3. Installation Guide
These are the steps in order to install or upgrade your XiaoMi-Air. There is a very detailed document on the steps followed and the customizations which can be found in DETAILS.md.

There is a another document on how I setup my environment including all the tools and utilities I have used ENVIRONMENT.air.md.

You will need a working macOS installation (no matter the version) to create a USB Flash Drive with macOS.

Start by downloading the latest version the customization files from the releases page. It includes:
    • AIR_EFI/: efi directory including all kexts and customization needed
    • addons/LiluFriendLite.kext: LiluFriendLite.kext used in the installation
    • addons/HFSPlus.efi: HFSPlus.efi used in the installation
    • addons/VirtualSmc.efi: VirtualSmc.efi used in the installation

    3.1 Installation SSD
    I installed a Samsung 850 Evo Series, 500GB M.2 SSD (MZ-N5E500BW) specifically for macOS on the second M.2 port. Use F12 to boot from a specific device.

    3.2 Disable Secure Boot
    Hold F2 to get into the BIOS. In order to disable the secure boot you need to set a supervisor BIOS password. Use root as a password. Without exiting disable the secure boot. Then change the supervisor password and do not enter a new one. This will disable it. Exit BIOS saving the options.

    You do not have to change anything else from the defaults

    3.3 Preparing USB Flash Drive
    Get a at least 16GB USB Flash Drive and:

    Disk Utility > Select USB Device > Erase:
    • GUID Partition Table
    • Name: USB
    • Format: MacOS Extended (Journaled)

    3.4 Install mojave installer to the USB Flash Drive
    Download mojave from Apple AppStore and run the following command to install it on the USB disk you just Erased.
    $ sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB

    3.5 Install Clover to the USB Flash Drive
    Go with the stock clover and run Clover_v2.5k_r5018 installer:

    *Continue* > *Continue* > *Change Install Location* > *Install macOS Mojave* > *Customize*

    *Clover for UEFI booting only*, *Install Clover in the ESP*, *Drivers off*

    *UEFI Drivers* / *Recommended drivers* :
    • `AudioDxe.efi`
    • `DataHubDxe.efi`
    • `FSInject.efi`

    *UEFI Drivers* / *FileVault 2 UEFI Drivers* :
    • `AppleKeyFeeder.efi`

    3.6 Customize Clover on the USB Flash Drive
    Download the latest release from github and unzip the archive. You will find an AIR_EFI directory and a addons directory. Mount the USB Flash Drive's EFI partition on /Volumes/EFI:
    • make sure that in `EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI` you have only the following files: `AppleKeyFeeder.efi`, `AudioDxe.efi`, `DataHubDxe.efi`, `FSInject.efi`. Erase the rest (Clover installer sometimes installs other dependencies)
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other` from the downloaded file to USB's EFI to `EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other`
    • copy `addons/HFSPlus.efi`, `addons/VirtualSmc.efi`, `addons/ApfsDriverLoader.efi`, `addons/AppleUiSupport.efi`, `addons/AptioInputFix.efi`, `addons/AptioMemoryFix.efi` from the downloaded file to USB's EFI to `EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/`
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/*` from the downloaded file to USB's EFI to `EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/*`
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/config.plist` from the downloaded file to USB's EFI to `EFI/CLOVER/config.plist`

    3.7 Install Mojave
    To boot from the USB Flash Drive you can just hit F12 and you will get the UEFI boot loader

    Boot from the USB and install Mojave on the hard disk.

    If your Xiaomi-Air already runs High Sierra 10.13.6 you can upgrade directly to Mojave using the installer from the AppleStore (no need of a USB Flash Drive).

    Important: During installation you will ask to reboot the machine. While on clover make sure to boot from Boot macOS install from *** disk disk. If you do not see this disk hit F3 to show all the hidden disks. You may need to reboot multiple times.
    3.8 Install Clover on the macOS disk
    Once the installation is over you will need to install Clover bootloader on the hard disk that you have installed macOS in order to be able to boot without the USB Flash Drive.


    Run again the Clover_v2.5k_r5018 installer:

    *Continue* > *Continue* > *Change Install Location* > *macOS location* > *Customize*

    *Clover for UEFI booting only*, *Install Clover in the ESP*, *Drivers off*

    *UEFI Drivers* / *Recommended drivers* :
    • `AudioDxe.efi`
    • `DataHubDxe.efi`
    • `FSInject.efi`

    *UEFI Drivers* / *FileVault 2 UEFI Drivers* :
    • `AppleKeyFeeder.efi`

    *Install Clover Preference Pane*

    3.9 Customize Clover on the macOS disk
    Download the latest release from github and unzip the archive. You will find an AIR_EFI directory and a addons directory.

    Mount the EFI partition of the macOS boot parition on /Volumes/EFI:
    • make sure that in `EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI` you have only the following files: `AppleKeyFeeder.efi`, `AudioDxe.efi`, `DataHubDxe.efi`, `FSInject.efi`. Erase the rest (Clover installer sometimes installs other dependencies)
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other` from the downloaded file to macOS location `EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other`
    • copy `addons/HFSPlus.efi`, `addons/VirtualSmc.efi`, `addons/ApfsDriverLoader.efi`, `addons/AppleUiSupport.efi`, `addons/AptioInputFix.efi`, `addons/AptioMemoryFix.efi` from the downloaded file to macOS location `EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/`
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/*` from the downloaded file to macOS location `EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/*`
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/config.plist` from the downloaded file to macOS location `EFI/CLOVER/config.plist`

    3.10 Move kexts to /Library/Extensions
    The right way to load kexts is not by injecting them through clover but installing them in /Library/Extensions and building them into the kernel cache.

    Download the latest release from github and unzip the archive. You will find an AIR_EFI directory and a addons directory.

    Mount the EFI partition of the macOS boot parition on /Volumes/EFI:
    • move EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* from macOS boot parition to /Library/Extensions/*
    • run from the console $ sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions/*
    • run from the console $ sudo chmod -r 755 /Library/Extensions/*
    • run from the console $ sudo kextcache -i / to rebuild the caches
    • move addons/LiluFriendLite.kext from the downloaded file to /Library/Extensions/LiluFriendLite.kext
    • run from the console $ sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions/*
    • run from the console $ sudo chmod -r 755 /Library/Extensions/*
    • run from the console $ sudo kextcache -i / to rebuild the caches
    remember that kextcache needs to be run twice

    3.11 Create a USB Flash Drive just with Clover for emergencies
    Get a small (2GB will work just fine) USB Flash Drive and:

    Disk Utility > Select USB Device > Erase:
    • GUID Partition Table
    • Name: CLOVER
    • Format: MS-DOS-FAT
    Run the Clover_v2.5k_r5018 installer:

    *Continue* > *Continue* > *Change Install Location* > *USB Flash Drive* > *Customize*

    *Clover for UEFI booting only*, *Install Clover in the ESP*, *Drivers off*

    *UEFI Drivers* / *Recommended drivers* :
    • `AudioDxe.efi`
    • `DataHubDxe.efi`
    • `FSInject.efi`

    *UEFI Drivers* / *FileVault 2 UEFI Drivers* :

    * `AppleKeyFeeder.efi`

    Download the latest release from github and unzip the archive. You will find an AIR_EFI directory and a addons directory. Mount the USB Flash Drive's EFI partition on /Volumes/EFI:
    • make sure that in `EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI` you have only the following files: `AppleKeyFeeder.efi`, `AudioDxe.efi`, `DataHubDxe.efi`, `FSInject.efi`. Erase the rest (Clover installer sometimes installs other dependencies)
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other` from the downloaded file to USB's EFI to `EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other`
    • copy `addons/HFSPlus.efi`, `addons/VirtualSmc.efi`, `addons/ApfsDriverLoader.efi`, `addons/AppleUiSupport.efi`, `addons/AptioInputFix.efi`, `addons/AptioMemoryFix.efi` from the downloaded file to USB's EFI to `EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/`
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/*` from the downloaded file to USB's EFI to `EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/*`
    • copy `AIR_EFI/CLOVER/config.plist` from the downloaded file to USB's EFI to `EFI/CLOVER/config.plist`
    • edit `config.plist` change the `SystemParameters`:

    XML:
    <dict>
    <key>InjectKexts</key>
    <string>Detect</string>
    <key>InjectSystemID</key>
    <true/>
    </dict>
    4. Postinstallation Steps

    4.1 Enable HiDPI resolutions
    I am using the computer using the *1600x900* resolution that fits my eyes best.

    You can enable HiDPI resolutions using the amazing script [one-key-hidpi](https://github.com/xzhih/one-key-hidpi). However since native max resolution of the LCD is *1920x1080* it **does not make any sense**. HiDPI will look huge on screen and the *1920x1080* HiDPI will not seem any different and will make the computer slower. *1920x1080* HiDPI will create a *3840x2160* virtual screen that will map it to a *1920x1080* display, so it does not help much.

    If you still want to use HiDPI get the avibrazil/RDM [avibrazil/RDM](https://github.com/avibrazil/RDM) tool if you cannot see all the available resolutions.

    4.2 Install ALCPlugFix

    Install ALCPlugFix is work in progress to solve the wake up with headphones problem

  • USBPorts.kext through HackingTool

> 2090801 It seems that HS02 and SS02 is not used. I thought initially that the Type-C used different ports according to how you plug the cable. So they are redundant in the kext. However they do not make any harm so I left them in

5.9 Wi-Fi
The card in the laptop is Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260

Hi guys,

Thanks for your guide. I successfully installed HS on my mi notebook air 13.3 i5-6200U. I don't necessarily want to OC just get better battery life/power consumption and I am seriously confused by the methods floating around. I get around 2.5hrs on battery.

I get that XCPM power management is native for this CPU which is ok but not great battery life. Where to go now? HWPEnabler method as found here with CPUFriendDataProvider.kext, is there progress? I get that either use either XCPM or disable it and only use HWP.

I found here for HWPEnable: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319775-release-hwp-intel-speed-shift-on-skylake-and-up-enabler-kext/ or https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/skylake-hwp-enable.214915/

Any easier options (don't want to break my installation just yet) or a step by step guide for beginner level? LOL

Hi @mongo99 ,

I get similar battery life. My understanding is that your best bet is to create a custom CPUFriendDataProvider .

1. In my guide I have used the one I found in the original port from JahStories on another forum which I converted it in the format of CPUFriend.
2. See this post on how to create one. And this post on an optimized one. I know they are from the Pro model but it is the closest I have found to a guide.
3. Check this freqVectosEdits on the subject as well
4. finally check syscl/CPUTune

I am working on it as well (on my little spare time). When I have something I will update the guide.

Hi added a new release with some changes:


In case someone is interested. @mongo99 I played a bit with the CPUFriendDataProvider. I think this is the best the laptop can achieve battery wise.

Hello Sakoula,

I was unfortunately unable to upgrade successfully from High Sierra to Mojave because ending with a bootloop...
So i used your nice guide setup and had success!
But No sound available? and some kext rejected?
Kext rejected due to improper filesystem permissions?

Should you kindly find what have messed i will be happy?

Hello Sakoula,

I found some mispelling in your guide setup: see my corrections shown in RED
Mount the EFI partition of the macOS boot parition on /Volumes/EFI:

  1. move EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* from macOS boot partition to /System/Library/Extensions/*
  2. run from the console $ sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*
  3. run from the console $ sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extentions/*
  4. run from the console $ sudo kextcache -i / to rebuild the caches
  5. move addons/LiluFriendLite.kext from the downloaded file to /Library/Extensions/LiluFriendLite.kext
  6. run from the console $ sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*
  7. run from the console $ sudo chmod -R755 /System/Library/Extentions/*
  8. run from the console $ sudo kextcache -i / to rebuild the caches
remember that kextcache needs to be run twice

Do you have any idea how to correct Kext rejected due to improper filesystem permissions?
