Since the SSD 1TB started to drop in prices, I got one for my J120dx before, the brand is Silicon Power and it’s quite reliable and fast- Ace A55 from Amazon for less than $100. There are 14 screws need to be removed from the back – 2 hidden under rubber feet. Remove the keyboard […]
Catalina 10.15.4 with the supplemental update seems to be the trouble maker for most hackintoshes compared to the 10.15.3. The new Clover boot loader is quite buggy. The Haswell HD4400 and HD4600 have kernel panic reboot after sleep/wake when using AppleAlc.kext (1.4.8) to patch IDT 92HD91Bxx sounds with Lilu.kext 1.4.3. The only way to work […]
Somehow, my son broke the hinges on his 17″ HP TouchSmart M7-J120DX, every time he opens the lid, it’s wobbling, the fan and the power socket seems to come out. This is how I fixed the hinges due to broken nuts inside the case.

The 10.11.6 IOUSBHostFamily.kext patched didn’t work, I had to use the old 10.11.5 and it worked. The […]
My son wanted a fast laptop for gaming with the ability to install El Capitan 10.11.1 to it, he doesn’t like Windows OS, but he still needs it for Windows games, but these days, most of the games are on the internet and they’re Mac compatible. i7-4700MQ and i7-4710HQ are the last i7 that truly […]
So, the new El Capitan 10.11.1 update came out, I download the update combo and installed it. 2 files that were replaced: AppleHDA.kext and IOUSBHostFamily.kext caused the Patched Sound and USB ports stop working. Just re-install those 2 and everything works as 10.11. I also had to installed new Clover r3292 to prevent instant reboot. […]
