    New UEFIPatch patches! Unlock 0xE2, 0x1AA (boot Catalina without any kernel patches, native power mgmt) on C422, C620, and some X299 motherboards!

    Hi, I have added 4 new patches to UEFIPatch which add support for several C422 and C621/C622 based motherboards running a Skylake or Cascade Lake HEDT+ CPU(s). These motherboards are either Socket LGA2066 (Xeon W2xxx and Core i9 CPUs) in the case of the C422, or LGA3647 (Xeon 3xxxW/Xeon...

    Solved > Updated X99/Broadwell-E XCPM Performance Patch for 10.13.6 Build 17G5019

    Hi, this is a combination fix & PSA for anyone using the X99/Broadwell-E Performance kernel patch. If you've installed a recent 10.13.6 security update with build 17G5019 or newer (and possibly a bit earlier, I unfortunately am not sure exactly which build the change occurred), the...

    [FIX] Chrome graphics issues (but without turning off graphics acceleration!)

    I am not sure how many people this effects, but I imagine a number of users with a relatively recent NVIDIA or AMD GPU have been experiencing persistent graphics issues in Chrome since at least 10.11. These issues include: Garbled browser page content, often appearing as blocks of the page...

    [FIX] macOS Sierra 10.12.x Spotlight and/or notification center break without thermal sensors.

    I don't know how many people this effects, probably not that many (I haven't really investigated further, but it might even be specific to certain SMBIOSes, it is certainly an issue when using the MacPro6,1 SMBIOS at any rate). I was plagued by very vague 'working-but-not-really' problems with...

    ...What are all the avatars looking at?

    Seriously. What are they looking at? They're all looking UP at something. But what? Maybe this is not the right forum section, but this has been bugging me for literally years, and I finally just had to ask. I mean, they're awesome little avatars, I love 'em, but particularly that...

    [GUIDE] Full Power Management w/ Dual/Single Broadwell-EP/Haswell-EP CPUs on 10.12.

    EDIT: Updated info for 10.13 here. Ok, this is my first shot at a guide, so it might suck. Hopefully it doesn't. But it might. So, this is not a all-encompassing start to finish guide. This assumes you're at the point where you're trying to boot a macOS Sierra thumb drive (or the upgrade...

    [TOOL] EFI_Mount - UUID based, works even when diskX numbers change.

    Hi, I got fed up with the inconsistent device names for drives/partitions in OS X (meaning, which disks are given which /dev/diskX device nodes are up to the whims of the SATA bus and can change with every reboot) and the absolutely terrible way Clover Configurator handles this fact. Making you...

    [Color Profile] Alternative Color Profiles for AUO V4 1080p Displays

    I noticed the hardware calibrated ColorSync profiles for the AUO v4 1080p display upgrade included in the Probook Installer v5/6 looked great for some people, and gave weird colors for others. It's true that every LCD panel will have a unique color response, but all the panels made during a...

    HD 3000 Laptop 'Main Ring' hangs: Maybe some new information

    Hey, so I have been working on a hackintosh solution for my Dell E5420 (i7-2620m, HD 3000 video, device ID 0x126, or the HD3000+). I was getting the constant 'main ring' hangs some people have been getting, only much worse, glitching graphics, that kind of thing. I could use QE/CI to some...
