mac osx is highly specific hardware dependent.. as Iraqi tech EFI works ONLY for Cube i7 stylus but not work at all for cube i7 book,, what i know is that the @kimkwanka ‘s efi from 6 posts is really works for Cube i7 book (with limitation) as she said,, don’t know whether it can work also or not for mixplus.. just try it & post any news if you done..July 5, 2017 at 7:03 am #68751
OS X always was very hardware dependent. Still, I had good experiences earlier with hackintoshes using kinda standard hardware (which all those kaby lake Tablets / notebooks have, except for special things like camera, touchscreen) with custom EFIs and a few custom drivers.
Unfortunately I´m out of this area since quite some time and fear that i don´t have the time to do this myself now.
On another front: is there any possibility to speed up MacOS X in a VM? Especially 2D-acceleration?
I now have a VM with High Sierra running on VirtualBox on the mix plus and Screen-updates are slow; the rest isn´t really fast, either, but acceptable.July 7, 2017 at 7:48 pm #68866

Now using VMWare for the MacOS Virtual Machine – this does work better / faster than VirtualBox. Still no gfx-acceleration.July 13, 2017 at 1:06 am #69137James DeenParticipant

Sorry, but this is probably the most ridiculous question that i have ever seen. There is no way we could get something that does not even open source.July 13, 2017 at 7:58 pm #69190Rohan ElwadhiParticipant

Sorry?….Do some research before you comment that this is a ridiculous question. Hackintosh is a thriving and popular thing to do:
Also the Cube i7 Stylus has full OSX working:July 13, 2017 at 8:36 pm #69192
OSx works fine on cube i7 book. The efi is a few posts back. There are a couple of things that don’t work, like wifi, but you can get a mini wifi dongle for $7 and it is fine. You also don’t have a kext for sd card, but it is probably doable, just needs more attention. The efi is the key, with that you have qe/ci and you can do most everythingJuly 24, 2017 at 8:06 pm #69617heisenberghdfParticipant

So, any news about the sound or anything?July 24, 2017 at 8:35 pm #69618
Sound works through headphones and bluetooth, just not speakers, but there are ways to patch the kext, look for patches from rehabman or voodookext patches for audioDecember 10, 2018 at 5:41 am #148952Heru NurParticipant

This post is kinda old, but I hope this helps whoever that still is looking at this tablet with hackintosh.
Since there wasn’t much support for this tablet, I just went ahead and enabled this hardware with Mac OS.
Though the config I’m using is OpenCore 0.5.8 (latest) + Mac OS Catalina (latest)
You can see and get the work from here: https://github.com/leopck/ChuWi-Cube-i7-Book-Hackintosh/
I managed to boot it up but there are sadly quite a few things that still doesn’t work, I haven’t had the time to look into them just yet.
