use same UUID etc as everything else. but the first serial I generated that only last 24 hours, I didn't change the rom (which is normally calculated using ethernet address 1)...

    Intel 10th Generation Desktop CPUs and Motherboards Delayed Until Late May

    I suspect Apple is getting tired of Intel's crap, too. Between security issues, and falling behind in performance as of late, they'll either switch to AMD short term on high performance end while pushing ARM on their lower end (like air) line.

    An iDiot's Guide To iMessage

    I don't know what's going on at apple but something is. I've had a working serial and setup for many years. i've had no changes on my end and imessagedebug still shows all valies good to go, but out of blue yesterday they blacklisted serial. I confirmed it was serial they blacklisted because I...

    appstore and itunes store suddenly broken

    Yeah, it turns out it wasn't even roxio that broke it, it is the high sierra security updates that break it. they break installs that still use the old itunes. Just reinstalling itunes with pacifist (HAS TO BE PACIFIST) and telling it to overwrite all files fixes it.

    appstore and itunes store suddenly broken

    Updated progress, I believe I know what hosed it. It's not serial. It seems simply opening roxio toast yesterday to makea CD for my mother damaged itunes beyond repair. I had thought of that and reinstalled itunes already with a fresh downloaded package even but that didn't work. But then in...

    appstore and itunes store suddenly broken

    With 0 configuration changes. Same hardware, same clover config, no new software at all. Literally it worked this morning, and this evening it didn't. Apple seems to have simply remotely revoked access to both itunes and appstore for my appleid for only THIS machine. I can access both fine from...

    Solved > USB 2.0/3.0/3.1 Fix

    Mapping USB ports properly to get rid of all dummy ports and have a proper map, just avoids ever having USB issues again. Basically just get a USB 2.0 and 3.0 flash drive, while using port patch, plug each one to every port with hackintool or another tool open. write down ID of all ports. When...

    Todays security update broke booting

    I'm unable to identify cause, standard useless hang in verbose mode iostatelock or whatever that message is. Yes I've already checked nvidia driver. I've updated enough times to know how to deal with that. It's something new. New to todays security update that broke some unknown componant and I...

    Nvidia Drivers for Mojave 10.14 Not Available, no WorkAround works well

    People need to STOP posting gpus that work on STOCK (built in driver) and then telling others their <insert work around for web driver that doesn't work>. If you don't understand by now that any nvidia GPU before maxwell, WORKS on stock driver in 10.14.x, you shouldn't be "helping" others.

    [Success] GIGABYTE Z370 Gaming 7 + Intel Core i7-8700K + RX 580 + (2x) Dell P2715Q 4k @ 60Hz

    Doing some testing and review, the Intel exploit press release today, is patched by microcode version B4 (180) for 8700K. I did some checking of macOS microcode version and with 10.14.5 or 10.13.6 with security update installed, sysctl -a | grep microcode does indeed return "180". If you are...
