syndikate Posted June 8, 2021 Share Posted June 8, 2021 Hi all, After months of lusting after my very own hackintosh, I bit the bullet and had tremendous, first-time success. I wish jailbreaking my 12 mini was this easy! Much appreciation to the trials and tribulations for those that came before me. I understand that this device is more than likely a ticking time-bomb with the equipped nvidia, but here it goes: Model: Dell D830 Spoofed Indentifier: MacBookPro7,1 Clover: 5122 commit 1fe7cc1cf BIOS: A17 CPU: T8300 Penryn GPU: nVidia Quadro NVS 135M RAM: 2x2GB DDR2 667Mhz PC2-5300 SODIMM Storage: 256GB SSD WiFi: 802.11n via 4965AGN M1530 I followed Hervé's guide here. Worked just as described first time around. Granted, this is my first hackintosh, but I'm not afraid to fiddle around with clover configurator to get this thing into prime shape. The only adjustments I've made are directly from the post related to HS and changing my serial (among a few other identifiers as prescribed). Before I made the decision to install clover, I made some interesting upgrade choices on this machine that was otherwise collecting dust - first laptop that I've worked on beyond upgrading RAM/storage. The T8300 works; but I should have opted for the T9300 - oh well. WiFi card. Rather than picking almost the first one suggested by the video tutorials on youtube, I should have consulted with the inventory of supported cards. I'm finding myself in buyer's paralysis - I have managed to confuse myself with the recent realization that WWAN =/ WLAN. I want the fastest compatible (presumably AC), and I also want bluetooth, but cannot for the life of me find any reference to this mysterious DW360 bluetooth module that's referenced across these many posts. -- Side note on optimization: I'm unsure if these are directions to find these files and/or execution of various kexts. To quote from the install guide: Quote native CPU speedstep (with SMC-tuned Kozlek's FakeSMC v6.13.1363 and MBP7,1 SMBIOS profile) native GPU throttling (with above AGPM-tuned Kozlek's FakeSMC) And from further reading: Quote Keep DSDT as is and clone the GFX0 section of the MBP5,1 entry of AGPM kext Info plist to a new Vendor10deDevice042b entry with control-id set to 18. ...Obviously, solution #2 is the preferred method as it does not require the somehow risky DSDT patch and it fits in line with existing entries in the AGPM kext Info plist. I've just achieved identical results on my D620 nVidia model, using the exact same principles but a different device id for the Quadro NVS 110M GPU (id 0x01d7). ...It's pretty safe to say this extends to other D830 As well as from this: Quote D830 nVidia Quadro NVS 135M/140M With 32/64 or 64bit FakeSMC v5.2.678 & plugins version (or later v6.x.xxxx) SMC keys -> use id of MacBookPro5,1 i.e. 1.33f8 SMC compatible -> use "smc-mcp" SMBIOS plist -> use MacBookPro5,1 profile from Chameleon Wizard Remove CPUMonitor + NullCPUPowerManagement + VoodooPState + VoodooTSCSync + SleepEnabler kexts from /E/E From Mavericks onwards, remove AppleACPIPlatform kext v1.3.x from /E/E (i.e. run vanilla kext). Use/keep it only for Lion and ML. Native SpeedStep fully supported through entire CPU speed range Native Sleep/Wake with hibernatemode set to 0 and /var/vm/sleepimage file deleted GPU/memory clockings showing at 168/100, 275/199 and 400/399MHz Any help would be tremendously appreciated.
