Hello, I'm already three weeks trying to OSX on my new bought HP Envy 15t j051nr, I have iATKOS M, ML3, and so forth already tried, always unsuccessfully, I know it's a difficult hack but am a bit thinking that it is impossible to get OSX on my laptop, I  been looking at this part of the forum for solutions without success, the farthest I get is that the install wheel from apple install continues rotate, and perform no further installs. 
I can use all the advice and help, thanks in advance, and thumbs up for your work.

Has anyone else experienced HD4600 graphical glitches starting with the 10.9.4 update? For the record, up until 10.9.4, using 0600260a has been working great. Odd.
UPDATE: Since Mavericks' release, i've kept a list of Azul FB changes for my ig-platform-id and I made a patch to revert the current (10.9.4) AzulFB back to the way it was on 10.9.2. I recall having graphical issues after 10.9.3 too and since I remember running 10.9.2 basically flawlessly, this was the most logical update to choose for this. After the patch is applied and the cache rebuilt, I am no longer having graphical weirdness like I was before. I'll keep an eye on it and update this if something goes wrong. Oh and of course, I added my HDMI audio patch to it as well and that is also once again functioning normally. ;-p

I'd still like to know if others are experiencing this too though. If this is indeed affecting multiple people, I will add it to the first post.

How about HDA issues? My audio has stopped working as of the 10.9.4 update. I did discover that it works fine if I boot without caches but a rebuild/normal boot will break it again. Anyone else or is this just me? I need to figure out if this is just a setup error on my part or if this is affecting multiple people.

I'm starting to wonder if my BIOS update to F.56 broke some things...Cuz, that would suck. Thanks! ^_^

UPDATE: I goofed! It only needed a required DSDT that I missed and forgot to add back in. Audio is back to working order again. Oops, but it happens. Worth noting that my DSDT slip up did NOT affect the graphic issues I was having. I can still see them if booting w/o caches.

Hi gygabyte666 actually I have the same graphic glitches on 10.9.3 as yours! It would be great if you could upload your Azul FB patch!

Shame you're experiencing the same issue. I was really hoping others were free from it. Thanks for letting me know. ^_^

 

The first post has been updated with the patch and more detailed info about the issue itself. Now then, you have two options here:

 

1) You could just replace the Azul kext from 10.9.3/10.9.4 with the working one from 10.9.2 and that should fix the issues.

 

-OR-

 

2) You could update to 10.9.4 and then use the patch I put together to do the same thing. This method just keeps /S/L/E clean and free of modifications. My patch also fixes the FB to make HDMI audio work properly. Here is the Clover patch:

After adding the patch to your config.plist, be sure to boot without caches and rebuild everything and you should be good to go. Enjoy! :D

Hello gygabyte,

 

You have been very helpful so far in my efforts to get OSX Mavericks working on my HP Envy 17t-k000 that I just recently bought, however, I have failed each time trying the process, and I believe it is in part because I am unfamiliar with the kind of patching that needs to be done with my system to get it to work.

 

I've read the entire thread and still don't have a concise step-by-step method for installing OS X Mavericks on my Envy. If I could just get the system installed (create a bootable USB with the correct patches and bootloader, and know the correct boot flags), then I am confident I can easily handle the post installation. 

 

As I am new to this, my question is simply what steps do I need to take with the configuration files you uploaded to get this working?

Actually, I was kind of overwhelmed by the breadth of all the information out there that I was scared to quite start. 

 

I am happy to report I almost have an installed Mavericks installation on my HP Envy, I am now just working through the IOBluetoothHCI -- completed: start error. I am positive from reading and my observations it is only my graphics card, so I am working through removing some kexts and then booting with GraphicsEnabler=No afterwards. 

 

I have your system files for the HP Envy (albeit a bit older), but I only used RehabMan's Kernel Path for the NullCpuPowerManagement issue with the Haswell processor reboot problem. As soon as I get this working, I am going to start working through your files and getting my system up and running. 

 

I never had to modify my BIOS to get this far, and as I understand you have NOT replaced your board correct? Still the HP motherboard with Insyde I assume. Definitely saved me some time.

 

As soon as I have progress I will update you and the rest of the thread and we can compare our systems if you like, as mine is just a newer version of your HP (I just had it custom built in early July).

I have an Intel HD4400 integrated card and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M discrete card. I've read that the HD4400 is not natively supported, so how do I enable only the NVIDIA card? I used MyHack to create the USB installer and can get booted to the error described in my last post, but not past it. 

 

Can anyone help with this?

I will keep this simple. MyHack and the tools from that site are not supported or endorsed by this forum. 9/10, cries for help using those tools fall on deaf ears around here. If you continue relying on them, then you should seek assistance using their forum instead.
