Installation

Identify Your Model

If you are using XiaoMi-Pro with 8th Gen CPU, then it's a KBL (Kaby Lake) machine. (Actually Kaby Lake Refresh)
If you are using XiaoMi-Pro with 10th Gen CPU, then it's a CML (Comet Lake) machine.
You will need this information when you download the EFI release.

First-time installation

donot_clone_or_download

get_release

Build

Build the latest beta EFI by running the following command in Terminal:

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/daliansky/XiaoMi-Pro-Hackintosh/main/makefile.sh)"

Or run the following command in Terminal:

git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/daliansky/XiaoMi-Pro-Hackintosh.git
cd XiaoMi-Pro-Hackintosh
./makefile.sh

Some advanced usages are:

# Build EFI with kexts and OpenCore in Debug version
./makefile.sh --debug_KextOC
# Ignore errors when the script is running
./makefile.sh --ignore_err
# Bundled with Chinese verison Docs
./makefile.sh --lang=zh_CN
# Generate EFI release for Comet Lake model
./makefile.sh --model=CML
# Preserve work files during the building stage
./makefile.sh --no_clean_up
# Use GitHub API
./makefile.sh --gh_api
# Build the latest beta EFI with pre-release kexts
./makefile.sh --pre_release=Kext
# Build the latest beta EFI with pre-release OpenCore
./makefile.sh --pre_release=OC

Upgrade

  • If you are using XiaoMi-Pro with 8th Gen CPU, then it's a KBL (Kaby Lake) machine. (Actually Kaby Lake Refresh)
  • If you are using XiaoMi-Pro with 10th Gen CPU, then it's a CML (Comet Lake) machine.

  • Download the latest EFI release from the release page or beta EFI release from artifacts in the action page.
  • A complete replacement of BOOT and CLOVER(or OC) folders is required. Delete these two folders and copy them from the release pack.

Improvements

  • Use Hackintool to inject EDID (AAPL00,override-no-connect)
  • Change #enable-backlight-smoother to enable-backlight-smoother in config.plist to adjust the panel brightness smoothly
  • Use xzhih's one-key-hidpi to improve quality of system UI
    • Support 1424x802 HiDPI resolution
    • TM1701: On macOS > 10.13.6, to enable higher HiDPI resolution (<=1520x855), you need to use DVMT_and_0xE2_fix to set DVMT to 64mb
  • Add forceRenderStandby=0 in config - NVRAM - Add - 7CXXX - boot-args (OpenCore) or config - Boot - Arguments (Clover) if NVMe Kernel Panic CSTS=0xffffffff occurs
  • Use NVMeFix to enable APST on NVMe SSDs
  • TM1701 & TM1707: Use ALCPlugFix to fix unworking jack after replug
  • TM1701: Use DVMT_and_0xE2_fix to set DVMT to 64mb and unlock CFG

FAQ

I can't click to drag or right click using the trackpad.

Starts from VoodooI2C v2.4.1, the click down action is emulated to force touch, which causes the failure of click down and drag and right click gestures. You can turn off Force Click in SysPref - Trackpad, and I recommend enabling three finger drag in SysPref - Accessibility - Mouse & Trackpad - Trackpad Options.

My screen turns to black and has no response during the updating process.

If you have black screen for five minutes and get no response from the device, please force restart your laptop(Long press power button) and choose Boot macOS Install from ~ entry.

Stuck on Apple logo or fail to boot.

A reset of NVRAM is recommended. For Clover users, press Fn+F11 when you are in Clover boot page.
For OC users, press Space key when you are in OpenCore boot page and choose Reset NVRAM. If this does not work, you can try to set SecureBootModel to Disabled in config.plist.
For Clover users, try to delete HWTarget in config.plist.

My device is locked by Find My Mac and can't be booted, what should I do now?

For Clover users, press Fn+F11 when you are in Clover boot page. Then Clover will refresh nvram.plist, and lock message should be removed.
For OC users, press Esc to enter the boot menu during startup. Then, press Space key and choose Reset NVRAM.

[Clover] I opened the FileVault, and I can't find macOS partition in Clover boot page, how can I solve it?

It is not recommended to open FileVault. You can press Fn+F3 in the Clover boot page and choose the icon with FileVault. Then you can boot in the system and close FileVault.

[OC] How to skip the boot menu and automatically boot into the system?

First, in macOS, open SysPref - Startup Disk. Choose the target system.
Then, open /EFI/OC/config.plist, and turn off ShowPicker.
When you want to switch OS, press Esc during startup to call the boot menu.

[OC] How to enable startup chime? (TM1701 & TM1707)

Change #AudioDxe.efi to AudioDxe.efi in config.plist - UEFI - Drivers.
Enable AudioSupport in config.plist - UEFI - Audio.
If you are using macOS Big Sur, go to SysPref - Sound and turn on Play sound on startup.
For macOS version < Big Sur, open Terminal.app and run sudo nvram StartupMute=%00.
