2048x1280 for a 1024x640 (HiDPI)

Well, all I know is, they(nvidia and nvidia team in apple) added new mechanism in nvidia drivers onwards the 10.8.4 and later (including 10.9), to check the added or overridden resolutions. I had to revert to the older nvidia drivers from 10.8.3 while I'm being on 10.8.4 and 10.8.5 and it did work. But for 10.9 I'm out of luck. The old drivers aren't even linking on the 10.9… I already tried the nvidia web drivers too.

Ok, not need anymore, i found out how to get HiDPI on Retina Macbook Smbios:

 

You need to use

00000B40 00000654 00000001 00200000

instead of

00000B40 00000654 00000001

in the description. (just add 00200000 at the end)

 

Example as Picture (Attached)

hi! i tried this in 10.10.1 to get my external TV to work. i want it to run at 1360x786 and 2040x1180 (both resolutions run fine with windows)

 

so i created this file:

 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

        <key>IODisplayEDID</key>

                </data>

        </array>

</dict>

It stopped working for me too from the 10.8.3 through 10.9.* up to 10.10.2. They added new mechanisms to check the resolution overrides. They can't exceed, what the monitor reports as his maximum.

One can invest time and test following:

- Extract EDID

- edit EDID so the max. supported resolution is higher than what your monitor supports

- override the display resolution like so in this thread

- (optional) maybe it is necessary to use https://code.google....xel-clock-patch
