The only thing that SwitchResX has is the ability to choose higher refresh rates. I'm not sure if this can solve your screen issue. It's worth a try. As far as I know, there doesn't seem much for you to do now since your telling me no combinations make a difference.

SwitchresX seems able to make my monitor stable. I tried various values in custom resolution but I don't know what those mean. Do you know how to set and what is important? Now i can see display, isnt cut in vertical, but it is moved in horizontal some about 200 poixels, and waves...

@biLLy0o,

You have to mess with the Front Porch, Sync Width and Back Porch for Horizontal.

Try reducing Front and Back Porch these affect the position where screen starts and ends.

 

Can you post a screenshot ( mobile phone ) so I can see exactly what your getting?

 

I've been using Switch.. to set up my external monitor for VGA because every mode above

1280x1024 always looks distorted at default values.

 

@Ghost..,

 

Regarding using the AAPL,OS.. yes you are right people with only CI can use this to

get VGA with full QE/CI using the FB with VGA+LCD. ( This is with Mountain Lion up to 10.8.5 )

 

The only problem is changing from laptop mode ( internal display ) with only CI to external mode ( with only VGA ) with QE/CI.

 

The only way I found to get this working is using two different Extensions and Kext Caches folders and running scripts to move these

and rebooting and then pressing your laptop keys to change to only outputing on VGA.

 

Best regards,

voidRunner

Hi,

I tried to enable full CI/QE on my laptop in signature after installing 10.9 GM. Every Framebuffer kext I install (also patching) I have Quartz exterme but not Core Image! In 10.8.5 nothing worked, in 10.8.4 I had the contrary, CI enabled with right resolution 1366x768x32, but not QE, I didn't see any video. Now I see the videos and I have transparent finder bar, but resolution is still 1280x720. Furthermore if I open finder i see correct windows, but if I move them they interlace and I can't see anything inside.

Some help?

The kext taken from the first page of this guide,

 

the "Intel HD Graphics QE/CI 10.9", here

https://mega.co.nz/#...n8johAHPucvG_og

 

I tried to patch the framebuffer unmodified kext with giofrida's patcher, but it was useless with all the patcher's options

Why are you adding strings to the ExcludeList? You don't need to do that. Also delete Natit and try to patch your DSDT. You have to abandon Natit someday. If you want, you can look for your patch frame buffer in my 10.9 QE/CI zip archive.

Ok I reinstall Mavericks GM, take frame buffer from your zip archive in first page, patch my DSDT, and i don't have QE/CI. With Mountail Lion and Mavericks DP works always, but now not. Why???

Edit: After install all kexts in 10.9 zip, and not only framebuffer, QE/CI works

Yeah your suppose to install all the kexts and 1 framebuffer from my 10.9 QE/CI zip. I thought people knew that  :P  I highly recommend using Kext Utility to install these kexts. It should avoid errors.

Where are the kexts for CI only for 10.9?  There is still only 10.8.5 as an option while the kexts for QE/CI are available for 10.8.5 and 10.9.

In OS X 10.9 Mavericks, CI only is natively supported. All you have to do is delete "AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB" and "AppleIntelHDGraphicsGA" kexts. I'll provide the kexts as a download but you don't really need them.

Thanks.  I kind of need them now since I deleted them.  Thank you very much again for everything.

So it turns out that the Mavericks GM that people were asking me to patch wasn't the final build. -_- Great now I have to reinstall everything. I'm deleting the links for Intel HD Graphics 10.9 kexts. They're useless now. You'll see the links again when I know Apple has offically released the final build of OS X Mavericks.

Yours is an excelent job. If i may help you i tell you something. as you know mine is not a first generation intelhd igpu but with mavericks kets (SNBFB and FBcapri) downloaded from osx86.net (probably patched) and switchres X there is a big difference with the ones from my mac mini. The vanilla mini ones don't allow resolution over the native one 1366x768. But obviously QE/CI is not fully working. Another thing is that any video is correctkly played, no artifact, no glitches. I think you are not far to solve QE/CI to any Intel IGPU. Great

I'll upload the new Intel HD Graphics patched kexts over the weekend. OS X Mavericks is offically released so I always recommend getting the latest verison of OS X on your PC. There should be no excuse since the OS is free now lol. Sure it can be a scary thing to update because you may have kernel panics and stuff, but if you remember what kexts to patch, what DSDT to use, then upgrading should not be a problem. Eventually you'll develop a strategy on how to update your PC with the latest updates and releases of OS X and it won't be scary anymore! :)

 

OS X is a great operating system when you have everything stable and working. In terms of innovation on the desktop, Apple is leading the way. I'm not saying Windows is terrible, but Micro$oft is abandoning the desktop experience and made a complete mess. That's what made me mad about them and why I joined the Hackintosh world.

You cannot have OS X Mavericks GM Build 13A598. This build will not recieve any OS updates other than software updates like iLife. Whether they change some things in the kexts are unknown but again to be on the safe side use the 2nd GM or download the officially released build from the App Store. No other choice.

I downloaded already. The questions was about versioning the 603 has the same build number of 598 for appleintelhd.kext an FB. I will make a new installation using those kext and report back.

Why not just patch the original kexts? I don't see what the problem is...

I still can't get QE on mavericks. When i patch the default frame buffer, i have no QE/CI, 1024x768 res. When i patch frame buffer from 10.8.5, i have 1366x768 res, but without QE. Am i doing something wrong? 10.7-10.8.5 version works perfectly.

 

Oh wait, i didn't see change log.

Hmm, well are you typing your password correctly when it prompts you to? Also check the framebuffer kext. Maybe the framebuffer is corrupted. Look inside the kext for AppleIntelHDGraphicsfb.exe
