I'm trying to use your tool on a gigabyte Z390M gaming MB. I was able to get accelerated graphics working according to The System Information report and the Hackintool, but I cannot get the Hackintool to show any highlighted connectors for either a connected HDMI monitor or connected DVI monitor.

I do not have a working video port on the MB nor do I have an external GPU. But I can use another Mac to "Share Screen" into the Z390 and operate the Hackintool "remotely".

Is this remote approach the reason that the connectors are not showing??? I wouldn't think so.

Any suggestions as to why no connectors are hilighted?

You can try using the config.plist from my post #4 of my Z390 M Gaming thread. Link is below in my signature.

I've got three iterative questions about this piece of software that I'd be interested in trying.

1: What is the minimum required OS to run Hackintool?
2: Does there exist a version that runs on Mavericks 10.9.5?
3: If yes, where can I find it? The official github has downloadable version only down to 3.2.x and not any older.

@LisaAlterEgo pointed out that "the appropriate USB power supply value was not set when creating USBPorts.kext".
Could you please modify the program to set the values of kUSBSleepPowerSupply
and kUSBWakePowerSupply by selecting the Connector?

Of course, it also warns anyone who wants to break the USB device by selecting the wrong Connector,
and adds a statement of your disclaimer.


I found that it is not possible to set for each port.
Withdraw your request.

Hello dear People,
Please help me. I downloaded latest hackingtool 3.5.3 from GitHub (https://github.com/headkaze/Hackintool) and can not figure out how to install this software and run it. It appears to be just a folder and few other folders within it. readme does not say how to install it... idk I am lost. Thank you in advance.

Thank you so much, your link actually contained .zip with .app file that worked great. And I greatly appreciate that!

But I do not understand still, what should I do in a future with newer versions of this app that will be released on https://github.com/headkaze/Hackintool.
Could you please share the way of how you compiled .app file out of all folders and files that developer releases As a package? I can not find a tutorial or any instructions anywhere.

Thank you for your patience and help.
