iPhone 5S Review


The iPhone 5S
   Now, let me start out with a background. I am a big Apple fan and don't own many other devices besides Windows-based computers. It could be iCloud, but this phone is good. Really good. With almost any review, I have good things and bad things. I am going to start with the bad things, just to get them off my chest and attempt to land on a good note. The touch-sensor is slow learning, and isn't fast at all in the setup. It almost took 5 minutes to set-up from the very beginning. When I saw it, it had a bit of an off-setting gray. It may because I am used to a jet black phone, but it made me feel a bit odd, like something wasn't quite right with the iPhone. If you can easily overlook these things and have plenty of patience, then it should be nice to see once it is out of the box. The OS is innovated and drastically different than iOS 6 and the previous editions, and very much changed graphically. It feels strange if you've used iOS before, but it settles in after a while. The phone is slick and easy to hold, light, and has the perfect pixel density and display size for me (but not for everyone). The camera is great, but not innovative, still holding up what I need in a camera. In 4 years, maybe Apple should've changed the camera, but it still has that sold-built feel to it (unlike the Nokia Lumia 1020). With everything taken into consideration, I give the iPhone 5S 9 out of 10.

Hackintosh Boot Flags

If this is your first time building or making a Hackintosh, boot flags may seem like a foreign concept. Once you understand what each of them means, you can get started!
Clover Boot Flags:Verbose Mode:

 -v 
Safe Mode:

 -x 
Single User Mode:

 -s 
Zone Postponing: (use if hanging)

 -no-zp 
Single CPU core mode:

 cpus=1 
No Kext Cache Mode: (When changing kexts)

 -f 
Disables VT-x or VT-d:

 dart=0 
Verbose Mode:

 -v 
Enable NVIDIA Web Drivers: (do not use with nv_disable=1)

 nvda_drv=1 
Disable NVIDIA graphics cards: (do not use with nvda_drv=1)

 nv_disable=1 
Kext Dev Mode:

 kext-dev-mode=1 
Rootless Mode:  Do not boot with this on El Capitan or macOS Sierra

 rootless=0  If you're stuck at [PCI Configuration Began]:

 npci=0x2000   npci=0x3000 
Set Maximum Memory (RAM): (In megabytes)

 maxmem=4096   maxmem=8192 
Troubleshooting: If you are having any trouble, first try this string. It works on a lot of systems with Intel HD Graphics to get into the OS X Installer from a Unibeast USB.

Hackintosh iMessage Tutorial

iMessage Tutorial on El Capitan and Yosemite Works on OS X 10.10+ Requires Clover boot loader, and has been tested up to macOS 10.12
Clover Configurator: http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download/


Sometimes Necessary: Set Up Network Configuration
IMPORTANT:Make sure that your primary network is set as en0. A lot of the time, this is a major issue and is often overlooked. If you use WiFi as your primary network, it has to be en0. Open System Profiler, click Ethernet or Wifi, depending on how you receive your internet, and make sure the network is listed as en0. If not, delete NetworkInterfaces.plist and Preferences.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration.  In many cases, this is unnecessary.


How To Get iMessage Working on Yosemite and El Capitan Download Clover Configurator and run the program.

For the tutorial, I've selected the iMac 8,1, but I do not recommend it.
